Damon And Cruz Never Had The Time To Fall In Love

14 December 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Matt Damon denies he and co-star Penelope Cruz were ever romantically linked - though he'd have been happy to give it a go if they had the time. Tabloid newspapers reported the All the Pretty Horses (2000) co-stars had become involved after filming the movie, and their obvious joy at seeing one another at the movie's premiere in New York this week set tongues wagging again. But Damon set the record straight. He says, "She's a very dear friend, but unfortunately we haven't had any time to be together. She went off to make Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001) and since November I've been in Europe filming Bourne Identity, The (2001). It was wonderful seeing her at the premiere, even just for a bit. But in terms of a relationship it would be the worst in the world, getting together ten minutes a year." »

Nicolas Cage Almost Cried Over Corelli

27 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Nicolas Cage almost cried when he first read the screenplay to his new movie Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001). The heart-throb admits that the love story between a Greek beauty and an Italian soldier was almost too much for him to take in. He explains, "When I first read the script I was very emotional. I don't know why. I think I was moved by the story's romantic aspects. It seemed to me to be unlike anything I'd done before. I've normally avoided period pictures. I've felt inherently I was a contemporary person." »

Bale's Plane Treat

26 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Christian Bale was so thrilled when he received his own private jet while making Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001), he flew his wife Sibi Blazic all over the world and took snapshots. Bale has always dreamed of having his own jet and admitted he was disappointed when he learned Corelli co-stars Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz both had planes - and he didn't. He says, "I was like, `Oh, I'm on Olympic Airlines?' So they sent me my own private jet. I was over the moon about it and my wife and I had all these shots taken with the plane." »

Nic Cage Buys Private Island

2 August 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Nicolas Cage is so desperate for privacy that he has bought his own Bahamian island. The star got a taste for island life whilst filming the movie version of Louis de Bernieres' novel Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001) on the Greek island of Cephalonia. The actor bought his very own 50 acre island from top island broker Dr. Farhad Vladi, who has sold over 700 islands to the rich and famous. Vladi says, "It's very isolated, very beautiful with wonderful fauna. We flew there by helicopter - me and Nicolas and his wife, actress Patricia Arquette - and within a few minutes of landing I could see the look on their faces that says 'Yes, at last, I can be happy here.'" The couple who were said to be on the brink of divorce last year, are looking forward to spending time alone on the island. »

Christian Bale Has Miserable Time On Captain Corelli

22 June 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Christian Bale is having a miserable time filming Captain Corelli's Mandolin (2001) - and he's losing weight fast because The Food's so awful. The British heart-throb is on the remote island of Kefalonia filming the romantic movie with Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz. But friends of the American Psycho (2000) star claim he's very unhappy and only took the movie because his character Mandras was supposed to swim with dolphins. But a pal says, "That's the only part of the book, they've cut out from the film, so he's not going to get his chance to swim with dolphins. He hates The Food and I get e-mails every day from him saying that's he's lost another 5 pounds (2. 3kg) because he can't eat anything. He says the weather is too hot as well, he's not enjoying it at all." »
