Reese Witherspoon & Sofia Vergara for Hot Pursuit - they had an “interesting” chemistry

We played a Newlywed-style game with whiteboards & Reese made a totally playful joke at Sofia’s expense. Sofia then asked if she could draw Reese and drew her spread eagle and naked ☠️

A Press Junket is a day long press event for a movie where journalists get a certain amount of time to interview the movie talent

A rat, or rather, the biggest rat I’ve ever seen in my life once interrupted my junket with James McAvoy a few years ago. He handled the situation with as much class and humour as you’d expect... I didn’t.

He angrily corrected her, she profusely apologized. He stewed for a few seconds then shouted about how long he’d been in the business, and stormed off. The door was far away so he had a long way to stomp, Mugatu in Zoolander-style. The other actors all rolled their eyes.

2/2 . . . unlock them, once I had pulled him off and convinced him I could help. During our surreal chat he gave me his phone number so I could come meet him and drive one of his Ferraris. I called him, for shits and giggles, and it WAS his real number. Didn't leave a message.

The Alexander junket in London where everyone except Angelina was stoned/drunk. A horror show. I also one took out an entire lighting rig walking off with mic on after a Kevin spacey interview. I have so many....

I can tell you that Affleck has refused to talk to us ever since this video went viral...

Bruce Willis changed into a bath robe at 2pm during the Red 2 London junket - midway through doing video interviews - throwing the whole floor of a hotel into a panic. He clearly did it for that exact purpose.

Bruce on more than one occasion with me has refused to lift a microphone to his face so he can actually be heard. He’s a gem.

Whaaaaaaaaat. I’m going to need a little more information on this one.

So a light blew and the power went out at a Paris junket. He grabbed the poor BBC journalist by the arm and dragged him into a hotel room and locked them both in. Tom was crazed. It took the organizers ages to get them out.
