Closer vs Closer

The adorable and beautiful Anna Friel, who most will know from Pushing Daisies, talked to Esquire about playing the Alice role in the Broadway version of Closer.

ESQ: And in the Broadway version of Closer, you played the part that Natalie Portman played in the film. Did you do that dance?

AF: Oh, my God, ours was like ten times more controversial. I had to balance on a seat like this. [Leans back.] And my legs were up, and I had a man sitting with his head all up in the middle of me. It was very daring. People would slam their seats up and storm out of the theater. And we’d get people in little brown macs [trench coats]. “Oh, he’s here again, is he?”

I knew I should have bought some different colour trench coats.
