Rent check: Alan Cumming

The ”Eyes Wide Shut” actor spills his video rental recommendation

Posted on

Stepmom [1998, Columbia TriStar, 120 mins., PG-13]. I like both those actresses [Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts] and I had heard it was a good ol’ tearjerker. I enjoyed it but was glad they didn’t do some giant dragged-out death scene. I kept thinking, ‘Oh, dear God, please don’t let her die in the bed in front of the kids.’ I would have really lost it then.” — Alan Cumming (Eyes Wide Shut)
