Catherine Hardwicke—the director behind both “Twilight” and the new movie, “Red Riding Hood“—has an interesting method for casting her leads. She has them make out. “Starting with ‘Thirteen,’ my known technique is to cast the lead, then find someone with whom they have incredible chemistry,” she says. Last week, she explained to us that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had “electricity” the first time they met—in her kitchen, before moving into her bedroom to rehearse a kissing scene. “The same was true with Amanda [Seyfried in “Red Riding Hood”]. I wanted her to be on fire with the person,” Catherine said. Keep reading »

“Do you ever look at your credit card bill & ask your wife how the hell she could spend three thousand dollars on pillows? I do. I mean can’t we just go to Target and get our pillows??? … Needless to say the pillows are going back to the expensive a** pillow store. I was thinking they must be made from unicorn manes.”
—Rocker Joel Madden took to Twitter when he discovered how much wife Nicole Richie, who is in Paris for Fashion Week, spent on pillows. Nicole’s response? “That’s why I ignore your calls.” Ahh, when domestic squabbles make their way onto the interwebs. [People] Keep reading »
Julianne Moore will be playing Sarah Palin in ‘Game Change,’ an upcoming HBO movie about the 2008 election.
Palin stopped by “Hannity” (weekdays, 9 p.m. ET on Fox News) where she was asked what she thought of Moore portraying her.

Since you guys were really feeling the news that “Clarissa Explains It All” is coming back to TeenNick, I thought I’d share this. Did you know that Melissa Joan Hart filmed a pilot for a show called “Clarissa Now” in 1995? The concept was that Clarissa moved to New York to start an internship at a newspaper—which sounds oddly like my life. Too bad the show doesn’t look so good. Clarissa in black with a simple bob?

This is what Tim Burton was working on long before he was the Tim Burton. In 1976, he submitted this children’s book, The Giant Zlig, to an editor at Walt Disney Productions for publishing.
I am submitting this book in hopes that you might consider publishing it. The book has been layed [sic] out in rough form, and I would be glad to make any changes that you feel would be nessecary [sic]. I would hope to hear from you either way. Thankyou.
Sadly, The Giant Zlig was rejected. You can see his rejection letter here. I bet that editor feels like an ass. Aren’t we glad he kept at it? Take note. Perseverance, people. [Letters of Note] Keep reading »
