Sophia Bush: Ocean Drive Magazine
Sophia Bush is featured in the March 2007 issue of Ocean Drive Magazine! Sophia, 24, opens up about working with co-star Sean Bean in her latest thriller/slasher The Hitcher, which opened in January. She also touches upon what she admires most in other people — things her ex-husband probably lacked.
How was working with Sean Bean? Did he teach you any Sheffield slang? I love Sean Bean. I just love him. We kept our distance at the beginning, because I was supposed to be afraid of him, so I didn’t want to become too close too fast. So instead of doing the typical thing, where the actors all go to dinner to get to know each other, we just let the relationship develop very slowly, almost at a distance. But I was immediately impressed because he’s so well-mannered and intelligent. And he’s very thoughtful—I mean, everything he says is cultured and meaningful. So the first time I heard him say, ‘F***,’ I laughed so much I thought I’d die from lack of oxygen.
You’d be okay, then. Finally, a couple of character questions: First, which quality do you value most in other people? Loyalty and honesty mean the most to me. When that’s a priority for you, the things that come out of your mouth are genuine and meaningful, and the way you treat people and think about them is genuine. I’m not a calculating person and I’m not really used to being around those kinds of people, and I’ve been bitten because of it. So I really enjoy being around honest, loyal people.
Sounds like that last question was aimed at ex-hubby Chad Michael Murray! Ahem. You can read the full Sophia Bush Ocean Drive interview here.
