Actor Lucas Hedges / Samin Nosrat Part 2

Hedges is best known for his roles in 'Manchester by the Sea' and 'Lady Bird,' and now stars in the movie 'Ben is Back' as a teenager in rehab for opioid addiction. He's also nominated for a Golden Globe for 'Boy Erased,' about a teenager subjected to gay conversion therapy by his conservative Baptist parents. Hedges talks about growing up obsessed with actors, his ADHD, and crying onscreen versus real life.

Samin Nosrat, host of the Netflix docuseries 'Salt Fat Acid Heat,' says those are the four key elements to master cooking. She spoke with 'Fresh Air' producer Sam Briger about why she wanted to showcase home cooks rather than famous chefs on her show. (Part one of this interview is in the Monday Dec. 3 episode.)
