Thank goodness for the Wall Street Journal and their brilliant idea of hosting a special screening of Oliver Stone’s new film Savages, in NYC! We are deeply grateful. The film stars John Travolta – Teflon poster boy for ‘gay scandal of the moment,’ hotness Taylor Kitsch (who already has a huge flop under his well adorned belt) and Gossip Girl’s alum Blake Lively.
The film looks kick ass with its Scarface/Traffic like drug story with a menage a trois twist and stellar cast – which also includes Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro – which will not only rock the $$$ takes but work wonders for the aforementioned members in need of a little good publicity. What? Don’t pretend you haven’t been enthralled with Travolta’s multiple alleged dalliances with a number of unidentified masseur. This film will redirect attention from Travolta’s woes and place it back onto his screen prowess – which may or may not be on equal footing, if any of the allegations are to be true. We ain’t saying anything further on the topic! Bite us.
The film will also shine Kitsch’s otherwise lackluster box office tallies and prove just how hot he can be in a film at the hands of a good script.
Just call Oli Stone a modern day protector!
It also comes with a downside. It will catapult Lively into a permanent big screen thespian. Don’t roll your eyes, we are as puzzled at this casting move by the powers at be as you are…
There is no denying that Blake Lively is a pretty girl. She is statuesque, blond and has a rack guys flock too! Give her that, if little else.
Her acting chops, on the other hand, leave a-lot to be desired! That’s not hating y’all, it just is.
So suffice to say that we are baffled at how this missing link managed to work her way into an Oliver Stone film. Seriously. What the hell is Hollywood thinking? Sure she is pretty. But outside of her being able to make like a walking mannequin for a fierce gown, she brings little else other than her ‘I’m divine’ attitude – which doesn’t really translate on a huge ass screen.
But since we are in the biz of capturing the fierceness of her well adorned ensembles, there is little more we can do. Just aim for eye contact or editorially directed images is our goal. And girl delivers on that front!
Other notable attendees: A cheeky Chris Meloni (love him!), Ezra Miller (would it hurt you to shave your underarms?), Dana Dellany, Tyson Beckford and Rosie Perez.
