Sam Rockwell Was "Obsessed" With Playing George W. Bush in Vice

It sounds like Sam Rockwell went a little overboard preparing for his role in Vice. When he hit the 2019 Oscars red carpet with partner Leslie Bibb, Ryan Seacrest asked what he used to get ready to play George W. Bush, and it was Bibb who stepped in.  "Ev-ery-thing," she said. "We live in New York and we live in a loft so there are no walls, so it was like, morning, noon, and night". "I did everything you can think of, man," Rockwell explained. "I was like obsessed with being George Bush." He watched the Josh Brolin movie W, he watched Will Ferrell's SNL impression, and of course, he practiced in front of the mirror. Just based on the way Bibb said "ev-ery-thing," we're going to guess it wasn't very much fun for her.
