Pharrell Williams on Despicable Me 2: It’s not a child’s movie, it’s a human movie
Pharrell Williams is the lucky, lucky guy that not only got to work on the music for the hilarious and much-adored Despicable Me, but also the newly-released sequel, Despicable Me 2! We caught up with the world-famous producer to chat to him about all things music, Minion, Michael Jackson and more…
Can you imitate Mr Gru?
It has been a while so I won’t embarrass myself, but ‘uurrrr’ a little bit. I’m decent at it!
After producing the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, would you like to act in any movies yourself?
I’m just having such a ball with music, you know? I think you know that and the design projects I have, I dunno. I am happy, I am thankful for where I am. I don’t think that it is possible to juggle one more thing.
If you were to star in a movie who would be your leading lady?
Probably Charlize (Theron).
What do you think has been up there recently with a really strong score or soundtrack?
I have to say that I am still blown away with Hans Zimmer’s Dark Knight score, it was amazing. He took such a radical approach, it was more about the sounds and the composition than it was just using conventional methods. I just thought it was awesome and I learned so much from him.
