What’s that saying about not shitting where you eat? Well, Ryan Gosling has decided to take his second big ol’ dump with girlfriend Eva Mendes, who he’s cast in his directorial debut, “How To Catch A Monster.” The two met on the set of “The Place Beyond The Pines,” of course, and I guess things are going so swimmingly, gag, that Ryan wants to work with his lady friend again. Mendes will reportedly be playing a woman named Cat, who works at something called the Big Bad Wolf Club, which may or may not be a fetish club in the film. The movie itself sounds … weird. I can’t tell if it’s weird good or weird bad, but here’s what Indie Wire says about “How To Catch A Monster”‘s plot: “[T]he cryptic logline reveals the story to be centering on Billy, a single mother of two, who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.” Christina Hendricks, Ben Mendelsohn and Rob Zabrecky have already signed on for the film. Look, I’m not trying to jinx things, but I just hope Ryan has a backup in mind for the role of Cat, just incase things go south with Eva. I mean, movies take awhile to make. What if she starts to get on his nerves or he meets someone else? Once cameras start to roll, it’s hard to turn back. Just looking out for Ryan’s best interests is all. [IndieWire]
We’re so bored of our own text messages. The only people who text us regularly are our mothers. Hi mom! We love you, but blergh. We wonder what kind of sexy text messages celeb couples are exchanging … hmmm. They must me more titillating than ours. Or at least more entertaining.
After seeing Jay-Z perform with wife Beyonce this weekend, I had two thoughts: 1) They can never break up, and 2) If the music industry has Jay and Beyonce as their modern power couple, who does Young Hollywood have? Who is the 2012 version of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart? I mean, Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, not to mention Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, have split — which famous pair is poised to take the super couple reigns and hold on for dear life? The obvious choice would be Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but I think we can all agree they are swimming in rough waters right now and can’t really be expected to do the job.
With that in mind, I decided to anoint the new guard of up-and-coming Hollywood super couples, celebs who are great alone but even stronger together. Keep reading »
Ryan Gosling made an appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this weekend and attended the premiere of his upcoming film “The Place Beyond The Pines.” Oh yeah, Eva Mendes was there too, wearing a turban. At first I thought their body language was kind of cool and distant and I felt ashamed of the excitement I felt about that. And then I was mad when I noticed that they were holding hands and unnnnhghhghgh. Well, at least they didn’t get married this weekend like some other people. Phew!
