This week The Rum Diary is FTRC Film Club’s Pick of the Week. Leading man Johnny Depp has hit a few headlines for running his mouth off recently, and he’s not the only one. Seems not knowing when to shut up is a habit quite a few Hollywood types share…
But going over all the not-nice stuff people say is, well, not very nice. The downright dopey stuff, however, is a different story. We’ve been reading controversial quotes all week. Time for some good old-fashioned clangers!
Megan Fox has offended her share of Hollywood bigwigs, but we’re more interested in quotes like ‘I wouldn’t regret the tattoo if we weren’t together. I can always have a kid and name him Brian. There are options.’ (About her tat of hubby Brian Austin Green’s name).
Here’s Cameron Diaz on finding her prince…’I would kiss a frog even if there were no promise of a Prince Charming popping out of it. I love frogs. I’d lick him.’
Sylvester Stallone fancies himself a bit of an artist. We think. ‘The only happy artist is a dead artist, because only then you can’t change. After I die, I’ll probably come back as a paintbrush.’ We don’t think even he knows what the devil he’s on about.
Think Keira Knightley’s a bit gorge? Think again. ‘I’m doing a film now with a lot of guys as well, so at the end of that I will be growing a beard.’
Alicia Silverstone proved just why she was chosen to play ditzy blonde Cher Horowitz when she said ‘I think that the film Clueless was very deep. I think it was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it’s true lightness.’ Translation suggestions on a postcard please.
We’ll leave you with the best thing Brooke Shields has ever said. “Smoking kills. If you’re killed, you’ve lost a very important part of your life.” Wise words.
The Rum Diary is out now. Here’s the trailer:
But just what is this Film Club malarkey all about? It’s simples, really. Each week we send a pair of cinema tix (ODEON or Cineworld, whichever is best) to 10 of our most active Facebook/Twitter followers. We put the film we’re going to see to the vote, and the winning film is the one we all go to see. Then we all sit around on Facebook on the Sunday night (6.30) and chat about it. Magic. Sound like something you want to get involved with? Drop us a line at twitter.com/f_t_r_c or on Facebook at on.fb.me/d4dMv8
