Elle Fanning Says She Once Lost A Role In A Big Movie Franchise Because She Didn’t Have Enough Instagram Followers
Elle Fanning currently has over 6 million Instagram followers, but apparently, there was a time when her lack of followers cost her a role in a big movie. Elle revealed in a recent interview with the Happy Sad Confused podcast that she lost out on a franchise gig because she didn’t have enough Instagram followers. Welp, fuck… tragically for us, it seems that TikTokers like Addison Rae are gonna be in a lot more movies going forward.
Cate Blanchett Calls For The End Of Televised Awards Shows While Accepting A Critics Choice Award On The CW…
The Critics Choice Awards aired on The CW last night, and a not-so-surprising guest crashed that shit like, “Bitch, I’m STILL here.” I’m talking about COVID-19. Nominees Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Jamie Lee Curtis, as well as presenter Michelle Pfeiffer, had to sit the show out after testing positive for Coronavirus. COVID-19 didn’t fuck with Cate Blanchett, though. She showed up to last night’s ceremony, won Best Actress for her performance in Tár, and used some of her time on stage to praise all actresses in the business and also declared that we need to finally call the time of death on the “televised horse race” known as awards shows. And then Cate galloped away with her Critics Choice Award in hand to place it right next to her two Oscars, three BAFTAs, four Golden Globes, three SAG Awards, and many other horse race prizes.
Nearly All Of Angelina Jolie’s Kids Joined Her At The “Maleficent 2” Premiere
The premiere for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was held last night in Los Angeles, and it’s not exactly a surprise that Angelina Jolie would be there. You know, since she’s the second-billed star (I’m pretty sure her cheekbones get top billing). And Angelina decided to bring a plus one, plus two, plus three, plus four, and plus five in the form of her kids Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, Zahara, and Knox. It’s pretty clear that Angelina didn’t circulate a family-wide text beforehand about who would be wearing what, otherwise Zahara wouldn’t have shown up looking like Maleficent’s even more diabolically dramatic replacement that was recruited from an evil finishing school. That scorpion looks like it’s about to hand in its notice and go to work on Zahara’s dress.
Elle Fanning Passed Out At Cannes Because Her Dress Was Too Tight
Elle Fanning is currently making the rounds at Cannes because she’s serving on the Cannes jury (the youngest person to do so, ever). That means she’s also got about 1.5 million costume changes to cover while she’s there, and not all of those are going to be winners. Best case scenario, your bad fashion will land you on a worst dressed list. Worst case scenario, it lands you on your ass because your dress was pulled too tight for your organs to function.
Angelina Jolie And Her Prosthetic Cheekbones Are Back In The Teaser Trailer For “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil”
Angelina Jolie’s vindictive demon hell-bent on revenge is back! “Pfft, some might say she never left” scoffed Brad Pitt to himself, I’m sure. Disney released the first official teaser trailer for Maleficent 2 yesterday. As we already knew, it’s actually called Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which still sounds like a less-interesting, lawsuit-dodging rip-off of Elvira: Mistress of the Dark. Now we get to see Angelina’s Maleficent in action once again. Careful you don’t cut yourself on those cheekbones, they’re just as sharp as you remember.
Amazon Doesn’t Have A Release Date For Woody Allen’s “A Rainy Day In New York”
Yesterday we learned that 2019 would be the first year in several decades in which Woody Allen won’t be releasing a film. According to Page Six, that honor might go to 2018 instead. His latest for Amazon, A Rainy Day in New York, was shot last September and October in New York on a budget of $25 million, and was reportedly scheduled for release later this year. No official date was set, it was more just a ballpark estimate depending on when Amazon Studios decided it should come out. Page Six seems to think that A Rainy Day will never see the light of day. They claim the movie has been “shelved” indefinitely.
When asked for comment, Amazon said: “No release date has ever been set for the film.”
It probably wouldn’t be too big of a shock if Amazon shelved it completely. Audiences might not want to watch Jude Law have sex with what he thinks is a 15-year-old girl. Or possibly the bigger elephant in the room, Woody himself. A few months after filming wrapped and #MeToo broke, several actors who have worked with Woody spoke out and vowed never to work again with the alleged creep. A Rainy Day stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Hall, and Griffin Newman all donated their salaries to charity.
But maybe there’s nothing up, and Amazon just hasn’t picked a date. Or maybe Amazon has shelved it for the time being while they work with their marketing department and decide what kind of tagline should be on the poster for A Rainy Day in New York. Because “Even the actors in this film don’t want to be associated with this downpour of cringe” feels just a tad long.
