17 Celebs Hanging Out With Their Stunt And/Or Body Doubles

Quvenzhane Wallis has scored the part to end all parts — the lead in the movie remake of the musical “Annie.” But at only 10 years old, there are laws about how often she can work, so it makes sense that her stunt/body double for the movie would be an adult, who can work as often as necessary. Perhaps this elder doppelganger can play the role of everyone’s favorite orphan in the sequel, “Annie 2: All Grown Up” in which Annie takes over Daddy Warbucks’ business. Just a thought!

It’s A Hard Knock Life! See First Pics Of Quvenzhané Wallis Filming “Annie”

The collective squee you heard around the world last February was the casting news that 10-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis is starring in the “Annie” remake being produced by Jay Z and Will and Jada Smith. The pint-sized “Beasts Of The Southern Wild” star is replacing Willow Smith, who aged out of the role — and thank goodness for that, because Quvenzhané is beyond cute. Just look at her riding a CitiBike around Harlem! I’m not saying I’ll ride the subway uptown and lurk around the set hoping to catch a glimpse … but I’m not saying I won’t. [Image via Splash News]

The Onion Offers Classy, Humble Apology For Crappy Quvenzhane Wallis Tweet

The Onion has posted a sincere, to-the-point apology for their tweet about Quvenzhane Wallis posted during last night’s Oscars. Props to them for owning up to it and not only apologizing but also explaining why it was wrong. Full text below and after the jump:

On behalf of The Onion, I offer my personal apology to Quvenzhané Wallis and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the tweet that was circulated last night during the Oscars. It was crude and offensive—not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting. Keep reading »

For the most part, last night’s Academy Awards were painfully unfunny — Seth MacFarlane, NEVER AGAIN — and way, way, way too long. But there were some great acceptance speeches, unplanned gaffes, and plenty of moments ripe for GIFing. Because I love you, allow me to recap everything worth recapping from last night’s Oscars, in pics, GIFs, and video clips… Keep reading »

The Onion Crosses The Line With Joke About 9-Year-Old Oscar Nominee Quvenzhane Wallis — But So Did Host Seth MacFarlane [UPDATED]

UPDATE: The Onion has posted an apology on their Facebook page. Read it here.

Last night’s Oscars draggggggged on and on, but if you managed to stay up for the full exhausting affair, and were fooling around on Twitter at the same time, then you probably saw controversy erupt over a tweet posted to The Onion’s account.

Everyone seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhane Wallis is kind of a cunt right?

Quvenzhane Wallis is nine years old, you guys. Not okay, The Onion. But they weren’t alone. Seth MacFarlane crossed the line big time too. Keep reading »

Quvenzhané Wallis May Live A “Hard Knock Life” In “Annie” Remake

Blast it, ”Annie” remake. I didn’t want anything to do with you, and then you have to go and possibly be casting Quvenzhané Wallis as your lead. Stop it. I don’t want to look forward to you.

The casting report is courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, which is careful to note that Wallis is only being considered and that no casting has yet been decided upon. The musical was previously going to star Willow Smith (Jay-Z and Smith’s parents, Will and Jada Pinkett, are three of the producers), but at 12 years old she wouldn’t be the right age by the time the movie starts shooting.

So they need a new spunky, streetwise tyke, and the nine-year-old Wallis might just fit the bill. She turned in one of the best performances of the year in “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” and she seems quite spunky in interviews, so I might have to see the movie if she gets cast. Read more…

Vaunted Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley doesn’t suffer fools — either at his magazine job, or as a former judge on ”America’s Next Top Model.” Which is why it’s so sweet to see him shuffle so uncomfortably in his interview with pint-sized “Beasts of the Southern Wild” phenom Quvenzhané Wallis. Talley had the nine-year-old Nicki Minaj fan over to the office to discuss pop music, puppies and the color pink.
