Jack Black Talks About Love for Charlyne Yi's Paper Heart

As part of a promotion for the summer indie comedy Paper Heart, comedian Charlyne Yi and her "fake" director went and interviewed a few other celebrities and comedians and asked them about love. In this short little video, they talk with Jack Black. It stars out on the right track, but soon derails, as the director tries to take hold and turn it into something it isn't. This actually mirrors the movie itself in a great way, as the documentary (which you can see the trailer for here) follows Charlyne Yi as she accidentally falls in love with Michael Cera, but then the director gets in the way and tries to turn it into something it isn't. Enjoy!
Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says. Paper Heart follows Charlyne as she embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn’t fully understand.
Paper Heart is directed by first-time filmmaker Nicholas Jasenovec. The screenplay was co-written by Jasenovec and Charlyne Yi, a stand up comedian who you may recognize from her cameos in Knocked Up or Semi-Pro. This debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year and won the Waldo Scott Screenwriting Award. Overture Films will be bringing Paper Heart to limited theaters starting on August 7th this year.
