Quotes (9)

  • Mae: (On her experience working on the film Scott Pilgrim vs the World) I loved Edgar Wright's movies so much, before I knew him, and Michael Cera is one of my best friends, so I was excited to work with him and I was just excited to be a part of it. But, I had no idea that it would be a big thing. Going to Comic-Con, where it's the exact target audience, it was probably misleading because everybody loves comic books there, but it was pretty wild. Comic-Con was amazing. The film was really well received, and I'm really proud of it. I think Edgar, and everybody who worked on it, did an amazing job.

  • Mae: (talking about Alex Linz) Well, if he drank caffeinne, he would be able to walk up walls. We had fun and teased each other. I had no idea what a paramecium was, and he told me.

  • Mae: (talking about why she took on her movie One Fine Day) When I did the screen test, I got ice cream. I think it was a sundae.

  • Mae: (talking about beating her mom out for the Tyson's Chicken commercial) No. She was surprised though. Now she does voice-overs for cartoons. We just did a Superman cartoon together. I was young Lois Lane in a flashback when her pet monkey gets shot into space. In my favorite part, I said, "Why can't Lucy go into space?" Lucy was my little sister in the cartoon, and I wanted to send her into space instead of my monkey.

  • Mae: (talking about the aliens from her film Independence Day) Aliens were big and ugly- I thought they were cool!

  • Mae Whitman: Yes! Boys are all weird. Every one of them is weird. Yuck!

  • Mae Whitman: (talking about kittens in her movie One Fine Day) I am a kitten lover! And one of the reasons I liked doing One Fine Day was because they had lots of kittens. I got to carry little, tiny baby kittens all over New York.

  • Mae Whitman: (talking about George Clooney) He's a very good kidder and pulls pranks. Like in One Fine Day, they had this fake kitten that cost $7,000. Sometimes George would say, "Toss me that kitten," while people were watching. I would throw it too short, and it would land on the ground. People would be horrified because it looked real. It was really funny.
