Just as I was being reminded of what a groundbreaking film Leap Year was in my last post, NY Magazine was digging up a quote from the Telegraph profile of Matthew Goode about his experience working on it.

‘That was the main reason I took it – so that I could come home at the weekends. It wasn’t because of the script, trust me. I was told it was going to be like The Quiet Man with a Vaughan Williams soundtrack, but in the end it turned out to have pop music all over it. Do I feel I let myself down? No. Was it a bad job? Yes, it was. But, you know, I had a nice time and I got paid.”

Fair enough, dude, and well said.  I only wish actors had to be this honest during those stupid press tour interviews.

BILLY BUSH:  So, John, tell us about your character in The Pacifier 6.  What’s he like?  Is he a guy you’d hang with?

JOHN CENA: I’m not sure because I didn’t really read the script, but that’s a good question.  I’ll tell you this though, craft services had roasted almonds instead of trail mix and that shi- was the bomb!  I mean does anyone even like trail mix?  What’s up with that sh-t? Why do they always have it everywhere?  Tell you what, bro, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.
