Stephen Dorff Makes Us Want to Watch Britney’s ‘Everytime’ Video

While MTV and The Amp didn't agree on the title of the Paramore special the network will air later this week, we did share one thought today: Looking at actor Stephen Dorff makes us think of Britney Spears' "Everytime" video and nothing else. Since Dorff is promoting the Sofia Coppala film "Somewhere," MTV grabbed the chance to ask the actor about the 2004 David LaChappelle-directed clip, which oddly predicted some of the pop star's bleaker moments from early '04 to late '08. And he reminded us that the video, which shows a young starlet fighting with her boyfriend and then drowning in a bathtub, was actually supposed to be far bleaker:

"There was an original video, too, which was a lot darker," he told MTV. "It was like much more like a suicide type video with pills and wine. It was a little dark probably for the fans. She originally died in the video and then in this video she wakes up in the end."

But does she? Spears told MTV the video was about reincarnation, and something's gotta die if it's coming back to life, no? Also: The video was shot and debuted one year before TMZ launched its website, and yet Britney somehow knew the paparazzi would trade in photos of her strapped to a gurney one day. Creepy. What's less depressing? News about Britney's new album!
