Hilary Duff is L.A. Confidential

Hilary Duff is L.A. Confidential

Hilary Duff and John Cusack promote their new politically charged movie, War, Inc., in the latest of Los Angeles Confidential.

In the Joshua Seftel-directed film, The Duffster plays potty-mouthed Eastern European pop star Yonica Babiak. Here’s what Hil had to say to the mag:

Your character speaks in a ridiculous dialect. Where did that come from? The first time I talked to John, he said, “You know, you have to have an accent.” The character is an Eastern European pop star. I didn’t even know where to begin. But the fun thing is, this place doesn’t even exist. Turaqistan is not a real country. So I played around and mixed a lot of things together! I talked in that accent as much as I could, even to my family and friends!

Did you really drop a live scorpion down your pants in the movie? I really did. It was so scary. I grew up in Texas, and we had plenty of scorpions, but I never had to put one down my pants before. And my pants weren’t that baggy, so I couldn’t get any space. I did it a couple times with it going down my leg and it was terrifying. The little thing kept doing backbends because it obviously didn’t want to go in my pants, you know? Everyone on the set was cheering!

  • gywinnies gay pal

    I was a huge John Cusack fan until he chose to work with the Texas nitwit Hillary Duff. What a way to ruin your career and what sounded like an interesting movie. I will never see anything involving Hillary Duff.

    Hil looks good here but this is a bad photo. They shouldn’t put her on a box to be the height of John. It looks awkward. Her knees are at his thighs.
