Licorice Pizza, which stars Alana Haim as Alana Kane and Cooper Hoffman as Gary Valentine, is a coming-of-age film that follows the duo as they grow up, have adventures and ultimately fall in love in California’s San Fernando Valley in the 1970s.
“I honestly thought I was going to get fired every day because I had no idea what I was doing,” Haim told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show in December of her acting debut. Instead, she earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role.
Haim’s role was written specifically for her by Anderson, and she also revealed that she had to go to “truck school” for a scene in which she drives Bradley Cooper around in a 1970s manual transmission moving van.
“I’m a terrible driver, and I didn’t tell anybody that I was a bad driver. And then it came the day that I had to, you know, do it, I had to drive this truck and I had Bradley Cooper… America’s sweetheart and [co-star and fellow first-time actor] Cooper Hoffman,” she joked to Fallon.
