Jeanne Wolf’s Hollywood: Celebrity Advance Items From Movies.Com

HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Mark Wahlberg is not a fan of President George W. Bush’s policies, but he can’t help but like the guy. Wahlberg tells columnist Jeanne that he met “Dubya” two weeks after 9/11 and admits the Chief Executive threw him off-guard upon meeting. Says Wahlberg: “As soon as I came in, he shakes my hand and goes, ‘I bet you were gonna come in here and tell me, ‘Dammit, you need to do this and you need to do that, but then you look at me in my nice blue suit and you end up thinking, ‘Well, God, you’re really good looking in person, Mr. President.”’ Wahlberg admits he couldn’t help but laugh and say, “You know what? You’re kind of right.” Wahlberg still thinks the president is “extremely funny” but wishes he “had done a better job.”

HOLLYWOOD – Being a millionaire movie star isn’t easy. Just ask Mark Wahlberg, who stars in the upcoming drama, Shooter. Wahlberg tells Jeanne Wolf that one scene required him to jump into a river and when he told director Antoine Fuqua that the water looked polluted, Fuqua snorted, “That’s why you get the big bucks.”

HOLLYWOOD – Don’t hate Sandra Bullock when she claims she’s not sexy or gorgeous. Bullock tells Jeanne Wolf that she often downplays her beauty because she knows what she looks like in the morning. She says if she looks good on camera, it’s because she “has learned to sit very still when the make-up artist starts working on me.”

HOLLYWOOD – Comedian Bernie Mac plays a dramatic role in Pride, which is about a man who turns some African- American teens into a championship swim team. Mac doesn’t wear a swimsuit in the movie but it’s not because he can’t swim. He tells Jeanne Wolf that he doesn’t wear a bathing suit because he didn’t want to upstage the film’s star, Terrence Howard. Says Mac: “When I was growing up, they used to call me ‘Lumberjack.’ I could have been a porn star. So I guess that’s why they couldn’t show what I had in a Speedo.”

HOLLYWOOD – Kal Penn is one of the best known Indian- American actors around, thanks to his work in Harold And Kumar Go To The White Castle. However, he tells Jeanne Wolf that the only time he thinks about his heritage is when other people mention it. In his words, “I’m always weirded out when people go, ‘Do you feel more Indian or American?’ Like, are they mutually exclusive? They’re not to me.”

HOLLYWOOD – Like many actors on a hit TV show, Office star Rainn Wilson hopes to transfer that success to the big screen. However, his reasons for doing so are different. He tells Jeanne Wolf: “Maybe if I become a movie star, I’ll get an action figure. All I have from The Office is a Dwight bobblehead doll. They sent me one which bobbles around in my house. I’ve heard they’ve sold over 80,000 of them.”
