Jason Bateman was in Dublin last week promoting The Change Up. His new body switch film with Ryan Reynolds and Leslie Mann. I got the opportunity to chat to him for movies.ie.
I was very nervous going in to meet him as he was the first ‘poster’ I was ever interviewing. By that I mean, I’ve done a few interviews over the years but none of them were posters on my bedroom wall when I was growing up. Jason Bateman posters took up quite a bit of wall space in my bedroom. I was really hoping he would be as nice as I had imagined. I am happy to say that he was and that wall space I devoted to him wasn’t wasted! 😉 Jason Bateman has to be one of the nicest, coolest, and hottest men in Hollywood!
We chatted about what makes this film different to all of the other body switch films, getting naked, who he’d switch bodies with, surviving in Hollywood and what’s happening with the Arrested Development film. Check out the interview below and do check out The Change Up – it’s a fun time at the cinema.
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
