No Body Doubles, Says 'Chicago' Director
Wed February 5, 2003 05:09 AM ET
LONDON (Reuters) - Forget body doubles -- the stars of critically acclaimed film musical "Chicago" did all their own singing and dancing.

"I'm so proud of that," the film's director Rob Marshall told Sky News Wednesday.

"Richard Gere does this big tap dance and he had never tapped before," Marshall said. "Those are his feet. The close-ups on his feet are all him."

And Marshall offered hope to women all round the world who wondered how Hollywood stars Renee Zellwegger and Catherine Zeta-Jones could look so glamorous on the silver screen.

"You see these women at the premieres and it's like 'Oh My Gosh, they are beautiful,"' Marshall said.

But he used to tease the stars of the movie when they turned up for filming: "They'll kill me. I always made fun of them because they looked like two old ladies coming into work. They had these baggy pants on."
