In 2009, director Wes Anderson and actors Meryl Streep and Jason Schwartzman promoted the theatrical release of “Fantastic Mr. Fox”, giving inshight on shooting – and voicing – the film. The event was hosted by Rolling Stone Magazine’s Peter Travers. Meryl told a funny anecdote on seeing a fox while staying in London.

I was in London shooting a film before I got the offer to do [Fantastic Mr. Fox]. And I was living on a little muse and I was in the third floor. And I came home very late at night, I was in my bathroom and I looked out and down the muse, which is in the central of London – in the lamplight – was a fox. My window was wide open, cause it was Summer, and it went like this [staring]. And we looked at each other for twelve minutes. Twelve minutes. I had my little clock. And I kept looking. But we didn’t break our, you know, engagement, for that amount of time. It was so surreal. I have never looked in an animal’s eyes that long. My dog won’t look at me that long. And it was really weird. And I thought about that all the time we did the recording. (Meryl Streep)
