Ellen Page: Bryan Singer Claims Are Disturbing

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rumors

Ellen PageEllen Page has called the sexual abuse allegations against X-Men director Bryan Singer "super disturbing."

The actress, who stars in X-Men: Days of Future Past, has spoken out about Bryan's ordeal, after two men accused him of abuse when they were teenagers.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the star called the claims "super, super disturbing" and said, "I guess the truth will come out in the way that it does, but it's hard to hear about someone being in that situation, someone you like working with." But whatever happens in the case, she said, "I do think that there's a systematic issue of people in places of power manipulating and abusing young people."

Bryan, 48, was hit with a second sexual abuse lawsuit this month after a man accused him of allegedly abusing him at a London hotel with Broadway producer Gary Goddard when he was just 17.

Bryan SingerBryan Singer has been hit with a second sexual abuse lawsuit.

The X-Men: Days of Future Past director has now been accused by a British man of allegedly abusing him at a London hotel with Broadway producer Gary Goddard when he was just 17. The unnamed man's lawyer, Jeff Herman, announced during a Los Angeles press conference yesterday that his client, now in his 20s, had decided to take legal action after reading Michael F. Egan's similar claims last month.

The 31 year old recently alleged he had been made to perform sex acts on the filmmaker at the age of 15 during a Californian house party after being plied with drugs and alcohol. Holding up a picture of his unidentified client posing with Bryan and Gary at the 2006 premiere of Superman Returns in London's Leicester Square, Jeff - who also represents Michael - said, "He did this to support Mike, he realized he wasn't the only one this happened to."

Kristen Stewart and Rupert SandersRupert Sanders allegedly still has feelings for Kristen Stewart.

The Snow White and the Huntsman director's marriage to model Liberty Ross crumbled when his fling with the 23-year-old actress was exposed in Los Angeles in July 2012, and he is reportedly still pining over the brunette beauty.

"His family is wrecked. Even though he has admitted to everyone in his life that the long-brewing affair was a terrible idea, he still hasn't been able to get over his feelings for Kristen. He fell in love with her a long time before he laid a finger on her, and he's finding it difficult to shake," a source said.

The 42-year-old filmmaker is still friends with Kristen, who split from her long-term boyfriend Robert Pattinson in May 2013 after they struggled to move past her "momentary indiscretion," and hopes they might have a future together. "Rupert, against all better judgement, still holds out hope that he and Kristen can get things going again, but he's completely deluded - she would never put her career on the line like that again," the insider added.

The director's 28-year-old adopted daughter published a letter in the New York Times on Saturday in which she accused her adoptive father, Woody Allen, of sexually assaulting her when she was seven.

Responding to a fan asking if he felt he should apologise to Dylan, Alec - who has daughters Ireland, 18, and Carmen, five months - wrote on Twitter, "What the f&@% is wrong w u that u think we all need to b commenting on this family's personal struggle? You are mistaken if you think there is a place for me, or any outsider, in this family's issue [sic]."

Rose McGowan Slams Ex-Fiance

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies

Rose McGowan and Robert RodriguezRose McGowan has mocked her former fiance Robert Rodriguez.

The 40-year-old actress - who was in a relationship with the Sin City director for two years until 2009 - claimed the filmmaker's planned remake of 1968 futuristic film Barbarella ground to a halt because he turned his back on a huge budget as he "doesn't know" how to work outside of his home state of Texas.

When asked during a Facebook Q&A how close the remake - in which she would have starred in the title role made famous by Jane Fonda - came to being made, she said, "We had $80 million to shoot it in Germany, but he pulled the plug because he doesn't know how to shoot outside of Texas."

The director previously claimed he didn't want to make the movie in Germany because it would mean being away from the five children he has with ex-wife Elizabeth Avellan for too long: "Germany offered us a $70 million budget, which would have been by far the biggest budget I ever would have had for a movie. But I had to shoot it in Germany and post it in Germany. Nothing against Germany, but I have five kids and I was like, 'God, I don't know if we can do that. I don't know if I can be away that long.' It was a real bummer. We had all this artwork and screen tests of what it would look like. It was a really cool, R-rated, sexy version of a Star Wars movie... It was gonna be really great."

Michael Polish and Kate BosworthKate Bosworth and Michael Polish have got married.

The 30-year-old actress and the 42-year-old film director - who got engaged in August 2012 - tied the knot yesterday with an intimate ceremony in front of 50 to 75 of their closest pals at The Ranch at Rock Creek, Montana, according to US Weekly magazine.

The lavish event took place on the mountain top with the beaming bride, who wore a traditional white strapless dress with a full train, arriving in a stunning horse-drawn carriage. Family and friends of the loved-up couple were given Polaroid cameras and were asked to take as many snaps as possible of the romantic day before posting them on a board in the main lodge that said, "Love is..."

Kate - who has been dating the director since 2011 - recently admitted Michael is the "soulmate" she had dreamed of meeting as a child: "I had forgotten my ideal relationship. When I go home to my childhood bedroom I see all the quotes I wrote about meeting a soulmate. Just through growing up and having relationships that didn't work I forgot that side of things and it became about, 'How do we make this work?' When I met Michael all of that magical side of believing in a soulmate returned. I'm really grateful because I believe it's rare. I believe that we're two people who have found their way though difficulties in life, unpacked their baggage and realize it's the same baggage."

Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard

Are Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard the new Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson?

Perhaps in a bid to drum up some buzz (congratulations - you've got it!) for his upcoming film The East, director Zal Batmanglij posted this photo of his two leads on Twitter. Though a friend close to the pair claim that they're just pals, Ellen liked the photo enough to retweet it on her own page, adding the caption, "Canadian tuxedo party," in regards to their matching denim looks. While they could be friends, the co-stars look a little more than just that in the photo. I guess we'll just have to see whether or not they really are an item once the film is out of theaters!

The Great Gatsby director thinks the 26-year-old actress, who is currently in the midst of a 90 day court-ordered stint in rehab after pleading no contest to lying to police about driving during a car crash in California last June, is hugely talented and he hopes she can get her life and career back on track.

"I have known Lindsay since she was very young. She's a talented girl. I pray that she can bring herself back to the place where she came from because she is a talented actress. I feel for her, I really do," the 50-year-old Australian moviemaker said.

The Moulin Rouge director also voiced his support for another tabloid favorite, Kim Kardashian, who he thinks looks "elegant" pregnant: "I met her the other night, about two weeks ago. I had dinner with her and Kanye at a friend's place. She's an extraordinarily elegant woman, pregnant. I was really struck by her grace."
