Well, I actually got off pretty lightly with the special effects in the movie. John Cusack and Amanda Peet took the real brunt of it. But I did a little water work in the film and that was -- I thought it was fine; I actually had a really good time! It was strange; I kind of wish I had done more.
It was just a really great time, a really fun set to be on. And, you know, I got to work with actors that I really adore and that I've always wanted to work with. John Cusack and Oliver Platt, and Danny Glover, and I didn't get to work so much with Woody Harrelson but, you know, I was glad he was around. And I'd worked with Thandie before -- Thandie Newton -- and that was great, to work with her again. And Amanda Peet. You know, it was a great group of people to be around. I had a fantastic time.
I did. I mean, I didn't know much about it beforehand. I knew about the prophecy a bit, about the Mayan calendar and then the date -- 2012 -- but that was it. You know, I looked up a lot of stuff about the Mayan prophecy and Nostradamus and the connection with the dates with that, and that got me a little bit paranoid, actually. But, on the whole, I felt kind of okay about it. You know, there are different ways of interpreting the Mayan calendar, and one way is the end of days -- the apocalypse. And the other way -- well one of the other ways -- is this kind of new beginning, a change in consciousness. You know, somehow starting something afresh. So, you know, maybe we'll experience that instead, let's hope!
