AnnaLynne McCord Talks Ridiculous Web Rumors

AnnaLynne McCord is certainly one of the “it” girls of young Hollywood. She shot to fame thanks to ‘Nip/Tuck’ and ‘90210,’ and now the blonde bombshell is going digital in a new Web-only series called ‘Dial*’ (pronounced “Dial Star”). The premise of the show is all about someone finding AnnaLynne’s cell phone and the ensuing drama that could come with such a situation. Given the sensitive materials that could and have been found on the phones of some celebs (explicit pictures, videos, etc.), we wanted to ask Miss McCord what the worst thing someone might find on hers would be. Her answer, plus the most ridiculous Web rumor she’s heard about herself … after the jump!

So ‘Dial*’ will be seen on the Web only. What’s the most ridiculously false thing you’ve read about yourself on the Internet?

Actually, quite frankly, I make it a point to try not to read anything. You have to believe the good, and if you believe the good, you have to believe the good and the bad in my opinion. So, I try not to read any of it, so I don’t have to go along with it. I do know, I don’t know if it was on the Internet, but someone in France told me that while I was in France I was apparently also dating Shia LaBeouf. [Laughs] I was like, “That’s really cool, I wonder what it’s like to date him and not realize that you’re dating him,” because I really wasn’t aware that I was with him ever. [Laughs] But, that wasn’t really me reading it on the Web.

Stars have gotten into some trouble with people hacking into their private phone photos. Would there be anything on your phone that you have to worry about?

Well, I like to think of myself as a wise woman, and I learn from the mistakes of others, so absolutely not. If there was, there are passwords and their are codes and I don’t even want to go there with that. The worst thing they’d find on my phone is me doing a cross-eyed photo with my sisters, making some goofy face, which is definitely blackmail worthy, but not really in the way I’m sure they’re hoping when they’re trying to exploit my pictures on my phone.

AnnaLynne McCord Talks ‘Dial*,’ ‘90210′ and Celebrity Impersonators

AnnaLynne McCord has a beef with celebrity impersonators. She also likes to be on the forefront of new and emerging forms of entertainment, so when the ‘Dial*’ (‘Dial Star’) web series opportunity was presented to her, she said she was very intrigued.

In the AT&T and NBC Universal Web series that will be available across mobile and Internet platforms starting June 8, McCord plays herself and is also an executive producer on the project that finds her cell phone falling into the hands of an aspiring actress. The young actress, Celia, suddenly has all sorts of doors start to open for her because she has McCord’s phone and some private information that gets her into swanky parties and in front of the right industry people.

The project struck close to home for McCord. She said she has dozens of impersonators online and has even been verbally attacked by one. The ‘90210′ starlet chatted with TV Squad on all things ‘Dial*,’ how she reclaims her privacy amidst the watching eye of the paparazzi, her film work and of course what’s coming up for her character in Beverly Hills, Naomi.

What drew you to this Web project?
It was interesting when Universal and NBC first approached me, they came in and they had a lovely spiel. They were like, “Rosario Dawson has done this, this is the future.” I’m very on board with whatever is trendy and coming up next. I love the idea of everything heading towards the Internet with iTunes and all of that. That’s where it’s all going. I like to get on the bandwagon early, you know what I mean?

As far as the project itself, I was hesitant initially. I really don’t do the whole playing myself thing — that gives me anxiety to say the least. But it was cool because I was given some creative input and actually came on as an executive producer and took what they started with as far as ideas with everything like having my cell phone stolen and someone trying to impersonate me. We took it and added a different level because I’ve been dealing and I know a lot of other entertainers — actors, singers, what have you — personalities in the public eye deal with the issue of Twitter, Facebook fan pages and people impersonating us and speaking to our fans.

I’ve actually had someone on Twitter, someone who has my name right now, @AnnaLynneMcCord, curse at me and tell me that I’m a bitch and that I need to get off because I’m not the real AnnaLynne McCord. I’m like, “Um, OK, well can you please elaborate on what AnnaLynne McCord is thinking right now because she’s a little pissed as far as I know.” So this gets into something I know that my peers deal with. It was a kind of cool little venue and outlet for me in a way to kind of talk about it … Imitation is usually the highest form of flattery and I realize that. In this regard, it’s kind of impersonation. It’s stealing somebody’s identity and it’s really not cool. If you want to make a fan page, if you want to show your support, we’re so appreciative of that, but don’t impersonate me and don’t pretend to be me and talk to my fans as if you’re speaking on my behalf because that’s not fair to me.

You know, that was one of my other questions because I searched for you on Twitter [@IAMannalynnemcc] and there were tons of people pretending to be you.
Yeah, if you noticed I don’t even have my own name! I’m on there because it’s been a great catalyst for me to spread awareness about the great organizations I support and it’s been incredible as far as that. Obviously I was able to incorporate that into this piece on the web series, but yeah, it’s crazy! Like, can I be myself, please? Does someone out there already own my name on every different web account there is? It’s crazy.

Bebe Teams Up with 90210!

In the never-ending sea of designer collabs, an unlikely pair recently announced their union. Fashion-forward retail chain Bebe is teaming up with the CW’s 90210 for four annual collections comprised of dresses, tops, bottoms, and accessories. The show’s stylists and Bebe’s creative design team will work together on designing the line, which will reflect the sexy, modern attitude of the characters in the series.

Now it will certainly be easier to get the clothes that fashion darlings AnnaLynne McCord and Jessica Stroup wear on screen (we wonder if they’ll be guest-designing any pieces) but we must admit: we’d be a lot more excited if Gossip Girl was announcing the same project. Nonetheless, we’ll check out the line when it hits stores, but it might be a bit of a wait (no release date has been set).

Wait, 50 Cent Wrote a Movie? And It Has a Trailer?

Apparently, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson isn’t content to merely be a huge rap star — it looks like the music mogul has now set his sights on Hollywood. We brought you news about Jackson’s latest project, Things Fall Apart (wherein he dropped a huge amount of weight to play a character battling cancer), but that’s not the only thing the performer has on his plate. A trailer for Gun — a film not only featuring 50 in a starring role, but based on one of the three screenplays he’s written — turned up this weekend. So what, exactly, does a film based on a 50 Cent screenplay look like? If you guessed “a generic B-action movie that wears its influences like a neon badge of honor” you’re on the right track.

This isn’t meant to insult the man — there’s always room for a good B grade action movie about gun dealers in the city and a white guy ex-con (Val Kilmer) sent to infiltrate the group. It gives you plenty of opportunities for interracial bonding between the tough guy from the streets and the white guy he has little in common with, but accepts into his inner circle anyway. Plus it leads up to the big reveal where said arms dealer learns he’s been betrayed — that’s action cinema 101.

What’s most amazing about the trailer is all the famous people who turn up. Not only do you get 50 and Kilmer, but James Remar and John Larroquette as well. 90210’s Annalynne McCord shows up as the love interest/requisite sex object.

Bebe to Launch ‘90210′ Clothing Collection

The female protagonists on CW’s revamp of 90210, like the characters in many a teen drama, have wardrobes meticulously defined by their very archetypal personalities. Drama queen Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) clutches Fendi baguettes; edgy Silver (Jessica Stroup) wears a single dangling earring from time to time; former midwesterner Annie (Shenae Grimes) seems most at ease in cutesy, girly frocks; and vintage queen Adriana (Jessica Lowndes) wears old-school halter swimsuits like a regular pinup girl.

Now Bebe Stores Inc and CBS have announced a partnership that will see four separate clothing collections inspired by the ladies of 90210 launched over the course of the show’s third season. It sounds like a teen dream: The clothing will hit Bebe stores at the same time it airs on TV.

Which 90210 style maven do you most identify with? Would you ever want to raid her wardrobe?

Shannen Doherty gets animated

FEARnet premieres their new animated series, “Mari-Kari” Thursday, June 3.

And guess whose voice is behind both title characters? Original “90210″ and “Charmed” star Shannen Doherty!

“I think the writing is spot-on,” says Doherty about the animated series. “I think it’s really clever and very smart.”

The animated 8-episode series is about twin sisters Mari and Kari, but there’s a morbid twist. Mari is a sweet (kind of clueless) schoolgirl and Kari is her ghost sister that will do anything to protect Mari from bullies.

When the producers were looking to cast the voice behind the sisters, they wanted someone who can portray both the mean and sweet title characters believingly. Doherty’s reputation preceded her.

“I don’t know if I would go so far as to hack people up like Kari does,” says Doherty. “But I think the majority of us encountered a bully in school and got picked on and it was annoying.”
