Hilary Duff is pregnant—which is awesome. [My inner-Cathy disagrees! -- Editor] However, her pregnancy might have cost her a plum role in an indie flick. Hilary had been set to play bankrobber Bonnie Parker in “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” a re-imagining of the classic outlaw tale. This would have been a big deal, considering that the role was played by heavy-hitter Faye Dunaway in 1967. However, the makers of the new version say they are recasting, suspiciously close to when Hilary announced that she is preggers. A source with the film said, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Ouch. [Jezebel]
After the jump, other stars who allegedly lost work because they got knocked up.
Lindsay Lohan‘s first staring role since her release from house arrest is in the music video for Miggs’ new song, “Let the Games Begin.” In the video, Lindsay plays a model/actress by day. But by night, she is a “world famous street artist known for his social commentary,” even though authorities have vowed to arrest “him.” This is obviously an allegory for Lindsay’s life. Frontman Don Miggs expalins, “She hasn’t beaten her kids or cheated on her husband. She isn’t Tiger Woods or Mel Gibson. She hasn’t done things that have hurt other people.” Keep reading »
Last week, before his appearance on “Bachelor Pad” last night or the news that he’s teaming up with Donald Trump for a reality series that sounds like far too wholesome (concept: Bret helps people “overcome their problems”), Bret Michaels had another TV gig. On the Weather Channel. Apparently, he did a little storm chasing for the network, showing footage taken out of his tour bus window. “This is Bret Michaels. I am on tour and heading into one of the most insane storms I’ve ever seen,” he says. “You’ve got to see this lightning, check it out. Woah. The wind’s gotta be blowing at least 40 mph. All kinds of insane lightning strikes. This is awesome. Scary, but cool.” He also took footage from his private plane as they flew over Omaha. “The only thing you’re seeing is rooftops of some of these buildings. Bridges gone,” he said. “A lot of good people here, including my sisters, they’ve been hit hard by the flooding. So let’s hope for the best.” Indeed. Maybe he and Donald can make that their first stop? [Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
“Be careful around January [Jones] … She’s not as approachable as the others. She’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.”
—Jared Gilmore who plays Bobby Draper on “Mad Men” gives words of advice to his replacement. Yes, Jared is moving on to bigger and better gigs than being Betty Draper’s emotional punching bag. He landed a part on the new ABC drama “Once Upon A Time.” Diplomatically put, he seems to think January Jones is a bitch on set. This quote confirms my suspicion that she isn’t really acting the part of Betty. It just comes naturally to her. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
The lovely Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are on the latest cover of New York magazine, talking about their movie “Moneyball” that opens on September 23rd. Brad looked kinda sexy on the cover—sort of a reversion to his “Legends of the Fall” self. However, inside, I was deeply troubled with this image. What the heck is going on with his hair? After the jump, some names for Brad’s new hairstyle. Which we’re sure will catch on as hardcore as The Rachel. Keep reading »
