Firstly, sorry it’s taken me a few days to make this post! It’s packed full of goodies though, so lots for you to browse.
As you probably remember, Nic attended the New York City premiere of Just Go With It on Tuesday, along with all of her co-stars. She was accompanied by her husband, and looked vampy in a black leather skirt suit by L’Wren Scott! I added 183 HQs from the premiere to the Gallery the other day, and there are more to come! And scroll down this post for some articles and videos from the night.
What do you think about Nic’s look here?
‘Just Go with It’ Premiere
In “Just Go with It,” Adam Sandler plays a guy who pretends to be married to woo chicks. But when he meets the one he thinks is a keeper, he tries to convince her he’s getting a divorce. Jennifer Aniston plays his fake wife.
The two megawatt stars were all smooches at the premiere in New York. They’ve been friends for more than 20 years.
Their friendship goes back before Sandler’s “SNL” days, but Jen’s a little foggy on the funny man’s work.
Swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker makes a bikinilicious movie debut.
Nicole Kidman sports a bikini in the film too.
Rocker Dave Matthews plays Kidman’s husband.
Red carpet war of words
Dan Patrick assess the ‘Just Go With It’ cast
Dan Patrick has spent the bulk of his career reporting on competitions for the likes of CNN and ESPN, but his expert judgments went unwanted at Tuesday’s preem of Columbia’s “Just Go With It.”
Patrick plays the judge of a hula contest in the Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston comedy, and during filming he says he was quite impressed with bit player Nicole Kidman. “If you see Kidman, Kidman is an athlete,” he said outside Ziegfeld’s, referring to the hula competish with Aniston.
Helmer Dennis Dugan found Patrick’s remarks ill-advised. “If I were Dan, I wouldn’t say that when Jennifer Aniston comes walking by because she’ll take Dan down,” he quipped. “Jennifer Aniston is way tougher than Dan Patrick.”
As the hula contest was filmed, another competition of sorts transpired on set in the form of a swear jar. Again Patrick offered his insights, identifying the biggest culprit. “I think Dave Matthews,” he said. “Dave Matthews – potty mouth.”
“He’s just saying that,” Matthews countered. “Dan Patrick is a filthy pig. He’s the filthiest pig I ever met in my life and that’s saying a lot. Seriously, he is a filthy pig.”
Keeping Warm at the “Just Go With It” Premiere
You’d never knKeeping Warm at the “Just Go With It” Premiereow that temperatures in New York City were below freezing as the stars of “Just Go With It” strolled down the bright-blue carpet at the world premiere of that new comedy on Tuesday, Feb. 8. For it looked like summer in the city as the film’s tanned leading lady, Jennifer Aniston, posed prettily in a strapless, filmy black Dolce & Gabbana gown, complete with a train, inside the warm and cozy Ziegfeld Theater in midtown.
Adam Sandler joined her on the carpet and co-stars in the movie, which was mostly filmed in Hawaii and Southern California, and is based on the classic 1969 comedy “Cactus Flower,” the one that starred Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman and Goldie Hawn. Hawn took home her only Academy Award for her role as the girlfriend who unknowingly believes that her boyfriend is married, since that’s what he pretends to keep his distance from commitment. In this new version, gorgeous Brooklyn Decker takes over that role, showing off her considerable assets as the movie unfolds. At the premiere, Decker also chose Dolce & Gabbana, hers a plunging animal-print cocktail dress paired with sky-high heels.
Academy Award winner and current nominee Nicole Kidman also stars in the comedy, but you would never know it from the advertising campaign. She’s flying under the radar in this one, but happily brought her husband, country singer Keith Urban, to join Aniston, Sandler and Decker for the festivities. The other actors in the comedy, singer/actor Dave Mathews, Kevin Nealon and the youngsters who play Aniston’s two children in the flick, Bailee Madison and Griffin Gluck, also made the scene, along with director Dennis Dugan, who has directed Sandler’s last few films, including “Grown Ups.”
Ziegfeld Theater Hosts Premiere For New Sandler/Aniston Film
The new Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston movie “Just Go With It” premiered at the Ziegfeld Theater in Midtown this week.
“I lie to women,” said Sandler of his character. “I get women and my lie gets me in trouble and then Aniston’s got to get me out of it.”
Aniston, who plays Sandler’s assistant, masquerading as his soon-to-be ex-wife, says she prefers one island over one island over another.
“As of right now it’s Kauai, but,” Aniston said when asked if she prefers Manhattan or the Hawaiian island.
In the film, Nicole Kidman, who was escorted at the premiere by husband Keith Urban, is married to rocker Dave Mathews.
“It was good,” said Kidman. “My husband was there all the time and he got to talk about music, you know. But Dave’s kind of, he’s a quirky, fun guy.”
When Mathews isn’t singing, he’s imitating NY1 Society reporter George Whipple.
“Good God, I’m George Whipple!” Matthews joked. “I can’t believe I’m talking to George Whipple! You’re George Whipple! I can’t eat your left over jelly beans! And you’re George Whipple!”
Making her film debut is model Brooklyn Decker, who had a hard time when asked to chose between the movie’s two male stars – Sandler and Matthews.
“Oh, gosh! I mean I’m so close to Adam, I would say Adam,” she said. “But I grew up, I’ve been to 19 Dave Matthews Band concerts, so I’m a massive Dave fan.”
“Just Go With It” hits theaters this weekend.
Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston Discuss Box-Office Showdown With Justin Bieber
The palm trees, tiki-themed decorations and ocean-blue carpet at the Tuesday-night premiere of Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s “Just Go With It” didn’t fool anyone: Despite a tent meant to keep the winter at bay, it was freezing outside the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York, a far cry from the sunny Hawaiian clime in which much of the romantic comedy takes place.
Yet Sandler, Aniston and their co-stars projected nothing but warm vibes as they made their way past a massive throng of photographers and toward an equally long line of TV and print journalists. Days from now, this new flick — a comedy of errors in which Sandler convinces Aniston to pretend to be his wife in a wild scheme to secure the affections of Brooklyn Decker — opens up against Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never.” This weekend at the box office is setting up to be a compelling clash between teen heartthrob and established big-screen players, but Aniston is approaching the whole thing blissfully unaware — or so she liked to joke when MTV News asked her about the face-off.
“Who?” she asked when the topic of Bieber came up.
Sandler stepped in with a little intro to the “Never Say Never” star. “Nice little kid. He sings,” he explained. “He grew up in front of our eyes. He’s a handsome boy.”
“Very handsome,” Aniston added, suddenly finding herself with a case of Bieber Fever.
For moviegoers on the fence this weekend, Sandler suggested catching a double feature at the multiplex. “We don’t start fights with people. You can go to both,” he said. “We’ll go to Justin’s movie. We’ll show some respect to that kid and his family — get him some more money.”
“Yeah! I hear he’s hurting,” deadpanned Aniston.
Others in the cast were more forthcoming about the prospect of opening up against “Never Say Never.” “It’s hard. We’re nervous,” Decker admitted. “I love myself some Justin Bieber, so I’m not going to bash anyone who goes to see that movie. I will say I love our movie!”
Dave Matthews, who co-stars as Nicole Kidman’s absurdly pretentious husband, was even more blunt. “That’s going to blow everything out of the water. Justin Bieber is going to blow everything out of the water for a few years,” he told us. “That’s what I expect — and deservedly so. What better than Bieber to blow everything out of the water? I expect nothing but my daughter’s devotion to him and I will support it absolutely.”
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler Still Have Football Fever
Longtime pals and ‘Just Go With It’ co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler walked the red carpet for the premiere of their new comedy and dished on their exciting Super Bowl experience!
“[Sandler] gave me some of the best advice, which was ‘You need to bet on a team,’” said the former “Friends” star. “I was out of my mind.”
Nicole Kidman also stars in the movie and even though she has more experience in dramas versus comedies, the actress told us that she managed to keep a straight face through takes.
“It wasn’t hard because I had to do this ridiculously obnoxious character but I just loved working on it,” said Kidman.
‘Just Go With It’ opens Friday, February 11.
