"We just wanted to be as honest as possible [in Turning Red] about what a teenage girl goes through. She gets her period and gets horribly embarrassed. She goes down lusty drawing spirals under her bed. She sweatily ogles and objectifies boys with her friends. And the fact we were able to just sit around, this group of women, trading stories about all of these things in this completely matter-of-fact way really helped. "
