Actress Anna Faris and her “Overboard” co-star Eugenio Derbez shivered through ocean scenes for their new movie remake, because the weather was so cold. The actress portrays a single mother who convinces a playboy with amnesia, as played by Eugenio Derbez, that they are a married couple in the new movie, a remake of the 1987 film of the same name featuring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

Many of the scenes were filmed at sea, but the yacht shoots were far from glamorous behind the scenes. “It was cold. I never understood why (Eugenio’s) character wanted to go to the Pacific Northwest!” Anna told Collider, while Eugenio added, “It was crazy! You can’t imagine how cold it was. The wind was freezing and the water was freezing, too. Honestly, being on the yacht was not comfortable because we were not able to sit down anywhere and you’d have to be outside.”


During the interview, Anna also admitted she was anxious to take on the project, because the original “Overboard” is one of her favorite films. But after real-life couple Goldie and Kurt gave her their seal of approval over a dinner meeting, she began to feel much more confident about revamping the film.

“They just told stories about falling in love and doing the movie together and how special that was. By the end of the dinner, after some wine, they were like, ‘OK, we give our blessing. You can do the movie,’ ” the 41-year-old smiled.

The new “Overboard” also features Eva Longoria, John Hannah and Swoosie Kurtz.
