Film Threat Unveils 50 Most Frigid In Hollywood

heath.jpgFilm Threat, the snarky, biting answer to the film industry’s constant inhouse sniping, opens its 50 Most Frigid in Hollywood with Heath Ledger and the politically incorrect, bad taste query: “Why so deceased?”

Heath Ledger was an actor on the climb, albeit a rather subtle one, to the upper ranks of his profession. While “10 Things I Hate About You” and “A Knight’s Tale” weren’t necessarily Oscar-contenders, at least one of them was based on Shakespeare. And while playing second fiddle to Mel Gibson in “The Patriot” wasn’t a star-making turn, playing the skin flute with Jake Gyllenhaal in “Brokeback Mountain” and playing pseudo-Bob Dylan in “I’m Not There” were worthy of increased respect and recognition. Everything was pointing up and Ledger’s role as the Joker was the prize fruit he’d been climbing towards.

The pesky mag goes on to bemoan:

Carmen Electra: Mindless tits and ass have their place in society, but her body has been duping people into paying for shit cinema for far too long, and it’s not even as if folks are paying to see her naked! We’re not saying the only good Carmen Electra is a naked Carmen Electra (okay, maybe we are), but how bad is it when Pamela Anderson is making more informed, and memorable, career decisions?

Pacino and De Niro: “Everybody said how great it was that De Niro was getting together with Pacino again after teaming up in ‘Heat,’ conveniently forgetting that one of the things that made ‘Heat’ so effective was the fact they were only in one scene together…”

Katherine Heigl: “It’s so simple it’s cliche, but if she doesn’t have anything nice to say, and she wants to keep working, she might want to shut up…”

You said it, Film Threat…
