Kim Kardashian wore jorts for a matinee movie date with ‘Ye: awful, unflattering?

FFN_Kardashian_West_FF10_FF9_101914_51562589

Did Kim Kardashian borrow Benedict Cumberbatch’s unfortunate jorts? OMG. Here are some photos of Kim and Kanye West out and about in Calabasas yesterday (they went to a movie). Kim’s outfit is horrendous from the front, but the back view is particularly… unsettling. I’m guessing that Kanye dressed her, just because this seems like the kind of outfit he enjoys on his Real Doll. We’ve actually seen this braless top on Kim before, so she’s recycling it for this outing. The jorts are… well, I can’t remember a time when I’ve seen Kim in jorts. She should never do this again.

Kim turns 34 years old tomorrow. I always forget her age for some reason, although people made a big deal about it back when she turned 30. I personally think she only married Kris Humphries because she wanted to be engaged/married by her 30th birthday and that was literally the only reason she went with Humphries. For this year’s birthday, Kim is going to have a huge party at the Venetian’s TAO nightclub in Las Vegas. TAO is always paying Kardashians to host parties, so I would imagine Kim is picking up a nice paycheck to host her birthday event there.

After the movie, Kim and Kanye went through the drive-thru of Taco Bell. Ew!!! Something about that outfit and the thought of Mexican food… ew.

Benedict Cumberbatch covers Flaunt with no dragonflies in sight: hot or not?

bendy flaunt

Benedict Cumberbatch got some high-profile magazine covers to promote The Imitation Game. In addition to his Out Magazine cover profile (we covered that yesterday), we’re still waiting on his Elle UK special edition, and they’ve already promised us an eight-page editorial plus an in-depth interview. Bendy also covers the new issue of Flaunt, and I’m kind of tired of waiting to see quotes from this piece, so that’s why I’m covering it now. Plus, some of you have already read the profile and claim it’s not all that.

So, enjoy these Flaunt photos, plus an extra Cumberp0rny video from Flaunt. Benedict talks about… something. I wasn’t really paying attention because of his hands and arms and the way he positions his body. And I thank the Cumberlord for allowing Benedict to do all of the TIG photoshoots while he still had his Cumbercurls. I would be super-depressed if I had to see tons of photos with Benedict’s terrible short hair.

PS… Tom Hiddleston did a Flaunt cover editorial a few years back which became rather infamous, mostly because of the dragonfly theme. That is when I started referring to the Hiddlestoners as Dragonflies. Will Benedict’s Flaunt editorial become that iconic? Probably not. But I still enjoyed it.

Benedict Cumberbatch covers Out Mag, talks bullies, sexual experimentation

bendy out

Before you even read Benedict Cumberbatch’s Out Magazine interview, I’m going to need all of the ride-or-die Cumberbitches to check out Out Mag’s excellent 15-photo slideshow of our lovely otter – go here to see. Aren’t those photos lovely? The close-ups especially. And people are saying that the sad, ripped up sweater is actually from Benedict’s closet. Does this boy own any decent, non-torn casual clothing? I need to take an otter shopping. Anyway, as for the Out profile… it’s a whole lotta Bendy. Since it’s Out Mag, there’s a lot of discussion about Alan Turing’s sexuality and about Bendy’s all-boys’ boarding school days. You can read the piece here. Some highlights:

Alan Turing’s posthumous royal pardon: “It’s an insult for anybody of authority or standing to sign off on him with their approval and say, ‘Oh, he’s forgiven.’ The only person who should be [doing the] forgiving is Turing, and he can’t because we killed him. And it makes me really angry. It makes me very angry.”

The Imitation Game as a parable for intolerance: “It’s not a history lesson — it’s a warning that this could very easily happen again. People are being beheaded in countries right now because of their beliefs or sexual orientations. It’s terrifying. It’s medieval — a beheading! I’d take up arms against someone who was telling me I had to believe in what they believed or they would kill me. I would fight them. I would fight them to the death. And, I believe, the older you get, you have to have an idea of what’s right or wrong. You can’t have unilateral tolerance. You have to have a point where you go, ‘Well, religious fundamentalism is wrong.’ ”

Sherlock and slash/fan fiction: “People keep coming up to me and saying, ‘Oh, he’s so sexy, do you think [Sherlock would be] interested in me?’ Do you not think he’d just look at you twice and tell you everything you hate about yourself and crumple you up like a little bit of paper and flick you away? He’s a machine and brutal and ruthless and has no time for the distractions of your fawning. Because, you know, they either want to make John [Watson] into a sort of cute little toy, or me into a cute toy, or we’re f–king in space on a bed, chained together.”

He loved boarding school: “Because you have that complete experience of being a child. You are not going to and from a place all the time, and I was very, very hungry for company. My mom and dad, poor them — I used to ask every Christmas and birthday for a brother or sister. That’s all I really wanted when I was growing up, because I was an only child.”

Same-sex experimentation: “While there was experimentation [at Brambletye], it had never occurred to me as ‘Oh, this is that.’ It was just boys and their penises, the same way with girls and vaginas and boobs. It wasn’t out of a desire.”

Fame: “The work motivates me most, not the byproducts. By and large, I ignore them.”

[From Out Magazine]

There’s so much more. He tells a story about how Harrow (his posh boarding school) was not very gay-friendly and when two boys were “outed,” they were bullied by other students and the young Bendy told off the bullies. He also talks about how he hates being surrounded by guards because “then it just becomes an extension of you” and you get blamed for guards getting aggressive with innocent fans. It’s a good piece!

Oh, and I know you guys want the Flaunt stuff, but I’m still waiting for Flaunt to officially release their cover story and stuff. We’ll probably have it later this week.

Benedict Cumberbatch films ‘Hollow Crown’ in armor: hot or not?

FFN_Cumberbath_Ben_FFUK_exc_100914_51557260

Here are some photos of Benedict Cumberbatch filming The Hollow Crown on October 9th. These photos were only released yesterday and I missed them completely! So enjoy. Our Cumberbatch in armor. With a bad wig. And a horse. I feel sorry for the horse, actually. I know there are horses that enjoy trotting around in armor and such, but… yeah, I feel sorry for the horse. The horse is wearing armor and carrying a heavy, armored man.

In other Cumbernews, The Imitation Game doesn’t come out in the UK and US until November, but Benedict is already doing some advanced promotional work on TV. He’s just been added to this week’s Graham Norton Show, which films on Friday, I guess. The other guests will be Miranda Hart, Timothy Spall and Maroon 5. Benedict and Graham Norton seem to get along very well, and whenever Benedict has a big project to promote, he usually does Norton’s show. I think this will be Benedict’s third time? And usually the Cumberbitches come out in full force!

Oh, and there have been sightings of Cumberbatch in Edinburgh. It’s something to do (maybe) with the secret girlfriend Sophie Hunter? I have no idea. But I’m kind of over the secret girlfriend speculation, you guys. I think Benedict is dating Sophie Hunter and they’re just being discreet about it. It’s not the end of the world and there’s no reason to stalk his every move because of it.

Benedict Cumberbatch steps out in London, talks about Alan Turing’s sexuality

cumberbatch tree

First off, Vanity Fair has a nice little mini-pictorial/spotlight on Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne in the Jennifer Lawrence issue. Eddie got two photos (including one with a basket full of puppies) while Benedict just got one photo – Benedict looking brooding and sexy in a tree. As one does. I have to say, if I came upon an alien-otter in a tree, I might freak out a little bit and not in a good way. Benedict was also out in London with Keira Knightley and Keira’s husband on Saturday night. I’m including some of those photos at the end of the post. A blonde woman is behind Benedict but I’m almost positive that’s his publicist. No secret girlfriend, eh? (Yes, I’m trolling.)

Meanwhile, Benedict has a lovely new interview with NME. It’s mostly about Alan Turing and how much Benedict loves all things Turing. You can tell he’s really proud of this film. I’m not sure how much you want me to discuss Benedict’s quotes about Turing? While I find Turing fascinating and I’m half in love with Benedict, the combination of Benedict talking about Turing is oddly anticlimactic. So you can read the full piece here and here are some highlights that I found interesting:

Benedict on the awards season buzz: “If it gets people to see the film, frankly, that is all I care about. It’s early days and very flattering of course but there are a lot of other extraordinary films and performances people haven’t seen yet. But if it creates an interest for people to see what all the fuss is about then that’s fantastic because our jobs as storytellers are made easier if there’s an audience. And more importantly for me, having had some experience with this man I really want his story to be known and our film to be a launching point for a proper celebration of Alan Turing.”

The comparisons of Sherlock and Alan Turing: “Well, I’m limited by who I am and what I look like but at the same time they’re utterly different people. Alan doesn’t swish around in a long coat with curly hair demonstrating how brilliant he is… He’s a very quiet, stoic, determined and different type of hero. He’s smart but an outsider because of the conditions of his personal life. As far as the similarity that he’s socially awkward… What you see in the film is an evolution in him which is humanising. That happens in some aspects with Sherlock but I didn’t read the script and think, ‘This is Sherlock in tweed’. I liked how uncompromising he was but that’s always a stong trait in strong characters. I have played stupid people as well. I want to point that out. So if anybody’s got any more stupid roles for me, great, bring ‘em on!”

Approaching Turing’s homosexuality: “His sexuality is something contained that is expressed in the film but not shown explicitly. There is no heterosexuality expressed in the film. So what we show in his behaviour is sadly true to his story. He had to suppress his sexuality, make it private, make it something secret. When he talks about his sexuality in the film it shows his complete honesty, guilelessness, innocence. He was aware of the risks but at the same time wasn’t willing to cave in to the intolerance and potential permutations of confessing such a thing. Some people own him as martyr or as standard-bearer for a cause. I think he was just very true to himself, which is a form of martyrdom, but he didn’t make a political statement out of it.”

[From NME]

That’s an interesting way of saying it – “There is no heterosexuality expressed in the film.” They can’t make Turing an out-and-proud gay man because he wasn’t, but he didn’t live a blatant lie and Travolta his way through life either. There is no hetero caricature. There is an absence of heterosexuality. That’s fascinating.

Oh, and good news! Benedict is in the new issue of Flaunt Mag. I’ve seen some of the editorial on Tumblr, but I’m not going to cover it until the cover is released.

Here are some photos of Benedict out in London Saturday night. I can’t help it, you guys. I loathe his haircut.

Benedict Cumberbatch steps out for London ‘TIG’ photocall: sexy or basic?

wenn21807482

Here are some photos of Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley at the photocall for The Imitation Game for the London Film Festival, which opens today. TIG is the big opening night premiere. I don’t have the designer IDs for either of their ensembles. I kind of hate Benedict’s outfit, is that okay? Do I have to turn in my Cumberbitch Badge? This man can only really do formal red carpet-wear. Everything else he wears is usually kind of… bad. Wrong. Poorly styled. Like, I would have liked that blue shirt/sweater if he had unbuttoned the top button and not put the jacket over it. Also: the Cumbercurls are no longer in the building. His hair is much too short these days. SOB.

Keira recently spoke about her long-standing friendship with Benedict. They’ve known each other since they did Atonement and you can tell that she’s a big fan:

”Actually, I think I’m quite beastly to him as well. We’re sort of mutually beastly to each other. But Benedict’s been a friend ever since [2007] and it’s always nice to work with friends. You look at him in ‘Atonement’ and he’s all horrible and a rapist and quite disgusting, and in ‘Imitation Game’ he’s a tortured genius who’s affable and misunderstood. He can just do anything really.”

[From Contact Music]

I’m also including the new December cover of Elle UK, a special edition cover featuring a glorious close-up of Benedict’s beautiful otter face. They haven’t released anything from the cover feature at all, except to say that Benedict’s photoshoot was with an animal. I have my fingers crossed that he did a photoshoot with an otter. COME ON!! Please!

Tom Hiddleston to star in a TV miniseries of John le Carre’s ‘The Night Manager’

wenn20621470

I’m kind of a dragonfly for John la Carre. He writes a lot of espionage/international intrigue books, many of which are made into solid-to-excellent films. My favorite is probably The Constant Gardener (an extremely underrated film), but I also enjoyed the last version of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Anyway, another le Carre book is being adapted for the screen… the small screen. The Night Manager is going to be made into some kind of multi-episode TV project (it sounds like a miniseries, I guess) and your cuddlebear Tommy Hiddleston is going to be in it. Release the dragonflies!

Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston are coming to TV in an espionage drama. The duo is set to star in a TV adaptation of John le Carre’s The Night Manager, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter, with WME fielding multiple offers from U.S. networks for a straight-to-series pickup. The drama is being developed in partnership with the BBC, which will air the series in the U.K. Ink Factory (A Most Wanted Man) is producing. David Farr (Hanna, Spooks) will pen the adaptation.

Published in 1993, le Carre’s Night Manager follows Jonathan Pine, a British soldier turned luxurious hotel night auditor. Pine crosses paths with a French-Arab woman named Sophie with ties to Richard Onslow Roper, an English black marketer who specializes in weapons. The woman provides Pine with incriminating documents, which he forwards to a friend in British intelligence. After Sophie winds up dead, Pine works with intelligence operatives and goes undercover as part of a sting against Roper to avenge Sophie’s death.

For Laurie, the series would mark the in-demand actor’s return to TV following his Emmy-nominated run on Fox’s House. The show also will mark Hiddleston’s largest U.S. TV role to date. The Thor and Avengers star previously featured in British black comedy Suburban Shootout, Wallander and more recently had voice roles on Robot Chicken and Family Guy.

[From THR]

I’m guessing Tommy wanted to do some big, splashy TV project so he too could win an Emmy, just like his BFF Benedict Cumberbatch. No, it’s far more likely that Tom is just doing what so many British actors do, which is bounce around from film, TV and theatre projects because they don’t really give a crap about the American elitism of “movie stardom.” British actors just like to work and they don’t care about the medium. Plus, this sounds like a very prestigious project and it’s always nice to see Hugh Laurie getting interesting work. I’m assuming Hiddles would play Pine?

Tom Hiddleston beat Benedict Cumberbatch for ‘best-dressed man’ gong

wenn21270886

Glamour UK has released their list of the best-dressed celebrities in the world. As you can imagine, with a British publication, the list is definitely skewed towards the Brits. Before we talk about the ladies, let’s discuss the men. Apparently, Tom Hiddleston – a man who has barely been on any red carpets in 2014 – won “best dressed man.” I know there’s some kind of blood feud between the Cumberbitches and the Dragonflies, but Benedict really has been seen much more this year. Surely Bendy should have won this particular gong? #RememberTheVelvet

The men’s list, in descending order: Tom Hiddleston, Robert Pattinson (RLY?), David Beckham (that’s fine), Benedict Cumberbatch (#Velvet) and Henry Cavill. The only problem I have with that top five is Sparkles, honestly. Robert Pattinson’s suit game has improved, but that boy still has some styling issues.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were crowned “best-dressed couple,” which is funny because no one likes Justin Theroux’s skinny jeans and guyliner. The second best dressed couple? Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, which… eh, okay. Then Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, then Posh and Becks, then Beyonce and Jay-Z. Sure.

As for the best-dressed women… Jennifer Lawrence is #1. I’m sure Bedhead will have stuff to say about this, but personally… I think J-Law is still finding her style. She’s a young woman with access to any designer she could ever want, but I get the feeling she just wears what she’s told to wear. She’s not a fashionista… yet. She might be at some point. The rest of the top ten:

1) Jennifer Lawrence
2) Lupita Nyong’o
3) Kristen Stewart
4) Emma Watson
5) Blake Lively
6) Angelina Jolie
7) The Duchess of Cambridge
8) Katy Perry
9) Jennifer Aniston
10) Emma Stone

Lupita loves clothes and she delivers noteworthy style every time she walks onto a red carpet. To me, Lupita > J-Law. Kristen Stewart? She’s improving but I tend to find her one of the worst-dressed young starlets. Emma Watson is fine, Blake Lively is meh, Angelina Jolie is single-handedly bringing back the sack dress. Duchess Kate’s style is… eh, it’s not my cup of tea, but I’m thrilled that Kate didn’t get #1 on this list. I probably would have moved Emma Stone up higher on this list. Kate Moss too – Moss didn’t crack the top ten, how weird is that?

First official photo of Benedict Cumberbatch as Richard III: bad wiglet?

cumby1

Let’s do this. We need to have a conversation about Benedict Cumberbatch’s Richard III wiglet. IT IS AWFUL. There. Conversation over!

The BBC’s Twitter account issued a flurry of tweets today about Richard III, The Hollow Crown and they ended up releasing the first official photo from Cumby’s turn. He’s currently filming his part in The Hollow Crown, and Judi Dench has said that they’re probably going to be filming for the next five months. You can read more about the production here. The BBC is really laying out some money for these actors and for a really high-quality production. Bendy is going to be in the Henry VI part and Richard III, obviously.

I am by no means a Shakespeare expert and Richard III is far from my favorite play, so maybe I’m not qualified to make this kind of assessment, but… why does Richard look so awful? Like, why are they styling Benedict to look so mangy and unwashed? I blame the wiglet. With a better wig, this wouldn’t be so bad. Spend a little money on a good wig, BBC.

By the way, I think the BBC released this first “official” photo because Cumberbitches were stalking the set and tweeting photos.

Benedict Cumberbatch ‘is a true gentleman & a good actor,’ says Judi Dench

TIG poster

Am I the only one staring at Benedict Cumberbatch’s bum? I know I’m supposed to be thinking about Alan Turing and WWII and the Oscar race, but now all I can think about is Cumby’s tweedy bum. Harvey Weinstein is running a brilliant campaign, eh? Vote for Cumby’s Tweedy Bum!! As for The Imitation Game, Benedict spoke to Vanity Fair briefly while he was at TIFF. It’s a nice clip. What self-respecting Cumberbitch asks Benedict about his favorite cheese though?

More Bendy news… he’s about to begin filming on Richard III, with Dame Judi Dench playing Cecily, Duchess of York, in the continuation of the BBC’s Hollow Crown series. The production begins next week and it will probably go on for the next… six months or so. Bendy was the one to approach Judi – publicly! – and ask her to be part of it. As it turns out, he’s known Judi all of his life.

Dame Judi Dench agreed to star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC’s Richard III after the Sherlock actor propositioned her during a Shakespeare masterclass at the Hay Festival. However, Mandrake can disclose that the pair are in fact old friends.

“I knew him when he was a little boy at prep school before he went on to Harrow,” Dame Judi tells me. “His mother, Wanda Ventham, was at the Royal Central School of Drama a year ahead of me.”

“He is a true gentleman and a thoroughly good actor, which helps,” she says. “We start on Monday and it’s a huge project, six months in filming.”

Meanwhile, the actress says it is unlikely she will attend the Oscars next year. Despite being nominated for the Best Actress award, Dame Judi Dench was notably absent at this year’s awards after filming in India for the sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel clashed with the ceremony. Now, the actress, who turns 80 this year, confides that she is in no hurry to make an appearance.

“No, I don’t think I’ll attend,” she tells me. “I don’t imagine so. I mean I love them but I never like to speculate on these things.”

[From The Telegraph]

I always sort of wondered how Judi treated the younger actors she’s often paired with, if it’s “motherly” or something like that. It’s not. If you’ve ever seen her interact with Daniel Craig, she’s amazing. She’s flirtatious and silly and really funny. I feel like the younger men around her just love her completely.

PS… Bendy was out last night in London. You can see the pics here.
