Alan Cumming To Bare Soul In Book And Documentary

18 December 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Alan Cumming has had such a chequered love life he wants to recapture lost relationships through a book and documentary about himself. The Scottish star - who has split his career between high profile films like Spy Kids and cutting edge theatre work - divorced wife Hilary Lyon to date fellow actress Saffron Burrows, before declaring he was in a gay relationship. And now Cumming has started his auto-biographical work to try and recapture his hurtful past. He says, "The trouble is, the person I shared a lot of things with, we don't talk anymore, so I feel there's a big chunk of my life missing and I so miss that chunk. I feel I don't have any hold on it. I've got quite a long way to go with my book, and the really interesting thing is that now, when I go out, at the end of the night I want to recap it, write it down so I don't forget. So it doesn't go missing again." »

Carla Gugino's Kisses With Banderas

22 March 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Carla Gugino had to deal with an array of action sequences in new movie Spy Kids, but one of her biggest challenges was kissing her co-star Antonio Banderas. Carla, who plays Antonio's wife in the flick, was forced to repeatedly kiss her screen husband in a manner that was deemed appropriate for the film's young target audience - a fact which didn't bother the actress in the slightest. She says, "We had to be careful because it's a family movie. We had a variety of kisses and we were eventually told to tone it down. We had a lot of takes in that scene." »

Spy Kids: Real Action Heroes

20 March 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The child stars of new film Spy Kids plunged straight into character during the making of the movie - by insisting to do all their own stunts. Alexa Vega, 12, and eight-year-old Daryl Sabara play siblings in the gadget-filled action flick, and rather than sit back and allow their stunt doubles to carry out all the work, the pair insisted on doing as many on-screen stunts as possible. Alexa says, "We did most of our own stunts, which was really cool, but every time they said, 'Ok, now your stunt double's gonna do it, ' we'd say, 'Please! Let us do it, please'. We loved doing the stunts and it wasn't hard at all - it was a lot fun." And fearless Alexa, whose scenes included flying and battling with aliens, found no action sequence too challenging. She explains, "If they said, "Can you do this?' we were like, 'Can we do this? Come on!' And we went right ahead and did it." »

Panic Last-minute Work On Banderas Movie

15 March 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The director of Antonio Banderas' new movie Spy Kids has been working around the clock - to ensure the flick is ready in time for its premiere this weekend. According to director Robert Rodriguez, the Dimension film, which opens 30 March, "looks like a $100 million movie" - but still needs a lot of work to meet its deadline. Rodriguez assures, "It didn't cost an arm and a leg. It was $36 million." The film-maker says a lot of money was saved by taking on multiple jobs himself. He explains, "Besides the usual write-produce-edit, I'm the sound mixer and the visual supervisor. I thought, 'With all the advancements in technology, I have to learn to direct computer graphics.' I thought it sounded like a lot of fun. It's a lot of detail work. I've never worked harder." Spy Kids will get its unveiling at Disney's California Adventure park, the event benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. »
