Clint Cheats In Space Movie

18 August 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Clint Eastwood hung his Space Cowboys (2000) co-stars from ceilings and whizzed them around on stools fitted with caster wheels to simulate weightlessness - because he feared they were too old to try out NASA's famous 'Vomit Comet.' The actor/director could have followed the example set by the cast of Apollo 13 (1995) and simulated space scenes in a G-3 plane, used to create weightless situations without leaving the earth's atmosphere. But after hearing about how ill it made Tom Hanks and his Apollo 13 (1995) co-stars, Eastwood decided he'd try more simple methods for himself and co-stars Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner and Donald Sutherland. Jones recalls, "We even had people holding on to walls as if that were necessary to keep yourself from floating off and then we had ballpoint pens and clipboards floating by suspended on filament lines." Eastwood adds, "We used every trick possible. We could have built the set in the Vomit Comet but it's called that for a reason and our way beat the alternative." »

Donald Keeps His Pants On

2 June 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Screen icon Donald Sutherland is keeping his trousers on in his current stage play - very much against his wishes. The KLUTE star wanted to follow in the steps of Nicole Kidman and Kathleen Turner, who both went naked for their British stage performances. Sutherland's co-star in ENIGMATIC VARIATIONS, John Rubinstein says, "We have both said we would love to take our clothes off but they don't want us to. "We were really disappointed. Donald says he would absolutely love to, but he has shown his butt in countless movies. As for me, they keep putting me in a coat and hat." »
