Hamish Linklater talks Brooklyn Decker & Battleship

Posted by clau with No Comments

Brooklyn’s co-star from “Battleship” Hamish Linklater opened up about our girl & the movie in a recent interview, here is what he said about it …

PW: So I have to ask, how does a guy — who claims to hate being in front of cameras — wind up in a super huge production like “Battleship?”
Hamish: Dude, it was so freakin’ awesome – they would have four cameras rolling all the time, plus Peter Berg [director] is a genius. So not only are they always filming, but he’s shouting at you from off-camera. Things like, “more kick-ass! Say this! Awesome!” So it’s a super visceral experience and not zen at all. “Alright, let’s concentrate and calmly call action as you all mentally enter the scene.” You have no choice but to be in the moment when aliens are attacking you.

PW: Who do you play in the movie?
Hamish: I play Cal Zapata – which I realized is “Viva Zapata,” the Marlon Brando movie, and Cal from “East of Eden,” so I’m basically a combination of James Dean and Marlon Brando as a NASA scientist who is on this island with a lot of satellites, which the aliens need to use so they can call for reinforcements.

PW: Just you vs. the aliens?
Hamish: I’m with Brooklyn Decker, who plays the girlfriend of Taylor Kitch’s character, who is on the ships. So there’s guys in the water fighting the aliens and me with Brooklyn on the land, fighting the aliens. And let me tell you, Brooklyn is dressed very conservatively [laughs].

PW: Oh, I’m sure she’s quite demure and science-like!
Hamish: Oh yea. But let me say, she’s awesome. Brooklyn just glows with goodness, and not just good-lookingness. Solid, really genuine goodness. And she’s wicked fun.

PW: Going from “The Future” to “Battleship” must have been like jumping from a hot tub to an ice bath.
Hamish: It was just like a really incredibly lucky year. “Christine” came to an end, which was so sad, but I was able to jump into the Miranda July movie after that, then I went to the park where I shared a dressing room with Al Pacino as we did “Merchant of Venice” and went from that to “Battleship.”

“Battleship” trailer will be released this summer

Posted by andre with No Comments

“I am very happy with the film, and of course I enjoyed the comments from people like [James] Cameron or Stephen Colbert, who wondered who would play the red pegs and who’d play the white pegs. I really appreciated their support. I understand the skepticism, but I think people will be surprised when Universal releases a trailer this summer. That should calm some of the fretting over the casting of the pegs. Universal has been really supportive through the whole process.”

Throw that scale away!

Posted by andre with No Comments

Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker may have made a splash in a teeny-tiny yellow bikini in her debut film, “Just Go With It,” but the Ohio native has a unique piece of advice on how to get her killer figure: Chuck the scale!

“Throw it out the window,” declares Decker. “I got rid of mine three years ago, and I haven’t been on one since. When you put on muscle, you gain weight, and it has nothing to do with size.”

The bodacious blonde doesn’t waste time dreaming of cheeseburgers, “Eating is more fulfilling if you talk about what you should eat rather than what you shouldn’t,” the 24-year old explained to Self magazine. “Instead of worrying about what foods might have too much fat or sugar, think, ‘Oh I should eat these blueberries for the antioxidants.’”

Decker eats “clean” throughout the day, “For breakfast, I usually have Greek yogurt and lots of berries or an egg-white omelet,” she tells Us Weekly.

For snacks, Decker goes nuts, “(They’re) my favorite snack,” she says. “I love nuts, I love berries, and I love hummus, so I’ll have hummus with carrots or pita. And, for me, I think snacking’s so important. When you snack, it helps maintain your metabolism throughout the day. You don’t get hungry, and you fill your body with nutrients.”

To get Decker’s bikini-ready body, you have to eat right and (gulp!) exercise, “I’m curvier and more athletic than the typical-size model, so I work out,” she explained to OK! magazine. “A lot of girls are like ‘I eat a cheeseburger, and I’m a size zero.’ Me? No way! I have to workout, and it’s part of my life and I love it. I do yoga, cardio, boxing – everything. For me, it’s about mixing things up and staying in shape.”

Yoga is one of Decker’s favorite exercises, ” I noticed it really enhanced my other workouts because I work out like an athlete,” she explains. “I go for long runs or spin classes and I do weights, which I think a lot of women are scared of. I think it’s so important to do weights, because they don’t make you bigger, they make you more lean and toned and all that good stuff.”

Decker lifts weights faithfully, “I do free weights three days a week,” she says. “I do walking lunges with a weight, then squats, then rotating twists with a plate on my chest, and then arms, too. Having more muscle means burning more calories, which is a reason guys lose weight faster than women. Lifting makes me leaner.”

And to keep your stomach as flat as Decker’s, do sit-ups—every day, “Do 10 or 15 or 20 or 50, however many you can do. Just do them. If your core is strong your back will be strong.”

Decker’s final piece of bikini advice? “The most important thing is to have a suit that covers enough and supports your boobies! At the beach, you don’t want to be vulgar, you want to feel radiant.”
