Viola Davis Says She Regrets Starring In ‘The Help’!

Viola Davis Regrets 'The Help'

Even Though It Got Her An Oscar Nomination!

Viola Davis is opening up about one of the most iconic roles of her acting career.

Much to our surprise, the Academy Award winning actress recently revealed to The New York Times that she regrets starring in the 2011 movie The Help!

The 1960s period drama starring Davis, Emma StoneOctavia Spencer, and Jessica Chastain tells the story of an aspiring author (played by Stone) during the civil rights movement, who decides to write a book from the point of view of African-American maids working for white families.

Davis feels the film missed the mark on the premise she was sold on:

“I just felt that at the end of the day that it wasn’t the voices of the maids that were heard. I know Aibileen. I know Minny. They’re my grandma. They’re my mom. And I know that if you do a movie where the whole premise is, I want to know what it feels like to work for white people and to bring up children in 1963, I want to hear how you really feel about it. I never heard that in the course of the movie.”

Despite its slightly tone-deaf approach, the film went on to earn a number of nominations the following awards season, including best picture at the 84th Academy Awards. Davis received a Best Actress nomination nod for her performance, while costars Spencer and Chastain were both nominated for Best Supporting Actress (which Spencer won).

But the 53-year-old says what she truly took from the experience were the friendships formed on set:

“The friendships that I formed are ones that I’m going to have for the rest of my life. I had a great experience with these other actresses, who are extraordinary human beings.”

The How To Get Away With Murder actress also added that she “could not have asked for a better collaborator” than director and writer Tate Taylor.

Despite her regrets, Viola’s career took off and never looked back. Since filming The Help, Davis went on to become the first black actress to be nominated for three Academy Awards (finally winning for Fences), and is the only black person to achieve the Triple Crown of Acting — an Oscar, a Tony, and an Emmy, well-earned for her role as ruthless lawyer Annalise Keating on ABC‘s How To Get Away With Murder.

You can catch her in the new crime drama “Widows,” which debuted last week at the Toronto International Film Festival and will be in theaters Nov. 16.

‘Boy Erased’ Star Lucas Hedges Says He’s ‘Not Totally Straight’

'Not Totally Straight'

Lucas Hedges Opens Up About His Sexuality In New Interview

He beautifully played a teen coming out for the first time in Lady Bird and is following that up with this year’s Boy Erased, about a gay teen forced into conversion therapy.

But he was also great as a straight teen who famously had “two girlfriends” in his Oscar-nominated Manchester By The Sea role.

So now Lucas Hedges is answering the question a lot of curious fans are starting to ask.

Video: See Lucas In A Very Different Role In Jonah Hill’s Debut mid90s

In a new Vulture profile, the rising star opened up, deliberately but with great trepidation, starting with a story about his youth.

He says he had a crush on a boy at camp and recalls how he felt confiding to his mother something a lot of people said was wrong:

“I felt terrible about it. I remember her being very comforting, and she understood that something was distressing me, and she said, ‘You don’t have to go back to camp today.’ [Pause] I’m sorry, I can’t help but feel a little self-conscious, only because I’m talking to you and the world at the same time.”

He continues:

“I owe it to this part to speak as honestly as possible. In the early stages of my life, some of the people I was most infatuated with were my closest male friends. That was the case through high school, and I think I was always aware that while for the most part I was attracted to women, I existed on a spectrum.”

Lucas recalls learning about that spectrum from a health teacher in sixth grade — and was at first concerned he didn’t feel like he fit all the way into the nice box of “straight”:

“I felt ashamed that I wasn’t 100 percent, because it was clear that one side of sexuality presents issues, and the other doesn’t as much.”

Finally, he explains:

“I recognize myself as existing on that spectrum: Not totally straight, but also not gay and not necessarily bisexual.”

We really appreciate how careful he was with his answer.

Wherever he is or isn’t on the spectrum, Lucas seems like a very sweet guy — and a hell of an actor!

Up next? Playing the heroin addict son of Julia Roberts. So yeah, something tells us he’s going to be an award show staple for the foreseeable future.

100%.

Legendary French Actor Gerard Depardieu Accused Of Rape, Sexual Assault

Legendary French Film Actor Gerard Depardieu Accused Of Rape, Sexual Assault

Legendary French actor Gerard Depardieu, 69, has been accused of rape and sexual assault, according to a new report from the Associated Press and French newspaper Le Parisien.

The accusation comes from a 22-year-old woman, who claims that Depardieu assaulted her twice at his home in Paris, on August 7 and again on August 13.

According to a French judicial official, the woman first filed a complaint on Monday, August 27 in the southern French city of Aix-en-Provence.

Prosecutors in Paris began to work on the case two days later — this past Wednesday.

The woman was not identified publicly by the outlets, other than being “a comedian and dancer.”

Depardieu’s attorney, Herve Temime, told French media that the actor “absolutely denies any rape, any sexual assault, any crime,” and further that he was “shocked” when the allegations were made against him.

Temime continued (below), arguing the crime was the “opposite” of his client’s personality:

“I have strong elements to show that no offense took place. He will obviously participate in the investigation and answer the questions … I regret that this investigation was not kept secret as usual.”

We’ll see about that.

For now, French officials continue to investigate.

Depardieu is a huge name in the French film community; he’s had a prolific career, with more than 234 acting credits including The Man In The Iron Mask1492: Conquest of ParadiseDanton, and The Count Of Monte Cristo.

He was nominated for an Oscar for his role in Cyrano de Bergerac in 1991, as well, and he won a Golden Globe the same year for his performance in Green Card.

We’ll continue to follow this story and keep you updated as it winds through the investigative stages.

Nicole Kidman Is UNRECOGNIZABLE For New Cop Movie! Look!

Nicole Kidman Unrecognizable In First Look At 'Destroyer'!

Dang, Nicole Kidman!

The Big Little Lies star has completely given up the glam for her latest project, a cop drama called Destroyer.

Writer-director Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, The Invitation) shared the first closeup pic with Vanity Fair on Tuesday, and it is HAUNTING! Look (below)!

Nicole, is that you?

Gurl looks like a Dorothea Lange photo!

Kusama explained the look, saying Nicole was playing a character who “wears her ugliness on the outside, all that smallness and bitterness.”:

“We always knew that what we wanted her to look like was a real middle-aged woman with a past that she wears on her face. With sun damage and sleep deprivation and stress and rage, just in her whole physical body.”

Innerestingly, despite her use of prosthetics in The Hours, this is not something Nicole is a fan of. Kusama recalled:

“Ironically, she also hates being in the makeup chair. She just wants to be on set working. So we had to make it as short an application as possible.”

Will the transformation pay off during award season? It certainly has the release date for it.

Destroyer, which costars Tatiana Maslany, Bradley Whitford, and Sebastian Stan, will premiere at TIFF in September and will hit theaters on December 25 — just in time for Oscar contention…

Casey Affleck Finally Breaks His Silence About Sexual Harassment Allegations, Says He’s ‘Sorry’ For ‘Really Unprofessional’ Behavior!

As more and more women have broken their silence during the #MeToo movement, Casey Affleck has kept a low profile.

In 2016, during his Oscar campaign for Manchester By The Sea, workplace sexual harassment allegations from the set of his mockumentary film I’m Not Here resurfaced.

The 2010 court settlement docs were closed, and Affleck remained silent as well — until now.

As part of the press tour for his upcoming film The Old Man And The Gun, starring Robert Redford, the Best Actor winner was finally asked the tough questions by the AP — and he actually answered, saying:

“Over the past couple of years, I’ve been listening a lot to this conversation, this public conversation, and learned a lot. I kind of moved from a place of being defensive to one of a more mature point of view, trying to find my own culpability. And once I did that I discovered there was a lot to learn.”
