7 Actors Hit By The “Oscar Curse”

Jessica Chastain is quite the “it” girl right now. Not only are her movies doing well at the box office, she recently won a Golden Globe and is nominated for an Oscar. But she should watch out: Award winners often go on to, shall we say, less than award-worthy projects. Celebuzz rounds up seven actors whose careers tanked, at least for a bit, after they won Oscars:

  • After Renee Zellweger won Best Supporting Actress for “Cold Mountain,” she made “one of the worst movies Hollywood made about women in the last two decades,”  ”Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.” “Cinderella Man,” “New in Town,” and “Case 39″ weren’t much better. Read more…

“Empire Records” Cast — Then & Now!

One year before Renee Zellweger became a household name thanks to ”Jerry Maguire,” she starred in the 1995 cult flick ”Empire Records.” To celebrate Renee’s 43rd birthday, we’re taking a look at how the cast of the movie has aged since its release … and what they’ve all been up to in the past 17 years.

Who Should Bradley Cooper Date Next?

I always thought there was something kind of sweet about Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger as a couple. When Bradley said last year, “I can’t say enough about [Renee]. I just love her. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her,” I kind of swooned. When they moved in together in the fall, I thought it was adorbs. But now—after two years of never officially saying they were a couple—the two have supposedly broken up. Which leaves them both single and ready to mingle. [People]

After the jump, who we think Bradley should date next. Keep reading »

Does Doing A Horror Movie Mean You’re Over?

Many of Hollywood’s heavyweights got their start in horror flicks: Jamie Lee Curtis (“Halloween”), Johnny Depp (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”), Jennifer Aniston (“Leprechaun”), Leonardo DiCaprio (“Critters 3″). But while watching the really mediocre-looking trailer for Renee Zellweger‘s new movie “Case 39,” it was hard not to think, My, how far you’ve fallen. It made me start to wonder if doing a horror movie after you’ve already established yourself is career suicide. Is it the ultimate signal of your decline into obscurity? Let’s review the facts … Keep reading »

Bridget Jones’s Diary: The Musical!?

First, Bridget Jones’s Diary was a book. Then it was a movie. Then another movie. And, as rumor has it, another movie. We started shaking our heads when we heard about a possible Bridget Jones TV show. And now, alas, it’s going to be a musical. There’s no word yet on who will be playing Bridget—Renée Zellweger did prove she can sing in “Chicago.” We do know, however, that Lily Allen is doing music for the show. Plus, the director and choreographer of “Billy Elliot,” Stephen Daldry and Peter Darling, are also on board. The musical is in the workshop stage and could open in London’s West End as early as next year. Would you go see it if you took a trip across the pond? [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Jewel Was Called The “Chubby Renee Zellweger”?

So apparently, back in the late ’90s when ladyfolk were buying up Pieces of You and you couldn’t escape the song “You Were Meant For Me,” people started referring to Jewel as the “chubby Renee Zellweger.” Now, I never heard anyone say this—but Jewel claims it was widespread and that this did serious damage to her self-esteem. “My feelings were so hurt by that, I ended up binging on an entire cake. Afterward, I actually tried to throw it all up, but thankfully I couldn’t do it,” she said. “I had seen so many performers develop eating disorders or try to control their weight with drugs, and I decided I would do no harm to my body.” Eek!
