Why Cameron Diaz ‘Cried Uncontrollably’ Over Annie & Carol Burnett’s Take

first_img Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Dec. 14, 2014 “It’s not very often you get to do a musical. Even though I was terrified of doing it, I kind of had to,” Diaz said. “The two things I’m most terrified of are heights and singing in front of people. I’ve jumped out of airplanes and scaled sides of cliffs—not to get over my fears, but to address them. I just felt like this is something that needed to be addressed. I cried uncontrollably. Everybody was so supportive and having fun with it because I was so pathetic, but the only way to get through scary things is to have a sense of humor about it.” The new remake of Annie, which features Quvenzhane Wallis in the title role as well as a starry cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale and more, opens on December 19. Broadway.com asked Love Letters star Carol Burnett, who memorably played the Miss Hannigan in the 1982 movie version of Annie, her take on Diaz as the boozy orphanage caretaker. “Oh, I think she’ll be wonderful! I’ve been a fan of hers since My Best Friend’s Wedding, that one with Julia Roberts where she stole the movie,” Burnett said. “I don’t mean that disparagingly for Julia Roberts because I’m a big fan of hers, but [when I saw Diaz], I said, ‘Whoa! Who is this girl?!’ She was so funny. I think she’s going to be great.”center_img Cameron Diaz is a hard-ass Miss Hannigan in the upcoming movie remake of the beloved Broadway musical, but the actress had to face her fears to play the role.

All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with win over Wallabies in Wellington

first_imgDespite a vastly better performance than last week’s capitulation in Sydney, Australia never looked likely to win and could do little to stop the All Blacks once their irresistible catch-and-pass game clicked into gear.The result brings Australia’s losing streak under Michael Cheika to six matches – one short of the seven defeats in 2005 that eventually led to the sacking of Eddie Jones.A sold-out crowd of 35,372 was on hand at a windswept Wellington Stadium, where the Wallabies have not won for 16 years.They began with clear intent but still fell down in key areas, coughing up three lineouts and struggling to contain the slick, polished world champions, missing 27 tackles to six.Quade Cooper had a mixed showing in his first Test for almost a year and, as expected, was booed with nearly every touch.The All Blacks were not as clinical as last week but were still far too good for Australia.They led 15-9 at half-time after Australia debutant Reece Hodge nailed a 52-metre penalty shot but spent most of the second stanza in cruise control, with tries from Julian Savea and Sam Cane snuffing out any chance of an unlikely Australian comeback.Winger Israel Dagg also crossed for a first-half double, his second try set up by a scintillating Beauden Barrett run.The Wallabies barely had a sniff in attack with the All Blacks dominating possession and territory all night.The closest they came was when Nick Phipps crossed in the dying moments but lost control of the ball as he tried to touch down.Australia’s only scores were two penalties from Bernard Foley and one 35th-minute three-pointer by Hodge, who was thrown into the mix earlier than expected after veteran winger Adam Ashley-Cooper went off with concussion in the 17th minute.Two-Test lock Adam Coleman was also yellow-carded just before the interval for a late shoulder charge on Ben Smith.The Wallabies will look to recover from what has been a nightmare fortnight when they face South Africa on September 10 at Lang Park.The final Bledisloe Test will be played at Eden Park on October 22.last_img read more
