Don your chicest babydoll dress and strap on those Doc Martens because the 90s are back, bayyybeee! Ok, so 90s fashion has been in for a while and 2000s trends (ugh) are making their way onto the red carpet. But you can’t truly have a 90s comeback without Gen X poster child, Winona Ryder. Winona slapped her finest dark eyeliner to team up with Marc Jacobs and show off some new shoulder bags.
I know they say you aren’t supposed to beat a dead horse, but what if the horse is actually undead and not really a horse at all, but more of a moldering human corpse with a lot of snappy one-liners? This is the question the folks at Plan B Entertainment, Brad Pitt’s production company, asked themselves before deciding to go ahead and flog the shit out of Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice. But you know what they also say? You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink, especially if he’s dead. But according to Screen Rant, after spending more than 30 years in The Neitherworld Waiting Room (sometimes referred to as “development hell” by Hollywood types), that green lady finally called Beetlejuice 2’s number, with Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder both reported to be on board.
Vanessa Paradis And Winona Ryder Will No Longer Testify In Johnny Depp’s Libel Trial, But They’ve Both Defended Him In Statements
The courtroom battle in London between Johnny Depp and The Sun over The Sun calling him a “wife-beater” rolls on. Johnny’s team has continued to defend him over the accusations that he was a “wife-beater” and violent toward Amber Heard during their marriage. Amber’s team continues to deny that she was the violent wreck and that he was the abusive one. This shit show is such a shitty mess that an actual shit has made an appearance during the trial.
Johnny’s lawyers were expected to call his exes, Vanessa Paradis and Winona Ryder, to testify as character witnesses for him via video call, but that’s not going to happen anymore. Johnny’s team has decided their appearances will not be necessary. So the court won’t get to see Winona Ryder’s face go through a rollercoaster of emotions as she’s asked about Johnny’s alleged abusive ways.
I’ve never actually seen 2000’s Chicken Run, which The Hollywood Reporter calls “the most successful stop-motion animation of all time,” but if I did, I don’t think I’d be all too concerned that one of the chickens didn’t sound her age, especially given the fact that the average life-span of a chicken is 5-10 years. So when I learned that former HSOTD Julia Sawalha, the actress who voiced Ginger in the original wasn’t being invited back to reprise her role in the upcoming sequel, I assumed it must have been because she was a raging anti-Semite with bad breath and a storied history of being a racist homophobe. However, it turns out she didn’t get invited back because she is an ancient 51-year-old and the producers told her they were going to recast a younger actor for the role. 51, can you imagine? That’s like 500 in chicken years!
Francis Ford Coppola Disputes Winona Ryder’s Account Of Verbal Abuse On The Set Of “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”
One might rightfully call Winona Ryder a sticky-fingered vixen, but to call her a liar, as Mel Gibson did earlier this week when he disputed her account of an abhorrent antisemitic comment he allegedly made to her at a party, is not really fair. Especially coming from an unflushable turd with a long and well documented history of abhorrent antisemitic behavior. Now, according to People, Francis Ford Coppola has come forward to dispute another anecdote Winona shared in her recent Sunday Times interview.
Hollywood has decided that after twenty years, they’re going to make a sequel to the 2000 animated film, Chicken Run. Sure, why not? Who couldn’t use some more talking chickens in their lives? The only problem is that Mel Gibson starred in the original film, which means that in theory, he’d be brought back to voice Rocky the rooster. That also means that there was probably at least a handful of cast and crew members that made the same “Oh shit” face as that chicken behind Mel’s right shoulder. But they can rest assured there will be no problematic comments grunted from Mel in the recording booth, because the role of Rocky is getting recast.
