Kim Cattrall On Playing An Aging Porn Star

“It was actually kind of a relief. It was like getting rid of the Barbie doll and throwing it out and starting again. We were shooting in Detroit, and there’s a lot of great bars in Detroit. So I ate and I drank for about six weeks.”

Kim Cattrall on gaining 20 pounds and going totally unglamorous for her role in “Meet Monica Velour,” about an aging porn star living in a trailer park. Ahhh, I am now trying to picture Samantha Jones ordering potato skins at a Rock City dive. Priceless. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

10 Reasons We’d Like Armie Hammer To Be Our Prince Charming

Because Hollywood is a magical place where ideas sprout in twos, there are currently two Snow White movies in the works—one starring Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and the other with Julie Roberts as the Meanie Mirror Looker. Charlize’s project seemed to be in the lead when Kristen Stewart was cast as Snow White and Viggo Mortensen signed on to be the hunter charged with killing her. But, finally, score one for the Julia Roberts version. It was just announced that “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White” has found its Prince Charming, and it’s Armie Hammer of “The Social Network.” [Huffington Post]

This news makes me very, very happy. After the jump, 10 reasons I adore Armie. Keep reading »

Mila Kunis Says Natalie Portman Did Do The Dancing In “Black Swan”

“Natalie danced her a** off. I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from what Natalie deserved and got. She’ll tell you, no, she was not on pointe when she did a fouetté. No one’s going to deny that. But she did do every ounce of every one of her dances. [Lane] wasn’t used for everything. It was more like a safety net. If Nat wasn’t able to do something, you’d have a safety net. The same thing that I had — I had a double as a safety net. We all did. No one ever denied it.”

Mila Kunis responds to the allegation made by ballerina Sarah Lane, Natalie Portman‘s body double in “Black Swan,” that she did the bulk of Natalie’s dancing in the movie and was told to keep quiet about it. Funny how the story back in the fall was Natalie and Mila dancing their a**es off, literally. [EW] Keep reading »

Cameron Diaz Working On A Baseball Rom-Com For Alex Rodriguez?

Rumor has it that Cameron Diaz is currently developing a baseball movie. And we’re not talking “Field of Dreams” here; we’re talking more along the lines of “Fever Pitch.” A source tells The Daily Express, “Cameron actually has an idea for a romantic comedy set around Major League Baseball. She’s very excited about developing her own projects and the fact this one is about a baseball player means she has good reason to spend more time with A-Rod and the Yankees. She’s even thinking that Alex could star in the movie with her.” All we can say is, “Cameron … nooooooooo!” If you need a friend to tell you it’s a bad idea, talk to Drew Barrymore—and her baseball romantic comedy was at least based on a Nick Hornby book, not to mention co-starred Jimmy Fallon, who is a much better actor that A-Rod could possibly be. Well, since she may be doing this anyway, let me suggest a plotline: big deal baseball player loses street cred when his girlfriend feeds him popcorn at a big game. And … roll.

Michael Douglas And Matt Damon To Kiss In A Liberace Biopic

“I just saw Matt…and I was teasing him. I was saying, ‘Bring a lot of ChapStick, babe.’”

—Michael Douglas pokes fun at Matt Damon, his co-star in an upcoming biopic about Liberace and his younger lover. For some reason, we thought we’d see Matt make out onscreen with Ben Affleck first, but we will take it. [E! Online]

After the jump, Matt’s thoughts on his big kiss scenes with Michael.

10 Famous Merkins On Screen (NSFW)

Famous Merkins On Screen
Actors who are committed to their craft will go to great lengths to ensure that they’re portraying their character as realistically as possible. In some case, that means wearing a merkin. A merkin, for those of you who don’t know, is a pubic wig. It’s donned by actors and actresses who need their down-there hair to fit the time period of the film they’re in. And considering most actresses likely engage in some sort of pubic grooming, a merkin ensures they can play the part realistically without having to grow their own pubes out accordingly. Additionally, a merkin can work as a sort of shield for the actor’s own sexy bits, if they’re not comfortable showing them off. Evan Rachel Wood had her first experience with going full-frontal on film when she was making the upcoming HBO movie, “Mildred Pierce.” alongside merkin expert Kate Winslet. “I was a lot more nervous than I thought I was going to be,” she said. “I looked at Kate and she was like, ‘You’ve got to do it. Trust me, it’s so brave. Put a merkin on and you’ll be fine.’ … Let’s just say, I had to wear a wig because it was in the ’30s, and everything had to look like it was in the ’30s.” In other words, expect bush — lots of bush — when the film debuts March 27. [XfinityTV.com] The merkin has become a popular prop in many mainstream movies. Here’s a look back at other famous moments in pubic-wiggery.

“Pirates Of The Caribbean 4″ Looks Mermaid-tastic

 

Behold, the trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” The rest of the interwebs is excited about it because Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz seem to have a love/hate flirtation going on as they search for the fountain of youth, even though Johnny has said Jack Sparrow is gay. I am excited about it because … it’s a mermaid movie! A genre that should be much more common. Keep reading »

Will A New “American Pie” Give Its Original Stars A Fresh Start?

“American Pie” is a late-’90s classic. But “American Pie 2″ and “American Wedding,” the concept’s second and third parts? Well, they were pretty abysmal. And don’t even remind me of the straight-to-DVD spin-offs “American Pie: The Naked Mile,” “American Pie: Band Camp,” and “American Pie: Beta House.” Universal Pictures isn’t deterred, though. They are looking to reboot the franchise 12 years later, with a fourth installment that will veer truer to the original. Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, and Eugene Levy have already signed on the dotted line for the new movie and deals are in the works for Tara Reid, Chris Klein, Mena Suvari, and Jennifer Coolidge. Alyson Hannigan may or may not be involved.

This news comes a day after Seann William Scott announced that he was checking into a treatment center for “health and personal issues.” Actually, several of his original co-stars have had “personal issues,” haven’t they? Keep reading »

“Friends With Benefits,” The Other Movie By A “Black Swan” Star About Shtupping A Friend

 

Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher didn’t get great reviews for their romantic comedy, “No Strings Attached.” Now, we bring you the complete trailer for “Friends with Benefits,” Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake‘s nearly identical movie. And, uh, it looks really cute. I like that in this movie, both characters have gone through breakups and are in a vulnerable place when they enter into their arrangement. Mila doesn’t have the annoying I’m-a-workaholic-who-hates-relationships vibe Natalie’s character had in her movie. And Justin just seems so much more humble and unassuming than Ashton did in the other flick. Plus, this preview got a few chuckles out of me. What do you think—will this movie be better than “No Strings Attached”? After all, it did win the coveted title of “Friends with Benefits” that the two projects jockeyed for. Keep reading »
