Squabbling, random nudity, porn and rage … If the tales coming off the set are true, the troubled star's latest movie could be her most deranged yet

Lost in Showbiz knows pain. All addictions bring terrible side effects: those addicted to gambling lose their life savings, and those addicted to cocaine lose their septum. Poor LiS's terrible addiction to American movie awards ceremonies has brought with it the kind of pain that drives a person to therapy five times a week: watching Anne Hathaway clowning about with a stoned James Franco; seeing Forrest Gump beat Pulp Fiction; the horror of Dead Poets Society getting the best original screenplay Oscar over When Harry Met Sally. That is how stupid the Oscars are.

So we shouldn't be surprised by how terrible this year's likely winners are. But really, Silver Linings Playbook? The movie that makes Rain Man look like a brutally realistic depiction of a developmental disorder? »
