Pfeiffer's Attempts To Get Fired

Sexy actress MICHELLE PFEIFFER was called back so many times to re-record parts of SINBAD: LEGEND OF THE SEVEN SEAS, she told film bosses to fire her.

The TEQUILA SUNRISE star voices the character ERIS in the new cartoon, which also features CATHERINE ZETA-JONES and BRAD PITT, but she was certain she'd never make it to the end of recording.

She says, "I actually tried to get fired at one point. I think I was just sort of preempting getting fired at one point.

"Unbeknownst to me, they hadn't quite worked out my character when they hired me, so I went in and I recorded it and then a year later I went back and I redid the whole thing - and then a year later I went back and redid the whole thing.

"After the third time I thought, 'I'm just really bad and they're too nice to fire me.' So I called JEFFREY (KATZENBERG) and I said, 'If you've cast the wrong actress, you really can fire me, it's okay. I won't hold it against you.'

"Finally - the fourth time - I realised they really didn't know what they were talking about; they really weren't being nice. I was a pawn!"
