KAREEM ABDUL-JABBAR SAYS DON’T FEEL GUILTY ABOUT LOVING GREEN BOOK

We were extremely impressed with NBA Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s essay about the movie Green Book in The Hollywood Reporter. He addressed the issue that during awards season, controversies “pop up” that could taint appreciation of a film. Family members questioned Green Book’s accuracy, and tasteless past behavior by the filmmakers suddenly came to light. Obviously Kareem felt Green Book IS significant and meaningful, and these problems simply aren’t all that important. He weighed every issue haunting this wonderful film and decided “unless it’s a documentary, filmmakers are history’s interpreters, not its chroniclers.” We suggest that you read the essay AND see the movie.

JONAH HILL LIKES TO EXPERIMENT WITH HIS LOOKS

Here’s a Hollywood moment. Jonah Hill is yakking up a storm, waiting for his car outside Barneys in Beverly Hills and he has a brand new hair color. Last week while he was in Cabo San Lucas with his sexy girlfriend, stylist Gianna Santos, he had green hair. This wavy blonde look is reminiscent of Jerry Lee Lewis. (Jonah lightened his beard also.) He’s carrying a man-purse or a small gym bag and a shopping bag from the store. The size of the bag indicates that it’s a gift for his girlfriend. He’s no fool.

HERE’S A CELEBRITY WIFE WITH A SENSE OF ADVENTURE

How often do you see the wife of one of the most successful actors in Hollywood riding an electric scooter on a freezing cold day in New York? Deborra-Lee Furness is married to the very athletic Hugh Jackman, so we imagine she likes to keep up with him, activity-wise. Actress Deborra must be one of those very outdoorsy Australian women because she didn’t hesitate attach her phone for navigation and ride a scooter to her destination in Manhattan. (Of course she’s a mother of two and didn’t forget her safety helmet.)

GLASS COULD BE THE REASON FOR BRUCE WILLIS’S ODD BEHAVIOR

NOW we know why Bruce Willis has been looking a bit out-of-it lately. We just saw his new movie Glass, which Bruce and the other cast members have been promoting in Europe. We figure Bruce is just plain EMBARRASSED at what his career has become. We found M. Night Shyamalan’s new “thriller” shockingly awful with pretentious and nonsensical dialogue. How four decent actors were talked into filming this is a mystery – Sarah Paulson, James McAvoy, Samuel L Jackson and Bruce, must have been swept away by that Shyamalan mystique and lived to regret it.

ANNE HATHAWAY KNOWS HOW TO MAXIMIZE POTENTIAL

The Hollywood Reporter did a staggering breakdown on what A-list celebrities are PAID for wearing certain items on the red carpet at events like The Golden Globes. A young attractive actress (especially a nominee) could not only get a free designer gown, but a cash payment of at least $50,000, up to $200,000, if she appears on a best dressed list! If she shows off a designer handbag on the red carpet, that’s another $10,000 to $15,000. Shoe designers pay up to $10,000 for an actress to make her shoes visible. Anne Hathaway knows how to make the best of a red carpet – she’s showing dress, shoes, handbag, AND earrings ($125,000)- that’s a potentially NICE payout!

THE MOVIE “KITCHEN” HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FOOD

Just seeing this photo of Tiffany Haddish, Melissa McCarthy, and Elizabeth Moss in their 1970’s attire filming Kitchen in New York, got us interested in seeing the movie. It’s a comedy/drama about three Hell’s Kitchen mob wives who take over their husbands’ rackets when the mobsters are sent to prison. AND the film was written and directed by a woman – Andrea Berloff. We always have higher expectations for movies made by women – the characters seem more relatable.

THERE’S MORE TO RAMI MALEK THAN MEETS THE EYE

We learned two interesting things about Rami Malek today: First and most important – he has an identical TWIN brother named Sami. Sami, a teacher, is slightly beefier and has facial hair, but both are handsome in their own way. We found this photo online of the 37 year old twins with a friend, who is also a teacher. As you may know, Rami is dating his Bohemian Rhapsody costar Lucy Boynton, and we find that noteworthy because his LAST girlfriend was his Mr Robot costar Portia Doubleday. So THAT’S how he acquires his girlfriends…

LAUREN SANCHEZ JUST COULDN’T KEEP A SECRET!

We have to congratulate The National Enquirer for their fabulous scoop on the world’s richest man, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Married Jeff has been besotted with beautiful TV presenter and entrepreneur Lauren Sanchez and sneaking around with her for at least eight months. (Bezos and Lauren’s husband Patrick Whitesell had been friends) Lauren was so thrilled with the romance that she showed her friends naked photos and love messages that Jeff texted her. Naughty girl! ONE of those friends couldn’t resist leaking the info to The National Enquirer a few months ago and the tabloid immediately started investigating and documenting the torrid romance, which they recently revealed with a flourish! Nicely done!

SEAN STEWART: DA YA THINK HE’S SEXY?

Whenever we see Sean Stewart, 38, he seems to be leisurely shopping in exclusive Beverly Hills stores while wearing shorts and some form of bedroom slippers. Sean didn’t seem to inherit his father Rod Stewart’s ambition, and he’s most noted for his appearance on reality shows such as Celebrity Rehab or the one about his family- Stewarts and Hamiltons -which was canceled after 8 episodes.

WILL RAMI MALEK ROCK THE ACADEMY?

Our favorite winners at The Golden Globes were, hands down, Sandra Oh for the Killing Eve series and Rami Malek as Best Actor for Bohemian Rhapsody. The HFPA really got it right with these two, and Rami was a total and delightful surprise. Come to think of it, did ANY other leading man up for Best Actor this year deserve the award MORE than Rami? He had the difficult job of BECOMING an iconic rock star and his performance was flawless. Not only that, but the movie was universally appreciated and successful. We hope he gets an Oscar too.

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!
