HOLLYWOOD Action star Jackie Chan has made it big on the silver screen through his Rush Hour films, but he wasnt exactly sure about signing on at first. Chan tells Jeanne Wolf, They called me for the first Rush Hour and I said, No, I dont like to do this kind of movie. I say, Policeman from Hong Kong with a black American cop whats that about? But I do the film anyway and when I see it, I hate it. The action is bad. The dialogue, I dont understand. The they call me and say, Wow, big success; $32 million the first week. I go, Oh, now I like it!
HOLLYWOOD Actress Claire Danes plays a celestial star that falls from the sky in Stardust, but she tells Jeanne Wolf that Robert DeNiro was the real star on the set. Danes explains, I was intimidated, but I thought it was pretty great when he told us to call him Bob. I got to waltz with him on a pirate ship. Its clear that he likes acting because he really comes alive when hes doing it. The rest of the time hes very internal and quiet. Theres a kind of discrepancy between who he is as a guy and who he is as an actor.
HOLLYWOOD Rosario Dawson has a leading role in the upcoming dramatic film, Descent, but she wasnt so lucky when trying to nab a part in Rob Zombies film, The Devils Rejects. Dawson tells Jeanne Wolf, I called to ask him for a part, but he said no. I did get to do a voice in his animated feature, The Haunted House Of El Superbeasto, though. I play a stripper who can make her boobs change size by blowing on her thumb. But, hey, its just a cartoon.
HOLLYWOOD Actor Jason Behr played a teen alien in the TV series Roswell, but in his new film Skinwalkers, he plays a werewolf thats out for blood. To get into hairy scary character, Behr tells Jeanne Wolf he turned to one of the scariest movies he watched as a child, American Werewolf In London. Behr explains, It scared the sþþt out of me when I was a kid. I got up and crawled across a Thanksgiving dinner table, through mashed potatoes, through the turkey, through the gravy, over the rivers of wine that I created; just to get my mom because someone had said the word, werewolf.
HOLLYWOOD Actor Adam Goldberg exposes his bod in the upcoming film 2 Days In Paris, and he wasnt shy about bearing it all. He tells Jeanne Wolf, There was a lot of talk about the body. I had no idea, I should drop trow more often. I did it in The Salton Sea and nobody cared, so go figure. Its the same body!
