Julia Roberts Is Allegedly Bitter About Not Being Involved in 'Ocean's 8'

She may have starred in Ocean's 11 and Ocean's 12 alongside George Clooney and Brad Pitt in 2001 and 2004, but Julia Roberts had no involvement in the 2018 all-girls spin-off Ocean's 8 — and she's allegedly not too happy about it. "Julia said, 'I haven't seen it and I won't be seeing it,' and that was the end of that," an insider, who saw Julia at a press event for Homecoming, revealed to Star in the magazine's newest issue, on newsstands now. (Photo Credit: Splash) The source added, "When someone else brought up Ocean's 8, Julia's PR person stopped them. She looked annoyed to even be asked about it." The movie — which premiered in June — starred Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, and more. However, Julia shouldn't feel too bad — and that's because the role almost didn't happen for Sandra either! In a previous interview, Sandra revealed

Matt Smith Delivers Some Advice To Tobias Menzies Ahead Of The Crown Season 3

From the moment Netflix announced plans for The Crown, we knew it was going to be a wildly ambitious drama series.

But it’s only now that the Netflix original is changing things up for season 3 that The Crown‘s scale and scope are being put into perspective.

At the center of that impending transition is former Doctor Who star Matt Smith, who is expected to vacate the role of Prince Phillip for Tobias Menzies. The latter is just one of many newcomers to Netflix’s plush regal drama – ditto for Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter – and during his appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Smith recalled the advice he gave to Menzies about entering the Royal Family

We spoke, actually, before it. I do know him because I have done a play with him – a play that you did *points at James Corden* called the History Boys.

Matt Smith (‘The Crown’) on 1st-ever Emmy nomination: ‘It’s nice to be invited to the party’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“It’s nice to be invited to the party,” smiles Matt Smith (“The Crown”) about receiving his first-ever Emmy nomination this year. He’s nominated as Best Drama Supporting Actor for Season 2 of Netflix’s regal drama, which he divulges is “a better category for me” than the leading race. After playing Prince Philip for two seasons, Smith’s Emmy bid came at the perfect time because he recently said goodbye to “The Crown” as it’s jumping forward in time next year with all of the actors being re-cast. Watch our exclusive video interview with Smith above.

“We always knew that it would only be two years,” Smith admits about the drama’s unique strategy of swapping out its performers as the characters age. “Actually, that’s quite an appealing thing [for actors]. And if they can get it right over the six years, which I

The Crown Producer Levels On Bidding Farewell To Original Cast

The Crown is about to undergo a changing of the guard.

With Netflix pushing full steam ahead on seasons 3 and 4, the show’s swung its doors open to an entirely new cast, beginning with Olivia Colman and the supremely talented Helena Bonham Carter.

It’s been a bittersweet transition, of course, as viewers had fallen in love with The Crown‘s Og cast – namely Claire Foy, Vanessa Kirby and former Doctor Who actor Matt Smith. Turns out it was just as difficult (if not more difficult) for the creative team involved behind the scenes, as series producer Suzanne Mackie tells The Hollywood Reporter:

It was very sad to say goodbye to the season one and two cast; they were brilliant and we’d all become friends. But I don’t think any other show has recast its characters between seasons, so there is something both nerve-wracking and exhilarating too.

The Crown Season 3 Turns Liverpool Into 1960s Washington D.C. In New Set Pics

The iconic waterfront of Liverpool has been overhauled into a stand-in for 1960s Washington D.C. And we have the photos to prove it.

As filming on The Crown season 3 continues, the Three Graces and other famous areas of Liverpool played host to Netflix’s world-famous (and über-popular) regal drama earlier this week, when the Liverpool Echo was on hand to capture snaps of numerous cast members dressed in period garb.

Embedded below, the gallery is more of a general overview of The Crown‘s set, and if there was ever any doubt that Netflix’s premier drama is among the most expensive TV shows in history, let this be evidence of the massive production budget, as you’ll see a number of vintage 1960s American cars lining the streets. What’s more, nearby storefronts were transformed into retro-inspired nooks and crannies, while another building is branded as the Washington Post.

Sgt. Stubby: An Unlikely Hero Review

  • HeyUGuys
I know a primary-school teacher who struggled to build a term around the Second World War. How can you teach about the most harrowing conflict in history to a group of ten- and eleven-year-olds, without reducing them to wallowing balls of tears and fears? Sgt. Stubby, the debut feature animation from Fun Academy Motion Pictures (which wants to provide “innovative educational entertainment”), tries to do exactly that for the First World War with a friendly dog called Stubby.

Sgt Stubby: An Unlikely Hero is based on the true story of a stray dog that was ingratiated into an American regiment and became their mascot (as well as a kind of canine soldier) in the French trenches. Private Robert Conroy (Logan Lerman) is training with the other soldiers in the parade grounds of Yale University, when Stubby comes in and befriends Conroy – following him all the way to France. Through Stubby and Conroy,

The pair are replacing Julian Baring and Victoria Hamilton in the roles from the previous two seasons.

‘The Crown’ Casts Older Prince Charles, Queen Mother for Season 3 Time Jump

  • The Wrap
The royal family in Netflix’s “The Crown” is growing. The roles of Prince Charles and the Queen Mother are set for the upcoming Season 3, which will see a time jump that required the recasting of all central roles.

Josh O’Connor and Marion Bailey will play the older versions of Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth’s son, and Queen Elizabeth’s mother, respectively, the streaming service announced via Twitter Thursday. They replace Julian Baring and Victoria Hamilton in the roles.

The way Netflix has worked (and is expected to continue to work) this particular show is to swap out its actors every two seasons to allow for the progression of the story of Queen Elizabeth’s life.

Maurice review – Merchant Ivory’s Em Forster adaptation richer than ever

Hugh Grant and James Wilby star in this intensely poignant story of two young men forced to deny their love

Em Forster’s novel Maurice, unpublished in his own lifetime, often gets treated as an outlier in his work, and maybe the superlative 1987 film version, starring Hugh Grant and James Wilby, was first thought of as an outlier in the prestigious Merchant Ivory canon. This film was clearly capitalising on the 80s Varsity chic of Chariots of Fire and the TV Brideshead Revisited, but it is darker, less picturesque, more claustrophobically and even tragically male (though Judy Parfitt and Helena Bonham Carter do what they can with cameo roles). Now, Maurice, produced by Ismail Merchant and directed by James Ivory, who collaborated with Kit Hesketh-Harvey on the screenplay, is being rereleased as part of the Flare strand, showcasing Lgbt-themed films, at London’s BFI Southbank and in cinemas nationwide.

Meet the New Royals! The Crown Releases the First Images For Season 3
It's officially a new chapter of The Crown. On Monday, Netflix released the first look at Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II for season three. The English actress will be taking over for Claire Foy, who played the iconic role for the first two seasons. Wearing a pink jacket fit for royalty, the image showcases Colman giving a stern look while sipping on a cup of tea.

Colman isn't the only new cast member for the upcoming season. Since season three will take place in the late '60s and into the late 1970s, the series is replacing the main cast with new, older actors to more accurately portray the passing of time. Helena Bonham Carter has signed on to play Princess Margaret and Ben Daniels is on board as as Antony Armstrong-Jones, both of whom Netflix released first look images for as well.

The Crown Season 3 Set Pics Offer New Look At Helena Bonham Carter’s Princess Margaret

Season 3 of Netflix period drama The Crown is finally beginning to fall into place.

With filming well underway across parts of the United Kingdom, viewers have already been treated to a sneak peek of Olivia Colman in costume as Queen Elizabeth II. She’ll take over the regal role from Claire Foy, who drew praise for her delicate and nuanced performance as the British ruler all throughout seasons 1 and 2.

But now that The Crown is bracing for season 3 – and, with it, a whole new era of political drama – Colman is ready to headline the prestigious, multi award-winning Netflix drama. And she won’t do so alone, as former Harry Potter star Helena Bonham Carter has been cast as her on-screen sister, Princess Margaret.

The show’s third season, which is currently scheduled to premiere sometime next year, dives deep into Princess Margaret’s life and her ill-fated marriage to Lord Snowdon,

Vanessa Kirby: ‘I was bullied at school and became self-conscious about everything I did’

Vanessa Kirby astounded audiences as Princess Margaret in The Crown. Now she is starring opposite Tom Cruise in the new Mission: Impossible. She talks to Sophie Heawood about theatre crushes, all-night parties – and what the Queen really thought of The Crown

When I went to see Vanessa Kirby starring in Julie at the National Theatre, it turns out I picked “a really bad night. Oh God everything went wrong,” she says when we meet a few days later, in a café in Chelsea where she has just ordered scrambled eggs. In one climactic moment she has to kill a budgie on stage, but the blood capsule didn’t burst until well after she whizzed the fake bird up in the food processor. “That happened two nights in a row! But it was better than before, when we used to start the scene with a real budgie and then kill a fake one,

‘The Crown’ Star Vanessa Kirby on ‘Colorful’ Princess Margaret, ‘Mission: Impossible’
There’s nothing prim and proper about Vanessa Kirby’s Princess Margaret, who smoked, drank and fearlessly flirted her way through the first two seasons of “The Crown,” earning her an Emmy nom. But now Kirby is getting to show off her action chops as the latest femme fatale in “Mission: Impossible — Fallout,” opposite Tom Cruise, which will be released July 27. “I’m so clumsy, I wasn’t sure if I could be [an action star],” says Kirby. “But there’s something incredibly liberating and exhilarating about pretending to kill people with knives.”

How has playing Princess Margaret changed your career?

She’s given me so much, really. It was just such an amazing thing to play somebody who’s so colorful and so vivid. There’s not that many parts like that, that are in full multicolor or have vibrancy. To play somebody that has such a range of feelings and depth and such extremes of feelings.
