I’m sorry, guys, I just can’t get enough of Beanie Feldstein. Every time she opens her mouth I just fall more and more in love with her and I don’t really know what to do with all this love except share it with you, so here we are.

The Lady Bird and Hello, Dolly! star sat down with Jimmy Fallon last night for the second time, and they discussed how she landed her first role on Broadway, how she makes her parents kvell (bonus points for use of Yiddish), koala bear-hugging Saoirse Ronan, and also that time she was 5 and played “understudy Annie” in a theater production that basically took place in a jungle gym and there’s actual footage and she really “uses her shoulders” and OH MY GOD IT’S SO GOOD just watch:

OK, that’s all. I’ll just be here waiting for the next Beanie update, thanks.
