You can’t listen to what somebody tells you: ‘You’re not all this, and you’re not all that.’ I love it when somebody tells me that. I just sit there thinking, ‘You know what, darling? Watch me soar. Then sit back and eat my dust.’ And maybe, just maybe, they’ll say, ‘Hey, I was wrong about that dame.’”
Peter Fonda is apologizing for an overnight tweet that suggested people “rip Barron Trump from his mother's arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.”
The “Easy Rider” actor — who has a movie coming out Friday — has taken down the all-caps post, which he sent to his roughly 50,000 followers around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning.
“I tweeted something highly inappropriate and vulgar about the president and his family in response to the devastating images I was seeing on television,” Fonda, 78, said Wednesday via his rep. “Like many Americans, I am very impassioned and distraught over the situation with children separated from their families at the border, but I went way too far.”
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Wednesday that Jennifer Todd has won a runoff election for a seat on the group’s 54-member board of governors representing the producers branch.
Todd, whose credits include the “Austin Powers” movies and “Alice in Wonderland,” has co-produced the last two Oscars telecasts. She had tied in the first round of voting with producer Jason Blum, whose Blumhouse Productions is a major player in the horror genre (and produced last year’s best picture nominee “Get Out”).
With Todd’s win, the current board of governors includes 22 women — among them, Laura Dern, Annette Bening and Whoopi Goldberg.
“People like me live in the past.” These words from Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa set the mood in the first trailer for “Creed II,” which reveals that Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Johnson will have to confront a figure from his father’s past in the sequel.
Set to Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA,” the footage released Wednesday confirms that this eighth installment of the “Rocky” franchise draws on events from “Rocky IV” for the next chapter of Adonis’ journey. In “Creed II” he will face off against Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), the boxer who killed his father.
The trailer shows that both Rocky and Adonis’ stepmother (Phylicia Rashad) want to avoid any possibility of history repeating itself, but for Adonis, “this is more than just a fight.”
“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” in theaters Friday, reportedly removed a scene in which a character identifies as a lesbian. It’s the latest example of Hollywood skirting LGBTQ representation on the big screen in major blockbusters.
News of the cut scene came from Daniella Pineda, who plays the character in question, Zia Rodriguez. During an interview with Build, she revealed that a particular line was cut “for sake of time.”
“I look at Chris [Pratt], and I’m like, ‘Yeah … square jaw, good bone structure, tall, muscles — I don’t date men, but if I did, it would be you,’ ” she said. “It was cool because it was a little insight into my character … but they cut it.”
