"Three Weeks" clue


Are you wearing that to the Oscars?

Christian Bale seems to be into wearing only training jackets during promotion for The Fighter. Here he is, all dressed up, arriving at the Writer’s Guild of America for a screening of The Fighter the other day. Dude, we get it, you’re Method.

The Director’s Guild of America just announced their top 5 today: Darren Aronofsky for Black Swan, Tom Hooper for The King’s Speech, David Fincher for The Social Network, Christopher Nolan for Inception, and David O Russell for The Fighter. So both Nolan and Russell edged out the Coen brothers’ True Grit. Very, very interesting. The DGA has traditionally been the most slamdunk of Oscar predictors. So… we’ll have to see when the Academy announces its nominations 2 weeks tomorrow.

As for Bale, well, he’s the frontrunner, probably the lock, in the Best Supporting category. Have you seen The Fighter? He is SICK ridiculous great in The Fighter. Especially when they show footage from the real guy at the end. I have to say, I liked that movie a lot more than I thought I would. In fact, I really, really liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Even Amy Adams. One of my favourite parts was when the roughneck sisters come for a visit and they all throw down and pull hair on the porch. Please. I will NEVER complain about a roughneck bitch fight in a film.

Anyway, if you’ve seen The Fighter, you might be interested in the video below about the accuracy of the final bout. It’s movie footage with real footage. Amazing.

Three Weeks


Must have been what Matt Damon and his wife Luciana told Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. And they accepted the invitation to visit them in Vancouver. Here are Emily and John leaving Vancouver on Sunday after a few days in Canada with her Adjustment Bureau co-star. They’ve been hanging out a lot the four of them after shooting that movie together. In New York quite often, and now in Vancouver where Matt’s been working on a new film for a couple of months. Emily and John stayed with the Damons at their rental property; it’s a close friendship. Let’s come back to this in a minute.

Earlier in the day, before leaving for their flight, Matt took Emily and John up the Grouse Grind. He finished well before they did. They were spotted taking the tram back down together though and graciously posed for fans who eventually recognised them.

So you know who hasn’t come to visit the Damons in Vancouver? Not that it means anything but the Afflecks haven’t come to visit the Damons in Vancouver or in New York. Or Miami. At least not in a while. They used to couple-trip all the time. Of course they all have kids and it’s harder to move them all around and break up a routine. Still, their approach to down time is rather different. Hypothetically, if you knew all kinds of secrets about your husband’s best friend, would you have a hard time hanging out with his wife?

A couple gets papped every day leading up to a pregnancy announcement - coincidence or conspiracy? Do babies make a man faithful?

That didn't take long
