This is Kristen Stewart at the premiere of her new movie, “Personal Shopper.” Yeah, the one everyone BOOed at the media pre-screening. Anyhow, Kristen seemed to want to celebrate her movie by dressing like a ghost in a middle school play, I guess? Does she now have Taylor Swift‘s terrible stylist? I was already not super on board with her hair, but after this, I’m not even sure it IS the hair…just, EVERYTHING.
Kristen? Are you going through some kind of break down? Talk to us. We (money, new stylist, friends giving honest input) can help. Honestly, I feel terrible saying this but I miss the 90’s-tastic Kristen. AHHH! I know. It’s that bad.

Oh, speaking of something else noteworthy about Kristen Stewart‘s Cannes visit…
The actor’s latest collaboration with director Olivier Assayas, called “Personal Shopper,” was booed following a press screening at the Cannes Film Festival. Now I guess every year a film or two gets boo’d; last year it was Gus Van Sant’s “The Sea of Trees,” starring Matthew McConaughey, and now it’s this one. It’s also kinda weird because according to critics, the film is actually pretty okay. So what gives? Some think it’s subject matter might’ve been the tipping point…
“There’s a certain perverse genius to unveiling a ghost movie at Cannes that relies on the audience to deliver the ‘boos’ as the final credits roll, although one doubts that’s quite what Olivier Assayas was going for with his peculiar ‘Personal Shopper,’” Variety Chief International Film Critic Peter Debruge wrote in his review.
Stewart plays a personal shopper who communicates with spirits in the film, which does sound pretty stupid. Stewart and Assayas’ last film, 2014’s “Clouds of Sils Maria,” earned her rave reviews and a César — making her the first American actress to win the French prize. So hey, you win some, you lose some.

Woah, this is gonna be CRAZY!
The first ever estate-authorized documentary on Whitney Houston is in the works, with Kevin Macdonald at the helm set to direct.
Sure, it could be a pandering, soft-focus look at the singer’s life, but it could also be awesome and I’m choosing to believe it’s going to be awesome, what with the “unprecedented” levels of access he has to Whitney’s closest family and friends, alongside hours and hours of never before seen video from the singer’s life at every point.
Macdonald has already won an Oscar for his powerful terrorism documentary One Day In September, said of his motivation centering on Whitney in the project:
“The story that is never told about Whitney is just how brilliant she was as an artist; by many measures she had the greatest voice of the last 50 years. She changed the way pop music was sung — bringing it back full circle to its blues and gospel roots. She was also completely unique in being a black pop star who sold in countries where black artists don’t traditionally sell.”
Macdonald included more thoughts on what we should expect in the film:
“We have access to never-before-seen footage of Whitney that charts her whole life from her beginnings singing in her Church’s gospel choir to the day of her tragic death at the age of 48, and three decades of her music including exclusive demo recordings, rare performances and audio archive. Although we won’t shy away from the darker parts of Whitney’s life — her descent into addiction — I want audiences to walk out of the cinema and feel positive about Whitney and her music. I want to reveal a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew; and a woman those new to her life and music will never forget.”
No date has been set yet for a release, but obvi, it’s going to be a huge deal. I just hope it’s done right!

Tonya Harding’s crazy story is one of my favorites, so the fact that the biopic I, Tonya, is being made makes me both excited and apprehensive.
To refresh your memory: Tonya became the first American woman to complete the triple axel in major competitions, and was huge competition for Nancy Kerrigan, whom Tonya’s trashy husband hired someone to injure. Flash forward to now: Steven Rogers wrote a script about her life, and this VERY IT celeb was just attached to play the title character.
Who is she? Find out, after the jump!
