R20, why aren't you interested in Dorian Gray? It's got some hot scenes with Ben Barnes, and it features a good performance by Colin Firth in the George Sanders role from the 1945 version.

I dunno, it just seemed so unimaginative and obvious, DG may not have been done much but it's so well and such a cultural staple. Remakes can be tiresome but I hate when they do old lit adaptations.

Then again, it isn't that faithful is it? As long as they don't Baz Luhrmann it up but I had heard good things about it.

At least it isn't something like Total Recall, the makers of which should be shot. I know throughout Hollywood history remakes have only been about 20 years apart (Imitation of Life, Star is Born and all the silent remakes) but way to make me feel old damnit!

"Ben Barnes looking for mature lover"

Source: Bang Showbiz Date: 13 September 2009

‘Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian’ actor Ben Barnes can’t find a girlfriend and only seems to attract young teenage fans.

The ‘Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian’ actor is currently single and claims he can’t find someone his own age who is interested in him.

The 28-year-old star said: “I haven’t got a girlfriend, I’m single. Send the girls my way!

“The only letters I am getting at the moment are from 12-year-olds because of ‘Narnia’!”

He said: “I was doing things I hadn’t done before, like kissing a man. (Bwahahaha!) I was naked with a 17-year-old on the first day.

“It’s a fantasy romance for Tamsin Egerton and her King Caspian”

Is St Trinian’s star Tamsin Egerton planning a fairytale romance involving Narnia actor Ben Barnes? (UH, NOPE!)

The 20-year-old actress has just returned from Australia, where she spent time with Ben.

He is Down Under working on The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader, the next in the series of Narnia films, in which Ben, 28, again plays the swashbuckling King Caspian.

‘Tamsin hooked up with Ben a couple of times and there was a lot of talk about how close they were,’ says my spy.

But when I caught up with Tamsin at the Berkeley Square Ball launch in London, she insisted she and Ben were just friends.

She said: ‘I tried to set him up with one of my friends once but he wouldn’t bite.’

"There's compelling magic in 'Seventh Son' for Ben Barnes"

British star delves back into fantasy as as an apprentice to Jeff Bridges' master knight.

SAN DIEGO — Brit actor Ben Barnes came to Comic-Con last year but didn't have a lot to say.

He was there to announce the fantasy movie Seventh Son though none of it had been filmed. That didn't stop fans and others alike from pestering him about it.

"They kept asking me what was exciting about it," Barnes recalls, "and I kept pointing at Jeff Bridges, going, 'Jeff Bridges is in it.' That was all I could come up with. I figured I was being honest."

That answer still holds, but Barnes will have much more to say about it Saturday at a morning panel with Bridges for Seventh Son (opening Jan. 17), which is based on The Spook's Apprentice, the first book in Joseph Delaney's children's series The Wardstone Chronicles.

A veteran of the recent Chronicles of Narnia films, Barnes plays Tom Ward, a young man plucked from the toils of pig farming to be the apprentice of Master Gregory (Bridges), a knight who imprisoned the evil witch Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) years ago. Malkin found her way out of captivity and she's ready to raze the world, so Gregory turns to Tom, who as the seventh son of a seventh son is prophesied to have powers against dark magic.

The movie has "an otherworldly feel that is absolutely what they were gong for," says Barnes, who notes that director Sergei Bodrov cast witches from Sweden, Germany and all over Europe.

Tom learns the ways of this ancient magic as the story unfolds. "It's not just about swords and smashing monsters with wooden staffs," Barnes says.

"We've kept a lot of the smaller details from the books. Throwing a combination of salt and iron will reveal a creature of the dark when it reveals itself to you. The power of alchemy, a lot of that is moralistic — it's about making the right decision at the right times.'

To prepare, Barnes read many of the dozen-plus books in the series, but some parts had to be changed. In the books, Tom is 14, but he has been aged to his 20s for the movie so filmmakers could add a romance and make the action more vivid.

In one chapter, young Tom has to beat a witch to death with a stick in the river, Barnes says, "and it feels quite violent. I'm sure a lot of dear lovers of the book will be up in arms that the stories aren't exactly the same as they are in the books, but at the same time they'll be pretty excited when they see it."

Tom feels he's meant for something more in the world than pig farming but has a very close bond with his mother and doesn't quite know how to go about finding adventure. Then Master Gregory turns up, and Tom is "quite unceremoniously bought by this grumbling drunken witch hunter," Barnes says.

"He isn't quite sure whether he's happy about it, so it's an interesting dichotomy between wanting something more but being stuck with this man who doesn't seem to appreciate him in that quite traditional style of men, where you're not quite sure if you love him or hate him."

His character has more dilemmas as Seventh Son develops. Tom has feelings for Alice Deane (Alicia Vikander) who's the niece of a witch, so he's not sure what to do. Plus, the one man who can advise him — Gregory — puts up brick walls at every turn.

"It's interesting to find those little character traits," Barnes says, "the exasperation at being treated like a servant and the wide-eyed wondering of discovering this whole new world and all the magic and mystery and danger that goes along with that."

A relationship develops between Tom and Gregory that's somewhere between a buddy movie and a father-son movie. And as Gregory, Bridges is "awesome," says Barnes.

"You're always going to get that level of wryness in his characters and in his self-effacing approach to things," he says of the Oscar-winning actor. "He's the Dude and he's always going to look at things from a very curious angle."

Barnes admits he had "absolutely no intention" of doing movies with swords and creatures after his two Narnia films, Prince Caspian (2008) and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010).

However, he found the power of the Dude to be compelling and saw a project with a lot of imagination.

"Once you sit opposite one of the greats like Jeff Bridges and they pick you to be involved, there's absolute zero reason to think pragmatically about am I going to get stuck doing these movies for always," Barnes says. "It's such great escapism and an enormous, exciting scale. And it's up to me to make the characters different."

by Anonymousreply 7508/17/2013

His roommate in L.A. is Rob Kazinsky of Pacific Rim and True Blood fame. They seem to have a core group of friends that they hang with alot. Zelda Williams, Shane West, Ricky Whittle. The women in the group are attractive but on the plain side. They all come off as big nerds, preferring video games and Star Trek to the club scene or attending every opening of an envelope to get publicity. The Brits seem to view acting as a job and are always grateful to be working. Very few appear to want to be "movie stars" and they don't seem to court fame and then bitch about it like many American actors. Think Joe Manganiello. I can't say if Ben is gay. Maybe he's just focused on getting acting gigs. What ever he is he sure looks happy.

After posting that I read a transcript for a Dorian Gray interview/press conference where he said he was straight. Who knows, but there really isn't much to say that he is or isn't gay...he almost seems asexual actually.

by Anonymousreply 7808/18/2013

R76, none of that is true. Brits are very Americanized now, and Ben has been open about wanting to make it in Hollywood, and will only do starting roles. It just hasn't worked out for him yet.

by Anonymousreply 7908/18/2013

You appear to be confusing Ben Barnes with Sienna Miller, r79. He's a much better actor and a lot prettier. Nothing I posted is untrue. The Brits have a different work ethic which is why many of them are at the top of the list for the leads in every big franchise movie. Despite what Joe Manganiello says:) What exactly does "Americanized" mean? Do you mean moving to L.A. to network and to find work? Every starry eyed Drama major in every podunk town in the U.S. dreams of doing that. And many do. Did you even read r67's post? It sounds like he's more interested in taking roles based on what interests him and who he's working with rather than blind ambition.

by Anonymousreply 11801/10/2015

Google him, r116. There are several interviews with him online and he always says the same thing. He's shy. Hasn't met the right girl. Doesn't have the time for a girlfriend. Yet, the group he hangs with in L.A. includes several women. All Plain Janes. One of his best friends is Zelda Williams. Robins's daughter. Shane West is also part of that group. Draw your own conclusions;) Several years ago, when he was doing press for Narnia, BB gave a couple of interviews that left the impression that he and a co-star were dating. She finally went on record and said it. never. happened. He's either in the closet or he's emotionally immature and too self-involved to properly court a girl. Kazinsky was involved in some skeezy on-line sex scandal that got him booted from Eastenders. Although he claims that he never had sex with the woman involved. He's another one with a questionable dating background and an obvious Peter Pan complex. If they aren't a real couple then I bet they have at least fooled around. Just a little.

So, does Ben still claim to be straight or is he basically asexual now? At 34...

by Anonymousreply 16106/26/2016

We've had several threads on that very question, R161.

Ben turns 35 in August, and there's been virtually no info about his dating life after all these years.

Is he what DL calls "white adjacent"?

R159, where did you find that clip from Westworld?

by Anonymousreply 16406/26/2016

At least there's the slightest hint of bisexuality in the Westworld gif. We likely won't get any peen, maybe a bit if man-ass, likely not Ben's. HBO needs to turn up the heat if they want to make up for losing GoT next year.

How come Ben is reluctant to show his ass? He only showed a side view in 'Dorian Gray'.

It's time for him to step up and do a proper nude scene in this show.

Maybe his walls are blown out.

by Anonymousreply 16706/26/2016

'Westworld' is expected to have lots of sex & nudity -- more than "Game of Thrones".

So hopefully Ben will be among those going naked.

HBO caused some controversy over its nudity clause for this show. The extras were told that they must agree to 'genital to genital' touching.

[quote] [R156], asexuality does exist.

And yet most people claiming certain celebrities are asexual are desperate fans, probably straight women or even straight men, who can't handle that their hero is gay or is more than a living doll.

R179 Any sign of a boyfriend, though? If there's neither a gf nor a bf, then who really knows what he's into.

R182, I think someone said above that Ben is living with a male friend in the Hollywood Hills.

It's difficult to know what he's up to since there's never much personal information available.

So is Ben still living with a male friend ?

by Anonymousreply 18408/25/2016

If he's 35 and living exclusively with one male friend, then he has entered the "confirmed bachelor" stage, meaning he doesn't need to come out because people already know the deal.

by Anonymousreply 18508/25/2016

At least Garrett Clayton, Ben Savage, Brian J. Smith, Jonathan Bennett, and others don't really mention girls. It's unsaid, but silently acknowledged.

It was always weird that Ben Barnes constantly brings up girls in interviews. It's been a few years since he's been popular though, so maybe he's past that phase. I guess we'll see when his HBO show and Narnia put him (kinda) back in the spotlight.

There is an interview from 2011 where the interviewer tries to get him to say something about his personal life by saying that he had previously interviewed Max Irons who mentioned he was going out that evening or something with Ben and Ben's girlfriend. He refused to comment at all though. Max himself mentioned last year in Out that an actor he considers to be a good friend was thinking about coming out. I thought he was talking about Douglas Booth, but maybe if he is friends with Ben, that may be the actor in question?

by Anonymousreply 23109/11/2016

Yep, both Ben and Dougie have been on the short list for some time. I can imagine the conflict for them though. Douglas is trying to land leading man roles in a cutthroat industry and Ben has struggled to do the same for 10 years. They are both tall and way too attractive to play most minor characters, so the thought of coming out probably scares the shit out of them...and their agents. It's probably only when Colton realized that he'd already found his (non-leading man) niche that he felt comfortable enough to come out. Hopefully Matt Bomer and Zachary Quinto (sort of) can open the door for more openly gay leads in a wider category of film.

by Anonymousreply 23209/11/2016

I was actually also wondering why Ben was never asked about kissing Max in Dorian Gray, just about Ben Chaplin. I get that he wasn't really known at the time, but the media always made it seem like that was the only male/male kiss in the film. I also vaguely remember Max mentioning that he hadn't known he'd be kissing Ben, but I can't remember if it was a script change or what the reason was exactly.

Overall it's been veeeery slow and uneventful. If HBO wants this show to come anywhere close to replacing Game of Thrones. They're going to have to turn it up. A lot. Thandie Newton's flashbacks in this last episode were well done, and a few people got shot, but where's the gratuitous blood, death torture, and sex!?
