    attention wh*ores…

  • Laura

    Why are they having a special sendoff dinner for this movie? It’s on practically no one’s radar.

  • Hype

    Is this film on any list of anticipation or are they the only ones that care. i have read no where about this film on any list other than it is going to sundance. But they sure are milking it like it’s the last thing they have to do before they disappear into…..

  • connie

    pre-sundance send off dinner? How pathetic….

  • connie

    are we gonna learn about pre-sundance packing and bowel starved for publicity can you be?

  • ladybug

    Trying again, since JJ’s behaving oddly again:

    @Hype: No, this film isn’t on anyone’s ‘most anticipated list’, that I’ve seen. Which doesn’t mean it won’t wow the audience and critics.

    And this dinner, while undoubtedly also a sincere ‘thank you’ to those involved, is also an attempt to create buzz for it. But look classy while doing so.

    She’s back to black/camel, which looks better on her.

  • Sersei

    They seem to celebrate a lot of nothing, don’t they?

  • Keiko

    WTF is wrong with her mouth?? I just don’t get it. No, seriously, I’m not trying to be a b*tch. I really don’t get it. She has just a lovely smile when she smiles with her teeth. But 99% of all the pictures you see posted of her, she’s doing this weird pursed-lips thing that makes her look like a snooty b*tch.

  • Lena

    He is one icky looking dude and she needs to stop pumping up her lips. They are one gross couple.

  • Eresyn

    a “pre-Sundance dinner” LOL :D…They better bring a minister at the opening, and get married right there or something, if they want to make any buzz…
    And yes, i hate that smug on hers, why can’t she just smile showing her teeth???? This kind of smile only show how she think she’s above all people, and how she loves the pap attention, it’s like a drug for her >_<

  • Willow

    her forehead is weird…skinny couple alert!

  • LooseLipz

    I think she’s plumping her top lip up and it looks weird.
    She’s way to thin and he’s way to creepy.

  • ladybug

    @connie: I’m surprised she didn’t tweet about last year’s clothing selections, since they had just started their Twitter feeds then.

    @Eresyn, don’t give them any ideas about getting married at the premiere! They do seem to be trying very hard to get a buzz going, don’t they?

  • LivingGirl

    First I’ve heard of this film… Think I’ll pass on watching it too.

    But seriously, what’s going on with her lips?? I don’t remember her lips looking like that in the last Just Jared story they had about these two. They’re a little freaky looking.

  • Good by

    Well I hope they were having a send off dinner to say good riddance and enjoy there new life on planet mars, we haven’t got to look at them on this planet

  • chelle

    I have to say I love my hubby more than words can express but I don’t hang all over him in public, post stupid ass lovey crap on twitter flash my engagement ring or push myself in his face /croch /whatever in front of everyone… to me that’s a sure sign of neediness and very low self esteem

  • Never changes

    @chelle – You really can’t help yourself,can you? Once a lowlife, always a lowlife – that’syou chelle.

  • Tulip

    I’m looking forward to this film. Obviouslsy, I’m a Kate fan but I also think Michael is really talented (Twin Falls Idaho is one of my favorite movies) and Jack Kerouac was an interesting writer and one of the first of the beat generation. I’ve read his books and Big Sur gives a fascinating look into his disintegrating life. I’m so tired of violent movies that require no thought.

  • Anticipation

    I’m anxiously awaiting the demise of this couple. Those that vomit their love on twitter and in any press/pap situation are the most entertaining on the backslide.

  • mforman

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Just as the creature threw herself that ridiculous NYLON party, here once again the two famewhores paid for a “pre Sundance dinner”. This is such an obvious ploy to get some kind of publicity for a film that has taken this long to even get a showing anywhere, reminds me of what Rod L did for SD, the desparation just stinks.
    @Tulip—-I really cannot comment on the topic of the hobbits talent, because the only thing I have seen of his was that horrible film Astronaut Farmer. What is sad is that I enjoy Kerauc’s works, but I do not have much faith in this film.
    Honestly that is why I think it had so many reshots and had him re editing and why it took forever to be shown anywhere. I guess time and the critics will be the judge.
    @Eresyn—-The creatures smirk, smug expression is just disgusting. KB truly thinks she walks on water, and boy oh boy is she wrong. I have never seen another celebrity who thinks so highly of themselves and doesn’t care that everybody knows it, it is like she prides herself on being an untalented, vapid, void, shell of a person. There is nothing endearing about her, nothing at all. Actually, even as a couple they are not endearing, clinging to each other the way they do, just makes my skin crawl, and I am not the only one.
    Eventually the pap attention will stop, whether or not she pays them, because they are even going to start to realize her true character and nature and they will see the creatures photos do not sell and hardly get published.
    Now we will have JJ’s nonstop posting of them at Sundance, at least we will get to laugh a lot.
    @chelle—I think you are awesome and you and your hubby are what a real couple should be.

  • Hailey

    They’re sweet together. Happy, in love, and very respectful of one another.

  • ladybug

    @Tulip: “I’m so tired of violent movies that require no thought.”

    Those aren’t mutually exclusive, not all violent movies are thoughtless and not all non-violent movies require thought.

    As already mentioned, this isn’t my type of movie because I’m not a Kerouac fan. I hope that for those who like Kerouac it’s a good movie. But the reality is, currently there isn’t a lot of buzz for the movie. Perhaps that’ll change in a week.

    @chelle, I see your personal troll is back, though using a different name again, of course.

  • whoohoo

    I love Jean-Marc Barr. Great actor.

  • Lord

    the up and down arrows are up again?? Where did they go before durning the GG??

  • ladybug

    @Lord: JJ never bothered to let us know what was going on with them, but I suspect they might have been turned off to work on some IT issues. Which don’t seem to have been solved, comments are still disappearing.

  • Never changes

    @chelle – Praise from mforman? If she thinks you’re awesome that says a lot about you (and not in a good way). lol

  • Suze

    Is this a farewell to her career dinner?

  • ladybug

    @Suze: I do wonder what will happen with her acting career if this doesn’t get her good reviews. Heck, she got fairly decent reviews for WWWH, and that doesn’t seem to have helped her.
    And other than 18 Wheel Butterfly, which is still listed in preproduction, he doesn’t seem to have anything going on. And if 18 WB happens, it won’t be happening with ERW, not anytime soon.

  • Really?

    From the Sundance site:
    1/23 Power-couple, and the director and star of Big Sur, @michael_polish @katebosworth respectively, are today’s Guest Tweeters. Look out for their updates from the film’s premiere tonight!

  • Really?

    @Really?: Oh goody, I can not wait.
    I’m not begrudging them for trying to generate buzz for their independent movie, which is very hard to do, but I don’t really think live tweeting the premiere will be a very interesting read. And really, power-couple? In what world are they a power couple?
    Sorry it was in two posts, JJ is still acting buggy.

  • ladybug

    @Really?: “Power couple”?! Really? Robin B’s really earning her salary this month. A director who’s never had a commercial success, and only works every few years, and his fiancée/star who doesn’t really have much of a acting career. And this is a power couple?

  • chelle

    @Never changes: I more awesome than you could imagine… I had the VERY distinct pleasure of sewing up a tear in a heart over the weekend. What did you do?? I guess I’m pathetic because I don’t have to whore myself or my relationship out…. whatever… keep trolling…

  • Keiko


    POWER COUPLE? In what f*cking galaxy?? Not in the Milky Way.


    That’s the one WE ALL LIVE IN, for the stupid people.

  • Suze

    @ladybug: She did get decent reviews for that. Was it limited release only? That could be part of the problem.

  • Keiko


    Kate Bosworth would never be with a man who’s not wealthy. She came up well-to-do, is a spoiled only child who’s been doted on her whole life, has been a celebrity since her teens, AND SHE LOVES TO SHOP. No way would she ever be with a man who doesn’t have money or prospects. Which leads me to believe Michael Polish has family money. No way is he wealthy just from doing movies.

  • ladybug

    @Suze: WWWH? Hasn’t been released, though it supposedly has distributors both foreign and domestic. And Black Rock hasn’t been released yet either, though it premiered at last year’s Sundance. Though IMDB has it now for a May release.

    Who knows, maybe she’ll get good reviews for Movie 43, out next week.

    @Keiko, I’ve wondered where he gets his money, since not only does he not seem to work that much, his movies don’t make money.

  • Suze

    @ladybug: Oh I thought it was released already! Movie 43 may do well with all of the other people in it.

  • Rose

    what a disappointment this blog, Jared, It used to be a nice place to comment freely. Not anymore. I realize that you manipulate people and their opinions. For example appear as I used the option to vote (thumbs up / down) the comments 10, 11, 17, 26 and therefore I can not exercise my right to vote. This s*cks.

  • FilmBuff

    Based on the trailer, Big Sur looks interesting and true to Jack Kerouac narrative. Without doubt it’s visually outstanding. Big Sur is a bold undertaking because it won’t be the most commercial film out there but that’s something I applaud.
    @Tulip: The audience will have to pay attention to follow the complexity of the storyline if that’s what you mean by a film that requires thought.

  • Lord

    LOL Polish just re-tweeted this post!!!!!!!!

    I bet #38 his him. At least he would of read the comments if he didnt comment.


    You people are so negative about someone you probably have never met! I worked pretty closely with Kate and she was sweet, polite and smart. And a ton of designers send her a bunch of clothing/products for free… So much that I was allowed to take some for myself.

    If you want to see smug, I would advise you to look in the mirror as you type your sourpuss comments.

  • Whycantipost


    A farewell dinner because they are soon leaving to go live on a deserted island. They decided to go for it, because they were allowed to bring their phones with Twitter pre-installed on it.

  • Whycantipost


    Why are you so negative towards us? We are very sweet irl!

  • Lord

    #40 if you’ve worked close with Kate and other celebs you would know designers send stuff to everyone it’s not something out of the ordinary. They get free swag b/c she gets paped all the time cus she calls them.

  • ladybug

    @CHEEKSTER: It’s possible that you’ve met her and she was polite and sweet and smart.
    It’s also possible that you’re a stan making stuff up.

    @Lord, I’m not sure he reads the comments, he ended blocking Kate’s Evil Twin twitter because it’s a ‘mean’ parody feed. I don’t think he likes reading negative things about his bride-to-be.

    @FilmBuff, he doesn’t do commercial films anyway, so this isn’t something new to him. And and awful lot of films are made and released every year that won’t every be commercial successes. It’s not like he’s doing something totally unique and out of the ordinary.

  • Keiko


    LOL, is that you, Polish?

  • Keiko


    If you’re telling the truth it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve heard that Bosworth is “sweet” and “nice” in the workplace. So she’s professional, good for her. That doesn’t change the fact that she’s a snob who thinks her sh*t doesn’t stink even though she has zero talent and less personality than a throw carpet, and that she starves herself and uses fillers in her face, and she’s a desperate famewh*re. She’s not a person to be admired, no matter how many people comment that she’s nice to the people in craft services. Furthermore, if you really dig into the person that is Bosworth you won’t find anyone saying anything substantial about her. It’s always “nice” and “sweet”. The truth is, she’s not a nice person, period.

  • Keiko

    Oh, I see Jared now has my comments going through moderation. Well, isn’t that special.

  • Suze

    @Keiko: Mine are too.

  • Never changes

    @chelle – You have dragged yourself up , but not enough. No matter what you SAY you do.. You can’t hide what you are because it always shows itself.
