Rosamund Pike Will Kiss T. Cruise, Disney Admits What We Depressingly Already Know, and More...

When you're making tentpole films, bullshit." Of his studio's own huge tentpole, Alice in Wonderland, he added, "The story isn't very good, but visual spectacle brought people in droves. And Johnny Depp didn't hurt." This guy is totally just like Warren Beatty in Bulworth--except depressing, because I'm pretty sure he's bragging. (via)
