James Franco really doesn’t like bad reviews

FFN_RIA_Homefront_Prem_112013_51268731

James Franco is currently starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, and while I haven’t seen it, I can kinda guess that it’s not all that great, because it’s James Franco and that book never should have been made into a play, to be honest.

Well, the New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley apparently agreed with me and gave Franco’s performance a bit of a scathing review – something the actor didn’t take too kindly to, actually – and he took to Twitter to say so.

Ouch! Talk about being a bit of a poor sport! Come on, Franco! Have some pride!

Anthony Mackie wants more diverse superheroes

FFN_KM_Captain_America_031314_51355150

Anthony Mackie is starring in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but he’s also well-aware of how lucky he is to have secured the gig considering most superheroes are, well… white males. He thinks we need to change that to give our kids more realistic role models to look up to, and I couldn’t agree more!

“When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, ‘Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.’ That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that.”

Too right! I think we need more diverse superheroes AND that Anthony Mackie needs to be a lot more successful than he is, that’s for sure!

Oh hey there, Billy Bob Thornton

I feel like I haven’t really seen Billy Bob Thornton lately – not in any movies, not in the press or in interviews… nothing. I’m not particularly complaining about that, I just realized he’s been kinda low key lately.

He was seen leaving the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on Thursday after attending a “meeting” – that’s probably code for “securing a new role”, so we might be seeing more of him sooner than I think!

Tom Cruise and ‘Orange is the New Black’s Laura Prepon are dating?!

Bizarre couple alert! Tom Cruise has been on the hunt for his new scientology wife ever since he got divorced from Katie Holmes, and it looks like he may have finally found someone who cuts the mustard in Orange is the New Black (and That ’70s Show, lest we forget) actress Laura Prepon. Talk about a strange pairing!

P.R. reps for the two denied any romance in November after the actors were spotted enjoying a cozy dinner at the Manor Hotel in Los Angeles.

However, my source on the Left Coast says Cruise and Prepon are still seeing each other, but they are being extremely careful to keep it secret. “It’s the buzz on the set of her show,” the insider told me.

The British magazine Grazia reported last fall that Cruise, 51, picked up Prepon, 34, in a vintage car and had a bottle of 1979 Merlot waiting on the table when they arrived at the Manor Hotel.

“They spent three hours laughing and joking. It’s clear Tom is smitten and after the date he was on cloud nine,” the mag reported. “They had their second date at the restaurant, too, meeting for Sunday brunch, and then she accompanied him a few days later to a dinner party at John [Travolta]’s home.”

Huh, I… guess I can see it? Kinda? As much as I can see any celebrity couple, that is.  Who knows if it’s true, but watch this space!

Paul Walker’s mother abandons guardianship bid for his teenage daughter

After Paul Walker‘s death, his teenage daughter Meadow was being cared for full-time by his mother, Cheryl Ann Walker. While Cheryl was trying for a while to secure guardianship of Paul’s estate and of Meadow, she has since abandoned the effort.

Her attorney, Bela Lugosi, previously told reporters that the family, including Meadow’s biological mother, Rebecca Soteros, wanted to resolve the matter out of court.

A hearing had been scheduled for April 30, but a judge had already dismissed Cheryl Ann’s petition for temporary guardianship over Meadow following her son’s tragic death in a car crash last November.

Cheryl Ann’s papers seeking guardianship, which were filed in March, claimed that “parental custody would be detrimental to the minor” because of an alleged drinking problem.

Soteros apparently agreed to go to rehab so that she could take care of Meadow, so we’ll see what happens there. Regardless, Meadow should be the top priority – she’s been through enough tragedy, she doesn’t need any more.
