SJP Won’t Play Bradshaw Role Again

Standard

Sex & The City‘ actress Sarah Jessica Parker has been included in ‘ELLE‘ magazine’s ‘Women In Hollywood‘ issue, and has a few words to say about any future acting roles that she chooses: “I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved ‘Sex & The City‘s Carrie and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.”

And she won’t be giving any acting tips to her predecessor AnnaSophia either: “I would never give advice. No, no, no. It’s like someone giving romance advice or parenting advice. It’s such a unique experience, playing a part and I’m sure they found someone wonderful.”

Kim Cattrall Loves “50 Shades”

Standard

She played raunchy sexaholic Samantha Jones on ‘Sex & The City‘ for many years, so it’s only natural that actress Kim Cattrall has a bit of a dirty streak to her. Now she has done little to diminish rumours of her playing the role of Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of kinky novel ‘50 Shades of Grey‘- a part that half of Hollywood is clamoring for.

She told ‘The Sun‘: “No one has told me about that, but I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It’s fun – whatever turns you on. All these women of a certain age are finally having fun and what’s wrong with that? We’re all adults.”

Sarah Jessica Parker Joins ‘Glee’

Standard

Sarah Jessica Parker has been cast as an editor for ‘Vogue.com‘ in an upcoming episode of ‘Glee‘. Fashion royalty and notorious ice queen Anna Wintour has been called in to select her outfits for the appearance in series 4 of the hit tween drama, which is why they spent some quality time yesterday discussing her potential looks over lunch in New York at ‘Balthazar‘ restaurant.

Glee‘ creator Ryan Murphy disclosed details of the latest celeb cameo via Twitter yesterday: “Guess who’s helping us with Sarah Jessica Parker‘s costumes on ‘Glee‘? The amazing Anna Wintour!”

‘SATC’ Actress Marries Girlfriend

Standard

Sex & The City‘ actress Cynthia Nixon has married her long-term girlfriend of 8 years, Christine Marinoni. She wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera to the New York nuptials yesterday. Her publicist confirmed to ‘People Magazine‘: “Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, were legally married in the state of New York.”

The couple share a son Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, which Christine gave birth to last year. Cynthia also has a daughter Samantha and son Charles from a previous relationship with Danny Mozes. She only became a lesbian after ending her 15-year-long relationship in 2003, and she and Christine got together in 2004. The couple got engaged in 2009 at a rally to support gay marriage, and in 2010, Cynthia said: “I’m enjoying being engaged very much. I don’t mind a long engagement, which this one is surely turning out to be.”

The New Carrie Bradshaw

Standard

AnnaSophia Robb is the name on everybody’s lips today; she’s just been confirmed as the person who’ll play a teenage Carrie Bradshaw in the TV adaptation of Candace Bushnell‘s teen novel, ‘The Carrie Diaries.’

Being just 18-years-old, she definitely fits the bill, as she’s blonde, skinny, and has almost identical facial features to predecessor Sarah Jessica Parker. Her acting career to date has seen her be cast as surfer Bethany Hamilton in the ‘Soul Surfer‘, and has also appeared in ‘Race to Witch Mountain‘, and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory‘.

The show’s plot will revolve around Carrie‘s initial move to New York, where she discovers her love of writing and fashion in her late teens. The show will be produced by ‘Warner Bros.‘, and its pilot will air in the States on the ‘CW‘ channel in May.

Demi Moore Leaves Hospital

Standard

Demi Moore was released from LA‘s ‘Sherman Oaks‘ hospital on Friday after a 4 night stay. She was hospitalised after smoking some sort of drug, rumoured to be ‘Salvia‘, when she began to lose consciousness.

In a leaked ‘LAPD‘ phone call, a friend of the actress describes Demi as being “semi-conscious, barely”. She suffered a seizure at a birthday party she was hosting at her home, and although she was reportedly treated for anorexia and substance abuse, friend Patty Jenkins says she is recovering.

Patty told ‘E! Online‘: “I just saw her and she’s doing great. I think she’s doing much better than it’s made out to be. Demi is awesome and so strong. I also hate when people make it a bigger drama than what is going on. She’s great.”

The star’s friend can be heard on the tape of the call saying: “We need an ambulance here as soon as possible. Why is an ambulance not on its way right now? She smoked something. It’s not ‘Marijuana‘, but it’s similar to, it’s similar to incense, and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort. She’s been having some issues lately with some other stuff, so I don’t know what she’s been taking.”

Coincidentally, ex Ashton Kutcher returned to LA on Friday after a holiday to Brazil.

Her mini melt-down means that she will no longer be able to take the role in biopic ‘Lovelace‘, and Sarah Jessica Parker is said to have been lined up as her replacement.

Shears In The City: A Bald Miranda

Standard

Cynthia Nixon (aka Miranda Hobbes from ‘Sex & The City‘), has shaved her hair off for an acting role. Her latest project is about a cancer patient in a Broadway show called ‘Wit‘, which starts today. The actress, who is famous for her red bob, will play a professor called Vivian Bearing at the ‘Samuel J. Friedman Theatre‘ in New York.

In the publicity shots, she is sporting a very gaunt frame, and is sitting on a hospital bed whilst eating an iced-lolly, and being treated by a nurse.

She was seen for the first time minus her usual hair earlier this week on ‘Live With Kelly.’ She told host Kelly Ripa: “I thought it was kind of gonna be no muss-no fuss, but I have to shave it every day! It’s got kind of a five o’clock shadow, and you don’t want to go on with that. I was always kind of curious to see what it would be like. I like it; I don’t think I’m gonna keep it forever.”

Her own brush with cancer in 2006 no doubt influenced her decision to accept the role. She herself discovered she had the early stages of breast cancer during a routine mammogram, and sought treatment for it.
