Teen Television Interview


At the fancy Ritz Carlton hotel in Pasadena, California, WB stars gathered to give the press the latest news on their current TV shows and upcoming brand new series. In a richly decorated but rather dark, atmospheric room guests chowed down, mingled and chatted. Ah, blonde hair, tall and a great party dress with an interesting diamond cut-out in the back? Must be Rebecca Romijn ... you know, Jerry O’Connell’s girlfriend and that sexy blue Mystique lady in X-Men? She’s got a new comedy show on the WB Called “Pepper Dennis” in which she plays a TV reporter. Let’s do our own reporting thing and get the story…

TeenTelevision: Hi Rebecca. Are you allowed to give the producers of “Pepper Dennis” any ideas for storylines?

Rebecca: Oh, I call him all the time [indicating one of her producers standing nearby]. I come up with all sorts of things that are probably way too specific. Like, at one point, I called him and said ‘will you please put in a whole thing about men who wear flip flops because I really have an issue with that. ‘Can we make sure Pepper can’t stand it when men wear flip flops’? We really get down to the nitty gritty but I find it really therapeutic myself.

TeenTelevision: I dated a guy who wore flip flops to a fancy party. It’s not pretty! [she laughs]. Was there any anchorwoman that you saw growing up that you decided you wanted to use as an example for this character?

Rebecca: I never watched the news with the thought in mind that I might one day play a news anchor but I really get a kick out of watching local news now.
