Taraji P. Henson talks diversity in Hollywood and feeling “like a boss”

Taraji P. Henson in “What Men Want”; Jess Miglio/Paramount Pictures(NEW YORK) — In a new interview with InStyle magazine, Taraji P. Henson doesn’t hold back when talking about diversity and gender equality in Hollywood.

In fact, Henson opens her interview with the strong statement, “I feel like a boss b****,” citing her new role in the film What Men Want, which she also executive produces.

Inspired by the 2000 film, What Women Want, starring Mel Gibson, Henson now takes the lead role as a female sports agent who suddenly gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts.

“I just felt so honored and grateful to get a comedy where I could let it all hang out,” she told InStyle.

Henson also isn’t one to mince her words when speaking to executives, who in the past said her fan base didn’t reach overseas.

“I said, ‘You’re lying because they can reach me any time. I’m a finger tap away, and they let me know every day,'” Henson said. “Then we go to Paris, and it’s standing room only in a room with 1,500 seats. I cried. You can’t let people tell you s***”

Taraji also appreciates Hollywood’s move toward diversity but admits there’s still a long way to go.

“Here’s the deal: When you talk about money, don’t you want to make money?” she said. “I want every walk of life [in my films]. If I could put an alien in, I would… Come on, it’s what the world looks like. That’s what people want to see, representation.”

Henson is also is focused on love and health. She’s set to tie the knot in July with NFL star Kelvin Hayden and also revealed she’s now a vegan.

“I switched everything up out of necessity,” she said. “I want to live. Thank God, because I feel so much better.”

Quentin Tarantino marries Israeli singer Daniella Pick

Gilbert Carrasquillo/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) — Quentin Tarantino got hitched.

According to People, the Pulp Fiction director tied the knot with Israeli singer Daniella Pick Wednesday in Los Angeles.

The two met in 2009 when Tarantino was in Israel promoting his film Inglourious Basterds, but they later broke up. The couple reunited in 2015 and Tarantino proposed in the summer of 2017.

This is the first marriage for both the 55-year-old director and the 35-year-old singer.

In 2009, Tarantino explained to GQ why he had never married, saying, “When I’m doing a movie, I’m not doing anything else. It’s all about the movie. I don’t have a wife. I don’t have a kid. Nothing can get in my way.”

He proposed to Pick shortly after announcing that he’d be retiring after he directs two more films.

Hugh Jackman announces 2019 world tour: ‘The Man. The Music. The Show.’

SAEED KHAN/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — He’s played everything from the cigar-chomping, razor-clawed superhero Wolverine, to fallen presidential hopeful Gary Hart in his current movie, The Front Runner.  But Hugh Jackman’s clearly always been a song-and-dance man at heart, and he’s hitting the road next year to prove it once more.

Hugh Jackman: The Man. The Music. The Show. will be a one-man world tour kicking off May 13 in Hamburg, Germany, with 12 European shows before heading to North America June 12 in Houston, Texas.  There’ll be 22 North American shows, including two at Madison Square Garden and another pair at the Hollywood Bowl.  Tickets go on sale a week from tomorrow, including the usual VIP and other packages.  Check out HughJackmanTheShow.com for all the dates and more info.

No itinerary for the show has yet been revealed but Jackman’s Twitter declares, “With live orchestra, including hit songs from: The Greatest Showman, Les Miserables, & more from Broadway and film.”

This isn’t Jackman’s first one-man show.  Three years ago, he toured Australia with his show Broadway to Oz, during which he performed Broadway hits and other songs from musicals and more, backed by a full orchestra.  It seems likely his just-announced tour is an expansion of that outing.

Though he most recently demonstrated his musical chops playing P.T. Barnum in last year’s sleeper hit movie musical The Greatest Showman, Jackman’s musical cred runs deep.  In addition to his Oscar-nominated work as Jean Valjean in the 2012 film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Les Miserables, Jackman won the 2004 Tony award for Best Actor in a Musical for his one-man Broadway show The Boy from Oz, in which he portrayed the late Australian-born singer-songwriter Peter Allen.  In fact, it was playing the lead role of Curly in a 1998 London West End production of the musical Oklahoma! that first earned Jackman recognition outside of his native Australia.

Jordan Peele confirmed to produce a “spiritual sequel” to ‘Candyman’

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — Jordan Peele’s Candyman reboot is officially on its way. 

According Deadline, MGM Pictures has teamed up with Oscar-winning Get Out writer/director Peele’s Monkeypaw Production company to produce a reboot of the 1992 horror film.  The new film, set to hit theaters in 2020, is reported be a “spiritual sequel” to the original, but set in “the now-gentrified section of Chicago where the Cabrini-Green housing projects once stood.” 

The classic original film was based on a short story by Clive Barker and starred Tony Todd as the infamous Candyman — the son of a slave who became an artist and was later mutilated and killed by his lover’s father. The story’s urban legend states that if you say the Candyman’s name five times in a mirror, he’ll appear and kill the person with use of the hook he wears where his right arm used to be. 

Nia DaCosta, who made her feature debut this year in Little Woods, starring Tessa Thompson and Lily James, will direct the film from a screenplay from Peele and Win Rosenfeld.

“The original was a landmark film for black representation in the horror genre,” said Peele in statement. “Alongside Night of the Living DeadCandyman was a major inspiration for me as filmmaker — and to have a bold new talent like Nia at the helm of this project is truly exciting.”

He continued, “We are honored to bring the next chapter in the Candyman canon to life and eager to provide new audiences with an entry point to Clive Barker’s legend.”

Production on the Candyman reboot is expected to start in spring 2019, with a U.S. release June 12, 2020.

Lindsay Lohan “flattered” by pop star Ariana Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ video tease

Stephane Cardinale/Corbis via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Actress Lindsay Lohan has mixed feelings about pop star Ariana Grande’s upcoming “thank u, next” music video, which borrows from some of the singer’s favorite movies, including, Mean Girls.

A few days after Grande shared an Instagram snap of herself, with a group of girls dressed as the titular characters, including Dynasty star Elizabeth Gillies as Cady Heron — the character originated by Lohan in the movie — Lohan seemingly offered her thoughts on Gilles’ casting.

Next to a headshot of herself posted to her Instagram page, Lohan, 32, wrote, “Ain’t nobody Lindsay Lohan like the real Lindsay Lohan.”

“But so flattered by @arianagrande loving #MeanGirls so much! Also, I love #dynasty,” she added.

The “thank you, next” trailer features a takeoff of a scene from the movie in which Janis, played by Izzy Caplan, tells Cady, played by Lindsay Lohan, “How can I even begin to explain Regina George?” That’s followed by a montage of random students praising Regina, played by Rachel McAdams.

The “thank u, next” clip features a similar montage of students, only they’re all talking about Grande.

A premiere date for the video has yet to be announced.

‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’ reunites Tim Blake Nelson with the Coen Brothers

Netflix(NEW YORK) — Tim Blake Nelson plays a singing, murderous cowboy in his newest role in Netflix’s The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

“[Scruggs] lives by a certain code,” Nelson told ABC News’ Peter Travers. “He never kills unprovoked. And don’t call him a Tinhorn.”

The series again teams Nelson with filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen for the first time since 2000, when he co-starred in the Coen Brothers film O Brother, Where Art Thou?  Nelson said he was thrilled to work with the Coens again.

“Luckily Joel and Ethan, who are manifestly unconventional, cast unconventional roles that they write in their unconventional stories and somehow they get them made beautifully,” Nelson said.

Nelson added, “I was given this script in 2002, if you can believe it. They’d written mine. And they’d written this other one about a legless, armless thespian. So yeah, I waited 15 years and they said, ‘OK we have the other ones and we’re gonna make it.’”

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a compilation of six different stories all set in the Old West.

“It’s about mortality told in six different subgenres of the western genre,” Nelson said. “And then in the final episode, there’s this little speech that this character gives and he talks about stories as being around in life to distract us from our mortality. And suddenly you say wow, all of these vignettes about mortality are ultimately a distraction from our mortality.”

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is now playing on Netflix and in select theaters.
