Newton Feared Sack From Stone Movie

Actress THANDIE NEWTON feared she was going to be sacked from her role as CONDOLEEZZA RICE in OLIVER STONE'S upcoming GEORGE BUSH biopic W - because she took so long to get into character.
The screen beauty was delighted when she first landed the part, and read every book about the U.S. Secretary of State that she could find.
But when filming on the flick started, she began to have her doubts about taking on the challenge.
Newton says, "I was thinking, 'F**k, have I made a mistake?'... I was only just feeling my way in. I was waiting for him (Stone) to say, 'Look, babe, this isn't working'. But instead, he said, 'You're a plodder, aren't you?'. And I am like that.
"I am that kind of tortoise that just needs to take my time. He gave me permission to do that. I loved his relaxed belief that whatever I did, it was going to be good."
