Amanda Seyfried has covered quite a few film genres since starting her motion picture career playing a mouse (DUH) in Mean Girls. The 27-year-old actress has appeared in two beloved musicals (Mamma Mia & Les Miserables), starred in a fairytale adaptation (Red Riding Hood), romance dramas (Dear John) and futuristic thrillers (In Time). Now she’s dabbling in the world of porn. The first trailer for her turn as the infamous porn star Linda Lovelace has debuted.
Lovelace first premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It’s scheduled to hit theaters in limited release on August 9. The biographical film will cover the Deep Throat actress’ life from when she was 20 to 32-years-old. Watch as Linda Boreman becomes the symbol of sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism in the 70s and later transforms into an outspoken anti-porn activist a decade after that film made her a star.
Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Lovelace boasts an impressive cast including Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, James Franco, Debi Mazar, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Chloe Sevigny, Sharon Stone, and Juno Temple. Sarah Jessica Parker was also supposed to be in the film, but her part was cut out during the final editing process. Check out the trailer below.
Rodham isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until the 2016 Presidential Election, but that isn’t stopping the film’s director from giving interviews about it and spilling some major casting details. James Ponsoldt chatted with The Independent about which four ladies he has his eyes on to play a young Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“Regardless of people’s political affiliation or how they feel about Hillary Clinton, you don’t find people who question the quality of her intelligence or her drive,” Ponsoldt told The Independent. “I want a wonderful actress who could embody that.”
The biopic will focus on Clinton’s time as a House Judiciary Committee lawyer in her twenties. She served as a counsel to the committee during the Watergate scandal. There are rumors that Kim Young II’s script includes many racy scenes. When the scribe was asked about it, he coyly replied, “It’s an evolving process so I don’t know. She was an attractive 26-year-old with an amazing future. And that’s our thematic focus.” I’m not sure if the world is ready for a 50 Shades of Hillary type of flick. Don’t you agree?
Two of the four supposed frontrunners for the political role of a lifetime are Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon. If I had to chose between these two ladies, I’d cast my vote for Witherspoon. Her role as Tracy Flick in the 1999 film Election is exactly what I’d picture a young Clinton to be. Find out the other two ladies below.
When it comes to female sexuality, there’s probably no better experts than the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Have you seen those tall beyotches strut their stuff on the glittered runway of the brand’s annual fashion show? I admit, as a gay man, I probably have an unhealthy fascination with all things VS-related. When you add an annual list to the mix, you know I’m all over it.
Watch as Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss, Erin Heatherton, Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio reveal the winners of Victoria’s Secret 8th annual list of sexiest celebrities in Hollywood. A few of the sexy honorees include Amanda Seyfried (Sexiest Hair), Blake Lively (Sexiest Legs), Kerry Washington (Sexiest Lips) and Jennifer Lawrence (Sexiest Sense of Humor) to name a few. Check out all the winners below.
She may be the Most Hated Hollywood Celebrity according to Star magazine, but over at People they love her. The publication crowned Gwyneth Paltrow the Most Beautiful Woman in 2013. She takes over the reigns from her BFF Beyoncé who graced their annual Most Beautiful In The World issue last year.
“Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup. That’s what [my children are] used to,” she tells People. Of her husband Chris Martin she says, “He’ll make a joke about it. If I’ve gotten fully dressed up, he’ll be like, ‘Oh, wow! You’re Gwyneth Paltrow!’ Because he’s used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair.”
See who else joins the 40-year-old actress on People’s list below. Overall, I agree with all their choices. They’re all gorgeous for their respective ages.
Folk music is all the rage these days. Mumford & Sons snagged the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Phillip Phillips‘ “Home” was the anthem for the Olympics and practically every product and movie out there. And don’t forget The Lumineers, whose “Ho Hey” became a sleeper hit on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. It’s no wonder that one of Hollywood’s hottest actresses agreed to appear in a music video for folk duo, The Milk Carton Kids.
The musical act was singled out by TIME magazine as the best act at last year’s South by Southwest music festival. They are comprised of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan from Los Angeles. I really like them. They give me a modern day Simon & Garfunkel-type vibe.
In the Julian T. Pinder-directed clip, the Les Miserables star steps into a car and drives for the duration of the track. “Honey, Honey” is the third clip released by The Milk Carton Kids featuring a person listening to music while driving in a car. The single shot is meant to represent people from all walks of life, including famous movie stars. Check out “Honey, Honey” featuring Amanda Seyfried below, along with the other two clips- “Snake Eyes” and “The Ash and Clay.”
“We thought it was interesting to show what listening to music looks like. Which it turns out, if you’re driving in a car, is nothing. You’re having this very personal, emotional, visceral experience but if someone took a video of you for those three minutes it couldn’t look like more of the opposite. It looks like nothing’s happening when really everything in the world is happening at that moment.” – Joe Ryan
As promised, after The Oscars last night Jimmy Kimmel debuted his Movie: The Movie: 2V trailer and in case you missed it, we’ve got it for you to check out below. The hilarious movie parody video features 21 celebrities and tells the epic story of a world threatened by sexy vampires, sexy zombies, sexy mummies, and sexy leprechauns.
The cast includes: Rachel Weisz, Armie Hammer, Topher Grace, Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Gerard Butler, Bryan Cranston, John Krasinski, Oprah Winfrey, Bradley Cooper, Kerry Washington, Guillermo Rodriguez, Jason Schwartzman, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Bruno Mars, Amanda Seyfried, Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Wolf Blitzer, and even Matt Damon.
Kimmel plays the man who leads the charge of people who fight to stop the Sexpocalypse. Some of my favorite moments include when Kimmel calls Oprah (who plays the president) and she hangs up on him, when Matt Damon is told to pretend he’s eating a big sandwich but they really just want him to look like he’s giving head, and when Kimmel shouts, “Release the Tatum!” and a giant Channing Tatum comes out that fights the sexy monsters by thrusting from his manhood. Watch the epic and hilarious video below.
Last year, Jimmy Kimmel got a countless number of celebrities to participate in an elaborate movie trailer spoof he called Movie: The Movie. This year, he’s doing it again and on Oscar Night, he’ll debut the trailer for Movie The Movie : 2V
A preview for this trailer came out today, starring Jimmy Kimmel (of course), Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Amanda Seyfried, Bruno Mars, Rachel Weisz and Bradley Cooper. As the trailer begins, Chastain says to Kimmel, “Sir, we’re under attack!” Kimmel responds, “By who?” Chastain responds, “Everything.” LOL.
My favorite part of the preview video is Bradley Cooper getting attacked by a hot, half-shirtless male zombie. He screams and cries in panic, “They’re just too sexy!!” as a small child clings onto his back. Watch the video video below.
Nine years after its release, Mean Girls is as popular as ever. Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were even bonding and trying to quiz each other on the popular teen comedy during the American Idol auditions. It’s probably the one thing the two divas have and will ever agree on. How I missed this awesome bit of news during the Screen Actors Guild Awards is appalling? Shame on me. Thankfully, I stumbled on it and can share it with you now.
With 30 Rock signing off the air this Thursday, Tina Fey needs a new project to keep her occupied. The SNL vet told E! News that a musical version of Mean Girls could “maybe” be on the way. She revealed, “I’m trying to develop it actually with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock. And I think Paramount’s on board, yeah.” Cue slow clap.
If it does come to fruition, I know one actress who might want to reprise her role. Amanda Seyfried has already appeared in two big budget musicals- Mamma Mia and Les Miserables. Plus, the 27-year-old actress recently described the movie as her “best work” in an interview with IndieWire. Perhaps Karen and her ESPN knew all along that a musical was in the works ;)
Personally, I think a musical adaption is a great idea. Let’s face it, Tina Fey isn’t going to get involved with a project unless she thinks it’s hilarious. Check out a few of my favorite clips from the classic teen flick below.
