Tobey rose to international fame after starring as Peter Parker in Spider-Man. Since then, we haven’t seen much of him lately. From personal decisions to negative press, we reveal why the famous actor suddenly disappeared from the screens.
Almost 30 years ago Kirsten Dunst starred as Claudia in Interview with the Vampire. The actress still vividly remembers one of the most disturbing and controversial scenes she’s ever had. When she was only 11, she had to kiss Brad Pitt who was 31 at the time. The star described her experience in detail and opened up about her feelings at the time.
“Wow, that was an incredible scene,” we’ve said at least once while enjoying a movie. But sometimes, the credit doesn’t solely go to the screenwriter or director. In fact, some of the best moments on screen resulted from the actors improvising or changing the script altogether. From iconic movie lines to unforgettable character moments, here are 7 times when actors went off-script and made the final result even better.
Movie costumes are not always created from scratch. Sometimes costume designers borrow props from other movie sets and change them slightly, and we believe there’s nothing wrong with this. After all, it’s nice to see a beautiful costume twice or even 3 times.
Movie posters often feature characters with exaggerated physical attributes, like people with abnormally long arms and fingers, women with impossibly thin waists, and superheroes defying the laws of physics. These elements can create humorous or uncanny visual effects and can be entertaining for audiences to spot and point out even before movies themselves are released.
2022 was a year full of highlights in the world of entertainment. We saw Beyoncé surprising everyone by releasing a new album and the second installment in the Avatar saga finally premiering 13 years after the first one. But for a few celebrities, the year also gave them something to celebrate in their personal life: getting married! We now look back at some of the famous couples who got their happily ever after in 2022.
Many people can only dream about kissing super attractive and charming stars, but it’s not always rainbows and butterflies to those who actually get to. Some actors have faced tense situations with their co-stars, such as filming romantic kissing scenes or experiencing embarrassing moments like falling, and it’s only normal. Kissing is intimate and sometimes even awkward, especially since so many people are watching you do it. And if you happened to eat garlic before a big on-screen smooch, it can be incredibly embarrassing.
Many Hollywood stars started their careers in childhood. For example, the movie Léon paved the way for Natalie Portman to the world of big cinema, and Interview with the Vampire made 12-year-old Kirsten Dunst a big star. We wanted to discover how the actresses we remember as little girls have changed over the years. And it’s easy to track because they’ve left a trail of many movies in their wake.
While admiring the stunning outfits that celebrities flaunt on the red carpet, we don’t really think about what happens to them afterward. It’s hard to imagine that these gorgeous dresses collect dust in the far corner of a celebrity’s closet. But, as it turns out, this is not always the case.
Although many paparazzi and some die-hard fans may think differently, celebrities also have a right to privacy. Sometimes they want to keep certain parts of their lives away from public scrutiny and so they celebrate certain events in their lives away from the camera flashes.
As a rule, celebrities have to live under the watchful eye of the paparazzi. But still, they somehow manage to hide details about their personal lives, leaving us guessing to whom their hearts belong. And when we finally find out the truth, our surprise may know no bounds.
Age is really just a number whenever our favorite actors are magically turned into their characters on the big screen. With the help of makeup, CGI, and the trending “de-aging” process they use in Hollywood, it’s no wonder we can’t tell them apart from their acting roles and real life.
High paychecks and the sought-after Oscar are not the only things that movie stars strive for. For many of them, conveying the depth of the characters they play to the audience is much more important. That’s why some actors and actresses go through serious preparation before filming.
The assumption that a woman should give birth to a child as early as possible belongs in the past. These days, becoming a mother at 30 is no longer something special. This is all because modern women have kids (their first, second, etc.) at even later ages.
Big salaries and Oscars are not the only things that movie stars aspire to. For many of them, it is much more important to convey the depth of their characters to the audience. That is why some actors and actresses spend a lot of time preparing for their roles. We support this serious approach to the craft and confirm that thanks to the perseverance of some actors, they literally assumed the persona of their characters.
When creating movies, people draw inspiration from the real world. But sometimes, the things that appear on screens influence viewers and make them change their tastes and habits. Sometimes, such an effect is a good marketing move that helps push a certain product. But often, movie creators get really surprised by the behavior of the public.
Some stories, no matter if they’re fictional or real, garner so many fans that directors want to make movies about them again and again. Sometimes, they manage to make a great film that’s just as good as the one before. But they also run the risk of making mistakes by adding some inappropriate plot twists or hiring an actor that’s wrong for the role. And all their efforts vanish amid a sea of critique and negativity.
Hollywood has presented us with many legendary onscreen romances like the ones between Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind, Jack and Rose from Titanic, Joel Barish and Clementine Kruczynski from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and many more. But not all actors are capable of emoting truly strong feelings and making us believe that they love their on-screen partner with all their heart. And there are several reasons for this: actors could hate each other in real life, they might not consider their partners attractive enough, or they might simply be bad at acting.
Nowadays, when creating a modern wardrobe, we usually look at popular bloggers who gather millions of “likes” on Instagram. But before the development of the Internet, women who wanted to look trendy and stylish had other references, such as various looks from movies and TV shows. But even today, there are films that give us style inspiration through their characters.
Even the most in-demand and highly-paid stars of the cinema world were once at the stage of taking their first timid steps on the big screen. Some started their career by appearing on soap operas while others tried themselves at movies for kids — and some even dabbled in sketch comedy. Believe it or not, some famous actors and actresses’ biggest fans might not know what their lives looked like when they were only starting off in their fight for a spot under Hollywood’s bright lights.
The 2000s was a time of mini-skirts, pink lip gloss, and flip phones. It’s quite easy to experience the history of those over-the-top years by getting lost in some of our favorite movies. And this is because movies that we avidly watched at the dawn of the twenty-first century have already become classic and now evoke nostalgia about those golden years that left a deep mark on our hearts.
In the 2000s, we went crazy for famous actors and singers like Britney Spears, Shakira, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, and many others. We rushed to watch their shows, played their songs on repeat, and bought magazines with them on the cover. Some of our idols were teens themselves back in those days, but now, they’re proud parents of their own children.
Just like history, Hollywood doesn’t like hypothetical situations. However, after learning certain facts, it can be difficult to stop yourself from that “what-if” kind of thinking. For instance, how would The Matrix look if Neo’s role was written for Sandra Bullock? Or what would Dumbledore be like if he was played by Ian McKellen? Believe it or not, these things had a pretty high chance of becoming a reality.
Some celebrities knew each other long before becoming famous, and there’s a simple reason for that: they went to the same school together. These musicians, actors, and politicians shared their classrooms, had the same teachers, and took their exams next to each other when their names were still not known by everyone. There are some of them who remain good friends to this day. As for the others... Well, we have a hard time picturing them together.
Celebrities often start getting ready for award ceremonies and important social gatherings several months prior to these events. They choose a fashion house, fabrics for their dresses, and a tailor, and they pick out accessories and makeup to look gorgeous on the red carpet. But sometimes, it’s enough to look back in the past and pick out the perfect outfit from old designer collections, so they can shine brighter than everybody else.
There’s an invisible guideline in the celebrity’s world pressuring them always to look a certain way. This unspoken rule outlines that “public people shouldn’t wear the same clothes twice” — it’s considered “inconvenient”. However, there are a number of public figures confident enough to solemnly ignore this “rule” and not fret about appearing in the same look on different occasions. So, if you like a certain dress and feel comfortable wearing it, why not put it on again (and again, and again)?
Sunglasses are more than a major summer accessory — they can be the best protection for our eyes from harmful radiation, reduce fatigue, and add harmony to our overall look. That is, of course, if we choose the right type that suits our faces. Sunglasses can also help disguise your face so no one can recognize you, just like they do for Superman.We obviously can buy any sunglasses we want, even if they don’t “fit” our face shape. This article will serve as a guide if you are looking to buy your first pair and don’t know where to start. The most important thing is that you feel cute and confident while wearing them.
