Sarah Michelle GellarSarah Michelle Gellar - "Southland Tales" Movie - When are you due ?
Monday 19 June 2006, by Webmaster
Michael Ausiello interviewed SNL-star and "Southland Tales" co-star Cheri Oteri. Amoung other things, she talked about Sarah Michelle Gellar and "Southland Tales"!
One of my colleagues saw a photo of your costar, Sarah Michelle Gellar, at the premiere and said she looked pregnant. What’s the scoop?
Cheri: This is the funny thing. You know Zelda from Poltergeist?
Cheri: I don’t know what her last name is.
No, that’s her character’s name in Poltergeist.
Cheri: Oh, well, she’s in the movie and she was sitting in a wheelchair next to me, Sarah and The Rock, and Zelda goes, "When are you due?" And Sarah looked at her like... "[Pshaw]." She was very polite about it, but I felt the need to intervene, so I said, "She’s having a bow" - because there was a bow right in the center. I guess that is what made her look [pregnant].
What did Sarah say?
Cheri: She said, "Oh, no, I’m not pregnant. I must just look pregnant in this dress." And I go, "Sarah, it’s the bow." And she goes, "You don’t have to say anything, it’s OK." And the Zelda goes, "Oh, I’m sorry, honey." You gotta forgive her, but still, haven’t we learned never to say that?
Is there anything worse than calling a woman pregnant when she isn’t?
Cheri: Oh my god. I met Morgan Freeman at a restaurant, and I just wanted to go over to him and say how much I’ve enjoyed him on Electric Company. He was so gracious and so nice and he said, "So, when are you due?" And I go, "I’ll tell you what I won’t do is wear this shirt again."
Cheri: And I never wore that shirt again, because it [made me look] pregnant. It would have been nice if I had known. I would have eaten a ton.
