Back in the 90s, all Julia Roberts had to do was fart on camera (or just do Mona Lisa Smile…same difference), and a production studio would fork over $20 million. These days, Hollywood is pinching pennies, realizing audiences care more about the CGI than who is starring in a flick. Why pay for Meryl Streep when you can just hire one of those Westworld robots? It doesn’t mean you’re going to see The Rock and other actors in line at the soup kitchen…it just means they’re paid differently (aka back-end deals). Or, if you’re him, you just say you won’t Tweet about the movie you have opening on Friday unless the studio forks over a cool million dollars. Continue reading
We all know 43-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio would have sooner let that bear in The Revenant eat his ass than date someone his own age, but he really sent us into a state of questioning everything we knew when Camila Morrone, Al Pacino’s quasi step-daughter (he’s been dating Camila’s mother for about seven years) and current boo thang, went brunette. Leo dating brunettes is about as likely as me eating kale. The duo, who have been dating for about 4 months, showed up to lunch Wednesday in a manner where it looked like Camila was escorting a hobo into an emergency room, but I guess that means they are still together!
Cutesy celebrity wagers are pretentious and annoying but when said wager requires me to scan pictures of Tom Hardy’s biceps on a Wednesday morning, I can let it slide. In 2016, Tom Hardy said that he and his The Revenant co-star Leonardo Dicaprio made a bet about whether or not he’d get an Oscar nomination for getting all ornery and ugly in the film. Leonardo bet that Tom would get an Oscar nom, and Tom thought the opposite. And instead of ruining a man’s life for a single dollar like normal millionaires, Tom and Leo’s bet involved actual flesh and blood.
William Bradley Pitt is on the prowl and at a charity auction on Saturday, he tried to bid his way to a date with the mother of dragons herself, Emilia Clarke. I guess the Golden Globes wasn’t the only hot ticket in town this weekend! So how much does it cost to make time with the worst wig in Westeros? More than Brad’s final bid of $120,000!
If you’ve ever wondered what Titanic would have been like if James Cameron had cast a grown ass man in the part of Jack instead of fetus-faced Leonardo DiCaprio, then you better hold on to your bonnet! Kate Winslet said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that she auditioned with The One And Only Texas T-Rex, Matthew McConaughey. Damn! I think Matthew would have been fabulous and much more believable as a worldly vagabond. What a wasted opportunity.
The holidays are here, and there is only one topic in the world that you can talk about with your entire family without pissing anyone off just as they pass the gravy: why couldn’t Rose AND Jack fit on that door and both live in Titanic?! Continue reading
