Carrie Fisher Admits To ‘Intense’ Love Affair With Married Co-Star Harrison Ford On The ‘Star Wars’ Set

ford-fisher

(PCM) It has long been speculated for years, however a love affair between “Star Wars” co-stars Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford was never confirmed, that is until now! Actress Carrie Fisher, who portrayed Princess Leia in the film franchise has officially revealed that she did indeed have an “intense” love affair with her married co-star Harrison Ford while they were filming “Star Wars”.  Fisher was 19 years old at the time and Ford was 33. 

The filming for “Star Wars” lasted about three months, which Fisher reveals is about the length of time their love affair lasted. All of the juicy details can be found in Fisher’s new book “The Princess Diarist”, however People Magazine was given a steamy excerpt that reads ““It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend. I looked over at Harrison. A hero’s face — a few strands of hair fell over his noble, slightly furrowed brow,” she writes. “How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me?”

Fisher closely guarded the pairs secret romance for over 40 years and finally decided to share their story with the world after going through several of the old journals she kept during that time. The affair apparently began after a birthday party for director George Lucas. Fisher reveals that the relationship came to a natural end once filming was completed and there was no ill will between the two when all was said and done, although we are pretty sure Harrison’s wife at the time would not have been to thrilled. 

Ford was given a warning about the excerpt from Fisher’s new book, however he has not released any official statement.

Everyone Is Talking About Corey Feldman’s Bizarre ‘Today Show’ Performance

corey-feldman1

(PCM) It appears that actor Corey Feldman fancies himself a musician these days. Actually, he has been trying to break into the mainstream music realm for quite a few years with limited success. He managed to release a few albums over the years and play a one-off gig here and there, but that was about it, that is until now!

The internet is buzzing about Feldman’s recent appearance on “The Today Show” as his performance was just about as bizarre as you would expect it to be, so much so, that we doubt NBC will even be releasing any additional video clips. Feldman claims that he is currently collaborating with Snoop Dogg on a new track called “Go 4 It”, which is perhaps why he was asked to appear on “The Today Show” in the first place.

Feldman, looking like a mix between Lord Voldemort and Michael Jackson, choppily danced robotically around the stage flanked by his band of women dressed as angels whom he referenced as “Corey’s Angels” (clever … really!).  Judging by the reactions people are having via social media, it appears that Feldman many have to hit the drawing board once again in an attempt to launch his music career.

He appeared to be taking this dead seriously, while those that were able to catch the performance thought the entire thing was utterly hilarious!  Check out the YouTube clips that surfaced below:

Star Trek Celebrates 50th Anniversary! Did You Know Lucille Ball Saved The Series?

lucy-star-trek

(PCM) The iconic and cult-favorite series Star Trek is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary, but did you know that the series almost didn’t make it on the air? It was actually saved by actress and producer Lucille Ball!

Lucy was the head of Desilu Productions and when it was revealed how much the pilot episode of the Star Trek series was going to be to complete it was initially rejected by the production company. Lucy overruled her entire board of directors and made sure that the pilot was produced.  It was later rejected by NBC back in 1964, however the network did ask for another pilot to be filmed with actor William Shatner taking on the role of Captain Kirk.

Lucy financed the project once again going against the judgement of her board of directors. Just another reason why we certainly love Lucy even more!

Actor William Shatner spoke with AARP magazine last month in regards to looking back on 50th anniversary celebration. On the subject of Star Trek being a hit show he said “I mean, Star Trek teetered on the brink for three years. Even while we were on the air, I was probably keeping my eyes open for other jobs.”

When speaking about the power of “Enterprise” Shatner commented “I was making a documentary, and I needed an airplane. So I cold-called an executive at the Canadian airplane manufacturer Bombardier and asked to borrow one. He said, ‘Sure! I became an aeronautical engineer because of you. This is my payback.’”

He went on to jokingly speak out his Starfleet rivals saying “I’m jealous of all the captains who followed me. Some are even young and good looking. I was young and good looking; the important word is ‘was.’”

When asked about being at peace with Captain Kirk, Shatner reveals “Whatever success I’ve had is because of him. I was a leading man, kissing the girls and fighting the villains. That’s not a bad bag to be in.”

A little more Star Trek history: 

Star Trek: The Original Series made its broadcast debut 50 years ago on September 8, 1966, premiering with “The Man Trap.” With this premiere, Star Trek promised to take viewers on a five-year mission where no one had gone before. However, that mission almost ended before it began, as the network rejected the original pilot episode, believing it was “too slow” with “not enough action.” Titled “The Cage,” that first pilot episode would be locked away and not broadcast in its completed form until 22 years later.

The early story of the Star Trek debut is fascinating to fans of classic television and Sci Fi. Beginning in 1966, the Trek journey began with a pilot episode titled “The Cage.” While this episode featured familiar elements, it was otherwise quite different from the Star Trek series audiences would soon discover. This first pilot-to-series version takes place 13 years prior to James T. Kirk taking command of the U.S.S. Enterprise. It had a different Captain, Christopher Pike (Jeffrey Hunter), and with the exception of R. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) it had an entirely different crew and a very different feel. The network rejected this original version, and the episode did not air on television in its completed form until 1988. But the Star Trek concept and universe lived on. A second pilot was ordered and from there the studio went on to produce new episodes, including what would be the premiere episode “The Man Trap” (1966), starring the beloved Star Trek crew led by Capt. James T. Kirk (William Shatner).

Kanye Stirs Up Controversy With ‘Famous’ Music Video Featuring Various Naked Celebs Including Taylor Swift

Kanye-famous-vid2

(PCM) The words Kanye West and controversy always seem to go hand in hand and he is once again stirring the pot with his latest music video for the song “Famous” off his latest album release “The Life Of Pablo”.  Despite the fact that the album has been out since Valentine’s Day, “Famous” is still the only official single and the first track off the album to receive a music video, and a very NSFW one at that, but from Kanye would you expect anything less.

As he recently tweeted, “Can somebody sue me already? #Ill wait”, Kanye already realizes that he could be in hot water for his video’s depicting of several high-profile celebrities in the nude laying on a massive bed together. Many of the naked celebs featured in the video are realistic looking wax figures, however there are definitely a few such as Kanye, himself, his wife Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, and Caitlyn Jenner who may actually be real, judging by the bodily movements when taking a closer look at the video.

Other celebrities whose naked likeness is represented are Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, Vouge editor Anna Wintour, Chris Brown, Amber Rose, Ray J and shockingly Bill Cosby. Kanye claims the video, which is only currently available for viewing on Tidal, is a comment on fame and he says that other celebrity friends he shared the video with began complaining because they wanted to “be in the bed”.

Love him or hate him, Kanye always has a very unique and artistic viewpoint on pop culture and is never afraid to push the limits for the sake of art and social commentary. Some celebrities featured in the video have already spoken out about having their nude likeness splayed out in the video. While, Chris Brown was jokingly complaining about his “plumber’s crack”, Taylor Swift is said to be horrified by her depiction in the video.  Other celebrities have yet to publicly comment.

You can see a shortened snippet of the video below, keep in mind that it is incredibly NSFW and contains both implied and actual nudity.

Jodie Foster’s 3 Most Memorable Roles

Award winning actress, Jodie Foster earned her spot on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on Wednesday when she received her own star on the famous Hollywood boulevard. Starring in the likes of such classics as Taxi Driver, it is safe to wonder why she was not given a slot sooner!

Foster’s career does not just involve the art of acting. She has dabbled in directing and producing movies and television. Her appearances in movies have been sporadic in the last several years ,but anything is possible and all it takes is one smart choice of script to make another big impact in cinema once again.

Until, and if that happens, why don’t we analyze what this editorial picks as her three most memorable roles!

Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs (1991)

The classic psychological thriller is now 25 years old, as frightening as that maybe. The Oscar winning picture, directed by Jonathan Demme, was made with enough class so as not to easily be dismissed by the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences as horror movies often are. Jodie Foster won an Oscar for Best Actress for Silence of the Lambs and it truly wasn’t just down to Anthony Hopkins’ slightly campy portrayal of man eating villain Hannibal Lecter. Foster’s Clarice Starling was young and vulnerable, somebody who was thrown into the “lion’s den.” Starling eventually found her deeply concealed courage as the FBI agent who was on the trail of a serial killer, but at the same time was seduced by Lecter’s cunning psychological methods behind bars to reveal personal information that resulted in the two forming an unusual bond.

One cannot help but think that had Foster signed up for the mediocre Hannibal (2001) that the sequel would have earned a more elevated reputation. Julianne Moore is a great actress but her altered portrayal, giving Starling a more assertive edge, took away from the apprehension that the story for that movie was narrating.

Meg Altman in Panic Room (2002)

Foster made a bit of a splash with Nell in 1994 but truly needed to make another captivating movie worthy of classic status. And it is probably of no surprise that Panic Room in 2002 turned out to be yet another psychological thriller. Based on the novel by James Ellison, Panic Room tells the story of a mother who, with a daughter suffering from diabetes, has to fight for both her life and her offspring when three intruders break into their home searching for a valuable piece.

If Silence of the Lambs delivered tension in unpredictable moments, then Panic Room would be viewed at as the one where the twitchiness and suspense would not seemingly die down throughout. Special mention has to be given to a young Kristen Stewart for her performance playing the physically plagued young Sarah.

Although the determination and strength of Clarice Starling wasn’t evident until the last half of Silence of the Lambs, Meg Altman’s is displayed rather early. A game of cat and mouse, Altman thought fast on her feet and displayed enough intelligence to almost constantly outwit the burglars, who get more and more desperate!

Panic Room is definitely one to check out for those that love fast paced thrillers, but be warned! Those with low lung capacities may find it difficult to breathe!

Iris in Taxi Driver (1976)

The wheels of Jodie Foster’s career had already been rolling for several years before the opportunity to star in Taxi Driver came along, so when it did she took it firmly with both hands!

Playing a prostitute named Iris on the unwelcoming streets of New York City in the mid 1970’s, it was a role that was rather minimal for the new girl on the Hollywood block. Robert De Niro commanded much more screen time, and to be fair it is felt that there was perhaps a little too much vigor in Iris considering the situation that she is in.

Still, Taxi Driver was the indicator for things to come for Jodie Foster’s career and the movie wouldn’t be what it turned out to be without Martin Scorsese’s masterful direction of showcasing the dejection and general misery that the city projected. Special credit has to be given to Michael Chapman for his fitting cinematography that consisted of lifeless colours and demonstrating the isolation of De Niro’s Travis Bickle that eventually sends him on the path of destruction, but achieving salvation for Iris.

Could Actor Samuel L. Jackson Really Be Making A Move To Delaware?

Samuel-L-Jackson1

(PCM) It is always a bit surprising when an actor reveals plans to move away from all the glitz and glamour associated with living in Hollywood and settle down some place a bit more low key, however we can imagine that the fast-paced L.A. lifestyle could be exhausting at times.  It seems that it is getting to be too much for actor Samuel L. Jackson, who has recently claimed that he looking to move to the Wilmington, Delaware area.

Jackson commented during a recent interview that he was “tired of the L.A. lifestyle” and is in search of a big change in life. Jackson went on to say, “I’m just tired of the L.A. lifestyle and I feel like, at this point in my life, I’d rather just live in a place full of real, genuine people. I’ve been to Wilmington a couple of times over the years and the people there are real… they’re genuine, and yeah every community has its problems but the people there are good, decent people and they care about their community. Those are the things I find most important in deciding where to live.”

Jackson went on to reassure fans that he had no plans on retiring anytime soon and that he just felt that the change in life he is looking for could be found in the Wilmington area. We can’t lie and say that we don’t have a bias, as of course, PCM headquarters is based in lil ol’ Delaware, and yes, we always adore when celebrities show our home state some love!

Welcome to mother f**king Wilmington, Mr. Jackson! We certainly hope this turns out to be true!
