LA Weekly Cover Story Matt Groening: Life Is Swell

Simpsons News — Posted 25 Jul, 2007 by Scott

If you live in the LA area then make sure to pick up this week's free copy of LA Weekly. In his 30 Los Angeles years, Matt Groening has never been busier than he’s been over the past few months: The Simpsons recently broadcast its 400th episode and shows no signs of slowing down. Futurama’s back in production (although not necessarily for prime time). He’s got a new book out, an empire to oversee, his Life in Hell deadline each week, two teenage sons and, of course, The Simpsons Movie.

It takes us two months of scheduling, but eventually Groening and I arrive at his beach house, at sunset. I’ve been here once before, for late-night pizza and beer with six or seven others after a mutual friend’s art opening. This familiarity saves us a good 10 minutes of precious interview time — 10 minutes I’d otherwise have to spend jaw-dropping and eye-popping; it’s that kind of a house. Huge, but not ostentatious; just big and friendly, with high ceilings, good light, good art and beverages. We grab a few beers and head out back, along the stepping stones and past the pool to a pair of immense sliding walls. Groening opens one, I open the other, and we’re left standing on sand about 40 feet from the Pacific, with nothing between us and the water, and nothing between the water and the sky.

Send Marge Simpson to Paris and she really lets her hair down!

Marge and her family take France and the fashion world by storm in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar in a cartoon spread that transforms the less-than-chic suburban family into pictures of urban sophistication.

Supermodel Linda Evangelista — or at least her Simpsonized alter ego with wide eyes and a dark angular haircut — serves as their tour guide, taking the Simpsons into the ateliers of Donatella Versace, Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, among others.

After all, they do need to ramp up their glam factor at Marge, Homer, Bart, Lisa and the gang get ready for their big-screen debut in “The Simpsons Movie,” which opens July 27.
