Paltrow Bowled Over By Sexy Sadie And Jude

16 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Gwyneth Paltrow (photos) wishes she could be as sexy as Jude Law (photos) and his wife Sadie Frost - because they're the most passionate couple she knows. Paltrow, who starred opposite Law in Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999), says she was impressed by how passionate his relationship is with his actress wife, even after three years of marriage. Paltrow says, "We were sitting around, and all of a sudden I looked over and he was holding the inside of her wrist up to his mouth, biting it in a really sexy, charged way. Their eyes were locked together. I thought, 'Here are these two gorgeous, interesting creatures, and they found each other. It's so beautiful. I'm going to join the Frost-Law clan, become one of the nannies, and just hang out with them all the time." »

Matt Damon Denied Free Time

17 October 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie star Matt Damon is so completely inundated with his hectic lifestyle between making movies and promoting them that he never gets the chance to explore the beautiful cities that his movies are shot in. While making Legend of Bagger Vance, The (2000) in Savannah, Georgia, Matt's free time was taken up by Miramax honcho Harvey Weinstein who cracked the whip for him to do press. He explains, "I actually lamented the fact that I didn't have more days off because when we were shooting this Dogma (1999) came out and then Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999) came out so on the weekends as you can imagine every free moment was accounted for by Harvey!" He mimics the movie mogul. "Matt listen I'm gonna need you again on Saturday and Sunday I'm very sorry but don't worry I'll get you back by three in the morning and you'll be there for your five A.M. call!" However he did get the opportunity to show off the city of Venice, Italy to his family when they came to visit during the making of Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999). He recalls, "The cool thing even when I don't have free time is when my family comes. For `Ripley' they came to Venice and my brother and his wife came and they brought their son. They get a few days to walk around Venice. It certainly beats working in ahh... substitute your own nasty city!" »

Jagger Wants To Be Played By Jude Law

20 July 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mick Jagger has pin-pointed British actor Jude Law as his choice to portray him in a movie based on the Rolling Stone's life. The 57-year-old ex-husband of Texan model Jerry Hall has told friends that the Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999) Star Would be best suited for the film loosely based on the singer and the 1970s music scene. A friend of the singer said, "Jude has been pencilled in for the part - at least as far as Mick's concerned. Mick has already written the script and it's going to be filmed by Martin Scorsese. Someone suggested Jude to him, saying that the actor had the same kind of presence Mick had as a young man." Jagger says he has no plans to star in the movie himself - although he's acted with distinction in other films in the past. He says about the movie, "It's mainly about the Machiavellian deals and relationships in the record industry. " His company, Jagged Films, is currently working on its first project - a version of the Second World War thriller Enigma (2001), by ROBERT HARRIS, starring Titanic (1997) star Kate Winslet. »

Did Winona Fall For Wahlberg?

18 April 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Rumors are circulating in Hollywood that Winona Ryder and Matt Damon split up because she slept with his rival Mark Wahlberg. Damon is reported to have become so obsessed with Wahlberg that he began tracking him around the country and talking about him constantly. According to insiders, Damon, from Boston, feels that Wahlberg is more "real" because he comes from the streets of Boston instead of having his Harvard background. And Matt was concerned Wahlberg will get parts that directors feel the Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999) star is too prissy to play. Sources say Ryder visited Wahlberg to try and end the situation, but then succumbed to his charms. Ryder's representative MARA BUXBAUM says, "This is ridiculous. I've never heard anything about this. I have no idea. I can't get in touch with her because she's out of the country." Damon's representative JENNIFER GLAISEK adds, "This sounds like the dumbest story I've ever heard. I was with Matt for three weeks in Europe last month and I never heard Mark Wahlberg's name brought up once." »

Gwyneth Paltrow Turns Her Back On Miramax

28 March 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Gwyneth Paltrow has given her studio the ultimate snub - by failing to turn up to their Oscar party. The actress who last year took home the gong for Best Actress for her performance in Shakespeare in Love (1998), decided not to join her MIRAMAX friends at their prestigious party in the famous BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL. And she wasn't the only high profile star to not turn up at the party they were expected at - Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999) heart-throb Jude Law also let down the Miramax organisers. An onlooker says, "Everyone was waiting for her and Jude to arrive all night and they just didn't show. "Gwyneth especially was supposed to be the belle of the ball but she must have been having too much of a good time at the other parties. "Everyone looked really disappointed and it certainly upset a lot of her Miramax friends." »
