Angie signed on to co-star with Pierce Brosnan in the sequel to 1999's THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR (oddly enough, a remake in its on right) and quite possibly to be called The TOPKAPI AFFAIR. Director Paul Verhoeven and the other producers are insisting that if Angie is to remain on the roster, she's got to put on 28 pounds. All kidding aside, how do they come up with a number like 28 instead of the rounded 5s like 25 or 30?
The reasoning is simple. According to a source, they want her to put on the weight because, "It is going to be very physically demanding, which is why they want her to carry the extra weight. They don't want a reprise of what happened with 'WANTED,' where she was fainting and they had to take her costumes in." Yeah, I saw WANTED and wondered how they got a walking skeleton to look so badass. Again, I'm not joking.
