Beyonce's Pregnancy Affects 'A Star Is Born' Start Date

Beyonce's Pregnancy Affects 'A Star Is Born' Start Date

Beyonce‘s surprise pregnancy announcement at the 2011 MTV VMAs has affected her upcoming film project A Star Is Born.

Warner Bros. was hoping to start production on the film in February 2012, but these plans will have to be postponed due to Beyonce‘s pregnancy, according to Deadline.

While Leonardo DiCaprio was rumored to join Bey in the Clint Eastwood-directed film, he has turned down the role.

“I met with Clint and I was so nervous and I know that it is the biggest opportunity of my life,” Beyonce said about the film. “I will work as hard as I can, because I can’t wait. And I am so happy that he trusts me and I am in good hands and I am so fortunate.”

    She’s pregnant but it’s not even Jay-Z’s. It’s Destiny’s child.

    Sadly the godparent will be surely the Gwyneth Paltry!

    Just replace her then. Who cares.

  • sethu

    I’m sooo excited for her I’m like her biggest fan and I wish her all the best I mean its long overdue. Congratulations Bee

  • BBperfume

    Sounds like a ‘surprise’ pregnancy. She is ambitious to get an Oscar and she would never pass a movie role of this stature if she wasn’t preggers by mistake!

  • Damien

    Get Hugh Jackman!!!

  • Miss-Don-Corleone

    For someone who has been very shy and discreet about private life, seems Beyonce’s hormones are going through the roof with all the hoopla she’s making in every corner about her barely showing baby bump. On the red carpet, starting her performance with words like”the love growing inside of me!”..then rubbing belly on stage..what has got into her? She must be really ecstatic it ‘happened’ Coz she knew she cannot get away from the stage spotlight.

  • Shauna

    Wouldn’t it be unfortunate if she had a girl that looked like Jay-Z?

    @sethu: “It’s long overdue”? Are you her biological clock? ROTFL

    VMA AWARDS???? WHAT VMA AWARDS!!!!

    Im the star Bey stole everybody thunder, sorry that wasnt just arrogant but self indulgent. she could have announced it a week before and let real star shine, but no. On the big night it was all about Bey

    Congrat anyway I hope the the child is healthy and dont look like Jay.

    P.S. is this HIS first child

    It will be the same if she was still a hot singer. You cant deny the woman the right to make movies because she’s pregnant.

  • Alien

    This woman is going to be unbearable talking every minute about her pregnancy and touching her belly everytime we see a picture of her. Last thing she could do is to make a reality show about it.

  • kallie

    If she did a lot of charity with all her money I’d like her a little…but then I’d say that about anyone who is mega rich.

  • Amazed

    Congrats but whats with the big announcement at the VMA’s ???
    I hope we don’t now have to see her every waking moment in the tabloids just because she is pregnant!!!!

  • Saph

    I thought Clint only worked with real actors did he see Dream Girls? I think she should be replaced there are plenty of pretty girls who can actually act and sing. Talk about a dream cause that all she can ever do for an Oscar it isn’t going to happen. Pretty much stole the show, was she nominated for anything? I do hope the baby looks like her and not Jay Z now that would be an unattractive little kid. I don’t think Bouncie is worth delaying a whole film and who would blame Leo for turning it down! The guys not stupid, makes me wonder about Clint! I was hoping she had learnt her lesson after Jennifer Hudson out sung her and out acted her in her first role and got an Oscar!

  • camillus

    You all know we are going to see every thing about this pregnancy, she’ll sell pictures of the ultra sound, weekly shots of her belly, showers being broadcast all over the world. She’s a fame whote. She said on an ad for Target she took time off to think about music. She’s been in the news daily since she left Destiny’s Child. I am great, I can sing, I can act, but she married the fugly Jzee and she’s become more obsessed with herself. I hope she has ugly child and she will probablly give it up.

    @Shauna: It would be unfortunate if it was a boy that looked like Jay Z too.

  • LL

    She’s a fake and they can get any other person who can sing…Why not Adele or Duffy? They would bring a hipness factor that Bey will not bring.

    Also let’s see if she will be flapping her mouth every second since this is clearly part of the private life that she values so much . She’s tightlipped about her “marriage” with Jay Z so I hope she does the same regarding the pregnancy. The next thing I want to hear is that the baby is born, until then SHUT IT.

  • Roxy

    I have nothing against Beyonce, but her acting chops is not the greatest, what the heck was Clint thinking, but then again Clint is a GREAT director, and anyone would love to work with him, I’m certain he could make a loaf of bread look good on camera.
    I seriously hope if the baby is a girl she does not look like Jay-Z. And Beyonce need to take some speech lessons. I cannot stand to here her speak

  • Roxy

    correction hear**

  • LadyB

    But she looks about 3-4 months pregnant. If she only has about 3-4 months to go, she will be ready to shoot the film.

  • Undecidedlove

    @camillus: I disagree… she is very private when it comes to her relationship… u never even seen wedding pictures of her so i doubt she will sell baby pictures

  • yaya

    She won’t look good pregnant, she will balloon like Mariah Carey. She’s no January Jones or Jessica Alba. No elegance in her appearance.

  • monie26

    So many haters.

  • zhinga

    Am sooo happy for beyonce i dont think its long overdue think its all happening in the right time…love u beyonce!

  • HumorMe

    She stole the thunder from the other artists. Kind of unfair n inappropriate if u think abt it. She’s such a private person-wut hapnd this time? Bey ur overrated…hav a healthy pregnancy n stay gone for at least 5 yrs. But as self-obssessed as u r, u probably cnt bear the thought of not being in the lime light.

  • x

    One small problem: SHE CAN’T ACT!!!!

  • XOX

    Very inappropriate of Bey! Just go away B and J SIT UR ARSE DOWN. So sick of them, lord.

  • Jon

    Yes, I’d love to watch Beyonce in, A Star is Born! I’m sure they’ll find a way to work it out now that she’s Pregnant!

  • Mickey

    WTF! Just goes to show you money does not buy class! Something as amazing and private as the birth of your first child announced on a music award show. !!! L-O-S-E-R-S.

    Jay z must have bought her that movie part. With awesome singers/ actresses like Jennifer Hudson around that is the only way Beyonce got that part.

  • ebony

    I will never understand why people have to be so nasty and negative, if you don’t like what you see, look somewhere else. If you think you can do better, go audition and show the world YOUR talent. Appreciate all artists, because without them life would be quite bland.

    I don’t think it’ll be post-poned for her. Not exactly an ‘actress’ is she? Dreamgirls and Austin Powers. Not great in either. She’s basically still Beyonce when she acts. Just replace her.
