Julianne Moore is Set to Become the Most Terrifying Mother in Cinematic History

Finally! After months of mental prick and clit teasing, Julianne Moore has finally, officially, signed on to play the tyrannical mother in the highly anticipated remake of Carrie. It's not the first time she's taken on the classics — playing Lila Crane in Gus Van Sant's 1998 take on Psycho — and if Chloe Moretz in the lead wasn't proof enough that they're going to do a good job of it then Moore's signature certainly seals the deal. But what can we expect? Well, not the apparent cakewalk that was the original, says Moretz, this one is going to get darker. "It's darker and much more psychological. More Black Swan," she said. "You're really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It's set in modern time, so it's a lot different." [The Sun]

Considering her drug and baby doll-clad past it was probably more like a real-life flashback than pedestrian anxiety attack, but Courtney Love freaked the fuck out at the scores of "identical blond models in pink nighties" who were "taking pills, writhing on a couch or smoking cigarettes" at interactive play Sleep No More's latest spinoff, The Forgotten. "You'd turn a corner and suddenly there'd be another girl up against the wall. Walking through, Courtney started saying, ‘Get me out of here. I have to get out of here!'" said an onlooker, another adding, "She bolted for the exit, albeit the wrong one — mid-performance — which did nothing to calm her anxiety. All these models acting like pill-crazed lunatics then came out of character to console her. She felt trapped and claustrophobic." It sounds genuinely terrifying. [Page Six]
