Jodie Foster is a Cool Mom

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Jodie Foster gave a rare interview in which she was asked about how she raises her two sons, Charlie, 16, and Kit, 13, out of the spotlight.

The very private star says that...

--Her own mom was very cautious, so she allows her own sons the freedom to make lots of mistakes

--She doesn't believe in her own hype, which prevents her from developing a huge ego

--She deliberately tries to live a normal life away from cameras and paparazzi


She is very picky about which projects she does, and rarely acts anymore. She directed two episodes of Orange is the New Black and will soon debut her fourth film as a director, the thriller Money Monster starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

In 2013, Jodie (sort of) publicly came out as gay, and in 2014 married her girlfriend of a year, Alexandra Hedison

W's Best Film Performances of 2015

In 2015, the world was in turmoil, and Hollywood was looking for a happy ending. Whether the topic was sexual identity (Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett in the midcentury lesbian love story Carol; Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriguez exploring L.A.’s transgender underworld in Tangerine) or post­apocalyptic politics (Charlize Theron in the manic epic Mad Max: Fury Road) or immigration (Saoirse Ronan and Domhnall Gleeson in the wonderfully old-fashioned Brooklyn), almost all of the movies last year ended on a positive, romantic note. Wrongs were righted in Spotlight, which took on the abuses in the Catholic Church. And even murkier films like Sicario, which costarred Benicio Del Toro in a story about the unwinnable Mexican drug wars, or The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino’s savage snow Western, celebrated vivid moments of triumph.

And that’s just the beginning. On the following pages, we spotlight performers who achieved an extraordinary mix of the unique and the universal. These portraits, which were shot in Los Angeles, New York, and London, are revealing and evocative character ­studies—movies unto themselves.

South African Chief criticizes Beyoncé's alleged Saartjie Baartman project

In case you missed the post yesterday, Beyoncé is allegedly not only starring in but writing a film about Saartjie Baartman. This is following news in December that she had been taking acting lessons and was "looking for an iconic dramatic role" and that she wanted to "make a film that’s socially relevant to African American rights."

ONTD wasn't alone in questioning this project as last night Chief Jean Burgess, a chief of the Ghonaqua First Peoples, was questioned by News24 in South Africa about the superstar taking on the project.

"She lacks the basic human dignity to be worthy of writing Sarah's story, let alone playing the part," Chief Burgess told News24.

She also questioned if Beyoncé considered how the movie would affect the KhoiKhoi women who are alive today referring to the potential film as "a mistake of great magnitude". She continued questioning why Beyoncé chose Baartman as the subject of the film, claiming that Beyoncé had no right to tell her story.

"I can only see arrogance in her attempt to tell a story that is not her’s to tell," she stated.

Chief Burgess along with Gamtkwa Khoisan Council member Kobus Reichert don't seem to have a problem with a movie about Baartman existing. They expressed that they feel the subject matter needs to be handled with respect and understanding of the culture and that the community of the Eastern Cape should be involved, things they don't necessarily think will happen with Beyoncé taking the lead.

Hasbro releases statement explaining why Rey wasn't included in The Force Awakens Monopoly


In case you don't know there is currently a The Force Awakens movie tie in version of Monopoly on the stands. There has been a lot of talk about the game on social media lately due to the fact that Rey, they star of the film, was excluded from the game. The playable pieces include Luke, Finn, Kylo Renn and Darth Vader who interestingly enough isn't even in the movie. After being bombarded with people tweeting #WheresRey Polygon reports that Hasbro finally released a statement as to why she was excluded and that reason is apparently 'because spoilers'.

"The Star Wars: Monopoly game was released in September, months before the movie's release. Rey was not included to avoid revealing a key plot line that she takes on Kylo Ren and joins the Rebel Alliance," Hasbro claimed in a statement released to Entertainment Weekly.

They also claim that they plan on releasing more Rey-centric merchandise in the future.

This could have also been avoided if they included more than four game pieces like, you know, most Monopoly sets. Also the claim that Rey being a good guy being a spoiler seems like a stretch. If only there was some kind of item featured heavily in the promo that Rey carried that they could have given her figure...

Rachel Platten's BA in International Relations helped her understand how to connect with people

The pugnacious chanteuse RACHEL PLATTEN sat down with Justine Magazine to talk about her breakout hit "Fight Song," her new album "Wildfire," and how her BA in International Relations helped her understand how to connect with people. Rachel decided to study International Relations because she always wanted to bring people together and help countries that might not understand each other find common ground. She went on, saying that her degree helped her accomplish this in a way she wasn't intending: through her music.



Rachel also discussed some of her go-tos for 2016. She said that her go-to song for when she's feeling down is Bleachers' "I Wanna Get Better." She also described how her go-to pick-me-up snack would be a smoothie with some kind of vegan protein, or a kombucha drink. Rachel's go-to beauty product is an oxygenating spray from Biologique, and her go-to BFF night would consist of a lot of giggling, wearing onesies on the couch, and doing nothing.

SyFy orders Season 2 for The Expanse



Syfy is closing out the year with good news: their new space opera series, The Expanse, is getting a second season. The show, which stars Thomas Jane and is based on a book series by James S.A. Corey, has been doing very well since its premiere, getting rave reviews, including from us. So this really isn't any surprise.

"The Expanse is firing on all cylinders creatively, building a passionate fan base among viewers and critics alike, and delivering on Syfy’s promise of smart, provocative science fiction entertainment. We can’t wait to see where the story takes us in season two,” said Dave Howe, President, Syfy and Chiller.

Set 200 years in the future, The Expanse follows the case of a missing young woman that brings a hardened detective (Thomas Jane) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait) together in a race across the solar system that will expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

The 13-episode second season is expected to air in early 2017.

So happy to hear this and really hoping this show gets more fans! Again, I highly recommend this to folks around here if you're looking for a good scifi show. Excerpt from another article :

There was a time—a long time—when every new science fiction TV series raised the same question: Is it as good as the first Battlestar Galactica miniseries? And always the answer was no. Until Syfy released the first four episodes of The Expanse, a rewardingly complex new series about interplanetary tensions after humans have colonized the solar system.

Scifi has all four episodes so far available to watch online, as well as being available on On-Demand! Show airs regularly at 10pm PST Tuesdays on Syfy.

- Says he can appreciate what a struggle it can be for those without his credentials, especially in London, where the price of a one-bedroom flat can reach in excess of $4,200 per month.

- Redmayne's parents lived in the capitol, so he didn't have to pay rent when he left university.
