She's one perfect Storm.
Chris Columbus has done monster hits like Home Alone and a few Harry Potter films. Now he’s cast you in I Love You, Beth Cooper.
Yes, I’m stoked. I Love You, Beth Cooper was a book by Larry Doyle, a writer-producer on The Simpsons. The gist is the nerdy valedictorian professes his love during his speech for the most beautiful girl in school (Hayden Panettiere). I play Treece, her slightly overweight idiot best friend, who’s a total
slut. In the book she’s described as a cartoon cow.
We heard there originally was a threesome scene in a Harry Potter film that Chris Columbus had to cut. Did he finally get to shoot his dream scene with you?
Yes, I do get into a threesome in the film. Me and Hayden’s other best friend force this guy to do it. They didn’t show much of it, and thank God! I would have looked like a big marshmallow naked in bed!
Thoughts on threesomes in general?
To each their own. It is an odd cultural thing. I mean, guys don’t usually hook up with their guy friends just for fun. But I think girls are pretty, they smell nice, they’re soft—I can get why girls do it. I think if you’re in a relationship, though, it can cause problems. But if you’re not in an exclusive relationship, hell, why not? I’m a fan of having fun safely.
