Everyone needs their "Happy Song." For Paul Thomas Anderson, his joy comes from Carly Rae Jepsen.
"The Master" filmmaker admitted his love for "Call Me Maybe" while speaking with an Australian interviewer. "That is the song that I need to hear to make me happy again," he said. "That song makes me so happy when I hear it."
Hmm ... does Aimee Mann know that Anderson is cheating on her?
We agree with Vulture in that we're now picturing an alternate ending to "The Master" in which Philip Seymour Hoffman serenades Joqauin Phoenix with a little Carly Rae rather than "Slow Boat to China." Maybe also an added scene where Hoffman gets hot and bothered as Phoenix mows the lawn?
You can listen to the complete interview on Movie City News. And you can watch the video for "Call Me Maybe" below. We'll certainly never watch it the same way again.
