‘Sideways’ pours on juice

Pic's Madsen sidelined by wine

Virginia Madsen talked about the perils of on set wine consumption during Monday’s Variety Screening Series showing of “Sideways” at the ArcLight.

Despite the warnings of co-stars, the thesp indulged in a suspicious spirit, then spent “several hours in my hotel room after that quite ill,” Madsen said, “and my teeth were like dyed purple. So I had this horrible panic moment that maybe I was going to get fired because of my teeth. So I snuck back to Los Angeles and had my teeth whitened. I tried the cherry juice after that.”

Producer Michael London raved about Fox Searchlight’s hands-off approach to production. “They not only don’t call,” he deadpanned, “they don’t call back.”

Sesh was moderated by Pete Hammond.
