The First “Into The Woods” Trailer Has Arrived

Into The Woods
Not Convinced

The first trailer for “Into The Woods” is here, and it gives us pretty much nothing to work with. There’s no singing, which is a little odd considering that this movie is supposed to be a musical. There’s also no Johnny Depp, and about three seconds worth of words. Not impressed so far. I’m already disappointed enough that this movie has been Disneyfied — in its onstage life, “Into The Woods” was always meant to be a fairytale for adults with some not-so-pleasant themes. Since Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, and Anna Kendrick are in the kickass cast, I’m still holding out hope that this movie will be salvageable. Disney, don’t let me down! [DListed]

“The Giver” Trailer Is Out & It’s Kinda Underwhelming

The Trailer Is Out!

I’ve been waiting for Lois Lowry’s YA novel The Giver to be made into a movie ever since I was a kid reading the book 100 times. It’s not until my adulthood that I got my wish and I have to say, judging from today’s trailer, disappointment.  I know it is just a trailer, but the setting, the costumes and the music look pretty indistinguishable from a lot of the big blockbusters aimed at teens and tweens, like “Divergent” and “The Hunger Games.”  They’re all dystopian YA fiction, but The Giver was the original.  (And what is Katie Holmes doing there?! Is she really old enough to be Jonas’ mother?!) The presence of Meryl Streep can improve a lot about a movie, so let’s hope she does. Take a look at the trailer and let me know if you agree.

Watch Vanessa Hudgens Fangirl Over Meeting Meryl Streep

"She just radiates light!"

When Vanessa Hudgens made an appearance on “Ellen,” she ran into Meryl Streep backstage. From the sounds of it, she reacted exactly like I would have — by squealing and crying and shaking! By the time Vanessa made it in front of the camera, she was still reeling and couldn’t stop gushing about it. Apparently, celebs are still fans just like us! [Huffington Post]

Plus, A Sexy-Sounding Oatmeal Cookie Recipe!

Meryl Streep is probably the greatest actress we’ve ever known. She can play any character thrown at her. Hell, just listening to her speak could make even the most mundane subject matter more interesting. While on “Ellen” this week, Meryl’s talent was put to the test, as she was instructed to read from index cards in different voices or as different characters. A traffic report really is more exciting when Meryl reads it like a woman who’s about to give birth! I have a piece of Ikea furniture to put together. Sure would love for Meryl to come over and read the instructions aloud.

Disney Family Is Mad At Meryl Streep For Pointing Out That Walt Disney Was A Bigot

Queen Forever And High Priestress Of The Universe Meryl Streep has pissed off some people. Some powerful people. You see, Meryl Streep is on Walt Disney family’s bad side about she told the audience at an awards gala that Walt Disney was a “gender bigot” who, at the very least, told a woman animator only men could do the job and also supported an anti-Semitic lobbying group.

Jesus, Meryl. Next you’re going to tell us that Tom Hanks runs a puppy mill in his basement.  Keep reading »

The Thought Of Jack Nicholson And Meryl Streep Having Wild Sex Is Making My Brain Bleed

According to a new biography about Jack Nicholson, he and Meryl Streep had wild sex in Jack’s Winnebago on the set of “Ironweed.”

The two would allegedly emerge from Jack’s trailer “shaking” and cast and crew would complain that “his Winnebago seemed to be balanced on four overworked Slinkys.” One anonymous source remembers complaining that “whatever [was] going on inside that Winnebago [was] starting to get out of hand, to the point where [it was] embarrassing a lot of people on the set.”  Keep reading »

“Margaret Thatcher was a pioneer, willingly or unwillingly, for the role of women in politics. Her hard-nosed fiscal measures took a toll on the poor, and her hands-off approach to financial regulation led to great wealth for others. There is an argument that her steadfast, almost emotional loyalty to the pound sterling has helped the UK weather the storms of European monetary uncertainty. To have withstood the special hatred and ridicule, unprecedented in my opinion, leveled in our time at a public figure who was not a mass murderer; and to have managed to keep her convictions attached to fervent ideals and ideas — wrongheaded or misguided as we might see them now — without corruption — I see that as evidence of some kind of greatness, worthy for the argument of history to settle. To have given women and girls around the world reason to supplant fantasies of being princesses with a different dream: the real-life option of leading their nation; this was groundbreaking and admirable.”

— Here’s Meryl Streep, who portrayed former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the 2011 film “The Iron Lady,” remembering the politician, who died today at age 87.

After the jump, others remember the controversial yet pioneering Thatcher, who was Great Britain’s first and only female PM: Keep reading »

Jennifer Lawrence Explains Her “I Beat Meryl” Golden Globes Acceptance Speech

"Idiots, it's a quote from a movie!"

Poor Jennifer Lawrence. She wins a Golden Globe for her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook” and yet all anyone can talk about is how she “dissed” Meryl Streep in her acceptance speech. When Lawrence popped on stage to receive her reward, the first thing she said was, “It says I beat Meryl!” leading Lindsay Lohan — yes, that Lindsay Lohan — to tweet “no1 should ever mess with a legend, such as Meryl Streep.” The thing is, Lindz and everyone else who thought Jennifer was being a snot, “It says I beat Meryl” is a famous line from the hilaaaaaaarious movie “The First Wives Club.” Watch as Jennifer explains herself on last night’s “Late Show with David Letterman,” and then check out the original after the jump… Keep reading »
