I have just finished my duties promoting The Smurfs movie. I have to say it was a lot of fun but rather more esoteric than I expected. Members of the press seem to take their amorphous, blue, animated people very seriously these days. I was actually asked at one point this morning to compare my experience working on The Smurfs with working with Stanley Kubrick on Eyes Wide Shut. And it wasn't a joke either!!
Here I am on Young Hollywood with the lovely Sofia Vergara. Both she and I were thrilled we were allowed to be on a show that had the words 'young' in its title.
And here is a song I recorded with my friend Nate. It's the old classic April Showers. I have gone a bit jazzy.
I am off to the gym in the hotel. They have one of those power plate machines that made Madonna all lean and sinewy. It sort of reminds me of those machines that fat ladies used to stand on with big rubber vibrating belts across their asses, juggling away the pounds. Oh, and please, I am wearing a kilt, not a skirt in the picture. It was a homage to Gutsy Smurf.
