Jessica Chastain arrives at the opening ceremony of 40th Deauville American Film Festival on September 5, 2014 in Deauville, France.
Jessica Chastain poses in front of her dedicated beach locker room on the Promenade des Planches on September 5, 2014 in Deauville, France.
I don't get how this is a thing, but I want one.
Britney’s “Perfume” music video eerily predicts her own future.
The song’s about Britney’s insecurities of her boyfriend cheating on her. In the Joseph Kahn-directed music video, Brit checks her man’s phone to see a woman named Cindy texting.
Star Magazine claim the girl David Lucado was filmed making out with is a “retired adult performer and exotic dancer” named Cindy.
The tape is shocking,” a source tells the tab. “David is slow-dancing with the woman before sweeping her off her feet and passionately making out with her.”
“What’s worse is that there are rumored to be other videotapes and other women out there as well…She was ready to marry him. Now she’s totally destroyed.”
One person who isn’t destroyed by the breakup is daddy Jamie Spears. “He never liked David from the start,” the source says.
And Whoreney is Horney! She's skippin' the date and hoppin' right in the sack! Slut a bit!
I was there on Wednesday night when she said that and I'm ngl, I'm a little depressed at how low her energy was, I'm cutting her slack with her current situation but I'd been looking forward to that all year and was pretty meh :(
this is so good! digging the vibe and the sound, perfect for fall tbh.
sharing his bone like a sweet bb
animal hoarding at it's best
loving my fucking life
Oh Flynn Rider, how we love thee. This thief-turned-prince stole our hearts (get it, because he was a thief), and Rapunzel’s heart as well with his dashing good looks and heart of gold. While we tend to get distracted by his smoulder or excellent singing voice, we have always noticed his dapper style. It’s a little rugged, but he executes some seriously good style executions like layers and tucking pants into boots. Also, not many men can pull off a satchel, but of course, Flynn does it with ease. So in conclusion, we salute your #menswear success Flynn. Keep up the good work.

Who is your all time favorite Disney prince? And who is your all time favorite Disney princess? Who do you think had the best style?
She was left devastated after missing out on a role in a hit New York City-based drama, which went on to feature Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick.
However in hindsight Lily Collins has admitted that it was probably for the best as it would have meant being 'signed away for six years'.
In an exclusive interview with the October issue of Marie Claire, the 25-year-old actress commented:'I tested for Gossip Girl. I wanted to be in it so badly, I thought at the time it was the end of the world.
'But now I think, 'well I would have got pigeon-holed, have had to move to New York, leave high school and be signed away for six years. I wouldn't have done the films I've done, and everything would have been so different.'
Have a loverly weekend
No porn, nudes, spam, fighting, advertising, dickishness, huge browser slowing comments.

Not even the leg toss could save her! Aviva Drescher has been fired from The Real Housewives of New York City after two seasons on the show, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
Drescher, 45, an author, amputee and married mother of four, will be best remembered for her leg-throwing incident at Manhattan restaurant Le Cirque in the season six finale of RHONY, which aired in July. The surprising confrontation occurred when Drescher's six castmates accused her of lying and faking her illnesses to beg out of several cast trips to Montana, Saratoga Springs, NY, and elsewhere.
"The only thing fake about me," Drescher hissed as she yanked off her prosthetic leg, "is this!" After slamming the prosthesis on the table, Drescher then threw it across the room as partygoers gasped and laughed in shock.
In an interview with Us the day after the episode aired, Drescher said: "I think me getting angry and throwing my leg on the table was really funny and crazy. I get a hoot out of it. But of course, I was definitely brought to the end of my rope, or the end of my leg so to speak."
Earlier in the season, Drescher came to near-blows with costar Carole Radziwill in an ongoing feud — known as "bookgate" about the authorship of their respective books; The Vassar grad's randy father, 76-year-old George Teichner, also made waves when he married girlfriend Dana, who is over 50 years his junior.
The seasons 5 and 6 Housewife is the first confirmed cast member of Bravo's Manhattan franchise to be booted off the show. Still remaining are Ramona Singer (RHONY's longest-standing cast member), Sonja Morgan, Kristen Taekman, Heather Thomson, and Carole Radziwill.
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was a main cast member from seasons 1 through 5, but returned only as a recurring storyline in the sixth season.
Page Six mentioned Drescher's departure in a longer item about supermodel Helena Christensen, who was invited but declined to join the season 7 cast of RHONY. Us can also confirm that Christensen had been in the running.
this bitch doesn't have a leg to stand on without housewives. she's thrown in the leg. i'll miss your sense of style & your crazy, delusional psychopathic behaviour avivs. get rid of kristen & carole next!
"The Grand Sausage Pizza" is the name of the fictional porn film created by YouTube comedy channel Nacho Punch in the style of Wes Anderson. That means the affectless voice-over, the dorky mustached hero, the clever title cards and other identifying features of the Anderson oeuvre.
lol the ending
Do you still have a Coupling-shaped hole in your life? Do you wish It’s Always Sunny gave you a few more feeling-type emotions? Do you love awful humans and root for them to fall in love? Then you should be watching You’re the Worst. Because it’s the best.
With two episodes left this season, and last night’s episode particularly excellent, you have the perfect amount of time to binge watch over the weekend and catch up. Here’s why.
6. Sexy sex and lots of doing it.
They do a lot of sex, guys. Downtownsies on boys, downtownsies on girls, aborted attempts at threesomes, it has everything. And everyone on the show has a healthy enjoyment of and relationship with sex. It’s sad that this is relatively revolutionary.
4. Aya Cash is human perfection.
As Gretchen, Aya Cash is perfection. She’s snarky and she’s mean and she’s strong and weak and flawed and amazing. She’s selfish and self-aware and self-possessed and she cares. She hates how much she cares, she hides how much she cares, but she does. She nails it. Aya Cash should be and if there is a God she will be a massive star.
1. Against all logic, you really root for Gretchen and Jimmy.
This show could have been a horrible exercise in the cliche-est of cliches—the two commitmentphobes desperately trying to avoid commitment as they sink deeper into it. And, while technically that is exactly what is happening, the show is subverting its own premise and completely demolishing the pathetic attempts that have come before it. You care about these two messes. You want them to be together. You should not, but you do. It’s hard to create characters who are mean, cruel, the worst, and make you care about them. But Stephen Falk? Sir, you have done it. Congratulations.
Rest at source.
Someone has spat saliva in your vagina/anus, ONTD?
Chris Evans talks about what he learned as first-time director on the indie film “Before We Go” at the Variety Studio in Toronto.
let the thirst begin
Radiohead fans got a surprise this week when the band’s PolyFauna app—released in February, using music and visuals from their 2011 album The King of Limbs—was updated to offer the first new music from the band in three years.
The new tunes come via an update to the app that went out on Monday. For the most part the new music is just an atmospheric assemblage of beats and singing, but could signal where the band is headed musically (although we hope that it’ll feature some clearer vocals and more lyrics). Radiohead are reportedly starting work on their ninth studio album, and—according to an interview with multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood—planned to begin work at the end of summer.
Radiohead’s new sounds follow a series of posts to Tumblr by frontman Thom Yorke and longtime collaborator Stanley Donwood. Those two, along with producer Nigel Godrich and digital arts studio Universal Everything, created the interactive worlds in the app (available for iOS and Android). Each of the worlds features abstract landscapes and ambient music that alter depending on the way the user tilts their device.
Radiohead is far from the first band to release their own app. PolyFauna echoes in many ways Bjork’s Biophilia app from 2011, but it also follows the release of apps from Lady Gaga and One Direction amongst others. Given the band’s previous experiments with the internet—remember the pay-what-you-want experiment for In Rainbows?—we can only hope that this is the first of many new online experiments from Radiohead over the next few months.

As you may have heard, Arcade Fire covered a whole bunch of covers during their world tour in support of Reflektor. By our count, the band paid homage to at least 35 different artists, from legends like Prince, Neil Young, and The Rolling Stones to contemporaries such as Feist, Wolf Parade, and Pixies. Along the way, they were joined by some special guests, including David Byrne, Mavis Staples, Marky Ramone, and Buster Poindexter himself, New York Dolls’ David Johansen.
Hopefully Arcade Fire eventually releases a live album chronicling their epic Reflektor tour, but in the meantime, we went ahead and compiled recordings of these various covers for a bootleg live album. Do note that the sound quality isn’t always the best.

Has anyone got any nice stories from their concert?
Kei Nishikori of Japan fought off the heat and top-ranked Novak Djokovic to become the first Asian man to reach a Grand Slam final at the U.S. Open Saturday.
Nishikori, seeded 10th, upset the 2011 U.S. Open champion from Serbia 6-4, 1-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-3 in 2 hours and 51 minutes.
"It's just amazing, amazing feeling to beat the No. 1 player," said Nishikori in an on-court interview shortly after breaking Djokovic for the fifth time to close out the match.
In steamy conditions on Arthur Ashe Stadium, the 24-year-old Nishikori played bolder, more opportunistic tennis in his first Grand Slam semifinal.
In the first set, he dictated play from the backcourt and returned assertively while Djokovic, who was contesting his 24th semifinal, seemed oddly passive.
Djokovic, the reigning Wimbledon champion and seeking a fifth consecutive U.S. Open final, reasserted himself in the second set with more aggressive play as Nishikori, who spent more than 8½ hours on court in his last two matches, appeared to labor in the sticky heat.
But in the third set, Nishikori refused to wilt and despite blowing a chance to serve it out at 5-4 – including a double fault on break point – he stunned the flagging Djokovic to win the third in a tiebreaker and then cruised through the final set.
Nishikori, who left Japan at 13 to train at the IMG/Bollettieri Academy, this year hired 1989 French Open champion Michael Chang of the USA as a coach along with Dante Bottini.
"He's been helping me a lot, him and Dante communicate a lot," Nishikori said of Chang. "That's why I'm here."
The second men's semifinal between No. 2 Roger Federer of Switzerland and No. 14 seed Marin Cilic of Croatia was scheduled for later Saturday. Federer lost to Cilic 3-6 4-6 4-6.
I'm so happy for him :')
Not everything about The Toronto International Film Festival is all glitz and glamour. And, not every person behind the cameras flashing before the pretty faces are well-intentioned. For every street style photographer and blogger there's a paparazzi member — sometimes two — with the gall to taunt the attendees.
Earlier on Friday, September 5, Cara Delevingne fell victim to the rancorous paparazzi machine. Not many details are known outside of Delevingne's seven-tweet long account.
"I am currently hiding in a public bathroom because of guess who...," she tweeted around 4:30 p.m. "If you guessed paparazzi you were right!!" she continued. "Thanks for making me feel like a caged animal once again. You won!" Apparently, a member of the paparazzi started to "stroke his ass" at the model.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time Delevingne has publicly shamed the paparazzi. Back in April 2014, the model likened them to "assassins with [their] telescope lenses, hiding in bushes or whatever they can find." Around 5 p.m., the model shared that she was able to leave the public restroom with the help of two kindly festival volunteers.
This, on top of the recent celebrity nudes hack, does not kick September off on a high note in terms of privacy and harassment. It has, however, shed light on the importance of public restrooms.
Here's something you don't hear every day. Willow Smith's latest song is a cover of King Krule's "Easy Easy." She doesn't alter the original melody, but her soft, soothing vocals serve as stark contrast to Krule's harsher tones. Willow, now 13, once again shows her growth and eclectic musical taste.
The timing of the release couldn't be better for Krule, who announced a multimedia exhibition called Inner City Ooz with his brother Mistr Gone. It will take place from September 5 - 27 at Display Gallery in London.
A limited-edition zine designed by Mistr Gone & King Krule and produced by Display Gallery will accompany the exhibition. It will feature poetry, unseen photos and personal essays by the artists.
Listen to the original "Easy Easy", below:
I don't know what it is about young girls named Emily, but they seem to have a penchant for making horror films. First came 12-year-old Emily Hagins, who directed the zombie movie Pathogen, and then came 13-year-old Emily DiPrimio, who dreamed of making an 80s-style slasher called Carver.
If that project sounds familiar to you, it's probably because we covered it here on Dread last September, when the Kickstarter campaign was launched for the film. Almost exactly one year later, to the day, the trailer for the successfully funded slasher has arrived, and we invite you to check it out below!
Written and directed by both Emily and her father, Ron, Carver is about a group of teenagers who are haunted by a despicable act they committed on Halloween when they were younger. Their actions caused the deaths of three innocent people. Now, on the anniversary of those deaths, an ominous calling card in the form of a carved pumpkin has been placed at each of their homes. Someone is out for revenge. The question is... who?
Last year the Carver Kickstarter campaign far surpassed its $25,000 goal, over 500 backers raising $31,900 to help make Emily's dream a reality. So pat yourself on the back, those who donated, because this film would not exist without you!
Art and reality merged for James Franco at the 2014 Venice Film Festival on Friday when the actor walked a real red carpet at a real premiere for a real movie he really directed and starred in -- but did so in character, sporting a fake mustache, real shaved head and a fake head tattoo of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift.
Inside the theater and before accepting the festival's real Glory to the Filmmaker 2014 prize, Franco got a little work done, shooting an award-show scene for the upcoming movie "Zeroville." A scene also set at the Venice Film Festival. The 1977 Venice Film Festival.
In "Zeroville," Franco portrays a film obsessive "so enamored with movies that they become religion to him," he explained to the Associated Press. The adaptation of the Steve Erickson novel follows the character Vikar -- that guy with the stars of "A Place in the Sun" inked on his noggin -- on his journey through 1970s and '80s Hollywood.
