Gay Films, Star Power, and Oscar Buzz: a Report from the Toronto International Film Festival

  Theoryof-premiere
Eddie Redmayne got a huge thumbs up in Toronto. Oscar-bound?

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

Hello all. Just back from Canada from the Toronto International Film Festival, aka the best film festival in the world, which wrapped up on Sunday. My fellow Oscar bloggers like to shill for Telluride these days but I’m convinced it’s simply Stockholm Syndrome since Telluride actually makes the press pay hundreds and hundreds of dollars for a pass for the privilege of giving them free publicity. In Toronto, if you’re lucky enough to write about the movies for a living, you get your press pass for free and your only expense, other than travel and lodging (which can add up) is your time. But what person who loves movies, wouldn’t want to spend that gorging on selections from all over the world, the best of Cannes and Sundance and a ton of new ones, some of them courting Oscar gold, too.

I was so giddy all week that even when I failed to spot Reese Witherspoon at her own party for WILD (she’s short, y’all and thus hides easily in a crowd even in a sparkly dress) I remained elated to chat with Laura Dern (one of the greats who needs big roles again!) and wonder what possessed Chris Evans to what looked like gloriously form-fitting white longjohn shirt to a party where everyone else was in suits. I’m not complaining, I’m just saying. I was so thrilled that even the sight of Eddie Redmayne’s back in his daring aquamarine suit and Andrew Garfield’s giant beard at THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING party was as good as actually talking to them, but I made do with talking to Oscar-buzzing Felicity Jones who, like Redmayne, gives her best screen performance yet in that new Stephen Hawking biopic.

Reese Witherspoon Apologizes After Arrest with Husband

Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon issued an apology on Sunday after she and her husband, agent Jim Toth, were arrested on Friday in an Atlanta for DUI and disorderly conduct:

"I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I'm very sorry for my behavior."

Toth blew a .139 on a breathalyzer while Witherspoon argued with the officer, got out of the car several times after being told to stay in, and told the officer, "Do you know my name? You're about to find out who I am. You're about to be on national news."

The couple appeared at a premiere for "Mud" at NY's MoMa on Sunday night.


Reese Witherspoon to Play a Gay Actor's 'Beard' in New Comedy

Reese Witherspoon is set to play a role played by a number of real-life Hollywood women, a romantic comedy called The Beard, according to the Hollywood Reporter:

WitherspoonChernin Entertainment has dipped into its discretionary fund to pick up the project, a spec script by Becca Greene.

Witherspoon will star in the project and produce with Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping of Cherinin Entertainment and Mason Novick.

While it might be tempting to see a story about Witherspoon growing facial hair, the “beard” in the title refers to a member of the opposite sex -- usually a woman -- who acts as a date for a gay person, giving the illusion the person isn’t gay. Story details were not revealed.

Do you think she's going to draw from experience?
