Catherine Zeta-Jones (Patricia Whitmore)
What was your Eighties musical experience like?
I was working during my time in the Eighties, but it was a real delayed reaction for me. I was into the new romantics, the frilly shirts and Adam Ant with a white stripe across his face . . . Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran . . . I still am a Chrissie Hynde and Pretenders fan.
Were there Eighties people you looked to as role models for the film?
If I wanted to be a rock star, I'd be Chrissie Hynde. I was just thrilled to be singing a Pat Benatar song. I've always [been] a big fan of hers, and I got to sing one of my favorite songs, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot."
