Please help me. I can’t with this image…I just can’t. What in the GOTdamnhell? “Rock of Ages” is going to be the BIGGEST steaming pile of crap based on this photo alone. (Thank you, W Magazine?)
I wish you all were here with me on the couch (sofa, divan, davenport…depending on your region) when I dry-heaved and screamed in horror when this image popped up on my laptop screen. The scary Silly Putty abs, the Sharped-on tattoos, those poor girls averting their eyes from the camera so as not to be recognized…and Tommy Girl, giving his best guy eye-linered f*ck me face? STOP IT!!!
Help. Me….please. I can’t take it anymore. I need an IV of bleach for 24 hours at the very least.
As the year continues to fly by faster than I want it to, get ready to see more big stars promoting their Oscar bait movies. Leonardo DiCaprio covers GQ, minus polar bear this time, and talks with his ‘J. Edgar’ director Clint Eastwood about their influences and careers. While Leo has gone on to do many serious and award nominated movies like ‘The Departed’ and ‘Inception’, he is still of course known for his role in ‘Titanic‘ but don’t think that he wants to do another big budget epic.
“Throughout my career, I never knew which movies of mine made money and which didn’t. When Titanic came out, people would say, ‘Do you realize what a success this is?’ And I’d say, ‘Yeah, yeah, it’s a hit.’ The [money] stuff never mattered to me until I was into my thirties and got interested in producing, and people would show me charts explaining what finances a movie, what you’ll make from foreign, what you’ll make from domestic, what you need to make an R-rated film that’s a comedy versus a drama. But even now I say that unless you want to prove that you can carry a film with your name, continuously trying to achieve box-office success is a dead end.”

The lovely Michelle Williams does her best Marilyn for Vogue. Shot by legendary photographer, Annie Leibovitz, Williams shows off both the vulnerable and sexy sides of Marilyn Monroe, whom she portrays in the upcoming film, ‘My Week With Marilyn’.
Williams spent six months preparing for the role by immersing herself with all things Marilyn. Watching her movies, reading biographies and diaries and she even learned how to walk like her with the help of a choreographer.
“I’d go to bed every night with a stack of books next to me,” she recalls. “And I’d fall asleep to movies of her. It was like when you were a kid and you’d put a book under your pillow hoping you’d get it by osmosis.” To get Monroe’s famous curves, the actress did gain weight but as she says, “it went right to my face.”
Extra padding helped, but I think all her work paid off.
Because he’s been everywhere but in the recording studio (ahem) lately, Justin Timberlake pairs up with ‘In Time’ co-star Amanda Seyfried for Wagazine. Don’t they make a cute political pair? Timberlake and Seyfried both wear Calvin Klein on the cover, shot by Michael Thompson.
In the interview with Lynn Hirschberg, it’s revealed that Timberlake got his part in last year’s ‘The Social Network’ because director David Fincher liked his performances on Saturday Night Live. I’m going to need to see the receipts for that one. I kind of like the “Jackie and John” thing they have going on with the shoot. If he doesn’t FINALLY make another album, he could always run for office.
Gulp. Umm…wow. I want to thank W Magazine for bringing out the pretty in Kristen Stewart. I mean, LOOK at her. Usually we see SourPuss hiding behind one hand, while she’s flipping us off with other.
Here’s a snippet of what The Sullen One had to say in her interview with Lynn Hirschberg:
Lynn Hirschberg: Everyone knows you as Bella Swan, the heroine of the Twilight series, whose penultimate installment, Breaking Dawn Part 1, premieres on November 18. What audiences may not know is that you’ve been acting since you were a child. How did you get your start?
Did you do any commercials, or did you go straight into films? I did two commercials, one for Porsche, but I was definitely not the type of child one would cast in a commercial or any TV that you’d typically go out for as a young kid. I wasn’t the type of kid who would be in stuff that kids watch. I wasn’t cutesy.
In 1999 David Fincher cast you as Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room. He likes to do dozens of takes for each scene. Was that difficult, as a child? I didn’t realize that 80 takes wasn’t normal. But it’s funny: Some of my proudest moments from film sets are in Panic Room. My character had seizures. Just being able to say, I was 10 years old and I broke all the blood vessels in my eye on that take, is cool. It was fun.
You had a tomboy quality, which was unusual. I have brothers, and that so-called boyish quality was something that I was deathly self-conscious about when I was younger. I was, like, No, I’m a girl. Actually, I’m still embarrassed to say that.
But it sets you apart from other young actresses. And it made you more interesting. I don’t really know what to say. I just knew I wanted to work. And I did. I was working when I read the script for Twilight. I read the script before I read the book. I actually did the audition before reading the book, which was kind of crazy. Obviously, I tore all four books apart over the course of three years, but initially I had no idea that Twilight was such a big deal.
Did you have a particular interest in vampires? All young girls like vampires. I fucking love me a vampire [Laughs]. I was 17 when I read Twilight, and at the time it was so perfect for me. The script was about young kids who think they can handle stuff that they just can’t. And they’re going to do it anyway. Because, why not? Just torture yourself. I relate to that. Vampires are a little dangerous—and we girls like to test ourselves.
