Sure, Winona Ryder has a movie to promote — “Homefront,” starring Jason Statham — but she’d much rather talk about Lou Reed, if that’s OK. “I was supposed to see [the movie], but then Lou Reed died and I had to go to his memorial. And you know, I just haven’t been able to. But I usually see something before talking about it,” Ryder says with a laugh. ”And it’s also my first, like, this kind of movie.”
I’m still a bit broken up about Lou Reed, actually.
Yeah, I know. I am, too. It’s weird, isn’t it? I know he was 71, but I just didn’t expect it. I did not know him well. I had to follow him at Allen Ginsberg’s [memorial], giving eulogies. It’s like the scariest thing, following Lou Reed. But he was Lou Reed, you know?
Well, he was such a huge presence.
Last night, I was at a party for a movie that a friend of mine did, and there were these… “younger people.” (laughs) They’re talking about music, and it was like they didn’t know that he was in the Velvet Underground, they didn’t know anything about him. And they play music. I was like, “Walk on the Wild Side?” “Sweet Jane?” Like, the big ones, and they didn’t know them. It’s just crushing, you know? I actually played it on my phone for them.
I was surprised today with this link to a japanese TV advertising which seems to be a documentary to be aired next November 26th at 9am (local time).
In a very bad translation from me, the program called “The Future of Spaceship Earth” will talk about the nuclear accident caused by the great East Japan Earthquake last year, and how people can environment the energy to take a better care of the planet.
On the page you can watch a 2 min video with an interview, and also an introduction to the program. Unfortunately it can’t be embed or downloaded (with sound), but I did a few screen captures. Check in our gallery, and go to www.nhk.or.jp/spaceshipearth in order to see the video.
So, finally, some video from Homefront premiere in Las Vegas. Entertainment Tonight interviewed the stars at the red carpet. Winona appears on 1:40 mark.
A new batch, HQ sized this time, of Homefront press conference pictures has been added in our gallery. A HUGE thanks to Marica, who kindly donated it to us.
Please remember to give us a link back when reposting, since the pictures was donated to our site. Thanks!
The ‘Homefront’ World Premiere took place last night on Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, and Winona attended it with the whole cast. Check pictures:
I have added additional 5 MQ but absolutely gorgeous new pictures of Winona during the Homefront press conference. I hope more like that surfaces soon!
