Critics Awards All Over the Map

17 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Three groups of critics . two on the East Coast, one on the West . recently chimed in with their picks for the year's best, and they were pretty much all over the map. Film critics in Los Angeles and Boston announced their choices over the weekend, with About Schmidt charming L.A. and the critics of Beantown making a surprise choice with Roman Polanski's The Pianist. The New York Film Critics Circle added to the obfuscation of any Oscar favorites by going with art house fave Far From Heaven. In fact, the New Yorkers bestowed five awards on Todd Haynes' ode to Douglas Sirk: Picture, Supporting Actor (Dennis Quaid), Supporting Actress (Patricia Clarkson), Director, and Cinematography. In a surprise upset, Diane Lane was chosen best actress over Heaven's Julianne Moore for her performance in Adrian Lyne's Unfaithful; Daniel Day-Lewis walked away with the lead actor award for Gangs of New York. In Los Angeles, About Schmidt's Jack Nicholson tied with Day-Lewis for the lead actor award, while Julianne Moore picked up the Best Actress award for both Far From Heaven and The Hours. Other L.A. awards included Chris Cooper (supporting actor for Adaptation), Edie Falco (supporting actress for Sunshine State) and Pedro Almodovar (director for Talk To Her). Boston critics heaped awards on The Pianist's Adrien Brody (lead actor) and Roman Polanski (director), and made other surprise choices for lead actress (Maggie Gyllenhaal for Secretary), supporting actor (Alan Arkin for 13 Conversations About One Thing) and supporting actress (Toni Collette, named for both About a Boy and The Hours). All the critics did agree on one thing, though: Alfonso Cuaron's Y Tu Mama Tambien was named best foreign film by all three groups. --Prepared by IMDb staff »

Martinez Doesn't Do Nude

14 June 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Olivier Martinez kept his clothes firmly on in new film Unfaithful--because he's shy. Even though his co-star Diane Lane dares to bare in the new drama, Martinez has ruled out stripping on screen. He says, "I'm never naked in the movie, because I don't play naked--because I'm shy. Sometimes we are actors, but we are also human beings. Different personalities and different behaviors. And I'm an actor who doesn't play naked." »

Gere Tries To Shake Off Gigolo Image

11 June 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Richard Gere claims he's still trying to shake off his sex symbol image--created in 1980 movie American Gigolo. Despite making many films in the twenty-two years since the memorable movie, the star says many people who have watched his performance in his new flick Unfaithful, where he plays a husband of a cheating wife, find it hard to shake off their expectation that he should be the stud. He laughs, "Everyone keeps asking me about that. 'Wait a minute, you are the gigolo, how can there be another gigolo?'" However, the generous star is happy to give all the credit to his co-star Olivier Martinez, saying, "The truth is Olivier is much better than me. I guarantee all the ladies, he is much better!" »

Mira Sorvino Falls Out Of Favor With Females

15 May 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mira Sorvino has found the attention she gets since dating French heart-throb Olivier Martinez quite alarming - women now hate her. The Oscar-winner, 34, admits that she hasn't been a favorite among her fellow females since striking up a romance with the Unfaithful hunk. But Mira is adamant she doesn't care and vows to keep her claws on Oliver. She says, "Some crazy Spanish magazine voted him the sexiest man in the world. It's only a matter of time until America gets caught up. And yes, I've had women come up to me with angry looks. But he's mine and I'm not letting go." »

Gere Fails To See Eye-to-Eye With Director

13 May 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Richard Gere and director Adrian Lyne had a tough time working together on the erotic thriller Unfaithful - because they disagreed on almost everything. Lyne wanted his star to appear a little podgy in a bathtub scene, so he kept sending cookies and ice cream to Gere's trailer. But the actor did just the opposite, working out extra hard for the scene. Lyne also decided to change the film's ending, at Gere's request, to improve the flick's "karma". However, after fielding complaints from journalists who felt the film's conclusion was too tidy, Lyne reverted to his original, more ambiguous ending and cut the final scene. »

Gere's Director Wins Ambiguous Ending Fight

8 May 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Richard Gere's new film has an ambiguous climax, after director Adrian Lyne won a battle of wills with the movie's producers. The British filmmaker, whose previous credits include Fatal Attraction, managed to convince 20TH Century Fox studio chiefs that Unfaithful's ending should not be reshot to make it simpler. He explains, "I hate it when things are tied up so neatly or are so predictable that audiences stop talking about the movie the moment they hit the parking lot. "The ending as it is now will cause a great deal more discussion and that's what I want for my films. "It is a movie about adultery and revenge. By nature it has to be controversial." »
