Tom Hanks Doesn’t Want To Play Any More “Pussies”

“I told my agents that I wasn’t going to play pussies anymore. I was tired of playing, ‘Oh, boo-hoo–I was in love, but oh, boo-hoo-hoo.’ There comes an age when you can’t do that anymore. I wanted to play men instead of boys. In your mid-30s, it’s time to start playing guys of compromise. And as you get older, men of bitter compromise.”

—Tom Hanks talks to W Magazine about moving on from roles like the ones he played in “Splash” and “Sleepless in Seattle” to more hard-hitting fare like “Philadelphia” and “Cast Away.” Point taken, but I’m just not sure how to feel about his use of the word ‘pussies.’ Who knew Hanks could get so crass? Oh, and apparently we’ll get to see Tom as a pussy once again in “Larry Crowne,” the new romantic comedy in which he co-stars with Julia Roberts. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

There’s nothing better than a self-directed man. So we’re pretty excited that Ryan Gosling isn’t just set to star in a remake of “The Idolmaker,” the classic ’80s biopic based on the life of music industry bigwig Bob Marcucci—the movie will also be his directorial debut. And he has some pretty big shoes to fill. The director of the original flick, Taylor Hackford, went on to helm “An Officer and a Gentleman” and “Ray” and is currently the president of the Directors Guild of America. No pressure, Ryan. [Huffington Post]

Directing oneself onscreen must be a pretty complicated task. I imagine lots of talking to yourself and running back and forth to watch takes. Plus, you must get pretty tired of looking at your own face on the screen, no? [Not if you are Ryan Gosling and totally beautiful. -- Editor] But many a celebrity has attempted this feat. After the jump, more yummy guys who directed themselves in movies, for better or worse.

Quickies: Meet Arnold’s (Rumored) Love Child & Carla Bruni Is Pregnant

  • Meet the alleged child whom Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered out of wedlock, Tanner Tousignant, who graduated from high school in California last year. Tanner’s mother, Tammy Tousignant, was a stewardess on Arnold’s private jet for 20 years and friends and colleagues of hers say the pair carried on a romance for years. Both 19-year-old Tanner and Tammy deny Arnold’s paternity, although Gawker has compellingly connected the dots to indicate that might not be the truth. [Gawker]
  • And here’s a timeline of Arnold’s sex scandal history, dating all the way back to the ’80s. Bleak. [Shine]
  • If I don’t have anything nice to say about the jewelry collection Mondo Guerra from “Project Runway” has made, I won’t say anything at all. [The Cut]
