  • Quotes

    • Jordana: (asked if there were there any difficult challenges in filming the action sequences and stunts in "D.E.B.S.") If anything, it made me feel [totally uncoordinated]. These guys...I think at the same time they were training us for four days, they were training Milla Jovovich. So they'd be like, "Milla's really great" and "Milla trains for hours." And we're like, "I just got here!" So the second they saw us attempt the choreography, they brought in the doubles. But we did try. But it was a twenty-eight day shoot, so there wasn't really that much time at all to learn stuff.
