I’ve said it before and I will say it again: if I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety.
Actress Jodie Foster • Defending fellow-actress Kristen Stewart, and any public figure who found themselves in the spotlight at a young age, while also warning the parents of would-be actors and actresses. Foster, a close friend of Stewart after their work on the 2002 film ‘Panic Room’, wrote a column for The Daily Beast on the possibility of stars leading normal and/or private lives. Considering she’s one of Hollywood’s most experienced actresses — with 46 years under her belt after starting at the young age of 3 — Foster’s work offers a unique perspective from someone on the receiving end of societal scrutiny.  source (viafollow)

Ashton Kutcher to star in indie film about Steve Jobs’ life: Surprisingly, although this story was originally published on Sunday by Variety, this isn’t an elaborate April Fools’ joke. The film, “Jobs,” will cover the Apple co-founder’s life from the 1970s to the ’90s. Maybe this casting decision makes sense, seeing as Kutcher is one of the more technologically profound members of Hollywood. source

How a Japanese franchise benefited from “The Hunger Games”

"Hunger Games" gives "Battle Royale" a boost: Many folks are comparing the overall plot of Suzanne Collins’ series to a Japanese book and movie.

Awesome: Random dude inherits Hollywood star’s old cell phone number
A few weeks old, but too good not to post: What happens when you get a new cell phone previously owned by a well-connected Hollywood actor? That’s what happened to a middle-aged dude named Bob Gray (center), who moved to California and got a new cell phone with his girlfriend Liza Foster (right). It was obvious that someone famous owned the number before him — because he kept getting invited to parties, including Paris Hilton’s birthday party. In a fitting end to this Happy Madison-like tale, Adam Sandler himself called the number and told Gray he inherited the cell phone number of Nick Swardson, a regular in Sandler’s movies who most recently starred in “Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star.” (Too bad it wasn’t like Sean Penn, but not bad either way.) Gray plans to write a screenplay about this, because … um, wouldn’t you? source

RIP Sidney Lumet: Legendary Hollywood director dies at 86: “I’m mad as hell and can’t take it anymore.” Know that movie (“Network”)? This was the guy who made it. He also made many other great ones. No non-lifetime-achievement Oscars though … sigh. source
