In the spirit of industry tradition, Canadian actress Sarah Gadon gives her co-stars a parting gift after she finishes shooting a film. In this clip, Sarah tells George what she gave Cosmopolis co-star Robert Pattinson, and explains why it she thought it was fitting.

Sarah is in the red chair tonight, along with Cosmopolis director, David Cronenberg, and her co-stars, Robert Pattinson and Paul Giamatti.

GS: Your custom is to - at the end of a movie people will hand gifts out to other people on the film - did you hand out movies? Because you like to hand DVDs out.
SG: Ya - Generally when I'm working on a film I like to give the actor - or whoever I'm working with - some sort of a film. Because I love film, and I watch a lot of film, and I collect a lot of film, and so ya - I gave Rob a film.
GS: What did you give him?
SG: I gave him a movie called Le Bonheur, by Agnès Varda
GS: Had he seen it?
SG: Ya! of course!
GS: No - had he seen it?
SG: Oh! I don't know actually - I never asked, and he never mentioned anything, and then I thought oh no! Maybe I shouldn't ask - because the film is incredible - it's all about infidelity and about the randomness. and I thought it would be appropriate because he spends the whole film cheating on his wife.
