I know Julia Garner from her role on The Americans, and she’s in so many movies and shows. Julia, 25, was on Late Night with Seth Meyers to promote her role in The Assistant with Matthew Macfadyen, which is at Sundance now. I just saw the trailer and it looks riveting but hard to take. Julia told some good stories about the fact that none of her classmates believed her when she said she had been away filming movies. The production schedule is so long that it took a year for them to realize she was telling the truth.
On people in high school thinking she was lying
In high school everyone thought I was a pathological liar. Movies come out like a year later. [I said] I was going to the Sundance film festival. They’re like ‘you’re lying, you’re not in movies.’ A year later they saw me in a trailer. They finally realized I wasn’t a pathological liar.
You got married last week?
It wasn’t last week, it was like a month ago, but it basically was like yesterday. It’s been crazy.
What were you more excited about, the husband or The Emmy?
Everything. It’s really hard because 2019, when it ended I was like ‘it’s all downhill from here.’

She is adorable and I thought it was so cute that she didn’t know what to be more excited about, her marriage or her Emmy. She won that for Ozark, which I haven’t seen. A lot of my friends watch it but I couldn’t get into it after the first episode. As for her classmates thinking she was lying, that’s so typical of teenagers. To us a year goes by quickly but to them it’s forever and so much can change in that time. Also they’re skeptical and seem to give each other a hard time a lot. My teenager makes me feel old, he really does.
Oh and Julia married Mark Foster, 35, from Foster the People last month as she mentioned. Here’s their wedding photo. I got married on December 27 too. I’m divorced now, but that was my anniversary.
Here’s Julia’s interview!
