Actress Rachael Leigh Cook
(She's All That
, Dawson's Creek
) has a confession to make: She's got a thing for Sinbad
"I'm obsessed with him," Cook tells Bikini of her fondness for the stand-up
comic and former late-night talk show host. "I don't know why. I just think he is the nicest man ever. I saw him in the Gap. I couldn't believe it. I wanted to say all these things and I get up there and all that comes out is, 'Hi. You're Sinbad.' To which he said something to the effect of, 'Yeah, I think so....'"
Twenty-year-old Cook also admits to the magazine that she's a big-time worrier. She certainly doesn't need to worry about getting work ? the hot young actress has upcoming roles in the movie version of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey and the thriller Get Carter opposite Sylvester Stallone ? but she says she does spend a lot of time worrying about death and bodily harm.
"The other day I was watching Montel, who had [on] kids who survived terrible accidents," she says. "They had this boy who had his arm ripped off by a
tractor. After feeling really bad about that, I thought, 'If I lost my arm, that would be a really big change for me. If I even lost one finger, could I act anymore?' No, probably not. So it's just weird little random things." ? Rich Brown
