Patty Jenkins Stops By Conan To Talk About Her Perfect Life And Record Shattering Movie

Patty Jenkins dropped by “Conan” last night to talk about what it’s like to be at the center of the record-breaking (for a female director) film of the moment.

“I can’t imagine another movie that could get 13-year-old girls and 73-year-old women and 55-year-old men and creeps like me to – everybody’s on-board,” Conan said about the film.

I can think of many movies that transcend age and gender (has he ever seen the 2000 remake of “Rat Race”? Clearly not.) but that’s a listicle for another time.

“It feels like a long time coming,” said Jenkins of the making of ‘Wonder Woman.’ “I wish that the movie had happened a long time ago.”

Jenkins said the success the movie has seen is “surreal” and that she’s already looking forward to the sequel, which it’s rumored will be taking place in the good, old U.S. of A. That little piece of trivia should make Fox News very happy
