While rather good at singing and dancing, Madonna's forays into film, both in front of and behind the camera, have been greeted, to put it politely, with mixed reaction. Madonna is not exactly an auteur, with a style body of work to be analyzed in the traditional sense.
At the New York premiere of W.E. at the Ziegfeld Theatre, Madonna, 53, shed some light on why the new movie she both co-wrote and directed was announced as an Oscar contender for Best Costume this morning.
Early audiences and critics have been less than enthusiastic about the second directorial effort by Madonna, W.E., a period piece about the doomed love story between King Edward VIII and his American divorcee lover, Wallis Simpson, in the 1930s.
Turning 53 seems to have only reminded Madonna that she is forever young. Appearing at the Venice Film Festival to premiere her new film, W.E., which she directed, Madonna wore a colorful and sprightly Vionnet gown and a pair of ruby slippers-inspired Miu Miu sunglasses.
Ryan Phillippe's ex girlfriend has given birth to a girl. Aspiring actress Alexis Knapp welcomed an 8 lb. baby, Kai, on July 1. Phillippe, 36, is said to have been by her side in the delivery room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, despite questions surrounding the paternity of the child.
After months of rumors, Ryan Phillippe and girlfriend Abbie Cornish hve finally split up. Cornish was seen moving her things out of the L.A. home she shared with Phillippe, according to a report in People magazine.
Ever since she stumbled on screen as that lost little girl in Somersault, actress Abbie Cornish has been campaigning hard to be accepted as a serious thespian. She has talent, no sentient being would deny that, and yet going into the release of Bright Star she still has not become a household name (despite being blamed from homewrecking Reese Witherspoon's marriage) nor has she become a critical darling (despite being able to act circles around, ahem, Scarlett Johanssen).
