Robert Richard on the Paris Hilton Strip Tease Scene: It wasnt crazy. We were relaxed and professional. Ive had my shirt off and shes had her shirt off in scenes before.
First Reaction to the House of Wax Script: You know, I loved it. I loved being a part of this project. I read it and I fell in love with it and then I went out and got it. Then when they told me that they actually hired me, I was jumping up and down screaming and going crazy. I told my dad about it and my girlfriend. Everyone.
Had He Watched the Original House of Wax Film with Vincent Price?: Yes, I sure did. When I got the part the first thing I did was I went out and got House of Wax and checked it and compared it to our script. Theres some differences but I mean, ultimately, its really thrilling and exciting and I think everyone out here is going to love it.
The One Scene Thatll Grab Horror Fans: Okay, theres this one scene oh, I shouldnt tell you this Theres this one scene where theyre taking the wax and theyre spreading it over Elishas mouth Elisha Cuthberts mouth. And then the killer blows on the wax right in front of her lips. Its kind of one of those things thats kind of like really seductive but also really scary. So I think the girls are going to freak out about that because Im sure girls have nightmares about that kind of stuff.
There are Lots of Horror Remakes Out There. What Separates House of Wax from the Pack?: I think this is really a thrill ride that theyre going to go on. Theyre going to be scared and its going to be a lot of fun and whatnot. And its young people and theyre all Hollywood hot stars and whatnot so I think everyones going to go out and enjoy it.
On Having an MTV Crew Follow the Cast Around: It was sort of surreal. Youd go about your daily life, youd buy groceries and get food and what not, but then when someones documenting you it seems a little bit [surreal].
Watch What You Say. It May Be on TV: Richard claims he didnt have to be careful about how he talked off the set, even with the MTV crew following him around. I dont really have that much of a potty mouth but Im sure it can be a little invasive of your privacy, said Richard.
