There’s plenty of Entertainment Film News from the Toronto film festival. First up Oprah flew into Toronto to get her pic with her friend George Clooney. The duo superstars were last snapped together for the Africa, Vanity Fair issue. WireImage has the Clooney Winfrey photo.
The latest news in Toronoto is this: Get Low, the 1930s redemption drama starring Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek and Robert Duvall got a standing ovation.
Terry Gilliam is flogging Heath Ledger’s last film, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. It’s had mixed reviews but the Heath connection is selling it regardless.
The cast of Up in the Air, Clooney’s new comedy-drama film that resembles more of a Chekovian play than a Hollywood film has also earnt rave reviews. The film is an American masterpiece by director Jason Reitman.
Jason is also doubling as Megan Fox and Diablo Cody’s salesman, as he is one of the producers on the Megan Fox starring Jennifer’s Body and everyone in Toronto wants a peice of Angelina Jolie look-alike, Megan Fox’s body, so Reitman is having a blast in Toronto.
Reitman spoke a lot to the press at how his stars, spend most of their energy avoiding the paparazzi rather than acting. Say’s Reitman: “I’ve seen it on the set of both films, and it’s infuriating. As an actor, you give up your life to a certain extent, but you shouldn’t have to give it up that much. I’m not talking about a red carpet. On a red carpet, you’re there to get your photo taken. But the extent to which those actors have had to hide their lives, and how much they’ve had to give up in their lives is too much. It’s inappropriate. It’s wrong.”
Taking a comedic stab at the press, in the spirit of Brad Pitt and Matt Damon’s campaign of ‘Let’s out George Clooney’, George told reporters at Up in the Air press conference, “I’d rather have a rectal examination on live TV by a fellow with cold hands than have a Facebook page…”
And there you have it. Toronto is buzzing with films, stars, movie and producers. Canada also has the Twilight Saga stars filming Eclipse, so the biggest stars are in Canada this weekend and week. Nice! Go Canada.
