The star-studded official video for Paul McCartney’s “Queenie Eye” makes it premiere on Vevo. he Making of Queenie Eye takes a look at how McCartney crafted his new music at Abbey Road Studios, and includes appearances from Johnny Depp, Tom Ford, Meryl Streep and Chris Pine. In the video, McCartney is seen sharing stories from his Beatle days and how “Love Me Do”was recorded.
Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp reunited with his former supermodel girlfriend Kate Moss on the set of Paul Mccartney’s promo shoot in London for his latest track.
The Pirates of The Carribean star and Moss split in 1998 after dating for four years, but they got together again when they were both invited to appear in The Beatles legend’s promo for his new song Queenie Eye.
It will be the first time the former couple appears on screen together since the split.
A source tells Britain’s Daily Record, “There were a whole host of celebrities taking part. It was a really mixed bunch. Meryl Streep and Gary Barlow were in the studio and there was an audience on set. But the big talking point was Kate and Johnny.
“They try to avoid one another in public as there have been raw emotions in the past, but neither could say no to Macca. They only have little roles, but it’s the first time they’re appearing on screen together since their split.”
Actor Tommy Lee Jones is set to write and direct a remake of John Wayne’s classic 1972 film The Cowboys.
The Men In Black star will revamp the movie, based on a novel by William Dale Jennings, for modern audiences in his third project as director, reports Variety.com.
The original starred Wayne and Bruce Dern and followed the story of a rancher forced to train a group of novices for a cattle drive.
Jones previously stepped behind the camera for 2005’s The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, while he has also directed forthcoming drama The Homesman, in which he co-stars with Meryl Streep, James Spader and Hilary Swank.
Jennifer Lawrence has set the record straight about her “What does it say? I beat Meryl” comment in her Golden Globes acceptance speech for best actress in a motion picture comedy. During an interview with David Letterman on Tuesday’s The Late Show Lawrence said she meant no disrespect towards Meryl Streep; she was simply quoting a line from the 1996 movie First Wives Club starring Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn.
“It’s never a good idea for me to wing it, but it was a quote from First Wives Club!” the Silver Linings Playbook actress explained. “Bette Midler was talking about a Globe — I can’t believe nobody has ever done it before — where she says, ‘Look what it says, it says I beat Meryl.'”
The comment prompted some viewers, including Lindsay Lohan, to criticize Lawrence’s choice of words. “No one should ever mess with a legend, such as Meryl Streep,” Lohan tweeted.
Lawrence is sure she did not offend Streep. “First of all, it’s Meryl Streep. You can’t offend Meryl Streep. And then all of the sudden I hate Meryl Streep. Is that what this turned into? I don’t like Meryl Streep? As if I had my eyes on getting that girl forever and I was like, ‘Finally! I knew it would happen one day!'”
“I wanted to make a public statement and say, ‘Hey idiots. It’s a quote from a movie,'” Lawrence added.
AFI Life Achievement Award honoree Meryl Streep will present Shirley MacLaine with the American Film Institute’s 40th Life Achievement Award – America’s highest honor for a career in film. The private black tie gala will be held at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City on June 7 and will air on TV Land on Sunday, June 24 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Streep, who was honored with the AFI Life Achievement Award in 2004, played MacLaine’s daughter in POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE (1990). Both actresses are multiple Academy Award recipients. Streep, nominated a record 17 times, including for POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE, won for THE IRON LADY (2011), SOPHIE’S CHOICE (1982) and KRAMER VS. KRAMER (1979) while MacLaine, nominated six times, won for her portrayal of Aurora Greenway in TERMS OF ENDEARMENT (1983).
Luminaries from across the film community will join Streep to celebrate the career of Shirley MacLaine, one of America’s treasured motion picture artists. MacLaine will be recognized for her breadth of talents as an actress, songstress, author, director and producer.
“The world loves Shirley MacLaine,” said Bob Gazzale, President and CEO of AFI. “AFI’s challenge will be how to fit it all into one evening because hers is a life that spans from movies to television to Broadway, books and beyond. Perhaps more than any other recipient, with Shirley I would underline the word life in Life Achievement Award,” he said. “Hers is a story more than just movies. It’s an epic journey, and she has invited all of us to come along for the ride.”
“It is sure to be a magical evening celebrating Shirley’s career, especially with Meryl Streep and many other stars who will be on hand,” remarked Larry W. Jones, President, TV Land. “Shirley’s storied film and television career is so rich and colorful, it will be an unforgettable tribute.”
Proceeds from the AFI Life Achievement Award gala directly support the Institute’s national education programs and the preservation of American film history. The invitation-only event will take place on historic Stage 15 at Sony Pictures Studios, where THE WIZARD OF OZ, GRAND HOTEL, SPIDERMAN and other classic movies were filmed. The stage will be transformed into an elegant ballroom to honor the expansive career of Shirley MacLaine.
In New York, where the competitive actor professional seems more intense with each passing day, every so often a new face comes along that feels like a perfect fit. REBECCA BRUDER, hailing from Clearwater, Florida, is one such case. Growing up in Georgia, her inner actress was revealed and she began to study acting, voice, movement and dance. She even gained a BFA in Acting from the University of North Carolina. In 2006, Rebecca travelled to Scotland as a participant in the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival. She performed in the satirical comedy and Tony Award winning musical, Urinetown, which was being staged there. She humbly describes the entire experience as a pivotal moment in which she truly learned to embrace her quirky, goofy self and gain trust in her own quiet assurance. With performances under her belt such as The Tempest, Picasso at the Lapin Agile and Evil Dead; the Musical, it is clear that her available range of character portrayal is expansive. Rebecca exposes a little giggle as she describes her time in Evil Dead. “I rolled around on the floor soaked in fake blood and it was in that moment I completely lost all of my inhibitions!” Her broad experience also extends into the quirky independent film world. Never taking herself too seriously and a major admirer of offbeat Wes Anderson productions, Rebecca hopes to flex her comedic side by taking on intelligent humor in Film and Television. She fantasizes of working with the likes of Gene Hackman and Meryl Streep but admittedly has intently followed Anne Hathaway’s career with great admiration and respect. Having aligned herself with noted theatrical manager William Schill, several significant opportunities await her in film, stage and TV. Adds Schill, “She’s a captivating individual; just what’s needed in many of the NY-TV shows being shot here right now, like ‘Blue Bloods’ and ‘Person Of Interest.’ She has exactly what these shows are looking for. A formidable presence.”
Remember the name, Rebecca Bruder; you’ll see it in lights shortly.
Actress Meryl Streep feared her career was over when she turned 40 because she was convinced directors had no use for women past “childbearing age”.
The icon won critical acclaim early in her career with starring roles in Out of Africa, Sophie’s Choice, and A Cry in the Dark but Streep confesses she entered the 1990s concerned that film projects would be few and far between.
She tells the new issue of Vogue magazine, “I remember turning to my husband and saying, ‘Well, what should we do? Because it’s over.'”
Streep’s fears were momentarily realised when she received three consecutive scripts to play a witch – forcing Streep to come to terms with the pitfalls of ageing: “Once women passed childbearing age they could only be seen as grotesque on some level.”
Ironically, the actress is still one of the most sought-after stars in Hollywood but she admits it’s no coincidence most of her roles – like those in The Devil Wears Prada, Mamma Mia!, Julie & Julia and It’s Complicated – involve Streep playing “women whose usefulness had passed.”
