The Year’s Greatest Gay/Straight Bromances

2014 has been the year of the gay/straight bromance in more ways than one. And although this year wasn’t the first time we’ve seen them, there’s no denying the obvious uptick in these unique kinds of bromances in Hollywood.
Now that straight men are embracing gay porn, gay men, and gay(isn) bedroom activities, it’s time to recognize the men on the forefront of this sexual revolution, the not-so elusive Gay Straight Guys of Hollywood.

Harry Styles and Nick Grimshaw
Some of the first One Direction gay rumors (yes, there are many) began when British media took note of frontman Harry Styles’ close bromance with openly gay BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw. The two were spotted hanging out an awful lot in 2012, wearing each other’s clothes and sipping from the same straws, and were officially placed under speculation when Harry started dating professional beard Taylor Swift.
The rumors became so heavy that Styles set the record straight in an interview with the Mirror, saying “we’re not dating, no. We’re just friends.” He went on to dismiss claims that he was perhaps bisexual: “Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not.”

Ariana Grande a 'monster' about her hair at Marie Claire shoot

image
Ariana Grande’s diva behavior continues.

We’re told the “Problem” singer, who will only be photographed from her left side, was a problem on her Marie Claire cover shoot. Sources say Grande, who came with her mom, arrived late, was a “monster” about her hair and treated everyone terribly.

A mag rep said, “She did not postpone the shoot and nothing about her arrival time was a surprise to us. She was professional and accommodating and she posed for photos with editor Anne Fulenwider’s kids.”

Hope Solo releases statement about The Fappening and domestic violence charges

It is extremely sad and unfortunate that the rights of so many women were violated by the unauthorized release of private photographs. This act goes beyond the bounds of human decency and, as such, I stand united with all the women affected and am exploring every option to protect my privacy. In addition, while I understand that the public desires more information regarding the allegations against me, I continue to maintain my innocence against these charges. And, once all the facts come to light and the legal process is concluded, I am confident that I will be fully exonerated.

Viral marketing firm was behind "EmmaYouAreNext.com"



A threat against actress Emma Watson in response to a gender equality speech she made at the United Nations now appears to have been a viral marketing stunt.

The Harry Potter star and UN women's ambassador delivered an impassioned speech at the launch of the UN's HeForShe campaign, which calls for men to support women in striving for gender equality.

Users of the online community 4chan, which previously leaked private nude photos of female celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton, created a thread linking to a webpage called "EmmaYouAreNext.com".

Louis CK performed a secret show in New Orleans on Tuesday night

louis_ck

"Louis CK at Beast tonight. Not a joke. Can't be advertised." The text came at 2:25 p.m.



Comedy Beast is a free, weekly stand-up show hosted by local comics Andrew Polk and Cyrus Cooper in the Howlin' Wolf Den, the cozy satellite of the cavernous music venue on South Peters Street. The back room of the Den, where Beast roosts every Tuesday night, comfortably holds about 40 people. This Tuesday (Sept. 23), a few seats were reserved for special guests: namely, Louis CK and friends (among them, Bryan Cranston and John Goodman).



The phrase "standing room only" doesn't do justice to the swell of bodies who crammed into the Den because they'd heard a rumor that one of America's top comedians might drop in for an unassuming Tuesday night set.



CK, Cranston and Goodman are in town reportedly filming "Trumbo," the Jay Roach-directed biopic about the screenwriter and novelist who was imprisoned and blacklisted during the 1940s-50s.


Another text came at 5:05. "Louis just canceled."

Dario Argento getting ready to direct Christmas horror film "The Sandman"


Financiers and distributors attending the Fantasia Fest’s ‘industry rendezvous’ next month will be presented with the usual slate of films that need their backing. The most exciting of these, perhaps, is a new serial killer movie to be directed by Dario Argento. A very potent combination.

And the algebra keeps getting better as The Sandman will not only be a horror film, but also a Christmas movie and that’s very often been an appealing crossover. It might be hard to run in the snow, but it certainly shows off all that red blood nicely.

'Divergent' Actor Theo James to Star in Fifth 'Underworld' Movie



Theo James will be going back to Underworld.The Divergent actor is attached as the lead in the fifth film in the vampire action franchise, which Lakeshore Entertainment is currently developing.

James, who played a vampire named David in 2013's Underworld: Awakening, will be the central character in the new film, which is not a reboot but rather an expansion of the existing universe. Kate Beckinsale, who starred in the previous films, will likely not be returning. Sources say there was an option on James because of his work on the previous film, and he'll star opposite two new female characters. Casting is underway for those roles, with plans to start shooting in the spring.

Cory Goodman has been hired to write the script, as The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported. Lakeshore's Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing.

Norman Reedus Appreciation Post

Norman Reedus Talks Walking Dead, Turning Down Jennifer Love Hewitt's Heartbreakers, Sharing Son With Helena Christensen

1411566632_norman-reedus-gq-cover-467

Daryl Dixon may have never been! The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus reveals in GQ's first-ever Age Issue that he once considered giving up acting. Luckily, the 45-year-old actor decided to overlook some films he wasn't very proud of and was eventually cast in a show about a bunch of killing zombies — giving him the most-talked about role of his career, not to mention unexpected sex symbol status.

"I really matured a lot in my mind and became a happier person in this job, because I really like this job, and I like the people I work with, and I like the environment I work in," Reedus told the mag. "The cuts on my forehead, and the bruises, and the black eyes, it doesn't matter; it's awesome. I think that mentality has matured me a lot in the past couple years."

Reedus has shown off his dramatic flare while starring in the AMC smash hit since 2010. The show also satisfies his thirst for the dark side. "Even with photography and artwork, I've really liked having grotesque things and finding beauty in them. I've always been a fan of horror films, and I like aggressive music, and I like aggressive people—they all kind of were interesting to me," he told the mag. "I mean, I really don't see myself ever being, or wanting to be, in some sort of light romantic comedy about nothing."

Perhaps this is why the Florida native practically laughed at his team when he was offered to play Jennifer Love Hewitt's boyfriend in 2001's Heartbreakers.

"When that came around at the time, my agents at the time were, 'They like you for this part, and it's a Jennifer Love Hewitt movie.' And I'm like, 'Well, what do I do?' And they're, 'You're her boyfriend,'" he recalled. "And I go, 'Well, do I rape her? Do I kill her? What do I do?' And they go, 'You're her sweet boyfriend.' And I was like, 'No! Absolutely not!' But yeah, I just assumed I had to rape and kill her."

Blind Item: Notes on a Love Triangle



She started out as a song girl, then acted, keeps trying to do both. At the beginning it was promising but mostly, over the last few years, it’s been a series of disappointments. Personally though, she seemed to have it together. A steady relationship, a solid commitment, no drama…

Or maybe it’s because we weren’t paying attention.

She and her playing partner have been having problems for a while. They’ve been trying hard to work it out. But that might not turn out so well if she finds out that he hooked up with a much more successful song girl, someone with a similar early sound and origin, though that’s evolving now. Despite her many changes, contrived or organic, this was probably not the intended image.

Tony Stewart's fate



Tony Stewart struck and killed a young driver named Kevin Ward Jr. The incident began when both drivers charged in to Turn 2, and Ward’s vehicle hit the wall, cut a tire, and spun out. The caution flag came out, as it does after a wreck, and the rest of the field slowed down to allow Ward time and space to get his wounded car off the track. But instead of firing it back up, Ward exited the vehicle. He appeared to be looking to confront Stewart, who he likely blamed for the wreck. A couple of cars whizzed by the clearly incensed driver, but Stewart’s car hit Ward, sending the 20-year-old to his tragic death.

“Say you were playing on normal difficulty, and all difficulty in Inquisition means tougher than Origins, definitely tougher than Dragon Age 2,” said Cameron.

“So, each different player has different thresholds of how much pressure they can handle separately.”

Last Mitford sister, Deborah, Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, dies at 94

Deborah, the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, and the last surviving Mitford sister, has died aged 94.

She died in the morning, said press officers for Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, where she was chatelaine.

The Mitford sisters' activity fascinated - and sometimes scandalised - British society in the 1940s.

One of her sisters, Unity, was a friend of Hitler and another, Diana, the second wife of British fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley.

But Deborah was more focused on her home life. Nicknamed the "housewife duchess", she made Chatsworth one of the most successful and profitable stately homes in England.

Former NFL Player Chris Kluwe Bakes Brownies Shirtless In Support Of Gender Equality

9-24-2014 2-59-49 PM

The outspoken activist and former NFL player took to Twitter last night to share his support for gender equality and the #HeforShe campaign kicked off by actress and UN Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson. After tweeting that he was about to "make brownies with minimal clothing on", Kluwe then tweeted an image of his bare torso with "#HeforShe" spelled out in brownie batter: "Had some leftover brownie batter. Kinda spilled it on myself. Oops. #heforshe." Kluwe elaborated further on his support for the new campaign:

Why do I support #heforshe? Because I have a wife, a sister, daughters, a mother; and they are just as capable and valuable as I am.

Miles Teller says Divergent made him feel "dead inside"; immediately gets amnesia



The onscreen passion for drumming that Miles Teller demonstrates in Whiplash is completely authentic, as the actor had a personal fervor for refocusing his own career, following a particularly tangential project: Divergent.

"When I first read Whiplash, I was feeling dead inside," Teller told W magazine of the film festival favorite, in which he is berated by his art college professor (J.K. Simmons) to become the next great name in jazz.

"I didn’t have an interesting part [in Divergent], and I’d taken the film for business reasons: It was the first movie I’d done that was going to have an international audience. I called my agent and said, 'This sucks.' He told me about Whiplash."

Teller's rep issued the following response to The Hollywood Reporter regarding the Divergent-related comments in W: "Accustomed to being more involved in the process of filmmaking, Miles regrets those words. He does value his relationship with Lionsgate and his participation in the franchise."

Divergent was lame, but probably shouldn't shit talk a franchise when you're about to film the sequel. Oop....

TWD POST: Andy Lincoln and Reedus preview S5 + new trailer



To any outsider setting foot on the Griffin, Georgia, set of The Walking Dead, the sense of heightened security and secrecy is immediately apparent. Production assistants string giant tarps across the entrance to a small alley, shielding any on-camera action from the eyes of dozens of gawkers who have parked themselves across the street in the 90-degree heat holding homemade signs professing their love for AMC's hit zombie drama. ("I <3 Daryl Dixon" is one popular sentiment.) Brief glimpses of the show's stars elicit the kind of eardrum-tearing screams usually reserved for the latest boy band.

Steven Soderbergh turns Raiders of the Lost Ark into a black and white silent film w/ a techno score

(Note: This posting is for educational purposes only.)

Watch film at source.

I’m assuming the phrase “staging” came out of the theatre world, but it’s equally at home (and useful) in the movie world, since the term (roughly defined) refers to how all the various elements of a given scene or piece are aligned, arranged, and coordinated. In movies the role of editing adds something unique: the opportunity to extend and/or expand a visual (or narrative) idea to the limits of one’s imagination—a crazy idea that works today is tomorrow’s normal.

I value the ability to stage something well because when it’s done well its pleasures are huge, and most people don’t do it well, which indicates it must not be easy to master (it’s frightening how many opportunities there are to do something wrong in a sequence or a group of scenes. Minefields EVERYWHERE. Fincher said it: there’s potentially a hundred different ways to shoot something but at the end of the day there’s really only two, and one of them is wrong). Of course understanding story, character, and performance are crucial to directing well, but I operate under the theory a movie should work with the sound off, and under that theory, staging becomes paramount (the adjective, not the studio. although their logo DOES appear on the front of this…).

So I want you to watch this movie and think only about staging, how the shots are built and laid out, what the rules of movement are, what the cutting patterns are. See if you can reproduce the thought process that resulted in these choices by asking yourself: why was each shot—whether short or long—held for that exact length of time and placed in that order? Sounds like fun, right? It actually is. To me. Oh, and I’ve removed all sound and color from the film, apart from a score designed to aid you in your quest to just study the visual staging aspect. Wait, WHAT? HOW COULD YOU DO THIS? Well, I’m not saying I’m like, ALLOWED to do this, I’m just saying this is what I do when I try to learn about staging, and this filmmaker forgot more about staging by the time he made his first feature than I know to this day (for example, no matter how fast the cuts come, you always know exactly where you are—that’s high level visual math shit).

At some point you will say to yourself or someone THIS LOOKS AMAZING IN BLACK AND WHITE and it’s because Douglas Slocombe shot THE LAVENDER HILL MOB and the THE SERVANT and his stark, high-contrast lighting style was eye-popping regardless of medium.

Kelly Clarkson Hints at New Album






It’s been three years since Kelly Clarkson released a studio album, but it looks like the wait for new music might finally be over. The songstress tweeted a couple of hints that indicate a brand-new record will be ready by next year.

he also replied to fan’s message, asking if there would be any surprise collaborations on the upcoming project by saying, “Yes.I’m so proud of my next album! Might have a special guest on the album ….maybe :) Doesn’t come out until early next year.”
The songstress certainly hasn’t had much time to think about new music. Clarkson, who wed Brandon Blackstock last year, welcomed baby girl River Rose in June.
Clarkson’s last studio album, ‘Stronger,’ spawned two multi-platinum hits; ‘Mr. Know It All’ and the album’s title track, which soared to the top of the charts. She also released her Christmas album, ‘Wrapped in Red,’ last year.
Clarkson currently appears on Trisha Yearwood‘s latest single, ‘PrizeFighter.’ She has also performed the song with Yearwood on select dates on Garth Brooks‘ current tour.
