Natalie Portman on the Pay Gap and Women Directors

natalie-portman-ashton-kutcher-cf711760-d0d9-42b1-b8a8-fca2728c1461

In a recent interview, Portman revealed that she was paid less than her male co-star in a film where she was a producer. “Ashton Kutcher was paid three times as much as me on No Strings Attached. I knew and I went along with it because there's this thing with ‘quotes’ in Hollywood. His [quote] was three times higher than mine so they said he should get three times more. I wasn't as pissed as I should have been. I mean, we get paid a lot, so it's hard to complain, but the disparity is crazy."

She also added that the disparity in Hollywood is especially bad compared to other professions. "Compared to men, in most professions, women make 80 cents to the dollar,” she added. “In Hollywood, we are making 30 cents to the dollar.”

For her upcoming film where she plays Ruth Bader Ginseurg, Portman insisted on a female director.

I don't think women and men are more or less capable [as directors], we just have a clear issue with women not having opportunities,” she added. “We need to be part of the solution, not perpetuating the problem. As this story is specifically about gender discrimination, I was like, ‘How dare we not hire a female.’

Hopefully this works out better than her previous attempts to get female directors on projects.

"Big Little Lies" cast on the February cover(s) of Elle



"Take two megawatt executive producers, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. Add a pair of Hollywood's most zeitgeisty twentysomethings, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz. Throw in a blockbuster novel about a group of upper-middle-class mothers of kindergartners roiled by sexual violence, class issues, ageism, and... murder! (That'd be Liane Moriarty's 2014 Big Little Lies.) The result is an HBO miniseries that, even in this big-budget, high-minded small-screen era, we've never seen before: a seven-part thriller that looks like a movie, feels like a movie—and packs enough woman power to populate the Oscars' front row—but grips like only episodic TV can."

AMC - BETTER CALL SAUL : Los Pollos Hermanos - Taste the Family!



At the end of last season's Better Call Saul finale, [Spoiler (click to open)]Mike set out to assassinate Hector Salamanca, but his car horn goes off prompting him to abandon his mission. Returning to his car, he sees a note left on the windshield with the word "DON'T" scrawled on it. Fans speculated that this was a sign from the popular character, Gustavo "Gus" Fring, from Breaking Bad hinting to his upcoming debut on Better Call Saul. Could this promo be confirming that?

I'm ready for this. I'm also curious about that bts(?) photo posted last season of [Spoiler (click to open)]Hank (Dean Norris) and Gomie (Steven Michael Quezada) posing next to Bob's chair. Could we be seeing more classic characters in S3? Better Call Saul Season 3 is set to return Spring 2017.

Seth Meyers Interviews Kellyanne Conway on Donald Trump's Alleged Ties to Russia



“CNN had a report that the intelligence community briefed both the president and the president-elect with allegations that the Russian government has compromising information on President-elect Trump,” Meyers began, before asking Conway if she could “confirm or comment on the fact that the intelligence community has presented this to Donald Trump?”

“Well guess what hasn’t happened, Seth? Nobody has sourced it,” Conway argued. “They’re all unnamed, unspoken sources in the story, and it says it’s based on a Russian investigator to begin with, so we’re all—” And that’s when Meyers interrupted.

“I think it was based on an MI-6 British investigator,” he said.

Over the course of their 13-minute interview, Conway and Meyers also discussed Trump’s use of Twitter, his choice in potential cabinet appointments, and his decision to wait over two months before scheduling his first press conference as the president-elect. Meyers also wagered a bet regarding Trump’s still unseen tax returns.

Leah McSweeney Tries to Expose SNL's Michael Che as an Asshole, Texts Prove Otherwise





- Designer Leah McSweeney (I know: "who?"), founder/CEO of the “Married to the MOB” female streetwear line, tried to expose SNL's Michael Che for being arrogant and woman-hating on her podcast.

- They met through a dating app and exchanged text messages between Sept 2016 and Jan 2017.

- On her podcast, she said he was rude, disrespectful, hates woman, and texted her like she's "a stupid bitch." She also says she dgaf about exposing him because he's D-list to her anyway.

- In reality, their text exchanges were mostly brief and she was obviously more invested, and seemed to get real mad when Che curved her and said he does not want to meet up because she's a weirdo.

Madonna Calls Out Artists Who Do not Use Their Platform to Call Out Donald Trump


In a new interview for Harper's Baazar February 2017 edition Madonna talks about the pain she felt waking up after Donald Trump was elected and calls out popular artists who do not express their political views because they're scared to lose their popularity.

Harper's Baazar: It’s been almost two weeks since the election. How did you feel in the wake of Donald Trump being elected president of the United States? Were you surprised?

Madonna: On election night I was sitting at a table with my agent, who is also one of my very best friends, and we were truly praying. We were praying. She was on her computer. She’s friends with someone who was working on Hillary [Clinton]‘s campaign and was getting blow-by-blow reports, and at one point she was like, “It’s not looking good.” It was just like watching a horror show. And then she was reading from the Quran, and I was reading from the Zohar. We were doing everything: lighting candles, meditating, praying, offering our lives to God forever, if only. I went to sleep, and since that night, I wake up every morning and it’s like when you break up with somebody who has really broken your heart. You wake up and for a second you’re just you, and then you go, “Oh, the person I love more than anything has just broken my heart, and I’m devastated and I’m broken and I have nothing. I’m lost.” That’s how I feel every morning. I wake up and I go, “Wait a second. Donald Trump is the president. It’s not a bad dream. It really happened.” It’s like being dumped by a lover and also being stuck in a nightmare.

Harper's Baazar: What do we do now?

Madonna: I feel like I’m already doing it to a certain degree anyway and have been doing it. But I have to get way more vocal and become a little bit less mysterious. What I find really astonishing is how quiet everybody is in my industry. I mean, nobody in the entertainment business except for maybe a handful of people ever speak out about what’s going on. Nobody takes a political stance or expresses an opinion.

Harper Baazar: Why do you think that is?

Madonna: They want to maintain a neutral position so they can maintain their popularity. I mean, if you have an opinion and people disagree with you, you might not get a job. You might be blacklisted. You might have fewer followers on Instagram. There are any number of things that would be detrimental to your career. Everyone’s really afraid. Because it doesn’t affect their daily life yet, no one’s doing anything about it.

Cast of Riverdale at The Golden Globes & Sabrina The Teenage Witch Might Join Riverdale


According to the executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said :

"Some people don’t even know that Sabrina is in the Archie family. There is absolutely a universe where Sabrina pops up in Riverdale or one town over in Greendale. Certainly, the priority is launching Riverdale and making sure that show is as good as it can be and as embraced as we want it be. I’ll just tease that Sabrina has potential with a capital P."

Karan Johar refuses to say the three words everyone expects him to say



Bollywood director, producer and friend to the stars, Karan Johar, has a new autobiography coming out called An Unsuitable Boy (the title is a play on the title of the famous novel, A Suitable Boy- which is about marriage etc- by Vikram Seth, who is also gay). Karan has been living in the world's biggest glass closet for a while now- mostly everyone (celebs and the common public) knows he's gay, he has never said he is straight, he has often hinted at the difficulties in his childhood arising out of his effeminacy, and most of all, he allows asshole straight celebs on his show to constantly allude to his homosexuality through very tired jokes. Yet, he has not come out unlike a few other public figures in India. He has been playing this coy game now where he does not hide his sexuality but also refuses to come out. He had previously written about his issues and inhibitions regarding sex.

In his most direct statement yet, he discusses his sexuality, the rumors about him and SRK and homophobia in India. Some quotes:

377 is a complicated piece of legislation- Asrani is right: you cannot be arrested for saying you are gay but unfortunately it is not so simple. I think he fears he could be blackmailed or humiliated by others. So even if it may not result in imprisonment, the law casts a long shadow and causes emotional pressure, maybe even to someone as privileged as Karan. I hope he comes out in his own pace...this really sucks.
