La Toya had previously partnered with APLA when her record label decided to release her single, "Home," (which is currently on iTunes) and sent all proceeds to APLA, as well as when she participating in AIDS Walk Los Angeles earlier this month. La Toya is making it a personal goal to keep her brothers charitable legacy alive and growing.

While Millions of Milkshakes is known for its many delicious desserts, the "La Toya Jackson" milkshake consists of strawberries, raspberries, caramel, topped with whipped cream and a Cadbury flake! "I'm extremely excited to continue my involvement with APLA. I can't wait to get behind the counter and serve the community - and I can't wait to taste the La Toya shake again. It is very generous for Millions of Milkshakes to support our goal by donating proceeds from the store to such a great cause, I am very thankful to them!"

Millions of Milkshakes, located at 8910 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, California 90069, will donate proceeds from their signature shop for the month of October to support this amazing promotion.

Rider Strong Dons Emo Hair, Fights Aliens in Darkening Sky

Source: Shock Til You Drop

On the studio front this week, we've got The Fourth Kind, an alien abduction thriller, hitting theaters. On the indie front, a trailer has premiered today for a film which tells of an average Joe stumbling on an alien conspiracy. Nope, it's not another entry in The Arrival series; it's Darkening Sky, a film we alerted you to in August here, and we've got the trailer.

Here, Cabin Fever's Rider Strong plays Eric Rainer, a troubled grad student searching for his girlfriend who has mysteriously vanished. Desperate for answers, he meets a beautiful stranger (Danielle Keaton) who lost her boyfriend under similar circumstances. Together, they unravel the mystery, going deeper and deeper into a bizarre world of alien shape-shifters, implanted objects, organ harvesting, and humans seemingly possessed by malevolent forces. Eric's journey reaches a shocking conclusion with a revelation that will leave audiences reeling - revealing a truth more terrifying than anyone expected.

Ezra Buzzington, Charley Rossman, Danica Stewart, Suzanne Ford, Sally Berman, Time Winters, Bella Difiore and Maitland McConnell also star.

Scripted and directed by Victor Bornia and produced by Karly Young, Darkening Sky is scheduled for a 2010 release.

look who's getting drunk

We've learned the "24" star and members of the show's crew popped into The Spot in San Pedro, California last week after wrapping up a shoot nearby -- and they were ready to get their drink on.

According to an employee at the bar, Kiefer was throwing back scotch & Cokes and bought drinks for everybody in the joint -- roughly 30 people. The total damage: $500. No food ... all booze.

The drinks may have been stiff, but Kiefer wasn't -- we're told he tipped $200.

FYI: We're told Sutherland -- who has a few DUIs under his belt -- was responsible this time and used a designated driver when he left the bar.

Party of Five House For Sale!

abbie "supposed homewrecker" cornish

Abbie Cornish on the VOGUE Australia cover for December 2009.

Vogue Australia's editor Kirstie Clements has very firm views on the whole 'celebrity-cover' phenomenon - in that: 'Celebrity Cover - she's just not that into you.'

Very rarely, and only under special circumstances, will she put an actress on the cover of her magazine. Abbie is one very said special circumstance.

Paul Reubens: I Still Am Pee Wee Herman

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Most people know Paul Reubens for one role: Pee-wee Herman. In the latest issue of Details Magazine, he opens up about his constant obsession: "I am constantly hoping that, like, I'm still relevant at all." It makes sense. The 57-year-old actor is about to don the skinny suit again to perform as Pee-wee for the first time in 19 years -- starring in an elaborate live show. He just hopes people will come. "What I'm trying to prove now is that I still have it, I'm still around--I still am Pee-wee Herman, and Pee-wee Herman is still funny." he said.

Reubens made waves and sent fans into a tizzy when he announced he was bringing his brilliant Pee-Wee character back to the stage. The good vibes were short-lived, however, as the opening was pushed back from November to January. Fans quickly grew disappointed with not only the delay, but also the tedious ticket exchange process they had to go through for the rescheduled dates.

Reubens, always a man of the people, quickly issued a statement saying he would look into the matter, and that he'd like to meet with his fans who were affected so he could "grovel to them in person." Paul's Details Interview Below:

On channeling his character Pee-wee Herman again: "I always loved being that character... I could feel the love."

What he does on his time off: "I have no life outside of writing my show right now."

On his past headlines: "All this stuff that happened--the quote-unquote treatment I received--was not an inducement to come back to work. To wait for somebody to give me permission to have a career wasn't going to happen, you know? ... It's a drag to have tabloid baggage. It's weird to have your career be a footnote to that, especially when you love what you do. I'm not giving people that power anymore."

Does he still have his Emmys? "Are you kidding? I don't know where they are. They're in storage somewhere."

Tomstu is coming for you.....

Something tells me that Tom Sturridge, the “unknown” in Pirate Radio is about to be known by people everywhere. Not only does he put in a solid performance but he has a unique charm that makes him more than just attractive but intriguing. And although he seems to have jumped onto the movie screen, he hasn’t let his sudden success go to his head.

In our round-table interview with him, he was humble (to the point of self deprecating at times) and told us quite a bit about his sorted past and how it has lead him to his current success. He’s gone from being kicked out of schools, to living in Budapest, and now to being attacked by teenage girls in a theaters.

Chris Christie Rips Off Monty Python, Troupe Threatens Suit

Chris Christie, the Republican candidate for Governor of New Jersey in Tuesday's knife-edge gubernatorial election, has been called out as a copyright thief. The 47-year-old lawyer, who was controversially appointed by George W. Bush as a U.S. Attorney in 2001 on Karl Rove's recommendation after being a top Bush fund-raiser in the 2000 election, has created an election commercial that steals copyright-protected material from British comedy troupe Monty Python -- without permission or credit.

The official campaign advert -- titled "Deja Vu" -- attacks incumbent New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine by using scenes from a famous skit on the "Monty Python's Flying Circus" TV show that features Michael Palin. The ad is on Christie's official YouTube campaign site, and has already aired on national TV.

But neither Christie -- a lawyer for 22 years -- nor anyone in his campaign bothered to seek any permission for using the copyrighted material in his election spot.

Alerted to the theft of their copyright, members of Monty Python are most unhappy. Michael Palin, who appears in the clip pirated for the advert, is especially displeased that his likeness is being used by the Republican candidate without permission.

"I'm surprised that a former U.S. Attorney isn't aware of his copyright infringement when he uses our material without permission. He's clearly made a terrible mistake. It was the endorsement of Sarah Palin he was after -- not that of Michael Palin."

Monty Python's Terry Jones says that the troupe is strongly considering suing the Republican for his copyright infringement:

"It is totally outrageous that a former US Attorney knows so little about the law that he thinks he can rip off people. On the other hand -- another of Bush's legal appointees was Alberto Gonzales and he didn't seem to know much about the law either...," Jones said.


Having been exposed for their copyright theft and facing a possible lawsuit from Monty Python, the Christie campaign moved into damage control mode at high speed on Sunday night to try and limit the political fallout from their illicit action. Within an hour of the story appearing, the Christie commercial using pirated footage of a Monty Python skit was scrubbed from the campaign's website and their separate campaign site on YouTube. The only evidence left was the tell-tale wording on the clip's YouTube page "This video has been removed by the user"

Monty Python captured the video before it was removed. The Christie campaign should now be expecting the Spanish Inquisition...

You need a little Spears in your Life

James Brown was always called "the hardest working man in show business," but Britney Spears could certainly make a case for for that title (she'd be the hardest working woman, of course). She has a career-retrospective album coming out in a few weeks, and she's done dozens of dates on her high-energy Circus tour. Now she's taking it internationally, as she has a 14-date run through Australia starting on Friday. Yesterday, she found herself at the airport in Los Angeles to make her way out of the country, blend into her security detail and sip on a cup of soda from Taco Bell. It's a long flight to Perth (where Spears has a two night run in that city's Burswood Dome), but Spears has proven that she has the reserves to overcome her jet lag and to deliver a great show.

Taylor Swift: I Might Pass Out in SNL Pitch Meeting

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
No word yet on whether Taylor Swift will skewer Kanye West during her upcoming Saturday Night Live gig -- but Swift is psyched!

After beginning rehearsals for her Nov. 7 appearance -- she's host and musical guest -- the singer couldn’t contain her excitement.

"Starting the SNL process. I kinda feel like I might have a heart attack or pass out in the pitch meeting. I'm that excited," Swift, 19, Twittered Monday.

While the singer remains mum as to what type of skits she'll appear in, she has hinted that she'll heckle West, who brazenly interrupted her MTV VMA acceptance speech for Best Female Video and said Beyonce deserved the award instead.

"I've been thinking about skit ideas for a long time," said the singer, who was approached by show execs over the summer to appear. "There are definitely some hilarious things that have happened to me over the past couple of months that I think will be pretty substantial skits."

Swift says she hopes to work with funnyman Andy Samberg on a digital short for the episode.

"Of course, I've been such a fan for a long time, but I've gone back and re-watched everything over the past couple of months and digital shorts would be so much fun to do, because they've been done so well," she says. "Andy Samberg is hilarious."

Lady Gaga’s Arrival Leads to Photographer’s Death

When Lady Gaga finally enters the ACE Awards Gala held Tuesday at NYC’s Cipriani 42nd Street where she is being honored with the Stylemaker Award, she is running at least an hour behind schedule as dinner is well underway.

Donning a black lace-up headpiece that makes her face look like a lollipop, the singer doesn’t say a word to a line of print and television reporters awaiting her 9:03 p.m. arrival. (Thinking about it, she is wrapped so tightly that any mouth movement would lead to saliva buildup.) She strikes artsy slo-mo poses that include clawing, and struts inside poker-faced to all questions.

This is weird, I recall thinking, but when dealing with Lady Gaga, who knows.

“She’s not talking to anyone,” a handler says. “They tried to tackle her outside.”

I grab coconut and strawberry-infused Godiva candies, and step outside where a scene of mayhem is taking place. An African-American photographer lays on the sidewalk, his face ashen, with medical help surrounding him. A photographer I recognize tells me, “A.J. is not breathing.”

I later find my suspicions confirmed. According to Fame Pictures, “Gaga’s arrival made a photographer at the event pass out while standing on a ladder, causing him to fall to his death.”

What a horrifying way to go. May the dear photographer rest in peace.

FORKS, Wash. — A new restaurant set to open next year in Washington state will be called Volterra after a city in the popular Twilight vampire novels, which are set in the town of Forks.

Owners Annette and Tim Root told The Peninsula Daily News it will be a family restaurant, and they have applied for a liquor license.

Forks already has the Twilight Lounge that features concerts and other events for fans.

The Twilight books and movies have brought vampire tourism to the remote former logging town on Washington's Olympic Peninsula.

The Chamber of Commerce says thousands of visitors come asking questions, such as whether it's safe to go camping with the vampire problems in the area. are these visitors braindead?

Can't remember your own songs, Leona?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It was her first solo concert and Leona Lewis naturally wanted things to go without a hitch.

So just in case nerves got the better of her, the X Factor winner wrote key words on her hand to help her remember the lyrics for the songs she was to perform.

The first two - 'Belive [sic], holding' - were one-word prompts for verses to her new song Brave, whereas the rest were similar prompts for the tricky running order of verses to The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

Most importantly, however, the 24-year-old singer appeared to have shaken off the recent attack at a book signing as she put on a confident display at the homecoming gig.

For Lewis, who won The X Factor in 2006, the show was a return to the stage of the Hackney Empire where she first performed as a teenager.

She told the crowd: 'I just want to say thank you so much for coming to support me.

'The first time I ever performed here I was 13 so it seemed fitting for me to come back here.'

The Bleeding Love star appeared on stage in a black cape and hood with giant images of herself projected on a see-through screen at the front of the stage surrounded by half-naked dancers.

In Phantom Of The Opera-style scenes, the star stalked her way though plumes of stage smoke which covered the ground.

She changed into a purple mini-dress and leggings to sing her hit single Bleeding Love and told the cheering fans: 'Thank you so much for supporting that song. That song has allowed me to travel and do so much. Thank you.'

In October Lewis was left shaken after being punched in the head while signing copies of her new book at Waterstone's in central London.

But as she left the venue following the show, the star could barely wipe the smile off her face and looked absolutely delighted.

Kirstie Alley set to go unscripted for A&E

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Kirstie Alley is set to join the docuseries ranks; thesp is close to signing on to star in an unscripted show for A&E.

Cabler has picked up 10 half-hour episodes of the untitled series, which is set to run sometime next year. The program will follow Alley as she struggles with weight loss while handling life as a single mom to two teenagers in Hollywood.

FremantleMedia North America is producing.

"Kirstie is exactly the kind of star A&E is drawn to," said A&E nonfiction/alternative programming senior VP Robert Sharenow. "Her personal life has been playing out in the media for years, but this will be the first time she'll be opening up her home to reveal her real life for the cameras."

Alley has come close, however -- in the scripted world. The actress played a version of herself in Showtime's "Fat Actress," a partly improvised 2005 series that was loosely based on her struggles with weight and attempts at finding work in Hollywood.

This time out, the show comes as Alley prepares to launch a weight loss program. According to A&E, Alley is also "producing a feature film, patenting multiple inventions, working hard to raise two normal Hollywood teenagers, taking care of eight ringtail lemurs and, on top of everything, looking for love."

Untitled Alley project will be exec produced by George Moll ("Rock the Cradle") and Alley; Sharenow and Colleen Conway will also exec produce for A&E.

'Ponyo' Streets March 2nd - 'Special Edition' Includes Plush Figure

Disney’s Buena Vista Home Entertainment will release Hayao Miyazaki’s latest film Ponyo on DVD on March 2nd, 2010. Ponyo will be available in three iterations, a Standard Edition ($29.99), a 2-disc Special Edition that comes with a plush Ponyo figure ($34.99), and a Blu-ray ($39.99) version that will include all the extras from the Special Edition though according to it will not come with the plush figure.

Ponyo, which has earned over $15 million in North American theaters, is Miyazaki’s highest grossing film ever in the U.S. Given the track record of previous Miyazaki DVD releases it is almost a foregone conclusion that Ponyo will be the #1 anime DVD release of 2010 and it should stimulate sales of the Miyazaki backlist as well.

Stone Roses singer Ian Brown arrested for alleged assault of wife

Former Stone Roses singer Ian Brown was arrested yesterday for allegedly attacking his wife.

Police went to the couple's home at 8am after neighbours phoned 999 and reported a disturbance.

His Mexican model and actress wife Fabiola Quiroz, 37, told officers he had attacked her. Ian, 46, was arrested on suspicion of assault. He was later freed on bail until next month.

The couple, of West Kensington, West London, married in 1999 and have a son Emilio, nine. Scotland Yard confirmed: "A 46-year-old man was arrested at the address and taken to a police station."

Ian fronted the Stone Roses for 12 years until their 1996 split. Two years later he was jailed for four months for using threatening behaviour towards a British Airways stewardess and captain on a flight from Paris to Manchester.

The star banged on the cockpit door and threatened to chop off the stewardess's hands after she mistakenly offered him duty-free booze.

'This Is It' Made More Than Estimated, Ortega Says There'll Be 2-3 More Hours On The DVD

Michael Jackson's 'This Is It' made more than the original estimates this past weekend. Here are the final numbers:

Weekend Gross: $23,234,394 (estimate was $21.5 million)
Total Domestic Gross (as of 11/2/09): $36,898,026
International Gross (as of 11/2/09): $69,463,206

Worldwide Gross: $106,361,232 (estimate was $101 million)


A few days ago I got to speak with director Kenny Ortega for Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” as a reporter for our partner’s at Omelete. Since Ortega has spoken at great length about the project to other websites and media outlets, I tried to ask some news questions. The main thing I wanted to know was since they had shot around 100 hours of footage when documenting the rehearsals, how much additional footage could fans expect to see on the eventual DVD/Blu-ray. According to Ortega, we’re going to get between two and three hours of additional footage. He also told me it won’t be added into the movie like a director’s cut but will be part of the extras section. And for people wondering when it’ll be released, he says early next year.

Kanye 'working on new material'

Kanye West has reportedly started working on new material for his fifth studio album.

The 'Love Lockdown' rapper, who recently pulled out of a co-headlining 'Fame Kills' tour with Lady GaGa, is said to be eager to start on the follow-up to 2008's 808s & Heartbreak.

"Kanye's taking a bit of time away from the limelight. But he keeps telling me all these ideas he has for songs and fashion bits," recent collaborator A-Trak told the Daily Star.

"It's really amazing just how many ideas he has."

Meanwhile, protégé Mr Hudson recently revealed that West is "getting back into rapping" on his upcoming album.

West previously said that he wanted to take some time off following his outburst during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV VMAs in September.

Dr Drew saves the life of a high school football player

Dr. Drew Being Hailed A Hero

PASADENA -- "Dr. Drew", the famed radio and T.V. host, is being haled a hero after he came to the rescue of a student seriously injured during a high school football game Friday night.

Dr. Drew Pinsky, whose son, Doug, plays for Pasadena's Polytechnic School, was attending a football game against Chadwick School when one of the "Poly" players suffered a head injury, school officials said.

Player Jackson Allan came off the field after the injury and sat on the bench. He even exchanged some words with a teammate before his condition worsened and paramedics were called, officials said.

Dr. Drew said that Allan complained of a headache, collapsed, fell into a coma and stopped breathing. He administered CPR until paradmedics arrived.

Polytechnic's Head of School, Debbie Reed, released the following statement:

Jackson, accompanied by his father Les, was taken to the Harbor UCLA Medical Center, where he was met by his mother Rhonda. Jackson underwent successful surgery to relieve pressure on the brain from internal bleeding. Jackson's family members, as well as Poly players, coaches, parents, friends, and administrators, were at the hospital.

Chris Martin cheats on Gwyneth Paltrow


Gwyneth humiliated

Star Magazine is definitely not the most trustworthy source. Most of it is bullsh-t. But this is a story that cannot be ignored. The new issue of Star Magazine includes an explosive allegation – Chris Martin cheated on Gwyneth Paltrow with Kate Bosworth. Yes. Her again.

Ordinarily, considering it’s Star, the immediate reaction is to dismiss. But here’s why this report might be different. Because several magazines were investigating it a few days ago. I received calls about it on Saturday from other magazines. Chris and Kate were supposedly kissing in the open at a U2 show in Vegas two weeks ago in plain view. Which means that there was more than one witness. And each witness went to a tabloid. And each tabloid was scrambling to source it. And StarMagazine beat everyone else to the punch.Because their fact checkers are faster? Heh. Needless to say, reps for all three have issued denials. Because reps NEVER EVER lie. 

The new issue of Star Magazine hits stands tomorrow. etalk has a special preview tonight. So should we believe it?


There's precedent. I’ve been telling you about Kate Bosworth. My sources told me she allegedly pursued Jim Sturgess relentlessly during 21 without respecting the fact that he had a girlfriend. She did the same recently with Alexander Skarsgard and Evan Rachel Wood. She does not seem to care. If she wants it, she goes for it. Must be a food deficiency. And of course whatever “happy” makes her happy. 

As for Chris Martin… if you’ve been reading this site long enough, you already know about those old rumours. London was buzzing about something with a civilian nearly two years ago and more recently, Chris and Gwyneth hit a rough patch like this before that resulted in a positive resolution. But those were kept undercover. They were not blown out publicly with G plastered all over the papers, embarrassingly portrayed as the jilted, homely wife betrayed for a younger version of herself. 

How utterly…common.

And that’s the humiliation, isn’t it? Not only is her husband cheating, but now it’s become supermarket material. Gwyneth’s face alongside Jon & Kate plus 8. In her circle, this s the ultimate insult. 

And you hate her so much, you’ll probably say she deserves it. Yeah, Gwyneth deserves a lot of snark, she deserves your derision a lot of the time too. But she doesn’t deserve a prick ass husband and a skank crank hag who always hankers for what doesn’t belong to her.

Watch etalk tonight for more details on what Kate and Chris were doing and how flagrantly they behaved afterwards.

Warner denies Original Sugababes reunion.

Despite online rumours that the original members of Sugababes are set to re-form, the label allegedly involved claims not to know anything about it.

According to gossip website Holy Moly, Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena and Siobhan Doherty are currently in talks with producers and Warner Music about a comeback. However, a spokesperson said: "We haven't seen them here or heard anything about it. I don't think they've got the story right."

(It's probably worth pointing out that Holy Moly said the label is thought to be Warners. It could be that it wasn't and therefore obviously they wouldn't know anything... idk idk, we'll see)

Beyonce stirs political and religious debates ahead of concert

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Beyonce is set to perform for the first time, this Friday in North Africa at the Red Sea Resort of Port Ghalib. But the queen of Pop is being described as a sinner and of satanic possession by the extreme wings of both religious sects.

Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic movement and staunch opposition of the Mubarak government, said the government is trying to divert peoples’ attention from real business of politics by bringing a singer who always appears naked in her video clips to play in Egypt.

Member of Parliament, Hamdi Hassan from the Muslim Brotherhood said: “The government is trying to make people indulge in sin and licentiousness to cover up the other crimes it is committing against them."

Fiery Furnaces Call Radiohead 'Bogus'

When the Fiery Furnaces -- the sibling duo of Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger -- recorded 'I'm Going Away,' they adjusted their usual penchant for mad rhythms, inscrutable vocals and dizzily complex arrangements to create an album Matthew calls "more casual than our past records."

Collapse )

When told that Radiohead's Thom Yorke sent out a mass e-mail describing the group's tribute song to the UK's last veteran of World War I, 'Harry Patch (In Memory Of),' Friedberger adds the British rock star to his fraud alert list. "'Oh, please listen to our new song about Harry Patch,'" Friedberger says mockingly. "F--- you! You brand yourself by brazenly and arbitrarily associating yourself with things that you know people consider cool. That is bogus. That's a put-on. That's a branding technique and Radiohead have their brand that they're popular and intelligent. So they have a song about Harry Patch.

"How's the song?" Friedberger asks. "Is it 48 notes to the octave? What does it have to do with Harry Patch? Oh, my wife says I am being very rude. She doesn't like me insulting Radiohead. She's afraid they will send their lackeys through the computer to sabotage us. But they needn't worry -- we are a band that sabotages ourselves."

'I'm Going Away' is available now.

This stupid bitch is probably just jealous of RH's popularity and talent. OR he was trying to namedrop them to spread word about whatever they're releasing. OR BOTH.
And the Harry Patch song was a tribute AND for charity. They used Harry Patch's words for lyrics. So he should stfu.

Tyra Banks: Diets "Are a Bunch of Bologna"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Nearly two years after she was scrutinized for her weight and told critics to kiss her "fat ass," Tyra Banks is revealing how she lost nearly 30 pounds.

It wasn't because of a diet.

"I do not believe in diets. I have been on diets in the past, and they are a bunch of bologna," she says on The Tyra Show, airing Wednesday. "This is a lifestyle change. It's not about being skinny. It's about getting in the best shape that you can be."

The former supermodel, 35, says she has been working with nutritionist Heather Bauer, who has helped her re-evaluate her eating habits by keeping a food diary. (Banks also shares sample lunch and dinner menus, healthy fast food options and carbs to cut out.)

"I switched up my unhealthy eating habits for healthier eating habits, and I haven't had a tummy attack since December '08," she says.

Banks admits she still indulges -- "some BBQ ribs and some ice cream and some Haagen Daaz" are her faves -- but "just not every second."

The trick?

"It's about working with what you've got, and knowing, and learning what's right for your body," she says.

The 5' 9" model -- who reveals she has maintained her "34DD boobies" and her "round booty" -- was careful to stress that she doesn't want to lose her curves.

"I feel good about my curves and my imperfections -- my booty, my boobs, my thighs -- I embrace it all," she says. "Now I really can say ... kiss my fit -- and still fat -- ass."

Kate Hudson: "All Men Want Is Sex and a Sandwich"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
When it comes to men, Kate Hudson's got it all figured out.

In a new interview with Elle UK, the actress — who's been dating New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez for nearly six months — breaks it down.

"I love boys," says the star, whose pre-Rodriguez loves include Owen Wilson, Dax Shepard, Lance Armstong and ex-husband Chris Robinson.

But boys, she quips, are "so easy to figure out." Paraphrasing celebrity shrink Dr. Laura Schlesinger, she says, "What did Dr. Laura say? Something like, 'All men want is sex and for you to make them a sandwich.' I thought that was really funny -- and not entirely untrue."

She elaborates: "If you had a bubble above their head, they'd be thinking about game scores, masturbation, and food."

The 30 year-old (and mom to son Ryder, 3) -- who lost 20 pounds to play a terminally ill woman for her upcoming film Earthbound -- also admits her fondness for alcohol: "I love my glass of wine. I love tequila. To be in New York for two weeks and not have one beverage! I'm not sure I've ever done that."

These days, she says her weight is "pretty solid . . . I'm not, like, 110 pounds. But I'm probably heading towards that."

What about Botox? The frequent cover model hasn't been injected yet, but thinks that it's "great! I'm glad it's there for when it's time."

The December issue of Elle UK arrives on newsstands Wednesday.

Jeremy Piven: I Grew Man Boobs From Excessive Soy Milk

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Too much daily soy milk, on the other hand, leads to man boobs.

So says nutritionally-challenged Jeremy Piven.

The Entourage actor has sworn off the healthful dairy milk substitute -- he chugged 12 cups a day -- because of an unflattering side effect.

"I was the guy that dabbled in soy milk, but now I've found out soy milk has enough estrogen for me to grow breasts," the Emmy winner explained. "I had to put the soy milk down. It was a very confusing time."

And it's not his first bizarre food-related complaint.

Earlier this year, he bowed out of a Broadway play crying mercury poisoning. The cause? He says he ate sushi twice a day for 20 years.

Ben Affleck to direct Chris Pine in 'The Blade Itself'

It’s been over a year since we heard that Ben Affleck and his Gone Baby Gone writing/producing partner, Sean Bailey, nabbed the rights to bring the novel The Blade Itself to the big screen. Contrary to popular belief, just because news about the film isn’t flooding the Internet, doesn’t mean development has come to a halt. In fact, we’ve learned that progress has been made on the hush hush.

According to Pajiba, Star Trek’s Chris Pine signed on to star in the film in May, but as of six weeks ago, his status changed from starring to attached. Pine is scheduled to meet with the film’s top directorial candidate before sealing the deal. As for the director, Pajiba says the individual set to rendezvous with Pine is not Affleck.

If Pine does sign on to star, the role will be a great departure from Star Trek’s James T. Kirk. The Blade Itself is based on the Marcus Sakey novel about a pair of young friends, Danny and Evan, who commit a slew of petty crimes together until something goes horribly wrong. Years later, we meet the boys again who have grown to lead completely different lives. Danny has a family and a successful career but Evan is an ex-con with a vengeance. Danny is forced to do whatever it takes to protect the ones he loves from his dark past.

Don’t think Pine can hack it in a gritty crime film? Check out Bottle Shock. It’s as far from a crime film as you can get, but it does show the guy is versatile. He’ll be putting that resourcefulness to good use in the coming years. Since the release of Star Trek, Chris has signed on to a handful of projects. There’s The Art of Taking Money, Unstoppable and, most recently, buzz about Pine becoming the new Jack Ryan. Maybe if all goes well with The Blade Itself, Affleck will give him some tips on portraying iconic CIA agent.

Emmy Rossum honored at the Savannah Film Festival

Standing in a spotlight, in front of a lush red velvet curtain at the Trustees Theater, actress Emmy Rossum looked very Hollywood as she accepted the "Young Hollywood Award."

The award was presented as part of the Savannah Film Festival on Monday night.

President of Savannah College of Art and Design Paula Wallace touted Rossum's range before presenting her with the award.

"In one breath she takes on a daring role in the art house picture 'Dare,'" Wallace said. "Then she plays a knife-throwing ninja warrior goddess in 'Dragonball Evolution.'"

After watching a video clip of several career highlights, Rossum drew laughs from the audience by saying, "I learned a lot about myself (from that video). I made out with a lot of really good-looking people. I love my job."

DJ Hero has competition

Even though DJ Hero dropped last week, there’s already a competitor for it dropping next year. Here’s an inside look into this upcoming DJ simulator.

I would say that this looks more legit than DJ Hero, simply because Numark designed the controller. Ultimately though, the real joy of turntablism is digging for rare records and creating your own mix. These video games fail to capture that.

Mariah & Rihanna refused to speak to each other on Halloween.

Mariah Carey and Rihanna refused to talk or be photographed together at a Halloween bash. The dueling divas worked hard to upstage each other at Carey's party at M2 Ultralounge. A source said Rihanna, dressed as a tiger with a tail so long a security guard had to hold it up, partied with three female friends and rapper Ne-Yo in a booth and wouldn't cross the dance floor to pay her respects. Meanwhile Carey, in a corset and giant angel wings, stayed with hubby Nick Cannon in her VIP area. A spy said, "It was Mariah's party, but Rihanna didn't want to be seen with her. And Mariah was not going over to greet Rihanna. Mariah needed six guards to clear a path to the bathroom so her wings wouldn't be dislodged." Carey's rep said, "There were 1,000 people there and, of course, she needed security. She heard a rumor that Rihanna was there but she never saw her. She loves Rihanna and of course would have said hello." Rihanna's rep had no comment.

Vehem interviews Sam Bradley

A much anticipated self-titled EP was released on Sam Bradley’s 23rd proper birthday. He hails from London England, but currently calls Vancouver (Canada) headquarters. This overnight Americana soulful folk singer is crawling out of the Twilight shadows and proving himself as an artist one show at a time. He was on tour this summer without even an EP in hand or to sell! Having met Sam in person during an underground twitter-spread concert, I can attest that he puts on a good show with his band “the Men”.

If you had to describe yourself, not as an artist, but as a person, what would you say?

Sam Bradley: I would say that I am unaware of the talent… I am not allowed to talk about (being an artist) for this answer. Oh (then)… I’m ugly.

Obviously, the guy doesn’t know that he has us all smitten by his British accent and tousled rock star hair. He’d win anyone at “hello.”

The H1N1 virus has afflicted another celebrity victim.

Shawn Stockman of the R&B group Boyz II Men has been diagnosed with the illness, fellow group members Wanya Morris and Nathan Morris told CNN.

The pair said Stockman was unable to accompany them to Atlanta on Tuesday for a scheduled performance at the 2009 Soul Train Awards.

"We tour eight months out of the year, and we are always traveling around,"
Nathan Morris said. "It's hectic for us always being in airplanes and airports. He got sick, and it hit him pretty hard."

The Grammy-winning and platinum-selling group, known for their No. 1 singles "End of the Road" and "I'll Make Love to You," has a new album out in stores in November called "Love." Wanya and Nathan Morris still planned to perform at the awards show as a duo, according to the group's manager.

"We go all over the world really, so I am surprised it hasn't happened earlier, to be honest," Nathan Morris said. "I talked to [Stockman] today, and he is doing much better."

Stockman joins a growing list of stars who have fallen prey to the swine flu, including the Backstreet Boys' Brian Littrell and "Harry Potter" star Rupert Grint.

PTC Tries to Stop 'Gossip Girl' Threesome, Remain Complete MORONS While Doing So

TheWrap has obtained a letter from The Parents Television Council criticizing CW affiliates who plan to air a Nov. 9 episode of Gossip Girl featuring a threesome. TheWrap says the letter claims the stations will be “complicit in establishing a precedent and expectation that teenagers should engage in behaviors heretofore associated primarily with adult films.” The author of the letter, PTC chief Tim Winter, also claims that affiliates have the right to preempt the programming. The CW has no comment.

Kate Winslet Wins $40,000 in Libel Suit

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Academy Award winner Kate Winslet said Tuesday she was "delighted" to win a payout of about $40,000 from a British newspaper that said she lied about her exercise regime.

"I strongly believe that women should be encouraged to accept themselves as they are, so to suggest that I was lying was an unacceptable accusation of hypocrisy," the 33-year-old mother of two said in a statement. In January, Winslet told reporters she was going "easy" on herself and not exercising at all during the hectic awards season.

She has frequently stated women should be proud to accept how they look, so when the Daily Mail ran the report, which her lawyers claimed was "misleading the public," she had to act.

In the High Court in London Tuesday, the paper accepted the allegation made in the Jan. 30 story – headlined "Should Kate Winslet win an Oscar for the World's most irritating actress?" – was false and has agreed to publish an apology and pay not only damages but also her legal costs. The story came just three weeks before her Best Actress win for The Reader.

"I am delighted that the Mail have apologized for making false allegations about me," Winslet said in the statement. "I was particularly upset to be accused of lying about my exercise regime, and felt that I had a responsibility to request an apology in order to demonstrate my commitment to the views that I have always expressed about body issues, including diet and exercise."

But these qualities alone would not have made Lou Jing the most famous television talent show contestant in China and the subject of national debate in the world's most populous country. The reason they are talking about Lou is because she is black.

Her appearances – she became one of five finalists – have provoked a storm of abuse on the internet, a rare debate on racism in the media, and a bout of self-examination in a country where skin colour is a notoriously sensitive subject.

Tobey Mcguire talks about 'Brothers'

Tobey Maguire told The LA Times that the intensity of working on his latest movie, the family drama Brothers, had such an effect that he "lost a lot of joy" while working on it.

"I wasn't even aware of it. I don't mean it to sound goofy or artsy or something, but two days before we wrapped, I started telling some jokes and laughing, whatever, and it was like a release for me. I hadn't done that in, like, two months."

Brothers follows a military wife (Natalie Portman) who is told that her husband (Maguire) has died in Afghanistan. Grieving, she finds solace with her husband's brother (Jake Gyllenhaal) until her husband suddenly arrives home. The role is a real change of pace for the Spider-Man actor, who was pleased to shed some light on the real problems that soldiers face.

"In the area of our veterans coming home with traumas or PTSD or whatever, it's one of those issues that isn't pretty to look at. We ask these people to fight for us and risk their lives, and certainly potentially alter their outlook of the world or how they react to things. I think it would be nice for us as a society to have some more awareness of what they go through, and to take on some more responsibility for the results of our asking them to go over there."

Maguire lost 20 pounds to play the Marine captain who survives captivity in Afghanistan and says that playing the role had a profound effect on him.

Brothers was based on the Danish movie Brødre and was directed by Jim Sheridan. Brothers opens December 4.

Brad to Angelina: Eat Something!

Angelina Jolie is known for throwing herself into her roles, whether it’s playing a grief-stricken mom in Changeling or a sociopath in Girl, Interrupted. But now, her real-life role as a U.N. ambassador is affecting the mom-of-six so profoundly that friends are concerned she’s endangering her health.

Collapse )Angelina, who has visited Iraq, Kenya and Ethiopia over the past few months, is using her volunteer work for the U.N. as an excuse for keeping the weight off. “She tells Brad that she can relate more to the refugees looking the way she does now,” the insider says. “She feels more of a connection to the people she’s trying to help but Brad told her the purpose of her volunteer work is to help those who are suffering, not look like them!”

James Haven said that Angelina’s life changed after she visited Ethiopia (she adopted Zahara from the country in 2005). “Whenever she’s there, there’s often no food for her and she goes without.”
But Angelina’s weight loss began earlier this year when she reportedly did a detox diet to lose weight for her role in Salt.

“She lost some weight just from being busy and running around a lot,’’ says a source. “She finished filming Salt, where she was busy working long hours every day and exercising to stay fit for the role and now between the kids and her volunteer work for the U.N. refugee agency, she barely has a minute to eat.”
And she doesn’t like getting picked on by Brad for it. “Brad was just trying to tell Angelina that she’s looking too thin without hurting her feelings, but she retaliated and told him the last thing she needed was him judging her,” the insider says. “He’s been trying to get her to eat, but she won’t listen.”

The pal says that Brad’s biggest concern now is that Angelina will fall ill while traveling the world with their children. “He’s not worried about her appearance but rather her wellbeing and the health of their kids.”

Michael Lohan: "[Lindsay] looks 100 years old"

"She's a beautiful girl but she looks 100 years old."

Michael Lohan, perhaps in an effort to score a few extra votes in our parent poll, shared this opinion with Page Six about his 23-year-old daughter, Lindsay Lohan.

Such a remark is apparently the latest attempt by dear old dad to draw more attention to himself his girl's trail of troubles, telling the gossip rag: "I am going to go to court to get a legal conservatorship to get Lindsay into rehab and finally get her off all the prescription meds. [Wife] Dina is going to sit down with me and the lawyers and make things right for Lindsay."

Of course, adding insult to injury like this is always a good start.


First Look: James Franco on General Hospital!

You guys, we've been waiting on pins and needles for this moment, and now we have it: the first images of James Franco in his much talked-about performance on General Hospital.

Still no word on who James will be playing (beyond that it has something to do with Jason), but feel free to speculate away based on the image.

And don't forget: James's first air date is Friday, November 20th!

What do you think of this first shot? What's this character all about? What's with the all-black ensemble? Does that have something to do with Jason too? Start speculating!

ETA: since questions about why the hell he's doing this keep coming and i'm tired of it, let me clear this up:
“It was actually Franco who approached television exec Jill Farren Phelps about working on the show,” the source revealed. “He was interested in exploring all aspects of his craft and wanted to work on a soap opera because of its intense shooting schedule. (source)

“It’s awesome here,” Cuomo [said] during the recent taping (the show will air next year on Nick Jr.). “I love giant open rooms with tall ceilings. But here they have all this foam scenery and interestingly painted backdrops. It’s a cool fantasy land I’d like to inhabit.”

After the jump [is] behind-the-scenes footage of the band taping their performance:

Weezer + Kenny G? + Chamillionaire? + Sarah Bareilles?

Weezer's been all about the collaborations as of late with the release of their latest album, Raditude, but the band's AOL Spinner session takes things to a whole new level.

In the first of three videos we've got for your rockin' pleasure, soprano sax of Kenny G steps in for a cameo player role in "I'm Your Daddy". It's hard to tell who's spoofing who at this point, but Rivers seems batshit excited about it. In the second clip, Chamillionaire replaces the soon-to-be-incarcerated Lil' Wayne for "I Can't Stop Partying," while Leighton Meester gives way to Sarah Bareilles on "If You're Wondering" - which is a blessing, considering that Leighton couldn't sing her way out of a shitty fake-reality show.

Q&A: Michael Franti "Say Hey"

Spearhead's Michael Franti On His Hit, Appendix, & Bare Feet

"I wanted this to be a record that would shake people's cynicism and say this world is still worth fighting for, there are still things in the world we should care about," Spearhead's Michael Franti says of the inspiration behind "Say Hey (I Love You)," a surprise first hit for the 15-year-old band. "But I knew in making a message like that it had to be fun. It had to be something you could dance to."

Whether it was because the song was fun and danceable or not, the jubilant tune definitely touched music fans in a big way. The track, a single from the album "All Rebel Rockers," rose into the top 40 of five different Billboard charts including a No. 6 peak on the Adult Pop Songs tally, a first for Spearhead. Franti recently stopped by the studios for a video Q&A in which he talked about his reaction to the song's success ("I still can't believe it!"), how it coincided with a ruptured appendix, the band's plans to rerecord some of their vast catalog as a "starter kit" for fans new and old, and why he's been barefoot for nine years. No, really. Barefoot. For nine years.

Here We Go...

Dallas Cowboy cheerleader Whitney Isleib is in the midst of Halloween drama after posting FB pics of her in blackface. She says she was dressed as Lil Wayne.

Some folks say it was in poor taste-esp. as she is in a public position as a Cowboy cheerleader (I watch that reality show of the chicks trying to make the team and the Cowboys Cheerleader organization is extra strict). Others say it was just all in fun and they don’t see a problem with it.
