DL: What happened to the guy?
SH: He was on the floor running around with the bull going like this to him and he had lots of bruises and you won't believe the guy got up..
you know.. limping, all messed up and he said "OK, now you have to go out there and do it because I took this for you."
And I had to do it for him and I did a couple of passes.
DL: Did you enjoy it?
SH: No. [laughter] But I feel very brave.
DL: What kind of child.. tell us about your kind of growing up in Mexico because it sounds very .. must have been exotic, I would guess so.
SH: No, if you're Mexican it doesn't seem so exotic.
DL: Oh sure, but if you're a dorky white guy from Indiana. [laughter]
SH: It was fun. I was just a regular child. I got along. I got along with the guys very well, played soccer with them because we didn't have a female team and I also got along with..
DL: You must have been pretty good at soccer.
SH: Yes I was good.and I was also friend.. and I had a lot of girlfriends also because I was feminine but I also liked to hang out with the guys so I was popular and everything was great for me growing up until we got to the fifth grade..
because all my girlfriends started developing breasts and I was flat as a board. [laughter] I was once. All the girls would talk about.. you know.. growing up and developing and I had nothing to share with them because nothing was happening to me.
And all the boys would talk about was the girls that were being developed and I was not part of that clan so I felt so out of place and I was miserable for a little period of time.
And then one time I took a roadtrip with my mom and we went to this church that was supposed to have.. they say it did a lot of miracles and we went in.. [loud laughter] I'm not there yet. You guess the right story. I went in.
DL: You know when you're asking for a miracle, not nice to get greedy. [laughter]
DL: You we're praying for a miracle.
SH: And then we went out and I said to my mom "I forgot something". I had to go back in and I put my hands in holy water.. this is the recipe, girls... put my hands in holy water and I said "Please God, give me some breasts".. and he gave me them. [laughter]
DL: Woah that's quite a story..eh.. let's see the movie..eh.. the movie [laughter] it opens on Friday and it's one of these unusual films, isn't it? You have like 4 images on the screen the whole time.
SH: Yeah it's very cool. It's an experiment they did and of course I was one of the guinea pigs. It's one take.. it took one take 90 minutes, one whole take and there is no script. We improvised.
DL: Was that a good idea?
SH: Yes. It's a great idea.
SH: It really is. You have to see the film to have to know it.
DL: I have seen part of it. I started to watch it on the set.
SH: It's a scary idea but it's a good idea and it's completely different.
And there's 4 cameras and the screen is split into 4 cameras. There was no editing. If you miss out that's it. What you see is what you get.
DL: Does it ever get confusing because of all these images..
SH: No because Mike Figgis.. he was the director.. did a brilliant job with the sound. The sound gets louder in..
DL: That takes you to from one of the quarters to another..
SH: Exactly. But if you want to pick someboy else's line while you're listening to one you can still look.
DL: It's impressive. I think it's never been done before.
SH: It's never been done before. We're getting great reviews. I'm very excited about it.
DL: It opens in selected cities tomorrow. I hope it's very successful for you.
