demi moore couldn't spend some of that money on an acting coach?
it's not ageism that's keeping her from getting good roles, it's bad acting--when you're young and beautiful, you can get away with it, but when you're old and surgically enhanced 'beautiful', not so much.

For Britney's next comeback she's going to take a crap on stage ...

Yes, methinks I wonder if she thought all the good roles should go to older actresses when she was 20 and 30. I mean, can you really see a 44 year old women playing in St. Elmo's fire?

Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman are still working as is Jodie Foster.

and lest we forget, recently deceased oscar winning actress jane wyman also worked when she was an older woman!
most good actresses can find work when they're older, even without spending exorbitant amounts of money to reconstruct themselves to their "former glory." no, they aren't going to play the vixen or the ingenue but the parts the *do* get could possibly be more interesting.
i imagine it's difficult for demi to envision herself as the mom of some actor like..say..ashton kutcher.

Liz, your spotlighted, front and just-off center promo, Brit-pic-enhanced for gossip cred, banner on the WP homepage says chat at 2:00.

What's really sad about Demi' situation is that after spending £226K and getting zero return on her investment, she doesn't even have a quarter left to call somebody who cares.

And now I have a big Tivo decision to make, too: do I watch Meredith on the Quarreling Biddies Show and record WNBC's coverage of the Columbus Day Parade featuring Zucchero, or vice-versa?

Thanks Zulu!

I guess Demi Moore next career move will be "Dancing with the Stars".

How can Beyonce top a "Best Dress List" when her clothing line is tacky and ugly.

Posted by: Lisa1 | September 13, 2007 9:33 AM | Report abuse

Demi - it's not your appearance. Call your fellow brat-packers - Judd, Mollie, Emilio and the rest. They're not working either. Maybe they can offer a few explanations.

Besides, everyone knows how old you are. Putting you in movies that were intended to be played by those in their 20s or 30s would be silly. And you would look equally strange playing a role designed for your chronological age - or older.

Like it or not, you enhanced yourself our of serious acting.

Pay attention: Jessica Alba, Kristen Dunst, Jessica Biel, Drew Barrymore, etc.:

Your can future can either be like Demi Moore and Sharon Stone, or Nicole Kidman and Merly Streep.

Get to acting class.

I like Beyonce but the editors at People need to get off the pipe. Beyonce has never been a best dressed. At best she's between not so bad and what the.... Did they see the outfit at the VMAs?

Timbaland, sweetie Britney needs to apologize to everyone. However, I suspect that won't ever happen.

Now Merly Streep is a good actress and she keeps getting good roles. Oh maybe she's so good that each movie is improved by her being in it.

sounds like a good day to curl up on the couch w/a good book and read. at least until noon when it's nachos and sangria time w/liz!

Wow, I thought Gene had a cool job... but inventive memoirist tops the list of cool jobs to actually get paid for!

If you're going to claim to be me, I would ask that you observe some basic guidelines: I almost always write in complete sentences, unless there is a stylistic reason to do otherwise; similarly, I almost never use lazy constructions such as "w/a" and "w/Liz"; the first letter of the first word of a sentence (and the first letter of a person's name) always begins with a capital letter unless I am for some reason channeling e.e. cummings; and I am stunningly handsome.

I thank you in advance for your cooperation should you wish to continue impersonating me.

If Britney did indeed have her "abs" airbrushed before the MTV VMAs, it's time she found herself a new graffiti artist. Maybe Borf is out of jail and available to spray a mural across that billboard.

Rule 1: Stealing of names and/or spelling are not allowed.

You must come up with original name or be anonymous. A true celebologist not does not bite off other people that type behavior is for Perez Hilton.

Now back to the snarky comments made with love.

I guess if someone was going to impersonate anyone on the blog, it would be byoolin.

I had to do a double take when I read that Heath Ledger was holding Helena's "bag" for her.....while she was interviewed. I thought it was for while she was vomiting.
I guess I've been here in Celebville too long.

isn't helena like 50 years old now? and heath ledger, wasn't he in that teen movie with julia stiles? okay, just checkin'

I didn't think James Frey's writing was particularly compelling. It was more about the story than the way he told it. I won't be buying his new book, if anyone is interested.

Posted by: KG | September 13, 2007 11:17 AM | Report abuse

Heath (28) likes the older ladies, he dated Naomi Watts (38) and now Helena (38) I guess Michelle Williams (27) was just to young for him

Posted by: Anonymous | September 13, 2007 11:31 AM | Report abuse

if heath in fact likes the older ladies, well is say God bless him! and someone please give him my number.

byoolin, mea culpa. i should have known you wouldn't have a tivo dilemma between 'the view' or the columbus day parade on wnbc.

i do take exception to your description of the use of the contraction "w/a (or an)" and "w/Liz" (etc.) even though your comments weren't address to me.
i'm not being lazy, merely using a standard computer lingo type contraction from time to time. as for my non-use of capital letters, well, that's just basic laziness for which i hope would be forgiven. also, if you were channeling e e cummings, you wouldn't have put the periods after each of the "e's", but now i'm just quibbling.

Posted by: methinks | September 13, 2007 11:48 AM | Report abuse

methinks, you're right: if I were channeling e e, I would hope he'd have sense enough to catch me sticking unwanted periods in his name.

Was in a meeting, so I missed the chat and didn't post. Wasn't there supposed to be some "magic" in Brit's performance, thus her meeting up Cris Angel (or some other weird magician) and not "dating" him. I've only seen the video clips- was there any magic in the show?

Trust me there was no magic in that performance, unless she had the mushrooms beforehand.

I think both Criss and the stylist had the good sense to get off the train before it wrecked.

I'm starting to wonder if Miss Spears is more calculated and clever than she comes across. I know, I know.. it's a stretch, but think about it, we (the collective universe) can't seem to stop talking about her "trainwreck" performance, her post-baby body, her hair, her custody battle, her UPCOMING CD. I don't think she would have generated nearly half the buzz if she had had a very good performance while wearing a less revealing outfit.
