Edited by Michael J. Lee, Executive Editor

Weekend of July 16, 2005


In Stealth, a trio of hotshot Navy pilots (Jamie Foxx, Jessica Biel, and Josh Lucas) must go up against a rogue stealth bomber armed with artificial intelligence. This showdown between man and machine results in an explosive, high-flying action adventure with some incredible aerial dogfights.

In this interview, Jessica Biel talks about her experience of making this movie.

The Interview

MEDIA: Could you tell us a little about the three main characters in Stealth and their story?

JESSICA: The three of us have been flying together for around six months. We finally get a carrier, which means that the squadron gets to go and stay on the carrier and fly off and on, which is what every pilot wants to do, 'cuz that's the most challenging, most invigorating, amazing experience. So we arrive on our carrier and we go on our first mission. And our commanding officer basically brings us all together and says, "We have a surprise. We have a new wingman for you." And we're thinking, "Are you kidding me? You're gonna put another wingman...this is crazy." And he introduces this new technology.

What did you learn about Navy pilots while shooting this movie?

[What] people don't realize about these pilots is not only are they so educated, so smart, but they're cool. And they're fun, and they play hard and they party hard. These are people who are adrenaline junkies, who love what they do.

What did you learn about flying from your experience with the flight simulator?

What are the buttons, what are the screens, what does it look like? How does it feel? What does it really look like when you're turning? What's interesting about the stick is you just slightly move it, and you're moving over, instead of when you're in a video game and you're going back and forth and moving the stick all over the place.

Even though you didn't get to fly a real supersonic stealth bomber, what would you say is the most challenging thing about piloting one of these bad boys?

Everything is challenging about flying these planes. If you can imagine pitch black in the middle of night over the ocean and a ship, and this plane trying to land on a little tiny ship when you're so high in the middle of the ocean, no visuals at all...I mean, what could be more challenging than that? Landing this huge, massive jet, and it just has to catch a little wire and hold on. And if not, you have to go back up and come back around again.
