Paul Walker, star of the surprise hit Eight Below, goes from huskies to heavies with his new and decidedly not kid-friendly movie Running Scared, a Mob thriller. The 32-year-old Glendale, Calif., native, who has a 7-year-old daughter, Meadow, with an ex, spoke recently about his favorite sled dog, hating Keanu Reeves and how his latest film cost him a girlfriend.

How was it working with the dogs in Eight Below?
I was dealing with 64 dogs (because) each dog had seven doubles. I knew them all by name. I knew each and every one of their personalities.

Could you keep any of them?
No. I wanted to go home with Jasper he was Shorty in the film, and he was the worst dog to work with. The dog never hit his mark. He was the fastest one, though, and the sweetest one.,00.html
