Did Hacker Group ‘Anonymous’ Confirm Emma Watson as Anastasia Steele for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Movie? No.

An extremely zeitgeist-y piece of pseudo-news making the rounds on the Internet right now: former child Harry Potter star Emma Watson to show "just how much she's gown up" as protagonist Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film based on Twilight-inspired BDSM-lite "mommy porn" novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, as confirmed in studio documents leaked by notorious hacker group Anonymous. Look at that sentence. Obviously it's too delicious to be true. 

On March 6, Anonymous' German "branch" (the group functions in a loose, non-hierarchical way) posted a tweet announcing the hack of Constantin Film, a major German studio (the company produced the Resident Evil franchise). The attached document disclosed a list of internal email addresses, a set of administrative passwords for accessing the company's internal database and screenshots of two documents: 1) The file on a Reese Witherspoon project which ultimately wasn't picked up. 2) A crude jokey prank project Anonymous submitted to Constantin's servers.

I did not try logging into the studio's database because that is illegal and also the seeded accounts have almost certainly been shut down since the leak.

The Hollywood Reporter posted about the hack the following day. This sentence was buried in the article: "There was little that was new in the documents Anonymous stole — one has Emma Watson attached to star in Focus Features' upcoming 50 Shades of Grey adaptation, confirming a widely-reported rumor — while the majority involve projects that have been announced or otherwise reported."

The story took over a week to pick up steam. About an hour ago, I saw a headline claiming that Emma Watson was "confirmed" to play Ana from one of our celebrity partner sites. Jezebel posted about the story at noon today, with the headline: "Anonymous Says It’s Confirmed That Emma Watson Will Be the Big-Screen Anastasia Steele We All Deserve." Jezebel sourced The Hollywood Reporter's story; so did other outlets, including the The Detroit Free Press and USA Today

Rumors that Watson was attached to the Fifty Shades project have been around for awhile. "Has Emma Watson Been Cast As Anastasia Steele In 50 Shades Of Grey?!," Perez Hilton asked breathlessly last July. At the time, Watson adamantly denied she had even been approached about the project — "I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing." — but in Hollywood such denials are sometimes a euphemism for, "I'm negotiating."

However, IndieWire reports that "the actual leaked paperwork says 'Maybe Emma Waston' and was dated last fall," in which case the only thing that's been "confirmed" is that someone at Constantin Film at some point considered "maybe" casting the actress in the upcoming film. It would have been impossible not to consider her, after the maelstorm the rumor set off on the Internet.

The studio told the The Hollywood Reporter that all hacked documents were "out of date and widely accessible to many Constantin employees." So not exactly the Wikileaks of the film industry, unfortunately.

Update: At 2 p.m., USA Today recieved a statement from Universal Pictures (yet another studio involved with the film, Hollywood is an incestuous cesspool): "No one has been cast yet."

Candice Swanepoel Looks Her Best (EVER) on This 90s-Style Vogue Spain Cover (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Spain April 2013 - Candice SwanepoelCandice Swanepoel is undeniably gorgeous, but there’s something about the 90s-era supermodel styling on the cover of Vogue Spain’s April cover that takes her beauty to another level. In her high-waisted jeans and cropped top she looks like a Guess girl from the good ol’ days – in the best way possible. Forum members are unabashedly declaring that Candice has never looked better.

“This looks like a classic 90s cover, but somehow not dated at all. And Candice looks great,” SugarMe posted.

“Cover crush alert!” Valentine27 gushed. “Lovely styling and pose. I really appreciate the natural hair and soft makeup. It does give a nice 90s vibe. Candice looks absolutely impeccable. The best I've seen from her lately.”

“Man oh man I love this cover,” Elfinkova shared. “Like others have already mentioned this is so 90s, which I adore, but most of all I love the effortlessness of the image. Candice is perfect here and I'm unsure this would have worked with another model.”

All this praise and we haven’t even seen a high-quality version of the cover or editorial yet. Well played, Vogue Spain (even though you would do well to lose half the text that’s marring the image).

Nicki Minaj on the Cover of Elle: Is This the Best or Worst She’s Ever Looked? (Forum Buzz)

Elle April 2013 - Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj appears on the April 2013 cover of Elle as a more pared-down version of her usual over-the-top self, and though the images haven’t been available for long, they’re already the source of great debate among forum members. This Nicki Minaj Elle cover and accompanying editorial photos (styled by Joe Zee) presents one of those situations where there’s no middle ground. You either love it or hate it, and though I personally fall into the “love it” category, not all forum members would agree with me.

“Oh hell no…” Psylocke groaned. “How awkward to have a ‘Your prettiest hair in 2 minutes’ tagline on the cover when the cover subject has such a gross mess on her head. Also, why the depressing grey background à la US Vogue? Especially when you put Nicki Minaj on the cover? This all makes no sense.”

Miss Dalloway wasn’t a fan either. “This is horrible, I don't like anything about this cover,” she commented. “The unzipped jacket is so unnecessary and not something I wanted to see, and the hair is just nasty!”

MulletProof fell into a different camp. “Raunchy. I love you, Nicki,” she declared.

Visualoptimism posted: “It's actually not so bad! She looks pretty decent and her hair looks good just like that. I also really like the colors and the yellow font.”

I kind of love this stripped down version of Nicki. I think it’s great that she’s willing to put her self-made image aside and really succumb to the vision of magazine editors and stylists. She’s allowing them to express their artistic freedom and I respect that. She’s not hiding behind her makeup and she’s not afraid to sort of lift the veil and show us another side of her.

We’re Obsessed With This Vogue Australia Editorial (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Australia April 2013 - The Sweetest Thing featuring Cassi van den Dungen

Who knew bee-keeping could look so beautiful and romantic? Vogue Australia, that’s who. In a new editorial photographed by Will Davidson and styled by Jillian Davidson for the magazine's April 2013 issue (covered by Aussie go-to Miranda Kerr), models Cassi van den Dungen (who was the runner-up in the fifth cycle of Australia’s Next Top Model) and Lucas Pittaway make us fall for The Sweetest Thing. Forum members – including me – are completely smitten.

“I've been expecting a bee-inspired editorial since Alexander McQueen’s Spring collection and this is fantastic,” UpperEchelon commented.

“Whyyyyyyyyyy would you not put that on the cover?!?” HeatherAnne (who is not a Miranda Kerr fan) lamented. “Beautifully themed, styled, and Cassi looks stunning. I adore it,” she added.

Swizzi declared, “The Sweetest Thing is incredible – I can almost feel and hear the bees flying around! The atmosphere in that editorial is mesmerizing. Well done!”

Neely also heaped on the praise: “I am completely in love with The Sweetest Thing!” she exclaimed.“The colors and tones of the photos work wonderfully. And the opening shot = magnificent!”

Magnificent pretty much sums it up. And on another note, why can’t our supposed Next Top Models reach these kinds of heights? I blame Tyra.
