Moira Cue & Phoebe Price Stars in Episode #2 of Comedic Webisode Hollyweird!

Hollyweird! Episode #2

Controversial celebrity Phoebe Price; widely photographed on the red carpets around the world, and actress, singer and artist Moira Cue, takes on Ted Cruz, space travel, and tabloid blogger Perez Hilton among more, in Episode #2 of the ongoing comedic webisode called “Hollyweird!” Produced and written by Hollywood Sentinel publisher and Starpower Management founder Bruce Edwin, Hollyweird! Episode #1 starred Lindsay Lohan father Michael Lohan, in which he saw an image of Jesus on his toast. Moira Cue then proceeds to take a bite out of the iconic manifestation.

Episode #2 of the comedy returns with its wild, zany, slapstick humor, starring sexy Phoebe Price–known for her wild,  racy outfits and daring poses, and with Moira Cue, recognized for her cutting edge art and music, whose paintings are  in the collection of numerous stars. Produced by Bruce Edwin, also publisher of the music magazine ‘subnormal,’ states of the series, “Hollyweird’ is a partly scripted and part real life story about the crazy life behind the scenes, living and working in Hollywood. It also  fearlessly makes fun of everyone who takes themselves too seriously, including myself!”

Directed by Award Winning cinematographer and director Jessica Gallant, whose work has been praised by ‘Variety,’ Make Up artist Kim Williamson also brought her artistic flair to the stars appearances.  Filmed on location at a secret spot in Beverly Hills, California, numerous fans quickly gathered around the celebrities during shooting, yet politely did not try to intrude.

Once, accidentally left off of a guest list for an event, Phoebe Price famously and comically referred to the publicist of the event as one of those little P.R #@#@#@#,  in her timeless Southern accent. Hollyweird! #2 starring Pheobe Price and Moria Cue comedically plays on that notorious line, going after all paparazzi in a playful, funny way.  Hollyweird #2  also tackles the Pope, Ted Cruz, and other current political events among more.

The greatest things can be ruined by people that like to create problems, or have a negative attitude.  And people with the most potential can have that potential destroyed or stifled by those around them who create such drama, and havoc.  Having been a model and talent manager for over a decade, and now also a film producer and art dealer, I see time and time again, good people with good intentions and good deals or great talent, ruined by contact with the jealous, oppressive, or otherwise just nuts.  In fact, I have stated over and over, that one of the top 3 reasons people fail in Hollywood, is because they are surrounded by or are around at least one person who is jealous, invalidating, bullying, or psychotic. Getting rid of these people that are not only deal killers, career killers, and dream killers, but also health and life killers, is oftentimes, no easy task. They will often get their claws into a person so tight, fighting like mad to not let go, that they will make a person bleed, at least emotionally, before they can be flung off. Michael Jackson was surrounded by such parasites, and one of them ended up behind bars for a short while. And we all know how it turned out with Michael Jackson.

My first job as a film producer, talent manager, and art dealer is, after examining the deal, to research who is connected to it, and their level of honesty, integrity, and sanity. I have had to walk away from many great talents that could have been stars, and many multi-million dollar deals, because they were contaminated with toxic people that had evil intentions. When a person or business is under the influence of someone with evil intentions, or who is crazy, they will not prosper, they will fail.

The old adage of how one bad apple can spoil the bunch here rings true. It has been proven that our condition in life is generally reflected by the top 5 people we have relationships with. If your top 5 people you spend your time with are poor, mean, struggling, and negative, chances are your life will be like that too. However, if one’s top 5 people they surround them self with are happy, positive, successful, and always progressing, then that energy will generally rub off on you, and your life will often take that upward trend as well, as long as you model their behavior in good ways, and make it your own, applying the positive aspects to your own life and work.

One musician I recently met, who is talented, admitted to me that she was ‘jaded.’ This is another word for bored, tired, and lacking enthusiasm, or having a bad attitude or bad outlook on things in a certain area. I knew immediately she would most likely not be someone I wanted to deal with. After a short conversation, she rudely turned down an idea I had to get her work to some top, star musicians I know that could have helped her. She also later wrongly stated that I accused her of something that I did not accuse her of, but merely asked her about, during my investigation of her work. In other words, her sense of reality was distorted, because she was stuck in the past, dwelling on one area that made her ‘jaded,’ which caused her to not be able to handle current reality, and to lie. After less than 60 minutes, I knew I would not sign her, whereas had she not been so crazy, I know I could have helped her greatly.

It is true that ‘we are our own worst enemies’ when things are bad. If bad people are ruining one’s life, one has to realize this, admit it, and take responsibility for it. It is ultimately our decision of who we allow around us. So if someone is killing your dreams, you need to stop looking at them, and look at yourself, for letting them in. Be prepared to get away if they are too crazy and refuse to straighten out. And if you are not involved with them to begin with, don’t even waste your time–life is too short to deal with needless drama and problems you don’t have to have.

Be your own best friend, and demand that those around you live up to your expectations that you set for yourself. And make sure that you live up to them too. Be a person that keeps their word, that looks for the positive, that focuses on the good, that has a ‘success’ oriented attitude. Avoid dwelling on the past, and becoming ‘jaded.’ The world has enough problems, and enough jerks.  And if you are really that bored, you can turn on the news and watch all of this from a distance, in the form of a politician.  You don’t need to bring it home. As I say in Hollywood, “The only drama I want to have is on the silver screen!”

Snow White and the Huntsman

The fantastical world of Snow White and the Huntsman expands to reveal how the fates of The Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, an epic action-adventure in which they are joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, as well as director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in a new tale in the legendary saga.

Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Emily Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Jessica Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love.

When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable…unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.

Academy Makes Room for Confronting Abuse

Oscar®-nominee Brie Larson arrives at The 88th Oscars® at the Dolby® Theatre in Hollywood, CA on Sunday, February 28, 2016.

Brie Larson Won The Oscar® for Best Actress in a Leading Role, for her compelling performance in the intense motion picture ROOM. Held captive for years in an enclosed space, a woman (Brie Larson)  and her 5-year-old son (Jacob Tremblay) finally gain their freedom, allowing the boy to experience the outside world for the first time, in the film ROOM, which is based partly on a true story.

The following is an interview with Brie Larson Backstage at The Oscars, discussing this intense motion picture, and her advice to others aspiring to achieve their dreams. While we don’t know Ms. Larson personally, she sounds like a very lovely person, concerned not only with making the right choices as an actress, but as a human being concerned with the spirit, and the truth. Congratulations Brie.

Backstage at The Oscars®– An Interview with Brie Larson

Question:  (…)What advice would you give to people who haven’t achieved their dreams yet?

Brie Larson:  Oh, any dream?

Question:  Any dream.

Brie Larson: Any dream.  Oy, that’s a hard one.  You just have to do it.  I mean, I wish that there was any sort of rules or code, but in fact, I think the way you get there is by breaking it, by listening to what’s happening inside of yourself.  I personally had many moments of crossroads, probably hundreds of moments of crossroads where I could go the way that people were telling me to go, or I could go the way that felt right within me.  And it took me 20 years to be standing here on this stage, but I wouldn’t want it any other way:  To be so grateful for all of the hardships that it took to get here and to not be discouraged by it.  I think to live this life it’s a bizarre combination of being plastic and incredibly stubborn and also really curious about what this life holds; to have no expectation, but to have an idea about a beautiful horizon that’s in front of [you and–and you] constantly moving towards it.

Question: (…)  What does your Oscar win say for all of the victims out there who have been victimized?

Brie Larson: (…) in the core of it when we want to talk about feeling trapped, and that can be trapped in a way that is metaphor or a physical representation of that, we want to talk about abuse, the many different ways that we as humans can be abused or feel confined.  I hope that this is a story that honestly changes people and allows them to be free.  To me, making this movie was my own search for freedom and breaking free of my own personal boundaries.  And I hope that when people watch this, they realize that they have it in themselves to break free of whatever it is that’s holding them back.

Regarding the press as it relates to others, Brie Larson answered a question with a wise answer that can suitably apply to all. She stated;

 “We are sensitive, loving human beings that deeply at the core of ourselves are worried that we are unlovable.  And I think if we can constantly keep that in our heads (…) and try instead to get into the soul of a person, (…) we are people, and I think if we can get back to the humanity (…) we are going to go a long way, and we are going to get real truth (…)”
