We interrupt our regularly scheduled program of doom, gloom, and full-throttle fuckery to bring you some actually happy news. “Happy news, I haven’t been touched by that in a while,” said everyone’s ear holes and eyeballs. Three-time Oscar winner Kirsten Dunst (yes, I tell myself that Kiki won Oscars for Drop Dead Gorgeous, Bring It On, and Dick) married Jesse Plemons after six years together. Yes, they’ve been together for six years, which may drop a load of SHOCK onto anyone who thought their blondie love first bloomed after they met at this year’s Oscars when Kiki was working as a seat filler!
Just when you thought everyone was done talking about the 2022 Oscars, namely: Will Smith, and everything that went along with that (like the fact that Will can’t get jiggy with the Oscars for a whole ten years). But then Amy Schumer pops up and reminds us that she too had her own Oscar moment that apparently won’t die. And according to Amy, her little bit with Kirsten Dunst and her husband Jesse Plemons went over so poorly with the audience at home, that Amy became the target of major hate, including death threats.
Jesse Plemons Talks About The Time That Benedict Cumberbatch’s Method Acting Pissed Him Off On “The Power Of The Dog” Set
Benedict Cumberbatch went full method for The Power Of The Dog and he almost killed himself via nicotine poisoning three times. But it’s all for the
Oscar ART! And while Benedict’s acting is getting great reviews, his process didn’t go over well all the time. Benedict plays Phil Burbank in The Power of the Dog–based on Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel about a 1920s Montana rancher–and he’s described as a “brutal ranch owner” so, of course, his assholery spilled out onto the rest of the cast. Co-star of the film, Jesse Plemons, who plays his brother, says that Benedict pissed him off when he basically called him fat. Well hey, at least Benedict didn’t lean into the ginger angle too.
Well, whaddya know, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons are expecting their second child together. Congrats! Their first baby, a son named Ennis, is 2 years old. Wait, if the first one is Ennis, does this mean the second one will be named Jack Twist? Girl or boy, I think it’s sexy! And “sexy” is definitely the adjective you wanna shoot for when naming your children. Continue reading
The new remake of the 1951 John Huston classic, The African Queen, that starred Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart finally has a trailer. For some reason they’re calling it Jungle Cruise and it stars Emily Blunt and The Rock. It does make me wonder though. It’s a Disney movie, and coincidentally, there just so happens to be a ride at Disneyland called Jungle Cruise. It’s almost too on the nose. Could it be that it’s not a coincidence at all? Nah! There’s no way in hell they’d try to make an entire movie based on the flimsy premise of a lazy river from which a dusty hippopotamus sprays stagnant pond water on a boatload of sunburnt tourists. Sure, they did make all those Pirates of The Caribbean movies, but those only grossed a measly $5 billion worldwide! Surely Disney wouldn’t attempt the same folly twice!
It’s a bit redundant to say so, because aren’t all award shows just an excuse for fashion houses to clean out their local Fabric Barn and send a famous person down the carpet in more material than a 1980s canopy bed set? But the Emmys did see a lot of by-the-yardage last night, like on Jessica Biel, who said yes to a white Ralph & Russo dress. If you think Jessica and Justin Timberlake look like they stopped by the Emmys on their way to appearing on the top of a wedding cake, you’re not the only one.
