How To Spot Publicity Whores?


Caught in the Act! 

How Hollywood's bold-faced names secretly steer the celebrity news machine.

Excerpts from The Wall Street Journal article, March 4, 2006:

A delicate new game is under way between the stars and the vast gossip industry of TV shows, magazines and Web sites that feeds upon them.

It has always been a relationship built upon animosity and mutual need. But tensions have grown with the explosion of media running paparazzi photos of stars canoodling or emerging from coffee shops in frumpy track suits.

Now many stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Jessica Simpson are fighting back. They are hiring their own photographers to capture supposedly private rendezvous, tipping off reporters to their whereabouts and developing relationships of mutual back-scratching with magazine editors.

The result is the flowering of a genre: fake paparazzi journalism, or the staging of "unstaged" moments. It is an art form that benefits both stars and the press. Stars get to participate in the framing of their image and magazines appear to give readers a glimpse of the real celebrity untouched by public-relations varnish.

When Ms. Paltrow gave birth in 2004, she knew there would be a high bounty on the first photo of her newborn daughter. A staple of the celebrity press, the actress and her husband, Chris Martin, leader of the band Coldplay, decided to take matters into their own hands and tip off a photographer they knew, Steve Sands.

Mr. Sands took what appeared to be surprise shots of the two emerging from the hospital in London with the baby and sold them to People for $125,000, according to a person familiar with the arrangement. Larry Hackett, managing editor of People, says he knew that Mr. Sands had been tipped off by Ms. Paltrow. But he didn't see the need to inform readers about it. "I just don't know how illuminating it is," he says. Stephen Huvane, a publicist at public-relations firm PMK/HBH who handles Ms. Paltrow, confirms Mr. Sands's account. "You'll see a lot more of that happening," says Mr. Huvane.

The magazines are lucrative. US Weekly sells a million copies a week on the newsstand at $3.49 apiece. The magazine turns an operating profit of $50 million a year, says a person familiar with its accounts.

Network TV programs like Access Hollywood, cable channels like E! Entertainment Television Inc. and Web sites have added to the coverage. All these outlets compete for photos documenting the daily lives of a small cast of celebrities. These stars, in turn, seek to control their images without appearing to, because doing so would ruin their mystique.

"All those dirty little secrets in Hollywood include tipping paparazzi off and playing games with them," says New York-based public-relations professional Ken Sunshine, whose clients include corporations and stars such as Ben Affleck and Leonardo DiCaprio. He says people might find that "unethical" if they knew about it, "but unfortunately it seems to be an accepted part of the business."

Magazines have generally played along. In 2003, Ms. Jolie tipped off US Weekly that she would appear in a park one afternoon with her adopted son, Maddox, according to two people familiar with the situation. The actress had recently divorced actor Billy Bob Thornton, a relationship which was portrayed as reckless and bizarre. These two people say US Weekly knew Ms. Jolie had green-lighted the photo, which softened her image by showing her maternal side.

The photographers' onslaught has put stars in a tough spot. If they ignore the magazines, they let such pictures define their public image. But sitting down for formulaic interviews and staged publicity shots won't necessarily satisfy the magazines' lust for juicy stories.

The answer is manipulation so subtle it's hard to say if there's any manipulation at all. In January, when rumors swirled in the press that Ms. Jolie might be pregnant with the child of actor Brad Pitt, Ms. Jolie arranged for an employee of the charity Yéle Haiti to take a picture of her with her growing belly.

Ms. Jolie then let Yéle Haiti sell the picture to People, according to Mr. Hackett, the magazine's managing editor, and a representative for Mr. Pitt. A person familiar with the situation says People paid $400,000 for the picture. It appeared on the cover of the magazine with the headline: "Angelina Reveals: 'Yes, I'm Pregnant.' "

By arranging the Haiti photo, Ms. Jolie reaped several benefits. She ensured the picture was flattering. In diverting the money to charity, she put a twist on a tactic used by celebrities in recent years in which they arrange to be paid for wedding or baby photos with the proceeds going to charity. And Ms. Jolie reminded fans of her devotion to humanitarian causes. She had taken a hit months earlier when she struck up a relationship with Mr. Pitt shortly after his marriage to actress Jennifer Aniston broke up.

In many cases, stars don't need to try that hard. When celebrities pick a location like the terrace at the Ivy restaurant in Beverly Hills, they know they're liable to appear in the glossies the next week. A bank of photographers regularly sits on the other side of the street with long-range lenses. Actor Tom Cruise was thus captured on film last year when he roared up to the Ivy on his motorcycle accompanied by then-new girlfriend Katie Holmes.

"I would probably say at least 50% of what you see in terms of Hollywood coverage is something that was not necessarily born organically," says Janice Min, editor in chief of US Weekly. "This is a totally symbiotic relationship. This is how celebrities survive."

Not only does the 35-year-old actor say he wants children, but he also confirms reports he's dating fellow actor Jonathan Groff, who can currently be seen opposite Kelsey Grammar in "Boss" and is known for his guest-starring role as Jesse St. James on "Glee." Otherwise, though, he remains tight-lipped about the relationship, simply noting, "I'm incredibly happy, I'm incredibly lucky."

Still together? Nice :)

Gyllenhaal blues

Some of Jake Gyllenhaal’s closest pals are LAPD cops. The actor became tight with members of the force after shooting the movie “End of Watch,” and was overheard at the Toronto Film Festival saying “three of his closest friends today are cops” he met while working on the action thriller, said a source. Gyllenhaal hit a private dinner for the film at Toronto’s Soho House with co-star Anna Kendrick. He earlier attended a screening for 300 NYPD officers, telling them that training with police for the film “changed his life

4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I'd see him, and his smile. I'd hear his conversation and his silence ... until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless...

I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for them, knowing I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldn't admit the same. He had to go back inside soon. It was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn't tell me the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. I felt like I'd only imagined reciprocity for years. Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No, I wasn't on a cliff, I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be fine and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on. I kept up a peculiar friendship with him because I couldn't imagine keeping up my life without him. I struggled to master myself and my emotions. I wasn't always successful.

Before writing this I'd told some people my story. I'm sure these people kept me alive, kept me save ... sincerely, these are the folks I wanna thank from the floor of my heart. Everyone of you knows who you are ... great humans, probably angels. I don't know what happens now, and that's alrite. I don't have any secrets I need kept anymore. There's probably some small shit still, but you know what I mean. I was never alone, as much as I felt like it ... as much as I still do sometimes. I never was. I don't think I ever could be. Thanks. To my first love. I'm grateful for you. Grateful that even though it wasn't what I hoped for and even though it was never enough, it was. Some things never are ... and we were. I won't forget you. I won't forget the summer. I'll remember who I was when I met you.

Thanks. To my mother, you raised me strong. I know I'm only braved because you were first ... so thank you. All of you. For everything good. I feel like a free man. If I listen closely ... I can hear the sky falling too.

Jake Gyllenhaal Aids Eric Garcetti's L.A. Mayoral Campaign With 'End of Watch' Fundraiser http://shar.es/uhsXI
2h ago

^^ said...

The councilman, an accomplished jazz pianist and one-time musical theater composer, plays the part of L.A.'s mayor in the star’s forthcoming film, End of Watch. Garcetti always has had an eye for the cutting edge in culture and technology, and this time he’s capitalizing on his cameo by jumping on the latest campaign fundraising strategy -- a raffle-style giveaway.

This week, a select group of his supporters received an invitation to donate $50 to his mayoral effort, thereby entering their names in a drawing whose winners will attend a private screening of End of Watch with Garcetti and Gyllenhaal this Sunday, Sept. 16.

Garcetti’s campaign says he’s “running for mayor to put L.A. back to work,” and this week he gave his first major speech outlining his proposals, which include encouraging green industries and the burgeoning “Silicon Beach” high tech sector on the Westside. Garcetti, a one-time Rhodes Scholar who also attended the London School of Economics, also said he would set up a city office whose mission would be to encourage entrepreneurial graduates of local universities to site their enterprises in the city.

Box Office Magazine said...

Unforgettable pair Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña give Oscar-caliber performances - Fans of police dramas will gravitate but if queasier viewers can get behind some of the vivid violence, David Ayer's smartly written and directed film could cross over to upscale audiences looking for award-level entertainment. With top critical response, End Of Watch could turn into a mid-sized hit for Open Road that could even figure down the road in the Oscar race."

LOL! I am going to tweet at RH, and if he doesn't reply/retweet, then that means Ron knows me lmao

Ron knows Austin as Meryl Streep and Gwyneth Paltrow LOL!

Remember Austin's tweet about this 2 ladies?

Openly gay actor Rupert Everett says he can't think of 'nothing worse than having two gay dads'....

Oh God, now I feel sorry for her.

Ohhh..I just remembered: last night in between waking (thank you, daughter ><) I had this lovely dream in which I was standing on a pier facing the beach and I was talking to a friend or whatever. Then I looked past that person and saw Jake and what looked like either Matt or Chris going down the steps and as they reached the beach Matt/Chris suddenly hugged Jake from behind then as he let go he grabbed both his hands and both were laughing. The next second they both acted as if they were just friends..keeping up appearances, I guess :(

I was like omgomgomg I have to tell WFT! It all happened really fast...and then I woke up. :( I remember being very happy seeing them like that *sigh*

Anyway....just wanted to share.. ;)

Austin said...

fuck! he is cheating on me even in dreams!

Nev said...

Oh and Towleroad have some more about what Rupert Idiot Everett said

Nev said...

It definitely wasn't you Austin, sorry :(

Austin said...

Damn! Only my old friend Ron Howard can console me!

I hear Jake is headed out west.

There's a possibility of Jake hooking up with his F**kbuddy Austin while he's out on the west coast. You gotta know this.

Just to be fly on the wall. hmmm

But whatever will Austin do with his regular f**kbuddy when Jake is in town?
One only knows!

And, where the hell is PG girl?
Did she get mad and just go away from OMG?

Why is OMG a ghost town?

because PG is missing and she used to talk to herself all the time , half of the comments came from her

OMG said...

That is terrible thing to say, but Rupert living with all that self-hatred must be much worse.

Nev said...

2.57 I know. When that happened I felt like shit. :( I was really sad and so where they. It's funny because it's a dream but their mood change was so visible it was painful to watch. :(

Anonymous said...

I understand, but that is one of those dreams which stay with you and it's sweet that you care about Jake like that :)

Nev said...

It does make me smile when I think about the dream but if you asked my husband he'd roll his eyes and call me stupidly obsessed :p

Even though Jake Gyllenhall made out with Heath Ledger for money, I'll still see End of Watch because it's like #Southland.

Yeah I don't think she will be very happy about them right now . That ship just went down in a blaze of glory . One half of the "couple" called the idea of Larry "bullshit" on Twitter.
Tumblr tags for Larry Stylinson are glorious right now

Nev said...
