This despite test-screening responses that seemed (emphasis on the "s" word) to indicate possible Oscar contention. Particular praise has gone to the performances of costars Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman.
This past Saturday, the 15-year-old Hannah Montana star had a one-night performance at the 4,000-seat MGM Grand venue at Foxwoods casino in Mashantucket, CT. A new picture from that event has surfaced of Miley sporting some interesting scribbling on her left wrist:
Jessica Simpson looked out of touch with reality as she made her way into Madeo restaurant on Wednesday night (October 1) in West Hollywood, CA.
While it seems her busy career is taking her toll on her it doesn't mean she wouldn't make time for more work, the singer recently said she would love to another reality show, but this time a cooking show.
She says "I'd love to be on a cookery show like Top Chef. Or appear with a celebrity chef. I feel like I'm a pretty good cook. I make really good chicken 'n' dumplings. But I use simple recipes, so I don't know how great I would do."source
Angelina Jolie is a busy woman, on top of running her ever growing household, she just touched down in New York City and has signed on for the sequel of Kung Fu Panda.
But it has been reported that the actress could be signing on to a new Tomb Raider movie, based on the upcoming eight game from the series, Underworld.
While the new Tomb Raider model thinks she is the best Lara Croft, it seems Hollywood bosses prefer Jolie.
A source told The Sun that “Lara is such a fantastic character and the games lend themselves to movies so well, even though the first two movies were not very well received, there is still a lot of confidence in Lara and Tomb Raider as a franchise. The producers would dearly love to get Angelina back in the role and the door is being left open to her. This would be a far darker movie with a lot more emphasis on storyline.”
Australia and New Zealand's musical theatre communities are planning a series of tributes, including a public memorial service in Melbourne, for entertainer Rob Guest, who died this morning after suffering a massive stroke.

Friends are planning a public service at a Melbourne theatre - either the Regent or the Princess - with songs and speeches.
Guest's family met this afternoon to discuss arrangements for the service, in about ten days' time, and also a private funeral to be held early next week.( Collapse )

On the show influencing her own personal style: Yeah, of course, of course. It makes you much more aware of what you put on, aware of trends and styles. And in a photo shoot, especially one like this, it’s kind of cool to try something new. I’m not trying to go overtly sexy or too fashion-y. I have a lot more knowledge of designers and things like that. But I think it has a lot less to do with what designers you wear and what the trends are than who you are and what you feel good in. I still feel good in jeans and T-shirts for every day, so that hasn’t changed. But I like dressing up more.
On if she thinks about what she is wearing because she is in the public eye: Not really. You can’t pay attention to what tabloids say. That’s not what my job is about—it’s not about getting judged by other people. And while fashion is an awesome, exciting part of my job, because that’s what the show is partly about, it really doesn’t define who you are. You look ridiculous if you dress for people other than yourself. It’s just sad.
On what is coming up in Gossip Girl: There’s a lot of Chuck and Blair stuff. At the end of last season, he totally blew it. I think when he comes back, he kind of regrets what he did. He wants to make up for it, but he’s not going to be able to. Blair will not let him get off that easy, she’s going to make it a little difficult for him. She’s seeing a guy named Lord Marcus; he’s from England, and of course, it makes Chuck incredibly jealous. And it’s hard, Blair really does want something, but she can’t let her guard down because she’s been hurt a lot. Of course, nothing can be perfect for her, even though all she ever strives for is to be perfect. And there’s a lot of Serena and Blair “frenemy” stuff…
On why people try to make a rivalry between her and Blake Lively: I couldn’t tell you, to be honest. I think it does have to do with being a girl. And I think that people are just not creative. They want us to be our characters on the show. They want us to all be dating each other and fighting with each other, when in reality it’s a TV show.source

Inside, the actress-producer-director-U.N. Ambassador Against Hunger makes a shocking confession. Get this: Drew is...a Democrat who supports Obama. In Hollywood, who would have thought? However, she still encourages all young people to vote, no matter the candidate, natch.
But we’re more concerned with the packaging. Happy, carefree pictures like this come off as way more inspiring than the creepy Saw-like Jessica Alba Declare Yourself PSA. Smiles over Hannibal Lecter masks!

Drawing an end to her short trip to the east coast, Britney Spears was spotted arriving at JFK Airport for a departing flight out of New York City on Thursday (October 2).
Accompanied by her father and security personnel, the "Womanizer" singer carefully made her way through a crowd of onlookers - venturing towards the security checkpoint.
During her visit to the Big Apple, Miss Spears promoted her new single, also visiting Philip Sousa Middle School in the Bronx borough of New York City to meet and greet student.
As previously reported by Gossip Girls, the comeback queen presented the students with a $10,000 check via Elizabeth Arden, which is to be used as an endowment for the school’s new music program.
To finish off the trip, Brit spent her final night out at Soho house before heading over to the Box nightclub to take in a burlesque show - possibly to get some ideas for her tour-in-the-making.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Panda-ing to fans, DreamWorks Animation has officially confirmed that a sequel to its animated hit "Kung Fu Panda" is in the works and has set a release date of June 3, 2011.
The film, which will reunite Jack Black, as kung fu fan Po, Angelina Jolie and other members of the original voice cast, will be released in 3-D -- the new standard for all DreamWorks Animation movies starting next year -- on regular and Imax screens worldwide.
The 2011 date means that "Panda" will be sharing the summer box-office schedule with Disney/Pixar's "Cars 2," which Disney moved last week from a 2012 release to summer 2011.
The original "Panda," which grossed more than $626 million worldwide, is DreamWorks Animation's most successful nonsequel. It will be released on DVD and Blu-ray November 9.

Although preliminary tests have found the growth to be benign, the Emmy-winning domestic goddess, a former chain smoker, must undergo surgery to have the lump removed, the National Enquirer reports. The procedure will leave the chatty culinary expert without her voice for approximately two months, tabloid insiders says.
“Rachael’s first thoughts were she had throat cancer….She thought she was going to die!”
“Doctors told her they plan to remove the growth,” an Enquirer spy blabs, “And she will not be able to speak for up to two months.”
Rachael is presently taping a “marathon” of segments that will air on her hit daytime series, The Rachael Ray Show, while she recuperates from surgery.

Now this is more like it. With all due respect to animated movies, we’ve been writing about talking bears and pandas all morning and were crying out for something with a bit of substance.
And movie news doesn’t come much more substantial than the reteaming of Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro, does it?
The dream team – the guys who made (deep breath) Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The King Of Comedy, New York, New York, Cape Fear, Goodfellas and Casino together – haven’t worked together since 1995. Since then, there have been flirtations – most notably on The Winter Of Frankie Machine (which De Niro is now set to make with Michael Mann) – but nothing concrete.
But now, the duo look set to work together again on the Paramount crime flick, I Heard You Paint Houses. Huzzah, hurrah, hurray!
The movie will be based on a book by Charles Brandt, a writer who befriended an Irish hitman called Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran (told you he was Irish) before he died in 2004. Sheeran confessed a number of killings to Brandt including, so it’s claimed, the dismemberment of the famous missing Teamster boss, Jimmy Hoffa.
But Sheeran was also reported to have killed around 25 people while working for the Mob (the book’s title is taken from hitman slang for blood splatter on walls).
Sounds like typical Scorsese/De Niro territory to us, but we’re sure that the duo can find something new to mine here.
It’s early days yet – De Niro has signed on as Sheeran, but Scorsese has just brought on Steven Zaillian to adapt the book into a screenplay. So it could be a couple of years before anything happens with this – but we’re hopeful.
Scorsese has, of course, forged a fruitful working relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio over the last few years (four movies and counting!), but the sparks he creates in tandem with De Niro are special. They’re more than special – they’re cinema history, and we can’t wait to see those sparks fly again.
Scorsese will produce the movie, along with De Niro and his producing partner, Jane Rosenthal.
