Funniest/craziest thing that has happened on set?
When I was working on White House down, I was so excited to meet Channing Tatum! I walk out of my trailer and there he was walking towards me it was like he was moving in slow motion with music playing in the background. Then when he got to me, he said hi I am such a fan of yours and I almost passed out!
Finish this sentence: If you want to spoil me rotten…
