Meet Megan Fox’s Replacement in Transformers 3, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

And Megan Fox thought she’s irreplaceable. After badmouthing Michael Bay and calling him Hilter? Bay doesn’t need to say a word against her. He just needs to take away what made Megan who she is now and replace her.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is an English model and actress, best known for modelling for Victoria’s Secret and as replacement for Megan Fox in the upcoming Michael Bay film Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

MTV Networks’ NextMovie.com named her one of the “Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2011″. Prior to the film’s release, she also won the “Female Star of Tomorrow” award at the 2011 CinemaCon Awards.

Rosie is on the cover of the July/August issue of Women’s Health Magazine (US Edition).

She has appeared on the past four installments of the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” and was a guest on “Britain’s Next Top Model.” 

She’s also reportedly dating Transporter star Jason Statham.

The person who made the statement is Rafael "Rafa" Santos. Rafa is a director of the short film SAMARITO and part of Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival this year.

His statement did not sit well with the theater community, spurring shout outs in Facebook and Twitter.

An apology letter from Santos was posted earlier today (June 29, 2011 Wednesday) in Facebook:

Dear All,

My name is rafa santos. I recently taped an interview for an ANC show that, as you may have heard, went about as terrible as it could have gone for me. I made an unfortunate joke about what it is like to work with theater actors; a remark which offended countless artists the industry over. I do not defend this comment in any way. Even in the context of poor, ill-advised humor, my statement made light of an art that many among us hold dear and sacred.

Misguided comedy aside, what I meant to infer was that theater actors, in my estimation, are the pinnacle of the thespian craft. They do not put on airs or show up late or complain about the quality of the food or condition of the set and come in day after day after day for little to no money all for their love of acting and performance. It is the work that they feed on: the opportunity to bring life to a nebulous character on an inanimate page.

It was never my intention to look down on or demean stage actors in any shape or form. Some of my best experiences as a director are derived from the pleasure of working with theater people; to be able to feel the dedication and devotion they possess towards their art and to somehow allow that same commitment to diffuse into myself.

One of my dearest friends, my neighbor and actress in my movie, Bea Garcia, is herself a shining example of the passion of which i speak. It pains me to know I've hurt her so deeply in assaulting the craft that she loves so much.It is with a clear mind and heavy heart that I extend my heartfelt apology. I have offended any of you, I am sorry. If I've offended; anyone you love, I take the blame. If any of you feel sorry for me;please don't. I built my own coffin of words and nailed it shut with insolence.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I don't expect to be forgiven, but I do hope my family is treated kindly.

rafa santos

The Adventures of Pureza: Queen of the Riles

Are you ready to laugh harder? Well, here’s a dose of fun that will surely give you a hard time remembering your problems. Star Cinema’s newest offering together with Sine Screen, the Movie that stars PBB BIG Winner Melai Cantiveros and her reel and real life love team, Jason Francisco, or even more popularly known as Melason, “The Adventures of Pureza: Queen of the Riles”!

This will be their first big movie break. Melai and Jason takes the limelight this time as major lead stars. I am actually excited to see the movie. With Melai and Jason’s witty real life character, I would say I’m really looking forward to see them act in the big screen. In fact, the Prinsesa ng Masa, Melai, gets the title role no less in what could be the birth of another ace comedienne. And the whole country couldn’t be any happier. Myself included!

The story revolves with Pura, (Melai) who plays the comedic role of a bubbly, caring, kind-hearted, very hardworking “dakilang ate” who wants nothing but only the best for her one and only beloved brother, Ulam, and uplift their dismal life. In all her endeavors, Pura’s best friend, Ruben (Jason Francisco), has always been by her side. Pura and Ruben then stumbles into a one-time big time opportunity to usher a Brazilian model who manages to escape them. With this unfortunate turn of event, Pura steps into the role … literally. She is now the model Pureza Mayriles! Basking in the promise of a better fortune plus a serendipitous love, little did Pura know that she has dragged herself into a life-threatening mess? Now running for their lives, Pura and Ruben has to detangle themselves from the dangers that faces them and how!

8 couples join gay wedding in Baguio

By Ma. Elena Catajan
Saturday, June 25, 2011

BAGUIO CITY -- The Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) of Metro Baguio performed on Saturday wedding rites for eight gay couples in Baguio City while New York became the sixth and largest state in the US to legalize gay marriage.

The wedding rites were patterned after the traditional Catholic ceremonies at the Ayuyang Bar and Restaurant in Baden Powell Inn, and officiated by pastors Mike Sotero, Egay Constantino, Ceejay Agbayani and Regen Luna of MCC.

There were three couples from Baguio City while the rest came from as far as the United States to wed their life partners in the first of its kind wedding the city has known.

Teary eyed couples walked in the processional under the curious eyes of media. Jam packing the small venue, most of them tried to shield their faces from the cameras but were visibly happy to be married.

Rose petals were scattered in the walkway for the couples to pass through with a band and singer to make the ceremonies more intimate. Bible passages were recited throughout the rites.

Sotero said a lot of couples are still suffering from the harshness of society. Placards and signs adorned the wedding hall with messages like “Would Jesus discriminate and I married my mahal,” empowering the couples’ decision to tie the knot.

Sotero said Saturday’s wedding ceremony gathered the biggest number since 2003. “They can use the documents we give here when they go to countries which allow same sex marriages.”

Sotero’s rites are binding in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities and considered sacred by those who believe in its sanctity. “Marami na ang humihingi sa amin ang kasal (There were already a lot asking the wedding rite).”

Richard McLeland, who is 64 years old, and Jon Jon Punzal, who recently turned 22, were among the more open couples in the wedding, welcoming media interviews and candid photo opportunities.

The rest shied away from the limelight, requesting anonymity.

McLeland said: “Jon Jon is now my family, he is my darling.”

The two met in the social networking site Facebook and have been a couple for two years.

The young Jon Jon said McLeland is only his second partner. “Di ko maisplika kung bakit kami nagpakasal agad, basta alam ko na siya na (I can’t explain why we got married, but I know that he is the one).”

Jon Jon said his partner is very kind and has decided to live in the Philippines.

Couples spent their honeymoon at the Baden Powell Inn after the ceremony with Might Gupit, the owner, allowing the ceremony to take place there, saying: "Ayuyang means a meeting place of all, we do not judge here.”

Earlier, Baguio-Benguet Bishop Carlito Cenzon criticized the same-sex mass wedding, saying the wedding is wrong and cannot be called a holy union.

“Wedding should involve only a woman and a man,” the bishop added.

Meanwhile, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill legalizing gay marriage in New York just before midnight Friday (Saturday Philippine time).

At New York City's Stonewall Inn, the Greenwich Village pub that spawned the gay rights movement on a June night in 1969, Scott Redstone watched New York sign the historic same-sex marriage law with his partner of 29 years, and popped the question.

"I said, 'Will you marry me?' And he said, 'Of course!'" Redstone said he and Steven Knittweis walked home to pop open a bottle of champagne.

New York becomes the sixth state where gay couples can wed, doubling the number of Americans living in a state with legal gay marriage.

"That's certainly going to have a ripple effect across the nation," said Ross Levi, executive director of the Empire State Pride Agenda. "It's truly a historic night for love, our families, and democracy won."

"We made a powerful statement," Cuomo said. "This state is at its finest when it is a beacon of social justice."

The leading opponent, Democratic Sen. Ruben Diaz, was given only a few minutes to state his case during the Senate debate.

"God, not Albany, settled the issue of marriage a long time ago," said Diaz, a Bronx minister. "I'm sorry you are trying to take away my right to speak," he said. "Why are you ashamed of what I have to say?"

The Catholic Bishops of New York said the law alters "radically and forever humanity's historic understanding of marriage."

"We always treat our homosexual brothers and sisters with respect, dignity and love," the bishops stated Friday, "We worry that both marriage and the family will be undermined by this tragic presumption of government in passing this legislation that attempts to redefine these cornerstones of civilization."

Legal challenges of the law and political challenges aimed at the four Republicans who supported gay marriage in the 33-29 vote are expected.

"State legislators should not decide society-shaping issues," said the Rev. Jason McGuire of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms. He said his organization would work in next year's elections to defeat lawmakers who voted for the measure.

The big win for gay rights advocates is expected to galvanize the movement around the country after an almost identical bill was defeated here in 2009 and similar measures failed in 2010 in New Jersey and this year in Maryland and Rhode Island. (Sun.Star Baguio/AP/Sunnex)

Gay and Lesbian Pride Month is celebrated each year for the month of June. The last Sunday in June is celebrated as Gay Pride Day. On June 2, 2000, President Bill Clinton declared June "Gay & Lesbian Pride Month". In 2009, 2010, and 2011 U.S. President Barack Obama declared June to be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, stating, “I call upon all Americans to observe this month by fighting prejudice and discrimination in their own lives and everywhere it exists.” The month was chosen to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village that sparked the modern LGBT liberation movement in the United States.

This month is meant to recognize the impact gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex people have had on the world. GLBT groups celebrate with pride parades, picnics, parties, memorials for those lost from hate crimes , and other group gathering events that attract thousands upon thousands of individuals. InterPride, the International Association of Pride Organizers, was founded in 1982 and has grown to encompass pride events around the world throughout the year. Although June remains the primary month for pride events the annual calendar shows events in most months.

Happy PRIDE Month, LGBT Community!
