Faris feels bad about mocking Diaz in ‘Lost In Translation’August 18th, 2008 - 2:48 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 18 (IANS) Actress Anna Faris says she still feels bad about having unknowingly mocked actress Cameron Diaz in the award winning movie “Lost In Translation”. Faris played the role of Kelly, a B-list film actress, in the movie. There were reports that writer and director Sofia Coppola had based the role on Diaz to mock her, reports contactmusic.com.
“That’s been really hard… I auditioned, without having read the script, pretty much exactly the way I played it (character) in the movie. I filmed for only about a week, so I didn’t get that much one-on-one time with Sofia Coppola.
“When the movie came out eight or nine months later and these questions (about making fun of Diaz) started coming, I felt blindsided. I felt defensive at first… I felt so terrible about the whole thing.”
Faris is still stunned that her character is based on Diaz. “I don’t think Sofia’s that vindictive,” she said.
