THE COMMENTS:

CAMERON DIAZ (Natalie):
“The great thing about Charlie’s Angels is that they’re empowered women – they’re totally capable. They are free, open and sexy, and they allow themselves to be who they are.”

DREW BARRYMORE (Dylan):
“And it’s so much fun to be that capable and that confident, and yet show how imperfect they are and how flawed and human in their personal lives. That’s the kind of balance and the tone that’s so important to us.”

BERNIE MAC (Bosley) on taking over Bill Murray’s role in the film:
“That was scary. I didn’t see the first movie, but after I met with McG, I went home and I asked my wife, ‘Have we got Charlie’s Angels?’ I watched it three times, because I wanted to see how Bill Murray played it, and I said to myself, ‘I so can do this.’”

BARRYMORE on doing a stunt on the hood of a car when her harness broke:
: “I wanted to do the craziest thing I’ve ever done so that it worked for the film. When I was on the hood of the car, fishtailing at 40 miles an hour down the bridge, the harness came off and I was actually holding onto the car for real. The guy stopped and I slid down. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I wasn’t meant to die or get injured.’ But there was no reason for that not to happen. I was so freaked out by it happening, and it was only the first week of shooting, and I thought, ‘I really can’t get scared now. Dylan would not be scared.’ So I got right back on, switched my harness and did another run.”

LIU on catching fire in a scene:
“We were in a scene as welders, and I was eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and I felt really hot. One of the sparks had landed on my handkerchief and it had caught fire. They played it over and over for the rest of the movie. I’d come back on the set from changing my wardrobe, and you’d see everybody piled around the video monitor laughing, and I’d hear my voice screaming, ‘Oh my God, I’m on fire!’ It’s in the end credits, and it’s hilarious.”

DIAZ:
“I would say this film is different than the first one in that it is a little bit curved off of the big video feeling, it’s a little darker and grittier, but the comedy is more present throughout. It’s big, bright and colorful.”
