“I love the Scream movies!” Alison Brie told E! Online as their Scream 4: New Generation Week continues with an interview from the adorable actress. And Brie wasn’t bluffing when she confirmed how much she loved the films:
“I could probably recite all the lines. When I was in high school, me and my friends made a version of our own—an homage if you will—called Yell. I think I was the sole survivor. I was the Neve Campbell of Yell.”
In Scream 4, Brie plays Rebecca — assistant to renowned author/celebrity victim, Sidney Prescott. “She’s a go-getter. She’s very single-minded, type A personality—very ambitious. She’s similar to Gale Weathers [Courteney Cox]. She admires Gale.” Luckily for Brie, the bulk of her scenes were with the main stars of the original trilogy: Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette.
When drilled about some of Scream 4’s mysterious, Brie compared the secrecy surrounding the film to her hit AMC series, Mad Men: “It’s not too difficult,” Brie said about keeping the Scream secrets to herself. “I come from the Mad Men way of doing things—don’t ever tell anyone anything!”
Brie did reveal one tiny item she was allowed her take home as a keepsake. “You know what I got to keep? My hair clip at the very end,” she laughed. They were like, ‘You can keep this hairclip.’ I was like, ‘Oh, this hairclip I can get at Rite Aid for $2.99?’
Will Rebecca end up becoming a Gale 2.0? Find out when Scream 4 hits theaters April 15th.
