pink flowers & a book's latest "fresh face" interview - hunter parrish

Age: 21

Hometown: "I really haven't found it yet. I live in Los Angeles now. I grew up in Plano, Texas."

Currently: Making his Broadway debut as Melchior, the smart and sexy young hero in the hit Broadway musical Spring Awakening.

Beginnings: Parrish started out in the business early, at just six years old, doing commercials. "I started acting first, but I was always singing," he recalls. "I sang in church, and then did some musical theater, but I had no 'career path' idea for it." A meeting with a manager in his hometown (near Dallas) led him to Los Angeles, where he began to land film roles and TV pilots. "I just stuck around for a while and got very lucky," he says modestly. Parrish returned to Texas for high school, but continued to send in taped auditions for movies and television, which lead to his big break, Weeds.

There's Something About Mary-Louise: A few months after auditioning via video for Showtime's now-hit series, Parrish got the call to fly to L.A. while filming a movie in Montana. "It all happened so fast, I was like, 'OK, whatever, let's do it!'" The young actor was cast as Silas Botwin, the delightfully rebellious older son of Mary-Louise Parker's pot-selling suburbanite, Nancy. "I think [working with Parker] is one of the best things for me in my growth as an actor and a person in the industry over the past four years," Parrish says of his on-screen mom, with whom he shares a close relationship. [He played the son of a second Tony winner, Kristin Chenoweth, in the feature film RV, laughingly admitting, "I had no idea who she was then."] In January, Parrish and Parker will be working seven blocks apart when she stars in a Broadway revival of Hedda Gabler. "We're very excited to be on stage together at the same time and in the same city," he says. "It's going to be a great beginning of 2009."

Awakening on Broadway: Parrish first auditioned for Spring Awakening last November. "I met all of the creative team and did readings with other characters, including [current Wendla] Alexandra Socha," he recalls. Then came rehearsals: "Grueling!" he jokes. "No, actually, it was a total pleasure. The creative team is so giving and caring, and the cast is so supportive. It's been nothing but a creative exploration of the character." Parrish ultimately started as Melchior a week earlier than planned. "I made a ton of mistakes, but I only hoped to go into it having fun. And I had a blast." Spring Awakening's dedicated fan base adds to his positive experience. "Weeds is sort of that way—it has this cult following—so I'm used to that idea, a tight group of people being avid lovers. It's cool to have that again now, on stage."

You Can Leave Your Pants Off: Both Weeds and Spring Awakening have left Parrish less than fully clothed. As Silas' sexual experiences progressed over the show's four seasons, he had to decide if he was ready to go the half-monty. "I've always been very comfortable with my body, so my parents grew up with me…you know, I wasn't exactly clothed all the time." Still, he went to Mom and Dad for advice. "They both were like, 'Hunter, everybody and their mother has seen your butt anyway,'" he jokes. "Their support helped me make the final decision to go ahead and do it and just own it." How does Melchior's love scene compare to its TV counterpart? "Doing it on stage is way scarier," Parrish admits. "Luckily, the scene is between me and one other person and I don't remember that the audience is there because I'm looking into her eyes the whole time. It's a very, very, special scene and it's very tasteful so I didn't even think twice about it. But the first time I did it, I was like, 'Uh oh, there's a lot of people… staring at my butt.'"

You Sing? Given his television character, Parrish is aware that people are surprised, as he puts it, "to see 'Silas' on stage singing and dancing, because he's not that kind of guy at all. This is the first time I've actually gotten to showcase my voice to a lot of people at once." A budding rock songwriter, he describes his own music as "very acoustic and raw, unstripped and honest" and finds Spring Awakening a perfect match. "My voice fits with Duncan Sheik's style of song, and that's my style," he says. That doesn't mean he's opposed to branching out, of course. "I want them to bring back Joseph [and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat]. If anyone has that idea, I'm your man!"

M.I.A.: 'I didn’t want to make music again'

MIA has spoken out about her comments onstage at Bonnaroo in June, when she told the audience that the slot was her last gig ever.

The Brooklyn-based Sri Lankan said “It was my last ever show. And it still is. I stopped touring after that and I didn’t want to make music again. I was quite happy to just leave it all behind. I was happy with what I had achieved.”

As previously reported, the rapper cancelled her summer tour of the UK, and while onstage at Bonnaroo said “This is my last show, and I'm glad I’m spending it with all my hippies.”

But it seems she’s finding it hard to stay away from music, and is currently planning her new record after enjoying massive success with her song ‘Paper Planes’ in the US.

“With the success of ‘Paper Planes’, there’s pull for me to make another record. Even my mum believes in me more” she told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s a nice encouragement. But I was planning my life as a fishing woman on the outskirts of Cambodia. That’s a joke.”

She also says if she had permanently quit the music business, that a foray into the film world was likely to have been her next step.

“I think I would have gone and made a film. As an artist you want to play around with mediums and see if you can get the point across in a different way. I wanted to stay an outsider and prolong the process of getting accepted.”

What Do You Stand For, ONTD?

Perhaps you may have come across Idina Menzel's song "I Stand", the title song off her new album released in January on Warner Brothers Records.

I group of fans came together in May to put together a video for Menzel, which she later mentioned in multiple print and broadcast interviews. This video, edited by yours truly, sent the message that people stand for all sorts of things, no matter the depth.

The video inspired a facebook page found here which unites people through the song's message.

Idina performed this song Wednesday at an event for the Democratic National convention, in addition to hosting another on Tuesday.

To build on the "I Stand Movement" - as her website calls it - she is offering a free download of the song, urging fans and otherwise to share their own beliefs.

Michael Phelps Carrie Underwood Dating: Carrie Underwood Michael Phelps Planning “Quiet First Date"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

  Fourteen Olympic medals has superhuman swimmer Michael Phelps looking very good to country singing star Carrie Underwood.

Michael was over the moon after hearing a rumor that the one-time American Idol thinks he is “cute.” According to celebrity tattles on-site at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, the twentysomethings are frequently texting each other and have already begun planning a “quiet first date” near Carrie’s home in Nashville, Tennessee.

pink flowers & a book's top ten divas

If athletes are the gods of the Olympics, then surely divas are the goddesses of Broadway. In fact, the word diva is derived from the word divine. And divine they are. To be clear, we are not talking about the negative connotation of the word "diva," meaning high maintenance, prima donna behavior onstage or off. Nor do we mean fabulous performances that would be better filed under I for ingénue (under which you would most certainly find Kelli O'Hara's winning performance in South Pacific and newly anointed Broadway sweetheart Bailey Hanks of Legally Blonde). We're talking about no-holds-barred, brassy, belting, brazen Broadway broads that know how to hold audiences in the palms of their delicate hands. As the Olympics light up Beijing, here's a tribute to 10 divas currently lighting up Broadway.

10) Carol Woods (Chicago)

We must have been good to Mama somewhere in our youth or childhood, because Matron Mama Morton, in the form of the awesome Carol Woods, is certainly good to us. The big-voiced Woods, who also showed off her pipes in the film Across the Universe (singing a wonderfully bluesy version of "Let It Be") as well as the musicals The Full Monty, One Mo' Time, Follies, Smokey Joe's Cafe, Stepping Out, The Goodbye Girl, Grind, Big River and Blues in the Night. As Mama Morton, queen of the Cook County Jail, Woods brings a cracking wit to her performance as well as warm humanity. If there's such a thing as a prison warden with class, this is it.

09) Marin Mazzie (Spamalot)

Here's a testimony to diva power: take a Tony-winning musical that's been running for a while and insert a bona fide Broadway star in a part with delicious costumes and showy comic numbers. Suddenly, with the robust addition of the staggeringly talented Marin Mazzie, Spamalot's got a new sheen. The golden-haired Mazzie is a Broadway regular, appearing in such shows as Kiss Me, Kate, Ragtime, Passion, Man of La Mancha, Into the Woods, Big River and Kismet, and she brings a whole new dimension to the Lady of the Lake. It's a diva role that needs a true diva to fill it. She even has a song called "The Diva's Lament." Need we say more?

08) Mary Testa (Xanadu)

An argument can be made that it's not the actress herself that makes one a diva, it's the part. We beg to differ, and a shining example of a powerful performer turning a less substantial role into a divalicious feast is the one and only Mary Testa. Testa may play a malevolent muse in the campy Xanadu, but she truly is a muse to composers William Finn and Michael John LaChiusa among others. With her ability to wring emotion from even the most restrained parts (see LaChiusa's See What I Wanna See to her current show-stopping "Evil Woman"-belting sinister sister, Testa is every inch the diva—whether she has the leading role or not.

07) Eden Espinosa (RENT)

That voice! From Wicked to Brooklyn to the final cast of Rent, Eden Espinosa has proven to be one of the finest belters on Broadway. But Espinosa is more than just a pretty voice; she's a force of nature, who brings sass, grit and determination to her current portrayal of Maureen in Rent. Espinosa first burst onto the scene as Idina Menzel's very capable standby in Wicked. (She claimed the part of Elphaba as her own on Broadway in 2006.). But she made her name as the title character in the ponderous Brooklyn, which had a far-fetched plot—however, once she opened her mouth to sing, much was forgiven and a new Broadway diva was born.

06) Karen Olivo (In The Heights)

With her sleek hair, seemingly endless legs and wide-ranging vocal prowess, Karen Olivo is the real deal. Though she's been on Broadway before (in Rent and Brooklyn), it's her sultry performance as Vanessa in In the Heights that landed her on this list. Olivo is a grounded diva—she plays an ambitious young salon worker dreaming of getting out of the Barrio—who plays the part just like Vanessa takes her coffee: light and sweet with a touch of spice. Olivo exudes an earthy quality that might seem at odds with some people's notion of what a diva is. But when she launches into "It Won't Be Long Now," you know you are in the presence of the genuine article.

I wasn't going to say this because it's already so obvious, but... Heidi Blickenstaff is missing from this list.

Guitar Hero: A Future Brett Ratner Film?

There are worse directors in the world than Brett Ratner. For example, despite trouncing the great character work found in the first two X-Men films and dishonoring their memory, X3 was at least competently directed with action scenes that made some sort of visual sense. But here at /Film, Ratner is someone that we love to hate, a hired-gun director who seems completely content to make films that can best be described as stunningly mediocre. It comes as no surprise, then, that Ratner recently expressed a desire to make a film version of Guitar Hero.

In a recent interview with MTV’s Jocelyn Vena, Ratner divulged his desire to make a film based on the monstrously popular game:

I love ‘Guitar Hero’ and I think it’s a part of pop culture. I would love to do a ‘Guitar Hero’ movie, if Activision would ever let me. I’m trying to convince them, but why would you have a movie screw up such a huge franchise? Not that I would make a bad movie. So that would be cool, to do a ‘Guitar Hero’ movie…It could be about a kid from a small town who dreams of being a rock star and he wins the ‘Guitar Hero’ competition. One of these dreams-[come-true] kind of concepts.

Over 21 million copies of Guitar Hero have been sold and that gravy train doesn’t look like it’s going to be derailed anytime soon. Still, it’s understandable that Activision would not want a crappy film tarnishing its precious franchise. My feeling is that in a nuclear situation where a Ratner film ends up being spectacularly bad, sales of the game units would be unaffected, although executives might look back at the film as a curious misstep in brand management.

One other thing to think about: In Ratner’s brief description of what the plot of the film might be, the “Guitar Hero” competition sounds like a real-life competition with actual guitars. This reduces the movie to a generic musical success story, only with some crass Guitar Hero branding. Why not go the South Park route and have the kid compete at a “Guitar Hero” competition, where they actually play the “Guitar Hero” videogame? (I’m kidding, I’m kidding…or am I?)


His description for a GH movie reminds me of The Wizard.

Series creator Tim Kring lets slip the title of the next chapter of NBC's sci-fi hit, and it signals interesting times for our super friends.

The third chapter of Heroes has yet to begin, but anticipation is already palpable for it ( previewed the excellent first half of the debut), largely in part to its mouthwatering title, "Villains."

The straightforward names of the volumes have always been a good indicator of what's in store for that chapter. Season one gave us "Genesis," which appropriately detailed the beginnings of these "ordinary people with extraordinary abilities." Season two was named "Generations," and focused on the family trees of the superpowered characters.

Everyone loves to hate a good baddie, and "Villains" will go with the flow and examine how people use their newfound powers for evil. But the third season will be more than just one chapter and is going to be split up into separate volumes (just as season two was supposed to before the writers' strike cut things short).

'Camp Rock' tops DVD sales

'Camp Rock' tops DVD sales
Eight top-selling videos were all new releases
By Thomas K. Arnold
Aug 27, 2008, 06:50 PM ET

"Camp Rock"
The appeal of the Disney brand to tweens was apparent on DVD for the week ending Aug. 24, as "Camp Rock" and "Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert" debuted at No. 1 and No. 3, respectively, on the national home video sales chart.

Sandwiched in between was Fox's "Street Kings," which overcame a boxoffice gross of just $26.4 million to debut at No. 2 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart -- and No. 1 on Home Media Magazine's video rental chart.

The cop thriller handily beat Sony's horror remake "Prom Night," which despite a boxoffice of $43.9 million bowed at No. 7 on the sales chart and No. 2 on the rental chart.

For the first time in recent memory, the eight top-selling videos were all new releases. Universal's scored another direct-to-video success story with the sequel "The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior," which debuted at No. 4 and sold more than 700,000 copies its first week in stores, according to the studio.

Paramount's Season 2 set of the Showtime series "Dexter" debuted at No. 5, Universal's Season 4 set of "House" entered the chart at No. 6 and Warner's first-season set of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" bowed at No. 8.

On the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, "Street Kings" debuted at No. 1, with "Connor" bowing at No. 2 and "Scorpion King 2" entering the chart at No. 3.


Nightmare on Elm Street 4 actress Tuesday Knight says Gillian Anderson was a twat to her


During an interview with a horror website, Knight was asked about doing an X-Files episode:

Let's talk about X-FILES because you did an episode. I love X-FILES, but I honestly only consistently watched the first 4 seasons and then after that, I'd catch random episodes. So, you were in "Trevor", which was a season 6 episode. What was that experience like? I hear David Duchovny is a prankster on the set? Is that true?

Uh, he is, and he is wonderful. But the woman was a nightmare!

Gillian Anderson?

Yes. She was the nastiest woman I've ever worked with on anything. I almost walked off, and the reason I didn't was because of David, because he was such a doll. And of course the money. They were giving me good money to do it. Gillian was like, "Oh, you're the guest star this week? Oh, I don't sit with guest stars. No, I'll only talk to children guest stars."

I mean, unbelievable. I'm in a scene with her, and we're walking out the door and it was really cold where we were. So, I just say, "God, it's really quite chilly." And she looks at me and goes, "I have no idea what you think is chilly or what you're talking about. Or any concept of you." And I just looked at her, nodded and said, "...Great. Ok."

The rest of the interview is pretty interesting, too. She talks about how Lisa Wilcox (Alice from Nightmare 4) tried to screw her over in their business venture.


michelle williams out with matilda yesterday

Taking full advantage of the beautiful Big Apple weather, Michelle Williams and her daughter Matilda Ledger were spotted taking a stroll together yesterday (August 28).

The “Dawson’s Creek” darling and her precious little girl looked blissful as they spent a little mother-daughter bonding time.

And little Matilda seems to get even cuter with age- she charmed onlookers with her big smile as she pranced around in a white dress with flower accents and a pair of pink crocs.

Playing the role of the doting mother, Michelle held Matilda’s hand while looking matronly in a blue button-up blouse and a pair of high-waisted white trousers.

Audrina Patridge: Hanging With Sis

While it may seem that she’s too caught up in the whole Hollywood scene at times, Audrina Patridge still knows how to put family first.

And yesterday the “Hills” hottie was spotted on her way to a medical center with her sister Casey Patridge and niece Sadie Raine.

In related news, FOX Pop Tarts’ Hollie McKay recently reported that Miss Patridge is the object of many designers’ affection, with “thousands of dollars worth of goodies” heading her way on a regular basis. Another top name designers aim for is her Hills gal pal Lauren Conrad.

A publicist told Tarts, “The fashion houses really want those girls wearing their product. They’re photographed a lot and are known just for being cool Hollywood girls.”

But when it comes to hooking up Heidi Montag, most designers pass. “They don’t want their stuff on Heidi, even despite the fact that she is very media-friendly and is photographed a lot. It’s just not the caliber of celebrity most clients go for.”

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz: Ready For Baby

She may be getting further along in her pregnancy term, but Ashlee Simpson isn’t going to let it keep her down. The “La La” songstress was spotted out in Los Angeles doing a little solo shopping yesterday (August 28).

Rocking a black maternity tank top with a matching scarf, relaxed fit jeans, and a pair of black flip flops, the “Pieces of Me” singer carried a big white shopping bag full of purchases to her car.

Meanwhile, Ashlee’s hubby Pete Wentz was doing his thing in LA, strolling around in a purple tie dye shirt, grey skinny jeans, and matching purple high top shoes.

Later on in the day, Pete and Ashlee met up to head over to their doctor’s office in downtown LA. And by that point Simpson looked to have had enough of the paparazzi’s attention, yelling at them to “back off” and using profanity.

McGregor and Carrey in September issue of The Advocate

Gay and Gayer

By Michael Giltz
From The Advocate, September 2008

Ewan McGregor looks pissed. He’s playing the title character, a prisoner, in the new movie I Love You Phillip Morris, and his character has just discovered that a fellow inmate (someone he can’t stand) has been beaten up.

He’s upset because everyone is blaming his boyfriend, Steven Russell (Jim Carrey), for the brawl. But when Morris learns that the gossip is true, that Russell really did order the pummeling, he jumps into his boyfriend’s cot and coos, “That’s the most romantic thing anyone’s ever done for me.” The actors kiss on the lips and roll around until Carrey (now out of character) says to McGregor, “You’re getting a little too excited.”

A beat-down as a romantic gesture? The film’s directors -- Glenn Ficarra and John Requa -- love it. Sitting in the steamy warehouse set outside New Orleans, Requa leans back with pleasure after McGregor and Carrey finish the scene, and Ficarra shouts, “That was great!”

Still, the make-out session needs to be shot several more times. Sometimes the kiss is more tender, other times more passionate. The one thing that every take makes clear is that I Love You Phillip Morris, which the producers hope to see released this fall, isn’t shying away from showing two men in love.

Romance behind bars may not be remarkable, but the true story the film is based on surely is: Russell was a con artist who posed as a chief financial officer, a Virginia millionaire, and other powerful figures in order to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars. Once a police officer, he was married with children before coming out of the closet. Furtive affairs finally led to a relationship with his first boyfriend (played by Rodrigo Santoro of Che), who later died of AIDS.

An icon of indie cinema. To some, the most beautiful woman on the planet. And, on this morning in Paris, fashion model. Just in from Milan, where she’s currently shooting the romantic drama Io sono l’amore, Swinton is exhausted from a late night of filming, but quickly becomes energized by the array of colors, cuts and styles of the fashion choices before her.

‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ Akshay Kumar once again proved that he is the ‘Kinng’ of Bollywood when it comes to performing risky stunts. As part of endorsing ‘Levis’, Akki performed a breath taking stunt as his denims were set on fire.

Akshay walked the ramp and sure had the guests overwhelmed as the superstar flaunted his 6-pack abs and a tatoo on his back that read his son’s name ‘Aarav’. On being asked if ramp walking was difficult, Akki joked, “It is simple, andanyone can do it; just walk straight take a turn and smile, we all learned how to walk at the age of two.” Akki was sure in a great mood as he commented that he always had his 6-packs since the time he entered Bollywood, and now they are more visible to fans after he has shaved his hairy chest.”

It is for the first time that Levis has signed an Indian as its brand ambassador and it is believed that Akshay has been paid a whopping amount to get ‘Unbuttoned’.

Marky Mark Says He Can Take On Batman; Batman's Response: "I'm Not Wearing Hockey Pads"

New Max Payne Trailer Comes with Fightin’ Words for The Dark Knight

Yahoo has debuted a brand new trailer for the upcoming video game adaptation Max Payne this afternoon, but first, some news you can use. In an interview with MTV, Payne star Mark Wahlberg jokingly issued a challenge to the man at the center of the second highest grossing film of all-time, The Dark Knight. This from the interview:

“Take off the suit and if you want to go one-on-one, two-on-one, and put a couple of you guys together - they all like to put the comic book characters together - come at me,” Mark Wahlberg laughed, issuing a challenge to the Dark Knight to put his fighting skills where his mouth is and face off against his character, Max Payne. “I’m not talking about financial box office, I’m talking about one-on-one with these (puts up fists).”

Of course, while his jovial tone and obvious sarcasm may have some brushing off Wahlberg’s comments, we here at FSR believe it to be important that we take all threats against our favorite superheros seriously. That said, we think Batman, or more specifically Christian Bale, would kick the shit out of Wahlberg’s Payne. We would present some sort of scientific proof, but that won’t be necessary — Batman is just that much of a badass. As for Max Payne though, he seems to be doing alright for himself, as you can see clearly in the trailer below.

Max Payne is in theaters October 24th.

And here's the Max Payne trailer, in case you haven't seen it:

Vibe to Robin Thicke: Y R U WHITE?

When I did a recent interview with Vibe magazine I asked, “Why can’t I get the cover? This is a magazine I love. If there’s one magazine that I’d want to be on the cover of, it’s Vibe.” Their response was they don’t have white artists on the cover; that the only white artist they’ve had on the cover was Eminem. I guess if that’s what it is, it is what it is. And I respect that because I live in a house with a black woman.

I won’t use the word “racism.” I will say it’s a tough — but rewarding — fight. I look at Mary J. Blige, somebody who has had only a few pop hits and yet has changed culture, generated new sounds and inspired leagues of artists. She’s now a worldwide phenomenon. And it’s because of what she stood for; she never gave up. She kept making great music, pouring her heart out to people.

You can’t always expect people to be as color-blind or open-minded as you want. What you can do is keep giving your heart and soul, like Bob Marley did. His music became so overwhelmingly loving; it was a relentless love in a sense. Keep beating them down with love and they can’t stop you.

Of course the bad girl hero is now about 15 years removed from her height of fame, but hey, she has another chance again starting next week. I'm trying to think if the trio have slept with any of the same people."

Kate Walsh Post!

Kate Walsh back on 'Grey's Anatomy?'

Kate Walsh has a big job ahead for fall; she has to help relaunch Private Practice, the much-ballyhooed spinoff of Grey's Anatomy about a beach-based group of randy doctors. But even though her character, Dr. Addison Montgomery, is starting to settle in at the Oceanside Wellness Center (David Sutcliffe guest stars as her boytoy! She asserts herself more around the offices!) she may take another trip back to Seattle Grace sometime in the middle of the season, hints executive producer Shonda Rhimes. "I don't know if it's going to work with the story, and we don't want her to come back for a visit if it doesn't feel important, something only Addison can do," says Rhimes. "But the idea is on the table." This wouldn't be the first homecoming for Walsh's Addison; the comely redhead showed up in a Grey's episode over the spring while Practice was on hiatus. SOURCE

Her episode was the best one of last season. She needs to be on Grey's rather than Private Practice.

She replaces original Boeing player Mary McCormack in her Tony Award nominated role.


Red Sonja Update

With the upcoming Red Sonja film starring Rose McGowan hitting theaters next year, is it too early to start talking about a possible sequel? Not if you’re Splash Page!

Catching up with director Douglas Aarniokoski, we asked if there were any preliminary thoughts on any follow-ups or other films from the Red Sonja universe of characters, and while Aarniokoski obviously wouldn’t (or quite possibly, couldn’t) elaborate, he did drop some clues. “I mean, if we start to talk about that, I start to give away the third act,” he said. “Yes, let’s just say yes. It’s definitely got franchise written all over it.”

And in terms of silence speaking volumes, when pressed for possible Red Sonja films featuring the likes of Conan and Thulsa Doom, once again, Aarniokoski wouldn’t comment, but left the door open to speculation. “You know, again, I’d love to tell you but I can’t divulge that. It’s a little bit under wraps right now.”


My opinion is that they should wait how the movie will do before thinking of sequels. Look at what happened to Grindhouse...

David Duchovny has addressed rumors of sex addiction

In interviews over the years, David Duchovny has never been one to shy away from the topic of sex.

But the actor, who has now entered a rehabilitation center for sex addiction, was always quick to add that his marriage to actress Téa Leoni was a pretty good reason to keep his libido in check.

"Twelve years ago, I would have been hard-pressed to understand why I'd want to be involved sexually with one person this long," the X Files and Californication actor told Best Life magazine earlier this year.

"Before Téa, the longest my intense sexual interest would last would be maybe two years," he said. "But the real rewards of a relationship come after you've been together a while. That's where Téa and I are lucky."

Duchovny, 48, and Leoni, 42, were married in 1997 and have two children, Madelaine, 9, and Kyd, 6.

Long Fended Off Rumors

Duchovny fended off rumors of sexual addiction throughout the 1990s. "If you're single and in the public eye and you have a few dates, you're a sex addict," he told Cosmopolitan in 1997. Leoni also publicly denied the speculation at the time, telling Elle in 1998, "David was accused of being a sex addict. Which I always found very exciting. And then I found out it wasn't true."

Still, Duchovny would sometimes engage in frank sexual talk with interviewers. In 1998, in an interview in Playboy, he graphically revealed his affinity for hotel pornography and his fondness for 1980s porn stars.

But he would also sometimes sidestep sexual questions, particularly when they became the focus of interviews for Californication, his racy Showtime show that premiered in 2007.

"T-- and a--, not important to me," he told Entertainment Weekly last year. "Kind of beside the point."

In the interview with Best Life this year, Duchovny emphasized that for a married man, experiencing lustful feelings for other women is harmless – if they remain just feelings.

"There's nothing wrong with acknowledging the panoply of life's rich experience," he said. "You can't control your mind. Why would you want to? You can't feel guilty about being alive, about being a man, about feeling attracted. You can only control your actions."

Michael Lohan speaks to his children~

Michael Lohan tells E! News.

"Lindsay did reach out to me. She sent me a message this morning. She said, 'Now papa has found peace and maybe we can find peace in our lives, too.' "

My son Michael called and he was wonderful. He's coming home to be with me for a fews days. I spoke to Ali and Cody, too. I'm hoping they will come to the wake. I asked her if she's going to be at the wake, but it sounds like Dina is discouraging her from going. She's deterring her from going to the wake, to the funeral. I said, 'It's only right that you go.' But Dina hasn't called, absolutely not. She's too busy out having fun in the Hamptons."

Dina Lohan also has yet to respond to Michael's recent slings and arrows.


desperate attention whore on the prowl

Madonna and Britney Spears did the girl-on-girl thing at MTV's Video Music Awards years ago, but can you ever really get enough celebrity same-sex smooching?

Katy Perry is apparently working on finding a female celeb to kiss during this year's live telecast of the awards show on Sept. 7. Who does she really, really want?

Lindsay Lohan!

"Producers are really working hard on it," a source exclusively reveals to me. "They'd love it to be Lindsay, and they're actually going to ask."

Like that will ever happen. Even if Ms. Lohan has signed on to be a presenter, I highly doubt she's gonna be lockin' lips with the "I Kissed a Girl" hitmaker anytime soon.

But if Ms. Perry can't find anyone, there's always Tila Tequila!


It isn't edgy or controversial if you have to ask beg for takers, DUMB WHORE. Has she run out of femme ~lesbian fantasy~ actresses/musicians to namecheck yet? I would suggest that Rosie O'Donnell offer to give her a nice big kiss, but I wouldn't want to do that to Rosie.


John Lennon Biopic in the works...

LONDON -- The story of John Lennon is headed for the big screen with "Nowhere Boy," a biopic that will be directed by visual artist Sam Taylor-Wood.

Produced by U.K. shingle Ecosse Films, the script from "Control" screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh will focus on the Beatle's childhood and subsequent journey to icon status. Filming is set to take place on location in Lennon's hometown on Liverpool.

Greenhalgh's script details the story of Lennon as a lonely teenager growing up as his aunt and the mother who gave him up fight for his love. His only escape is music, art and his fateful friendship with Paul McCartney.

Casting for the major roles "is under way," the backers said of the project that is being co-developed with the U.K. Film Council.

Sales and finance house HanWay Films is handling worldwide sales and will be trying to get sellers to tune in at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.

"The women in John's early life truly shaped who he became," Taylor-Wood said, "and the strengths and weaknesses of their relationships are central to this film."

Ecosse and HanWay also worked together on "Becoming Jane" and "Brideshead Revisited."


This could either go really good, or really really bad. Also, what is your favourite song sung by John?

Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester on Being Bad

The actress tells us about Season 2 and returning to Entourage.
by Eric Goldman

August 29, 2008 - Gossip Girl: Season 2 debuts this Monday on The CW, and I recently had the chance to sit down with one of the show's stars, Leighton Meester.

Meester and I discussed what it's been like being part of the Gossip PR blitz this past year; what's to come in Season 2 for her character Blair; and the actresses upcoming guest appearance on Entourage, reprising a role she played in Season 1 of that HBO series as a Britney Spears type pop-singer.

'Jonas Brothers tried to play it cool, but it definitely seemed as if there’s something more than just friendship going on.'

They obviously wanted to be photographed by paparazzi if they went to TAO. More pictures under. It looks like it might have been a triple date. Kevin was there also.. with Danielle?!

Simon says: "Idol will be more interesting and controversial than last year."

The news article covers a few topics about American Idol: a new judge (addition, not subtraction, guys), previous idol people going to the BIG SCREEN and BROADWAY, how David Archuleta bested David Cook (snore), and something about Sanjaya. But the thing that caught my eye is what Simon said (you may have to scroll down if you check the article, it's the last one there) because this last season had so much controversy that got muffled by the powers that be (like Archie's rumoured boyfriend; don't know if that was true or not, just got it from someone else).

The race this weekend features "Grey's Anatomy" star and race car driver Patrick Dempsey. He says he is a serious racer, but fellow drivers still tease him for his "McDreamy" status.

"There are all kinds of things we can't say on T.V. that we put on his car and suit and in his locker," said driver Joe Foster. "He is definitely one of the team here."

If you'd like to meet Patrick Dempsey, he's signing autographs from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturday.

Doherty: 'Spelling's A Liar'

Former Beverly Hills, 90210 actress Shannen Doherty has branded Tori Spelling a liar after she claimed the actress had engaged in a fistfight with co-star Jennie Garth. Spelling unleashed her wrath on Doherty in her new tome sTori Telling, calling the actress "arrogant" and a "bad influence" on the set of their hit 1990s show. And in the book, Spelling claimed Doherty had such a bad relationship with Garth, their on-set disagreements resulted in a full-on fight.

But Doherty, who will team up with alleged sparring partner Garth in the new Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off, states Spellings tales are false.

She tells, "We never did (have a fight). I think I would remember Jennie's fist connecting with a part of my body or a part of my face".

"It just goes to show you how people will lie."

Spelling recently pulled out of updated Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off 90210 shortly after Doherty signed on to join the cast.

Too much Repo!

When first looking at "Repo! The Genetic Opera," certain folks might tuck their tails between their legs and run, but look closer and you'll find a dedicated cast and crew who ooze love for this project distributed by Lionsgate.

Directing is "Saw II, III, IV" helmer Darren Lynn Bousman (not the fifth and latest film), well fitted for the task at hand of capturing the essence of the musical-adapted film.

True, there's a lot of media attention surrounding Paris Hilton. You'll probably be asking yourself "Why Paris Hilton out of every actress to fit the role?" In truth, after speaking to Ms. Hilton at the interview, I found her to be very down-to-earth and a much more calm person than she may have been in her previous years. There's a certain shyness to Ms. Hilton despite being in the limelight so often and, turns out, she's actually a very sweet person.

Alexa Vega has certainly matured since her "Spy Kids" flicks, gone is the little girl but the bubbly personality looks in-tact. She's well-spoken and comes off as an intelligent girl with a keen eye on her future.

At first it's Darren Smith (writer) and Alexa Vega (Shilo Wallace). After which, they are followed by Bill Moseley (Luigi Largo), Paris Hilton (Amber Sweet), Darren Lynn Bousman (Director), Terrance Zdunich (Grave Robber and Co-Writer) and Nivek Ogre.

Sophie Monk Shows Off Her Legs in Shorts

Sophie Monk’s wearing shorts, I guess she’s slowly trying to get sluttier and sluttier because we all know that girls who wear anything above the knees are just asking to get fucked, it’s been a key defense in rape cases for decades, and the reason she is doing it is because her self esteem was raped when her boyfriend left her for Paris Hilton, that’s kinda like when your favorite stripper gets mad at you for getting a lap dance with the old fat chick no one in their right mind wants because she leaves shit stains on your freshly pressed khakis or some shit. It’s going from good to bad, leaving the good thinking they are worse than the bad and when the bad is Paris Hilton shit’s detrimental to your mental health, at least that’s what I am thinking. It’s kind of the way every guy feels when they find out that I banged their girlfriend at some point in their life, they feel like something is wrong with them for dating something that got with me and it always gives me a laugh because I know it true and when you get over the truth hurting bullshit, you realize that in the end you still got laid, and that’s a whole lot more rewarding than people thinking you’re disgusting.

Obama, the new JFK..
Current mood: pleased

I just got finished watching Obama speak tonight (got it on tivo) and knew I had to write a blog, 11:30pm and exhausted from flights! This could not wait. I was moved to tears more than once throughout his speech. As I watched history unfold before my eyes, a woman running for president...a half black man being picked to run...I remembered asking my Grandmother and Mother about what it was like to watch JFK and Martin Luther king speak. How did it feel knowing you were a part of history? They explained how they felt, and I wished I could feel that too one day. Well, that day has come for me. I feel proud to be a part of this country. I feel honored to know that my generation does not remember racism in the 60's....let alone the 1860's! Racism is waaaay out of fashion. Our country is ready to progress, to change and morph into something better than what it is, and I am part of that!

I donated to Obama, I NEVER would have donated money to ANYONE in politics....EVER! Yet, for some reason, I found myself wanting to help in anyway I could. I felt like he understood the working class(my family)and knew we had to change our politics from this same old shit. I knew it was time to put a stop to Bush's reign. Voting in someone who voted for 90% of what Bush did(Mccain) was not the way. Can Obama do all he promised? No, he can't...they never can. But, do I believe he will do everything in his power to achieve his dreams? Yes, I really do. Rome is falling, but I don't think it's time yet. I am proud to say I have stood by this man since day one.(Voted him into Senate) I can't wait for the day when my own children get to ask me.. "What was it like when you watched Obama make his speech?"

And for all you right winged friends of mine who think by shitting all over Obama here you will sway me.....think again. I have spent careful thought and consideration on this man for years. I have learned all I possibly can about the man, and he thrills me to no end!

PS-When I compare Obama to JFK, I compare on how they influenced us...not who they are as people!


Reese Witherspoon Steps Up For Women

Reese Witherspoon gets shocked by the Brazilian flag as she promotes ‘Speak Out Against Domestic Violence,’ a joint campaign launched in 2004 by the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) and the Avon cosmetics company in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Thursday.

The 32-year-old actress commented, “There isn’t a woman in the world that doesn’t have a friend or a partner who’s actually experiencing some sort of violence against them, so I think although domestic violence hasn’t happened to me personally, I certainly know women who are dealing with this struggle every day.”

Reese continued on by saying that domestic violence, “affects women who are famous, who are not famous, women who have money, women who have no money. This is an issue that crosses all boundaries and it certainly affects everyone.”

Rock of Ages, the Musical

The rising nostalgia for the 1980s, its timeless music, and the classic "hair bands" whose sonic power filled the airwaves and the clubs on L.A.'s Sunset Strip have led to the creation of ROCK OF AGES, a rock musical set in Hollywood in 1986, when it was all about big chords, big dreams, and... big hair!

The show explores the pursuit of dreams: some come true, some are cut short and some change along the way. No matter what, the persistence of the human heart is what Don't Stop Believing!

Um. I am already having trouble believing. Check out the lead ROCKER dude.

Gary Oldman talking crazy yet again.

Despite having lived in Hollywood for more than 20 years, Gary Oldman says he has no desire to be really famous.

"It's a whole other career," says the British-born actor. "You have to really really lust for it. You have to really want to be famous. I've never had a publicist. I haven't got the energy to be famous. I've got to have another career being famous. It's another job."

And despite having being nominated for a Best Acting Bafta and an Emmy gong, Gary says he isn't too bothered about being getting an Oscar nod.

"You've got to be on shows and magazines and then you've got to promote, and you've got to do so much if you really want that Oscar," he says. "I don't covet it. I've never really coveted the thing, because you've really got to work.

As much as someone will say, 'I'm a serious actor, leave me alone,' they're still out there doing all that stuff."


And official stills from his appearance on The View last month have just been released:
