Jessica Chastain Set To Play Marilyn Monroe In ‘Blonde’

 

Jessica Chastain better start eating now.

Two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain is nearing a deal to play Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik's passion project “Blonde,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap. Representatives for Chastain and Worldview Entertainment did not immediately respond to requests for comment. First announced in 2010, “Blonde” is based on Joyce Carol Oates’ 700-page novel of the same name, which reimagines the inner, poetic and spiritual life of Norma Jeane Baker — the child, the woman and the fated-celebrity better known by her studio name of Marilyn Monroe.

In addition to having to gain 165 pounds and growing an eleventh toe for the role, Jessica Chastain has to "reimagine" how a neurotic, bipolar junkie who could crush the soul of a film set faster than Lindsay Lohan could one day become a feminist icon of relationships (divorced three times and died alone) and natural beauty (had implants and a nose job) for misguided chicks on Tumblr. I'd give her an Oscar for that.

Well, This Is Just Weird



The controversial 26-foot tall statue, ‘Forever Marilyn’, is being dismantled in Chicago to be taken to Palm Springs, and some people might find it creepy to see Marilyn Monroe in pieces like this. But please keep in mind that she was split in half a lot when she was alive.

Hollywood is Insane



In the new book, Hollywood Babylon: It’s Back, authors Danforth Prince and Darwin Porter have published full-frontal pictures of several actors including Johnny Depp (reportedly known as “donkey dick”), Sean Connery, and Ewan McGregor, James Woods, and Richard Gere. However, despite the explicit photographs, the real meat (haha, you see what I did there?!) of the book is the stories of old Hollywood that further prove the whole place needs to wiped out by an act of God. How crazy and depraved was Hollywood back then? Hold on to your fucking hat. Rush & Molloy report:

Dishing with abandon, the authors spare no one – especially not the dead, who can’t sue. Lack of sources don’t stop them from claiming:

Marilyn Monroe had an affair with Ronald Reagan. The authors also claim Monroe had a tryst with Joan Crawford but refused to make it an ongoing affair. “She had bad breath,” Monroe allegedly told roommate Shelly Winters. “Besides, she wanted to do things to me that no woman should do to another woman.”

James Dean showed a disconcerting interest in a 12-year-old boy in the early 1950s. Director Elia Kazan believed the tale: “I’ve known many actors who have been twisted up in their sex lives, but never anybody as sick and unhealthy as Dean was.”

Elvis Presley had a gay old time with Nick Adams, who played Johnny Yuma in the hit TV series “The Rebel.”

Lucille Ball launched herself into show business as a hooker, and her husband Desi Arnaz had a fling with Cesar Romero.

Cary Grant had an incestuous relationship with his stepson, Lance Reventlow.

Strange things happened to Judy Garland‘s body (this in the chapter on “Fan Worship and Necrophilia”).

Police believed Bette Davis killed her second husband, Arthur Farnsworth, by hitting him on the head and causing a hemorrhage that lead to his death two weeks later. But a grand jury – six men who confessed to being ardent fans – found her innocent.”

None of these stories can be confirmed of course, but I don’t have a problem believing any of them, because, um well, it’s Hollywood. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Denzel Washington slept with a severed head or if Ron Howard owns a private island where he hunts pregnant Haitian women.

Marilyn Monroe Has a Sex Tape



15-minutes of 16mm footage of Marilyn Monroe performing oral on an unidentified man sold for $1.5 million to an unnamed New York businessman. Keya Morgan, a famous memorabilia collector, discovered the film while doing research for a documentary about Monroe’s life. Morgan brokered the deal with the son of the FBI informant who made a copy of the footage before it was confiscated by J. Edgar Hoover. New York Post says:

The footage appears to have been shot in the 1950s. When it came to light in the mid-’60s, then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover had his agents spend two weeks futilely trying to prove that Monroe’s sex partner was either John F. Kennedy or Robert F. Kennedy, according to declassified agency documents and interviews, Morgan said. The silent black-and-white flick shows Monroe on her knees in front of a man whose face is just out of the shot. He never moves into the shot, indicating that he knew the camera was there, but Monroe never looks at the lens, said Morgan, who saw the footage.”

Jesus, this guy really should have put his face on camera. To reiterate, he was getting a blowjob from Marilyn Monroe. That’s the sex tape equivalent of a home video of him dunking on Bill Russell or pistol-whipping Joseph Stalin.

Jayne Mansfield is Not Heath Ledger



Naked pictures of Jayne Mansfield is pretty random but unless Heath Ledger comes back to life or Britney Spears dies, today sucks, so screw it. Here she is. Jayne Mansfield was blonde, had a huge rack, and her daughter turned out to be another hot MILF. There’s really not much more you could ask for in a woman back then. Except maybe to hurry up a little with the typing.

These are NSFW:

Megan Fox is Hot



It’s hard to believe chicks like Lindsay Lohan and Eva Longoria are able to top Maxim’s “Hot 100″ list with people like Megan Fox around, but whatever. Megan Fox, who’s most famous for being engaged to Brian Austin “David Silver” Green, is undeniably hot … but … oh my god, those lame, unoriginal, distracting tattoos ruin every one of these pictures. Why do people, especially gorgeous people who should be naked all the time, insist on putting so little thought into such a permanent mark? Do they think it’s a Pin the Tail on the Donkey game? Do they throw a blindfold on, spin around and pick anything on the wall of the tattoo shop? “Yay, Marilyn Monroe! Only 2 million other people have that tattoo already. Jackpot!”

Note: No offense if you’re one of those 2 million people. I’m sure yours is very original.
