The Holiday
Two women trade spaces and find love in the strangest places

While shooting in the English countryside earlier this year, writer-director Nancy Meyers (Something's Gotta Give) was nervous about asking star Cameron Diaz to lather up in the dead of winter. ''Cameron loved it,'' says Meyers, who wrote her international apartment-swap romantic comedy with Diaz and Kate Winslet in mind. ''[In the scene], she's just met Jude Law and is now wondering why she didn't invite him in. It's hilarious because she's so much longer than the tub.'' Back in L.A., Jack Black, who romances Winslet, was less concerned with keeping warm than cooling off. ''Near the end of the movie, there's this party where Jack's dancing in a suit and he was getting really hot,'' says Meyers. ''I had a powerful air conditioner moved over.... He just pulled up a chair and sat right in front of it.'' —Michelle Kung
