For The Stans: Beyonce Might Actually Make A Good Movie By Accident

Beyonce

Even Illuminati Hov knowns wifey can’t act worth a damn. That doesn’t mean his connects can’t get Beyonce some serious looks in Hollyweird.

Beyonce Knowles just got a major break in her longtime bid for an Oscar: Clint Eastwood has signed on to direct her in the Warner Bros. update of “A Star Is Born.”

Eastwood’s announcement more than solidifies the flick, which has seen several incarnations over the past year (or years) with various directors and male talent attached (Beyonce has long been the female lead in mind).

Last February a short list of names including Russell Crowe, Sean Penn and Robert Downey Jr. were circulating to play opposite the pop sensation, as an alcoholic superstar in love with Knowles’ budding singer.

A current short list includes varied types like Will Smith, Eddie Murphy and Jon Hamm, according to Deadline Hollywood.

Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson brought the tale to life in 1976, earning permanent spots in pop culture for their efforts. Streisand won a Golden Globe for her acting performance and best original song but saw Oscar love only in the original song category.

Knowles, wife of rap mogul Jay-Z, has always been open about her Academy Award aspirations. In 2009, she told Self magazine that the thought of snatching that trophy motivated everything down to her fitness.
Referring to a painting of the Oscar that hangs above her treadmill, she said, “I look at it, and I’m like ‘OK, I have to stay in shape.'”

But now Beyonce has another chance at bat — and under the direction of Eastwood, she could transcend her previous high-camp fare (“Obsessed”) and pop-culture cakewalks (“Austin Powers in Goldmember”). Eastwood won directing Oscars for “Million Dollar Baby” and “Unforgiven” and was nominated in that category for “Mystic River” and “Letters From Iwo Jima.”

We can’t even hate on Bey’s movie come up: Clint Eastwood wouldn’t attach his name to some bullsh*t.

  • November30

    Random Fact: Everything that Clint touches doesn’t turn into Oscar gold. And he won awards with those films because he had REAL ACTORS in them.
    And Bey thinks she’s up for an Oscar in EVERY ROLE she plays. LOL!Sad thing that no one told her yet. LOL!

  • Glok...Mein Kampf Mah Fukkaz in 2012 !!!

  • jay/bey true fan

    Say what you may, but Beyonce did a damm good job in “Dreamgirls”. She did a very good job in “Cadalic Records” and didn’t do to bad in “Obbessed”. She may not be the best actress out, but she is a good actress in the making. Also I think Robert Downing Jr, Russel Crowe or even Terrence Howard would be good for the role cast as her husband. Yes I hope she really do get her due Oscar for this role because she should have recieved her Oscar when she did Dreamgirl’s and Cadalic Records, true statement.

    • Whatev

      LOL!!!!! Why don’t you just line up all the real actors and slap them all in the face. Beyonce is not even mediocre as an actress. Children in middle school plays are better.

  • MissLayDee

  • Punta

    WAT AN INSULT TO REAL ACTRESSES

    • sisiouatt

      yessssss! clint eastwood is becoming crazy!! beyonce what?!!
      a girl that cant sing dance at the same time?

    • Whatev

      I know, I just lost respect for Clint. Maybe he wants to get acknowledged by the young generation.

  • Kim

    Nah, she just doesn’t have it, they probably will need to take her through some speech therapy in order for her to be believable.

  • kadija1982

    correct me if im wrong but in order for someone to act dont they need to know how to articulate and form sentences properly first? and why is she always playing a singer, cant she do something different for a change. beyonce is just too ambitious for my liking there are so many professional trained actresses who would be great for the role but beyonce must scoop up everything. and she calls herself a legend, a legend doesnt shove themself down everyones throat.

    • Whatev

      Yes. Thank you. WE will tell you if you become a legend. Don’t tell us.

  • afro british

    Give the girl a chance, we all learn thru experience. The more experience she gets the better,this negativity needs to stop people. England loves Beyonce

  • wannafightaboutit

    I knew Beyonce was jealous of Jennifer Hudson when she won her oscar. Beyonce should just leave acting alone because she aint no d@mn good at it. She puts on a helluva show tho, but I guess that’s not enough for her.

  • kidluv

    all imma say on this is…shes getting another chance to prove herself…maybe JUST MAYBE she’ll get that Oscar this time round.

  • Timmi-cakes

    She still won’t will and Oscar! B*tch can’t act!! That’s all there is to it. You can’t just create talent. It was obviously never there in the first place. They should focus on getting J-Lo her oscar, get that Penelope Cruz swag. Now she can act!

  • the 1 watcher

    what ever happened to Lauren Hill playing that part? was rumored to be hers years ago.

  • hovi baby

    do your thang baby

  • we4she

Clint will bring out whateve is in her (think Hillary Swank)and she’ll finally get what’s hers …another cog in Bey Domination!!Go Bey!! and for all ya’ll that can’t stand it? you can always buy a Keisha Cole record, huh?

  • we4she

    Also …I listen to the “She needs to sit down and let somebody else shine” bull-malarkey …hmmm ..I wonder if Intel said “We have all the processors in almost all the computers ..we need to take a break, let CYRIX shine” Nope …or …” I know we have software on 90% of the computers on the planet; Microsoft is gonna kick back and let Sun shine” Hell NO!! They are number 1 for a reason …never back down and never get off the grind …I expect the same from all MY people, including Bey …Never retreat ..never surrender …DOMINATE!!!
