"Fifty Shades of Grey" is the Most-Watched Trailer of the Year So Far
I didn't realize we kept track of best trailers of the year but apparently we do and "Fifty Shades of Grey" had the best opening week of any trailer so far this year . . . and its first week isn't even over yet.
According to a tracking firm called Zefr, it's racked up 36.4 million YouTube views since it was released last Thursday. (Including about 12.5 million views on the official site alone.)
The previous high for the year was"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" with 31 million views. "Godzilla" and "Transformers: Age of Extinction" each had 26.3 million, and "Dumb & Dumber Too" had 23.5 million views.
Freddie Prinze Jr. Says Kiefer Sutherland Was Such a Jerk on "24" That He Wanted to Quit Acting
FREDDIE PRINZE JR. hasn't done much acting recently, and apparently that's KIEFER SUTHERLAND'S fault.
Freddie had a major supporting role on "24" back in 2010 . . . and in a new interview, he says Kiefer was such a jerk that he didn't want to act anymore. He says, quote, "It was terrible. I hated every moment of it.
"Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash. I'd say it to his face. Everybody that's worked with him has said that. I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I sort of just stopped."
He doesn't elaborate on what Kiefer did, but he did say he was forced to take his shoes off to do scenes with Kiefer . . . because he was so much taller than him. He adds, quote, "Just put the guy on [a box] or don't hire me next time.
"You know I'm 6 feet and he's 5'4." For what it's worth, the Internet says Kiefer is five-foot-nine, and Freddie is 6'1.
So-called "sources connected to Freddie" claim Kiefer's drinking problem contributed to him pulling a total Lindsay Lohan on the set . . . you know, being a diva, making people wait for him, stirring up drama, and so on.
Kiefer hasn't responded . . . but his rep says, quote, "This is the first [Kiefer] has heard of Freddie's grievances. Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."
Interestingly enough, that feeling WAS MUTUAL, at the time. In an old interview from 2010, Freddie said Kiefer helped him out a lot . . . and that he, quote, "really enjoyed working with him," and that it was "really rewarding."
"Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman Was Confronted by the Guy She Didn't Pick . . . For Having Sex With Him
The "Bachelorette" finale went down last night, with ANDI DORFMAN accepting a "proposal" from former baseball player JOSH MURRAY. If they're anything like most of the couples from this show, they'll pretend to like each other for at least a few more weeks, before breaking up for good.
But that's by far not the most interesting thing that happened. The big news comes from the live "After the Final Rose" special, in which the guy Andi DIDN'T pick, NICK VIALL, confronted her for SLEEPING WITH HIM during the show.
Viall was obviously still feeling the BITTER STING OF REJECTION.
But Andi told him he would find love again, and that he deserved someone who would reciprocate his feelings 100%. She also told him that she was never in love with him.
That's when he lowered the boom. He said, quote, "If you weren't in love with me, I'm just not sure why, like, why you made love with me."
It was a totally uncomfortable moment, and Andi was NOT happy that he brought it up. She called it, quote, "kinda below the belt," adding that was something that should have remained PRIVATE.
She added that everything that went on between them was real for her, but his take on the events might have been different.
"Game of Thrones" Author George R.R. Martin Is Obsessed with Boobs, Not Wieners
When "South Park" took on "Game of Thrones" and its author GEORGE R.R. MARTIN last year, they joked that George was rather obsessed with the MALE GENITALIA.
Well, the issue came up at Comic-Con, and George made it pretty clear how he feels. He said, quote, "I've been told that my character on 'South Park' is obsessed about weenies.
"I have to deny this as a scurrilous rumor. I have nothing against weenies. Weenies are fine, but I am not obsessed with weenies. I am definitely on the boobies side of the equation . . . boobies, not weenies."
George added that he hasn't actually SEEN the episodes. He said he has them recorded, and he does love "South Park", but he's worried that watching them rip into him might be too much for his, quote, "sensitive soul."
Kendall Jenner Thinks It Was Harder to Become a Model Because of Her Name
Whenever someone uses their name to get ahead, the first thing they do is pretend their name actually made it HARDER for them to get ahead. Not surprisingly, KENDALL JENNER would like you to think her family connections were a DISADVANTAGE to her becoming a model.
She tells "Love" magazine, quote, "People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn't.
"What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn't take me seriously as a model. Because of the TV show. I went on castings and some people weren't feeling me because of my name."
