EGOMANIACAL KANYE WEST CAN ONLY DREAM OF BEING AS SUCCESSFUL AS RIHANNA

Without fanfare, Rihanna, 28, is gradually oozing her way into the acting business. She’s taking her time and learning along the way. She was cast to play the iconic Janet Leigh role on the final season of Bates Motel. And she’s currently filming Oceans 8 where she’s getting acting tips from the likes of Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett. In the script, eight women scheme to pull off a major New York robbery somehow connected to the Met Gala – yes, that means fashion galore! Rihanna’s character is a Caribbean tech wizard. With her success in music, fashion, etc, Rihanna is sort of THE ANTI-KANYE. She does is ALL quietly, without Kanye’s Trump-style bragging, posturing, and tirades. Last year she earned 75 million, leaving Kanye WAY in the dust….

CATE BLANCHETT: LEADER OF THE OCEANS 8 RAT PACK?

We never paid much attention to George Clooney’s Oceans Eleven series of movies – just the same old stuff – self-indulgent and unoriginal. Now the same people are filming Oceans 8 with an all-female cast and we’re puzzled. It’s kinda sad that women have to remake roles written for men because there are so few original parts for women. Of course it’s better than NOTHING – but don’t blame the women if the worn-out casino heist concept seems tired. The cast is stellar- Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling, and Asian American rapper Awkwafina (Nora Lum.) That’s a powerful and varied group. Hopefully, the script was written by women. Cate Blanchett started filming scenes in New York and she looks formidable in her green velvet suit. The movie isn’t coming out until 2018, however.

“FAR FROM HEAVEN” DIRECTOR TODD HAYNES MAY HAVE DONE IT AGAIN!

137344PCN_Carol30cut

Three of our favorite people created a movie together that they showed in Cannes to considerable fanfare and a standing ovation. Can’t WAIT to see it! The guy in the middle is Todd Haynes, the incredible director responsible for one of our all-time favorite movies, Far From Heaven. Heaven starred Julianne Moore and Dennis Haysbert and took place in Connecticut in the 1950’s. It was gorgeously photographed and incredibly sensitive. Haynes is masterful at creating a midcentury vibe. His latest is called “Carol” and it concerns an aspiring young woman who works as a department store clerk, and falls in love with an older married woman. It takes place in the 50’s in New York City. Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) plays the young clerk and Kate Blanchett plays the older woman. Kate’s dress at the premier is a knockout, by the way.

ANDREW DICE CLAY IS SPREADING A RUMOR ABOUT HIMSELF

And it’s a doozy. Clay planted the idea that he just MIGHT be nominated for an Oscar for his role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. The movie is enjoying decent reviews (we loved it!) and excellent boxoffice. It has been described as a take-of on “A Streetcar Named Desire“ since Cate Blanchett’s character shares many characteristics with the tragic Blanche Dubois. Of course that comparison DELIGHTED Clay because that means HIS beer swilling working class character is reminiscent of Marlon Brando. Since Cate is likely to earn a nomination for her role, Clay figured “Why not me too?” Actually Clay was well cast as a more subtle version of himself, but his acting wasn’t all THAT. Still, he has high hopes!

“BLUE JASMINE” IS NOT SERIOUS – IT’S ACTUALLY LOADS OF FUN

Don’t hesitate to see Woody Allen’s new movie “Blue Jasmine.” Although the story of Wall Street greed can be viewed as tragic- the characters are hilarious – and that includes Cate Blanchett. Nobody writes upper class egocentric New York characters better than Woody. He knows all their idiosyncrasies. And when they are forced to associate with “ordinary people” the results are laugh out loud hilarious. The funny thing is all the rich people in Woody’s movie have upper east side accents and the poor people have Brooklyn accents. Even though they live in San Francisco! Cate Blanchett is a fish out of water when she moves in with her less aspiring sister. Many amusing situations result, but the message that disaster CAN be survived keeps the story upbeat. And very entertaining.

WOODY ALLEN LIVENED UP “BLUE JASMINE” WITH ANDREW DICE CLAY

We never thought we’d see Andrew Dice Clay acting in a movie alongside Cate Blanchett, but Woody Allen put them together in Blue Jasmine. Cate plays a sophisticated New York woman whose Wall Street financier husband (played by Alec Baldwin) turns out to be a white collar criminal like Bernie Madoff. She has to leave everything behind and move in with her kind but cash strapped sister in San Francisco. Dice plays the rather common handyman ex husband of the sister. Clay recalled that when his manager told him Woody Allen reached out, he was in SHOCK, Clay thought “That’s the last guy I ever thought would call for me! I thought it was an April fool’s joke!” As for Woody, he was happy with the results. Maybe another comeback for the Dice Man.

Australia is very proud of it’s successful actors so four of them were honored with stamps in the Australian Legends of the Screen stamp collection. Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Geoffrey Rush, and Cate Blanchett are featured in 55 cent stamps available both in and out of character. Something to aspire to.

CATE BLANCHETT: WHERE'S MY HANDBAG?

cate_blanchettdresscut.jpgLooks like there’s an Oscar casualty nobody wants to talk about, so we’ll piece it together the best we can. We hear that Cate Blanchett was given a Lana Marks crocodile and diamond bag to wear with her Armani gown to the Oscars. The $100,000 bag (we can’t believe it either, but sources insist that’s what it’s worth) was supposedly delivered to Cate’s hotel suite in Beverly Hills. On the Saturday before the Oscars, Kate’s hotel room was full of people from Armani and Harper’s Bazaar and her stylist hid the pricey bag in the back of the closet. Cate was out most of Saturday afternoon and evening. The next day Cate and her stylist couldn’t find the bag so she wasn’t able to carry it on the red carpet. They felt awful and told the Lana Marks people the bag was missing. Apparently it was eventually reported to the police and there is a big investigation underway that includes people from Armani, Harpers Bazaar, and hotel employees. Lana Marks PR had no comment.
