Do you remember where were on November 9th, 2016? Oh yes, that’s the day after the 2016 presidential election where everything in the world suddenly looked…not great.

There’s a wide range of things you maybe did that day to cope with the impending doom election results, and if you were part of the Ocean’s 8 cast you put on a happy face and went to work. The film was still currently shooting at the time, and even worse (…or maybe for the better), November 9th was the first day all the ladies were shooting together on set, which means that yes, that they could find solace in one another. And that’s exactly what they did. And TBH, on November 9th if I could have hugged Sarah Paulson and held her tight, I would have.

Ahead of the movie’s release in theaters, HelloGiggles jumped on the phone with Ocean’s 8 co-writer, Olivia Milch. When asked about a stand out moment filming the movie, Milch goes right to the election.

Honestly, just hearing that story makes ME forget about what happened, too. That day also had an effect on Milch, because it reminded her about the wonders of movie magic.

Another moment that stuck out for Milch was just about every time they shot in the Met, because it meant watching “Sarah Paulson walking down the steps,” which sounds like a great way to spend any afternoon. Ocean’s 8 hits theaters on June 8th, friends.
