Speaker 1 (00:00):
I am all in you. I am all in with
Scott Patterson an iHeartRadio podcast. Hey everybody, Scott Patterson, I

(00:22):
am all in Podcast one eleven productions. iHeartRadio, Art Media.
iHeart podcasts. One on one interview with Vanessa Branch, who
played Bobby for two episodes Gilmore Girls. This is season seven,
episode five, The Great Stink, and we will get back
to Vanessa after these messages. Vanessa, Hello, Hi, thank you

(00:51):
so much for joining us. Really appreciate the time. We
had a very good time watching your scenes. They were iconic,
I have to say, in the in the Gilmour universe,
those were that was Those were iconic scenes that that
That scene you did in the restaurant was absolutely fantastic.

(01:13):
And after I saw it, I said, how did this
girl not become a star? Oh did you wonder that yourself?
I mean, not out of conceit, but you have so
much to offer that I was stunned that you you
didn't have a bigger career. Was it because you chose

(01:34):
not to pursue it with real ferocity? You had other
things going on?

Speaker 2 (01:39):
Or you just Oh no, I mean I I pursued it.

Speaker 1 (01:42):
I did.

Speaker 2 (01:43):
I mean the past seven years I have not been acting.
That was a choice because I had a little man
who's my dream man, and I wanted to be able
to spend a lot of time with him. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Speaker 1 (01:55):
How old is he's seven?

Speaker 2 (01:58):
Yeah?

Speaker 1 (01:59):
Yeah, another feeling. I have a nine year old son,
so I know.

Speaker 2 (02:02):
Yeah, and every minute you don't want to miss a minute,
Like I just now that he's this age, now I
feel like I could go back to work and actually
just started. She asked last week have my first audition
that I've had in god knows how long, right, But yeah,
I wanted to have that, you know, I want to
have that time to save it. It's too fast.

Speaker 1 (02:20):
It's too fast. Yeah, isn't it crazy? My guy is
going to be ten in June, and it's just it's
just like a blink of an eye and another blink
of an eye is going to be off to college.

Speaker 2 (02:31):
It's like they're a little bit of a different person,
and you go through a little bit of a grieving
process and no one really tells you that, you know,
mm hmmm.

Speaker 1 (02:39):
Right, Yeah. What I do is that my phone is
filled with videos for when he was two and three
and four and five. I watch them all the time
I do. I actually, when I'm on the road, I
watch these things incessantly. He's sick of me at this
point because I you know, I FaceTime him five times
a day. He goes, Yeah, Dad, what's it? What's up?

(03:01):
But anyway, so you're an actress in a model you're
best known for you were the Orbit Gum gal from
two thousand and two to two thousand and ten, eight
years of Orbit Gum gigs. That is a great thing
to snare.

Speaker 2 (03:15):
You were a lot forty five commercials.

Speaker 1 (03:18):
Yeah wow, wow wow wow. Yeah, residuals, too residual.

Speaker 2 (03:25):
So I was under contract, which was actually a lot better.

Speaker 1 (03:27):
A lot better. Yeah, that's nice. And you were gaelling
the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Hello, so you did
do some big stuff. All right, here we go.

Speaker 2 (03:41):
Tell me.

Speaker 1 (03:42):
I want to talk about the Orbit Gum stuff. Those
commercials were iconic. What was it like working on that
campaign for so long? Tell me how you got it.

Speaker 2 (03:52):
The thing that's really cool about that campaign, and then
I'll tell you how I got it was that it's
a really funny story. Actually is that you know, depending
on what you watch as far as TV shows go,
and there's so many TV shows nowadays or films. There's
so much out there, but depending on what you watch
depends if people know who you are. But that Orbit

(04:12):
campaign was everywhere and everybody knew. It's one of the
best selling campaigns in history. And so it was funny
because in person, people don't recognize me because I speak
with the British accent in those as I did on
Gollmer Girls, and I actually am British, but I was
raised back and forth. So for me, it's kind of
like being bilingual. It's hard to explain to people that
you can switch like that, but with an accent we can,

(04:34):
and so you know, it would be neat for me.
In person. People wouldn't recognize me, but people would be
talking about it. People were dressing up as me at Halloween,
and you know, and I liked being anonymous. I loved
that people would like be talking in the grocery store
line about like how much their boyfriend loved the Orbit
gum girl and they didn't feel threatened by her because
they loved her too, And I was like, I know,

(04:55):
she's so cute, right, Oh, I love that girl, And
so it was really cool to be able to do
something like that that, you know, it's kind of part
of pop culture, you know, right.

Speaker 1 (05:07):
Now, when when you go back to London or England,
do you speak with a British accent?

Speaker 2 (05:14):
No, although it's very hard for me to not switch
into it, so sometimes I will. It's it's a weird
it's a weird thing because it is. The minute I'm
surrounded by it, I want to, you know, I kind
of do switch. But then I think, right, well, I've
been speaking this way for a while, and I don't know,
it's it's weird.

Speaker 1 (05:33):
It's a little weird, right, But it's easy to slip
in and out of it, right, Yeah, no problem, all right.
So the commercials are very clever. What was the craziest
thing he had to do on those commercials?

Speaker 2 (05:44):
We actually did a lot of crazy things. We shot.
We shot them all over the world. We would go
a bunch of places, and we did one with an
Ostrich and one with a whole thing of penguins. But
like literally I was in the penguin pool and penguins
bite and they were like swimming all around and I
had boots on a pie. But the crazier one was
with the Ostrich because you know Ostrich can be kind

(06:06):
of dangerous. And there was supposed to be an Ostrich
running towards my back, like straight into camera, and the
guy said, don't worry, I'll stop the ostriche before I
don't freak out though, because ostriches, you know, can be dangerous.
And he was the Ostrich wrangler, and that's a job,
an ostrich wrangler. And I was looking at the camera

(06:27):
and I can see the reflection in the back of me,
and the Ostrich comes kind of like charging towards me,
and the guy misses when he went to kind of
grab the Ostrich, and the Ostrich is still like running
straight in my head like full force, and they're big,
and I remember thinking, like, just stay still, just stay still.

Speaker 1 (06:45):
They said he's still.

Speaker 2 (06:46):
And then some other guy came out like just before
it got to me and tackle the Ostrich and it
was hilario was hilarious my camera.

Speaker 1 (06:52):
But don't don't they have a claw that's like three
or four inches long that they can yep you gab
you with. I mean, yeah, that's one of the boy
do you still do people ask you to say the
slogan at all all the time? What is the slogan?

Speaker 2 (07:09):
We refresh us, no pun intended. There there are a few.
Fabulous is one of them. Of course it sounds every
when I say it, you know, as the commercial goes
dirty mouth and clean it up. Those were the Those
were the slogan gotcha.

Speaker 1 (07:24):
Gotcha, gotcha? Do you still use Do they still send
you orbit gum? You're still chewing it up?

Speaker 2 (07:29):
They don't still send the orbit gum.

Speaker 1 (07:31):
They don't send you anymore. Yeah, all right, So now
let's get into good more girls. How'd you get the role?

Speaker 2 (07:41):
So it was regular kind of audition. I went in
to did my audition for it and felt like it
went really well, And afterwards heard from my manager. She said,
they thought you were great, They loved you, but they
felt that your British accent wasn't the right British act
that it was supposed to be an Oxford educated British accent.

(08:04):
And I thought a second. My parents were really sticklers
for language and grammar, and my mother had had elocution
lessons and that's the exact accent that I have. And
it's hard if you're American. You don't know the difference
between these things.

Speaker 1 (08:18):
Right, You can't I do I do? I do? You
you nailed it. Yeah, No, that was Oxford. It was Oxbridge,
as they say, and.

Speaker 2 (08:25):
So and so I said to my manager, I said, Flee,
will you please call them back and ask them to
see me again because I'm promising this is the right accent.
And she did, and to their credit, they said, okay,
let's bring in and meet the producers because we really
liked her. We just weren't sure. And then when I
came in, the producers were like, she's the one that's

(08:46):
define and I was so sweet that to their credit,
the casterders, they were so nice afterwards. They actually said
to me like, we're really sorry. We you know, we
apologized for that. That just didn't And I was like, God,
don't worry. Thank you for believing in me enough to
bring me back in after after you know you were
sure about that.

Speaker 1 (09:02):
But that was the part of the character that made
her so lethal. Was that was that that accent. And
you just knew exactly where she was from, you knew
exactly where she went to school. Yet she still had
this side of her where she was this like stunning
woman who could stand up and end a meeting and

(09:22):
know that that would be effective to close the deal
and talk about contrasting Rory. I mean, you gave off
such a cosmopolitan, worldly vibe, knowing vibe, and Rory was
just crushed underneath the weight of that. So the scene,
that's what was so great about that scene, that can't

(09:44):
contrast of it.

Speaker 2 (09:45):
We watched it. I rewatched it today. We're going to
be talking about it. And you know, you don't, you don't,
you're not often rewatching yourself all the time stuff that
you do. And it was really fun. It was so
fun because I remember that part was so fun and that,
you know, it's interesting being able to be because you know,
she was she was Bobby was obviously not really a threat.
She was really nice, but just the fact that oh.

Speaker 1 (10:08):
No, no, no, she was a threat? Are you kidding me? Well,
are you kidding me?

Speaker 2 (10:13):
Not in Bobby's eyes, maybe in Rory's eyes, but in
hurt right, And it was fun. It was fun seeing that,
remembering portraying that, you know, that kind of two sided thing.

Speaker 1 (10:27):
It was, you know, it was a it was film.
It's you know, once in a while that show gets
in does it gets a filmic thing going? That was film.
It was that was good film. What do you remember
about that? Shooting day.

Speaker 2 (10:43):
I remember it was super late. You know, the guys
were really fun, the other guys who were on it
as well, and everyone was incredibly nice. Alexis is a
really I actually ended up doing another job with her
shortly thereafter, on a film called Postgrad and she's and

(11:04):
she's a really very down to earth, you know, kind
human being. And you know, you meet some great people
in LA but not everyone that way, and she was
I remember her really being specifically. You know, we talked
a lot and I liked her a lot. Right, and
the fast talking everyone, of course, right, that's I'm sure

(11:25):
that's constant fast talking. You know how fast you got
to pick up, pick up the pace, don't leave any spaces,
all of that.

Speaker 1 (11:31):
It's the only note we ever got. We didn't get
any other notes, sure, because we always knew what the
director was going to say. Right, you want it faster, right, faster?
Got it? It's four am. I can't do it faster.
I want to go home. So when we recapped the episode,
we were a bit torn on that scene. If Rory
should have reacted the way she did when she found

(11:53):
out that you were a female colleague of logans Logans,
What What are your thoughts about that? Did you think
it was the right dynamic for the for the show.

Speaker 2 (12:04):
I kept wondering how he managed to not ever say
she that's a tough one, right.

Speaker 1 (12:08):
When you think about it, Yeah.

Speaker 2 (12:10):
It would have been tough. But do I think, look,
I get it from a young woman's perspective, totally get it.
Why maybe that would be that way? And so I
feel like it made sense, although I don't think he
was at fault, Like I didn't think he needed to.
I don't think that there was any reason for him
to specifically say, oh, she's a girl or she's a.

Speaker 1 (12:31):
Guy, right right, right right?

Speaker 2 (12:35):
Yeah.

Speaker 1 (12:35):
We we went back and forth on that for a
little while. All Right, so you've also been in three
of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. What was it
like working in those all those films? And what do
you think of it? It's controversy now that I think
I think I think Bruckheimer wants to distance himself from Johnny,

(12:56):
from Johnny Depp for some reason. What do you think
about all that? First of all, let's talk about what
it was like working on it.

Speaker 2 (13:02):
Working on those films was literally like a dream, because
when you're on a set with that kind of budget
and that kind of creativity and perfection. The first I
was in the first three, and then they did a
ten minute short film, Disney'd a ten minute short film
just about me and my partner in it, about our characters,

(13:22):
and it's the prequel to the first film, which cost
a million dollars that short. And the first movie was
shot in la and then second the third we shot
in Saint Vincent in the Caribbean. And I remember the
first day of shooting in the Caribbean and we'd be
taken by boat to they had this huge bay that

(13:42):
they had literally there was nothing modern there. You couldn't
see anything other than you know, beautiful beach and palm trees,
three gigantic, authentic pirate ships, and this whole town, Tortuga,
which they had created impeccably. And you know, it was
early sun rising, and they'd take us on this other
little speedboat to enter this bay which we hadn't seen yet,

(14:06):
and we're pulling into it and the sun is rising
over this as if we're entering, you know, a seventeenth
century village, so authentic. And I thought, if I told
my eight year old self that I was going to
get to do this one day. I wouldn't have believed that.
I always remembered that moment just because it was so mesmerizing.

(14:29):
It was an amazing moment.

Speaker 1 (14:31):
That's the top of the food chain in the film business.
I mean, it doesn't get bigger than that stuff.

Speaker 2 (14:37):
Yeah, And I made some great friends on it. And
Gore Verbinski was the director of the ones I did,
and he was so awesome to work with, and we
all would get to hang out. We're on this island.
It's just you know, there's not very many of us
working together, and it was it was tons of fun.
It would be up plate.

Speaker 1 (14:53):
Did you stay on the island?

Speaker 2 (14:55):
Yes?

Speaker 1 (14:55):
Yeah? Wow. So what was it like working with Johnny?
Did you get to work with Johnny? And he?

Speaker 2 (15:01):
I can all I can say from my personal experience
with him is that he is the loveliest human being.
He was kind to every single person on set, whether
they were working on the set or they were you know,
I mean anyone from the island who was there, anyone
who was doing background, anyone who was doing craft service

(15:21):
to everyone, and we would be you know how you
know what long hours you work with things. It was
ninety five degrees out. We had on authentic wool costumes
that were killing us. He was, I mean, it was
like you were drenched. We'd be like in the blazing
sun doing these scenes, and he was just he was lovely.
And we'd all hang out as well, you know, at
different times, and so you got to you know, see

(15:42):
each other other times. And I only ever knew him
to be the nicest man.

Speaker 1 (15:47):
You know. I always wondered because so many top musicians'
top bands embrace him. He's like, he's like friends with Aerosmith,
and he did an album with Jeff Beck. If you
can even imagine doing an album with Jeff Beck. He
I mean, I went to you know, Patty Smith and

(16:08):
I go back to the mid seventies and I went
to see her when she came out in LA a
couple of years ago, and Johnny was there too, and
he played a song or two with her on So
he's like, so you can't be a bad guy and
be welcomed by that range of people in that business,

(16:33):
you know, because they're extra sensitive about who they led
into their worlds because those are really exclusive worlds. So
he just always was.

Speaker 2 (16:44):
I mean, I didn't this is just my personal opinion.
And I didn't know Amber ever, but I felt like
if there was falsehood there, to me, it seemed it
was on the opposite side. But you know, life is weird.
Who knows. But that was my you know, my personal
experience with him was that he was always intelligent, interesting
and kind.

Speaker 1 (17:05):
Soft, very fascinating.

Speaker 2 (17:08):
I think about that with my I have a boy
who's a gentle boy, and Johnny was a gentle boy, right.

Speaker 1 (17:16):
Because hot, you know, you go on a talk show
and you're that quiet, that reserved, yet your presence is
such that nobody can take your eyes off you, but
their eyes off you and you're hysterically funny at the
same time by just holding everything back. I mean, that's it.

(17:36):
It's a superpower.

Speaker 2 (17:38):
And he also is I mean, talk about sexy that man.
If I like, if there is, if there is star quality,
I mean, I remember the first time I met him,
I like, you know, and I'm not one who's ever
been starstruck by much, you know. I I've always been
pretty grounded, and that was that was the first time
I saw trying not to droll all over myself.

Speaker 1 (18:10):
All right, So here's a few other fun facts about you, Vanessa.
Why fun fact you were Miss Vermont in nineteen ninety four.

Speaker 2 (18:23):
Let's just so crazy when I figure about it out,
And I did it. I actually won on a dare.
I'd never like done pageants before ever, never even thought
about it. I was modeling though through college to make money,
and my modeling agent had said to me, why don't
you do Why don't you do the Miss Vermont pageant
because you can win scholarship money to pay back school owns.
And I was like, what are you talking about? No way,

(18:45):
like I meet because I'm totally a durpball. I've always
been a durpball. I'm like not the girl to like
brush your hair and put on makeup. I just did
it especially for you. I like, like, you know, I'm
I'm out playing with boys. When I was a girl,
I was a tomboy. Like I'm just not that. But anyway,
she she one of my best friends. The morning of
the Miss Vermont pageant said to me, I doubled triple

(19:07):
dare you. And we'd been it was my senior year.
At the end of all the like that the last
week of partying, we'd been up all night long. We
sat in this disgusting bathroom. She painted my nails and
I went into the pageant, and I thought a fluke one.

Speaker 1 (19:21):
So you you went on to the So if you
won Miss Vermont, you were in the Miss America pageant, right, yeah?
And so what happened Miss America.

Speaker 2 (19:30):
I didn't win, you know if I won, right, But
it was a really it was actually a fascinating experience,
A fascinating experience to see behind something like that and
to see, you know, there's you have all sorts of
images of what these women are like and who they are,
and and to be very honest, it was an incredibly educated, interesting,

(19:51):
accomplished group of women. They all definitely wore more makeup
when we're cleaner than I was. But they were a really,
really amazing group of woman. One of my best friends
to this day I made she was Miss Tennessee and
we still, you know, see each other multiple times a
year and nice. Yeah, it was a really fascinating experience.

Speaker 1 (20:12):
App And you speak Mandarin Chinese, I speak Chinese and frenchship.
So you've been to China. You picked it up there,
you studied it.

Speaker 2 (20:20):
In college or I studied it in college, and I
studied there when I was in college, and then I've
worked there quite a few times. I've done a few
films in China for the Chinese market. I modeled in
Taiwan right after college.

Speaker 1 (20:36):
Oh wow, yeah wow. So acting was just a natural
progression from what you were doing before.

Speaker 2 (20:43):
No, I always knew. I knew at the age of
three I wanted to be an actress. Okay, always my thing.
It was always what I did. I went to I
went to Middlebury College in Vermont, and I had a
double major of Chinese in theater. Okay, So I always
knew that's what I that's what I wanted to do.

Speaker 1 (21:00):
Fantastic. So now you're going to get back into it.
You're excited, you get in some meetings, and is your
agent excited?

Speaker 2 (21:07):
I haven't. I didn't officially do it. It just kind
of happened. I've been working on something else that's a
true passion project of mine that's about to launch in
a few weeks. And it's taken me years to get
this finished. And that's what I was working on, apart
from being with my child, and I just recently thought,
you know, I think it's I think I'm going to

(21:29):
be ready. This is going to launch and I'm going
to be ready to do that. And I literally had
just had that thought and she called like three days later.

Speaker 1 (21:37):
What is the passion project? Can you talk about it?

Speaker 2 (21:40):
Yeah, it's called Fabulous Fit Pregnancy and it is a
subscription website for pregnancy fitness that I've shot all over
the world, really beautiful locations, because when I was pregnant,
I wanted to stay healthy and in shape and do
it was the right thing. And it was really hard
to find things that weren't super boring or shot in
someone's living room, or they weren't kind of modifying things
I thought safely, and so I created it. And it's,

(22:05):
like I said, shot and all sorts of places, takes
you every single day through pregnancy and then post pregnancy.
There's a whole like nutrition plan. It's twenty bucks a month.
It's really inspiring. You talk about different things about being
a mom and this kind of gorgeous transformation that happens
after that.

Speaker 1 (22:19):
And that's going to come out as.

Speaker 2 (22:24):
It's it's a website.

Speaker 1 (22:25):
It's it's not true.

Speaker 2 (22:26):
It's a yeah, so you can.

Speaker 1 (22:28):
It's you're launching a business basically.

Speaker 2 (22:30):
Okay doing and I've done and I've done literally, like
all parts of it, so it is taken an enormous
amount of time. But yeah, so that's it.

Speaker 1 (22:39):
That's exciting. What's it called.

Speaker 2 (22:40):
Again, Fabulous Fit Pregnancy.

Speaker 1 (22:42):
And it's going to be Fabulous Fit Pregnancy dot com. Yeh,
Fabulousfitpregnancy dot com. Yeah, make sure everybody check that out
because I've seen Vanessa's Instagram page account and yes, she
was all over the world, and it looks like a
very well involved endeavor. It looked like there was a

(23:06):
budget behind it. It was very professionally done, very professionally shot.
You had, you know, stylists and make up people and
hair people and I mean you really it was quite
a production.

Speaker 2 (23:20):
Yeah, I wanted it. I wanted women to feel like
they had an escape because sometimes that's the time when
you're you know, you're a little more homebound, and it's
nice to feel like you can get out and do
some things, you know, be inspired by what's around you.

Speaker 1 (23:32):
Well, that sounds great that I wish you had a
lot of luck with that. Okay, now we're going to
play a little game called rapid fire, which doesn't mean
you doesn't mean you have to answer anything quickly. Okay, good,

(23:53):
you just call it rapid fire because it's Gilmore girl.
All right, Okay, how do you like your coffee?

Speaker 2 (23:59):
I don't coffee. I only drink tea.

Speaker 1 (24:02):
What's your favorite tea?

Speaker 2 (24:03):
Actually, there is one that is a Twining's black Current
black tea. I also love iced tea, but anything that's
a black tea with fruity flavors. And I'm a kind
of a connoisseur. In China, they have these shops that
are like wine like we have here with wine that
you go in and do tea tastings, but there the
walls are covered with different types of teas. When you

(24:23):
delve into the world of tea, it's kind of like
being the world of wine, Like there's so much to
learn and it's really oh.

Speaker 1 (24:30):
Yeah, oh yeah. Who is your favorite Gilmour Girls couple?
Luke and larel I or Emily and Richard.

Speaker 2 (24:38):
Luke and Laurele I?

Speaker 1 (24:39):
Hello, Hello, correct answer? Would you rather work with Michelle
or Kirk?

Speaker 2 (24:45):
Michel I could speak to him in French them a
little bit exactly.

Speaker 1 (24:50):
What would you order at Luke's diner?

Speaker 2 (24:55):
Bacon is one of my favorite foods, so it would
probably be a simple bacon and eggs.

Speaker 1 (25:03):
Who would you rather hang out with? Paris or Lane? Hmmm,
I think I know the answer to this. I think
I know the answer to this. I think Paris or Lane.

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
