Sarah Jessica Parker’s Narciso Rodriguez dress: love it or hate it?

Sarah Jessica Parker came out in support of her husband Matthew Broderick’s new film, ‘Tower Heist’. Sarah Jessica wore an interesting dress by Narciso Rodriguez. What do you think? Love it or hate it?

Other stars on hand for last night’s premiere: Paz de la Huerta, Tea Leoni, Ben Stiller and wife Christine Taylor, Serena Williams, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck and Gabourey Sidibe.

Tea looks great, Paz looks stoned, Christine is gorgeous, and Casey looks good!

I’m sorry to say this movie doesn’t look appealing to me at all. All that talent, and it seems like such a waste. Maybe the movie is better than the trailer looks?

Casey Affleck finally admits Joaquin Phoenix’s trip to crazytown was all a HOAX!!

Casey Affleck has finally admitted what we all assumed to be true. Last year’s very public meltdown of Joaquin Phoenix (which started with his crazed David Letterman appearance) was ALL FAKE. Joaquin appeared to have lost his ever lovin mind, and tried to start a rap career. (Watch the videos of him “rapping” here)

His documentary “I’m Still Here” was a just a performance by Joaquin. “It’s a terrific performance, it’s the performance of his career,” he told the New York Times.

He was speaking of Phoenix’s two-year portrayal of himself — on screen and off — as a bearded, drug-addled aspiring rap star, who, as Affleck tells it, put his professional life on the line to star in a bit of “gonzo filmmaking” modeled on the reality-bending journalism of Hunter S. Thompson.

“I’m Still Here” opened last week, and has been panned by critics. “The reviews were so angry” said Affleck. “I never intended to trick anybody. The idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind.”

“It is a hard movie to watch,” he admits.

He says none of it was real. Not a thing. Even his now famous stint on Letterman was fake – so fake in fact, Letterman wasn’t even in on it. He summed up the interview: “Joaquin, I’m sorry you couldn’t be here tonight.”

Apparently when Joaquin goes on Letterman on Wednesday, he will no longer be in character. So we should hopefully finally get to see the REAL Joaquin. We’ve been missing him! This whole crazy stunt was stupid, and from the sounds of it – so is his movie.

Did Casey Affleck sexually harrass two women on the set of ‘I’m Still Here’!

These stories always make me cringe a little, because it’s hard to know what’s real and what’s not. When you hear that a case was settled before it ever went to court, it sure makes you stop and think!

Casey Affleck was being sued by two women who worked with him on his Joaquin Phoenix documentary, ‘I’m Still Here’ for sexual harassment. The case has been dismissed, however, because both women have reached an out-of-court settlement with Affleck.

Back in July producer Amanda White, and cinematographer Magdelana Gorka separately claimed that Affleck was verbally abusive and made unwanted sexual advances during production of the film. Gorka also reported that Affleck had groped her while she slept. Both women were asking for $2 million plus.

In a statement, Affleck’s lawyer said the disputes “have been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties”.

It added Ms Gorka and Ms White’s legal claims were now being dismissed.

The pair had claimed they left the production team of I’m Still Here following “uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances” from Affleck, who is married to Phoenix’s sister.

Ms White claimed Affleck refused to pay her salary because she would not spend the night in a hotel room with him, while Ms Gorka alleged Affleck crawled into bed with her as she slept.

The actor’s lawyers denied the allegations, calling them part of a scheme to extort money from Affleck.

Both Ms White and Ms Gorka will receive a credit on the film, but neither side would comment when asked to reveal financial terms.

I’m Still Here documents a year in the life of Phoenix after he announced his retirement from films in 2008, to pursue a new career as a hip hop musician.
