"I get asked about it so much," Sossaman tells Spinner of working with the singer-songwriter. "Four out of every five people that talk to me about this movie get in my face, 'What was it like?' And all of a sudden, I started feeling, 'This is a really big [deal].'"
Sossamon believes her experience was unique because she didn't come into the project as a big fan. Still, she has nothing but praise for Waits and his performance. "He was just this wonderful man with a great presence," she says. "[He's] hard worker, great actor, quiet, wonderful."

Every time I hear their music -- any new song -- worlds pop into my head."
