Who’s a cat person? Not me, but I do appreciate how people fall in love with their feline companions. I find it amusing how even the coldest people suddenly melt when they are around their cat. And Hollywood guys – tough or not – are not exempt from the charms of these stately (and not quite domesticated) creatures!
Now who would have thought that Guns ‘n Roses frontman Axl Rose loves cats? Apparently, he introduced his cat to the world via his Twitter account, and he had only one word to say “Dijon”. Nice name for a cat, if I say so myself!

James Franco is not afraid to go outside of the box to take on challenging roles. Including in those roles have been several LGBT characters, including his role in Howl and as Harvey Milk in the aptly titled Milk, now Franco is featured in drag on the Fall/Winter 2010-2011 cover of Candy Magazine.
The pictures (shown below) were taken by photographer Terry Richardson.
According to PopCrunch Candy Magazine is:
“the first fashion magazine ever completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations.”

Just in case you hadn’t heard the news, James Franco isn’t a gay stoner, that news comes from insider James Franco.
Franco took part in an interview with gay-friendly magazine Advocate and he told the magazine that moviegoers have a preconceived notion of him as a person thanks to the unconventional roles he prefers to play. Franco plays gay characters in the movies Howl, Milk and Pineapple Express.
When asked if he would talk about his sexuality if he was gay, he had this to say:

Last week I reported that James Franco would be teaching a class at Yale University while working on his Ph.D. Franco made the announcement during an appearance on Good Morning America, now we’ve come to learn that Yale has blocked those plans.
Apparently professors at Yale must have at least three years of Ph.D studies before they are eligible to teach on campus, even if that teaching is just a single class. Read the rest of this entry »

James Franco is moving from the silver screen to the halls of Yale University. According to recent reports the UCLA graduate who also studied film at New York University and received his masters degree of fine arts from Columbia University will begin working towards his doctorate in English and film studies at the university, where he’ll also be teaching his own “very special class.”
Franco told Good Morning America:
“I am going to teach at Yale. It’s in the works. I have a very special class I will be teaching next January.”
The news of Megan Fox not returning for Transformers 3 only came out a few days ago, but she’s already been replaced with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Never heard of Rosie, but she’s a very sultry young Victoria’s Secret model and current GF of Jason Statham. I’m guessing Rosie isn’t going to make as much as Megan, but I doubt Michael Bay will take HuffPo writer Lee Stranahan’s advice to put the difference in salaries into a benefits and retirement fund for visual artists — i.e., the real reason, says Lee, for why the Transformers franchise has done so well. Well I haven’t seen Transformers and am in no rush to, but Lee is probably right. Why else are all these movies based on toys doing so well?
So Tiger Woods is potentially about to pay his Elin Nordegren $750M in their divorce settlement, to keep quiet — and could lose any custody of his kids, who’ll probably live in Europe far away from him — and what does he do? He goes out with some mystery blonde. (No, nobody has any photos; just be happy we’re telling you any of this, so you can stay informed.) Dude, I’d be crying in my pitcher of vodka and really fruity juices. Wait, did I say that? I guess maybe old Tiger just has an addiction for cat. Meow. Purr. What would you expect if you name your kid Tiger? And what is he trying to hide? $750M is a lot of hush money.
Hey you might be a star, but that doesn’t mean the rules should be different for you. James Franco found that out when he was chewed out by his college professor for sending text messages during a lecture. Tsk tsk, James.
I’m guessing Jesse James is getting ready to stalk be closer to Sandra Bullock in hopes of getting her back little baby Louis Bardo, whom he and Sandra adopted as a couple. He’s auctioning off a bunch of rare pre-WW II bikes and some hand painted coffins. He’s eyeing moving to Austin, and I guess he’s broke and needs the money. Yes, Austin, where Sandra moved to to presumably get away from him. Apparently an US Weekly source says Jesse wants to lead a very quiet life and get back to a normal routine. What they left off their comment was that being a douchebag seems to have been part of his normal routine in the past.

There aren’t lot of new films opening this week, possibly because it’s hard to compete with blockbusters like Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, and others. IMDB lists four new relases, and get more details from their profile pages, which I’ve linked to from each movie’s title.
Still in theaters are recent releases Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, Letters to Juliet, Just Wright, How to Train Your Dragon (animated), A Nightmare on Elm Street, Date Night, The Backup Plan, Furry Vengeance, Clash of the Titans, and others.
Enjoy your movie-watching weekend.
