Evan Rachel Wood was on the scene at the Tribeca Film Festival for the premiere of Woody Allen’s latest comedy,Whatever Works. She co-stars as the very young wife of the curmudgeonly Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm).
You can also catch her playing a heroic teen leading a fight to save her planet from evil aliens in the 3-D animated Battle for Terra. Now, the big question is whether or not Evan will deliver on her original promise to star in the Broadway version of Spider-Man, directed by Julie Taymor.
What Evan said to us last year.
“I looked at myself and went, ‘Duh. Mary Jane.’ And so I sent a picture of myself to Julie Taymor, and I guess she agreed because I’m playing the part. I’m really excited about getting the chance to sing and also maybe hang from tall buildings.”…Read more…
Matthew McConaughey manages to keep his shirt on for most of Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. But, not to worry, he hasn’t lost that sexy six-pack that’s almost always on display for the paparazzi.
Matthew is back in a familiar role as a player suddenly faced with all the women he rejected over the years. But, he swears, he’s just misunderstood. And his female fans are just going to have to deal with his new role as a proud dad to his young son with girlfriend Camila Alves.
He loves his exes.
“I would get a lot more hugs than my character in this movie. A lot of his girlfriends aren’t that happy with him. But I still have a good relationship with my past girlfriends. Some of them are just acquaintances. Some of them are still women that I talk to weekly. And they’ve all gone on to be happy and have good men in their lives. A lot of them have children, too.”…Read more…
As the world copes with a mounting financial crisis fed by corporate corruption, the legendary financial predator who makes Bernie Madoff pale by comparison is returning to the scene of his crime. Michael Douglas, who won an Oscar for his searing portrayal of Gordon Gekko, is reprising his role in Wall Street 2, once again helmed by Oliver Stone.
You can also catch him as Uncle Wayne, a part that comes close to spoofing his real-life image as a Hollywood playboy, in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.
The legend endures.
“Everybody is fascinated with Gordon even though he was a villain. That’s what was so weird. I kept getting a run of drunken investment bankers coming up to me at bars saying, ‘You’re the man. You’re the man. You’re the reason I got involved in this business.’ And I’m going, ‘Whoa, but I’m the bad guy, right?’ And they were like, ‘No, no!’ So there you go. Greed is good.”…Read more…
Liev Schreiber may be best known as a serious dramatic actor, but that didn’t stop him from co-starring with Hugh Jackman in the big-screen comic action flick X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
That’s not to say Schreiber didn’t take his role as the fierce Sabretooth seriously. He bared fangs and claws on-set, but when he got home to Naomi Watts and their two sons, he was just a regular dad.
Why he’s always been a fan.
“When I was a kid I thought it was a big departure from other comic books. Everything before Wolverine was very clean cut — sort of men in tights jumping over tall buildings. Wolverine was the first really successful antihero. I think that idea of the outsider, the rebel, the freak is very appealing to adolescent boys.”…Read more…
It’s about time Jennifer Garner did a romantic comedy after kicking butt in The Kingdom and showing her serious side in the indie hit Juno. In Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Jennifer goes for laughs with co-star Matthew McConaughey.
Off-screen, Jennifer has her hands full with baby number two. But she’s getting lots of help from daddy Ben Affleck.
Guys and the “R” word.
“Guys are definitely romantic when they feel safe — not like they are supposed to be romantic — and they can do it because they want to. Sometimes you have to trick them into it by playing dead. All those special days like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, anniversaries, and birthdays are just there to give a guy a little kick in the pants and make him do something romantic.”…Read more…
