Julie Walters: I want to work with Woody Allen

Dec 9 2013, 3:38am CST | by Bang Showbiz

Julie Walters wants to work with Woody Allen.

The 63-year-old actress was presented with the Outstanding Contribution to Film prize at the British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs) on Sunday night (12.08.13), an honor she described as very "special".

Although Julie has achieved so much during her career - which has spanned over 40 years - she admits there are still directors she would like to work with and Woody is top of her list.

Speaking at the ceremony held at Old Billingsgate Market in London, she told BANG Showbiz: "People like Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, there are loads of people.

"But usually I like to see a script, I don't think I must work with someone or I must play a certain part. Then I think, 'Who's going to be directing it?', 'Who's in it, are they gits.'"

Julie also praised the event for shining a "light on British film" and for being a "platform for new talent".

The star also admitted she "felt her age" playing a grandmother in the upcoming 'Harry Hill Movie'.

She quipped: "It was heaven, just mad fun, he's another lovely bloke, unassuming and clever, we were like a double-act. I played his nan, which would make me 103 in real life.

"It was just brilliant, but very hard work though, that made me feel my age, in every day, long hours, but lovely."

Other winners at the BIFAs included James McAvoy, who took home the Best Actor prize for his performance in 'Filth', while Lindsay Duncan picked up the Best Actress gong for 'Le Week-End'.

Emma Stone goes vintage-y in Chloe at Paris premiere: lovely or bland?

Sep 12 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos from last night’s Paris premiere of Woody Allen’s Magic In the Moonlight. Emma Stone is Woody’s newest muse – I guess he’s done with Scarlett Johansson (they hasn’t worked together in a while, actually). In Magic In the Moonlight, a period film set in the 1920s (?), Emma plays some kind of psychic/seer/con-artist and Colin Firth is tasked with proving that she’s a fraud, except he falls in love with her. Emma has been filming a new Woody Allen movie with Joaquin Ph ...

Lena Dunham slept in her parents’ bed every night until she was 12 years old

Sep 11 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I was reading through this profile of Lena Dunham in the New York Times last night for the hell of it. I thought it was just going to be another bewildering, eye-rolly, gushing piece about how Lena Dunham is the brightest, most amazing talent ever, complete with comparisons to Joan Didion (I kid you not), Woody Allen (ha), Dorothy Parker (NO), Nora Ephron (you’re joking) and Helen Gurley Brown (ugh). I didn’t believe it was worth covering until I got to some particular quotes and anecdote ...

Bill Hader Interviewed by Danny McBride for INTERVIEW Magazine

Sep 2 2014 2:44pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

In movies like Superbad (2007), and 2008's trifecta of Tropic Thunder, Pineapple Express, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Hader grew into a kind of comedic "Hey, that guy!" He was recognizable as he delivered a message or a memorable punch line, but then duly departed. As his fame grew, so too did his opportunities and his impact on the films in which he appeared—his Andy Warhol in Men in Black 3 (2012), for example, ...

Aug 29 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Marvel’s Doctor Strange project has been the subject of rumors and rumor-mongering for what feels like FOREVER. We’ve heard so many names associated with the role: Benedict Cumberbatch, Johnny Depp, Tom Hardy, Jack Huston and as of late, Joaquin Phoenix. It’s looking more and more like Joaquin scored the role too. Collider had an exclusive yesterday about Joaquin being in final talks for the role: Given the cloud of secrecy that surrounds each and every Marvel Stu ...

Mann Power: Jamie Blackley Interviewed

Aug 28 2014 8:51am CDT | Source: Clash Music

British actor on If I Stay and working with Woody Allen...“It’s probably just because I wear tight jeans,” laughs 23-year-old actor Jamie Blackley when asked why the world of rock ‘n’ roll has become such a recurrent theme in his evolving body of work. He could hardly be immodest enough to go into detail. With dark, inquisitive eyes framed by thick slugs of ’brows, he has the ability to switch his look at will between teen heartthrob and wiry rock star, while his performances exude an a ...

Magic in the Moonlight: Dim results

Aug 22 2014 12:10pm CDT | Source: Charlotte Creative Loafing

Rating: ** by Matt Brunson MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT ** DIRECTED BY Woody Allen STARS Colin Firth, Emma Stone An inconsequential trifle even by late-career standards, Magic in the Moonlight finds Woody Allen attempting to once again create movie magic; only instead of akin to pulling a rabbit out of a hat, it feels like the workaholic auteur merely plucked an old, discarded script out of a cobweb-covered drawer.… ...
