Harry Dean Stanton Feuded With Bette Midler On The Rose

wu1ftc0 Stanton played a small role in the 1979 filmThe Rose” as a famed singer whose work is idolized by the title character played by Bette Midler. His character insults The Rose and asks her not to perform his songs. Stanton perhaps took the role a little bit to an extreme and began insulting Midler. On the recent Criterion Collection reissue of the film, Midler waxes fondly about all the cast, but still seems comically resentful of Stanton; she did, after all, once have a production company called “We Hold a Grudge Productions.” (Gold Derhy)

Bette Midler on smoking for Sue Mengers role

[Bette Midler on smoking for Sue Mengers role] The cigarettes nearly killed me. I answer the phone now and people calling think it’s my husband. And my allergies in that theater – it’s a very old theater. And the hairspray! I never used hairspray. And the wigs! Let’s not talk about the fricking wigs, that was such a saga. But the cigarettes were the hardest. When I made “The Rose”, I did smoke, I smoked for six months, and years later I tried a cigarette again and it made me sick for two weeks. These are herbal cigarettes, but smoke is smoke. I was thrilled, though, when I finally got the timing down to smoke two at once – a cigarette in one hand and a joint in the other. That was Sue.

Bette Midler Talks About The Rose:

Bette Midler Talks About The Rose: “Aside from their self destructiveness, I don’t know what characteristics of Janis, Hendrix, and Morrison will come out in my film role. I think that Janis’s drug addiction and lesbian side were exagerrated. I never got any lesbian vibes from her and I couldn’t finish the book that wrote of them. I looked on her as a warm person, full of life and humor.” (Richmond Times Dispatch, January 20, 1978) Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage, concert, night and indoor

Charlie Puth wants a ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ duet with Bette Midler

New York Metro Charlie Puth wants a ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ duet with Bette Midler By RACHEL RACZKA October 5, 2016   the-voice-mentors-bette-midle-charlie-puth-and-more-rumoured-cfmp-lead Charlie Puth knows how to drive the conversation. The 24-year-old doesn’t skip a beat when asked who he’d like to see sub in for Selena Gomez for their chart-topping single “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” “I’d love to perform it with Bette Midler,” he says. “I would make this whole jazz orchestral arrangement with her.” Oh, Bette? You mean your fellow co-mentor on this upcoming season of the “The Voice,” premiering Monday on NBC? “Yeah, that’s why I said her,” he coyly adds. Some might say Puth knows how to work the press, but that’s likely because he’s has such a heavy year of talking to them. Pre-dating the January release of his debut studio album “Nine Track Mind,” Puth already had a mega-hit with another pop starlet, Meghan Trainor in the form of “Marvin Gaye.” He received a Song of the Year Grammy nod with Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” (they lost out to Ed Sheehan’s “Thinking Out Loud”) and embarked on his headlining tour come spring. This time, Puth is out on the road again with the Don’t Talk Tour, accompanied by another YouTube wunderkind, Hailey Knox. He calls from Miami to discuss his big year, his foray onto the screen and what we can expect from his sophomore release. =&0=&The music is better. [Laughs] I think the overall show is just really strong. Nine Track was obviously amazing for me in its own way because it was my first time. But I figured out a lot more about what I needed on the road. Tony Royster [Jr.] is on drums with me and he’s one of the best in the world. I wanted the best of the best behind me. I was really inspired by seeing Alicia Keys perform. I saw a small show of her’s and she gave me ideas for Don’t Talk [Tour]. I wanted give it a soulful, church-like vibe. =&1=&I love arranging music and putting songs together and switching up keys, so it was a natural environment for me. I actually forgot I was on TV. =&2=&I don’t know. I think I would jump into acting in a small role first, but I’m happy that “The Voice” let me come on. It’s been insane being alongside all these legends. =&3=&Selena is taking a bit of a break and wanted her time off. And that’s cool. But that song keeps popping up. I’ve done it with a few different people and [“DWTS”] was another new refreshing spin. I think that’s why that song has lived on for so long. =&4=&

Bette Midler On The Song I’m Beautiful:

Bette Midler On The Song I’m Beautiful: “It’s a very upbeat message. because it says something. It’s about being done in, beaten up your whole life and finally standing up for yourself and saying, ‘I count! I exist.’ I got a little misty-eyed myself the first time I heard it. It’s very sweet and funny.” (The Hour – Sep 4, 1998)

    Bette Midler “Can’t Wait” to See Idina Menzel Revive Her ‘Beaches’ Role

    Hollywood Reporter Bette Midler “Can’t Wait” to See Idina Menzel Revive Her ‘Beaches‘ Role 10:52 PM PDT 8/2/2016 by Jackie Strause 2016-06-12_9-19-47 The original CC took to Twitter on Tuesday night. No one is more excited to see the upcoming TV revival of Beaches than Bette Midler. In the 1988 feature film, Midler played the iconic role of CC Bloom, an aspiring singer who meets Hillary (played Barbara Hershey) as a kid on the Venice Boardwalk. The pair’s lifelong friendship is chronicled over decades in the beloved tearjerker, which was directed by Garry Marshall. Now, Lifetime is set to remake the classic as a TV movie, with Idina Menzel stepping into the role of Midler’s CC. “Can’t wait to see Idina Menzel as CC in Lifetime’s ‘Beaches!’” Midler tweeted on Tuesday night, adding: “DON’T TELL ME THE ENDING!” The remake was announced one week after Marshall’s death, with production set to begin on Aug. 15 in Vancouver. The movie’s music — including “Wind Beneath My Wings,” which earned record and song of the year at the 1990 Grammys — will be included with new takes from Menzel. Casting is underway for the role of Hillary.
