Anna Anna Anna (Faris, or, rather, LaShawn Malone!)
« on: September 05, 2008, 12:32:44 pm »
I love LaShawn--and I love Anna Faris (a funny, funny and very smart lady)!

The Hot Seat


Hot Seat
Anna Faris
She’s Stonette of the Year and she loves to get drunk and dance.

Fact: Anna Faris pronounces her first name to rhyme with Donna, not Vanna. Also true: She’s embarrassed about having to do so. “It’s really annoying, actually, that my parents did that to me,” says the 31-year-old comedic actor, best known for the Scary Movie franchise and a scene-stealing role in Lost in Translation. “I’m always afraid that people are thinking that I’m a little pretentious when I say my name.” Aficionados of Faris—who won High Times magazine’s 2007 Stonette of the Year award—know that her characters are anything but pretentious, which is proved again in The House Bunny. She plays a naive Playboy centerfold wanna-be who accidentally becomes the Henry Higgins to a clan of misfit sorority girls after being booted from Hugh Hefner’s legendary mansion.

Time Out New York: Don’t take this the wrong way, but at times The House Bunny feels like an ad for Playboy.
Anna Faris: Well, that’s what it is. We want it to be the goal of all the young women in America to be a Playboy bunny. And if they don’t quite make the cut, then they can be a waitress at the Playboy Mansion!

TONY: Why not class it up with Hustler? Or Oui?
Anna Faris: [Laughs] Well, I guess Playboy still maintains a little bit of an innocence about it. It’s not that naughty anymore, especially in this day and age. And we didn’t want to delve too deeply into the reality of being a Hustler centerfold.

TONY: Good point. Still, where’s the nudity?
Anna Faris: I’m sorry. I’m really sorry about that. Maybe for the DVD extras we’ll give you a whole Girls Gone Wild–type special.

TONY: Thanks! You appeared in Lost in Translation with Scarlett Johansson and in Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds. Are you going to their wedding?
Anna Faris: You know, I haven’t received my invitation yet. It must just be lost. And I’m so good at weddings too! I deliver really long monologues, which people seem to love. I get wasted and then I really tear it up on the dance floor. I’m the perfect wedding guest. So hopefully the invitation will be arriving any day.

TONY: Your character goes on two nightmarish dates in The House Bunny. What’s your own worst dating experience?
Anna Faris: I remember one date with this fraternity guy when I was in college. I was feeling a little rowdy, so I grabbed these whole limes off the bar—like, three of them—and ate them, the rinds and everything. I was gnawing away at these limes as if to say, “This is something I do every day, so get used to it, buddy!” And of course I spent the next four or five hours vomiting. Like, vomiting where there’s absolutely nothing left to vomit.

TONY: You’re right, that doesn’t sound like a very good date.
Anna Faris: Oh, but he was really impressed!

TONY: Really?
Anna Faris: Uh, no. He never spoke to me again. Why would he?

TONY: Were you in a sorority then?
Anna Faris: No. I lived in the dorms and off campus. I had a hard time finding myself in college. I was with the rave crowd for a while. And then I was with the drum-circle crowd.

TONY: Seriously—what the hell is a drum circle?
Anna Faris: You know, it’s, like, where a bunch of people get stoned and sit around and play drums and think they sound good.

TONY: Wow. Would something like that ever be fun, even if you were stoned?
Anna Faris: Well, it wasn’t my crowd. But I don’t have much sense of rhythm so maybe it just wasn’t my scene.

TONY: You won High Times magazine’s Stonette of the Year award for Smiley Face and Entourage. How does it feel?
Anna Faris: Awesome. I’ve got my bong award on my fireplace. It’s the only award I’ve ever won. I’m so, so proud. My parents are as well.

TONY: Does the bong actually work?
Anna Faris: Yes, it does. I can celebrate myself while enjoying myself! [Pauses] That makes no sense.

The House Bunny is out Fri 22.

This is a good idea for a thread Bud!  I've noticed Anna in the news quite a bit lately.

Isn't it interesting how many women are named Ann- (Anne, Anna, Annie) who are involved in BBM?

We rented Smiley Face this past weekend, and I thought it was great!

It was kind of a day-in-the-life comedy — maybe not the deepest plot ever written.  But the cast was great, especially Anna!  The film got lukewarm critical reviews but they all praised her performance.

The Girl Can’t Help It
With Observe and Report,  Anna Faris turns her epic ditziness
into fine, crass art.

Being adorable can be such a grind. “When you play a girl who is trying to get the guy, there’s so much pressure to make people fall in love with you,” says Anna Faris. “It’s like your job is to be the most charming person you could possibly imagine—who sometimes falls. That’s fun sometimes, but it’s also really exhausting.”

This is probably true—but honestly, how would Faris know? Unlike Barrymore, Zellweger, and Witherspoon, she’s never actually played the spunky romantic lead; she has always been the ditzy, idiotic second banana, and she has never played a more ditzy or idiotic twit than Brandi, the epically crass cosmetics-counter girl in the new dark and twisted comedy Observe and Report.  “I love unapologetic comedy,” says Faris. “That kind of role comes around so rarely for women.” And when it does, she is one of the few actresses fearless enough to play it, well, balls out. Consider the Scary Movie  franchise: “My character [Cindy Campbell] was so one-dimensional—a less-dimensional character could not be written,” says Faris of her breakout role, in which she perfected a slack-jawed, uncomprehending blankness. “I had four looks. Four. Eventually, [director Keenen Ivory Wayans] would be like, ‘Okay, Look No. 2.’ That was a wince. There was also a look he called ‘Who farted?’ because, well …” Faris laughs. “For an actor, it is humiliating when your expressions get reduced to a number—and you only have four.”

Oh, but there was so much more scene-stealing stupidity to follow: as a clueless motormouth wife in Brokeback Mountain, a brazenly dumb actress in Lost in Translation   (rumored to be based on Cameron Diaz, though Faris denies it), a moronic waitress (Waiting ), a sloppy Britney-ish pop star (Just Friends ), a near-catatonic stoner (Smiley Face ), and an impossibly naïve Playboy model (The House Bunny,  which she produced). But all of those gals were models of propriety and decorum compared with Brandi: “Being so self-absorbed, narcissistic, and wonderfully delusional,” says the actress, “was just a joy.”

The vapid love object of a loser of a mall cop played by Seth Rogen, Brandi is all surface—so Faris started from the outside and squeezed her way in, donning a “push-up bra that is just enormous” as part of an all-black faux-sophisticate ensemble that the movie’s director, Jody Hill (The Foot Fist Way ), describes as “dirty intern.” The key to playing Brandi, however, was her long, fake nails. “I know it sounds so minor,” says Faris, “but they were the most helpful device. I mean, they make you totally useless. You can’t do anything. They handicap you, essentially.”

It’s a testament to Faris’s particular prowess that in almost all of her scenes with Rogen, he is the straight man, and most hilariously in their instant-classic seduction-and-sex sequence, which teeters precariously between the hilarious and the offensive. (This would be a spoiler if it weren’t in the R-rated trailer.) After downing tequila shots and clonazepam pills to lower her standards, Faris is so sloppy drunk as they stumble into bed that she soon passes out. When Rogen notices, mid-act, that she isn’t responding, the scene begins to resemble a seriously disturbing rape scene (think Kids ). “It kind of gives you pause. It’s like date rape,” says Faris. “Like, hmmm, that’s funny, uh, right?”

When it was screened at the hipster-heavy South by Southwest music festival in Austin, the audience was unnervingly quiet; a few looked ready to walk out. But then Faris, eyes closed and splattered with her own vomit, blurts out, “Why are you stoppin’, motherfucker?” and the audience exploded. (Hill swears the next scene “is really funny, too, but most people miss it.”) “When the scene was shot,” says Faris, “I was lying there thinking, ‘This is wrong on so many levels. There is no way Warner Bros. is going to keep this in.’ I’ve done my share of studio stuff that’s wrong and never got into the movie—male nudity, semen, a few boobs. But there it is. My parents have something to look forward to.”

Hill says that rather than soften unappealing material, Faris tends to push things harder. “She wanted to go further and wear a motorcycle helmet while they were having sex,” he says. “And it was her idea, on their date, to be slurping down giant shrimp the whole time. She’s just kinda willing to do whatever—anything.”

“There have been plenty of times where I’ve thought, ‘Nope, nobody else would do that,’ ” agrees Faris. “In Scary Movie 3,  I’m in one scene, spinning around on a pole like The Matrix,  strapped to this apparatus for six hours, spitting vomit all over me, and I’m like, ‘Yup, I’m willin’. ’ ”

Other than the obvious (and recurring) allure of vomit gags, Faris has no idea why she’s funny. If she has a method, it’s to approach drama and comedy in the same way. “I think there has to be an earnestness in any character,” she says. “A sincerity for whatever their belief system is. I asked Keenen Wayans a few times, kind of indulgently, ‘Why would you cast me?’ He finally said, ‘Because you had no idea what you were doing.’ I knew that part! I used to feel a tremendous pressure to do drama, especially when I couldn’t even get auditions because I was known as the spoof girl,” adds Faris, who was rejected for sexy roles on shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer  and Six Feet Under.  “But I’ve come to embrace my love of comedy.”

Faris is eager to produce more films for herself, “because there just aren’t enough out there for women,” she says. “And that’s okay—that’s what the boys do. It’s not like this is revolutionary, you know?”

One fantasy project includes a response to Sex and the City.  “I love that show—I annoy my fiancé all the time making him watch it,” says Faris, who is engaged to actor Chris Pratt (Everwood ). “But we’ve seen so many ambitious women in the last ten years of comedy, and their comedy comes from trying to balance guys and jobs and fashion. I want to play the girl that has zero ambition, the girl who’s stoned, playing video games, wearing the same things for weeks in a row. I want to see what she’s up to: the girl who just says ‘Fuck it.’ ”
