Rashida said:

“I think growing up in the 70s and the 80s probably fixed a lot of problems that in your head you would imagine because there’s no social media, there’s no technology basically except for landlines and Betamax,”

“I was definitely aware that you know, the people around me were beloved worldwide, but not really because there was no Internet,”

“I want nothing more than to hug Marlon, I love Marlon, but like I can’t, we can’t take that chance. It was Bill’s 70th birthday that would have been not cool,”
