Martin McCutcheon: She's not bitter
Another lazy, long weekend for Celebritish (we wish) but we're back now with all the freshest celebrity guff.
Martine McCutcheon has revealed she only left Los Angeles because it was "brutal".
Nope, it's nothing to do with the fact work dried up after her one commission – a never to be broadcast TV show – it's down to the US movie industry and Martine has an axe to grind (well, a girls gotta work):
"Once you do three movies, you’re over.”
Hmm well if you consider Love Actually is probably only about a tenth American this means she managed 0.333% of her allotted time in the limelight. It must be a record!
"Even Cameron Diaz is old hat now."
Yes, Cameron probably isn't getting as much work as she once was but two Hollywood blockbusters a year is arguably better than a 10th of one in your entire career. We'd go for Cameron's old hat over Martine's Echo Beach every time.
On the day "Norbit" gets nominated for an Oscar (admittedly it's for best makeup but still...) perhaps Hollywood does deserve some scorn but we're sure there must be someone with a better CV to do the job? Where's Holly Valance when you need her?
