Cannes film festival is going on right now in France and everyone is GLAMMED THE HELL UP. I like it. Here are the looks that stood out to me, for better or worse. But if you want to get right down to it:
BEST: Isla Fisher
WORST: Julianne Moore
I JUST DON’T KNOW: Zhang Yuqi
Carey Mulligan, seen here with Baz Luhrhraznamann. (Luhrmann). She looks gorgeous but holy hell, where’s the rest of her?? Is she okay? Does she know she’s allowed to smile? Even LANA DEL REY is smiling. Jesus.

I’ve never hard a lady boner for the original Carrie like so many horror fans seem to, but the remake due out later this year starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore actually looks alright. I wouldn’t go see it, but I’d at least torrent a decent cam version or something, and that’s high praise in my world.
Julianne Moore is a totally underrated actress and manages to tap into that peculiar creepiness of Carrie’s mother really well. Chloe Moretz is alright, as well, but when Julianne Moore is in something, you can pretty much guarantee she’s going to steal the show even if she’s not the lead.
Carrie is due out on October 18. What do you think – will you see it, or is this another unnecessary and totally shitty remake?

“I don’t think she’s a good interpreter of my mom. I think my mom is way hotter than that.”
- Bristol Palin discusses Julianne Moore‘s portrayal of Sarah Palin in that HBO movie, Game Change. Bristol went on to say that “I think she doesn’t have that accent. It’s kind of silly, but my mom’s awesome.”
Are we really doing this, Bristol? Is this seriously going to happen?
I didn’t see the movie, so I can’t really comment on Julianne’s acting (though she is a good actor, so, you know, there’s that), but as for the comment that Sarah Palin is “way hotter” than that? Girl. Bristol, honey. No. Just no.

No, haha, not at all. But wouldn’t that be something?
JGL and Julianne were photographed yesterday in New York City, presumably talking about their new movie, Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Jon’s Addiction. The film is about a porn-addicted character (portrayed by Joseph) who embarks on a quest to better himself and his circumstances. Scarlett Johansson was cast in one of the film’s leading roles, Julianne in another.
If the theme and the A-list movie stars don’t get you to see the movie, there is a caveat here that might change your mind—Tony Danza’s in it, and no, I have no f-cking clue why either. Maybe he’ll be JGL’s porn sponsor or something. I could see that.
Anyway, the new film is said to be taking up so much of Joseph’s valuable time that he ultimately dropped out of Quentin Tarantino’s new project, Django Unchained, a slave-era drama:
A rep for Joseph Gordon-Levitt has confirmed to EW that the actor has dropped out of Django Unchained, Tarantino’s upcoming slave-era drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx, due to a scheduling conflict with his feature directorial debut.
Gordon-Levitt was set to play a small supporting role in Django but knew that shooting might conflict with Don Jon’s Addiction, which he’ll be directing and starring in with Scarlett Johansson, according to a Deadline report from February. As it turns out, scheduling does in fact conflict, and Gordon-Levitt recently confirmed to MTV News, “No, I’m not going to get to do [Django]. I’d love to, but it just doesn’t work.”
Gordon-Levitt sadly won’t get to join the all-star cast, which includes DiCaprio, Waltz, Foxx, Kerry Washington, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson. The movie, set for a December 2012 release, tells the story of a slave turned bounty hunter (Foxx) who sets out to rescue his wife (Washington) from a ruthless plantation owner (DiCaprio).
So I guess that sounds pretty serious, then, right? Joseph has got some pretty high hopes riding on this new Scarlett Johansson-led movie that he’s directing, so much so that he’s willing to drop out of a lucrative film project (featuring people like Leonardo DiCaprio! Samuel L. Jackson! Jamie Foxx!) that probably would have assured his shaky place as an A-list actor. Hope you’re making the right decision, boyfriend. I’ll love you one way or the other, but the critics aren’t so friendly, you know.

OK, now. For real. Even if you can’t stand Sarah Palin (or, for that matter, the entire McCain camp), you have to admit: this looks like it’s going to be one good-assed movie. Ed Harris as John McCain? Hell. I see what Courtney Stodden saw now. Just in Ed Harris, and not John McCain, because that’s just gross, and anyway, I think Courtney Stodden just wants to be Cindy McCain. Heaven knows she’s on her way to looking just like her, right?
Anyway, yes, Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin? Meh. I would have preferred Tina Fey, naturally, but Julianne Moore’s good and solid. And Woody Harrelson? Hell. Anything with Woody Harrelson will be a four-star flick. I mean, have you even seen 2012? Case and point, friends.
Who else thinks this movie’s got an OK chance to totally kill it?

5Quotables: Julianne Moore’s Kids Probably Would Have Been Alright Even if She Didn’t Marry Their Daddy
“The only reason I got married in 2003 was for my children. I had a therapist who said marriage is really a container for a family and that made sense to me. Bart and I have been together for years. We have Caleb, 13, and our daughter Liv, who is eight.”
Julianne Moore, on the persuasion it took from her therapist to marry her children’s father for her children’s sake, which really brings up an interesting point – the very idea that some people are willing to sacrifice their romantic relationship satisfaction for an out-dated idea that a family absolutely has to be married by the church, or by a court of law, in order to be legit. Or authentic. Or whatever.
More often than not? In shitty, stay-together-for-the-kids relationships? It’s THE KIDS who are most affected. When two parents stick it out for any reason other than wanting to stick it out? It really never ends well for anyone, if it ends at all – and sometimes that in itself is just as damaging as ending badly.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m not anti-marriage by a long shot. And I think that EVERYONE, whatever their sexual orientation is, should be allowed to marry. But I also think that couples shouldn’t be pressured to marry because it’s either ‘right for the kids’ state of mind,’ or because it’s Just What People Do if They Want Kids. My bottom line? Getting married for any other reasons than love, mutual respect, and a desire to stay together for as long as remotely possible is just crap.
I like you, Julianne. And I’m glad that your situation’s working out for you these days. And because there might have been some undertones of trouble in your relationship, just based on your words, I wish you luck in either case. Just do me a favor – if shit rolls downhill, which sometimes, you know, happens, keep the kids out of it.
