Natasha Lyonne will be on your box (no cheerleader) Some husky-voiced actresses get a DUI and make critically-panned biopics, others turn liquor into liquorice and develop a network TV show. Natasha Lyonne should give Lindsay a few tips because she's set to star and produce a new sitcom for Fox. The currently untitled project will be a single-camera comedy about Stella (Lyonne) living with her conservative brother after she leaves rehab. It's semi-autobiographical because Lyonne was arrested for driving drunk in 2001 and went through a court-ordered drug problem. Before the sitcom airs on Fox, you can see Lyonne in a Netflix original series called Orange is the New Black, from the creator of Weeds. It's about a women's prison. Seems like Natasha Lyonne is really cornering the "bad bitch" TV market. We're not complaining. She can be our anti-New Girl any day.
A letter to Amy Winehouse Dear Amy, This is a letter to you in your absence. We will miss your soulful crooning and are left in a state of confusion about our emotions after your death. For a woman in the spotlight you never conformed to the normalcies of our generation. They tried to make you go to rehab, but you said no. You challenged what a 5-time grammy winner's image could look like. You were a mess, and you were insane, but your stripped-bare, can't get-it-together gig was endearing. You combined having zero inhibitions with being pin-up sexy and had a massive reserve of talent to back it up. Your tattoos and emaciated body have been the subject of so much tabloid scrutiny, and we feel for you as a result. All in all, we want to salute you, Amy. You deserve to be remembered with both love and humour. xx the hearty girls
For those of us who follow Hollywood, it seemed Kirsten Dunst had fallen off the map. Rumors swirled (then were confirmed) she was in rehab, but for what remained a bit of a mystery. It turns out it was depression--something she feels most people in their twenties will go through. Fresh from treatment, Dunst has completed her first major movie since 2008, All Good Things, opposite Ryan Gosling. In a recent profile in New York Magazine, Dunst spoke about her depression and absence from the movie world. "You grow up in a business where there’s a lot of people-pleasing," she said. "It’s hard to be firm in your own ground and not be afraid to rock the boat. I was swallowing a lot of stuff … In my relationships and personal life I absorbed things from other people, and then because of what I do for a living, I had to keep giving. It can dissolve you.” Dunst's new movie, All Good Things, opens December 3rd. Watch the trailer below. Via: New York Magazine
