At the world premiere of War Horse, Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s 1982 children’s book about the relationship between a boy and his horse separated during World War I, Vulture asked Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick which of Spielberg’s other movies is his favorite. “Jurassic Park,” he answered without missing a beat. “I remember the cover for the VHS: ‘An adventure 65 million years in the making.’” His favorite scene, he adds, is “when the guy gets eaten on the toilet. But my greatest memory is the whole thing.” When we asked if he gets emotionally attached to animals, à la Jeremy Irvine’s character in the film, he had this to say: “As humans, we’re such emotional beings … unless you are a real coldhearted individual, stone-cold killer, then you’re probably not.” For more excellent observations from the carpet, click through our slideshow.
