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.)

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – I think Juliette Lewis is kind of fabulous. I mean, she’s definitely a little on the thin side for my personal tastes, but I think she’s beautiful anyway, and she’s got that fiery personality that only adds to her appeal, in my opinion.
The above photo is from Nicole Richie‘s 30th birthday weekend, which was celebrated in Mexico. Juliette is only 39, and it completely amazes me that these two girls are only nine years apart. I mean, I remember vividly when Brad Pitt and Lewis dated, and I felt all of six years old during that time, but that might be because I, you know, was.
Looking good, girl!

I know it appears that I’m caving toward Jennifer Aniston by running the premiere photos of her latest romantic comedy, but I had to, guys. I absolutely had to. Juliette Lewis is in this movie — you know, the Juliette Lewis that used to have eye-rolling, head-lolling, crazy-bitch sex with Brad Pitt back in the day — and you know what? Juliette is looking good these days. Seriously, looking good.
And of course, Jennifer Aniston was there, and she looked like Jennifer Aniston, a woman that I never have been, nor will ever be, excited about for any reason, but Jon Heder was there, too. Why? Who knows. But having Napoleon Dynamite at your movie’s premiere is sure to bring the excitement, since the plot of the movie stinks (it’s about a woman who decides to get pregnant via turkey baster, but finds out that the sperm donation has been ‘switched’ — crafty how they did that).
More guests of note in the photo gallery? Alexandra Ella, with a tiny, tiny head; Scott Elrod, who’s barber missed a spot; Richard Portnow rocking turquoise Chucks; Ethan Suplee, who will always be remembered as the creepy goth dude in The Butterfly Effect, and various other photos of Jennifer Aniston looking all pouty because the male lead of the film (the cast member most likely to be the one that she’s ‘romantically linked’ with) had the — ugh — audacity to show up at the event with his wife.

Last night was the premiere of Drew Barrymore’s new movie and directorial debut, Whip It. She arrived on the red carpet fondling co-star Ellen Page and cuddling up with her old E.T. director, Steven Spielberg. Also there was Drew’s other co-star, Juliette “I Can’t Believe You And Your Yellow Teeth Were Once Engaged to Brad Pitt” Lewis and Barrymore’s Flower Films partner Nancy Juvonen (you may remember her for her controversial biceps). On-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Long was nowhere to be found.
Now, I know a lot of you thought it was just the result of some weight-loss, but I still think Drew’s face looks completely retooled ala PTA mom. Gladly, she listened to the masses and got rid of her two-tone hair.

Juliette Lewis and her band, The Licks, perform in Tokyo tonight (it’s already been tonight in Tokyo, right?). I guess after Brad Pitt dumps you there’s nowhere to go but crazy.
