The first time I ever wrote about “The Girlfriend Experience” was back in 2009. Back then porn star, Sasha Grey, was the lead actress in a film with this title. She played a call girl who was living a double life. I actually found this film to be pretty fascinating and no – it wasn’t at all a porno like people may be quick to think. It was done really well which is probably why Starz is now turning it into a television series. Above is the trailer and it’s very similar to the movie, but it will be interesting to see how each episode is played out. Both the tv show and movie are tied to Stephen Soderbergh who is the producer for the new tv series out next year: For comparison, the movie trailer featuring Sasha Grey is below:
I actually heard about this film a few months back, but this was the first time I’m ever seeing the trailer. When I was growing up Jamie Chung was the Real Worlder I aspired to me – mainly because she was Asian American and pretty tasteful when she appeared on the show in the San Diego season. I also have always loved Bryan Greenberg since his days on One Tree Hill. Who didn’t love Jake AMIRITE?! The two are actually engaged to be married in real life and while I’ve seen them in photos and stuff, I’ve never seen them working together so it will be kind of cool to see how their chemistry translates onscreen.
Based on the best-selling novel by Emma Donoghue. A woman is being held captive with her five-year-old son in a single small room for years.
Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, and starring Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Joan Allen, William H. Macy
Just enough of the trailer to get you interested. I love Brie Larson though so I have no doubts that she won’t do a fantastic job in this.
I’ve been hearing about this film for quite awhile now so it’s great to finally see the official trailer. I think this is going to do quite well actually and I’m looking forward to seeing it in theaters.
So remember how two days ago I said that I would just do a montly roundup of photos? Well, I’ve got this thing about inconsistency… Actually, I found some extra time to do one of these posts this weekend so I thought I’d just do while it was still relevant and fresh as opposed to waiting till the end of the month. Let’s just say this will vary on a case-by-case basis and call it good.
This past weekend was Caturday at Dolores Park and a few of my co-workers were going so I thought I would just tag along! I wish I loved cats…but let’s just be real here – I’m much more partial to babies and kids than household pets. I figured that if I was going to attend this thing though, I was going to get really into it and the only way to do that was to have someone let me “Simba” their cat. Mission accomplished. Have you ever seen me look this happy?!
Hands down – this had to be one of the sweetest things I’ve read all week. Growing up, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was one of my favorite series. I couldn’t always exactly relate to all of the situations that happened in the books or even felt like I resonated with one character, but there were a series of moments that I maybe identified with spread out between the four characters. After the series was turned into a movie and then a sequel, I was ecstatic. The actresses selected were such a good fit, but sometimes that’s all it is – just acting, right? It’s sometimes rare for people that are cast in a movie to stay friends afterwards, but not these 4.
It was revealed this week that Blake Lively made Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, and America Ferrera the godmothers of her newborn baby. Awwww!
Edit: 4/12 oh this is disappointing that it isn’t true after all… [E!]
It’s the eve of the season premiere of Mad Men’s last season so it only seemed fitting for us to feature the actress on the show who we find to be a style icon. That is none other than Kiernan Shipka. Full disclosure: I’m not a fan of the show. I’ve watched a few episodes with Kevin and friends always ask me if I want to watch an episode with them, but to be honest I’ve never really gotten into it. I can’t believe how long this television series has been airing though. Fans of the show have really watched Kiernan grow up into the lovely teenager she is today and her style has blossomed so we’re very excited to be showcasing it in this post. Just to throw it back we thought we’d intro this post with a photo of a young Kiernan. She’s only 15, but she’s got so much ahead of her!
Who: Suki Waterhouse
Wearing: Reem Acra
Where: Insurgent Premiere
I actually didn’t think that I would love this, but somehow when I was looking at all the other looks from the premiere, I kept coming back to this one. Completely fixated on how pretty it was, but also how imperfect and edgy it is at the same time.
It’s pretty crazy how often I find myself using Yelp. If I’ve never been to a restaurant before, I completely rely on them to give me honest reviews. Since I’ve used it so much, I guess I never realized the backlash that the company has received from other business owners, but it makes sense. In this new documentary, local filmmaker Kaylie Milliken questions Yelp’s business practices and conducts interviews with business owners who feel their businesses have been vastly impacted by the types of reviews that are found on Yelp about them.
I’m actually really interested in watching this. The film is halfway done already.
