Hollywood actress Suzanne Vale is addicted to different drugs. After a stint in rehab and trying to get her life back on track. Whilst having to live with her mother to film a new movie.
Over the weekend the very famous white dress worn by Marilyn Monroe was auctioned and was bought for a very cool £2.8m ($4.6m). Possibly one of the most well known dresses in film history! The image of Monroe getting the gust of wind from the subway and blowing her dress up has to be one of the most well known as well.
An unreal amount of money considering it was bought for just $200 dollars and for it to make so much money, just shows how much of a pull Monroe still is in the Hollywood world. I don’t imagine this is something that will ever happen with dresses or any clothes from recent films.
The latest news about the Hollywood remake of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” are that Daniel Craig has been cast in the lead role as Mikael Blomkvist. This comes as very exciting news as with another Bond film looking very unlikely any new role for Daniel is good news for me. I have been such a big fan of his for a few years now.
David Fincher has signed on to direct the trilogy of films. My task now is to read all of the books, which I have had for months now, actually I have owned The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for a few years now since it’s release but have not read it all. After reading that book, I shall definitely watch the Swedish version before this film comes out. At least I have a year and a half before this film is due for release.
Anyone have any opinions on the book, first film and/or this remake? Especially the casting of Daniel Craig?
I shall be posting more in relation to this film/book franchise as I get into reading them.
After the recent allegations that the most recent best actress Oscar winner Sandra Bullock’s husband Jesse James cheated on her. It got me thinking about the previous best actress winners and there relationships especially after Kate Winslet announcing her spilt from husband Sam Mendes earlier this week. Hilary Swank split from Chad Lowe not too long after she picked up her second best actress statue. So can men really not handle it if there wife is more successful than them or is it all just a coincidence?
The old-fashioned values and usual relationship rules are that the man is classed as the main earner and “looks” after his wife and children. But in Hollywood that is not often the case when a woman can easily be more successful than her husband. So lets venture down the road of successful actresses and have a comparison with relationships she has had, especially before and even after winning the highest accolade of an Oscar.
Nancy Meyers is an American film director, producer and screenwriter. Her newest movie “It’s Complicated” starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin is due for release tomorrow in the UK, therefore I decided to make a blog celebrating what Nancy has done so far in the movies . . . mainly for women as that is the target audience of her movies. Making movies that other people probably wouldn’t with older actors in love stories (Somethings Gotta Give) and breaking the typical Hollywood mould, which I think is just brilliant. She is definitely one of Hollywood’s most powerful women.
She’s directed “It’s Complicated” (2009), “The Holiday” (2006), “Something’s Gotta Give” (2003), “What Women Want” (2000) and “The Parent Trap” (1998).
She’s written “It’s Complicted” (2009), “The Holiday” (2006), “Something’s Gotta Give” (2003), “The Parent Trap” (1998), “Father of the Bride Park II” (1995), “I Love Trouble” (1994), “Once Upon a Crime” (1992), “Father of the Bride” (1991), “Baby Boom” (1987) and “Private Benjamin” (1980).
She has also produced most of the movies she has written and directed.
