Pitch Perfect 3 Star Anna Kendrick on the Acting Bug, Breaking Down in Front of Bette Midler and Why the World Loves the Bellas

NOVEMBER 10, 2017

Only 12 when she was nominated for a Tony award for her role in Broadway’s High Society, Anna Kendrick, now 32, has worked her way onto the big screen in nearly every way. The Maine native broke through in the YA fantasy Twilight (2008) and co-starred alongside George Clooney in the drama Up in the Air (2009), for which she was nominated for an Oscar. But she reigned as a fan favorite in Pitch Perfect (2012) as Beca, an awkward college student with an angelic voice who joins an oddball mix of women in their a cappella singing group, the Bellas. Kendrick and her crooning crew will return in Pitch Perfect 3 (December 22), facing off against younger, hipper competition on their (possibly) farewell tour. Read More

“Life Moves Pretty Fast: The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies” by Hadley Freeman, Simon and Schuster, 339 pages, $16 paperback original.

Let’s start with “Steel Magnolias.” What is widely known now as as the Bechdel Movie Test for well-represented women in movies, came from cartoonist Allison Bechdel whose formulation was: A movie “has to have at least two women in it. 2) Who talk to each other. 3) About something besides a man.” U. K. Guardian columnist Freeman formulates the “Magnolia Test” to determine “whether or not a movie is a proper women’s movie: 1) The cast is largely, maybe even solely, female. 2) The female characters talk to each other about a million things other than men and genuinely like each other .3) And the relationship between the women is far more important than any they have with a man. 4) Bonus points if any of the following are in the film: Shirley MacLaine, Dolly Parton, Bette Midler, Olympia Dukakis. Triple for Sally Field.” Read More

Bette Midler Compares Blake Shelton To John Wayne

Bette Midler Compares Blake Shelton To John Wayne
OCTOBER 29, 2016

30quote1

Bette Midler certainly seems to be enjoying her first season as a judge on ‘The Voice‘.

She told Celebuzz that she was unsure about taking the job at first, but that a friend convinced her by telling her to “show them what it means to be a performer”.

She also really seems to like Blake Shelton. “Blake is a hoot!” said the Hocus Pocus star, “He is on the small screen, but I personally think—if I were his agent—I would get him on a big screen as quick as possible… He’s so photogenic, like a John Wayne Type.” Read More

Queen Of Twitter: We’re Taking Bette Midler’s Tweets About Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber Way Too Seriously

We’re Taking Bette Midler’s Tweets About Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber Way Too Seriously

Midler’s mastery of the platform comes with some bite, but that’s a good thing.

Maybe the reigning queen of Twitter isn’t some young thing with a reality-TV pedigree or a brand that’s reached the apex of hashtag mastery. Maybe the platform’s greatest artiste is one Bette Midler. The singer, actress, comedian, and wordsmith recently discussed her philosophy about the social platform with People. She said, “I look at it as entertainment. I don’t take it seriously. It’s easier to write a thought in 140 characters than it is to waffle on for acres and acres and acres of words. If it amuses a few people a couple times a day, great. They shouldn’t look for anything more than that.” Read More

Bette Midler On Being A Transplanted New Yorker:

Bette Midler On Being A Transplanted New Yorker: We had a lot of earthquake damage (in L.A.) to take care of. There were a lot of things like `What are we going to do, are we going to tear the chimney down?’ There were all those kinds of decisions in the middle of trying to put the show back together. It was a strain, but we’re fine now. We tore the chimney down, by the way.” (Boston Globe, 1994)
