Kristen Stewart Got A Job Offer … From A Strip Club

“Doing this movie … one shocking thing was to find how easy it is [to flaunt your sexuality]. Like, I went to a strip club with the director and the costume designer and it being an odd grouping of people going into a strip club in the middle of the afternoon, I was, like, straight-up offered a job. And then walking around New Orleans wearing the kind of stuff I was wearing literally could be like boom, boom, boom, done. But I would never do that.”

Kristen Stewart talks about playing runaway teen stripper Mallory in the new flick “Welcome to the Rileys,” opposite James Gandolfini. Well, at least Kristen knows she’s got a few job options if the whole acting thing doesn’t work out? [MTV] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Red,” “Hereafter,” “Conviction,” “Jackass 3D,” “Marwencol,” “Carlos”

Every day closer to Halloween is another day that I avoid the candy aisles at the drug store so that I don’t end up passed out in a bed of 600 tiny wrappers, drooling chocolate. If you’re suffering from a similar pattern, there’s nowhere better to hide than a movie theater. But they’ve got candy there, you say? Well, hopefully that 400 percent mark-up is enough to deter you. With the exception of “Jackass 3D,” this week brought some pretty heady films to the table and, for the first time in weeks, no horror movies! So go forth and watch. Keep reading »

Heather Matarazzo, Nikki Blonsky To Star In “Manson Girls” About Charles Manson’s Ladies

Promising to be just as violent as any Bruce Willis flick, yet 1,000 times more creepy, Hollywood indie actresses are signing up for “Manson Girls,” a flick about Charles Manson and the young women in his life. Heather Matarazzo (“Welcome To The Dollhouse”), Thora Birch (“American Beauty”), and Nikki Blonsky (“Hairspray”) have all signed on to play impressionable — some would say stupid — girls drawn in by the charismatic cult leader and his group, The Family. Members of the Manson Family were known for committing crimes, most notably the gruesome murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate, who was then married to filmmaker Roman Polanski. According to the synopsis, “Manson Girls follows a young girl from a wealthy Malibu family who fell under Manson’s spell.” No word yet on who will play Charles Manson, but I can think of half a dozen dudes with the scary facial hair and crazy eyes to pull it off.

The Real Woman Behind The Story Of “Conviction”

You know how when we were kids we thought our moms could do anything? Well, Betty Anne Waters (far left) is a mom who just about did. After her brother, Kenny, was wrongfully convicted of a crime that landed him in prison for life without parole, Waters became determined to become his lawyer and prove his innocence. Betty stayed relentlessness, earning her G.E.D, her bachelor’s degree, and the right to practice law, all while working a full-time job and raising her children. Her story has now been adapted into the movie “Conviction,” which opens this weekend. In the movie, Betty is played by Hilary Swank. Read on to see what this new Erin Brockovich had to say to WomenAndHollywood.com about fighting through life and getting her story made into a film. Keep reading »

Angelina Jolie Banned From Filming Controversial War Love Story In Bosnia

Angelina Jolie has bigger PR problems than fighting off the Jennifer Aniston Fan Club: Her filming permit application has been rejected by the Bosnian government because it was not submitted with a script, as required by law. The film, a taboo love tale about a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman during the war that took place between 1992 and 1995, has outraged victims of the war. It didn’t help that rumors circulated claiming Angie’s flick was a love story between a Serbian rapist and a Muslim victim. That’s not true, but the Women Victims of War Association has accused the flick of “misleading history”; failing to fork over the screenplay when asking for a filming permit probably doesn’t help. In the meantime, Angie’s been filming in Budapest, Hungary. She may want to fix this little PR snafu before she pisses off all of Eastern Europe, though. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

The MPAA Distinguishes Between “Male Nudity” And Just “Nudity”

We may have discovered why “Blue Valentine” got its mysterious NC-17 rating. Could it be because of the very scary factor of “male nudity”? Jezebel’s Brian Patrick Thornton noticed that “Jackass 3D” was rated R because of “male nudity,” among a host of other film sins. After doing some research, he found the distinction of “male nudity”—over, I suppose, just plain old “nudity”—only started this year. He contacted the MPAA for answers. Keep reading »

Aaron Sorkin Responds To Critiques Of Misogyny In “The Social Network”

“The West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin is just like you—when he is pissed off about a blog post, he takes to the comments section! Sorkin, who wrote “The Social Network,” left a long comment on a blog post written by TV writer Ken Levine, who reviewed the movie. Another commenter, calling themselves Tarazza, posted a comment which said she loved the Facebook movie except for “the lack of a decent portrayal of women.” With the exception of Rashida Jones‘ character, Tarazza wrote, the women in the movie “were basically sex objects/stupid groupies,” adding “kinda makes me think that Aaron Sorkin (though I love his writing) failed the women in this script. Kind of a shame considering he’s written great women characters like C.J. Gregg!” (The female communications director on “The West Wing.”)

Sorkin then took to Ken Levine’s blog himself. Keep reading »
