Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Most Embarrassing Moment
Monday, February 5, 2001
Freddie Prinze Jr. wants to clear something up for those moviegoers
who saw his latest film, Head Over Heels, over the weekend. The
sound effects in the scene where his character is going to the
bathroom were not — he repeats not — supplied by him.
I was ambushed," Prinze tells TV Guide Online of the noisy
potty humor. "I had no idea they were going to add all of
those sound effects. I imagined it being a bit less noisy, shall
we say. I had no reservations whatsoever when I did the scene,
but when I saw the movie it got to me."
24-year-old She's All That hottie, however, isn't mad, just a
little embarrassed. "Listen, I did a little business on the
pot and it was what it was," he laughs. "I have to say
it's a very funny scene... Can't wait for my mother to see that."
Head Over Heels, Prinze plays a fashion entrepreneur who is being
spied on by five flawless gals sharing an apartment across the
way. "It was a really difficult movie," deadpans Prinze
of working with Monica Potter, Shalom Harlow, Tomiko Fraser, Ivana
Milicevic and Sarah O'Hare. "To have to go to work and get
paid all of this money just to kiss beautiful women and have beautiful
women chase me around and spy on me — even watch me work
out. I'd appreciate more empathy... This one was tough."
joking aside, Prinze only has eyes for one woman — steady
Sarah Michelle Gellar. And although he admits he's really romantic,
he says he has no plans to celebrate Valentine's Day with the
Buffy the Vampire Slayer star. "I don't believe in Valentine's
Day and [Sarah] feels the same way," he reveals. "I
think it's kind of a crock, and here's why: I believe we should
be doing that every day — make your girl feel special whenever
you can. I'm a big big believer in surprises. You've got to be
romantic all of the time. Guys, you can hate me or whatever for
saying this, but you know what you should do."
