Jamie Dornan wants out of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ sequels

jamie dornan fifty shades

Welp, can’t say this is at all surprising. First, franchise director Sam Taylor-Johnson tries to get out of her contract, and now Jamie Dornan is apparently desperate to avoid any further affiliation with the Fifty Shades of Grey movies and has no interest in portraying Christian Grey ever again. Uh oh…

From The Mirror:

The actor is thought to have stopped his brief relationship with the films early because his wife doesn’t want him to star in any more, it has been claimed.

Actress Amelia Warner, who has a 15-month-old daughter with the star, is said to be unhappy with him acting out the explicit sex scenes in the controversial film.

And Jamie, from Holywood, Co Down, has been left reeling by a barrage of scathing reviews for the movie adaptation of the risque S&M book.

Australian magazine NW claims the 32-year-old has told film bosses he won’t be back as kinky businessman Christian Grey for parts two and three.

While it might be true that Jamie’s wife isn’t really feeling the role, I feel like it’s far more likely that Jamie himself is sick of the bullshit – frankly, I think he probably was sick of it the second the ink dried on the contract. He actually IS a decent actor – again, see The Fall if you want to see the scope of his skills – so it was a bit disheartening to discover he’d taken on the roll at all. I know money talks, but absolute bullshit walks, and Fifty Shades certainly qualifies as bullshit (and that’s being kind).

What will be the biggest joke is that they’ll still make the second and third movies with another actor. Dakota Johnson will stay, of course, because she’s got the personality of wet cardboard and as much chance of getting a decent role otherwise as I have of being Taylor Swift‘s next BFF. In other words, she’s there to stay – how hard is it to bite your lip, anyway?

Patricia Arquette won bigtime at the Oscars… and then lost in the press room

patricia arquette

It was no surprise when Patricia Arquette won the Best Supporting Actress award at last night’s Oscars, but what was surprising – refreshingly so – was her speech, which included a call to arms for all women to stand up and demand equal pay and rights once and for all. Everyone was all for it – Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez in particular really seemed on board – because let’s face it, she’s got a great point. It seemed rather early on that Patricia Arquette was going to be the hero of the night.

And then came the post-ceremony interviews in the press room…

In case you can’t watch or are just too lazy (I feel you), here’s where problems arose:

“And, it’s time for all the women in America, and all the men that love women, and all the gay people, and all the people of color that we’ve all fought for, to fight for us now.”

Uh… I mean yeah, equality between the sexes is an important cause and something we really need to work towards, but really? “We helped you, black people – now do something for us white ladies” doesn’t really go over that well, especially considering white women still have it a LOT better than black women do in this country.

Did Patricia mean to be so thoughtless? Likely not, but people should really think more before they speak in future. Yikes!

Jack Osbourne and wife Lisa expecting second child

jack osbourne lisa stelly

I think this is absolutely adorable and I’m not quite sure why – Jack Osbourne and his wife Lisa announced this weekend that they’re expecting their second child together! The announcement came via a picture of Lisa with their 2-year-old daughter Pearl leaning against her belly bump and it’s just a lot of cuteness at once. I don’t know how Jack Osbourne and his wife manage to be cute where others would seem obnoxious as shit doing the same thing, but let’s just go with it.


Supprise!!!!! #round2 #babyinbound http://raddestmom.com/

This news is especially welcome for the couple since Lisa suffered a miscarriage in late 2013, and of course they’ve been dealing with Jack’s MS diagnosis (it’s currently in remission).

Lisa further elaborated on her website:

I’m pregnant! Pearl is very happy to become a big sister. She diligently reads her “I’m a big sister” books every night & recites to me her plans of bathing, feeding, singing to, and holding the baby. We are more than halfway through this thing & are very excited to be parents again! Thanks for all the well wishes :)

Very cute little family – congrats to them!

Kesha wants you to rescue kitty cats

kesha

Kesha has generally been keeping things low key, but she still wants to use her profile for something useful, like rescuing cute furry things! She stopped by Cosmopolitan while in NYC to visit some cats that need adopting from the Human Society of New York. What resulted was really adorable all around.

I’m more of a dog person myself, but I have had cats in life and I can’t resist any cute animals, so I love this.

You can relax now – Emma Watson isn’t really dating Prince Harry

prince harry emma watson

Just in case anyone actually believed the bullshit, I can tell you now once and for all that Emma Watson is NOT secretly dating Prince Harry or vice versa. After people started going batshit at the idea of Hermione becoming a princess, Emma herself took to Twitter to dispel the rumours and remind everyone to use their brains once in a while.



Well, duh. How did anyone even entertain this as anything more than the level of tabloid fodder you’d expect to find next to a feature about a woman who gave birth to a half lizard, half human baby? Are people really THAT stupid? (Don’t answer that question – it answers itself.)

Anyway, you know what that means, ladies – Harry’s still availableeeeee! Wouldn’t Kate Middleton be an awesome sister-in-law?

Nick Gordon won’t see Bobbi Kristina or talk to police

bobbi kristina nick gordon

Bobbi Kristina Brown‘s fake-husband-actually boyfriend Nick Gordon has been banned from the hospital where she’s currently in a coma, and he’s also under investigation by police for being an abusive prick. While Nick’s playing the part of the aggrieved lover rather unconvincingly, he’s not willing to meet Bobby Brown‘s demands for being allowed to see his beloved: talk to the police about the allegations against him.

From TMZ:

Brown lawyer says, “To address the continued and never ending media requests for comment about Mr. Gordon’s requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit.”

The lawyer won’t say what “term” Gordon must meet, but it’s pretty apparent.  TMZ broke the story there’s a criminal investigation because Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries when she was rushed to the hospital, and Nick is the target of the investigation.  Seems obvious … Brown wants Nick to talk to cops.

The lawyer certainly hinted he wants Nick to sit down with police, saying, “We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to the investigation.”

As far as we know Nick has not been interviewed by police and the investigation is ongoing.

Nick made a public plea Saturday night to allow him in the hospital, claiming he’s the one who can bring his girlfriend back to life, but Brown’s lawyer scoffs, saying, “Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe.”

Yikes. This whole situation is just awful all around and has no chance of ever getting any better. But how on earth is Nick being investigated, and yet he’s allowed to refuse to speak to police? Isn’t that… not optional at this point? What the hell kind of investigation is this, anyway?

If this asshole had nothing to hide, he’d be more than willing to speak to police, whether or not it was a condition of his ability to see his girlfriend. Fuck off with this dude.

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

And we thought Amal Clooney was going to be the only one to bring us ~~controversial gloves~~ at an awards ceremony. Well, Lady Gaga sure as shit isn’t going to let that happen. Look at how fucking determined she is to make these gloves a thing. She looks like she robbed Gaston. It’s a shame, because the dress isn’t actually that bad. Oh well.
