Interview for the ‘Independent’

Andrew gave a new interview for the ‘Independent’ while promoting ‘Under the Silver Lake’. You can check that out here and some highlights below.

On Twitter, I have an account that I use to follow news and certain people. I don’t have an official account or anything like that but I use it because I like to know what’s going on. But it gets so addictive.” Like a voyeur? “Yeah, I suppose. I’m not participating but I’m just kind of watching. People are very funny on it too – like Rob Delaney.”
