Taika Waititi is one of the rare directors who seems as comfortable in front of the camera as he is behind it. Turns out, he's quite comfortable around animals, too.
The director stopped by BuzzFeed to complete the puppy interview while promoting his new film, Next Goal Wins.
Taika's puppy interview was adorable. Just look at Taika cuddling this puppy!
Taika wasn't the only one in for a treat when the puppies came storming in because he revealed so much in the interview about his life and career.
This includes coming down with a serious pain condition while filming Next Goal Wins in Hawaii.
He also explained the simple reason he prefers rugby to soccer.
As for the director's connections with other celebs (of which he has many), Taika opened up about the possibility of working with Liam Hemsworth. Liam is the only Hemsworth brother he's yet to direct in a film.
Taika also took a moment to reflect on his wedding to pop star Rita Ora last year.
The couple married on August 4, 2022, in Los Angeles.
Still, the dogs couldn't even convince Taika to open up about everything in his life. He played coy when asked about the wildest rumor he's heard about himself.
But nothing really compared to the director early in the interview suggesting a name for our puppy interview: Puppy Playhouse. We'll take it into consideration, Taika.
