Splendour in the Grass

Heath Ledger
Heath Andrew Ledger


What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind...

- William Wordsworth

Rolling Stone said...

March 23, 2006

''In the past,'' he says, ''I've tried so hard to withhold myself — even down to giving a smile.'' The actor, who is Australian, speaks with a commonwealth accent that's both arch and street. ''I didn't want to be people's opinions of who I am or what I said,'' he says. One day, his girlfriend, Michelle Williams, wrote a song title — ''Old Man River'' — on his forearm. Ledger got a tattoo artist to run the needles over her words, the way a shopkeeper will frame his first dollar. The song comes from a sad musical, and contains this key advice: ''He must know somethin', he don't say nothin'.''

So last summer, when the couple, first saw Brokeback Mountain — sitting in one of the poker-faced office towers of Manhattan — it should have been perfect: no people, no opinions. The room went dark. Ledger rides a horse, falls in love with another man, breaks his heart, misses out on the chance of his life. The lights came up, Ledger and Williams moved through the lobby. And Ledger had no idea what he'd just seen. ''I understood that it flowed, it was presented well. But whether it was good, whether it was bad — we walked out not knowing what we'd just watched.''

Ang Lee and James Schamus said...

Ang Lee May Re-Team with James Schamus for a New, “Suicidally Depressing” Feature
...
In an interview with THR’s Heat Vision Blog, writer/producer/studio big-wig James Schamus revealed that he has begun work on an as-yet-untitled script for Ang Lee to direct. Schamus has previously produced films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain for Lee along with writing scripts for both Hulk and Taking Woodstock.

Aside from the “suicidally depressing” part, details on this new feature are kind of thin. When asked if the script was an original concept or an adaptation of some kind, Schamus replied “It’s kind of a weird mix of both.”

Asked how he and Lee might proceed with their latest collaboration, Schamus admitted that Lee’s participation is not yet guaranteed:

“I never work that closely with him in the writing process. This (movie) was totally me. I became enamored of something and we had long talks about why… Once we’ve established that, I’ll go off and write, and maybe he’ll make it, maybe he won’t. There’s no contractual thing. This will be quite low budget.”

Caught in the Act!

Friday January 22, 2010

Rumor patrol: Adam Lambert was spotted chatting up ex Drake LaBry at the Mr. Black party at nightspot Bardot Hollywood, where the Idol runner-up set up shop on the patio and sipped vodka. There was "some heavy flirting going on," an onlooker tells us. But, another source assures us, they're just good friends. "They're not back together," the source says, "but they are still very close. Adam cares for him a lot."

Maggie Gyllenhaal treated her 3-year-old daughter Ramona to a cupcake – well, half a cupcake – at M Café Melrose in L.A. The actress asked the cashier to cup the dessert in half, before giving a piece to Ramona to eat on the spot. Gyllenhaal also picked up a chopped salad and some dinner specials to-go. Earlier that day, Glee stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron ordered sushi and deli salads, and even took some photos with two customers before leaving.

Heath Ledger gets rough and randy with Jake Gyllenhaal

We got hot just hearing Jake Gyllenhaal report to Elle Magazine (scroll down) on his kisses with Heath Ledger in the upcoming gay cowboy film Brokeback Mountain.

“Heath almost broke my nose in [a kissing] scene. He grabs me and he slams me up against the wall and kisses me. And then I grab him and I slam him up against the wall and I kiss him. And we were doing take after take after take. I got the [bleep] beat out of me. We had other scenes where we fought each other and I wasn’t hurting as badly as I did after that one.”

Slam, kiss, slam, kiss, [bleep]. Sounds like the new Colt Studios flick Buckleroos to us.

Dear Ted:
Just asking...if a Blind Vice is true and/or half of Hollywood already knows the truth, what legal trouble can you get in for revealing it?
—J.R.

Dear Naive:
On a lot of the gay ones, I could probably finagle an answer out of some, legally speaking. But in my gut, wouldn't do it. It's ultimately up to them. I'll gently push them, though: Come on, Toothy!

Dear Ted:
I hope all is well. My doggy sends a friendly "woof" to your kids! I have two questions. Not sure if this has already been asked, but first question is: Do Toothy and Grey Goose actively raise Baby Tile, or was this a "sire" situation? (As in Toothy, uh, provided elements to help make the baby for a friend or family member who is raising the baby). Second, of all the closeted Blind Vices you've reported over the years, which one is most likely to come out?
—Sarah

Dear Tough Questions:
(a) Active; (b) My guess? Crotch Uh-Lastic.

I'm sure she is visiting her father as well, but work is the main reason she is in L.A.

A Homosexual said...

pgirl asked "When anyone here was in grade school or junior high, did rubbing/circling/poking your finger against the palm of someone you were holding hands with, mean anything????"

Well, this one time? At band camp?

My best buddy (hunnerd percent straight) when we were about 12 did this thing that was really great.

We were totally bored during a lecture. Everybody was sitting on the floor, he was next to me. (I am a Homosexual.)

He took my hand and lightly dragged the eraser end of a pencil across my palm for several minutes. It kept me awake, and we quietly laughed about it. I did the same to him. We got in minor trouble and stopped.

P. S.: So in that particular case it did not mean that we wanted to have sex, but I think the lecturer thought we did, which is why we got a big glare from him. :D

The Little Dog Laughed review said...

When I saw Douglas Carter Beane's play on Broadway in 2006, I suggested it belonged to a specifically American genre: the gay boulevard comedy. But, although it is resolutely American, I hope it thrives over here because it deftly satirises Hollywood's eternal hypocrisy about sex; even today, as the programme reminds us, there are still no openly gay leading men in Tinseltown.

Carter Beane's play depends on an ingenious imbroglio. Diane, a top Hollywood agent, wants to make a movie of a hit New York play about male lovers. She's also desperate for her fast-rising client, the discreetly gay Mitchell, to star in it. To accomplish her aims, this power-dressed female Machiavel has to pull off two tricks: coerce the writer into turning his play into a hetero romance; and keep the sexual preferences of her client, who has fallen for a bisexual rent boy, under wraps. How Diane manages to cash in, while preventing her client coming out, motors the plot.

Admittedly, Carter Beane occasionally indulges in special pleading: Mitchell's argument that in America only "upper middle-class, straight, conservative men" can be what they want is, in the age of Oprah and Obama, open to all sorts of objections. But his play is both funny and perceptive about Hollywood's contempt for wordsmiths and its sexual double standards.

"A writer with the final cut?" shrieks Diane. "I'd rather give firearms to small children." We are also reminded that, even after Brokeback Mountain and Philadelphia, Hollywood thrives on sexual and professional secrecy. In a telling passage Diane reveals how she desisted from avenging herself on a director. If you want to win in Hollywood, she says, "all you have to do is shut up." The play belongs to Diane, and even if Tamsin Greig is a bit broader than her Broadway counterpart, she brings the right demonic energy and well-tailored control-freakery to the role: she is diabolically funny in the best scene where, at a lunch with the unseen writer, she conveys her deep-seated disdain for the "fag playwright".

Rupert Friend as her smitten client, Harry Lloyd as his boyish lover, and Gemma Arterton as the latter's disposable squeeze all offer good complementary support, and Jamie Lloyd's production is smooth as butter.

The play may be too showbizzy for some tastes but, behind its Manhattan waspishness, lurks a general truth: while Hollywood may be the global dream-factory, it still lies about its operatives' sex-lives.

CNN Is Tired of Aniston's Fauxmances said...

CNN vs Jennifer Aniston [This was not directly from CNN but HLN, the sister/brother/uncle/whatever site.]

People Magazine may be buying up all the real estate inside Jennifer Aniston’s ass but CNN has taken a decidedly different approach. Which is very surprising. And amazingly smutty. Mainstream outlets don’t usually go for the snark. Theirs is the clean and friendly approach. This why the Blog began to grow. Because you, me, the collective We were sick of the celebrity press machine spinning bullsh-t covered in sugar.

However CNN’s Showbiz Tonight the other night sounded more like a gossip blog than an entertainment tv show. Thanks to Sarah for the link.

They devoted 9 MINUTES to breaking down the Aniston Fraud.

What?

Yes. 9 minutes of what they call her Love Hoax, straight up calling her out on her PR shenanigans, suggesting that Fabulous at 40! pretends to date people only when she has to sell a movie.

What???

Yes. They discussed her “attention-seeking antics” on the heels of her Golden Globes“flirtation” with Spittle Gerard Butler to promote The Bounty Hunter, comparing it to her convenient Oscar date with John Mayer last year for the release of He’s Just Not That Into You. Then they introduced what they christened the Jennifer Aniston Pre-Movie Checklist noting 3 patented plays that Team Aniston always puts on the field when she wants you to see her at the movies. These plays are as follows:

1. Date a famous guy.
2. Racy magazine photos.
3. Tell-all interview about Brad Pitt

As if all that wasn’t enough, CNN then invited two panellists onto the program to collectively analyse Aniston’s famewhore game together. FULL FRONTAL ASSAULT.

This is almost unprecedented. All in good fun, but it’s extremely rare. And she’ll hear about it too. Stephen Huvane will hear about it and he will punish CNN. He’ll shut them out of her junket room, he’ll kick them off her carpet...

This is how the game works, this is why so many mainstream agencies have to stick their fingers down their throats to be nice. Journalistic freedom? Please. Not with the A list.

Which is why segments like these are so rare. Enjoy it while you can...

Jake Gyllenhaal is one of those guys who always needs a girlfriend

For some strange reason, the tabloids are full of stories about Jake Gyllenhaal this week. None of the stories is all that scandalous or interesting, but put them all together and perhaps a picture will form. What is that picture? That Jake could be very, very upset about his breakup with Reese, and that everyone is trying to help him and set him up on dates and cheer him up and give him advice. That’s seriously the theme of these stories… which I find strange. Do I buy that Jake is the kind of guy who gets utterly devastated by a breakup and mopes around Hollywood parties getting advice from Sean Penn? Hmmm…

First up, In Touch claims that Jake’s Brothers costar and friend Tobey Maguire tried to set him up with a Reese Witherspoon-lookalike, only this girl had curly hair. Jake and the girl “seemed to hit it off on their first date… he was listening intently whenever she spoke.” One of Jake’s “friends” tells the mag that Jake is “lonely” and that he “wants a girlfriend.” Oh, he’s one of those guys. Those guys who don’t know how to function without a girlfriend or wife. Those guys are strange, in my opinion.

Meanwhile, Star Magazine reports that Reese and Jake are still talking, and might consider getting back together. Reese is “torn apart” since dumping Jake, and her kids are upset too. A friend tells Star: “Reese said Ava has been e-mailing Jake, asking him to come back. Reese says she realizes he’s more mature than she gave him credit for, and he won’t just walk away from her like Ryan did. That was her big concern.” And what about Jake? “His heart was broken… he said they should take a few months to figure out where they stand.”

And finally, both Star Magazine and the National Enquirer have stories about Jake and Sean Penn bonding or something. In Star’s version, Sean was introducing Jake to models at a party a few weeks ago, and Sean and Tobey Maguire acted as Jake’s “wingmen” because he was too shy to talk to the girls right away. This version seems totally… weird. The Enquirer’s version sounds a bit better though:

Bad boy Sean Penn is giving Jake dating advice!

Jake was moping his way through a party at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont on January 9 when Penn stepped in.

“It was obvious Jake was upset. He wasn’t smiling or talking much, so Sean walked over to him, patted him on the back, and told him to be thankful he and Reese never got married,” an insider divulged. “Sean told Jake that marriage is overrated, and he should enjoy the single life because he has the rest of his life to be married.”

“Jake looked like he was taking Sean’s anti-marriage advice to heart. He smiled a lot more after their little chat.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, February 1, 2010]

Okay, how screwed up do you have to be to not only get advice from Sean Penn, but to actually take that advice? If Sean Penn told me to duck, I would jump up. If he told me to go right, I would go left. If he told me to zig, I would zag. So, my advice to Jake: either ignore Penn, or just do the opposite of whatever he told you. So… don’t enjoy the single life. Get married. And continue moping around.

Maybe the event planners approach him and ask him to take part and he agrees (maybe because he can't say no to their face, but then cancels it last minute (and goes to a concert instead. ;))) or they approach his management and they agree because it's also good publicity. Sometimes he does show up, but often he did not.

Anonymous said...

IMO Jake's name, along with the many other celebs, was initially put on the charity announcement list [and other past charity lists] to warrant priority mentions of the event in the media, to garner public attention to the charity event, and to help draw other celebs to participate.

When groups do stuff like that, they put Jake (and other celebs) between a rock and a hard place. What's he going to do, deny that he's for a charitable foundation?! And then when he isn't on the final announcement list or doesn't appear at the function, he looks like a flake - even though he was never supposed to be there in the first place. But the public doesn't know that.

I don't know if they were "sightings" sightings, but a few people reported they saw him at the concert.

Maybe the event planners approach him and ask him to take part and he agrees (maybe because he can't say no to their face, but then cancels it last minute

My bet is that (1)his PR person gets an email or maybe a phone call about an event (2)the charity person is pushy (3)to placate the charity person and get them to quit bothering them the PR person says "Well, I don't know his firm schedule and I have to ask him about this first, but pencil him in anyway" (4)the charity person knows what the PR person said was shit but since he was "penciled in" uses his name on the initial announcement list as a hook. And prays to god that maybe, just maybe he really will be interested, i.e. bored, needing PR, or gasp - a true charitable interest - in participating.

Why are people so upset about Jake maybe not working the phones? After seeing the devastation in Hiati and you're upset because you won't get your peek at Jake on TV or maybe hear his voice over the phone, then maybe this telethon was a bad idea. Its not about the stars, its about them helping and getting others to help. Don't be mad at Jake and critize him for what you perceive as him dodging out on a charity just because you rather focus on him instead of the cause. He may not be there for his fans to gawk at, it doesn't mean he hasn't participated and donated. Its not the Jake Gyllenhaal Telethon.

Maybe Jake didn't want to be seen publicly the second anniversary of Heath's death. You may think he has forgotten the date but I doubt those who loved Heath have forgotten what today is.

Odd how the Cafe Gratitude tweeter took pics of the food at his/her table, but none of Jake. Makes me wonder, is the tweet true?

Btw and before anyone says it (or some other tweets past/future) was PR generated or a PR fake tweet account blah blah, please keep in mind that people can have "inside jokes" between them, or can mistake someone else for Jake. There's all sorts of reasons why Jake's name can end up on a tweet or a blog.

Anonymous said...

Evelyn O'Neill is his manager, his PR rep is Carrie Bycilick (sp?). She would be the one that arranges things like that.

Not to be disrespectful, even though I think Jake cared deeply for Heath, I doubt he's the reason Jake might not being there. Maybe like a poster said, it was just a misinfo that he'll participate anyway.

I agree. Not so much because she was a beard, but because I think they were friends first before the bearding started. IMO something happened during the bearding that totally ended the friendship as well. Something like Jake got to know what the real Reese was about. And I also think that while his method to deal with it is to not have anything to do with her, her way is to be full of revenge and spite. I'd avoid her arrogant narcissistic ass too if I were Jake.

Yep Jake's career is over. Maybe they didn't have a spot for him, there were alot of celebs just walking around and some just sitting there. Not all of them stayed on the phones for the whole two hours. Maybe Jake's contribution was the Red Cross PSA with the other 3 celebs and it.

Jake wasn't there because CAA put his name on the list w/o his Ok just to get his name out there, he never intended to go. Same with Renee Zweigler and Meryl Streep and a few others I'm sure we missed.

The fact that you actually thought that he didn't attend because she was there says that you don't think much if him.

They are professional, they taped that PSA, sure they did it separetly but still. I'm sure if he wanted to take calls they could have placed him far away, he's a grown man. Or he could have taped a segment, but he chose not to or do a live feed from SF where he arrarently is like Clint and Matt but he didn't.

He wouldn't have gone even if she wasn't there. He seems to really have one chaeity that he is passionate about: The Green Global org. and that's probably because one of their intitives is growing organic food, etc. Something that interest him being a cook.

The positive about Jake not being there, in a couple weeks when the sincerity of the celebrities who were at the telethon is questioned, Jake's name won't come up. I think he believes in the cause and we don't know how else he contributed besides the PSA. Alot of celebrites don't feel the need to show the public that they care by parading themselves on TV for two hours. How of those same celebrities from tonight be there six months down the road?

10:21 PM, I think there are celebs who genuinely care for the cause like Clooney who organized it. I realize many celebs who donated money and announced it, announced it for publicity. But they still gave. That's what counts. Though I hope there are celebs who gave and didn't feel the need to announce it. I doubt there are many of them though.

Asked if he thinks it’s important for young gay people to have positive role models, his ambivalence vanishes. 'I really agree with that, and I feel in my heart that it’s important, but I don’t quite know yet the way to go about that. Maybe that’s the transitional thing I feel I’m in the middle of at the moment. It’s something I think about, but it’s important for me to do it at the time that’s right for me. And I’m not there yet.'

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
