HELENA BONHAM CARTER WILL PLAY A BOOZY ELIZABETH TAYLOR TWENTY YEARS LATER

The delightfully eccentric Helena Bonham Carter (featured above with her mother at a flower show) is probably the LAST person you’d imagine playing movie queen Elizabeth Taylor in a film. But Helena is an accomplished actress – and happens to be blessed with a beautiful face, so she was cast to play Liz in the BBC production of “Burton and Taylor.” The script details the movie couple (Richard Burton and Elizabeth) in 1983 when they were costarring in the play “Private Lives” and probably drinking up a storm. English actor Dominic West plays Richard Burton, and it will be fun to compare this portrayal of Liz to Lindsay Lohan’s “Liz & Dick” Lifetime movie because it takes place 20 years later.

    Now that is something I would watch. An English actress playing Elizabeth Taylor, who is also of British stock,–will be award winning performance….sorry Lindsay–your good…but not as good as HBC. She even looks like her in the photo.

    Which reminds me, I never had anything against Jennifer Anniston, but her Aveeno commercials suck. Like, she can’t act.

    Personally, I never like any movie made of a person’s life, especially a deceased one. They never come off quite right. jmho

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
