Porn stars & Goddesses: "The girl next door", "Sucker Punch", Ginger Lynn and Charlie Sheen

Elisha Cuthbert, Emile Hirsch and Chris Marquette in "The girl next door" (2004) directed by Luke Greenfield

"Sure, we had Can’t Hardly Wait and American Pie, Clueless and Ten Things I Hate About You, but it feels like the genre is still strangely empty. And then I remembered 2004’s The Girl Next Door. It’s not your conventional high school movie — it’s filled with gratuitous nudity, copious swearing, drug use, and all kinds of other fun stuff. It’s one of those films that I feel oddly guilty about liking… no. Fuck that. I love this flick.The story is rife with cliches, and perhaps worse, it fails to tackle any of the difficult choices or themes that are so obvious given the subject matter (Matthew is never bothered by Danielle’s sexual history and it doesn’t touch on any of the harsh realities of the adult film industry). And yet, it works.
That success is in large part due to Stuart Blumberg’s breezy, banter-filled and heartfelt screenplay. Blumberg, who also co-wrote this year’s excellent The Kids Are All Right and is currently working on adapting Jonathan Lethem’s outstanding novel Motherless Brooklyn, injects the film with just the right balance of raunchy sex humor and sweetly honest charm. It’s a weird combination that, with a few flashes of brilliance, works in spite of itself". Source: www.pajiba.com

"It's not hard to get the "incoming metaphor" message, so we're obliged to use a couple of brain cells to figure out the symbolism of placing a young woman in a mental institution that becomes a whorehouse that becomes a series of increasingly cheesy action movies.

A few possible interpretations are:

1. Insane people and sex workers are interchangeable.

2. Women can only triumph over adversity in their dreams.

3. Action movies spring from the imaginations of enslaved, mentally unstable prostitutes. Source: io9.com


"Everyone has by now heard about the manic, tough-talking Charlie Sheen, the sitcom actor who publicly insults his bosses and makes T-shirt-ready boasts of "winning" and having tiger blood. But former porn star Ginger Lynn says she got intimate with another side of TV's top-earning actor.
"There's a side of him that I don't think many people hear about" Lynn said -"Especially because right now, everyone's focusing on the negative. I have the soft, the considerate, the sensitive, the warm, the scared, the encouraging sides — I have all these sides of Charlie that no one's talking about."
A hand-written note "To Ging, From one Druggie to Another. Love- C," by Charlie Sheen is inscribed on a page inside the 1991 Consumer Report, The Complete Drug Reference, a gift from Sheen to Porn star Ginger Lynn after her drug incarceration.
There is a baseball cap from his beloved Cincinnati Reds, with Sheen's inscription on the brim. A signed, self-published book of Sheen's poetry. Intimate letters. A vest the actor wore in a film. A strand of pearls he bought her during a trip to Japan.
"Charlie has a very specific, individual, warped sense of humor, which I love", Lynn said from behind the desk of her home office in her spacious house on a Woodland Hills street dotted with handsome, $1-million-plus properties. But their relationship ended a long time ago. "I don't know Charlie today. I haven't seen him in over 15 years."
Referring to the items up for auction, she said: "There's someone out there who's going to appreciate these more than I do today."
Sheen — already a movie star thanks to acclaimed performances in "Platoon" and "Wall Street" — was smitten and pursued her aggressively, she said. But she agreed to a first date only in a group setting.In August 1990, Sheen showed up unexpectedly at her house with a playful love letter he'd written in rehab (now one of the items to be auctioned): "I'm sitting in bed writing to you from my penthouse suite at the Hotel du Cap. The view up here is incredible. I can see the Eiffel Tower, Mount Rushmore, Niagara Falls, Riverfront Stadium … and I can see you as well, which happens to be my favorite sight of all." He added: "I must admit that I cannot go through this alone. And so far you've been with me every step of the way." The couple decided to enter rehab together.
Lynn insists that despite numerous allegations of Sheen violence against wives and female companions, he never abused her.
"Not one time did he raise his vohce", she said. "No violence".

"Tickets to Charlie Sheen's one-man show, Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth, are selling briskly – and, in some cases, selling out –
"Charlie has hired some sort of coach to take his ramblings and form them into something more structured", the source adds. "He's also hired a musical director". Although Scoleri says Sheen, 45, remains "big on his manifesto", he won't be alone with a microphone on the stage. "There'll also be video components to the show, too", Scoleri reveals.
Still unclear – just how involved Sheen's so-called goddesses, Natalie Kenly and Rachel Oberlin, will be. Oberlin's rep tells PEOPLE that she will be taking part in the performance, though would not reveal details. Meanwhile, Scoleri says he "can't confirm or deny if [Sheen will] have the goddesses on the show, but he likes having them around".
Scoleri does say about Sheen, "He's one of the most creative people I've ever met in my life. If you want Charlie Sheen, you'll get vintage Sheen with this show. The guy's a media juggernaut". Source: www.people.com
