5 Things We Enjoyed Seeing on the Set of ‘The Dilemma’ – Moviefone
Highlight #4: Winona Ryder Getting Some Action
‘Beetlejuice’ and ‘Heathers’ were my favorite movies in grade school and high school, respectively, so I was really stoked to see Winona Ryder in person — and in a big role, at that. Shoplifting scandal be damned, she’s an appealing actress deserving of a comeback. To be honest, ‘The Dilemma’ might not be the right vehicle, as her dialogue in the scene I witnessed was pretty stilted and her chemistry with James a bit flat. But I’m willing to grant a day pass to the actress who recently played Spock’s mother.

Towards the final hours of the production day, Jennifer Connelly (in four-inch heels, but still a good 6â€ shorter than her on-screen hubby) and Winona Ryder (short, too button-like for James) enter the set. Connelly bids us a comforting â€œHelloâ€ that causes one of us, first time seeing such a creature as tall and sexy as this, to spill his notebook on the floor. With new eye candy (and stand-ins!), itâ€™s a fresh start for the journalists–and Vaughn, evidently, who trumpets, â€œLetâ€™s do this thing!â€ before one of the takes with the ladies.

Winona Ryder has discussed the controversy surrounding The Dilemma’s negative use of the word ‘gay’ in the trailer for Ron Howard’s rom-com, after Howard insisted this weekend that the line would stay in the film.
The line “electric cars are gay” was removed from early Dilemma trailers, after the use of the word in a negative context was deemed offensive, causing outcry from gay rights groups and celebrities alike.
But Ryder told Total Film:
â€œ[The controversy] is really crazy because I know the context in the scene. I didnâ€™t even know that there was a scandal, until I went in for looping and I talked to Ron [Howard].
“You know itâ€™s just crazy because Iâ€™m very sensitive to that issue and if I thought something was offensive I wouldnâ€™t want to be a part of it. Plus all my gay friends use that word all the time!â€
The Dilemma is released in 2011
