Elle Fanning lost a franchise role because she 'didn't have enough IG followers'
Elle Fanning has been working as an actress since she was a little kid. She?s 25 years old now, and her first acting credit came in 2001. So, she?s already had a twenty-plus year career in film and television. But that?s not enough for some producers and studios, because they?re mad that Elle Fanning is not some nepo baby who lives and dies by her Instagram follower count. Elle spoke to the Happy Sad Confused podcast this week about losing out of major roles because she didn?t have a big enough social media presence.

Whether she feels pressure to join big studio franchises: Fanning was asked if there is pressure on her career to join big studio franchises in order to stay ?relevant? as an actor. ?I don?t feel that [pressure]. I don?t,? Fanning said, while also acknowledging that joining the likes of Marvel, ?Star Wars? or DC ?does something? for other actors? careers. ?But you also don?t know if they?re going to work sometimes, which is scary.?

Fanning confirmed that she has auditioned for at least one big franchise movie. ?I did try out for?I?m not going to say what it was, but I didn?t get a part once for something big because ? it might not have just been this reason, but this was the feedback that I heard ? was because I didn?t have enough Instagram followers at the time. So that was a little like?I firmly don?t believe in not getting a part [for that]. It was for a bigger thing, a franchise thing.?

She has never gotten far in the audition process for those franchise projects: ?I would never say no to those things, but I would have to have a meeting and really talk to see what it is,? Fanning added about joining a franchise. ?I didn?t have to go through what Nick [Hoult] did?they made him try the [Batman] suit on. You need a balance. If you want to do your indie work, especially in producing now?[having a big franchise] does make you breathe better.?

As Variety points out, Elle has around 7 million followers on Instagram. Those aren?t Kardashian-Jenner numbers, obviously, but completely respectable. What?s weird is that studios especially Disney/Marvel really persuade their stars to join social media to promote their projects and engage with fans. Instead of saying ?wow, Elle already has a social media presence and a follower base we can build on,? they reject her because she?s not chronically online or trying to be an influencer. In any case, I?m glad she?s not worked up over it and I?m glad she?s happy with her already-successful career. It would be great if someone in charge had some imagination and realized that Elle has more acting range than all of the ladies with 50 million followers.

Taylor Swift & Matt Healy had a date night in NYC, they kissed & held hands

Taylor Swift & Matt Healy had a date night in NYC, they kissed & held hands
Taylor Swift and Matt(y) Healy are still happening, much to the chagrin of Taylor?s fanbase. I?m not entirely sure what the worst part is for the Snake Fam is it that Taylor probably cheated on and dumped Joe Alwyn? Is that Taylor kind of sh-t talked Joe and her people made it sound like Taylor had to get out of a six-year relationship because Joe wasn?t comfortable with her fame? Is it that Taylor likely overlapped the start of her thing with Healy and the end of her relationship with Joe? Or is that Matt Healy seems like a rude, racist, bigoted mess? All of the above? Well, Taylor is still doing this boyfriend rollout, regardless of what her fans think. The Sun (a British tabloid) broke the Swealy story, then the first official appearances were in Nashville last weekend. Now their love tour has moved to New York:

Do you really wanna know where she was on ? May 11? Taylor Swift and Matty Healy ? who sparked romance rumors earlier this month ? were spotted ?kissing? on Thursday at Casa Cipriani in New York City, where ?they sat next to each other at a banquette in the lounge,? an eyewitness tells Page Six.

The spy further told us that neither of them had ordered any food while they were ?cuddling and kissing.?

Nonetheless, they weren?t completely on their own as Jack Antonoff sat with them, and ?security was around them.?

For their outing, the ?Anti-Hero? singer sported a green and yellow dress with velvet Mary Janes. She completed the look with her staple red lipstick while she sipped on her drink.

Healy, on the other hand, seemingly wore a suit to their date. Shortly after being spotted by our eyewitness, they left Cipriani ?holding hands? while being covered by an umbrella to maintain their privacy.

On May 3, sources told The Sun that the pair had been dating for less than two months but were already ?madly in love.?

[From Page Six]

The London-to-Nashville-to-New York tour is giving me a flashback to the Tiddles Worldwide Love Tour in 2016. I?m saying that as a compliment I adored the worldwide Tiddles Tour. They were having so much fun, they were enjoying the game so much. Maybe that?s the silver lining for the Snake Fam? This has a love-drunk Tiddles feel to it, something which is fun and exciting for several months and then burns out quickly. It will be curious to see how often Healy joins her while she?s on tour. The 1975?s summer tour starts in Europe in early June, so my guess is that they?re probably going to spend the next two weeks together or so and then they might be apart for much of the summer. We?ll see.

Here are the photos from their date night. Jack Antonoff is going to end up getting canceled by the Snake Fam too if he?s not careful.

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck kissed at 'The Mother' premiere in LA

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck kissed at 'The Mother' premiere in LA
I?ll just put this out there at the top: I?m not worried about Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck?s marriage, actually. I think, as a couple, they?re fine. He adores her, she worships him. They?re two 50-something divorcees who know how much give and take there is in a marriage and what they need to do to look after each other. Now, I am slightly concerned about some other things! I?m concerned that J.Lo?s glam squad is dysfunctional and I?m concerned that Ben is going to lose his mind on a paparazzo at some point.

These are photos from last night?s LA premiere of The Mother, J.Lo?s new Netflix film. She was in New York most of last week doing promotion for this movie and she was moving around solo, with no Ben (he stayed in LA). I?m glad that Ben came out to her premiere, because I think that means a lot to her, that Ben will come out to her events too. Now, most of the photos of Ben from the red carpet are just of him trying to kiss Jennifer or talk to her he wasn?t very interested in posing. Still, I?m not ?worried? about them.

Fashion notes: Jennifer wore a custom Brunello Cucinelli ensemble. Her body is crazy but I do feel like we?ve seen too much of her abs lately. Like? it?s fine to just wear a simple blouse, J.Lo! If I had her abs, I would probably show them off as well.

Meanwhile, this Bennifer video has been going viral they were out grabbing coffee or shopping in LA this week and Ben was very annoyed at the paparazzi trailing them. The car-door slam was, in my opinion, not about J.Lo, it was about the paps.

That man look STRESSED

Rihanna's son's name has finally been revealed: RZA Athelston Mayers

Rihanna's son's name has finally been revealed: RZA Athelston Mayers
Did anyone else sort of forget that we still didn?t know the name of Rihanna?s son? We finally got to see his face on the cover of British Vogue several months ago, but Rihanna had already posted some videos and photos of the baby before the magazine came out, because she was trying to dilute the value of some paparazzi pics. Throughout all of those dramas, we still didn?t know the kid?s name! Well, the Daily Mail got their hands on the baby?s birth certificate and drumroll please?

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky kept their sons name a secret for a year, but the moniker has finally been revealed. The Daily Mail shared a copy of the babys birth certificate, which shows his full name is RZA Athelston Mayers. He appears to be named after Wu-Tang Clan member RZA (whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs), pronounced Rizza. The baby shares his middle name, Athelston, with dad Rocky. The birth certificate also confirms RZAs date of birth was May 13, 2022.

As the tabloid noted, Rihanna had hinted at the babys name on April 5, where she was spotted carrying little RZA while wearing a Wu-Tang Clan shirt. Shed also been photographed in August 2022 wearing a RZA tee.

[From Yahoo]

I actually like the name ?Rizza? but I?m lukewarm on using an acronym for a kid?s name. Still, I kind of agree that the kid looks like a Rizza/RZA. I also wonder if there was more connections than just ?Rihanna liked the name RZA.? Rihanna is Robyn she probably wanted an R name. Maybe the name stands for something else entirely. Who knows. I wonder what she?ll name the second kid? Fingers crossed for ODB (whose first name is actually Russell, another R name).
