The career boost an Oscar gives you is known to anyone whose had the fortune of standing on stage at the Kodak Theater, but for copy-writer-turned-stripper-turned-author-turned-screenwriter Diablo Cody, little did she know that one of the most famous directors in Hollywood would be an early supporter. Even before she was nominated and eventually won her Oscar for "Juno," Spielberg hired her to write the pilot episode of "The United States Of Tara," a show he executive produced. A little while later he hired her to write an adaptation of William Shakespeare's "The Taming Of The Shrew," another project he was going to executive produce. And that support from Spielberg isn't lost on Cody, and when The Playlist correspondent Drew Taylor caught up with her during press rounds for "Young Adult" she was effusive in what his early support meant to her.

"Everyone gets old. Not everyone grows up." Amen. And welcome to the new tagline for Jason Reitman's "Young Adult," his follow-up feature to "Up In The Air," and his second collaboration with "Juno" screenwriter Diablo Cody. By all accounts, "Young Adult" and its ugly and unapologetic script and characters are going to be one difficult pill to swallow for audiences. The New York Times calls Charlize Theron's self-involved lead character in the film one of the most unlikable protagonists in recent memory,  our recent review out of Austin called the film, "uflinchingly funny and painful" and when Cody recently described the film she said succintly, "assholes don't change."
