July 24, 2008: "Amanda Peet At The Premiere of The X Files: I Want To Believe"
Actress Amanda Peet now understands the great lengths that "X-Files" stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson go to in their roles as paranormal investigators - especially in their upcoming film "The X-Files: I Want To Believe."
Peet takes on the role of FBI Agent Dakota Whitney and appears alongside Fox Mulder(Duchovny) during a chilly investigation.
While in the bitter cold, the two discover a frozen bathing suit that smells of chlorine, which calls them into action in search of a nearby swimming pool.
In the scene, Peet dons a big winter hat that looks a lot like the one Frances McDormand wore in "Fargo."
"It was so freezing that I wanted to look really pretty and have, like, a pretty hat. And then I realized how freezing it was," she told Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith.
Like her co-stars Duchovny and Anderson, who have been mum about their possible on-screen romance, Peet is divulging few details about the film.
"What's under that hat you don't know," Peet said. "It's like a 'Twilight Zone' episode," as she motioned antennae on her head with her hands.
"That would be the universal symbol for aliens under Frances McDormand 'Fargo' hats!" Smith said.
July 17, 2008: "Amanda Peet Apologizes For Calling Parents "Parasites""
Actress Amanda Peet is saying sorry for calling parents who are opposed to vaccinations parasites.
In a recent Cookie magazine interview, she had spoken out for vaccination and how parents are misinformed of the process.
She told the publication, "I was shocked by the amount of misinformation floating around, particularly in Hollywood. Frankly, I feel that parents who don't vaccinate their children are parasites."
The 36-year-old actress was quick to issue an apology over her own use of the offensive term.
She writes in a letter posted on Cookie:
"I believe in my heart that my use of the word 'parasites' was mean and divisive; I completely understand why it offended some parents, and in particular, parents of children with autism who feel that vaccines caused their illness."
"For this I am truly sorry."
Nonetheless, Peet still continues to defend her stance about vaccination.
She continues, "I still believe that the decision not to vaccinate our children bodes for a dangerous future. Vast reduction in immunization will lead to a resurgence of deadly viruses."
Peet, who has a 1-year-old daughter named Frances Pen, will next be seen in the sci-fi film adaptation of "The X-Files: I Want to Believe," opposite Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.
