Jake Gyllenhaal Says “Love And Other Drugs” Was An Intellectual Orgy

“In a way, I think it made it easier—going through the journey of not only making ['Brokeback Mounatin'] but then the response of the audiences brought us all very close. That’s a very tight-knit group that remains so to this day. But ['Love and Other Drugs' director] Ed [Zwick] took it to another level here. We worked for 8 days on ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and this was months. Beyond that, it’s our love story in this movie. … Sometimes there’s just chemistry between people. I remember vibing with [Anne] since the minute we started working. Not only as actors but intellectually, too. We all kind of had this weird intellectual orgy.”

Jake Gyllenhaal speaks at the “Love and Other Drugs” press conference about reuniting with Anne Hathaway, and how having a history with her made it easier to do the difficult and often naked scenes in the flick. We know he’s pretending to date Taylor Swift and she has some kind of boring boyfriend, but are we alone in wanting these two to get together in real life?

Christina Aguilera Is A “Good Girl” In “Burlesque”

Ack! My head is exploding! Here’s a clip of “Burlesque” star Christina Aguilera singing “I Am A Good Girl” about how she gets her Chanel dress, her YSL shoes, Dior purse and other goodies from being, duh, “a good girl.” Ugh. Burlesque performers aren’t whores, you know. (Nothing against whores, I’m just sayin’ that Dita Von Teese probably would not appreciate her line of work being compared to a prostitute and/or kept woman.) Please, please, puh-leeze don’t butcher burlesque for me, Xtina! [YouTube] Keep reading »

This “Jane Eyre” Looks Badass


Man, I’m glad I didn’t waste my time in high school reading Jane Eyre because I’m pretty sure the book would have ruined what seems to be an awesome movie! Set to be released in March 2011, the flick based on Charlotte Brontë’s book will star the kick-ass lead from Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland,” Mia Wasikowska and Dame Judi Dench. Best of all, director Cary Fukanaga, who read 24 adaptations of the book (dayum!), feels it isn’t some prissy love story, but a decidedly dark, gothic romance. Suh-weet! Now if only we could get some zombies in there. Oh yeah, and one more thing, I said it once and I’ll say it again, a decade later: “Suck it Mrs. Buckwell, reading is for peeps who don’t have movie theaters!” [The Daily What] Keep reading »

“21 Jump Street” Coming To A Movie Theater Near You

Ahhh, “21 Jump Street.” The show that introduced us to our crush of the past 23 years, Johnny Depp. The premise was a little weak—a group of young-looking undercover officers investigate crimes committed by and to those who aren’t yet of age. (Check out the first 10 minutes of the pilot above.) Now, “Jump Street” is headed for the big screen. The stars attached? Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. Wait, do we smell a buddy cop movie? Suffice it to say that Channing is no Johnny, but still—this could be pretty good. [EW] Keep reading »

Michelle Williams On “Blue Valentine”‘s NC-17 Rating

“I’m happy for [the film] to stay just like it is. Genuinely, I am. Movies get to have long lives and it’ll be judged and rejudged in 10 or 20 or 30 years, and I’ll be curious to see how it stands. It seems like such a condemnation. It feels like such a slap on the hand, like you’ve been a bad kid or something.”

Michelle Williams dishes on how she feels about “Blue Valentine,” the movie she co-stars in with Ryan Gosling, getting an NC-17 rating [EW] Keep reading »

Anne Hathaway On Getting Naked In “Love And Other Drugs”

“I’ve had a chip on my shoulder since ‘The Princess Diaries’ when my nude scene was cut, so I’ve been trying to make up for lost time ever since then. … When you’re in the early throws of passion and lust and love, you spend a lot of time unclothed. The beginning of our characters relationship is in that moment.”

Emma Watson Not Gonna Strip, Do Drugs To Shake Up Her Rep

“I’m not going to get my kit off or snort cocaine in a film, just to leave Hermione behind. I don’t want everyone to forget me as Hermione. I’m really proud of her.”

Emma Watson assures us that she won’t be taking on racy roles to try to get rid of her good girl image post-”Harry Potter.” For anyone not fluent in Brit, “get my kit off” means “to strip down to one’s birthday suit.” [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Anne Hathaway Wanted To Dress As Jake Gyllenhaal’s Appendage For Halloween

“Jake, I almost wanted to be one of your biceps for Halloween. But I wouldn’t have fit through any doorways.”

Anne Hathaway jokes at the press conference for “Love and Other Drugs” about co-star Jake Gyllenhaal‘s physique. Keep reading »

Jason Segel Among The Muppets

So, we have to wait another year before the next Muppet movie comes out. But at least we get to see what the movie’s co-writer, Jason Segel, looks like frolicking with Miss Piggy and Kermie. [EW] Keep reading »

Ryan Kwanten Admits He’s A Masochist

“I’m a huge fan of Westerns. It was originally pitched to me like that, so I was gleefully rubbing my hands together, flipping through the script. I realized pretty quickly on that even though my character is called Shane Cooper—after ‘Shane’ and Gary Cooper—he didn’t really have the iconic quality that a classic Western hero has. He’s very fallible. I mean, in the first frame, he’s forgotten his gun—this isn’t exactly a Clint Eastwood gun slinging guy who takes down any posse. I felt like he was more relatable, so everytime he’s knocked down, you’re hoping he gets back up again. I love it. Really and truly. My friends will attest to the fact I’m very much a masochist at heart.”

—”True Blood” eye candy Ryan Kwanten talks about his new movie, “Red Hill,” a role he says he took to show he could be something besides Jason Stackhouse. But wait, Jason is a bumbling police officer too, no? [NY Post] Keep reading »
