Three years ago today our friends @themichaelrosenbaum & @saraesanderson set us up on a blind date (well, nothing is really blind anymore with the internet – a post-IG-stalking date?) On our fifteen minute drive to dinner we had already discussed our thoughts on marriage, having children, and psycho exes. As we entered the restaurant, while we were waiting to be seated, we discussed the deaths of loved ones in our lives. Intimate, honest, casual discussion was the natural energy between us. I didn’t know @jenniferlholland’s place in my life by the end of the evening, but I knew she was very different from anyone I had every known. Today, she is a part of my life and family in every way. Love you, Jenn! Happy Anniversary to us! #❤️

“Many people who have followed my career know when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo. As I have discussed publicly many times, as I’ve developed as a person, so has my work and my humor.
It’s not to say I’m better, but I am very, very different than I was a few years ago; today I try to root my work in love and connection and less in anger. My days saying something just because it’s shocking and trying to get a reaction are over.
In the past, I have apologized for humor of mine that hurt people. I truly felt sorry and meant every word of my apologies.
For the record, when I made these shocking jokes, I wasn’t living them out. I know this is a weird statement to make, and seems obvious, but, still, here I am, saying it.
Anyway, that’s the completely honest truth: I used to make a lot of offensive jokes. I don’t anymore. I don’t blame my past self for this, but I like myself more and feel like a more full human being and creator today. Love you to you all.” James Gunn Wiki.
On July 20, 2018, Disney announced that James Gunn had been fired as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
