Rob Marshall’s “Nine” Love Fest Begins

Rob Marshall’s “Nine” is finally making the rounds of early screenings, really early, and getting lots of love.

Over the weekend it was apparently shown to visiting press junketeers, members of the Directors Guild, the Hollywood Foreign Press, and the British Academy. At the DGA, Nora Ephron hosted the screening, then interviewed director Rob Marshall afterward.

It’s too early for reviews — opening day isn’t until mid December and there’s still not a final print. But there’s a lot of buzz for the actors, starting with Daniel Day Lewis, Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard.

Not to say the many other famous women don’t score; they do. Each of them — Fergie, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren — have smaller roles (as well as a show-stopping number). Here’s the trailer

Kidman, however, is getting a lot of kudos for her performance of the show’s hit, “Unusual Way.” Geffen Records may wind up putting it out as a single. You may recall that Nicole had a hit record a few years back on a duet with Robbie Williams of “Something Stupid.”

A couple of the numbers are already floating around on YouTube as fans seem to be making their own videos in anticipation of the real thing: Fergie’s “Be Italian” is sensational as one of the songs designed to make people leave the theater humming. And Kate Hudson’s “Cinema Italiano,” written for the movie, looks like a knockout in this new trailer

I did a hear a funny story from the international press junket. Sophia Loren, who is so magnificent and legendary, had to get used to Daniel Day Lewis staying in character all the time. Someone asked her about it, though, after the American actresses all sort of nodded and said it had been fine for them. Loren, though, laughed when she was asked: “It was very strange!” she exclaimed, shaking her head.

As for Oscars and all that jazz: it does seem as though Marion C will wind up in the lead actress category, alongside Meryl Streep, Gabby Sidibe, Carey Mulligan, and Helen Mirren, maybe. Penelope goes into Supporting, with Patricia Clarkson, Mo’Nique, Julianne Moore, and maybe Diane Kruger or Mariah Carey. The various races have begun! It’s a good thing January is such a long month.

I'd Rather Keeley Hazell Go Naked Than Wear Fur

First of all, women who pose naked for PETA never actually show the goods, and second, it's been a hell of a long time since we've seen any Keeley Hazell nude pictures, so the fact that Keeley Hazell got naked for PETA, and actually didn't cover up the fun bits is pretty awesome. And really, whatever your political stance on the fur trade, isn't it worth not wearing fur if it means women like Keeley Hazell will get naked for it?

THIRTEEN from House Is Happy There's No Happy Ending in FIX



Olivia Wilde might be most known for her portrayal of Dr. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley on House -- but don't expect her to play doctor forever. The actress is filling out her resume with comedies (Year One), scifi (Tron Legacy), and indie dramas like Fix, which was written and directed by her co-star -- and real-life husband --Tao Ruspoli. Wilde talks about what she finds appealing in dark storylines, how her recent experiences have made her want to get behind the camera, and compares making no-budget films with big-budget ones.

Australia's Next Top Model's Cassi Van Den Dungen rejected New York deal over weight issues

Cassi Van Den Dungen happy with her weight
Feared dropping from size six to size four

THE price teenager Cassi Van Den Dungen would have had to pay to model on the world stage was dropping from a skinny size six to a skeletal size four.

The Australia's Next Top Model runner-up was recently criticised for turning down an offer to work with a leading New York model agency.

But the already-skinny Sunbury model feared she would be pushed to lose weight.

"I know the international market would want me to lose more weight," Van Den Dungen said. Collapse )

Also on the topic of weight/skinniness…

Julia Frakes, teenage fashion blogger & style icon, Paper magazine columnist, etc

She’s been featured in numerous magazines & websites such as TeenVogue. How is it that she’s in the spotlight yet nobody in the media has said anything about how extremely thin she is? Why is she making news only because of her style & knowledge of fashion yet not because of her astonishingly low weight? She does have a fair amount of exposure…google her if you're not familiar.

SEVENTEEN Mag features our fave almost-17 Yr Old: Miley Cyrus is SEVENTEEN Stylin’

Miley Cyrus has stars in her eyes in this new outtake from the December 09/January 2010 of Seventeen magazine.

The 16-year-old spilled to the mag about fashion, Tybee Island and costar Liam Hemsworth. Check it:


On picking trends for her fashion line, Miley Cyrus & Max Azria: “We look into fashion designs very much in advance. We started the plaid shirts and the cheetah pants before people started seeing it [on runways]. When you first look at it as a designer, you think Okay, this is going to be a little crazy. But you don’t know what’s going to be in in a year like Max [Azria] does. Max looks at other designers, and you know it’s very advanced. He’s got the inside scoop.”
On her love for touring: “With a tour, you’re doing the exact same thing every day for like a year. So sometimes that can be kind of hard, because you’re like, I want to do something new and exciting. So you’ve got to make it your job as the artist — especially since we do some cities twice — to make it something new and fun every night. So we’ll do games and stuff on the stage: We have this one stupid dance move that we do that we keep tally of and see who in the show can do it the most in that night, and we keep it fun and do silly things, but still also put on a great show.”
On the possibility of leaving Los Angeles behind: “I think one day I’ll live on Tybee [Island, where The Last Song was filmed]. That’s where I see myself 10 years from now. I could see myself maybe wanting to just chill out and be somewhere like that. And that’s where I feel at home, where I feel like my heart is.”
On her The Last Song costar Liam: “So I heard a rumor that he didn’t really want the role, and so when he came in to audition for the role, I’m thinking Here’s this guy, he’s amazingly good-looking, super-confident, and he doesn’t realize how blessed he is to be in this room, because I know how blessed I am. This is such a big opportunity for both of us.”

Ryan McPartlin is putty in Gina Gershon's hands

Ask any fan of NBC's "Chuck" to say the first thing that comes to mind when they hear Ryan McPartlin and they'll say, "Awesome."

The Glen Ellyn native stars as part-time spy Chuck Bartowski's brother-in-law, Devon, whom Chuck calls Capt. Awesome.

McPartlin's not quite as awesome in "Ann Rule's Everything She Ever Wanted," a two-part mini-series airing at 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on Lifetime Movie Network. He plays a wealthy young Southerner who falls in love with what can only be called a cougar-monster.
"This poor guy," McPartlin told me earlier this week about his character, Tom Allanson. "I don't want to give too much away, but wow, he goes through a lot."

Tom meets and falls for Pat, a demented social-climber played with delicious nastiness by Gina Gershon. Gershon's take on the role is bound to make her even more of a gay icon. She makes the campy, bound for cult status film. And she looks fantastic doing it, which should have straight men fantasizing, as if they aren't already. But McPartlin said working with the actress is "like hanging out with one of the guys."
"Dude, she's great. We had the best time," he said. "We could talk about everything and anything. It was so cool."

I don't understand. I just don't... even get it. I went and thought it was not as good as she used to be, but to say it "was shit" is a little extreme.

Twihard Mom Seeks Signed Panties from Taylor Lautner

Taylor Lautner Pictures, Images and Photos

On last night's 'The Jay Leno Show,' 'New Moon' actor Taylor Lautner told Leno his most memorable fan encounter story, which involved a 40-something mother looking to have her panties signed with her embarrassed teenage daughter in tow. Classy! We're sure this story doesn't reflect on the Twihard mom's parenting skills in the least.

'We're at a signing, an autograph signing ... and there was a mother who was in her mid-40s and a little teenage daughter," the 17-year-old Lautner told Leno. "The mother skips on up ... and she goes, 'Excuse me, Taylor ... I'm wearing the Team Taylor panties right now. Is there any way I can take them off for you and just have you sign them quick?' And the daughter goes, 'Mom, come on!'"

"Our Twilight moms are passionate," Lautner said by way of explanation. Fortunately, according to Lautner, security was able to step in and put an end to the bizarre request.

Helena Bonham Carter Says Son Not Impressed With Acting

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Portraying children’s author Enid Blyton in the new BBC biopic Enid was a labor of love for Helena Bonham Carter, who shot the film in 15 days on a shoestring budget. Her enthusiasm for the project was not matched by her 6-year-old son Billy Ray, however! Helena tells the UK’s Telegraph,

“[He] threw my script to the opposite end of the room just before I started filming, saying, ‘I like you but I don’t like what you do ‘cos it takes such a very long time.’”

Although she, herself, was not a big fan of Enid’s writing growing up she is quick to point out that she is reading it to Billy now “whether he likes it or not.” She adds,

“And he does like it. All the things people criticize her for, such as repetitive language, he loves it. It makes it really easy to read.”

Helena is also mom to Nell, 23 months, with partner Tim Burton.

TV Ratings: Modern Family, Cougar Town rebound , Glee tops with young adults and teens




CBS won the night both with adults 18-49 and overall viewers on the backs of Criminal Minds and CSI: NY.

FOX edged out ABC for second with adults 18-49 and FOX won the night outright with adults 18-34 by a wide margin with its lineup of So You Think You Can Dance and Glee. Glee was the night’s highest-rated program of the night with adults 18-34 and teens.

Modern Family and Cougar Town were both up from the ratings-notched November 4th when Cougar Town hit a series low with adults 18-49 (CMA Awards aired last week) and were the night’s most-watched comedies.

Rihanna inspired by "baddest badass" Kate Moss

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Rihanna says Kate Moss inspired her to design a clothes range.

The singer’s interest in fashion has led her to launch her own collection. Rihanna is a huge fan of British supermodel Kate’s designs for high street chain Topshop and is keen to create a line which is just as successful.

“I’ve started work on the collection, we are getting it together. It is in the beginning stages. Fashion is something I have always loved,” Rihanna told Grazia magazine.

“I love Kate Moss. She’s just hands-down one of the baddest badasses in the land. Nobody can take her down. I really admire Kate because every photo shoot she does is different. Every time you see her there is a different energy that she puts out in whatever outfit she is wearing. I think she is amazing.”

Rihanna is thrilled to have been given the opportunity to design clothes because it gives her an avenue to express herself away from her music career.

She explained: “I am a very creative person, so it is another way for me to get my creativity out.”

The 21-year-old beauty has been taking advice from Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini after being unveiled as the face of the Italian fashion house’s accessories last year. Rihanna is hoping to work with a range of fashion experts for the new line. “I love designing. Frida has been helping me develop as a designer. I will probably work with some cool designers who I think have a similar sense of style and design to me.”

Askars spills some dirt on season 3 of "True Blood"

Relax ladies, Alexander Skarsgard is still on the market. At Wednesday night's GQ Men of the Year party at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood, the True Blood star told RadarOnline.com exclusively that he and Kate Bosworth are just friends.

"I'm not dating anyone, those are just rumors," he laughed. When asked if there were any special women in his life, the hunky actor replied "my mom and my sister."

Skarsgard was one of the night's special guests; he was honored as one of the "Men Who Saved HBO".

For the record, Kate also attended Wednesday night's party but avoided the red carpet, sneaking quietly into the hotel instead.


Skarsgard, 33, who plays brooding vampire Eric Northman on the HBO hit series True Blood, will begin shooting season three along with the rest of the cast later this month. The actor told RadarOnline.com that fans can expect a lot more from Eric this time around.

"There's a lot of nudity," he said. "As far as Eric goes, there's going to be a lot violence and a lot of sex -- with women and men! So it should be interesting."

At 6-foot-four, Alexander's model good looks are just as striking in person as they are on the small screen. Last season, he had to get up close and personal with True Blood co-star Anna Paquin -- who in real life is engaged to co-star Stephen Moyer. But Skarsgard says there's no tension on set.



"No. I mean, I can't wait to get back to my L.A. family," he said referring to the True Blood cast. "I love Stephen, we're friends and I love Anna. They're great together. I actually think it makes things easier that way."



So there were absolutely no sparks flying between Skarsgard and Paquin during last season's steamy love scenes?

Friends: Nicole Richie needed the rest

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Simple Life star recently gave birth to son Sparrow in September with Joel Madden, who already have 22 month-year-old daughter Harlow.

Richie began feeling achy early on November 9.

“Nicole began feeling sick, and has pretty much been in bed,” a source said. “She didn’t want to make a big deal out of it, but she was exhausted and couldn’t take care of Harlow and Sparrow the way she normally does. Nicole spent most days in bed, and the kids were brought in to her, since she was feeling so icky.”

Friends made sure that Richie was doing okay. “Joel was out of the town the entire first week she was sick and he didn’t realize how serious it was. Friends were calling and stopping by to check in on her while Joel was away.

Joel quickly realized it was much more serious. “When he got back he was worried and realized she didn’t have [just] a little flu bug.”

“Nicole has been working very hard since giving birth to Sparrow in September,” the source added. “She really is a stay-at-home mom with the kids all day long and then she goes to work on her House of Harlow line.

But with kids and work, she was forgetting to rest. “She puts the kids to bed and then has a little quiet time to herself around 9pm. All the work and nonstop going out has been a lot for her right after giving birth.”

“She’s doing better and getting great care,” the friend says of Richie’s hospital visit. “It’s time for a speedy recovery.”

The most beautiful & talented HBIC

Everybody loves Dolly Parton, and there was certainly plenty of love in the room during the performances that resulted in Live From London, a two-disc CD/DVD set recorded at the 02 Arena. Backstage interviews and other action are captured on the DVD, but the real magic comes from Parton's music and her connection to the audience.

"It was so open and the lighting was so great and the audience looked so good and ... we had a wonderful stage, so it was one of those things where everything just feels right, and you just know it and you just go with it," Parton said during a recent interview with CMT Insider's Katie Cook. "The crowds were so responsive, and we just loved it."

The discs feature hits such as "Jolene" and "Two Doors Down," along with newer material, including "Backwoods Barbie" and "Only Dreamin'." In the interview, Parton talks about the work involved in planning a concert tour and her family's holiday tradition.

In addition to such faces as Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Pattinson, People magazine recently named Idols Kris Allen and Adam Lambert two of the hottest guys to hit the music industry this year. And when it came down to explaining what makes them so sexy, they joked that it has a lot to do with confidence and hair.

"It's weird to me because I don't think of myself in that way," Lambert told MTV News on the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood red carpet Wednesday. "So when I hear stuff like that, it's very flattering and I just have to give thanks, I guess." Lambert was being honored at the event as Glam God of the Year.

The American Idol runner-up, however, had no problem explaining why his pal and fellow Idol, Allen, who Us named Victor of the Year at the event, has everyone labeling him a hottie. "He's confident in his own skin as well," he said, before Allen met up with him on the carpet and the two shared some good-natured laughs.

"It's the hair, man," Allen said about what makes Lambert so sexy, after shrugging off Lambert's compliments. "I think it's the hair, that's what all the ladies like, the hair." "I think the ladies like other things about Kris," Lambert teased. "The hair is good. But there's more to it than that, from what I've gathered."

6(66) Reasons 'Twilight' Is Doomed



Hear me, members of the coven. A new moon is rising on these November nights, a new day will dawn across the land -- and the “Twilight Saga” is doomed.

Yes, we’ve seen the frenzy “Twilight” causes. We know that the conventional wisdom is that “New Moon” will outperform the first “Twilight” film -- which made almost $384 million worldwide and $168 million on DVD. But there’s more going on than meets the eye.
Heed our warning now. In the long term, the "Twilight” saga has a stake through its heart. Here are 6 (66) reasons why …

I'm sorry to contribute to the onslaught here, but I've been avoiding all Twilight-related press over the past few weeks (including this community) and came out of hibernation after seeing this article, because its funny and oh-so-true.

We need to all boycott this movie so that it makes zilch. Please?

Adam Lambert Doesn't Keep Up on His Britney News; Says Lady Gaga Insisted "More! Crazier!"



Idolator caught up with Adam Lambert and Kris Allen at the Us Weekly Hot in Hollywood party at Voyeur nightclub last night. (The magazine honored both guys in its “Stars of the Year” coverage - Adam was named “Glam God of the Year” and Kris “Victor of the Year.”) Check out our heart-to-heart with the delicious little space alien known as @adamlambert:

Adam Lambert: I love your hair!

Becky Bain: I love your hair! I can already tell we’re kindred spirits. So, your album is on heavy rotation in the office.

AL: Aww. Thank you! The streaming thing? Awesome.

BB: I’m especially digging “Fever,” the track Lady Gaga wrote and gave to you.
AL: I am too! It was awesome.

BB: What did you learn about recording or songwriting in general from working with Gaga?
AL: You know it’s really just an energy thing. Doing all these songs, different producers, different writers, it’s always a different vibe in the world, and Gaga is so free and expressive and eccentric that she brought that out in me, she encouraged that side to come out. She was definitely on the other side of the recording studio, the other side of the glass, egging me on. “More! Crazier! Go further with it!” It was fun. I think we caught the spirit of rock ‘n roll in there.

BB: Was there pressure to make yours different and change up what she started with?
AL: That demo was from five or six years ago, I believe. I think we both felt that was important to make it my own and do something that was more current.

BB: I must know—does Gaga wear sweatpants when no one’s looking or taking photos of her?
AL: (Laughs) That’s one of the things that shocked me. She walked in the studio wearing this beautiful coat and took off the coat and was wearing this bra top and midriff and this see-through pencil skirt with these crazy fishnet stockings and platform stripper boots. She was incredible. That is the real deal.

BB: Let’s talk about some other things going on in pop music. What’s your take on the Britney lip-synch controversy?
AL:I don’t know what it is.

BB: She lip-synched concerts in Australia and they had a hissy-fit, basically.

AL: They haven’t been watching her career for the past few years? That’s what she does.

BB: Is lip-synching during a performance something a pop artist should be ashamed of? Or should audiences just know better going into a show?

AL: It depends on the type of performer you are. Some are known for their voices, and some are performers. I think Britney is a fantastic performer, I think she’s a lot of fun, and gorgeous. She’s dancing! And something when you’re dancing really hard, it’s hard to sing. She’s gotta do what she’s gotta do.

Will Ferrell is Hollywood's most overpaid star, says Forbes

Will Ferrell is Hollywood’s most overpaid star, according to an annual Forbes.com study that examined the average return of investment for each dollar spent on an actor’s salary. Forbes claims that for every dollar Ferrell was paid, the comedian’s films earned $3.29 — the lowest amount among Hollywood’s 100 biggest stars. Most of the blame can be placed on Ferrell’s summer bomb, Land of the Lost, which grossed only $64.8 million worldwide, but had an estimated budget of $100 million. Below is Forbes’ list of the 10 most overpaid stars, with each actor’s average return on investment in parenthesis:

1. Will Ferrell ($3.29)
2. Ewan McGregor ($3.75)
3. Billy Bob Thornton ($4.00)
4. Eddie Murphy ($4.43)

Danny Take us to CHURCH!!

Danny Gokey stopped by the Wolf 95.7 San Fransisco radio studios yesterday to perform two songs, “Better Days” and “It’s Only”.

Which song will be the first single off his debut album due to hit stores in March? Danny announced “It’s Only” as his new single, but I’m hearing that he told DJs this morning his new single will be “Better Days.”

Record labels change course all the time, so it’s possible RCA Nashville had a change of heart about which song should lead off the new album. More will be revealed soon, I’m sure.

Based in real theatrical history, Me and Orson Welles is a romantic coming-of-age story about a teenage actor (Zac Efron) who lucks into a role in Julius Caesar as it's being re-imagined by a brilliant, impetuous young director named Orson Welles at his newly-founded Mercury Theatre in 1937 New York City. The rollercoaster week leading up to opening night is riddled with rehearsal mishaps, a love triangle with Welles' career-minded production assistant (Claire Danes), and the charismatic but sometimes cruel Welles (impressively portrayed by newcomer Christian McKay) staking his career on this risky production.

This screening is a benefit for Austin Film Society's Texas Filmmakers' Production Fund, which was started in 1996 by Richard Linklater to assist emerging Texas filmmakers. www.austinfilm.org

NINE: the film that seduced Hollywood's biggest stars




The corridors of New York’s historic Waldorf-Astoria Hotel are lined with black-and-white photographs of famous visitors and guests who have stayed there in the past. But it is unlikely that the hotel has ever before seen such an august gathering of stars as the group of six Oscar winners and one nominee who met there the other day to talk about their roles in the lavish movie adaptation of the stage musical Nine.

Producer Gives Silent Hill 2 Update

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Silent Hill 2's future was looking pretty foggy.

After grossing nearly $100 million in worldwide box office receipts, there was the question of whether a follow-up to Christophe Gans' 2006 video game adaptation was even going to happen. After all, it was met with a mixed audience reaction. Some were dissatisfied with the story; others appreciated the familiar villains and brutal violence.

BUZZ: Avril Lavigne and Wilmer Valderrama More Than Friends?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Is newly single Avril Lavigne officially moving on from her ex, Deryck Whibley?

The singer was spotted out with Wilmer Valderrama on Saturday night, surprising onlookers by getting close at L.A. hot spot Wonderland.

Lavigne, who filed for divorce from Whibley last month, arrived with Valderrama at midnight.

"Avril had her hand on his knee at one point," says an onlooker. "They looked super cozy together." The couple stayed close until leaving just after 2 a.m.

"There were others at the table but you could tell they only had eyes for each other," the onlooker continues. "They were whispering close the entire night, laughing and having a lot of fun."

A source close to Lavigne tells PEOPLE that the couple has been getting close for the past few weeks. "They've been friends for a long time and have worked together before," says the source.

Meanwhile Whibley, 29, has been spotted out in Las Vegas and L.A. with model/designer Hanna Beth Merjos. "He's enjoying being single for the first time in many years and he's been spending a lot of time working on a new album," says a pal of the Sum 41 rocker.

Reps for Lavigne and Valderrama couldn't be reached for comment.

New Interpol Album in 2010, Paul Banks Still Mole-y



New Interpol Album Coming Next Year

Interpol haven't released a new album since 2007's middling Our Love to Admire. Since then, the members of the band have been pretty busy with extracurricular activities: singer Paul Banks' solo project Julian Plenti, bassist Carlos D's short film, drummer Sam Fogarino's band with Swervedriver's Adam Franklin, Magnetic Morning.

Now, Fogarino tells Paste that the snappily dressed NYC brooders spent spring 2009 recording a new album, which is due for release via Capitol early next year. According to Fogarino, the new LP will recall Interpol's debut album Turn on the Bright Lights, Pitchfork's #20 album of the decade.

The band recorded the album at New York's Electric Lady studio, and they've focused on returning to the stuff that people loved about the band in the first place. Fogarino says, "The new record falls back towards the first. In trying to move forward, there was an unspoken realization that you can't let go of your sonic-defining tag. There was an effort in Daniel [Kessler]'s guitar tone; he rediscovered it playing in his loft space for a year without anybody. The quality of that tone, played in a big room, is just beautiful. It creates an atmosphere ... That big wash of reverb? It's back."

Fogarino also tells Paste that the band doesn't have any illusions about the relative wackness of Our Love to Admire: "[The album] was not our most cohesive moment … It was when reality kicked in as to where we were and where we were never going back to." Perspective!

Selena Gomez joins Miley and does a 180



Selena Gomez may have powers on her show, but she isn’t a fan of Twilight or New Moon.

While on the Bonnie Hunt show, she said, “I don’t watch them. Sorry, I feel bad….even though I am a teenager.”

But she doesn’t have anything against the series due to her ex, Taylor Lautner. When Hunt asked if she was Team Edward or Team Jacob, she of course took Lautner’s werewolf side.

But Gomez is not the only star from Disney that isn’t fond of the sagas.

Miley Cyrus made the comment, “I’ve never seen it and nor will I ever,” while on a Cleveland radio station. “I don’t believe in it. I don’t like vampires…I don’t want anything to do with it. I don’t like the shirts. I don’t like any of it.”

Gomez’s appearance on The Bonnie Hunt Show will air December 16.

Pam Anderson tells kids about sex tape

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The day had to come: Pamela Anderson this week was interviewed by British talk show host Jeremy Kyle, and told him that she had to drop the bomb regarding the sex tape -- the one she made with their father, Tommy Lee that leaked online 11 years ago -- to her sons Brandon, 12, and Dylan, 11.

"I just said, 'Look, Mommy and Daddy were massively in love, we videotaped everything, everything was videotaped, and you’re probably going hear about something at school," she said of the home porn.

She said that she was urged to confess the film to her boys after she appeared in the film Borat.

"I knew kids were going to watch the film and there was a reference to the tape in the movie and they're that age and, you know, people are going start saying things," the Malibu resident said.

The 1998 film, featuring the Baywatch vixen and the lanky Motley Crue drummer, was the first widespread celeb sex tape to circulate online.

Who Makes the Best Career Decisions in Hollywood? Actor Edition

It's November, which means it's officially time to think about the Oscars. People are already placing bets on the top performances even if they haven't seen them yet (think the soon-to-be-released and highly-anticipated 'Nine'). There are some actors who have been on the road to Oscardom ever since they began emoting; others found a way out of their earlier career mishaps and have reinvented themselves into serious actors.

Former VH1 Reality Show Contestant Makes Date Rape Allegations

Brittanya O’Campo, one of those chicks from the VH1 shows "Rock of Love" and "Charm School", has filed a police report claiming she was date raped last Friday night.



The folks over at the The Dirty have been on this case for a while now and even published a nude photo of Brittanya slumped over after the alleged crime.

But the story even gets more bizarre. The alleged rapist, a Portland, Ore. club promoter, rumored to be called Dusty, says the sex was consensual and even thanked Brittanya for the one night of, um, passion. He told her: "I can not even believe last night!!! I had sooo much fun tho." He did this on Twitter, of course!

Now another man has come to Brittanya's defense. Andrew Vrakas, Director of Operations, for I Love VH1 Party (who? what?) sent a letter to The Dirty asking them to remove the photo and to add, that while Brittanya may be a drunk who sleeps around, she would never willingly have sex with a promoter. Never.

"She said she believes someone put something in her drink because she only had 3 drinks and is known for keeping control. She is pressing charges against the perps and has hired a layer to go after anyone who needs to be gone after... I'm a promoter and I know Brittanya well. I know she is no angel, but I know she doesn't screw promoters.. maybe celebs... but not a lowly promoter! She seems likes a bad ass, but she is a sweetheart and a mother with an 8-year-old son."

Really? A sweetheart? Did he see her on any of those VH1 shows and didn't she say she's a violent person who hates kids and is a bad mother?

Chris Brown gets "extremely favorable" probation report



Nov 19 2009 6:18 PM EST
Chris Brown Gets 'Extremely Favorable' Report From Judge
Singer appears at progress hearing on his probation for Rihanna assault.

By Gil Kaufman and Larry Carroll


Chris Brown appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Thursday (November 19) for a progress hearing on his probation — and in the eyes of officials, the singer/actor has earned an "extremely favorable" report.

Brown was in the courtroom again in connection with his June plea for attacking former girlfriend Rihanna earlier this year. Brown was ordered to give Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg an update on his compliance with the sentence given to the 20-year-old singer following his guilty plea to a felony assault charge in the case.

According to The Associated Press, Brown attorney Mark Geragos said in the courtroom that Brown has already completed 100 hours of community service in Richmond, Virginia. This time has included such hard labor as picking up trash alongside state highways. Brown has also completed seven of his 52 domestic-violence classes.

On August 25, Brown was sentenced to five years of probation and 180 days of community labor, which he has been serving in his native Virginia by picking up garbage by the roadside and removing graffiti. In exchange for the guilty plea and the avoidance of any jail time in the case, Brown was also sentenced to a 52-week domestic violence prevention class. Brown must also stay at least 100 yards away from Rihanna for the next five years.

After months of silence, Brown and Rihanna have begun giving interviews over the past few weeks discussing the assault. Brown apologized again to Rihanna in a recent sitdown with MTV News' Sway Calloway while Rihanna has talked with both ABC's Diane Sawyer and MTV News.

Schnegg has warned Brown that he could face jail time if he violates any of the probation terms. The singer is in the midst of his "Fan Appreciation" tour. The next step in Brown's legal proceedings was also scheduled on Thursday: a February 18 date in which he'll once again have to speak with the judge on where his court-ordered probation efforts stand.

Wino's Titty Bag Exploded!



Earlier this week, the newly refurbished Amy Wino checked herself into the clinic, because she had a strange reaction to some over-the-counter cold medication she was taking. According to her daddy, Wino didn't have a leaky nose, bitch just had another leaky boob in her life (the other being her father).

While filming his new TV show (don't get any ideas, Michael Lohan), Mitch Wino set the record straight about why Wino was laid up in the hospital, "It wasn't because she had a cold. She's fine, she just had a little (Mitch points to his chest) leaky something or other."

Wino's titty wasn't leaking, it was crying tears of pain due to Mitch Wino always staring them down while playing with something in his pocket. My nipple is crying just thinking about it. Or maybe I just had too much soy milk with my rum last night.

One of Wino's friends told The Mirror that her crack ball did indeed CRACK, "She saw something oozing out on to her top. She was worried as they looked wonky and to see stuff seeping out was horrible."

Um. Wino has already been declared a toxic zone by the Department of Health, so if strange substances weren't oozing out of Wino's pores, THAT be cause for concern.

And I'm surprised Wino was worried at all. I would think she would just scrape up the silicone jizz, throw it on a spoon, take a lighter to it and smoke it up.

Rihanna: 'I'm Single & Ready To Mingle'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Despite reports that Rihanna is now dating again, the singer told Access Hollywood and "The Billy Bush Show" that she's very much single and ready to meet new guys.

"I'm not dating anyone... I'm not dating anyone," the singer told Billy Bush on Thursday.

She might not be attached to any one particular guy, but she revealed that she has her eyes open when it comes to possible new suitors.

"I'm single and ready to mingle!" she said, but added that her main focus is her music.

"I don't really want to date night now," she continued. "I don't want a serious relationship only because it's a lot of time and energy and a big commitment. And right now I'm just focused on 'Rated R,' [which] is like a child, it needs a lot of attention and is a lot of hard work and a lot of sleepless nights."

And Rihanna would like her fans to know she's not having any sleepless nights with "90210's" Tristan Wilds, which has been reported by numerous online gossip Web sites recently.

"I don't know if I would say he's my friend," Rihanna said when asked rumors of a romance with Tristan. "He came to one of my parties, but we don't have even have each other's cell phone numbers, so I don't know what you call that."

When contacted by Access Hollywood, a rep for Tristan had "no comment" about reports that he was linked to Rihanna.

Critics Slam New Moon

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
New Moon pales in comparison to Twilight, according to the critics.

Chicago Sun-Times' Roger Ebert says "the characters in this movie should be arrested for loitering with intent to moan. Never have teenagers been in greater need of a jump-start. Granted some of them are more than 100 years old, but still: their charisma is by Madame Tussaud."

Ty Burr of The Boston Globe remarks: "Sorry, girls: The thrill is gone." He says that "where the first film’s director, Catherine Hardwicke, plugged into [author Stephenie] Meyer’s vision of supernatural teenage lust with abandon, Chris Weitz is stuck with a sequel that’s a morning-after mope-fest."

Burr also says that the film favors werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) than vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson).

"When he's onscreen, Pattinson’s Edward is all emo posturing under a trembling bouffant - the actor suddenly seems to be embarrassed to be here," says Burr. "Lautner's performance, by contrast, has the warmth of an actual human."

But Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times says Lautner and Kristen Stewart (who plays Bella) have no heat: "The connection between these two is so self-evidently non-romantic that it turns out not to be much of a diversion."

USA Today's Claudia Puig agrees, saying the the Bella-Edward romance is a bore and that "the pace picks up" once Jacob and his pals turn into werewolves. She gave the film 2.5 out of 4 stars.

Variety writes that ladies hoping to gaze at Pattinson the big screen "may be disappointed by Pattinson's reduced presence" in the sequel, "as his Edward appears predominantly in mumbling visions until a cliffhanger that brazenly sets up the next episode."

Despite some harsh reviews, the film is still expected to earn more than $85 million during its first weekend (it has run up the biggest advance sales of any film in history). It opens in 4,024 locations, beginning with 3,500 performances at 12:01 a.m. Friday.

Brothers clip "The Dream"

Natalie Portman and Carey Mulligan in a scene from Jim Sheridan's new drama "Brothers."



source

and another review:

As for the film itself, well, I wasn’t as impressed as Pete Hammond was, but I do think it fits nicely in what has become a great trio of Middle East war films this year. I was less enthusiastic about Tobey Maguire’s performance than I was by Jake Gyllenhaal’s more natural portrayal. In fact, it seems that every time I see Gyllenhaal in something, I’m reminded of how underrated he is as an actor.

The real story of the film, however, is the casting of Bailee Madison and Taylor Geare, two absolutely amazing young girls who knock it out of the park.
Much credit is due to Sheridan, of course, who has shown in the past his ability to get great performances out of children. But these two ladies have talent to spare. It was a really nice surprise.

NPR: The Decade's 50 Most Important Recordings


It seemed like an impossible task, but that didn't stop us from trying. With the first decade of the new millennium coming to a close, we decided to compile a list of the 50 most important recordings of the past 10 years — a list that covers a wide range of styles and genres, with indelible songs and albums that challenge, inspire and captivate.

These are the game-changers: records that signaled some sort of shift in the way music is made or sounds, or ones that were especially influential or historically significant. Favorite records don't necessarily qualify. A lot of people, including nearly everyone at NPR Music, love Fleet Foxes' debut album, but was it one of the decade's most important?

The 50 recordings that appear here are listed alphabetically. We've included artists and bands from a number of musical worlds, from dubstep and hip-hop to Top 40 pop, classical, jazz, world, beardy folk, metal and hard rock. There's some country, too, but admittedly no grindcore or goa trance.

A lot of people, including All Songs Considered listeners, helped put this list together. As we culled through the nominees, tears were shed and arguments were had. But one thing we all agreed on: This was one of the best decades yet for music. We can't wait to hear what comes next.

Lauren Conrad Signs Deal to Write Style Guide

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lauren Conrad's one-woman assault on the publishing world continues.

After Conrad hit the top of the New York Times bestseller list with her debut novel L.A. Candy, HarperCollins Children's Books announced Thursday that it plans to publish Lauren Conrad Style -- a fashion guide -- for fall 2010.

n a statement from the publisher, Conrad says that she's "really excited" about the new book, which will feature new photos of the one-time reality star throughout.

"I think fashion should be fun and reflective of who you are," she says. "I know this guide will offer simple, practical tips to help anyone look fabulous."

A HarperCollins editor adds, "At Lauren's book tour events, nearly every third person she signed a book for asked a question about her hair or clothes or makeup. In just a matter of years, she's become a paragon of style."

Lauren Conrad Style won't be the first tome penned by the 23 year-old in 2010: Sweet Little Lies, the follow-up novel to L.A. Candy, arrives in stores Feb. 2.

Fashion Spotlight: Lily Allen’s Chanel Collaboration

Karl Lagerfeld knows a thing or two about added value. Famous for his irreverent taste as well as his impeccable timing, the maestro of pop fashion always has been the first to anoint the next It band, actor, or model. So no surprise that he plucks pop star Lily Allen to be the face of his new line of Coco Cocoon bags just as she makes headlines for reportedly quitting her day job to become an actress and—you guessed it—promote her own fashion and jewelry lines: Lily Loves and Lily Allen.

Allen, known for her in-your-face lyrics and wild-child trustafarian ways (Dad is Welsh singer and comedian Keith Allen), is slated to star in Neil LaBute’s new West End production of Reasons to Be Pretty in 2010. While she made headlines when she announced several months ago that she’d had enough of recording—“struggling and feeling old” is how the 24-year-old described her state of mind after flogging her second album, It’s Not Me, It’s You—she is downright enthusiastic about her new theatrical gig. She says the theme of LaBute’s play, the damaging cult of beauty, is “close to her heart” and, to hone her second craft, has signed up for private lessons with a tutor from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Beauty Queen Shanna Moakler on Turning Cosmetic Queen

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
If you’re one of the lucky few to have been crowned Miss USA, chances are that you know a thing or two about beauty. And Shanna Moakler is making the most of her makeup know-how with a new line of organic pressed mineral makeup co-created with her personal makeup artist, Daniel McFadden. While the Smoak collection launched just this week, Shanna tells PEOPLE that her love of makeup started at a young age. “My mom is beautiful and had that ’70s kind of glamour,” she says. “My love of lip gloss comes from my mom, who always wore it — and from watching Charlie’s Angels.” Smoak does feature a rainbow of glosses, but it also encompasses everything from eyeliners and eye shadows to blushes and foundation, all based on the Miss California USA host’s principle that makeup should be as fun as it as functional. When women come to her for beauty advice, Shanna tells them to take a carefree approach and experiment. “Don’t be afraid to try new colors,” she says. “If you see a look in a magazine that you like, try it. You know your face better than anyone. Find the tricks that work for you. When you take a little time to put makeup on, it changes your confidence level and you radiate that. It can change your whole day.” Buy the line, which ranges from $8-$39, for yourself at SmoakShop.com.

Paris Hilton may be arrested if disturbancies continue, say LAPD



Paris Hilton has lived with BF Doug Reinhardt a grand total of five months, and already the LAPD, the L.A. City Attorney and the L.A. City Council have gotten involved in her very noisy life.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the LAPD has received numerous noise complaints against Paris and Doug and cops are fed up. We're told from now on when anyone at the house breaks the law, there will be "tickets or arrests."

Neighbors -- one of whom calls Paris "a monster" -- have called their city councilman complaining about the way Paris disrupts the neighborhood with noise, out-of-control parties and fighting. The councilman contacted the City Attorney's office who is now dealing with the neighborhood complaints.

One member of the local patrol tells TMZ he's all too familiar with Paris etiquette. He was called out to her old neighborhood for the same problems.

We're told cops went to the Paris/Doug homestead yesterday to have a sit down with the boisterous couple, but they weren't there -- or, they were hiding.

CHUCK RETURNS EARLY!



Ladies and gentleman, we have a season 3 premiere date!

NBC has announced that Chuck will return on Sunday, Jan. 10 with two back-to-back episodes before moving into its regular Monday-8 pm time-slot on Jan. 11.

Or to put it in Fox terms, it’s a two-night, three-hour, premiere extravaganza!

Chuck’s confirmed list of season 3 series regulars, per NBC’s press release, are Zachary Levi (Chuck), Adam Baldwin (Casey), Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah), Joshua Gomez (Morgan), Sarah Lancaster (Ellie), Ryan McPartlin (Captain Awesome), Mark Christopher Lawrence (Big Mike), Vik Sahay (Lester), and Scott Krinsky (Jeff). So long, Anna Wu.

As I reported last month, Chuck’s third season has been expanded from 13 to 19 episodes.

NBC also announced that Heroes will move back to 9 pm beginning Jan. 11. But first, a special two-hour episode will air on Jan. 4. Additionally, a Peacock rep confirms that the network ordered three additional episodes of Trauma, bringing its season 1 total to 16. Ten of those six episodes will have aired before the new year; dates for the remaining six eppys are TBD.

But enough about that, Chuck’s returning in less than two months (just as I predicted)! Who wants to meet me at Subway tonight to celebrate? First round of $5 foot-longs on me! Oh, almost forgot to tell you. NBC.com just posted a special message from Zach Levi as well as a clip from the new season!

Annie is a Dancing Queen

Don't Stop, the latest full length from Nordic electropopper Annie, delivers a collection of irrepressibly upbeat bangers produced by Xenomania, Bloc Party collaborator Paul Epworth, and Timo Kaukolampi and Richard X, with whom she collaborated on her first album Anniemal.The call-and-response opener "Hey Annie" combines her sweet and direct songwriting with a gritty, 80s analog aesthetic, leading the charge through a dozen sparkly pop songs that mix surface sweetness with a self-aware, and sometimes times melancholy, interior. (PHOTO BY NINA MERIKALLIO)

While a label dispute delayed the release of Don't Stop for more than a year, Annie relocated from Bergen, Norway to Berlin and has been immersing herself in the global capital of forward-thinking electronic music. I spoke with her during her quick DJ tour of the U.S (the New York stop is Saturday at the Tribeca Grand).

ALEX SHERMAN: Are you familiar with some of the laws in New York City that prohibit where and when you can dance? They call them Cabaret Laws.

ANNIE: Yeah! That I find really exotic! It's really strange to have a place where it's not allowed to dance. It's like, you can dance over there but not over here. I find that more exotic than annoying.

SHERMAN: What do you mean by exotic?

ANNIE: I don't know any other place in the world where you have rules that you're not allowed to dance in certain places. I can understand some places you're not allowed to spit or scream something awful, but not allowed to dance to me is really... interesting.

SHERMAN: A lot of people are not aware of the restrictions, they just dance where other people are dancing.

ANNIE: Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Aerosmith Members Say Steven Tyler 'Needs Help'

As Steven Tyler's bandmates ponder the future now that he has decided to take a two-year break from Aerosmith, they are also expressing concerns about the singer's well-being.

"I think that he needs help and that attention needs to be put to his health," drummer Joey Kramer tells PEOPLE.

And Kramer says he isn't referring to the broken shoulder Tyler sustained when he fell off the stage during a concert in August.

Asked if he thinks there is something else going on with Tyler, he says, "I do".

Jennifer Lopez talks about her new album



Jennifer Lopez is ready to return to the music scene after a nearly three year break.

Set to release a new album early 2010, Lopez says the effort, contrary to rumors, has little to do with the father of her twins and husband Marc Anthony, but admits the title is "Love ?".

Speaking with DJ Skee of 102.7 FM this week, Lopez confirmed the title ("Love ?") of the album and dismissed rumors of trouble in her love life.

"It's no so much about my marriage as it is about my experiences," said Lopez. "When they hear the album they're going to know that it's about a lot of different things. I've always sung about love. Throughout my career it's been a big topic for me, but this was something I felt needed to go a lot deeper".

Not abandoning the success she's had with records like "I'm Real," "Glad," and "Get Right," Lopez says "Love ?" is full of uptempo records.

"I think it's consistent with everything I've always done. There's a little bit of urban, a little bit of pop and there's a little bit of dance.... a lot of uptempo."

"Love ?" is due for release early 2010.

Stunning Anna Friel is in the pink as she lights up Bond St



Turning on the Christmas lights last night, Anna Friel got into the seasonal spirit by dressing up as a big present.

The former Brookside actress looked good enough to unwrap as she dazzled London's most prestigious shopping address Bond Street with a baby pink dress with a giant bow on the back.

Perhaps Anna's choice of dress had been inspired by the Christmas lights - which were designed in the shapes of giant bows.

The 33-year-old brunette flaunted her figure in a strapless pink dress which hugged her curves in all the right places.

The mother-of-one completed her look with Forties-style make-up and glittery gold high heels.

After hitting the button to turn on the lights, Anna was presented with a huge bouquet of flowers.

Following her lighting ceremony, Anna dashed a few blocks away to The Theatre Royal Haymarket in time for curtain up at Breakfast At Tiffany's.

Pour Some Sugar on Me

According to the always-reliable Daily Star, Zac spent last night partying too hard at Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding’s club Kanaloa after the premiere of Me and Orson Welles:

After arriving early to avoid a mob of screaming fans, Zac wasted no time in ditching his squeaky clean image. He downed shots of rum, guzzled chests of cocktails and then danced the night away on the tables.

[Ed note: probably something like this...
]

And despite telling us he “loved leaving all the attention behind,” the big screen star spent the night cosying up to beautiful women behind his A-list girlfriend’s back.


So just how smashed did Zefron end up?

Danney Gokey Switches First Single, Remains a Douche.



After getting a good listen to the songs Danny Gokey has recorded, RCA Records Nashville has decided to go with an uptempo song called My Best Days Are Ahead of Me as Danny's first single instead of the ballad It's Only.

"I love this song for what it stands for," says Danny, who recently performed a shortened version of the song on Los Angeles TV station KTLA. "I don't live in the past. I live in the 'now' ... in the future ... and in the dreams that I have. I know that my best days really are ahead of me."

My Best Days Are Ahead of Me was written by Marv Green (Lonestar's Amazed, Reba McEntire's Consider Me Gone) and Kent Blazy (Garth Brooks' (Ain't Goin' Down) 'Til the Sun Comes Up, Chris Young's Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song). The single will be going to country radio shortly, but it's already on Danny's MySpace page and YouTube. A digital single will be available Dec. 22.

Modern Family DRAMA.

Modern Family Feud: Julie Bowen vs. Sofía 'The Cholo Barbie' Vergara

Each week on Modern Family, Sofía Vergara and Julie Bowen’s characters bump heads in their unconventional stepmother-stepdaughter relationship. And in a candid segment on Chelsea Lately last night, Julie Bowen suggested that the discord extends off-camera, all because of another Chelsea Lately segment in which the “Cholo Barbie” could not remember Bowen’s name. Movieline reviews the clash, and recounts each hilarious burn by Bowen, after the jump.

It all started back on October 6, when Vergara visited Chelsea Lately to promote Modern Family. During the interview (video below), Handler remarked on the Colombian bombshell’s thick accent, inciting this exchange:

Hollywood's favourite bit of Brit had to film Down Under to heat up our heartstrings. By Angus Fontaine



The Boys Are Back is your first Australian film. How'd you enjoy it?
Australia is stunning. We shot in McLaren Vale, a region (director) Scott Hicks knows very well and one of the most staggeringly beautiful areas of South Australia. I got a house near the location overlooking this gorgeous beach, brought the family out and we had an amazing few weeks in the great outdoors. My girls still talk about their time in Australia as the best holiday they've ever had. And for me, who considers time away from home as the greatest tyranny of being an actor abroad, it was very special.

Fertile wine country around there. Did you indulge?
I'm into researching roles so yeah, that part of my preparation was a big success!
