Are charlyne yi and michael cera actually dating

To call actress, musician and comedian Charlyne Yi awkward would be an understatement. But there’s no doubt Yi is a girl shrouded in mystery.You may vaguely recognize Yi from her stoner-girl performance in Knocked Up—she’s the type of girl that often gets overlooked, which makes her latest flick refreshing to watch. The quirky romantic pseudo-documentary—a largely unexplored genre—leaves the audience with just as many questions to Yi herself. Her Myspace page claims she’s 33, which highlights Yi’s complete and utter cluelessness or her brilliant publicist—the inaccurate reporting of Cera and Yi’s age difference had Internet discussion boards buzzing.In Paper Heart Yi’s fictionalized version of herself travels to likely and no-so-likely places in the U. It’s also hard to tell whether or not her shtick is legit. Yi’s inability to find love is puzzling to her and she wants answers.

The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers.

It represents the percentage of professional critic reviews that are positive for a given film or television show.

In Paper Heart Yi meets up with a director, Nicholas Jasenovec, the films actual director, who’s played by the much more Hollywood-friendly actor Jake M. Along the way, Yi meets Michael Cera—the pretend version of himself—at a party where he creepily knows her name and scopes her out.

At first Yi is completely turned off by Cera’s apparent interest in her but she slowly becomes smitten with Cera’s quirky clumsiness—throughout the film it’s hard to decipher who’s more anxious.

Soon she meets Cera and the two begin an awkward romance.

Along the way she interviews people who tell whimsical tales of different kinds of love (each of which are animated with paper cutouts and marionette work).Melding truth and fantasy, Paper Heart uses equal parts comedy and realism to resolve the ultimate question of whether love is fact or fiction. And here’s where things get interesting — Yi is playing Yi and Cera is playing Cera, but Jasenovec is played by Jake M. It appears that the on the street interviews are real, but most of the film is certainly scripted.She attended college for a short time, then dropped out and moved to Los Angeles in 2006, where she couch-surfed and lived out of her car while performing stand-up gigs.She quickly gathered a following of comedians and noncomedians, and was one of the original performers at Matt Besser’s Upright Citizens Brigade in Hollywood. She was on screen for only about two minutes, but she was mesmerizing and memorable. The documentary parts are actual documentary; not scripted.
