Bright Star, director Jane Campion, actor Ben Whishaw (TIFF ’09)

The complete version of this interview got lost in the shuffle. Apologies. Never too late, I guess.

    I am just doing this to catch your attention DP because you need to address one thing:

    You need to either put up a link to an OSCAR STORY on the blog or you need to just have that story be here on the blog. Once you click on the Don Murphy jerk-a-thon, it takes you away from the Hot blog, and puts you into a completely different place that does not have a LINK TO THE HOT BLOG at the top of the page. That’s just goofy.

    Again, I get your reasoning behind having everything MCN related being tied into the Hot Blog and vice versa, but that’s hard to deal with when there’s no real easy way to access the place I want to go to in the first place… THE HOT BLOG!

    I know this is a new design, it’s being tweaked and what not, but there’s practical and impractical. What has happened to this blog is impractical by a country mile. Please, admin, work this out or I will continue to have to use back and forth to navigate between two articles that are on this blog but in actuality, one of them is not.

    Great, the edit button just stopped working. Fine, here’s a double-post. I now have found the HOT BLOG link in the 26 Weeks thread but why is it all the way at the end? Why do I get re-directed to another part of MCN? It’s just impractical. I get the reasoning still but that’s just… weird.

    I’ve been waiting a long time for the entire video. Thanks for posting!

    I’m heterosexual (well, mostly), but I do like older ladies — Ms Campion is hot!

  5. CampionFan says:

    Ha ha, well I’m not heterosexual and I also think she is hot…nice to know someone else feels the way I do about her! It’s nice to know others appreciate older women as well!

    When I try to watch this it says ‘video forbidden this video is private’. Is there something I need to do to watch it? Thank you :)

“Hollywood executives can rattle off the rules for getting a movie approved by Chinese censors: no sex (too unseemly); no ghosts (too spiritual). Among 10 prohibited plot elements are “disrupts the social order” and “jeopardizes social morality.” Time travel is frowned upon because of its premise that individuals can change history. U.S. filmmakers sometimes anticipate Chinese censors and alter movies before their release. The Oscar-winning alien-invasion drama “Arrival” was edited to make a Chinese general appear less antagonistic before the film’s debut in China this year. For “Passengers,” the space adventure starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, a scene showing Mr. Pratt’s bare backside was removed, and a scene of Mr. Pratt chatting in Mandarin with a robot bartender was added.”

The race stuff blew up first. The second night we aired was the first time I met my boyfriend; we were on a blind date. I had been metabolizing the criticism all week, and I made a really, really dumb joke that I’m perfectly fine to repeat now ’cause I was fuckin’ 25. I said, ‘No one would be calling me a racist if they knew how badly I wanted to fuck Drake.’ He said, ‘Don’t say that in public; that’s not going to help you.’ I just didn’t get it. I was like, ‘I have the three most annoying white friends, and I’m making a TV show about it.'”
