Taken 2 took the biggest blow, dropping three spots to number four with $13.4 million. Alex Cross debuted at number five with $11.7 million.

Famke Janssen: Men Are Threatened by Me in Hollywood

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Casting, Celebrity Gossip

Famke JanssenFamke Janssen says men are "threatened" by her in Hollywood. The 47-year-old actress - who played Bond Girl Xenia Onatopp in 1995 movie GoldenEye - believes some male actors in the industry don't feel comfortable in her presence but she refuses to change the way she is just to please guys.

"My boyfriend [Cole Frates] says men get threatened by me and I notice it sometimes. I've seen women dumb themselves down in order to deal with men in Hollywood. I've never done it. I don't know how to, I'm too Dutch. I think we're way too straightforward as people to do that."

Famke recently reprised her role in Taken 2, which sees her play the ex of Liam Neeson's alter-ego, who is still in love with her, and she enjoyed working with the 60-year-old actor again because he is "so talented and handsome." She explained, "Oh my God, fantastic. He is so talented and handsome and tall. As a tall actress, it's not easy to find people you can actually look up to rather than look down on. In the story, he's married to his work and I think that would be problematic in a relationship.
