The sequel to the old-people action movie Red is due this summer, and Mary-Louise Parker (who plays Bruce Willis's love interest) is all done shooting her parts, she told us last night at a party for Stella McCartney's fall collection. "I did a couple of my own stunts this time," she said. "I think because I was really the worst person at drama school at stunts — I was kind of famously awful — I always want to do my own." For Red 2, that meant doing some fancy moves with furniture: "I did this thing where I kind of flew over a couch and shot someone or something," she explained. "I don’t know. Something like that." Hopefully whatever that something was catches the attention of her old drama-school teachers, who seem pretty awful: "I could never do a handspring, and I could never juggle, so they said I would never work. They were like, 'You’re not going to work until you learn how to juggle and do a handspring.'" (When was the last time you saw someone juggle onscreen, not counting Mr. Carson on The View?) As for what she learned about action from far-better teacher Bruce Willis, she said, "Bruce is really manly, so he’s always, like, pulling you to the ground when the guns are going off and, like, smothering you to protect you — which is so much sexier than rolling over a couch." So much sexier.
