They don’t call her the Notorious RBG for nothing. “She broke three ribs at her office and went home. If I stub my toe bad enough, I’m like, I’ve gotta go to the hospital,” joked Armie Hammer when asked about 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s recent fall. “That tells you how tough she is.”

We recently caught up with the actors and screenwriter Daniel Stiepleman (Ginsburg’s nephew) at a celebratory feast after they received the SF Honors Award for Achievement in Filmmaking.
