JENNIFER LAWRENCE IS THE NEW FACE OF DIOR: Christian Dior has unveiled their new ads featuring Jennifer Lawrence promoting the designer’s Miss Dior handbag. It was announced last October that Lawrence would be replacing Mila Kunis as the face of the brand.
ROBERT PATTINSON DROPPED FROM NEW FILM: Robert Pattinson has been dropped from the film Unbound Captives because he is now too old for the role. Director Madeleine Stowe told HollywoodLife.com, “I love Rob so much, but he is now a man! And he was kind of a boy when we first got into this film, so we are on the hunt for a new Phineas right now, that is the piece of casting we are concerned about because Rachel Weisz is a part of the film as well.”
NBC CASTS LEAD FOR ‘CAMP’: Australian actor Tom Green has been cast as the lead in NBC’s 10-episode summer series Camp. The show is a one-hour dramedy about parents decompressing while their kids are off falling in and out of love at camp. Green will play Kip — a loner who likes indie rock and documentaries but hates people.
QUVENZHANE WALLIS CAST AS STAR OF ‘ANNIE’ REMAKE: Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis has officially signed on to play Annie in the upcoming remake being produced by Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, and Jay-Z. Willow Smith had initially been cast in the role but dropped out.
ABC EYEING ‘ONCE UPON A TIME’ SPINOFF: ABC is searching for an actor to replace Sebastian Stan as Mad Hatter on Once Upon A Time so they could potentially spin off the character for his own series. There was reportedly no space in Sebastian’s schedule for him to star in the potential series.
Was Paula Deen Drunk On Today?
Paula Deen acted a bit off while appearing on Today on Friday (February 22nd) which had a lot of people speculating that she was drunk. Paula and her son went on the show to talk about food but the conversation quickly took a strange turn.
Even before Paula and the hosts enjoyed some virgin mojitos, the chef performed an impromptu salsa dance and invited Al Roker to smell her hand for skunk spray. When the actual cooking segment began, Deen repeatedly announced that they were preparing chicken balls to which Roker told the audience, “Set your watches, that’s where it all went wrong.”
A rep for Paula told TMZ that the claim is ridiculous since she does not drink alcohol.
