"Has anyone told you you look beautiful today?" him casually, platonically
"You probably told that to everyone on set" me confused, amused
"No, like as an artist I appreciate beauty [etc. etc.]" him
I felt flattered but still keep trying to figure out what he meant even though he already told me.
"I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are."
