Still, the sloth that Ezra Miller is examining looks awfully happy.
What keeps Miller so honest and emotionally vivid, whether he is starring in a small film or speeding through massive tentpoles? In large part, it is Larson, whom Miller has known since middle school, and with whom he started the band Sons of an Illustrious Father.
“We’ve been in some of those situations together, w my friends have stood between me and a violent aggressor,” Miller says, recalling a night when a man chased him and his bandmates outside their concert venue until Larson turned the tables.
Aubin is bearded and quieter than his bandmates, but it’s clear that spending the last few years with Miller and Larson has had a profound effect on him.
“It’s hard to talk about your fear, even to people really close to you,” Miller says, adding that he spent years wrestling with issues he has not spoken about publicly until now.
She will Photoshop us into several prehistoric scenarios: In one photo, the band is running from dire wolves, and in another, Miller tries to save me as I sink into sludge.
Near the end of the show, the band members step away from their instruments to perform an a cappella cover, and Miller and Larson close their eyes as Aubin puts his hands over his heart.
