The Call Sheet sifts through the day's glut of Hollywood news to find the stories even non-industry types can care about. Today: Brett Ratner is as unpleasant as ever, perhaps even more so; Kristen Stewart just gets too into it sometimes, and Megan Mullally gets a gig.
In this fast-paced, ever-changing world, it's nice to know that at least some things stay the same. For example, popcorn director Brett Ratner is still a big old jerk. Sure he's going all classy by directing next year's Oscars ceremony, but no amount of gilded awards show glitz can overcome a quote like this, from a recent appearance on Attack of the Show in which he discussed actress Olivia Munn:
She was hanging out on my set of After the Sunset, I banged her a few times … but I forgot her. Because she changed her name … I didn’t know it was the same person. So when she came and auditioned for me for a TV show, I forgot her, she got pissed off and she made up all these stories [in her book] about me eating shrimp and masturbating in my trailer. And my shortcomings. She talked about my shortcomings. I get it. She’s bitter.
Terrific! Ratner then went on say that when he knew (carnally and otherwise) Munn she "wasn’t Asian back then," which makes sense because we all remember when Olivia Munn had that long and painful Be-Asianing procedure. That's just historical record. Rock on, Brett Ratner! [EW]
Speaking of unsettling sex things, Summit apparently had to reshoot the big climactic (heh) sex scene in the upcoming Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 because star Kristen Stewart was, uh, thrusting too much. Director Bill Condon says that there are certain MPAA rules about thrusting and that Stewart broke them. Thrusting rules! Man, the MPAA is America's most useful deliberative body, isn't it? Just always doing the stuff that matters. No word on what kind of thrusting Stewart's costar Robert Pattinson was doing, but the general rule, as made by the Tween Girl Association of America, is that no Robert Pattinson thrusting is too much Robert Pattinson thrusting.
