A picture is worth a thousand words… and if it’s a picture of Donald Trump surrounded by Saudi dignitaries in a darkened room, with the Egyptian president, King Salman and The Donald himself resting their hands on a glowing orb, you can bet it’s also worth a thousand tweets.
Scarlett Johansson is not an Ivanka Trump fan. Scarlett Johansson is “disappointed” by Ivanka Trump and the role President Trump’s daughter is playing in his administration. In an interview with Arianna Huffington at the Women in the World Summit in New York on Thursday, the Ghost in the Shell star admitted she’s “been thinking a lot about Ivanka Trump … very recently.” Johansson — who recently impersonated Ivanka on Saturday Night Live — brought up the first daughter’s interview this week on CBS This Morning.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is trying to flip the narrative of his ongoing ratings feud with President Donald Trump. “Oh Donald — the ratings are in, and you got swamped,” the actor and former Governor of California said in a video posted to Twitter Tuesday morning. “Wow. Now you’re in the thirties?” The video comes on the heels of... Read more »
Chris Evans plays Captain America on the big screen, but he feels a patriotic duty to stand up for injustice in real life, too.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has denied the rumours that he’s planning to revive his political career with a run for the US senate. In a post on Facebook yesterday, he said: “I’m deeply flattered by all of the people who have approached me about running for Senate, but my mission right now is to bring sanity to Washington through redistricting reform like we passed here in California. “Gerrymandering has completely broken our political system and I believe my best platform to help repair it is from the outside, by campaigning for independent redistricting commissions.
Donald Trump has made much about the ‘elitists’ who apparently run the world. “He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. According to disclosures made in 2015, and reported by Bloomberg, Trump received a sum of $110,228 (over £88,000) from a union pension fund, though it’s not clear if this is an annual payment.
Meryl Streep has been on the Trump war path again, this time at the Human Rights Campaign gala. Meryl Streep makes a stand at the gala. It was only last month when the multi Oscar-winner made a powerful speech against the new President when she took to the stage at the Golden Globes – much to Trump’s disapproval as his retaliatory Tweet showed.
Stephen K. Bannon, Donald Trump’s controversial chief strategist and closest advisor, reportedly met with Mel Gibson to discuss a documentary movie he wanted to make about subjects including eugenics, Adolf Hitler, cloning, mutants and ‘blood purity’. The Daily Beast has unearthed an 11-page treatment for Bannon’s film, written in 2005, and which was called ‘The Singularity: Resistance Is Futile’.
It’s long been known that Arnold Schwarzenegger would dearly love to serve in the Oval Office – but until now, he’s never directly challenged a serving US President to let him take over. Schwarzenegger took over from Trump as the frontman of reality TV series ‘The Apprentice,’ and Trump has repeatedly criticised his successor for apparently getting lower ratings – even going so far as to make a joke about this at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday.
J.K. Rowling is responding to fans who are reacting to her anti-Donald Trump tweets by claiming to torch their Potter-verse merchandise. Then on Wednesday, Rowling replied to a self-proclaimed fan of 17 years, suggesting that the reader seemingly missed an entire point of the Potter saga. Christian groups actually organized mass Potter burns back in 2001, protesting the novels as satanic.
"I hope that this is a wake-up call for [the White House]," said the former California governor and new 'Celebrity Apprentice' host.
Take filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, an Oscars 2017 nominee for his movie ‘The Salesman’ and former Best Foreign Language Film winner in 2012 with the stunning ‘A Separation’. After Trump’s decision to exclude anyone with links to seven countries – including Iranian-born Farhadi’s – it now means he’s – and outrageously so – banned from the country and attending the Oscars. Over the weekend (of the 28 and 29 January) Judges have temporarily been able to lift the strict ban the Trump administration put into place last week, so while he can once again currently enter the US, he may be banned again when the Oscars come around on 26 February.
Taraneh Alidoosti, the Iranian star of director Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar-nominated movie ‘The Salesman’, won’t be attending this year’s ceremony in protest over Donald Trump’s new orders to restrict immigration from many Middle Eastern countries. Taking to Twitter, she called the proposed visa ban ‘racist’. Trump's visa ban for Iranians is racist.
Donald Trump goes up to 11 in a new parody that replaces his voice with that of Spinal Tap guitarist Nigel Tufnel. If you’re not a Spinal Tap fan, this whole thing will probably make more sense to you if you start by watching the original scene from the 1984 film, above.
Shia LaBeouf’s four-year protest of President Donald Trump is off to an interesting start. The artist/actor installed a webcam at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City, where people are encouraged to stop by and repeat the words “He will not divide us.”
It’s finally official: Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States. This is something that a great many in the US and all over the world have been distinctly uneasy about for some time, and now, in his inauguration speech, one particular line uttered by the President has made some even more uneasy.
The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ star is never one to shy away from vocalising her opinion, but her latest words will no doubt rile many. Speaking of Donald Trump’s surprising rise to the White House, she claims that Hollywood should be blamed for ganging up on the reality TV host which led people to sympathise with him. While many can maybe agree that those hoping Hillary Clinton would win the election didn’t fight hard enough or get their points across effectively through the copious amounts of rumours and fake news generated by the opposition, it’s perhaps wrong to label liberal Americans as bullies.
While the end of the world isn’t actually Merkin Muffley’s fault, he never comes close to getting to grips with the escalating antics in ‘Dr Strangelove’ that ultimately lead to a chain reaction of apocalyptic nuclear bombs dropping. At least his inability to save humanity showed us that the only way to properly greet the end of the world is by listening to Vera Lynn. Again set in the Cold War (most of these films are), the titular disaster occurs after the Soviet Union and the United States detonate simultaneous nuclear bomb tests that alter the world’s orbit.
Robert De Niro once expressed his desire to punch Donald Trump in the face, so it stands to reason that he would wholeheartedly approve of his old chum Meryl Streep’s message during her Golden Globes speech on Sunday night. In fact, De Niro sent Streep a letter following her withering takedown of the president-elect’s behaviour, as she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award – a gong De Niro himself won in 2011.
Ben Affleck has come out in defence of Meryl Streep, following her stunning Golden Globes speech, in which the iconic actress took on President-elect Donald Trump.
Donald Trump didn’t always thing Meryl Streep is overrated. In fact, as recently as 2015, the president-elect thought she was brilliant, it’s emerged, thanks to an interview unearthed from The Hollywood Reporter. The Donald yesterday damned the actress in a series of tweets after she took the billionaire businessman to task during a speech at the Golden Globes for, among many other things, mimicking Serge Kovaleski, a reporter for the New York Times who has arthrogryposis.
