A Paris Hilton Documentary Is In The Works.

Paris Hilton Is The 'Queen Of F---ing Everything!

LOL. Of course it is.

I remember watching Paris Hilton‘s E! True Hollywood Story, and thinking about her obnoxiousness, and also what an interesting life she’s led. Later, I had a press pass to her Christmas Party, which was an animal unlike any other (in short: lots of pictures of Paris and LOTS of Chick-Fil-A. But that’s a blog post for a different time). ANYHOW, there’s going to be a film about Paris’ life, that promises to “reflect on how the spotlight has contributed to the person she is and examine the impact her image has made on young women today”. To tear off the mask covering Paris’ long 35 years of life, documentarians Don Argott and Sheena Joyce are apparently going to interview Paris about all things Paris. It’s what she like to talk about best, so why not?

Anyone who has turned on a television or looked at a computer screen over the past decade may well assume they know everything there is to know about Paris Hilton.

Apparently not.

9.14 Pictures and XYZ Films on Wednesday used Cannes to announce an as-yet untitled documentary peering into the life of the “businesswoman, entrepreneur and media icon.”

Don Argott and Sheena Joyce are set to direct the project, which will kick off production in Ibiza at the end of summer, with Hilton, Jamie Freed and 9.14 Pictures producing. XYZ Films, which also is executive producing, is handling worldwide sales and will be introducing the doc to buyers at the Cannes film market.

Billed as a “unflinching, authorized documentary,” the project will see Hilton discuss the thing that made her famous, reflect on how the spotlight has contributed to the person she is and examine the impact her image has made on young women today.

“Paris Hilton is a modern day-Marilyn Monroe — beautiful, iconized, world famous, shaped by mass media and misunderstood,” said Argott and Joyce. “We are thrilled to work with Paris to explore her complicated relationship with the public, the press and the politics that shape our perception of a modern celebrity.”

“Hilton will discuss the thing that made her famous” – would that be her great grandfather’s last name or her first authorized documentary? And to compare Paris Hilton to Marilyn Monroe is a STRETCH.

The production is set to film this summer in Ibiza, where Paris is resident DJ at Amnesia. Now, these documentarians have a pretty good pedigree for making good stuff (they made Rock School and The Art of the Steal) so who knows?

Would you see a documentary about Paris Hilton?

Blake Lively, Nobody Respects You For Defending Woody Allen

Very interesting. Very, very interesting.

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg have gotten in trouble before for shooting off their big mouths about stuff they have no idea about. And yet, they’ve managed to keep quiet and respectful and stay under the radar after Ronan Farrow’s op-ed dropped on Wednesday. I’m sure they’ve both gotten pointed questions about why they chose to work with Woody on Café Society, but their publicists are doing what stars pay them to do: namely, STFU-ing about anything Woody-related. Unfortunately, Blake’s publicist is clearly not as good. Following Blake’s nonsensical defense of Woody yesterday, she dropped these gems in another interview:

“It’s amazing what Woody has written for women,” said Blake Lively, who plays a Midwestern woman of some elegance, noting a series of complicated female characters dating back to the 1970s. Lively said any news coverage of Allen’s personal life did not register as she was making the movie.

“It’s very dangerous to factor in things you don’t know anything about,” she said. “I could [only] know my experience. And my experience with Woody is he’s empowering to women.”

Ugh. I know what’s going on. She wants to stay in Woody’s good graces so that maybe, in the future, he’ll write a part for her that will up her career. And while it’s true that Woody has written some meaty parts for women, this is not the moment to come to his defense. Where he might be empowering to women in his film life, he definitely hasn’t been in his personal life- and he’s using his “powerful white man” superpowers to sweep it under the rug.

Sigh.

Here’s Another Interview About How Kristen Stewart Is “Misunderstood.”

kristen-stewart-variety-cover-cannes-small

Honestly, how many of these can we read?

Kristen Stewart is kind of a compelling person to watch/read about, mostly because I feel like she’s always struggling with who she is and what she wants and how she wants to be perceived. I might be wrong, but she seems VERY image conscious, very pursuant of “cool.” And this Variety interview isn’t much different, aside from a bunch of stuff about her parents being normal, working-class movie people (her mom is a script supervisor and her dad is a stage manager). Other than that, the same old, no labels, not letting Twilight define her, etc. etc. etc….

On her post-Twilight Identity:“I didn’t carve out some path. I didn’t fight hard to be taken seriously. As much as the ‘Twilight’ series shaped and defined me for other people in a grand way, for me it wasn’t something I had to get away from. It was just a long experience on a movie that I liked.”

On returning to blockbusters: “I’m a kid from the Valley,” she says. “I love big movies that everyone sees, and I can’t wait for the opportunity to f—ing nail that. It has to be the right people and the right time.”

On defining her sexuality:“There’s acceptance that’s become really rampant and cool,” she says. “You don’t have to immediately know how to define yourself.” Stewart didn’t feel that way growing up, but she’s come to adopt this outlook. “I had to have some answer about who I was. I felt this weird responsibility, because I didn’t want to seem fearful. But nothing seemed appropriate. So I was like, ‘F—k, how do I define that?’ I’m not going to. Plus, I didn’t want to f—k with other people,” she says, referring to teenagers who struggle with their sexuality. “I didn’t want to be this example: It’s so easy. I don’t want it to seem like it was stupid for them to have a hard time.”

On appearing publicly with girlfriends: “As much as I want to protect myself, it’s not about hiding. As soon as you start throwing up so many walls, you cannot see over them yourself, so you just start isolating in a way that’s not honest. I definitely found where I’m comfortable. I don’t take credit for that.” She says that times have changed, and her publicist doesn’t even need to ask her how she’ll handle these questions. “Things have really shifted in this wonderful way. I’m reaping the benefits.”

For real, though- can Kristen just use the word “GIRLFRIEND” already? Jesus.

LADIES: Magic Mike Is Coming To VEGAS!!!!

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 12.11.00 AM

Start booking your Vegas flights NOW!

On Wednesday, Channing Tatum streamed his first-ever live video on his social media page to show off his big… announcement. And it’s something that seems so freaking logical, I’m surprised it’s just happening now. The news was that Magic Mike Live is officially a thing and it’s coming to Las Vegas!

“I’ve got a big announcement. We’re going to be doing Magic Mike Live in Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino!”

Also according to the actor, the show will launch in March. I know, it’s an agonizing ten months but just enough to get those costumes perfectly formed to the actors’…bodies. BUT, it does let you collect all the ones you can, so you can make that SHIZ RAIN!

According to the press release, the performance “will recreate the mythic Club Domina with a sizzling 360-degree dance and acrobatic strip tease spectacular, guaranteed to bring on the heat.”

However, the hunk admitted in his new clip that he won’t be up there with his old pony routine:

Magic Mike has been a special and very personal project for me, and this show is a natural extension of that. So while I won’t be on stage as Mike, Magic Mike Live Las Vegas is my vision and I’m looking forward to spending a lot of time in Las Vegas creating something that will give women what they really want.”

I mean, obvi, right? He’s an actor by trade now, and has too much money to do some like, weird vegas shows. But who cares! New six packs to be bared and packages to be oogled! Anyhow, let’s take a look at one of my favorite Magic Mike XXL scenes, to commemorate this monumental occasion, below. Enjoy!
