HOLLYWOOD Rocker-turned-filmmaker Rob Zombie enjoyed taking his own spin on his upcoming remake of the horror classic Halloween, and he tells Jeanne Wolf hes a Halloween pro. Zombie says, We live in a neighborhood thats so trick-or-treat heavy, its mind-boggling. Last year we had over 1,000 trick-or-treaters. We would always run out of candy, so last year we had a garbage can full. Finally I went, Shut the light off. Were done. Heres your candy, get off my grass
HOLLYWOOD Handsome hunk Ryan Reynolds is starring in the family drama Fireflies in the Garden in 2008 alongside Julia Roberts, but his on-screen relationship with the Pretty Woman wasnt exactly what he was hoping for. Reynolds tells Jeanne Wolf, I cant believe that Julia Roberts is playing my mom in the movie. Im like, Couldnt we have a hot romance instead? Its so sad. I have to tell my friends that Im getting to act with the old Julia Roberts.
HOLLYWOOD Actress Kelly Preston is John Travoltas wife, but it wasnt long ago when Travolta was Prestons fat housewife while preparing for his role as Edna Turnblad for Hairspray. Preston tells Jeanne Wolf, I miss Edna. I loved watching the evolution of her because at home, John would try out everything with me from her physicality to her voice. Im kind of mad that shes not real. Id like to go out and have a tea party with Edna.
HOLLYWOOD Kelly Preston has it tough playing the wife of a man who turns into a killer after their son is murdered in Death Sentence, but being John Travoltas wife in real life can be tough for Preston too, especially during trips to Wal-Mart. Preston tells Jeanne Wolf, Wal-Mart can get a little crazy. Its like, John Travolta is on Aisle 6! And they all start charging, literally. But we can pretty much go anywhere else [without that happening].
HOLLYWOOD Funnyman Dan Fogler plays a washed-up professional ping-pong phenom in the upcoming comedy Balls of Fury, and he swears to Jeanne Wolf that hes a ballmaster on and off-screen. Fogler jokes, I trained with Olympic bronze medalists in ping-pong. They actually trained Tom Hanks for Forrest Gump. I became, I guess, a master ping-pong player. I got to the point where I surpassed my trainers. And then I hurt a man. I hurt a man in Reno, dislodged his retina by accident. Now I just dont play anymore. Its very sad.
