HOLLYWOOD Sexy actor Christian Bale has been perfecting his superhero skills as Batman on the silver screen since 2005, but while filming his latest Batman flick, The Dark Knight, Bale had some problems with his crimefighting threads especially his cape. He tells Jeanne Wolf, Ive tripped on that damn thing [cape] or I throw a punch and it ends up covering my whole head. Its really not practical. If youre going to get the bad guys, forget the cape.
HOLLYWOOD Actor Clive Owen plays a family man caught in the middle of an intense shoot-out in the upcoming film Shoot Em Up, but surprisingly, he modeled his action character after a pretty peaceful guy. Owen tells Jeanne Wolf, There were moments [in the film] where I felt a little like Bugs Bunny. My character just loves carrots and he ends up eating them at some unlikely moments. So Im making carrots cool.
HOLLYWOOD Paul Giamatti gets a shot at being the bad guy in Shoot Em Up, and confesses to Jeanne Wolf that playing a big screen villain has always been his dream. Giamatti says, When I was a kid growing up, I was never interested in the good guys. I always wanted to play someone evil, but people havent seen me that way. At Yale I used to always get cast as the old guy. If there was somebody in a wheelchair, that would be me.
HOLLYWOOD Saturday Night Live funnyman Will Forte plays half of an awkward, socially inept duo in the upcoming comedy, The Brothers Solomon, and he tells Jeanne Wolf he had a hard time filming romantic moments with both ladies and gentlemen in the flick. Says Forte: I had a scene with this gentleman who was probably in his late 40s. This was a very awkward thing, because when you meet this guy beforehand youre like, I will be kissing you tonight. And it ends up I probably kissed him 50 times because you have to keep doing these different takes.
HOLLYWOOD Hilarious actor Will Arnett plays a romantically-challenged guy trying to score with the ladies in The Brothers Solomon, and his character definitely had a way with words with his sweet co-star, The Office actress Jenna Fischer. Arnett tells Jeanne Wolf, I had to say awful stuff to her, but I was lucky that I was in the middle of filming Blades of Glory, so I knew her. I had to say lines like, Youve got a beautiful face. It makes up for your body. And Are you ovulating? So I apologized in advance, but if it wouldve been a stranger it wouldve been super awkward. Jenna gets it. Shes totally game so after asking her if shed have my baby, I just told her that it was nice being terrible to her all day.
