Shireen on the Scene: Rush
I only drive automatics. "Rush" tells the story of a pair of racing rivals that push each other to their limits. Tonight, we're shifting it into high gear with the cast of the movie. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.
Chris Hemsworth plays James Hunt, the good looking live fast die young heart-throb. Daniel Bruel plays the cautious driver who nearly loses it all.
OLIVIA WILDE: "For Americans since we don't know these guys it feels like a Larry Bird, Magic Johnson kind of story."
Olivia Wilde plays the very sexy wife of bad boy James Hunt.
OLIVIA WILDE: "I think we like bad boys and girls coz we like anyone who skates danger. Who toys with their own mortality because that's something most of us are denied."
Oh, Olivia, tell me something I don't know. Back in the day two or three formula one drivers died every year.
So both James and Nicki knew they were living on the edge. Chris and Daniel quickly learned they were living on the edge while shooting "Dush."
CHRIS HEMSWORTH: "It was great the advice we were given was drive it like you stole it."
DANIEL BRUHL: "The sense of speed is so much higher if you're low to the ground. You feel the wind and the vibration going thru your body it smells of gasoline."
And it kind of distorted their sense of what's safe.
DANIEL BRUHL: "Sometimes it was 150-160kph which is still safe."
Oh yeah, people do that on 95, so if you like fast cars this is for you if you. Like Bad Boys it's for you too, right Olivia?
OLIVIA WILDE: "It's essentially a love story."
"Rush" opens Friday. On Thursday, one of the stars accuses director Ron Howard of possibly sabotaging his car.
