Christopher Nolan praises Matthew McConaughey's quest for truth

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — It was time for a victory lap for last year's Best Actor Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as the "Interstellar" star was honored by the American Cinematheque at the Beverly Hilton's famed International Ballroom Tuesday night. A roll call of the star's leading ladies was on hand to take part in the tribute, which closed with "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan doing the honors of presenting the hardware. Kate Hudson ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," "Fool's Gold"), Anne Hathaway ("Interstellar"), Jennifer Garner ("Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," "Dallas Buyers Club") and Reese Witherspoon ("Mud") all took the stage at various moments throughout the evening to tell anecdotes and present clip packages from McConaughey's early years, his romantic comedy stretch, actioners, legal dramas and, of course, the "McConaissance" of late, as it's been dubbed. When Nolan had his turn, however, he bristled a bit at that moniker. "I'm not a believer in the McConaissance, »

Matthew McConaughey Toasts Career With American Cinematheque Honor

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matthew McConaughey cleared some misconceptions and shared a few lessons he’s learned in 22 years in Hollywood at the American Cinematheque gala Tuesday at the Beverly Hilton.

“I did not get offered the ‘Titanic’ role,” said the night’s honoree, clearing that out of the way before getting to some of his lessons.

“No. 1: The same script with $10 million attached is funnier than the same script with $1 million attached to it,” he said.

Secondly, “you have to prepare, that structure helps you play,” he added relating the story of how early in his career, carried away with the thought of being a “natural actor” he didn’t read the script till he got on set. “Then I found out it was a two-page monologue in Spanish.”

The third lesson he wanted to share was about bringing his kids on set. Early on in his career he’d thought that was a bad idea. »

A look at Screen Actors Guild predictions

15 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’ve been tackling Academy Award and Golden Globe predictions for a substantial portion of the year now, but there are of course other awards and/or precursors worth mentioning. Over the rest of the season, I’ll be trying to figure those out too, with today marking the starting point as I attempt to decode what the Screen Actors Guild might do. SAG is one of the most important precursors, mainly because it shows off what the acting branch of the Academy might be thinking. This year, with such a wide open race in almost all categories, you have to imagine that SAG will be one of the biggest guild announcements of the year. Below you’ll see my predictions in all of the SAG categories, but keep in mind that it’s early and they’re completely subject to change. For example, I’ve hung back on some »

Ryan Phillippe isn't a fan of Ryan Phillippe.

After just recently sharing an adorable story about how he and ex-wife Reese Witherspoon explained their cult classic, super sexy film Cruel Intentions to their kids, the actor is now saying that most of his movies, he wouldn't even watch. 

"I've made 30-plus films over 20 years," the 40-year-old actor tells the Los Angeles Times via Skype. "And in my opinion, five of them are good."

Further explaining the plight of an actor, Phillippe adds, "So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you're an actor for hire."

In addition to Cruel Intentions, Phillippe's critically acclaimed films include the Oscar-winning movie Crash, [link »

Ryan Phillippe Disses His Own Career: "I've Made 30-Plus Films," "Five of Them Are Good"

20 October 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

For every Cruel Intentions, there's at least one MacGruber. Ryan Phillippe has been a working actor for more than two decades now, appearing in films including Gosford Park, Flags of Our Fathers, Breach, and the Oscar-winning ensemble movie Crash. But by his own admission, the majority of the titles on his resume are, in retrospect, just filler. "I've made 30-plus films over 20 years," Reese Witherspoon's ex-husband, 40, told the Los Angeles Times in a recent Skype interview. "And in my opinion, five of them are good. [...] »

Jean-Marc Vallée's 'Demolition' Lands at Fox Searchlight, Stars Gyllenhaal and Watts

20 October 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Jean-Marc Vallée hasn't finished "Demolition," his indie drama followup to 2015 Oscar contender "Wild" and 2014 Oscar winner "Dallas Buyers Club." But already Fox Searchlight has sealed the deal, putting their faith in the Canadian-born filmmaker once again. Fox Searchlight, word has it, has picked up Us rights to "Demolition," starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Naomi Watts, after a heated bidding war and before it unleashes Reese Witherspoon-starrer "Wild" into the Oscar race on December 5. In December 2013, Focus released Vallée's "Dallas Buyers Club" and garnered the film Best Actor and Best Supporting Actors Oscars.  Vallée clearly has a way with leading Hollywood actors, leading studios to trust his instincts (see: McConaughey, Leto, Witherspoon). Another emotionally wrought indie drama for adults, "Demolition" turns on a troubled, investment banker widower (Gyllenhaal) »

Ryan Phillippe on His Own Movies: ‘5 of Them Are Good’

20 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The L.A. Times profiled Ryan Phillippe, with the actor's directorial debut Catch Hell out in theaters and VOD. Why did he write and direct a movie for himself? Self-awareness. “I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years,” he told the reporter. “And in my opinion, five of them are good." He doesn't name which five. Is he including Crash? Does Cruel Intentions lose or gain points because of Reese Witherspoon? He's probably including Gosford Park, because he got to work with Robert Altman, and MacGruber, because he got to put celery in his butt. But that's only four. Which is the fifth? »

58th BFI London Film Festival Review – Wild (2014)

20 October 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wild, 2014.

Directed by Jean-Marc Valée.

Starring Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Gaby Hoffman, Thomas Sadoski, Brian Van Holt and W. Earl Brown.

Synopsis:

A chronicle of one woman’s 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe.

After his Oscar nominated efforts for the superb Dallas Buyers Club, director Jean-Marc Vallée could have chosen pretty much anything as his next project. Courted by many more than Reese Witherspoon, it wouldn’t have been wholly surprising to have seen his name linked with bigger Hollywood projects, whether that had been a $150 million blockbuster, or indeed joining the universes Marvel and DC in the hope that he would help create the next in the ever-growing list of comic-books adaptations. But it was Wild that truly tickled the Canadian maestro, and you can see why.

Another beautifully directed film, Vallée is slowly becoming one of the best new talents in directing right now, »
