but it will always be berlin premiere

‘It was great fun. I was really attracted by the deliberate misdirection of the script. He [Murphy’s character, Tom] doesn’t look mentally well. For any actor, to start a part in one place and then end up somewhere completely different is really wonderful. That really appealed to me. When I saw the cast that Sally Potter had gathered, it was obviously a no-brainer. I’ve watched and have been a fan of these people since I was very young. You’re always learning as an actor, it  never stops, and it was a real joy to watch these actors work.’ — Cillian Murphy, pictured with the cast of ‘The Party’ at the red carpet premiere, Berlin Film Festival

what are your favorite red carpet/public appearance looks from Megan? My personal fave was the pink dress she wore to the Moscow Transformers premiere! She looked so old Hollywood glamour. Berlin premiere was amazing too & the Golden Globes in 2009, 2014 Kids Choice Awards, Breakthrough Awards & Juno premiere she had phenomenal hair & makeup. The whole first TMNT press tour was ultimate skin goals for me as well. She's basically always a glowing magical goddess it's so hard to choose favorites

I agree so much! I really loved the dresses she wore for the Transformers premieres, all colorful, chic and fun! She seems to aim for something more sensible lately, I don’t hate it, I just love her older fashion style back in 2007 and 2009. xD Those are some damn good looks she had, and here’s my personal faves. xD I went overkill tbh but it is so hard to narrow it down.

Hey :) love your blog, but sadly I always have important questions and you answer none. Anyway, could you pleaaaaaaseeeeee answer this one, it's quite important to me. There's this link from Berlin Hobbit premiere that Martin is talking on the phone with Ben's dad and then Ben looks around to see if anyone's filming or noticing. Then he puts his hands on Martin's elbows to make him turn around but Martin's so engaged in the conversation that he doesn't understand. Ben block Martin's mouth part 1

Part 2 So Ben blocks the fans view to Martin’s mouth by putting a hand in front of it. And there’s this weak voice of Martin talking but saaaaaaaaaadly it’s not understandable. Can you tell what the conversation was about that Ben covered Martin’s mouth for it???????????? Thanks for answering

Sorry, I don’t have all the answers. Could be because they were talking about Ben’s dad’s upcoming Sherlock cameo and he wanted to avoid spoiling fans? No idea.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Dean loves taking photos almost as much as he likes acting. 

Portraits (which are extremely difficult) are among his favourites: he always looks for a different angle, a different perspective to portrait people.

He took Aidan’s picture in a Berlin hotel (they were there for the DOS premiere). Aidan is not smiling and he doesn’t look directly into the camera: the mirror gives us an unusual angle and the focus is on his hands as well.

Emmett is a big, cheerful and smiling guy: the black and white picture and the closed fist make him a brooding and intense young man, trying to express his inner deepest feelings.

Craig has often played dark or dangerous characters because of his interesting face and intense gaze. The use of two colours only, white background matching his white tee, and light denim jacket matching exactly the light blue of his eyes, gives him an almost angelic quality.

That’s why these wonderful photos are in these actors’ personal portfolios, even  on IMDB.

What’s Dean’s photo on IMDB?

His worst. By far.

Almost unrecognizable. When I first looked for him on IMDB I remembered him vaguely from a TAJ still, but this pic took me aback.

Will somebody please change it? Maybe his agent could have it removed?

anyonelisteningwhoeveryouare  asked:

Whats your opinion on the whole Martin and Ben drama? I personally see nothing wrong. I think Martin was being sarcastic but I don't know. I don't think they could continue with the show if they hated each other because they said they wanted friendship off screen for the characters to make the show more believable. I guess time will only tell when they begin having set-lock footage and pictures.


I wrote you a novel. I’m sorry.

I can see both sides. Things that seem like they might be off can also be easily explained. Martin said Ben could go fuck himself. It sounded serious but Martin says that kind of shit all the time. There was that interview last year where he called Ben a motherfucker and implied he hoped he died and then minutes later was talking about Ben’s childhood and how influenced his desire to play a talking dragon (which is something he brought up several times during that promo tour). And then Martin full on ignored Ben at the BotFA premiere. But people who were there said that wasn’t true and then again he did that at the first DOS premiere, too, and shortly after that, they were all affectionate at the Berlin premiere and BFI premiere. There was no mention of Sherlock on SNL, but Martin’s said that he wouldn’t participate in a Sherlock parody because he’s that serious about it. So, who knows?

I think what I like about them, which we don’t talk about enough, is that their relationship isn’t always sunshine and retraftas and dirty jokes. Ben’s talked about how they’ll wear on each other sometimes when they get grumpy. For me, that’s what makes them interesting and is indicative of a deeper connection. Because the people that I bicker and disagree with and make insulting jokes about are usually the people who are closest to me. 

Here’s what I’m left with: We don’t know anything. Everyone is just speculating and projecting. Myself included. But I agree with you, we’ll know more once setlock starts up next month. I think that, regardless of what has or hasn’t happened, human people who love each other (no matter what brand of love they feel) want to forgive. And if you’re working long days with someone you click with, animosity can just feel like unfinished business. So if there is something, I’m hopeful they’d be able to resolve it. 

tl;dr: no one knows anything but i love that we’re talking about it

'Hunger Games' stars take their final bow with 'Mockingjay: Part 2'
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth come together one last time.

LOS ANGELES — Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth should be given a break when it comes to fully comprehending basic memories before the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 on Nov. 20.

Even something as momentous as a handprint ceremony at the famed TCL Chinese Theater. That slips their collective minds just five (crazed) hours later, before the cement is even fully dry.

“Was that today?” Lawrence asks aloud, looking for support from her co-stars.

“We have no concept of time right now,” Hemsworth shrugs.

“None at all,” Hutcherson adds.

It’s a fitting testament to the action-filled Hunger Games mega-franchise as it propels to its final installment with Mockingjay — Part 2. Four career-changing films for the trio crammed into four years — with super-packed schedules at international events and already a billion-dollars-plus in the Hunger Games box office coffers.

The pandemonium had just begun during a laughter-filled group discussion on a shared couch at Los Angeles’ Four Seasons Hotel. It preceded farewell premieres in Berlin (Nov. 4), London (Nov. 5), Paris (Nov. 9), Madrid (Nov. 10) and Beijing (Nov. 12) before Monday’s Los Angeles premiere and New York’s (Nov. 18). Grueling? Yes. But it’s a final chance to see firsthand the impact the film adaptations of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novels have had on an adoring worldwide public.

“I see it at these fan events and premieres,” Lawrence says. “I see it when you’re face-to-face with people who love your movie so much that they’ll sleep in tents for days.”

“Umm, it’s called camping,” Hutcherson points out.

“Touche,” Lawrence says. “But yes, it’s hard to miss.”

It’s also hard to miss the clear bond the actors have developed over the staggering 152 days of shooting for Part I and Part 2 in Paris, Berlin and Atlanta. Publicly, they are a united front whether being immortalized à trios in cement or unified on each premiere red carpet.

Even when cameras are not rolling, they appear tight-knit, finishing each other’s sentences and swapping conspiratorial tales in downtime. On this Halloween afternoon, it’s allowing Hutcherson to talk excitedly about paying $30 to have cat food thrown on him at the previous night’s horror festivities (“You paid for that?” says Lawrence, arching her eyebrow).

This bond was only enhanced with the entire Hunger Games cast staying in the same dorm-style hotel during the significant Berlin shoot.

“We were all on the same floor. All of our doors were always unlocked. You never knew who or when someone would come in,” says Lawrence, adding that she awoke one evening to find co-star Woody Harrelson barging in. “It was a blast.”

There were obvious challenges shooting the final installment which significantly raises the action onscreen against the oppressive Capitol — Part 2 puts Katniss Everdeen(Lawrence) reluctantly, but fully, into the role of revolution leader after her Hunger Games partner Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson) was tortured by evil President Snow. Meanwhile, Katniss’s childhood friend Gale Hawthorne (Hemsworth) turns hardcore military in his rebel role.

Shooting scenes centering on a Capitol secret mission required three weeks in a specially-built claustrophobic Atlanta set representing the sewers, complete with knee-deep water. The days were long, waterlogged and cramped.

“We love being on-set and working. So you always have to tint it with that. But that was horrible,” Hutcherson says. “You felt terrified and a sense of panic. But at the same time you had a sense of this confined space.”

Lawrence even nicknamed the 6-foot-3 Hemsworth “Tilikum” after the bull orca whale living in captivity in a SeaWorld tank. Hemsworth couldn’t stand properly in the tight quarters.

“Josh and I at least could stand. We were sopping wet and cold. But we could stand up,” says Lawrence, laughing. “This poor guy was hunched over for 12 hours a day.”

“How many times did you hit your head? You had a couple of good knocks,” adds Hutcherson, as Hemsworth can just nod in agreement.

Hemsworth recalls a sequence of sewer set shots required the group to sprint down a water-filled hallway with a massive, fast-moving camera rig moving at them on a track. He didn’t express it at the time, but Hemsworth obsessed about what would happen if somebody unexpectedly tripped.

“You’re dead. It’s like a train hitting you,” Hemsworth says sincerely. “I had nightmares about that. You’re running and you see someone else trip just as their hand gets cut off. Or their head.”

“Gosh, you never said any of that to me,” Lawrence says.

“It’s all fun until someone gets their hand cut off,” Hutcherson adds.

But the group stuck it out, with their film family even growing bigger. Lawrence incorporated two of her nephews into a key scene for Part 2. “As long as there were children needed, I have nephews to supply,” Lawrence says.

Even after they had completed their filming, Hemsworth and Hutcherson stayed on set to watch Lawrence shoot her final scenes and the concluding franchise moments. It was made all the more dramatic considering the last scene was meant to have featured Philip Seymour Hoffman (as rebel leader Plutarch Heavensbee) who died during filming in 2014.

“It was emotional for that reason, but it was also that the film was coming to an end as well,” Hemsworth says. “We were all parting ways.”

The threesome vow to stay fast friends now that the filming has stopped. Even if the group’s relationship is frayed onscreen as Peeta and Gale vie for Katniss’s affections, they all insist there are no hard feelings.

“Except, we don’t talk much anymore,” Hemsworth says.

Adds Hutcherson: “Yah, I can’t look him in the eyes for more than three seconds.”

The Story Behind Douglas Kirkland’s Iconic Photo

“Douglas spent a month travelling with Judy Garland in 1961, on the show JUDY directed by Norman Jewison and when she went to Berlin for the Premiere of Judgment At Nuremberg, he was with her on the plane. He saw her take an audience by storm in Toronto and then be taken onto the plane in a wheelchair, depleted, holding rosary beads at take off. When they were shooting for the cover at the LOOK Magazine studio, he shot a lot of different images and then they started talking about how Douglas had observed how she put on a great face but her life was not always easy and how hard she was pushing herself. The music was quiet and she started to cry. That is the true story.”

‘Hard’ is not the same as ‘sad’ or ‘tragic’, of course. But they’re closely linked. These were real tears that came out of a conversation about putting on a brave front in the face of adversity. These tears illustrate the complexities of Judy when it came to her recognition of her difficult life.

Places I should visit and things I should do. Along with where I should maybe look for flats :)

Places you have to visit in London, not all of them are that exciting to most people but I love weird things so yeah.

-Westminster (Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey). You do not fit in in Westminster if you don’t look like a tourist and take a million pictures so just so it. -London Eye Pier. Go during the day and see all the strange things going on, there’s usually people dancing or doing weird statue things; it’s very odd but cool. Go on the London eye at night as well, the queues are less and the view is breathtaking. - London Aquarium. It’s real expensive to get in and it doesn’t last that long but it’s a cool experience. It’s on London eye pier so you can do multiple places in one stop. -London dungeons. Never been in as  the queues always massive but it’s my mums favourite place so go there as she has good taste. -Hard Rock Cafe. Just THE coolest place in the world. I’ve been to the Berlin one and the London one is so small in comparison but it’s awesome! -Buckingham Palace. Makes you feel very British. Stand on the monument and laugh at all the tourists. -Leicester Square. Home to all the movie premieres and it has a Ben and Jerry’s shop which is particularly good. -Trafalgar square. Don’t bother getting off at Charing Cross on the tube, get off at Leicester square and walk around the corner. It has the national gallery there which is cool but go at night and the fountains all light up and you can climb on the lion statues. Nelson’s column is there too but it’s pretty tall and it freaks me out. -Oxford street shopping. If you dare brave the crowds. But it’s iconic I guess. -Alexandra Palace. It’s in North London and is a pain to get to but the view at the top of the hill is incredible. Wish I could have spent longer looking when I went. Go in the evening but be aware as its a not well lit area! -Camden. Just the coolest place ever. Camden Lock is awesome and you can get so much stuff there. It’s pretty hipster lol. -Baker Street. Has the oldest tube station so it’s pretty historic. The station is lined with mini outlines of Sherlock Holmes, which I adore. Get off here and you’ll be at Madame Tussaud’s + there is a nando’s just there as well. -Picadilly circus. Has the big screens and it’s pretty random. Last time I went there were people marching the streets protesting for saving badgers.  -Chinatown. It’s actually a really odd place and I left pretty quick but if you like paper lanterns then this is a must. -Wembley. Go to wembley park rather than wembley central. Go visit the stadium and the iconic arena is next door. The X Factor studios are a quick walk away as well, and they have a McDonalds which is always useful. -Kingston. Right down South London but it has THE best shopping and it’s so beautiful.  -Rainforest cafe. It’s a rainforest. In a cafe. Underground. I nearly died of excitement whilst eating. -02 Arena. It’s a really cool building and it has over priced food but its just buzzing. You can do the walk over the top of it too if you’re crazy. -Green Park. It’s literally just some grass and trees but I love it. -Globe theatre. The heart of theatre basically. Lovely place, so much history. Makes you love Shakespeare. -Go see a show in the west. I’ve seen a few and it’s incredible.  -climb primrose hill. An awesome view!  -Kew Gardens. Best day out. Used to go when I was little and take a picnic as picnics are good. And it depends what your budget is depends on a flat location! Central is very expensive and so is down south. North London is probably your best bet, try harrow area :)
