my quote is "nine" is a ten. it's director is rob marshall. how did you assemble in cast? >> oh, gosh. i guess piece by piece. i never would have imagine we would have this cast. this is a dream cast for me. every single one of them. it was joyous to work with them every day. >> larry: who was the hardest to get? >> the man in the middle. >> larry: did you resist it, daniel? >> you can't resist him. he is irresistible. >> larry: did you like this from the get-go? >> yes. it wasn't -- at the time it was when he found me we had just finished -- my wife just finished making a film in the states. it wasn't a good moment for me to transplant everyone somewhere else. >> larry: so why did you succumb? >> him. and these lovely ladies. >> larry: and the script. kate, how did they get you?
>> i auditioned for rob. i sang first and it was kind of old school. i sang and i got a call back. and i danced and then i got another call back. and i sang and i danced and i got another call back. it was a process. >> larry: did you think you would get it? >> to be honest i just wanted to sing and dance for rob. of course, i hoped that i would be able to be part of such an incredible film. i was more just trying -- >> larry: you got it. fergie, how did they get you? >> i auditioned as well. everyone else had been cast. >> larry: last one? >> yeah. i was the last one. i wanted it so badly and i came in and i did my makeup. i contoured my nose. i had this big burmp on my nose and tried to make everything
look bigger. >> larry: everything? >> everything, larry. and, yeah. and a few weeks went by and i was hoping, hoping. every day i would think about it. i basically gave up on it. i let it go. i would have heard by now. i guess i didn't get it. about a week later i got a call from harvey, and i screamed. >> larry: harvey weinstein. nicole, how did they get you for "nine"? >> rob told me -- i think we had lunch or coffee or something and he said anthony magilla had written the role for me. >> larry: he wrote it for you? >> yeah. >> larry: you had to. >> i had to because i wanted to work with rob and anthony was one of my dearest friends. >> larry: marion, how did they get you? >> i auditioned, too. >> larry: you had to audition. >> first audition was singing. >> for judi's role. >> yeah. it was for judi's role actually.
i sang claudia's song. >> exactly. we cast -- we were casting before we started writing so we weren't sure exactly who was going to play what. >> lilli is french. >> we thought maybe that. >> larry: the star had to audition? >> i didn't know she had to sing or dance. >> it was such before. >> larry: wait a minute. kate auditioned. >> they wouldn't have, but i didn't know if they could sing or dance. nicole did not because i knew her work. judi i didn't addition either. >> larry: penelope, how did you come to "nine"? >> i auditioned for three different parts. my first meeting with rob was 2 1/2 years ago. i knew i wanted to be part of this movie. i said to him i don't care which character. have me on the set cleaning the floors just to learn because i admired him so much.
he called me and said i decided i want you to be carla. >> larry: judi, do you have to say dame? >> no. you don't have to say dame. it is a bone of contention because nicole was asked to have lunch and to do the part. i was just asked to have a coffee. but, you see, same magic. how can you resist him? >> larry: glad you did it? >> oh, you bet. i'm resentful i'm not in all the other dances. >> larry: sophia in geneva, how did you get to do "nine"? how did you come to do the part? >> well, i got a phone call from rob marshall. one phone call and i said yes right away. it is very short, my story. but, no, no, no. there is also another reason.
is that the film was involved of course the life of fellini. many times, of course, before he died i was very, very close to do a film with him but as it happens in films, it never happened. so i was very happy to be involved in the life of fellini and beside the phone call from rob, which i adore, it's because i was very moved to be closer to my dearest friend fellini, which i think is the best -- he was the best director in town in the world you know. >> larry: great story. we are just getting started with the cast of "nine." much more right after the break.
>> i thank god he's dead. >> comes to the showdown. >> don't mind him. he used to be an irishman. >> larry: that was daniel day-lewis before he became guido in "nine." we will show you star turns from each of our guests in the hour. did you know you could sing? >> i certainly didn't. i don't think he did either. he managed to convince me he knew that. but i think i insisted on at least trying to sing. >> yes. i think you were one to audition himself. >> it was hopeless, larry, and he still managed -- >> no. it was beautiful. >> larry: what was it like as a distinguished actor, many consider you the best actor in the world today. what was it like to sing? >> i don't -- i think maybe we all secretly hope we have a voice in us that one day somebody will help us to discover. it always looks when, you know,
when you see somebody expressing themselves through music it looks as though it must be so satisfying. >> larry: was it? >> yes. with all the frustrations you go through beforehand, but very, very -- >> larry: fergie, how good was he? >> he did a great job. he was spectacular. he was the first person i met on set flying and being intimidated walking on to the set and the first person i see is daniel. great. rob, 15 minutes later pulls me over to the piano and says why don't you just sing along. we'll do a piano version right here. daniel is singing right there in the corner. i'm going, okay. those fears had to go out the window really quick. they did. everyone here is very down to earth. i find the more people who are very successful and talented at what they do tend to be the nicest because they are not trying to prove anything to you. it made it very comfortable. >> larry: were you at all, rob, intimidated by daniel day? >> i was thrilled.
i was thrilled to work with the greatest actor in the world. >> i agree. >> every day for me was thrilling. imagine the call sheet, larry. daniel day-lewis in a scene with judi dench and nicole kidman and penelope cruz. >> larry: were you able to say to these stars, no, let's do it that way? >> yes. >> well, i think of it as a collaboration in a way. i never feel like i'm instructing them to do certain things. i feel like it is something we are creating together. these are the best in the world because they work so hard. it's not because there is some magic thing that happens. it is because of the work ethic. >> larry: was it nervous for you, kate? >> i was thrilled. i was, you know, nervous when i heard the song for the first time because it was very challenging, it is a very
challenging song and i got intimidated by the actual song that they wrote. but the thing about rob is that he provides this amazing, you know, sort of safety net around you so you -- it helps you build your confidence that i think in order to be able to perform those things when it is not your everyday, you know -- >> larry: it's not? >> no. >> larry: marion, this is a very different kind of musical. did you enjoy doing it? >> it was my dream to do a musical, an american musical. to have the opportunity to do one with rob was magical, really. and i more than enjoyed working with all these amazing gifted people. >> larry: you are not bad yourself. >> sorry? >> larry: you're not bad yourself. >> yeah. >> well, thank you.
and rob's team, john deluca and all the dancers and paul begave. he was our singing guide. >> larry: a couple of st transformed themselves for the film. back in 60 seconds with the cast of "nine." ughout our lives, we encounter new opportunities. at the hartford, we help you pursue them with confidence. by preparing you for tomorrow. while protecting what you have today. you've counted on us for 200 years. let's embrace tomorrow. and with the hartford behind you, achieve what's ahead of you.
the character played by penelope cruz is his mistress. >> that is not what i meant. where are you going to? >> i have to go to work. i can't breathe. >> let me come with you. >> it is impossible. >> why? >> it is impossible. >> why is it impossible? everybody knows about me. why, why won't you let me near you? >> it is not fair to your husband. it is not fair to my wife. >> please let me come with you. >> no. >> i'll be waiting for you with my legs open. >> larry: you like doing love scenes penelope? >> what. >> larry: you like doing love scenes. >> no. >> larry: no? >> it's always a very strange thing. i mean, we had the best director and i was in the best possible company but it's always something strange, right? daniel?
( sneezing ) i didn't take zicam cold remedy... but i did. zicam reduces the duration of a cold. ( sneezing ) no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no... can you do it by 3:00 ? yes, i can. how about 2:00 ? hmm... ( sneezing ) ( moaning ) get over your cold faster. now try new throat-soothing liqui-loz and great-tasting zavors.
>> i pulled the trigger. >> nothing more. >> perhaps we might take a walk. >> larry: nicole, is a musical harder to do? >> no. no. i don't think so. >> larry: even though you prerecord the music and have to lip sync over it. >> yeah. except as an actress that is what you want to do. you want to do it all. have a chance to sing and act and dance. that's what they used to do. >> larry: you had the chance in "moulin rouge." let's take a look at nicole and daniel. she plays guido's muse. see why she's so important to him in "nine."
>> muses the incredible women who have made italy what it is today. a country run by men themselves run by women whether they know it or not. >> so i am the women behind the great men? >> the great women. in a way, yes. >> the muses, they fall in love with the man? >> exactly. they fall in love with them. >> i'd rather be the man. >> what? >> i'd rather be the man. >> larry: what it's like to work with this cast? >> wonderful. i mean, it was one of these things -- >> larry: you are all stars. was there a diva issue or are you all workers? >> i think when you get to, as fergie said when you get a place in your career everyone is there because they are hard workers. wouldn't you agree with that? >> yes.
>> we love what we do and the craft of it. >> larry: do you like musical, judi? >> yes, i love them. i loved being in a musical on stage when an orchestra starts and you suddenly hear all that music and it is a huge support. all you have to do is get on and do your bit. >> larry: sophia, have you seen the finished product? >> no. i've not seen the film because i have in mind to see the film with my children. i want to enjoy the whole film with my children because this film is very important to me because being italian i've always wanted to be in a musical and now that i have this chance, even though my role is camille, i think it is a good start. while the shooting i enjoyed every moment of it. so i want to see it finished and
i want to see it with my family. >> larry: you will love it. what was she like to direct, rob? >> oh, my god. i mean, that is almost impossible to explain for me. there was a sequence i remember very clearly shooting in rome with daniel and sophia in a little italian sports car and everything is set in the '60s. there is sophia in a '60s italian sports car. i thought i died and gone to heaven. i couldn't quite believe i was there. this kid from pittsburgh is there directing this iconic major actor and daniel, i couldn't believe it. >> larry: what was it like for you, daniel, to work with one of the grand dames? >> i shall treasure it forever. every single moment i spent with that wonderful woman i will treasure it. we would go around in circles pretty much all day long. and a huge crowd turned out to see sophia.
she turned to me at one point and said all these people think that the reason we're doing it again and again is because we are so stupid that we just can't get it right. [ speaking italian ] >> larry: do you ever get used, penelope, doing it again and again? let's do another take? let's do another take. >> i always get thrown out of the set asking for too many takes. >> larry: you like takes? >> i have a problem with that. i cannot let go. okay, now we can stop and move to the next thing. >> we had to call security. >> i drive everybody crazy. i always want to do one more. >> larry: penelope's sexy rope dance. she suffered for her art. we'll talk about if ahead.
♪ chest came back- i knew i had to see my doctor. he told me i had choices in controller medicines. we chose symbicort. symbicort starts to improve my lung function within 15 minutes. that's important to me because i know the two medicines in symbicort are beginning to treat my symptoms and helping me take control of my asthma. and that makes symbicort a good choice for me. symbicort will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. and should not be taken more than twice a day. symbicort contains formoterol. medicines like formoterol may increase the chance of asthma-related death. so, it is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on other asthma medicines. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. i know symbicort won't replace a rescue inhaler. within 15 minutes symbicort starts to improve my lung function and begins to treat my symptoms. that makes symbicort a good choice for me. you have choices. ask your doctor if symbicort is right for you. (announcer) if you cannot afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.
>> larry: of course, one of the great screen performances ever. did you know you were going to win? >> i didn't want to think about it. i really tried to stay in the present time all this -- sorry. >> larry: when you are sitting there. >> all the way long. >> larry: opening the envelope? >> no. it was two or three months of amazing adventure, amazing meetings with people i admire so much and the way in america you share movies with actors. we don't do that in france. you have to talk about your work with people who know what you are talking about. it was -- it was so amazing that i really wanted to keep it out of the fantasy, out of thinking, oh, if this happens, if that happens.
so i really am being nominated with cate blanchett was something huge for me. so i really wanted to enjoy the present time and to enjoy it you don't have to think about what could happen. >> larry: well said. penelope, that dance that we showed. >> mm-hmm. >> larry: what was that like to do? >> it was amazing. amazing to learn it from them and to be able to train for three months. i had until i showed it. and to see how every day you can get a little farther and the feeling of freedom you get when you get to do the entire number without stopping. it's been a great experience for me. >> larry: you think that is the biggest turn on moment of the movie? >> oh, gosh. i think all these -- i think penelope is -- >> larry: there are many sexy scenes but that's --
>> that is a particularly sexy scene. all these ladies have their moments of beauty and sex in this film. every single one of them. >> larry: fergie, did you all get along? >> larry: come on. >> oh, yeah. i'm serious. we would have lunch together. i didn't know what to expect coming on with all those academy award winners and nominees. >> larry: you are a grammy winner. >> exactly. i got to have something. but i didn't know what to expect. i didn't know if i was going to sit in a corner and let everybody do their thing. >> fergie attacked this like an actor. >> yeah. we all got along really well. >> we had fun. >> we had a good time. >> it is very exciting doing a musical. it is a joyous experience. this is a tough musical, more sophisticated in a way and sort of tread some different
territory, but there is a joy to making musicals. the dancers are spectacular to be around. the discipline, amazing. >> larry: you grew up in show business, kate. >> yeah. >> larry: has your mother seen it yet? >> no. she is my date to the premiere. i'm really excited about that. this movie for the first time i feel like -- my mom was a dancer. that's how she started her career. for me to work with rob for my generation, the choreographer to look up to, for me to have that connection with my mother and be able to bring her to the movie tonight, it's kind of -- it's pretty amazing. >> larry: are you a good dancer, rob? >> i was a dancer. >> he is amazing. >> reporter: a lot of great choreographers are not great dancers. >> john deluca and i are dancers. we started in the chorus and
ensemble. there we were. >> almost everything in the film rob can dance it. >> he can do my routine way better than i can. >> the only way i can choreograph is do it and feel it and try it. >> larry: as we go to break, a look at kate hudson's greatest hits. >> it's me. ♪ >> i'm going to make you wish you were dead. >> my hair's blue. it's blue! ♪

>> larry: we're back. "nine" opens in los angeles and new york friday night. and then we'll open wide on christmas day. it is a great movie. fergie worked hard for this part. she plays a prostitute from guido's past and sings "nine"'s signature song you may be singing when you see the movie. here is fergie in action. ♪ the italian ♪ lives today as if it may become your last ♪ >> larry: you can applaud. >> we were trying to decide what pose would be the grand ending pose. >> we came up with 100. >> rob was getting on the chair
and doing these different ones. >> larry: she is a singer, right? >> it was amazing to see her come from that side. the challenge was huge for her. everybody has a huge mountain to climb. hers was different. i was so impressed every day with how fergie attacked to role like an animal. she wanted to feel it. she wanted to believe it. >> yeah. >> the first day of shootage was the black and white footage. >> really? >> it was the first day of filming. it was freezing cold water. you were in there and you wouldn't leave. >> the realist scenes. it is interesting for me because the song is so big and, you know, performing when you have dance moves is projecting, be extroverted but on the reality side of the film it was so much fun to go inside and be still and keep it about the thoughts, what i'm seeing and about the reality of the situation with
guido and her relationship with him and how that all works and how that started, that spark in his brain of that naughty, naughty, all those naughty thoughts that guido has. looking at daniel day-lewis, i have to basically look at him as a child. that was kind of weird for me. i let him do his thing and stayed away. it is awkward looking at that guy as an 8-year-old. >> larry: daniel, did you like guido? >> i don't think i -- i didn't like or dislike him. i didn't really look at him in that way. i didn't relate to him as a separate being i suppose? >> larry: you became him? >> i kidded him.
>> larry: what is he like to work with, nicole? >> oh, very difficult. >> larry: finally we are getting somewhere. >> he lifts your game. i think that's the thing. when you are working with somebody like daniel it makes you want to be better. >> larry: judi, what was it like for you with him? >> we go back a long way. i was his mother 20 years ago in "hamlet." >> larry: on the stage in london? >> yes. the national. the thing about daniel is you are meant to be, you come to -- you are meant to be doing a scene with this person. this person is not daniel. this person is standing in front of you. it is an all-embracing thing. daniel's way of working doesn't exclude you. it includes you. >> larry: how good a hamlet was he? >> oh, he was wonderful. >> larry: that is the hardest
role in theater, isn't it? >> i don't think you can get harder than that. >> i sent her a note when we started "nine" saying i promise not to run out on you this time. >> larry: we will be back and check in with sophia. back with the cast of "nine" in 60 seconds. here is a look at penelope cruz and some of her acclaimed performances. we've got a lot of them. >> open your eyes. >> you are in trouble. >> they said i was a genius, right? ♪ >> you're too damaged. >> and you love that.
