(Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

By Jared Jones

The “Nudity = Oscar” formula of the Academy Awards is one that has been long understood by Hollywood actresses of even the highest caliber, and one that can be traced back to mid 1960s. While the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences likes to pride itself on being the most progressive, forward-thinking panel of fart-sniffing intellectuals in the country, the reality is that the Oscars serve as little more than a dolled up, 25 cent peep show wherein we all gather to perv out on some high-class ass in the name of “art.” (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

Reese Witherspoon will attempt to follow in the footsteps of countless actresses before her by baring it all in the most Oscar-baity movie of the year, Wild, which receives a limited release this weekend. Having already scored an Academy Award for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line, one could argue that Mrs. Witherspoon need not resort to such exploitative means to win a silly award. On the other hand, YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH RIGHT NOW.

If Reese wants to drop trou in the hopes of achieving Oscar glory once again, then we say she has every right to, dammit. Besides, you can’t fault her for following a simple formula. Just look at some of the actresses before her who did the same…

Halle Berry, Monster’s Ball

Halle Berry’s performance in Monster’s Ball has set something of a standard for modern actresses hoping to earn Oscar recognition through nudity. It is the nude scene to which all other nude scenes draw comparison, and rightfully so. Here you had one of the most beautiful women on the planet — and one who had allegedly been paid half a million dollars to go topless in Swordfish the same year — baring it all in a complex, passionate love scene, and the only downside was that you had to see Billy Bob Thornton’s wrinkly old ass for a few seconds.

Moviegoers and critics alike rightfully lost their goddamn minds at the sight of Berry’s…berries (as Mr. Skin would probably put it). Where was once a fairly mediocre drama about grief and dealing with loss now stood a “raw, uncompromising character study” that scored Berry the Oscar for Best Actress, making her the first African American to achieve such an honor.

Charlize Theron, Monster

Not all nudity has to be sexy, and if you don’t believe me, look no further than Charlize Theron’s transformation into Aileen Wuornos for 2003′s Monster. Theron gained some 30 pounds to portray the now infamous serial killer, which, in a world where Jennifer Aniston is being called “brave” for not wearing makeup, is one hell of a feat. And for her willingness to plump up her immaculate figure and hug Christina Ricci while topless, Theron received a Best Actress Golden Globe. “Nudity comes in all shapes and sizes,” said Academy president Chester Tophat following Theron’s win, “It can be enticing, it can be horrifying. But rest assured, we want to see it all the same.”

Gwyneth Paltrow, Shakespeare In Love

Again, the formula is simple:

Step 1: Get Naked

Step 2: ???

Step 3: Profit

In 1998′s Shakespeare In Love, Paltrow followed it to a tee as Viola de Lesseps, the imaginary lover and muse of William Shakespeare while he was writing Romeo & Juliet. While Paltrow is by all means a gorgeous woman with a great body, I think we can all agree that the film would’ve been much hotter had the role gone a different member of the cast: Dame Judi Dench.

Kate Winslet, The Reader

Hollywood is nothing if not rooted in hypocrisy, and I point you to Kate Winslet Oscar win as proof of this. Winslet was passed over for Best Actress five times before scoring a win with 2009′s The Reader, and we’re we’re sure that her lengthy nude scenes had nothing to do with her win (*makes wanking gesture, but not for the reasons you think*).

Yet in the same year that Rose from Titanic got even more naked, Lars Von Trier showed dongs going in with Antichrist and won nothing. Shameful.

Julie Christie, Darling

Every trend has an originator, and Julie Christie is the OG of onscreen, Oscar-worthy nakedness. In 1966, Christie took home the Academy Award for her turn as Diana Scott, a British model sleeping her way to the top in Darling the previous year. The role was so provocative that Life magazine ended up declaring 1965 as “The Year of Julie Christie”, as opposed to “The Year of the Hobbit” we are currently living in thanks to Kim Kardashian‘s #BreaktheInternet campaign.

The power of the buff, everyone.

With news that Bryan Singer will be helming the next X-Men film also came the news that the film will be taking place somewhere between Days of Future Past and the first installment. As such, it’s going to be a little tricky to incorporate the “current” actors as they have been cast, because taking 20 years off James Marsden would be ridiculous. Halle Berry could swing it. Famke Janssen would probably look weird.

As such, Vulture is reporting that Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey will all be getting recast to a younger crop of actors. No word on who that is yet, but my vote is just for Dakota Fanning to play all three.

That’s the only announcement as of yet, so we can hope and pray they leave the rest of the cast alone for now.

Bryan Singer Not Sure He’ll Invite Storm and Nightcrawler To His Next X-Men Party http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/bryan-singer-not-sure-hell-invite-storm-and-nightcrawler-to-his-next-x-men-party/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/bryan-singer-not-sure-hell-invite-storm-and-nightcrawler-to-his-next-x-men-party/#comments Tue, 12 Feb 2013 23:36:08 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=253509 Though it would be cool to see Nightcrawler fight Azazel.

While the exact plot details of X-Men: Days Of Future Past are still under wraps, initial casting makes it seem as though Bryan Singer is trying to pull off an all-mutant equivalent of Valentine’s Day. The cast is set to include the bulk of the original trilogy as well as most of the X-Men: First Class players. However, there are two key characters that Singer is still on the fence about bringing back. Note: nobody counts Kelsey Grammer.

When MTV approached Singer about Halle Berry returning to the role of Storm, he wasn’t certain if the story would allow for it. “I can’t say. I don’t know yet. And it’s not necessarily a deal making aspect at all. I want to make sure it’ll make sense. But I love working with her.”

He pretty much told the Huffington Post the same thing when they asked about Alan Cumming appearing once again as Nightcrawler. “I don’t want to…sometimes you don’t want to say “yes” or “no” to something that may not be a “yes” or a “no,” or anything. I haven’t decided yet, a few things. I’m still, you know — there are certain aspects of the script that I’m still toying with.”

In other words, Singer isn’t sure that he wants to have a bad guy defeated by being teleported into the sky and then zapped with lightning.

What Not To Expect: 8 Actresses Ruined By Pregnancy http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/what-not-to-expect-8-actresses-ruined-by-pregnancy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/what-not-to-expect-8-actresses-ruined-by-pregnancy/#comments Fri, 18 May 2012 15:59:23 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=248757 They got more than they were expecting.

The post What Not To Expect: 8 Actresses Ruined By Pregnancy appeared first on Screen Junkies.

What To Expect When You’re Expecting opens this weekend, and a wave of dangerous female body dysmporphia will no doubt follow. The film champions pregnancy as a magical and rewarding experiencing without adequately representing the counter argument of ‘Yuck!’ Nor does it mention that your feet grow, forcing you to throw out your shoe collection. You also get bad diarrhea and a room full of strangers sees your vagina.

Still don’t believe us? As a service to our female readers, we’ve compiled this list of actresses ruined by their pregnancies. Plan accordingly ladies.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba hasn’t racked up the movie roles since giving birth to her first daughter four years ago. You may be inclined to blame that on The Love Guru but I think it’s clear what happened here. Having a child ruined her.

Take the above photo from the January 2012 issue of InStyle Australia for instance. Note the fatigue in the mother of two’s hair. No doubt the result of getting two hours of sleep a night. It’s safe to say had she not become a mother, she’d be able to make it into the American version of InStyle and The Love Guru would have Oscars.

Heidi Klum

Supermodel and mother of four, Heidi Klum, appeared naked in the May 2012 issue of Allure and the results weren’t pretty. Would you look at that? Having children completely drained her vibrancy and color. Now she’s forced to always appear black and white. It’s sad.

Angelina Jolie

Now Angelina Jolie had the right idea. Rather than beat the sh*t out of her womb with needless sucklings, the beauty decided to adopt her children, thus providing for her maternal instincts without depriving the world of watching her raid tombs in tight outfits. However, even the sweetest dreams must flicker away and give way to the harsh light of reality.

Jolie threw her body in the toilet in 2006 when she conceived her first biological child with Brad Pitt. The couple went on to have a pair of twins together two years later. Earlier this year Jolie drew a lot of ridicule for her awkward leg pose while presenting at the Academy Awards. Those critics will feel terrible to hear that after giving birth to three children (two at the same time), Jolie’s hips are 100% dislocated irreparably. This happens all the time with pregnancies.

Bridget Moynahan

Since being stricken pregnant in 2006, Bridget Moynahan has broken up with Tom Brady, acted inBattle: Los Angeles, and found love with McG. I hate it when bad things happen to good people.

Rebecca Romijn

Rebecca Romijn began a successful career as a model with Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret at the barely legal age of nineteen. Since that time she has gone on to achieve international fame as an actress with success across several genres. All that hard work for nothing.

Romijn now plays mom to the twins she had with actor Jerry O’Connell. As you can see from her pictures in the March 2012 issue of Fitness Magazine, she’s still in amazing shape. HOWEVER, what is deal with the pinky on her left hand?

That’s tiny even by pinky standards. It more than likely can be linked to the stretching of her birth canal. Way to ruin it for the rest of us, Jerry.

Elizabeth Hurley


It can be argued that Elizabeth Hurley is enjoying a career resurgence since giving birth to her son ten years ago. She starred recently on Gossip Girl as an attractive cougar hopping into bed with younger men and is also a successful swimwear designer. Designs which she models herself. Well, let’s not get all caught up in how wonderful and sexy she looks. Fact remains, this woman once had another life growing inside of her. Repulsive.

She also told British magazine Zest that she eats three times as much as her beau, Australian spin-bowler Shane Warne. I don’t know what spin-bowling is but I bet it requires excessive calories be burned. What hunger did that childbeast leave behind in you, Elizabeth?

Halle Berry


There was once a time that just saying the name “Halle Berry” would cause men to drop to their knees and ejaculate uncontrollably before drifting into a dissociative fugue state. That time was 1991 – 2008. In 2008, Berry gave birth to a little girl. Since then her career and image have been beaten by a burlap sack stuffed with feces. Metaphorically.

However, you can see the toll that child-rearing has had on her looks. Note the slimy green substance that now oozes from her pores and scalp. How far she has fallen.

Rosario Dawson


Wait. She doesn’t have a kid? Then where the Hell has she been?

9 Respected Actors Made To Do Silly Things http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-respected-actors-made-to-do-silly-things/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-respected-actors-made-to-do-silly-things/#comments Thu, 09 Feb 2012 17:56:08 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=240868 Shame, shame, shame.

The post 9 Respected Actors Made To Do Silly Things appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
We all do things that we don’t like for money. Whereas some of us wait tables or walk dogs or blog, there are others who want so badly to make it as an actor that they’ll take roles they should have thought twice about. Whether they were attempting to get their start, looking for a challenge, or unable to resist the money, there are several celebrated actors who took roles that made them look like complete anuses.

Here is our list of award winning actors and the silly things that directors made them do.

Paul Giamatti – Big Fat Liar

Just one year before American Splendor launched him into starring roles, Paul Giamatti was died blue and taking nut-shots opposite Frankie Muniz in the kid’s comedy Big Fat Liar. In the film, Giamatti plays a sleazy Hollywood producer who plagiarizes Muniz’s school essay and turns it into a hit film. As revenge, Muniz teams up with Amanda Bynes to turn his world upside down. His skin and hair are dyed, his car destroyed, and his staff turned against him. That’s the kid’s film equivalent of being Qaddfi’d.

Bryan Cranston – Mighty, Morphin’ Power Rangers

It was a long and winding road that lead Bryan Cranston to Emmy gold and his breakout role as Walter White on Breaking Bad. Along the way, he picked up guest-starring spots and odd voice work all around Hollywood. One voice over gig was that of Snizard on Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. The snake/lizard hybrid easily defeated its foes by launching “tonsil snakes” that would wrap around and weaken their targets. Cranston got off lucky here. So many Hollywood hopefuls are forced to deal with a very different definition of tonsil snake if they want to be stars.

Sean Connery – Zardoz

After captivating the world with his portrayal of James Bond in six films, Sean Connery was walking on sunshine. Considered by many to be the epitome of sexy, the Scottish actor was a major movie star the entire world over. That must be want gave him the confidence to wear a long french braid and strut around in a puffy red diaper with matching ammo bandelier suspenders. Eh. It was the 70′s.

Garry Marshall’s ‘New Year’s Eve’ Poster Seems To Focus On Homeless Hector Elizondo http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/garry-marshalls-new-years-eve-poster-seems-to-focus-on-homeless-hector-elizondo/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/garry-marshalls-new-years-eve-poster-seems-to-focus-on-homeless-hector-elizondo/#comments Fri, 14 Oct 2011 19:29:26 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=232479 It's nice to watch other couples go through the same things we do, like fights with Josh Duhamel and difficulty getting Sarah Jessica Parker pregnant.

Garry Marshall’s New Year’s Eve Poster is making the rounds today, and my retinas are seared from all the star power!

Among others, the poster proudly boasts Abigail Breslin AND Til Schweiger! That’s right, the German actor and director of over 50 films will be popping up to bring some diversity (granted, European diversity) to the ensemble cast which also features:

Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Robert De Niro, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Hector Elizondo, Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Meyers, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara.

The film also seems to star “champagne” and “backlit dancing” in their breakout roles.

Because it’s Friday and so little real news breaks on Friday, let’s try to guess the coupling here:

Seth Meyers and Halle Berry

Zac Efron and Jessica Biel

Ludacris, Robert De Niro, and Abigail Breslin

Til Schweiger and any woman with two eyes and a heart

Sarah Jessica Parker and Hector “The Hitman” Elizondo

Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel (They’ll have the cutest babies!!!!)

And since I’m pretty much over this exercise, let’s say the rest just hook up in a giant orgy over the end credits.

In Honor Of Sly Stone: 11 Formerly Homeless Celebrities http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/in-honor-of-sly-stone-11-formerly-homeless-celebrities/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/in-honor-of-sly-stone-11-formerly-homeless-celebrities/#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2011 17:33:28 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=230184 Even the ridiculously attractive can be homeless.

The post In Honor Of Sly Stone: 11 Formerly Homeless Celebrities appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Four years ago, Sly Stone was a celebrity lived in a Napa Valley home complete with a vineyard, and owned several luxury vehicles. Now, thanks to a drug habit, he only owns one Van. Also, he lives in it.

That’s right. The Sly & The Family Stone funk legend has fallen on tough times that have forced the 68-year old to live homeless on the streets. However, he’s got a good attitude and is working hard on new material in an attempt to stage a comeback. If history has taught us anything, a little perseverance goes a long way. Just look at these formerly homeless celebrities who struggled before making it in the business of show.

Halle Berry


Some girls drop out of school to model in Paris before breaking into acting. From there it’s all runway shows and dating hot European men and giggly pillowfights with their hot model roommates. Others (like Halle Berry) move to New York and live in a homeless shelter. From there it’s all running away from cops and being peed on and fighting over pillows with your crazy hobo roommates.

Tom Jane

Turns out that Tom Jane didn’t need to do that deep research for his role in Homeless Dad. He’d already lived on the streets before making it as an actor. “You have to sacrifice everything you have. I was homeless for a couple of months there. I stayed in welfare hotels in downtown L.A. and when I wasn’t doing that I was living off of food stamps.” Also, “I just want my kids back.”

Jim Carrey

As a teenager, Jim Carrey and his family lived out of a VW van. A few years later, while on the stand-up comedy circuit, the family upgraded to a tent on his older sister’s lawn. Or was it a downgrade? I don’t really understand the homeless ranking system.

Sylvester Stallone

Turnabout is fair play. Sly Stallone may have copied Sly Stone’s name, but now Sly Stone is going to copy Sly Stallone’s homelessness. Stallone once said, “I was broke and basically sleeping in the Port Authority bus station for three weeks straight. I read in a trade paper about this film [The Party at Kitty and Studs", 1970] that was paying $100 a day—for a $100 a day I would wreak havoc. Instead of doing something desperate, I worked for two days for $200 and got myself out of the bus station.” Then he bought that awesome robot in Rocky IV.

Michael Winslow

Believe it or not, but the guy whose prime talent is imitating squeaky shoes and apple-biting had a hard time early in his career. Winslow found himself homeless in Venice Beach after hitchhiking to Hollywood from Colorado. On the plus side, it gave him ample opportunity to work on his seagull impression.

Djimon Hounsou

While coming up as a model and an actor, Djimon Hounsou slept in the subways and camped by the Eiffel Tower for two years. He was thirteen. Think about that the next time your son would rather play Nintendo DS than help out with yard work.

Charlie Chaplin

Before Charlie Chaplin became famous for playing “The Tramp,” he was just a normal tramp. Chaplin lived on the streets of London as a young boy after his father passed away and his mom was taken into a mental health facility. That’s pretty rough. No wonder he was so quiet.

Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra found herself homeless in her early 20′s after her boyfriend stole her life savings. She once told The Las Vegas Review-Journal, “You know, I had a couple of years of being homeless in Hollywood. I remember sitting on a park bench in the valley. I was crying because I was stranded. It was over 100 degrees outside.” That explains a lot. I’ll never question her appearance in Setzer-Friedberg films again.

Kelsey Grammer

Kelsey Grammer used to camp out in an alley behind his motorcycle. There’s no record of how long this went on, but it’s impressive considering all the work Grammer has got over the years and the mini-empire he is building. In addition to having run through some pretty hot tail, he also sounds like he’d be a Hide and Seek pro.

Mark Webber

Before finding his way to the big screen, Snow Day star Mark Webber and his mother were homeless. They lived together on the streets, in vacant buildings, and in homeless shelters. Well, that explains his style of dress.

Danny Bonaduce

Former child star Danny Bonaduce lived out of his car just before landing his gig as a radio host. He’s lived in the gym ever since then.

Halle Berry may be a huge movie star and weather-controlling mutant, but that doesn’t mean she’s above appearing on television. And so appear on television she very well might, if the spec script Higher Learning to which she’s attached gets picked up by any of the major pay cable networks (wow, what a marvelous sentence that is).

6 photosAmii Grove

The script is reportedly about a college professor to be played by Berry, but details are sparse. Maybe the title is some kind of drug pun, which means we’ll get to see Halle Berry sitting around with her students, eating pizza and getting high. “Talk about ‘Higher Learning’!” the ads will say. I can’t wait. (Deadline)

Hugo Weaving Floating On ‘Cloud Atlas’, Heh Heh http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hugo-weaving-floating-on-cloud-atlas-heh-heh/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hugo-weaving-floating-on-cloud-atlas-heh-heh/#comments Wed, 11 May 2011 22:06:28 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211638 This could get insane.

The post Hugo Weaving Floating On ‘Cloud Atlas’, Heh Heh appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
The Wachowskis‘s upcoming Cloud Atlas sounds like one of the biggest and most ambitious movies to be taken on by a major studio. It’s based on a novel by David Mitchell, and will be directed by both the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. In case you haven’t read what it’s about, here it is – and try to imagine what this is going to be like onscreen:

“Mitchell’s 2004 novel follows six storylines that include a 19th century American notary, a poor British musician in the 1930s, a journalist in 1970s California, a vanity press publisher in the early 21st century, a rebellious clone in the near future and a primitive Hawaiian tribesman surviving after the apocalypse. Each actor in the film will be playing multiple roles.”

This is either going to be amazing or terrible. Or, you know, somewhere in between. Anyway, Hugo Weaving has signed on, which is continuing his relationship with the Wachowskis through the Matrix trilogy and V for Vendetta. He’s joining Tom Hanks, along with Halle Berry and Ben Whishaw. So be sure to keep them in your thoughts – they definitely have their work cut out for them. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Garry Marshall’s New Years Eve just added two more pretty people to its actor pile-up thanks to Carla Gugino, Halle Berry, and a judge. Berry, who had to drop out of shooting the ensemble romantic comedy due to a custody dispute over her daughter, found that a ruling in her favor is allowing her to travel with her daughter to New York to re-join the already enormous cast that includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Zac Efron, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michelle and Robert De Niro. Berry will play a nurse, in a role that is significantly smaller than the role that was originally intended for her.

Gugino, who can next be seen in Zack Snyder directed Sucker Punch and the Jim Carrey starring adaptation of Mr. Popper’s Penguins, will be playing mainly opposite Jessica Biel and SNL’s Seth Myers. (Hollywood Reporter)

Halle Berry To Have Sex With 19 Year-Old While Paul Verhoeven Watches http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/halle-berry-to-have-sex-with-19-year-old-while-paul-verhoeven-watches/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/halle-berry-to-have-sex-with-19-year-old-while-paul-verhoeven-watches/#comments Tue, 08 Feb 2011 22:57:31 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=25669 Halle Berry gets down with her husband's teenage intern in The Student. Sadly, the intern is male.

While the newly-announced The Student may not be one of Verhoeven’s many dream projects, it’s not exactly a slouch, either. The sexual thriller stars Halle Berry as the wife of the boss of a 19 year-old intern, with whom she is knockin’ boots on the side. I don’t see where the whole education angle comes into play, but The Student does sound better than The Intern.

This will be Verhoeven’s first movie since 2006′s Black Book, which came and went with little fanfare. However, The Student‘s plot, along with the weight that Halle Berry can bring to a role, should allow for Verhoeven to have a lot of fun with this one, despite the potentially high cheese factor here, considering he was able to craft Basic Instinct out of a similarly thin concept.

The tension between the three main characters has me guessing at who would be best in the role of the boss and the intern here, but since my knowledge of 19 year-old male actors is limited to Zac Efron, I’m going to say Zac Efron. (Hit Fix)

The world has been breathlessly awaiting the romantic pair of Halle Berry and Jon Bon Jovi in the upcoming film New Year’s Eve. Unfortunately for the world (and fortunately for Halle Berry, hey-o!), Halle Berry is being replaced by America’s sweetheart Katherine Heigl (maybe she can also star in a parody “Nude Year’s Eve“).

Apparently, Heigl just adopted some poor kid and was looking for a project that wouldn’t require a huge time commitment. New Year’s Eve fits the bill, since as a follow up to Garry Marshall’s surprise hit Valentine’s Day it’s a big ensemble piece. Just a couple pinches of Heigl, as opposed to a whole dish. Dunno why I went with a food metaphor but whatever. New Year’s Eve will also star (deep breath) Robert De Niro, Sofia Vergara, Russell Peters, Hilary Swank, Ice Cube, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Michelle Pfeiffer, Zac Efron, Josh Duhamel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Abigail Breslin, Seth Meyers, Jessica Biel and Til Schweiger. (via Deadline)

Halle Berry recently passed up the role of Aretha Franklin in her forthcoming biopic. But, much like she does with Burger King’s strict No Refills policy, the diva is not taking no for an answer.

According to THR, Berry politely refused the role citing her lack on singing ability, causing Aretha to respond, “Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-synching to the artist‘s original recordings.”

To which, Berry jokingly told Ryan Seacrest, “Someone should tell Aretha that I can’t do her justice.”

Franklin then responded, “Bring me Solo and the Wookiee. They will all suffer for this outrage.”

Seems like this back and forth could go on and on. But Aretha just needs to face the fact that Halle isn’t up for the role. She can’t sing and she doesn’t look like a Gorg from “Fraggle Rock.” Nothing about her fits the part. But, who knows, maybe Henson’s Creature Shop can help out with casting.

That's it. Play with it...nice and slow.

Everyone knows that the Golden Globes are a joke, so why not have some joke quotes to go with them? Here are ten truthful celebrity reactions we’d like to have seen.


While I’m honored to be nominated for best actress in a comedy, there’s nothing funny about a film with a $100 million budget taking in only $16.5 million in its opening weekend.
-Angelina Jolie, The Tourist


I’d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for recognizing the importance of a film that allows hipsters to experience the plot of “How I Met Your Mother” without having to subject themselves to network TV.
-Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine


Who thinks I’m Michael Cera now, bitch? Scott Pilgrim vs. my dick!
-Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network


I’m nominated for Alice too? Quit yankin’ my c*ck, buddy. Nobody would pay for that nomination.
-Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland


I’m honored, but I’m no hero. I’m just a guy who got Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis to go at it on film. Wait a minute…come to think of it I am a goddamn hero!
-Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan


I’d like to thank my talented writing staff. Without them, none of this would have ever been possible. Ha, just kidding!

-Frank Darabont, “The Walking Dead”


Who’d I have to sleep with to get a nomination? No, seriously. My agent told me I’d have to sleep with someone.

-Halle Berry, Frankie and Alice


Oh, good for meeeeeeee!

-Christian Bale, The Fighter


Don’t tell me not to fly, I’ve simply got to! If someone takes a spill it’s me and– (line “disconnected”)
-Chris Colfer, “Glee”


It’s an honor just to be nominated. We weren’t nominated? Screw this, let’s go score some coke. Yo drive. Cause I said so, you fat f#$%!
-Charlie Sheen, “Two and a Half Men
