Anna Faris Advocates Recycling — Boyfriends, That Is


I’ve had a huge girl crush on Anna Faris ever since I first discovered “The House Bunny” playing on cable one morning during the kind of hangover that just feels better to sit out in bed with a whole pizza. I was immediately taken by both her perfect butt and slapstick humor. Thus the utter excitement on getting to be even slightly involved with her new movie “What’s Your Number?” (I did some consulting work for them.) Check out this cute PSA Anna created on going green by recycling your exes. Though, most of my exes belong in the trash rather than getting reused, I still think it’s a funny idea! Keep reading »

Sacha Baron Cohen’s New Movie Is Based On Saddam Hussein’s Romance Novel

Sacha Baron Cohen is all about controversy. I mean, it takes balls to kiss another man in a cage fighting ring and start a near riot of fans outside the wires. But Sacha’s new project, “The Dictator,” is a little different. The movie’s source material is Zabibah and the King. Yes, the romance novel written by Saddam Hussein. The story is about a nice, sweet ruler who falls in love with a woman who is married to a horrifyingly abusive man. The book is an allegory—the ruler is, of course, Saddam and the abusive husband is the mean ol’ US of A. Sacha will play the Sadaam role in this one. And three ladies have read for the part of the woman he loves—Anna Faris, Kristen Wiig and Gillian Jacobs of the majorly underrated show “Community.” What do you think—will this movie be great or tacky? Not that those two are mutually exclusive. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Behold, The Trailer For Anna Faris’ “What’s Your Number?”

Like may others on the interwebs, I am very excited for Anna Faris‘ upcoming flick, “What’s Your Number?” The movie is sort of like a female version of “High Fidelity,” and appeals to us because it’s about a woman having a hard time on the dating trail. When Anna Faris’ character reads in a magazine that 96 percent of women who’ve had sex with more than 20 guys don’t end up getting married, she freaks because, well, her number is 20. So she decides to go back and see if any of the ones she’s already boned—from Andy Samberg to Chris Pratt (Anna’s real life husband) to Joel McHale—was actually the one. The New Yorker totally spilled the beans on what happens in the end, but we’re still looking forward to it anyway. [NY Post] Keep reading »

“There’s A Misogyny In Audiences,” Says Director

“Nicholas Stoller, director of ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall‘ and ‘Get Him To The Greek,’ says, “There’s a misogyny in audiences, a much higher bar of required likability for women stars. You need to make the actress completely adorable, or else she’ll be thought of as the straight man or the bummer — which is why I focus so carefully on trying to write fully fleshed out roles for women in my movies.” To make a woman adorable, one successful female screenwriter says “you have to defeat her at the beginning. It’s a conscious thing I do — abuse and break her, strip her of her dignity, and then she gets to live out our fantasies and have fun. It’s as simple as making the girl cry 15 minutes into the movie.”

— A profile of actress Anna Faris in The New Yorker by journalist Tad Friend became a larger thinkpiece about the “required likability for women stars,” as one director put it put it. There’s a requirement that women on film are not too threatening to male — and one would assume, as well, female — audiences. You have to wonder why that is. I’ve always said that sexism still exists in 2011, only it is a lot less blatant than in years past. But if you ever needed evidence that sexism is alive and well, there you go. (If you’re curious, I wrote a post back in 2009 on this same general topic.) [The New Yorker via AnnaHolmes.Tumblr.com] Keep reading »

Anna Faris Accidentally Sexted Her Dad

“One time I was sending him a text and I accidentally sent it to my dad. I wrote, ‘I can’t wait to see you in bed tonight.’ … There was also a close call with my husband’s nephew who’s like nine years old. I know. We’ve stopped now.”

Anna Faris explains on “Ellen” why she no longer sends sexts to her husband, Chris Pratt. We think it’s a pretty good call that she stopped. Working a contact list just shouldn’t be that hard. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Will “The Bachelorette Party” Be The Female Version Of “The Hangover”?

Thank you for listening to us, Hollywood — The Frisky asked for a female version of “The Hangover” and you delivered. Sort of. See, neither Jennifer Garner, as the uptight bride-to-be, nor Anna Faris, as the cousin who was recently left at the altar and is now forced to throw someone else’s bachelorette party, were exactly what we had in mind. From what we can tell from MTV.com’s synopsis, their characters don’t really like each other; when Garner gets wasted and cheats on her groom-to-be, Faris debates telling him all about it. This woman-versus-woman “You’re getting married! I’m not! You bitch!” shtick is way overdone. It sounds more like “Bride Wars” than a female version of “The Hangover“! We’ll reserve our judgment until after seeing the actual film. But, considering the script is being written by the same person who wrote “The House Bunny” and “The Ugly Truth,” our expectations for non-suckiness are l-o-w. [MTV] Keep reading »
