Mara Wilson talks growing up in Hollywood

The article is an edited extract from her book 'Where Am I Now: True Stories Of Girlhood And Accidental Fame'

- Her parents never pushed her into acting and always tried to keep her grounded

- Remembers the criticism she got for 'Miracle On 34th Street' and how the film critics would rather complain about her than directors and producers who treated children like dolls (she talks in the article the changes the director made to make her 'look cute')

- Talks about how her puberty had been discussed on set without her knowledge, realized that when the director asked her to wear a sports bra

- Searched for her name on the internet when she was 12 and got results such as: foot fetish, click here for nude pictures, she's doing a lot of movies now because soon enough she'll have boobs but still can't legally show them, etc.

- At 13 people stopped calling her cute. She was 'odd looking', got a script to play a fat girl (and would wear big clothes to make her look bigger)

- Mentions not being 'Hollywood pretty'; real world was more forgiving but her appearance anxieties were always there. She did a "where are they now?" interview at some point but they didn't air because they said she looked 'too pale'

Derek Cianfrance's wife writes an op-ed about critics being mean to her husband's flop movie

Shannon Plumb, wife of The Light Between Oceans director Derek Cianfrance is bitter that her husband's film flopped so she wrote an op-ed about it.

Some choice quotes:

No one was supposed to post a review until a few hours before its premiere. But there were five reviews up, one by Variety, and it was two more days till the premiere. The critics had broken the embargo. They were testing their words like North Korea testing atomic bombs. “Look what I can do,” they seemed to say. As with every bit of news today, bad stuff gets attention. The bad reviews were up. The movie hadn’t even opened yet.

The critics are not a voice for the people, yet they can affect the reputation and success of the movie. By writing early and with vehemence against The Light Between Oceans, it probably lost a couple million dollars in its first weekend. The first weekend is still the most important weekend for the movie. It determines the life a movie will have in theaters.

Do you ever blame your floppage on the critics, ONTD?

Namie Amuro Releases Cover of Double A-Side Single "Dear Diary/Fighter" + Song Previews

Namie Amuro will be releasing a new double-A side single on October 26 entitled "Deary Diary/Fighter". Both songs will be featured on the upcoming-action Death Note prequel film "Death Note: Light up the NEW world". Dear Diary in particular will be used as the theme song while Fighter is an insert song for the movie. Namie describes the two songs as songs that deals with having strength despite how the two songs are very different from each other. Movie producer Sato Takahiro chose Namie Amuro for the theme song because he believes that Death Note has established itself worldwide (Previous Death Note movies used songs from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Lenny Kravitz for international appeal), so he wanted to showcase a song representative of Japan now that international appeal isn't a concern. The single comes in three editions: Regular CD, CD + DVD, and Limited Edition (Tracklist has yet to be released). Covers can be seen in the cut below.
Collapse )

Yesterday, a mini-series "Death Note NEW GENERATION" produced to promote the movie was uploaded to Hulu Japan. Trailers for both the mini-series and movie release contains snippets of both songs.

Terry Gross asks Abby Wambach if she needed to have sex with men to decide she's a lesbian

Terry Gross, host of NPR's 'Fresh Air', asked former U.S. soccer player Abby Wambach about her sexuality and it went like this:

"I want to ask you more about comprehending your sexuality, your sexual orientation. You’d had a boyfriend in high school; you went to the prom together. You were considered like the jock couple of Rochester, New York. Was it helpful in the long run to have had a boyfriend, to have had sex with a boy so that you could know with more certainty, ‘No, I love women?'"

To which Abby replied:
[Spoiler (click to open)]
"I think the person that I am, I’m kind of one of those people and maybe people get that from the book, I will pretty much try anything once. Because I can’t have an opinion about something that I don’t know of or that I haven’t experienced. And that’s kind of the same thing that went into sorting my sexuality out. Going to Catholic high school, Catholic grade school when I was younger, believing in this God that was basically telling me that the feelings I might be having internally were sinful. I was like ‘Alright, I gotta try this other life out. I gotta see about.’ And I tried, you know. I did what I was ‘supposed to do’ as a kid, and I dated the boy and I experienced the boy and as soon as I met and started dating my first girlfriend, I then got it. I understood what I was missing all along. And this is no disrespect to my boyfriend in high school; this is just like more of a knowing. I met this woman and I was like ‘Oh, I get it now. This is how you’re supposed to feel.'"

Terry also asked her about Catholic guilt she might have had and if she had any idea that she was 'sinning' when she had her first girlfriend.

You can listen to the whole interview here (the question is asked around 22min in). She's promoting her memoir, she talks about her upbringing, soccer, coming out, divorce, DUI, addiction problems, etc.

straight people, do you usually get asked if you ever had sex with someone of the same gender to decide if you're really straight?

Women reign on Emmy favorites, but few are involved in making them

On screen TV has more diversity than the Oscars, with shows such as Black-ish, Transparent, Master of None and The People v OJ Simpson, but behind the scenes the industry remains a man’s world.

The Guardian analyzed the gender diversity of four important behind-the-scenes roles on the latest seasons of the shows nominated for Best Drama, Best Comedy and Best Limited Series: director, writer, cinematographer, and editor.

The research showed that only 30.4% of episodes were directed by women. Cinematography, only 7.1%.

'Roots' and 'The People v OJ Simpson' didn’t have a single woman director. Last time 'Game of Thrones' had a female director was season 4 and a female writer was season 3.

‘Fargo’ has only had men for directing and writing in its two seasons.

‘The Night Manager’, ‘Transparent', ‘American Crime’ and ‘Modern Family’ had women directors for 50% or more of their episodes.

It’s a self-perpetuating machine - the pool of people that get hired come out of the pool of people that have been hired.

When asked about the lack of female directors, one of ‘Better Call Saul’ showrunners, Peter Gould, said that it’s difficult to book women to direct because everyone is trying to hire the same ones.

Michael J McDonald, executive producer of American Crime, on the other hand dismisses that and says that it’s easy because there are hundreds of working women directors, and if you have 22 eps a season, he could name 22 top-notch female directors.

Gwen Stefani-chan strikes again, 'Kuu Kuu Harajuku' cartoon coming soon


  • Racially ambiguous グエン スッテファ二 (pronounced Gwen Stefani for you non-cultured folks) will have a cartoon show on Nickelodeon called 'Kuu Kuu Harajuku'

  • The cartoon revives 'Love, Angel, Music, Baby' as characters in a band called HJ5 which another called called 'G' (I wonder who that could be based off?)

  • The show is meant to air in early October, it was already in Australia for over a year

  • None of the characters are japanese nor the cartoon have anything to do with Japan

  • Gwen-chan clings to the word 'harajuku' as if it's her tsudere nii-chan

  • She could've avoided all controvesy by removing the word 'Harajuku' in the title, because the show has nothing to do with it

  • Baka Gwen-chan has previously faced backlash for using asian women as silent props, prepetuating racial stereotypes, dehumanizing them by giving them names such as Love, Angel, Music, Baby

  • Was also in an similar incident in 2012, when No Doubt came back and the music video involved the Japanese popstar dancing in a teepee and wearing traditional clothing


ONTD-minasan, do you think Gwen-chan should say 'gomen' for being insensitive?

karla shares a very moving essay about immigrating from mexico


in honor of hispanic heritage month, karla has written a powerful essay for pop sugar detailing her experiences growing up as in immigrant in the us. karla was born in cuba to a cuban mother and mexican father, when she was around 7 years old, she moved to miami with her mother, leaving her father — who met up with them a year later.

"with a couple hundred dollars, the clothes on our backs, no family in the united states, and no clue of what was going to happen next, that's exactly what we did. like my mom said, "i don't know where i'm going, but i can't stay here." and that was enough. why were we packing up our stuff? why was my grandma hugging me tighter than usual? where were we going? "we're going to disney world!" that's what my mom told me when we were crossing the border."

""i am so proud to be cuban-mexican. this country was built on immigrants. people who were brave enough to start over. how strong we are to leave behind everything we know in hopes of something better. we are not fearless, we just have dreams bigger than our fears. we jump. we run. we swim, we move mountains, we do whatever it takes. and so next time, when anybody wants to tell you they want to build a "wall" on our border, remember behind that wall is struggle, determination, hunger. behind that wall, could be the next cure for cancer, the next scientist, the next artist, the next drummer, the next anything they work hard enough to become!"

'Birth of the Dragon' a story 'inspired' by true Bruce Lee events

  • The main white character does not exist irl

  • Asian mystical flying

  • IRL the fight between Bruce and the monk was private, Bruce's wife was present, She is not in this movie

  • White guy gets asian girl

  • IRL the monk wanted to fight Bruce because he was teaching non-chinese people kungfu not because Bruce was arrogant

TL;DR - Stonewall (the movie), the asian experience

ONTD, have you ever wandered into Chinatown and found all the answers to your problems? Did it involve chicken feet? Perhaps chinese medicine?
