Matthew McConaughey Films ‘The Dallas Buyers Club’

When I first glanced at these pictures, I thought they were of some older actor who wasn’t working much anymore. But it’s a very skinny Matthew McConaughey. He’s shooting a scene for his new movie, ‘The Dallas Buyers Club.’ Filming in New Orleans must be TORTURE. Matthew is surrounded by delicious food! He’ll have no trouble finding a po boy there- and a cheeseburger- once he can eat some food with calories again.

Matthew’s weight loss does demonstrate one thing: being too skinny really can age you. He looks far older than his forties. Just looking at him, I’d guess him to be at least in his late fifties. A little weight isn’t bad.

Jennifer Lawrence Dives In For ‘Catching Fire’

It looks like Jennifer Lawrence is back in the arena as Katniss! ‘The Hunger Games’ star was back at work after the Thanksgiving holiday. They’re shooting in Hawaii. It looks like the arena scenes for ‘Catching  Fire’ are being shot there. Not the worst work location- LOL.

It’s been a while since I read ‘Catching Fire,’ so I don’t even remember the details. I need to go back and read it! I absolutely can not WAIT to see this on the big screen. Normally I’m not the biggest fan of movie adaptation of novels. Nothing beats your imagination, right? Perhaps not, but ‘The Hunger Games’ movie adaptation came pretty close.

Tom Cruise Angers Londoners With Film Production

Londoners may be ready for Tom Cruise to fly back across the pond to the United States. He reportedly angered the Brits when production for his current movie, ‘All You Need Is A Kill,’ closed down the center of the city. The movie shot scenes in Trafalgar Square and surrounding streets for over three hours. A couple of people had this to say:

Louise Allain, of Westminster, said: “I wanted to get to Mass this morning but Trafalgar Square was closed. Thanks for nothing, Tom.”

Visitor Mary Lamont added to The Sun newspaper: “I can’t believe the whole of central London has been closed just because of a film.”

Apparently for one scene Tom lands in an RAF helicopter under Nelson’s Column, a popular tourist spot. Armoured vehicles were also brought in for the scene. A city spokesperson said that, while the residents did not benefit financially from the movie production, it ” raises the profile of the city and is good for tourism.”

I have to admit, I wouldn’t be happy with that reasoning, either. London is already a well-known tourist spot! Hopefully the rest of the production can either be done during off hours (like at night) or in less crowded areas.

Brad Pitt Shoots ‘World War Z’

Is it just me, or does it seem like Brad Pitthas been filming ‘World War Z‘ for a looooong time? We have pictures of Brad shooting this movie from over a year ago. The first trailer for ‘World War Z‘ just came out, for goodness’ sake!

Well, this is a major studio movie. So I’m sure everyone is working to get it just right. Therefore, Brad is back out- on the water, this time- filming more scenes for ‘World War Z.’ They’re shooting off the south coast of England. I have to say, it looks cold and wet. I’m probably thinking “cold” from how bundled up they all are- LOL. Are you looking forward to seeing ‘World War Z’?

Jennifer Garner Hangs Out With Her Kids On Set

Okay, this seals it for me. Jennifer Garner has officially earned the title of the MOST hands-on Hollywood Mom! Jennifer took a break on the set of ‘The Dallas Buyers’ Club’ to spend some time with her  two youngest kids, Samuel and Seraphina. They’re with her in New Orleans.

Here I am thinking Ben Affleck needed coffee in the evening to kick into parenting gear as a solo parent while Jennifer’s working out of town, and it turns out she has their two youngest with her! Violet could be in LA with her dad, unless her school gave her the entire week of Thanksgiving off. I know Jennifer has help (she certainly can’t leave a toddler and baby unsupervised while she’s filming!), but I’m still impressed. Now my only question is: will the Garner-Affleck clan celebrate Thanksgiving in the Big Easy or LA?

Leonardo DiCaprio Kissing Someone New

We heard that Leonardo DiCaprio and Erin Heatherton have split. So who is he kissing now? Leo’s kissing his leading lady for ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ Joanna Lumley. But don’t get too excited: Leo and Joanna are filming a scene for their movie.

The two were spotted shooting in Prospect Park in New York City. Looking at these pictures, it looks like a gorgeous spring day. I don’t even want to think about how chilly it was without coats! Leo has re-teamed with his favorite director, Martin Scorcese, for ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ so I have high hopes for this movie. I’m sure it’ll be worth some discomfort during filming.

Taylor Swift Films A Music Video

Taylor Swift was hard at work filming a new video last night. Taylor performed at the American Music Awards earlier in the evening. Then, rather than hit the party circuit, Taylor had to go to work on set to shoot this. She’s a hard working girl!

Taylor dyed the ends of her hair red for the video. What do you think of it? It’s definitely a different look for Taylor. Something tells me this look was just for the video, though: I bet it’ll wash out as soon as she’s done. I can’t see Taylor going for hair dyed bright red, even if it’s just the tips!
