9 May 2015 3:34 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' dancing, with Garrett Hedlund on the right Down memory lane: Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' images At the time best known as The Twilight Saga's conflicted human Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart was cast as the exuberant Marylou in Walter Salles' film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic 1950s novel On the Road. Salles had been impressed with Stewart's pre-Twilight work in Sean Penn's Into the Wild. Based on LuAnne Henderson, Kerouac's close buddy Neal Cassady's first wife, Marylou is described as a "beautiful little sharp chick." Apparently, one who also likes to move seductively to the sound of music – as can be attested by the Kristen Stewart picture above, which first came out online in early 2011. Besides Stewart, On the Road also features Garrett Hedlund – at the time best known for Tron: Legacy – as Dean Moriarty, »

Adam Sandler's The Ridiculous Six causes more Native American controversy

4 May 2015 5:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Adam Sandler's upcoming Netflix comedy movie The Ridiculous Six has become embroiled in even more controversy

Actress Allison Young claimed to msnbc that make-up teams have been darkening the skin of actors to make them look more Native American.

The Western satire previously came under fire after Navajo actors condemned the film as being "totally disrespectful" towards their culture.

Nine people previously left the film's set after taking offence over Native American women being called 'Beaver's Breath' and 'No Bra', as well as a scene with a Native American squatting to urinate while smoking a peace pipe.

Young said of her experience shooting the film: "I'm full-blooded Navajo and they bronzed me. I was quite confused.

"That says something when the cultural advisor for the film quits because he's offended."

Netflix previously dismissed the concerns, arguing that the satire is meant to be "ridiculous".

Outrage Watch: Adam Sandler's 'Ridiculous 6' slammed as 'a total disgrace' - and not for the reasons you'd expect

30 April 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Adam Sandler's latest movie is being called "a total disgrace" -- and not for the usual reasons. Bruce Klinekole, an Apache man who was hired on as the comedy-western's Native American cultural consultant, has bashed the Netflix original project in a new interview conducted after he and a group of other Native American cast members walked off the set last week in protest of the film's treatment of Native American -- and specifically Apache -- culture. "I never saw the script at all when I first went and then I saw the wardrobe of the actors," Klinekole told Indian Country Today. "The first day, I was the only one dressed Apache. My agent told me these would be Apache scenes. Males were dressed in buckskin, which is not Apache at all. ...The ladies were also in buckskin and were wearing boots that looked like they were purchased from the »

Outrage Watch: Here's video of Native American 'Ridiculous Six' actors arguing with producers

27 April 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last week, Adam Sandler's original Netflix movie "The Ridiculous Six" made news when around a dozen Native American actors and the film's Native cultural advisor walked off the set in protest over jokes they deemed offensive, in addition to what they called gross misrepresentations of Apache culture. Now, video taken by Goldie Tom, one of the actors who took umbrage with the project, has been released that shows the group arguing with producers over the script. "You're trying to tell us what's disrespectful to us?" one of the actors rails. In another choice soundbite, an off-camera crew member tells the group: "I understand completely. But we're not going to change Beaver Breath." "Beaver Breath" (or "Beaver's Breath"), for the record, is the name of a woman Native American character in the film, one of several offenses highlighted by the group. Other complaints lobbed by the actors included inconsistencies regarding »

Vanilla Ice responds to Adam Sandler's Native American controversy on Ridiculous Six

26 April 2015 7:23 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Vanilla Ice has come to the defence of Adam Sandler upcoming Netflix comedy The Ridiculous Six over a recent backlash.

Several Native Americans working on the film walked off set last week, after condemning the film for being "totally disrespectful" towards their culture.

Nine people left after taking offence over Native American women being called 'Beaver's Breath' and 'No Bra', as well as a scene with a Native American squatting to urinate while smoking a peace pipe.

But Ice, who claims to be part-Choctaw, told TMZ that the he can see the argument from both sides, due to his roots.

"It's comedy, I don't think anybody had any ill feelings or intent or anything. This movie isn't Dancing with Wolves... it's comedy," he explained.

Ice will play Mark Twain in The Ridiculous Six. That, alone, would seem to suggest that it's a spoof film.

MTV Movie Awards predictions: Is Zac Efron still the best at being shirtless?

9 April 2015 5:12 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Shirtless Performance is a relatively new category at the MTV Movie Awards. It has been handed out only twice before, awarded to Taylor Lautner ("Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2") in 2013 and Zac Efron ("That Awkward Moment") in 2014. Efron is back this year, nominated this time for doffing his clothes in the hit comedy "Neighbors," and he's the overwhelming favorite to repeat. -Break- Last year, we predictors weren't so convinced. We actually ranked Efron fourth with 20/1 odds, behind Jennifer Aniston ("Were the Millers"), Chris Hemsworth ("Thor: The Dark World"), and our presumed frontrunner Sam Claflin ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"). We had thought, perhaps, that the "Hunger Games" juggernaut would crush any support for "That Awkward Moment," but the power of Efron's fandom took us by surprise.
