Daniel Craig Completely Horrified By Early Cut Of Dragon Tattoo Movie

CelebritiesDirt Bag

The fairly explicit posters for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo are just the tip of the iceberg: Daniel Craig says the film is “as adult as you can possibly make it.” Director David Fincher showed him an early cut of the flick, and James Bond freaked:”Fincher, he’s not holding back. They’ve given him free rein. He showed me some scenes recently, and my hand was over my mouth, going, ‘Are you fucking serious?’ It’s not that he simply showed me footage that was horribly graphic. It was stuff that was happening, or had happened. And somehow you don’t see it… There’s more than one way to sense violence. Much more powerful ways than seeing it step-by-step.” [Contact Music via Esquire, USA Today, Independent ]

And now, food for thought — and thoughts about food — from Gwyneth Paltrow. “I’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can,” she says. And: “It may not be the healthiest of indulgences, but cheese, really beautiful, well-made cheese, has to be one of the best things on the planet. Give me a slice of Camembert over chocolate cake any day.” [Showbiz Spy]

Finally! Suri Cruise will appear in a movie. Her silver screen debut will be a cameo in Rock Of Ages, the movie in which her daddy plays a rockstar. This is only the beginning, you guys. Next she’ll be the star, then the producer, then the director, then a studio head. [Perez]

He wasn’t seen for months… He’d had a string of bad movies and didn’t have any big projects on the horizon, and everyone was wondering, ‘Is Ben broke?'” Don’t worry, everything turned out okay: “We knew that he couldn’t stiff a businessman like Ron Meyer. That would be ‘career over’ in Hollywood. Suicide. Eventually, Ron got paid and Ben started turning up to the games again.” Phew! [Radar]
