Why I love the original Charlie’s Angels films

To prepare for the release of the latest Charlie’s Angels film (see review here), I decided to rewatch the previous two starring Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore. It wasn’t really necessary as I know them so well I can quote many lines but it was an excuse to watch two movies that I love so much. And why I am such a big fan, you ask? Let me count the ways.

Charlie’s Angels: Film Review

I cannot overstate how much I love the original Charlie’s Angels films starring Cameron Diaz (I miss her), Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore. I have seen them countless times, have them on DVD and can quote them a fair bit. I don’t feel the world is really ready for a new instalment in the franchise but this one still deserves a chance.

My favourite kick-ass screen heroines

Atomic Blonde comes out today and I bloody loved it (read review here) and mostly because Charlize Theron portrays such a badass heroine who just wipes the floor with everyone she comes up against. She is basically awesome.

Miss You Already: Film Review

miss1

I feel like we have had a lot of cancer films recently and while Miss You Already is good addition to the roster, it doesn’t stand up to The Fault in Our Stars and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl for me. This will appeal more to adults though, and it is a less romanticised take on the disease, so it is still refreshing and worth a watch.

Bella Thorne talks Scream TV series & Amityville: The Awakening

Bella Thorne in The Duff

Bella Thorne in The Duff

During my interview with Bella Thorne, we moved on from questions about her high school comedy The Duff to talk about her upcoming projects, which see her turn away from the Disney Channel/tween route she started on and move into a genre she adores – horror. Thorne stars in the upcoming Amityville: The Awakening and will soon be filming a small role in the Scream TV series – playing Drew Barrymore’s character (if you don’t watch that means watch this video).

Pics: GLAAD Awards 2013 Fashion

The GLAAD group campaign for equal rights in the LGBT community and their media awards commend TV show, films, musicians, books, theatres shows, articles which they believe give an accurate representation of LGBT people and their issues in life.

A lot of celebrities came out to celebrate these awards in LA last night. Not many of these people were nominated but they generally attend to raise the profile of the organisation and show their support for the LGBT community.

The show was hosted by Drew Barrymore and had performances from Glee’s Darren Criss and Kelly Rowland. Ex-President Bill Clinton was honoured with an “Advocate for Change” Award.

Here are the best and worst dressed ladies of the night.

 

BEST 

Charlize Theron

yes1

Charlize looks stunning in this jumpsuit! Love it!

Naya Riviera

yes3

This dress accentuates her curves perfectly. I don’t like the slicked back hairstyle, but she still looks damn good.

Kelly Rowland

yes2

This is such a bold outfit. It is striking and Kelly totally works it.

Kirsten Dunst

yes4

I wasn’t sold on this at first, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked it.

WORST 

Jennifer Lawrence

no2

I’m saying this is an awful dress- I just think that Jen can do SO MUCH BETTER. The sheer top part and the shoes aren’t good. Her legs look covered in bruises too! Come on, Jen, I want to be impressed! I love her shorter hairstyle though.

Ali Larter

no3

This is a bit too casual for the red carpet. It ruffles a lot in the middle so it looks a bit messy.

Drew Barrymore

no1

This is truly awful and she is the host! She looks like she’s wearing a mattress cover.

Maria Menounos

no4

This would have been okay if it was all long or all short- I don’t like that it is both.

Plenty of other celebrities came out to support the LGBT cause including: Leonardo DiCaprio, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Justin Bartha, Elle Fanning, Tobey Maguire, Logan Lerman, Ashley Benson and Chris Evans. That’s quite a turn out!

Big Pics: Drew Barrymore, Lindsay Lohan & Leo DiCaprio

Drew Barrymore

How adorable is this picture?! Drew Barrymore showed this picture to Oprah Winfrey during an interview. Olive was born in September and she looks brilliant in this lobster costume.

Leonardo DiCaprio

leo1

Is that Naomi Campbell with Leo on his yacht?! I didn’t  realise they were friends- but apparently, they’ve known each 0ther since the 90s- before Leo’s big acting break in Romeo + Juliet. It’s so odd seeing them together though. The pair were moored off the coast of Miami.

Lindsay Lohan

Hmm…what’s going on here?! I thought Max and Lindsay had stopped seeing each other but this picture she tweeted certainly says something different.

Katie Holmes

suri

Don’t you just love it when Suri has a strop?! Katie is doing her best to ignore her tantrum while on the streets in Manhattan.

Una Healy

una1

The Saturdays have only just had their first US magazine cover as a group and Una has managed to bag one of her own. Here she is with her daughter Aofie Belle on the cover of family magazine BC. The group’s reality show Chasing The Saturdays began on Sunday.

Big Pics: Drew Barrymore, Justin Bieber & Anne Hathaway

Justin Bieber

justin

Justin clearly hates the paparazzi and after his last altercation with one, who wanted to press charges, you would think Justin would try his hardest to ignore them. Instead he threw a bottle at a pap, who captured the boy’s attitude on camera.

Drew Barrymore

drew2

Here’s the first glimpse of Drew’s baby Olive! Her first child was born in September and this is the first time we’ve seen her. Drew married Olive’s father, Will Kopelman, in June this year.

Simon Cowell

simon

Is this Simon Cowell’s new lady?! The X Factor judge was seen leaving a restaurant with Janina Gavankar- an actress you may recognise from True Blood. She also looks a lot like he’s ex-fianceé, Mezhgan Hussainy.

Anne Hathaway 

anne1

What hideous shoes?! Why do they need to have so many buckles and be half-boot, half-heel?! So gross. Anne keeps a smile on her face despite the fact that paps managed to get a crotch shot of her getting out of her car at the New York premiere of Les Misérables. Perhaps she should have worn knickers!

Speaking of the incident, Anne said: “I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn’t realize it until I saw all the photographers’ flashes. It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.”

Drew Barrymore becomes a mum

Drew Barrymore has given birth to a daughter finally. I feel like she’s been pregnant forever!

Her daughter, Olive, was born last week. Drew is married to the father, Will Kopelman.

In a statement, the pair said, “We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born Sept. 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”

Awww! I so happy for them! I’m sure Drew will be a fab mum and the name is a lot more normal than I was expecting!
