Debra Winger on Madonna and A League of Their Own



Debra Winger was once signed up to play the part of Dottie in the Penny Marshall film "A League of Their Own," but dropped out four weeks before production. Initial reports on her departure claimed "personal differences with the script."

However, in a new interview with The Telegraph, "she left the project when director Penny Marshall cast Madonna, accusing Marshall of making “an Elvis film” – not what she’d signed on to do."

Winger says Geena Davis (her replacement), "did ok." She adds, "I certainly don't begrudge any of them (Davis and other actors)."

Geena Davis was swiftly brought in after Winger departed with only several weeks to prepare for her role. Winger allegedly spent three months to work with Chicago Cubs.

In an interview in 1992, Davis says of replacing Winger, "It didn't make me feel weird. People don't realize it, but in almost every movie, that's the case. Probably every part I've done, it was given to somebody else first. I just had to work harder. I stayed later and had extra coaches for the catcher position. I'm slightly athletic, so I caught on."

In 1992, Lori Petty, who played Kit, Dottie's younger sister, said, "It's Debra's business why she left. It's between her and the studio. But she was gone and I was sweating bullets. Debra and I worked together for several weeks. We'd practised together. But now, I was thinking - What are we going to do?" She adds the two achieved a sisterly rapport, "We even looked alike--so I was kinda nervous."

Davis would later be nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in the film.

As for Madonna, Winger says, "I think [her] acting career has spoken for itself."

Initially Davis had her own qualms with the casting of Madonna, saying in 2017, "She was Madonna. We wondered if we were going to be able to talk to her. Was she going to have an entourage? Were they going to put up walls around her where she stands." It turned out Madonna was in it for real. Davis adding, "That was painful. But she was so game. She was a trooper."

In regards for the finished film, Winger says, "as entertaining as [the finished film] was, you don't walk away going "Wow, those women did that." You kind of go "Is that true?"'

A League of Their Own went on to be the first Female Directed film to earn $100 Million.

Is Met Gala 2021 Losing Its Glamour Because of Influencer Invites?



The rumor that lead organizer and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has invited a ton of TikTok, YouTube and Instagram influencers to the exclusive annual event has some A-listers miffed.

“I’ve been told that a lot of influencers are on the guest list,” one celebrity agent, whose clients have been regulars at the affair in the past, told The Post. “I’ve heard that Facebook and Instagram have taken so many tables, and that’s put a lot of people off going, alongside the mask mandate.”

A publicist with A-list clients added: “Personally, I don’t think the Met is cool anymore … It’s gone from super prestigious to [being] full of influencers.”

Along with regulars JLo, Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o, influencers Addison Rae and YouTuber Emma Chamberlain are rumored to be on the guest list. Sarah Jessica Parker, Ben Affleck, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen will likely not attend due to work commitments. A number of previous attendees may not go due to Covid concerns.

A fashion agent brushed off criticism, noting this year’s focus is on supporting young talent, so guests will skew younger and anyone complaining wasn't invited and is bitter about it.

Representatives for Vogue declined to comment.

Dancer alleges that management "dragged" Britney Spears to stage in 2009



A former back-up dancer for Britney Spears has made an explosive allegation on her social media.

She recounts how Britney was physically dragged back to the stage during a show at her 2009 Circus Tour. Britney had smelled a lot of weed smoke in the audience and she was afraid that if she continued the show she could fail her court ordered drug tests which would result in losing custody of her children.

In videos from the show Britney can be seen getting annoyed and not doing the dance routine. She also told the audience "dont smoke weed" at the show's encore.

Barbra Streisand Thought Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's A Star Is Born was the 'Wrong Idea'

talking on the australian talk series The Sunday Project:

"At first, when I heard it was going to be done again, it was supposed to be Will Smith and Beyoncé, and I thought, that's interesting. Really make it different again, different kind of music, integrated actors. I thought that was a great idea. So, I was surprised when I saw how alike it was to the version that I did in 1976."

"[I] thought it was the wrong idea"

"I can't argue with success but I don't care so much about success as I do originality"
