“Lost in Translation” is one of my favorite movies, because of course it is. I am either a walking stereotype (entirely possible) or I just really want to be the Charlotte to Bill Murray‘s Bob Harris (yes, 1,000 times yes; I’m super weird about Bill Murray). If you’ve seen it (and if you haven’t, do that), you’ll recall that aging American movie star Bob Harris travels to Tokyo to film a high-paying commercial spot for a whisky company called Suntory. With that said, I encourage you to watch this 17-second Japanese Jim Beam ad featuring aging American movie star Leonardo DiCaprio. Tell me what you think. “For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.”
I will say this: Leo appears exponentially more chipper than Bob Harris did in his clip, but who knows what he’s really got brewing inside? (Leonardo DiCaprio’s Internal Monologue: “Models. Models. Models. Blondes. Save elephants. Save tigers. Models. Save models.”) [Vulture]
I will never forgive the Movie Premiere Scheduling Powers That Be for pushing back “The Great Gatsby” until May 2013 instead of the holiday season in 2012. Don’t they know that’s five months from now?!?! They dropped one trailer last May — yes, a full year in advance — and just dropped another teasing “Gatsby” trailer yesterday, absolutely oozing with sex, colors, jewels, and Baz Luhrmann fabulosity. Sigh.
You guys. Stop what you’re doing right now and watch the trailer for “The Great Gatsby.” We’ve got Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, and Tobey Maguire as the naif, Nick Carraway. But forget about the cast, because they aren’t even factoring into my obsession with this two-minute trailer. The 1920s’ clothes! The Art Deco typography! The soundtrack! Every woman I know is just a little embarrassed at how many times she’s watched the trailer already. Do it. Do it now. [YouTube]
Just because they’re famous, doesn’t mean their armpits don’t stink just like the rest of us. Especially if they’re not fond of deodorant or showers. Leonardo DiCaprio might be great at acting, but apparently his girlfriend Erin Heatherton thinks he’s crappy at hygiene. The Enquirer claims that Leo is driving Erin away with his stench. “He only showers a couple of days a week to conserve water, and he considers deodorant to be ‘unnatural.’ … Erin has warned him to clean up his act and his hygiene,” said a “friend.” Presuming that this is true, I think Leo either needs to buy him some Tom’s of Maine all natural deodorant or he needs to find a GFwho appreciates his dedication to environmentalism. I wonder if his BO bothered Bar Refaeli? Maybe he could get her back? Click through to see some more celebs who have been accused of being stink bombs. [ONTD]
It’s been 14 years since “Titanic” came out, and I’m not sure about you, but I’ve spent most of that time quietly sobbing, practicing the chorus of “My Heart Will Go On,” and asking anyone with a pencil to draw me like one of their French girls. Looks like our hearts will go on: Paramount just released the official poster for “Titanic: 3D,” which will hit theaters April 6th, 2012 (the 100-year anniversary of the actual Titanic’s voyage). This gives us five months to emotionally prepare — better start now! [via The Hitlist]
Oh, Leonardo DiCaprio, this emotion chart wonderful. You’re a gorgeous child progidy who has risen to be one of the most reknowned actors of our generation — but you take yourself a little too seriously. At least you’ve unfurrowed your brow and taken a step back with the light-hearted film, “J. Edgar,” hitting theaters on November 9. Nothing like an epic biopic spanning 40 years, political and personal scandals, and ambiguous sexual preferences to mellow things out. (See full chart here.) [Star 94.1] Keep reading »
“What we’re saying is that [J. Edgar Hoover] definitely had a relationship with [Clyde] Tolson that lasted for nearly 50 years. Neither of them married. They lived close to one another. They worked together every day. They vacationed together. And there was rumored to be more. There are definite insinuations of—well, I’m not going to get into where it goes, but … If I were a betting man, I actually don’t know what I would bet.”
—Leonardo DiCaprio talks to GQ magazine about his new movie “J. Edgar,” directed by Clint Eastwood. But even though DiCaprio spent months playing the infamous director of the FBI, who wore dresses to parties and supposedly had a relationship with the FBI’s associate director, Leo says he isn’t sure in the end if Hoover was gay. After the jump, hear what Eastwood thinks.
