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.

Kristen Stewart: ‘It’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist’

FFN_GG_CampXRayMeet_100714_51551895

Kristen Stewart got pap’d so much in NYC last week, I didn’t even get the chance to use all of the new photos of her. So here’s a hodge-podge of K-Stew pics from the last week. Enjoy! Kristen managed to avoid being pap’d with Nicholas Hoult, even though he came out to her NYFF premiere and after-party – they were reportedly pretty tight at the party, so take that however you want. Kristen also sat down with The Daily Beast for a lengthy interview about Camp X-Ray last week (it was published on Saturday). You can read the full piece here. Most of the conversation is about Gitmo and the politics of Gitmo and terrorism. Kristen also talks about the people who think she cannot act, plus her thoughts on feminism. Some highlights:

Taking two years off, then working with a first-time director on Camp X-Ray: “I’m never really that precious about choosing projects that don’t have every sure element that is a guaranteed good experience and/or success. There’s a lot of risk involved in this job, and it doesn’t bother me… I’ve had experiences that have made me go, ‘Ugh, I have to be careful and make sure that every part is sturdy and that I won’t be let down.’ If I was a director, I would be extremely conscious of my filmography. It says so much about the difference between putting your name on something and owning it instead of being one tiny part of it. Actors get to work all the time. If I make a bad movie every once in a while, I don’t care. I didn’t work after Snow White for about two years, but it’s because a lot of these projects didn’t come together. I’m decisive, but I’m definitely not a planner.”

The criticism that she can’t act: “Honestly, I don’t care. It’s fine. I’m really happy doing what I’m doing. I’m sure there are a ton of people out there who would hate my movies even if they saw all those, just as I’m sure there are people out there who are obsessed with Twilight and say, ‘I watched the series, and she completely let me down, and then I watched every one of her other movies, and I f–kin’ hate her!’ And that’s cool! Just don’t watch my movies.”

Whether she’s politically active: “I don’t want to talk about that s–t at all. Trust me, I’m only asking for it. When it comes time to stand up and affect change, I’m not the type of person to shout from the rooftops. Just because you’re an actor and in the public eye, people think that’s how you must be. But there are other ways to do that. That’s not me.

She’s confused why some young women don’t identify with feminism: “That’s such a strange thing to say, isn’t it? Like, what do you mean? Do you not believe in equality for men and women? I think it’s a response to overly-aggressive types. There are a lot of women who feel persecuted and go on about it, and I sometimes am like, ‘Honestly, just relax, because now you’re going in the other direction.’ Sometimes, the loudest voice in the room isn’t necessarily the one you should listen to. By our nature alone, think about what you’re saying and say it—but don’t scream in people’s faces, because then you’re discrediting us. Relating it to my one little avenue, people say, “If you want to make it in the film industry as a woman, you have to be a bitch.” No, you are going to ruin any chance you have and give us a bad name. It’s the overcompensation to where our generation goes, “Relax,” because it’s been easier for us, and because we don’t have as much of the anger, so it’s like we can’t get behind it and it’s a bit embarrassing. But that being said, it’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist.

[From The Daily Beast]

Kristen’s answer on the feminism question is classic Kristen – for most of the answer, I thought she was going off in one direction (the “women need to stop complaining about inequality” direction) and then she does an about-face at the very end with the “of course you should identify with feminism” direction. Can you talk sincerely about feminism if you had a high-profile affair with your married director? I’m honestly asking.

There’s also a somewhat interesting discussion about Catherine Hardwicke, the director of the first Twilight movie, and how Hardwicke was basically chased out of Hollywood after the failure of Red Riding Hood. Kristen doesn’t defend her former director and champion specifically at all, but she does say that what happened to Hardwicke was “f—ked up” and that women need to “persevere” in the industry to make it.

Prince Harry looks great in London, promotes Invictus Games: would you hit it?

FFN_Prince_Harry_FFUK_exc_073014_51490321

I don’t care if this sounds inappropriate, but holy hell, Prince Harry looks so bangable these days. This might be the best he’s looked in years. He’s thinned out, he doesn’t look like he goes out drinking every night, his hair is a good length and he can wear the hell out of some jeans. These are some new pics of Harry outside of BBC Radio 2 in London today, where he was doing some advanced promotion for the Invictus Games. He posed with a cute little girl too. Harry + children = always great.

The Invictus Games start right around Harry’s 30th birthday in September. Vanity Fair says that Harry isn’t going to have a big blowout for his b-day this year – William and Kate are going to throw him a small dinner party in Kensington Palace (??) and then Guy Pelly is throwing a party for him at one of Guy’s nightclubs, but Harry will leave the party by 10:30.

In other Harry news, over the weekend he attended a “secret garden party” in Cambridgeshire which was like an undercover music festival, I guess? In any case, Harry went shirtless – you can see the photo here. It’s not quite like the Las Vegas “nude scandal” but it’s still decent. This is probably one of the reasons why Harry recently proclaimed his hatred for Twitter. Last week, he was doing a social media event to promote the Invictus Games and he said:

“I really hate Twitter. I would love to get involved and go on social media, and if it was for causes like this I really would. The issue for myself and my family, put quite simply, is that it’s very hard for me to tweet about the Invictus Games and tweet about something that means a lot to me, whereas I, at the same time, really quite hate Twitter by the invasion of privacy. I think you all understand what I’m talking about. I would love to tweet about things I care about but it’s a fine line between what you should do and what you can do, and what other people want to know and what you don’t want them to know.”

[From Vanity Fair]

The answer is not “staying off Twitter” though – if you’re a celebrity or royal and you’d like to use social media to promote your work and raise awareness for the causes you feel passionately about, you should go on social media and simply ignore the haters.

And here’s Harry’s photobomb from earlier this week:

Tom Hiddleston cast as country legend Hank Williams in bio-pic ‘I Saw the Light’

wenn20784319

Shhh! I can feel the Dragonflies freaking out. It will be fine. Deep breaths. Count to ten slowly. A Tom Hiddleston post is happening. This is what everyone was waiting for, right? That’s why CRAZY was spilling into every Benedict Cumberbatch post for the past two weeks? So, take a deep breath and let’s do this. First of all, Tommy Hiddles got a job! And he’s going to play an American. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Tommy has signed on to the lead role in I Saw the Light, the Hank Williams bio-pic. Tommy will be singing. And wearing cowboy hats. And talking in a Southern drawl. Oh… Tommy.

The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston will play Country & Western legend Hank Williams in I Saw The Light, a film that Marc Abraham will direct and which has come together as a co-production between RatPac Entertainment, Bron Studios, and Creative Wealth Media Finance, all of which will fund the film. Abraham wrote the script based on the Colin Escott biography of Williams and Aaron L. Gilbert will produce with Brett Ratner, G. Marq Rosell and Abraham. Ratner’s partner, James Packer, will be exec producer.

Production will begin in Louisiana in October, and Hiddleston will sing such Williams standards as “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “Hey Good Lookin’,” after the film’s backers made a deal with Sony ATV to secure rights to the Williams music catalog. The film will tell the story of Williams’ meteoric rise to fame, and the price that fame took on his personal life. He died at age 29 of heart failure.

[From Deadline]

Considering they got the rights to Williams’ back catalog, I think this will probably be a reasonably prestigious project. At the very least, it will introduce a whole new generation of fans to Hank Williams’ music. Will Tom actually sing? Probably. They’ll probably do something fancy and use both the original Hank Williams recordings AND Tommy’s voice. Because while Tommy is always up to sing and dance, as we’ve seen time and time again, Tommy really doesn’t have the best singing voice. But he’s enthusiastic. And maybe they’ll give him a vocal/singing coach. Tommy also tweeted this:

As for the other stuff… well, I’m not going to stop you Dragonflies from talking about it. I think many people got way too extra about one random foreign article that identified Jane Arthy as Tom Hiddleston’s “wife.” If he did marry her… well, God bless, and I look forward to the Dargonfly Apocalypse and our soon-to-be Dragonfly Overlord. Let him have a personal life, I’m just saying. You can be a fan and want good things for him without needing to know every single thing about his romantic life. She’s probably just his girlfriend (not his wife) anyway.

Chelsea Clinton, 34, is pregnant with her first baby (and first Clinton grandchild)

wenn21055184

Aw, this is such nice news! Chelsea Clinton is expecting her first child! Considering Chelsea is the only child of Bill and Hillary Clinton, this will be their first grandchild. Chelsea has been pretty open about how much her parents have been pressuring her to get pregnant too, so I would imagine Bubba and Hills are beyond thrilled. Chelsea married Marc Mezinsky in 2010, and although there were rumors about some marriage problems a few years ago, I haven’t heard anything bad about them in a while.

Welp, she called it! Chelsea Clinton is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Marc Mezvinsky. The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the news during the Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation event in NYC on Thursday, April. 17.

“One more thing to say very quickly,” the 34-year-old addressed the crowd. “Mark and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year. I certainly feel all the better whether it’s a girl or a boy that they’ll grow up in a world with so many strong female leaders…”

“I just hope that I’ll be as good to my child as my mom was to me,” she added. As mom Hillary replied: “I’m expecting a grand child which I’m very excited about. We’re very excited about what’s happening in our family but we’re also very excited about what we’re doing.”

The former first daughter has clearly had babies on the brain, as she previously revealed she planned to try for baby No. 1 this year last October. “We sat down and said, ‘Here’s what we want to do.’ The first thing on the list was simple: We want, God willing, to start a family,” she said in Glamour’s November 2013 issue. “So we decided we were going to make 2014 the Year of the Baby.”

No one, of course, was more ecstatic about a possible pregnancy than the future grandparents. “And please,” Chelsea added, “call my mother and tell her that. She asks us about it every single day.”

Clinton and investment banker Mezvinsky tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Rhinebeck, N.Y., back in July 2010. The happy baby news comes just one day after Clinton, who serves as the Vice Chair of The Clinton Foundation, hinted that she’s open to running for political office one day.

[From Us Weekly]

I’ve read some stuff about Chelsea and I’ve even read a few of her interviews over the past few years, and I have to say… I do like her. I’m not sure she should run for office right at this moment, but she’s a pretty cool woman and an interesting blend of her parents. People say that Chelsea is flirtatious and good with people like her dad, and that she’s a focused workhorse Type-A like her mom. Anyway, I’m sure this baby will be doted upon on an epic level. Someone check on Bubba, I’m sure he’s crying.

Kate Upton: ‘I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life’

Kate Upton

Kate Upton is famous for her figure, particularly her rack. Men love her enormous assets, and women (many of them, anyway) love that Kate is bringing a slightly fuller figure to fashion magazines. Kate hasn’t ever said much about her own rack — until now, what really needed to be said? Now she’s complaining a little about the assets that made her famous. Kate reveals that she’s always wanted smaller ones. Every day of her life, she’s wanted to wear spaghetti straps without busting out. She drops the “grass is always greener” cliché, but it’s true! Most women that I’ve talked to would prefer to have the opposite of their given chest size. Kate appreciates what her rack has done for her career, but she’d still like to take them off after work. If only that was possible:

They’re two of the biggest stars in fashion, double-billing on the covers of Sports Illustrated, Vogue and Vanity Fair and lusted over by countless admirers – still, Kate Upton can’t stand them.

“I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs,” the supermodel and actress tells Britain’s The Sun on Sunday.

“Every single day, I’m like, ‘Oh, man, it would be so much easier,’ especially if people didn’t constantly bring them up,” she confesses of her two biggest assets.

At least twice a day she wishes she were smaller up top, Upton, 21, admits. “But the grass is always greener, as they say!”

If only they were a little more like . . . earrings, the covergirl muses of her natural-born 34-D’s.

“If I could just take them off like they were clip-ons.”

Upton is making her “serious” acting debut with the upcoming The Other Woman, and she cites Cameron Diaz as possessing the ideal physique.

“In my eyes, Cameron Diaz has the perfect figure,” she gushed.

In the film, which opens April 25, Upton, Diaz and Leslie Mann play three women who bond over a plot to take revenge on one man who cheated on them all.

And while Mann, 42, plays a grounded, devoted housewife and Diaz, 41, plays a tough Manhattan lawyer, Upton plays a flirty, ditzy blonde.

It’s not typecasting, insists Upton, who has already won rave reviews for her intelligence and acting chops from her much older co-stars.

“I think it’s funny to act like a dumb blonde. I know that’s not the case so why not play on it?” she tells The Sun.

“But I actually don’t look at my character as dumb,” Upton adds. “I think of her as young and naive, like I was once.”

[From Page Six]

Like it or not, Kate’s livelihood is directly tied to her chest size. She’s made her name upon her glorious rack, so it must be bittersweet for her to wage a daily mental battle with their existence. Maybe she can save up enough money for retirement over the years and then get a reduction? If that’s what she wants. She could change her mind before then.

Kate’s attitude about her girls is not unusual. Since we’re on the subject, I have an odd, chest-related predicament of my own. My rack is the first place that I lose or gain weight. They’ve been a 38D, a 36B, and everywhere in between. They fluctuate in size depending on hormones, stress, or where I’m at in a training cycle. It sucks to have to keep a variety of bras and tops on hand depending on what these damn things want to do. Please tell me about your own size-related boob problems and make me feel better.

Emma Watson won’t ‘date people who are famous,’ complains about dating civilians

emma1

Emma Watson covers the April (??) issue of Elle Australia. So far, we’ve only got the cover. Which is pretty. I’d like to see the full shoot, but I guess I’ll have to wait. This Elle interview is the same one where Emma was talking about looking forward to aging. More quotes have been released and Emma sounds… well, the yoga thing is somewhat interesting. Some highlights:

Emma on her dating rules: “I don’t date people who are famous,” she said, before adding that she also hates the downsides to dating non-famous people. “I don’t think it’s fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me. I wish I could protect them.”

She’s a board two certified qualified yoga instructor: “People are like, ‘Where are you living? What are you doing?’ I don’t know. I’m too young to decide right now if I want to live here or in New York or in LA or wherever else. And I really struggled for the answers the past three years. I should really know! I should really commit!” So that’s when she became a yoga instructor. “I was like, ‘I need to find a way to always feel safe and at home within myself.’ Because I can never rely on a physical place.”

Getting rid of her good girl image by breaking into a pool: “It was at a hotel, it had a gate around it. My friends turned around and basically I was gone. The next thing they saw was me 7ft up in the air, scaling the fence. I shouldn’t be able to get away with what I’m getting away with.”

[From Elle Australia via The Mail]

The dating thing is confusing. I wonder why she’s so adamant about only dating “civilians”? The mean part of my brain went to “I bet none of the really awesome famous people ask her out,” but in real life, I bet a wide variety of famous and non-famous men hit on her. So, she’s committed to dating civilians, and then she complains about how the press tries to find out stuff about them?

As for the yoga instructor thing… it sounds a little bit vapid to me, but hey, at least it’s something to fall back on. When all else fails, she could teach yoga.

Viggo Mortensen, 55, wears jeans at the Berlin Film Festival: would you hit it?

wenn21075767

Yay, we so rarely have new photos of Viggo Mortensen. It’s always an event when he shows up somewhere! These are photos of Viggo at the photocall for The Two Faces of January, his new film starring Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac. Neither Kirsten nor Oscar were in Berlin for this though, which is weird because this doesn’t look like a film either should be ashamed of. Oscar Isaac is everywhere these days, just on the verge of becoming a big star, and Kirsten is slowly coming back to Hollywood relevance. That being said, I just watched the trailer and I’ve already figured out the weak link:

Viggo clean-shaven and in period clothes? YES. Oscar Isaac turning in another solid performance? Sure. Kiki as Viggo’s wife-on-the-run? Eh. I guess I don’t really buy Kiki as Viggo’s wife in any possible film though.

As for these photos of Viggo… mm… he’s looking good. As he’s aging, he’s reminding me a bit of Sam Shepard. Right? They both seem like cowboys, more comfortable on a ranch than at a film festival photocall.

PS… Do you realize that Viggo is 5 years older than Johnny Depp? And Viggo manages to still look rather bohemian without all the scarves and rings.

Were George Clooney & Eva Longoria fooling around this whole time?

Two days ago, LaineyGossip had a really good blind item. At the time, I felt very strongly that it was about Eva Longoria and George Clooney, but as always, I second-guessed myself because I’m not very good at blind items usually. I thought maybe Eva and Clooney were too obvious. But no, at this point, I’m sure that they were the blind item, because Us Weekly is pretty much confirming that in the last months of George’s relationship with Stacy Keibler, he might have been boning Eva on the side.

Who could say no to George Clooney? Eva Longoria, apparently. A source close to the Oscar-winning actor, 52, tells Us Weekly exclusively that he unsuccessfully tried to woo the Desperate Housewives star, 38, while he was still dating Stacy Keibler. Friendly for years, Clooney and Longoria hung out at Soho House in Berlin — both were in Germany for work — this past March, “but did not hook up,” according to the insider.

After that, “George began pursuing Eva,” the source continues. “He told her that he was still with Stacy, but had plans to break up with her and was interested in being with Eva.”

While once-divorced Longoria resisted, the Descendants star “continued to pursue her with texts and calls. Eva made it clear to him that she would not date or be with him until he was completely single.”

As Clooney and Keibler’s romantic status appeared unchanged, Longoria found love with someone else: Ernesto Arguello, who starred in NBC’s cancelled dating reality show Ready for Love, which Longoria produced. “She is now very happy with him,” the source adds. “George and Eva never hooked up.”

Clooney and Keibler, meanwhile, finally, officially ended their two-year relationship earlier this month. (The Oscar winner and the Supermarket Superstar host, 33 “hadn’t had sex in months,” another source explained.)

Adds a third insider of the former WWE star: “Stacy has always been independent and has been focusing on her work. She got fed up with the distance between them and broke it off.”

A rep for Clooney tells Us he does not comment on his client’s personal life.

[From Us Weekly]

Yeah, does anyone buy that Eva would get on her high horse and declare that George wouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the Longoria Vagine until he was officially done with Stacy? I don’t know if I believe that. Now, I’m not saying that Eva is just like all of the other Clooney Girls and she just fell into bed with him after he promised her a good hair stylist. She probably did play hard to get a little bit, more than he’s used to. But let’s be real here… Eva totally put out.

So what does this mean? It means that George likes to do a blonde and then a brunette. And then a blonde. And then a brunette. I’ve always thought his “type” is usually darker, exotic. He likes olive skin or a deep tan on a woman. He likes long dark hair. But usually he doesn’t go for women who have their own celebrity profiles. I don’t really consider Eva A-list in Hollywood but she’s certainly a solid B-list celebrity with her own celebrity brand and a solid career. She doesn’t need Clooney to make her into a household name. So what will happen now?

PS… remember how I always said that Stacy Keibler looked so much like Sarah Larsen? Well, that was true. And now I think Eva looks SO MUCH like Elisabetta Canalis. Damn, he has a type.

Jessica Simpson gave Eric Johnson a $42,000 push present after she gave birth

I’ve spent a lot of time hatin’ on Jessica Simpson’s fiancé Eric Johnson. To be fair, Eric really doesn’t DO that much. He plays golf. He takes Jessica out to eat. He keeps getting her pregnant. He tries to breathe through his mouth when she drops one of her nuclear farts. Rinse and repeat. But I have come around on Eric slightly. Jessica seems very happy with him, he seems like a hands-on father and he does seem to genuinely love Jessica (and her bank account). Perhaps it’s possible that Jessica and Eric are perfect complements to each other? Perhaps. I think it helps that Jessica looks at Eric and she genuinely thinks, “Wow, I scored such an amazing guy!” Which might explain why SHE gave HIM a push present after SHE gave birth to their son Ace Knute:

Jessica Simpson may have done all the work while giving birth to son Ace Knute on June 30, but it was her baby daddy Eric Johnson who got the push present! While Eric gave Jessica flowers after welcoming their second child, Jessica decided to splurge on her fiancé with an 18K gold Panerai watch and a custom-made leather biker jacket by John Varvatos. Since Jessica is pals with designer John, she got the jacket for cost, but insiders say she ended up dropping $42,000 on the watch – which she had engraved with the special message “Today, tomorrow, forever yours.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Only Jessica would go all-out on a push present for her baby-daddy when he only got her flowers! I mean, I know many of you hate the idea of “push presents” or maybe you just hate the term “push presents”. But it comes from a culturally historical place – it’s been very common for centuries for the new father to give his wife (or as they said in the olden days, “baby-mama”) something significant to mark the occasion of the birth of a child. There’s no real need to give the father something special… you just gave him a baby, you know? You pushed that sucker out after carrying the kid for nine months. You deserve a piece of jewelry. HE does not.
