Bullock never wanted aniston dating proposal
As her number is exactly twenty, she decides to forswear sex and revisit her old lovers to see if any of them is Mr.
Right—even as she’s increasingly drawn to Colin, the Lothario across the hall.
In the 2005 film “Just Friends,” she played a self-indulgent pop star named Samantha James, a character loosely based on Britney Spears.
A leading agent told me, “What Anna has going for her, to be crass, is that guys want to nail her.” During the filming, Faris recalled, “some studio exec basically said, ‘Get some tits in the movie.’ So we did a reshoot where I go in to save Colin from this naked woman, the morning after”—Ally pretends to be Colin’s enraged girlfriend—“and it was so obvious it was a tit shot that when she got up in my face I said ‘Tits!
’ just to make it clear what we were doing.”In the screening room, Faris and Mylod watched the film’s last scene, where Ally and her new boyfriend listen to a voice mail from the one lover she hadn’t tracked down, who reports that they never actually slept together—putting her back under the magic number.
Wearing sunglasses and absurd white earmuffs, Faris exclaims, “Oh, my God—that is so for a scene,” Seth Rogen, the star of the dark comedy “Observe and Report,” from 2009, in which Faris played a vapid, slutty makeup saleswoman, says.
“I couldn’t even look at her when she was preparing her disgusted ‘I just ate something bad’ face, or her ‘I’m going to throw up all over you’ face, because I’d start laughing so hard I couldn’t act.” Jody Hill, the film’s writer-director, told me, “All the other women are more ‘Dick Van Dyke Show,’ more light and sweet, like Sandra Bullock.
Faris’s trademark is the power-through: after her character has done something incredibly stupid or embarrassing, she doubles down, gamely swinging a fist to rally a doomed effort. ” Ally plays darts with a British lover who believes she’s British, too, and, as her accent slips, drink by drink, from plummy Oxbridge to wobbly Cockney—“Bloody ’ell, I’m rubbish at this!
