Training Wasnt Required for XXX State of the Union: I didnt really do much training because all of my work is kind of wooing Cube and being kind of this sexual creature who walks around her shop and tries to entice. But at the same time, shes very, very smart and shes very sure of who she is and knows who she is and is not compromising. So its a very interesting and cool part.
A Change of Pace and Playing Sexy: It was great, it was really was. Shes a different kind of character for me, you know? All of my characters up until now have been very demure and not about their sexuality or their sensuality.
Tapping Into Her Sexuality: It wasnt hard at all because I feel that within myself sometimes. But none of my characters up to now have shown that, so it was a lot of fun to be able to let that out.
What Fans of XXX Will Like About XXX State of the Union: You know, this is a completely different kind of Triple X. X himself, Darius, is a different kind of X. Hes got some tricks for you that you just didnt see in the first one, and I think people will be very pleasantly at how different it is.
Next Up for Nona Gaye Crash: Paul [Haggis] was great to work with, a very difficult director. He really makes you work hard, which I dont mind because thats the kind of product you get when you work hard like that. It was all worth it. Working with Brendan Fraser a very good friend of mine, I love him dearly. Sandra Bullock was fabulous. Terrence [Howard], Matt [Dillon], Ryan [Phillippe] it was incredible.
Crash Addresses Racial Stereotypes. Did Paul Haggis Push it Too Far?: I think he took it just to where he needed to. But I also believe that if he did another film and took it farther, it wouldnt be a problem for me. I dont think it would because it just gets more and more real. And I love the fact that as we keep making movies, we keep stepping a little bit further. He and Don Cheadle - they really kind of just let it all out on this one.
