Emma Stone became ‘addicted to strength’ filming ‘Battle of the Sexes’

Published

(CNN)For Emma Stone, living up to the legacy of the indomitable Billie Jean King in “Battle of the Sexes,” about the infamous tennis match of the same name, was a big task to take on.

“It was the first time that I focused so, so much on the physicality of someone,” Stone told CNN. “Playing an athlete, that is how she was able to make change in the world…that was her avenue to this voice that she had. So, that made physicality incredibly important.”
Stone said the role called for her to get and look “stronger” — something she found empowering.

“It was the first time I’d ever felt like, ‘Oh my god, I can lift a lot of weight.’ And I understand how mentally, that can make you feel so strong,” she said. “It can make you feel like, ‘If I can throw this thing across the room, what else can I do?’ You feel like the Hulk, a little bit.”
In fact, she said, her newfound physical power was a little intoxicating.
“It was actually very cool. I did not know that I’d like it as much as I did,” she said. “At by end it was like, ‘Well, I’m addicted to strength. This is awesome.'”
It all ended up being worth it on screen too, says the real-life King.
“She’s so much like me in this,” she told CNN. “I mean, she gets my voice, my tempo, she gets my mannerisms. It’s pretty scary to see.”
Surreal as it was, King felt that she couldn’t have picked a better actress to portray one of the most important moments of her life.
“I’m lucky, I got the best one to play me,” she said. “I got the top of the heap.”
“Battle of the Sexes” is in theaters now.

Ariana Grande and James Corden’s gave ‘Titanic’ a soundtrack update and it is amazing

Published

If there were to be a remake of Titanic and you had to recast the roles of Rose and Jack, who would you choose?

After watching this Titanic soundtrack sketch from The Late Late Show your choice may just be Ariana Grande as the new Kate Winslet and James Corden as Leonardo DiCaprio.

The two performed an amazing five minute recap of the 1997 James Cameron classic, with an impressive set list of songs varying from Pitbull ft. Ke$ha’s “Timber” to One Direction’s “Steal My Girl.”

The ship’s collision with an iceberg is set to “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice, and the whole thing ends with an emotional rendition of “My Heart Will Go On.”

If you’re still emotionally raw from watching Jack meet his death in the ice-cold depths of the Atlantic, you might want to skip over Corden’s blasphemous re-enactment of the scene to N*Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye.”

“There’s no room for me up on that door, baby. Bye bye bye!”

It’s hard to hate on Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.

But comedian Ray Romano took exception to Hamm’s impression of him on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.

“He’s handsome and he’s funny, that son of a bitch,” Romano joked.

You’re damn right. Maybe we should be angry at Hamm, despite all of his positive, redeeming qualities and impressive acting skills.

Everyone’s favorite Parent Trap twin is a long way from Napa. Lindsay Lohan’s new MTV series Lohan Beach Club (working title)is taking the actress turned nightclub mogul to Mykonos, Greece.

The show’s exceptionally short first preview features Lohan proclaiming, “Pack your bags, MTV. We’re going to Mykonos!”—as well as a few lingering shots of (what appears to be) her newest nightclub location.

Few details about the series have been revealed, but MTV exec Nina Diaz promised viewers “a behind the scenes look at how a young, successful entrepreneur runs her empire.”

Lohan and longtime friend Tiffany Trump (yes, of the presidential Trumps) hung out in Mykonos late last week, but images of the two palling around have since been deleted. This could mean official series screen time for Tiffany, but only time will tell.

Lohan Beach Club is expected to premiere sometime in 2019.
