Amanda Seyfried thinks people are ''rolling their eyes'' at her.

The 31-year-old actress believes the public look at her with disdain just because of her job as an actress, as well as her celebrity status.

Speaking to Stylist magazine, the golden-haired beauty said: ''As an actor, I know people are probably rolling their eyes [at me]. A lot of people are like, 'F**k these celebrities, what do they know?'''

Love The Coopers (aka Christmas With The Coopers) Review

Very Good

This may look like it's going to be a zany Christmas romp, but it's really a warm exploration of family connections, essentially an American take on Love Actually's multi-strand comedy-drama. At least it has an unusually strong cast and moments of hilarity scattered throughout the story. And while it's never very deep, the themes are strongly resonant.

The Cooper family is gathering for what Charlotte (Diane Keaton) hopes will be one last perfect Christmas together. She knows that her 40-year marriage to Sam (John Goodman) is on the brink, but is ignoring that to plan a massive dinner. Their son Hank (Ed Helms) is stinging from divorce and unemployment, while daughter Eleanor (Olivia Wilde) has picked up a hunky soldier (Jake Lacy) in the airport and asks him to pose as her boyfriend so her family will stop asking about her love life. Meanwhile, Charlotte's father Bucky (Alan Arkin) is trying to cheer up his favourite waitress (Amanda Seyfried), and Charlotte's sister Emma (Marisa Tomei) is delayed when a cop (Anthony Mackie) arrests her for shoplifting.

Narrated with wry joviality by Steve Martin, the interwoven stories are fairly simplistic, but each touches a raw nerve. And the above-average cast brings out the underlying themes without overplaying their scenes. Keaton and Goodman add subtle shades to the slightly undemanding central roles, while Arkin finds a couple of new textures to his usual twinkly grandad persona. Helms and Wilde strike the right balance in their intriguingly unlikeable roles, while Tomei gets the most complex character as a woman who feels like she's merely watched her life drift along. By contrast, the outsiders played by Seyfried, Lacy and Mackie are much less defined, but each actor brings just enough magnetic energy. The most wasted performer is June Squibb, as a ditzy old aunt who's little more than the requisite gross-out relative.

While We're Young Trailer


Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts) are a middle-aged married couple struggling to keep up with their quickly ageing bodies and still feeling like they're in their twenties. They're tired of pretending to be grown up and the thought of having children becomes an evermore difficult decision. Filmmaker Josh soon meets a 25-year-old couple named Darby (Amanda Seyfried) and Jamie (Adam Driver); a couple that still have their whole lives ahead of them and bathe Josh and Cornelia in a comforting wave of nostalgia. Cornelia has reservations about spending their time with people so much younger than them, but it soon becomes clear that their presence has given Josh a new lease of life and made them realise that they don't have act the age they're expected to act, and they are free to let go to; that is, at least, until Josh is diagnosed with arthritis.

Ok, Seth Macfarlane, You've Had Your Fun, Now Where Are We With "Ted 2"?


Seth Macfarlane Mila Kunis Amanda Seyfried

Seth Macfarlane really wants to be a movie star. And we get it, we really do, but that isn’t enough to justify the existence of A Million Ways to Die in the West. Critics are pegging Macfarlane’s latest as “astonishingly lazy” (TIME Magazine) and “altogether wrongheaded” (Film School Rejects) and its overall 34% score on Rotten Tomatoes means that this one is easily skippable.

Seth Macfarlane
Seth Macfarlane's latest wasn't worth the hype.

The only hope Macfarlane has of redeeming himself as a writer and, to an extent, as a director, is for his other project, Ted 2, to be a stellar success. So where are we with that one?

Calm Down! Tina Fey Crushes 'Mean Girls' Sequel Rumours, But Reveals A Musical Version


Tina Fey Rachel McAdams Lindsay Lohan Lacey Chabert Amanda Seyfried

Tina Fey has put a stop to all the Mean Girls sequel rumours that have been circulating lately, saying that a follow-up to the oft-quoted 2004 teen hit is out of the question. Fans are largely split between two camps: those who would love to see a sequel with Lindsay Lohan and the original crew, and those who think another film would be laboured, unnecessary and run the risk of damaging the appeal of its predecessor.

Tina Fey
Tina Fey Has Shot Down Rumours Of A 'Mean Girls' Sequel.

Fey and Lohan appeared on Jimmy Fallon's first episode of The Tonight Show last month where they addressed the calls for more Means Girls action. The 30 Rock star said that whilst there was an argument for temporarily reuniting the cast - 19th April will mark the film's 10 year anniversary - there was little chance that any plans would be made for another film.

What Should Cinema-Goers See This Weekend - Sci-Fi Or Smut? Elysium Or Lovelace?


Matt Damon Jennifer Aniston Amanda Seyfried

As the rain descends upon Britain – those fleeting weeks of sun a distant memory – spending the evening at the cinema with an over-priced box of popcorn and a drink that’ll go flat within seconds is a far better prospect than sitting in some park trying to cook a burger on a £2 portable BBQ.

Amanda Seyfried Makes Bold Reveals In Cover Story For Elle


Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfried is hitting the campaign trail for her upcoming movie Lovelace, and it’s only natural that her interviews these days would be on the riskier side. The 27-year-old actress lends her sultry looks to the cover of Elle magazine this month and, clad in a glittering red bodysuit, she gives up some sizzling details about her personal life to match. Seyfried talks about everything, from her desire to shake up the industry with her latest role (porn star Linda Lovelace marks a departure from previous teeny bopper characters), to her views on relationships and sexual attraction – namely, that the former can’t survive without the latter.

Amanda Seyfried, Epic Premiere
Seyfried is using the chance to reveal some of her own romantic history.

"Everybody I've dated I've been sexually attracted to immediately,” Seyfried begins. ”Sparks don't grow—your vagina doesn't become more inclined to wanting someone just because you're around them."

Lovelace Trailer


Linda Lovelace was a hugely successful pornographic actress who hit global stardom with her 1972 hardcore film 'Deep Throat'. Although apparently happy, feisty and at ease on the surface, she suffered severe abuse and violence at the hands of her husband and manager Chuck Traynor who forced her into the sex industry at gunpoint; a stark contrast to her previous life, being well-known by her friends for keeping all her previous boyfriends at a good distance. While she apparently seemed to enjoy the highlife of national and international stardom, she made attempts to quit pornography to the anger of Traynor, who did everything he could to frighten her into submission. A vulnerable woman who spent her life being used, and who would go on to be a key figure in later anti-pornography movements.

First Trailer For Amanda Seyfried's Linda Lovelace Biopic Raises Expectations


Amanda Seyfried Sharon Stone Adam Brody Chris Noth Juno Temple James Franco

Anticipation mounted, as the first trailer for Lovelace – the Deep Throat star’s biopic, starring Amanda Seyfried, was released yesterday. The film follows the story of Lovelace’s entry into the porn industry and the reasons behind it, as well as her eventual escape from the business and her abusive husband. It tracks the journey from her humble beginnings in the Bronx and her eventual notoriety, as well as the controversy, surrounding her life and career. Lovelace died in a carcrash 2002, after several decades of advocating against the porn industry.

Amanda Seyfried, Epic Premiere
Seyfried will face the challenging role alongside a talented cast.

The film features a star-studded cast – from Seyfried as Lovelace herself to Peter Sarsgaard as her opportunistic and abusive husband Chuck Traynor. Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Chris Noth, Chloe Sevigny, Juno Temple and Hank Azaria make appearances in various supporting parts and, of course, where would a 2013 movie be without multi-tasker James Franco. He appears here as a sleazy, but still somehow charming young Hugh Hefner.

Amanda Seyfried James Franco Rob Epstein Jeffrey Friedman

Amanda Seyfried will play Linda Boreman AKA porn star Linda Loveless who shot to porn fame and notoriety after she starred in the hugely successful 1972 movie Deep Throat. Directed by Howl's Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, the biopic follows Lovelace's life between the age of 20 and 32, escaping from a strict religious family in a small town to her abusive and self-titled manager, Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard).

Amanda Seyfried
Amanda Seyfried Will Play Linda Loveless In Challenging New Role.

According to Slash Film, the film will reveal Lovelace's "tough, complicated life" as although she was widely an icon of sexual freedom, her husband's abuse and sale into prostitution transformed the once "charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio" into a fierce antiporn activist, writing books on the evils of the porn industry as she told her true story to the world. Written by Trust's (2010) Andy Bellin, The Guardian praises the "handsomely mounted period piece" and admires the range of leads Seyfried and Sarsgaard, whilst HitFix reckons the film plays too safe and "doesn't go deep enough" for their liking in a "bland biopic."

The Big Wedding Review


Good

An all-star cast very nearly goes down with the ship as filmmaker Justin Zackham (The Bucket List) indulges in relentlessly farcical silliness. Thankfully the actors play it relatively straight, injecting moments of dark emotion and sharp wit in between the corny wackiness. But the script is more interested in humiliating its characters than finding any genuine humour.

The eponymous nuptials are between Alejandro and Missy (Barnes and Seyfried), who haplessly watch their families implode as the big day approaches. Alejandro's adoptive dad Don (De Niro) and his long-time girlfriend Bebe (Sarandon) are planning the event, but Alejandro's deeply religious birth-mother (Rae) is coming from Colombia, so he asks his dad to pretend to still be married to his ex-wife Ellie (Keaton). Meanwhile, Alejandro's sister Lyla (Heigl) is having her own marriage crisis, while his brother Jared (Grace) can't keep his libido under control.

As the preparations continue, the plot gets increasingly tangled. But it also becomes strangely ingrown, as if these people have never met anyone outside their small circle of family and friends. Past secrets are revealed and dark peccadillos come to light, leading to a series of manic confrontations. Through it all, the film remains blandly amusing, although its rather extreme moments never quite escalate to Meet the Parents hilarity. Thankfully they avoid the strained goofiness of Death at a Funeral

Amanda Seyfried On The Bad Side Of Weight Loss: 'I Had Huge Breasts'


Amanda Seyfried Ellen Degeneres

Amanda Seyfried doesn’t have any body image issues concerning her breasts – not anymore at least. The actress was recently a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show and the conversation somehow turned to the size of Amanda’s assets – which the actress clearly had no problem with. She did advocate against harsh diets though, saying: "I looked way better when I was 15. I had huge breasts, and then I came to Hollywood and I was like 'I got to lose weight. I got to look thin and fit,' and I lost them a little bit."

The actress admitted that she now has no problem with the size and shape of any part of her body, but it did take her a while to get to this point. When Ellen asked whether Seyfried now thinks she looks good naked, the Red Riding Hood actress had this to say: "At this point in my life I do. Because you know what, it just doesn't matter anymore. You just have to. Like, when you're young you don't appreciate it, and I feel like everyone that's a bit older wishes they appreciated when they were young."

The topic came about when Amanda and Ellen were discussing Seyfried’s recent appearance in Allure magazine’s 'How to Look Good Naked' issue. When asked by the host why she was the only woman in the issue, who wasn’t actually naked (so don't waste your time scouring Google), Seyfried answered: “I really don’t know. No one asked me to be. I don’t wanna take it personally, but no one mentioned nudity.”

Amanda Seyfried Thinks She Looked 'Feminine' With A Larger Bust


Amanda Seyfried Ellen Degeneres

Amanda Seyfried laments her weight loss when she moved to Hollywood because she lost her 'beautiful huge breasts' that she possessed as a teenager.

In an interview on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show', the 'Les Miserables' star was asked if she felt that she looked good naked. 'At this point in my life, I do', she said, adding that she thinks that most older people wished that they'd appreciated what they had when they were young. 'I looked way better when I was 15', she confessed. 'I had beautiful huge breasts and then I came to Hollywood and I was like, 'I gotta lose weight, I gotta look thin and fit' and I lost them a little bit.' The 27-year-old insisted, however, that she didn't miss them because they were 'quite uncomfortable' but claimed that she had 'some nice curves' and thinks that women should embrace their figures 'as opposed to trying to get rid of everything all the time.'

It might have been a case of TMI for many viewers, but she nonetheless earned applause from the studio crowd with her empowering comments on the pressures of being too slim. The star didn't have to worry too much about her figure in her recent project though which saw her voice protagonist MK in the animated movie 'Epic' which is now out in movie theatres.

Amanda Seyfried Wants Her 'Beautiful, Huge Breasts' Back!


Amanda Seyfried Juno Temple Ellen Degeneres Noah Baumbach Adam Driver Ben Stiller Greta Gerwig Naomi Watts James Franco Peter Sarsgaard

Les Miserables actress Amanda Seyfried says she lost her "beautiful, huge breasts" after moving to Hollywood to pursue a career in movies. The 27-year-old - who plays Linda Lovelace in a forthcoming biopic - called in on the Ellen Degeneres show this week to discuss her beginnings.

"I looked way better when I was 15. I had beautiful, huge breasts!" the actress explained, "And then I came to Hollywood and I was like I gotta lose weight. I gotta look thin. I gotta get fit. And I lost them a little bit." It seems she lost more than "a little bit," telling DeGeneres she was an D cup though that she doesn't miss them, "...because they were ... uncomfortable."

Despite her own decisions, Seyfried warned, "I was feminine. I had some nice curves. And I think we should appreciate that instead of trying to get rid of everything."

Although this adventure's premise will appeal to children, and the child within us, the film itself is far too simplistic to be a classic. But at least the animation looks terrific, with swooping action and an inventive use of nature imagery. The result is relatively engaging, consistently entertaining and never remotely suspenseful.

The story begins as teen Mary Katherine, better known as MK (voiced by Seyfried), returns home to live with her mad-inventor dad (Sudeikis) after her mother dies. Dad's house is on the edge of the forest, where he is obsessed with discovering a miniature world of beings who keep the natural world running. But his focus on work has alienated everyone in his life, and MK is still struggling to break through to him. Then she has a freak encounter with the tiny Queen Tara (Knowles), who shrinks her to two inches tall. Suddenly she's working with the Queen's chief leafman Ronin (Farrell), a rogue soldier Nod (Hutcherson), and a goofy slug and snail duo (Ansari and O'Dowd) to save the forest from the evil Mandrake (Waltz).

The script eliminates all complexity in its depiction of good and evil. Mandrake is bent on destroying the forest for no real reason, trying to bring his creeping grey decay to what is otherwise an idyllic, magical world drenched in colourful flowers, verdant ferns and trickling brooks. In other words, it's so obvious who is going to win this battle that we never for a moment worry about our rag-tag group of heroes, no matter what violence they face. So we sit back and enjoy the animators' work. While the humans look like plastic dolls, the bugs, birds, plants and critters are simply astounding, and some of the action scenes are genuinely exhilarating.

James Franco's 'As I Lay Dying' Packs A Punch [Trailer]


James Franco Amanda Seyfried Tim Blake Nelson Danny McBride Sofia Coppola

As I Lay Dying - which competes for the Un Certain Regard award at the Cannes Film Festival this month - is very much James Franco's baby. The 35-year-old Oscar nominee wrote, directed and stars in the movie adapted from William Faulkner's classic American novel of the same name.

Though the trailer hints at Franco's penchant for the surreal and avant-garde, it looks a far more straight laced movie than his previous stints behind the camera. The movie tells the story of Addie Bundren's death and her impoverished family's subsequent quest to bury the body in accordance with her wishes. Franco plays the second oldest child Darl, while Tim Blake Nelson appears to do a sublime job of portraying father Anse. Danny McBride plays friend of the family Vernon Tull while Fruitvale's Anha O'Reilly plays daughter Dewey Dell.

Seth MacFarlane Reunites With Universal For His Second Directorial Effort For The Big Screen


Seth Macfarlane Charlize Theron Liam Neeson Amanda Seyfried Sarah Silverman

As the anticipation for his sophomore film effort builds, Seth McFarlane reunites with Universal to co-write, direct, produce and star in A Million Ways to Die in the West. The studio has just recently come aboard to finance and distribute the western, but it isn’t exactly a risky bid for them, after McFarlane’s big screen debut Ted, starring Mark Wahlberg opposite an animated potty-mouthed teddy bear, became an international smash success and grossed $549 million worldwide. Obviously Hollywood is impressed with McFarlane’s work on Ted, as well as the animated series Family Guy and American Dad! because the writer managed to score some extremely coveted actors to fill the cast of Ways to Die. The list includes Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi.

According to Reuters, via Yahoo News, the film will tell the story of a sheep farmer named Albert. And no, the exact premise isn’t known yet, but we mostly have faith in McFarlane’s ability to make this vastly unappealing premise somehow interesting. Plus, a lot of the creators of Ted – notably, producers Scott Stuber and Jason Clark and co-writers Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin – have been drafted in to work on this, so, barring some inevitable for this team crude jokes and cheap laughs, A Million Ways To Die In The West sounds like a pretty promising production. The film is due to be released on May 30, 2014 across American theatres. And for those of you eagerly awaiting Ted 2, do not fret – that’s almost inevitable in the future too, as Universal has bought the rights to both films.

'F**k Yeah' - Amanda Seyfried Takes Over From Liv Tyler As Face Of Givenchy's Very Irresistible


Amanda Seyfried

"F**k yeah." This might not be the kind of language that you naturally associate with the Hollywood actress Amanda Seyfried, but this was her response when she was asked if she'd like to take over from Liv Tyler as the face of Givenchy's Very Irresistible fragrance. "It's an honest collaboration," she told WWD. "I'm proud to be a part of [the brands I'm involved with] because what they do is really cool, especially Givenchy - they're so artistic. And I feel like I have a foot in the fashion industry now."

The advertising campaign has already been shot, with Seyfried featuring in both print and TV campaigns. The TV ad was shot by Cédric Klapisch, whilst the print campaign was helmed by Glen Luchford, with Riccardo Tisci on styling duties. The global president at Givenchy, Thierry Maman, commented that the Les Miserablees actress had been chosen for her natural "style and elegance" and added that her high profile made her "a natural pick" for the Very Irresistible brand. "Amanda is a chic, sexy woman who is a perfect fit for Givenchy."

That's not to say that Amanda's intending to head down the path of launching a celebrity fragrance any time soon though. "They're hard work, and the more you do, they take away from your work as an actor. I'm doing these two campaigns because I care about them and the people involved. They're great things to be attached to."

Who's In Charge Here? - Amanda Seyfried's Pooch Shows Her Who's Boss


Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfried has been spotted being taken for a walk by her pup Finn, in Los Angeles on Monday. The actress was clearly not the one in charge, as Finn tugged on his lead and directed his owner across the street in LA. At one point, the Daily Mail reports, she looked as though she was giving the pooch a bit of a talking to; presumably she doesn’t like being shown up in public by a Lassie lookalike?

Seyfried probably wasn’t prepared for the cameras either; she was dressed down in a grey t shirt, a pair of ripped jeans and some laced-up pumps – looks very much to us like she’s enjoying a spot of down time before her work diary heats up again. She’s got three films planned for release this year, which means she’ll be doing a whole lot of travelling in order to fulfil the inevitable promo duties that come with movie releases. First up, she’s scheduled to appear in the animated movie Epic, along with Jason Sudeikis and Steven Tyler, before gracing our screens in comic drama Pete and Goat – described on imdb.com as “an adventurous road trip” movie. Then she’ll play the title role in The Girl Who Conned The Ivy League, which is currently in development.

Hopefully keeping busy will allow her to forget a terrible incident that happened to her recently… being mistaken for Lindsay Lohan. Terrifying stuff for any actress trying to retain some dignity in the madness of Hollywood.

Celebrity Lookalikes? Amanda Seyfried Mistaken For Lindsay Lohan At Airport


Amanda Seyfried Lindsay Lohan

Could you mistake Amanda Seyfried for Lindsay Lohan?

Sure, at one point, both actresses were blonde, but that’s pretty much where the similarities end. Still, some fans can miss the distinction once in a while, as a tweet from Seyfried on Thursday proves: "I just got mistaken for a Ms. Lohan at Newark Airport." This then prompted a little humorous exchange with one of Seyfried’s Twitter followers, Warner Bros. VP for production, Sarah Shechter.

"I do that all the time when I see you," Shechter tweeted.

Harry Reams, The Accidental 'Deep Throat' Star, Dies Aged 65


Linda Lovelace Adam Brody Rob Epstein Amanda Seyfried

Harry Reams, the former porn actor best known for starring opposite Linda Lovelace in Deep Throat, has died of pancreatic cancer in Utah. Reams - who starred in almost 400 adult films - was working the lights on the famous adult movie but ended up scoring the lead role after the original star was "unable to perform his duties," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Manhattan-born Reams was arrested in 1974 for conspiracy to distribute obscenity across state lines, eventually appearing in a court case that had broader culture implications for creative freedom. Jack Nicholson and various other stars lent their support though co-star Lovelace testified against him. He was convicted in 1976, though the verdict was overturned in 1977.

Reams struggled with alcoholism, though gave up drink in 1989, married, and became a real estate agent. In 2005, he revealed he never saw Linda Lovelace after the criminal trial and remained bitter over the conflict. "The only opportunity I had to briefly make contact with Linda Lovelace was vicariously through a friend of hers, who called me up to tell me that she needed some money; she needed a liver transplant and couldn't afford it. So I sent a thousand dollars to her... and never heard back, never got a thank-you." Lovelace - who later denounced her career in pornography - died in 2002 following complications from a serious automobile accident.

Is 'Veronica Mars' Kickstarter Cash A Game Changer For The Movie Business?


Kristen Bell Amanda Seyfried

The CW's acclaimed teen noir drama 'Veronica Mars' is coming back with a bang. When showrunner Rob Thomas announced a Kickstarter project to find $2 million for a feature film, many fans of the best-loved series were probably quietly optimistic, though little more. However, by 8.30am on Thursday, the prospect of a Veronica Mars movie starring original stars Kristen Bell and Amanda Seyfriend was a very real proposition having collected $2.5 million from pledgers.

Getting funding through Kickstarter is becoming a viable option for creative types looking to make their first movie, or record their first album, though Veronica Mars is the largest film the website has ever helped launch. The show's star, Kristin Bell was unequivocal, "If we reach our fundraising goal, we'll shoot the movie this summer," she said. In the pitch video for the movie, the original stars of the series wander around Bell's Hollywood home, wondering how they would make a Veronica Mars movie. 

Other success stories on the fundraising website include Amanda Palmer - the lead singer of The Dresden Dolls - who raised over $1 million to cut her Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra album, despite seeking just $100,000. Elsewhere, video-game Wasteland 2 was funded by Kickstarter, to the tune of $2,933,252. The post-apocalyptic game - originally released by Electronic Arts - is set for release later this year.

Yeah sure, so winning The Oscars is pretty important, but don't kid yourself too much, it's what people are wearing on the Oscars red carpet that really interests the punters. This year's awards saw relatively few fashion mishaps, though on the other hand also lacked anyone really taking a chance with their outfit - understandable, perhaps, given the scale of the public platform they were all appearing on.

Amanda Seyfried 'Les Miserables' Premiere Berlin Germany

It's Oscar weekend, so the stars are converging on Los Angeles for the big night on Sunday. Returning from the premiere of her new film Lovelace at the Berlin Film Festival, Amanda Seyfried was caught by the paparazzi as she landed at the airport to support Les Miserables, which has seven nominations including Best Picture. She signed autographs as she was ushered through the arrivals hall by her aggressive security team.

The press also caught up with Jennifer Lawrence as she made her way through the Los Angeles airport. She's the favourite to win Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook and was also rushed through the arrivals hall while photographers snapped pictures. She managed to sign a few autographs along the way, and one of her minders can be seen putting her luggage in the back of her car, including a teddy bear.

Amanda Seyfried causes a mini riot at LAX Airport in Los Angeles after arriving back from a recent trip to Germany. The Les Miserables actress, wearing dark shades, is hounded by photographers and autograph hunters in the arrivals terminal whilst being ushered to her waiting car outside. In fairness to Seyfried, she manages to sign posters for various fans, despite her management and security team yelling for people to get out of the way.

Amanda had been in Germany for the premiere of her new movie Lovelace at the Berlin Film Festival. Rob Epstein's movie, also starring Peter Sarsgaard, stars Seyfried as the late porn actress Linda Lovelace.

Radcliffe For An Oscar? ‘Kill Your Darlings’ Snapped Up At Sundance


Daniel Radcliffe Elizabeth Olsen Amanda Seyfried Harvey Weinstein

Kill Your Darlings, a movie starring Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe as a young Allen Ginsberg, has been snapped up by Sony Pictures Classics following its screening at the Sundance Film Festival. The deal is for U.S, Australian, New Zealand, South African, African TV and Eastern European rights.

The film explores how a 1944 murder brought together the young college students who would go on to become the voices of the Beat Generation. As well as Radcliffe, Kill Your Darlings stars Ben Foster, Dane DeHaan, Michael C. Hall, Jack Huston and Elizabeth Olsen. “This is an amazing movie, a great American drama, thriller, and perfect evocation of New York in the 1940′s as you have never seen on screen before,” Sony said in a statement. “With an ensemble cast that is truly mind-blowing led by Daniel Radcliffe in a profoundly moving performance as Allen Ginsberg, we are witnessing the birth of a major new American filmmaker.”

There has certainly been a clear buying trend at Sundance 2013, with Radcliffe’s movie the latest to be snapped up in super-quick time. The most high profile acquisition was The Way, Way Back – a comedy starring Steve Carell, Toni Colette and Sam Rockwell that Fox Searchlight thought was strong enough to splash $10 million on. The film has a pretty decent pedigree, with Academy Award winning writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash getting behind the camera for their debut flick. Elsewhere, Jennifer Coolidge’s comedy Austenland found a home at Sony ($4 million), though all eyes were on big-wig Harvey Weinstein, a man known for picking up undiscovered gems at film festivals and turning them into Oscar contenders. This year, he opted for Fruitvale, a drama starring The Wire’s Michael B. Jordan that focuses on police brutality. “I was completely amazed by this incredible film. This earth-shattering story is one that needs to be told, and we are honored to be able to share Oscar’s story with audiences everywhere,” said Weinstein in a statement.

Gus Van Sant To Direct Fifty Shades Of Grey? James Franco Lets Rumour Slip


James Franco Gus Van Sant Amanda Seyfried Garrett Hedlund

James Franco may have let slip who’s on board to direct Fifty Shades of Grey. The actor was speaking to the Sunday Times at the Sundance Festival and revealed that he was under the impression that Gus Van Sant was on board to do it. And, he revealed, if the Good Will Hunting director was on board, he’d be in favour of stepping into the hotkey-contested role of Christian Grey.

“It sounds interesting,” said Franco, when asked about the forthcoming novel adaptation. “I heard Gus [Van Sant] might direct it. If he directed it, I'd do it.” It wouldn’t be the first time that Franco had been involved in a cinematic BDSM adventure, either. He produced the BDSM documentary Kink as well as playing the role of Hugh Hefner in the porn biopic Lovelace. Gus Van Sant is no stranger to a controversial subject matter, either, with movies such as My Own Private Idaho and Drugstore Cowboy under his belt. Interestingly, as Examiner.com reported, Van Sant recently finished filming Promised Land, with the very same production company being used on Fifty Shades of Grey.

Fans of Fifty Shades are starting get impatient, waiting to find out who will be cast in the movie, as well as who will helm the production from the director’s chair. A number of fan-made ‘trailers’ have surfaced, including one with Amanda Seyfried and Garrett Hedlund but excited fans will be disappointed to learn that the movie has not been cast yet.

Les Miserables Review


Excellent

Starting at full-emotion and never wavering for a moment, this huge movie adaptation of the long-running stage musical wears us out with its relentlessly epic approach. OK, so neither the musical nor Victor Hugo's source novel could be accused of being understated, but director Hooper (The King's Speech) never even tries to find a moment of quiet feeling here. The result is thrillingly moving, making the most of the soaring anthems that fill the show. But it's also pretty overwhelming.

The story starts in 1815 as convict Jean Valjean (Jackman) finishes 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. His parole officer Javert (Crowe) vows to keep an eye on him, but Valjean slips away and, after a redemptive encounter with a priest, eventually reinvents himself as an upstanding businessman. He tries to help fallen woman Fantine (Hathaway), rescuing her daughter Cosette (Allen, then Seyfried) from her greedy foster parents (Baron Cohen and Bonham Carter). Years later, Valjean and Cosette move to Paris, where a young revolutionary (Redmayne) falls for Cosette just as the 1832 student uprisings break out. And Javert is still determined to recapture Valjean.

Hooper maintains the play's operatic style, in which the dialog is sung-through in between the big numbers. And we're talking about massively emotional power ballads here, performed to wrenching effect. Hathaway's one-take rendition of I Dreamed a Dream is the kind of breathtaking scene that wins Oscars. Jackman's voice wavers and cracks beautifully as he holds the story together. Marks delivers a belting version of the soulful On My Own. Redmayne nearly steals the show with his soaring tenor voice and wonderful acting chops. Baron Cohen and Bonham Carter provide some raucously overwrought comical relief. And Crowe gets away with Javert's big musical moments because he has the acting power to back up his oddly thin voice.

Russell Crowe 'Doesn't Disagree' With Adam Lambert's Les Miserables Criticism


Russell Crowe Adam Lambert Hugh Jackman Amanda Seyfried Anne Hathaway

We could hardly bring ourselves to visit Russell Crowe's Twitter page when first hearing that he'd responded to Adam Lambert's criticism of Les Miserables. We assumed the boisterous Australian would take apart the former American Idol star inch-by-inch, so imagine our surprise when the actor appeared to agree with Lambert.

The singer had initially taken to Twitter after seeing the film, telling his two million followers, "Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers." In fact, his thoughts on the movie mirrored those of the critics, who gave the film generally positive reviews, though nothing out of the ordinary. Lambert added, "I do think it was cool they were singing live - but with that cast, they should have studio recorded and sweetened the vocals.The industry will say 'these actors were so brave to attempt singing this score live' but why not cast actors who could actually sound good?" Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried have singing experience, though the likes of Crowe and Anne Hathaway were effectively debuting their singing voices for the first time. Crowe, who plays Javert in the epic based on Victor Hugo's novel, tweeted in response, "I don't disagree with Adam. Sure it could have been sweetened, Tom Hooper wanted it raw and real, that's how it is." MASSIVE anti-climax.

Les Miserables - described by Rolling Stones' Peter Travers as "perfectly marvellous" - is likely to score numerous Oscar nominations in the January 10 announcement. 

Jokers! Hugh Jackman And Russell Crowe Fool Around At Les Miserables Premiere Down Under


Hugh Jackman Russell Crowe Tom Hooper Amanda Seyfried Anne Hathaway Rupert Murdoch

Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe entertained the crowds at the Les Miserables premiere in Sydney, Australia, on Thursday (December 20, 2012), laughing and joking while also pretending to race each other down the red-carpet! Tom Hooper's big screen adaptation of the musical based on Victor Hugo's classic novel has received cautious praise from critics, though Jackman's performance in particular came in for specific fanfare.

Speaking to The Australian, Jackman admitted that musicals aren't for everyone, "When it doesn't work, it stinks to high heaven, musical theatre. It can be very phoney. If it's not done well, it doesn't affect you in any way. I think musicals are the Mount Everest of moviemaking - I don't think there's anything more difficult to pull off."

Les Miserables Lap Dance! Hugh Jackman And Amanda Seyfried "Grind It Out"


Hugh Jackman Amanda Seyfried

Seems as though the Les Miserables cast got closer than we thought! Speaking on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last week, Hugh Jackman revealed how he gave Amanda Seyfried a birthday lap dance!

"I don't know if you had heard, but I had done one for Barbara Walters all those years ago.Very steamy," he told Leno, "It had been a while and I had promised never to do it again, but Amanda's birthday was the night of one of the premieres for the movie in New York, so I was singing her 'Happy Birthday." Can you guess where this is going? Yep, Jackman opted to bust out some of his Tony award winning dance moves, "Really, she's the naughtiest, cheekiest girl," he said. Seyfried had already told E! News that she barely remembers the dance, though Jackman confirmed he "started grinding it out for her", adding, "She seemed happier, I don't know."

The Australian star received a Golden Globe nomination last week, describing it as "the best 5.45am wakeup call I've had in all my life." The veteran theater actor told Ellen DeGeneres "Immediately after I found out I went back to sleep and actually had the best two hours from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. I've ever had in my life."

High Point For Hugh Jackman With A Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame


Hugh Jackman Anne Hathaway Amanda Seyfried

Hugh Jackman has had a good week, or at least a good day, as he got nominated for a Golden Globe and received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.

The Aussie actor just recently premiered his new film, the screen adaptation of Les Miserables (it’s pretty good, we hear) and is already being touted for an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Jean Valjean. Can you tell we’re in the midst of award season by now? A star on the Walk of Fame is a pretty big deal, your name written in stone in downtown Hollywood and all, but Jackman accepted it with the traditional modesty "This is quite a ride... It's a surreal experience. I'm a kid from the suburb of Barunga, on the northern side of Sydney... This is completely surreal," he said, quoted by AFP.

The 44-year-old actor accepted the honor in the company of his Les Mis co-stars Amanda Seyfried and Anne Hathaway, as well as his wife and two children. He joked about using the award plate as a parenting technique: “Say 10 years from now, when they're remembering all the things I did wrong, it's gonna save a fortune in therapy - they can come here, graffiti it, stomp on it, spill their soda on it, whatever.” Interesting idea, to be sure, but perhaps those therapy sessions would be more effective after all.

Props to the main stars of Les Miserables, they're putting in the effort on the film's run of premieres. Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and the rest of the cast were all out in force again at the New York City premiere of the novel adaptation less than a week after they'd ran the red carpet gamut in London. What a difference a continent makes, though; whilst across in the UK Hathaway and the rest of the female cast dressed prettily but conservatively, at the Ziegfield Theatre they held nothing back, both Hathaway and Seyfried causing jaws to drop with their outfits.

Anne Hathaway Back To Her Glamourous Self After Les Mis Weight-Loss


Anne Hathaway Amanda Seyfried Russell Crowe Hugh Jackman Jennifer Lawrence Sally Field

Anne Hathaway is back on the town and back to her stylish self after undergoing a massive transformation for her latest role as Fantine in Les Miserables, having been spotted around the nightspots of London shortly after arriving in the city.

Hathaway has made a series of appearances in the English capital since she flew in to promote the new film earlier this week, and it looks as though the actress was more than happy to finally be back on the town following her rigorous weigh-loss campaign for her role in Les Miserables. The actress dropped a further 25lbs from her already slim figure to get ready for her dramatic role as the Fantine, which involves her having to sell her hair and body in order to survive during the French revolution.

Anne and her fellow co-stars, including Amanda Seyfried, Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman, were in the capital for the world premiere on Wednesday (Dec 5) night, with Anne out for a meal with a male friend the following night looking seriously glamourous once again. Despite having to go down to her super-slim size, the dedication may pay off come February, with bookies making her one of the favourites to take home the Best Actress Oscar next year. That said, she still has stiff competition from the likes of Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) and Sally Field (Lincoln).

Another major awards contender is Tom Hooper's film of the epic musical Les Miserables, with a high-powered cast including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried. All of them attended the glitzy red carpet world premiere in London this week. The film opens in America on Christmas Day, and in Britain in early January.

The Big Wedding Trailer


Don and Ellie have been divorced for a long time but when their adopted son Alejandro and his fiancé Missy decide to get married, it looks to be time for a family reunion. If things weren't awkward enough with Ellie seeing that her best friend Bebe from years ago is now married to her ex-husband, Alejandro's biological mother has also decided to fly over from Columbia for the occasion. However, she happens to be an extremely devout catholic with the belief that divorce is a sin so the family's only resolution to appease her and make her feel that giving away her son was the right decision is for Don and Ellie to pretend that they are still married on the big day, to Bebe's resentment. As expected, things are not as straight forward as they planned and the days leading up to the nuptials couldn't possibly be more tense and disastrous for this unusual family.

This ridiculous though rather touching comedy has been based on the French movie 'Mon Frère Se Marie' written by Jean-Stéphane Bron and Karine Sudan and is the wonderful story of how broken families can mend or, at least, unite for their mutual relatives when it is a matter of importance. It has been directed and written by Justin Zackham ('Going Greek', 'The Bucket List') and is set to be released on May 31st 2013 in the UK.

Starring: Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes, Megan Ketch, Greg Paul, Christa Campbell, David Rasche, Christine Ebersole, Kyle Bornheimer,

Mary Katherine is a regular teenage girl who somehow mysteriously appears in an enchantingly beautiful forest full of talking slugs and miniature soldiers. In this strange new world, a war is waging between the forces of good and those who do everything within their power to try to defend nature, and the forces of evil; those who are responsible for its destruction. Wishing she'd dreamt it all at first, Mary eventually joins a team of weird but friendly characters to help protect this world as well as her own which is also, consequentially, under threat.

Les Miserables Trailer
