When Katie Cringes, The Whole World Cringes With Her

tom_kat_main

Ugh, can you imagine waking up every morning with Tom Cruise‘s jowls hanging over you? That’s what poor Katie Holmes suffers through, with only a 1,000,000 thread blanket to hid under and shed her Xenu tears. So we couldn’t help but feel a little tug at the one heart-string we have left when we saw her awkwardly pose with her captor husband on the red carpet of The Romantics premiere. Yes, we know they popped a Suri out and have been grinning like this for 5 years, but we still don’t buy it. Eventually the crazy juice is gonna wear off and Katie is gonna wake up and run for the Hollywood Hills.

Katie’s castmates – Malin Ackerman, Josh “Where’s Fergie?” Duhamel – were also on hand for the big night, smiling uncomfortably for the cameras. Did everyone where clothes that were 2 sizes two small or do rich people just enjoy walking on eggshells? Pics below.

FABLife’s DVD Pick Of The Week

MacGruber

With his wide-eyed boyish enthusiasm, Will Forte was a valuable member of the Saturday Night Live line-up. Taking his super-agent MacGruber and turning him into a comic franchise, however, has the potential of stretching a single gag thinner than a dynamite fuse. This is SNL by the numbers, working a generic formula familiar to anybody who has seen a Will Ferrell movie. Like Rip Van Winkle, the shaggy-haired MacGruber must reconcile the ideals of the mid-’80s NBC primetime line-up with those of the present world. Val Kilmer is on hand to provide the menace courtesy of some C-list theatrics. So what’s new? Well, Forte, who co-wrote the film, jacks up the violence to R-rated levels and there are cameos by a gaggle of WWE wrestlers. Should they choose to accept it, the younger generation will find this an adequate time-waster between rounds of Call of Duty.

Extras: An “unrated” cut, gag reel, a deleted scene, and a cast/crew commentary.

Jimmy Fallon On Going The Distance: “Who Does Romantic Comedy Better Than Drew Barrymore?”

Enjoying the Labor Day weekend? Well, depending on the weather in your neighborhood, it’s not too late to check out Going The Distance, the new romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. At the world premiere of the film in Los Angeles last week, our own Janell Snowden — armed, as always, with her her trusty Samsung Epic™ 4G — caught up with Jimmy Fallon (who, once upon a time, starred opposite Drew in a romantic comedy himself!), Airborne Toxic Event and co-star Natalie Morales. Check out their thoughts on the film below!

Emma Watson Has Clearly Never Read Twilight

We are Harry Potter nerds, and as such, anyone involved in the franchise can do no wrong in our eyes. However, we found a quote from a recent interview with Emma Watson to be kind of peculiar. Emma explained the romantic element of the final Potter films, she said “This kiss between Hermione and Ron is highly anticipated, it’s been building up for eight films now. And Harry Potter is not Twilight, you know; we’re not selling sex.” Don’t get us wrong, we love everything about Emma, we love her new pixie hair, and mostly we love Hermione Granger, but we found this to be weird, since Twilight is 3,000 pages of sexual tension and about 2 pages of island sex.

These are the books where the main characters do it all of two times (in no gratuitous detail, thanks for nothing, Stephenie Meyer) before a monster starts growing inside Bella, trying to punch, kick and eat it’s way out.  Sure, there’s the mental image of Robert Pattinson biting his pillow to downy bits which we’d pay good money to see, but there’s only about 2% more sex in Twilight than there is in Harry Potter. Just, you know, to clarify. Of course we don’t blame Emma for not reading the books, girlfriend has movies to shoot and Ivy League universities to attend.

Black And White And Cher All Over

burlesque

The world has been waiting for Burlesque, the Cher-Christina Aguilera-sparkles-and-stripper-fest, to hit theaters in November. (And by “the world” we mean us, a few gay guys, and fans of Stanley Tucci.) First, we got the Showgirls-like trailer, and now we have the movie poster, which is a glistening piece of pop art. The razzle-dazzle! The hat tipped to one side! The luscious pink lips! And most of all, the way Cher and Xtina look exactly like women in the weird posters hanging in the hair salon we went to in 1989.

Not to mention, Christina’s rocking the Latisse lashes and beauty mark. God, this movie is already a cult classic and it hasn’t even come out yet.

Alexander Skarsgard Signs Up For The Big Screen

Alexander Skarsgard makes us want to throw whatever morality we have out of the window. In our defense, butts like that come along only once in a while, ‘kay? It’s no wonder then that this little nugget of information makes us exceedingly happy. Because more A.Skars equals more drool.

Our boyfriend (leave us alone, Kate Bosworth) is going to be on the big screen (squeal!). Apart from True Blood, Skarsgard has signed up for Battleship. You know, the super action-packed video game?  He revealed, “It’s quite different from the board game, obviously. Pete is a great guy — the director, Peter Berg — and I’m just excited to start it, I really am.” Not more excited than we are, trust us. They’re going to start shooting in Hawaii next week. Ah, shirtless Skarsgard, we welcome you. Sadly, you’ll have to wait until May, 2012 for his goodness to grace the big screen.

By the way, this movie seriously packs in the sexy. Because he co-stars with Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker and Taylor Kitsch. Can you feel the hotness? Maybe it’s a good thing it’s releasing in 2012…it gives us time to prepare ourselves for the sizzle!

Anne Hathaway’s New ‘Do – Love It Or Hate It?

SPL206148_017

We’re going to stay, straight up, that we’re feeling Anne Hathaway‘s new hair. The reason for the chopped locks is that she’s filming One Day in Paris with Jim Sturgess. The movie is adapted from the David Nicholls‘ eponymous, best-selling novel, BTW.

So, if the film is sticking to the book then the movie should start set in 1988 and then gradually progress to the 21st century. She does look retro here (outfit included), doesn’t she? Almost elfin. Seal of approval because not many actresses could carry off this look. Except Emma Watson.

Oh, to be a gazillion feet tall and a bazillion pounds lighter. It’s a big change but we’re digging it! Check out some of her past styles in the gallery below!

Update: Her publicist just went on record to say that this new ‘do, sadly, is just a wig.

FABLife’s DVD Picks Of The Week

Why Did I Get Married Too

After last week’s slim pickings–in which a crippled dog stole The Back-Up Plan from Jennifer Lopez–there’s some promising releases on the way. Writer/director/star Tyler Perry is on good melodramatic form with Why Did I Get Married Too, where four couples work out their differences on the Bahamas. Janet Jackson is the shrink who swaps her copy of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus for a golf club. Should Perry’s Southern-fried combo of couple’s retreat pray love get to be too much, audiences can divert themselves by contemplating extended views of Michael Jai White‘s six pack.

Check out our exclusive behind-the-scenes bonus clip!

Harry Brown

Harry Brown stars Michael Caine, who younger readers will recognize as the professor from Induction. The 77-year-old screen legend plays a retiree who cleans out a London housing estate after drug dealers kill his best friend. Reviews have indicated that Brown is closer to the gritty, violent Death Wish than Clint Eastwood‘s more somber Gran Torino. If vigilantes slurping stewed prunes is your bag, it should be worth a punt.
