Along similar stripper-bombshell lines, you were just in Peter Bogdanovich's latest film “Squirrel To The Nuts.”
Yes, that just ended. I came home yesterday from it, so it is real fresh. My job on this movie was to make Peter laugh by saying the most inappropriate things I possibly could, and it worked. He's really hilarious.
Who do you play in the film?
I play Delta Simmons, who's the actress married to Owen Wilson's character — she kind of loses it when she finds out he has a bit of a hooker problem. It was so fun, like “What's Up Doc” — old-school farce, with the same kind of timing. It's a different type of comedy than I've been used to; I did a big farce on Broadway a while ago, “Boeing Boeing,” and this felt similar to that engine-wise. The timing is so similar to that, so much more technical, with hotel doors slamming at the right moment. But making it was so heavenly, and Peter was on it — short days, he always knew what he wanted, and the cast — I mean, he got Michael Shannon to do three lines, Tatum O'Neal's in it…the cast of characters is insane.
