Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

“There were three pages of sides that I was going to audition with. I read them and then was like, I really can’t do this. … The scene was, like, the girl telling her friends about some sexcapade she had. But it goes into extreme detail and uses the word ‘sperm’ a couple times. I was like, I don’t know guys, I have to go home to my grandparent’s house in a few months at Christmas, I don’t know if I can do this. … It was intense. So mad props to the people who are going to do it. You had to be able to take it seriously and not laugh or turn bright red.”
– “The Carrie Diaries” actress Chloe Bridges revealed to Cosmopolitan that she was asked to audition for the role of Anastasia Grey in the 50 Shades Of Grey movie, but there was more sperm talk than she could handle. I totally respect that. Methinks, though, Bridges will probably get spanked for talking publicly about the auditions. And it won’t be by Christian Grey in the Red Room of Pain.

We heard way back in December that Emma Roberts had a thing for one James Franco, which we suspect may have made things a touch awkward on the set of “Palo Alto”. Directed by Gia Coppola (yes, Francis Ford’s granddaughter, Sofia’s niece, Jason Schwartzman’s cousin, and so on and so forth) and based on a collection of short stories penned by Franco himself, the new movie revolves around a group of high school students in the Northern California suburb of Palo Alto. Roberts stars as the film’s female lead, with Franco as a teacher with whom she becomes romantically entangled. They should probably just have cut to the chase and called it “Famous People’s Attractive Children” — Roberts plays opposite Val Kilmer’s son, Jack. From the looks of the very promising trailer, “Palo Alto” has just the right formula of dark humor and atmospheric ennui that will make it the kind of cult hit teen movie in the vein of… well, anything Sofia Coppola has ever done. Must be that Coppola blood! The film is on the festival circuit right now, and is still in search of a U.S. distributor, but I don’t doubt that it’ll catch somebody’s eye this festival season. Watch the trailer above! [via Deadline]
Legendary NYC punk venue CBGB shuttered in 2006 after 36 years of business, but its legacy lives on — in stories, in memories, in music, and in the form of Ron Weasley’s bare exposed ass. That’s right: Rupert Grint plays Cheetah Chrome, one fifth of the first-wave punk band the Dead Boys, in the upcoming “CBGB” film, which hits theaters October 11. The general consensus around the Frisky office at the moment is that Rupert is one of the few gingers we are not hot for, but I kind of disagree. I always had a thing for Ron, you know? If you, like me, have been waiting years to get a glimpse of the old Weasley backside, now’s your chance! [MTV]
When Jessica heard that British hottie Charlie Hunnam had been cast as Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, she told me she was unenthused, mostly because she wasn’t sure the admittedly sexy “Sons of Anarchy” actor could successfully play a sexual dominant. So I dug up this clip of Hunnam on the UK version of “Queer As Folk,” giving that guy who played Tommy Carcetti on “The Wire” and Littlefinger on “Game of Thrones” a handjob in a bathroom (NSFW, obvs). He’s not paddling anyone’s ass, but I think Jess might be willing to give Charlie a shot now.
After seriously months and months of speculation, Fifty Shades of Grey fans finally have their Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. As we reported yesterday, they’ll be played by Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and star of the short-lived FX sitcom “Ben & Kate,” and Charlie Hunnam, the hot dude who played Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller on “Sons of Anarchy” and Raleigh Becket in the recent robots vs. monsters movie “Pacific Rim.” The British actor, 33, is poised to (maybe) become the next Brad Pitt.
But who is Charlie Hunnam, anyway? Considering we’re about to spend a whole lot of time watching him whip Anastasia Steele into submission, we should know these things, right?

Dakota Johnson, bend over, because you’ve been naughty. According to Deadline, Johnson – daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, and step-daughter of Antonio Banderas — has been officially cast as Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. She’ll be joined by the panty-dropping “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey. I never personally considered Johnson for the role — not that my opinion matters in the slightest — but I’m enthused by it! Johnson was really quite good in the short-lived TV show “Ben & Kate.” Plus, the film is being directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, known for her art work and indie pedigree, so maybe the movie will end up being better than the writing it’s based on. As for Hunnam? Ughgfhwdgfhwgfh, take me to your Red Room of Pain, master! [Deadline, Deadline (2)]
The first trailer is out for the new film “Dallas Buyers Club.” The movie is based on the true story of Ron Woodruff, a Texas man who was diagnosed with AIDS and given less than a month to live. Rather than accepting his death sentence, Woodroof went to extreme lengths to find and smuggle medication from Mexico. Eventually, Woodroof began selling those meds to other sufferers and created what became the Dallas Buyers Club. Matthew McConaughey plays Woodruff, and underwent a startling transformation, dropping more than 5o pounds for the part. Our boyfriend Jared Leto plays Rayon, an HIV+ trans woman who goes into business with McConaughey.
Even watching the three minute trailer made me tear up, you guys. This movie is going to be so heartbreaking, but so necessary to see. It’s not often that we see HIV/AIDS being represented in major film and television shows, and it seems clear that McConaughey and Leto really committed to their roles. Tears! So many tears! [Celebuzz]
