As Lucy Diamond, the lesbian criminal mastermind who knows firsthand that “love is harder than crime,” Jordana Brewster makes being bad look good in out filmmaker Angela Robinson’s wicked funny D.E.B.S. However, when Lucy and perfect scoring spy Amy (Sara Foster), who is out to prevent Lucy from committing further evil deeds, meet face to face, the concept of handcuffs take on a whole new, erotic meaning. Kitschy and wacky and sexy and silly, D.E.B.S. takes lesbian cinema to a whole new height of hilarity. Brewster, who some will recognize from her film roles in The Faculty and The Fast and The Furious, among others, gives Lucy her delightful and distinctive sparkle.
AfterEllen.com: Had you seen Angela Robinson’s original short film version of D.E.B.S.?
AE: Did that have any effect on your taking a role in the feature-length version?
AE: Playing super-spies and criminal masterminds with humor at a time when the country is at war–how important is it to have escapist comedies such as D.E.B.S. at a time such as this?
AE: Lucy “can hold the whole world hostage, but is scared of going on a blind date.” How do you feel about blind dates?
AE: To get to Amy (Sara Foster), Lucy penetrates a force field and scales the side of a building. Have you ever been so strongly attracted to someone that you would do something similar?
