Haven't my friends heard of the 'Three Block Rule'? I've always tried to lived by it even though I didn't know the name. Last week at the Brothers' press conference -- same day I met Jake (only earlier) -- Tobey Maguire recounted his first meeting with Natalie Portman.
I remember the day that I met her she taught me a valuable lesson there which is the “three block rule”. We were at a screening of a movie and I don’t think I liked the movie that much and I was going to talk about it...Even at 14 that girl was damn smart. If you want to read my piece about Tobey, Jake and Natalie promoting Brothers click over to Tribeca Film.
And she just said 'Wait a second. You don't know the three block rule?'
'What's the three block rule?'
'You don't talk about the movie until you're three blocks away because you never know who is listening'
