Actress CALISTA FLOCKHART has become a tarot card reader - but not all her friends are pleased by the news she's telling.
The ALLY McBEAL star took several days to learn how to read cards for her part as a fortune-teller who cares for her dying lesbian companion in the SHOWTIME movie THINGS YOU CAN TELL JUST BY LOOKING AT HER.
By the time the cameras started rolling, Flockhart was actually telling fortunes for some of her fellow cast members, including CAMERON DIAZ, HOLLY HUNTER and GLENN CLOSE. Director RODRIGO GARCIA says, "She really got into reading the cards, but not everyone wants to hear about the future. "After all, it's not always good news. " (SVD/CO/NFA)
