Cannes Interview


Former model Rebecca Romijn said Sunday (05-13-2001, RRF) she had taken to the bottle to calm her nerves and do a strip tease in Brian De Palma's forthcoming erotic thriller "Femme Fatale."

"It was the scariest thing I've ever done...practice and a couple of shots of tequila got me through it," she told Reuters at the Cannes film festival.

Romijn, who starred in the recent hit "X-Men" and the soon-to-be-released remake of "Rollerball," plays Laure in
"Femme Fatale," a con woman who is trying to outrun her past by stealing another woman's identity.

USA Today Interview


For Rebecca Romijn, having the looks of a model wasn't as important as having the patience of a model on the set of X-Men, opening July 14, 2000.

The former MTV House of Style host, who plays the mutant villain Mystique in the action film, endured makeup sessions that lasted six to eight hours, which was how long it took to apply about 70 self-sticking silicon scales to her body and paint her bright blue.

Maxim Interview


Maxim: Our villain character, Mystique, is shapely and a shapechanger. If you possessed her superpower in real life. who would you morph into?
Rebecca: How about Pamela Anderson so I could have sex with Tommy Lee? [Laughs] No I'm kidding. Although that's probably your fantasy of me. Actually I'd morph into either Ben or Jerry so I could walk into any Ben & Jerry's store and get free ice cream anytime I wanted.

Sunspot Interview


Now I ask you - isn't Antonio Banderas walking a little taller these days? The sexy one is in Paris shooting his latest movie, "Femme Fatale," in which he stars with the stunning Rebecca Romijn of "X-Men" fame. Antonio stands around 5 feet, 10 inches tall and couldn't get over how his leading lady towered above him when they met. Now he is wearing lifts in his 0shoes and Rebecca, fully 6 feet without heels, doesn't make Mr. Fabulous look any the less so.

Elle Interview


Rebecca Romijn felt as if she were living our one of those actor-specific nightmares: It was three weeks into filming the remake of Rollerball, in which she has a starring role, and her director, John McTierman, had hardly spoken to her. What she didn't know was that she was basically freaking McTierman out.

Elle Interview


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.)
