Sorry, old man Ryan Reynolds. Sometimes hitting the pavement is in your job description!
Apparently, doing his own stunts doesn’t seem as fun as it used to be for the movie star, the actor tells People:
“I remember 10 years ago when falling on cement was hilarious. It doesn’t feel like that anymore. I’m right at that age where I’ll do as many takes as they want, but I’m lying on the ground after each one thinking, ‘Oh, God. Just get up and get up fast. Don’t let them see you [in pain].’ “
Even so, he does still love a good fight, especially in his new psychological sci-fi thriller Self/less, which opened July 6.
“I love doing the fight stuff,” says Reynolds. “So much of it is character-based, so you want to be a part of that and put your fingerprints on that and do it as much as possible.”
That being said, he’s not trying to be a friggin’ hero over here.
“I certainly don’t jump in and do anything that’s really dangerous,” says Reynolds. “I’m not out there trying to be a superhero. “There are some stunts I didn’t do in Self/less, like the scene where a building explodes and I come flying out of it. That kind of stuff I just don’t mess around with. Even if I wanted to do it, I don’t think they would let me.”
That’s for sure. Don’t damage that pretty face, dude! I would like to keep gazing upon it’s splendor for decades to come…

As a lover of the film Cruel Intentions…I could not be happier for this reunion (even the reprise of the film’s sexy KISS!).
Last night, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair hit the town to go see Cruel Intentions the Musical!
I can’t believe it’s been 16 years after the film, but it looks like these ladies didn’t miss a beat. The three were all smiles when they snapped a bunch of pics on instagram hanging out, partying and you know…giving some young dudes exactly what they want…that KISS!
I love seeing costars reunite as pals…it makes me think some actors are kinda normal, sometimes. What do you think of this reunion? And will you see the Cruel Intentions Musical?

I see it.
Reese Witherspoon is set to produce a live-action take on the classic Peter Pan character Tinker Bell, in her new film Tink, and aside from tiny dwarfkin Hayden Panettiere, I couldn’t think of a better gal for the job.
And the best part? So many women are attached to make the film a reality.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Witherspoon will produce with Bruna Papandrea, her partner at the duo’s production banner, Pacific Standard. Victoria Strouse (who wrote the script for Pixar’s upcoming Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory) will write the script. No director yet, but I hope they’ve got ladyparts!
Sources say it’s being developed in the same way 2014’s Maleficent was, so that’s something to worry about. Like Maleficent, this Tinker Bell tale is conceived as “the story you don’t know,” and will offer a new perspective on the character with you know, a more midrange budget for the film and no horn prosthetics (we think).
What do you think? Does this film sound totally interesting or a lame rehash? GO!

Natalie Portman is taking another stab at what others have done (and in my opinion, failed at)…playing Jackie Kennedy!
This news was announced days after Portman was confirmed to play another U.S. political figure, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in an upcoming biopic. But why not play two important historical figures? Corner the biopic market, girl!
Portman will star as the former First Lady in the upcoming film helmed by Chilean director and Oscar nominee Pablo Larrain. The movie will span the first four days of Jackie’s life following the assassination of her husband President John F. Kennedy.
The movie, titled Jackie, will be produced by none other than Portman’s Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky. It will go into production at the end of this year.
As you know, Portman is one of many stars in Hollywood to play Kennedy in recent years. Katie Holmes tackled the role in the 2011 series The Kennedys, Minka Kelly barely showed up in Lee Daniels’ 2013 flick The Butler, Ginnnifer Goodwin was pretty mediocre in the 2013 docudrama Killing Kennedy, and Sarah Michelle Gellar in a 1991 miniseries called A Woman Named Jackie…didn’t see it, but I can only assume.
How do you think Portman will fare?
