Bogdanovich about Cher

Here's an excerpt from an interview with Bogdanovich in yesterday's San Francisco Chronicle .. Pink Pages ...

Q: You directed another singing diva, Cher, in "Mask."

Bogdanovich: Cher was not so much fun. [earlier he talked about Barbra Streisand being fun to work with] It was like pulling teeth. I had to resort to long close-ups, because she couldn't sustain a scene for more than a few moments ... She's great in close-up because she has all the suffering in the world in her eyes -- until you find out it's self-pity.

Eow! What a comment.
