Naked Actress Turns Rock Onto New Movie
Comic CHRIS ROCK bought the US rights to classic French film LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON after falling in love with the naked woman on the DVD cover.
Rock has adapted the 1970s romp into his new comedy I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE and he admits the film would never have come about if it wasn't for the sight of French actress ZOUZOU on the cover of the DVD.
He explains, "It was pure accident that I stumbled on the movie. I was in Tower Video and I was in the mood for foreign movies. I probably looked at 10 or 15 movies and this one had a naked girl on the cover.
"I read the description and I watched the movie and I loved it. I loved what it stood for.
"I actually want to adapt more foreign films because nobody knows the stories."
In his new movie, Rock plays a sex-starved husband who finds himself fighting with temptation everywhere he goes.
