Tarantino talks 'Basterds'

May 10, 2009
‘Bunch of Guys on a Mission Movie’


“THIS ain’t your daddy’s World War II movie,” Quentin Tarantino said with a grin, standing on a street corner here that had been scrubbed of 21st-century signposts to become the set of “Inglourious Basterds,” his new film about a band of Jewish-American soldiers on a scalp-hunting revenge quest against the Nazis.

Paul Rodgers No Longer A Servant To Queen

Paul Rodgers will no longer be kneeling before Queen - he has quit the rock super-group to concentrate on reforming Bad Company.

Rodgers recently toured with Queen founders Brian May and Roger Taylor and fronted the group on its first release of new material since the death of Freddie Mercury. Fans hope that Queen + Paul Rodgers would become a permanent fixture, but the singer insists his collaboration with May and Taylor was never meant to be forever.

And, as he plans for dates with his old band Bad Company, Rodgers tells, "At this point we're gonna sit back from this. My arrangement with (May and Taylor) was similar to my arrangement with Jimmy (Page) in The Firm, in that it was never meant to be a permanent arrangement. I think we made a huge success of it, actually. We did two world tours and a couple of live recordings, and... made a studio album, which was pretty historical because they (May and Taylor) hadn't really gone in the studio with anybody and recorded something like that for a very long time. So it was quite an achievement, I think."

However, Rodgers isn't ruling out a possible charity concert reunion with the Queen stars: "If they approach me to do something for charity... or something like that... I'd be very much into doing that, for sure."

Queen + Paul Rodgers will release a concert album and DVD, Live in Kharkov, in June.

This one hurt a little bit, didn't it? Lost's fifth-season finale, "The Incident," was one of the show's more morose and hopeless outings in some time. Many terrible things happened and there was just one lone puppy dog on the scene to help make things happier. (There's only so much the fuzzy fella can do!)

If you haven't watched yet, you really need to spin up that DVR and see what happened, but if you have seen tonight's episode and you're ready to discuss, grab some dog treats for Vincent and get in here...

When it comes to promoting Grey's Anatomy's two-hour season finale (airing Thursday at 9 pm/ET, ABC), Chyler Leigh delivers... and then some. Not two weeks after welcoming her third child into the world, Leigh took to talking up the season-ender, in which big twists surely are ahead for the likes of Izzie and perhaps George, sure, but also Lexie and her sweet romance with Mark.
Here, Leigh offers a glimpse at what's on tap this week, reflects on the romance that was not meant to be, and shares her take on two possible goodbyes.

This is a Chuck Bass/Ed Sexwick post

Are you now saying ‘warder’ instead of ‘water’ to become more understood in the US?
Not yet. I’ve been fortunate enough to get to travel around a little bit and out in the sticks they find it a little more difficult to understand me. I was in this small town in New Jersey once and, given that it’s quite close to New York, you would expect them not to be surprised by a British accent, but this woman came over to me and yelled [adopts screechy American accent]: ‘Y’ll from England?’ I’ve also been mistaken for an Aussie once or twice, which is quite strange.

Do your fellow cast members ever try to do a British accent?
It has been tried a few times but they mainly aren’t very good. Although Leighton [Meester, who plays Chuck’s love interest, Blair Waldorf] is fond of doing her Keira Knightley, and she’s funny with it. The rest of them are pretty over the top like most Americans are when they try to do an accent.

Do you ever method act Chuck’s role?
I’ve never tried it. I’ve not turned up drunk on set yet or tried to punch Penn [Badgley, who plays Dan Humphrey]. It’s a teen show, I don’t think the advertisers would be too happy.

Chuck’s wardrobe is pretty fly. Do you ever get to take the gear home?
I wish. It all belongs to Warner Brothers and just goes in storage at the end of the season. It’s a shame, there’s a lot of cool stuff in there – some of the suits are amazing – though it might look a bit funny if I was walking down the street in something I’d worn on the telly the night before.

How are you faring with the ladies since the show’s success?
I’ve been getting some weird mail, that’s for sure. Unfortunately, I have a situation now where Chace and I live in a residential building in New York and there have been a couple of nights where some of the girls who live there have obviously got a bit drunk and written love letters and slipped them under the door. We have one stuck up on the fridge.

What does it say?

She goes on some rant about how she is not like other girls and I should give her a call and we should hang out.

Chuck and Blair are the best characters, shouldn’t they be the stars of the show rather than Dan and Serena?
I find the Dan and Serena thing slightly annoying. If that was me, I wouldn’t put up with all the on-off bulls***. I think if a relationship feels right, you should just give it a go.

As Ed, would you go for hot young Serena or Lily, her sexy mum?
Tough one. Lily has the money, so probably her.

In real life, you’re rumoured to be dating both Chace who plays Nate and Jessica who plays Vanessa; Blake who plays Serena is meant to be dating Penn who plays Dan; Leighton who plays Blair is meant to be dating Sebastian, who plays Carter. Are you as confused as me?
I am. The show’s based on a woman who spreads gossip on the internet, so I guess the concept of the show is stretching out into real life. People chop and change in their relationships. Life imitates art and art imitates life.

Have the ‘Ed and Chace are gay’ rumours been put to bed?
I hope so. I don’t think anyone with half a brain seriously thought there was anything in that. Some of the more gossipy magazines take a hot topic and run with it but anyone who knows us knows we are just mates.

Have you ever signed off with XOXO?
Yes I have – at the bottom of text messages. At first I didn’t really get it – it means ‘hugs and kisses’. They use it quite a lot in the States but I won’t be incorporating it into my autograph or anything.


an eminem post

Eminem says he and Jimmy Kimmel will fly about 200 laid-off autoworkers to Los Angeles for Friday's taping of his appearance on Kimmel's show.

The Michigan rapper says he and Kimmel want to remind everyone that real people are being affected by what's going on in Detroit.

He tells the Detroit Free Press, through his publicist, that news reports ignore people who have lost their jobs without getting big payouts after dedicating themselves to the auto industry.

Eminem says he and Kimmel also want to show some of the autoworkers "a good time while we're at it."

He's promoting the upcoming release of "Relapse," his first studio album in four years.

Eminem will also appear on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on May 19 and May 22.


i have to give him credit for this. some good news out of this economical mess.

Random bit from Latina magazine - "My Weekend With Amy Winehouse"

I just returned from St. Lucia’s 18th Annual Jazz Festival. I'm back to reality here in NYC and, boy, was St. Lucia unreal.

It was my first experience at this bustling festival filled with folks from all over the world. There were people on balconies, on the grass, in tents and everywhere else waiting to see the great lineup. It was lots of fun and, more important, I got to shake my booty more than I have the entire year! The festival got off to a great start: KC and the Sunshine Band impressed me with their sound. Their dance moves, on the other hand? That's another story! Patti Labelle worked the crowd and Chaka Kahn rocked the stage and had every single last woman (and even some men) singing “I’m Every Woman” just in time for Mother’s Day.

Now, the big headliner that everyone was anxious to see was Amy Winehouse. She was set to take to the stage in what we all hoped would be her big comeback. Unfortunately, it turned out to be more like a cry for help. Her wafer–thin body came teetering on stage in six-inch Louboutin heels (that she kept taking off) and a tight dress that sagged off her body. Even her signature beehive seemed deflated. The singing sensation seemed to be lost in a world of her own, only able to remember parts of lyrics, dancing off-beat and even completely changing up a song because she was ”bored." Yet, in spite of all the drama (not to mention a torrential downpour), no one moved. We were all transfixed, watching the train wreck unfold before our eyes. Then the weekend started to get strange.

I was sitting in a lounge chair the next day, catching some sun, when a petite girl with black wavy hair, bamboo earrings and black eyeliner sits right on down on the edge of my chair, asks me my name and introduces herself as Amy (as if I didn’t know it was Amy Winehouse!). We talked about the show the night before, and I tried to give her a little pep talk, even though there wasn't really any saving grace to the whole fiasco. Amy, sounding like a little girl, complimented my nail color and bag and hugged me, saying, “I think I love you, Verky.” Then she frolicked down the beach, which is how it seems she spends the majority of her days in St. Lucia. She suddenly turned and screamed out to me, "Wait! Are you a lesbian? Oh, well neither am I!" Glad we cleared that up.

While I lay there, following her with my eyes, I thought about all the people standing in the rain to watch her, her inability to perform for us and the combination of excitement and sadness that our encounter made me feel. I came to the conclusion that, although Amy Winehouse is lost in her own world right now, there something about her that makes it almost impossible not to want to follow. Whether it’s her crazy vibe, celebrity status or drug-and-alcohol-fueled insanity; there is just something about Amy that is magnetic, even when she is falling apart.

This is an adorable children (and future BFF) post.

He surreptitiously replaces her donor’s semen with his own and is then forced to live with the secret that he is the child’s real father.

Blind Items! Who's In the Secret Underage Gay Sex Tape That's Being Passed Around Hollywood?

Today we have a nasty old actor who's been having 'em young, a drugged out actor who peed on everything, and a secret West Hollywood sex tape that's really raunchy.

1. Which infamously perverted actor should start checking his dates' IDs? He may not realize that he recently went out with some serious jailbait!

2. A C+ list actor on a fairly hit non network show. He is one of the leads. Mostly television. Anyway, drugs were considered to be one of the reasons his marriage fell apart. Apparently things have not got much better. At a party a few weeks ago he was at the home of a producer of his new movie. Our actor was feeling no pain and was doing coke like a fiend and drinking shot after shot of whiskey as well. This was a big house and the guests had all been directed to use one or two of the bathrooms. Our actor decided that a bathroom was too small for him. So, every hour or so when he went to, ummm relieve himself, he used a bedroom instead of a bathroom. Over the course of the evening he managed to mark his territory on ever piece of furniture, carpeting, bed, and a good portion of the walls. He thought it was funny as hell and at the end of the night told everyone what he had done. The next morning he was kicked off the movie, and ended up forking over about $10,000 in damages.

3. There's a tape floating around the black market in WeHo. It features a current tween favorite. Those who have seen it say that it's much more disgusting than the Paris Hilton tape. This one involves more than two people, same-sex activity among both girls and boys, and our star in every position possible. Did I mention our star is believed to have been underage (somewhere between thirteen and seventeen) when it was filmed?

M.I.A. son 'to inherit £5 billion fortune'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

M.I.A.'s three-month-old son Ikhyd has been revealed as the heir to a £5.3 billion (~~$8.1 billion USD) fortune.

The 'Paper Planes' singer's fiance Benjamin Bronfman, 26, is expected to inherit the vast sum of money, which will eventually be passed down to the couple's son.

The fortune was amassed by the Bronfman family, owners of the now defunct Seagram company - once the largest distiller of alcoholic beverages in the world.

M.I.A. and Bronfman are yet to marry, but sources claim that the fortune will play no part in their decision.

"She doesn't really care about money. But it helps," a friend told Us Weekly.

"They will do the marriage thing when time permits."

The British-born star was recently described as "the hottest thing around" by David Hasselhoff.

It's Official: Kristin Cavallari is Heading to 'The Hills'

Rumors have been circulating for weeks that former Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari was in talks to replace Lauren Conrad on The Hills. Now, EW can exclusively confirm that Cavallari will indeed be starring in MTV's reality series. The 22-year old's first appearance will be the May 31st season finale (she catches the bouquet at Heidi and Spencer’s wedding, natch) and she'll appear in 10 episodes this fall. Cavallari, now a budding actress, is fully prepared to stir things up. “It’s a TV show,” she explains. “I’m not going into it like, ‘I’m going to make great friendships with these people.’ It’s work! And drama sells. I think that’s why they’re bringing me in, because I know what works.” Cavallari had plenty more to reveal in her exclusive interview with EW.

On why she’s coming back to reality TV:
“The goal for me is to get my fans excited about me again. When I first started out, I had a celebrity name but I didn’t have the acting skills I have now. If I have some buzz with my name again, I feel like it will only help.”

On rumors that producers are plotting a romance between her and Justin Bobby (which The Hills producers deny):
“I have no idea! [laughs] I don’t think MTV would be like, ‘Oh you’re dating him now. This is your boyfriend.' But they might try and set up situations. I’m totally cool with that. Again, it’s a TV show and they need to make it entertaining.”

On how her version of The Hills will differ from Lauren’s:
“I’m a completely different person than Lauren. I have a lot more energy. I’m more outgoing. I’m a little more spontaneous. And she has a boyfriend so she’s not dating on the show. I’m very open to dating and finding a guy.”

On introducing Heidi and Spencer:
“It’s so funny. I guess it was 4 years ago. I was dating Brody [Jenner] and Spencer was Brody’s best friend. I had known Heidi when she was friends with Lauren when we were still filming Laguna Beach. Heidi was like, ‘Hook me up with someone. I wanna meet a guy.’ And Brody and I were kinda like, ‘Well, maybe Spencer?’ We’ll see what happens.’ So we all went on a double date and they just hit it off right away and now they’re married.”

A.F.I. Guitarist Jade Puget (the dude in the far left in the above picture took to the band's official message board yesterday. He gave an update on the album "Crash Love" and tour plans !!

I thought an update might be appreciated on what we’ve been up to the last month, and what we’ll be up to for the next few weeks.

We spent April at Henson Studios (yes, the one with the huge statue of Kermit the Frog on the roof) finishing up the last batch of songs for the record with the talented and witty Irish producer Jacknife Lee. He’s done tons of great work, from Regina Spektor and Bloc Party to U2 and R.E.M., plus he lets his daughters draw on him and then gets the drawings tattoed on. We came out of that session with some unique stuff and I think it really rounded out the record in a spectacular way.

Tomorrow, we start mixing with Rich Costey, who is also a prodigious mixer and producer. We actually worked with him years ago when we did that Nine Inch Nails cover, Head Like a Hole. He’s done great records as well, he mixed and produced the last 2 Muse albums, he’s done Mars Volta, Brand New, Interpol, Foo Fighters, Mastodon, and he can benchpress probably 105 pounds minimum, so we’re very much looking forward to how the mixes turn out.

As you know, we’ll be playing in Toronto at the end of June and doing festivals in Europe at the end of summer, but we’re starting to put together a slew of new tour dates, here and overseas, and we’ll keep you updated as we start confirming them.

We know it’s been a few minutes since our last record and tours but we appreciate you waiting patiently and not patiently for the 8th album to be completed.

It’ll be worth the wait.

"He had a substance abuse problem in the past. So when I first wanted to get sober, I called him and spoke to him about it because, you know, he's somebody who's in the business and can identify and relate to the lifestyle and how hectic things can be."

Ferrara to transform 'Jekyll'

Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent to star in redo

Abel Ferrara is taking another walk on the wild side with a re-imagining of Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," which will be contemporized and titled "Jekyll and Hyde."

Forest Whitaker and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson are attached to play the lead roles in the classic tale about a doctor who invents a potion that unleashes his violent alter ego.

Glasshouse Pictures' Brett Walsh and Cheetah Vision Films' Randall Emmett are producing; Luc Roeg, Michael Robinson and Andrew Orr are exec producing for U.K. production banner Independent. Sean Walsh, Bonnie Timmermann and Chris Lighty also receive exec producer credits.

Independent is handling international sales on the project, which will begin lensing in late summer.

"The combination of such formidable talent in front of and behind the camera will turn this wonderful gothic story into a modern classic for a whole new generation," said Roeg.

Kate Gosselin Scares Fans at Michigan Meet-and-Greet

In her first public appearance since acknowledging she and husband Jon Gosselin might split, Kate Gosselin briefly addressed their martial problems.

Accompanied by her bodyguard Steve Neild, Kate (who appeared exhausted and puffy-eyed) walked on stage at the Frauenthal Theater in downtown Muskegon, Mich., in a sleeveless, mauve V-neck dress and black leather peep-toe shoes.

The TLC reality show told the crowd of 800 she was surprised at the public interest in her marriage: "This is certainly not what I envisioned when I signed up for this."

"It's really, really difficult right now," she later admitted before pausing briefly. "And now back to our regularly scheduled programming!"

The crowd laughed.

Kate then gave a speech -- which she described as "the rawest, most real" talk she's ever given -- from her 2008 book Multiple Blessings.

She told the audience that ever since she was 12 she dreamed about being "a wife and a mom."

She thought her life plan was ruined when she was later diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, an endocrine disorder.

"But my dreams came true when I became pregnant with twins," she went on.

Later, after using fertility treatments, she learned she was pregnant again. "When they found seven babies, I started sobbing," she told the crowd. "The office sent us out the back door, I was sobbing so loudly."

Despite miscarrying the seventh baby, she said she persevered.

"I'm a 'Give me a mountain and I'll climb it' person. I never give up," she said. "At my 12-week ultrasound, I saw six little people with arms and legs, kicking and flipping around in their little circles. I started to love them as my babies that day, even though I was still scared to death."

Around the same time, her husband lost his IT job. ("At one point Jon stood in line at the Salvation Army," said Kate, who now earns $75,000 an episode for her TLC show, in addition to a slew of freebies.)

But things perked up after the six healthy babies were born: "Jon went back to work," she said.

"I missed him," she continued. "He was the fastest diaperer! He could go through the whole assembly line in seven minutes!"

After spending three years as a stay-at-home mom, she said life began to feel "redundant.... But moms are doing the best job in the world. You are growing the people who will run our world one day."

She then told the crowd, "I know that I am doing my best, even though that mommy guilt gets to you. Don't let it get to you, moms! Do your best and remember tomorrow is another day."

During a Q&A session after her speech, fans asked Kate if she and her family mind having the cameras around all the time. "The kids love them," she said. "They scream when they come over, and when it's goodbye, it's all hugs and kisses!"

Asked how she stays in shape, Kate said, "I torture myself on the elliptical machine at 5 a.m. Yuck! It's a great form of stress relief, though."

Fans had mixed reactions after seeing Kate.

At one point, a girl put her arm around Kate for a photo, but Kate's bodyguard waved her off. "Don't touch her," he told the girl.

Shannon Knapp, 34, Swartz Creek, Mich., told that she brought three gift bags with birthday gifts for Kate's sextuplets.

"Kate looked so intimidating - I didn’t even want to bring the gifts to her!" Knapp told Us. "I felt like I might get my hand slapped. Later, when I told her what the gifts were, she kind of warmed up and was nicer, but at first, she seemed very detached."

The 10 Most Disturbing Books Of All Time

In my younger days if I heard a book or movie was disturbing or hard to handle I generally took that as a challenge. Most books generally turned out to not be too bad, but occasionally I’d come across something that would leave me with a sick feeling in my stomach for weeks. I’ve largely outgrown this “genre” of late, but here are my picks for the ten most disturbing books of all time. Any one of these books is capable of leaving you feeling a little depressed at the least, and permanently scarred at the worst. I’d say enjoy, but that doesn’t really seem appropriate …

10. Blindness

Blindness is a book with a truly horrifying scenario at it’s heart: what if everyone in the world were to lose their sight to disease in a short period of time? The answer is actually somewhat predictable, but that doesn’t lessen the bleakness as society collapses quickly in this novel by Portugese author José Saramago. The story follows a group of characters who are among the first diagnosed and sent to be quarantined. Many think the book is an allegory dealing with spiritual blindness, but to me the book is all the more devastating when taken literally. An easily communicable virus that causes the recipient to lose their sight would be the end of things, and it wouldn’t be an easy end.

2) Britney Spears is reportedly planning to change the setlist for her upcoming European live dates.

The star, who kicks off her mini-residency at London's O2 arena on June 3, is expected to alter parts of 'The Circus: Starring Britney Spears' with new mixes and dance routines.

Writing on Twitter, her manager confirmed: "Should be getting some dope remixes for the show today. Brits going to rework and choreograph a few numbers for Europe."

Spears is rumoured to be considering performing her 2007 single 'Gimme More', which was not included in her North American shows.

The tour, which has so far amassed a gross revenue of $50 million (£33 million), was recently extended to include dates in Ireland and continental Europe.

3) The lawyer who tried to torpedo the Britney Spears conservatorship has just filed legal papers, contesting the restraining order issued against him and asking for a new trial ... this time by jury.

Jon Eardley, along with Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib, are bound by restraining orders after the conservators convinced a judge they were harassing Britney and her family.

Now Eardley says a jury should have made that decision and wants a new trial.

Mariah Carey Glams down for her Movie Role

Mariah Carey has starred in a movie called Precious. For it, she had to put on weight, go mostly makeupless, and just look rough to play a social worker.

ETA: You can view the trailer in this post, if you missed it.

This ain't Glitter 2.0, apparently. Also, none of the social workers I know look "rough".
ETA: I was being a little harsh. I just watched the trailer and it made me cry. I actually respect Mariah for this role and want to see this.

‘Star Trek’ Writers Reveal Their Most Controversial Script Decisions And Why They Made Them

They say that knowledge is power. If that’s the case, well, our readers must be some powerful “Star Trek”-loving mofos right now. Centering on the film’s huge opening and the sequel plans already underway, we’ve spent the last week leaking formerly top-secret info on the Captain Kirk scene that was never shot, revealing answers to the film’s burning questions, and running through things you may have missed while watching the movie.

Now that we can safely assume that most of you are past spoiler-warning territory (if you haven’t seen “Trek” by now, um, why?), here’s a few additional tidbits we were holding back. They come courtesy of “Trek” writers/producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, who recently told us about what they consider to have been their two gutsiest choices while writing the script.

Moakler: "I Just Couldn't Stand Behind" Miss California's "Lies"

Shanna Moakler is still worked up about how the Miss California brouhaha has played out.

A day after she stepped down from her post as codirector of the state pageant in the wake of Donald Trump deciding Carrie Prejean would keep her crown, Moakler choked up as she explained herself to E! News' Ryan Seacrest this morning.

"When I was at the press conference, I really believed at that moment in time that maybe things are going to change, maybe this particular situation can work out," she said. "I went back to my hotel room and I just had a very, very difficult time.

"The turning point for me, I guess, was when I was watching the Today show and she was sitting there continuing to lie," the former Miss USA continued. "And it's obvious to everybody that the lying is still going on. I just couldn't stand behind her."

Moakler also shared a promise Trump made but neglected to mention during the media event.

"I wasn't going to New York with this vendetta against her and hoping that she would be decrowned. But I was hoping that she would, at one point in time, stop pointing fingers at everyone in the world and take a little bit of accountability or a little bit of responsibility for herself.

"In the room with Donald, he did say, 'If she continues to breach her contract, I'll fire her.' He did say that in the room, and I believe him 100 percent. I wish he had said it at the press conference. Instead I feel like she got basically rewarded for lying."

Moakler added, "Saying the wind is blowing her top when she's barely wearing a top, it looks foolish."

Listeners could hear the star get particularly emotional as she talked about coming to her conclusion to step away from her post.

"How am I supposed to aggressively promote someone that I don't even know if they're being truthful with me," she asked. "I work hard. I worked hard on that pageant and this has been a very, very—I'm sorry, I'm getting emotional—difficult decision for me because I love the Miss California organization and I love my family over there and the friends that I've made and the commitment that I had. I just don't think the situation right now is right."

Emma DIVA Watson...a pain on the set of Deathy Hallows

Of all the "Harry Potter" stars, Emma Watson always has been the most "testy," according to a production staffer who has worked on most of the films based on J.K. Rowling's super-popular novels about the famous boy wizard.

But word coming from Wales -- where "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1" is being shot (back-to-back with "Part 2") -- has the young actress being "more of a pain than usual."

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and the rest of the cast "are a dream to work with," said the source Wednesday, "But Emma is even more moody than usual. ... She's always complaining, showing up late and has upset both cast and crew members with her rudeness. ... She's really become a big diva. ... Everyone's sick of it."

• Based on the final book in Rowling's amazing publishing franchise, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1," is scheduled for release Nov. 19, 2010. "Part 2" will come out July 15, 2011. Before all that, of course, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" opens July 15

New 'Veronika Decides to Die' Trailer

The story centers on Veronika, a woman in her mid twenties who appears to have everything: good looks, good job and a great life ahead of her. Yet she decides to end her own life. She is unsuccessful and awakens in a mental hospital where she learns that she has five days to live. We learn that the reason that she attempted suicide was that she felt so constrained by the rules and expectations of 'normal' society that she had concluded that she had experienced all that life had to offer. However in the hospital she meets people who are only 'insane' because they don't always follow society's rules. With little left to lose, Veronika embarks on a journey on which she frees herself to experience relationships and emotions and ultimately discovers what it means to live.


Anna Friel talks about preparing to play Holly Golightly on stage

Anna Friel serves up a sexy treat for new Breakfast at Tiffany's stage role

Anna Friel has set herself a hectic schedule as she prepares to transform into Holly Golightly, the heroine of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Anna described Holly as a ‘bad little good little girl’.

‘Holly’s a heroine for a lot of females because she doesn’t follow the rules,’ she added.

The actress, confirming a story this column broke, will play Holly in an adaptation of Capote’s novel on the London stage in September — nearly half a century after Audrey Hepburn portrayed Holly on the big screen.

‘My Holly will have a lot more rough edges than Audrey’s,’ Anna told me.

Playwright Samuel Adamson has adapted Capote’s story for a production that will begin previews at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, on September 9, with a gala first night on September 29.

Hilarie Burton says she might return as a guest star next season for One Tree Hill

We know Hilarie Burton will not return to "One Tree Hill" as a series regular next season, but is it possible Peyton may pop back up on the show again?

Burton's answer: "Never say never."

In an interview with's Michael Ausiello, Hilarie makes it clear that reports of behind-the-scenes turmoil and contract negotiation drama were greatly exaggerated and that she leaves the show feeling very lucky to have been a part of it.

Burton even stated that "everyone was kind of agreeable about the situation" and because -- spoiler alert -- the writers didn't kill Lucas or Peyton off, an occasional guest appearance is still a possibility.

She also mentioned that she's keeping her business down in North Carolina -- where the show shoots -- so she'll be in the neighborhood.

So, you know, I'd say the return of Peyton at some point next year is more than possible.

Having met Hilarie Burton a couple times and seeing first hand how much she cares about "OTH," I'd say Peyton stopping by Tree Hill again is probable. But that's just my prediction...

no thank you - just evaporate and don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Why Does Amy Winehouse Still Get Performing Gigs?

Why do venues still continue to book Amy Winehouse? Her recent concert at the St. Lucia Jazz Festival was embarrassing and painful to watch. But she hasn't really put on a real, good show for a long time and clearly has some problems.
—Beth, West Bend, Wisc.

I contacted a tour marketer/concert promoter about this. The answer I got may shock you. Be sitting down right now. Are you sitting down? Are you lying to me? Do you think I can't see you?

So the Amy Winehouse that concert promoters see is apparently very different from the Amy Winehouse you think you know...

...and that Amy is actually a fairly decent performer.

New Star Trek 2 Rumors Start to Emerge

The film has only been out for a week, but that hasn't stopped fans from speculating on what they will see in the next chapter of JJ Abrams recently rebooted and refurbished Star Trek series. Our friend Devin over at Chud recently published a list of the five things Star Trek 2 should avoid. (You can read that list here.) Not mentioned is more Captain Pike. Which should bode well for Bruce Greenwood, since the film seems to be heading in that direction.

We just got off the phone with Greenwood after chatting with him about the great weekend Star Trek had at the box office. In speaking with the actor, he revealed that he has created quite a backstory for Captain Pike, which JJ Abrams hopes to utilize in the upcoming sequel. Unlike the original Pike, Greenwood's interpretation of the character will eventually rise from his wheelchair to one-day walk again. While this isn't exactly news, Greenwood hinted that Pike's personal story, as it pertains to this version of the new Star Trek timeline, would be tied directly into Captain Robert April, who, according to the Star Trek animated series, was the original Captain of the Starship Enterprise. April was only seen in one episode of the animated series. His voice was supplied by James Doohan, otherwise known as Scotty, and in the Star Trek Encyclopedia, his profile is accompanied by a picture of series creator Gene Roddenberry in a Starfleet uniform. Neither Paramount nor Roddenberry ever considered the animated series part of the official Star Trek cannon, which has led to debate about April's place as the first captain of the Enterprise. The character is certainly up for interpretation, as a human actor has never before portrayed him on screen. Who do you think would be perfect for the role?

Official news of Star Trek 2 heading into production hasn't been announced yet, but as the box office grosses continue to pour in, you can expect to hear about it soon.

STAR IS BORN? Miss California to Guest-Host one hour on FOXNEWS 'FOX & FRIENDS'... Developing...

Miss California and Miss USA runner-up, Carrie Prejean, tossed around in the battle over gay marriage, will be a one-day guest host for Fox News Channel's popular morning show Fox & Friends, Whispers learns. She will host the 6 a.m.-to-7 a.m. slot on May 27, filling in for Gretchen Carlson—the 1989 Miss America—who will be off that day.

The decision to make her a one-day cohost was finalized yesterday—the same day Prejean and Miss USA owner Donald Trump appeared on Fox & Friends.

Suzanne Scott, Fox vice president for programming, filled me in on the details of the gig for Prejean, who was thrust into the headlines when she rejected gay marriage during the Q&A part of the pageant. "We're just using her one time," she said, "to sit with the boys and have some fun." The boys are cohosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. "She has become a national celebrity in the last few weeks, and it's a fun thing to do," said Scott. "It's a good way to try get a little buzz and fun for the show. We'll see what happens with it," she added.

Fox & Friends has used news celebs before, and some have gone on to bigger and better things. Scott recalled using Tiki Barber on Fox & Friends while he was a member of the New York Giants. "He went off to become a TV star," she said. However, said Scott, there have been no talks with Prejean about a future with Fox.

Scott didn't know yet what the focus of the May 27 show will be, and Prejean might have to come in the day before to prepare.


Eminem Debated Whether to Parody Jessica Simpson's Weight

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Eminem is known for saying exactly what he feels, but even he thought twice before lampooning Jessica Simpson in his latest video. In the video for "We Made You," a heavy Simpson lookalike eats a hamburger and gyrates in her daisy dukes with a Tony Romo lookalike.

"Tony Romo is one of my favorite quarterbacks," Eminem tells Detroit's Metro Times. "So I felt kinda conflicted doing the Jessica thing."

The original plan was to have a slender Jessica Simpson lookalike in the video. "When I say, 'Jessica Simpson, sing the chorus,' we were gonna have a chick who looked like Jessica Simpson come out and sing,' he says.

As the video was shooting, Simpson's curvier figure started making headlines, prompting Eminem to change the video. "But then Jessica got fat," he says. "I mean, not really fat but she certainly got fat for ... well, Jessica Simpson got fat for Jessica Simpson!"

In the interview, Eminem says that his singles are "little time capsules of what's going on in pop culture right at that moment."

Gerard Butler Charged with Crime

Gerard Butler has another notch on his belt, but this time it ain't a chick ...he's scored a criminal charge.

Butler has been charged with misdemeanor criminal battery in connection with a run-in with a photog on October 7, 2008. At 2 AM, after a premiere party for "RockNRolla," Butler left Crown Bar in a limo and allegedly popped a papper in the lips three or four times. The L.A. City Attorney filed the charge yesterday.

Butler's reps have said the papper had stalked the star, and chased people through the streets. The rep claims the papper almost killed a pedestrian.

If convicted, Butler could face up to 6 months in jail.

Butler is due in court for an arraignment on June 10.

Butler's lawyer, Blair Berk, declined comment.

Demoted stars David Cross as the guy who takes constant crap from his co-workers at the tire company, UNTIL ONE DAY, the boss dies, Cross inherits the job, and sets out to exact revenge. HIJINKS, color yourself ENSUE.

Demoted comes from the director of American Pie 2 and Say it Ain’t So (about Chis Klein accidentally falling in love with his sister), and unfortunately, looks a lot more like those than it does any of David Cross’ non-Alvin & the Chipmunks-related work. In fact, it appears to be one long collection of high-larious pranks and zany antics. Oh my gosh you guys, Stifler jizzed in my tea again! Damn, you, Stifler! You’re just too wild and crazy!

Fads are a dime a dozen among red-carpet regulars, but there's one Tinseltown trend that won't be fading away any time soon: going vegetarian!

We couldn't possibly pick our favorite Hollywood hottie with a heart—they're all winners to us—so we need your help to crown the world's sexiest vegetarians. These stars' reasons for keeping animals off their plates are as diverse and inspiring as their talents.

Super Bitch passes H-Duff without saying 'Hello'

The Legendary Christina Aguilera refuses to acknowledge little Hilary Duff's existence:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Somedays, she’s a super b*tch, indeed!

The legendary Christina Aguilera was out at Mozza on the night of mother’s day, April 10th. And apparently, Hilary, her mom and Mike was at the same block at the same time to have dinner at a restaurant.

Hilary sports an all black outfit, contradicted by a green purse which she has been using the whole week.

Aguilera, looking the other way, ignored Hilary while on her way up to her car. While Hilary, avoiding her direction, squeezed herself to avoid diva-attitude shoulder bumping. They didn’t acknowledge each other.

When the photographer told Hilary about Aguilera, she said “Yeah.”

I don’t think the close relationship between Joel-Nicole and Jordan-Christina has something to do with this, right? Joel would never talk bad about Hil. Never. </sarcasm>

Nah, we bet Xtina is a kind b*tch!

The True Gossip Girl out and about

How not to get out of car... by Beth Ditto: Gossip singer makes a revealing exit on big night out

Phew: Beth Ditto arrives with a thump on the pavement in Camden at the Proud Galeries for the start of her big night out

Someone needs to remind Beth Ditto about the rules of stepping out of a car when there are teams of photographers on hand to capture the moment.
The Gossip singer made a rather ungraceful exit from her car last night during an evening out in London's Camden. With her black dress rolled up to her waist, revealing her ripped tights and a lot more besides, the 28-year-old struggled out of the vehicle.
However, it's not as if the larger than life star prides herself on her poise and elegance - far from it.

The serial stage-stripper, who most recently got her kit off during a performance at Radio 1's Big Weekend on Sunday, was an attendee at the Proud Galleries last night where DJ Mark Ronson played a set.
And it seemed the lesbian singer certainly had a rock and roll night on the tiles.
As if her car exit wasn't bad enough, she was later seen leaving celebrity hang out Bungalow 8 in central London with a coat over her head with her tights in shreds.

Tight spot: Beth Ditto's dress rides up to her waist exposing her knickers and ripped tights as she exits the cab

The 'Real' versions of Carrie and Co.

The “Real Housewives of New York City” like to be a little “Sex and the City.”

After five of the six “Real” ladies hit Wall St. to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange, we couldn’t help but draw comparisons to an episode of the hit HBO show in which Carrie Bradshaw did the very same. Naturally, the “Housewives” couldn’t help themselves, either.

Jill Zarin was the first to point a finger. “LuAnn would be Samantha!” she chirped of Countess de Lesseps, who is separated from hubby Alexandre. “She’s like ... hot.” Chimed in Ramona Singer, “And she likes lots of sex!” De Lesseps simply laughed off the comparison, responding, “I’m adventurous!” Alex McCord relates to Miranda Hobbs — “I’m no-nonsense,” she quipped — while Kelly Bensimon thinks she’s more of a mix. “I’m both Charlotte and Carrie,” she said.

But Zarin begged to differ. “You’re a writer! You’re Carrie!” she yelled over the noise from the floor. “Okay, fine,” Bensimon sighed dramatically, rolling her eyes in Zarin’s direction. “I’m Carrie.” Singer, meanwhile, thinks that none of them can be just one character alone. “I’m like Carrie — I put my foot in my mouth all the time,” she said. “But I’m Samantha, too, because I’m very business-oriented.” Laughed McCord, “We all have a little Samantha in us!”

The ladies all feel that they should make an appearance in the upcoming “SATC” sequel. Said the countess with a smile, “We’re their kind of girls.”

Kelly thinks she's a mix of Charlotte and Carrie? Really? Delusional.
If you missed part 2 of the reunion, it airs again tonight at 11 central!

Carson Daly Pictures, Images and Photos

NBC has given a pick-up to Last Call with Carson Daly for the 2009-10 season. The 24-week exercising of an option on his current deal solidifies NBC’s late night lineup out of Conan O’Brien (who takes over The Tonight Show June 1) and Jimmy Fallon.

Like several shows returning next season on every network, the 1:35 a.m. show will be produced at a significantly lower cost basis than in previous years.

The show recently introduced a new format that takes it largely out of the studio and to locations mostly around Los Angeles, where it is shot. Daly does, however, conduct some interviews on a studio set.

The show, from Universal Media Studios, is currently in its eighth season. David Friedman is the showrunner.


Michael Lohan vows to catch Lindsay's home intruder

Lindsay Lohan's father has vowed to help police catch the man who attempted to raid the movie star's Hollywood home.

Surveillance cameras have picked up the suspicious man, who fled the actress' mansion on Tuesday after tripping the alarm system and now Michael Lohan has launched a bid to find out who is behind the break-in - because he feels sure it's someone close to his daughter.

He tells WENN, "I was on the phone with the police department in Hollywood today. This is disgusting because someone knew that Lindsay's in France with my daughter Ali right now - someone knew Lindsay was leaving the country and obviously it was someone close to her.

"I'm gonna find out who this person is and he's gonna have major problems."

'Star Trek’ Stars Chris And Zach Inspire Our List Of Top Hollywood Bromances

Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are, like, super dreamy. Sure, some would say their attractiveness stems from their indisputable good looks or even their stellar performances as Captain Kirk and Spock the latest “Star Trek” installment, but I contest that our admiration for the newly crowned heartthrobs is intrinsically linked to their — wait for it — bromance. Yes, Chris and Zach are BFFs and, if you, like me, have been obsessively watching the duo’s “Trek” press interviews, you know their witty banter and buddy dynamic makes them even more drool-worthy. The pair’s charismatic back-and-forth has quickly catapulted them into the esteemed company of some other famous best buds.

So here’s a look at our five favorite Hollywood bromances (aside from Chris and Zach, of course).

Brad Pitt and George Clooney
Their bromance basically fueled the entire “Ocean’s” film franchise and, let’s face it — not only are these two ridiculously good-looking, but they are just plain cool. Pair Pitt’s family-man persona with Clooney’s eternal bachelor status and these guys seem to complement each other perfectly. Throw in their respective philanthropic efforts and these two are like the Batman and Robin of Hollywood. Come on guys, make “Ocean’s 14.” We want more Pitt-Clooney shenanigans!

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
These two are like the godfathers of bromance. Long before the term became the go-to phrase for platonic man love, Affleck and Damon were Hollywood’s favorite friendship. They made the classic “Good Will Hunting” together and went on to prove that bromances are probably the longest lasting relationships in Hollywood. Ben and Matt are now both married and even have two daughters around the same age. Awww!

Brody Jenner and Spencer Pratt
Remember Brody’s short-lived reality show “Bromance” where he attempted to find a BFF to replace Spencer? Well, it’s safe to say the fame-loving duo have had their ups and downs — we’ve watched these two break up and make up, but the lifelong buds seem to finally be back to a happy bromance. All is right with the world again.
(Ugh...gross... DNW!)

Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford
The “Gossip Girl” stars can’t seem to escape the constant rumors that their “bromance” might be an actual romance. They’ve both denied the claims and have since been linked to just about every young actress in Hollywood. Being Chuck and Nate sure doesn’t suck.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire
Contrary to the rest of the stars on this list, these two like to keep their friendship on the down low. They are like the Beyoncé and Jay-Z of bromances. Aside from the occasional sighting courtside at a Lakers game, Leo and Toby don’t really ham it up for the photogs — but the fact that the two former child stars have been best friends since they both appeared on the early ’90s TV show “Parenthood” makes them worthy of a BFF shout-out.


I would definitely put Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki on this list...those boys don't know how to keep their hands to themselves...

The City's Erin Lucas thinks Kristin Cavallari is DESPERADO!

Kristin Cavallari has finally confirmed she will be replacing Lauren Conrad on MTV’s pseudo-reality show The Hills.

No stranger to drama, Kristin is already being targeted by Team Lauren. Let’s start with Erin Lucas, Whitney Port's BFF on sister show The City.

“Kristin’s got really big shoes to fill and an even bigger ego, so I can see disaster coming from a mile away,” Erin tells us. “Lauren is such a genuine girl. She wears her heart on her sleeve, and she was real with the whole thing. I don’t think Kristin is on that level."

“Wasn’t Kristin like all gung-ho about being an actress?” Erin hissed. “I mean, I read interviews last week, for that matter, where she’s quoted making fun of the show and trashing it and saying she would never be a part of it. So to go from trashing a show, to go on and replace the girl you f--ked over in high school…I don’t see it going anywhere pretty.”

Hills costar Stephanie Pratt isn’t too thrilled either. “I'm terrified,” she told reporters last night at Maxim’s Hot 100 party. “She’s no Lauren Conrad. She loves drama and catfights. I saw her on Laguna Beach.”

She added, “I don't know why it's still called The Hills. It belongs to Lauren.”

Kristin, on the other hand, believes she’s a perfect fit for the show. "Drama sells, [and] I think that’s why they’re bringing me in, because I know what works,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m a completely different person than Lauren. I have a lot more energy. I’m more outgoing. I’m a little more spontaneous.”

Kristin and Lauren notoriously fought over Stephen Colletti’s affections during the first two seasons of MTV’s reality series Laguna Beach. They eventually reconciled after the series was canceled.


I predict that good ole Ceiling Eyes will be ending each episode by saying "I can't believe this is all happening while Lauren's gone!"

Leno's Final ‘Tonight’ Guest? CONAN!

LOS ANGELES - Jay Leno's last guest on "Tonight Show" will be the man who's taking over for him — Conan O'Brien.

Leno wraps up his 17-year-run as host of NBC's late-night show on May 29. The network says that O'Brien will be Leno's final guest. Then O'Brien steps in as "Tonight" host June 1.

The big names making the cut for Leno's final week of shows include Mel Gibson, Prince and Billy Crystal — who was Leno's first guest when he took "Tonight" over from Johnny Carson in 1992.

Carson's final guests were Bette Midler and Robin Williams, who appeared on Carson's next-to-last show. He hosted his final "Tonight" broadcast without guests.

This fall, Leno will begin a daily prime-time show for NBC.

Kradam Finale! The Story Behind the Thumbnails

This story was shared by a friend of the Allen Family who attended the rehearsals this week in LA!

Did you notice Kris had his thumbnail repainted? Can you guess who painted it? That's right! Adam Lambert! Kris performed during Rock week with a painted thumbnail, and his homecoming footage captured the chipped polish. Tuesday night, however, Kris performed one of the best performances of the night (and the season, might I add) with a freshly painted thumbnail.

According to Megan Malone, Adam painted Kris's thumbnail after the homecoming visits and removed the polish from one of his own nails, stating "If you can carry around a piece of me, man; I can do the same for you." Malone said, "The Allens believe Kris wears the black fingernail polish in support of Adam because he wanted Adam in the finale. Also, Kris wanted to dispel any rumors claiming the two weren’t great friends." Kris and Adam were roommates in the Idol Mansion throughout their stay.

Thanks Megan for sharing the sweet story!

I figured I would post this because everyone in the American Idol posts has been asking about the story behind the painted thumb nail thing and let's be honest: It's precious.

Jamie Campbell Bower Lands Harry Potter Role

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The French Harry Potter site, L’ Univers de Harry Potter , spoke to Jamie’s manager at the Cannes Film Festival. Jamie’s manager confirmed what had long been rumored on Harry Potter sites, that Jamie Campbell Bower would be playing the role of Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is currently filming on the UK seacoast. The next installment, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was originally slated to open last November, but Warner Brothers changed their date to July (in fact they recently changed it to open two days earlier than announced) which opened up the opportunity for Twilight to run unchallenged in the teen market this past fall.



Paris Hilton party connected to neighborhood vandalism

Paris Hilton has been interviewed by the Los Angeles Police Department after several cars belonging to her neighbors were vandalized following a party at the socialite’s new Hollywood Hills home on Monday night.

The socialite threw a huge housewarming party at her new pad this weekend where some of her guests “did some vandalizing” which included, “keying some of the cars” and “egging some of the cars,” according to an LAPD spokesperson.

According to Paris, she was not involved and the party wasn’t at her home.

“I had nothing to do with this,” Paris told RadarOnline Wednesday. “We were at Doug’s [Reinhardt] new house on Monday night, and there were several friends of Doug’s playing poker inside. There is no food in the house, the sound system isn’t even hooked up yet.”

Police seeking two suspects in attempted break-in at Lindsay Lohan's home

The Los Angeles Police Department is requesting the public’s help in identifying two suspects believed to be involved in the attempted burglary at Lindsay Lohan’s dishelved Hollywood home on Tuesday.

“On May 12, 2009, a pair of burglars attempted to break into a home in the Hollywood Hills during broad daylight and their images were caught on surveillance video. The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating those suspects as well as the vehicle,” a spokesperson for the LAPD said in a statement released to Access Hollywood on Thursday.

Surveillance photos captured two passengers in a four-door gray Dodge Magnum station wagon “with paper plates and custom wheels parked in front of the home.”

The suspects exited the car and “walked through a gate and entered the backyard of the residence,” according to the police statement.

“Investigators believed that the suspect tried to gain entry by using an unknown type tool to pry open a back window and door. After the unsuccessful attempt, the suspects drove off.” One suspect covered his face with a bandana. He was also wearing a “two-tone baseball cap with an emblem,” the statement continued.

Pink back with Carey Hart and happy :)

It's a good thing Pink and her husband Carey Hart have a sense of humor.

The singer, who acknowledges in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres airing Friday that she and her ex are a couple again, says she finds it funny to perform her hit song "So What" – which contains some choice words for Hart.

"He's in the audience so when I sing, 'He's a tool,' now that's my favorite line," she tells DeGeneres. "Hi, Honey, that's you."

When the talk show host offers her congratulations on being "happy" and "back together" after splitting up, Pink says, "We are. Thank you."

Pink and Hart got married in Costa Rica in January 2006 and announced their split two years later, but, "We didn't do the paperwork deal," says Pink.

Asked if she and the motocross racer would consider having another wedding ceremony, Pink says coyly, "I love a party.",,20279142,00.html

FYI: Most people (me included) think Leighton looks better as a brunette.
There will probably still be a lot of comments about it in this post.

"YOU" premiere in Los Angeles, CA (May 13, 2009)

Last night I photographed a little premiere in Westwood at the historic Crest theater, for the film "YOU", which the tip sheet calls, "a love story." Melora Hardin ("The Office," "Hannah Montana: The Movie," "17 Again") directed, co-produced, and stars in the film alongisde her husband, Gildart Jackson ("Charmed," "Providence"), who wrote and stars in the film as well.

The tip sheet described this movie as "a family story spans 21 years and weaves a kind of family quilt of love and loss, speckled with magical realism, that is both a coming of age story for a father and his daughter as well as a story about strength, vulnerability, and courage in overcoming loss and finding love again."

Here is the trailer for the film:

Maybe red carpet photography is not the best field I should be in, because I have pretty awful facial recognition skills. Not only did I spend the whole day in classes (full-time graduate student) and work (part-time researcher), after I dragged myself home from the event I was up until 4 a.m. writing keywords and captions for all of the photos I took before uploading them to my editorial agencies.

And of course, no one I recognized attended. Some expected celebrities (Lisa Kudrow, Lisa Rinna, Jerry Hardin (Deep Throat, from "The X-Files"!), and Miss California 2009) did not show. So, there are a few people in here I need your help identifying!

But I had a good time at this gig. It was a smaller venue, there were less photographers, and everyone, from the actors, the photographers, and the publicists, were just really down to earth and really nice.

Sorry, the photos are watermarked, but I do work in this business, and I am a poor graduate student who only makes enough from editorial photography to buy lunch.

Shia Labeouf: ‘I wined and dined with Rihanna’

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Movie star Shia Labeouf had a one-date wonder with sexy Rihanna - but the couple failed to hit it off as potential lovers. The Transformers star reveals he became “infatuated” with the Umbrella hitmaker and was stunned to find out Rihanna was trying to get in touch with him. A mutual stylist friend eventually passed Rihanna’s details to LaBeouf while he was filming Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of The Crystal Skull in Hawaii.

He recalls, “(I was) filming a sword fight when I got the message. I said to myself, ‘Can this be my life?’” The actor tells Playboy magazine he texted the R&B pin-up and they set up a dinner date: “It never got beyond one date. The spark wasn’t there. We weren’t passionate about each other in that way, so we remain friends.”

LaBeouf admits the passion definitely was there on the Transformers movie sets - between him and co-star Megan Fox, who plays his girlfriend in the action blockbusters. And the actor still holds out hope he and Fox can become lovers in the future.

Lmao, Riri Denied him!
