Paris Can Wait star Diane Lane and writer/director Eleanor Coppola join host Robin Milling. The two ladies collaboration had been several years in the making -- Lane knows Coppola since she was 17 working with her husband Francis Ford on such films as The Outsiders and Rumble Fish. So when it came time to cast her leading lady in her debut film Lane said 'yes' to the story based on Coppola's food and wine road trip to Paris that she experienced many years ago.
Diane tells Robin any thoughts of maintaining a healthy lifestyle went out the car window as she enjoyed the joie de vivre of eating, drinking and pure joy of making the film with Coppola. Eleanor tells Robin even the catering on the set was just as fine for the crew so they wouldn't feel envious of what the actors were eating and drinking.
Paris Can Wait also stars Alec Baldwin as Lane's husband and French actor Arnaud Viard who introduces Lane's character to a culinary experience she wlll never forget.
