Mumba Doesn’t Compare Role To Britney Or Mandy Films
March 8, 2002 – Lynn Barker of Teen Hollywood spoke with Samantha Mumba ahead of ‘The Time Machine’ release today. When asked if she’s seen the films by other pop artists like Britney Spears or Mandy Moore, Mumba said, “No because I just came to the states and they weren’t out in Ireland. I wouldn’t compare any of the roles. They are very different. This film was very challenging and extremely technical with all the CGI effects and everything. I think it was harder than doing just a romantic story but I haven’t seen their movies. I think it’s great that the girls are doing that. I think the timing is quite bad so it looks like we’re doing it at the same time.” The full interview at teenhollywood.com has since been removed.
