13. I love TV and watch a lot of it.
14. I contemplated being a country singer when I was about 11 years old.

19. Disneyland makes me extremely happy.
20. I have two cats, named Lucy and Ethel. They are sisters, and I adore them.

21. I love the sound of rain, and I love lying in the sun.
22. It's best not to speak to me pre-morning coffee.
23. I want to live inside an Anthropologie store.

The One I Love is the story of Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Moss), who are struggling with their marriage. Deciding to embark on a journey to figure things out, they seek a therapist (Ted Danson), who suggests they take a special retreat. Telling the couple the retreat has helped countless other couples, the couple heed his advice and off they go.

“When they get there, weird sh– happens,” said first time director Charlie McDowell to Entertainment Weekly, unwilling to share more for fear of divulging spoilers.

“It’s an in-depth relationship study,” said Duplass. “When you first start dating someone, or are trying to date someone, you present yourself as this person who is probably a lot cooler, smarter, more sensitive, more well read than you really are. And then you get to know them and you feel more comfortable, then you start to reveal that you are petty and a little jealous and a little snarky. That is a fascinating thing to us. How do you maintain that relationship and that love when the people you’re with start to change? We try to use a very pointed, odd plot device to examine that.”
