Was Amber Heard ‘mortified’ at Johnny Depp’s drunk HFAs speech?

Johnny Depp

Way back in July, I covered a story from Radar that said Johnny Depp was trying to be an upstanding guy for his fiancée, Amber Heard. His friends were certain that Johnny wasn’t completely behaving himself. He was reportedly hiding drinking binges from Amber. The story didn’t stick because there wasn’t any proof, just “friends” expressing concern.

The tale makes a lot more sense after Johnny made sweet love to a microphone at the HFAs last Friday. He was completely drunk and possibly more. The dude swayed, slurred, cursed, and may have burped (or simply cursed again) onstage. He completely stole Shep Gordon’s moment, but Mike Myers defended Johnny’s “rock ‘n’ roll” speech. What a mess. This week’s issue of Star says Amber Heard was “mortified” when she got wind of Johnny’s onstage shenanigans:

Johnny Depp’s drunken behavior at a recent awards show made Captain Jack Sparrow look like Prince Charles. Audiences at the 18th Annual Hollywood Film Awards were stunned when Johnny stumbled onstage to present a documentary award for Mile Myers’ Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, nearly knocking over the mocrophone in the process. “That’s the weirdest microphone I’ve ever seen in my life,” he muttered. “I’m not very good at this type of thing.”

While reading lines shouldn’t be too difficult a task for an actor, Johnny had considerable trouble with his speech. “Watch, I’m going to read this thing,” he burbled to the audience, who tittered uncomfortably at his slurred speech peppered with curse words. “You have to watch the film! Yeah, there you go. What does that say? It’s one of those nights.” Johnny ended his boozy tirade with a string of several more expletives before eventually getting cut off by producers.

“Johnny was extremely intoxicated,” a witness tells Star. “there were times he had to have someone help him stand. He couldn’t say a complete sentence — he made no sense.” Just last yeare Johnny insisted that he had given up drinking after learning that he and alcohol got along “maybe too well” but refused to consider himself an alcoholic. “No, it’s more my medication,” he insisted. “My self-medication over the years to calm the circus.”

But the circus is definitely in town. Johnny’s stress is mounting as he works feverishly on a staggering six movies, plus he’s planning his wedding to fiancee Amber Heard, who according to the source was reportedly mortified at her groom’s behavior. “This reflects really badly on her, and she’s not happy about it.”

Now those in Johnny’s inner circle are wondering if it should be last call for his self-destructive behavior. “There’s a chatter in Johnny’s camp about rehab,” the insider divulges. “At this point, he’s driving everyone — including Amber — away.”

[From Star, print edition, December 2, 2014]

I lean towards believing this story. Johnny’s never been a bastion of sobriety, but he’s been keeping it together (in public) for a few years. Getting drunk and making a fool of oneself isn’t nearly as bad as how Johnny used to behave. Remember how he would throw cocaine tantrums and toss furniture out of hotel rooms when he was dating Kate Moss? Then he started seeing Vanessa Paradis and grew up. Now he’s regressing, and I can believe Amber would worry about it reflecting badly upon her. Not that it’s her fault — it isn’t. This is all on Johnny. He wasn’t “maintaining” last weekend. He was flat-out, sloppy drunk, and I think he needs to find help.

Jennifer Lawrence is like Joan of Arc or Jesus, says Donald Sutherland

Jennifer Lawrence

We’re nearing the home stretch for the Mockingjay: Part I press tour. Jennifer Lawrence may disappear after the week ends, and we may not see her for a long time. I don’t think she’s going to do awards season either. Perhaps Serena was part of a grand plan to avoid schmoozing at parties.

Jennifer’s done a few last-minute interviews. She sat down with Elizabeth Banks for a “ask the badass” video talk. They bantered back and forth, and Elizabeth said, “You’re a guys’ girl. You basically have a p-nis.” Liz asked JLaw to finish the “I am a badass because…” question. Jennifer responded, “I’ve started downloading whole albums instead of just songs from artists.” I hope she’s not referring to Coldplay. She is, isn’t she?

JLaw’s co-stars have a lot to say about her. In all fairness, journos are asking the questions, and they’re happily printing the responses. One co-star went completely overboard. Donald Sutherland compared Jennifer to Jesus Christ. Oh boy:

Jennifer Lawrence has an Oscar and two Golden Globes.

She’s not only part of the X-Men family, but Guinness World Records recently named the 24-year-old actress the highest-grossing action heroine of all time for her work as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games franchise.

And now we’re thinking the Church of Jennifer Lawrence may be next. Or perhaps she can star in a reboot of Oh, God!?

“When I worked with her, I realized the child was a genius,” Donald Sutherland, who plays President Snow in the Hunger Games movies, told me last night at the premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 (in theaters on Nov. 21). “She’s the right person at the right time in the sense of Joan of Arc or Jesus Christ, any genius, in that sense.

“She has the ability as an actor to tell the truth out of the material and that truth is immediately recognizable with everybody because it hits you in your heart, your solar plexus and your mind,” the legendary actor continued. “And she has the genius of person to be not affected by all of this. She’s just a real girl.”

Julianne Moore, who makes her franchise debut in Mockingjay as District 13′s President Coin, gushed about their leading lady, “She’s delightful. My first impression is she’s really incredibly witty. I love her as an actress.

“I think even more she’s a wonderful human being,” Moore continued. “She’s kind and generous and funny and great to be with.”

[From E! Online]

That’s a very sweet answer from Donald, but it’s also embarrassing. I can practically see JLaw roll her eyes from here. People already think she’s overrated, and now Donald is making the most ridiculous comparison ever. Jennifer doesn’t suffer from Kanye West delusions. Remember, she’s only an actress. She doesn’t think of herself as iconic or Jesus-y.

I wonder what Donald thinks of co-star Lenny Kravitz. Time for a picture.

Katherine Heigl responds to Shonda Rimes’ diss: ‘I am sorry that she feels that way’

Katherine Heigl Returns To Her NYC Hotel
Katherine Heigl’s political thriller series with Alfre Woodard, State of Affairs, premiered on NBC this Monday. I haven’t seen it yet but I plan to catch it on demand. The series is getting moderate reviews and moderate viewership. It was bested by Gotham for the top scripted series to air on Monday but still had a solid showing. We’ll have to see if it retains viewership over the season.

During Heigl’s press tour she’s had to answer countless questions about her former diva behavior along with the fact that she’s badmouthed two of her employers. Some of you agree with Heigl that it’s sexist to bring this up, but I think it’s more a matter of Heigl continually burning bridges to the point where even her former employers have called her out. Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes in fact said just last month that she had a great cast on Scandal because “There are no Heigls in this situation… I don’t put up with bullshi–t or nasty people. I don’t have time for it.” Well Heigl feels bad about that, but she doesn’t say it’s not true, just that she wants a chance to make it up to Rhimes.

Katherine Heigl regrets making a bad impression on show creator Shonda Rhimes. The State of Affairs actress admitted during an interview with Mario Lopez that it “sucks” that Rhimes associates her with “nasty people.”

“The last one with Shonda…it sucks,” Heigl said when asked about Rhimes’ recent Hollywood Reporter interview…

Heigl, who ticked off Rhimes after removing herself from Emmy consideration in 2008, added: “I am sorry that she feels that way and I wish her nothing but greatness and I have nothing negative to say about [her]. I’m a big fan of her work. I watch Scandal every week and so I’m sorry she’s left with such a crappy impression of me. I wish I could do something to change that. Maybe I will be able to someday.”

The 27 Dresses actress also admitted she’s aware she needs to do some damage control. “That took some stomaching,” she told Lopez about learning of her negative image. [I’ve realized] there’s nothing I can do about this except to sort of prove it wrong, you know? And the only way to prove it wrong is for people to have a work experience with me that doesn’t speak to that at all.”

[From US Magazine]

That was gracious, well said, and on point. As long as Heigl continues to focus on moving forward and not complaining about how she was wronged, she should be fine.

To change gears for a moment, if State of Affairs doesn’t do well for NBC, does that mean that the “film star heading a TV series” model is flawed? I loved Halle Berry in Extant, but I didn’t love the plot each episode and thought it lacked focus. More than in the movies, I think the quality of the show matters more than star power on the small screen. We need a watchable, well-scripted show with fleshed out characters if we’re going to tune in every week. Shonda Rhimes knows this and Heigl surely regrets pissing her off.

Charles Dance: Peter Dinklage ‘must be the envy of every dwarf actor’

wenn21936609 (1)

Charles Dance is just one of those English actors. He works constantly. He shows up in TV shows and movies all the time and you’ve probably seen him in a million different things before you ever learned his name. He’s always been a great character actor, and I think he’s probably worked non-stop since he got a bit older. It’s sort of insane – he’s 68 years old and his IMDB page is crazy-long. Most Americans first put a name to his face when he took on the role of Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones. And much like Sean Bean and Pedro Pascal, Charles Dance welcomes GoT discussions and he seems to have really enjoyed his part in such a huge, cultural-phenomenon show. Charles is also doing press for his supporting part in The Imitation Game, but he’s spent most of his time talking about GoT. That’s what happens when a GoT person does press in America! We’re GoT-obsessed! You can read Dance’s full Daily Beast interview here – it’s a really interesting piece and he’s funny and rather sassy. He talks a bit about TIG, but the most interesting parts are about GoT.

Why he plays villains: “When you look at this face, it’s quite patrician the way it’s put together, and I have a demeanor that’s rather austere. So, interesting villain characters have come along and any actor will tell you that a villainous character is much more fun to play than a good guy.”

A possible GoT movie: “There’s talk of eventually trying to do a feature film, but I don’t know which of the storylines. There’s so much to cram into a film.”

On Alan Turing’s pardon: “There is an irony in that. Pardoned for what? Cracking the Enigma Code? The government should be asking the relatives of Alan Turing to pardon them for treating him so appallingly! It’s medieval, and disgusting. There are a few mad people around today who think you can ‘cure’ people of their sexuality, too.”

The Leveson Inquiry, being hacked by the British tabloids: “I had a call from the police who said, ‘Did you know that your number came up?’ and it made sense, because certain things would appear in papers and I’d think, ‘How the f–k did they know that?’”

His role in the cult favorite Aliens 3: “I think Alien 3 was a better film than Aliens, to be frank.”

The craziest thing he did for GoT was skin a real deer: “So, this butcher arrived with a dead animal and they gave me a little room to work in, gave me a sharp knife, and showed me how to skin it and spill the guts into a bucket. The next day, they gave me another dead animal, and we shot it. It was a bloody good time, but it took me two days to get the smell off my hands.”

Working with Peter Dinklage: “One of the biggest joys was working with Peter Dinklage. He’s the sweetest man, and a phenomenal actor. He must be the envy of every dwarf actor in the world because those parts don’t come along too often. He’s also extremely handsome. If you look at his head, it’s like Michelangelo’s David. And he’s such a great guy, too. I spent a lot of time apologizing to Peter because we play scenes where I treat him like sh-t, calling him a ‘lecherous little stump’ and saying I wanted to ‘carry you out to sea and let the waves take you away.’”

[From The Daily Beast]

I’ve read interviews with Dance before where he’s praised the hell out of Dinklage too, so I think that’s for real – Dance has a lot of love for Dinklage. But I do worry about Dance saying “He must be the envy of every dwarf actor…” Dinklage has said in the past that he doesn’t like the D-word and that many in the community think “dwarf” is a pejorative. I don’t know… is it rude to call Dinklage a “dwarf”?

Dance also went flawlessly into character, analyzing Tywin’s feelings for his children and how much Tywin must have secretly adored Tyrion all along. You can tell Dance really loved playing that character. It’s kind of cool.

Celeb Blind Item Who Wasn’t Ready For Her Big Comeback?

Blind-Folded-Man17This blind item is just sad. Really sad. The pressures of fame aren’t for the weak! Get the deets after the break.

March 10, 2009

This actress is C list now. Back in the day she was probably a B lister with some very famous boyfriends who were A listers when they dated. Our actress was also around for one of the most famous moments in Hollywood history. You might think she is old from the description I’ve given, but she’s not. She just has been acting a long time and it is taking a toll. How big of a toll? Well our actress has multiple movies coming out in which she is actually the female lead in two of them. The movies need press, but she can’t do it. She is on so many different kinds of pills right now that she doesn’t know if she is coming or going and barely can utter a coherent sentence that is not memorized in advance. The producers of the first movie she has scheduled to come out and have already given up trying to get her to promote it and instead have come up with gimmicks. The producers of the second movie want to get her into rehab, but she just wants to be left alone to live her life as she pleases. These movies represented her comeback, but it doesn’t look like it will last for long at this rate.

Any guesses? Take a look at the reveal by clicking on “Crazy Days and Nights” below.

Matthew McConaughey Will He Have A ‘Magic Mike XXL’ Cameo?

"Interstellar" - Los Angeles PremiereI’m sure we all felt a little deflated to hear that Matthew McConaughey would not be returning to the ‘Magic Mike’ sequel, ‘Magic Mike XXL.’ It’s understandable: he’s been doing A LOT of movies in the last couple of years, so his schedule may have been a bit too full to reprise his hot (albeit creepy) role for ‘Magic Mike XXL.’ However, it turns out he may have made some time to fit a quick trip to Savannah, GA, where the film is shooting, for a cameo. RELATED: Matthew McCongaughey definitely is not returning to ‘Magic Mike XXL.’

A source told Page Six that Matthew would, indeed, make a brief appearance in ‘Magic Mike XXL.’ If it’s a cameo then I’m guessing we won’t be seeing a dance scene, but hey, we’ll take what we can get, right? The studio didn’t confirm this source’s claim, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next summer when the movie comes out.

Channing Tatum talked about the strict diet he had to follow to get into stripper shape for the movie; I’m guessing Matthew is over all that stuff. I can’t blame him- LOL.

Amy Adams covers Vogue: will she finally win an Oscar this year for ‘Big Eyes’?

AA vogue

Amy Adams finally scored her first-ever cover of Vogue, for the December issue. She’s supporting Big Eyes, yet another performance which could have her on the Oscar shortlist. She’s the new Kate Winslet in that way – Amy’s always nominated, but she’s never won the big prize. The Academy loves her though, that’s why they keep nominating her. You can see Amy’s Annie Leibovitz photoshoot here – Amy and her Big Eyes director Tim Burton posed together and recreated The Red Shoes. You can read the full profile of Amy here – I always say this, but Amy is a boring interview. She’s lovely and an extremely talented actress, but she’s a snooze as a “celebrity.” That’s a good thing in life but a bad thing for gossip. Some highlights from her Vogue profile:

Seeing golden retriever named Murphy: “That’s, like, my dog, my spirit animal. When I was younger, I was just so hyper and friendly to everybody. And still now, when I come on set, I’m like a golden retriever at a dog park, because I’m just so happy to be around people and eager to please.”

Her early days in Hollywood: “I was able to do everything from day player to guest star to small parts in movies and it really, to this day, gives me perspective, but going through it was painful, to say the least. I felt a lot of pressure, but I just wasn’t able to get there in the audition room. Or even in meetings. My squirreliness would come out, and people wouldn’t feel confident. I’ve always been someone who had, like, a spirit of perseverance, but I actually almost quit because I was starting not to like who I was. My lawyer called me after I was fired from the two shows and said, ‘Just to even get two shows in a pilot season is amazing. So you’re doing something right.’ I thank him all the time for that call.”

Why she works with such powerhouse directors: “I prefer to work with really confident directors. If they need me to take care of them or make them feel better, it’s probably not going to go well.”

Working in the suburbs of Detroit: “I always have to remind myself: This is how I was raised. Every house in my town looked just like that one, right there. There’s something kind of comforting about it. You feel like you could just go inside, sit down in the kitchen, and have a cup of coffee. With some creamer. Not half-and-half, but Coffee-mate.”

Her daughter Aviana: “I miss her so much. Ten days is the longest trip I think that I’ve ever had away from her. Before I left I told her, ‘Lots of people are going to see you, and Daddy’s going to take care of you.’ We have a huge community of friends. But she said, ‘Momma, who’s going to take care of you?’ I said, ‘I’m a grown-up. I take care of myself.’ And she said, ‘No, but you need someone to come and spend time with you.’ Because now she has an understanding of loneliness. It’s very sweet. She says, ‘When I grow up, I am going to be your momma.’ ” She starts laughing. “She’ll probably have to be. I’m such a wreck. I’m glad you think it’s cute now. You’re not going to think it’s cute when you’re 25 and I’m living with you.”

Turning 40 years old: “I was like, ‘I’m 40 and I still care what people think of me; I still don’t do laundry so I’m always out of things; I’m just not a grown-up at all,’ and I had this expectation that I would be by this age. It wasn’t, ‘Oh, I’m getting old and I’m going to lose something vibrant about myself.’ It was more that I was just”—she switches into a trembling Katharine Hepburn—“ ‘so disappointed with myself.’ It’s just awful. Any chance for self-loathing!”

[From Vogue]

See? Perfectly pleasant. She’s a good person, a loving mom and a supportive partner. There’s no scandal. She’s neurotic, but no more than any other working mom and talented professional. The most interesting thing, to me, is that like ALL of her directors wanted to go on the record about how amazing she is and how much they love her. And I didn’t realize she had just turned 40 this year – she’s a vampire! No, she’ll still be working like crazy twenty years from now. She’s utterly beloved. But will Big Eyes be the film that finally gets her an Oscar?

Taylor Swift "Blank Space" Video Gets Turned Into a Horror Movie: Watch the Trailer!

In her new single, Taylor Swift talks about “torture.” And a relationship that “goes down in flames.” She also mentions the fact that she’s “insane.”

So, wait, is “Blank Space” the name of Swift’s latest track? Or the title of a horror movie? Why can’t it be both?!?

The geniuses at Slate have transformed Swift’s version of Gone Girl’s Amy Dunne into a horror movie trailer… by just adding some sound effects to actual footage from the video.

Confused? Click play and you’ll simply be entertained.

The world in general has been having a lot of fun with Swift’s “Blank Space.” Including Swift herself!

Did you catch Taylor lip-syncing to the song while riding in a car with a beloved British DJ?

This young superstar has been absolutely everywhere since releasing her wildly popular new album last month, including the latest issue of Wonderland and even the cover of the latest issue of Time.

Unlike Kim Kardashian, however, Swift has kept her clothes on for these magazine spreads. 

And why wouldn’t she? Taylor Swift has actual talent to offer the world, not just large breasts and an Internet-shattering rear end.

In this case, that talent can best be described as How to Act Like a Total and Complete Nutcase. See what we mean in the following 19 GIFs from the “Blank Space” video:

Taylor Goes Elin Nordegren


This is what happens when Taylor Swift catches a man cheating, at least in her music video for “Blank Space.” She goes all Elin Nordegren on his car!

Benedict Cumberbatch will receive the ‘Variety Award’ at the Moet British Awards

FFN_KM_TheImitationGame_111014_51581454

It’s difficult to remember after the events of the past week and a half, but Benedict Cumberbatch was actually on track to have a pretty flawless year, career-wise. He surprised a lot of people when he won Best Actor in a Drama at the Emmys for Sherlock, and his role in The Imitation Game has been garnering awards pretty much everywhere the film goes. The Year of Cumberbatch! Except Benedict may have messed with his awards season mojo by getting engaged to Sophie Hunter. Or not…

Benedict Cumberbatch is to receive the Variety Award at the Moet British Independent Film Awards on Dec. 7 at Old Billingsgate, London. The award recognizes a director, actor, writer or producer who has helped to put the international spotlight on the U.K. Paul Greengrass was given the award last year. Previous recipients include Jude Law, Kenneth Branagh, Liam Neeson, Daniel Craig and Helen Mirren.

Cumberbatch’s latest film, “The Imitation Game,” has been nominated in four categories at the British Independent Film Awards: British independent film; screenplay for Graham Moore; actress for Keira Knightley; and actor for Cumberbatch.

Cumberbatch commented: “I am delighted to receive this prestigious award, and would like to thank Variety and the Moet British Independent Film Awards for this incredible honor. It is made even more special by the recognition of ‘The Imitation Game’ in this year’s nominations, a film I am very proud to be a part of.”

[From Variety]

Yay, he’ll have to attend another awards ceremony! And it’s in London too, which might mean that he’ll finally bring out Sophie Hunter and they’ll walk their first red carpet together. Holding hands. Maybe even kissing for the cameras. LOL, the meltdown would be epic if that happened. I do think it’s probably more likely that Sophie and Bendy would make their red carpet debut on “home turf” in England. Maybe for these awards (the Moet British Independent Film Awards) or for the BAFTAs or something.

Meanwhile, genealogy researchers claim that Benedict is actually distantly related to Alan Turing, the man he portrays in The Imitation Game. Who knew that Turing banged an otter at some point?! No, they’re like… 17th cousins. Basically, Benedict probably has a closer relation to an actual otter. Cumberbatch’s genealogy is sort of interesting though – we’ve previously discovered that his family was involved with Barbados slave trade in the 18th century.
