Pedro Pascal has talked in great lengths about the outcome of his character’s epic fight against the Mountain on Game of Thrones in the name of Tyrion Lannister and his dead sister, Elia Martell.

To Access Hollywood, on identifying and falling in love with Prince Oberyn “The Viper” Martell:

I found him very delicious. I also found him very, very honorable and very progressive and just an all-around badass, not because he’s a great fighter and because he likes to f*ck everything that moves, but because he has morals that I identify with. So it was always very hard for me to kind of like, detach myself from my own heartbreak that the character goes out the way that he goes out.

Pascal said in that same interview that he wouldn’t hesitate to star in a sort of Red Viper origin series or movie, as unlikely as that is.  Continue reading “Prince Oberyn Weighs in on that Shocking Trial-By-Combat”

Colin Farrell Had a Telephone Romance With Elizabeth Taylor

Colin Farrell Elizabeth Taylor ellen Now I will tell you the unexpected tale of how an elder Elizabeth Taylor befriended hunky 30-something Colin Farrell

Taylor sent an orchid to Farrell after she found out he was in the hospital welcoming his son Henry into the world. (She was there having a coronary stent put in.)

Shortly after, the began talking on the phone late at night. Here’s a quote from Vanity Fair, explaining their relationship and why he was asked to speak at her funeral in 2011:

The pair eventually met in person and began exchanging phone calls, especially late-night ones that fit nicely into their insomniac schedules. “She wasn’t much of a sleeper at night like I’m not, so at two o’clock in the morning I’d call her. . .and the nurse would answer the phone. I’d say, ‘Is she awake?’ I’d be on the phone and I’d hear, ‘Hello?’ And I’d go how’s it going and we’d talk for a half an hour an hour into the wee hours. Really cool.’”  Continue reading “Colin Farrell Had a Telephone Romance With Elizabeth Taylor”

A [Very] Brief History of Obama Selfies

Obama funeral selfieEven though people have been twerking and taking selfies since before the invention MTV and polaroid cameras, 2013 was the year we gave these occurrences a title that even your most out-of-touch relative might causally drop into a sentence.

Just the other day Obama was called out for taking a “selfie,” (a “self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone” according to Wiki), at a funeral.

Not just a funeral, but the funeral of Africa’s most beloved icon of peace, equality and freedom: Nelson Mandela.

The Obamas are as American as a family can get, one that often partakes in selfie-taking. For instance, here is one of Michelle with her and Barack’s Portuguese Water Dog Bo…  Continue reading “A [Very] Brief History of Obama Selfies”

Alec Baldwin FURIOUS at Daily Mail Writer, Deletes Twitter

Alec Baldwin wife funeralThe Daily Mail wrote an entire article on Alec Baldwin’s wife Hilaria updating her Twitter while she was at James Gandolfini’s funeral and Alec is MAD. Maybe madder than the time the flight attendants told him to stop playing Words With Friends on his phone or the time he called his daughter on the phone and called her a pig.

Baldwin was so enraged by the apparently untrue story about his wife using her phone during a funeral, he deleted his Twitter. But not before typing up a few slightly homo-centric tweets about the writer, George Stark, who he called a “toxic little queen,” and a “lying little bitch.”

Another favorite: “If put my foot up your f*cking ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.”

No idea why Hilaria Thomas wouldn’t want to pay attention to him or Gandolfini’s funeral. It’s not like social media isn’t her only escape now that she’s been knocked up by such a delightful guy.  Continue reading “Alec Baldwin FURIOUS at Daily Mail Writer, Deletes Twitter”

Angelina Jolie Chose The ‘World War Z’ Premiere Over Her Aunt’s Funeral

Angelina Jolie World War Z premiereBrad Pitt washed his hair for last night’s World War Z premiere in London, maybe because his wife missed the funeral of her mother’s younger sister, Debbie Martin, to be there.

I’m not going to utter a single bad word about the woman who underwent a double mastectomy and sweeps refugee orphans off their feet like a humble superhero with shiny apple-waxed legs. Some might say that Angelina Jolie‘s alter-ego, the woman with no friends who fingerpaints with blood on other people’s husband’s nutsacks, needs to get her priorities straight. But not me.

Maybe her aunt was one of those “live in the moment” people who told her in advance to only attend her funeral if she didn’t have some sort of zombie movie event to attend. Maybe Angie prefers to grieve in her own way. Maybe she already said goodbye at a special one-on-one rich person pre-funeral.  Continue reading “Angelina Jolie Chose The ‘World War Z’ Premiere Over Her Aunt’s Funeral”

Coverage Of Whitney’s Star-Studded Funeral

By now you’ve surely heard of Whitney Houston’s three and a half hour funeral procession (or “Home Going” ceremony) yesterday in New Jersey. A plethora of friends, family and admirers came to mourn at the televised event.

Stars included Oprah, Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder and even Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner who spoke beautifully on Houston’s perfectionist insecurity: “It was the burden that made her great and the part that caused her to stumble in the end.” Continue reading “Coverage Of Whitney’s Star-Studded Funeral”
