"That was definitely one of the draws for me to work with Stephenie [Meyer]. I had read the first "Twilight" book when I was 14 and really liked how clear she made something like first love and discovering yourself. I haven't seen many of the films, to be honest — I think I saw the first one and the last one, but it was more the books that I liked."

- Saoirse Ronan, on her preference for the Twilight books and not the movies, to the LA Times.

Voters Strike Devastating Blow Job To El Lay Porn Industry!

Filed under: Yummy Yummy ScrewR.I.P.PolitikTwitter

porn legislature passed los angeles condom required

Ruh-roh! El Lay might need to change it's nickname!!

As Barack Obama won four more years, marriage equality found major breakthroughs, and pot smokers rejoiced by binging on Cheetos, Los Angeles Country residents voted in new law specific to the porn industry!

Measure B requires porn companies to purchase more expensive safety permits and forces condom use in sex scenes. It passed, with 55.9% of voters supporting it.

YAY! Safe sex is good, right? …Right???

Of course safe sex is good!

The problem with this measure, argues the porn industry and the L.A. Times, is that porno films are already safe!

Strict screening measures exist to ensure that no participants are infected with STDs!!

All this measure does, they say, is add (unnecessary) condoms!

New Rule For The Oscars: Documentaries Must Be Reviewed By The LA Times Or NY Times To Qualify

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

Acadamy documentary rules change

Lame!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just seems to be making up rules left and right for the annual Academy Awards.

In the past they changed the rules so that MORE movies could be nominated in the Best Picture category, but now they're changing the rules so LESS documentaries can even be considered in the nomination process.

Starting next year, documentaries seeking the ultimate honor in film will have be reviewed by either the Los Angeles Times or New York Times.

Why the change? Academy COO Ric Robertson says there are just too many unworthy documentaries seeking a nomination, saying:

Everyone's Talking About Pianist Yuja Wang's Short Dress

yuja-wang-pianist-hollywood-bowl-orange-dress.jpg

A classical music critic is raising hell over Yuja Wang's outfit choice when she performed at the Hollywood Bowl last week.

The 24 year old took the stage in a tight orange mini dress, which according to LA Times writer Mark Swed isn't appropriate classical attire for the year 2011.

He wrote:

"Her dress Tuesday was so short and tight that had there been any less of it, the Bowl might have been forced to restrict admission to any music lover under 18 not accompanied by an adult."

Really?

Classical music is incredibly stuffy, so it's actually refreshing to see a pianist like Yuja wearing something like that.

At the end of the day, does it really matter? She's a young artist performing at the Hollywood Bowl in August! All you need to do is sit back, enjoy the music and let the girl wear whatever she wants.

What do U think about Yuja Wang's dress? Inappropriate or not???

tyra-banks-on-being-a-celebrity-author.jpg

"I question when 'celebrities' write books. But I don't consider myself a celebrity. I consider myself a businesswoman. I'm in business school. I'm a producer and a creator and a storyteller, so it's a little bit different than being an actress and being like, 'I wrote a book!'"

-Tyra Banks to the LA Times on being taken seriously as an author.

Zooey Deschanel Vs. The LA Times

zooey deschanel vs la times

You tell 'em, Zooey!

In yesterday's LA Times opinion column, journalist Patt Morrison spoke out against Zooey Deschanel for saying the following about Downtown L.A. at the BAFTA gala, which was attended by the royal couple:

"I just don't want them to see the worst of L.A."

Here's what Morrison wrote in response:

"I can't believe Zooey Deschanel is really the snobby cow she came off sounding like Saturday evening."

"I cannot apologize enough to Ms. Deschanel that in some places, the sidewalks do not smell like Jo Malone candles."

When Zooey read Morrison's column, she took to her website to fight the comments. She claims that the quote Morrison took issue with was "taken completely out of context," and that it was meant to be funny.

More from Zooey:

"You also open your piece by calling me a 'cow', which might be your opinion, but I wish a journalist for the Los Angeles Times and KPCC had found a more sophisticated way of sharing a difference in perceived opinion."

Yeah, we're def on Team Deschanel here! It's clear that her comment was innocent enough, and calling her a "snobby cow" was very immature and inappropriate.

Who do U side with here? Zooey or LA Times' Patt Morrison?
