A Life Less Ordinary (1997) Directed by Danny Boyle
Cameron Diaz as Celine Naville and Ewan McGregor as Robert Lewis (not pictured)

Robert: Enjoying the book?
Celine: No.
Robert: What’s it about?
Celine: It’s a romance. This girl meets this guy. They fall in love. It’s bullshit.
Robert: I’m writing a novel myself. A lot of people say that, but in my case, it’s true.
Celine: I’m not interested… in you or your novel or any other pathetic ambition you have to change your miserable, mundane existence.
