Chris Noth: Carrie Bradshaw was a ‘wh-re’ & Mr. Big was an emotional wreck

wenn21412773

Chris Noth was in Australia this week as “ambassador for Chivas Regal Extra Scotch.” Chivas flew him to Australia to promote their drink, basically. Which is a pretty nice gig. I like Chris Noth a lot, and I have ever since Law & Order, then Sex & the City, and now The Good Wife. He’s a better actor than people think and I like that he’s built a solid career for himself in TV. He’s never really been a “movie star,” yet he feels bigger than a TV actor. Anyway, while in Australia, Chris sat down for a surprisingly in-depth interview. He ended up talking a lot about SATC and how much the movies sucked (whoa!) and he jokingly (?) called Carrie Bradshaw a wh-re.

Analyzing Mr. Big: “It’s funny, because even with The Good Wife people accuse me of always playing powerful men. But they’re flawed — Big was powerful because he had a lot of money and he seemed to have the upper hand in the relationship, but emotionally he was a wreck. Actually, no: he was what he was. One of the things I tell people is that he never tried to pretend he was anything other than what he was. It was [Carrie] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn’t. He was always honest about himself — he never cheated on her. The relationship just didn’t work, and he went on to get married while she went on to … how many boyfriends did she have? She was such a whore! [laughs] There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman.

Whether all of the good work is in TV: “Not necessarily — there’s a lot of crap on TV. But nowadays you have these tent pole movies — Sex and the City 1 and 2, although 2 didn’t really work out I guess — these movies about superheroes and Transformers and all that s**t, where they throw massive amounts of money at them. Where’s the actual movie in all that? I think a lot of people over 40, particularly women, wonder what movies are going to give them. That’s why you see older actors and actresses like Glenn Close coming across to TV.”

What went wrong in SATC 2: “I don’t think it was a bomb, but I think because they’re greedy, it didn’t make as much money as they wanted. But I think it was considered an indulgence and a distraction because it hit right when the recession happened. People were like, ‘Who gives a f*ck about these broads going to Dubai when we can’t pay our mortgage?’ It was originally intended as a romp between these friends, but I think it was a mistake to leave New York City, because New York is an integral part of that show. Without that, it just went on too long. The critical response was overwhelmingly negative … there was not one good review of that film. Not one. And I think it was very hurtful for the girls, because [the reviews] got personal. The media can be dogs. Just f*cking ravenous dogs. And they just tore it apart — unjustly, because there are a lot of other romantic comedies that are dumb and stupid, and they give them a pass. It’s like they were gunning for us. [The film] was flawed, yeah, but it wasn’t as bad as they made it out to be.

[From News.com.au]

Wow, I actually have nothing but respect for what Noth says here. I mean, except for the “wh-re” joke, which was a bit rude. But all of the rest of it – cosign. The second film was stupid and it deserved the bad reviews, but critics really did go after it to a frothing-at-the-mouth level. And I like what he says about Mr. Big too – Mr. Big was a douchebag, especially in the early years, but Carrie was so ridiculous in that relationship. Noth also says that he doesn’t know if they’ll do another movie and he makes it sound like he would be up for it if they did want to do a third.

Blake Lively tried to stop Gawker from making fun of her pro-Antebellum editorial

FFN_CFDA_Awards_NYC_060214_51437961

I wasn’t going to write about this at first, but then it snowballed into a media story and now I sort of have to cover it, which sucks for Blake Lively. In between posting photos of her baby bump and trying to sell us beautiful ginger children, Blake Lively posted this weird editorial/layout/thing on her Preserve site. The editorial/post is called “The Allure of Antebellum.” Antebellum being the pre-Civil War era in the American South. As in, Blake wants to romanticize the era where ladies didn’t have the right to vote and human beings were sold like property. This is what was written in the post:

Georgia peaches, sweet tea, and the enticement of a smooth twang…we all love a bit of southern charm. These regional mainstays, along with an innate sense of social poise, evoke an unparalleled warmth and authenticity in style and tradition.

The term “Southern Belle” came to fruition during the Antebellum period (prior to the Civil War), acknowledging women with an inherent social distinction who set the standards for style and appearance. These women epitomized Southern hospitality with a cultivation of beauty and grace, but even more with a captivating and magnetic sensibility. While at times depicted as coy, these belles of the ball, in actuality could command attention with the ease of a hummingbird relishing a pastoral bloom.

Like the debutantes of yesteryear, the authenticity and allure still ring true today. Hoop skirts are replaced by flared and pleated A-lines; oversized straw toppers are transformed into wide-brimmed floppy hats and wool fedoras.

The prowess of artful layering -the southern way- lies in inadvertent combinations. From menswear-inspired overcoats to the fluidity of soft flowing separates, wrap yourself up in tactile layers that elicit a true sense of seasonal lure.

Embrace the season and the magic below the Mason-Dixon with styles as theatric as a Dixie drawl.

[From Preserve]

Now, do I think Blake meant anything rude, racist or nasty by this? Not at all. I think she’s a white lady who never considered the fact that she was romanticizing a period of time that many Americans consider to be part of the darkest in our history. Like, she’s seen Gone with the Wind 20 times and she’s never watched 12 Years A Slave.

I didn’t even care that much about the story/controversy because I thought it was about historical ignorance more than any conscious choice to align herself with the Confederacy. But then Blake made an even stupider mistake. Gawker had written a harsh critique of Blake’s “Allure of Antebellum” post and Blake’s lawyers sent a take-down notice to Gawker – see here. She was trying to shut down criticism of her stupid pro-Antebellum editorial. Is this just a rookie mistake? Because whenever I try to look through Preserve, I’m always struck by how disorganized it is, so much so I can’t even concentrate on the “message.” Maybe she should focus more on making Preserve more user-friendly?

Dr. Nancy Snyderman is sorry for violating Ebola quarantine: arrogant or contrite?

snyderman
About a week and a half ago, we learned that a freelance cameraman working with NBC’s health reporting team in Liberia had contracted Ebola. Ashoko Mukpo, 33, is an American who worked with Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC’s chief medical correspondent, for about three days to film the devastating effects of the Ebola epidemic. When the news came out that Mukpo had contracted the virus, Snyderman said thatmy suspicion is he was infected before we met him.” She also pledged to quarantine herself for 21 days, the virus’ maximum incubation period, to ensure that she did not come down with symptoms. (Ebola is only transmittable when a person is symptomatic.) The president of NBC News also promised that Snyderman and the team that accompanied her to Liberia “will not come to work, and they will stay at home taking their temperatures twice daily and staying in touch with the local health authorities for the remainder of the recommended 21-day period.” The quarantine was considered voluntary in that they were deemed low risk to contract the virus.

Snyderman and her team were busted violating their self-imposed quarantine when they were seen picking up takeout late last week in New Jersey. Now their quarantine has become mandatory until October 22 and Snyderman has issued a statement which is said to be an apology. It sounds more like one of those “sorry if you were offended” apologies.

As TMZ reported … Snyderman and 2 members of her crew — all under quarantine — made a food run to Peasant Grill near Princeton University. Sources say New Jersey health officials investigated and concluded based on witness accounts that Snyderman was in the car while a crew member got the grub.

Williams just read Snyderman’s statement on “NBC Nightly News,” in which she says, “While under voluntary quarantine guidelines, which called for our team to avoid public contact for 21 days, members of our group violated those guidelines and understand that our quarantine is now mandatory until 21 days have passed. We remain healthy and our temperatures are normal. As a health professional I know that we have no symptoms and pose no risk to the public, but I am deeply sorry for the concerns this episode caused.

“We are thrilled that Ashoka is getting better and our thoughts continue to be with the thousands affected by Ebola whose stories we all went to cover.”

[From TMZ and People]

I’m concerned with how blase this statement is. It sounds like she’s saying “no biggie, but we understand why you’re worried.” Is that true, is this no big deal, or is it a huge deal when our only chance of beating this virus is to track down the people who might be exposed and contain them? It seems like a big deal to me and like this doctor and her crew are not taking this seriously. How could NBC vet and approve this statement? It reads as incredibly rude.

Jennifer Lawrence whips out her ‘nitro’: ‘Cool Ranch Doritos are my girl’

Jennifer Lawrence’s cover interview for the November issue of Vanity Fair has given me whiplash. That’s the nature of this particular beast. Part of the discussion included JLaw’s reaction to her stolen photos. She nailed it with her furious yet measured message to the hackers and people who looked at her photos.

Then Vanity Fair started to release quotes from the main interview. JLaw dove into dangerous territory by claiming to “worship” Woody Allen. She bashed gluten-free diets. Some people saw this as Goop shade. Is JLaw really that calculating? I don’t think she thinks that far ahead when speaking. Words simply spill out of her mouth. She’s always been obsessed with junk food and carbs. But maybe JLaw unconsciously dropped some shade on the woman who is still married to her boyfriend. Hollywood Life says Goop thinks JLaw’s comments are “ignorant,” for what it’s worth.

Anyway. Vanity Fair has released a behind-the-scenes video of JLaw’s interview. They’re parceling this stuff out, as they should. JLaw is big business for mags. This video is interesting because Jennifer has gone fully “nitro.” I sense that she’s nervous about jumping into a grueling new press circuit. She’s very aware of the ongoing backlash that follows her. Most of the time, JLaw disappears in between tours. This time, we’re fresh off the Martin Lawrence gossip. She’s worried, and it shows in the video. Jennifer answers a series of questions, and she’s pretty spazzy. Yes, “pointless gossip” and junk food comes up:

What scares her? “Spiders. I’m very afraid of spiders. And ghosts. I wouldn’t say I’m as afraid of ghosts as I am paranoid of ghosts.”

Her junk food weakness: “Well, Cool Ranch Doritos are my girl. I’ve been trying to wean myself off of Cool Ranch Doritos and move onto Pirate’s Booty. It’s just not doing the trick … Cheez-Its.”

Is she tempted to use social media? “Nooo. Tempted? I have 112 unread emails right now. You know, I’m so not tempted to become more accessible. I don’t want anyone to talk to me, ever.”

Does she want to direct? “I’ve always wanted to produce because I remember reading these incredible scripts that would never see the light of day. Then I’d drive through Westwood and see some of the crap that was coming out, and I was like ‘What is going on with the world?’ So I’ve always wanted to produce, and Glass Castle being my first project was so perfect because I was so moved by that book.”

Who did she admire as a kid? “Destiny’s Child was my first CD. Uh, TLC. I met Jay Z and I was so embarrassed because you could see my knees bouncing up and down. He was like, ‘Are you okay?’ I was like, “Yeaahh. Huh huh. Bye. Aaaahah.’ They’re king and queen of America! Or of music. And then Brad and Angelina are the king and queen of movies. At least I think”

The last show she binge-watched: “Well, the Kardashians were just in Thailand so that was a pretty big deal. I’m catching up on all the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills … I’m trying to stay up to speed on all the pointless gossip that goes on in Hollywood. [Laughs.] I haven’t watched the news.”

[From Vanity Fair]

Jennifer seems a little vapid here, but you know I’d still eat pizza with her. She gets a lot of criticism for constantly talking about bodily functions and dreaming about cake, but I still like her. What I don’t get is the obsession with Cool Ranch. When I visualized the Doritos dust that ruined the American Hustle costumes, I was thinking of the Jacked Spice Street Taco flavor. Not something bland like Cool Ranch.

FYI: Nick Hoult spoke out about the stolen pics. He said, “It’s shocking that things like that happen in the world. It’s a shame.” Oh, and apparently JLaw & Nick will film a sex scene for X-Men: Apocalpse. That should be interesting if he’s really dating Kristen Stewart. JLaw, of course, is still with the king of elevator music.

Chadwick Boseman: It’s a ‘struggle’ for black actors to be viable for stardom

wenn21730430

A while back, I went to see Get On Up, the James Brown bio-pic starring Chadwick Boseman. The movie had issues, mostly because James Brown was a pretty terrible person in his personal life, but Chadwick was a revelation as James Brown throughout every period of Brown’s adulthood. Chadwick managed to get the lead after his largely successful turn in 42, where he played Jackie Robinson. So, Boseman is now mainly known for two major bio-pics. What’s up with that? Why is Boseman not being offered interesting lead roles in non-bio-pic films?

When Chadwick Boseman was first approached to play James Brown in “Get On Up,” his first thought was “I definitely do not want to do another biopic.” The actor was coming off playing Jackie Robinson in “42″ and was looking for something “more contemporary, maybe something that was more action oriented,” he told HuffPost Live in an interview on Monday.

But black actors are denied such opportunities, Scott Mendelson argued in a piece for Forbes.com. He wrote: “Chadwick Boseman may be being courted for every would-be biopic of every famous black historical figure around, but why is the obviously talented and painfully charismatic actor not being courted for the kind of projects that routinely end up starring the likes of Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pine?”

Boseman recognizes this reality, but doesn’t entirely agree.

“There definitely is a starring vehicle, but this is a business and a machine, to a certain degree,” he explained. “It’s all about the machine realizing that it’s a viable thing to make a black actor a star, and I think that’s a struggle.”

And while the 37-year-old regrets the ongoing challenge of securing certain parts as a black actor, he chooses not to harp on it.

“It’s always been a struggle,” he said. “I know I’m up against odds that are not necessarily as fair or the same, but I can’t focus on it.”

[From HuffPo]

I think he’s basically saying that there’s a fight to be had over the issue of diversity in Hollywood, but he’s not interested in being the face of the discussion. Which is his right. Because, let’s face it, if he came out and talked about how he wasn’t offered this part or that part because he’s black, people would label him a “troublemaker” or “rude” or “unprofessional.”

Meanwhile, it seems that Chadwick’s turn in Get On Up probably won’t get much traction for a possible Oscar campaign. That’s despite the fact that this upcoming Oscars will probably be the least diverse awards show in 20 years. Slate had an interesting piece on why Boseman should be given serious consideration for a Best Actor Oscar nomination – go here to read.

Jessica Lange totally ignored Lea Michele on the red carpet: hilarious or rude?

wenn21799900

We didn’t cover the American Horror Story: Freakshow premiere earlier this week. My bad! I remember glancing through the photos and thinking, “God, the red carpet is such a snooze.” The biggest fashion headline was Lea Michele’s dress, seen above. It’s a blue velvet Cushnie et Ochs. It’s okay. I like the color but her friggin’ bangs destroy any goodwill I might have towards this look.

But a funny thing happened on this red carpet and the video started picking up steam yesterday. Apparently, Lea was posing her butt off, giving her patented sexyface for the cameras, when Jessica Lange walked through the red carpet. I mean that literally – Lange just walked in a straight line through the carpet, refusing to stop and pose for the cameras. Watch what happens when Lea tries to say hello to Lange:

It’s pretty funny. But here’s the thing: I don’t even think it was personal on Lange’s part. Like, I know people will want to say “Well, obviously Jessica Lange hates Lea Michele’s try-hard,” but I think Lange is pretty much over everything, you know? She didn’t want to do press. She didn’t want to say hello to Lea or anyone else. Lea didn’t even look hurt – she recovered really well after being totally ignored.

Natalie Dormer on her ‘smirk’: ‘I’ve a lopsided mouth. I can’t help it’

Natalie Dormer

Natalie Dormer has a new interview with The Sunday Times to promote her role in next month’s Mockingjay: Part I release. (I can’t wait for this movie.) Natalie always delivers, and she looks super fierce with her half-shaved head for this role. She says taking on the part of Cressida is a welcome change to playing queens and random, smoking hot blondes.

Natalie rails a little bit in this interview. She talks about how drama school doesn’t teach actors to deal with interest in their private lives. That’s a common complaint. I think most actors are thrilled with initial fame before reality sets in. What I find more worthy of discussion is Natalie’s sensitivity about her looks. This is completely understandable because actors are under such a microscope. Natalie was always taunted for her “lopsided mouth,” and it remains an issue in her career. Her publicist even told her to stop “doing that smile.” Really? That’s awful. Natalie’s wry smirk-smile is one of the coolest things I’ve seen on a red carpet. She’s a natural badass, but she’s not immune to criticism:

Criticism of her smile: “It really bugs me the way people criticize how actors look. We’re not models. Models exist. I get accused of having a haughty smugness. I have a lopsided mouth. I can’t help it. I was born with it. It looks as if I am smirking. I have had my publicist tell me, ‘Don’t do that smile on the red carpet.’ I’m, like, ‘That’s my smile.’”

Life as an actress is terrifying: “It’s not luck. You have a lot of heartache. The public has a misconstrued idea of how easy it is for an actor to get a job, especially if it is outside their casting remit. I danced until I was 16, so I hold my shoulders back and I’m reasonably articulate. Suddenly people think I can only play strong women. I’d love to play a really weak, pathetic, vulnerable woman, You’d be surprised how much of the industry would then turn and say, ‘Oh, Natalie Dormer can’t play that kind of role. She only plays queens and strong women.’ I’m meant to be a chameleon. This is why I was so happy to get The Hunger Games and run around with a shaved head and a semi-automatic rifle in a dystopian future.”

On interest in celebs’ private lives: “There is this sense of entitlement, of ownership, that you should know everything about everybody. They don’t sit you down at drama school and say, ‘OK, you wanna be an actor? You wanna hold the mirror up to nature? And, oh, by the way, the press and 50m people on Twitter will think they have the right to know the details of your private life.’”

Why GoT is popular:Sopranos in Middle-earth. It deals with all these human truths and absolutes at a safe distance of fantasy.”

[From The Sunday Times]

Natalie keeps her private life under wraps, mostly. She’s been engaged to Irish actor Anthony Byrne since 2011. They’ve been too busy to plan a wedding, so we’ll see what happens.

It’s terrible that Natalie has had to deal with so many rude attitudes about her infamous smile. She says one of her sisters has the same smile, and they’ve both been bullied for it since childhood. I think Natalie’s smirk is awesome! It sets her apart from the mile-wide grins that run throughout Hollywood. Or even worse, the open-mouthed Kris Jenners of the world. Keep on smirking, Nat.

Charlize Theron is scowly, rude, unpleasant at her new SoulCycle studio

FFN_Celebs_PFW_Dior_CHP_070714_51471347

Over the summer, we heard a really funny story about Charlize Theron. Tia Mowry apparently goes to the same SoulCycle as Charlize, and Tia mentioned to In Touch Weekly that she once went over to Charlize to say “hi” to her and Charlize’s reaction was to roll her eyes and say “OH MY GOD.” Tia said Charlize was “just mean.” Sources later claimed that Charlize was trying to get Tia banned from SoulCycle (what happens at SoulCycle stays at SoulCycle) but other sources were like, “Meh, this never happened.” Tia tried to back-track a little too, but I still believe her original story. Anyway, here’s the latest:

As In Touch has previously reported, Charlize Theron was called out for diva behavior at a SoulCycle class in Beverly Hills for being rude to Tia Mowry.

Now, In Touch exclusively reveals that the Oscar winner has switched cycling studios — but took her attitude with her!

“She always arrives late to class with a scowl on her face and has the nerve to ask people who are already settled on their bikes to switch,” a source at West Hollywood’s Crunch gym exclusively tells In Touch. “She always causes a scene. People know to steer clear of her!”

[From In Touch Weekly]

I have no problem believing that Charlize always wears a scowl and I totally believe that she’s rude and unpleasant in general. But! I think Charlize has been in Africa, filming The Last Face with Sean Penn for the past few months. Is she even in LA? Or are these older stories of Charlize’s bitchiness? Oh, and I HATE when people are late. Is Charlize the kind of person who shows up late to a spin class?

Miles Teller clarifies his ‘Divergent’ shade, ends up reiterating his comments

FFN_KM_Divergent_Prem_031814_51359407

Last week, I covered Miles Teller’s W Magazine interview. He sort of threw some shade on the Divergent franchise, which oh-by-the-way he’s still contractually obligated for the sequels. He told W that he was “feeling dead inside” during filming of Divergent and “I didn’t have an interesting part, and I’d taken the film for business reasons: It was the first movie I’d done that was going to have an international audience. I called my agent and said, ‘This sucks.’” The backlash against him happened very quickly, and to his credit, he reacted within the same news cycle. He tweeted:

His rep also went around issuing denials and clarifications. All of this has come about while Miles is trying to promote Whiplash, the little indie film that could walk away with a few Oscar nominations. Miles is incredibly proud of Whiplash, so it’s kind of funny/sad that for the past week, he’s had to answer endless questions about how much he hates Divergent. When he sat down with HuffPo Live yesterday, he got questions about it again!! You can see the video here.

One thing is for sure: Miles Teller is nothing like his rude Divergent character Peter. The actor cleared up his controversial comments that he felt “dead inside” while filming Veronica Roth’s best-selling YA film adaptation during an interview with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, Sept. 30.

“I think we talked on the phone for an hour, and if the conversation was transcribed I don’t think it would have been framed the way it was framed,” Teller, 27, explained of his conversation with W magazine.

“I’ve been offered good money to do absolutely terrible scripts that I haven’t done. I guess the business reasons for me [to join Divergent] — it was a smaller part acting wise — but it would give me an opportunity to be in a film that would be seen internationally,” he continued. “A big reason why I did the film was working with Shailene [Woodley] and director [Neil Burger].”

Teller also explained how his hectic schedule is what made him feel so worn down during production. The actor had just worked on four films back-to-back, and only had a month inbetween his comedy That Awkward Moment before joining Woodley in Chicago for four months. “I was just really burnt out,” he said.

[From Us Weekly]

So, basically, he wasn’t misquoted at all. He felt burnt out, dead inside (if you will) and he did the film because he thought it would give him more name-recognition overseas. I love that he can’t even really lie about it. What’s the big deal anyway? I mean, it’s rude and unprofessional to tell the truth about a Hunger Games-ripoff but at the end of the day…I don’t know, it’s not a career-destroyer or anything.

Miles was also on the Tonight Show two nights ago. Fallon didn’t ask him about his Divergent comments, thank God. You can see part of the interview here.
