“I was at a wedding in the summer of 2021 on Martha’s Vineyard, and the bride’s father made a moving speech,” the Whole Nine Yards actress shared. “Suddenly I realized that I would never get that moment, my dad speaking about me in adulthood at my wedding. It was devastating. I left the dinner table, stepped outside, and wept in the bushes.”
As Tallulah explained, she’s realized that this time serves as “the beginning of grief,” but added that she’s finding comfort in living in the moment.
“Every time I go to my dad’s house, I take tons of photos—of whatever I see, the state of things,” she explained. “I’m like an archaeologist, searching for treasure in stuff that I never used to pay much attention to. I have every voicemail from him saved on a hard drive. I find that I’m trying to document, to build a record for the day when he isn’t there to remind me of him and of us.”
