Jared Leto To Receive Breakout Performance Honor At Hollywood Film Awards (exclusive)
Mayer, William Fox, the Warner brothers and others ought to have acted in accord with a higher standard when they were neither elected representatives nor moral philosophers. They were moviemakers, and all they wanted was to amass fortunes and sit at the best table in the Brown Derby and play their mogul games and sing their mogul songs. If they prostituted themselves, they may have been shameful, but they were true to their nature. But if Urwand labors to turn a scholarly molehill into a mountain, he does the opposite in narrative moments throughout The Collaboration. One such instance occurs on the first page of the prologue, a description of a private viewing of King Kong. They saw an enormous gorilla . . . fall off the Empire State Building, Urwand writes. One of the characters muttered something about beauty and the beast. One of the characters? Muttered? Something? In fact, the speaker is Carl Denham (not so incidentally a movie director, who sets the entire plot in motion), and he clearly declares, It was beauty killed the beast. One of the most famous lines in movie history, this is hardly a random aside; its the take-away.

Leto, 41, has been acting for years. He first rose to prominence on the TV show My So-Called Life (1994-1995), and then transitioned into films, including Steve James’ Prefontaine (1997), Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line (1998), James Mangold’s Girl, Interrupted (1999), Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream (2000), Fincher’s Panic Room (2002), Mary Harron’s American Psycho (2000), Andrew Niccol’s Lord of War (2005) and J.P. Schaefer’s Chapter 27 (2007), a Mark David Chapman biopic for which he famously gained 67 pounds. In Dallas Buyers Club, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, Leto is virtually unrecognizable as Rayon, a transsexual — inspired by a real person — who is diagnosed with AIDS during the early days of the epidemic. Leto’s character becomes an unlikely associate and business partner of Matthew McConaughey’s Ron Woodroof, who begins importing and selling non-toxic, anti-viral medications that have not been approved by the FDA but have proven vastly more effective than any that have been. They don’t stop the progression of the deadly plague, but they slow it considerably. (Leto shed 40 pounds to play the part.) STORY:Toronto: Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto Make Oscar Cases in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ The Hollywood Film Awards are determined by founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu and an advisory committee.

Of course, he does the selfies, as he did model for Abercrombie & Fitch. Scott will star as a surfer-turned-Marine in the upcoming murder drama “Dawn Patrol,” and another surfer lead in the “The Perfect Wave,” due out next spring. Another hunk is Hugh Jackman, while a little older than Scott Eastwood, still very handsome. In his new movie “Prisoners,” Jackman stars as a father on a desperate search for his missing daughter and best friend. The thriller tells the story of the search for two young girls who are kidnapped on Thanksgiving Day. Jackman grows frustrated with the legal system and the police investigation and employs his own methods to find out what happens. It’s actually the first film of fall with Oscar aspirations. As he prepared for the film, Jackman thought of his own children going missing. His character in the film struggles with the pace of the police investigation, which is played by Jake Gyllenhaal. The actor who is best known for his role in Wolverine, has been quoted as saying the filming was intense. Which actor is separating from his wife of 11 years? According to published reports, Richard Gere and Carey Lowell, are planning to file for divorce. Page Six, exclusively reveals, Gere, 64, and model/actress, Lowell , 52, haven’t been photographed since the film “Arbitrage,” was screened last year. They seemed to have drifted apart.
