Christian Bale Claims He Acted As A Mediator Between Amy Adams And David O. Russell On The “American Hustle” Set
Christian Bale covers this month’s GQ to promote his latest flick, Amsterdam, directed by David O. Russell (31% on Rotty-Ts). This is the third time 48-year-old Christian’s been directed by 64-year-old David; he previously starred in The Fighter and American Hustle. The GQ interviewer brings up the claims that David’s behavior on the American Hustle set caused Amy Adams a lot of turmoil and tears. Christian confirms there was on-set drama, and that he acted as the “mediator” between actress and director. It was such a mess that Christian “STAY OFF THE FUCKING SET, MAN!!!” Bale had to play peacekeeper.
Here Are The Trailers For Disney’s Live-Action “The Little Mermaid,” “Hocus Pocus 2,” And “Disenchanted”
Mickey Mouse probably lived it up last night by popping bottles and making it rain Disney dollars on twerking mice at Disneyland’s Club 33. Because the trailers for several movies that are going to make his greedy ass even richer were released. D23 Expo, the event where Disney drops trailers and info for their upcoming projects, is happening this weekend in Anaheim, CA. And yesterday, Disney released the teaser trailer for its live-action The Little Mermaid, and full trailers for Hocus Pocus 2 and the Enchanted sequel called Disenchanted. There was also an appearance by one of Disenchanted‘s stars, Patrick Dempsey, who served snow daddy realness.
Awards season usually kicks off with a sloppy, boozy Golden Globes ceremony, but this year, the closest we got was a sloppy, blunted GG nominations announcement followed by some unpaid intern at the HFPA “live-tweeting” the results into a void. But ahead of tomorrow’s announcement of the Oscar nominations, things are looking up. Just not for perennial hopeful Amy Adams who was just nominated for two Razzie Awards for two separate roles this year. While The Golden Raspberry committee had to create an entirely new category devoted to Bruce Willis’ unprecedented EIGHT nominations in a single year, I still believe in Amy and want better for her, prompting me to write a simple invocation. So, please join me in prayer.
Here’s The Trailer For The Movie Version Of “Dear Evan Hansen” Where 27-Year-Old Ben Platt Plays A High School Student
In the new trailer for the movie version of the 2016 hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, 27-year-old Ben Platt reprises his titular title role as a high school student, following the tradition of adults playing totally unbelievable kids in movies and TV. Ben even went and stole Stockard Channing’s Rizzo wig from Grease to get the look just right. Ben won a Tony for the role but judging by his aged appearance in the trailer, he’s more likely to win a lifetime achievement award than an acting trophy for the 2021 Oscars race.
Amy Adams will NOT be the Susan Lucci of the Academy Awards, okay?! That role is sadly reserved for Glenn Close. But seriously, after being Oscar-nominated––and never winning––SIX times in just over twelve years, Amy (or more likely, Amy’s people) is determined to get her hands on one of those got damn trophies once and for all. And if it’s going to happen, it might as well happen during a year when the last thing anybody has been thinking about is going to the movies. At this rate, Ana de Armas is going to be the only Best Actress Oscar nominee of 2020 for her captivating performances in short films like “Running to Get Dunkin Donuts, Part 21” and “Ben, Hold My Mask While I Pick Up My Dog’s Shit”.
Corona isn’t the only thing going viral these days. With everybody on lockdown and bored out of their minds, we are grasping at straws for anything even mildly entertaining to distract us from this supremely shitty situation. Some desperate souls have even resorted to watching Cats! Which is why you may have seen the video that’s going around where Gal Gadot and a bafflingly random group of celebrities join together as one to sing John Lennon’s Imagine. You see, coronavirus got Gal to thinking: What if we are all really the same? And to her credit, when it comes right down to it, celebrities really are just like us. They’re also bored, scared, barely any of them can sing, and the ones who can sing, are always doing too much.
