I’ve always wondered if famous people really understand the reach of their fame. More specifically, I wonder if they automatically assume that everyone around them knows their name or face. It’s seems like a bit of an arrogant thing to think of but to mega-watt stars like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, it’s probably not too far from the truth.
But for celebrities who aren’t daily tabloid fodder, you’d think they would be happy to get by unnoticed. Then again, it must bruise the ego a little when you want to be remembered. Thankfully, there are celebrities who are not above themselves to admit their unfamous ways or rat on their friends.
Take for example, Emily Blunt who yelled at a 6-year-old to tell her she was in The Devil Wears Prada:
or Ryan Gosling who had to tell his cousin he didn’t win an Oscar (starts at 4:27):
and then there are celebrities like John Krasinski who ratted on Matt Damon when he used a magazine to try and prove who he was (Jim Halpert:1 Jason Bourne: 0) :
Oh, celebrities. Please continue going on talk shows. We love it when you admit having bruised egos.
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.
The official trailer for Looper is out and it looks totally awesome!
Directed by Rian Johnson, the science-fiction film is a futuristic look at gang culture. Set in the year 2042, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a mob hitman who assassinates targets that arrive from the future of 2072. While it’s just a job for the mobster, all is well until he receives a new target: himself from the future.
Also starring Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, the film is set to come out on September 28.
Since time travel, action and loud explosions have always fascinated me, I am pumped to see this movie!But other than that, JGL is looking particularly buff for this role. Having made good career choices in 500 Days of Summer, Inception and 50/50, it will definitely be interesting to see him kicking his own ass from the future.
After a week of teasing the teaser, the Looper trailer is finally out.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt, the futuristic sci-fi film revolves around an assassin (Gordon-Levitt) who jumps back in time to kill his targets. Things get complicated when he’s assigned to kill his future self (Willis).
Gordon-Levitt as a badass and time traveling? Smells like a winning combination to me.
“Hey andPOP,” you tell us, “you’re posting so many videos by Jimmy Kimmel.”
Well, it’s because the late night host is on a roll. It must be nice that Kimmel has tons of celebrity friends that he can call up to put together these hilarious video compilations. Anyone who can get Meryl Streep to own a mustache and Matt Damon to grope his grape suit (and then cut him from the movie) is good in my books.
This trailer for “Movie: The Movie” is supposed to sell the most epic film in history. The A-list cast goes on: George Clooney, Colin Farrell, Samuel L. Jackson, Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Emily Blunt, Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, Chewbacca and many more. It also features every stereotypical plot and genre in movie history. Why see ten movies when you can get all the action in this one?
You may know him as the writer of the new Muppets movie, but Jason Segel has a rooster of great work on his resume. From “Freaks and Geek” to “How I Met Your Mother” to “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”, he proves not only can he be funny and charming, but also a talented script writer.
When you laugh at his jokes on screen, it’s most likely one he wrote himself. Not that many actors can say they do that.
“The Muppets” movie came out two weeks ago but already, you can watch Jason shine in the upcoming comedy “The Five-Year Engagement”. If “Bridesmaids” really made you piss yourself with laughter, you will definitely enjoy the comedy flick Jason wrote. Judd Apatow produced the movie while Nicolas Stoller directed.
The dirty romantic comedy stars Jason playing opposite Emily Blunt as a couple who got engaged but are finding it hard to actually tie the knot.
Watch the trailer posted on Perez Hilton and you will be rolling on the floor.

But just as he realizes he’s falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart.

Although cutie Chris Evans has said yes to play Captain America, Emily says she is not interested to play Peggy, Captain America’s love.
This story was reported by PerezHilton however there has been no reason offered by Blunt why she turned down the role.
Sources say that Keira Knightley and Alice Eve are next on Marvel’s list.
Emily Blunt rules literally and figuratively in “The Young Victoria.” After all, the main reason to see this biopic is due to the actress’ vibrant performance – a far stretch from the Victoria we’re used to reading about in text books.
Do a simple Google search and you’ll find tons of portraits of a frowning, stern-looking Queen Victoria dressed in a black lace widow’s outfit. “The Young Victoria” shows her in a completely different light. Instead, it opens with her growing up as an over-protected child, leading to her receiving the crown as a teenager.
This focus on her early years as queen is really refreshing but ultimately, it’s Blunt’s playful performance that makes this movie engaging. As a teen, Victoria doesn’t quite understand why she wants to be queen. But she knows from birth that she will carry this “royal burden.” When King William IV (Jim Broadbent) dies, Victoria suddenly realizes what she — or rather her family –have gotten her into.
Instead of the costume melodrama that 19th century biopics usually consist of, “The Young Victoria” features more of the political side of Victoria’s early reign. But of course, there had to be a love story in the midst of that and rest assured it’s front and centre (but only at certain points).
As the summer of love comes to a close, a few celebrities have squeezed in romantic updates and even one delicious scandal.
First of all, everyone’s favourite tall-awkward-funny-guy John Krasinski (The Office) announced his engagement to actress girlfriend Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada). The couple have been dating since November, but keep their relationship under lock and key, including any details about an upcoming wedding.
Another potential celebrity wedding was spotted in Los Angeles this weekend: America’s Next Top Model Tyra Banks was caught sporting an awfully large stone on her ring finger, possibly meaning an engagement to longtime boyfriend, businessman John Utendahl. Banks hasn’t revealed any details, but she sure isn’t shy about carting the ring around town.
Jason Segel and Emily Blunt are in negotiations to join the cast of “Gulliver’s Travels,” a modern re-imagining of Jonathan Swift’s classic tale that will star Jack Black in the title role.
The Fox movie will follow the adventures of travel writer Lemuel Gulliver, who goes out on assignment to the Bermuda Triangle and ends up washing ashore the island of Lilliput, which is inhabited by a population of tiny people.
Blunt, whose movie credits include “The Devil Wears Prada,” would play the island’s princess.
Segel, one of the stars of TV’s “How I Met Your Mother,” would play Horatio, a Lilliputian who befriends Gulliver.
Rob Letterman will direct from a screenplay by Nicholar Stoller, who himself directed Segel in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and Joe Stillman.
The movie will begin shooting in the U.K. in late March. Producers are working out the scheduling as Blunt is also in talks to play Black Widow in “Iron Man 2,” which is slated to start filming in California in early April.
James McAvoy and Emily Blunt could soon be playing “star-cross’d lovers” on the big screen — but not in the way you may think.
The two actors are in talks to voice the title characters in “Gnomeo and Juliet,” a CGI-animated film loosely based on Shakespeare’s play.
As the title suggests, McAvoy and Blunt would play lovers from rival gardens.
Should Blunt sign on to the role, she would be taking over from Kate Winslet, who was originally attached to voice Juliet but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.
The film, from Miramax and Elton John’s Rocket Pictures, will feature several of John’s well-known tunes and possibly some new material.
Kelly Asbury, whose credits include “Shrek 2″ and “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron,” will direct.
The movie is currently in the storyboard stage and is expected to be completed in 2010.
McAvoy, who picked up a Golden Globe nomination for 2007′s “Atonement,” appeared in this summer’s “Wanted,” while Blunt is perhaps best known for her supporting turn in 2006′s “The Devil Wears Prada,” for which she was also nominated for a Golden Globe.
It seems that Michael Bublé and girlfriend Emily Blunt have gone their separate ways, reports E! News.
According to Bublé’s rep, the Canadian singer and the “Devil Wears Prada” actress have ended their three year relationship.
“Michael and Emily are no longer together as a couple, but they remain friends,” said Bublé publicist Liz Rosenberg.
Blunt met Bublé backstage after one of his concerts back in 2005 and the singer even penned the song “Everything” for Blunt. The pair also purchased a home in Vancouver.
“It was kind of love at first sight, but for a long time I thought it was infatuation,” he told Australia’s Sunday Mail in May. “But it wasn’t. It was love.”
