Here’s the ‘August: Osage County’ Trailer

I will turn up for pretty much anything Meryl Streep puts her name on because she’s a goddess, and despite the somewhat bizarre casting in August: Osage County, I will have to see this movie because it kinda works, actually. In case you don’t know anything about the story, it’s based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tracy Letts and it’s all about a dysfunctional family who reunites in Oklahoma when they’re forced to return for a funeral.

We’ve got Julia Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis… this has some serious potential. Well, now we’ve also got a trailer for the film, which comes out on November 8. What do you think? I’m so on board.

PS – did you guys know Abigail Breslin has a financial incentive clause written into her contract for the movie? She got paid $75,000 for working on the movie (which only took 2 weeks) but can apparently earn $50,000 more if she gets a Golden Globe for the role, and an additional $50,000 if she gets an Oscar. That’s such a weird clause, but I guess pretty clever? (Not gonna happen, though.)

Who Is The Fairest Of Them All: Julia Roberts Or Gwyneth Paltrow?

I guess my 1990′s time machine worked, because apparently Julia Roberts is mad at Gwyneth Paltrow for “winning” People‘s Most Beautiful Woman title. I can’t even get into how untrue this story is, but let’s pretend it is. Let’s pretend it’s 1998 and this stuff matters, and Julia Roberts cares and we care about Julia Roberts. From National Enquirer:

A source says Julia, 45, exploded when “People” magazine named Gwyneth, 40, its “Most Beautiful Woman” – and the “Pretty Woman” is plotting to kick the “Iron Man” babe to the curb.

“Julia’s won the magazine’s ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ title four times,” a source told The ENQUIRER.

“The last time was in 2010, and even though it was highly unlikely she’d be chosen again so soon, Julia got the shock of her life when Gwyneth got the nod. She thought a twenty-something actress like Jennifer Lawrence, not someone in her age group, would get it.”

We all want to believe that Hollywood is just like Mean Girls, don’t we? Seriously though, how f-cking archaic and stupid is it that People still does this Most Beautiful Woman thing?

For what it’s worth, I had a hard time finding a photo of the two of these ladies together. And when I did, it was the same one that appeared everywhere.

Anyway, this is the real winner right here:

Is Julia Roberts Going To Ruin A Wedding?

Julia Roberts gossip isn’t something you get a lot of these days, so I’m going to run with this, damn it.

Apparently Julia Roberts’ (technically half) sister, Nancy Motes, is getting married to Panda Express server turned Glee Production assistant John Dilbeck, and Ms. Roberts doesn’t want to be in the wedding because she doesn’t like Mr. Glee Express. And because of money issues. And because she thinks her sister is a backstabbing bitch. Those are my words, not hers. And it’s kind of a known thing in Hollywood that Julia Roberts is kind of a bitch so that doesn’t make this whole wedding situation any easier. And clearly, I am a bitch. So let’s figure out this whole bitch thing together.

From the National Enquirer (oh I’m doubting this already) via Daily Mail:

‘Julia doesn’t think much of Nancy’s husband-to-be,’ an insider told the National Enquirer.

‘She’s convinced he’s sponging off Nancy, who doesn’t have much money in the first place.

‘They moved out to L.A from Georgia, and John was working at a Panda Express restaurant.

‘But he quit the job after Nancy landed a gig as a production assistant on Glee.’

Julia apparently got her sister the position on the hit TV series after putting a word in with the show’s creator Ryan Murphy, who directed her in Eat, Pray, Love.

.. Julia is also concerned that she will end up being the one paying for the wedding.

This is story is actually sounding somewhat reasonable. Money and family do not mix very well. Then there’s the issue of her sister selling her out.

Julia and Nancy have a long history of tension between them after Nancy was reportedly caught taking pictures of the actress’s young twins Phinnaeus and Hazel at her home in New Mexico after they were born.

That is low. And it makes me wonder…is she leaking this story? Whoa!

Apparently Julia Roberts is worth $140 million so if I was her I would just pay for the whole damn wedding as a “now please leave me alone forever” trade-off.
