Beginning this Friday, the one-week countdown for Sin City will begin. We have already gotten all the trailers, clips, and other online media we can possibly get. Now, the only thing left is interviews with characters from the film. This is a second part to interviews with the cast of Sin City. To hear from Clive Owen and Benicio Del Toro, CLICK HERE.

The Ladies of Sin City

ComingSoon was able to catch up with Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, and Brittany Murphy to get them to say a few words about the upcoming Frank Miller graphic novel adaptation Sin City. If you have already seen the behind the scenes to Sin City, and the video interviews, you can tell that this cast is pumped for this film.

Here is a little of what Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, and Brittany Murphy had to say about their involvement with Sin City:

Jessica Alba and Dawson found it refreshing to work in front of a green screen for the entire shoot. "I'm not very experienced in theater," said Alba. "The only training I really had was David Mamet's theater company, the Atlantic Theater company. And all I did was go on these little stages and imagine things, but they were in small rooms so the difference is you still had to shout and project your voice, but everything was little bit bigger and the same with Robert, it's very specific. He fine-tunes your performance so its kind of a marriage of film and theater I felt."

"It was just incredible," said Dawson. "You're standing there in this outfit, just completely naked and vulnerable to everything and this crazy dialogue. With Robert's experience - I was kind of lucky because I came out on the very last segment of shooting, so I was there three months into it and actually saw a lot of other footage, so I got the benefit of being able to look at it and go - okay, this does look really amazing, I'm just going to do whatever he tells me to do."

Alba's character, Nancy, appears completely nude in the comic book, but Alba decided to opt out for the film. "I looked at the graphic novel and all the pictures. I then found out she was a stripper and was bottomless and topless and, nudity was an option. We could have done it if we wanted to, it absolutely was an option. Robert said that we could do it if we wanted to and obviously it would have been more authentic. I just felt like dancing around with a lasso and chaps was going to be sexy enough, I think being nude, for me, would have been distracting and I really couldn't be bottomless for my dad. He would disown me and freak out."

That last comment just breaks my heart. For the entire discussion, go to ComingSoon.Net.
