Johnny Depp ‘doesn’t give a f-’ about his recent box office failures

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp covers the December issue of Details to promote Mortdecai. The magazine hasn’t released the cover yet, but the interview has already gone online. The scarf monster whips out his bitch in this discussion. This interview happened weeks before Johnny’s drunk variety show at the HFAs (and also before Amber Heard was reportedly “mortified). Speaking of Amber, her dad said that she and Johnny would marry this fall. It hasn’t happened yet. Will it ever happen?

Anyway. Johnny’s very defensive over his box-office record. More specifically, he claims not to care about his three consecutive box-office bombs. He doesn’t care about critics either. F*** the critics. Perhaps Johnny anticipates the failure of Mortdecai. I watched the trailer again last week, and everyone in the theater was groaning. Not in a good way. But Johnny doesn’t care! He doesn’t need your input or your loyalty. F*** that mess:

The “ephemeral” nature of life: “As Marlon once so beautifully f***ing said to me, life is a birdsong. That’s stuck with me. For everybody, the clock’s ticking. The main thing is whether you sit there and stare at the clock in fear of your ultimate demise–which is pointless–or you just live. Marlon said, ‘Be careful, we only have so many faces in our pockets. I understood what he meant–and he’s right. But I’m not running out, you know?”

Johnny don’t care no more: “What is really satisfying is, like Marlon, getting to that place where he just didn’t give a f***. First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so f***ing much that it gets goddamn beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens. Suddenly you care enough to not give a f***, because not giving a f***, that’s the total liberation. Being game to try anything.”

On Into the Woods: “I delight in the approach we took with the Big Bad Wolf. There’s a wonderful dark humor throughout.”

On Whitey Bulger: “No one who is in fact deemed ‘evil’ ever believes they’re evil. Bulger was incredible in terms of going zero to 90 in a f***ing millisecond. And not just to coldc*ck a guy–bang-bang, forever. Yeah, that old hillbilly rage came in handy. It’s not all that far from the surface.”

Johnny’s fame is so crippling: “I’m f***in’ shy, man,” Depp says. “I’m living, in a sense, like a fugitive. I don’t like to be in social situations–it’s fine for me in a weird way, having to run and hide. Less and less, I have the opportunity to observe, because I’m the one being observed.”

On pressure for success: “It’s like being a dog at the track. They expect you to live up to some race you happened to be in and won accidentally. From that first second, you’re nothing more than a commodity. They have expectations of another Pirates. It’s great if something works. Boy, that’s killer. But God, to have that as your design … it’s ugly, I think.”

Johnny’s tired of playing the game: “The process I love. The other stuff … I can deal with being a fugitive for a bit, but I don’t know how much longer a human being really wants to be that. Actors essentially have to peddle their ass to sell the movie. All the by-products or occupational hazards of the thing … At a certain point, one has to dig deep and go, ‘Man, it is a birdsong.’”

[From Details]

I just don’t get Johnny anymore. He talks big here and tries to make us believe that he cared so much … that he had to stop caring. Worring about his work was “beleaguering,” so he stopped caring. That’s worrisome considering how much money Johnny makes. If he doesn’t care about acting, then he should step aside and let someone else worry or care about those jobs.

Johnny will eventually run out of chances to score a non-Pirates of the Caribbean hit. He has enough friends in the biz to insulate him from fallout, but it can’t last forever. Don’t get me started on how Johnny doesn’t want successful films. Daddy’s got a private island that doesn’t maintain itself.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video from Details. Johnny plays guitar because he’s so cool.

Angelina Jolie wouldn’t want to pay UK taxes: ‘I’m quite responsible about money’

jolie interview russia

Here is Angelina Jolie’s new cover for Interview Russia. It doesn’t seem to be taken from another photoshoot, so maybe she actually did a photoshoot with Interview Russia? Weird. Anyway, there’s some various news stories about Angelina. Earlier this week, there were some stories that she was shopping for some real estate… in London! Probably so she could be closer to Jack O’Connell?! (OMG, that would be amazing.) But when she was on the red carpet last night in London, she told a British outlet that she’s not really interested in buying a London home because of the proposed real estate taxes:

The actress, who is currently in London promoting new film Unbroken, jokingly told Channel 4 News’ Jon Snow that, although she’d like to have an UK base, the proposed tax could deter her.

“I have lived here before and in the future I think it would be really nice to have a foothold here for work, some kind of office would be nice,” she said.

Snow then notes that the UK’s expensive houses are expected to become more expensive with new tax plans, but suggests that this probably wouldn’t discourage Jolie too much.

“I’m quite responsible about money. That could put me off,” she laughed in response.

[From The Irish Independent]

I tend to think Angelina is pretty good with money, you know? She buys nice gifts for Brad and the kids and she flies by private plane, but she’s not spending money like it’s going out of style. She doesn’t have a crazy wardrobe and Brad is the one with the luxury real estate addiction.

Oh, and before the Unbroken premiere last night, Angelina went to Parliament! She was checking out the House of Lords “to see her close friend Arminka Helic, 46, become a member of the 1,000-year-old institution.” Jolie sat in the gallery with Sir Nicholas Soames. Angelina said she was “extremely proud” of Helic and “She’s been in many ways a mentor to me and she’s an extraordinary woman and I’m very, very honored to be here today.” After the ceremony, Angelina and some of Helic’s friends had tea in the House of Lords’ dining room. Apparently, Baroness Helic (that’s her new title) worked closely with Jolie to put together Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict. Angelina is rolling in some really amazing circles these days.

Update by Celebitchy: Here are some new photos that just came out of Angelina in Paris. She was leaving the set of French TV show “Vivement Dimanche”.

Taylor Swift never wants to be surrounded by ‘chic, jobless cling-ons’

swifty ASOS

Taylor Swift covers the new issue of ASOS. I have to hand it to Swifty, actually. I’ve just written up yet another Benedict Cumberbatch post and it struck me that Swifty has also been making the media rounds quite heavily in the past month, but she’s managed to space out her major interviews like a pro, something that some actors can’t even manage. Like, we can go days without writing about Swift and that gossip pause is useful. It makes her interviews more noteworthy, and we pay closer attention to her quotes. Anyway, here are some highlights from her ASOS interview:

She dresses for girls, not boys: “When I’m getting dressed, it’s always based on what my friends will think. They are my number one priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life.”

Her girlfriends: “My friends are the kind of people that have their own lives, and their own busy schedules, and that’s why we get along so well. A lot of ‘celebrities’ surround themselves with these very chic cling-ons who don’t really have much of a job or a passion, they follow around their celebrity BFF and provide constant affirmation for them and I’m really not interested in that kind of deal.”

She doesn’t follow style fads: “I think that as much as you should be creative and experiment, there are certain things I know are fads and so I try to steer clear of most of the obvious ones. I play the tape of my life forward and don’t wear the things that my kids or grandkids will make fun of me for wearing, [like] ‘Wow, cool, mom, cool cowboy boots that you were wearing constantly in 2006!’ For me, it’s important to be comfortable in what I’m wearing. Being comfortable means that no one’s going to be able to pull a fast one and take a picture of me that they’ll deem to be embarrassing. I don’t want to wear something so short that I’m scared there will be a wardrobe malfunction, or have a picture of me falling out of my shorts or skirt.”

Aiming for a no-drama life? “If my life had been turbulence free, no bumps in the road at all, maybe my music would be more beige, maybe the stadiums wouldn’t be so full and the mantle would be a little more empty. As much as I would really like to have saved myself heartache, embarrassment or gossip, I also know that my biggest mistakes have turned into my best lessons and sometimes my greatest career triumphs.”

[From People]

Even though I know this is just a silly transition phase for Swifty, I can’t help but feel sorry for her a little bit. She’s currently building a life around the idea that if she insulates herself enough and she stays home and never makes a mistake, then she’ll never be criticized. Like “not being criticized” is the goal now. I think she’s missing out on a lot of fun and yes, a lot of mistakes that she should be making in her early/mid-20s. These are the years when she should date weirdos and hipsters (and NOT high school boys) and figure out what she really wants. The goal shouldn’t be “not being criticized,” the goal should be “owning her mistakes and not caring if she’s criticized.”

Also – remember, several years ago, when there were a lot of rumors that Taylor was going to be cast in a potential Joni Mitchell/Carole King/Carly Simon bio-pic? Taylor was going to be Joni. Well, The Real Joni just told The Sunday Times that she “squelched” Taylor’s casting. Joni said: “I squelched that! I said to the producer, ‘All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones’. It’s just a lot of gossip, you don’t have the great scenes.” Thank God.

Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 9 Recap: What the Truck?

Things for personal for some of our favorite firefighters on Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 9.

And not necessarily in a good way.

Called to the scene of a semi-truck accident, the tension between Dawson and Casey reached a boiling point after the former disobeyed an order by the latter.

This was the first time the couple has had trouble transitioning from their home life to the office life, as the lines have now started to blur. Was Dawson right? Did she save the day ? Yes.

But Casey can’t make it look as if he’s giving her special treatment. And she must show him the respect he deserves as her boss.

At least Dawson wanted to talk about the issue, however. She gets points for that move… and Casey gets the same points deducted for becoming so closed off.

Elsewhere, watch Chicago Fire online and see how the series teased us with the possibility of Mills and Dawson rekindling their romance. Or just their friendship? For Casey fans, let’s hope it’s the latter.

On the flip relationship side, Severide and Brittany shared many tender moments this week. The former isn’t like Casey. He can easily open up and discuss his feelings. With Brittany by his side, Severide finally visited the Academy headquarters and saw Shay’s bridge.

Perhaps he can now start to heal and move on?

Severide’s honesty prompted Brittany to share her own story, as she finally revealed she was behind the wheel during the car crash that killed her sister. Not exactly a shock, but still a nice scene between the couple.

Finally, Mills has things to worry about that don’t include romance of any kind. He recognized he’s being tailed by Mr. Lullo toward the end of the hour and finally grew as frightened as he ought to be about this situation.

NOTE: Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 10 is titled “Santa Bites” and it airs on Tuesday, December 2.

What did everyone think about this installment?

Are Jennifer Lawrence & Liam Hemsworth acting on their ‘insane chemistry’?

Jennifer Lawrence

If you feel the way I do about the possibility of Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth as a couple, then you laughed at the title of this post. I watched Mockingjay: Part I last Friday, and I didn’t like it nearly as much as the other two Hunger Games movies. To me, it was a “placeholder” movie. I also couldn’t believe that JLaw and Liam’s romantic vibing had grown worse since the last movie. I laughed out loud when Gale walked into Katniss’ old kitchen and said, “This is where you kissed me … I’d have to be dead to forget that.” And then came the least romantic consensual kiss in the entire universe.

These two have never had chemistry together, right? I’ve never seen it. Even when they’re joking around during interviews, JLaw has always interacted far more with Josh Hutcherson. I’ll humor this story anyway. I find it amusing because it fits into the narrative of Chris Martin being stuck on Goop. He helped her open her Dallas pop-up store last week, which doesn’t sound like conscious uncoupling to me. He even let himself be photographed there, which is saying something.

The source of this new JLaw info — Heat magazine (via The Independent) — isn’t the most reliable. Supposedly, Jennifer and Liam grew closer during the Mockingjay: Part I tour. They’ve known each other for at least four years, but now is the time, y’all. Why? Because Liam is single, and Jennifer is upset about the ongoing Chris-Goop drama. Uh-huh:

Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth are reportedly ready to see where “fate takes them.”

“They intend on keeping things very low-key so they can both see where fate takes them,” an insider told Heat magazine.

Liam split from his fiancée Miley Cyrus last year and recently admitted Jennifer helped get him through that because she is so fun to be around and helped him live in the moment.

“They’ve always had insane chemistry, but they’ve never been single at the same time before. In fact, when they first met on the set of The Hunger Games, Liam’s then-fiancé Miley Cyrus flew out, possibly to keep an eye on them, I think, because she was jealous,” the insider said. “Jen and Liam have been friends for years and she’s always confided in him about the drama in her love life. She’s really leaned on him during all the drama with Chris [Martin].”

Even before promotional duties the pair have apparently been spending time together. Jennifer reportedly invited Liam to see her in Los Angeles so they could go over strategy for their media tour, but it led to a more personal conversation.

“Jen started pouring her heart out about Chris and things got personal. Liam knows Jen loves koala bears so, the next day, he had an enormous stuffed toy koala sent to Jen with a note saying, ‘Hold out for the perfect man,’” the source explained.

Although the signs are good, both the stars want to take things slowly. As they’ve both been burnt in the past they are in no hurry to jump straight in to a full-on romance. If they do it’s thought things could go well though, as they both prefer to fly under the radar rather than have their love life splashed around headlines.

[From The Independent]

Well, okay. I might believe there was something to this story because JLaw and Liam were both (maybe?) single for the first time during a press tour. Who knows. It’s been two weeks since somebody’s rep told People how Martin Lawrence is “still very much together. The important thing to remember is that JLaw and Liam have absolutely no chemistry together. Zero. Am I wrong?

FYI: Jennifer confirmed Liam’s claim that she ate gross things before kissing him on set. She told Nylon that she’d often eat “a sandwich with mustard and raw red onion” before they locked lips as Katniss and Gale. JLaw also said Liam is “my best friend.” I think Jennifer has a lot of best friends. I’ve heard of at least five at this point, which is fine. These two are probably not hitting it. JLaw should get with someone far more exciting than faux-Thor.

Lindsay Lohan is ‘doing better’ & she’s ‘determined to be a movie star again’


Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan out and about in London two weekend ago, plus some other photos I just never got around to posting, including some pics of Lindsay at a makeup event last week (those pics are at the end of the post). To her credit, Lindsay hasn’t been getting pap’d very often in the past month. I have a theory about that! I think she was partying pretty hard in rehearsals for Speed-the-Plow and then she partied hard the first few weeks of the show. But she couldn’t deal with the schedule or the parties, so she actually made the choice to not party as much. Amazing, right? Well, what if this is a whole new Cracken? Radar’s sources say that Lindsay has been doing so well in London, she wants to come back to LA and relaunch her film career. Er… good luck with that.

Is Lindsay finally ready to make a career comeback? The actress will soon be returning to the U.S. when her London play Speed-the-Plow closes on Nov. 29 — and she’s thinking about her next steps in life.

“Lindsay is doing better than she has in years!” a close friend of the once-troubled star tells exclusively. “Lindsay is determined to be a movie star again.”

“Lindsay plans to return home to her family in New York for a bit and is then heading to L.A. because she has three big movies that she is getting ready to star in,” the source reveals.

According to IMDB, Lohan is playing the lead in three several projects listed as in ‘pre-production.’ In the upcoming films Soul Carriers and Life Travelers, Lohan will star opposite James Duvall, 42, and in Six Gun Dead, she will play opposite Eric Roberts, 58.

“She almost has a clean slate after all of her legal issues,” the source notes, referring to her probation in the necklace theft case, which an L.A. Superior Court judge ended on Nov. 6. Following the court’s decision, Lohan’s attorney Shawn Holley said, “The judge was pleased, the prosecutors were pleased and of course I’m pleased that Lindsay’s doing well on probation, with her career, and generally with her life.”

As Radar previously reported, those close to the 28-year-old Mean Girls star insist that “the old Lindsay is back” and that “she has allowed all of her old friends back into her life.”

“She is still sober and we are all very supportive,’ the friend tells Radar. “We always will be.”

[From Radar]

Legally speaking, I think the state of California was just tired of dealing with her crack drama, so everybody turned a blind eye and let Lindsay complete her probation period without fulfilling all of the requirements. As for Lindsay returning to a career in films… at this point, she’s been a cracked-out mess longer than she was ever an A-list actress, and Lindsay pretty much thinks she’s going to be a huge movie star again every three to six months. She’s still talking about winning an Oscar someday, you know. But… if she is doing better (judge for yourself), then God bless. While I don’t think she’s in a good place or anything, I think she’s better right now than she was two or three years ago.

Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 7 Recap: Ready to Move On?

We kicked off Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 7 with a flashback to a kiss between Jane and Rafael.

No, not the romantic one that concluded last Monday night’s installment, but the first ever lip lock between the pair, back when Jane was 18 years old.

Why didn’t the relationship work out back then? Because Rafael never called, a fact Xo has not forgotten all this time later.

But Jane insists that Rafael has changed, an argument helped when he shows up at her door and says he wants to take her on a date.

Jane says she needs to go very slow, though, considering the baggage (sort of crazy ex-wife for him, unborn child for her, etc.) and her recent break-up, which she appears to be handling well.

That is, until Michael finds flowers sent by Rafael – along with a card and a mention of their kiss – and tells Jane that she isn’t “the person I thought you were.” OUCH.

Later that night, Jane and her friends end up at a club and, wouldn’t you know it, Rafael is there, too! Jane can’t take her eyes off of him, but she refuses to jump into a relationship out of respect for Michael.

Rafael gives a speech about taking advantage of the time they have and of the baby on the way and it inspires Jane to leave the club with him.

As you can see when you watch Jane the Virgin online, they head to Target and then to the hotel pool, just chatting away until dawn.

The night was rated PG, but Jane and Rafael fell sleep, prompting a freak-out from Xo, who called all of Jane’s friends to track her down. It also prompts a chew-out from the head nun when Jane shows up in the same dress the next morning.

Later that day, Xo and Jane have a heart-to-hear about making “smart choices,” with the former understanding her daughter better than she lets on. She has decided to end her budding romance with Rogelio and went out on a date here with the dad of one of her dance school students.

As for Michael? He ends up fighting with his partner about the Sin Rostro investigation and then totally getting it on with her.

Petra also had some sex this week, with former fiancé Lachlan. She does so to get the $350,000 needed to pay off Ivan, which Petra will receive upon passing along information about Rafael.

We eventually learn that Lachlan and Petra conspired to get Rafael fired, which forces Rafael to call and cancel their dinner date.

He tells her he’s on his way to Mexico City.

To what end? The series takes a week off and then returns on December 8 with Jane the Virgin Season 1 Episode 8, as previewed here:

Castle Season 7 Episode 8 Recap: Wrong Side of the Tracks

Detective Esposito ended up on the wrong side of the tracks on Castle Season 7 Episode 8, almost literally:

He was one of many taken hostage by a captor with a mysterious agenda.

Espo as a Hostage

For many, the Presidential address (regarding the non-indictment in Ferguson, Missouri) cut into the opening few minutes of the hour.

But the catalyst for the culprit to take so many hostage was less important than the question of how Espo (and his new transit cop buddy) would extricate himself from this dangerous situation.

It wouldn’t be easy, considering the man in charge was wearing a suicide vest that would detonate if he died.

Due to a surveillance camera on board the train, Rick, Beckett and company were able to keep an eye on Espo… until the bomber nearly figured out its presence just as Espo was set to make a grab him in concert with the HRT squad (their plan was communicated via pizza box, naturally).

Lanie was concerned for her man, of course, and ended up helping in the investigation.

She took note of the hostage taker’s sickly appearance, which we later learned was due to him exposing himself to a flu strain in order to create an epidemic, thereby making a certain lab (that had stockpiled the vaccine) rich.

Espo and his pal jumped their captor in the end, using a shoelace to secure his “dead man’s switch.” Was the detective exposed to the virus? Nope, he was back hugging his friends and colleagues (including a big one for Lanie) not long after the ordeal was over.

Go watch Castle online via TV Fanatic in order to see how Espo came to a realization about Lanie and decide: are these two finally headed toward something “real,” as Espo said?

Check out the following video, meanwhile, to get a look at Castle Season 7 Episode 9, which will take Rick and Kate to the movies:

SoulPancake Asks: Who Have You Lost Touch With? Feel Good Video Of The Day

soulpancake's who have you lost touch withTrust the good people at SoulPancake to ask a thought-provoking question! This is part of their ‘Man on the Street’ series, and this particular video is titled ‘Who Have You Lost Touch With?’ It asks people to identify someone they haven’t spoken to in a while. RELATED: Another feel-good video is when SoulPancake invited people to share a cup of success.

The range of responses is really interesting. One person talked about his mother who passed away. Others talked about old friends or lovers that they haven’t spoken to in a while. Some people identified someone they had a brief, but intense, connection with. Take a look at the video below. As you get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, give it some thought: who have you lost touch with over the years?

Kendra Wilkinson Her Mom Slams Kendra For Leaving Kids For Reality TV

Kendra Wilkinson Films Her Reality Show In Toluca LakeOh boy. I think it’s safe to say the feud between Kendra Wilkinson and her mother, Patti Wilkinson, that reignited last summer is still burning strong. The two had called a brief truce right after word of Hank Baskett’s affair broke, but things soured between them soon afterwards. RELATED: Kendra Wilkinson is estranged from her mom. Again.

Patti told a reporter:

Kendra and I have no contact. We do not talk, it’s really sad. I don’t think she cares. She’s written us off.”

Their latest falling-out reportedly occurred when Kendra secretly reached out to her father and even went to visit him with Hank and the kids. Kendra’s father is said to have deserted the family when she and her brother were kids, so Patti didn’t exactly appreciate it.

Now Kendra is apparently jetting off to film ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ What does Patti think of her daughter’s new gig?

One of her friends told me. My question would be only, ‘Who’s taking care of the children?’”

She supposedly told the reporter that she thinks Kendra is “abandoning” her kids for reality TV. It sounds like Kendra has to work. Hank’s NFL career is over, after all. Patti said she’s done with the entertainment business.

I want to back out of all the Hollywood stuff — it has destroyed my family.”

It really is too bad that Kendra and Patti are still on the outs. I can’t help but wonder if talking to the press is helping anything. Hopefully these two will patch things up. At the end of the day, family is all you’ve got.
