Deja Vu

22 Nov, 2006

Patton plays Claire, in this thriller directed by Tony Scott. ATF agent Douglas Carlin, who travels back in time attempts to prevent a domestic terrorist attack that takes place in New Orleans to save a woman with whom he falls in love. Co-starring Denzel Washingston and Val Kilmer.

We had talked about it. My idea of nudity, as of now, so don’t hold me to this, this is how I feel at this moment, is that if it makes sense for the film and it’s not in a sexual way… I feel like you can do sex scenes that are really sexy, without having to see nudity. But you’re doing surveillance on a woman in the shower, and we’re all going to know, if we just do it from the top up, that we’re [staged]. Then it takes away from the reality of it. I think he did it really tastefully, and for a very short period of time. Short enough that my parents won’t want to kill themselves I think that it works for the movie because you are being a voyeur in her world, and so it sort of happens that you see her like that. So I said, ‘Okay, Tony, I trust you!’”
