Best known as Sloan on Entourage, Chriqui, 30, plays a Palestinian hairdresser in the Adam Sandler comedy You Don't Mess with the Zohan
YOU PLAY A STRONG AND DETERMINED HAIRSTYLIST. I'm Moroccan, and Moroccan women are emotional and temperamental. So I tapped into those qualities. We tend to yell and get straight to the point.
EVER HAVE ANY OUTRAGEOUS HAIRDOS? As a little girl I had short hair, and in the '80s I had the rattail. I was a bit of a tomboy with the crazy Corey Hart spiky hairdo. It was terrible! So when I grew up it stayed long. I learned my lesson.
HOW DID YOUR COMEDIC SKILLS COMPARE TO ADAM'S? I tell the worst jokes. If someone is funny, I'm the first one cracking up. Ironic things and dirty jokes make me laugh.
WHAT'S IT LIKE TO BE ON ALL THOSE LISTS OF HOLLYWOOD'S SEXIEST WOMEN? Shocking. People don't see me in the morning in my pajamas, my hair stuck on top of my head and zit cream all over my face. So to be put on a list with Angelina Jolie
, hands-down the most beautiful woman on the planet, is hilarious to me.
