‘X-Men’ director Bryan Singer accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy

brian singer

Oh man, this one’s a doozy. A lawsuit was filed in Hawaii this week against X-Men director Brian Singer, claiming that he had sexually abused a 15-year-old aspiring actor at a party in Hollywood. This event apparently took place in the late 1990s and the victim is now in his 30s, which makes the whole thing kind of bizarre but not automatically untrue.

From the New York Daily News:

Singer had promised Egan a role in one of his movies and had numerous sexual encounters with the boy when he was 15 and 16, Herman told The News. Singer also allegedly brought Egan to Hawaii for multiple extended trips when he was 17.

The suit does not specifically demand a monetary figure, but states that the damages suffered warrant in excess of $75,000. In response, Marty Singer, a lawyer for the director, said “it is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity,” given that the newest installment of the “X-Men” franchise, “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” hits theaters May 23.

“The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit,” the statement added. “We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.”

Singer gave “an alcoholic beverage . . . and mentioned finding a role for him in an upcoming movie that he was directing,” the suit says. “Defendant Singer told plaintiff how ‘this group’ controls Hollywood.”

“Singer masturbated plaintiff and then performed oral sex upon him. Defendant Singer solicited plaintiff to perform oral sex upon him, which plaintiff resisted,” the suit says.

“Singer flagrantly disregarded plaintiff’s unwillingness to submit, and forced plaintiff’s head underwater to make plaintiff perform oral sex upon him. When plaintiff pulled his head out of the water in order to breathe, defendant Singer demanded that he continue which plaintiff refused,” the suit went on. “Defendant Singer then forced plaintiff to continue performing oral sex upon him outside of the pool, and subsequently forcibly sodomized plaintiff.”

Huh. I do agree that this definitely seems like a publicity attempt, but so many sexual assault victims are brushed off and it shouldn’t matter how long after the fact this happened that he comes forward, if it’s true – there is no statute of limitations on being abused. However, I really do hope the truth comes out on this – how awful!

Anna Paquin Got Cut From The X-Men Movie

anna-paquin-rogue

Anna Paquin shot a scene as the character Rogue for the upcoming X-Men movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, (lol wtf is that title) — but unfortunately, no one’s going to see it. At least, not in theaters. Director Bryan Singer hopes it will show up on DVD. Here’s why her scene — her one and only scene — got cut. As Singer told Entertainment Weekly,

Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous. It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.

She [Paquin] did a fantastic job. She was awesome in the sequence. She’s a brilliant actress. I would work with her in a heartbeat.

She completely understood [about the cut]. It’s very disappointing, but she’s very professional and she knows that stuff happens, particularly with material you shoot early on in production. Films evolve.

Bummer for her. And for fans? Will you guys miss her? I guess one bright side is she won’t have to promote the film and can spend more time with her twin babies.

Here are some supercute pics of her and husband Stephen Moyer (BIEEEELL) from earlier this month. They made my heart melt. Enjoy.

This Is A Joke, Right? Jennifer Lawrence Blue And Practically Naked For X-Men

jennifer lawrence mystique

Jennifer Lawrence calls herself “fat” for Hollywood, but is proud of her body (as she should be!) Here’s something to refresh your memory, in case you don’t remember this comment of hers. From EW.com:

In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.

Oh, girl, that’s mean. But she may not be saying about this about herself if not for idiots like Manohla Dargis of The New York Times who said,

A few years ago Ms. Lawrence might have looked hungry enough to play Katniss, but now, at 21, her seductive, womanly figure makes a bad fit for a dystopian fantasy about a people starved into submission.

Really sorry she didn’t Christian Bale it for you (talkin’ bout The Machinist). Also in the books Katniss was described as strong despite the lack of food because she would illegally hunt everyday for more food and –oh my God, listen to me, I’m gonna stop right here, I am NOT going to be the person who gets really into defending The Hunger Games.

The super cool Jeffrey Wells of Hollwood Elsewhere said she was “too big” for her male costar, adding,

She’s a fairly tall, big-boned lady (I’ve been in a hotel room with her) [...]

Cool, now let’s ask Jennifer Lawrence what she thought of you in that hotel room.

Then we have the awesome Justin Chang of Variety who said,

Hunger, the one constant in Katniss’ hard-scrabble life, barely even seems to register.

This is a snarky way of saying, “Fatass.” And it’s all so ridiculous because she used to model for Abercrombie & Fitch so how fat could she really be, considering we know how they feel about fat people?

What’s my damn point in sharing all of this? Because the lovely Lawrence clearly listened to this bullshit and lost all of her GROSS DISGUSTING FAT to slim down to play Mystique for the new X-Men movie.

If anything her former Hunger Games physique is perfect for Mystique, as the character is a mighty SUPER HERO. Then again, I get why Ms. Lawrence would feel pressure to slim down as her goddamn costume is PRACTICALLY NOTHING.

Look, I get it: this is how the Mystique character looks. Mystique is blue. But this is f-cking bullshit. In the comic book, Mystique actually wear clothes, and Hollywood can make the decision to say, hey, this is a reboot, let’s try something different, let’s not have our lead actress be practically naked in this one (Rebecca Romijn being the first naked Mystique). You never see male stars in ANYTHING like this. Like why don’t we see Spider-Man rocking a bulge in his skintight outfit but we practically see Jennifer Lawrence’s vagina?

You’re all going to argue with me and tell me I’m wrong anyway, so go for it.

Fun tidbit: January Jones was not invited back to reprise her character of Emma Frost for this film, and rumor is it’s because she had an affair with the director, Bryan Singer. Oh, and look, they managed to figure out a way to get her in sexy underwear for her role:

I’m sure it was crucial for the story.

I’ll get this started for you: “You’re taking this way too seriously” “You’re oversensitive” “It’s just a movie” “You’re probably ugly and/or jealous” “Ugh, why does everyone have to make everything a big deal” “I come here for celebrity gossip not for stuff like this I’m leaving” etc etc.

Are Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin dating?

jennifer lawrence chris martin

Well, this is one I didn’t see coming. Apparently Jennifer Lawrence and Coldplay frontman (and soon-to-be former Mr. Paltrow) Chris Martin are an item. As in, a romantic one. Say whaaaat? What world is this? How did this happen?

From E! News:

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are seeing each other, multiple sources confirm to E! News. We’re told that the pair has been spending quality together since late June after the Oscar winner split with her X-Men costar Nicholas Hoult.

Right, so basically we just have to take E!’s word for this because there is no corroborating evidence, no photos of them together, nothing. Still, I think I’m into this. I think Chris is an okay guy, Jennifer’s great, so why not? It’s so bizarre, but sometimes that’s the kind of pairing that works the best!

Who won at the Teen Choice Awards?

kardashians teen choice awards

Last night was the awards show that no one cares about, the Teen Choice Awards. It’s crazy because half the winners are people, shows or songs I’ve never even heard of or had no idea kids liked, but life is funny that way, I suppose. The full list of winners is behind the cut, but a few spoilers for you: people REALLY love Shailene Woodley, it seems, as well as everything having to do with The Hunger Games. Also, people seem to love Iggy Azalea and I’m not sure why.
