Jackman explains, “I probably shouldn’t be saying this, but I remember when I was about 19, me and my mate used to go to these dance parties which were 80 per cent gay guys, 18 per cent girls who were sick of heterosexual guys hitting on them, and then vultures like me and my mate. “We would go there until two in the morning, when the girls were really drunk and wishing they weren’t with 80 per cent gay guys. (I was) The worst! The leech! The vulture!” However, Jackman is starting to tire of the rumours which still surround him: “I just think the whole idea of judging someone based on their sexuality is ridiculous. In Australia, we’re much easier on all those fronts. I was playing a gay guy. I actually took it as a compliment.”
Oscar-winner Joaquin Phoenix will record every step of his transition from movie star to musician in a forthcoming documentary. The Walk The Line star announced his plans to retire from Hollywood - at the age of 34 - late last month. Phoenix told reporters he wanted to focus on his budding music career, adding, “I’m not doing films anymore. I’m working on my music. I’m done. I’ve been through that.” According to a source at People.com, Phoenix has already started filming on a documentary “that will showcase his transition from acting to music”. Last week (beg17Nov08), the star surprised the crowd at California nightspot Carbon, when he took the mic to perform a rap recorded by his brother-in-law, actor Casey Affleck.
Ok I’ve been listening to this all day and it’s not working for me. A lot of people say this is good, groundbreaking, and they actually like him a lot more now. I don’t. I loved the old stuff, and this is just not as good. Yeah, it was hip hop, but quite good hip hop at that, better than average. While this new stuff is ‘meh’ at best.
“Ciao Daniela, complimenti per il tuo bellissimo blog che ho scoperto grazie a Cinema a 4 stelle. Ti scrivo perché da grande appassionata di Favino mi piacerebbe che potessi dedicare un nuovo post al suo ultimo film in uscita a ottobre, che aprirà la festa del cinema di Roma: L’uomo che ama. Il film mi incuriosisce molto perché narra la storia di un uomo diviso tra due amori, che si trova ad essere vittima e carnefice allo stesso tempo e che soffre per amore. Stando a quanto ho letto parla dell’amore dal punto di vista maschile, credo che sia una bellissima novità. Purtroppo non ho molte altre informazioni a riguardo e quindi mi piacerebbe poter leggere un post con più informazioni e giudizi in proposito, sono sicura che tu ci riusciresti! Spero di avere presto tue notizie! Grazie, Barbara”
Cara (inesistente blogger Barbara)
ma lo sa Favino che promuovete il film così? Poi hai voglia caro Silvio Muccino Rosicone ad augurare a tutti i cinecosi di chiudere. Ve le cercate.
Magari è proprio lui a scriverti, il Pierfra, e tu così offendi la sua sensibilità.
“Some people spit metaphors, but I spit metafives.”—
Bobb’e J. Thompson freestyling on Carson Daly. That line was so good that I googled it to see if he got it from some other rapper. Not only was that line not in Google, he straight up invented the term “metafive” on the spot. (via dalasverdugo) (via rd67) (via jessicat) (via soupsoup)
“I remember going to the MTV Video Music Awards with Anthony Michael Hall and David Lee Roth, driving down Fifth Avenue in a convertible Studebaker. David was wearing white gloves and tails. I was like, ‘Dude, is it ever going to get more modern than this?”—Robert Downey Jr. (via) (via natashavc) (via soupsoup)
‘A version of Shakespeare’s play, set in the world of warring indoor and outdoor gnomes.’
That’s the description of a new movie called Gnomeo and Juliet. It’s not a b-movie. It’s an animated film that stars James McAvoy and Emily Blunt. I hope this movie is an unqualified success and allows me to find a producer for a script I wrote called Wuthering Gnomes. It’s the harrowing story of gnomes who are wuthering.
“The new James Bond is pretty good. Not great, but a fun watch. I was really looking forward to the Aston Martin vs. Alfa Romeo race, but there were way too many shots of the Aston’s clutch as Bond changed gears 400 times.”—Kelly Dwyer
