Christopher Walken’s cats are his kids: ‘I think a lot of people are like that’

walken1

We rarely cover Christopher Walken, although the man is a national treasure. He’s just not controversial at all – he seems like a nice guy, everyone loves him, he loves to dance, and as we can see from this Parade cover, he loves cats. He’s promoting a family film called Nine Lives, where he plays a magical pet shop owner. Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Garner are in the movie too. Weird. Anyway, this whole interview is charming, mostly because he talks about CATS! You can read the full Parade piece here, and here are some highlights:

But what happened to The Cat’s kittens? Did the Walkens give the kittens away? Or did he bring the kittens inside and now The Cat is the only one who prefers being outside? So many questions. I actually love that he calls his cat The Cat. I did that with my dog too – my (late) puppy had a real name, but I mostly just called him “Puppy” or “Black Dog.” I’m thinking about getting another animal – from a shelter – and I do think I’ll get a cat this time.

2016 Emmy nominations: who got recognized & who got snubbed?

2016 Emmy nominations: who got recognized & who got snubbed?

GOT1

As previewed yesterday, the 2016 Emmy nominations were finally announced this morning in LA. It feels like people were especially excited about this year’s nominations, likely because there’s always the hope that the Emmy voters might begin to phase in some new shows and new people. And it seems like every year, we’re disappointed with the same old people and same old shows. Is it the same this year? Here are the major nominations, and you can see the full list here at the Emmys main site. This year’s Emmys telecast will be on September 18th on ABC.

Those are the big ones, but you can see the supporting actor noms in Comedy here. I was really worried that Game of Thrones got snubbed in all of the acting categories, but NO! GoT actors flooded the supporting categories which… I agree with that. Dinklage didn’t need another nomination, but he is one of the best actors on the series, so be it. I LOVE that Kit Harington got nominated (SadFace might even win!), and I love that Maisie Williams, Lena Headey and yes, even Emilia Clarke got recognized.

I know many of you will love that The Americans finally got some major love, as did Mr. Robot and Master of None. I’m not shocked that Downton Abbey got some noms (even though the last season was all over the place), and I’m not shocked that The Night Manager got some love too – it was a really well-done miniseries. And look, Tom Hiddleston got his first Emmy nomination! The Tiddlesbanging was all worth it, people!

Willow & Jaden Smith: We can control time & education is useless

Willow & Jaden Smith: We can control time & education is useless

Willow Smith

Willow and Jaden Smith are living proof that a super-permissive set of parents can churn out some spacey kids. Will Smith believes that children should be given a lot of control at an early age, which is the way that Scientologists raise their children. The Smiths founded a now-defunct school that used CO$ teaching methods; so the little bit of formal education that Jaden and Willow have received has been Scientology-based.

These kids no longer go to school even though Willow is still 14, and Jaden is 16. He regularly tweets nonsensical blather, including telling his followers that school is a “tool to brainwash the youth,” and babies are more intelligent than adults. That last part sounds very CO$, which believes that children are simply adult souls trapped in younger bodies.

I’m not making fun of Jaden’s intelligence. He hasn’t received regular schooling, and it shows. Jaden and Willow have been allowed to do whatever they want for a long time. They both have new albums this month, so the NYT’s T mag profiled them, and it’s a doozy. The whole interview is here. Willow claims to be really into quantum physics, which was of interest to L. Ron Hubbard as he wrote the sci-fi novels that form the basis of Scientology. Former upper-echelon CO$ member Marty Rathbun has written at length about how quantum physics can be useful in “understanding” CO$.

The NYT journo only asks a few questions of Willow and Jaden, and they run a bizarre relay-monologue that continues unabated. Willow goes off on tangents like this: “And the feeling of being like, this is a fragment of a holographic reality that a higher consciousness made.” Then they start talking about controlling time:

On time
WILLOW: “I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.

JADEN: “It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.”

WILLOW: “Because living.”

JADEN: “Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.”

On breathing:
WILLOW: “Breathing is meditation; life is a meditation. You have to breathe in order to live, so breathing is how you get in touch with the sacred space of your heart.”

JADEN: “When babies are born, their soft spots bump: It has, like, a heartbeat in it. That’s because energy is coming through their body, up and down.”

WILLOW: “Prana energy.”

JADEN: “It’s prana energy because they still breathe through their stomach. They remember. Babies remember.”

WILLOW: “When they’re in the stomach, they’re so aware, putting all their bones together, putting all their ligaments together. But they’re shocked by this harsh world.”

JADEN: “By the chemicals and things, and then slowly…”

WILLOW: “As they grow up, they start losing.”

JADEN: “You know, they become just like us.”

On careers
JADEN: “What’s your job, what’s your career? Nah, I am. I’m going to imprint myself on everything in this world.”

School is the unlearning of things:
JADEN: “Kids who go to normal school are so teenagery, so angsty.”

WILLOW: “They never want to do anything, they’re so tired.”

JADEN: “You never learn anything in school. Think about how many car accidents happen every day. Driver’s ed? What’s up? I still haven’t been to driver’s ed because if everybody I know has been in an accident, I can’t see how driver’s ed is really helping them out.”

WILLOW: “I went to school for one year. It was the best experience but the worst experience. The best experience because I was, like, ‘Oh, now I know why kids are so depressed.’ But it was the worst experience because I was depressed.”

JADEN: “I have a goal to be just the most craziest person of all time. And when I say craziest, I mean, like, I want to do like Olympic-level things. I want to be the most durable person on the planet.”

WILLOW: “I think by the time we’re 30 or 20, we’re going to be climbing as many mountains as we can possibly climb.”

[From NYT – T Magazine]

Praise Xenu, these kids’ words read like robotic gibberish. They don’t know why babies’ soft spots exist, and they’re “in the stomach“? *shakes head* Jaden’s logic on how driver’s ed doesn’t prevent accidents is sad. That’s like saying doctors shouldn’t exist because people still die every day. Come to think of it, Scientologists don’t believe in medical care. They also believe that car accidents only happen to people who hang with non-CO$ types (suppressive persons). Jaden wants to be “the most durable person on the planet,” which may have something to do with the Clear (or practically immortal) state. I don’t know where the “prana” fixation fits in with the CO$. That word originated from in Hindu philosophy, and quantum physics grabbed onto the term.

Will and Jada have the freedom to raise (or not raise) their kids however they see fit. They’re doing Willow and Jaden a huge disservice, but there’s enough family money to pad these kids’ lives (and therapy sessions) forever. What bothers me is that Jaden and Willow make music that kids listen to. My teenage daughter has heard a few of Willow’s songs and enjoyed them. We’ve looked at Jaden’s crazy tweets together and discussed. Normal parents must work overtime when influential, lazy parents like Will and Jada Smith let their own kids talk smack about education.

Jennifer Aniston in Antonio Berardi at the UK ‘Bosses’ premiere: cute or blah?

Jennifer Aniston in Antonio Berardi at the UK ‘Bosses’ premiere: cute or blah?

FFN_HorribleBosses_FFUK_111214_51582848

Here are some photos from last night’s London premiere of Horrible Bosses 2. The principal cast made it to London – Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day – plus Jennifer Aniston. Aniston is the only “horrible boss” I see? The film’s other “bosses” are Chris Pine, Christoph Waltz (he must have needed a paycheck) and Kevin Spacey. Blah.

So, obviously, Aniston was the most interesting person there as far as fashion. She wore this Antonio Berardi Spring 2015 which… eh. I think Jennifer is trying to work it and make it sexy/sophisticated (especially with the built-in red bustier detail), but I kind of think she looks a tad uncomfortable in it. It’s not her standard-issue little black dress and it’s not the silhouette that she’s used to, but hey… she’s sort of getting out of her comfort zone, so give her a slow clap. I kind of think her hair looks kind of dull too – her red carpet hair is usually bouncy, tousled, with volume. It looks like she just did the flat-iron and called it a day.

Here’s something interesting: Justin Theroux came with her to London. They flew in together on Tuesday and he was seen leaving a London hotel during the day yesterday (I’m including some photos in this post). But… Justin didn’t walk the red carpet with her. He didn’t even POSE on the red carpet separately. I mean… are they still doing that? The jig is up. We know they’re together. They’ve walked red carpets together before. Why play that game? Did she make him wait in the car?!

I’m also including photos of Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. Olivia’s black dress is Michael Kors. Now THAT looks like something Jennifer would have loved to wear. It’s okay on Olivia. Nothing special.
