John Carter of Mars film actress: “Edgar Rice Burroughs was a really smart writer ..."

Last week, the MTV Movies Blog published a piece detailing an interview with Lynn Collins, the American actress who plays the role of Dejah Thoris in the forthcoming Disney/Pixar film John Carter of Mars (2012). Here are some hilarious quotes uttered by Collins:

"I think they're going more like a really great tan, like the best-tan-you-can-ever-imagine type of thing. I've yet to find it. Maybe the makeup team will be able to."

“Taylor [actor Taylor Kitsch, who plays the role of John Carter] is so amazing. We went to Pixar and saw some of the workups of some of the fighting that we have to do. I was like, 'Oh my god, there's just no guy better for the job. He's so athletic and wonderful and such a great actor and so positive.'"

"Edgar Rice Burroughs was a really smart writer, so smart that some of the stuff I can hardly wrap my head around, so that's up to Pixar to see if they can put in visually to life.”

Luckily, she's not writing it.

Agreed, but Michael Chabon's reputation will take a hit if this film doesn't do well at the box office in 2012.

Why Tan and not, you know, like in the book?
