Minka Kelly: Having a nomadic childhood prepared me

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

BEVERLY HILLS – Minka Kelly says a nomadic childhood has helped her adapt to all the things she’s doing as a grownup.

No, silly, she didn’t mean dating Derek Jeter. She meant her new role as the gun-wielding, butt-kicking Eve, one of the three new Charlie’s Angels in this fall’s ABC reincarnation of that popular TV show/movie.

Kelly, whose fellow angels are Rachael Taylor and Annie Honzeh, told TV critics here that “being raised by a single Mom and moving around a lot” made her “adaptable. …You can put me in any situation and I can fit in.”

Eve’s situation is that she was raised in an orphanage and has spent time in prison, so “adaptability” for her has been valuable.

“I also think [that rootlessness] made me value the idea of family,” says Kelly, though Eve seems to send clearer signals on that subject than the actress.

Eve is “a bad-a—- who wants the Angels to be a family,” says executive producer Al Gough.

In real life, the 31-year-old Kelly has thrown little but curveballs at the gossip writers and fans who want to know if she and Jeter are engaged.

They are. They aren’t. Latest word? She seems to be adaptable either way.

Leonard Goldberg, executive producer of the original Charlie’s Angels said, “she’s an angel but unfortunately she’s not one of the angels in this script. ” Kelly took a leap of faith accepting the role, which didn’t really have her in the script. Miles and Gough ended up writing new material with her specifically in mind and to put it bluntly, Eve French is a badass.

Don’t worry, she’s just shooting an upcoming scene for Charlie’s Angels in Miami, with her fellow angels, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh.

ABC is bringing the angels back to the small screen this fall with a reboot of the famous series — which is produced by Drew Barrymore. This time the angels are bad girls who get a second chance, and are ready to kick-butt against crime. Unfortunately, the crew just lost their fearless leader!

“Due to his scheduling conflicts, Robert Wagner will need to step away from his duties as Charlie on Charlie’s Angels,” ABC told TV Guide. The veteran TV actor was set to be the voice of Charlie. According to the report, a replacement has yet to be found.
