Kate Winslet Recalls ‘Horrible’ Comments About Her Weight During Titanic Era


She spoke with The Guardian and was asked about the press coverage over the years and Joan Rivers “If she just lost 5lb, Leo would’ve been able to fit on the raft.” comment

Yes, In my 20s, people would talk about my weight a lot. And I would be called to comment on my physical self. Well, then I got this label of being ballsy and outspoken. No, I was just defending myself,'

'It was almost laughable how shocking, how critical, how straight-up cruel tabloid journalists were to me. I was still figuring out who the hell I bloody well was! They would comment on my size, they’d estimate what I weighed, they’d print the supposed diet I was on. It was critical and horrible and so upsetting to read,'

Rose Leslie & Theo James to Star in HBO's 'The Time Traveler's Wife' Series

- Rose Leslie (Games of Thrones) and Theo James (Divergent) are set to star in the upcoming The Time Traveler's Wife series, which has been in development since mid-2018.

- HBO describes the series as “an intricate and magical love story that tells the story of Clare (Leslie) and Henry (James), and a marriage with a problem … time travel.”

- Based off of the novel of the same name by Audrey Niffenegger, which was made into a film in 2009 starring Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana. The film made more than $100 million worldwide (on a budget of $39 million).

- Steven Moffat (Doctor Who & Sherlock) will be writing and executive producing the series (lmao)

- HBO descriptions of the main characters are under spoiler
Clair Abshire (played by Leslie): a is fiery, clever and unstoppable — and for most of her life she’s had an amazing secret. Since she was 6, she has had an imaginary friend: a kind and funny man, sometimes old, sometimes young, who appears in the woods behind her house and tells her tales of the future. Visits from the mysterious Henry are the bright spots in the tedium of her childhood. As the years pass, and she grows into a beautiful young woman, she starts to realize her friend is not imaginary — he’s a time traveler, visiting from the future. And he’s not just from any old future — he’s from her future. Clare has a literal date with destiny. One day she’s going to meet a young man called Henry DeTamble — whom she’ll know very well but who won’t recognize her at all — and she will become the time traveler’s wife.

Henry DeTamble (played by James): Henry DeTamble has been a time traveler since he was 8. It’s not a superpower, it’s a condition — he can’t help it. Sometimes, when Henry is stressed or worried — and sometimes for no reason at all — he loses his grip on the current moment and falls naked into the past or the future. One minute he’s making breakfast, the next he’s naked at a hoedown in 1973. He can be stuck there for minutes or months, he never knows. His life is a rollercoaster of constant danger and white-knuckle survival. Until one day he meets a beautiful redhead in the library where he works. Her name is Clare Abshire and though he’s never seen her before, she claims to have known him all her life. Finally, his curse has given him something good — and Clare and Henry are about to have the time of their lives.

Recap of "Trashcan nachos"-esque Ginny & Georgia and interview with newcomer Antonia Gentry

Ginny & Georia is a Frankenstein's monster of different tv show shows and archetypes; it can't decide what genre it's in from episode to episode. Pulls heavily from Gilmore Girls, Euphoria, Weeds, the Shondaverse, Hart of Dixie etc etc etc (seriously there's a lot of references/homage going on). Despite that, it's quite delightful?

- Auditioned for Ginny & Georgia her last week at Emory.

- Got a bloodclot from all the flying back and forth to Canada for in-person auditions for the show. Is fortunately fine!

- Unlike Ginny, Antonia's mother is Black. She feels having a mother who understood her experience is a significant difference in their stories. Ginny doesn't have that level of support.

- Was involved in the behind-the-scenes process of telling Ginny's story as a biracial person and used lines from her own life.

ONTD, did anyone else enjoy this seriously cheesy binge-watch? Paging the ONTD-er who said they worked behind the scenes for gossip!

Debra Wilson says she left MADtv due to pay disparity with 'white male cast members'

She left MADtv in 2003 after discovering a pay disparity between her and more recent white male cast members, which she said the show was unwilling to address.

Her decision to leave was more about the principle, she "was still the original Black woman on the show."
It's devaluing of what she was bringing to the table and can continue to bring to the table.
There wasn't even a negotiation to raise her salary, let alone to match somebody else.


NBC Pulls Nurses Episode Following Backlash over Its Portrayal of Orthodox Jews​

NBC has removed the “Nurses” (Canadian drama) episode “Achilles Heel” from digital platforms and future airings following backlash over a storyline involving a man from the Orthodox Jewish community. NBC has no plans to issue a statement condemning the episode.

In Orthodox Judaism, there are no specific restrictions regarding using a transplant from a cadaver in a medical situation.

A global Jewish human rights organization, responded to the episode in a statement.
“The writers of this scene check all the boxes of ignorance and pernicious negative stereotypes, right down to the name of the patient, Israel—paiyous and all. In one scene, NBC has insulted and demonized religious Jews and Judaism. Orthodox Jews are targeted for violent hate crimes – in the city of New York, Jews are number one target of hate crimes in US; this is no slip of the tongue. It was a vile, cheap attack masquerading as TV drama. What’s NBC going to do about it?”

[Description of the scene]
The scene :
A young Orthodox Jewish man named Israel is hospitalized for a shattered leg. A doctor informs Israel and his father, who insists that “the Creator” will heal him, that Israel will require a bone graft (part of a cadaver’s leg would be surgically inserted into his leg).

“You want to put a dead leg inside of me?” Israel asks the doctor. “A dead goyim leg — from anyone. An Arab, a woman,” his father replies. Then, a nurse chimes in: “Or God forbid an Arab woman.” Israel ultimately refuses the bone graft, saying that “It’s God who heals what he creates.”

It’s Been Ten Years Since The Short Lived Rihanna and Ciara Twitter Feud

Yesterday (February 25) marked 10 years since that Twitter feud between Rihanna and Ciara. It all began when Ciara appeared on E! Fashion Police with Joan Rivers.

“I ran into [Rihanna] recently at a party. She wasn’t the nicest,” the ‘Goodies’ singer told Rivers. “It’s crazy, because I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done in fashion. It wasn’t the most pleasant run-in.”

And then...

But did you know that Melissa Rivers was low key responsible for that whole feud to begin with? ONTDer richyrich909 was at the taping as revealed in this post. Read the spoiler cut to read what happened behind the scenes.

[ONTD Insider Tea]A close friend of mine works for E! And asked if I wanted to go to a fashion police taping (btw i completely thought it didn’t have a studio audience lol) so of course I said yeah. The audience was like maybe 20/30 people in fold up chairs. So I’m right behind Melissa and Ciara is basically just not delivering. They asked her about Rihanna and she said she didn’t care for her dress. Then they asked her to spice it up and she reworded it. Then they cut and told her she needed to really deliver more and be more mean. So that’s when she came up with the story saying she wasn’t nice to her off camera. So Melissa said go with that. 😂. So they started rolling and she did and the rest is history. lol. Side note: Melissa was chilling between takes talking to tha audience who I’m guessing were mostly people who know people from the network since it was so tiny and someone asked her when she’ll be producing more shows for them and her response was classic.... ”when the network stops giving Ryan all the money ...“

Radio Station Apologizes After Host Compares BTS to COVID-19

Bayern3‘s Matthias Matuschik called BTS‘s version of Coldplay‘s “Fix You” “blasphemy,”. He suggested the band is “some crappy virus that hopefully there will be a vaccine for soon as well.”

For punishment for the cover, he suggested the group “will be vacationing in North Korea for the next 20 years.”

Today, the station issued an apology, claiming the host was “presenting his opinion in an ironic, exaggerated way and with exaggerated excitement, his words went too far and hurt the feelings of BTS fans. But he — and he has assured us of this — in no way intended this. He just wanted to express his displeasure over the aforementioned cover version.”

“That does not change the fact that many of you found his statements to be hurtful or racist,” Bayern3 added.

“We apologize for this in every way possible. We will work on the matter with Matthias and the team in detail again in the next few days.”
