ann-fortunately: “’Shirt cocking’ is a phrase…


“’Shirt cocking’ is a phrase I’ve heard my wife say when I’ve wandered out of the bathroom, wearing nothing but a T-shirt,” Reynolds says. “And she [says], ‘Really? You’re shirt cockin’ it? Really?’ […] I’m gonna keep this shirt, but I’m gonna go change the pants and underwear. I’m gonna lose the pants and underwear in one room, but I’m gonna wander into the next room, just shirt cockin’ it, full Winnie-the-Pooh, and hopefully no one will see me.” [x]

Reynolds wrote that entire “baby legs” scene himself, which made up 11 pages of the finished screenplay. They all loved it so much that virtually nothing of the first draft was changed.
