Camerimage: ‘Chicago’ Editor Martin Walsh Reflects on Diverse Career

20 November 2014 9:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — Cutting together Rob Marshall’s “Chicago” may have won Martin Walsh an Oscar but to this day the Brit editor flees when he hears the soundtrack.

Just part of the price when you spend nine months assembling what has been described by Camerimage cinematography fest as “an editing marvel” — and one that took three times longer to edit than to film.

“I was pretty fried,” Walsh confesses. “It’s not the top of my list of things to listen to.”

Walsh, whose 30-plus films including “V for Vendetta” and “Bridget Jones’s Diary” have earned him an award this week in Poland for “unique visual sensitivity,” says it’s an important morale boost for filmmakers besides helmers and thesps to be honored.

“It’s great — it’s a rarity for us background people.”

It was probably fated that Walsh would take on a musical at some point in his career, »

Reese Witherspoon has branded Renee Zellweger's critics ''cruel and rude.'' The 38-year-old actress - who has reportedly been offered £20 million to replace the 45-year-old actress in the next installment of 'Bridget Jones' Diary' - admits she was horrified by the reaction Renee received after she displayed an astonishingly different look at Elle's 21st annual Women In Hollywood Awards at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles last month, sparking rumours she underwent extensive cosmetic surgery. Asked about the attention surrounding Renee's appearance, the 'Wild' star said: ''It's horrible. It's cruel and rude and disrespectful, and I can go on and on and on. It bothers me immensely.'' The blonde beauty also thinks actresses are put under too much pressure to look perfect all of the time. She told The Hollywood Reporter during its annual actress roundtable: ''I know this is so Pollyanna of me, »

19 November 2014 1:47 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Reese Witherspoon has got Renee Zellweger's back.

After intense media speculation about the drastically different look the 45-year-old Bridget Jones' Diary star sported in October, Reese blasted the haters during The Hollywood Reporter's recent actress roundtable.

"It's horrible," Reese, 38, said bluntly about Renee's treatment. "It's cruel and rude and disrespectful, and I can go on and on and on. It bothers me immensely."

She also blasted women who "tear other women down."

"I know this is so Pollyanna of me, but why -- and it's particularly women -- why do they have to tear women down?" she lamented. "And why do we have to tear other women down to build another woman up? It drives me crazy. Like, this one looks great without her makeup but that one doesn't look good without her makeup, and it's all just a judgment and assault that I »

Reese Witherspoon Slams Renee Zellweger's Critics: "It's Cruel and Rude"

19 November 2014 11:58 AM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Renee Zellweger has one very famous friend in her corner! Reese Witherspoon covers the new Actress Roundtable issue of the Hollywood Reporter, where she opens up about society's unrealistic expectations of women -- especially when it comes to some of Hollywood's leading ladies. Earlier this year, the "Jerry Maguire" star hit the red carpet looking a little different at the Elle Women in Hollywood event. The actress received a ton of backlash, with many accusing her for going under the knife. While the "Bridget Jones" star handled the flak like a champ, the "Cruel Intentions" actress has her own, very strong opinions about Zellweger's scrutiny. "It’s horrible. It’s cruel and rude and disrespectful, and I can go on and on and on. It bothers me immensely," Reese told the mag, referring to Renee's critics. "I know this is so Pollyanna of me, but why — and it’s particularly »

Writer Andrew Davies Talks A Poet In New York, Working With Guillermo del Toro On Beauty, Adapting War And Peace, Not Writing Bridget Jones 3, More

29 October 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Written by Andrew Davies and directed by Aisling Walsh, A Poet in New York explores the final days of adored poet Dylan Thomas (played brilliantly by Tom Hollander).  As the creator of some of the most memorable lines in the English language, he became a much-loved celebrity in the Us.  But his failing marriage and wild lifestyle led to his untimely death in 1953, at the age of 39. During this exclusive interview with Collider, acclaimed screenwriter Andrew Davies talked about the experience of writing a project about Dylan Thomas, why Dylan Thomas was a boyhood hero of his, what led him down the path of becoming a writer, and the casting process.  He also talked about why he decided to take on War and Peace, as a six-part series, collaborating with Guillermo del Toro on the script for Beauty, and that even though he was never asked to write a script »

Renee Zellweger Steps Out Looking More Like Renee Zellweger

28 October 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Renee Zellweger has nothing to hide.

Perhaps we can blame Renee Zellweger's dramatically different look at last week's Elle Women in Hollywood event to bad makeup?

The 45-year-old Oscar-winning actress stepped out in Mississippi Monday in casual workout clothes, looking more like the Bridget Jones' Diary star we all know and love. Going makeup-free, Renee clearly had nothing to hide in her first appearance since all of the uproar over her supposed new face, looking completely comfortable in a loose sweatshirt, black leggings and purple sneakers.

Zellweger herself commented on her headline-making red carpet appearance last Wednesday, explaining that she's actually glad people think she looks different.

"I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she told People. "My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that »

TV Review: ‘A Poet In New York’

28 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Watching a guy drink himself to death is never particularly fun and, in the case of a tortured artist, borders on cliche. Yet that was the fate of Dylan Thomas, the brilliant poet whose final days (and some of his earlier life) are documented by “A Poet in New York,” screenwriter Andrew Davies’ look into the demons that haunted Thomas until he succumbed at age 39. Tied to the centenary of the wordsmith’s birth, this BBC America presentation proves most notable for Tom Hollander’s brilliant performance, a showy, outsized role in an otherwise very small-scale film.

Thomas arrives in New York in 1953, wildly celebrated yet cash-strapped, banking on public appearances and a planned collaboration with composer Igor Stravinsky to bail him out. “I love this fabulous, filthy city,” he tells the two admirers squiring him about, John (Ewen Bremner) and Liz (Phoebe Fox).

Still, that quickly segues to the »

13 'Pride and Prejudice'-inspired movies, books, TV shows and more, ranked

27 October 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's a truth universally acknowledged that a person in want of a good project will adapt Pride and Prejudice-if not always to dazzling effect. The latest take, a two-part miniseries called Death Comes to Pemberley, premiered yesterday on PBS. And if there's anything P&P fans like almost as much as Austen's book, it's consuming and then critiquing the various interpretations of it. Which is why we're taking this opportunity to rank 13 different iterations of Pride & Prejudice, from the best (the 1995 miniseries starring Colin Firth is a nigh-untouchable high point) to the significantly less great. 1.

Before Renee Zellweger's new look had everyone talking, Et asked her back in 2002 if she’d ever consider getting work done.

Before Renee Zellweger's new look had everyone talking, Et asked her back in 2002 if she'd ever consider getting work done -- and her answer may surprise you.

Zellweger made news Monday when she hit the red carpet at the Elle Women In Hollywood Celebration looking noticeably different.

The 45-year-old actress declined to confirm or deny that she'd had plastic surgery, saying only, "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows."

Video: Renee Zellweger Is Now Completely Unrecognizable

When Et spoke with Zellweger in 2002 -- when the then-33-year-old star was best known for her work in Bridget Jones' Diary, and for gaining weight for the role -- she had no intention of changing her appearance.
