Celeb: Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn

Thursday, August 11, 2005

This week, stars of Wedding Crashers, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, answer the Getaway questionnaire.

Q : Tell me what your favourite vacation spots are and why?

A: Owen: Sydney. I went there for New Year's. I got to see the fireworks and I met a lot of ...
Vince: And you made some fireworks...
Owen: Yeah, I did make some fireworks. You better believe it. I really did have a great time in Sydney — I am just not saying that.
Vince: I had a great time too. Sydney and Melbourne and I went to Lizard Island which was beautiful. Very relaxing — and the Great Barrier Reef is beautiful. I've never seen anything like it. He goes there — he never sees anything unless it's night time — different styles. I'm there during the day going 'God, look how beautiful this landscape is' or 'boy, how beautiful the ocean is' and he just says to me ass-soup.
Owen: I really did meet a cool girl in Sydney.
Vince: He really did meet a cool girl. They went and bought this kind of a necklace, if you don't mind me telling the story. With a heart at the end of the necklace. Owen broke it — broke the heart, but when they're apart they each have half of a jagged heart and sometimes at night when we were all in filming Owen would go to his balcony and he would take his hand and he would stand at the balcony [making shapes with hands] like this and I would say what does that mean? He would say I know somewhere she is doing that too with her hand and if her hand was there to meet my hand it would make a heart.
Owen: And I'd just be bawling.

Q : What's your number one travel tip?

A: Vince: Do some research before you get there but also be willing to go with the flow once you get there and experiment and go off the road, because sometimes that is where you find the funniest things or have the best experiences.
Owen: I think that's a good one. Do some research, because I hate getting to a city and not knowing where to go to get something good to eat and stuff.

Q : What do you never leave home without?

A: Owen: I know with Vince it's his iPod.
Vince: Without those tunes I can be a real grizzly bear.
Owen: You don't want to be there.
Vince: If I can't listen to my Latin-black fusion I just go crazy.
Owen: And I'm going to be riding in a separate bus. It's like Guns 'n' Roses let Axel ride in his own bus. You don't want to deal with him.
Vince: But if I get my tunes I'm just a lamb. If I can hear my Carly Simon...
Owen: 'Anticipation'. That's the one you're always singing.

Q : What would be your ultimate travel experience?

A: Owen: I would like to surf Jaws, which is in Maui. Those are the big 50 foot waves. I would love to try that. It would be scary, but for the ultimate thrill you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price.
Vince: For me, I'd just like to be in a casino up a little bit of money. Anywhere pretty much.
