Django Unchained is on the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly.
Jamie Foxx revealed that he wore clothes from Diddy’s Sean Jean clothing line while filming Django Unchained for inspiration and character development.
I would wear Sean Jean clothes just to sort of like, for one, Puffy is a friend, a black man doing his thing,” Foxx explained. “So I would wear his clothes and I would be like, ‘Listen, I’m not trying to be weird on you,’ I told him, I wore it as sort of a representation from the future to the past of where we were actually going: to where a black man can own his own company, do records, own all these different things. So there were these little things that I would take along with me to push the character forward.
There was a bit of a brouhaha this week when The Drudge Report posted the image below on their front page along with a link to The Hollywood Reporter’s review of Django Unchained. Are we back in 1994?
Speaking of the Django Unchained premiere, The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Samuel L. Jackson at the premiere about his role in the film. “It’s always freeing to be bad and evil.”
Stacey Sher said while shooting Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained in Mammoth Lakes, the ski resort saw no snow in January for the first time in a century. They had to move to a location that would have snow. “We had to pick up our set that we built in Mammoth and move it to the Grand Tetons and figure out how to get into all the places we needed to on very short notice to not stop filming,” Sher said.
