So I got a nice surprise today, my friend Jennifer (which runs leslie-bibb.net) got Sex & Death 101 in Blu-Ray and sent me screen captures of Winona’s scenes, plus menus and trailers. You can find now screen captures up in our gallery:
Bloody-Disgusting caught up with writer Seth Grahame-Smith during the “Dark Shadows” press conference and asked him for an update on “Beetlejuice 2″ and whether Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis or Winona Ryder’s characters will return.
It’s all possible. In terms of the story, however, many years that are between the two films will be the amount of years that are between the two story lines. It’s not a reboot or a remake, it’s a straight sequel with Michael Keaton returning as Beetlejuice.
Having in mind that it’s a big “IF”, would you like to see Winona back as an adult Lydia?
Just in time for Earth Day on Sunday, the fashion crowd went crunchy two nights ago at the charity concept store Treasure & Bond in Soho when Rogan Gregory and Scott MacKinlay Hahn of eco-fashion line Loomstate took over to debut their Loomstate 321 line.
Winona was there, and I’ve added a few pictures of the event. Sadly, mostly pictures are still tagged, and I’m working to get it in better quality for you.
She also gave a quick interview to site Fashionista, which you can read below:
The stunning actress seriously hasn’t aged a day since Heathers (she recently modeled some H&M x Marni out in L.A.) and looked amazing in a Loomstate 321 tee under a fitted leather moto jacket. She seemed a bit discombobulated–first warmly greeting us, then asking for a moment (“I just need to fix my lipstick”) and later apologizing for being out of it because she “took the redeye in.” We asked her to share the most earth friendly thing that she does and we think we kind of confused her.
“Let me think,” Ryder giggled. “Maybe you should pause it [gesturing to our recorder]. I’m trying to think of the greenest things that I do. I don’t under….You mean like in my own personal? So boring. For the line? What? I’m sorry…”
We felt bad for flustering the jet-legged actress and backtracked to an easier question: How does she know Gregory and MacKinlay Hahn?
“I’ve known them for a few years and I’m a huge fan of their designs, but also their deep commitment to the environment,” she slowly articulated. “And you know they’re doing what everybody should be doing and with sustainability and with keeping it organic and I’m just excited for them. They’re great guys and the thing is so awesome. Such a great example and it’s something that you can wear eight million ways and believe me I tried them all tonight. I speak from experience.”
So taking the eight-dresses-in-one in mind, how many times would Ryder wear the design before she threw it in the wash, we asked?
“Well, I would have to double check with Scott because I’ve been schooled about laundry by them,” Ryder said. “I just used to do my laundry and I never thought about it. Then through them I really learned that you don’t have to wash your jeans every [day]…and it’s actually better.”
So there you have it: Stars, lazy with laundry–just like us.
Everything is quiet so I went ahead and added a few more HQ pictures in our ever growing picture collection. The pictures are 2010/2012 events only, but so pretty… You can see the previews below or follow the links for the albums:
The following article, originally published in the Winona Fanzine UK, was written by a fan who describes how he landed a part as a crowd extra in the opera scene for The Age of Innocence.
In early 1992, I heard that The Age of Innocence, then entering production, would be filming on location in New York and Philadelphia (my home). I was alert to the possibility of trying out as an extra, and the local newspaper entertainment section finally mentioned that there would be an open casting call at a downtown hotel. As I was “between jobs” at the time, I was available to give it a shot.
Extra casting doesn’t really involve an audition. They’re really just seeking people with the appropriate look. In this case, they were somewhat frustrated, in that the 1870s opera audience they sought to fill would ideally be made up of middle-aged to older people…i.e, the sort least likely to take two or three working days off to “go be in a show”. I think I owe my good fortune at being selected to the fact that I was more “conventional” looking than many of the hip young “actor” types who showed up. I was one of about 100 people who were lined up as extras in advance and fitted for costumes. Ultimately they “shanghaied” about 200-300 more people during the two days of shooting and dressed them in rented tuxes or plain dresses to fill out the background. Even then, they resorted to cardboard cut-outs placed in the Academy of Music seats to make the place look full.
