Saturday Fluffernutter: Lindsay does Marilyn; Indy does Indy; The Curse of Roadhouse?

March 8th, 2008

The nutty stories from the fluffy world of celebrities.

Lindsay Lohan has recreated a series of Marilyn Monroe pictures done in 1962, which have come to be known as “the last sitting”. In the pictures Lohan poses nude or virtually nude in a series of unprovocative pictures. Bearing in mind that Lohan is 21 and Marilyn was 36 at the time of her shoot, Marilyn looked better. It takes, really, a fair bit of hubris to decide “I can channel Marilyn Monroe. I can imitate the most enduring sex symbol of the 20th century.” Unfortunately, Lohan has more hubris than the rest of the requisite talents to “do” Marilyn Monroe.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is due in theatres in three months, on May 22. The first trailer has been released and can be seen at the official Indiana Jones site:

He protected the power of the divine.
He saved the cradle of civilization.
He triumphed over the armies of evil…

Best line –
Indy’s associate (could that be Marcus?): “This ain’t going to be easy.”
Indy: “Not as easy as it used to be.”

Roswell New Mexico, Niagara Falls and those cheesy Indiana Jones special effects, this one looks like it has a bit of everything.

It is being reported that Patrick Swayze is fighting Pancreatic Cancer. Camp Swayze is denying reports that he is terminally ill, has lost 20 pounds and the cancer spread over the course of his chemotherapy. Unfortunately, far too often when rumours like this appear, the reports are accurate, the denial just that. Lets hope that Patrick Swayze truly is OK and progressing as well as his people say he is.

I am trying to decide whether Patrick Swayze’s cancer reports, coming the same week as his Roadhouse co-star Jeff Healey succumbed to cancer, is ironic or just a sick twisted coincidence. Either way it’s a sad testament to how pervasive this disease is. If not for Swayze saving the visual and Healey saving the audio, Roadhouse may have turned into one of the worst movies ever. Either way it was saved by two very good performers, both of whom we got bad news this week. I paid my respects to Healey when the news of his death emerged Sunday night so I won’t repeat myself. But I will mention that hearing much of the Healey music this week, I was reminded in retrospect he was an amazing guitarist and musician who, if the Gods granted fame and fortune based on talent alone, would have been a huge star. Truly one of the best, and I would add, a very underrated singer.
