Is 40 Box Office Poison for Women in Hollywood?

Meg Ryan in The Women
Early last month Sony received word that Tom Cruise was dropping out of "Edwin A. Salt" due to similarities to Cruise's "Mission Impossible" franchise. Less than a week later, "Salt" had a new star, Angelina Jolie, and a greenlight. The script re-write began immediately in order to change the lead role to suit a female. The fastest turn around in Hollywood history had been pulled off thanks to a woman.

Power in Hollywood is defined by the ability to get a green light and bring in big bucks. And at the moment Angelina Jolie is powerful. She's also 33. Would things have been different i...

Marion Cotillard Impressed By Russell Crowe

Marion Cotillard
French actress Marion Cotillard was surprised by how well-behaved Russell Crowe was on the set of their 2006 movie A Good Year - because she'd been warned of his volatile reputation.

Cotillard found the Australian superstar, who was infamously placed on probation after throwing a telephone at a hotel employee in 2005, to be extremely easy-going.

She says, "I'd been told of Russell Crowe's reputation, but he's really the nicest guy. And I'm not doing an American-type promotion. He really wanted people to be happy on the set, and he would do anything to make you at ease."

Actress Marion Cotillard had a little help in conjuring up French singer Edith Piaf for stunning new biopic La Vie En Rose - from the dead diva herself. The A Good Year star insists the spirit of the tortured singer, who died in 1963, helped her perfect the role - but she's relieved Piaf's gosh didn't show itself.

Cotillard admits she had long dreamed of playing one of her heroines and poured over books, records and films in an effort to perfect the singer's voice and mannerisms. And, just when she feared her portrayal of Piaf would be little more than a bad impression, the diva turn...

French Critics Slam Russell Crowe Film

January 4th, 2007 9:51am EST
A Good Year
Russell Crowe has been admonished by French critics for refusing to destroy global stereotypes of France in his new movie A Good Year. The actor, alongside his British director Ridley Scott, has been mauled in the country's national press for playing up to the clichéd image of rural France.

Crowe plays a London banker who retires to a chateau in the southern region of Luberon in the movie, loosely based on British author Peter Mayle's best-seller "A Year In Provence."

Daily newspaper Liberation's film critic fumed yesterday, "Appalling from start to finish, 'A Good Year' collaps...

November 20th, 2006 8:34am EST
A Good Year
New movie A Good Year has been branded a flop by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, the man behind the studio which backed it. Fox 2000 chief Murdoch has washed his hands of the romantic comedy, and prefers to focus on the studio's other picture The Devil Wears Prada, which cost $17 million to make and has already made a $100 million profit.

"A Good Year," which sees Russell Crowe as an Englishman who inherits a rundown house in France, cost $35 million but only made $3.7 million on its opening weekend.

Speaking at a shareholders meeting in Adelaide, Australia Murdoch said, "You've got...

Director Dismisses Russell Crowe's Reputation

November 6th, 2006 9:46am EST
Russell Crowe
Oscar-winning director Ridley Scott has attacked Russell Crowe's Hollywood hardman image, insisting he is a "puppy dog." Scott, who has worked with Crowe on Gladiator, A Good Year and the forthcoming American Gangster, isn't fazed by the star, famous for his off-screen temper tantrums.

The British filmmaker says, "Really, what it is is Russell is very smart and therefore asks all sorts of intelligent questions, so if you're not ready you're going to get caught in the crossfire. So you'd better be ready. I'm used to him now. He's fundamentally a bit of a puppy dog."

Director's Abusive Attitude Inspired Russell Crowe

October 3rd, 2006 8:20am EDT
A Good Year
Russell Crowe decided how to portray an Englishman living in rural France in new movie A Good Year when he saw British director Ridley Scott's casually abusive manner towards the French. Crowe found Scott's unintentional nationalism fascinating - and it's something he can relate to, being born a New Zealander in neighboring Australia.

He says, "Ridley has had a house in Provence (France) for the last 15 years therefore the story of the Anglo-Franco dynamic is something that he knows absolutely. In talking to Ridley he will casually abuse French people without even be consciously aware...

Irwin died on September 4, when he was struck in the heart by a stingray barb while filming on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Crowe explains, "It's something that was not on my list of expectations in life - that I'd be saying goodbye to somebody who was pretty much my same age. Somebody I had so many plans with for things that we would do in the future, in particular with our kids. Ours sons are only a month apa...
