    How Warren Beatty’s Town & Country became one of Hollywood's most notorious flops

    Warren Beatty’s 2001 farce, in which he plays a super-rich architect juggling different women, is one of the biggest bombs in Hollywood history losing over $90m in total for New Line Cinema. Back in the late-1990s, director Peter Chelsom was about to break into the Hollywood big time. “Peter Chelsom was a great guy, really understands cinema, but Warren was off on a track,” said the film’s cinematographer, William Fraker, who called ‘Town & Country’ a “complete disaster”.

    What's happening with Kate Beckinsale's career?

    This is the 43-year old actress’s fourth time in the role (fifth if we count her brief cameo in prequel ‘Underworld: Rise of the Lycans’), and its emergence naturally leads us to consider the highs and lows of Beckinsale’s career thus far – and ask whether the one-time rising star might be on the rise once again. As the daughter of the late sitcom icon Richard Beckinsale (of ‘Porridge’ and ‘Rising Damp’), it’s not unreasonable to say that Kate Beckinsale came to the screen as British acting royalty of sorts. As such, she was in suitably auspicious company on her film debut in Kenneth Branagh’s celebrated 1993 Shakespeare adaptation ‘Much Ado About Nothing,’ admirably holding her own alongside such established stars as Emma Thompson, Denzel Washington, Michael Keaton, and of course Branagh himself.

    Role Recall: Kate Beckinsale Remembers 'Pearl Harbor,' Humble 'Underworld' Beginnings, and More

    These days Kate Beckinsale is probably better known for werewolf-whooping in the Underworld series than tea-sipping in costume dramas. But her roots are firmly planted in the latter. The 42-year-old London native made her movie debut in the 1993 Shakespeare adaptation Much Ado About Nothing while on summer break from Oxford before headlining fanciful fare like Cold Comfort Farm (1995) and Emma (1996).

    The Insane Story Behind Tiptoes – A Comedy Starring Gary Oldman As A Dwarf

    Gary Oldman has the “role of a lifetime” playing a dwarf, it features Matthew McConaughey and Kate Beckinsale at the height of their mainstream fame, yet it’s been called one of the worst and most tasteless movies ever made. When the British actress signed on for 2003’s ‘Tiptoes’, written and directed by cult filmmaker Matthew Bright, she agreed to do it for SAG minimum wage – with one condition. The now-63-year-old (below) had actually written the script for ‘Tiptoes’ when he was 18.
