Because I’m smooth like cracker jacks, this was my crap attempt to quickly get to the other side of @lydiahearst on the red carpet last night without disrupting her photos to say hi to Aaron Paul at the Elton John Oscar thingie. #NameHopping [Regram from @patrickmcmullan]

I like walking walking around, meeting people, and I may not always do photos. The trouble with photos is [then] I’m not me anymore. As long as I’m me, [for example] in the room with you guys, then that’s fine. But when you’re posing on the street, you’re That Famous Guy, and I may not want to be him at that moment. I may just want to go into Starbucks or do a bit of Christmas shopping or something. I say to people, ‘Look, I’m happy to have a chat with you,’ shake hands, 'Let’s just talk.’ Somebody said, 'You spend more time with them than you would for a photo. Why don’t you just do a photo and get it over with?’ I said, 'Because it robs me of me.’ It changes - I’m not that guy I think I am inside, suddenly I’m that guy on the poster. So I hold to that more than a lot of people.”
Q: What’s the disparity between the guy on the poster and the guy that you think is inside?
A: “He’s very famous, and I’m not. I’m just a dad, and a granddad. That’s me. I’m the guy who drops my youngest daughter off at school, talks to the school mums. That’s me. But then the next week I’ll be in Rio in front of 45,000 people. That’s him. And I like him, but I prefer me.

…A miserable toilet-scrubber named Jupiter (Mila Kunis) is rescued from a team of alien gynecologists by a half-man/half-wolf in flying boots (Channing Tatum) who informs her that the Earth is owned by a sniveling bastard named Balem Abrasax (Eddie Redmayne) and also that she is the reincarnation of the Queen of the Universe. And that’s just the first half-hour.

Just this year alone, we’re getting rebooted versions of Cinderella, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Point Break, The Crow, Poltergeist, Fantastic Four, and Mad Max, just to name a few. And this is to say nothing of the countless sequels to existing franchise that are also coming our way this year. I mean, what the hell, guys! Can’t we come up with anything new? […] The weird, original, wide-eyed films of the world can coexist with the big budget world of superhero sequels, sci-fi reboots and reimagined classics. The filmmakers and the studios need to step up to the plate, and then we too need to put our money where our mouths are. Otherwise, we’re just doomed to repeat the cycle. –Jupiter Ascending HOT MESS or High Art? The Dan Cave w/ Dan Casey (x)
