ON IN TROY, AND I WORKED SO LATE THAT IT DIDN’T HAVE TIME TO
SHOWER AND TAKE IT ALL OFF. SO THEY SENT A HAIR DRESSER IN
THE PLANE WITH A DRESS I NEVER TRIED ON, TWO SIZES TOO BIG, AND
MY HAIR LOOKED LIKE IT WAS GLUED TO MY HEAD BECAUSE THAT’S ALL HE
COULD DO WITH GLUE FROM THE WIG. I WAS SUPER LATE, EVERYBODY IS
FREEBLGING OUT. THEY PICKED ME UP AT THE
AIRPORT, DID MY MAKEUP IN THE CAR, PUT ME IN THE DRESS, AND
THEY SAID, HERE’S DIANE KRUEGER, AND APPLAUSE, AND MY AGENT STEPS
ON MY DRESS AND I FALL FLAT FACE FIRST IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY.>>Stephen: BEFORE OR AFTER

JUST LISTENS.>>YES.>>Stephen: YOU HAVE TO FIND A
MAN WHO’S LIKE A TENNIS BALL.>>TELL ME ABOUT IT. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: IN THE MOVIE STEVE CARELL’S CHARACTER SUFFERS A
TERRIBLE ATTACK AND HE’S AN ARTIST WHO CAN NO LONGER DRAW
AND HE RECOVERS AND FINDS HIS ARARTISTRY BY CREATING A TOWN WI
THESE DOLLS. WHO ARE YOU?>>I PLAY THE BELGIAN WITCH OF
