Halle Berry covers the latest InStyle Magazine. Here’s what she had to say….

About Celeb culture….

“Ten years ago you didn’t see [tabloid] photos of celebrities pumping gas or playing with their kids in the park. What exactly is the fascination? We all do the same mundane things in life, believe it or not.”

On the internet ….

“I was a big surfer, but I’m done with the Internet. It’s gotten toxic, I could it out of my life. People on the Internet can say whatever they want with no repercussions. But if I have a flub-up or dumb moment, I have to take responsibility.”

On her ultimate indulgence….

“To be left alone and not followed around! Where nobody saw what I was wearing, and I could be free of anyone noticing me.”

Denzel talks about acting and directing

Posted by Media Outrage on December 27, 2007

Denzel

Here’s what Denzel had to say to Entertainment Weekly about his experience as actor and director of “The Great Debaters“.

Did you always know that you wanted to play real-life debate coach and author Melvin Tolson?
DENZEL WASHINGTON: No, absolutely didn’t want to play him.

So why did you end up in the role?
It’s called money. It’s called: They’re not gonna give you enough money unless there’s someone of a certain name to do it.

As the director of the film and an actor in it, did you find it hard to wear both hats?
Absolutely. It’s the worst part of it. When I did Antwone Fisher, I really hated it. But on this one, I just tried to embrace it, and have fun. It wasn’t so bad, but I wouldn’t really look forward to doing it again.

You don’t feel like it gets better the second time?
No — not the kind of actor I am. Because I’m dead serious about my acting.

How would you describe yourself as a director, then? Do you approach directing the same way?
I don’t. First, of all, I would try and say this: ”I want everybody to have a good time, I want everybody to work hard.” And if you talk to other people that were on this film, not too many of them will tell you they worked harder than me. I was the first one there, the last one to leave.

Tell us a little about young actress Jurnee Smollett, who plays debater Samantha.
DENZEL WASHINGTON: Jurnee was great. And let me tell you, these kids — Jurnee Smollett, and there’s another kid, who’s oddly enough by the name of Denzel Whitaker, he’s the young kid in the movie — you’ll be hearing [a lot about them in the future].

Sounds like he has a famous name already!
I mean, could you believe it? Denzel Whitaker. I told him, ”You almost didn’t get the job, just because of your name.” But he, Nate Parker, Jurnee, Jermaine Williams, are all excellent, excellent young actors. You know, the thing that makes me most proud is that I think I have a good eye for young actors, like when I did Antwone Fisher…Derek Luke turned out all right.

I think so. You may have helped him out a little bit.
A little bit. I think, you know, he’ll be able to eat from now on!

Can we talk a little bit more about Jurnee? People say this is going to be her breakout role.
Time will tell. I think she did a great job, and ”breakout” means someone has to give you a job, right? That’s what breakout means. It’s the most difficult for African-American women in this business. So I wouldn’t dare say that everything’s gonna happen great, because…who would you name that’s had a breakout role that’s her age? See what I mean? But I give her credit. She’s a great, great actress, and God willing, she will break out.

Will Smith’s “I Am Legend” biggest December opening ever with $77.4million!!!

Posted by Media Outrage on December 16, 2007

Will Smith

Will Smith’s “I Am Legend” killed the box office this weekend with the biggest opening ever in the month of December with $77.4 million definitely solidifying him as the world’s biggest blockbuster star today.

Via Deadlinehollywooddaily:

“Some amazing numbers were posted for this weekend’s No. 1 and No. 2 movie releases. Village Roadshow/Warner Bros’ I Am Legend opened $77.4 million — almost double the studio’s hoped-for $50 million — after making a whopping $30.2 million Friday and $29 million Saturday (-4%) in 3,606 theaters for first place. This more than demonstrates that Will Smith is now the biggest U.S. box office stud bar none and breaks his previous opening record (I Robot‘s $62 mil in summer).”

“It’s nice to be in the Will Smith business,” said Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros. “He is just the No. 1 box-office star in the world today.”

Mediaoutrage – Will has done it again. Even though we still feel that Denzel is a way better actor Will Smith is definitely still the biggest movie star in the business. Now if Denzel’s stardom ever catches up to his tremendous acting talent its a rap and every actor can just start filling out applications at McDonald’s. But congrats Will and keep doing your thing.

Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union speaking about working with Morris Chestnut to Eurweb….

“Every time we work together, it’s like putting on a pair of old comfy jeans, or your favorite pair of shoes that you’ve had since high school that never failed. He’s just so easy to work with in this day and age where everybody wants to be a diva or a divo. He’s so not that. He’s so humble and has no clue that he’s one of the best looking people on the planet. He’s just so easygoing that whenever they give me a chance to say who I want to work with, I pick Morris as often as I can.”

Will Smith’s daughter is next up to bat…

Posted by Media Outrage on December 4, 2007

Will and Jayden Smith

Will Smith has already made a star out of one of his children – son Jaden, 9, who costarred in 2006’s The Pursuit of Happyness. Now, the acting bug has bitten again in the family.

Smith’s daughter Willow, 7, makes her onscreen debut in his sci-fi thriller I Am Legend, due in theaters Dec. 14.

“She has a drive,” Smith tells PEOPLE. “She has an energy and she just connects to human emotion. I think a big part was probably [seeing] Jaden after The Pursuit of Happyness. She saw what Jaden did, and she was like, ‘I want that.'”

Still, there shouldn’t be too much tension between the young Smiths. Smith says they have different styles – and goals.

“Jaden is [like] Johnny Depp,” Smith says. “He just wants to do good work . . . He loves acting, he just wants to make good movies.

“And Willow is Paris Hilton,” Smith says, laughing. “Willow wants to be on TV.”

Smith says his daughter’s strong personality contributes to her impressive work ethic. “You don’t work with Willow,” Smith says, teasing. “You work for Willow.”

n one grueling outdoor sequence for I Am Legend, temperatures dropped well below zero, Smith says – but that didn’t stop his daughter from finishing her scenes.

“Willow was out there and she has her stuff on and she’s cold and she’s getting a little irritable. And she looks at me and says, “Daddy, I don’t care how low it goes. I’m going to finish.’

Continues Smith: “I was like, ‘Wow, that’s good baby, because Daddy’s leaving if it goes any lower then that 1.”
