Yay! The trailer for Ellen Page’s newest movie, “Whip It,” is out and it looks ambrosia for any stifled suburban girl, even if you’ve never broken some chick’s collarbone in a roller derby.
With Drew Barrymore, Kristen Wiig, Juliet Lewis, Eve and Ari Graynor (the drunk friend from “Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) all playing bad-ass roller skaters named Smashley Simpson, Dinah Might and Malice In Wonderland, how can you go wrong? Keep reading »
I’m a huge Drew Barrymore fan, and I simply adore Ellen Page. So, basically, “Whip It” is destined to be my next favorite movie. In this comedy about the roller derby, Page plays Bliss Cavendar, a 17-year-old who rebels against her mother’s pageantry wishes by joining a derby team called the Hurl Scouts. Yes, they wear demented Girl Scouts uniforms. With characters like Smashley Simpson, Babe Ruthless, Bloody Holly, and Maggie Mayhem (which is an ode to the screenwriter’s real-life derby name), this film is practically guaranteeing hilarity. And as for the name of the movie, “Whip It” has nothing to do with the Devo song—it’s actually a move used in the sport to get ahead of the pack. Keep reading »
At last night’s MTV Movie Awards, there were lots of bad clothes. Personally, I think Ellen Page (winner of Best Female Performance) dressed quite appropriately for the event, wearing jeans and sneakers. Fancy dresses are not what the MTV Movie Awards should be about, especially if they’re short dresses. As Lindsay Lohan discovered, wearing a short dress while sitting in a movie theater means showing more leg than you may have planned. [MTV] Keep reading »
Wow! Major props go out to Teen Vogue for putting Juno‘s Ellen Page on the cover of their May issue. Normally, the magazine goes for typically “girly” glamour ‘bots like Lauren Conrad and Camilla Belle for their covers — Ellen Page is a super cool departure. We’re looking forward to reading the interview and seeing what she has to say about her sudden stardom in Hollywood. [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »
Did Ellen Page “come out” on Saturday Night Live? In this skit, the Juno star, who’s had gossip bloggers rumor-mongering about her sexuality for months, plays a straight girl who goes to a Melissa Etheridge concert and comes home overwhelmed with pro-female lust. But instead of ending the skit with a joke, as you would expect from the sketch comedy show, instead Page’s “boyfriend” (played by Andy Samberg) hugs her and gives some snarkless speech about self-acceptance. We don’t give a hoot whether Page is straight, gay, or has an outtie bellybutton — but we are stoked she was such an awesome SNL host! [Red Lasso] Keep reading »
