Quote of the Day (Chris Evans, on Jerks Being 'Marinated' in Entitlement)

“There’s a certain physicality of a person who is soaked in confidence, truly marinated in that kind of entitlement. And it involves minimal eye contact, a constant state of recline, whether they’re sitting or standing…an unapologetic physicality [where] they make the space their own. They’re gonna put their f—ing feet up, they’re gonna own their oxygen in a way that is not just confidence, it’s an active indifference to the people around them. Which is a real weaponized trait.”—Actor Chris Evans, on embodying a jerk in Knives Out, quoted by Clarissa Cruz, “How to Be a Jerk,” Entertainment Weekly, November 2019
