Monte Carlo: Sneak Peek

Best known for playing Finn Hudson in “Glee” Cory Monteith stars with Justin Bieber's girl Selena Gomez in the film “Monte Carlo”. Coming along with them are Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy from "Gossip Girl". Fresh high school graduate Grace (Selena Gomez) and best friend Emma (Katie Cassidy) have finally saved enough money to accomplish their dream vacation to Paris. The trip turns out to be a complete bummer. The two leaves their tour by ducking into a luxury hotel. Unluckily (or luckily), Grace is a complete look-alike to a British heiress Cordelia (Selena Gomez). They decide to ride along as being Cordelia but before they can reveal that Grace is not really Cordelia, the two are whisked away to Monte Carlo. Read on to find out more about "Monte Carlo".

The filmmakers believed that Cory Monteith fits the role of Owen perfectly. He’s a big, friendly, very funny and likable guy. He sells the character the instant he’s on screen,” says director Thomas Bezucha in casting Monteith. Below is an exclusive interview with Cory Monteith describing his dream girl and experiences in making Monte Carlo:

Q. What’s your character like?
A. Owen is completely in love with Katie Cassidy’s character, Emma. He’s on a journey - and he’s chasing her across Europe so he can take her home again and marry her. He can be a little misguided, but he’s incredibly romantic and prepared to do whatever it takes to win back his girl.

Q. Which of your co stars did you bond with the most quickly?
A. I think I bonded with them all straight away! Selena is very sweet. She’s really down to earth, and excellent at doing accents. We playfight like a brother and sister - she’s tiny but determined, although she has yet to hurt me! Leighton is great, and can give a solid high five. That’s a life skill.

Q. How flirty are you?
A. I’m single, and I love that life but I’m not a dog! I’m pretty goofy and I make a lot of dumb jokes - life is too short to be serious, so I guess that’s how I flirt. To be honest, I’ve never really thought about it - I think I’m too shy and reserved to be a proper old fashioned flirt.

Q. Describe your dream girl.
A. People who are passionate are attractive - if they’re excited about their life and what they’re doing, that’s really engaging. It doesn’t matter whether they’re a movie star or an accountant. As far as looks go, I don’t have any specifics. I don’t have a preference for blondes or brunettes.

Q. Do you have a celebrity crush?
A. I’ve worked with a lot of beautiful girls, but I’d have to say Amber Riley, who plays Mercedes in Glee. Have you heard her sing? She’s amazing.

Q. What will you miss most about Monte Carlo when you’ve finished filming?
A. The bread! The bread is delicious, I can get through a lot of that stuff. The way people treat each other here is very different too. There’s a kind of old world sensibility in Europe - people are refined and respectful and it’s very cool. In North America there’s a different attitude. Everything is faster and less personal.

“Monte Carlo” opens July 1, 2011 in theaters from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
