“Crazy Rich Asians and A Sim­ple Fa­vor were each a mas­ter class in film­mak­ing, and I had so much fun work­ing with all my costars. Con­stance Wu is so ded­i­cated, Anna Ken­drick is ridicu­lously funny, and Blake Lively is mag­netic.”

MEET­ING THE PAR­ENTS

The for­mer travel-show host has hit the big screen, up­ping the swoon fac­tor in Crazy Rich Asians and the stylish thriller A Sim­ple Fa­vor (Septem­ber 14).
