Kate Winslet Accused of Snubbing Fans

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Kate Winslet has been accused of snubbing her fans. The Reader beauty is said to have ignored people who waited out in the rain with the hope of meeting her when she was filming her latest movie, Labor Day in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.

Fan and local resident Shanna Swan told Star, "Kate was so rude, she never once acknowledged any of us, I was devastated. She gave dirty looks to people in my town who waited hours to see her. Upon her arrival everyone was yelling 'Kate we love you!' and you could hear everyone gasping with excitement when her black Cadillac pulled up."

However, Shanna claims the whole town was left upset when the Oscar winning actress wouldn't even look over to acknowledge them. "She always plays such warm people on the big screen, I thought she would be kind, so when she was mean, I was crushed. I watched Titanic 13 times when I was 12 years old, and Kate wouldn't even look up for a second to acknowledge we were all adoring her. Everyone in town was really hurt. After she took off, one lady right next to me specifically said, 'Wow. How rude was that?'" she added.

Kardashian Family Magazine Shelved

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Legal Issues, Rumors,

Star magazinePlans for a Kardashian family magazine have reportedly been shelved because of Kris Jenner's demands. The showbiz matriarch reportedly infuriated prospective publishers American Media Inc. (AMI) with her request for approval on stories about her family across all their other publications, which include Shape, Star, National Enquirer and Radar Online.

Though in return Kris allegedly offered to give all of the family's news to the proposed magazine, AMI rejected the deal, arguing that though E! has a deal for their television shows, other outlets often get better stories about the clan.

"AMI chief David Pecker made it clear that there was no way he was going to tell his editors what stories they could and couldn't do," a source told the New York Post.

In return, Kris pulled all Kardashian-related product advertisements from Star magazine. However, a spokesperson for the reality TV star insisted no conversation about her "demands" had taken place, but she was unhappy over false claims made regarding the paternity of daughter Khloe.

Tila Tequila Credits Herself For Legalization of Gay Marriage

Tila Tequila thinks she lifted the ban on gay marriageAccording to loathsome MTV star/personality Tila Tequila, the people of California have her to thank for lifting the ban on gay marriage in the Golden State.

“It is because of me — I definitely think [my show] has helped the movement,” she claimed in an interview.

Yes, because the politicians, lobbyists, and judges involved in lifting the ban are prone to watching a reality show that is so contemptible that contestants are forced to eat pig vaginas to prove their love to a female who blatantly exploits her “bisexuality.”

“Before it came out, everyone was still a little apprehensive about [same sex relationships]. Then they realized, ‘Wow, everyone is really into this stuff, and it is fine.’ The next thing you know, [gay marriage] is legal,” she later elaborated.

Really, Tila? Really? I thought I heard plenty of asinine remarks from Jessica Alba and Katherine Heigl, but this? I’m not sure whether to laugh or feel very sorry for her.

Interview With Martin McDonagh and Colin Farrell of ‘In Bruges’

Colin Farrell and Martin McDonagh


Last week, FilmCrunch had the opportunity to interview Martin McDonagh and Colin Farrell, director and star of the upcoming film In Bruges.

Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) are two hitmen sent to the Belgian city of Bruges after a botched job in London. They’ve been told by their boss, Harry (Ralph Fiennes), to do some sight-seeing, lie low and await further instruction. But the city, full of ancient architecture and historical landmarks, can’t satiate Ray and his need for distraction. The men venture out and soon discover that beneath the city’s quaint exterior lies a strange and disturbing underbelly, a surreal setting that causes them to begin to question life and death, right and wrong, and the purpose behind their little “vacation.”

For more about the film, visit the official site or read the FilmCrunch review.

Mr. Sulu Honored in Space

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Home Entertainment, Science,

George TakeiFirst Captain Kirk is given his own star, and now Star Trek’s Mr. Sulu has an asteroid with his name on it, located between Mars and Jupiter. Discovered by two Japanese astronomers in 1994, the 7307 Takei joins the list of other asteroids that have been named after Gene Roddenberry, Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura,) and writers Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov. There are about 165,000 asteroids that have been discovered and numbered, 14,000 of which have been named. While star naming is generally done by pay-per-star on the Net, the International Astronomical Union selects and chooses its honorees at no charge. Congrats, George.

Celestron Honors Captain Kirk

William ShatnerWe’re not quite sure why we were notified about this, but we’re for anything that has to do with Star Trek and it’s first commander, Captain Kirk. William Shatner was recently honored as a favorite in a poll taken by Celestron, home of the SkyScout, the personal planetarium, as part of their Ultimate Backyard Adventure Sweepstakes promotion. He received more votes than other nominees which included Carl Sagan, Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and The Simpsons.

His prize was not only receiving one of the systems (which retails for a whopping $429.00,) but also to have an actual star named after him. After being told he would now be a permanent part of the Final Frontier, Shatner replied, “I believe that you head toward the North Star and turn left, the one on the right is mine.”

(Thanks, Bethany)
