“I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll — sorry, Aaron, you’re exposed. And Nicolas said, when we were on set, ‘I want you to be Wonder Woman.’ And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat … Hopefully the stars would align. It would be really fun. It would be cool, wouldn’t it? I’d get to kick ass.”
—Christina Hendricks talks to NYMag.com about how Nicolas Winding Refn, her director for “Drive,” has said that he wants to direct a reboot of “Wonder Woman” with her in the lead role. I know David E. Kelley’s re-imagining of the classic, starring Adrienne Palicki, barely got off the ground. But even though this project hasn’t even been greenlit yet, can I buy tickets now? It sounds awesome. [NY Mag]
After the jump Nicolas Winding Refn’s take. Keep reading »
“What we’re saying is that [J. Edgar Hoover] definitely had a relationship with [Clyde] Tolson that lasted for nearly 50 years. Neither of them married. They lived close to one another. They worked together every day. They vacationed together. And there was rumored to be more. There are definite insinuations of—well, I’m not going to get into where it goes, but … If I were a betting man, I actually don’t know what I would bet.”
—Leonardo DiCaprio talks to GQ magazine about his new movie “J. Edgar,” directed by Clint Eastwood. But even though DiCaprio spent months playing the infamous director of the FBI, who wore dresses to parties and supposedly had a relationship with the FBI’s associate director, Leo says he isn’t sure in the end if Hoover was gay. After the jump, hear what Eastwood thinks.

. The trailer for “Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 1″ has arrived! Bella and Edward get married! (Bella looks constipated!) Bella and Edward have sex! (Bella still looks constipated.) Bella realizes that she’s insta-pregnant with a baby determined to claw its way out of her! (Okay, I get why she looks constipated in this instance.) I have a feeling that Part 1 of the final movie in the series is going to end just before Bella and Edward’s spawn makes its debut, making me even more irritated that the filmmakers couldn’t figure out how to edit this material down to one normal-sized movie. But whatever. Still psyched! Keep reading »
“I Don’t Know How She Does It” is the kind of movie I will mercilessly mock and deny ever wanting to see, but then watch all the way through every single time it pops up on HBO. Other movies that fall into this category: “He’s Just Not That Into You,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.” (But not “Sex and the City 2.” Never that.) While I’ll be waiting a bit for this flick to hit the small-screen so I can watch it in secret, one thing I can doright now is critique the clothing worn by the ladies who attended the movie’s premiere last night.

Michelle Williams plays Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming flick, “My Week With Marilyn,” and so Vogue naturally had her pose in character for their October issue. “I’d go to bed every night with a stack of books next to me,” she says, explaining how she prepared for the role. “I’d fall asleep to movies of her. It was like when you were a kid and you’d put a book under your pillow hoping you’d get it by osmosis.” Wow, I have to say that Michelle does look so much like Marilyn between the hair, the lips, the body, and the stance. However, does anyone else find that the overwhelming resemblance in those areas makes her normally gorgeous eyes and nose feel disconcertingly off? [Vogue]
