Django Unchained Review: The First Hour Is Brilliant. What About the Rest?

Django Unchained Review: The First Hour Is Brilliant

I'll be honest, I've been nervous about Django Unchained for months. On the one hand, I feared that Quentin Tarantino's foray in the antebellum south would give him license to indulge his n-word fetish. (The man thinks he has a ghetto pass, and is clearly unwilling to accept that they don't exist.)

Or, I thought, Django could be an Inglourious Basterds for black people, the feel-good slave-revenge movie of the year. It turns out I was right on both counts – except maybe that "feel good" business.

Harley Pasternak Blogs: How Leading Actors Get Fit for Roles

Originally posted 10/17/2012 10:00AM

A few weeks ago, my wife and I watched Crazy Stupid Love (I know, I know, we're a little late to the party). In one scene, Ryan Gosling seduces Emma Stone by taking his shirt off.

I turned to my wife to see her reaction. She was beet red and had her jaw wide open. When I asked if she enjoyed the movie, she uttered, "Ryan Gosling really was … fit looking."

(I worked out twice as hard the subsequent day, by the way.)

The fact is, Ryan got in amazing shape for the film. He has become part of a long list of leading men who have exercised and dieted to make their on-screen performance more impactful.

Rihanna Takes Over Kobe Bryant's Table at Basketball Bash

Rihanna had a prime seat after making a late arrival at a party for L.A. Clippers star Chris Paul and his new shoe line: She grabbed Kobe Bryant's table!

The R&B star, who was recently spotted at a Clippers game, arrived just as Bryant was leaving the bash, which was held at Greystone Manor in Los Angeles. But she and her girlfriends were there in time to enjoy several tunes before the club closed.

As for the newly-single Bryant, he headed to the party after flying back to town from Salt Lake City, where his team, the Lakers, played the Utah Jazz. And once inside, he stuck to his table – secluded behind the deejay booth and across the room from Paul.

But he didn't go unnoticed: At one point, Jamie Foxx jumped in the deejay booth, grabbed the mic and teased Bryant, saying, "Isn't this a Clipper party?"

Leave it to Oprah Winfrey to make yet another dream come true.

During an interview with Kirstie Alley, set to air Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the host brought up a May 2009 PEOPLE interview in which Alley revealed her affinity for actor Jamie Foxx.

"I haven't been having sex," Alley, 59, said at the time – as she also opened up about falling off the weight-loss wagon and ballooning to 228 lbs. "I want a booty call with Jamie Foxx. For real," she said. "I've always had a bit of a thing for him."

Winfrey reminded the Fat Actress star of the quotes and inquired if she really would love "a booty call from Jamie." Replies Alley: "You know, me and about 3 million other women in the United States."

Taylor Lautner Gets Mobbed ... by Jamie Foxx

Originally posted 11/28/2009 01:30PM

It isn't just screaming tween girls who are going gaga over New Moon star Taylor Lautner – one of the onscreen werewolf's biggest fans is Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx.

That's what Lautner found out to his great surprise at the Twilight premiere a year ago.


"There's tons of fans and we hear all of these high pitch voices and we hear 'Rah, rah, Taylor, Taylor!'" Lautner, 17, tells George Lopez on the Thursday airing of Lopez Tonight. "All of a sudden I hear this deep voice behind me: 'Taylor, Taylor!' .... And this guy walks up to me and he goes 'Hey ... my daughter is a huge fan, and I'm a huge fan is there any way I can get a picture with you. I'm Jamie Foxx.' I was like, 'Are you kidding me? Can I get a picture with you?'"

'Comedian' Jamie Foxx Apologizes to Miley Cyrus

'Comedian' Jamie Foxx Apologizes to Miley Cyrus

Originally posted 04/15/2009 10:40AM

And to think, it was just a joke.

After dissing Miley Cyrus on his Foxxhole Sirius radio show last weekend, a contrite Jamie Foxx appeared on Tuesday's Tonight Show and told Jay Leno – and Miley and the millions of those watching – "I so apologize … and this is sincere. I am a comedian, and you guys know that whatever I say, I don't mean any of it. And sometimes, as comedians, as we do, we go a little bit too far."

The Ray Best Actor Oscar winner, 41, had previously advised the Hannah Montana star, 16, to "get like Britney Spears and do some heroin. Do like Lindsay Lohan and start seeing a lesbian and get some crack in your pipe. Catch chlamydia on a bicycle seat."
