“Josh’s biggest complaint is when we’re talking on the phone and I’m just like, ‘Yeah, I miss you, too.’ I’m not like, ‘I miss you so much! I love you!’ I just can’t—it’s not my thing. I definitely try to do something special for him—could be as simple as making dinner or tickling his back—but I don’t make big, grand gestures. Maybe I should.”
—KATHERINE HEIGL, currently starring in the comedy 27 Dresses, on new husband Josh Kelley
HEROES STAR MILO VENTIMIGLIA DISHES ON …
His ride: I have a Cadillac. My grandfather was first generation Italian; he worked really hard, and when he got to a certain point he bought himself a Cadillac. It’s one of those American dream type of things.
His teen years: I should show you my sophomore-year high school picture. My face was going from boy to teenager, my hair was starting to curl up and I had braces. I had a bad haircut and was very skinny.
Understanding the opposite sex: I don’t think I’m ever going to figure out women, but I had two older sisters and an amazing mother, so I can read them better than the average guy.
Plan B: When I was a struggling actor, I thought about ditching it to be a mechanic.
Not going back to college: I’m a UCLA dropout. I was four years in and work took over. I’m hoping to build a $20 million theater and get an honorary degree.
“I have so many shoes that I started taking pictures of them and putting them in boxes with the picture on it. But I do limit myself; I’ve bought only the amount that fit in my closet. Any time I get a new pair, I have to get rid of one.”
—HILARY SWANK, currently starring in P.S. I Love You, on how she keeps her shoe obsession in check
3 Questions For…
1 IN YOUR UPCOMING FILM PENELOPE, YOU DON A PIG NOSE. HOW TEDIOUS WAS THAT?
I had a rule: I couldn’t complain about it or touch it until we only had three hours left in the day. I knew if I started in the beginning, it would be all day long of wanting to rip it off my face.
2 DID YOU EVER GO OFF-SET WITH THE NOSE ON?
They were very sensitive about me being seen with the nose. I’d want to go to Starbucks and I’d walk out of my trailer, and you’d see all the production assistants panic.
3 YOU HAVE A NICE NOSE IN REAL LIFE, BUT IS THERE ANYTHING YOU ARE INSECURE ABOUT?
My sister and I have two insecurities, which are pretty funny. You know how everybody has something? Well, whenever we go out, we always ask each other, “Do I look butch?” and “Do I look crazy?” We’re terrified we either look crazy or like boys.
