Posted in Rachel Weisz on November 9, 2010 by fadedblog

Rachel Weisz isn’t letting the demise of her relationship with her fiance get her down.

The Oscar-winning actress was in good spirits as she left her home in Manhattan today (November 9) after recently announcing she has split from acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky.

Miss Weisz has allegedly been linked to actor Daniel Craig since her split. The pair are believed to have grown close while they played husband and wife in forthcoming thriller Dream House.

A source says the 40-year-old big screen beauty was “head over heels” for Bond star Daniel, who is engaged to producer Satsuki Mitchell.

“Rachel and Daniel simply sparked during the filming of Dream House in Canada,” said an insider. “They have great chemistry. Darren’s such a good and responsible man, but Daniel’s the opposite extreme, he’s brooding and mysterious. Darren and Rachel have simply grown apart, they spent long periods away from each other, moving in different directions.”

Rachel and Darren have been together for nine years and have a four-year-old son named Henry.



Posted in Taylor Momsen, Tim Gunn on September 15, 2010 by fadedblog

Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn recently shot a guest spot as himself on the fourth episode of this season’s Gossip Girl.

And while most of the cast was pleasant, Tim did not mince words when it came to working with Taylor Momsen.

“What a diva!” he tells E! of the 17-year-old. “She was pathetic, she couldn’t remember her lines, and she didn’t even have that many. I thought to myself ‘why are we all being held hostage by this brat?'”

Tim says the main problem was her constant BlackBerry use. “I’d say, ‘You know, young lady, there are hundreds of thousands of girls who are just as attractive and even smarter than you. Why are you acting like this show is a huge burden on you?’ She was on her phone during every break, I wanted to tell her, ‘If you weren’t on your BlackBerry, you can retain this stuff.”’


Posted in Darren Aronofsky, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz, Winona Ryder on September 14, 2010 by fadedblog

It was all eyes on Natalie Portman as she attended the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Black Swan at Roy Thomson Hall on Monday night (September 13).

Joined by co-stars Winona Ryder, Barbara Hershey and Vincent Cassel as well as director Darren Aronofsky and his wife Rachel Weisz, the 29-year-old actress was on hand to debut her new pyschological thriller to Canadian audiences.

To prepare for the role of Nina, Natalie (already tagged as Oscar bait) reportedly studied ballet for ten months.

She stars as an insecure, self-mutilating prima ballerina who becomes unravelled as she gets her big break—a chance to play both the White Swan and the Black Swan in an adventurous production of Swan Lake.

The movie has been called a ballet answer to The Wrestler. Mostly due to the fact that it comes from the same director.


Posted in Bechet Allen, Manzie Tio Allen, Soon-Yi Previn, Woody Allen on August 24, 2010 by fadedblog

Film director Woody Allen, his wife Soon-Yi Previn, and adopted daughters Bechet and Manzie Tio spent a lovely afternoon together strolling through the streets of Oviedo, Spain on Monday (August 23).

The happy foursome could be seen greeting fans and taking in the sights and scenery while the 74-year-old filmmaker kept a close eye on his preteen daughter Manzie.

As you may recalll, the city of Oviedo was featured prominently in Woody’s movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona. He first fell in love with the city when he was given a prize for the Arts from the mayor in 2002.

Now let’s just hope that’s all he falls in love with.
