OSCAR-nominated teen actor HALEY JOEL OSMENT is looking forward to seeing director Steven Spielbergs disturbing war epics - but his parents are making him wait. Osment - who stars in Spielberg's A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001) with JUDE LAW - has yet to see SAVING PRIVATE RYAN (1998) or schindler's List (1993).
The 13-year-old says, "Now I'm getting older I realise it's better to wait. I shot a film in Poland two years ago and my father went to see Auschwitz, but I didn't go because there are things that are too heavy to be dealing with at a young age. " (AH/WNTMI/RP)
