Bijou Phillips Thursday 28th January 2010 Calvin Klein Collection & Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND) 1st Annual Celebration For L.A. Arts Monthly and Art Los Angeles Contemporary (ALAC) - Arrivals Los Angeles, California
Actress Bijou Phillips has been left devastated by her sister MACKENZIE's incest revelations, insisting she can't believe their father, MAMAS & THE PAPAS star John Phillips, once raped his daughter and then enjoyed a decade-long consensual affair with her.
MACkenzie has revealed all about her twisted romance with her father in her new memoir, High on Arrival, and she stunned America on Wednesday (23Sep09) when she spoke out about the affair on daytime TV show Oprah.
The actress' stepmother Michelle Phillips, who was also a member of the Mamas & The Papas, immediately fired back at the claims, suggesting MACkenzie's recollections could not be believed - because she's a longtime drug abuser, and now her stepsister has spoken in defence of her father.
Bijou Phillips insists it's not the first time she has heard her sister's outrageous claims, stating, "When I was 13, MACkenzie told me that she had a consensual sexual relationship with our father. This news was confusing and it was also scary, as I lived alone with him since I was three. I didn't know what to believe and it didn't help that shortly thereafter MACkenzie told me it didn't happen."

Former THAT 70'S SHOW star Danny Masterson has sparked rumours of a romance with actress/socialite Bijou Phillips after buying a Hollywood Hills home together.
The couple has spent an estimated $3 million (GBP1.5 million) on a five-bedroom Mediterranean-style property.
Phillips and Masterson have been regulars on the Hollywood party scene for years. They're currently starring in actor Blair Underwood's directorial debut The Bridge To Nowhere.
Actress Bijou Phillips suffered nightmares for two weeks after shooting finished on new horror sequel Hostel: Part II.
The 27-year-old found filming torture scenes soon took their toll on her general well-being.
She says, "After we'd shoot the torture stuff I'd go back to my apartment, I'd be lying in bed. I'd be just about to fall asleep and I'd think something was coming to get me.
"It was so crazy and I'd shoot across the room and bang my knee and I thought my apartment was haunted.
"Definitely all the things that happen to you after you leave a horror movie, that was pretty much me for a couple of weeks."
Basically, Part II is Hostel plus a B-cup. Three girls (Lauren German, Bijou Phillips, and Heather Matarazzo) are in Europe studying art. One of the models for the art course is a statuesque beauty (Vera Jordanova) who befriends the girls and starts a friendship with one girl that borders on lesbianism. Of course, the model gets them to go to a special hot springs and stay at a hostel. Shortly after arriving, the girls are drugged, dragged, and prepped for a slab or a death seat.

Sometimes it is as curious as all get-out (see Anne Hathaway in Havoc). I don't know if I've ever seen a more radical departure of film roles than Hathaway's decision to go from the Princess Diaries films to this one. Hathaway's former work is almost unilaterally square in the rated-G realm. Her PG-rated movies earned those ratings primarily due to events like Hathaway falling on her butt.

The hardest thing about an outsider trying to infiltrate a subculture and explain it to the masses is that the truth is often lost in the translation. Toback throws together a huge canvas of characters and actors in attempt to create a clear picture of why white kids are motivated to impersonate black rappers' lifestyles and why rich whit guys treat black rappers like Arnold and Willis from Diff'rent Strokes.

A slam-dunk natural subject for Clark, Bully follows the based-on-reality story of Marty Puccio (Brad Renfro), who along with his girlfriend Lisa (Rachel Miner) decides to brutally slay his "best friend" Bobby (Nick Stahl) as payback for a lifetime of abuse. Set in the ultra-trashy nether regions of southern Florida -- and I mean seriously, beyond-WWF trashy -- there's little to do but drive your car, play video games, have sex, and beat the crap out of your friends.

Amusing enough, and a quick read. And Fast Sofa, the movie, keeps the guts of this road trip intact -- enough to realize that our pal Rick is on a real road to nowhere. Jake Busey makes for a creepy and considerably miscast hero, though Jennifer Tilly's wanton Ginger is enough fun for the both of them. Stealing the show, however, is Crispin Glover, as a shut-in sophisticate named Julian who tags along on the latter half of Rick's abortive journey. His outfit alone is reason enough to rent the tape.

Not only does the provocative title of Tart mislead us, but the packaging features a lithe Dominique Swain on its covers, her schoolgirl skirt blowing up to expose her panties. The tagline: "Sex, Drugs and Study Hall."

Jeff Bridges and Kim Basinger give a pair of extraordinary performances in "The Door in the Floor" as a couple whose souls and whose marriage have never recovered from the deaths of their teenage sons six years before.
Their lives are like broken teacups glued back together -- they may look undamaged from a distance, but up close it's clear they're now made up of psychological shatters and shards that can never be the same again.
Not that they haven't tried to move forward. Hoping to retard their overwhelming sense of loss, they even had a daughter -- played by 6-year-old Elle Fanning, the not-quite-as-natural little sister of uber-talented 8-year-old Dakota ("Man On Fire") -- who seems to subconsciously understand her function in the family.
