Open Post: Hosted By Tilda Swinton Looking Like The Mayor Of Whoville At The VFF Premiere Of “Suspiria”
If you can’t get Toni Collette for your satanic dance academy horror flick remake (ooo, Hereditary was so good and she was so good in it as Trauma Mom), then you grab yourself some Tilda Swinton! Tilda is the androgynous acting angel whose handsome countenance lifts every movie she’s in to a much higher level. Here she is at the Suspiria premiere at the Venice International Film Festival yesterday looking like she’s about to shut the Grinch down with some roast beast and a bit of “HA HOO WHORE HAY.”
Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the 1977 horror classic Suspiria is getting mixed reviews so far, but Tilda’s been noted as the bright spot. And there’s a rumor that 82-year-old newcomer Lutz Ebersdorf, who plays a shrink in the movie, is really Tilda in heavy prosthetics. Luca has denied that. I believe Luca. Like Tilda needs prosthetics to change into another face. All she has to do is raise her face toward the rays shooting off of her home planet and hum the shape-shifting chant of her alien ancestors as her face changes into that of an 82-year-old German man. Prosthetics! How insult. They act like Tilda is a mere human.
Check out more pics of Tilda from the Suspiria premiere in the gallery below including Dakota Johnson, Thom Yorke (he did the music), Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Alek Wek, Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, and the original Suspiria’s star Jessica Harper!
Reboot-a-palooza continues on the silver screen this summer with the upcoming Ocean’s 8, a lady-led spinoff of Ocean’s 11. The film drops this Friday, and co-stars Cate Blanchett and Sarah Paulson dropped by Today this morning to promote it. Their snarky banter, laying their awards dicks on the table, and mom jokes made Hoda Kotb laugh so hard that her co-host Savannah Guthrie had to come out and help her finish the interview. At least, that’s what they’re saying, but I think Hoda was crying over lack of job security since Cate and Sarah were twice as messed in the head as she normally is during the fifteenth hour with Kathie Lee Gifford.

There were some real upside down and sideways looks on display at the The Council of Fashion Designers of America awards in NYC last night. Most notably Whoopi Goldberg giving us Little Bo Peep who lost her sheep and was forced to go to the big city and take out a bank loan for more, wearing her best Big Business suit. The added bonus of that suit is that those giant bell bottoms probably ring so damn loud, the sheep should have no problem finding their way back home.
Other notable looks included: Cate Blanchett‘s tuxedo/ baked potato/ butcher’s apron combo, and the night’s host Issa Rae’s belt that read “Every Nigga Is A Star”. All of those looks and more are in the gallery but for now, we’ve got plenty of high fashion to keep us in “what is going on here”s for a week.
This year was supposed to be the year of no selfies at Cannes. So naturally I assumed that if there was going to be any kind of organized protest on the red carpet, it would be by a group of outraged attention whores. Instead, this year’s Cannes Jury President Cate Blanchett and French director Agnès Varda led 82 women up the red carpet to protest gender inequality at the film festival.
During the launch of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, Cate Blanchett was one of those actresses who didn’t have much to say, but her name did appeared on Time’s Up’s list of supporters. But later on, she had us all confused about what side she was on by coming out in support of Woody Allen. Cate recently spoke to Variety, and she made it very clear what side she’s on. She also walked back her support of Woody just a teensy-tiny bit.
If you think the world needs more Rihanna movies, you need your head checked. But you’re also in for a not-that-bad trailer for Ocean’s 8. The trailer gives further details on how the lady Oceans will be robbing RiRi’s favorite spot to rule: the Met Gala!
As you know from the first trailer, Sandra Bullock is supposed to be Debbie Ocean, the sister to George Clooney’s Danny Ocean from the original trio of films. While we don’t see George, we do see that Anne Hathaway is supposed to be some high-falutin’ actress who goes to the Met to hobnob and wear diamonds that the Debbie-led gals try to snatch. Since they’re all later seen on the subway together, I think it might be safe to assume Anne is in on the heist…or they just took a break from larceny to show her Times Square. The new trailer reveals each member of the heist is promised $16.5 million if they take part in the jewelry theft at Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite night of the year.
Cate Blanchett is on hand to show more of that mop wig and Party City leopard print coat. Rihanna is supposed to be the tech wiz of the whole operation, and Helena Bonham Carter should get at least $20 million for wearing a busted Marie Antoinette wig to a fictional version of Anna Wintour’s Death Star of a night in May.
Speaking of Anna Wintour, I really hope there’s a plot twist and it’s revealed that she’s the ringleader of the whole thing. I smell a sequel!
