Emilia Clarke said no to 'Fifty Shades' because she didn't want to do more nudity
The Emmy nominations will be coming out in July, but I guess we?re probably in the ?voting? part of the process, which explains why the Hollywood Reporter did one of their ?roundtable? discussions with television?s leading ladies. Included in this year?s Emmy roundtable: Emilia Clarke, Christine Baranski, Michelle Williams, Danai Gurira, Patricia Arquette and Niecy Nash. The entire piece is a good read full of interesting little stories and conversations, and as always, it felt like the women relish being able to sit down and talk to each other and commiserate about what?s happening in their industry. There were a few notable moments which I wanted to excerpt:

Patricia Arquette on the pressure to age a certain way: ?I was lucky enough to have success when I was young, and a lot of that was being an ingenue. And then as I was getting older, there was still this pressure to look a certain way. I had an argument with one of the producers on Medium, who told me I should lose weight. I was like, This lady is a mother, shes married, shes got three kids. No. But theres that expectation of being beautiful, of looking a certain way. Like, OK, you could be 40, but youve got to be a 40 who looks 30. So, when I started to work on Escape at Dannemora and then again with The Act, I definitely felt some pushback. [My people were scared] that Id lose work. And in fairness, theyll have those conversations. What does she look like now? Why dont you send us a picture of what she looks like right now?

Christine Baranski on who she does not want to play: ?Dont want to play a cranky old lady, dont want to play a bitch ? or a powerful woman who, because shes powerful, is a bitch. You know, all the stereotypes about older women. Nope.

Niecy Nash on who she doesn?t want to play: ?I dont want to be a sassy black anything. I dont want to be a sassy black mama, a sassy black neighbor or a sassy black friend. There are so many more notes to be played. And listen, broken is a delicious note to play on camera.

Emilia Clarke on saying no to Fifty Shades of Grey: ?Well, Sam [Taylor-Johnson, the director] is a magician. I love her, and I thought her vision was beautiful. But the last time that I was naked on camera on [Game of Thrones] was a long time ago, and yet it is the only question that I ever get asked because I am a woman. And its annoying as hell and Im sick and tired of it because I did it for the character ? I didnt do it so some guy could check out my t-ts, for Gods sake. So, that coming up, I was like, I cant. I did a minimal amount and Im pigeonholed for life, so me saying yes to that, where the entire thing is about sensuality and sex and being naked and all of that stuff, I was just like, No way am I going to voluntarily walk into that situation and then never be able to look someone in the eye and be like, No, you cant keep asking me this question.

I honestly forgot that Emilia was up for the role in Fifty Shades. She would have been an okay Anastasia, but having seen Dakota Johnson in the role? Dakota is totally fine too. The franchise?s problems were, in no particular order, Jamie Dornan being miscast and wooden, the sh-tty source material and EL James insisting on terrible things being included in the films. But yes, I can also see how Emilia would have been like ?no thank you? to a role which would have meant so much nudity and sexual situations. Also: the part with Patricia Arquette talking about how her agent and manager are asked about what she looks like now? wow, that?s fking awful.

?Aladdin' was a big box office success, made $80 million in its first 3-day opening

?Aladdin' was a big box office success, made $80 million in its first 3-day opening
I kept waiting for all of the hot takes about how Aladdin was going to be racist trash, but it looks like? Disney sort of pulled it off? Maybe those takes were out there and I just didn?t see them. I did see several complimentary reviews of Aladdin, which were basically like ?of course this isn?t the best movie ever, but it?s perfectly enjoyable.? The Rotten Tomatoes score for Aladdin was only 57% on opening weekend, but as Disney has shown repeatedly, these kinds of kids? films are absolutely critic-proof. And as such, Aladdin made a significant haul on its three-day opening weekend:

While the box offices holiday weekend is not yet over, Aladdin is already posting big earnings in its three-day weekend run. The Disney live-action title has grossed $86.1 million in its release so far, already out-pacing earlier estimates that it would gross $80 million for the entire Memorial Day holiday. Aladdin is now on pace for a $100 million plus four-day bow.

Guy Ritchie directed Aladdin, which stars Will Smith as the Genie and Mena Massoud as the titular hero, a charming street rat who masquerades as a prince to win the affections of Princess Jasmine, played by Naomi Scott. The movie musical, produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirichs Rideback, opened wide in 4,400 locations. The re-hashing of the studios 1992 animation has received a mixed response from critics, with a 57 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but has fared far better with audiences, earning a A CinemaScore.

You know who really needed this win? Guy Ritchie. It would be interesting if Ritchie just fully gave up on his gangster films and just became the director of Disney spectacles and family-friendly action movies. Anyway, I guess I?m happy for everyone involved. I still think it?s sort of dumb to do all of these live-action remakes of beloved Disney animated films, but every single one they?ve done thus far has been a huge financial success. The Lion King is next, right? And Beyonce is involved in that one. Soyeah? it will be a huge success too.
