Live-action adaptation of popular novel "Heaven's Official Blessing" starts filming - gets dragged

The much-awaited live-action adaptation of "Heaven Official's Blessing/Tian Guan Ci Fu", the 3rd novel by MXTX (same author that gave us "MDZS/The Untamed"), has finally started filming. Fans were already displeased bc of the casting choices (lead guy is an idol and not an actor/fans wanted other people for the roles/etc) and now the cheap-looking costumes/wigs in the filming photos have only fueled stans' ire.

You can view a list of the cast HERE and more filming photos HERE.

Trevor Donovan Defends Actors in Their 20’s and 30’s Playing Teenagers on TV: “Age Is Just a Number”

90210 actor Trevor Donovan, 40, took to Twitter to respond to an article and tweet by The Wrap: “These 10 actors were WAY too old to play teens.” Donovan himself isn’t listed, but when he was 28 he played a high school teen himself (Teddy Montgomery) on The CW’s 90210 reboot in season 2. “Age is just a number, get over it,” wrote the actor. “Some people look younger and age slower than others. Stop promoting Ageism!”

[5 of 10 Actors Listed]
Gabrielle Carteris, 29, "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990-2000)
During the first season of "Beverly Hills, 90210," Gabrielle Carteris was 29 — a whopping 13 years older than her character, Andrea. The CW's reboot of the teen series later continued that trend, with Matt Lanter playing a high schooler at age 25.

Stacey Dash, 28, "Clueless" (1995)
Alicia Silverstone was still a teenager while filming "Clueless," but her co-star Stacey Dash (aka Dionne) was much older, at 28. And she wasn't done there -- Dash continued to play a high schooler in the ABC sitcom version of "Clueless," which ended in 1999, when she was 32.

Ben McKenzie, 25, "The O.C." (2003-2007)
Heartthrob Ben McKenzie was 25 when he took on the role of Ryan Atwood on "The O.C." While Ryan was falling for Marissa Cooper at The Harbor School, McKenzie was years away from any real-life high school romance.

Jason Earles, 29, "Hannah Montana" (2006-2015)
The older brother of the secret pop star was 16 -- and was played by 29-year-old Jason Earles. Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus, who played Miley/Hannah, was 15 years younger than Earles when she started the show at a ripe 13 years old.

Darren Barnet, 29, "Never Have I Ever" (2020-2021)
Darren Barnet is surrounded by age-appropriate actors on the Netflix show, which makes this age difference all the more noticeable. Barnet, who turned 30 just before Season 2 premiered, is 11 years older than his love interest and co-star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan. And if anyone was wondering, Ramakrishnan was 18 when the series premiered.

MGM Says New Johnny Depp Film Still Awaiting Release After Director Claims Studio Is Burying It

“Minamata” director Andrew Levitas has sent a letter to MGM condemning the studio for allegedly burying his historical drama because it stars Johnny Depp.

“MGM had decided to ‘bury the film because MGM was concerned about the possibility that the personal issues of an actor in the film could reflect negatively upon them and that from MGM’s perspective the victims and their families were secondary to this.”

The film was picked up by MGM’s relaunched American International Pictures last fall after world premiering in February 2020 at the Berlin International Film Festival. 

MGM said the film is not buried and is just waiting for a release date.
The film initially had a day-and-date push set for February 2021 but did not get released.


Ashton Kutcher Says He And Mila Kunis Only Bathe Their Kids When ‘You Can See Dirt On Them’

They don’t believe in bathing their kids (Wyatt Isabelle, 6, and Dimitri Portwood, 4) with soap every day.
Kunis and Kutcher dont use soap on their entire bodies every day.
Despite not washing their whole bodies every day, they do wash their faces.

Kunis : “I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn’t shower much anyway. But when I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day. I wasn’t the parent that bathed my newborns — ever. That’s how we feel about our children. I wash [my face] twice a day.”

Kutcher : "Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point. I wash my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever. I got a bar of Lever 2000 that delivers every time. Nothing else. I do have a tendency to throw some water on my face after a workout to get all the salts out."

Dax Shepard admitted that he and wife Kristen Bell used to bathe their daughters Lincoln, 8, and Delta, 6, every day but that stopped as they got older. Shepard insisted you should not be getting rid of the natural oil on your skin with a bar of soap every day and should instead wash with water.

Monica Padman “I can’t believe I am in the minority here of washing my whole body in the shower. Who taught you to not wash?” 


Statements Against The Sexualization Of Women In Sports

The German women's gymnastics team has forgone bikini-cut unitards in favor of full-body versions at the Tokyo Olympics as a statement against "sexualization." The suits cover the legs to the ankle and are in contrast to the high-cut leotards worn by many other female gymnasts.

"It's about what feels comfortable. We wanted to show that every woman, everybody, should decide what to wear."
