Schwimmer A Scaredy-Cat?

16 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor David Schwimmer plays wimpy Ross on "Friends" (1994) - and was reportedly revealed to be as neurotic as his character. The quirky star was forced to face up to his fear of horror movies by cast mates Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc - but he chickened out half way through a screening of legendary scream- flick Exorcist, The (1973), and fled the theatre in fright. When Matthew and Matt tried to drag him back inside, he replied, "The hell with that!" »

Blair Blames The Exorcist For Bad Luck

3 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Linda Blair owes her stardom to movie chiller Exorcist, The (1973) - but she also blames it for her years of misfortune. Blair became a major Hollywood icon in 1973, when, aged 14, she put in a chilling performance as the Satanically-possessed Regan. The performance earned her an Oscar nomination - but it also brought her years of bad luck. First of all her role convinced a number of disturbed fans to stake out her Connecticut home. She says, "There were some people who felt they had a weird connection to Exorcist, The (1973) and some scary weirdos felt like they needed to be near me. The studio (Warner Brothers) hired security to watch our house for six months." She also found it tough to win roles in major movies such was her association with the Exorcist - and was forced into making the box- office bomb Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) and a string of film flops. She was also involved in several drug arrests and complains, "The police and courts went after me because I was famous. It took years for me to understand their mentality and forgive it." But after some TV series work and several stage roles, Blair's career is fully back on track. She adds, "I don't know what my life would have been like without Exorcist, The (1973) but I know it wouldn't have been the same." »
