Kristen Stewart in Chanel at the HFAs: awkward or stunning?

wenn21928221

Kristen Stewart was on hand at last night’s Hollywood Film Awards to honor her costar and onscreen mom, Julianne Moore. Moore won the Hollywood Actress Award, presented by K-Stew. My takeaway? Everybody loves Julianne. Everybody wants good things for Julianne. If Julianne plays her Oscar campaign the right way, so could totally win this year. Now, I’m not so sure what Hollywood power players think of Kristen though. She was as awkward as always when presenting Julianne with her award (this video cuts out the very beginning where Kristen had to clear her throat on stage).

I will say this – Still Alice looks like a really good movie. I kind of wonder if they couldn’t get someone better than Alec Baldwin to play the husband, but whatever.

As for the fashion… neither woman brought it. Kristen wore this messed up, ill-fitting Chanel dress which was TOO LOW on her chest. I felt like we were one cough away from seeing her breasts, full on. It doesn’t even seem to be exceptionally well-tailored or anything, it’s like Kristen grabbed a half-finished dress from a Chanel rack.

Julianne wore Balenciaga… the dress is inoffensive but the terrible bridesmaid shoes kill the look! As a matter of fact, her whole look has a weird bridal feel.

Will Kristen Stewart campaign for an Oscar for her role in ‘Still Alice’?

wenn21747678

Immediately following The Great Mini-Coopering of 2012, Kristen Stewart had to promote On the Road. She had a supporting part and, to her credit, she did the promotional rounds like a professional, even though most of us were thinking, “Ugh, trampire.” Kristen’s efforts were duly rewarded with some gossip that she would possibly be up for some awards for the role. Kristen even kissed up to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (aka the Golden Globes) that November. Nothing ever came of it because once people saw the movie, I guess they were like, “ugh, lip-biter.” But it was good to see that Kristen was not “above” hustling during awards season.

Now a new report suggests that some actual money might go into a possible awards season campaign for Kristen. Kristen has a supporting part in Still Alice, a small film which walked away with stellar buzz at TIFF. Most critics believe that Julianne Moore – playing a woman with early-onset Alzheimer’s – will definitely get a Best Actress Oscar nomination. Kristen plays Moore’s hipster daughter, the daughter who comes home and takes surprising steps to spend more time with her mom. Critics were impressed, apparently.

Julianne Moore, this year’s clear best actress Oscar frontrunner for her work in Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s Still Alice — a drama in which she plays a middle-aged academic diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease — won’t be the only person associated with that film to get a major Oscar push this year, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Sony Pictures Classics, which picked up the film’s U.S. distribution rights at the Toronto Film Festival, intends to mount an all-out campaign for several others associated with the film, especially Kristen Stewart in the best supporting actress category, who plays the daughter of Moore’s character.

“The picture is just a major achievement,” Michael Barker, co-chief of Sony Pictures Classics, told The Hollywood Reporter on Friday. (Sony Pictures Classics also distributed Glatzer and Westmoreland’s Quinceanera, the winner of the 2006 Sundance Film Festival’s grand jury and audience awards.) “It’s a drama that embraces life and that captures the complexities of life. We see that very rarely in movies, although we at Sony Classics saw that not so long ago with Amour.”

“In addition to the depth of its screenplay and direction, it features several major performances,” Barker continued. “There’s no question that Julianne Moore gives the greatest performance of her career to date — it’s a performance of such amazing depth and subtlety — but one of the reasons it comes off so spectacularly well is that the actors around her are so strong. Kristen Stewart has never been better than she is in this film. Alec Baldwin gives one of the strongest performances of his career. In addition to that, you’ve got Kate Bosworth and Hunter Parrish also giving really strong performances.”

Many observers have zeroed in on Stewart’s performance — depicting the daughter who both spars with and cares for her declining mother — as being particularly impressive, and Barker, who has never worked with the 24-year-old before but has long admired her from afar, agrees with that assessment. “Kristen Stewart is someone we have seen in many movies over the last several years — four in 2014, with three coming up in 2015 so far — and she has shown great range in such a wide variety of genres,” he said. “But there is something about this performance that has new depths that she hasn’t shown before. She’s really terrific in the film.”

So what will an Oscar campaign for Stewart, as well as the others, look like? “Not only do you send the DVDs, but you have ads and screenings and try to point out these categories for attention.” And will Stewart, one of the busier A-listers in the business, be available to do the interviews, glad-handing and baby-kissing that have become essential to most successful Oscar campaigns in the present day? “As far as I know, she’s fully supportive of this film in a major way,” Barker said. “We certainly are.”

[From THR]

Believe it or not, I don’t hate the idea of Kristen Stewart hustling for an Oscar nomination. I’m not sure if that hustling will pay off, but it would be fun to see her try. That would mean more interviews and more appearances and more lip-biting. Yay! This awards season might be more fun than we’re expecting. We could have some really interesting fashion moments – in addition to Julianne (I adore her but her style sucks) and Kristen, we might see nominations for Reese Witherspoon, Keira Knightley, Rosamund Pike, Amy Adams, Emma Stone and other younger ladies. Yay for fashion!

Alec Baldwin’s appearance at U. of Arizona was canceled because no one cared

wenn21727699

Here are some photos of Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria at Tuesday night’s launch of the new season of Lincoln Center. The concert was La Dolce Vita. I don’t know you guys, does Hilaria look like her plan has gone terribly wrong? I think so. Alec Baldwin looks like he’s about punch his way through Lincoln Center, hollering homophobic slurs the entire way. I also don’t understand what’s happening with his hair? What is that style? Gurl, you need some help!

Meanwhile, no one really wants to hear what Alec Baldwin has to say about anything. He was scheduled to give a talk to the students of the University of Arizona. But the university canceled his appearance because there was barely any interest in Baldwin and no one was buying the $40 tickets. According to The Daily Caller, “A Conversation with Alec Baldwin” was promoted as “spending an evening with one of the most interesting men in America.” LOL. Alec took to Twitter to correct some reporting that HE had canceled the appearance, making sure that everyone knows the university canceled the appearance.

Despite his reputation, Alec is still getting work. He filmed a part in Mission Impossible 5 (OMG) and he recently signed on to a sci-fi film with Danny Glover.

Maisie Williams complains about British Airways on Twitter: ugh or understandable?

MW2

Maisie Williams – also known as Arya Stark on Game of Thrones – is all of 17 years old. She’s adorable and talented and she’s very, very active on social media. She often watches GoT episodes when everybody else does and reacts online, on Twitter or Instagram or Vine. I think her social media activity has probably helped to elevate Arya as one of the fan-favorites (plus, people just love that character). For the most part, Maisie’s social media stuff is innocent, funny and sweet, the portrait of a young working actress who is trying to be normal in a mad world. But over the weekend, Maisie went Full Alec Baldwin on Twitter when she bitched out British Airways for not letting her in the Business Class lounge. #RichPeopleProblems? Here’s a summary of what she tweeted (I’m not going to embed all of these tweets):

MW: Denied from the business lounge once again for being under 18 and without an adult.. @British_Airways sort your sh-t out.

MW: I’m not saying I deserve special treatment..

MW: Just saying if 16-18 yr olds are grown up enough to travel 5,400 miles around the world..

MW: I’m sure we can handle sitting quietly in the damn lounge..

British Airways replies: Hi Maisie. We’re sorry if you were disappointed, lounge guests must be 18 or older. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

MW: Yes.. @British_Airways fully understand that, my question is why? Why can we travel alone but not use the lounge? It makes no sense.

[From Maisie’s Twitter]

You know what? This doesn’t even qualify as a Twitter rant. She did not go “Full Baldwin.” Think about that – a 17-year-old actress has more self-control and patience than Alec Baldwin. She tweeted directly to the British Airways account and vented her frustrations and she didn’t go on and on about it for days. To me, this is just a disgruntled traveler lodging a completely legitimate complaint.

Angel Haze: My romance with Ireland Baldwin is too ‘weird’ for America

Ireland Baldwin

I had no idea who Angel Haze was until Ireland Baldwin started hanging out with her. This is a picture of Ireland with Angel before her Glastonbury performance on Saturday. These two have been inseparable for a few months (they met shortly after Ireland broke up with Slater Trout). Angel and Ireland didn’t confirm their romance, but they started Instagramming all sorts of coupley things and tweeting sappy/racy stuff at each other. Such as Ireland tweeting, “Don’t let this go to your head, but you’re the best I’ve ever had… @AngelHaze.” Angel responded, “Your body is a canvas, I want to paint it red.” They finally went “official” by smooching for the paps a few weeks ago in Sherman Oaks.

Ireland Baldwin

Cute. Ireland and Angel are in that hot-and-heavy phase where they can’t get enough. I enjoy imagining Alec Baldwin’s reaction to all of the PDA. Alec was already ragey when Ireland dated a boy. Given that Alec is prone to homophobic slurs, god only knows what his reaction is to having a daughter in a same sex relationship.

Angel did an interview with the Independent ahead Glastonbury. She talked a lot about Ireland and media perception of lesbian couples:

On dating Ireland: “I don’t know if there’s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media, but everyone just calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out. It’s funny. It’s rad in some ways, it sucks in others. There are still certain limitations for women. If we were two guys, it’d be insane, negatively insane with the attention. With us it’s all being very positive, the media are like, ‘Oh they’re so cute, they’re best friends.’”

A definite confirmation: “An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now. We f— and friends don’t f—. I have never f—ed one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen. But we do f— and it’s crazy and that’s weird to say because I think about it in terms of an audience reading it and them thinking, ‘What the hell?’ But it happens.”

Love makes her more positive about life: “When you find it love it definitely amends your perspective on certain things. I was dating a guy I really liked about a year ago and being around him and realising so many things about myself totally made me hate the traditional ideas of what a relationship should be, of what romance should be. You go out and you’re searching for this Utopian feeling, butterflies; that thing where you can’t stop thinking about them. It doesn’t have to be so overwhelming.”

[From Independent]

Angel just put it all out there for us. The gossip reaction really has been cutesy about these two, but they are definitely more than friends. I don’t know whether Angel realized how all of the “f—” talk would look (and again, I’d love to see Alec’s reaction), but Angel isn’t happy with being quoted this way. Angel would also like her privacy, thank you. She tweeted a long rant about how “reporters like to take our words, alter them to their benefit and run.” This makes Angel feel like Tupac.

Here’s Angel performing at Glastonbury.

Ireland Baldwin and Angel Haze: Dating!

Back in May, Ireland Baldwin and Angel Haze posted photos of themselves making out on Twitter.

Since Ireland had been dating Slater Trout not long before and Alec’s daughter basically lives to shock the Internet, most people just figured both women were just having some fun with their followers.

Angel Haze and Ireland Baldwin: Kissing!

Based on an interview that Haze recently gave to The Independent, however, it seems that things are more serious between these two than we initially realized:

“I don’t know if there’s like some confirm or deny thing with the way relationships work in the media,” Haze told the newspaper. “But everyone calls us best friends, best friends for life, like we’re just friends hanging out.”

The rapper goes on to point out the important way in which her relationship with Baldwin is different from a friendship:

“We f–k,” Haze says bluntly. “And friends don’t f–k. I have never f–ked one of my friends. Once I see you in that way, it doesn’t happen.”

So why is their relationship so often labeled differently? Haze has a theory:

“An interracial gay couple, I mean that’s just weird for America right now.”

Well, it’s a good thing Ireland’s dad isn’t homophobic or racist.

Gary Oldman’s apology was not accepted by the ADL, so he apologized again

LMK-108277

Gary Oldman offered up one of the weirdest written apologies I think I’ve ever read. Oldman’s Playboy interview is still knocking people sideways and there’s a laundry list of offended parties, not limited to: African-Americans, Jews, the LGBT community and women. That’s a lot of people to piss off in just ONE interview. But many of you thought that Oldman made it SO MUCH worse with his bizarro-world apology to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Many of you thought the apology read like satire, or like a joke apology. Apparently, the ADL agreed.

The Anti-Defamation League was unimpressed by Oldman’s apology for defending Mel Gibson’s past anti-Semitic comments.

“We have just begun a conversation with his managing producer,” said Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the ADL. “At this point, we are not satisfied with what we have received. His apology is insufficient and not satisfactory.”

Foxman amplified those remarks on Wednesday: “While his apology may be heartfelt, Mr. Oldman does not understand why his words about Jewish control were so damaging and offensive, and it is therefore insufficient.”

“His reference to the Neal Gabler book he was reading only reinforces the notion that Jewish directors, producers and financiers are there in Hollywood as Jews. They’re not, and the book does not draw that conclusion. They are there acting as individuals. They do not pursue a Jewish agenda or strategy. They are there acting as professionals and Americans with skills working alongside many other non-Jews who are also in show business for the same reasons.”

“Mr. Oldman needs to recognize that his words, not just as they were written, but as he uttered them, are deeply offensive. And he needs to be sensitive to the fact that other remarks for which he has yet to apologize – including his disparaging remarks about the Pope and about gay people – were also deeply troubling and hurtful to many.”

“Whether they intend it or not, celebrities act as role models and bear an outsized responsibility for their words and their actions. Oldman needs to make clear not only to the Jewish community but also his fans that his words were are predicated on offensive notions and, as such, are clearly unacceptable.”

[From Variety]

Ballsy move, ADL. I applaud it! I can’t remember a time when someone this high-profile screwed up and then tried to apologize, and the offended group was like “Too bad, jackass. MORE APOLOGIZING.” Well, I guess something similar happened when Alec Baldwin tried to apologize for his homophobic hate speech and some of the GLAAD people accepted his olive branch, but for the most part, all of the LGBT-rights groups were like “Nope. Not going to happen.”

Also: does anyone else think it’s weird that it’s only the ADL issuing statements about Oldman’s interview? Where is GLAAD? Where is the NAACP? Where are the women’s rights groups decrying Oldman for defending Mel Gibson? The Advocate noted in their coverage that Oldman didn’t even mention an apology for his homophobic remarks, but that’s about it.

Oh, and Gary must have hired a crisis manager because he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and this apology was so much better:

Gary Oldman apologizes to Anti-Defamation League for his Playboy interview

wenn21046872

All week we’ve been talking about Gary Oldman’s douche explosion in a new Playboy interview. On Monday, the most offensive quotes were released through an exclusive with the Daily Mail, then Playboy hurried up and released the whole thing so we could read the offensive comments in context, but it didn’t make that much of a difference. Gary was not prodded into a weird position, his words were not taken out of context. He really defended Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin, he really used the n-word and “f-g” in the interview, and he really did talk about how Jews run Hollywood. Which seems almost quaint, because the new meme is that gay people run Hollywood, everybody knows that!!

Anyway, it’s the Jewish stuff that seems to have gotten Gary in the most trouble, which is just weird because I personally thought Gary offended African-Americans WAY more. But the Anti-Defamation League issued a statement yesterday to Deadline, which read in part:

“The British actor remarked that, ‘Mel Gibson is in a town that’s run by Jews and he said the wrong thing because he’s actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him.” The ADL says the remarks “irresponsibly feed into a classic anti-Semitic canard about supposed Jewish control of Hollywood and the film industry,” said ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman. “He should know better than to repeat and give credence to tired anti-Semitic tropes. Mel Gibson’s ostracization in Hollywood was not a matter of being ‘politically incorrect,’ as Mr. Oldman suggests, but of paying the consequences for outing himself as a bigot and a hater. It is disturbing that Mr. Oldman appears to have bought into Mr. Gibson’s warped and prejudiced world view.” Foxman adds that the assertion that Jews control Hollywood…”is an anti-Semitic stereotype based on the ‘Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion,’ the 19th Century anti-Semitic forgery that suggested Jews conspire to control major industries such as banking and finance.”

[From Deadline]

I would argue that Mel Gibson’s “ostracization” wasn’t merely because he was and is a “bigot and a hater,” but also because he’s a violent, woman-beating misogynist. Why does Mel get a pass for that consistently? We don’t hate Mel because he just said a bunch of awful things. We also hate him because he beats, threatens and stalks women. Anyway, Gary issued an open letter to the ADL, via Deadline:

Dear Gentlemen of the ADL:

I am deeply remorseful that comments I recently made in the Playboy Interview were offensive to many Jewish people. Upon reading my comments in print—I see how insensitive they may be, and how they may indeed contribute to the furtherance of a false stereotype. Anything that contributes to this stereotype is unacceptable, including my own words on the matter. If, during the interview, I had been asked to elaborate on this point I would have pointed out that I had just finished reading Neal Gabler’s superb book about the Jews and Hollywood, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews invented Hollywood. The fact is that our business, and my own career specifically, owes an enormous debt to that contribution.

I hope you will know that this apology is heartfelt, genuine, and that I have an enormous personal affinity for the Jewish people in general, and those specifically in my life. The Jewish People, persecuted thorough the ages, are the first to hear God’s voice, and surely are the chosen people.

I would like to sign off with “Shalom Aleichem”—but under the circumstances, perhaps today I lose the right to use that phrase, so I will wish you all peace–Gary Oldman.

[From Deadline]

I chuckled at “Shalom Aleichem” – nice touch, Gary. Gary Oldman: what a mensch!! I take Gary at his word that he’s sorry for what he said, but I still think A) he has more apologizin’ to do because he offended more groups than just the ADL and B) Oldman still has to grovel for a few more weeks/months. He needs to go on a Jonah Hill-style apology tour.

Oh, and TMZ spoke to Mel Gibson’s original arresting officer back in 2006. Guess what? The police officer is Jewish and has never said anything anti-Semitic in his life. Amazing.

Gary Oldman is a libertarian: ‘Conservatives in Hollywood don’t have a podium’

wenn21053943

The Daily Mail had some exclusive first excerpts from Gary Oldman’s Playboy interview yesterday, and the Mail mentioned that Playboy wasn’t going to release the interview until Friday. Well, just kidding. Playboy must have realized they were sitting on the biggest click-bait interview of the year, so they put it online this morning – you can read the full thing here. As we discussed yesterday, Gary comes across like a total douchebag, an angry bigot with a pet cause of defending violent abusers and homophobes. I’m only excerpting the most “WTF?” parts, but Gary does talk about his career (he hates watching his films) and that kind of stuff too.

Whether he’s optimistic about humanity’s future: “I think we’re up s–t creek without a paddle or a compass… Culturally, politically, everywhere you look. I look at the world, I look at our leadership and I look at every aspect of our culture and wonder what will make it better.”

Reality TV & music: “It’s like the old saying about mediocrity: The mediocre are always at their best. They never let you down. Reality TV to me is the museum of social decay. And what passes for music—it’s all on that plateau. Who’s the hero for young people today? Some idiot who can’t f–king sing or write or who’s shaking her ass and twerking in front of 11-year-olds.”

Hollywood monsters: “I know what it means to do a job. I was a stockroom boy and did a lot of sweeping up. I worked in a factory. I respect people in the service industry. What irritates me more is when people aren’t respectful. There’s a lot of nonsense behavior, especially in a place like Hollywood. The money, the power, they create little monsters.”

Sobriety: “This past March was 17 years since I last had a drink. The secret is you have to want to stop. They talk about 12 steps if you go through the program, but the only one you have to do perfectly is the first, which is to acknowledge that you have a problem and that your life is unmanageable. It’s a horrible thing to be in what people call “the disease.”

The Pope: “Oh, f–k the pope! [laughs and puts head in hands] So this interview has gone very badly. You have to edit and cut half of what I’ve said, because it’s going to make me sound like a bigot.”

Who speaks the truth: There are a number of people. A voice I particularly like is Charles Kraut-hammer. I think he’s incredibly smart. I think he’s fair, very savvy and politically insightful, so I enjoy watching him. There are artists as well, like David Bowie, where there’s an autonomy. He recorded his most recent album and didn’t even announce he was doing it. He was in a position where he thought, Listen, I haven’t produced anything for 10 years. If this is no good, then I can just put it in a cupboard and no one need ever know. But he wrote the songs, picked the cover. I’ve always admired David. I’ve known him about 30 years. We’re friends. And David can constantly reinvent himself because he’s so talented. He has a point of view.

His politics: “I would say that I’m probably a libertarian if I had to put myself in any category. But you don’t come out and talk about these things, for obvious reasons. I think [Bill Maher] would fail the test. Anyway, unlike Bill Maher, conservatives in Hollywood don’t have a podium.

On Hillary Clinton: “What can I say? I feel we need some real leadership, and it’s nowhere in sight. Look at what’s happening right now. John Kerry going off to China to talk about North Korea? What’s that going to do? The ludicrousness of it. What a waste of money. You’re going to go to the puppeteer and say, “Can you help me with the puppet?” As far as Hillary, I guess I feel like my character in The Contender, Shelly Runyon. He doesn’t want Joan Allen to become president; he just believes she isn’t the right person for the job. It’s nothing to do with the fact that she’s a woman, but he uses a bit of dirt on her to bring her down.

He hates the Golden Globes: “It’s a meaningless event. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is kidding you that something’s happening. They’re f–king ridiculous. There’s nothing going on at all. It’s 90 nobodies having a wank. Everybody’s getting drunk, and everybody’s sucking up to everybody. Boycott the f–king thing. Just say we’re not going to play this silly game with you anymore. The Oscars are different. But it’s showbiz. It’s all showbiz. That makes me sound like I’ve got sour grapes or something, doesn’t it?

[From Playboy]

If you go to the Playboy interview page 4, you can read the context for Gary’s comments about Alec Baldwin and Mel Gibson, not that it makes that much of a difference. He really does use the n-word and all of that and he claims that people can’t take a joke and he’s not a bigot, etc. The Playboy interviewer barely had to lead him into it. He also talks for a bit about Heath Ledger, Phillips Seymour Hoffman and Tony Scott, but you get the idea.

Alec Baldwin arrested in NYC, ‘he went ballistic on the cops, screaming at them’

baldwin2

Alec Baldwin was just arrested! In Touch Weekly has the exclusive photos of Alec being handcuffed and put into a cop car in New York City today (Tuesday, May 13). In Touch doesn’t know exactly what happened, but there was an eyewitness:

An eyewitness tells the mag the 56-year-old was “calm and quiet” while he was cuffed and put in the back of the police car, though another onlooker said he “went ballistic on the cops, screaming at them” earlier during the altercation.

“The incident just happened, we are waiting for details at this time,” a source with the NYPD tells In Touch.

[From In Touch Weekly]

If you’re forcing me to theorize, I think Alec probably got into it with another paparazzo (probably from the NYDN, maybe one from the NY Post) and there was some kind of violent altercation. Alec goes ballistic on the paparazzi on a regular basis, so this incident probably had a little something extra, like a fist to the face. Or perhaps some hate speech? All of which is so bizarre, because he married such a famewhore.

Update: Ah, TMZ says the arrest was actually “illegally riding his bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue.” When he was stopped, he didn’t have his ID on him. Which is so stupid – do you need to carry ID with you when you’re riding a bike?! Still, that’s no excuse to go ballistic on the cops.

Update #2: In Touch has new info – a source says: “He was stopped by officers for riding the wrong way on a street. When the officers asked for ID, he got belligerent because he had none on him. The officers placed him under arrest for disorderly conduct.” The source says Alec got one summons for riding the wrong way and another for disorderly conduct. Alec is already out of custody and his rep claims he was “not arrested or charged with a crime.”
