There are two famous actresses in Hollywood who do not speak to each other.
We know why.
It has to do with the casting of a critically-acclaimed film that was released earlier this century.
The director of the film based one of the characters on a real-life actress who has starred in a at least forty movies over the years.
The director had met the actress on several occasions and found her enthusiastic speech and over-the-top gestures annoying and phony.
When it came time to cast the part of a ditzy actress in a film, the director did not want to hire Phony… but wanted the part played as a Phony “type”!
We don’t know how the director communicated this to the actress who was hired, but the actress nailed it.
If you close your eyes and listen to the character, you could almost swear that Phony herself was playing the part!
Of course, the director denies that the character was based on Phony.
However, Phony knows the truth… and to this day refuses to speak to the actress who imitated her!
Film: “Lost in Translation”
Director: Sofia Coppola
Phony Actress: Cameron Diaz (rumor has it that the Anna Faris’ character, Kelly, was supposedly Cameron Diaz, with whom Spike Jonze worked with on “Being John Malkovich”)
Actress who played her: Anna Faris
