Does A-lister refer strictly to movie stars, or can celebrities on hit TV shows also be included in the term?
Absolutely not. As I've reported in the past, the only true A-listers are movie stars who can, in old Hollywood parlance, "open" a picture. Will Smith is an A-lister. Blake Lively, despite that Vanity Fair cover that had her frolicking triumphantly in her underwear, is not. Onward, with more of your Burning Q's!
When will the Sex and the City DVD be released?
To the estimable Answer B!tch, whose blazing wit we all know and love: My question is actually about your b!tchling, or more specifically, his allegedly glorious topknot. Could we possibly get a visual? Also: What is the average salary of a production worker, like a gaffer, in Hollywood?
—Kat S., Seattle
About the topknot: He's pomading it as we speak. As for average salaries, gaffers can make between $30,000 and $70,000 yearly—much more if they work on big-budget films. Grips make $50,000 and up. (Key grips can make six figures a year.) Other production workers, like assistants, can make much less, in the $500 weekly range, if that.
What ever happened to Sarah Michelle Gellar? Will she ever get into a major movie?
Yes—well, at least, her voice will get into a major movie. Listen for Sarah's voice opposite Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta in the animated Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey, in 2010.
Would you mind telling people about the new petition asking NBC to keep Jay Leno on The Tonight Show? I really don't want to have to deal with Conan. Thanks B!tch!
Well, all right. You did it for me. Now you do me a favor. Or, rather, do yourself a favor. Become my fan on Facebook!
