The night of the icy stare

Something tells me that wife on husband domestic violence in theaters is about to increase:
When Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek told Robert Towne she didn't want to do his movie,"Ask the Dust," it wasn't because of the nude scenes. It was because she didn't want to play a Mexican.
Which is why that scene has no coyly-turned-away-from-the-camera or body-hidden-by-artfully-computer-animated-mist moments: "I'm protective of actors' nudity in love scenes, but not in a scene like this, where the characters absolutely have to be naked for it to be real."

Expect Dennis York to "retire" again when this movie comes out on DVD.
