Hoping to garner at least a trickle of attention for her new movie Captivity, which is her being tortured for 90 minutes or so, Elisha Cuthbert recounts the time she was hit by a car and almost died. In a blonde moment, the actress once made the mistake of walking across the street when the other side had the green. She managed to avoid one car, but not a Mercedes whose driver most likely recognized her from House of Wax. Elisha says,
“So all of a sudden you freeze and think to yourself, `Can I outrun it? No. Am I going to break my legs? Probably.’ And what do I do? This is so cool of me because you realize the kind of person you are. I leaped up onto the car and I bounced and I flew all the way across the intersection. And I land right on my butt in the middle of the intersection. ‘Am I dead? No I’m not dead. Do I have any bones broken? No. Purse still intact.'”
So, one question remains. Is Elisha as dumb as her movie? I’m gonna go out on a limb and say yes. The tricky part is figuring out which one is dumber. I hear Captivity can solve a Rubik’s Cube in 2 minutes.
