From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.
As we all know Milla is really hyper when she does interviews. Which actually makes them fun to watch. It's like when Quentin Tarantino does interviews and he's so out of his mind, that they're fun.
She talks about how she was a fan of Nakita and that her and her friends would drive down the street yelling "La Femme Nakita". "It was our movie." she says.
She said that she had to audition for The Fifth Element, since she was a fan of Nakita. She got the part out of 1000 actresses. She was 19 at the time and had to prepare for months. When she met Luc, she was taken by how crazy he was. She said that in her audition, she had to dance for him. And Luc just sat there with no expression on his face just laughing.
Little did she know, she would marry him.
She talks about how coming up with a look for Leeloo was tricky and they weren't getting anywhere. We see footage of Milla dressed up in different kinds of costumes that aren't very Leeloo like. "I had to dress up in crappy 80's MTV clothing." When they found the costume they were looking for, they needed to find a look for her hair.
Her hair was bleached to make it look blonde, but then it started falling out. Poor Milla. She had to wear a wig throughout filming.
She talks about filming the martial arts scene and that a fake leg had to used to make look like she kicked one of the aliens in the face. It reminds me of a Zucker Bros gag.
She said that Bruce Willis made her feel comfortable and that he was funny.
A fun interview for fans of the movie.
