WILDLIFE: CAREY MULLIGAN AND JAKE GYLENHAAL ARE FAR FROM PERFECT PARENTS

If you had a not-so-perfect childhood (isn’t that MOST people?) the movie Wildlife will bring you back to some very uncomfortable experiences. It’s set in 1960 and pretty housewife Carey Mulligan thinks she’s already over the hill at 34. She and Jake Gyllenhaal’s character have a 14 year old son who watches all their drama unfold, much like YOU did at home. Jake can’t hold down a job and he’s too “proud” to take one beneath him, so he volunteered to fight wild fires threatening his small Montana town, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Lacking job experience, Carey’s practical housewife does what she figures she has to do – she gets a job teaching swimming and starts flirting with a wealthy single older man. The son is tormented by his parents’ actions and you can’t help but identify with him. It’s a wonderful script, beautifully directed by Paul Dano – a must-see if you appreciate sensitive films.

ZOE KAZAN AND PAUL DANO: POWER COUPLE GAINING MOMENTUM

Two of our absolute favorite Hollywood nerds are developing into quite a power couple. Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano have been together since 2007, and they’re both actors with higher aspirations. They collaborated on writing the script for Wildlife, their new film based on a novel about family dynamics starring Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal, and Paul directed for the first time. Speaking of family dynamics- Zoe gave birth to their first child (a girl named Alma) over the summer, and no one even knew she was pregnant! The Brooklyn celebrity couple manage to keep their home life under the radar.

WHO MADE KATIE HOLMES CRY?

It’s Katie Holmes at a New York bus stop filming a scene for “The Extra Man” with Paul Dano– he’s the one who made her character cry. The two of them star with Kevin Kline in this sophisticated comedy, which actually sounds rather juicy. Kevin plays a suave man who’s a “walker” or escort for wealthy upper east side widows (sort of like George Hamilton.) Paul Dano (“There Will Be >Blood”) plays a young writer he befriends, who is sexually confused and inclined to cross dressing. Why he made Katie’s character cry remains to be seen. The styles worn in this movie already seem quite interesting.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
