Mariel Hemingway

Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  


Show Summary

As the show opens, Adam talks about an inappropriate shirt that got his maid’s husband sent home from work. Mariel then talks about her boyfriend’s passion for raw vegan food, and how she eats healthy as well. She and Adam also talk about the multiple suicides in the Hemingway family, and how a regimented lifestyle can prevent you from a darker fate. Mariel also talks about the importance of maintaining ritualistic traditions like cooking for your family.

Adam and Mariel then flash back to how her career got started. She talks about her roots in Idaho and how Woody Allen saw her in a film, ultimately writing ‘Manhattan’ for her. Adam also asks if there is any ‘Hemingway money,’ and Mariel talks about her efforts to produce a film based on her grandfather’s novel. Later she talks about her new independent movie, ‘Archie’s Final Project.’

In the last part of the show, the guys talk about Mariel’s journey to be a creative and driven person without being self-destructive. The show then wraps up with a conversation about Cupcake Wars, and the joys of Twitter.

  1. Michael

    Good one Aceman.

  2. Ambrose

    Weird. It sounds like she pronounced Margaux “Marlo”, and then said she died “ten…almost eleven years ago,” when it’s been over fifteen.

      What are you trying to say? That it wasn’t the real Mariel Hemingway.

  3. snork

    Mariel ..Still beautiful inside and out

  4. Courtney

    Great show, very interesting and important subject you guys delved into. Plus, my god, Hemingway still be bangin’!

    Do yourself a favor and don’t wear that hipster hat in public!

    • Jeff714

      Adam needs Ray to kick him in the b*lls if he ever wears that stupid beret again.

      • Wow

        That’s not a beret…And when you’re Adam’s age you can genuinely wear one of those. He looks good in it too. But I guess to rednecks, anything that’s not a NFL cap and doesn’t have a massive logo in primary colors that extends all the way over the bill probably looks hipster-ish.

        • Malex

          He does look better in a baseball cap, the beret is for special forces or guys who play guitar in coffee shops. Besides how old are you implying he is exactly?

  6. MIchaelDobson

    Good god, this chick is annoying. Hard to get through the first 10 minutes so far…

  7. Adam

    End of show, Sacramento was announced as Thursday and Fresno as Friday. Just a mistake, or have those 2 venues swapped dates??

    • Jeff

      Yeah, I hope that was a mis-read, because I got tickets to Sac show on FRIDAY, Dec 9th. I’ll be PISSED if I show up and they say it was last night!!!

    We really need to hear about more raw foods bullshit? If you eat raw food, you’re fucking stupid. You know how I know we’re supposed to cook food before we eat it? Because it smells good. Your body is telling you that food should be cooked.

  10. Darican

    Really good interview…. It was interesting and compelling…. Didn’t think it would be when I downloaded it….

  11. Wes

    I like when these vegetarian/healthy eating people make claims like “bacteria being bad for people is actually a misnomer”. Salmonella, E. coli, botulism, etc. Yeah, these are all great things to eat.

    • reb

      “I like when these vegetarian/healthy eating people make claims like “bacteria being bad for people is actually a misnomer”. Salmonella, E. coli, botulism, etc. Yeah, these are all great things to eat.”

      pretty sure she was referring to bateria that aren’t fatal when ingested, and the tendency of demb people to conflate botulism, et al, with innocuous bacteria. apart from that, excellent point.

  12. DoMeNiQuE

    Great guest, last time I saw her was in a film with Peter O’Toole, Creator, she was absolutely delightful and brought it to the show, stimulating and vivacious!!

  13. william

    download cut off at 8 minutes, play from main page cut off right after she sais “if you were a model and became an actress that wasn’t coo…”


    no Star 80 mention?

    Hey Adam, what’s up with your gay assistant Matt on the Adam Carolla Project?? In particular the scene with you in a bathrobe (and not much else) sipping on a cup of coffee and him….weird vibes Ace-man….

      Good Pod, enjoyed this one on one…

  17. GregM

    I made it two minutes into the podcast and decided to cut my losses.

  18. E-Man

    Raw chicken? What on earth was she blathering about?

  19. Aaron

    As Adam says that Mariel is a bit of alright. I think I just developed a new celebrity crush.

  20. SchultzArt

    Great One-on-One Adam. You just can’t get that kind of interview
    anywhere else. Had no idea Mariel was so cool. My favorite guests
    of yours are the ones that are simpatico with your twisted sense of humor.

  21. Jim

    Great Show GET IT ON

    I notice the deluxe size hand sanitizer container outside Dawson’s window. Good to see everyone is staying as germ free as possible.

    Thanks for the one-on-one episode. I’ve ditched the morning zoo ep’s, but the one-on-one’s I can still stomach.

    TACO BELL MATERIAL12-05-2011

    There should be a beat off Hall of Fame built somewhere in Ohio.
    Hemingway would be a first ballot inductee.

  26. Anal Ripper
    Anal Ripper12-05-2011

    Great start to the podcast, Aceman, with the story about the masturbation shirt & stuff. Mariel was crackin’ the hell UP! (….and so was I.)

  27. Angel

    Great show, Adam! Sometimes I’m not so sure if I’m going to like a show when I see who is the guest of the day, but you never disappoint! Thank you for the awesome entertainment every day.

  28. Brian

    what happened to the Yankees hat? bring it back Adam!

  29. Tim

    Great show. Meriel seems so fun and receptive. She really hears Adam’s jokes and plays back. What a fascinating woman. Thank you for this amazing FREE show. I use your amazon link,always.

  30. Ben

    Great Show and great guest. Who knew that I would be liking Mariel so much, especially in a 1 on 1? She was delightful, funny and has a great attitude. Clearly one of the guests you click with on multiple levels as the conversations were in-depth and humorous. I will be keeping an eye out for her.
    Nice job.

  31. Kristina W.

    Thanks for having Mariel on the show. It meant Adam got to talk about mental health and I always enjoy his thoughts on that topic.

  32. Jenn

    Great ep!!

  33. Dave

    Enjoyed this one. Nice to hear Aceman giving some good advice to Mariel about her sister. Little compassion for the Aceman!

  34. matt

    Great show. Wasn’t sure I was going to listen, but Mariel was instantly interesting and enthusiastic. I remember watching LIPSTICK as a kid on Z Channel, my first R movie, and being just absolutely riveted by this girl with the lipstick smear…

    Two things you should’ve discussed – how epic she was in STAR 80 (spank) and the Ernest Hemingway character in Woody Allen’s MIDNIGHT IN PARIS.

    Great pod…

  35. Carson

    What a firecracker! Call me bigoted, but you rarely see a woman of her level of beauty and prestige with an interesting personality. Sure, I didn’t agree with everything Mariel said, but she was a compelling interview regardless. Can you guys bring her back some time?

    p.s. Amiee Mann too. She’s rad.

  36. Rita

    Her cackle made me end the podcast. Love the show- couldn’t deal with her preaching about raw food and her ridiculous cackle.

    • Brendon

      Amen! I thought i was listening to a nervous wreck. Ahh hahahahaha!!!!!&@! I couldn’t get past 10 min.
