Fresh off a Golden Globe-nominated performance in Django Unchained, Leonardo DiCaprio is now thinking about taking a break.
“I am a bit drained,” DiCaprio told German publication Bild. ”I’m now going to take a long, long break. I’ve done three films in two years and I’m just worn out.”
But rather than spending his time in the Caribbean basking in the sunlight, the actor plans to put his efforts into changing the quality of our planet.
“I would like to improve the world a bit,” he said. “I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.”
I respect pretty much every role Leonardo’s been given, but this is a well-deserved break. After countless snubbings by the Academy who failed to nominate him in J. Edgar, Titanic and Django Unchained, I can’t really blame him at all!!
He will win his Oscar one day. And when that day comes, I just know that I’ll be saying this:
I can only think of a handful of American actors (Elijah Wood, Gwyneth Paltrow and Renée Zellweger, to name a few) who can do successfully do an English accent. But as far as the majority goes, the results are often quite disastrous.
I’ve never understood why directors don’t choose to hire British actors to play BRITISH CHARACTERS. Maybe they think the name of the actor will help boost sales. But honestly, I just think that’s just too big a risk to take.
(And as for Nicolas Cage’s accent, I’m just going to go out and say that he was acting like himself.)
It seems as though everywhere you look these days, there’s an ad for a new action-superhero movie. We most recently got The Amazing Spiderman and The Dark Knight. (BTW which one did you prefer)?
With all these trilogies going on, people go totally overboard and get really into it; dressing up as Peter Parker or even accessorize with a Batman cape — just to watch the movie in theatres. But if you’re extremely annoyed because your boyfriend rather go watch that instead of the new Nicholas Sparks’ chick-flick, don’t worry. There’s something here to fit your needs. It’s a support group for people who don’t like superhero movies.
Would you argue that Magic Mike is a superhero movie cause Channing Tatum is super-hot?
Yikes. Looks like Joseph Gordon-Levitt got into a bit of trouble for his comments during a Comic-Con panel this week.
Promoting his new film Looper with co-stars Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, Gordon-Levitt tread into dangerous water when he complimented Blunt’s sense of humour by saying: “She’s funny…and let’s face it, most pretty girls aren’t funny.”
But while co-star Blunt tried to mask her shock compounded by the moderator’s attempt to joke about how pretty women don’t need to try to be funny, the 50/50 actor quickly backtracked and said, “I don’t want to make sweeping generalizations.”
I know we all say a lot of stupid things in life, but I really hope you didn’t mean that. There are several gorgeous and hilarious women in the world! Think Emma Stone, Tina Fey or Mila Kunis! Even your pal Zooey Deschanel is quite funny as well.
And besides, the idea of beauty is subjective.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you are a person in this universe than you will inevitably fall under the spell of The Godling. The hype around Ryan Gosling doesn’t particularly make me like him more, but that fact that he pays absolutely no attention to the worldwide obsession is what gets me. Swoon.
The depth of his movies and the risks he takes make the ladies of Single White Females reason that he is the answer to world peace, malaria and climate change. And even though Ryan Gosling is Canadian (win) he would be the perfect president.
If you really think about it: We are all Ryan Gosling. He’s part us all.

Another strike in Tinseltown looms.
Hollywood’s two main actors’ unions are refusing to join forces for upcoming contract negotiations with studios and the outcome could be another strike-induced standstill, reminiscent of the recently resolved writer’s strike.
According to CBC.ca, the board of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) said Saturday that it had voted to cut ties with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG).
In the past, the unions have been less than friendly but always remained united in contract talks.
“For the past year SAG leadership in Hollywood has engaged in a relentless campaign of disinformation and disparagement,” AFTRA president Roberta Reardon stated in a news release.
SAG president Alan Rosenberg rebutted by saying the television guild’s “refusal now to bargain together with us and their last-second abandonment of the joint process is calculated [and] cynical.
“It may serve the interests of their institution, but not its members,”
SAG consists of 120,000 members of movie and television actors. AFTRA is 70,000-strong and represents actors, singers, announcers and journalists.
Both parties have agreed to start talks as the contract for actors expires at the end of June.
