Matthew McConaughey, Sally Field, Rachel Weisz, James Gandolfini and Michael Shannon – the few folks we had the opportunity of snapping a few frames of the NY Film Critics Circle Awards, held at Crimson. The folks we weren’t afforded? Daniel Craig, Kathryn Bigelow – who raced out of her SUV and into the restaurant as if the tax man was after her, Daniel Day Lewis and Jessica Chastain – who was utilizing her day off from starring in The Heiress to attend a variety of scheduled events around Gotham.
Occasionally, we marvel at celebrity stamina. But then we recall that they are paid to promote themselves and keep their names in the public’s eyes. We reckon we’d enjoy days of nothing but gym and lunch appointments too…
We are also left baffled, at times, when the gods of the big screen undertake going thru extreme measures for the sake of a role. Case and point: McConaughey who is presently filming Dallas Buyers Club, opposite Jared Leto, in where he plays an AIDS patient circumventing the US FDA regulations and importing meds from alternate countries and then making them available to club members.

Are We Officially Dating is a question Zac Efron needn’t ever ask. Most everyone on the planet to his liking would assuredly be well at ease with making his periodic Black Book listing of late-night booty call. Present company included. But this isn’t about getting to tap that fine ass of his – at all. That’s the working title of his new film, presently filming on-location in NYC.
We stopped by the Gramercy Park set, yesterday afternoon, and caught the studly, al-be-it short, soon to be ex-twink-a-licious 26-year-old filming scenes with co-star Imogen Poots. (See more from the set after the jump!) Read the rest of this entry »
Just look at what sliding into skank Halle Berry’s punnany goes and gets you! Gabriel Aubry, Berry’s baby daddy, went and got his faced beat by her present in-house cock Olivier Martinez. And all while dropping off his child back at her mothers’ house after Turkey day visitation.
Ain’t that some shit?
Reports state that Nahla got a partial look-see at the melee before being whisked indoors.
We ain’t never been a fan of the under-cover Ho. And we are so less so now for this trailer-park trash act stemming from an ongoing child custody battle.
But now we add Olivier Martinez to the people who’s work we won’t patronize for going and damaging that beautiful face of Aubry’s. That and for getting his dumbass involved in something he ain’t got two-words to say about as the child isn’t his.
Berry is no stranger to domestic violence and her various prior relationships are testament to that. But in true Hollywood fashion, she has always purported that she was the victim… Something we’ve always thought a far fetched farce.
Sometimes a bitch is always looking to start some shit. Don’t act like y’all don’t know what we mean…
That Berry has gone the legal route in attempt at removing Aubry from his child is offensive enough but that she can’t put aside her control-freakish Me-Me-ME personality for the better of her daughter, not to mention a man she saw fit to once carry on with and procreate is just too-damn much.
But the real kicker is that she is so wholeheartedly bent on scarring her child over some trifling bullshit is altogether the thing one can’t get past.
A happiest of birthday to new mom Charlize Theron. The South African beauty and OSCAR winner turns 37 years-old today and, with her newly adopted son Jackson, she finds her way onto the MILF category listings for the first time. Congrats on both counts girl!
Now we mention the MILF as their are those in the hetero world who are into that sort of thing. We don’t personally subscribe but we ain’t going to say there is anything wrong with it.
Theron makes for pushing 40 look easy. But when your body is your vessel I reckon it behooves you to keep it polished. We understand the need plenty and only wish we were part of the privileged few who didn’t have to cow-tail it to The Man and spend our days having lunch meetings and working it with our trainer.
Les we digress…
Happy Birthday bella! And many more!
We are ardent fans of James McAvoy. And with yesterdays humidity thrown into an already sweltering day of near all-time high temperature we would daresay that we have proven that ten fold. But no matter, love does for loves own sake. So when when we spotted the 33 year old Scottish actor of Narnia, Atonement, Wanted and Last King of Scotland fame (for all y’all Bronx folk who don’t know) standing directly across the street from us against a fence, well, we don’t mind admitting that we really did think we were losing it altogether due to heat exposure.
Damn it if it was not stifling.
But no! IT WAS HIM! We know not how he just up and surfaced to be standing there, but he did. And it took us a plum good few seconds to raise our camera, for so captured by his presence were we, and start snapping away.
Ordinarily we abhor when someone has this affect on us. Just not proper. But hell if he isn’t dreamy, so we just go for the ride.
And damn if we wouldn’t take a ride on that!
Alas, the set was filming on private hospital property and our mirage was short lived. But we’ll take five minutes of wonderful anytime.
We are also thrilled that McAvoy will be reprising his role in the X Men prequels alongside Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence immediately following completion of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.
The studio may not be releasing box office totals for The Dark Knight Rises, but lets be honest, this weekend – Colorado massacre aside – is all about the Batman! Hands down. Nothing short of a cataclysmic happening could knock the 3rd installment of the franchise from topping records.
And Letterman lied. Batman doesn’t arrive at his untimely demise, as he let “slip” during Anne Hathaway’s recent appearance and the rumored method of finalizing the trilogy.
The cast is stellar and above all one stands out – you guessed it – Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
And so this posting is to sing hotness’ praise, so let us delve straight into it.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt rules this film. And without giving too much away, his character suggests the rise of another character close to the films hero namesake. Don’t get us wrong, we were thrilled to see Hathaway hold her ground as Selena Kyle, but all in all its about Gordon-Levitt.
We anxiously await word on if the studio will be able to procure Christian Bale’s further participation.
Blake Lively is to Savages what we feared most. A disappointment. The Oliver Stone directed fabled love drama about a menage a trois of herb growers living the high life on the West Coast until the Mexican drug cartel comes to muzzle in and force their hand into their success jar by kidnapping the Lotus playing Gossip Girl alum has all the ingredients for success. John Travolta anyone? But, like a cheap tease, it never achieves shock or much else really. And no one likes a tease!
In theory, this movie, which boast a high-wattage of A-list talent, including: Taylor Kitsch – who just can’t seem to catch a break, Aaron Johnson, Benecio Del Toro, Salma Hayek and alleged bi-sexual tabloid cover boy John Travolta – as the two-timing federal agent – should’ve been a huge hit. It’s opening should’ve made the top three, or at least better than its fared so far, opening in sixth place – and not looking to recover any ground. And this was something expected with Travolta’s participation alone.
But the flick don’t give you any type of satisfaction.
Our theory, after sitting through it, is that blame cannot be solely placed on Lively – as much as we would like to try. Stone’s story just fought too hard to keep the film PG-13 appearing. And that’s no bueno. Blood and gore, which in this movie is deftly depicted thru the ensuing violence within the world of Mexican drug traffickers and their enforcers – Del Toro does shine as a deranged sociopath – is not enough to drive a film which headlines a three-some as its driving force.
Sad that lighting a man on fire and be-headings are more mainstream than some tits, cock and ass. Where is the logic in that? 420 is for making long sweet love y’all.
Let this be a lesson to Stone! If your femme fatale is too cutesy shy (or diva-ish) to show a little snatch when getting into a bathtub with the 2nd of her two love interests in the film, then the signs would indicate you have yourself the WRONG femme fatale!
Same goes for your male counterparts. If they are too self conscious to show some cock and balls than they are the wrong duo! The story demanded a less white-washed representation given that it’s not exactly new ground – Traffic anyone?
We don’t see this film getting a 2nd life with the oncoming Dark Knight debuting. Savages looks to have gotten its one and only breadth and achieved DNR.
In an ode to See No Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil, cast members of the new film “Can A Song Save Your Life,” Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Hailee Steinfeld parked themselves on a hot ass summer day in NYC’s Washington Square Park to mull over some ice cream and film scenes chatting on a park bench. And of course the city paps were in the know.
Unlike our previous visit, the films primary British star – Knightley – was out in the open and unable to shield herself from photos in a doorway or behind her hired goon. A fact that, in between takes, was visibly troubling the waif. Girl looked as peeved as a monkey performing tricks.
We don’t understand what keeps her so miserable. You get paid beaucoup cash to sit and regurgitate someone else’s written dialogue while a hoard of PA’s run around attempting to cater to your every whim. Eat something! Perhaps maybe then you will rid yourself of the sour demeanor that plagues you.
Just a thought.
We got out shots and hightailed out of the park in attempts to resist the urge of running into the cascading water in the newly renovated center piece of the historic green space. That and we were attempting to make it to an alternate film set up a ways.
Alas, we should have simply given in to the urge cuz no sooner did we arrive at site b than the heavens opened and it rained on our heads along with some nickel sized hail.
Ain’t that some shit?
We would’a paid good $ we don’t have to see Knightley running for cover though…
Tom Hardy and his costars Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Will Estes, Morgan Freeman, Josh Stewart, Scare Crow himself Cillian Murphy and our beloved Joseph Gordon-Levitt were joined by Daughtry, Ron Howard, Dennis Haysbert and Penn Badgley at the world premiere of The Dark Knight Rises on Manhattan’s UWS, yesterday. And the crowd spanned a city block for a glimpse of all that testosterone.
And who can blame them? We ain’t going to complain about the men out-numbering the women at the Batman preview any. To us, that fact is some serious icing on a flavorful cake. A plus with party written all over it. We ain’t greedy or nothing, it merely serves for diversity and keeping busy is all.
We can’t imagine this truly being the end of the re-boot. It just can’t be. We imagine this will break box office records and Bale will be threatened with single-handedly being responsible for the break down of Hollywood itself if he doesn’t return and fulfill his duties.
Alright, that’s a bit much but he has taken the Batman role to new dark heights and for that we can all be eternally grateful.
We still remain with some reservations about the chosen party to take on Cat Woman but as the title suggest, this is about the MEN! Get set for a kick-ass weekend.
After merely five years of marriage, the dynamic duo that is Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes – otherwise referred to as TomKat – is coming to an end. That’s right y’all, D-I-V-O-R-C-E! We know, we are as torn up about it as we were missing the YSL sale last season.
No justice, no peace!
People.com is exclusively reporting the news – although no word on the cause of the split is disclosed. Ain’t that something? The most important aspect of the news is completely omitted! WTF? Why bother releasing the info?
“This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe is quoted as stating. Adding that “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.”
So presumably Holmes gets to keep Suri… We don’t however know if will get the apartment in Union Square…?
We don’t know about you but with news of an impending divorce, we can’t help but wonder what the cause might be. Yes, Cruise is some fifteen years Holmes senior but papi still has it going on and we’d happily slip slide into her spot – were we to be asked – discretion assured.
Assuredly, and much like his previous divorce to Nicole Kidman, not much will come from the surprising split. Cruise’s pre-nup for certain contains a confidentiality clause which will keep Holmes from any tell-tale interviews. But speculation will arise never-the-less.
Damn skippy on us having a theory behind it already. Like for instance, seeing in print makes us wonder… the marriage is five years old yet Suri is a ripe old age of six… we wouldn’t be surprised at their marriage having been a result of Holmes being able to procure Mr. Control-Freak an off-spring. Fertility clause as it were…
And on a separate note – Rock Of Ages is the worse movie EVER! But Cruise did rock.
Lastly, you know how catty gays can be & there is already a mock-up of a fictitious Cruise Grindr ad. No shame.
