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
A couple of months, Uma Thurman revealed that she had sustained major knee and back damage while filming Kill Bill and Kill Bill Vol. 2 back in 2003. The car she was driving was about as iffy as Quentin Tarantino’s dye job, and she ended up crashing. At the time, she accused Quentin of trying to kill her. If you ask Uma’s knees whether they’d like to work with Quentin again, they’d probably answer by knocking out “NO” in Morse code. But if you ask Uma, like someone recently has, she’d answer yes.
Leonardo DiCaprio And Brad Pitt Are The Most Dynamic Duo Since Paul Newman and Robert Redford, According To Quentin Tarantino
That’s a Photoshopped picture of Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio’s faces on the wax figures of film legends Robert Redford and Paul Newman (as their characters from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). But if Quentin Tarantino’s instincts prove to be correct, then Madame Tussauds better get ready to retire Bobby and Paul and start working on carving a new legendary duo out of wax. But maybe they can keep that sassy pose for Leo?
Sharon Tate’s Sister Is Not Here For Brad Pitt And Leonardo DiCaprio Starring In Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Movie
Ever since the Manson Family brutally murdered actress Sharon Tate and six other people during one horrifying weekend in August of 1969, Sharon’s sister Debra Tate has spoken out against her sister’s killers at parole hearings and in interviews. You can imagine Debra’s feelings about Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie centered around her sister’s murder reportedly starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. And if you can’t, well, let’s just say she ain’t jazzed about it. Continue reading
According to Variety, Brad Pitt has signed on to Quentin Tarantino’s movie about the Manson Family murders, which will come out on the 50th anniversary of the day of the LaBianca murders (and a day after the murder of Sharon Tate, which I’m sure Debra Tate loves). Brad will play Cliff Booth, the longtime stuntman for western actor Rick Dalton, played by Leonardo DiCaprio (speaking of 90s hunks with a cult following). Brad was rumored to be in talks for a role as a detective, but that obviously didn’t work out. Oh, and we can stop calling it Quentin Tarantino’s Manson movie.
The year 2003 was probably a pretty great year for Quentin Tarantino. And while it might have been good for Quentin, the feeling obviously wasn’t mutual because now 2003 is reaching through the space time continuum to pimp slap a bitch.
As Allison noted yesterday, a 2003 Howard Stern interview Quentin did while promoting Kill Bill has surfaced like a seriously fucked up penny. In that interview, Quentin vigorously and gleefully defended Roman Polanski by suggesting that his 13 year old victim was a party girl who was asking for it. Sorry Quentin, looks like 2018 hates you even harder.
