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

HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Cameron Diaz has been playing Princess Fiona in the Shrek films for years but she admits she was never a big fan of fairytales as a kid. Diaz tells columnist Jeanne Wolf that she grew up watching Tom And Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Roadrunner, and “any cartoons where a hammer or rock would come down on somebody’s head.” She adds, “I never saw any of the Disney classics except for Snow White.

HOLLYWOOD – Jane Fonda plays a sassy grandmother to party princess Lindsay Lohan in the film Georgia Rule but in real life, Fonda didn’t take any guff from Lohan on the set either. Fonda tells Jeanne Wolf that she confronted Lohan for being unprofessional and late to the set on a few occasions throughout filming. Says Fonda, “I went into her trailer and got mad at her and told her to get her ass back on the set. I admit, I raised my voice and apparently she said to the makeup guy, ‘Barbarella just yelled at me.”’

HOLLYWOOD – Jane Fonda had no problem getting tough for a violent scene in her film Georgia Rule, in fact, she tells Jeanne Wolf that her fury came naturally. She explains, “In Georgia Rule I attack the father of my granddaughter [Lindsay Lohan] who I think has been abusing her. I was swinging a baseball bat and definitely hitting him below the belt. I don’t know where that came from; I guess my balls. Or maybe I should say, my ovaries.”

HOLLYWOOD – In his latest film, The Ex, Zach Braff is being constantly harassed by Jason Bateman’s character, who is in a wheelchair. But, despite Bateman’s on-screen disability, Braff tells Jeanne Wolf that he didn’t feel bad pushing him down the stairs in one scene. Braff says, “I’m being treated horribly by a guy who happens to be in a wheelchair. It just so happens he’s ruining my entire life. I can’t retaliate because everyone thinks I’m being mean to a disabled person. I think when people see this movie they’ll know someone can be disabled and also be a jerk.”

HOLLYWOOD – Zach Braff has an idea for where you can take your mom this Mother’s Day (May 13), and it involves some box office fightin’ words for action hero Tobey Maguire. Braff tells Jeanne Wolf, “Take your mother to The Ex. It’s a great Mother’s Day present. Your mom doesn’t want to see Spiderman 3.

HOLLYWOOD – Keri Russell plays a pie-loving waitress with big dreams in the film Waitress, but the actress confesses to Jeanne Wolf that becoming a real life pie-maker isn’t a career option for her. Russell says, “ I love them [pies], but I’m not necessarily the best baker. I’m OK with brownies, but pies are an art. We ate them non- stop on the set, and Key Lime pie was my favorite. But right now, during my pregnancy, I’m craving yogurt, which is pretty boring.”
