A bit of Hollywood Industry News we’re reading today is:
Gossip website Pop Suga reports: “Michael Fassbender was in a joking mood last night following his London premiere of A Dangerous Method! Inside 34 restaurant, he danced around with a Burberry Prorsum-clad Keira Knightley and their costar Viggo Mortensen. Michael then sat at a piano to serenade the group that also included Keira’s mom Sharman Macdonald. He got a piggyback ride from a friend out to his car, then proceeded to mock-fight with a group of photographers. Keira made a more low-key exit with her Klaxons musician boyfriend James Righton.”
Sounds like one big cocaine movie star binge night out on Michael and Kiera’s part. Crazy London kids.

“I think I intended not to work again,” Kiera Knightly, 25 tells The UK’s Telegraph in a recent interview, describing filming back-to-back filming schedules for Pirates of the Carribean when she was 22.
Perhaps this is one of the reasons Kiera prefers to film outside of Hollywood where she can.
Really though most 25 year-old actors can’t relate to a comment like this right now–they’re all looking for a break, but good on ya Kiera for speaking your mind.
Emma Watson declared the same thing after wrapping Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows back-to-back filming schedule too. At the moment Watson has been recalled to reshoot scenes for Harry Potter 8, so these words from Kiera will be amusing Watson and getting her through, no doubt.
British starlets do appear to have decency standards they expect from their film franchise bosses to consider, by the looks. Good on them!

“She has a young Reese Witherspoon look and fresh-faced appeal about her as a potential child-actor of the future in Hollywood”–Horiwood on Hinetaapora Short.
A Diverse View of Hollywood worthy new talent potential:
Should Hinetaaporo Short, 10, be cast as the next Milky Bar Kid!
One of this kid’s X-factors in the entertainment game already, is that Hinetaapora speaks Te Reo Rangatira – The Language of Chiefs - otherwise known as the Maori language of New Zealand) each day, at her Kura Kaupapa school in Roto-Vegas/ Rotorua, Hiobbit country.
Te Reo Rangatira is one of the two official languages that Middle Earth, New Zealand protects and speaks within its shores.
Should Hinetaapora be the Milky Bar Kid for chocolate makers Nestle? Heck yes! What a bilingual, intelligent and talented cutie pai. Adorable. The Milky Bar Kid is a New Zealand child’s ‘super hero’ figure of inspiring Adventure and fun adventuring activities with friends and community–the great Kiwi Way. Just like Hobbits represent such cultural heroes too. A Maori girl super hero? Heck yes! It’s time. What a splendid idea at updating Kiwi pop culture in the 2010′s.
Will Hinetaapora go on to appear in Hobbit in 3D films in Wellywood too and Hollywood? I hope so! She’s a doll.
Go honey! Mauri ‘Ola from Hollywood. Let’s hope Hinetaapora can sign on to the same Hollywood agent as Oscar nominee, Keisha Castle Hughes. My Hollywood agent recommend though for Hinetaapora’s Hollywood acting hopes, is agent: Steve Dontanville. –the agent behind Reese Witherspoon’s acting career in Reese’s initial early years until two years before Reese won her Oscar.
Imagine Hinetaapora Short in a 3D action adventure film? Could she be another Reese Witherspoon, with the potential to win an Oscar too? Only time will tell. But, go kotiro tutu! I love her chutzpah. This kid has spirit. She’s off to a good start at ten years-of-age.
UPDATE: Hinetaapora Short is on the Nestle casting team’s Top Ten Short List at this minute. Go honey! You have Hollywood’s big tick approval. The gorgeous Hinetaapora short is a descendant of the Te Whanau a Hinetaaporo subtribe (Haapu) of Ngati Porou. She also descends from the Te Arawa iwi of Aotearoa/ New Zealand. The same tribe as famed and globally-loved entertainer, the late Sir Howard Morrison. The son of a Maori All Black rugby football star, Temuera Morrison , Sir Howard’s song My Old Man’s An All Black - combated and addressed apartheid in South Africa back in the day. He’s still a legend in hearts and minds today. Good Kiwi Ambassadors and proven entertainment stock are the performance artists of this tribe. They do the right things with their fame for noble humanitarian causes.
Hinetaapora’s Te Arawa tribe are watched by globe-trotting visitors to New Zealand, every day of the week in Rotorua City when they perform live daily as consummate and gifted entertainers. They star in musical theater showcases daily and have been practicing mau rakau (traditional Maori martial arts) for over a thousand years in New Zealand on Mokoia Island. As warriors in performance, they are New Zealand’s indigenous action stars. Very similar to Japanese samurai or Old-World warriors of the Chinese Empire dynasty too. Sir Howard, their much loved late Entertainer king, is pictured wearing his cowboy hat above.
Courage to imagine, see and be true to… yourself.
Message to H.S: Mihi atu ki a koe Hinetaapora… are you practicing your American accent and learning Chinese each morning for Hong Kong filmmaking, 3D action movie/ co-productions in future years, before school? Hope so! Ka rawe! Tino pai kē! Kid, you’re too much! :)

Kiera Knightly the actress who could bend a soccer ball like Beckham, then who traded in her soccer shorts for a restrictive corset to become famous in period films in Hollywood and the UK (Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise)–is quite the humorous artist.
Here’s Kiera donning a corset for film director, Stuart Pearson Wright in his short film Maze. Being a good sport, Kiera donated her A-List time on the film project and appears in Stuart’s film for free. Love her!
In Pearson Wright’s film, he appears with Kiera too. The viewer is asked to make a choice between ‘“romantic artist or fickle muse, earnest male or inconstant female.” Stuart met Knightley through mutual friend Rosamund Pike and designed the cover of David Thewlis’s 2008 novel, The Late Hector Kipling.
The British are so literary and classy! How can we not love their artistic tastes and sensibilites. I mean, really, they are so well humored it hurts! We can learn from that–while Kiera waits for her next blockbuster film moment.

We get it. She has nice cheekbones and the camera adds ten pounds etc… but she’s still just too thin.
And let’s not even talk about the oversized and lopsided photoshopping of Kiera’s head because that just brings on a whole other topic of all wrongness from Elle Magazine. :)
