Charlie Hunnam Was Only Gonna Get $125K For ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

 

Because the book already has a built in audience and will probably be seen more than once in the theater by bored housewives and undersexed chicks (see: Magic Mike), you already know 50 Shades of Grey is gonna make a killing despite the fact that it sucks. The only way this wouldn't make back its entire budget in the first two weeks is if they cast Jennifer Aniston. So, it's kinda weird that they would give the star of the movie, Charlie Hunnam, only $125K. THR reports:

According to another source, Hunnam, who was to be paid about $125,000 for the film, began butting heads with the creative team, including Taylor-Johnson. The conflict reached a fever pitch in early October, though everyone involved thought the issues had been resolved. But the discord spiked again Oct. 11. Hunnam's team at CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners strongly advised him to stay on the project for fear that his exit would embarrass Langley — new to the chairman job — and burn a bridge with one of the major studios. That same day, Universal hired writer Patrick Marber — no stranger to taboo sex themes with his Oscar-nominated screenplay Notes on a Scandal — to do a polish and bolster the characters. But by then, Hunnam, whose heart it seems never was in the project, had decided to decamp. The next morning, the studio announced his departure, and James tweeted, "I wish Charlie all the best." Universal and CAA declined comment.

You can say $125K is a lot of money if you want, and you'd be right, but its all relative. A studio spends more on stilts for a Tom Cruise movie than they were gonna pay this dude for a movie adaptation of a book that has sold over 70 million copies. I assume Hunnam dropped out because there's a reason why it's called "selling out". $125K isn't selling out money. That's money Samuel L. Jackson would get for voicing a cartoon possum who owns a barbershop.

She’s also not a suicidal husband of anyone on a Bravo show, an artificially avant garde pop star, or on Jersey Shore. Seeing as I have football to watch, whiskey to shoot, and cupcakes to eat, those are reasons enough.

Blame The Black GuyBy jessAugust 21, 2011

Kim Kardashian got married last night, sold the photos to People, and will televise it on E! in October. In case you forgot why she was famous, look above. Oh, and read this from Radar.

Rapper Ray J is taking credit for all the worldwide interest in Kim Kardashian. The rapper who “co-starred” with Kim in an infamous sex tape, texted her a message that said just that, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. “And to think you really have me to thank for all this ;-)” a source tells us Ray J texted the bride! This isn’t the first time Ray has taken credit for Kim’s success. Earlier this year, he told an interviewer he had “created” her. A graphic sex tape of the two was leaked in February, 2007, and Vivid Entertainment jumped in with plans to professionally release it. Kim filed a $5 million lawsuit against the porn company. The parties settled for an undisclosed amount.

I’m happy that Ray-J’s admitting his guilt. To be fair, he had accomplices OJ Simpson and Ryan Seacrest, but they’re both already imprisoned–one in jail, one in the closet.

This Will End WellBy jessAugust 20, 2011

Charlie Sheen took Brooke Mueller to Mexico. Us Weekly says:

The divorced duo was spotted in L.A. Friday hopping aboard a private jet, and a source tells Us Weekly Sheen, 45, and Mueller, 34, are “thinking of getting back together.” The fired Two and a Half Men star — whose character is reportedly killed off in the season premiere — is currently paying Mueller $55,000 per month in child support. (The two are parents to 2-year-old twins Bob and Max.) On Christmas day in 2009, Sheen allegedly held a knife to Mueller’s throat and threatened to kill her. He later pled guilty on lesser charges and spent time in rehab, not jail. Since the incident, the two had lived apart, although their divorce wasn’t officially granted until this past May. A source tells Us the parents have been “getting counseling and therapy [with] the boys” and Mueller, who has struggled with substance addiction, is “actually responding to treatment.” “She’s totally gung-ho,” the source adds. “He just wants his kids to be happy, and if that means they need to be a family, then he is up for it… The kids have suffered a lot, and he feels so guilty lately.”

Arianny Celeste tweeted these pics of her in a bikini yesterday, and if you don’t know who she is, she’s an American model best known for being an Octagon girl for the UFC. And she’s 3/4 Mexican and 1/4 Filipino. And she’s from Las Vegas. In November 2010, she posed for Playboy. Wow, it seems like I know more about Arianny Celeste than I thought. Man, it’s almost like we’re dating. I mean, the papers her lawyers sent me didn’t use that exact term, but what do they know of love?

Angelina Jolie is HospitalizedBy toddMay 29, 2009

Angelina Jolie was rushed to the hospital today after she injured her head performing a stunt on the set of Salt. TMZ reports:

Her manager tells us she was doing a stunt when the incident occurred. He says she is completely fine. We just got a statement from the film’s production company: “This morning while filming an action sequence… Angelina Jolie sustained a minor injury. As a precautionary measure, Ms. Jolie will be taken to the hospital and examined. Production on the film has resumed.”

Angelina Jolie plays a CIA operative in this movie, but what is she fighting bears? She didn’t get hurt in Tomb Raider or Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but now she might have a head injury? What the hell kinda movie is this? I really hope she doesn’t die. Not that I would be sad or anything, but I imagine sneaking into a morgue with wine and a mix tape would be somewhat difficult.
