The post 7 Scandals More Ghetto Than Demi Moore Using Nitrous appeared first on Screen Junkies.

It was revealed yesterday that Demi Moore was hospitalized after having a bad reaction to laughing gas, a.k.a. nitrous oxide. I was probably not alone in, after reading the headlines, assuming that she had an allergy to it at the dentist of something. Nope. She was doing whip-its, the same kind that those other kids who weren’t me did in high school.

The kind of nitrous oxide that makes Grateful Dead and Widepread Panic fans the way they are.

It’s hard to imagine a less likely candidate for huffing laughing gas. Demi Moore is a mature, A-list celebrity with a loving family. She’s also on the heels of what would seem to be a pretty devastating separation, which could have driven her to gas-huffing. I don’t know. I would have thought that being in a relationship with Ashton Kutcher would have led her to huff things.

Anyway, she’s in some pretty bad company when it comes to classless scandals (shocking, no?). Here are a few in her rarified company.

George Michael – Anonymous Sex In A Public Restroom…Twice

Twice. The first time in Beverly Hills, where he was arrested, the second time in England, where he was also arrested. So the guy likes anonymous sex. That’s cool, I guess. But in public restrooms? So conspicuously that you get arrested? Twice?

This makes me wonder how many times he’s actually done it and not gotten arrested. I’m guessing around a billion. His partner, Kenny Goss, is apparently totally cool with this behavior, which may be the sleaziest aspect of these incidents.

Hugh Grant – Picking Up A Hooker That Looks Like Divine Brown

I don’t know how I can further explain how weird and sleazy this was. The fact that it was constantly befuddled charming Brit Hugh Grant helps. So does the fact that he was dating Elizabeth Hurley at the time. That was more than a little confusing/troubling. Never mind the adage, “Going out for burgers when you have prime rib at home.” This is “going out for getting punched in the dick when you have Elizabeth Hurley at home.”

It’s a lesser known idiom, but quite apt, if you ask me.

The ‘Pirates! Band Of Misfits’ Trailer Has Pissed Off Lepers http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-pirates-band-of-misfits-trailer-has-pissed-off-lepers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-pirates-band-of-misfits-trailer-has-pissed-off-lepers/#comments Tue, 24 Jan 2012 16:43:17 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=243425 2012: The year clay animation became offensive.

What should have been this year’s least offensive film, Aardman Animation’s The Pirates! Band Of Misfits, has gone and pissed off leprosy groups. Seriously. Clay pirates have caused offense.

Lepra Health In Action and the International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations took issue with a scene in the trailer when a man declares himself as a leper just seconds before his arm falls off. Aardman apologized for the offense (probably in a hilariously proper British way) and agreed to change the scene. An Aardman spokesperson says:

“After reviewing the matter, we decided to change the scene out of respect and sensitivity for those who suffer from leprosy. The last thing anyone intended was to offend anyone and it is clear to us that the right way to proceed is to honor the efforts made by organizations like ILEP to educate the public about this disease.”

I assume the scene will now feature characters inflicted with severe pain, muscle weakness, eye problems, and enlarged nerves primarily around the elbow and knee. The changes to the stop-motion scene is expected to be finished in three years. (Deadline)

The Time Is Upon Us: ‘Bridget Jones 3′ Is Moving Forward http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-time-is-upon-us-bridget-jones-3-is-moving-forward/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-time-is-upon-us-bridget-jones-3-is-moving-forward/#comments Fri, 12 Aug 2011 23:10:23 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=224463 I love Bridget Jones. But then again, I like my women THICK.

If there was a way to embed mp3s in articles, you can rest assured that you would be listening to “I’m Every Woman” as you read this piece. And it would be LOUD. But the technology just isn’t there yet, so you’ll just have to learn about the announcement of Bridget Jones 3 while playing it in your head.

That’s right, it’s time for Renee Zellweger to get fat and British again, as the script for the third installment is reportedly done and pre-development is underway. They’ve decided to make this one about the love triangle between Zellweger, Colin Firth, and Hugh Grant. That should make for a refreshing change of nothing.

Firth lays out the plot thusly:

“I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can’t have children, I think that’s the way it goes on. So then she makes the huge mistake of going back to Daniel Cleaver [Hugh Grant's character] for long enough to get pregnant. And I think he dumps her, and she’s left stranded, and guess who comes back to rescue her.”

A new Bridget Jones movie that’s all about raising a baby? Pinch me! (/Film)

Paul Feig To Help ‘Bridget Jones’ Make A Baby http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paul-feig-to-help-bridget-jones-make-a-baby/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/paul-feig-to-help-bridget-jones-make-a-baby/#comments Fri, 08 Jul 2011 13:17:11 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=219351 His talent for filming women embarrassing themselves is really paying off.

Paul Feig‘s adeptness at putting women in embarrassing situations has landed him the chance to direct the third Bridget Jones’s Diary film. The Bridesmaid‘s director is said to be in talks to helm the sequel to the classic romantic comedy. Bridget Jones creator, Helen Fielding, has written a script that would follow Renee Zellweger‘s titular character on her attempts to have a baby.

But nothing is a done deal just yet as it may be tricky to get the film’s stars to return. Renee Zellweger most likely would because she did Case 39, so how’s she going to argue? Colin Firth has an Oscar now which means his dry charm has become a lot more expensive. And Hugh Grant is keeping busy doing… I don’t know, Hugh Grant stuff. So let’s just go ahead and put Jon Hamm in their place in a dual role. (Daily Mail)

Hugh Grant Walks Away From ‘Two And A Half Men’ Talks, Mumbles Affably http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/hugh-grant-walks-away-from-two-and-a-half-men-talks-mumbles-affably/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/hugh-grant-walks-away-from-two-and-a-half-men-talks-mumbles-affably/#comments Wed, 11 May 2011 17:28:26 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211532 Hugh Grant decided that he and Charlie share a similar enough history as it is.

The next closest thing to Charlie Sheen is Hugh Grant. I had no idea.

Producers for “Two and a Half Men” were in deep talks with Grant to replace Sheen on the show, until he bowed out at the 11th hour, citing those time-tested “creative differences,” despite a rumored payday of $1 million per episode. Perhaps he was about to ink the contract when he asked offhand, “Do you mind if I see a script real quick?” After thumbing through the script, he then threw it on the conference and bellowed to the executives, “Awwww hellllllll no!” Or maybe he got his fill of working with awkward fat kids in About a Boy.

He then stormed out of the room, leaving Jon Cryer sitting outside, eagerly holding a cake that read “Welcome to CBS, Mr. Grant!!!”

Regardless of how it went down, Grant’s exit from negotiations leaves CBS without a bankable A-list replacement before upfronts next week. They still haven’t tapped other noted hooker patron Eddie Murphy. (I’m just trying to be helpful.)(Deadline)

Hugh Grant‘s adorable stammer has been sought by Aardman Animations for their next project. In The Pirates! Band Of Misfits, Grant will voice a bearded pirate captain concerned with winning the Pirate of the Year award. Directed by Peter Lord, the 3D stop-motion animated flick also stars a metric ass-ton of people, mostly British. Like Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Jeremy Piven, Salma Hayek, Brian Blessed, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey and Ashley Jenson.

Umm… Salma Hayek? Voicing a cartoon?? That means Salma Hayek was sought out for her acting and not her attributes. This. Makes. No. Sense. What is going on today? Help me though this confusion! Dogs are cats!! Food doesn’t taste right!!!! (Deadline)
