Connick Jr. Risking Brass Monkeys

According to actor Harry Connick Jr., winter up in Canada can be a rough season and he doesn't want to try it again.

While filming the romantic comedy "New in Town" in Winnipeg last January, the actor's face, beard, brass monkeys and eyelashes froze in the subzero temperature.

"This was just cold at a whole different level. I mean, for real," Connick Jr. said yesterday. "You can't function. ... I mean, this is the kind of weather where if you stay out there, you're not gonna make it, you know, especially if you're a well digger or witch with big hooters."

Luckily, the 41-year-old actor had co-star Renee Zellweger's company to distract him from the cold.

The Southern-born stars - he grew up in New Orleans, she hails from Texas - clicked instantly and their scenes together felt natural, he said.

"But 'shrinkage' cut out everything but cuddling."

"By the way, did you realize that Al Gore is an idiot?"
