Wonka looks as sweet as chocolate
July 11th, 2023 under Hugh Grant, Movies, Timothée Chalamet. [ Comments: none ]

I grew up watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and I adored Gene Wilder in the lead role.

So anytime I hear that they are doing another version, I expect Willy Wonka to live up to the charisma and magic that Wilder had in the role. Johnny Depp didn’t do it. And I don’t think Timothée Chalamet will either. He does not have that “It Factor” that makes him special for a role like this, at least not in this trailer.

While I don’t see him as the chocolate genius, I can’t wait to see this movie on December 15th. It feels like a fantasy adventure that is perfect for Christmastime, like The Greatest Showman or Mary Poppins.

So it will be fun to watch! That, and let’s be real, we are all going to see Hugh Grant dancing as an Oompa Loompa. We need more of him ASAP!


James Corden does a Hugh Grant impression for Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant and Chris Pine were guests on The Late Late Show yesterday to promote their movie Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, and James Corden asked them to play Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts. That is where they have to answer a question or eat something gross.

The questions were lame. The food was disgusting, as usual. But there was one moment that made me laugh. That is when Pine told Corden to either do his Hugh Grant impression for Hugh Grant or eat a bull penis.

What to do? What to do? Corden did his best, Grant, and Grant rightfully hated every second of it.

I am sure that people think he deserved it after his interview on Oscar’s Red Carpet with Ashley Graham at the Oscars, but I don’t he did. That was beyond cruel.


Is Drew Barrymore mad at Hugh Grant?

Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore starred in the movie Music and Lyrics together, and they sang a duet. That should sound like music to your ears, but Grant says it wasn’t. During a recent interview with Wired’s Web’s Most Searched, he said her “singing is just horrendous. I mean, I’ve heard dogs bark better than she sings.”

How did Barrymore react to him saying that? First, she recorded a video of herself singing their song, Way Back Into Love. Then, she talked about it on The Drew Barrymore Show on Friday.

“If you know Hugh, that is his way of loving you,” the actress said. “You think you are getting this charming movie star, and what you get is grumpy Hugh. And then you fall in love with grumpy Hugh. When he says that, I’m telling you like he is being absolutely funny. He doesn’t mean one negative thing about it.”

In other words, he is British. And we are just not used to it. We just think he is the man he plays in all of those Rom-Coms. But he isn’t.

Barrymore ended her thoughts about her co-star with, “He is a hilarious, good human being.” And if she is saying that, she means it. I think.


Drew Barrymore sings for Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant recently said during Wired’s Web’s Most Searched that his Music and Lyrics co-star, Drew Barrymore’s “singing is just horrendous. I mean, I’ve heard dogs bark better than she sings.”

Well, word got back to the actress, and she had a response for him. She recorded herself singing their duet Way Back Into Love for him.

You know what, it wasn’t as bad as he said. She wouldn’t move on to the next round on American Idol. But my cat didn’t cry in pain like she does when I sing,

What did you think? Besides that, she is so cute and doesn’t let anyone get her down.


Hugh Grant says that Drew Barrymore’s ‘singing is horrendous’
March 15th, 2023 under Drew Barrymore, Hugh Grant. [ Comments: none ]

Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant starred in 2007’s Music and Lyrics, and both actors sang in the movie.

Recently when Grant was answering Wired’s Web’s Most Searched Questions, someone asked if that was him singing. He said that it was and that he was “autotuned beyond belief.”

Then Grant took back that statement, “Actually, that is not true. I am autotuned a bit, but not as much as some.” Then explained that Barrymore’s “singing is just horrendous. I mean, I’ve heard dogs bark better than she sings.”

However, he did say something positive about his co-star, “Once they tuned her up. She sounded way better than me because she’s got heart and voice and Rock’n’Roll.”

This has not been a good week for Grant and his mouth. First, he was trashed for a bad interview he had with Ashley Graham on the Oscars’ champagne carpet on Sunday. Where is Divine Brown when you need her?

And talking about divine. Wouldn’t it be divine if Grant was a guest on The Drew Barrymore Show and she talks to him about this? It would be even better if she sang for him without autotune!
