Gallery: Celebs vs. the Paparazzi

Not being famous, perhaps I wouldn’t know this, but to my way of thinking, the absolute worst thing about being famous has got to be dealing with the paparazzi. Sure, when you live a public life, photographers are always going to be an issue, but I still feel bad for actors, musicians, artists, etc. who get hounded all the time for no other reason than that they happen to make a living in the entertainment industry. But celebs aren’t always victims; occasionally, they fight back! Sometimes the attacks more warranted than others, but either way, they make for interesting tabloid fodder. Actually, here’s a question for you: If a celeb is busy attacking a photographer snapping pictures of the celebrity’s everyday life, what does that make the photographer who’s snapping pictures of the incident? Food for thought… More »

13 Actors Who Could Have Played Iconic Roles

13 Actors Who Could Have Played Iconic Roles

Severus Snape? Alan Rickman. Marty McFly? Michael J. Fox. Vivian Ward? Julia Roberts. We all know and love these characters, and their actors’ portrayals of them were so perfect, it can be hard to imagine anyone else playing them. But guess what? If things had gone a little differently, Alan Rickman might not have landed Snape, Michael J. Fox may not have donned Marty’s orange vest, and Julia Roberts may not have become one of the world’s most well-known prostitutes. That’s right: Each of these characters were originally pitched to different actors, and in some cases, were even recast midway through shooting. What other iconic characters might have ended up being played by totally different actors? Read on to find out! More »

Nerd News: Movies That Will NOT Be Happening

Or perhaps more appropriately, Movies That Will Not Be Happening The Way We Thought They Were Going To. Over the last week and a half, two major nerd films lost their key players. First, Akira news: Keanu Reeves, who had reportedly signed on the play Kaneda in the live-action remake of the anime classic, said no. Second, Uncharted news: Today we heard that director David O. Russell, who had been attached to the film adaptation of the PlayStation game series, has pulled out, and he’s taking Mark Wahlberg, who was set to play Nathan Drake, with him. More »

Gallery: Best of 'Sassy' Magazine Covers

So Jane Pratt, the editor of the late 80s/early 90s teen zine Sassy, may be launching a similar-themed magazine with tween fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson. That is the best news we’ve heard all year for the magazine world, because the sardonic writing and awesome spreads in Sassy were one of the biggest influencing factors for all of us here at Crushable. They were Jezebel, pre-Jezebel, but without as much politics. They were Nylon, but with funnier copy. They were, essentially, who we wanted to be. And oh yeah, they had the most amazing covers that amazingly stand the test of time. We dare you to tell us otherwise. More »

Crushable Commenter of the Week: Inkhuldra Defends Keanu's Honor

When we expressed surprise over Keanu Reeves unexpected eloquence during his Vulture interview (in which he used terms such as re-contextualize and conceptualize), we thought we were paying the sad actor a compliment! Apparently not: there is a strong community of “Save Keanu” fans that believe the Bill and Ted thespian should be allowed into Mensa. We’re wary of urls sent in our comment sections, but congratulations to user Inkhuldra for introducing us to WhoaIsNotMe.Net, which has provided us with minutes of entertainment. More »

Crushable Quotable: Keanu Reeves Unaware Of Sad Keanu

We’re not sure if we buy into this Vulture interview with Keanu Reeves, where the actor claims to have no knowledge about his recent meme status as “Sad Keanu.” After all, ever since the first pictures appeared earlier this summer, Keanu seems to be purposely posing with maximum melancholy, even when say, he’s eating a cupcake. Then again, we didn’t expect Keanu Reeves to know such 50-cent words. More »

Sweet Repeat: Happy Keanu

Sweet Repeat: Happy Keanu

Poor Keanu Reeves (or as my dad for some inexplicable reason says it, “Key-nu“): The most amount of press he’s getting these days is his recent memehood of sadness, where people post shots of the actor moping around, head in hands, and titling the pictures “Sad Keanu.” But seeing as how little we actually know of this actor’s life, he could just as easily be a very happy Keanu. The evidence goes either way, really. Just look! More »
