|Interview with Callum Blue and Chris Pine from "Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement"|
What were your auditions like for "Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement?"
Why does your character wear glasses instead of contact lenses in the movie?
I'm near-sighted. I can see you but it's a little blurry. I'm pretty bad. In 3rd grade I had to get glasses and I cried for days because I thought I was going to be a dork. But glasses make people very, very cool (laughing).
Which do you prefer, TV or movies?
CALLUM BLUE: Three years, I'm not over the hill (laughing). For me, at this stage in my career, I like TV better because I got to live with my character in "Dead Like Me" for two seasons. I come into a movie and it's harder because I got the character in the last week of shooting, and that's no good to me. I think when you're an experienced film actor, you can come in and turn it on straight away. But for me, it takes a little bit of time. For me at the moment, TV is rewarding me more because I really get the character.
What do you do when you're not working?
CHRIS PINE: I've been reading a lot of mediation books recently... I've been boxing a lot, which has been good. The big thing when I got this part was they wanted to pump me up because I'm a skinny little bean pole. They're like, "Can you work out a little bit?" And, of course, I start working out after the movie (laughing). I've seen a lot of movies. But it's so true, the big fear for an actor is when the dream is going to end.
CALLUM BLUE: It could happen at any time, so you have to be thankful for every day.
CHRIS PINE: Exactly. I think I'm going to do a couple of musicals coming up.
Will you sing?
