Hilary Duff Wows Writers With Film Extremes
The men behind Hilary Duff's new movie War Inc. felt sure they'd have to
rewrite some scenes when the squeaky-clean actress landed the lead -
because they'd be too crude for her. But the game actress/pop star
shocked them by going through with the risqué scenarios - which included
performing mock fellatio on a fuel pump and dropping a live scorpion
down her pants.
Writers Jeremy Pisker and Mark Leyner say, "We wrote a scene where her
character gives a blow job to a gas nozzle, and when we got Hilary to do
the movie, we thought, 'Well, we've got to rewrite that.' But she did
it." And co-star John Cusack admits her fake fellatio was better than
the one on paper:
"She did it in a more sly way. She licked it (the nozzle) like an
ice-cream cone. She did better than the script." When it came to the
scorpion scene, Duff, who plays a wildchild Eastern European pop star in
the film, had nothing to lose.
She explains, "I had done so much for this film by then, I couldn't
really say no." But Duff admits she was a little concerned her
tough-talking, wild character would upset her fans: "I have to have this
foul mouth, be this rude and crude girl who tries to be sexy but she's
so young and kind of vulgar."
