Fifty Shades of Grey hasn’t even been released yet – it doesn’t come out until Valentine’s Day, 2015 – but already, the woman who wrote the screenplay says that Jamie Dornan, the actor playing Christian Grey, Is going to get an Oscar.
She’s talking about an Academy Award, not a weiner.
That’s according to an US Weekly article yesterday, quoting an interview Kelly Marcel gave a week or so ago to Reza Aslan in his Writer’s Room series.
Here’s her best quote: "Apparently Jamie is great at being soft and hard at the same time. Which is hard to do for an actor!"
I’m thinking she knew exactly what she was saying. How about you?
Meanwhile, check out the film’s trailer again, and see if you smell Oscar…
It’s only been a month-and-a-half or so since Jersey Shore’s JWoww pushed daughter Meilani into the world.
And already, she’s back on the red carpet, this time for the premiere of her new horror comedy, Jersey Shore Massacre. Check out the interview she gave to US Weekly – printed uncensored, it would need an X rating.
She’s not happy with the way, um, “stuff” is jiggling in her post-partum body. And she says some of Meilani’s delivery will be seen on the upcoming season of Snooki & JWoww, and while no one needs to see her, um, “lady parts,” we just might. Oh yeah, she, um, let’s say “greatly” hated being pregnant.
Her body might be shaping up. Maybe she should be working on her pie hole. Um, sorry, “mouth.”
The 43rd president of the United States – some know him as George W. Bush, others simply as W – took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. First, he tried to write a check, as getting a bucket of ice water dumped on one’s head isn’t very “presidential.”
Thank goodness his wife was on hand. Great job, former First Lady! And lucky for her the Secret Service was taking a coffee break.
To W’s credit, he challenged his predecessor – Bill Clinton, aka #42 – to take the challenge. W noted that August 19 was Bill’s birthday, and “my gift to Bill is a bucket of cold water.”
More details about what's going on surrounding the death of Robin Williams. His body was cremated the day after he died and his ashes were scattered in San Francisco Bay. His official death certificate doesn't list an immediate cause of death, It just says, "pending investigation." The coroner is still waiting for the results of toxicology tests to see if Robin Williams had any chemicals in his body when he died. The Emmys plan on saying goodbye to Robin Williams on Monday and will be doing a In Memoriam segment. Sara Bareilles will sing and Billy Crystal will speak. He was close friends with Robin Williams. We'll all me watching.

It's been a tough week for Elizabeth Vargas. Not only did she announce that she's checked into rehab for the second time to get treatment for her alcohol addiction, but now she's also getting a divorce! Elizabeth Vargas is married to "Walking In Memphis" singer Marc Cohn! They got married in 2002 and have two sons. Marc Cohn was the one who told his wife to get help. Now that it's the second time around, she might have just let the whole family down and he's had enough!
Is this marriage about to be over? Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are apparently on the outs! Even though they've tried to shut down the rumors that they are breaking up, I'm hearing they've had problems for a long time! They've been living a part for a while, they aren't getting along and Mariah Carey wants to end it and it has been in the works for months! Of course their reps have no comment! Hopefully they can work it out for the kids! I never got that marriage though!
Well this didn't last long! Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez were just spotted together hanging and making out! Well, after two months of fun they've already called it quits! They had a MASSIVE fight and Michelle Rodriguez wants to do her own thing! Zac Efron still wants to be with her! She must have strong will power that one!
Are Drake and Rihanna back on? That's how it looks! They hit up a nightclub together in NYC this week. They were there for two hours and left at 3 am and it was ten minutes apart from each other. The club confirms the whole thing. Drake and Rihanna were flirtatious and whispering in each other's ears. I say that means they're back together to me!
Speaking of back on, it also looks like J. Lo and Casper Smart are back together! They were spotted hanging out together just two months after calling it quits. They were in a car together, had the music on loud and were dancing and laughing together. After noticing photographers, J. Lo tried to hide, Casper Smart put the top up on the car and then they went back to her house. Maybe absence makes the heart grow fonder!
Is Julianne Hough headed back to the ballroom? She hasn't competed as a pro on Dancing with the Stars since season eight in 2009, but I'm hearing she might just return as a regular judge -for the upcoming 19th season. Nothing is official yet and it's unclear yet if Julianne Hough would replace someone or just be a fourth voice that would join Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioll. Len Goodman may be retiring! If Julianne Hough does end up judging, she has experience. She was a guest judge in seasons 17 and 18! I'd love to see it happen!
Taylor Swift just debuted her new single, "Shake It Off" along with the music video for it and already it has over 4 million YouTube views. But not everyone loves it! Rapper Earl Sweatshirt got on Twitter and called the video "inherently offensive and ultimately harmful." He admits to not even watching it but accused T Swift of "perpetuating stereotypes." He's not the only one to say this either. He tweeted, "I don't need to watch it to tell you that it's inherently offensive and ultimately harmful." Hopefully she didn't mind too much that as Taylor Swift celebrating the release of her new song by inviting loyal Taylor Swift fans from her livestream back to her apartment in NYC for a pizza party!
It's been months since Pharrell's famous Arbys hat debuted on the Grammys but it's still making waves! Getting Pharrell "Hat Person Of The Year Award and having Arbys buy it for $44,100 dollars wasn't enough. Now the hat is going to have it's own museum exhibit at the Newseum!! A spokesperson for Newseum said, "The stories visitors experience in the Newseum illustrate historic and contemporary moments as seen through the eyes of the media. Pharrell's hat is a great addition to the Newseum and will serve as a great example of the impact of social media today." It's the little hat that could!
This is crazy! The National Football League rakes in about $9 billion a year, but that doesn't mean it's made of money So how are they trying to make more money this year? How about by charging artists for the honor of playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show?! The League already doesn't pay its halftime performers, but it's got a new plan. I'm hearing the NFL's wish list has been narrowed down to Coldplay, Katy Perry and Rihanna and they've reached out to them to ask if they'd be willing to contribute some of their post-Super Bowl tour money to the League or to make "some other type of financial contribution!" I'm sure the artists didn't like hearing THAT offer, if you can even call it that!
To you or me, a $7 million dollar salary for a super model is amazing and we'd KILL for that money! Well, if you were a supermodel, you might feel differently. If you make seven million dollars, that doesn't get you to the top of Forbes' highest paid supermodel. It actually puts you at number three! Miranda Keer has the third slot and shares the title with Kate Moss and Kate Upton. It's Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima that are the two big names on the list. Adriana Lima came in second, making $8 million and Gisele Bundchen nabbed first place, making $47 million before taxes in the last year! That's five times more than what Adriana Lima makes! All that to model!
