A three-judge panel has tossed out the defamation suit brought by actress Olivia de Havilland, in a ruling that affirms the right of filmmakers to embellish the historical record.
Mad About You and As Good it Gets star Helen Hunt appeared on The View on Wednesday where she spoke about the difficulties getting acting jobs as she’s gotten older. This is despite the fact that she’s an Oscar and Emmy winning actress. But Hunt isn’t sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. Hunt has been working on projects of her own.
Fun and clever, with serious things to say about sexism and ageism, "Feud: Bette and Joan" chronicles the corrosive relationship between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during and after the making of the 1962 film "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange are excellent as Davis and Crawford, respectively, in "Feud," the latest FX anthology series from writer-producer-director Ryan Murphy ("American Horror Story," "American Crime Story"). If you’re not familiar with the old movie on which this feud is founded, Baby Jane was conceived as a garish B-movie designed to trade on the fading wattage of Davis and Crawford — audiences got off on the spectacle of seeing these one-upon-a-time-glamorous stars lower themselves into the muck of a melodrama about sisters squabbling over their own faded youth and dashed dreams.
With so much to watch on TV it can be difficult to plan ahead. But we’re here to help! Here are the five shows you won’t want to miss this week.
Love is in the air and on the boob tube this Valentine’s Day, so SuperFan Los Angeles has been asking every celebrity we’ve had the chance to interview a not-so simple question: Who is your all-time favorite TV couple? George and Weezy from The Jeffersons were the sole duplicate as everyone else has fallen in love with a different pair of lovers, or they found a tricky way of getting too sentimental by opting for duo of platonic life partners, like Abby and Ilana from Comedy Central’s Broad City, or Magnum and Higgins from Magnum, P.I. (Dominic Purcell from Prison Break is insistent that it was his favorite series AND “without doubt” his favorite TV couple). Star’s Benjamin Bratt also chose to get… creative, and he picked Law & Order’s Lennie Briscoe and his finest partner ever, Rey Curtis, played by none other than Benjamin Bratt.
