As chunky as a wheelie bin and still sporting the tree-trunk neck he got from intensive training for his role in Wolverine, hes a bit like Arnold Schwarzenegger if Arnie was younger and more intelligible. But playing a cross-dresser in Ang Lees forthcoming Taking Woodstock was right up Schreibers street. I loved wearing the shoes, he smiles. It was a very pleasant return to a period in my life when I was in heels. Hes joking, of course. Theres a glint in his eye as he admits that, no, he wasnt at Woodstock in slingbacks because he was only two when the fes- tival happened. In fact, he was baffled why Lee would want him in the movie. I looked ridiculous because I was still so muscle-bound from Wolverine. Hes not sure why the makers of Wolverine wanted him for the role of the metal-clawed mutants beefy brother, Victor Creed, either. He is such a badass, evil guy, and I was this scrawny kid from the Lower East Side, said the actor born Isaac Liev Schreiber 42 years ago. I had to hit the gym. I trained for about five and a half months. It was awful. Some were surprised to see Schreiber in a popcorn flick, given his reputation as one of Americas finest stage actors. But a glance at his filmography reveals hes always flitted between the highbrow (Hamlet, Love In The Time Of Cholera) and the lowbrow (Scream, a remake of The Omen). It was on one of his loftier assignments in 2006, period drama The Painted Veil, that he met Naomi Watts. The couple have two sons -- Alexander, two, and Samuel, who will be one in December. Now that hes a parent, Schreiber hopes to do fewer films and more theatre. Its daddy work. You can spend the day with the kids, put them to bed, then go to the theatre. Plus movies are phenomenally bor- ing to make. With stage its instant.
