She doesn’t sign on to every sh-tty script that’s thrown at her. And she’s not a famewhore. And her fans are f-cking crazy. So we don’t see her very often. Only when it’s time to promote a movie. The movie, as you know, is called Whip It. Directed by Drew Barrymore, it will be Ellen’s first feature since Juno. Full Story
