Actors Trashing Actors

James Corden is being reamed (sigh…it’s been months since I was reamed).  Corden’s came courtesy of his performance as a gay character in The Prom.  Many critics have ripped him to shreds.  But my personal favorite was the Vanity Fair scribe calling it “one of the worst film performances of the 21st century.”

That leads into a special installment of Actors Trashing ActorsGlenn Close recently talked about awards.  “I honestly feel that to be nominated by your peers is about as good as it gets.”  So far, so good.  Then Close adds, “I’ve never understood how you could honestly compare performances, you know?”  Oh, you know this is going to be good.  “I remember the year Gwyneth Paltrow won over that incredible actress who was in Central Station and I thought, ‘What?’  It doesn’t make sense.”  I don’t know what makes me more giddy – that Glenn names Gwyneth, or that she cannot come up with the name of the actress she thought was so great!  BTW, it was Fernanda Montenegro.  You don’t remember her?  Or the film?  That’s ‘cause it was Brazilian.
