Witherspoon too short for VaughnNovember 18th, 2008 - 12:58 pm ICT by IANS
London, Nov 18 (IANS) Oscar winning actress Reese Witherspoon was too short for her co-star Vince Vaughn in the movie “Four Christmases”, as became clear when he had to pick her up for a few dancing scenes. Contactmusic.com reports that they had to be creative in solving the height problem.
She said: “He’s 6′5″ and I’m 5′2″. We had a really funny scene, I don’t know if it’s in the film any more, where he rolls over onto me. We were in bed and then at the very end he rolls over and goes to sleep, but he rolls over and lays on top of me. It was like a tree trunk had just landed on me. I kept going, ‘Tim-berrrrr!’ It was really funny.
“It was a challenge, especially the kissing scenes. It was hard to get up there to kiss him but we worked it out.
“And he had to pick me up for half the dancing. He’s actually holding me in the air so we can stay in the same frame. He’s a fantastic dancer. A very, very good dancer, which you’d probably figure from Swingers. They were teaching us dance moves. I just couldn’t keep up and he was like, ‘Oh, it’s a one-two cha cha cha’.”
