Victoria Beckham Fashion Consultant/Cameo in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Film?



Former Spice Girl and David Beckham‘s spouse Victoria Beckham is being asked to contribute to the upcoming ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ film, according to industry sources.  The 39-year old mother of four has long been viewed as a fashion icon and previously offered her creative input for Range Rover‘s hit SUV the Evoque, among other creative endeavors.

Sources say that the heads at Universal Studios have reached out to Posh Spice as they hope this will lead to more ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ spinoffs including in fashion and music.  If you’ll recall, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ is a 2011 erotic novel by British author E.L. James that took the literary world by storm by selling 70 million novels in 37 countries worldwide.  Critics of the novel have derided it by saying the writing is generally poor and equating it to “mommy porn”, but its fans don’t seem to care as they eagerly await the film adaptation.

Rumors have been rampant as to the casting of the film’s main characters, 21-year old ingenue Anastasia “Ana” Steele and her domineering paramour, the 27-year old wealthy and successful entrepreneur Christian Grey.  The novel itself explores the intricacies of the couple’s BDSM relationship in great detail and has been credited for tapping into a wellspring of female sexuality as few novels have before. Casting rumors currently have Michael Fassbender as the frontrunner to play Grey and ‘Twilight‘ alum Ashley Greene to play Ana Steele, but nothing has been finalized.

Besides Victoria, Universal is also reaching out to traditional fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabanna, Diane von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, and others to work on the film. No word yet on if Victoria has accepted the gig, but we’ll keep you posted.

Penelope Cruz and Kate Middleton Deliver Babies on the Same Day!

While the world was busy fretting over the birth of Prince George Alexander Louis to Kate Middleton and Prince William in Britain, Oscar winning duo Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem welcomed a child of their own July 22 in Madrid, Spain.  39-year old Cruz gave birth to a daughter, the couple’s second child after the 2011 birth of son Leonardo Encinas, at Ruber International Hospital after being admitted on Monday.

While it’s no doubt that Cruz and Bardem’s child will receive attention merely because of who her parents are, Cruz voiced her desire to keep her kids out of the limelight by saying “I want my son and my kids – if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible.”  This may be easier said than done, but the couple are fiercely private and seem to shun the spotlight when not working on film projects.

Cruz surely wants to avoid being under the kind of microscope she faced during her three year relationship with Tom Cruise from 2001 to 2004.  Bardem grew up in a family of actors and filmmakers and took up the craft after trying his hand at being a painter in his youth so he’s already aware of the pitfalls of fame.  The couple, who last worked together in Woody Allen‘s ‘Vicky Christina Barcelona‘, will be appearing together again in the hotly anticipated Ridley Scott directed and Cormac McCarthy scripted ‘The Counselor‘ alongside such talent as Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, and Cameron Diaz.

Ridley Scott’s Latest Film ‘The Counselor’, Starring Brad Pitt, Releases Trailer



Brad Pitt and ‘Prometheus‘ director Ridley Scott have just released a trailer for the star-laden film ‘The Counselor‘.  Besides Mr. Pitt, the film features an All-Star ensemble cast including Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, John Leguizamo, and Goran Visnjic.  If that’s not enough for you, the movie is based on an original script from best-selling author Cormac McCarthy, whose last film ‘No Country for Old Men‘ was up for and won multiple Oscars.

It seems that the movie deals with a lawyer, played by Fassbender, who becomes involved with the Mexican drug cartels.  In the trailer Pitt offers the classic line that “You may think there are things these people are simply incapable of – there are not.”

The film is set for an October 25th U.K. premiere, right around the beginning of Oscar season.

Here’s the first trailer as promised:

Personally, the Movie Don can’t wait for this one as McCarthy is an exemplary writer and Ridley Scott’s resume, ‘Blade Runner‘, ‘Alien‘, ‘Gladiator‘, ‘Thelma & Louise‘, etc., really needs no introduction.
