Elizabeth Banks Shades Tara Reid But She’s Got A Point

elizabeth banks hollywood reporter

Pitch Perfect 2 is coming out soon, and people seem to be pretty stoked on it. I thought the first one was good, but not something I desperately needed a sequel to and can’t live without… but hey, to each her own. Elizabeth Banks directed the latest installment and she’s loving her new role behind the camera. She talked about this and other things – like how hard it is to be a woman getting older in Hollywood and how SOME PEOPLE, like, say, Tara Reid, just “didn’t make it”. SHADE!

From The Hollywood Reporter:

On Hollywood being difficult for ‘older’ actresses: “There was a group of us girls coming up. A lot of us are surviving. Some of us are not. I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know, we didn’t all make it. We’re not all still here – I do love Sharknado”

On being a female director: “The list of women who get to make studio-level films is very short. And I’m not quite in that club yet. Until this movie comes out, then we’ll see. This shoot is the test. I like to get A’s.”

On becoming the director of Pitch Perfect 2: “I went through no hoops for this particular job. I just put myself right at the spot where someone needed to be to get the job. And I prepared. I knew I wanted to direct, so I met DPs, I ran sets, I chose music. I went through the process of directing in little ways — nothing too big or risky or time-consuming. I just started really observing.”

On advice/challenges: “Some big actresses told me a few things that inspired me. One said that the biggest challenge for a female actress was to make sure they are not pro­foundly bored. Another told me to just do whatever you want — do anything. And another told me that her quote hadn’t changed in 15 years. That really lit a fire under my ass.”

Well, you can’t fault the woman for being honest. I don’t know that Tara Reid ever really had any kind of serious chops – comedy, acting, any of that – that would have let her really dominate in Hollywood, and she was always a bit too sloppy to hold it all together, anyway. Elizabeth has a natural charm and a very “girl next door” feeling about her, which gave her a foot in the door, but it did take her a while to get there. I like her, though. And I also like Sharknado.

Tara Reid posts naked selfie because… who knows why?

tara reid

I guess you can’t ride the wave (so to speak) of Sharknado – and your spinoff perfume inspired by the movie – forever, right? I mean, the need for renewed attention has to be the reason Tara Reid decided to post a naked selfie on Instagram this weekend.

The above photo was posted later, and was captioned, quite aptly, with, “I’m a mermaid.” That you are, Tara.

The whole naked thing is under the cut for those of you who might be at work or just want to save your eyes.

Tara Reid released a perfume called “Shark”

tara reid shark perfume

You’ve gotta hand it to Tara Reid – she’s certainly dedicated. She’s absolutely taken to her role in Sharknado and its sequel like… well, like a fish to water. She loves the movie, she thinks it could actually happen and apparently she’s so into it, she’s released her own perfume called “Shark”, which smells like lavender. The colour, that is – not the flower.

Here’s the description:

Shark by Tara is a light and refreshing perfume perfect for day-to-day wear. It also incorporates a plethora of “lavender” colored flowers, which is Tara’s favorite color, making them a true fit for Shark by Tara.

Shark by Tara perfume is a complex scent with three different levels of nodes that embrace our fresh, light, and fun feel. Our top-level node is clad with iced mint, violet and lemon, while our middle node is complete with jasmine, tuberose and muguet. The last dry node is cool blue rose, amber and musk.

“We hope you all have as much fun wearing it as we did making it!” – TaraLinz

Oh, dear. Keep in mind that no actual retailers are selling this – it’s only available on Tara’s website. On one hand, this could be a hilarious keepsake novelty item. On the other, it’s an absolute disaster that she seriously made a shark perfume. It’s taking things to a whole new level of crazy. And I sort of love it.

Tara Reid thinks a sharknado could really happen

sharknado

Oh, Tara Reid. All those years of narcotic and alcohol abuse really have made every last synapse in your brain misfire, haven’t they? You see, Tara managed to get herself a role in both Sharknado films (the fact that there are two of those makes me question the world, but that’s another story), and since she’s doing press for the sequel at the moment, she gets asked a lot about the ridiculous concept behind it. Let’s be clear, here: a “sharknado” is the combination of a great white shark and a tornado that goes around torturing everyone with its sheer meteorological-animal fierceness. And that’s something Tara thinks could happen in real life.

From GQ:

“You know, it actually can happen. I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually. Which is crazy. Not that it—the chances of it are, like, you know, it’s like probably ‘pigs could fly.’ Like, I don’t think pigs could fly, but actually sharks could be stuck in tornados. There could be a sharknado.”

Oh, dear. I have to say, Tara Reid’s brand of stupidity is one I can get behind. It doesn’t hurt anybody because she’s not in any kind of position of power, and it’s entertaining as hell because it’s so insane. Also, I still haven’t watched the first Sharknado and I feel like I need to get on that.

Jason Biggs Slams Tara Reid

Jason+Biggs

Jason Biggs surprised us all by revealing he’s actually not Jewish, and now he’s surprising us again — by saying some incredibly mean things about former co-star Tara Reid. Yeah, Tara’s been a hot mess, but she’s pulling it together and I don’t see the point in kicking someone when they’re down (or, getting up.) But Mr. Biggs disagrees.

While chatting with Joan Rivers on her latest talk show, he was asked to choose between Lindsay Lohan and Tara Reid in a segment called “Live Or Die.” Here’s his response, via E!:

Lindsay Lohan stays.

[...] she’s got nice boobs, she really does. Lindsay’s got nice boobs. Tara’s body—I don’t know what’s going on with it. I don’t think she ever knows what’s going on with it.

[...] Lindsay doesn’t know what’s going on with Tara’s body either. No one knows what’s going on with Tara’s body.

Dude, come on. That’s a bit much.

I think he went too far. What do you guys think?

Oh, Tara Reid. You Were Doing So Well Until You Said That.

Tara Reid, dear Tara. Oh, Tara. You were doing so well! You got yourself Sharknado, a cult classic in the making, fought against rumors that you were cut from the sequel (and won the fight, she wasn’t cut), and looked healthy and happy at the premiere. You were even the voice of REASON a few months ago when you spoke eloquently about Lindsay Lohan and her foolish antics. And then you went and said this, on the Discovery Channel’s Shark After Dark program, live.

I was like, all right, I don’t wanna, like, really sound stupid when I do this show today. So I learned a little education on sharks. I look up sharks on the internet and it’s like, “whale sharks”, and I’m like, oh that must mean a whale and a shark have sex. And I think, well, how does a whale and a shark have sex? And then I realized that whales are mammals, and sharks are animals, they have nothing to do with each other. So basically, the dolphins have sex with each other, but the sharks don’t. So I thought, then how is it such a thing?

She kept rambling, the audience laughed in a, “oh honey” sort of way, and the host made this face:

And Ian Ziering made this face:

It’s not the stupidest thing anyone’s ever said. She was having a classic Jessica Simpson moment. It’s just so unfortunate because she expressed at the top that she really, really didn’t want to sound stupid on the show.

Better luck next time, Team Tara! We appreciate your efforts.
