Mollyjones: First of all, you seem really funny, and really in love with John. Second, I read in a magazine that you and he bought the huge entrance sign from Disnyeland and have it in your living room. Is that true? If so, that's really cool. How big is it?
Rebecca Romijn: Yep, it's true, and it's huge! It was more John's idea. But it's not in our living room--nor will it ever be!
