The Hollywood Reporter gets a lengthy and candid interview with Eileen Bowman, now 46, who had the misfortune of playing Snow White to Rob Lowe's...wait, was he just singing as himself?...on the Oscars 24 years ago, an appearance that led to a lawsuit, much derision and an angry letter to the Academy signed by the likes of Gregory Peck and Julie Andrews. Now, Bowman recalls being drafted into the job before she fully understood what she was auditioning for:
"I remember Bob Mackie said, 'Why am I making a Snow White outfit?' I fainted once during a fitting because I hadn't eaten. I woke up, and Bob was going, 'Honey, are you all right?' He gave me juice. My dress was bought for $23,000 by someone involved with the production who was buried in it. It was a man. I'm leaving it at that."
She goes on to recall Olivia Newton-John—who had starred in Xanadu!—asking her how on earth she'd done such a thing in front of so many people.
