Jamie Dornan is LOADED because of ‘Fifty Shades’

jamie dornan

We knew the stars of Fifty Shades of Grey had to be making a pretty penny, considering how much the movie is grossing worldwide, but just how rich is the BDSM-lite trilogy making our Christan Grey in real life? Well, a lot – but not actually that much if you think about it.

Apparently Jamie Dornan made a paltry $1.2 million for the first movie, which is great money to us laymen, but absolute shit in movie star money. I guess the studio got a little scared that their main man might pull out, though, because the sequel should earn him a cool $6.9 million – at least according to the Daily Star. A nice increase, for sure, but still not really a decent portion of the pie if you consider how much this franchise is raking in.

Here’s a quote from ~a source~ just for good measure: “Jamie has signed the deal and he’s thrilled, the money on offer was just too good. Jamie has made it known that doubts could be in place if Sam Taylor-Johnson [director] exits, but it’s just a ploy designed to put pressure on James and push her to loosen her grip. The truth is that Jamie plans to do all three, and very much with the backing of his family.”

Huh. Well, there ya go. You know his wife is gettin’ PAID for this bullshit, though.

Michelle Williams is very, very tired

michelle williams

Michelle Williams has been raising her daughter Matilda alone since the death of Heath Ledger back in 2008, and as all single parents can attest to out there, it ain’t easy. Of course, it’s probably a lot easier for people who have millions of dollars and can afford hired help, but Michelle has always come off as someone (and insisted she is someone) who wants to raise her daughter HERSELF rather than handing her over to nannies nonstop. That’s hard work, especially when you’re trying to fit movies into the equation, and basically it’s left Michelle feeling really, really sleepy.

From ELLE UK:

“I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working. I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered. It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities. So that leaves me feeling pretty exhausted.”

“I’m the person who falls asleep all the time. You invite me over for dinner or to a party, and there’s a whole scrapbook of pictures of me napping. I’ve even been given a nickname because of my snoring.”

Damn, girl – at least you even make it to the party. If someone starts something at, like, 9pm, I’m always like, “Seriously? I’m trying to be home in bed at 9pm!” Can’t be going to bed all hours of the night – those times in my life are long gone.

In any case, Matilda is 10 now, and from the photos I’ve seen on Google, she looks EXACTLY like her dad. Good for Michelle for putting her daughter before her career – especially since she’s so good at what she does. According to IMDB, she does have two movies in pre-production at the moment, though, so hopefully we’ll see some more work from her soon!

Surprise! Chris Brown is a father!

chris brown baby

Chris Brown has always wanted children – hell, he wanted to knock up both Rihanna and Karrueche at the same time since, you know, he was fucking them both simultaneously. It looks like this wish has already been granted, since TMZ found out that he actually has a 9-month-old daughter!

The baby’s mother is a 31-year-old former model named Nia  who we’re told has known Chris for several years.

Sources connected to both Nia and Chris tell us they are on very good terms — however they’re not together romantically. We’re told 25-year-old Chris is happy about being a father.

It does not appear there is a formal child support order in place — and we do not know the nature of any informal terms of support.

Yikes. If there’s anything worse than Chris Brown’s mere existence, it’s the thought of him fathering a child. Then again, biologically fathering a child and actually helping to raise it as an actual father are two totally different things, and unsurprisingly, it seems like he’s skipping out on he latter. Way to be a scumbag, Chris! Wouldn’t have expected anything less.

Then again, maybe this is the kindest thing he’s ever done – saving that poor child from himself.

Do you think Ashley Benson is a bitch?

ashley benson

If you answered yes to that question, you’re not alone, apparently. If you answered, “Who?” to that question, then you’re only slightly better off than me, who knows she was in that Spring Breakers travesty and is also on Pretty Little Liars, but it sorta ends there. But I digress. We’re here to talk about Ashley Benson‘s bitchiness, and apparently she’s got it in spades – at least according to… anyone who meets her.

From Wonderland:

“Weirdly, I’m shy,” she says. “When people first meet me, they always think that I’m a bitch. I always get called that. Always. Because I don’t talk. I get really nervous in public situations, but once you get to know me, I’m so outgoing, I’m so loud and bombastic. I have the biggest mouth. But [at first] I’m very closed off. I hold in emotions. I don’t like to be vulnerable, ever. But when you’re acting, you get to explore those feelings and those emotions and those moments. Acting is so fun. I love memorising lines and I love doing scenes.”

She sighs. “If I could work and not have anyone know who I am – I know it’s not possible – that would be my goal.”

Don’t you love when people pull the “I’m just here for the art!” lark? Ya, okay. I mean, whatever – maybe she is just a true artiste and fame gets in the way, but somehow I don’t buy it.

Anyhoo, here are some more pics of Ashley looking like a bitch moody and very fashionable from the shoot.

Can anyone tell me if Pretty Little Liars is worth binge watching? I just finished the third season of House of Cards and I’m desperate.

Vince Vaughn and Dave Franco create hilarious stock photos

unfinished business

Vince Vaughn and Dave Franco are about to release a new movie called Unfinished Business, and to promote the film, they joined up with some of the rest of the cast (and Getty Images) to create a hilarious set of stock photos that we’re all free to use however we’d like!

I’m not sure what’s most hilarious about this. Vince Vaughn’s hairpiece, the fact that he seems superimposed into all the images like he wasn’t really there to begin with, or the whole idea for this thing. I guess it’s all pretty great. Getty is licensing these for editorial use over the next three weeks, so let your heart run free!

unfinished business

More images below, but here’s a synopsis of the movie, if that’s your thing:

“What began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every imaginable—and unimaginable—way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit.”

Huh. It’s got potential but it could go either way, really.

Kylie Jenner on how she’s changed: ‘I gained 15 pounds’

kylie jenner

Kylie Jenner looks pretty much nothing like she looked a mere 9 months or so ago. In fact, now she’s just a carbon copy of big sister Kim with the possible butt implants to match. But if you were to ask Kylie how she’s changed during this past year, well, she’s only put on a little bit of weight.

She shared the below photo on Instagram this week with the caption “throwback to when I was 15 pounds skinnier & had a little blonde goin on”. Now, let’s all look at this photo and then back at the photo above. More has changed than her weight (which, btw, I think she looks better for now).

Cameron Diaz wants you to eat a piece of cake

cameron diaz

Cameron Diaz looks great – she’s fit, she seems healthy (you can’t tell this by looking at a person, but given the lifestyle she advocates, it points in that direction) and she’s happy to share her advice with the rest of us in a new interview with Cosmopolitan UK. Cameron’s approach to health and wellness is pretty simple: everything in moderation, basically. Oh, and make sure you exercise.

On exercise:

“You have to just do it. Once you commit and really put in the effort, your body goes, ‘Oh, it’s not OK to be without this.’ People say, ‘My body rejects exercise.’ No, it doesn’t.  Your mind rejects exercise.”

On diet:

“Wellbeing is an equation. Remember, you don’t have to have the whole cake, you can have a piece. Don’t deprive yourself. Have fun. Just be self-aware. If your equation is 80% good, 20% bad most of the time, then a little movement toward the centre isn’t going to affect you much,” she says.

On social media:

“I think social media is a crazy-ass experiment on society. The way people use it to get validation from abunch of strangers is dangerous. What’s the point?”

True! To… well, all of the above? I feel like it’s sorta common sense to be like, “Hey, move your body sometimes instead of being a couch potato, and maybe don’t gorge yourself on an entire cake!” Also, social media is totally bizarre and people definitely get addicted to it. I’m addicted to Instagram but I’m really only there for dog pictures and food pictures, so…
