Jeremy Renner‘s split from his wife, Canadian model Sonni Pacheco, has taken a new — and ugly — turn.
Court papers filed by “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” actor Renner and others last week hurl numerous allegations at Pacheco — including that that she threatened to reveal “intimate videos” of the actor.
“She can’t get out of her head that she and Sam were soul mates, so it doesn’t compute in Lilo’s brain that Sam might actually have found love somewhere else.” Ronson has been patient with Lohan, 29, so far, refusing to block her number, despite her new girlfriend’s wishes.
She’s already made clear that she’s quite the fan of the young real estate agent.
“He’s just a sweetheart,” Dina Lohan told Page Six last month. Being an only child and traveling the world educates you in other ways.
She also plays a mom on the Monday night ABC Family drama, The Secret Life of the American Teenager. But I'm very happy with my husband—and I think Matthew is quite happy with his wife. We were supposed to be in a John Hughes picture called Oil and Vinegar. He wanted me to play the role of a character called Watts, which went to Mary Stuart Masterson, but I was ready to graduate from high school. There was a tribute to Hughes at the Academy Awards ceremony earlier this year. There was a nude teacher swimming, scenes that were there just to insert nudity, to make the movie a little more like Porky's. He called me a week before we were supposed to start. He had us go through them, piecing together a script that was like the one I originally agreed to do. What would John Hughes think of your series, The Secret Life of the American Teenager? Once he stopped doing the movies that we did together, we didn't stay in contact. All my representatives kept advising me to write the story for Time. All I could think was that my hair looked overly processed. Well, I don't think there's anyone who could have played that role better than she did. Gordon Willis, a very famous cameraman, was shooting it. Warren would take Robert Downey and me into a room and make us break down the entire script. He would even delete stage direction because that was how Stella Adler, his acting coach, trained him. After I lose all the money and Robert and I are walking in the casino garage, I'm eating Maalox. Of all your film directors, who is the one who understood you the most? Which director got the best performance out of you? Warren Beatty had an impact on me, too, especially in terms of his interest in politics. John Hughes likened him to a modern-day Eddie Haskell from the series Leave It to Beaver.
She is the author of a new book, Getting the Pretty Back, her guide to style, friendship, romance, and motherhood. 19, Ringwald will join her Breakfast Club co-stars Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, and Ally Sheedy in New York for a Film Society of Lincoln Center screening and retrospective of Hughes, to be moderated by writer-director Kevin Smith. The script needed some re-writes and John didn't want to meet and re-write. In the Times story you wrote about Hughes, you mentioned turning one of his pictures down. You and Matthew Broderick, Anthony Michael Hall, and Ally Sheedy paid your respects. Before I made movies with John, whenever people thought of teen movies, they thought of Animal House and Porky's. The thinking was: if we're going to make a teen movie, then it should be like Porky's because it was a hit. Do you think you really knew what it was like to be a teenager? One of your best films that seems as though it's been forgotten is the romantic comedy The Pick-Up Artist, co-starring Robert Downey, Jr., and set in Atlantic City. Warren believes that every time a character does something, it should be organic. Comedy can be cruel, and while political correctness is important in many instances, it would pretty much be the death of comedy if it were taken to the extreme. I loved Diane Keaton in all her Woody Allen movies.
Lindsay Lohan’s new beau came from Russia with love.
The “Mean Girls” star’s recently unveiled mystery man has been identified as Egor Tarabasov, a 22-year-old heir to a Russian business empire whom she met through a mutual friend, reports TMZ.
He put her in that picture and two others, Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, making her a star. There are those movie actresses who are going along just fine and then, suddenly, they do something entirely different in their careers. Well, it seemed as though I'd never really lived out of the public eye. I signed a two-book deal with Harper Collins, so I'm thinking about the next one. When Sixteen Candles was released, it was criticized for stereotyping Asians because of Gedde Watanabe's role as the exchange student, Long Duk Dong.
By the summer of 1986, she was memorialized on the cover of Time as America's princess and "the exemplary California teen."After Hughes suddenly passed away a year ago this month at age 58, Ringwald wrote about him on the New York Times op-ed page (and isn't it just like Molly Ringwald to grow up and write a Times op-ed? You've written a book full of advice, especially for young women. I don't think I've ever been good at following other people's advice or counsel. For a long time, I was very career-driven and famous here. A script came across my desk, and I can't recall if it was even a firm offer or not. Pretty Woman is what it is because of Julia Roberts. Warren enjoys taking a differing and surprising point of view on occasion. There's a certain moral confidence that you bring to your roles. I think I have a very strong moral compass, and it may have come from religion. One of the news stories at the time quoted some in the Asian community as being "horrified, shocked, and offended." What do you make of that criticism now?
In a declaration dated March 17, Renner calls Pacheco’s judgment into question, saying that Pacheco — with whom he has a young daughter, Ava — “does not interact with Ava on a regular basis.” “I do not believe that Sonni is a bad person or bad parent,” Renner says in the declaration.
