INTERVIEW WITH AMANDA PEET ('Jill'):
How was the atmosphere on set?
It was so boring. Theyre so serious. It was a difficult time (laughing).
How tough was it to get back into that character?
It was very easy. I just looked at Matthew [Perry] and looked at Bruce, and we just got right back into it.
Was there any particular scene that was tough to make it through because you were laughing?
Whenever I was with Kevin Pollak, I had to leave the room. So whenever you see me talking to Kevin Pollak in the movie, Im not really talking. Im down the hall trying to be quiet, and hes doing his lines with somebody else.
Could you understand him?
With that accent? What is he doing? I dont know. Sometimes I could but when I couldnt, it was still really funny.
Did the script pretty much just go flying out the window?
(Laughing) A little bit, yeah.
There was a lot of adlibbing?
Is it tough to keep up with Matthew Perry when it comes to adlibbing?
I dont like to think of it as tough, but yeah. I would go to his trailer in the morning and knock on the door and say, How do I deliver this line? How do I make it funny? He would say, Okay, honey, this is how you deliver that line.
What can you tell me about your upcoming film, Melinda and Melinda?
Melinda is Radha Mitchell the beautiful Radha Mitchell. I play Will Ferrells wife in the movie. He has a crush on Radha and we dont have a very good marriage.
Will Woody Allen play a role in Melinda and Melinda?
Hes directing it but I dont think hes in it. I only got my own pages so you have to understand that Im a little bit in the dark, not dissimilar to the way I was on The Whole Ten Yards.
And whats A Lot Like Love?
Ashton Kutcher and I are playing friends, kind of like When Harry Met Sally. Its a big love story that goes over [a period of] years. We hate each other in the beginning.
You play Bruce Willis' wife in "The Whole Ten Yards" and Ashton Kutcher's girlfriend in "A Lot Like Love." Do you feel like Demi Moores onscreen doppelganger?
I would love and you can quote me I would love to be Demi Moores doppelganger. I can only hope to be that.
