Hannah Desperate for Kids

6 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie beauty Daryl Hannah is desperate to have children, but she is determined to resist her urges until she finds the right man. The Kill Bill star, 44, admits time is running out, but she is considering adoption if her true love doesn't turn up in time. She says, "I've always longed for kids; I'd love to be a mom and I'd definitely like to have more than one. I know I'm not exactly on schedule but I still think it's on the cards. I'd like to do it with someone I love, in a stable long-term relationship. But if that doesn't happen I'll do it on my own. I have so much admiration for people who adopt." »

Hannah Quits Movies To Save Planet

19 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie beauty Daryl Hannah has turned her back on her acting career to focus on saving the planet - despite her remarkable comeback in the hit Kill Bill movies. The 44-year-old actress garnered critical acclaim for her part as villainous Elle Driver in director Quentin Tarantino's martial arts epics, helping her win a succession of high-profile film roles. But Hannah is unimpressed by her dramatic career revival, and insists her latest film, Living Neon Dreams, will be her last until she's satisfied her need to protect the environment. She explains, "Time has taught me to worry less about myself and be more compassionate about other's anxieties. I am more focused on trying to save the planet and other living creatures than on my career at the moment. I won't be doing anything for a while because I'm focused on environmental issues. I live in a solar-powered house built with eco-friendly materials and things salvaged from a 19th century barn. I also drive a 100 per cent bio-diesel car. I try to follow this ideal through all aspects of my life." »

Hannah Sued by Top PR Firm

10 June 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Kill Bill star Daryl Hannah is being sued by her former public relations firm, for non-payment of services. Bosses at Los Angeles' agency Rogers & Cowan claim they're partly responsible for the actress' recent movie comeback - but they haven't been paid for their efforts to put her back in the spotlight. In legal papers, obtained by US news show Celebrity Justice, the PR firm's lawyers claim they entered into an agreement with Hannah to promote her just before Kill Bill Vol. 1 was released. The two parties agreed a fee of $3,000-per-month plus expenses, but the PR company's bosses claim they were never paid. In the legal papers, they state they sent Hannah a bill for $64,000 but were paid just $7,000. But Hannah's manager insists his client only agreed to pay Rogers & Cowan for the months where she used their services, and she always paid up. »

'Sith' still the master of int'l boxoffice

6 June 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

SYDNEY -- Sin City had its way in Italy this weekend but failed to topple Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith in the U.K. and France in a battle for key European territories this weekend. According to estimates, Robert Rodriguez's stylized collaboration with comicmeister Frank Miller earned about $8.3 million on 1,420 screens in five countries for a solid start to its international run that is sure to please executives at Miramax. The noir adaptation of Miller's stories opened to an estimated $3.9 million in the U.K. on 450 screens. Although second behind Sith, this is nonetheless Rodriguez's biggest result in Britain, almost triple that of Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Sin City took about $2.3 million from 500 screens in France, comparable to the performance of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill-Vol. 2 but trailing Vol. 1's $3.1 million. In Italy, Sin City kicked in at No. 1, earning about $1.8 million from 400 screens, a figure 10% bigger than Kill Bill-Vol 1 and 15% up on Vol. 2. Sith was again the No. 1 picture internationally during the weekend with $36.5 million on 9,200 screens, a boxoffice drop of 40%. This brings the international cume to about $308 million. »
