Dear Movie Lover,

Worldwide Attention Trumps Cover of Vogue Magazine
Miley Cyrus's  twerking (a combo of the words twist and jerk) on the MTV Music Awards plus her new music video Wrecking Ball that premiered on MTV September 9th are said to be the catalysts causing Vogue editrix Anna Wintour  to boot Ms. Miley off the mag's coveted cover.
Worth it? Guess so, when you factor in the fact that Ms.Miley's video broke the record for the most viewed MTV clip ever---19 million in just 24 hours. Next up, a documentary Miley: The Movement on MTV October 2nd. All a run-up to the release of the new Miley Cyrus album Bangeiz set for October 8th.

Speaking of Body Parts...
Brad Pitt Parts
With His Ponytail

 It was now you see you don't, Pitt ponytail-wise.
Just a few days ago at the Toronto Film Festival, Brad's long and highlighted locks were pulled back for the red carpet premiere of 12 Years As A Slave.
When next seen filming on the English countryside set of his newest film, Fury, the forty-nine year old actor was shorn to nearly a buzz cut. The locks were sacrificed for art and Pitt's role as an Army sergeant named Wardaddy in the WWII film.
In love with the locks? Not to worry, Movie-goers.
Hair Grows!
Still Going Strong---Jennifer Anniston Gem

The Anniston rom-com has taken in about $130 million domestically...and still counting. See this movie. It's one of the few films one can enjoy. Just for the fun of it!

Star Turn:
Matthew McConaughey 

His Weight Loss Is All for a Good Cause---
The Starring Role in Dallas Buyers Club
After more than two decades in development, The Dallas Buyers Club arrived at the Toronto Film Festival for its worldwide premiere on September 7th. The AIDS drama tells the story of Ron Woodruff who spent six years smuggling unapproved AIDS drugs into the US for the customers who became known as the Dallas Buyers Club.
McConaughey dropped over forty pounds to portray Woodruff. But in doing this film he had more at stake than weight loss. The actor, who made favorable impressions in Dazed and Confused and A Time to Kill, was coming off a list of underwhelming big studio rom-coms. So he did what most actors in his position would consider unimaginable. He turned down $15 million to play the lead in Magnum P.I.
In so doing, Matthew McConaughey has engineered one of the most effective career comebacks for an actor in recent times. Especially in light of the Oscar buzz he is generating for Dallas Buyers Club. That's capping a run of indie films that began in 2011, including the acclaimed Mud that debuted this past spring.
Theorizes McConaughey:"Taking a year and a half off and saying no to things made me a good new idea. Sometimes the target draws the arrow." Says one source familiar with McConaughey's career strategy, "He was bored. He didn't want to be seen as the shirtless guy anymore."
The actor says his focus now is on personal experience and the process over results. Before Dallas'
strong reception in Toronto, he was asked how he would feel if the AIDS drama isn't accepted by audiences. "Do I want it to be received well? Damn right. But if it doesn't, would that take anything away from the experience? Absolutely not. I got my self-satisfaction from what I did."
Did You Know? Celebrity TidBits
More Cover Girl Controversy: Gwyneth Paltrow, This Time.
And this time it's Ms. P who says she'll pass. Seems the blonde beauty has emailed a number of friends with the message: "Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover. If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline." It appears a number of stars, publicists, celebrities and the like don't care for VF's "harder-edge" profiles and will no longer be cooperating with its editors.
Chaz Bono Shows Off Weight Loss. Congratulations!
Appearing on CBS-TV's The Doctors, Cher's 44-year old son showed off the big change in his life;
shedding more than 65 pounds.
Opening up about his dramatic weight loss journey during the past year, Bono commented, "I just feel more comfortable in my own skin. Everything is physically easier. Everything feels better and emotionally, I just feel more comfortable, more confident."
The former Dancing with the Stars contestant credited his family with inspiring him to get in better shape. "My family was concerned about my health and now everyone is really happy."
Especially, according to Bono, Cher, his Mom.
Congrats, Too, To Alec Baldwin and Lovely Wife, Hilaria
Welcome to their Baby Girl Carmen. If you've enjoyed (like so many of us) Alec Baldwin on 30 Rock and on his many jocular TV commercials, don't miss his show on MSNBC Friday
nights at 10PM (EDT)
