Lindsay Lohan & Charlie Sheen went to the ‘Scary Movie 5′ premiere together

Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan and her “date” Charlie Sheen at last night’s premiere of Scary Movie 5 in LA. LL wore a little black dress that wasn’t awful and she let Charlie grope her on the red carpet (and probably off the carpet too). I didn’t want to scare it away, but I noticed something weird earlier this week in the video of Lindsay’s Letterman interview: does anyone else think she might have eased back on the lip injections to her upper lip? It doesn’t look so gross and puffy in these photos. But! I think she’s injecting more crap into the lower lip. Whatever.

Charlie and LL were always going to go to the premiere as “dates” – it was announced last week I think. I do find it funny that Lindsay was a cracked-out disaster while filming her part in Scary Movie 5 (I think she filmed for like three days or something), and now she’s rolling up to the premiere like she’s THE STAR. Like this is her big comeback role or something. Charlie was recently on The Tonight Show and he talked about what a disaster she was while filming Anger Management too – go here to read about that.

What else is there to say about Lohan at this point? We’ll less than a month away from her mandatory, court-ordered rehab but she’s still got time to go to Coachella. I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots of photos of her looking cracked-out at Coachella, but to be fair to her, everybody looks pretty crackie at Coachella.

We’ve also discovered where Lohan will be going to rehab – it’s a place called the Seafield Center in Westhampton. Yes, Lohan managed to get court-ordered rehab in the Hamptons. Over the summer months. I can’t. According to TMZ, Seafield is not a lockdown facility, but if Lohan walks out, her judge and the prosecutors will be notified. There are 24-hour guards and heavy surveillance – which should be good in case Lindsay literally tries to break her way out of rehab. What else? The rehab costs $4,025 a week, so her 90 day stay will cost $51,750. Oh, and she won’t be able to smoke, or use her cell phone. And she has to dress appropriately. Mark Heller (her dumb lawyer) claims that Seafield isn’t for sure, but I think TMZ is getting this straight from Lohan. Here’s one last fun fact: Michael Lohan went to the same rehab in 1989. He got sober for a hot minute and then went back to coke & booze party times.

‘Homeland’ season 2 finale: suspend your disbelief & discuss (major spoilers)

wenn4090185

THIS IS A POST FULL OF SPOILERS

BEWARE SPOILERS

SPOILERS FOR LAST NIGHT’S HOMELAND FINALE

I might go through Homeland withdrawal now. I waited for Season 2 to start for a year, and when it finally did, it was like a series of gut-punches. Monday mornings, I was always out of it because I couldn’t get to sleep after watching Homeland. For the record, I think the first season probably had stronger writing overall, and it felt like there was so much more in Season 2 which we all had to suspend our disbelief. Like, I’m no expert on security and the Secret Service and all of that, but even I know that Brody wouldn’t have had access to all of the stuff he had access to, and there were too many “O RLY?” leaps that the audience had to make to stay engaged in the story.

But let’s really talk about what went down. 200-plus dead at the CIA. Carrie helping a suspected terrorist (Brody) get across the border (on foot?). Brody was played by Nazir. We all were. The cell which was caught several episodes ago was sacrificed for a larger purpose, to manipulate Brody and Carrie into killing the vice president. What we found out in the finale was that the vice president’s death was merely the instigator for a larger attack, the bombing of Langley. Some various points/thoughts/questions:

*So, Walden’s memorial service was being held at Langley? He was a sitting vice president and the presumptive presidential nominee – his memorial would have been held at Washington National Cathedral. The end. I don’t care if he was the former DCI (Director of Central Intelligence). It still would have been held at Washington National Cathedral.

*I loved everything about the scenes with Brody and Carrie at the cabin the woods. Damian Lewis and Claire Danes have an extraordinary amount of chemistry, and whenever they are together, it just feels natural, no matter what.

*Brody praying in daylight… with Quinn standing behind him with the gun. I’m sorry, but I loved everything about the Quinn character’s arc. I loved that Quinn made a choice for himself as to what kind of man he is. I love that Quinn went to Estes’ house and threatened him. I loved everything about Quinn’s speech to Estes about killing bad men.

*CB and I have debated in the past whether Estes was one of Nazir’s moles. I guess we can say definitely that he wasn’t, right? I don’t believe Estes would have sacrificed himself like that for Nazir’s greater cause. That being said, there HAS to be a significant mole in the CIA. Setting up Brody as Nazir’s patsy, moving the car and bringing that much C4 into Langley (a hella secure area) would have taken an insider. But did that insider sacrifice himself (or herself)? Or does the mole still walk among them?

*How much did Brody know about THIS plot? We really don’t know. I think he knew more than he was saying, but he might not have known all of the moving pieces.

*I love that Carrie always had an exit strategy. All of this time, she always had a way out in case she was burned.

*SAUL!!!!!!! I love everything about Saul. I love Saul and Carrie’s conversation about whether she would be made a station chief. I love Saul’s call to Carrie, the message he left for her. I love his face when she appeared at the staging hanger (God, how awful was that?). I love that Saul is the presumptive CIA director now.

*Seriously, where the f—k is the president?! The president didn’t even come to thememorial service of his vice president?

*I really hope Rupert Friend gets invited back for the third season, because he is a gem.

*You could really tell that Claire Danes is pregnant in these last few episodes. Her face looked so much fuller, and she just glowed.

*SARITA CHOUDHURY!!!! I’m so glad she came back and did a cameo. I missed her.

*I love the respectful way they handled Nazir’s burial at sea. It matters.

Kristen Stewart on wanting babies: ‘I can’t wait to be a mom, but like, no. I can wait’

 

Twihards are a fickle bunch. That’s what I’m finding out more and more. There are the “Robsten 4 Eva” Twihards who are obsessed with all things “Rob & Kristen are together, and anyone who says anything different is the enemy.” Those people hate me. Then there are the pro-Kristen Twihards who want to make her into a delicate flower, a chastened victim, a child who is blameless, distraught, bullied and passive. Those people hate me too. Then there are the pro-Rob Twihards who think Kristen is a bitch-troll and Rob is a delicate, sensitive boy who is being manipulated and used by an evil studio and cheating, lying fake-girlfriend. Honestly, I had the support of those people for a little while, but if my Twitter is any indication, I lost that contingent yesterday when I wrote that “I now buy the idea that they’re trying to make it work.”Yeah… I still think that. I’m sorry pro-Rob people, but I’ve really begun to think that Rob has completely given up his Man Card and he’s actively participating in this relationship/fauxmance/whatever.

I also want to clarify one more thing for the Twihards who fault me for choosing “the worst photos of Kristen”. Dear Twihards: I’m really not putting that much thought into it. I’m sorry, but you have to deal with the fact that sometimes your girl looks like ten kinds of hell, and that at some events, there just aren’t any “good” photos of her. Sorry.

Now, with all of that in mind, I’d like to cover some recent quotes from Kristen which I found interesting. Kristen – for good and for bad – is a talker. She loves to run her mouth in an interview or press conference or junket, and I appreciate the fact that she’s always good for a soundbyte, although I do think she should learn to hush sometimes for her own good. We’ve been inundated with new quotes from Kristen, and I just thought you’d enjoy these stories. First one: Kristen and Rob talk babies!

Kristen Stewart is looking forward to motherhood . . . she just doesn’t want it right now! During a press junket in Los Angeles Thursday, Nov. 1 for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Stewart gave an honest answer about her hopes to one day be a mom.

When a reporter asked the 22-year-old actress if she’s ready to have her own kids, Stewart replied, “Dude, no. I can’t wait to be a mom, but like, no. I can wait.”

While she may not be in a rush to jump into real-life parenthood with boyfriend Robert Pattinson, Stewart did enjoy playing parents to daughter Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), Bella and Edward’s daughter in the film.

“I think that it might be something that you’re born with or not born with. Somepeople have really, really strong natural instincts and desires to be a mom. That was one of my favorite things about the story,” she explained. “It was one aspect of [Bella] that I was really excited to play.”

And Pattinson, 26, similarly had no problem taking on the role of a father.

“I actually quite like working with kids and I like working with animals, which everybody says you shouldn’t do,” he said. “Especially working with a baby is great. I would say, put a baby in every scene.”

Although neither one of them minded having a baby in the film, the couple found the baby-making scenes more than a little stressful!

Stewart told E! News that their vampire sex scene was “awful” to film because they had to “look directly into the camera instead of at each other.” And Pattinson told E! News that the horde of cast and crew members killed the mood. “Vampire sex is supposed to be the greatest sex in the world, and then everyone turns up on set and they’re like, ‘OK, well, uh, what’s your thing?’” he shared. “It’s, like, completely crazy!”

During his press conferences Thursday, Pattinson also joked that if he could prepare for the first Twilight film over again, he would “start drinking vodka instead of beer, and try to get a six-pack as early as possible because you’ll be a much more successful actor.”

[From Us Weekly]

As always, Rob comes across as the baby-and-animal loving gentle soul and Kristen is a harridan who refuses to give her boyfriend the babies he wants! I do like that Kristen shut down speculation about babies, though. It would have been really easy for her to play the “I don’t know, maybe babies!” card.

The other story I liked was Kristen’s recent confession that she had “kept” (re: taken from the set in a Lohan-esque crack thievery!) the all-important rings from the Twilight series. Kristen said, “I kept the rings. The rings are really important to me. [Bella’s] mother gives her a moon ring in the beginning. It fully and completely reminds me of [Twilight director] Catherine Hardwicke.” When asked about Bella’s engagement ring, Kristen said, “Yeah, I have that too. I held onto that one.” Kristen is a LOHAN! While I don’t doubt that the studio probably would have (or did) “gift” those rings to her, I have to think that those are two of the most valuable pieces of recent film history. Two years, five years from now, if Kristen auctioned those pieces off, they would be worth a fortune to some Twihard-y collector.

‘Mad Men’ season 5 finale: The more things change, the more they stay the same


***This post is an enormous spoiler for last night’s season finale of Mad Men, as well as a spoiler for the whole season.

Last week, I talked about the two episodes leading up to last night’s season 5 finale ofMad Men. I thought those two episodes – the one about Joan selling her body for a piece of the company and the one about The Fall of Lane Pryce – were two of the best episodes of Mad Men ever. They were well-written, beautifully acted, and absolutely devastating. Last night’s finale wasn’t what I was expecting, and I didn’t care for some parts of it, but I have a better feeling for where all of the main characters are going, and how they’ll all be staying in the same place – which is one of the central themes ofMad Men. You can steal a dead man’s identity, you can remake yourself into one of the brilliant ad men in the business, but you’re still the same whore-child.

Considering how little Megan had been in the past two episodes, I was prepared for a Megan storyline in the finale, but I was still annoyed by her increasingly immature presence. Megan came full-circle – we thought she was just a silly secretary, then we thought she could be an equal partner to Don, and now we’re back to thinking that she’s just some immature ditz. She’s a lot like Betty, isn’t she? Immature, spoiled, dreaming of grandeur without wanting to put in the time and effort to make it happen on real terms. I loved when Don told her (paraphrasing): “You don’t want it like this – you want to be discovered, you don’t want to make it as my wife.” There was a sadness to Don as he watched his wife’s reel – he liked watching her. He likes pretty things. He thinks she has “it” and he wants her to succeed. But he learned something about himself too – he loves those infantilized women, doesn’t he?

Can I just say – I love the guest appearances by Julia Ormond. What a great, interesting, fully developed character for her to come in and play in the Mad Menuniverse. I loved Ormond’s scene with John Slattery (Roger) in bed. I love that those two characters are hot for each other. I loved when Ormond’s character called her daughter a spoiled, ungrateful little bitch. Because Megan totally is.

I’m so glad that Peggy was back in the finale. I’m glad we got to see her working at her new agency. And I almost cried when Peggy and Don ran into each other at the movietheater and Peggy jumped up to embrace him. I love that she’s working on a cigarette campaign (Virginia Slims, right?). I love that Peggy and Don can always talk to each other and neither of them was holding a grudge.

As for the Pete Campbell situation and the return of Alexis Bledel’s character – I still don’t get it. It’s like her character stepped out of a completely different show – a showbased on the unpublished works of Sylvia Plath, perhaps. I really just think the show is emphasizing how much Season 5 Pete = Season 1 Don. Pete is unhappy. He’s bitter, he’s nasty, he’s grown into a petty, unfulfilled man. But he despises weakness, so he’s not going to kill himself or anything. He’s just going to get an apartment in the city and his marriage will deteriorate and then he’ll just be a mini-Don. And it looks like Don is going back to his old ways too, isn’t it? Don has realized that he married another silly woman who will ultimately leave him spiritually unfulfilled, so what now? A bar, a smoke, and a proposition from a pretty girl.

Basically, I was kind of disappointed with how everything ended but I think they’re setting things up nicely for the next season.

Kristen Stewart vs. Charlize Theron: who looked better at the UK ‘SWATH’ premiere?


These are photos from last night’s premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman. I know I’m supposed to be all excited about Charlize Theron’s Dior gown, but I’m really not feeling it. Obviously, I hate Kristen Stewart’s Marchesa monstrosity too, but I feel like both looks are failures in their own ways, and both reflect rather poorly on the women. (By the way, I’m barely acknowledging Chris Hemsworth – it’s not that I dislike the man or anything, it’s just that he’s simply not as interesting as the ladies.)

So, Kristen in Marchesa. Obviously, this thing is just awful. Marchesa is always awful, always tacky, always budget, and often Marchesa gowns look like glorified ice skaters’ leotards. But!! Jennifer Lawrence wore a horrible Marchesa gown during the promotionof The Hunger Games, and I find myself feeling the same way towards K-Stew now – she’s young. She was told to wear this by some studio stylist, probably. Maybe this was a teachable moment for her sartorially. I also find it interesting that Balenciaga is not dressing their current and newest “face” for the SWATH promotional trail. I’m sure she’ll be wearing Balenciaga for the Cannes Film Festival, but it would have been nice to see a preview for this premiere. Something nice: I like Kristen’s makeup here.

As for Charlize in Dior – she’s one of the (bitch)faces of Dior, obviously. She has her pick of Dior gowns. I would imagine that Charlize and Kristen coordinated on some level – I mean, what are the chances that both women would wear black gowns with sheer skirts? Obviously, Charlize’s gown has much better construction and it’s just a more flattering look… but I still don’t love it. I think the completely sheer skirt is kind of tacky. And I think her styling is overdone. I’ve always said that Abbie Cornish looks like a budget Charlize… but now Charlize looks like a budget Abbie Cornish. WTF?

Scarlett Johansson in black Versace at ‘The Avengers’ premiere: pretty or boring?


Last night was the LA premiere of The Avengers, and before I write up all of the hot dudes that were there (Skarsgard, Downey, Hiddleston, Renner, et al), let’s just have a moment where we talk about “the girl” in the movie, Scarlett Johansson. Scar is playing Black Widow, obviously, and after releasing several trailers in which Black Widow was not allowed to speak, a Black Widow-centric clip of the film was finally released. And it was very jiggly. Now, Black Widow may or may not kick major ass in the film. But I kind of think Scarlett was just hired because without her, the whole thing would have just been a balls-out sausage party.

So, did Scarlett dress the part of “the T&A” for the premiere? Scarlett wore thisVersace gown, and I swear she’s worn a similar dress in white at some point. I remember this silhouette on her. I’m not crazy about the dress, honestly. It’s not actively bad, but it doesn’t do much for Scarlett’s figure – beyond making her look really slender. I feel like she’s lost so much weight over the past year. I do love that she’s back to this dirty-blonde, though. It suits her more than any other hair color. And her makeup looks good here too.
