Philip Seymour Hoffman's Partner Mimi O’Donnell Opens Up About Late Actor's Drug Addiction

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Partner Mimi O’Donnell Opens Up About Late Actor's Drug Addiction
Philip Seymour Hoffman's partner of over 14 years remembers when she first noticed that something was "brewing" with the actor.

Mimi O’Donnell opens up in a moving essay for Vogue's January issue about first meeting Hoffman at a theater in New York City in 1999 and the beautiful love story that ensued, which included the two parenting three children, Cooper, 14, Tallulah, 11 and Willa, 9. "When I look back at how close we all were, I wonder whether Phil somehow knew that he was going to die young," she reflects. "He never said those words, but he lived his life as if time was precious."

After being sober for well over a decade, O'Donnell says Hoffman was faced with a lot of trials all at once, which led to him returning to drugs and ultimately dying from a heroin overdose in early February 2014 at the age of 46.

"His longtime therapist died of cancer, which was devastating

Cinema’s Damaged Heroine

Sarah Myles on cinema’s damaged heroine…

“Badass.”

As a word, it has become synonymous with determined women in movies. Why? Because that is how critics routinely describe them.

“Black Widow gets extra bad-ass in this Avengers 2 trailer,” said Rob Bricken of i09.

In Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron plays “a career badass who enjoys both the job and the perks with equal enthusiasm,” according to J. Hurtado of Screen Anarchy.

Kaya Payseno of Bust tells us that “Badass women star in a feminist western,” while reviewing The Keeping Room.

According to Wendy Ide of The Guardian, Wonder Woman is “A gloriously badass breath of fresh air.”

From whence does this strangely limited vocabulary come? How have we reached a point where a critic can use the word ‘badass,’ and we almost all picture exactly the same thing: a mostly solitary woman, in figure hugging/revealing costumes, scowling and being violent?

Jennifer Lawrence to star in film adaptation of Hannah Kent's Burial Rites

Film will be directed by Luca Guadagnino, whose latest, Call Me By Your Name, has been nominated for three Golden Globes

The Oscar-winning actor Jennifer Lawrence will reportedly star in and produce the upcoming film adaptation of the Australian author Hannah Kent’s award-winning 2013 novel, Burial Rites.

Kent’s novel is based on the story of Agnes Magnúsdóttir, the last woman to be executed in Iceland in 1830. A farm worker, Magnúsdóttir was sentenced to death for her part in the murder of two men and, due to the structure of the Icelandic legal system, spent her last days at an isolated farmhouse with a family of upstanding citizens watching over her. Kent’s novel reimagines the story of these final months before Magnúsdóttir’s execution.

Can We Survive Another Award Season Without Jennifer Lawrence?

Can We Survive Another Award Season Without Jennifer Lawrence?
tk Jennifer Lawrence is award season and award season is Jennifer Lawrence. The A-list actress has come to be synonymous with all things Oscars and Golden Globes. If there's a red carpet, she's there (probably) wearing Dior. If there are reporters, she's there giving them quotes like "I'm the fastest pee-er ever" and "If I don't have anything to do all day I might not even put pants on." If there's an award, she'll win it—and she'll probably trip on the way up there. If there's after party, she's pounding champagne two at a time and photobombing her famous friends. In short, she breathes light and brevity into...

The film is to be based on Hannah Kent’s novel of the same name, which tells of Agnes Magnúsdóttir — the last woman to be publicly executed in Iceland. That event took place in 1830 and was the result of her conviction for killing two men and setting their home on fire, suggesting that “Burial Rites” will be a light, airy affair that definitely won’t anger viewers for killing off J-Law’s character.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Is Tribute to X-Women, Female Strength

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Is Tribute to X-Women, Female Strength
Last week was quite a big one for fans of the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix, since fans got their first look at the Dark Phoenix that consumes Sophie Turner's Jean Grey character. We also learned about a huge twist that apparently comes halfway through the movie, along with more details about Jessica Chastain's mystery character, who is an alien shapeshifter and not Lilandra, as previously believed. Writer-director Simon Kinberg, who makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix, revealed in a new interview that he wanted this movie to focus on not just Jean Grey, but the other important female mutant characters as well. Here's what Simon Kinberg had to say below.

"I really wanted to acknowledge the strength of the women in the comic and in the actresses that we have and the central storyline demands it."

X-Men: Dark Phoenix to serve as a tribute to the women of the team

  • JoBlo
After the Dark Phoenix story-line was largely blotched in X-men: The Last Stand, Simon Kinberg will have the opportunity to redeem himself with X-men: Dark Phoenix, which will much more appropriately put Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) front and center. But it won't just be Jean Grey under the spotlight, but also the other women of the film as well, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and the... Read More...

Golden Globes Nominations: 21 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

Golden Globes Nominations: 21 Biggest Snubs and Surprises
On Monday morning, the Golden Globes reinforced the notion that Hollywood is still a boy’s club. The organization, made up of about 90 foreign journalists, seemed to go out on a limb not to nominate a single woman for best director. Not Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”). Not Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”). Not Dee Rees (“Mudbound”).

Although 2017 has been called the year of the woman, the Globes managed to overlook two of the biggest female-led hits of the year: “Beauty and the Beast,” the most successful movie of 2017 so far, was snubbed in the musical/comedy category, and “Wonder Woman” was shut out for any awards. Other surprises: Jordan Peele didn’t get a nomination for writing or directing “Get Out,” although his movie did receive two nominations (for best picture and actor).

Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” a love story between a lonely woman and a monster, led all movies with seven nominations.
