Trailer Park: “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows” “The Next Three Days,” “Today’s Special”

It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving and I guess you’re supposed to be freezing pies or making a shopping list for Black Friday or something. But don’t forget to make some time for yourself! Maybe that’s not a great angle since, given an extra hour, most of us would sleep or catch up on TV shows, but don’t forget the movies! It’s frickin’ “Harry Potter” time! There are other movies coming out too, but I’m pretty sure that 95 percent of moviegoers will be heading to the “Deathly Hallows.” And I wouldn’t blame them. That stuff is riveting. So go get ‘em, troops, and don’t forget your wizard scarves, ’cause it’s cold out there! Keep reading »

Is it just me, or are white dresses having a moment? I don’t mean white wedding dresses, mind you. No, I mean, that a striking amount of celebs in the last month or so have been seen out and about or at events donning crisp white frocks, despite chilly temps. Personally, I think the look is totally fresh. That whole “no white after Labor Day” rule is poppycock anyway. Keep clicking to see what I mean …

10 Celebs Who’ve Tried Screenwriting

Living in Los Angeles, it’s a cliché to say you’re working on a screenplay. For 90 percent of those people, nothing will ever come of it. However, if you’re already mega-famous and totally awesome, like Natalie Portman, people will certainly pay more attention. The Harvard-educated actress has been shopping around a screenplay for a “ribald comedy” she wrote with friend Laura Moses. The script is called “BYO” and is about two 20-somethings who’re useless at love and decide to throw a party where women “bring your own” eligible bachelor. Portman wants to take on one of the roles while Anne Hathaway is supposedly interested in co-starring. The flick is being described as a female “Superbad,” and the comedy is hardly PG. Rumor has it that on page five of the script, one of the main characters is caught giving a 15-year-old a blowie! Several studios have passed already, but perhaps it will become an indie flick?

I can’t imagine that Portman wrote anything that’s less than brilliant, but maybe she could use some advice from the following celebs who’ve tried their hand at screenwriting?

Women Whose Names End In “A” Have More Sex

I don’t need a study to tell me that I was destined to be a hoochie mama, but here one is anyway. According to a French study, women whose names end in the letter “a” have more sexual partners over the course of their lifetime than the average woman, who typically has 4.4 partners. Um, try way, way, way above average. I’ve always been an overachiever. [Time] Keep reading »

Ryan Gosling Thinks The NC-17 Rating For “Blue Valentine” Is Misogynistic

“You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario, which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.”

Ryan Gosling on the MPAA giving his upcoming film, “Blue Valentine,” an NC-17 rating. Now, I’ve obviously always lusted for The Gos because of his talent and good looks, but when he goes and spouts intelligent, feminist truth like this, there’s a full-on river of love gushing in my panties. Ryan, this is my kind of dirty talk. [Tres Sugar] Keep reading »
