Fifty Shades of Grey hasn’t even been released yet – it doesn’t come out until Valentine’s Day, 2015 – but already, the woman who wrote the screenplay says that Jamie Dornan, the actor playing Christian Grey, Is going to get an Oscar.
She’s talking about an Academy Award, not a weiner.
That’s according to an US Weekly article yesterday, quoting an interview Kelly Marcel gave a week or so ago to Reza Aslan in his Writer’s Room series.
Here’s her best quote: "Apparently Jamie is great at being soft and hard at the same time. Which is hard to do for an actor!"
I’m thinking she knew exactly what she was saying. How about you?
Meanwhile, check out the film’s trailer again, and see if you smell Oscar…
It’s only been a month-and-a-half or so since Jersey Shore’s JWoww pushed daughter Meilani into the world.
And already, she’s back on the red carpet, this time for the premiere of her new horror comedy, Jersey Shore Massacre. Check out the interview she gave to US Weekly – printed uncensored, it would need an X rating.
She’s not happy with the way, um, “stuff” is jiggling in her post-partum body. And she says some of Meilani’s delivery will be seen on the upcoming season of Snooki & JWoww, and while no one needs to see her, um, “lady parts,” we just might. Oh yeah, she, um, let’s say “greatly” hated being pregnant.
Her body might be shaping up. Maybe she should be working on her pie hole. Um, sorry, “mouth.”
The 43rd president of the United States – some know him as George W. Bush, others simply as W – took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. First, he tried to write a check, as getting a bucket of ice water dumped on one’s head isn’t very “presidential.”
Thank goodness his wife was on hand. Great job, former First Lady! And lucky for her the Secret Service was taking a coffee break.
To W’s credit, he challenged his predecessor – Bill Clinton, aka #42 – to take the challenge. W noted that August 19 was Bill’s birthday, and “my gift to Bill is a bucket of cold water.”
If you love your dog so much that you want it to be involved in your search for a date, there are websites for that. Sites such as PetsDating.com and YouMustLoveDogsDating.com are connecting dog lovers with one another. Many of the sites recommend users bring their dogs on their first dates as a kind of ice breaker, and of course to see if there's chemistry between the pooches. Michal Strahilevitz, a professor of marketing says, "Having a theme that is...about one's passion makes it feel like you are looking for a needle in a smaller and far more relevant and appealing haystack." Still, not all agree it's a good idea, dating expert Trish McDermott says, "To squeeze doggie behavior under the first date microscope...is just another way to uncover the fatal flaw of an otherwise potential romance."
