They each offer diverse views on modern romance, as well as various answers to the age-old question: does true love really exist?
Shortly after filming begins, Charlyne meets a boy after her own heart: Michael Cera.
Other talking heads figure in this pseudo documentary cum mockumentary (actor/writer/director, Seth Rogan,who is a friend of Yi's,briefly turns up to put in his two cents worth). ), Charlyne & Michael start to get a bit tired of being in the camera lens when they just want a little down time to be alone together.
Along the way,we find out a little more about Charlyne Yi (besides being an actress,she's also a part time musician who actually writes & performs some of the songs in this film). Charlyne Yi seems a bit too tentative in her portrayal of herself at times.
There were speculations that the pair were together for three years, but Charlyne put the rumors to rest by stating they never dated, but she was amused by the news, “I also heard that we broke up [laughs].
Someone sent me an article that said I was really sad.
Yi is said to be heartbroken, especially since the pair are about to embark on a promotional tour for their upcoming mockumentary Paper Heart. Don't forget those who loved you before you became famous Cera!
Paper Heart is a 2009 American romantic comedy film starring Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera as fictionalized versions of themselves based on their rumored relationship, though Yi has said they never dated.
As she and her good friend (and director) Nick search for answers and advice about love, Charlyne talks with friends, strangers, scientists, bikers, romance novelists, and children.
Charlyne Yi embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn't fully understand: Love. Weaving together reality and fantasy, Paper Heart combines elements of documentary and traditional storytelling to get at modern romance.
Charlyne Yi claims she doesn't believe in love (although she seems to want to believe in it).
In the middle of all this,actor Michael Cera (Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist, Juno, Superbad)somehow strikes up a friendship with Yi,which somehow manages to turn into a relationship (of sorts).
Of course,turns out to shift the focus in the film a bit.
