Scoring high at the box office this weekend was “Obsessed,” the stalker movie starring Ali Larter as a delusional office temp who goes after Beyonce’s man. Don’t worry. Beyonce’s character beats the crap out of Larter’s character.
Of the girl-on-girl fight scene, Beyonce says, “I had so much fun, because I’m a lover … I’m not a fighter. But I got to fight!”
As for Larter, it was important to play the character as realistically as possible. “You never want to play crazy,” said the “Heroes” star. “You have to play from a place of love. You have to believe that what she’s doing in her head is completely rational. Even though it may seem crazy to the outside world, to her she’s falling in love with this man and he’s giving her signals.”
In theaters today is “Obsessed,” a stalker movie not unlike the classic “Fatal Attraction.” Check out my preview of “Obsessed” here, and watch the two clips below. Note that Beyonce Knowles is an executive producer on the film, and trust me, you do NOT want to mess with her character! She’s not the type of girl who’s ready to sit back and let her man be stolen by a stalker.
