The Simpsons writers have been focusing a lot on Lisa this year, and she’s been one lucky girl. Not only has she shared a Heavenly Creatures-esque friendship with a pal voiced by Emily Blunt, but on this week’s episode, she was able to get up close with tween pop singer
Watch a clip of their meeting:
After working on the show, Yeardley Smith (who voices Lisa) interviews Ellen about her experience, playing someone who is “mean to Lisa Simpson.”
OK, it’s a little gushy about The Simpsons, as Page admits she’s a “massive fan” of the show, but I appreciated when she actually talked about herself and how she loves to “roller derby” ever since filming Whip It!.
I always enjoy watching interviews like this, between people who just finished working together and are trying to relate on a normal level (as normal as possible while on camera, anyway). And after watching her be so gracious and composed yet funny and cool, I have to admit my Ellen Page crush is officially in full effect.
