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

HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Isla Fisher stars opposite Saturday Night Live funny man Andy Samberg in the upcoming comedy Hot Rod, and she tells columnist Jeanne Wolf that her on-screen lip lock with Samberg was “fierce.” Fisher explains, “It was actually funny because Andy had a fake handlebar mustache, and I’ve had some experience wrangling the real thing with [my fiance] Sacha [Baron Cohen]. But Andy’s was supposed to come off in my mouth, so I really had to struggle to get my mouth around everything.”

HOLLYWOOD – Oscar-winning actor Billy Bob Thornton shows off his musical talents on his new album, Beautiful Door, but before rock stardom and showbiz, Thornton tells Jeanne Wolf he had another talent. Thornton says, “I was the local high school baseball hero. I actually had a tryout with the [MLB] Kansas City Royals, but I broke my collarbone during training camp and had to drop out. Who knows what would’ve happened if I’d made it.”

HOLLYWOOD – Sexy star Catherine Zeta-Jones plays a passionate New York chef in her film No Reservations, but in real life, her and husband Michael Douglas agree that she’s no master in the kitchen. Zeta-Jones tells Jeanne Wolf, “[When I was cast for the chef role] Michael said, ‘That’ll be the biggest stretch of your career.’ That may sound a little mean, but I tried to cook for him when we were dating, and I nearly burned his kitchen down.”

HOLLYWOOD – Aaron Eckhart plays a professional chef who falls for Catherine Zeta-Jones in No Reservations, but he tells Jeanne Wolf that he wasn’t as smooth with kitchen knives as it appears on the big screen. Eckhart explains, “I had a stunt slicing double, but I did a lot of vegetable chopping myself, and I cut myself more than once. In one scene Abigail Breslin was watching me chop an onion, and I looked over and her face was turning white. I realized I had nearly cut my fingernail off and the onion was turning red. There was blood everywhere.”

HOLLYWOOD – Lindsay Lohan is in some serious trouble these days, but before her latest wild child arrest, the actress found a new hobby while researching her role as a stripper for her latest film, I Know Who Killed Me. Lohan tells Jeanne Wolf that she took exotic dancing classes similar to “erotic yoga” that required a lot of upper-body strength. Lohan adds, “When I saw the scenes, I was surprised that I was dancing the way I was. I’m actually going to keep taking lessons because it makes me feel good.”

HOLLYWOOD – OutKast rapper Big Boi tees off in the upcoming golfing flick, Who’s Your Caddy?, and he can really hold his own on a golf course – as long as the green isn’t too wide. Big Boi tells Jeanne Wolf, “I can drive a ball pretty good, but I just don’t know where it’s going to end up after I hit it. I might be able to take Tiger Woods on a miniature golf course, since that’s where I’ve had some experience.”
