Kathleen Turner says bloated movie star salaries are "essentially immoral"

“How much money does a person need? You can only live in one house at a time. Perhaps they could designate that the studio pay a portion of the fee to an organization or an educational institution.”

Kathleen Turner is slamming films’ bloated budgets and the ridiculous amount of money paid to A-list actors.
She says the massive amounts of money could be better spent on improving scripts and offering actors more rehearsal time.
Turner argues that male and female actors should be receiving equal pay.
She recalled the galling response when she once asked a studio for some rehearsal time.
“They said, ‘Well, then you have to give us two weeks free.’ I took two weeks without pay.”

Telluride film festival shaping 2019 Oscars, with Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, more

Looks like the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado this weekend might be the one churning out some of the first big Oscar contenders this year, including films that had world premieres there, and those that were screened both there and at Venice.

-- Nicole Kidman's gritty crime drama 'Destroyer' is getting rave reviews for the actress - being compared to Charlize Theron's Oscar-winning role in 'Monster', even. The reviews pretty much have said that Nicole's proven that she can essentially do ANY role impeccably.
-- Similarly is Melissa McCarthy in 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?', who critics unanimously said has given a career-best performance in the film, so expect her in the Best Actress convo come wintertime.

Others that have been mentioned to be possible awards contenders include Hugh Jackman in 'The Front Runner' (though the movie got meh reviews), Robert Redford in 'The Old Man & the Gun' (which got great reviews), 'Boy Erased' (for Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman again, and not sure yet about Lucas Hedges), and movies reviewed at Venice: 'First Man', 'Roma', and 'The Favourite'.

Should point out that 'The Sisters Brothers' was just screened at Venice and is getting fairly good reviews so far.

Note that there are still a few more movies to premiere at Venice, but most importantly - the huge slate of premieres to come at the Toronto Film Festival starting this week.


Hailey Baldwin is so excited about marrying Justin B.

- Source acts like there was "intense scrutiny", but Hailey Baldwin can't worry about it because of her sheer excitement

- Baldwin says she's not really affected by it and has learnt to ignore negativity so she can "enjoy this season of my life"

- In the interview she also mentions she's not the gushing type, nor is considering acting right now, unless "the right thing comes along"

- Baldwin finds it an enormous honour to be called an icon (she's one of the faces of the Fall 2018 Tommy Hilfiger Women’s Icons capsule collection)


The things I'll read to give you something to do on this Sunday, ONTD. When was the last time you intensely scrutinised Hailey Baldwin?

Harry P. celebrates his twentieth American birthday

- It's been 20 years (and one day) since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (yes, that's Philosopher's stone, red.) came to the United States.

- In the clip you can check if you know some Harry Potter (movies) essential facts like how many pairs of glasses were used for Daniel Radcliffe's character (160 pairs)

- The tags is mostly libraries and Slytherin folk saying that there's good Slytherin as well.

What happens when fans don't want their childhood brands to grow up?

- Male author wonders "(SOME, red.) adults are insisting childhood brands from 'Star Wars' to Marvel continue to cater to them, but does preserving the past limit the future?"

- Author says that millenials and GenXers can't let shit go, while previous generations were less consumerist driven and were therefore less involved with fandoms. Age of author can't be found in the piece

- He does have a point with pointing out bros complaining about She-Ra and how she used to be/should be hotter, or how people complain about keeping productions "too childish" instead of "for us"


Can you let go of your childhood staples, ONTD?

-They wanted to try something different in S3 thus focusing the story around Javi but heard the fans complaints about the lack of Clementine and knew S4 would have to focus on her.

-There is no way to get out of the outcome that comes at the end of 1st episode though there is a slight dialogue change.

Céline Sciamma's 'Portrait of A Lady On Fire' to Shoot This Fall

  • Production on Céline Sciamma's Portrait of A Lady On Fire revs up as MK2 boards international sales of the film

  • Portrait of A Lady On Fire is aiming for a late autumn start date and is expected to release in early 2019

  • The film reunites Sciamma and Adèle Haenel (Water Lilies, BPM) in a story about a young bride (Haenel) and the woman commissioned to paint her wedding portrait. With an 18th century setting, this film will be a departure from Sciamma's previous work. This also marks Sciamma and Haenel's first collaboration since becoming a couple (and later breaking up) in 2014.

Wiz Khalifa Explains Why He Let His Son Ride The Bus To School

Wiz Khalifa had a proud dad moment as his son, Sebastian, started his first day of Kindergarten. 
Fans degraded Wiz’s parenting skills all from the assumptions made from his caption. 
Fans expressed that Wiz was too rich for his child to ride the bus to school or how selfish of Wiz to not pick his child up from school.

Wiz took to Instagram posting a video explaining why exactly he let Bash ride the bus in which he stated,
“To all y’all people asking why I would let my son ride the bus because I’m rich — being rich don’t got nothing to do with a child experiences. He said he wanted to ride the bus with his friends, so let kids do what they want to do. Chill!”

Shauna Sexton Claps Back at Critic Claiming She Caused Ben Affleck’s Relapse

The 22-year-old Playboy model was called out by a fan who claimed she got the actor and director “thrown into rehab” on Instagram, she responded :
“It’s so bizarre to me that you follow me and have the energy to come to the comments section strictly to comment something negative. It’s even more bizarre to me that you can somehow correlate someone’s [poor decisions] to anyone other than that person. Never drank around or with him for the record.”

Her critic wrote back :
“You’ve been arrested twice for underage drinking and public intoxication just last year, so please tell me again you don’t like to drink or party lmao.”

She responded :
“I love to drink and party! Yes you’re correct. I got put in the drunk tank when I was 17 for having a fake ID and drinking underage at a bar in Virginia Beach, and despite the fact most people have used a fake ID as well as drank underage, it was a dumb mistake on my behalf and an embarrassing one at that… Do these mistakes define me? No, stupid miniscule sh*t I learned from. Do these mistakes mean that I am human? Yes. Do these mistakes mean I would disrespect someone’s hard earned sobriety by drinking with them or in front of them? Hell no. I have limitless respect [for] people who have the humility and maturity to admit when they need to fix something in their life.”

Louis Tomlinson has an emotional moment judging a contestant on the X Factor UK.

Louis introduced Anthony by saying: "Anthony auditioned for the show a year ago... and he came in with a black eye for his first audition so he stole my heart straight away, I don't think I've ever seen anybody at their first audition with a black eye. I've really gotten to know you over the past year and got to know your family and I think you're a lovely, lovely lad." And Simon went on to add that Louis is being modest and he actually gave Anthony the help that he needed.

  • Anthony Russell had to drop out of the show at the judges' houses stage last year due to personal problems with addiction, after which Louis tweeted public support for him.

  • Privately, Louis also DMed him on Twitter and offered him some help. Anthony went to rehab for four months and he and Louis ended up forming a really close friendship. At the audition he said, "I wouldn’t be here in this place now if it wasn’t for Louis."

  • He sang Avicii's 'Wake Me Up' and got a standing ovation from the crowd and judges.

  • Louis started crying during his performance and got up to hug him afterwards, where they exchanged thank you's and love you's (and proceeded to make everybody cry rip).

  • When it got to giving a yes or a no, Louis opted out due to feeling like he had too much of a personal relationship to give an opinion but ended up giving a yes when prompted by Simon.

[How far does Anthony go?]

  • Louis ends up getting the boys category, and gives Anthony in a seat in the six chair challenge so we know that he makes it through to judges' houses again.


I was in the audience for his performances and he was so good, Louis got up to hug him multiple times and had to excuse himself from the judges' table after they'd done filming it. It was a really sweet moment tbh! Opinions on this year's X Factor?


Graphic design is my passion: Celine unveils new logo

  • Celine unveiled its new logo under its new creative director, Hedi Slimane.

  • People are quite upset that the accented é has been dropped.

  • This is being compared to Burberry's recent logo change by Riccardo Tisci, which ditched the old-timey heritage font for the same contemporary look that almost every brand is using.

  • FYI, Yves Saint Laurent was renamed to Saint Laurent Paris under Slimane in 2012; everybody hated it then... until Saint Laurent became parent company Kering's biggest money-maker within three years of Slimane's appointment.

will any logo change be as iconic as this?
