In Curtis Mekemson’s new book “Hollywood Speaks Out on Tobacco,” Winona Ryder is quoted as saying that she doesn’t believe young people start smoking just because they see their favorite actors light up in films. “I don’t apologize for smoking onscreen,” she said. “It should be our choice, and I don’t think we influence people to smoke.”
Winona Ryder and Sa?d Taghmaoui (“Three Kings”) will star in “O Jersualem” for director Elie Chouraqui (“Harrison’s Flowers”).
The film, based on the book by Domenica Lapierre and Larry Collins about the creationof the state of Israel, tells the story of a young Palestinian and his Jewish friend and the tragic events that separate them. Filming is scheduled to begin April 10 in Greece.
They might have a huge age gap, but that is no reason for Sir Ben Kingsley and Winona Ryder to get talking.
According to Femalefirst, Kingsley who is divorcing his wife, Alexandra Christmann drowned his sorrows by chatting up Winona Ryder at an after-show party for Academy Awards ceremony. “Now you really must be afraid of me. I’m totally available,” he was quoted as saying to Ryder.
Sir Ben Kingsley saw a photo of his wife passionately locking lips with Sammy Brauner while scanning the society pages of an online German newspaper on the internet.[source]

What can you say about a 12-year-old girl whose god has died? Each year, thousands of Nepalese children are sold into sexual slavery in India. Often kidnapped or duped, these girls are raped and beaten until they submit to lives of prostitution. Many call the day they were sold ”the day my god died.”
Boston native Andrew Levine’s first feature documentary has a lot to say about them, and it’s heartbreaking. Filmed in India and Nepal, ”The Day My God Died” uses spy-camera footage to take us into Bombay’s grim Kamathipura neighborhood, the largest concentrated red-light district in the world, known as ”The Cages.” According to the film, some 200,000 prostitutes work here. The average age is just 14, but most will not live long; 80 percent of them have HIV.
Narrated by Tim Robbins and Winona Ryder, ”The Day My God Died” will be broadcast Dec. 19 on WGBH (Channel 44) at 9 p.m., with Susan Sarandon as host. But local audiences have a chance to see it first: A free advance screening takes place in the Boston Public Library’s Rabb Lecture Hall Thursday at 6:30 p.m., followed by a panel discussion including Laura Lederer, senior adviser on trafficking at the US State Department, and Brigitte Cazalis Collins, executive director of Friends of Maiti Nepal.
