The NY Times' BOLDFACE NAMES hit on director Kevin Smith at a junket for his new movie, Jersey Girl. Ever the gentleman, Smith rebuffed the reporter's advances, confessing he left his heart--in New Jersey:
He and his wife, JENNIFER SCHWALBACH, were in Los Angeles and she was nine months pregnant, Mr. Smith said. No commercial airline would permit them to board.Note if you're gonna try this yourself: it's not enough to have Harvey on yourspeed dial; you need to be on his. Otherwise, IF YOU WANT YOUR KID TO BE BORN IN NEW JERSEY, DON'T BE IN L.A. DURING THE NINTH MONTH OF PREGNANCY. [via TMFTML]
"Her water broke, she started dilating," Mr. Smith said. "So I called Harvey Weinstein and I said, 'Dude, we're stuck in L.A., we need to get back to New Jersey so Jen can have this baby.' So he sent the jet out for us, picked us up; we went back home, had the baby. So that's somebody who went out of their way - well, she didn't - but I went out of my way to make sure my daughter was a Jersey girl."
