Squibb, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her turn as Dern’s feisty, outspoken wife in the Alexander Payne dramedy, said she had a ball working with Dern. “Bruce is heaven. He’s got a wicked sense of humor, and he teases me all the time.”
She continued, “We were at a screening one night and people were coming up to me saying, ‘I heard you were a pole dancer.’ I said, ‘I was never a pole dancer.’
Mario joked, “Are you sure, June?” Squibb smiled, “I’ve done a lot of things, but not pole dancing… I asked, ‘Who told you that?’ They said Bruce, so I went over and said, ‘Bruce, why are you telling people I'm a pole dancer?’ and he said, ‘You were a stripper in ‘Gypsy’ on Broadway, what's the difference?’”
