Guillermo Del Toro Michael Jackson Linda Blair

The Pan's Labyrinth director had to buy a second home next door to his Hollywood mansion when his prop collection overran his family's pad. The place is full of wacky movie memorabilia and friends and fans are so intrigued, Del Toro stages small weekly tours around his home, so he can share his odd collection.

And when cops paid him a late-night visit recently, he felt obliged to let them in to explain why they could see a 'dead woman' in his lounge.

The filmmaker recalls, "The sheriff has shown up many times and the last time they were about to shoot the door open because through the glass they could see a dead woman. It's (a model of) Linda Blair from The Exorcist - I watch TV with her; I have her life-size on the sofa. They said, 'The lady's not reacting', and I said, 'She's not reacting, because she's made of silicon!'

He explains, "As a kid, I ended up having a huge crush on Linda Blair from The Exorcist, and that's just so wrong.

"The first time I saw The Exorcist was in the back of a Volkswagen in a drive-in theatre. Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells theme was so perfectly creepy for The Exorcist itself. A really great score like that one becomes an essential character in the movie."

'The Exorcist' Actress Linda Blair Discusses Her Relationship With Rick James


Linda Blair Rick James

Academy Award nominated actress, Linda Blair, has taken time to talk about her relationship with musician Rick James during the 1980s, in the years since his passing. During her talk, Blair confessed how the relationship was troubled, and ultimately doomed, by James' steadily growing cocaine habit. Blair, the little girl Regan from 1973's 'The Exorcist', recounts that she was only 22 years old when she saw a photograph of Rick James in a magazine and instantly fell for him.

Despite her unwillingness to go into much detail about the relationship, it is known that Blair and James dated for two years. As part of a new documentary 'Rick James: Behind the Music Remastered', Blair discusses the soul legend, stating: "I wouldn't say that we were as romantic as people probably wished that we were, or thought that we were."

The 1983 funk song, 'Cold Blooded', was written by James in his own description of their relationship. Blair was pleased with the idea, yet a little confused by the wording. "Cold Blooded is, 'You're hot!' Cold Blooded is a compliment. That was pretty nice that he wrote that about me. I don't see it, but OK" she said.

The pet care home was in danger of closing down earlier this year (09) after running out of funds, but Blair reveals Cowell stepped in at the last minute to save the day.

She tells the National Enquirer, "I really thought I'd reached the end of my rope. But then, from out of the blue, came a miracle named Simon Cowell."

"And with me, they are much more difficult, and that hurts my feelings.
"For me, I think The Exorcist has been a very interesting cross to bear."
