Best In Show star Parker Posey jumped at the chance star in the blockbuster film SUPERMAN RETURNS, but was stunned when producers told her she couldn't see the script.
Posey was thrilled to play KITTY KOWALSKI and branch out into big budget movies, because she normally gets offered quirky roles in smaller films.
She explains, "I was doing a play at the time and I heard there was interest in me playing this part in Superman.
"So I was like, 'Let them talk it out and see how serious they are and see if it comes around,' and it did!
"I was like, 'I'd love to read the script,' and they were like, 'We can't let you read the script!'
"I'm not going to say no! I accepted the part and they flew someone in from Australia (where the film was being shot) with the script.
"They stopped off in London to deliver the script to Kevin Spacey (LEX LUTHOR) and then they delivered the script to New York to me.
"It was like a Tom Cruise movie or something! They waited outside a coffee shop while I read the script.
"There was a lot of drama around it, but it's an amazing movie!"
X-MEN star Rebecca Romijn and fiance Jerry O'connell frequently dress up as goofy characters and go out in public places as a joke. The couple dress up in outrageous costumes, complete with special hair and make-up. She explains, "We're not nightclub people, our idea of fun is getting dressed up. "I have a costume closet at home. Part of it is like daring each other to go out in public dressed like that." The couple were addicted to US reality series SHOWDOG MOMS AND DADS and became obsessed with one of the couples on the show. She adds, "Showdog Moms and Dads is like (the movie ) Best In Show, but with these very overzealous dog owners. "There was one couple in particular we were inspired by and Jerry and I decided to dress up like them and go to Wal Mart Portrait Studio and have our portrait taken. That's our idea of fun."
