  • sinca

    LOL

  • ricku

    She already has the body for it.

  • Journalistic

    Well she’ll at least look the part given that she does not eat.

  • lord

    well she wont have to try too hard for this role lol

    i just realised shes typed class she has paid many drug addicts in at least 3 films i can think of.

  • Ohmy

    She needs to lay off the botox and fillers. Her mouth is now crooked and one eye is drooping.

  • Blackcat9

    Ha!HA!HA! Kate’s playing a METH HEAD MOM! and a Bitch! What a perfect role! She certainly looks the PART and no make-up will be needed to make her look like a METH HEAD her complexion is more suited to this than a high scale cosmetic line! This is a HOOT! She won’t even have to act! Much!

  • ladybug

    Hey! An acting job! Actual work!

  • seeaaaa

    @ricku: haha omg i thought the same exact thing when i read it, i was thinking “damn well it’s not like she’s gotta try to look like one”

  • ladybug

    I’m waiting for her scenes with Franco. Because the pretentiousness will probably ooze from the screen.

    Note that JJ gives her a post for playing a meth addict and not for becoming the newest ambassador for SK-II. And he chooses the photo from last week where her top doest nit and it looks like she rolled her face in blush.

  • Jen

    Well, she has the face and body for it!! LOL

  • Ohmy

    We should start a betting pool, who wants to bet she screws around on Polish with Franco? Statham wouldn’t touch her, he has Rosie.

  • ladybug

    This actually has possibilities of a really good/bad cheesy movie: A script by Stallone, Statham in the lead (he’s a successful actor, just not very good), Franco, and KB. Will they have KB has a ‘pretty’ meth addict or go full blown ‘faces of meth’.

    And it’s got Winona! She’s 40, and looks younger than KB does.

  • Claire Mélusine

    She’s gonna act herself?

  • lord

    @ladybug:

    Bull s h i t Winona is not 40!!

  • ladybug
  • SHARE BEAR

    YEAH seems about right! SHES already SKINNY ENOUGH to play a meth head, so why not…soon her roles will be limited to drug addicts and anorexics due to her weight or lack of

  • eresyn

    she’s gonna be perfect for this role…she just has to be herself

  • CanD

    Shouldn’t be a stretch for her.

  • Blanca

    Some people can only spit venom.
    .
    It sounds like an interesting project.

  • OMG!

    Girls – your jealousy is very unbecoming!
    Great cast!
    SK-II campaign and a film with Jason Statham and James Franco. Kate’s doing just fine! Eat your hearts out losers!

  • Blanca

    O K you are funny, do you really think Kate has a meth-head face?
    really?
    REALLY?!!
    bless the internet. :D

  • FilmBuff

    Good cast. I’m in.

  • Blackcat9

    @Ohmy: I was thinking the same thing! That ring is not going to mean a thing if Kate thinks she can latch onto something better!

  • Anna

    One of the things I respect about Kate is she has never allowed herself to by typecast. She went from a fresh faced surfer girl in Blue Crush to a teenage girlfriend of a porn star in Wonderland to a wide eyed innocent in the comedy Win A Date With Tad Hamilton. And that was just the beginning of her career. Not many actors have the courage play such diverse roles and at such a young age. She’s talented and I’m looking forward to her playing opposite James Franco.

  • Jeannie

    Perfect role for her.

  • Tulip

    Exciting news!

  • Finally

    Kate has s finally stop over bleaching her hair hopefully it will stop the hairloss lol . She looks better as a darker blond not the white bleached hair too bad she didn’t stop completely coloring her hair and went to her natural light brown hair soo her hair can become thicker, recover, like when she was younger,,,,,,,,and yea she needs to stop filling those lips there are pics when she was younger and her upper lip was thinner……….

  • Shoegal421

    Shouldn’t be a stretch for her.

  • http://labelwhorre.wix.com/piecesly http://labelwhorre.wix.com/pie

    really ….METH SISTA…..speechless

  • esther

    Yeah! finally a film for her! we’ve waited for long time! and i love the whole cast! films seems so interesting, i hope stallone made a good dialogue!!! ;)

  • ladybug

    @Blanca: It could be. I know that Stallone’s written a lot, after all he did write Rocky. But … he’s not very consistent with the writing ability, IMO.
    So this could turn out to be an interesting little flick. Or it could suck.

    @Anna “Not many actors have the courage play such diverse roles and at such a young age” Uh huh, she’s just such a unique and talented actress that no one before or after tried to diversify their roles.

  • Whycantipost

    @Anna:

    She just plays herself in every role. The innocent girl for when she meets a guy, the ho for when she steals a guy from gwyneth paltrow, the drug addict for when she wants to be extra skinny, the healthy surfergirl when she was still down to earth and not so creepy looking.
    Yup. Very talented. -.-

  • lord

    @Anna:

    She is typed cast she has played a drug addict or something similar in a few movies. she sticks to the same roles. blue crush and win a date were at the start of her career when she was healthy, wholesome and fresh in Hollywood there were many young actresses after her

    her movies with a similar destructive or addict characters
    Another happy day
    little birds
    girl in the park
    beyond the sea
    wonderland

    i think the only reason she got the role is no one else wanted the part, come on people it was written by Sylvester Stallone. What self respecting actress would want this role.

    I also think James Franco is REALLY over rated.

  • ladybug

    @lord: Hasn’t she said she likes the ‘dark’ parts? I’m too lazy to go look that up but I think she’s mentioned that she’s drawn to those.

    Well, Lindsay Lohan could have played the role, especially last year!

  • Nice

    Stallone is a good writer and this is a talented cast. Should be good.

  • ladybug

    @Nice: “good” and “talented” must have different meanings to you.
    As already mentioned, Stallone’s not a horrible writer, and he’s written quite a lot. But most of that isn’t really “good”, more like passable. And other than Franco and Ryder, ‘talented’ isn’t a word I used to describe the rest of the cast’s acting talents.

  • Anna

    @lord: I forgot about The Girl In The Park. Both Kate and Sigourney’s performances were brilliant. As for Beyond the Sea, she played a young innocent Sandra Dee whose life spiraled downward. In that film her character ran the gamut. Kate was hilarious in L!fe Happens. I loved her scenes with Justin Kirk.
    Most actors seem to like dark, gritty films.
    @ladybug: I haven’t seen many films written by Sylvester Stallone but he created the great character Rocky Balboa. And Rambo, too. He’s a talented guy. I know he’s written quite a lot. How many of them have you seen?

  • ladybug

    @Anna: I liked Cliffhanger, but it wasn’t the world’s greatest screenplay. Same with Expendables.

    The overall quality of writing has decreased as the years have gone by:

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000230/#Writer

    Kate’s an average actress, especially recently. She’s not horrid, but neither is she really very good.

  • Georgia

    @ladybug: I don’t know what you mean by she’s an average actress, especially recently. Does that mean in your opinion she’s improved or not? I think she’s a very good actress, underrated actually. I’m looking forward to seeing While We Were Here. She’s gotten wonderful reviews.

  • Buzz Kill

    KB + JF = Onscreen hotness!

  • ladybug

    @Georgia: I mean what I wrote, in my opinion she’s average. She’s neither completely sucky nor consistently very good. I don’t think she’s improved, most of her better reviews were when she was younger.
    You think she’s wonderful, which is great for you, but for me she’s just sort of there, she’s not very memorable.

    @Buzz Kill, they’re playing brother and sister, so not hotness. And he’s a dealer and she’s a user, so extra not-hotness.

  • burnt bacon

    Kate Bosworth and James Franco in the same movie? I don’t think the world can handle that much pretentiousness in one place.

  • ladybug

    @burnt bacon: Yep, note my comment at #10. I think JF has acting talent, but the last two years he’s been such a pretentious dbag it’s hard to remember the acting part.

  • What???

    Are you people crazy? There’s nothing pretentious about Kate or James. They’re both extremely talented! Who are you people???

  • ladybug

    @What???: Who are we people? People who pay attention, that’s who. If you think JF hasn’t been acting pretentious then you haven’t been paying attention the last two years. And yes, KB’s got some pretentiousness as well, it’s just not as glaringly obvious as JF.
    And I’m pretty sure that KB and ‘extremely talented’ don’t belong in the same sentence together.

  • Fools

    @ladybug: Really? Please explain your ignorant comments. How is JF pretentious and how is KB pretentious? Look at your posts! You’re a silly, dumb, jealous girl with hardly any life. I feel sorry for you. I hope you’re young and have time to turn your life around.

  • YAY

    I’m excited for this movie. I love James Franco, Kate Bosworth, and Jason Statham.

  • Macy

    James Franco has spent the last couple of years babbling on about how he attended film school and that he’s super arty and writes stories, poems and stuff. James Franco’s favorite subject is James Franco. Guy talks about himself and pumps his own tires nonstop. Just read any interview in the past two years. It’s dripping with patting of his own back.
