Vogue Interview


Rebecca Romijn has been defending her reputation as a tough chick. The Victoria's Secret beauty, who gave up modelling to try her hand at the acting game early in 2000, has taken time to set the record straight about a recent story about her that appeared in the National Enquirer. "There was a story that I snotted on Al Pacino when I was doing a make-out scene in a movie called Simone, "she tells a US magazine. "They said a drop fell out of my nose and onto his face - which it did - but they said I ran away crying, which isn't true. I was embarrassed, but I sure wasn't crying.

"So we hashed it out and shot it lit in silhouette." Still, aside from the perils of shooting sans clothes, Romijn much prefers the acting life to that of the mandated cheerfulness of modeling. "It was nice to walk around [the movie set] in a dark mood," she said.
