daily dose of perfection, doctor's orders

Doing what she can to give back, ethereal and Australian goddess, Cate Blanchett attended the City Talk 2011 at the town hall in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday (March 8).

The “Curious Case of Benjamin Button” star looked radiant in a red suit and heels as she shared her ideas about fostering a more “green and vibrant culture precinct” at Walsh Bay.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Blanchett will return to the Sydney’s Kennedy Center in August to play a woman named Yelena in Chekhov’s play “Uncle Vanya.”

The show is put on by the Sydney Theatre Company and will run from August 4-27.

Starbucks rolls out new logo

SAN FRANCISCO, March 8 (Xinhua) -- The World's largest coffeehouse company Starbucks on Tuesday rolled out its new logo to celebrate its upcoming 40-year birthday.

The Seattle-based company said in a statement that the new logo removes the Starbucks wordmark around the siren and enlarging the siren image.

The iconic white cups and promotional merchandise would carry the new logo, and four store fronts (in Beijing, Paris, London and New York) would unveil the new logo on Tuesday, Starbucks said.

The Starbucks logo was at first a brown-colored, topless, twin- tailed siren and it has been streamlined for three times over the years.

The first Starbucks was opened in Seattle, in the U.S. state of Washington, on March 30, 1971. Currently, the company has coffeehouses in more than 55 countries and regions.

Agyness Deyn and James Franco are back on

HOLLYWOOD hunk James Franco and Agyness Deyn are back together... not that anyone actually knew they were an item in the first place.

They were rumoured to be dating last year, shortly after the 127 Hours star split from actress Ahna O’Reilly, but they had a “cooling off period” during which James presented the Oscars.

The couple had never been pictured together until recently when James, 32, posted a few videos online of himself and 28-year-old Agyness chatting inanely about Vietnamese food.

It’s probably “art” or something.

The handsome couple were attending the Los Angeles nuptials of Black Eyed Peas producer Keith Harris and dancer Brandee Stephens.

dumb kelly osbourne makes heterophobic remark

Kelly Osbourne split with her last boyfriend Luke Worrall after he reportedly cheated on her, so now the TV personality says she's sick of straight men altogether.

She told Closer magazine: “I’m fed up with straight men -- I’d love a baby with my gay best friend Nate. We’d be the perfect parents and my mum would love it!”

Kelly -- who is the new face of Madonna and her daughter Lourdes’ clothing line Material Girl -- recently revealed she is dating 26-year-old musician Rob Damiani, but the pair are planning to take things slowly.

She said: “It's true, I'm having fun getting to know someone new. I met Rob over in the UK recently, and I want to take things slowly, so that means keeping some things private."


As a gay man, I will gladly tell her that none of us want you, kelly.

Oprah Passed Over and Dis-respected By Aretha Franklin

Oprah Winfrey is incensed over the fact the Aretha Franklin gave a major interview to her rival, Wendy Williams, and not to her at least according to the National Enquirer.

Oprah wanted to talk to Aretha about the war she has been waging with pancreatic cancer and surviving emergency surgery for it recently.

“Oprah is about as angry as can be,” said an insider. “This is the final season of her show and she’s been pushing to land all the big ‘gets’ out there. Oprah is embarrassed that Aretha – a legend – chose Wendy, who is a relative newcomer in the TV talk show world.”

While Oprah, 57, gives Wendy, 46, credit for snagging the much-coveted sit-down with Aretha, she’s still “steaming,” adds the insider, telling pals that Wendy’s show is “a long way” from hers, and criticizing it for being “silly and gossipy.”

Following her operation, the 68-year-old “Respect” singer made her spotlight appearance in a videotaped message that was broadcast during the Grammy Awards.

Aretha shocked fans by looking like she had lost about 80 pounds from her once 300-pound frame. Because of the intense curiosity about Aretha’s condition, scoring an interview with Aretha was a major coup for Wendy.

Yet Oprah insisted she would’ve been able to outdo Wendy by using her clout to pack her show with legendary heavy hitters paying homage to the musical icon.

“Oprah was not going to keep the whole interview on the illness, which she knows Aretha is reluctant to fully discuss,” said the source.

“She was going to get Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy, the founder of Motown Records, for a touching tribute. But instead, Aretha chose Wendy – and Oprah is NOT happy!”

Prodigious Prison Rants...

Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy was released from prison on Monday after serving three and a half years on a gun-possession charge. During that time, the voluble emcee used his Internet access and old-school pen-and-paper interview privileges to hip the world to his theories on secret societies based around gigantic demon owls, President Obama's neocolonialist status, the problem of bats in the prison system, and the proliferation of wack rappers blighting the modern hip-hop scene.

The entertainment value of these uppercase missives bodes well for his upcoming book, My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep's Prodigy, to be released in April (although it'll be the publishing industry's most tragic failure of nerve if it's not printed in all caps). To celebrate his newfound freedom, here are 10 of his most sensational prison revelations:

Basic Spears Has 35 Writers on Femme Fatale... isn't a single one while doing so

Rolling Stone writer, Will Hermes, has heard the entire Femme Fatale album, and says Britney has 0 writing credits for any track, but features 35 other writers.

Do you care that Britney did not write ANY songs on Femme Fatale?

Don't Curr
Britney Who?

I am very disappointed to find out none of the songs Britney wrote made the final cut. I have no doubts this album will be a smash, hit number one, sell millions and be the best album of her career. But, after a certain point, it's time to focus on HER creativity and HER talents as an artist and less on the numbers and accomplishments. In the end she had the final say and she's cool with this, so I guess I have to be too.

Or, do I?


I'm kind of glad tbh. My Baby was boring and skippable. I'm sure the album will be even better and will be poppin my pussy to it etc. Also what is this thing about FF leaking? jw.

Pete Wentz Tells Ashlee Simpson He Will Pay

Speculation that there's a custody battle brewing between divorcing couple Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson and that he doesn't want to pay her spousal support are far off the mark, a source close to the situation exclusively tells

In court papers filed Tuesday, Wentz requested joint legal and physical custody of their son Bronx Mowgli, for termination of the court's jurisdiction to award spousal support and for legal costs to be split equally, but according to our source, the papers don't reflect the musician's true feelings.

WSJ: Catherine Hardwicke - Going From Fangs to Folklore

BURBANK, Calif.—On the Warner Brothers lot here, there is a lovely Wisteria Lane-like cul-de-sac of suburban homes called Warner Village. At least, it's lovely on the outside. On the inside, the houses are all slightly dumpy production offices. For the last several months, one of them has belonged to Catherine Hardwicke, the Texas-born, preternaturally cool director of "Twilight." Last week, she was putting the finishing touches on the DVD extras for "Red Riding Hood," her $42 million twist on the classic tale starring Amanda Seyfried.

"Welcome to our crack house," Ms. Hardwicke, 55, said as she showed a reporter around the space that she and her team have inhabited since last September, when they wrapped principal photography on the film in Vancouver.

In one room, an editor was assembling a video of a Fever Ray song that appears on the film's soundtrack. "She's kind of the Lady Gaga of Sweden," Ms. Hardwicke said of the singer. Elsewhere, another editor was working on a music video for one of the soundtrack's love songs, as well as a distillation of the film into 73 seconds. "At 72 seconds, it just fell apart," Ms. Hardwicke joked.

Friends since childhood, Svein (the darker-haired one) and Torbjørn (Aryan techno viking) have gone on to release three more well received albums, and the videos supporting their singles have regularly won praise for their wit and imagination.

DiS met Röyksopp shortly before their recent appearance at Bug, Adam Buxton’s regular celebration of music videos at BFI Southbank, where they were to join Adam on stage for a celebration of their much-admired promos.

Mike Starr Remembered by Alice in Chains Bandmates, Rockers

Alice in Chains members Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney have spoken out about their former bandmate and bassist Mike Starr, who was found dead Tuesday (Mar. 8) in a house in Salt Lake City.

"Jerry and Sean are mourning the loss of their friend and ask that the media respect their privacy - and the privacy of Mike's family - during this difficult time," Cantrell and Kinney said in a statement. "Their thoughts & prayers are with the Starr family."

A slew of rockers have shared their thoughts on Starr's passing via Twitter. Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler, who like Starr was an alum of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab," wrote, "R.I.P. Mike Starr!! Such a sad day! :( :("

Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum took the opportunity to send an anti-drug message: "Drugs and alcohol aren't a joke. Please take care of yourself and respect yourself. We lost Mike Starr today. Rest in Peace man."

Mike Portnoy, the former drummer for Dream Theater, echoed the sentiment: "RIP Mike Starr... I watched his struggle on Celebrity Rehab and had my fingers crossed for his recovery... this disease kills... sad stuff..."

Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx, who has struggled with heroin addiction tweeted: "RIP Mike Starr. Another fallen Soldier to addiction... :("

Tweeted Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton: "Horrible news. RIP Mike Starr."

Among the other celebrities sharing their thoughts via Twitter were Dr. Drew Pinsky, who treated Starr on "Celebrity Rehab" and "Sober House." "Devastating to hear of Mike Starr succumbing to his illness," Pinsky wrote. "So very sad. Our prayers are with his family."

"Mike Starr may you RIP," comedian Dane Cook tweeted. "Your music loves on forever."

Pro wrestler/"Dancing with the Stars" contestant Chris Jericho also took an anti-drug stance and referenced Charlie Sheen and the actor's recent hoopla.

"Sorry to hear about Mike Starr's death," he wrote. "Amid all of the joking about tiger blood and winning, let's not forget that drugs kill people."

The 'Kid' Is Not Alright: Dave Foley in Dire Straights

Dave Foley guest-starred on ABC's 'Desperate Housewives' last month as the guy who couldn't get the girl (Teri Hatcher) even when he pledged to give her a life-saving kidney -- all because he morphed into a stalker. The former 'NewsRadio' and 'Kids in the Hall' star probably wishes his real-life problems were only that simple.

On Feb. 3, the dry funny man agonized on fellow comedian Marc Maron's podcast, WTF, about how he will be thrown in jail if he returns to his native Canada because he says he can't afford court-ordered child support payments to Tabatha Southey, his first wife, and their two teenage sons, 18 and 15.
Foley, who rose to fame in the Canadian comedy troupe 'Kids in the Hall,' met Southey, a freelance journalist, in 1983 and wed her eight years later. They divorced in 1997 after six years of marriage. His second marriage to actress Crissy Guerrero ended in 2008. They have a daughter together.

At a Nov. 15 default hearing in Toronto, a judge from the Ontario Court of Justice – using information including Foley's most recent tax return and credit card bills -- upheld the existing child support agreement that says Foley must pay his ex-wife and their two sons child support of $10,700, which has been indexed for inflation. (Southey waived her right to spousal support when they divorced.)

Guy Fieri's Lamborghini stolen

Celebrity’s $200K Lamborghini Stolen In Daring San Francisco Heist

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – In a heist fit for Hollywood, a thief rappelled into a San Francisco car dealership early Tuesday morning and made off with a top-of-the-line sports car.

The swashbuckling crook apparently climbed over rooftops, hooked up a climbing rope and slipped in a window of the Bentley, Lamborghini, Lotus dealership. All that was left behind was a bag of mountaineering gear.

The thief then made for a yellow and black 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo, which just happens to be owned by celebrity chef Guy Fieri, who lives in  Santa Rosa. After cutting the lock to the dealership’s garage door, the burglar disappeared into the night.

Car dealers said it may be difficult to sell the car with a distinctive bumblebee paint job. One speculated that the crook may try to get the vehicle out of the country. That job may prove even more risky than rappelling into the dealership.

With a failed marriage, stalled career, weight issues and an embarrassing arrest for public drunkenness, Christina Aguilera's world has spiraled out of control. In our new issue, we reveal the painful secret that caused her meltdown and detail her toxic new romance. In the March 21 issue of Star — on sale now — we report that the singer is plagued with personal demons — and how the collapse of her marriage to Jordan Bratman last fall has completely derailed her.

“Christina’s lost her confidence since she split from Jordan,” an insider tells Star. “She gets terribly sad, and that’s when all the awful memories come flooding back and she ends up numbing herself with booze and food.” Her new life with bad boy beau Matthew Rutler — who was arrested for DUI when Christina was busted for public drunkenness — hasn’t helped her regain stability – with her friends calling him an enabler. And Christina turns more and more to alcohol to help her with her woes – a faltering career, significant weight gain and a potential custody battle over 3-year-old Max. "Everyone is worried sick," says a concerned pal. "She needs to get help before something even more serious happens."

The two play nurses at a hospital where two couples are competing to deliver the first babies of the new year to win a cash prize.

Halle originally pulled out of the romantic comedy in late January due to a custody battle with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey, but rejoined the film a few weeks ago.

Ian Somerhalder Dishes on Klaus

Fans will have to wait what feels like a lifetime before the next new episode of "Vampire Diaries" airs on April 7, and until then, Ian Somerhalder (or as I like to call him Smolderhotter), is dishing on what fans can expect in that sure-to-be-juicy episode. Guess what everyone? Damon and Stefan are up to their old sibling rivalry ways! Well, that's sort of fun!

"I know that Damon and Stefan are battling some really cool supernatural forces, but Damon and Stefan are starting to butt heads again and starting to bicker again," he explained to MTV News atCosmopolitan magazine's 2011 Fun Fearless Males party. "Which is what I think was a lot of fun about the show. As much as I love Paul Wesley and we're bros off screen, it's great when we're battling on screen."


The other big headline from the new episodes is that we FINALLY get to meet original baddie Klaus (played by Joseph Morgan), and Ian admitted he's a really cool force to have on set. "I've only seen him in his wardrobe and in his wardrobe tests, but he's a magnificent guy and I know his abilities are way up there," he explained. "I think everyone's on their toes now more because he's a bad ass."

Chris Brown: Rihanna Assault Was a "Mishap"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Chris Brown is aware of his own infamy.

The singer, 21, is frank with Page Six Magazine (in Thursday's New York Post) about the ongoing fallout from his February 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna.

"People are always gonna talk. But I'm in a positive place. I consider myself a grown-ass man," says the star, whose new album F.A.M.E. stands for "Forgiving All My Enemies."

Speaking of forgiveness, Brown says he's done apologizing for the brutal Rihanna attack. "At the end of the day," muses the "Forever" singer, "if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I'm gonna look like a damn fool."

A judge recently downgraded a restraining order barring contact between Brown and Rihanna, 23. (Brown is serving five years probation for the crime, and completed court-mandated domestic violence classes plus 180 hours of hard labor last year.)

In the wake of that shocking scandal, Brown says "a handful of people stuck by me," including fellow musicians Pitbull and producer Pharrell Williams.

Still, he complains that many folks "turn[ed] away. They don't want to get involved with it because they don't want their name attached to anything negative. Unknowingly, they kind of show their true colors when they do that."

He doesn't exactly fault those former friends for walking away after the assault -- which he calls a "mishap."

"You can't blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don't want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap."

"The last two years, everybody dissed me,"
Brown says. "But my fans were so dedicated. The way I look at it is, you can't walk around mad, because then you just prove everybody right that you're an angry person."


'Skins' no longer cool?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Skins has gone from being the coolest to the least fashionable programme on television. After all, when you have to try that hard, it's already over.

For a while the creators made it look effortless. When Skins first appeared, it was the TV equivalent of one of its own characters: unfettered, impudent, wide-eyed with possibilities – a grown-up Grange Hill revelling in the shock of the new.

But, in four years and five series, it has aged it terribly. Suddenly, Skins no longer seems like something created by young people who really represent the youth. It now looks more like a TV executives' idea of what a drama for young people should be and what young people are like.

Ex-Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan becomes a financial adviser

Former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan has started his own financial advice company.

McKagan, who now plays in Velvet Revolver and Duff McKagan's Loaded, has partnered with investor Andy Bottomley to start financial advice firm Meridian Rock.

Speaking to Fortune Magazine about the venture, McKagan said that his new firm would help out young musicians who could be caught unaware by sudden financial success.

He said of his days in at the peak of their fame: "I couldn't make sense of it [the money he was earning]. I didn't know how much we had made or lost on the tour. As a 30 year-old millionaire, how do I admit to somebody that I don't know what the fuck I'm doing?"

He added back then he "didn’t know what a stock was, what a bond was".

McKagan is qualified in financial matters. He attended a finance course at Santa Monica Community College and then went on to enrol full time at Seattle University’s Albers School of Business.

He will return to the UK this June with Duff McKagan's Loaded to play Download Festival.

A Masterful Jane Eyre Stresses Independence


If Jane Eyre is not the greatest of the Great Books with a permanent position on required-reading lists, it may be the most frequently filmed: At least 10 cinematic versions of the story have been made dating back to the dawn of the silent era—more, if you count made-for-TV adaptations and loose glosses such as Jacques Tourneur’s I Walked With a Zombie.

Considering the glut of Jane Eyres available to anyone with a Netflix account, there may be no more compelling reason for this new version of the story—directed by Cary Fukunaga and starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender—than timing. In 1996, when Franco Zeffirelli had the last big-screen go at Charlotte Brontë’s novel, the Merchant Ivory era of prestige period-pic catnip for Academy voters and AP English students was just past its peak; 15 years later, if there’s anything hotter in Hollywood than dull British respectability, it’s gothic romances about teen girls.

Stargate Universe actor Robert Carlyle is sticking with television after his two-year gig on the Destiny.  He’s landed a new gig on ABC.  Carlyle has been cast in the fantasy pilot Once Upon a Time for ABC, according to

Carlyle made the switch from feature films to television for the third Stargate series, on which he plays Dr. Nicholas Rush.  The final episodes are now airing Monday nights on Syfy Channel.

Once Upon a Time

Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love) will star as Snow White, and Mark Mylod (Entourage) is directing.

I LOVE Robert Carlyle. And his hot accent. Him AND Ginnifer in this?? I can't wait!

Tina Fey Thanks Alec Baldwin for Making 30 Rock More Than a ‘Low-Rent Two and a Half Men ’


Last night, Alec Baldwin was honored by the Museum of the Moving Image, giving a number of his pals an opportunity to say kind things about him, while also cracking jokes at his expense. Lorne Michaels complimented Baldwin on being the "rarest of animals, a liberal who looks good in a suit. He’s also, more impressively, the only Baldwin brother about whom no one has ever asked: 'Which one is he?'” And Michael Keaton, Baldwin's Beetlejuice co-star, remarked, "When you look at the [clip] reel of this guy ... and the photographs and pictures, and you see the range of the things he’s done ... I think to myself, What an extraordinary head of hair this man has. No, he does." Baldwin himself made a speech, saying working on 30 Rock was the most fun he’s ever had: “Who knew that playing a self-seeking, Machiavellian, Republican corporate fuck would turn out to be the highlight of my life.” And Tina Fey’s tribute was so delightful that we’ve printed it in its entirety.

Your Favorite Wacky Morning Radio Show Is a Festival of Lies

On Monday we learned about a curious new venture from Premiere Radio Networks that offers radio shows "voice talent to take/make your on-air calls"—in other words, fake talk-radio callers.

And then we heard from a few folks in the business, and it turns out this is a thing! All of wacky morning drive-time radio, apparently, is populated by voice actors pretending to be jilted lovers—or in at least one instance, an aviation expert talking about a local plane crash. Ryan Seacrest is a major practitioner, and Dick Clark as a major supplier. We talked to some fake radio callers, and here are their stories.

"Any time you hear something surreal on a morning radio show, it's bullshit," one veteran independent radio producer told me. "The great prank phone calls—they're all fake. If it's top 40, and if it has a morning show, then it uses actors."

While Premiere's "On Call" service is relatively new, there are several long-standing services that supply scenarios, story lines, and actors to desperate local morning shows. The problem is obvious: DJs have hours to fill, and if anyone is actually calling into the station, they are in all likelihood boring people with boring problems. Enter United Stations Radio Networks, a radio company co-founded by Dick Clark, who still serves as its chairman emeritus.

Julianne Moore is set to star as Sarah Palin in HBO Films' Game Change. Directed by Jay Roach, the movie is based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s 2010 book about the 2008 Presidential elections and follows John McCain’s presidential campaign, from his selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.

Danny Strong, who previously wrote the Roach-directed HBO movie Recount, about the aftermath of the 2000 Presidential elections, penned the script for Game Change. Roach is executive producing, with Strong co-executive producing.

Lady Gaga's Pre-Fame Apartment: Roaches, "Cocaine Everywhere"

Lady Gaga has offered some insight into what has shaped her into becoming the artist she is today, hinting at past "traumatic events", but refusing to elaborate further for fear her experiences would be "twisted and turned" by the media.

The controversial singer opened up to rock journalist Neil Strauss who has included a snippet of their conversation in his new book Everyone Loves You When You Are Dead, and can bring you an exclusive interview with the author.

"I asked her if she'd been through a traumatic experience when she was younger and she said yes, that it was when she was in New York and it was so terrible that she'd blocked it out," Strauss told

"She said it was so horrible that she didn't want it in her younger fans' heads. I think she felt that if she opened up about herself, then it would define her and that's all anyone would ask about."

30 Rock, The Office, Community and Parks and Rec Getting Hour-Long Special Episodes Soon


For their season finales (and special episodes), NBC is prepping hour-long episodes of 30 Rock, Community, The Office and Parks and Rec. Makes sense! That hour-long Office will be after Steve Carell's sendoff, which will happen four episodes before the finale, but may include the announcement of his successor. It airs on May 19th. And we've already heard a bit about Community's hour-long paintball-themed finale that hits on May 12th.

30 Rock's
hour-long episode will be their 100th, airing on April 19th, and the plot will revolve around "a new corporate boss, a star in hiding, and a mind-altering gas leak may doom TGS, America’s fourth-favorite Friday-night sketch comedy show." As for Parks and Rec, its hour-long finale follows The Office's on May 19th, and there's no word on what that one will be about.

What, Outsourced and Perfect Couples don't get the hour-long treatment?! I, for one, am outraged.

Cherry, who penned the episode, and Sabrina Wind will serve as executive producers. Michael Apted will direct.

Surviving the Supergroup

A so-called supergroup is formed when singer-songwriters from existing groups come together in a new venture, and it's usually a signal that their original ensembles are kaput. Not so with Middle Brother. Taylor Goldsmith, John McCauley and Matt Vasquez remain in their bands Dawes, Deer Tick and Delta Spirit, respectively. They say Middle Brother's self-titled new album, which arrived last week, is a one-off. Further, they see the project as just another way to promote their other groups.

Hallelujah, indeed!

‘s Terry O’Quinn is heading back to ABC in Hallelujah, an hourlong pilot from Desperate Housewives duo Marc Cherry and Sabrina Wind.

The project — billed as a drama with musical elements — is set in the town of Hallelujah, Tenn., which is being torn apart by the forces of good and evil and whose fortunes change when a stranger comes to town, bringing justice, peace and possibly restoring faith.

O’Quinn will play the show’s main villain Del, a charming yet wholly corrupt local millionaire who virtually owns the town. He joins a cast that also includes Law & Order‘s Jesse L. Martin and Cashmere Mafia‘s Frances O’Connor.

The mysterious stranger at the center of the show has not yet been cast.

O’Quinn had been gearing up to reunite with Lost costar Michael Emerson in the J.J. Abrams-produced NBC drama pilot Odd Jobs, but that project has been delayed. Emerson himself recently committed to another gig, the CBS pilot Person of Interest (also produced by Abrams).

American Apparel and CEO Dov Charney are facing a $260 million lawsuit alleging that the executive pressured a former teenage employee into performing sex acts in order to keep her job.

New York City resident Irene Morales, now 20, filed suit yesterday against the hipster retailer in Brooklyn Supreme Court, reports New York's Daily News. Morales charges that Charney, 42, invited her to his New York apartment shortly after her 18th birthday, in 2008, and that he demanded fellatio as soon as she walked in the door. He then allegedly forced her onto the bed and had her repeat the act.

12 Things You Didn’t Know About James Bond

1. Dr. No was not James Bond’s first appearance on the screen

James Bond burst onto the big screen in 1962, in the film Dr. No. However, the spy’s screen debut actually came 8 years earlier in a live broadcast of Casino Royale on CBS television in the U.S. on October 21, 1954, as part of the “Climax Mystery Theater.” The program starred Barring Nelson as Jimmy Bond, Linda Christian as the Bond girl, the legendary Peter Lorre as Le Chiffre, with Michael Pate as Clarence Leiter. In an interesting and absurd nationality twist, “Jimmy Bond” is a CIA agent, and “Clarence Leiter” is Bond’s British ally.

Inside Queen Mimi's Baby Shower


On March 6, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon gathered an intimate group of friends and family at the rooftop Conservatory Grill at the Montage hotel to celebrate the arrival of their twin boy and girl, due in late April or early May.

"I'd never been to a baby shower," Mariah Carey tells the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now. "This was my first one -- it was so festive!"

Festive is an understatement! The shower, hosted by her pr and management team and Angel Champagne's Stefano Zagni, was decorated in pink and blue hues -- from the balloons and flowers to the servers' aprons and the napkins. Guests--including celeb pals American Idol judge Randy Jackson, host Piers Morgan, actress turned director Penny Marshall, Sopranos alum Lorraine Bracco, and director Brett Ratner--noshed on a selection of gourmet pizzas and appetizers and enjoyed Mariah's very own champagne, Angel.

"Nick and I were so grateful to everyone who came to celebrate with us," Mariah tells Life & Style.

A 6-foot-long gift table was filled with tiny outfits, books and stuffed animals but possibly the best gift she was given came from her fans.

"There was a lot of love in the room, and to top it off, fans from more than 50 countries sent well-wishes and stories in a book they made for our twins titled Always Be My Babies, which was the sweetest gesture in the world," Mariah tells Life & Style. "It was a night I will never forget."   source

Jeffrey Donovan lands role as Robert F. Kennedy

Announces it via twitter - while making embarrassing spelling mistakes

I’m huge Burn Notice dork and that’s due in large part to the charisma and versatility of its star, Jeffrey Donovan. With Burn Notice being one of cable’s biggest hits, I’m surprised he hasn’t become a bigger presence in theaters, although that may be due to a number of factors (e.g. scheduling, preference, pay, etc.). He last graced the big screen in a supporting role in Clint Eastwood’s Changeling and now it looks like he’ll be re-teaming with Eastwood for the upcoming J. Edgar Hoover biopic, J. Edgar starring Leonardo DiCarpio.
Although (to the best of our knowledge) the movie is no longer titled “Hoover”, it’s nevertheless exciting that he’ll be a part of the impressive cast. J. Edgar also stars Naomi Watts, Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas, Stephen Root, and Judi Dench. As for Donovan, he’ll return in the new season of Burn Notice, which premieres this summer. He also directed the upcoming Burn Notice spin-off movie, Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe, which airs on USA on April 17th.

RIP Cap'n Crunch

The Soggies have finally won: Cap'n Crunch is quietly sailing into retirement.

Long derided by health experts for its high sugar content – a single serving contains 12 grams – the cereal is no longer being actively marketed by Quaker, DailyFinance reports. It appears parent company Pepsico is forcing the good Cap'n to walk the plank.

Cap'n Crunch was once the No. 1 breakfast cereal, but pressure from the White House and health activists is having an effect on how PepsiCo and other food companies peddle their products to kids. Sales of the cereal were down 6.8 percent in 2010.

Last year, PepsiCo vowed to reduce added sugar per serving by 25 percent and saturated fat by 15 percent in its products over the next 10 years.

"PepsiCo is no longer marketing Cap'n Crunch cereal directly to children. In a sense, you could say that they have retired Cap'n Crunch, and that's a good thing," Jennifer Harris, of the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at Yale University, told DailyFinance. "Unfortunately, children continue to view hundreds of ads per year for high-sugar cereals from General Mills, Kellogg's and Post Foods."

The critics have a point: Children cereals contain 85 percent more sugar, 65 percent less fiber and 60 percent more sodium when compared with adult cereals, according to the Rudd Center research. The average preschooler has viewed more than 500 television ads for such cereals.

The Housewife of Paris

Just because she’s a whirlwind of glamour and work doesn’t mean Salma Hayek won’t cook dinner. Au contraire. The wife of PPR’s François Henri Pinault is every bit the little woman.

Salma Hayek is getting down to business. She has just arrived at our photo shoot in Paris, makeup-free, hair bundled up into a Rasta-like knitted cap, and now she’s sitting next to the photographer on the couch, going through pictures they’re using as reference points. The Xeroxed photos are provocatively sexy — Romy Schneider looking pained and delirious, Catherine Deneuve pulling her camisole down for Helmut Newton, a bare-bottomed model leaning over a fur coat on a balcony — but this seems to bother Hayek not at all. She examines them almost as if she were the producer of the shoot rather than the subject.

There is (as is customary) a slight nervousness in the room about what she will turn out to be like to work with, what she will or won’t agree to. First of all, she apologizes: most of these images are of women with cigarettes dangling from their lips, but she has a rule about not smoking in pictures. Fine; a lit match is decided upon instead. With all eyes on her, she continues to leaf through until she gets to the naked backside. She stops, and briskly slaps the pile of pictures down on her lap.

“O.K.,” she says, keeping an entirely straight face, “what I can do is put a cigarette in my ass. I don’t think that sets a bad example, do you?”

Inevitably, everyone is in stitches, and it’s apparent straightaway that this is Hayek’s gift: she’s funny and rude and can win over all manner of people in record time. Sometimes her laughter, which comes easily, is low and breathy, like a throwback to girlhood, and yet her speech has a grown-up, rugged quality to it, a combination of warmth and skepticism that draws you in quickly — as if to say, before anything is even in question: You and me, we’re not going to fall for any bull, are we?

England's answer to Zombie Boy

A tattoo fanatic has taken his penchant for ink one step further by having his entire face covered in a skull design.

‘Mad Dog’ Deon, 27, loves his new tattoo, however, his girlfriend Catherine was less than impressed with her other half’s new look.
He showed off the artwork, which is his 37th tattoo, during an appearance on the Jeremy Kyle Show, in an episode titled How Could My Boyfriend Destroy His Own Face?

‘I’m slightly struggling as to why anyone would have a skull tattooed on their face,’ Kyle said.

However, Mad Dog was unrepentant, saying: ‘I don’t care what I look like. I am who I am, if people don’t like me for who I am, they can do one. What’s wrong with it? I’m still the same person inside.’

Doom Reboot in 3D? Good excuse for a Karl Urban post in my opinion!

Doom To Be Rebooted In 3D?

According to a new rumor, a reboot film of Id Software's seminal first person shooter Doom may soon be clawing at our faces -- In 3D. The original report from What's Playing didn't have much details, but allegedly, Universal Pictures is interested in resurrecting the film property. Apparently now in early stages of development, the film is said to completely abandon the events depicted in the notoriously-panned 2005 Doom movie, which starred Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Karl Urban. Of course, not that it matters all that much, since Doom was never exactly a property with a fertile and delicate storyline canon around which a writer needed to tip-toe. With the ultra-groundbreaking, never-before-attempted in history medium of 3D [/sarcasm], the question lingers as to whether we should expect a film that attempts to get a bit deeper than its much-maligned predecessor, or will it be another disposable experience?

Matthew Vaughn Says 'X-Men: First Class' Takes 'Batman Begins' Attitude To X-Men Universe

No matter what it turns out to be in the end, it's already clear that "X-Men: First Class" is going to be something unusual. What we've seen so far of the '60s-set origin story for Marvel's premiere mutant super-team has a very different feel compared to other recent comic book adaptations. Director Matthew Vaughn thinks so too. Really, that's the whole point.

"This is going to be very different. What I'm doing no one has done in superhero films. It's James Bond, it's a political thriller and it's an X-Men movie," he told IGN during a set visit.

Vaughn came to the project with an open mind. Let's face it: the direction taken in "X-Men: The Last Stand" was not a particularly welcome one, a fact that he recognized going in.

"It's not like the other X-Men movies which I think is important. I think they need to sort of take on a new... you know, what 'Batman Begins' did for all those Batman movies? We bloody well need it. I'm not saying it's going to be as good as Batman Begins, but it's the same sort of attitude," he said.

IGN also brings word from the set of an action scene they saw being shot (mild spoilers follow).

In the scene, a group of Sebastian Shaw's (Kevin Bacon)men, led by Azazel (Jason Flemyng), beats the crap out of a group of security guards in a government facility's rec room. Also featuring into the scene is a group of young, terrified mutants, including Raven Darkholme/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Angel Salvadore/Angel (Zoe Kravitz), Armando Munoz/Darwin (Edi Gathegi), Alex Summers/Havok (Lucas Till) and Sean Cassidy/Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones).

Nicole Scherzinger Is Trying Hard To Land 'Glee' Guest Spot


Pussycat Dolls star Nicole Scherzinger has instructed her representatives to set up a meeting with the producers of "Glee" because she is determined to land a role in the hit TV show.

The singer is a big fan of the musical series and is keen to follow in the footsteps of other guest stars including, Gwyneth Paltrow and Britney Spears, who have previously appeared on the show.

Scherzinger admits she is pressing hard for the chance to step into Glee and is already making plans for her character.

She tells Britain's Capital FM, "I love Glee and am waiting for my time. I really want to do something on Glee but am always traveling so don't get time to watch it a lot but I try to when I can.

"We're going to set up some meetings and stuff. I would definitely love to do a guest spot on Glee because I came from musical theatre. I want to take on a completely new character, like something kind of dramatic and not what people would expect. To be unrecognizable would be cool."

Ever since Khloe Kardashian married NBA star Lamar Odom in September 2009, she has been ready and eager to become a mom
. But what she thought would be an easy task, hasn’t turned out as well as she hoped. “I’ve always wanted kids,” Khloe, 27, tells Us Weekly. “It takes time, I guess, I don’t know.” A lot of women face fertility frustrations, but there are ways to make it happen!

Khloe is feeling pressure from her family to have a baby

Back in April 2010, Khloe told Us that she and Lamar, 31, had been trying to get pregnant. “If it happens, it happens,” she explained. The problem is, almost a year later, it still hasn’t happened. “I don’t know what the problem is,” she admits, adding that her conception issues are confusing.

Khloe, why are spending thousands on baby gear?

Sometimes, the best thing a couple can do is just keep trying and see if it works. Khloe has it right when she says getting pregnant takes time. Some people have it easy and others don’t, but that doesn’t mean Khloe and Lamar should give up hope!

Mom-to-Be Alyssa Milano's Best Advice Yet: "It's Really Hard to Kill A Baby"


Since Alyssa Milano announced she has a baby on board, she's been fielding tons of advice. But one nugget in particular was especially comforting for the mom-to-be.

"It sounds kind of harsh but a friend of the family recently told me it's really hard to kill a baby," she told reporters at last night's Limitless premiere in NYC, "That made me feel much better!"

All kidding aside, Alyssa said she's comparing parenting crib notes with her costar Halle Berry...

"We had a very nice conversation about being a mother yesterday," she told me of her New Year's Eve castmate—Alyssa and Halle been filming with in the Big Apple, along with Robert De Niro.

And since Alyssa has been busy balancing working with her pregnancy, hubby Dave Bugliari is being especially sweet.

"Yesterday my call was at 5:30 am and the car was picking me up at 4:45 in the morning," she said. "My alarm went off and he got out of bed and went and ran the shower for me."

Sounds like a keeper!

There was obviously no drinking any of the DeLeon tequila flowing freely at the premiere and after party for Alyssa, but she said she's been craving something perfectly healthy so far.

"Broccoli," she confessed of her biggest craving, "I'm so boring!"

Hey, at least eating tons of broccoli will make losing the baby weight a cinch, right?
