Paul Giamatti takes his Golden Globe for pizza
January 10th, 2024 under Movie Star Gossip. [ Comments: none ]

On Sunday, Paul Giamatti won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his performance in The Holdovers.

After his win, he took his statuette to In-N-Out. And the food tour didn’t stop there. They also visited the winning actor’s favorite restaurant, Frank Pepe Pizzeria, in New Haven.

I wonder where they will go to next? Because so far, they have eaten better than I have this week, and I am living vicariously through them.

UPDATE: I just realized this photo was photoshooped. But I am too lazy to take down the post. So deal.


Celeb Life: What Do They Do All Day?
March 24th, 2023 under Movie Star Gossip. [ Comments: none ]

In between ‘projects’ and red carpet appearances, what do celebrities do all day? Well, here are some of the big answers to that question. Most celebrities put in a few weeks or months of hard work every year, and then rest and do whatever they want. This is the biggest benefit of fame and fortune; leisure time.

All Fun And Games

Probably the best part of being a celebrity is that you do not have all that much to do every day. Actors and singers will have their busy periods recording their talents and promoting their latest work, but that is about it. The rest of the time celebrities are ladies and gentlemen of leisure and do not have any big daily commitments outside of family life.

They fill in the downtime in many of the same ways as the average person, but often in much more luxurious surroundings and possibly being waited on by personal assistants and staff. Keeping themselves entertained is their full-time occupation. Scrolling on social media and catching up on the latest Netflix series is the order of the day.

For a little bit of fun with their disposable income, many celebs enjoy a little wager on a sports event or playing online casino games. Jackpot Casino spoils them a little with plenty of free spins and in-depth reviews of the latest slot games. These help to keep celebs and anyone else occupied during downtime with the possibility of a little profit.

Keeping Up Appearances

Looks are important in celebrity life. Many of them are simply known for being attractive and do not seem to do much else other than look pretty in photographs standing on the red carpet of movie premieres. Maintaining their appearance is a daily chore for most celebs, and this means skin care, physical fitness, and fashion.

The daily routine of the average celebrity involves a gym session. Personal trainers are one of the most popular celebrity accessories and are pretty much a requirement for staying on top of the A-list, B-list, or C-list. It does take work to be a celebrity, but it is only an hour or two of cardio and weight training. This should be balanced with a healthy diet too, and those that can afford it use a professional chef and nutritionist to do some of the hard work for them.

Most celebs can finish off their workday in the early afternoon with some retail therapy and perhaps a light lunch at an equally fashionable restaurant that is somewhere to be seen. Red carpet appearances require plenty of planning, fashion-wise. Getting the right outfit and accessories can take days, with repeated visits to the best boutiques and jewelry stores.

The Hustle Is Real

Most celebs will need to do a little hustling day to day so they stay in the loop and line up their next professional commitments. If they are movie stars or musicians, this should take care of itself to some extent. Their agents, studios, and producers will have plans for them to choose from, and once they give the go-ahead their staff will spring into action and start making the arrangements for the future.

Celebrities and stars cannot afford to rest on their laurels for too long. The average professional life of a singer, actor, or someone who is somehow famous for being famous is not a long one. They need to squeeze as much high-value work as possible into just a few years of working life. If they put the hours in they may never have to work again after the fickle spotlight of fame moves from them to the next big thing.

Hustling for the next role, album, or appearance can involve lots of luxury lunch meetings, which is definitely a perk of the ‘job’ of being a celebrity. Agents and accountants can only do so much, sooner or later the celebs themselves need to appear in the flesh to sign on the dotted line and agree to the fee.

Chasing The Sun

It is not all work, work, work. Sometimes celebs need a little vay-cay to help ease the pain of all those lunch meetings and contract signings. Choosing their next vacation destination probably takes up an hour or two of their time. They are never far from the next jaunt on a private plane to an exclusive resort. If they can get a deal through their endorsement, even better. Even celebrities need to save money when they can.

The Caribbean islands, the Mediterranean, and the islands of French Polynesia are two of the most popular celeb destinations that we know about. There are completely private and exclusive islands and villas out there that we the public do not have access to or even have knowledge of. Where they go will often depend on the time of year. The summer months are perfect for a European grand tour, though Monaco, Saint Tropez, and exclusive islands in the Med like Capri.

For a winter break, they have to chase the sun to the Southern Hemisphere or the distant Pacific islands unless they fancy skiing or snowboarding. Look to Aspen in Colorado or the Alps in Europe to find celebs on a winter ski vacation between October and April. They have lots of options and money is often not an issue. With the right endorsement and social media tie-in, they can pretty much vay-cay for free.

Staying On Top Of The Socials

The world has changed massively in the last decade, and the celebrity world is no different. They used to be able to retreat to their homes and stay out of the spotlight, but that doesn’t make good business sense anymore. The most successful celebrities need to stay accessible to maintain their fame. Every top-tier celeb, and all the bottom-tier ones too, need to stay on top of their socials to keep in the public consciousness and to promote products.

Follower counts, engagements, and likes are all big business these days. Even the most average celebrity who does not seem to do anything in particular can have a thriving career if they can keep their follower count up on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. With a huge reach to millions of consumers across the world, the biggest corporations and agencies will come to them for endorsements and paid ‘#ads’.

Every celeb, from the highest paid Hollywood stars to reality television Z-listers need to keep engaged online and make sure they are providing their followers and fans with content every day, especially photos on the Instagram feed. The big stars can afford to pay someone to do this for them, and their social media posts are often planned weeks in advance. The smaller celebs take on this responsibility themselves and try to turn posts into profits.

Being a celebrity isn’t easy, but it is not really that hard either. Getting there is the most difficult part but once someone has a little bit of fame, fortune will naturally follow. Their day to day responsibilities may seem like they are focused on themselves rather than producing a product, but celebrities are the product. They have to keep themselves looking good and appearing at the right spots to stay relevant while they can, and cash in on their following and notoriety. It is hard work, but there are much harder jobs out there.


Michael Shannon doesn’t need a change purse when he has his nose
February 6th, 2018 under Movie Star Gossip. [ Comments: none ]

We know that Michael Shannon can act, but he has another secret talent and he demonstrated it to Vanity Fair. He can stick $2.10 worth of change up his nostrils. His parents must be so proud that he can do that.

I do not know how he does because the smell alone would have me running to the bathroom. Why do coins stink so much? That and being a woman, I would not want to do anything that could make my nose bigger.

What do you think of his secret talent?


John Cleese’s diss towards Piers Morgan is worthy of the Holy Grail!
June 5th, 2015 under Movie Star Gossip, Piers Morgan. [ Comments: 1 ]

John Cleese and Piers Morgan ate at the same restaurant in NYC and the two men didn’t speak even though there tables were next to each other. Piers being the baby that he is, wrote an article in Daily Mail about how Cleese ignored him. Word got back to the star of Monty Python and he Tweeted his explanation of the situation. He said, “Piers Morgan writes that I didn’t recognise him in a restaurant in New York.I did.I just didn’t want to speak to someone I truly detest.” He isn’t the only one, so that is why we all loved what he Tweeted.
The feud continued on, but Piers’ responses are lamer than he is; so they are not worth posting. What is worth posting is Cleese’s final Tweet about it, “I see my tweet about Piers M is ‘favourited’ by 15,000 JC twits.Clearly I must insult the slimy,attention-seeking little prole more often.” All I have to say to that, is please do.


Who knew that Jessica Chastain was Little Orphan Annie all grown up?
September 10th, 2014 under Jessica Chastain, Movie Star Gossip. [ Comments: none ]

Jessica Chastain was on Today today and she wore a little red dress. Between her red hair with that dress holding those purrfect little kittens, I couldn’t help but notice how much she looks like the adult version of Little Orphan Annie. Seriously, I bet your bottom dollar you wouldn’t be surprised if she broke out into Tomorrow right then and there? Maybe far away or maybe real bear by, she really is Daddy Warbucks little girl? The one thing we do know for sure is that she is fully dressed with that big bright smile!
