Actress Anna Faris still feels a little sore about mocking Cameron Diaz in Lost In Translation - because she had no idea she was lampooning the CHARLIE'S ANGELS star.
It has become fabled that writer/director Sofia Coppola was poking fun at Diaz in the film, and cast Faris as the movie star's alter-ego.
But the Scary Movie star had no idea.
She says, "That's been really hard... I auditioned, without having read the script, pretty much exactly the way I played it (character) in the movie.
"I filmed for only about a week, so I didn't get that much one-on-one time with Sofia Coppola. When the movie came out eight or nine months later and these questions started coming, I felt blindsided. I felt defensive at first... I felt so terrible about the whole thing."
Faris still cannot believe her Lost In Translation character is based on Diaz, despite the rumours: "I don't think Sofia's that vindictive"
