ReelzChannel Celebrity Rundown
Attention celebrities: If you have revealing photos on your phone — delete them now. Mad Men's Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn are the latest celebrities to have their phones hacked (joining the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis). Over the weekend scandalous photos of both actresses were leaked online showing the two in skimpy outfits. Both actresses are denying that photos showing actual nudity are them. Hendricks' rep told TMZ that a topless shot is not Hendricks. TMZ is reporting that Munn is claiming the same about photos that show a woman completely naked. In both instances the faces of the women being photographed are not in frame.
Reviews of Lindsay Lohan's Saturday Night Live appearance are in and the general consensus is that Lilo should have stayed home. For many sketches Lohan was kept in the background and when she did have lines, she was painfully dependent on cue cards. EW.com was asking readers if Lohan was the worst host of the season (47% said yes) and on Twitter, Joan Rivers commented: "Lindsay Lohan was so bad on SNL that the judge is sending her back to rehab, but for acting lessons.” Someone else tweeted: "#SNL had Lindsay Lohan on mainly so NBC News would have fresh file footage next time she's arrested." Despite the bad reviews, Lilo's episode gave SNL its second-highest ratings of the year.
So what do you do with a hundred thousand dollars worth of wedding gifts after your marriage ends after 72 days? If you're Kim Kardashian you keep them but donate money to charity. In a letter sent to guests who attended her wedding, Kim said she is donating the cash amount of the gifts she received to the Dream Foundation. TMZ reports the total cash value of all gifts is estimated to be around $100K but Kim is cutting a check for twice that amount to the charity.
Over the weekend, Martin Sheen, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Bacon, and Chris Colfer were among the stars who performed a one-night benefit reading of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black's play 8, about the legal battle over California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8. Meanwhile on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, '80s sitcom star Kirk Cameron was blunt about his opposition to homosexuality, saying it is "unnatural and ultimately destructive." He also said he opposed gay marriage.
And in celebrity hair news, Willow Smith can no longer whip her hair back and forth now that she's buzzed it and dyed it green. Posted 03.05.12 by Chris
Dustin Lance Black didn't take long to set up his first directing job. After winning this past year's Best Original Screenplay Oscar for Milk, Black wooed the crowd with a heartfelt, tearjerking acceptance speech. And now, Variety reports that he's been given the reins to direct his own script for What's Wrong With Virginia, which will star Liam Neeson and Jennifer Connelly.
The movie tells the story of a sheriff, played by Neeson, who has had a long-standing love affair with Connelly's character, a younger mother described by as "charming but psychologically disturbed." Drama arises when the sheriff's daughter develops a relationship with Connelly's son.
Milk director Gus Van Sant is executive producing the movie, which begins production later this summer. Posted 05.18.09 by reelz
4:58PM Hey, Ryan here live in the press room at the Academy Awards. The show has yet to officially start, with a half hour of red carpet interviews left before the show begins, plenty of time to get your Oscar Bingo Cards ready.
5:39 With the red carpet portion of the show done, it's time to see what Hugh Jackman can do as host of the Academy Awards. Plenty of jokes about his home country, and the usual host opening number. He might not be a comedian, but I can't imagine Billy Crystal pulling off the dancing so well.
5:43 Now that Jackman's obligatory Wolverine plug is over , it's time to see an Award, starting with Actress in a Supporting Role. And the award goes to...Penelope Cruz for Vicky Christina Barcelona.
5:52 Time to award the writers. Dustin Lance Black wins for Original Screenplay for Milk with an emotional and politically-minded speech. The Oscar for Adapted Screenplay is next, with Simon Beaufoy's script winning for Slumdog Millionaire, in what could be the first of many Slumdog Oscars.
6:05 The fairly new catagory of Best Animated Feature Film is next, with three whole movies nominated: WALL-E, Bolt and Kung Fu Panda. And the winner, no surprise to anyone, is...Bolt. I'm kidding! Of course, it's WALL-E.
6:10 An early favorite for best speech of the night goes to Japan's Kunio Kato, winner for Animated Short Film, who thanked a variety of people including "Mr. Roboto." Cue the band with STYX! No? Oh, ok. Well, anyway, great speech, Kunio.
6:24 With 10 nominations for Slumdog Millionaire and 13 for Benjamin Button, the running tally for the two most nominated movies stands as 1 for Slumdog to 2 for Button after Button wins for both Achievement in Art Direction and Makeup.
6:25 Twilight sighting! I couldn't tell what was happening when Robert Pattinson was on stage due to all the high-pitched screaming in the press room.
6:30 Emotions still run high backstage for Dustin Lance Black. "Harvey gave me his story and it saved my life," he said. The same could be said for Penelope Cruz, however, she continued where she left off at the end of her acceptance speech, speaking mostly in Spanish. If she had said "The library is green" I definitely would have understood it, but I'm pretty sure she didn't. Wait, she spoke in English! Cruz mentions that she wondered about the "tone" of Vicky Christina Barcelona, but "never doubted the genius of Woody Allen."
6:34 Make that 2 to 2! Slumdog wins another, this time for Cinematography. Posted 02.22.09 by Ryan
