Have you talked to Ari about this?
Shapiro: I've sneakily mentioned it a few times. Like, "Oh, if you're not doing anything with it, I'll just keep it in a fruit bowl. It will be really fun." I really want it though. Halloween's my favorite holiday and there are so many cool things I could do with it.
What do you think of the "creepy kid" archetype that a number of people have lumped Charlie into? Was that something you had in your mind? Was it something you were trying to avoid?
Shapiro: I think it's interesting that people are putting her in the creepy kid genre and it makes a lot of sense that they are categorizing her like that. But I think the reason that people categorize her with the creepy kids is because she does do things that are strange and that they don't really understand and that they usually see morally as wrong. It's very interesting that the kids that are categorized in the "creepy kid" genre usually, to me, they're not really that creepy, per se, they are more just misunderstood and in a bad circumstance. Usually the thing that makes them so creepy is kids are seen as innocent, so when they do things the average person doesn't think is morally right, it makes them creepy, because it makes you feel like something's wrong. But to them, usually, they're not trying to be creepy, which is something I don't think a lot of people really think about. Because to them they're just being themselves. Kids are always the most true to their personality, so it's really interesting because to them, they're not a creepy kid -- they are just a kid.
