Jen Garner Is A Pro At Being Pregnant In Heels

jennifer-garner-pro-in-heels.jpg

This is her third pregnancy, so we're not that surprised.

Jennifer Garner showed up at the Walker Presents Pink Party '11 To Benefit Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Program in Toronto wearing some pret-ty high heels!

We admire the fact that they're Prada, but honey, you should be nothing but comfortable and relaxed during your pregnancy! Jen spoke of the shoes, saying:

"I wore the short ones. Rachel Zoe would not be happy. I have some that are two inches taller that I wore last night. You go through a training course when you're in the Screen Actors Guild. They have an obstacle course in platform heels. Everybody you see out there, we're all in it."

We still don't know how you managed to pull those off, but you definitely ARE a pro in walking in them!

As for other ways she keeps herself comfortable, Jen says she has three rules:

- "Snacks. We have snacks in the car. We have candy in the car."
- "While I'm very good about caffeine, I am also not afraid once or twice a pregnancy to have a half-caf latte. Today is one of those days."
- "Find ways to be as comfortable as possible and just go with it. It's not an illness, being pregnant. I'm in the easiest part of it."

Well, you certainly make it LOOK easy! And you look great, per usual. We're so excited to meet that bouncing new baby of yours when he or she pops out!

SAG Actors Finally Hit By The Recession

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersBusiness Blitz

About time!

As some of you might be aware, SAG and AFTRA have been working on new contracts for their members that will be more financially efficient for everyone. It was announced today that one of the changes in the tentative agreements for new feature-primetime union actors is to drop the mandate requirement that air transportation must be first class.

Now, we're sure there are some people in the union who see that as an extreme loss to their privileges. However, the amount of money saved will allow a substantial increase to the minimum-wage rates and a hike in the health and pension contributions from 15% to 16.5%.

Nothing wrong with either of those things. Should the pact be agreed upon, the new rule would go into effect as of July 1st.

So the next time you fly out of LAX, you might want to take a look around your section. You'll never know what big movie star could hanging out in the aisle!

SAG Warns Actors To Not Work On The Hobbit!!!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

hobbitcover.jpg

This movie is so filled with drama and it hasn't even gone into production yet!!

Reports are saying that the unions for actors in film and television, SAG and AFTRA, have alerted their members to not accept work on Peter Jackson's upcoming film The Hobbit.

Members "are advised not to accept work on this non-union project" because:

"The Alliance agreement for large-budget international studio films…provides for residuals that are equivalent to those under the SAG agreement. The residuals proposed by the producers of The Hobbit are less in every respect."

According to unions, producers on the film have refused to sign union contracts.

Crazy!! Will this movie ever happen??
