Sienna Miller echoes Scarlett Johansson: "everybody should be able to play everybody"

“I’m about to get myself into trouble, I know,” says English actress, Sienna Miller



When asked of the hot topic about what roles actors should be able to play, Sienna Miller goes off.

“I feel everybody should be able to play everybody,” Miller says. “It seems absurd to me to start to legislate on creativity. That’s not trying to be insensitive – of course, there are people who have a deeper understanding of experiences, and they should definitely be considered...  I certainly don’t want to play myself for the rest of my life.

'I’m all for a lot of the changes that are happening – and I’m benefiting from them as a woman but it does feel complicated when you start to legislate on what roles you can and cannot play.

'I think it’s English to not be as careful. It feels like liberal is becoming almost fascistic in its controlling of what can and cannot be done. It feels dangerous to me."

Miller portrays American women in two films out this year, Showtime's The Loudest Voice and American Woman, for which she's been getting rave reviews about. “If you started to restrict me to playing English women who went to boarding school at eight, you know, I would give up," Miller says.

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week


The Giver of Stars

Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically.

The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky.

What happens to them--and to the men they love--becomes an unforgettable drama of loyalty, justice, humanity and passion. These heroic women refuse to be cowed by men or by convention. And though they face all kinds of dangers in a landscape that is at times breathtakingly beautiful, at others brutal, they’re committed to their job: bringing books to people who have never had any, arming them with facts that will change their lives.

Oscar voters have thoughts on Joker

THR talked to some Oscar voters about Joker. Here's what some had to say:

Male, Writer's Branch: Found it artisically stronger than many of last years nominees.

Male, Director's Branch: A bold effort, but cynical mess. Found it irresponsible in the depiction of mental illness and violence.

Female, Member-at-Large: Thought it was extraordinary, but also stomach-churning. Phoenix HAS to get nominated.

Male, Executive Branch: Says his 21-year-old son liked it, but thought the film sends a strange message.

Female, Editor's Branch: Nearly perfect in every way.

Female, Executive Branch: Found the film lacking any specific thematic point. Even with a great performance and impressive filmmaking the experience was unpleasant.

There are plenty of options to go around at the source, including those who stated they haven't seen it yet. Some saying they don't plan on it or will only do so to see Phoenix's performance.

Blizzard pulls prize money and suspends Hearthstone player Blitzchung for Hong Kong support



  • Hearthstone is a popular online competitive card game created by Blizzard and hosts Hearthstone tournaments every year (other Blizzard games include Overwatch, World of Warcraft, and Starcraft)

  • One of Hearthstone's star players is Chung Ng Wai, otherwise known as "Blitzchung". During a recent post-match interview with the Hearthstone casters, while wearing a gas mask, shouted "Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our age!"

  • Blizzard in response to this decided to remove Blitzchung from the Hearthstone grandmaster tournament, ban him from competing for a whole year, and pull all of the prize money he has earned.

  • On top of that Blizzard has also fired the two casters that were interviewing Blitzchung.

  • In spite of all of this Blitzchung does not regret anything he said "I know what my action on stream means. It could cause me lot of trouble, even my personal safety in real life. But I think it's my duty to say something about the issue."

  • There has been massive backlash from social media to even some Blizzard employees since Blitzchung's ban with two of Blizzard's core values "Think Globally" and "Every Voice Matters" being covered up on the statue in front of their campus.

  • Another competitive card game: Gods Unchained, released a statement siding with Blitzchung paying his lost winnings and inviting him to their $500k tournament.

No theaters in America will play Gemini Man the way its intended to be seen

Ang Lee shot his new film Gemini Man in 4K 3D at 120 frames per second. And if you were hoping to see the film the way Lee shot it, well I got some bad news for you... Not a single theater in America is capable of doing so.

Only 14 theaters are set to show the film in 120fps 3D, but will be doing so at 2K resolution and not 4K. Every other theater showing the film in 3D will be doing so at 60fps in 4K, including IMAX showings.

Paramount had to install a new projection system for the films premiere, as the TCL Chinese theater was not equipped to properly show the film. The projector, for some reason, is not sticking around while the films plays there.

Lee shot his last film, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, in the same format and only 2 theaters in the US were able to show it properly. Lynn was a box office bomb.

This one might be as well, as it currently has a brutal 35 on both Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes, with much criticism coming from what's called its bland and generic plot.

‘Big Mouth’ Co-Creators Apologize for Inaccurate Pansexuality Scene



Season 3 episode “Rankings”
Introduction of a new character named Ali, who identifies as both a Ravenclaw and pansexual.
It created controversy surrounding its inaccurate analogy explaining the character’s sexual orientation.
Ali takes centerstage in the classroom to explain that,
“Pansexual means I’m into boys, girls, and everything in between,”
Nick asks an understandable question: “I thought that was bisexual?”

LGBTQ+ viewers pointed out, Ali’s initial definition of pansexuality implies that trans boys and trans girls aren’t simply boys and girls and it boils things down to two genders.

GLAAD defines :
pansexuality “being attracted to all gender identities, or attracted to people regardless of gender”
bisexuality “being attracted to more than one gender”

Jennifer Aniston Says Harvey Weinstein Tried to Force Her to Wear a Marchesa Dress




Jennifer Aniston says she felt pressured by Weinstein to wear his ex-wife Georgina Chapman’s fashion label, Marchesa.

She worked with Weinstein for the film, Derailed, in 2005.

In an interview for Variety‘s Power of Women issue, Jennifer says:

“I remember, right when Georgina’s clothing line Marchesa was starting. That’s when he came to visit me in London while we were shooting. He’d be like, ‘Ok, so I’d like you to wear one of these to the premiere'”

“And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasn’t what it is today. It was not for me. He was like, ‘You have to wear the dress.’ That was my only bullying. And I was like, ‘No, I will not wear the dress.'”

Aniston said that Weinstein “knew better” than to force her into wearing a dress designed by Chapman.

Andrew Scott Supports Priests Getting Hitched


  • Andrew Scott, who plays a Catholic priest (aka "Hot Priest") on Season Two of Fleabag, guested on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

  • He and Colbert talked about the recent comments by Pope Francis regarding the possibility that priests could be allowed to marry, as one of several ideas discussed at a meeting of bishops to increase the numbers of Catholics in the Amazon.

  • Both men supporting the idea. Scott thinks that it would increase the dwindling numbers of priests, while Colbert said he would have considered joining the clergy if that were the case.

  • No doctrine officially forbids priests from getting married, but it's effectively been banned for centuries. If such a decision was made, it could cause a divide with the more conservative faction of the church.

Fleabag's impact! Jk, jk. Should priests be able to get married? Would you marry a priest?
