Do you have to go?

You know I do.

When are you gonna leave her

like you promised?

I can't keep doing this.

My heart is too

far into this.

Do you still love her?

Pretty lady,

don't hurt yourself.

I can handle it.

Nonsense, this is

New Orleans.

Haven't you heard about

infamous Southern hospitality

Thank you.

Where you headed?

I'm just gonna grab a cab.


What do you got in here,

an anchor?

You can say that.

It's my easel

and my brushes.

Painting keeps me anchored.

Yeah, I feel you.

No, ma'am, no, ma'am.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Hey, Maya, I hate

to say this

but that wasn't

your best work.

What the f*ck are you

talking about, Ethan?

It felt fine to me...

we got the shot.

That's the point,

it felt fine.

I didn't feel the energy.

It was like you was just

going through the motions

and you didn't wanna

be there.

I don't understand you.

You're like

a slave driver.

Last I checked, I was booking double

the jobs you are.

Yeah, that's because

don't take any job like you do.

I take my craft serious.

I take my life serious.

You go through life

just to get by.

I need passion.

I need to... believe

the work that I'm doing

I was called to do.

Stop the dramatics...

It was just a perfume ad.

We didn't even get

our quota.

It's not about the perfume,

it's not about the money.

It's the same

in our relationship.

You're not sharing

your life with me.

We just tolerate each other because

it's comfortable.

Life is too

short to be unfulfilled.

Unfulfilled... last I checked

I was on everything you wanted

whenever you wanted it.

Where you going with this?


it's time for us

to take a break.

I'm gonna take that

job down in New Orleans,

Hugo Boss job, and, uh...

I'll get with

you when I get back.

You know what?

F*ck you, Ethan.


How's that for a break?

I'll just send Tasha

to get my things.

I can't do this anymore.

You don't think I know what

this is really about?


I just got here.

Come on, Ricky.

I told you that

I was just coming

to clear my head

and paint.

No wild parties.

Well, it's funny

you're so concerned now.

You should've thought about that

before you did what you did.

You don't

have the privilege

to question me anymore,

you got that?

I know I'm still your wife...

for now.

Good-bye Ricky.

What we wanna

capture in this shoot

is the essence of manhood.

We just want

to get that epitome of raw.

Unearth the man.

Sort of like saying,

"If you wear this line you will know

what it's like to look like a man."

I'm familiar

with your work.

I love the emphasis you put

on facial expressions

But pardon me...

look like a real man?


Aren't we selling emotions, Jack?

Shouldn't it be,

feel like a real man?

All right.

Huh, I guess

you're right and...

well, nothing beats the feeling

of a real man.

Yeah, feel

like a real man

in order to attract

a real woman...

which I'm interested in.

All right.

Be here at

00 AM sharp

and we'll go over the looks then.


Well, thank you

for your time, Jack.

What is it, Ricky?

No, I'll be home

in a few days.

Just give me a few

days and I'll call you.

You're really sexy...

I like what you're doing.

Why don't you go

ahead and position yourself...

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

Just watch where

you put your hands.

All right, let's start

again, okay.

All right, you know what...

You're doing really great.

I'm loving this

right here but you have...

Hey, hold it... I told you

I was all right.

F*ck this job.

Hey... hey, get

back here right now.

Don't you know who I am?
