When did michael cera and charlyne yi start dating
“I was working at a Wal-Mart in Fontana, California, and commuting to Los Angeles to do shows.And I was hanging around with all these older men who hadn’t really found love yet and it depressed me.I got all kinds of amazing anecdotes, and I thought, so many movies about love are fictional, what if we went on the road and made one that is real?I originally intended to make a simple documentary, just full of interviews.”This is where the premise of Paper Heart starts to get a little complicated.

And I don’t drink or go to bars, so I remember thinking, how am I ever going to meet anyone?
You can’t exactly clink a Shirley Temple and meet guys.”So Yi started asking strangers in Los Angeles about love (“a result of a quarter-life crisis and extreme overreaction”) and realized she was getting incredible stories.
As “Charlyne” travels the country and speaks to children and adults, awkwardly falls for Michael, performs puppet shows, sings a twee love song into her computer, and finally has a meltdown in Paris about her inability to open up and fall for someone, the audience is never sure how much is coming from Yi and how much is conjecture. “I would never film myself, or feel comfortable exposing my life,” she says. The screen Charlyne doesn’t talk about how she feels, and I think I talk too much about how I feel, and I think I’m very transparent. I had to play deadpan and cut down on doing this sing-song thing with my words.”Still, a lot of the “real” Charlyne does come through in the film.
It can feel a bit like a bait-and-switch; are we seeing Yi’s true search for love? Almost all of Yi’s friends in the movie are male—Rogen, Martin Starr, Cera—and they call her “Chuck” for short.
