Saturday should have been one of the most packed days in junket history with roundtable interviews for five different movies… at least until interviews for “The Accidental Husband” were canceled (the movie will now be released this summer) and Colin Farrell cut back on his interviews for “In Bruges” after attending a memorial service earlier in the day. Since I had already decided to skip covering “Step Up 2,” that left just “The Spiderwick Chronicles” and “The Hottie And The Nottie.” Of course, the packed schedule meant we didn’t get to the main event until 6:30 at night.

I don’t have much to say about “Hottie” star Paris Hilton because she didn’t really say that much. She was paired with co-star Christine Lakin, which cut down on the questions for Paris. Here’s what I learned about Miss Hilton:

1.   She’s always wanted to be an actress.

2.   She loves doing comedy, especially after doing five seasons of “The Simple Life”

3.   She always forces her boyfriends to see romantic comedies.

4.   She’s looking forward to celebrating her birthday at Las Vegas clubs Pure and LAX in two weeks and will be making an appearance with the Pussycat Dolls to mark the occasion.

The strange thing was when the interview was over, Paris stood up but didn’t leave the room. It seemed like she was waiting for something. Perhaps she wanted to give us time to ask her for an autograph or take a picture, but it didn’t happen, so she thanked us and left.

Much more interesting to talk to was Nick Nolte promoting “The Spiderwick Chronicles.” He may have jumped from subject to subject in a haphazard manner, but I found myself agreeing with his take on politics (he believes there haven’t been huge protests against the Iraq War due to the lack of a draft) and sympathized with his tales of growing up in a small town where his best friends were the snakes he found in the woods. Also enjoyable were Nick’s young co-stars, humble soccer fan Freddie Highmore and energetic Dubliner Sarah Bolger.

    If there is one thing I could care less about, it’s the political opinions of our monkeys…I mean celebrities.
