The plot [of Simone, RRF] involves a film director who secretly creates a computer-generated actress to replace a temperamental real one, and the simulation becomes a star. Romijn plays the fake of the fake - a stand-in for the simulated woman, to fool paparazzi into thinking she really exists. (The implication fo the casting, of course, is that Romijn is the closest God has come to a computer-perfect female.)

The day Romijn shot with Pacino, she had a horrible cold, and while rehearsing a scene, she was hovering over the actor when "a huge drop of snot fell out of my nose and onto his face, missing his eye by a millimeter," she says. "I was shouting for Kleenex - pleading, begging, and it took a long time to get something to wipe it away. I was mortified." Pacino "was very sweet about it," she says. She drops her voice into a gruff Pacine imitation: '"Don't be silly. I loved it!'"
