Jared Leto: Jennifer Lawrence Putting on a “Bit of an Act”?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Red Carpet,

Jared Leto at the OscarsJared Leto wonders if Jennifer Lawrence's haphazard ways are a "bit of an act."

The American Hustle actress tripped up over her dress as she went to accept the Oscar for Best Actress at last year's Academy Awards, and then slipped again on the red carpet at this year's show, and Jared is getting suspicious.

"You know, I'm starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act," he told Access Hollywood.

Jared - who was named Best Supporting Actor for his role in Dallas Buyers Club on Sunday - also explained how a moment when Jennifer, 23, went off script as she came onto the stage was because she saw him and his family laughing. "She said, 'What are you laughing at?' But what she didn't know was that Ellen was on the side... making, pantomiming [motions like], 'Don't fall, don't fall,' and my mom and my brother are all cracking up. I guess we don't have any manners. You can take them out of Louisiana but you can't take Louisiana out of them, right?" Jared, 42, added.

Jared Leto Hasn’t Seen ‘Dallas Buyers Club’

Jared Leto on the set of 'Dallas Buyers Club'Jared Leto hasn't seen Dallas Buyers Club.

The 42-year-old actor - who picked up Best Supporting Actor for his role as transsexual AIDS victim Rayon in the movie at Sunday's Oscars - plans to watch his work eventually, but wants to "leave it alone" at present because the project was such an "intense" experience.

"I have not seen the film yet. I think one day I will watch it, because, you know, I'll be curious at some point. But it was such an intense role. It's better for me to just leave it alone right now," he said while speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres show.

Jared appeared on the show just a few hours after getting home for the night, but wasn't upset at his lack of sleep because he had enjoyed celebrating so much: "I got in at -- I think the crack ass of dawn last night, maybe 6 o'clock, 5.30. Don't feel sorry for me, this is a time to revel in it, it's a sunrise you want to see. My mother, my brother were there and one of the highlights of the night was seeing my mom dance with Madonna. You meet all these amazing people last night, whether it was Jane Fonda or Liza Minnelli..."


Ellen DeGeneres Called Transphobic After Oscars Joke

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television,

Ellen DeGeneresEllen DeGeneres has been branded a "transphobic" after she made a joke at the Oscar Awards on Sunday.

The talk show host - who is openly gay - has been criticized by fans after she joked that Liza Minnelli looked like a drag queen at the glamorous event, held in Los Angeles, at the weekend. "Hello to the best Liza Minnelli impersonator I've ever seen," Ellen, who was hosting the awards, said to Liza at the ceremony before adding, "Good job, sir."

Viewers took to Twitter afterwards to hit out at Ellen for her remark. "I did not appreciate Ellen's mean joke about Liza. I found it transphobic and disrespectful [sic]," Bruce LaBruce wrote. While Greastzok tweeted, "Are we going to address the fact that ellen blatantly called liza minelli a man you'd think she would know better im extremely disappointed. i literally just sat there in disbelief when she said that i was like did she actually just say that [sic]."

However, Liza, 67, didn't appear to take offence from the joke and claims the 56-year-old comedian didn't mean "any harm" by it. "I think she thought it would be funny, but she never stopped after she said it and said 'my friend Liza Minnelli.' So I think it went a little stray on her. I don't think she meant any harm at all, and she's a wonderful lady," she told TMZ.


Winona Ryder Wore a $10 Dress to the Oscars

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities,

Winona RyderWinona Ryder once wore a $10 dress to the Oscars.

The Girl, Interrupted star is an avid bargain hunter and lover of vintage clothes, and is also not afraid to recycle outfits she has previously worn to events. "Most of my wardrobe is vintage and I've worn dresses to the Oscars that I got for $10. At Sean Penn's last Haiti gala I wore this vintage dress that I'd worn to a film premiere in 2005. I know that's kind of a no-no in the fashion world, but why wear something just once if you love it?" she told Red magazine.

The 42-year-old actress rose to fame in the mid 80s while she was still a teenager and had continuing success in her 20s, which she says made her 30s hard, as her young looks meant she didn't always get picked for the roles she wanted: "My early thirties were rough. I went through stuff that I would have gone through, and probably should have gone through much younger, but I had spent my twenties working. Even when I was the right age for older roles, people thought of me as being younger. It was tough because I'd had so much success in my early twenties."

Jared LetoJared Leto is celebrating his Oscar nomination with vegan pancakes.

The 42-year-old star is over the moon at receiving a Best Supporting Actor nod for his portrayal of HIV positive transsexual Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, however, his somewhat unremarkable plans to celebrate include going back to bed because the nominations - which were revealed at 5:38am Californian time today - were announced so early in the morning.

"I'm going back to bed and then wake up and make vegan pancakes. I thought I didn't get the nomination because I woke up and [mistakenly] thought it was getting light outside. But then I got a knock on the door from Emma Ludbrook, who produced [documentary film] Artifact with me," the newly-minted Oscar nominee quipped to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jared, who won a Golden Globe award for his performance on Sunday, will be in good company at the Oscars as his co-star Matthew McConaughey is up for Best Actor for his portrayal of AIDS victim Ron Woodroof.
