Matthew Vaughn is kinda flaky, so it wasn’t all that weird when he stepped away from directing the sequel to ‘X-Men First Class’ 2 weeks ago (he was quickly replaced by Bryan Singer). It will be even less weird if todays rumor from Collider is true and he did it because he was offered the job to direct ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′.
And though he’s a great director and would be a terrific choice, it’s still just a rumor for now. And now, we play the Waiting Game. (pause) Aw, the Waiting Game sucks. Let’s play Hungry Hungry Hippos!
Claudia Schiffer, whose husband Matthew Vaughn may or may not have gotten January Jones pregnant while they were making ‘X-Men: First Class’, dropped their kids off at school this morning in London, and the reason she looks so sad is because the other kids taunted her with “fatty fat fat fat” as she left. And rightfully so. But things got better after that when she showed Obi Wan how the clone army was made. “Very impressive,” he exclaimed!
Allegedly. I probably should have included the word “allegedly” in the headline but it’s not as dramatic that way.
To recap: January Jones is pregnant but won’t say who the father is, and the reason she’s being such a good girl is because the guy is married and they had an affair while filming ‘X-Men: First Class’.
Well, word on the street is that the father is director Matthew Vaughn, who has been married to Claudia Schiffer since 2002, and seemingly happily so since they have 3 kids together, including one just last year.
In the headline and below are pictures of Claudia this morning in London. After that are January last night at the fancy ‘X-Men’ red carpet premiere in New York. I would have included a picture of January and Matthew together, but he didn’t go. He didn’t go to the premiere of his own movie. That’s mildly suspicious. But if he’s in London with his wife, this will look way better in the police report when January has a little “accident”.
UPDATE – E! is now “exclusively” saying the same thing. 3 hours after I did.
SCARLETT JOHANSSON – is 26, and she’s “smitten” with Sean Penn, who is 50. Obviously Penn is a jackass but I hope I can still nail girls half my age when I’m 50. And that my wife won’t be all cunty about it. (us)
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS – will release it’s first trailer today, though it probably won’t be that great considering how far behind schedule this movie is. It comes out June 3rd and they’re still filming. At least they have a great director in Matthew Vaughn, so maybe he can pull this off. And maybe I’ll nail Megan Fox in the ass today. Pretending sure is fun. (facebook)
JENNIFER ANISTON – wants to move to Manhattan. Aww, but I finally move back to LA next month. And now she’s getting a house in New York? There’s no way I can throw a rock that far. (us)
ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO – is 29, and a mom, but thanks to things like this pilates class yesterday in Venice, she’s still the best looking girl on earth. It’s almost hard to believe how pretty she is. Like, if she rode there on a Pegasus, it would sort of make sense. (pacific coast)
‘Kick Ass’, directed by the great Matthew Vaughn, has a new red band trailer focusing on Hit-Girl, a 12-year-old superhero who fights crime by shooting bad guys in the face or chopping off their legs. She’s just slightly more hardcore than I was at 12, when my 2 coolest qualities were a 9:30 bedtime and a 3D horse poster.
