About this deal
You graduated from UCLA with a degree in sociology just a few years before your career really took off with Bring It On. How much did your studies there come to play into the way you approached character work?
Be confident: Cheerleaders are known for their confidence and positive attitudes. Make sure to stand tall and speak with conviction, just like a cheerleader would. A green yellow and orange cheerleading uniform: The Clovers' uniforms are green with yellow and orange, so try to find a cheerleading uniform that matches this color scheme. You can usually find these online or at costume shops.It definitely doesn’t come across that you’re struggling to keep up! What did the training look like? I’m sexy! I’m cute! I’m popular to boot!” If you’ve seen the film, you can probably finish the rest of the cheer, because 20 years later, the opening of Bring It On remains one of the most indelible teen moments of the early aughts. Directed by Peyton Reed, the 2000 comedy starring Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, and Gabrielle Union follows two cheerleading squads—the Rancho Carne Toros in San Diego and the East Compton Clovers in Los Angeles—as they compete for the big trophy in Daytona Beach, Florida. White Running shoes: The Clovers wear white running shoes with their uniforms. You can use any pair of white sneakers you have, or buy a pair specifically for the costume.
Practice some cheerleading moves: To really sell your character, practice some cheerleading moves ahead of time. This could be as simple as a cheer or chant, or more complex stunts like jumps or tumbling. Use cheerleading lingo: Cheerleaders have their own language, so try to use some cheerleading terms in your conversations. For example, you could say things like "Go team!" or "Let's bring it on!"
The director, Peyton Reed, said at the time that you “found what was cool about that character in ways few actresses could,” and that the two of you talked a lot about how to approach Isis. What were those discussions like?
