Jude Law’s newest baby-mama is only 23 years old & she’s ‘delighted’

Oct 21 2014 10:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some newish photos of Jude Law, on the Manchester, UK set of Genius. Genius is that film that Michael Fassbender was signed on to for months and months, I believe in the role Jude is now playing. Jude plays Thomas Wolfe and Colin Firth plays Wolfe’s editor, Max Perkins. It would have been interesting to see Fassy in this role, but Jude will probably do a good job. Jude has to keep on working, taking any project he can get, ...

16 (5) Deleted Scenes That Should Have Made The Final Cut

Sep 21 2014 4:52pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Deleted scenes are hard to avoid. It doesn’t always come down to a simple need for a shorter movie. Sometimes a scene can slow the pace down too much or not mesh tonally with the other sequences. No matter the reason why they were cut, there are deleted scenes that are so good that it’s hard to believe anyone could approve removing them. I understand that sometimes there isn’t a choice, but it’s still unfortunate.Though these g ...

James McAvoy covers Out Mag, is ambivalent about Scottish independence

Sep 16 2014 7:41am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

James McAvoy covers the new issue of Out Magazine to promote The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. This is the first interview/media piece where someone actually describes what happens in the film, so SPOILERZ if you want to know a major plotpoint: she gets pregnant and they lose the baby and they’re both left reeling. As for the rest of the interview… it’s really good. McAvoy is usually a good interview (as in, he likes to talk), but he’s usually bad with soundbytes an ...
