Julia Roberts to Adopt a Child from India?

Julia Roberts is said to be in the process of trying to adopt a child from India.


The 42-year-old, who was in London last week for the premiere of her film Eat Pray Love, already has three children with cameraman Danny Moder – twins Hazel and Finn, five, and Henry, three.

She suffered from complications during her previous pregnancies but is still keen to add to her brood.

According to one of her closest pals she and Danny, 41, who married eight years ago, are set to follow in the footsteps of fellow Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Madonna and Meg Ryan by adopting a child from abroad.

tom hardy and a toothpick

So he winked at you several times did he? Well be careful then if you have work to do. Like Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy can be terribly, terribly distracting.

Even with a toothpick in his mouth.

It’s an underappreciated art, the way a guy holds his body. This is part of Brad Pitt’s appeal too. That he’s not only pretty, but that his body can perform as well. Nothing is more disappointing than a beautiful man with the most unsightly walk.

Tom Hardy does not have this problem.

This is Tom working with Reese Witherspoon yesterday on the Vancouver set of This Means War. Am told they get along very well. Not like they’re about to have an affair well, no of course not, not like that, but well in the way that he loosens up her tight ass and she can let go a little, actually have some fun. They say everyone adores him on set.

Also attached – their co-star Chris Pine heading out of town, preferring to spend his weekend off in Los Angeles.

Whoopi Goldberg Still Backs Mel Gibson



The actress says she can’t defend Gibson’s taped rants at his baby mama ex Oksana Grigorieva, but she will support him in his hour of need.

“I can’t defend someone who got angry like that,” Goldberg said. “But we all get angry. I’ve cussed people out. I hope no one finds those tape.”

Whoopi also questioned the validity of Grigorieva’s domestic violence case against Gibson, which has been postponed until an alleged extortion plot against the actor is investigated.

“I just wonder what happened with her court case,” Goldberg said. “Now that’s a story.”

Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel and Gaspard Ulliel's Twin Marc-Andre Grondin To Star in Goon



Seann William Scott and Jay Baruchel are lacing up their skates for "Goon," an indie hockey comedy.

Alison Pill and Marc-Andre Grondin are jumping onto the ice for the movie, which begins shooting in Winnipeg mid-October with Michael Dowse behind the camera.

Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, the frequent collaborator of Seth Rogen, wrote the script, inspired by the book "Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey" written by Doug Smith and Adam Frattasio.

Baruchel is also a producer on the project, which is being produced by DCP Productions' Don Carmody along with David Gross and Jesse Shapira.

"Goon" centers on Doug Glatt, a bouncer (Scott) who has been touched by the fist of God. Upon discovering both his right hook and skates, he joins a downtrodden hockey team and inspires them into new heights.

Baruchel is Glatt's best friend. Pill plays the female lead role of while Grondin plays a French-Canadian star hockey player.

ICM-repped Scott last starred opposite Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan in Kevin Smith's "Cop Out." He just wrapped "Harry Birthday," Brett Ratner's segment of the shorts-oriented comedy from Relativity, and recently formed Elephant Production with Steve Conrad.

Baruchel, repped by CAA and Thruline, starred in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and voiced the lead character in the animated film "How to Train Your Dragon."

Pill, repped by WME and the Burstein Co., was seen in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" and also appeared in "The Pillars of the Earth" miniseries. Grondin, repped by ICM and Thruline, is best known for starring in the award-winning Canadian movie "C.R.A.Z.Y."

MOUSE GUARD POST

On a sweltering Sunday afternoon, writer and artist David Petersen sat down with Joshua Dysart at the West Hollywood Book Fair to talk about his Eisner-winning comic book, "Mouse Guard."

"The short elevator pitch is 'mice with swords,'" said Petersen, "living in a culture where all the predators of the world are trying to get them. They are food."

Protecting mouse-kind is the Mouse Guard, warriors who escort travelers from mouse city to mouse city, allowing free trade and travel. "The Mouse Guard is there to make sure mice don't become prisoners of their own cities," said Petersen.

navid throws shade at teddy, remains irrelevant.



Their characters may have started out as straight high school students, but once the rumors started flying that one 90210 character would go gay, actor Michael Steger wanted it to be his.

Instead, his costar Trevor Donovan’s character Teddy Montgomery shed his womanizing ways to come out of the closet.
 

Steger, who plays Navid Shirazi, told Hollywood Life, “I think I would have approached it organically and honestly. I would have been excited!”

He added, “Trevor Donovan has a pretty amazing storyline coming up and I think that is going to be really cool to see how it unfolds.”

Fitty Defends Twitter Comment, Remains Douchey While Doing So



Rapper 50 CENT has defended his controversial post on Twitter.com which implied gay men should commit suicide, insisting the comment was misinterpreted.

The hip-hop star sparked outrage earlier this week (begs27Sep10) by writing, "If you (are) a man and your (sic) over 25 and you don't eat pu**y just kill yourself damn it. The world will be a better place."

Many of his followers criticised him for the remark - but the In Da Club hitmaker has explained the post and is adamant he wasn't making an "anti-gay statement".

In a post on the microblogging site, he writes, "The other night I made a joke about a b**w job. My male followers enjoyed it. So I then went on to joke about women receiving the same.

"Somehow they turned a simple joke about oral sex into an anti-gay statement. I have nothing against people who choose an alternative lifestyle, in fact I've publicly stated my mom loved women. It's funny how people think negative statements are newsworthy but positive statements are not worthy of coverage."


I figured that's what he really meant, but that doesn't make it less stupid, and it doesn't cancel out the other offensive things he's said. And it's not a choice, dumbass.

Jesse Williams: Half Naked on Screen (Fully Naked in our dreams)


 "Grey's Anatomy" actor Jesse Williams will soon be slipping out of his hospital scrubs. In a steamy episode intended to make hearts race, the sizzling anatomy reveal is sure to account for a pulse increase. The former model isn't just a piece of meat, though. Williams says he's got the brains and the brawn to breakthrough in Hollywood.

While WIlliams says his character, "Dr. Avery" is "a confident, successful surgeon" who doesn't get involved with "drama", he'll obviously be getting a bit side-tracked in the October 14 run of the show.

Victoria's Secret Halloween costumes



Earlier this year, parent company Limited Brands announced Victoria's Secret would launch a collection of Halloween costumes this fall. The costumes are available for purchase online and in stores now, with 12 different costumes to select from.
These "Sexy Little Fantasies" are risque costumes that may not be the best choice to wear to just any Halloween party, as it shouldn't be suprising that Victoria's Secret Halloween collection should be worn for private parties only.

Available costumes include (insert "sexy" before each) cat, air hostess, bride, maid, nurse, senorita, ballerina, angel, cowgirl, sailor, valentine, and santa. Each costume is priced between $68-$198 -- and less material = more expensive.

Generic music that anyone could do being used in airplane safety demo



Lady Gaga and Katy Perry's music have featured in an airline safety demonstration with a difference.

During a demonstration of how to use seat belts and life jackets, cabin crew on-board a Cebu Pacific Airlines flight danced to pop hits California Gurls and Just Dance. The performance was filmed by a passenger who posted the clip on video-sharing website YouTube.

Candice Iyog, vice President of Marketing at Cebu Pacific Airlines, said: "Cebu Pacific has always been known as a fun airline, we wanted to get the message across to our customers that flight safety doesn't have to be boring.

"This was an experiment that we hope to repeat and also a chance to showcase the talent of some of our cabin crew staff."

The performance took place while the plane was at cruising altitude, with the cabin crew giving a normal safety demonstration before take-off.

A spokesman from the UK Civil Aviation Authority said: "Our general approach to safety announcements is that so long as the relevant information is imparted to passengers in an audible, understandable fashion, anything that gets more people to pay attention to this safety critical information is a positive thing as it could save their lives."

Cebu Pacific Airlines is the largest airline in the Philippines and is renowned for its low cost fares and gimmicks that include in-flight games and giveaways.

Isaiah Mustafa does nerd-tastic Luke Cage spoof for "Marvel Super Heroes: What The--?!".

[Isaiah Mustafa] Joins the Avengers

The Old Spice Guy has ridden his jet ski lion and found his way to the Avengers tower

Not only is he the man that your man could smell like, but the Old Spice Guy, whose real name is Isaiah Mustafa, is also something of a comic book geek, and has a burning desire to play the Marvel super hero Luke Cage.

With that in mind, when Marvel needed someone to lend his voice to Cage in the latest Marvel Super Heroes: What The --?! web show, it knew where to go. The What The --?! series is a tongue-in-cheek, satirical take on the Marvel Universe, so Mustafa's Old Spice-themed performance fit right in. It's such a wonderfully silly video you can't help but laugh.

Cage isn't one of Marvel's better known heroes, but he was one of the first African-American super heroes to have their own comic series, and is considered a groundbreaking, if occasionally controversial, character. Aside from his comic book appearances, Cage has featured in the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance games, and was a support character in Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. Supposedly, there is also a movie based on the character in the works, although it's been in development for over five years with no sign of ever getting made.



SOURCE

LOL FOREVER @ "Beta Ray Bill" / "MODOK" / "Sugar Man" / "Deadpool" cameos. A part of me would actually rather see Mustafa play Falcon. He's got the body build for Falcon's signature spandex. Visualize it. But of course, Marvel aint making a movie on Falcon just yet.

SEAN JOHN GOES TO EUROPE


Hip hop mogul, Sean Combs aka P. Diddy, has planned to bring his clothing label “Sean John” to Europe since three years ago, but it only happened now. What gives?

“We had planned on [bringing the collection to Europe] three years ago but then the recession came and we really wanted to focus on making sure we stayed consistent in the U.S. But right now with what’s going on economically in Europe there’s opportunities, because people still need exciting things going on in their stores to keep people coming in…we feel now the time is right to really start the conversation.”


Diddy showed the men’s and women’s line of Sean John at London’s Sanderson Hotel to potential partners. Word is, Sean John could begin retailing in Europe in Fall 2011. But how will Europeans react to Diddy’s designs? Steven McSween, Vice President of design for Sportswear and Licensed Collection at Sean John stated:

“The feedback we’ve been hearing…is that the aesthetic has surprised some people — it already does feel like it has a European flair to it. There’s historical men’s references, but just done a little cooler and a little cleaner to epitomize [Combs’] lifestyle.”


Diddy wowed the crowd with his ‘unexpected’ collection as well, as the Sean John lineup consist of men’s sweaters with intarsia military motifs, slim fit men’s jeans in faded khaki washes and silk bomber jackets. There was also the dressier and dapper side of Sean John which included navy blazer with silver buttons, and also women’s line which showcased tailored leather jackets. Diddy commented on the reaction:

“Almost anyone who has come here today was like, ‘I thought the product would have logos on it, I thought it would be baggy,’ when actually it’s timeless fashion, it has a little aspiration and it’s very clean…it’s great product.”

Binge eating in Vogue causes plus-size controversy

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Plus-size model Crystal Renn doesn't like being called "plus-size". She also doesn't like people making fun of her past eating disorder. So why would the size 10 model indulge in a photoshoot of face-stuffing sausage, flanks of meat and a massive serving of spaghetti?

CONTROVERSIAL WORK OF PHOTOG TERRY RICHARDSON

The series of "fashionable" photos featuring the 24-year-old Renn were the brainchild of celebrity photographer Terry Richardson. They aren't the first in controversial photos for the photographer, who's been known in the past for "sexually exploiting males" and creating a reputation of photoshoots that are to an "extent autobiographical and are noted for their controversial, graphic sexual subject matter."

The pile-on photos of Renn pigging out are not only strengthening the myth that plus-size models are diet negligent but are also putting Renn's reputation back in "potentially disastrous" territory, according to StyleBistro.com.

While Crystal has, in the past, come forward about her past eating disorder she's also been quick to point her finger at the strictly-thin modeling and fashion industry. While the young model worked in the business sporting a size 0, in the past seven years she's made a name for herself as a happy, plus-size model at a size 12 (now a size 10).

Since we had an Atwood post...

Salman's children

The fatwa, the four marriages, the party image – Salman Rushdie has become known for more than his prizewinning novels. But his sons are what matter most, so he has written a book for teenagers



He was the superstar of postcolonial literature in the 1980s, the beleaguered poster boy for free speech in the 1990s, as he scuttled from house to house accompanied by special branch officers following the fatwa issued by Ayatollah Khomeini in response to his novel, The Satanic Verses. But in the early years of the 21st century Salman Rushdie underwent a curious metamorphosis to become a figure of fun.


Partly this was due to his marriage to the Indian-American model and TV presenter Padma Lakshmi, a beautiful woman 23 years his junior who was also half a head taller. Newspaper gossips marvelled at the unlikely pairing, though it was hardly the first time a clever and successful man had attracted a talented younger woman. It could have been the novelty of the celebrity-in-hiding let loose on the New York social circuit: Rushdie met Lakshmi at a Tina Brown party, and was friends with lots of famous people.


Perhaps it was also the sense that the novels of those years – The Ground Beneath Her Feet, Fury, Shalimar the Clown – did not quite live up to expectations: that the apparatus of agents, advances and assistants had got out of sync with reality. Bono borrowed the title of The Ground Beneath Her Feet for a U2 song. The books, unlike Midnight's Children and The Satanic Verses, did not win prizes.


Next week Rushdie publishes a novel for teenagers – or rather, for one teenager in particular, Milan, his 13-year-old son by his third wife Elizabeth West. The book, Luka and the Fire of Life, is a companion volume to Haroun and the Sea of Stories, which he wrote exactly 20 years ago – in the dark early days of the fatwa – for Zafar, the son he had with his first wife Clarissa Luard.

Rumor Mill: Natalie Portman as Lois Lane in Superman Reboot?‎

Work on a Superman reboot is currently underway at Warner Bros, and while producer Christopher Nolan is still looking for a director, they're also thinking casting. In particular they have someone in mind for Lois Lane: Natalie Portman.

Apparently Warner Bros. wanted her for the part back when they were making Superman Returns but couldn’t get her and eventually went with Kate Bosworth instead. I’m an unabashed fan of Superman Returns and while I can’t imagine anyone other than Brandon Routh playing the character of Supes, yeah, we can live without Bosworth. She never really captured the spitfire, take no prisoners style of Lois. That’s something that Portman can bring in spades.



The rumor of her possible involvement comes from the generally reliable reporters at Moviehole where they say the can get her for the part, but only if Darren Aronofsky ends up directing the film. Portman has been getting rave reviews for her role in the upcoming Aronofsky film Black Swan so it makes sense that she’d be willing to follow Aronofsky wherever he goes and that Aronofsky might want to bring her with him. Unfortunately Darren’s name is just one of several on the list of directors being considered to direct Superman: If At First You Don’t Succeed. No Aronofsky, no Natalie Portman as Lois Lane.

Tina Fey Talks Lindsay Lohan



Tina Fey has opened up regarding her troubled former "Mean Girls" lead actress, Lindsay Lohan.
"Lindsay is in rehab now? Right? We think?" Tina asked host Andy Cohen during an appearance on Andy's Bravo show, "Watch What Happens Live," on Thursday. "I think that's good [that she's in rehab]. Yeah."
The hilarious "30 Rock" star/creator, who wrote and starred in 2004's hit high school clique comedy, "Mean Girls," casting Lindsay in the lead role of Cady Heron, said she hasn't seen the actress "in a long time," but is hoping for the best.
"[Lindsay's] so great, and such a beautiful girl," the "Saturday Night Live" alum said. "I hope she gets well."
