Rachael Leigh Cook Says Teenage Girls Who Make Films Are ‘All That

’ LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Rachael Leigh Cook has made an important discovery: Teenage girls who make films are all that.

Cook’s latest project is appearing in a short film that is being made by a group of teenage girls selected for the 2007 Girls In The Directors Chair Program sponsored by StayFree.

The program allows 10 girls from west of the Mississippi and 10 girls east of it to team to make a short film starring Cook or That ’70s Show star Laura Prepon.

So far, Cook is impressed by the young filmmakers. In her words, “I’m impressed by how competant and prepared they all are.”

In fact, she’s worried that she can’t live up to their standards. She admits: “I’m playing a world champion badminton player and badminton is NOT my sport.”

Prepon is making her film next week (Apr. 13) and the two shorts will be put up to a vote at starting May 1.

The winning film will then be shown at colleges and film festivals, and Cook is so confident in her crew that she jokes she’s willing to make a friendly wager with Prepon.
