Playing evil is more fun than playing good anyway, right?
The past year has been a big one for Lena Dunham, to say the least. Her HBO series became the most talked about show on television, and the 26 year-old renaissance woman (or girl) quickly became a "voice of her generation," as her alterego Hannah Horvath would phrase it. She won two Golden Globes. S ... More >>
He's good. Funny and relaxed. Smiles at his own jokes, which deflates them of any real harm. Loved the Ron Jeremy reference, laughed at the Rihanna/Chris Brown joke, like the crack about Meryl not being nominated.
The 1962 Granny Guignol classic Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? is being remade by Walter Hill, and it's time to line up two stars who are over the hill to play the parts. You know the drill. Jane is a nutjob who's stuck in her cutesy-pie kiddie routine and is so adorable except that she viciously ... More >>
Don't let this get out because it could ruin my career! There are some women that I happen to find terribly sexy, even now in Gay Pride month. But these dames needn't worry about me--I'll just admire them from afar, as well as in this glorious photo tribute.
Blame Sex and the City... Today brings us news of the "Burberry bandit," a man who reportedly robbed 14 Manhattan banks to fuel his high-fashion addiction, according to the New York Post. Cornell Neilly, 21, supposedly used the haul from the heists to buy "$400 sneakers and a Burberry shirt" whic ... More >>
While her husband hawks underwear -- as well he should -- Victoria Beckham has become a rising star in the high-end fashion world. She's bringing her stuff back to New York's own Fashion Week in a matter of days, and she's also dressing various stars for the real Fashion Week, i.e., the imminent Os ... More >>
Zero -- count 'em, zero -- Academy Award nominations were given to a quartet of films that made lots of other peoples' lists, and I know exactly why. The films are Shame, with Michael Fassbender as a pussy hound who can only get it up for quick, anonymous sex;
Charlize Theron and I had a fun chat at a luncheon promoting her new dark dramedy, Young Adult, in which she deftly plays a woman who eerily believes she belongs with her high school boyfriend, even though they broke up 17 years ago and he's married. Charlize talked about her admiration for Meryl S ... More >>
I just came from a special screening of Young Adult, written by Diablo Cody, in which Oscar winner Charlize Theron plays a fiction writer who becomes trapped in a delusion, staking out her high school boyfriend and desperately trying to steal him away from his wife and baby. After the movie, Charli ... More >>
I always assumed I was the only Italian-American only child in creation -- those people tend to procreate a lot -- but it turns out Al Pacino is one, too! I'm not alone! And I did a little research (and glanced at Us magazine) and found some other famous folk who have gone through life without sib ... More >>
Just like it's already Christmas in certain department stores, the Oscar predix business happens to be in full swing, with goldderby.com asking us pundits for our premature (I mean extremely mature) guesses as to who will get nominated. Here are mine as of this very moment. Bear in mind tha ... More >>
The Emmy nominations came out today, but my mind is stuck on the Oscars and how there will be no shortage of leading actress contenders to pick from in 2011. Not only is Meryl Streep donning prosthetics and an accent again, this time as moxieish Margaret Thatcher, but we have the following o ... More >>
Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's film gawks at its stars, visits Venice, has twist
How painful to step to the podium and caress your Academy Award while knowing that you're man is a dog who's playing around with a neo-Nazi motorcycle chick and your personal life has fallen to utter shit. Similarly, my auricles and ventricles go out to poor Kate Winslet, who's also suddenly ... More >>
Oscar winner Charlize Theron is the latest boldface name to admit she suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder, an anxiety ailment which plagues so many people that I'm starting to worry about it! Most celebrities stress out about things in closets, but Charlize says she frets about stuff ... More >>
The Wall Street Journal rounds up 10 of the country's best food trucks, some of which are owned by established restaurateurs. In New York, Calexico Carne Asada, Rickshaw Dumpling Truck, and the Tabla truck made the cut. [Wall Street Journal] When fish are in trouble, send celebrities to the rescue: ... More >>
Mind you, I'm not including anyone from the silent era because I'm always too busy reading their lips to assess their attributes. But looking through my old issues of Hollywood Confidential--and skimming through some Peoples for updates--I've decided that the 10 runners-up for "most stunning cinema ... More >>
Actually, I never even leave my seat at intermission.
The charming Craig Bierko is appearing on Broadway in the Marlon Brando role in Guys and Dolls, though he sardonically told me he's playing the role more like Shirley Jones. In the column this week [CLICK HERE], Bierko also talks about how he passed on the role of Chandler in Friends, which went to ... More >>
photo credit My head is still reeling from Lydia Hearst's comments in Page Six magazine, bristling about being compared to the immortal Paris Hilton. "Remember, I am a supermodel," Lydia wrote, dripping hauteur all over herself, "and have the award to prove it, and she is a celebrity. There's no co ... More >>
Watch Charlize Theron suffer!
Some would say Paris Hilton's best performance was telling Larry King that she's embraced the Bible instead of open bars, but Paris herself feels it's in the romantic comedy The Hottie and the Nottie. The Teflon socialite took her role in the film so seriously that she worked with the same acting c ... More >>
