I'm relieved that Kevin Williamson is back in our lives, even tangentially, thanks to Scream 4 (or Scre4m, if you prefer your horror cinema Ke$hified). But while he's giving fine, diplomatic interviews in 2011, the Kevin Williamson of 1999 who confessed his insecurities to Movieline magazine might be even more entertaining. Did his predictions about teen slashers and Neve Campbell (not to mention the cast of Dawson's Creek) manifest? Let's visit the Movieline vault and see.
Who knows more about sex, dating, breaking up, and making bad decisions in the name of love than A-listers like Drew Barrymore, Johnny Depp and Charlie Sheen? This Valentine's Day take a trip into the Movieline Vault -- home of over 20 years of revealing, to-the-point celebrity interviews -- for lessons on first dates, inadvisable hook-ups, and more, straight from the mouths of Hollywood's brightest stars. Well, circa 1990.
If it's Tuesday, that means it's time for you to once again furiously search through Movieline's history in The Vault. The archives from 2002 are currently available for your perusing pleasure, and in addition to early interviews with James Franco, Beyonce and Emile Hirsch, there's a brief sit-down with Jason Isaacs. At the time, Isaacs was gearing up to play Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter an the Chamber of Secrets. What was his favorite part of the high-profile job? "They shot in London, which is my home, and I got to bring my godkids with me and impress the sh*t out of my friends." Imagine how impressed they would have been if he didn't have to share a haircut with Legolas. [The Vault]
You simply never know what kind of treasures await you inside the Movieline Vault. Case in point: This 2001 interview with Michael Bay, where the notorious director talks not only about the wonders of Pearl Harbor, but also that time when Sean Connery called him a "f***head."
Much like a painful cut on the roof of your mouth, this Charlie Sheen incident just won't go away. It was revealed today that the hooker Sheen was found with at the Plaza Hotel wasn't a hooker at all, but actually porn star Capri Anderson. TMZ even unearthed a photo of Anderson and Sheen's ex-wife, Denise Richards, at restaurant Daniel a mere hours before the actor was making a mess in his hotel room. If only Richards had heeded her own advice from this 1999 Movieline interview, though, things might have been different: "People say all the time, 'Never date an actor.' I say, 'That depends on the actor.'" Better luck next time, Denise. [The Vault]
Jack Nicholson has no true rivals in Hollywood. Who, after all, could compete with his one-two punch of long-term success on-screen and indelible persona off-screen? Here Nicholson talks about the ease of identifying with the devil, the joy of wearing a mask and the pain of doing one line 147 times for Stanley Kubrick.
