These are absolutely stunning - fantastic work!

when imagining that your mother is (a presumably eternally young) Mila Kunis. (x)

Eddie and Mila being pals behind-the-scenes of Jupiter Ascending 
- there’s nothing like stage fighting to seal the bonds of friendship! (x)
 “I had the most fun working with [Eddie] because […] I had to slap Eddie
[and] […] we had a whole fight sequence together.” /Mila Kunis/

Update May 25, 2015:
I totally agree with this post about Eddie Redmayne's portrayal of Balem:
fuckyeahjupiterascending: Evil Overlord Acting
...I think people find it ridiculous/laughable because they make absolutely no attempt to understand it. Critics have literally been incapable of seeing past the histrionics and the extreme voice modulations, and consequently find the performance itself incredibly arbitrary and bizarre. Now, it is a gloriously unhinged performance, yes, but that’s the whole point of it - Redmayne is playing an insane, 50,000-year-old man who has remained functional purely on account of the magic of space capitalism. Naturally, he gives a bold performance - the role demanded it and the Wachowskis wanted it, so Redmayne gave in to the madness and went with it....
...“He played the role perfectly. And I mean perfectly. He was disgusting and despicable. His character had serious mommy issues and it showed not only in his interaction with Mila but in his character’s general character. He was a spoiled brat who murdered his own mother and was forced to look those feelings of guilt, sacrifice, loathing, familial love, desperation and self hate in the face and do it all over again. It was fucking magnificent.”(x)
...there’s a genuinely impressive and fascinating performance there if you can look beyond the volume of Redmayne’s voice. Anyone who suggests that Redmayne gave a ‘bad’ performance in Jupiter Ascending can go to hell - it’s a mad performance, but it goes to the bone and is ludicrously entertaining...
