Rooney Mara Axed Reverse Cowgirl in ‘Side Effects’

Channing and RooneyWe often hear about actresses who are willing to do nudity that is “tasteful,” but we rarely hear what they actually won’t do.

In a feature for Interview Magazine, Rooney Mara says she draws the line at reverse cowgirl.

On a Side Effects sex scene with Channing Tatum, Mara explains that she “put her foot down”  when director Steven Soderbergh, who was also conducting the interview, asked her to try the position.

If the character should be nude in the scene and it makes sense and I trust the person making the film – and I regret my decision to trust you now that I know you more – then I don’t see a problem with it.

I certainly don’t want to be involved in anything that is gratuitous, but I don’t think the human body is something to be ashamed of.  Continue reading “Rooney Mara Axed Reverse Cowgirl in ‘Side Effects’”

Did Emma Watson Walk Off The Set Of Seth Rogen’s ‘The End Of The World?’

No, Emma Watson didn’t walk off the set of the upcoming film The End Of The World written by Seth Rogen and starring him, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, and Michael Cera…

But SOMEBODY did. And I need help cracking the mystery of the primadonna actress. James Franco was conducting an interview with Mila Kunis when he told her:

“So a funny thing happened on this movie I’m doing down here in New Orleans that made me think of you. The movie is a comedy, but it’s kind of an outrageous one, and this actress – I won’t say who, but she had a smaller role in the film — walked off the movie in the middle of a scene.” Continue reading “Did Emma Watson Walk Off The Set Of Seth Rogen’s ‘The End Of The World?’”

Mila Kunis For Interview Magazine, August 2012

Let me just say that if you’re taking, style, photography and writing standards into account, Interview Magazine has to be one of the most quality publications in existence.

Their latest piece is James Franco interviewing his Date Night and Oz: The Great And Powerful co-star Mila Kunis. In some parts (that I didn’t include) you end up learning more about James Franco than Mila Kunis, but it’s a win win.

Being herself: I don’t really have a perception issue. I’ve been pretty good about being who I am in the public’s eye. I don’t necessarily put on an act when I go on Jay Leno or dress differently in public than I do in private. I’d like to think I’m the same person, more or less.

Low-key lifestyle: I don’t live lavishly, so it’s not like I have 20 assistants and travel privately and shop every day. I actually live a very mediocre lifestyle.  Continue reading “Mila Kunis For Interview Magazine, August 2012”

Charlize Theron And Kristen Stewart For Interview, June/July 2012

Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron appear in the latest issue of Interview Magazine for Snow White And The Huntsman and as usual, the photos are spectacular but the individual sit-downs with the two actresses are even better.

Even after picking and choosing answers, I’ve included less than half of the questions.

Elvis Mitchell does a brilliant job of exploring their careers and getting a very fluid and intelligent perspective into their craft and personal lives…

MITCHELL: When was the first time you remember working with a woman who you instantly connected with?
STEWART: Well, Jodie [Foster, in Panic Room]. But actually, the first person who hired me for a movie was a woman: Rose Troche, who directed The Safety of Objects [2001].  Continue reading “Charlize Theron And Kristen Stewart For Interview, June/July 2012”

Scarlett Johansson For Interview Magazine, Indecisive Woman Of The Year

Scarlett Johansson sat down with Arianna Huffington in the latest issue of Interview Magazine  where she took purposefully scandalous photos for public viewing and talked about privacy, Obama and being confused about Occupy Wall Street.

She thinks social media tools are “unprecedented” and “amazing” but reveals that there’s nothing she’d rather do less “than have to continuously share details of my everyday life.” Also, she’d rather go to the White House Correspondents’ dinner than any awards show.

I’ve got to agree with Evil Beet on this one, I’m on the fence constantly about Scarlett Johansson, and she can’t seem to make up her mind either, about anything.
