If you’ve ever seen Spike Jonze’s Her, you may recall those moments when Joaquin Phoenix’s Theodore mentally sinks into a place of comfort and safety that is derived from speaking to someone with whom one feels completely understood. I was reminded of this when I concluded my Zoom call with Chris Pine, a man after my own heart, it seems. We logged on at 9.30am in his time zone (in Los Angeles), and there he was, fully rigged up in suit and tie. “I wasn’t going to do a call with you and not bring my A game,” he said. I was in love. Before I knew it, much time had passed and we hadn’t quite finished talking.
