    So, why wasn’t she at Tribeca at the premiere of the movie she’s starring in?

  • Female

    Always thought she was a good actress who just picked bad roles (or was just only ever offered them). Maybe she will get better offers. Variety and Indie Wire are pretty credible, btw, before the crazy people that don’t like her come out of their woodwork.

  • Jenna

    I’m sorry, but since when do two good reviews for someone equal “rave reviews”? Seriously, JJ.

  • ladybug

    @Female: They are, and maybe she’s finally concentrating on acting. I never thought she was a particular good actress, but neither a horrible one, so maybe she’s finally paying attention to it again.
    And the ‘why wasn’t she at the premiere’ isn’t really a snarky one-you’re the star, at one point you were listed as a producer, it’s in NYC, why not go?

  • commonsense

    Here’s the thing, calling her performance “never better” is not really saying much, especially since her career has been mostly riddled with a steady string of barely watchable performances.

  • alaia

    @commonsense: Perhaps you should read the whole.

  • ladybug

    @alaia: Well, you have to register for the Variety review (not going to happen) and I read the Indiewire review in the last post because Tulip linked to it.
    The reality is, the last time she got consistently decent/good reviews was for Girl In the Park, back in what, 2006/07? As I already commented, I don’t think she’s a terrible actress, but neither is she really outstanding, and the last few years she’s not concentrated on it, which has probably also affected the quality.
    And 10 plus pics of she and MB, how cheap were these photos JJ?

  • yep

    Congrats! I am happy for her!

  • Steph

    @ladybug: I didn’t need to register to read the Variety review, just clicked on JJ’s link above. Never thought she was a bad actress, actually thought she was good in Straw Dogs, but I do find the glowing reviews surprising.

  • Jennica Panettiere

    I liked her in ‘The Girl in the Park’. The girl might have talent but she’s just a famewhore.

  • ladybug

    @Steph: I’ll have to try it on a different computer/browser then, since I followed JJ’s link.

  • So sad

    Wonder why she didn’t go to Tribeca? These are the first ‘rave reviews’ she’s gotten in a long time. Kind of pathetic considering how long she’s been around.

  • Eresyn

    @Female: @ladybug:

    I always thought she was an average actress at her best, and wondered why she didn’t pursue getting better since she had a chance on the industry( i.e taking acting classes, and the sort). I hope she gets to like the good critics, and concentrate on her career and her health, and stop being such an attention fame craving person.

    *and burns those horrid IM boots! ;)*

  • Macy

    Count me in as one of the people who wonder why she wasn’t at the premiere. It’s not like she has other things to do right now. She could have easily gone. It doesn’t speak well that you don’t show up for the premiere of the film you starred in a lead role and helped produce. It’s one thing if you’re busy filming something and can’t get out of your schedule, but she’s not doing anything but walk around LA and eating pretend lunch.

  • Tanter

    Hasn’t it been a while since Kate and Kat Coiro have been seen together? Maybe they’ve had a falling out, idk. It does seem very strange. Per her twitter (!) it’s not like she’s doing much – unless her work at JewelMint is now more important than her acting carrer that is..

  • Actually…

    Can we please address the fact that she raided a Junior High School girl’s closet so she could steal this outfit?

  • Gina

    It’s very odd that she wasn’t at the premiere for so many reasons.
    An opportunity to walk a red carpet tops the list. Something is very fishy here.

  • Laira

    Maybe she’s not the “famewhore” everyone thinks she is. Honestly, since dating Polish, she hasn’t been photographed nearly as much by the paps. Sounds like she’s maturing.

  • Jeannie

    @Actually…: As soon as I saw these pictures, I was thinking ‘did she borrow clothes from Michael’s daughter’? I’m shocked she didn’t go to NYC. She didn’t pose with anyone at the Life Happens premiere either did she? KB would never miss an opportunity to walk the red carpet. Something’s off..

  • Whycantipost

    So she is raiding kid’s closets, and Polish is raiding Skar’s closet?

  • Actually…

    @Laira: You thinkk she’s maturing? Personally, I would say skipping out on a red carpet for a movie you starred in is VERY immature. Promoting the film you made is part of the job. The only reason she shouldn’t be there is if she had some other contractual obligation of a family/personal emergency. And she ended up making sure she got paped for the week a few days later anyway.

  • Rachel ()

    She’s had 2 reviews…we’ll see how the film actually stands up. It’s not even on Rotten Tomatoes yet. I agree w/ you guys. There’s something strange going on if she missed a premiere.
    @Laira: She was in Utah or something w/ Polish for like months though! She hasn’t been papped as consistently, but when she’s in LA it’s happened very often.

  • Shannon

    They’re always hanging on eachother like a couple of spider monkeys. We get it, you’re together. They seem very needy.

  • Shannon

    @Laira: umm are you kidding? she’s on here every week, multiple times. much more than when she was with skars. probably because now she has a willing partner in her pap game.

  • boo boo kitty

    @Tanter: i don’t think they’re on the best of terms…they didn’t even pose 2gether for the “sh!t happens” premiere. everyone posed with kat, but no one posed with kb…and ya it is really weird she’d miss an opportunity to walk a red carpet, for a movie she apparently should be proud of

  • ++

    Wow, the comments aren’t trollish at all today, I wonder why!, I hope those people keep their promises and never come back

  • BLAH

    i saw a clip of the film on the tribeca website…it was a nice scenery scene looked more like a traveling ad than a movie…but it makes me want to go where ever this was filmed.

    i glad im not the only who who noticed that kate didnt pose with the other people at the life happens red carpet.

    personally if your a producer of a film your put your own money in it so you should go the the premiere for it. its bad business. i totally think something went down and turned the friendship sour

  • BLAH

    forgot to add Kat C has a twitter and tweeted about this movie but no mention of kate too..

  • Tulip

    @ladybug: Respectfully, I disagree with you that the last time Kate got consistently good reviews was for “The Girl In The Park”. Overall, the entire cast of Straw Dogs was well reviewed, and the vast majority of her reviews for all the indies she’s done since TGITP have been good – Another Happy Day, L!fe Happens, and While We Were Here (but it’s still early). I think Kate has reached a certain age, maturity, and has some meaningful life experience under her belt that she now brings deeper dimensions to the characters she plays. I’ve always enjoyed her work but even more so within the past few years. I’m happy to see her appreciated for more than the girl the camera loves.

  • JEN

    who the hell holds hands like that? It looks completely unnatural and pretentious.

  • ladybug

    @Tulip: No, she didn’t get consistently good/rave reviews for SD, AHD, LH, not even when she was mentioned, she got some yes, but not consistent.

    @boo boo kitty, I wonder if she wasn’t at the LH premiere at a different time than her co-stars, hence no photos with them. Which is still a bit odd, since it also wasn’t like it was she was really busy.

    @Blah, it was filmed areound Naples/Ischia. It looks good, I’ll say that.

  • DailyNightly

    Hobbit should not have shaved off the beard.

  • BLAH

    lol i didnt even notice that

  • Une fille

    Kate, eat something !

  • ladybug

    @DailyNightly: I think he looks better w/o it, now if he could stop brylcreeming his hair.

  • Tulip

    @ladybug: What do you mean by consistent? Overall, her reviews were very good. LH (the script) wasn’t too well received but KB and KR both got great reviews. Did you see TGITP? The acting was superb.

  • ladybug

    @Tulip: I’m not going to construct a matrix, but the reviews for LH, AHP and SD weren’t consistent. Did she get some good reviews for them? Yes. And some bad ones, and ones where she was barely mentioned-so, no, not consistent.

  • bahama Mama

    I love Kate!

  • Lois

    @Tulip: Or Esther or 21 if you prefer.

    No one but you and two others saw that movie….just like most of KB’s recent efforts. As one of the other two who saw it for Sigourney Weaver, KB’s portrayal as a manipulative, self serving ,shady character was just her playing herself.
    As far as “she’s never been better”, that’s like saying Wonder Bread slightly toasted has never been better.
    In all fairness, the cinematography looks lovely and I would actually check out this movie were it not that Bosworth grates on my nerves.

  • Lois


    I can’t believe this 30 year old is trying to look like some 13-15 year old.
    I think Molish and KB will go the distance since this is the first man who has changed for her instead of her changing for him. She can dress him and he famewh*res willing with her.Too bad trying to morph him into Polgard looks incredibly pathetic. Molish is either really clueless or prideless.

  • mforman

    When I saw that Kat C didn’t go near her on the red carpet at the Sh*t Happens premiere and then read Kat C always was not seen once with KB at the afterparty, I knew they had a falling out. It is so obvious.
    Something really bad happened, because it you look at the videos from that joke Vail Awards, they were all over each other, singing each other’s praises, the last photo was them coming back from Italy after they finished filming this film.
    I think KB backed out of giving money to the movie, why else was her name removed as producer. Also maybe after using Kat C, like she uses everybody else, that was that, is anybody surprised.
    I mean seriously, RHW was hardly photographed at Coachella, as we noticed about KB this year, but there is an amazing one of RHW and Cher, how come out of the 20 JJ posted posted we didn’t get one of KB and Cher. KB doesn’t know how to be a friend and I don’t think she cares about it, as long as she has a bed partner that she can cling to she is happy, she will just find another friend to use for awhile and then drop.
    I agree she must love that MP has a daughter, that she can obviously borrow clothes from. I mean seriously KB stop it, you are 29 years old and you look ridiculous and please IM give her a new pair of boots.
    Also I only saw one review, but what are you stans comparing that too. Of course you guys will say how great it is, it is the only time any review said anything half way decent about her, it seems you guys have forgotten all the others and what they have said about her, “never been better”, better than what, read her WIKI page, when it discuss all of the failures and how she falls flat.
    The really positvie reviews, were all for Kat C. I think this film will do a lot more for her career. KB will probably kick herself for the fact that Kat C doesn’t want her anywhere near her.

  • leelee

    I didn’t realize Michael is half hispanic. I think he’s handsome.
    @ladybug: I’m not wild about the brylcreamed look either but it might be style for men these days. Mario Lopez had his hair all brylcreamed today on Kelly.

  • Friends No More

    Here’s Kat’s twitter link.!/KatCoiro

    Notice that she tweeted to or about everyone in the movie except Kate.
    She’s not following Kate either. She is following McMillz and ERW though.

  • Friends No More

    OH yeah! Kat follows Arlene Moon and anyone who has followed Kate knows who that is and what the connection is. Coldplay anyone?

  • Blackcat9

    @Laira: Kate hasn’t been papped as much because no one cares and she doesn’t call the paparazzi when she has one of her many procedures done. Like having her face peeled and having those exploding lips injected with donor BUTT fat!

    @ladybug: I still don’t get why are you commenting on Kate’s news. You don’t like her.
    You are an ASkars fan, they broke-up… get it over!
    Forget the “awful” Kate and stop your hate. REALLY.
