You've probably already read this: "When I recently visited the set of one of 2009s most anticipated movies, Watchmen, I saw many amazing things that I unfortunately still cant talk about. One of the people who wasnt there, however, was the stunningly sexy Carla Gugino so when I caught up with her on the red carpet at Sundays SAG Awards, we were naturally both excited to engage in some red-hot, non-embargoed Sally Jupiter action. It was really one of the craziest, most fun roles Ive ever gotten to play, marveled the Sin City star, cast as the burlesque dancer who proves to be the most PR-savvy of the complex superheroes. I start at 25 years old in the 1940s, and I age to 67 years old with full prosthetics in the 1980s. [Sally] is a larger-than-life character. Shes a costumed crime fighter, but her idea of a costume is very Bettie Page-meets-[Alberto] Vargas. As those whove read Alan Moores beloved 1986 comic know, Guginos character dubs herself The Silk Spectre and becomes a de facto matriarch among the alternate-reality antiheroes. Years later, shed pass the torch to daughter Laurie (The Heartbreak Kid star Malin Akerman) and retire but not until after she might have been raped by another so-called hero. The rape scene is pretty crazy that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and I have, Gugino insisted. Not that I would say thats the one I really want you guys to see. The title sequence of this movie is going to be extraordinary. We spent many weeks over the time of the shoot shooting it. Thats going to be a very, very special thing that wasnt scripted, that will be really empowering. In those opening credits, Snyder is mixing CGI and real-life footage to establish the close-but-not-quite reality of a Watchmen world that mirrors our own. It incorporates real history and the fictitious world of Watchmen, and so its very cool, Gugino explained. We meet Nixon and all sorts of people. And once those credits conclude, Gugino gets to squeeze into a famously skimpy costume and re-create the characters superhero heyday. I kick a small amount of ass. I dont kick as much ass as some people do in the movie, however, she sighed. But I get to play an old lady, which was just, for me, the most fascinating thing. To start as this young crime fighter and end up an alcoholic woman in her late 60s was for me enough of a challenge; lets put it that way. The actress also got to don Sallys trademark hairdo, albeit a slightly more plausible version. We did our own take on the poodle [haircut]. Its not quite as poodle-y, though its an homage to the poodle, Gugino laughed. I wear red wigs; Ive been in many hairdos this year, on many things. Sometimes I have to look in the mirror to remember which character Im playing. On March 6, 2009, however, it seems quite likely that Gugino and many of her co-stars will be appearing in the most unforgettable roles of their careers. It was really great, she remembered of the Canadian shoot. The cast is extraordinary; we all really bonded with each other. [Director] Zack Snyder has such a very strong and clear vision for this piece. Pretty heavy stuff.
