Speaking of Vanity Fair, Joanna interviewed the director of the “controversial” Coke commercial (controversial only to racists), who also happened to be the director of Lawless, starring Shia LaBeouf. Joanna asked him about Shia. Hillcoat managed to get through the entire answer without uttering the word douchebag, a testament to his class and restraint. (Vanity Fair)
