Kristen Stewart Coffee & Cigarette Run

Exclusive... Kristen Stewart Stops For Coffee & CigarettesClearly Kristen Stewart is a devoted practitioner of the “starving actress” diet: coffee and cigarettes! The former ‘Twilight’ star was seen hanging out with a gal pal. The two picked up coffee and cigarettes while out and about. RELATED: Kristen Stewart is taking time off from movies to pursue other forms of art.

Kristen said she planned on taking some time off from movies to focus on other art forms. She planned to buy a place in downtown LA for this experimental period. I wonder if she’s already got her place? A loft sounds like the perfect setup for her.

Perhaps she’s fueling up for an artistic session of painting or pottery or something. Maybe she’ll let us see what she’s working on at a later date. It would make for some interesting interviews when she’s promoting her next movie, right? Kristen has plenty of films lined up in post-production, so we’ll be seeing more of her.

Nick Loeb claims he split with Sofia Vergara because she was too career-focused

wenn21846043

Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb broke up months ago. Sofia is now with Joe Manganiello, which… I mean, I guess I get that. I can’t imagine that Joe is very demanding emotionally, you know? He’s just sort of there, like a big slab of beefcake. Sofia is probably happy to be with someone unchallenging. But her ex, Nick Loeb, still has feelings. In an interview last month, Nick threw major shade at Sofia, saying that he “likes a girl to dress a little classier” and that Sofia’s vavavoom wasn’t his thing. Well, Nick is still giving interviews about Sofia. And he’s still butthurt.

When Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb split in late May, it was assumed they were geographically incompatible (she lives in Los Angeles while he calls New York City home). But the publicity man explained to InTouch this week that while he wanted a family, the Colombian beauty (who already has a 22-year-old son) was more interested in fame.

‘She’s focused on her career,’ the 39-year-old New Yorker said. ‘The most important thing for me is to get married and have kids.’

The Loeb’s Crunch founder added, ‘I completely understand. She’s at the height of her career, and, as she says all the time, she’s taking advantage of her 15 minutes of fame because who knows how long that will last.’

At age 42, Vergara is at the height of her career with a hit TV series (Modern Family) and starring roles in movies (such as Fading Gigolo). The cover girl also has numerous endorsement deals and her own perfume, which launched in September.

Loeb added her new beau Joe Manganiello, 37, is a smarter choice for the actress. ‘They are much better suited for each other,’ he offered.

The heir to the Loeb fortune did not clear up whether he was dating Sharon Stone, 56, or not. The two were caught getting cozy in New York City earlier this month, according to UsWeekly. Stone and Vergara worked together on Fading Gigolo, which was released in 2013.

[From The Daily Mail]

Er… is this shade-throwing? I think it is. I think it’s patronizing to say something like “of course she wants to focus on her career, she’s getting older and she’s not going to be famous for much longer.” I’ve always liked that about Sofia though – she’s smart about her endorsements and all of her business deals. And why not? Why should that be a bad thing? And yes, she already did the mom thing. Now it’s her time. As for Nick possibly dating Sharon Stone… er, nothing says “I want to settle down and have babies” like canoodling a 50-something cougar.

Oh, and Nick and Sofia were at The Angel Ball this week, but not together. Sofia was doing an interview with Extra when Nick came up behind her and whispered something in her ear. Sofia’s reaction is… interesting. People have described this as “awkward” but to my eye, Nick is trying to say hello to her and Sofia gives him a bitchy look and goes back to her interview in a split second. Sassy!

Kristen Stewart Taking Time Off From Movies To Make Other Forms Of Art

Exclusive... Kristen Stewart Enjoys A Smoke Break‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart wants to practice some art that doesn’t require getting in front of a camera. She revealed her plans in an interview to try her hand at some other forms of art besides acting. RELATED: Kristen Stewart rocks leather overalls: love it or hate it?

Kristen explained to Us Weekly:

I’m taking some time off because I’ve been working for two years. I’m an actor and that’s my art form, and because I started that so young, I’ve always felt intimidated and insufficient when I think about other forms of art I want to create.
“I’m going to take so much time off. I’m going to buy a live-work space in downtown L.A. and I’m going to make some [stuff] with my hands. Literally, I made that decision a few weeks ago. I’m making a short film. I’m making a bunch of stuff. I don’t know how I’ll put it out. But I’m not going to hold it so preciously close to me. I write all the time.”

One thing Kristen won’t be doing, however, is just sitting around, doing nothing.

One thing that will stay with me forever is, I really love work. I love hard work. I’m somewhat OK with the isolation. At times I realize, that’s so not normal. It’s weird but it gives me the opportunity to do what I love.”

Well, how isolated can Kristen be in downtown LA? Besides, she has a movie listed in pre-production called ‘The Big Shoe’ and several movies in post-production, so it’s not like we won’t be seeing Kristen. That’s probably for the best for her, career-wise.

Hollywood is full of stories of A-listers who decided to take a few weeks off and that “break” lasted for years. Sandra Bullock, for example, was one of the top actresses in Hollywood in the 90s when she decided to take off a few months. That “break” lasted for about years until she had a career resurgence with ‘The Proposal’ and ‘The Blind Side.’ Not everyone gets as lucky as Sandra, though! It’ll be interesting to see what Kristen creates during her self-imposed hiatus.

Kristen Stewart to Take Hiatus from Acting

Kristen Stewart recently told Vanity Fair that folks don’t know dick sh-t about her personal life.

But the former Twilight Saga star has now given us a look inside her professional life, telling USA Today in a new interview that she needs a break.

Kristen Stewart in NYC

“I’m taking some time off because I’ve been working for two years,” the 24-year-old said. “I’m an actor and that’s my art form, and because I started that so young, I’ve always felt intimidated and insufficient when I think about other forms of art I want to create,” she explained.”

Stewart has been starring in films pretty much non-stop since she was 14 years old. Her first major role was opposite Jodie Foster in Panic Room.

“I’m going to take so much time off. I’m going to buy a live-work space in downtown L.A. and I’m going to make some [stuff] with my hands. Literally, I made that decision a few weeks ago,” Stewart continued.

“I’m making a short film. I’m making a bunch of stuff. I don’t know how I’ll put it out. But I’m not going to hold it so preciously close to me. I write all the time.”

The ex-girlfriend of Robert Pattinson says she embraces “hard work,” but she could go for some alone time right about now.

“I’m somewhat OK with the isolation. At times I realize, that’s so not normal. It’s weird but it gives me the opportunity to do what I love.”

Happy Birthday, Kristen Stewart!


Hooray for Kristen Stewart! The actress is now 24 years old!

Minnie Driver criticizes showbiz parents: They’re ‘desperate and conflicted’

Minnie Driver

Minnie Driver is promoting her new movie, Beyond the Lights. Her role is that of a “nasty Hollywood momager.” I wonder if she based her character upon Kris Jenner. That’s the only way Kris should ever be an inspiration to anyone. Minnie spoke to Us Weekly about how she doesn’t think that children should be allowed to act. That’s quite the sweeping statement because so many tv shows and movies include kid and teenage roles. Minnie even works with teenagers on About a Boy, which could make things awkward for Minnie. The parents of her tv son, Benjamin Stockham, may not appreciate the shade. Minnie has a point, so I’ll let her take it away:

On showbiz parents: “I’m not really for the whole kids in show business thing. It’s really difficult even when you meet lovely parents of children who are in show business. There is still the fact that they’re not having a childhood. They are out of their element, and in the element of an adult world which is not always appropriate. It seems to me there is always a certain level of desperation that makes a person put a child in that position.”

Her momager character: “That’s an interesting place to start for a character: Someone who’s desperate and conflicted. And if that’s overshadowing everything else, it doesn’t matter how nice or kind or empathetic they may be elsewhere. The overriding thing is quite fierce. You love them, of course you love them, but you want this other thing. It’s the realm of the hungry ghosts. That’s really interesting for an actor. You can’t be a villain. Villains aren’t interesting unless there is the un-villainous part of them. You really understand why she does what she does … You really get it. It’s not from a malicious point of view. She’s not a sociopath, she’s not evil. She just desperately did not want to go back to that poverty and she wanted something better for her kid.”

[From Us Weekly]

I guess we won’t be seeing Minnie’s own son, Henry (6), onscreen anytime soon. It will be interesting to see if Minnie keeps this perspective if Henry expresses interest in acting as he grows older. I see what she’s saying. We’ve seen so many showbiz kids get sucked into drugs and a party lifestyle. These kids turn into bratty divas and then fail to make the transition into adult acting. Minnie’s right. These kids should have a real childhood. They have the whole rest of their lives to work. Let kids be kids.

Jennifer Lawrence New Trailer For ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1′

hunger games mockingjay part 1 trailerHere’s a NEW trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1‘! We see all three of the stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and even Josh Hutchinson. In this trailer, Katniss learns Peeta is alive even as she takes up arms with the rebels. RELATED: Watch Katniss return to District 12.

Something tells me the ‘Mockingjay’ movies are going to deviate the most from the book compared to ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Catching Fire.’ It makes sense. The books are all told from Katniss’s perspective. The movies have allowed us to see more than just what Katniss sees for both of the earlier adaptations, and it looks like this will continue to be the case for ‘Mockingjay.’ So much happens in ‘Mockingjay’ that I suspect it necessitated considerable deviation. I bet we’re going to see Peeta in captivity in the Capitol, for example. Can Not WAIT. Check it out!

Matthew McConaughey covers GQ, talks God, rom-coms & the ‘Redskins’ name

MM1

Matthew McConaughey covers the November issue of GQ and it’s one of the most comprehensive interviews I’ve ever read. Full stop. MM gave a lot of decent-to-good interviews last year during his Oscar campaign, but now that he’s successfully rebooted his entire career and become an Oscar-winner, Matthew has thoughts. Deep thoughts. About everything from the name “Redskins” to his rom-com past to God to… everything. You can read the full interview here (prepare yourself for the McConauniverse). Some highlights:

His rom-com past, his early fame: “I’ve never had fears that I was stuck in one thing. I’m sure we’re going to talk about the years when I was in romantic comedies and I was seen as the guy who was on the beach, running around shirtless. I did that. Damn right that was me. I wasn’t scared like, “Oh God, I’m going to be stuck here.” But I was like, I understand at some point that that is in italics now. [The italics part of my life] has two parts. One was the myth that was branded and created. Second, yeah, it’s me. I did Fool’s Gold in Australia, had a summer in Malibu, and made a surfer film—basically, when you edit those all together, it was one continuous ninety-degree day on the beach without a shirt. But also, I worked hard to live in Malibu, California. I’m going to the beach! I’m gonna go surfing! No, I don’t want to wear a shirt. I want to get a tan and feel the sun on my bones. And it’s Tuesday. You’re recording it? Good for you…. I’m not going to apologize for enjoying what I do.”

He’s proud of those rom-coms: “Absolutely. These things aren’t easy. What’s hard is to make them look easy. Those kinds of movies are what they are. They get pooh-poohed by critics. They get pooh-poohed by actors themselves. And in a way I get it, but in other ways it’s completely unfair. There’s a buoyancy you need to make them work. I believe I gave them buoyancy. And some of the shoots were very difficult, with me trying to fight for the balls on the guy…Look, I’m happy if you think I “cruised through” those. I did my work.

Babies are his secret weapon: “Never is a man more of a man than when he is the father of a newborn. Whatever decisions you make in the first six months of becoming a father, double down on them. I mean, you’re meeting the Courier. You’re meeting the Shepherd, the Future Prince. You immediately have something you don’t have to think about. You know what’s important. Bam! And the clarity of that is like, “Whew.” I definitely got more selfish. And at the same time, I think I got more compassionate, which don’t always go together, you know?

Being a lifelong Redskins fan, on whether they should change the name: “Man, it’s twofold. What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness. We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, “No, gotta change it”? It seems like when the first levee breaks, everybody gets on board. I know a lot of Native Americans don’t have a problem with it, but they’re not going to say, “No, we really want the name.” That’s not how they’re going to use their pulpit. It’s like my feeling about gun control: “I get it. You have the right to have guns. But look, let’s forget that right. Let’s forget the pleasure you get safely on your range, because it’s in the wrong hands in other places.”

Whether it would hurt to see the Redskins logo gone: “It’s not going to hurt me. It’s just… I love the emblem. I dig it. It gives me a little fire and some oomph. But now that it’s in the court of public opinion, it’s going to change. I wish it wouldn’t, but it will.”

He goes to church every Sunday: “Yeah. In Texas. It’s non-denominational. It’s based in the faith that Jesus is the son of God, that he died for our sins, but many different denominations come in.

[From GQ]

There’s so much more in that interview. I didn’t want to just give you the motherlode of McConaughquotes, but he talks a lot about going back to church after his kids were born, why he and Camilla decided to marry, how he feels about Lance Armstrong, and whether he thinks vanity is a good thing (spoiler: he believes in vanity). It’s a really fascinating interview and a lot of it is Classic McConaughey because he’s talking about space and time and the waves, bro. As for his stuff about the Washington Redskins… actually, I don’t think there are many Native Americans who are really A-OK with the name. The name needs to be changed. Bro.

Shailene Woodley on taking it off for movies: ‘I’m only 22. My boobs are great’

Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley isn’t the new Jennifer Lawrence, at least not on this blog. Shailene’s off-camera shtick is limited to her earth-child persona and she’s not nearly as interesting as JLaw. That’s sad because she does show serious talent in her films.

I watched White Bird in a Blizzard last weekend. The film’s twist was a gut punch, and Shailene was fantastic. Her performance quality had little to do with how often she disrobed during the movie. She told Hollywood life that she’d never shy away from nudityIf that happened to be part of the story in a really beautiful, grounded, honest way.” This film is very honest, and Shailene loses her top a lot. Here’s what she had to say about her magnificent rack:

Shailene Woodley stars in White Bird in a Blizzard. Forget not understanding the title. The question is, where’s her first name come from?

“My mother saw ‘Shai’ on a license plate, loved it, and tried figuring how to adapt it. Shailo, Shailee, Shailey, Shailette. So it became Shailene.”

She started acting “at age 5. By accident. I grew up in a small suburban California town. I was good in school. I was a nerd. The opportunity came to do commercials, and my parents were supportive.”

About her oft-discussed sexy scene in the movie, it’s “crazy. And sort of wrong. But I felt great doing it. I was not fully robed. And our bodies had no makeup. Who needs makeup? I’m only 22. My boobs are great. They don’t need any help. My parents saw the film. I thought it might be awkward, but they both loved it.”

OK.

Shailene did not arrive for her screening in the usual tight, spangled, designerish, low-cut, crotch-showing loaner dress, borrowed jewelry and teased shellacked hair. It was simple black pants, coat, headband. She’s also an outspoken feminist.

“Women should be there for other women. It’s such cruelty and competition out there. Women must help other women. Not say those ugly things about the others just out of their insecurity. I don’t believe in that.”

Started acting at 5, has a one-off name, parents loved her naked scene, dressed plainly for her screening. Shailene Woodley’s different.

[From Page Six]

Sigh. She’s not wrong. Her rack does look good in this movie, and being 22 years old doesn’t hurt matters. It’s easy to roll my eyes at Shailene’s declaration, but at least she’s not humblebragging. She’s not saying other people think her rack is awesome. She just likes her own rack. There’s something admirable in that statement. Shailene is simply being “open and lovely” with us.

By the way, did you catch how Page Six is trying to erase Shailene’s anti-feminist stance? I wonder if that’s Shailene’s PR people at work.

P.S. Here’s Shailene’s co-star, Shiloh Fernandez. He cleans up pretty well, but this photo makes me want to dunk him in Lysol.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1: New Footage!

SPOILER ALERT: 

Peeta is alive.

In a new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Katniss is gearing up for a battle against the Capitol when she’s stopped in her brave tracks by a video that doesn’t just feature her quasi boyfriend… it features him sending an unexpected message.

Peeta is seen telling all rebels to “lay down their weapons” and when Katniss defends him as being forced to do so by President Snow, Gale responds harshly.

“Everyone has a choice, Katniss, and I’d rather die than say what he just said,” Liam Hemsworth says in the sneak peek.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is a mouthful.

It’s also third film in this beloved sci-fi series, which is based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novels.

The film will feature the return of many familiar faces, including Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Willow Shields, Woody Harrelson and late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

It will be released on November 21 and Lorde will sing the main single on the soundtrack.

Here’s an early look at various photos from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.

Julianne Moore as President Coin


This is our first look at Julianne Moore in Mockingjay. It’s safe to say we’re excited for the film.

Ryan Phillippe: ‘I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years; 5 of them are good’

Ryan Phillippe

Ryan Phillippe is promoting his directorial debut, Catch Hell. Ryan co-wrote the script with a friend (Joe Gossett) and stars in the main role. Ryan says he “kind of plays himself,” which is to say he plays an actor whose career has hit a lull. Not-Ryan is a character who gets chased by the paparazzi but can’t land a movie. I don’t know how close this is to the truth. Ryan hardly ever gets papped these days. He may simply be good at evading the cameras.

Ryan certainly feels like his acting career isn’t the greatest. He spoke with the LA Times about how he dislikes all of his films — except for five of them, which he does not name. Mystery! Cruel Intentions has to be one of the good ones. The movie was pure cheese but a guilty pleasure for many. I hope Ryan’s not dissing that movie, especially since he met the mother of his children during filming. I bet Ryan considers Flags of Our Fathers to be one of his good movies since Clint Eastwood directed it. He probably also liked Gosford Park; Crash was emotionally manipulative, but it won Best Picture, right? So he’s gonna be proud of that one. Maybe Lincoln Lawyer?

The turning point in Ryan’s career — 2011: “I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent [the heist flick, Setup]. It was just a situation I didn’t want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business.”

Where he is now: “It’s certainly not a lament of mine that I’ve fallen out of favor in Hollywood. I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years. And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you’re an actor for hire. So this is kind of the beginning of my wanting to take a little more control and be a little more involved.”

He’s tiring of acting: “Acting alone doesn’t sustain me the same way it used to. Which I think is completely OK if you’ve done something for 20 years. Trying something else becomes really appealing.”

His first time directing: “I love it bleeding together and being a question of how much is directly related to me or isn’t. I’m proud of this movie. I came in on time and under budget. I got it done, and it is what it is. It’s not giant. But I can’t wait to do the next one — especially since I won’t be required to be on-camera the whole time.”

[From LA Times]

I don’t know how to feel about this newfound trend of actors trashing their films. It bugs. Why must they appear so ungrateful for roles that struggling actors would love to play?

Ryan recently spoke about his co-parenting efforts with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon. They’ve led a relatively drama-free divorce. American citizen Reese has had far more drama on her own. Anyway, Ryan said he and Reese went on a family walk through Central Park and talked about how they shot Cruel Intentions there. Ava and Deacon “were tripping out on the fact that we were there shooting a movie before they were even a thought in our minds.” I doubt Reese and Ryan went into great detail about this movie, right? The kids will see it on their own someday. And they will be sooo embarrassed to see their parents get it on.
