"I'm eating while talking to you," she says in that famous throaty contralto that long ago made her the Goddess of Pop. An intriguing blend of Armenian-American and Cherokee, she's also extremely adept at staying in the game.
Her reign as an undisputed diva is among the longest in show business.
In the 90s, Stoltz re-invented himself, emerging as a capricious dramatic actor that seemed intent on swimming in the choppiest waters possible. I walked across the street, and he was like â€˜Hey man, I was just thinking about you – I’ve got this script I want to give you’.
One thing’s for sure, it would’ve been harder to picture him as tussle-haired drug lord, Lance – that’s for sure. That’s great – getting behind the scenes there I started a couple of years ago. I’ve been working on a short film called The Grand Design, starring Frances Conroy, about a mother and son looking for meaning in the world. Short films aren’t going to advance anyone’s career, after all. Because on the next film, Pauly Shore will enter your trailer with a Milkshake [Laughs] Yes, that’s an attractive production assistant. The first thing I directed was a movie for cable starring Mimi Rogers and Allison Mack, and then I did an episode of a show called Once and Again – which is sort of infamous because it was the episode where Mischa Barton kissed Evan Rachel Wood, I got to direct that…fraught, sexual moment [Laughs]. I remember that film as being more of a bonding highschool experience than my actual highschool was. I’m able to jettison negative experiences and most of my film past actually [Laughs]. Yeah, and I think I like to enjoy where I am right now. They said â€˜You’re going to cut your hair, and we’ll clean you up’. Is it true you suggested Lea Thompson for the role of Amanda Jones? After the purge of the cast, I brought her the script. Thank god there was no “Back to the Future” for you man, because it would’ve been disgusting seeing you making-out with your mother on screen! It’s a little weird anyway – the guy having his mother come onto him.
Calling Crispin Glover an "odd duck," but "a genius," Thompson reminisces about her co-star and how much he disliked the ending of the film.
"He was like, 'what, we're so much better because we're now richer and we play tennis?
Character: Lance "The day that I bring an OD-ing b*tch over to your house, then I give her the shot" 1994 saw Eric Stoltz appear in both Pulp Fiction and cult favourite Killing Zoe.
Since then, the actor has starred in sporadic film hits (Rob Roy in 1996, Jerry Maguire in 1996, The Rules of Attraction in 2002) and a wide range of small screen output, including Will & Grace, Grey's Anatomy and Glee – the latter two of which he has directed multiple episodes.
