Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher Planning To Adopt, Despite Cheating Claims

Hollywood’s hottest couple, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, are desperate for a baby together - and are turning to adoption.

Just five months after they were rocked by cheating allegations, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are pulling out all the stops to adopt a baby together.

“Demi and Ashton have been like newlyweds these past few months,” says an insider. “In the past they’ve made no secret of their desire to have kids… and now they feel the time is right. it’s incredible how their relationship has turned around.”

Last September, the couple were rocked when 21-year-old Britteny Jones claimed she slept with Ashton at his Los Angeles home,while Demi, 48, was away. She also alleged that the couple have an open marriage.

While Demi, and Ashton, 33, angrily refuted Brittney’s story, “the scandal brought them closer,” says a pal. “It made them realise that maybe they had been taking eachother for granted.”

Workaholic Ashton agreed to scale down his involvement in new business ventures, such as his TV production company. “There were nights when he’d end up sleeping on the couch in his office because he was so exhausted from working so late,” says the source.

Now, as the couple put all their efforts into reassessing their relationship, “they started talking about having kids,” says another source.

“Demi’s greatest sadness is that she didn’t marry Ashton years earlier. She’s desperate to have a baby with him, but realises she is probably too old to get pregnant.”

In recent weeks, sources say the couple have been discussing the possibility of adopting or even having a child via surrogate, like Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker.

“Demi is keen on the idea of adoption and so is Ashton, but he is also interested in surrogacy.”

It is not the first time the subject of kids has come cup as Ashton and Demi, who have been married for five years. In February 2009, she tweeted her denial of a report claiming their were planning to adopt. But now, pals say, things are very different.

Demi already has three children from her marriage to actor Bruce Willis - Rumer, 22, Scout, 19, and Tallulah Belle, 17.

In an interview last year the actress gushed: “He [Ashton]‘s a an amazing father to my daughters already so i have no doubt that it would be another incredible part of our journey together.”

Ashton has previously confided that he’s always been interested in adoption.

“I have thought of adopting a child my whole life,” he said. “When i was eight, i had a friend called Terry and one day he told me he was adopted. He said his parents told him there was a special bond between them because they picked him. I though that was pretty profound and i would be open to the idea.”

Now pals are saying the pair could have some baby news sooner rather than later. “If a baby is on the way, you can be sure their relationship will thrive – and they will be amazing parents.”

Eva Longoria planning pink baby shower for Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham may have refused to reveal the sex of her unborn baby but 'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria seems to have a clue as she is planning a pink themed baby shower for the former Spice Girl.

The 'Desperate Housewives' star has been friends with the British fashion designer ever since she moved to Los Angeles from London in 2008 and is organising a baby shower featuring pink balloons, reported People online.

Victoria, 36, who has three sons by footballer husband David, last week insisted she had no idea if she was having a boy or a girl.

Longoria, has now booked LA's Chateau Marmont Hotel for a baby shower in July, when the child is due.

"They know the sex of their baby, which is helpful for Eva, she plans to fill the suite with balloons, and they will be pink, not blue," said a source close to Longoria.

The two friends had earlier starred in a commercial together and often make red carpet appearances arm in arm.

rupert in talks to join war drama.

A Norwegian publication reported that actor Rupert Grint's first foray after the Harry Potter films may be a movie called Comrade, directed by Petter Næss (Mozart and the Whale)(Elling).

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Comrade is an anti-war movie. High above the harsh Norwegian wilderness, English and German pilots shoot each other to the ground after a violent chance encounter. Isolated, they must fight to survive the brutal winter. Though war has made them enemies, antagonism is hard to maintain as days go by. Through mutual need, unlikely friendships bloom. Somehow, they become comrades. War, after all, is absurd.

Culkin tipped to play Assange

American actor Macaulay Culkin, best known for his child roles, has been tipped as a frontrunner to play Julian Assange in an upcoming film about WikiLeaks.

Steven Spielberg has bought the rights to the story of the WikiLeaks saga, the UK's Guardian newspaper reports, and on Thursday it published a list of actors who could take on a film role as the pale-haired Australian.Culkin, 30, along with Orlando Bloom and British actress Tilda Swinton were named as possibilities to play the 39-year-old.

Adding to the obvious jest of the article came the suggestion that the now deceased John Inman (famous for his role as Mr Humphries in Are You Being Served?) be considered for the part.

The book, written by Guardian journalists David Leigh and Luke Harding, charts Assange's life from his itinerant Australian childhood through to the operations of his controversial secret-leaking website.

The text also tells the inside story of Assange's dealings with The Guardian and the release of secret diplomatic cables.

"It's Woodward and Bernstein meets Stieg Larsson meets Jason Bourne," Guardian editor-in-chief said of the film.

"Plus the odd moment of sheer farce and, in Julian Assange, a compelling character who goes beyond what any Hollywood scriptwriter would dare to invent."

The film is one of a number of productions based on WikiLeaks and its eccentric founder, who has applied to register his name in the UK as an entertainment services trademark, preventing unauthorised endorsements of products and services using his name.


The anticipated documentary 'Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest' premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, despite the controversy between the film's director Michael Rapaport and Tribe frontman Q-Tip. Now, the film, has been officially picked up by Sony Pictures for distribution.

Sony Pictures and Rapaport announced the news on Thursday (Mar. 10) in a press release. "I couldn't be more excited and proud that BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE: THE TRAVELS OF A TRIBE CALLED QUEST is being distributed by Sony Pictures Classics," Rapaport said. "As a first time filmmaker to have the support of SPC is like being signed by the NY Yankees. Telling this story was not only a labor of love, but also the most fulfilling accomplishment of my career."

Back in December, shortly after the documentary's trailer appeared online, Q-Tip took to Twitter to announce that he would not "support" the film. The Queens emcee, also one of the flick's producers, explained that he was speaking on behalf of the group, when he said that the film was not yet polished enough for release.

Phife Dawg was the only A Tribe Called Quest member to attend the film's Sundance premiere.

Billy Crystal gets worst plastic surgery award

Readers of this blog have concluded that comedian Billy Crystal, 62, had the worst plastic surgery of any star at last week’s Oscars show.

As I write, he had 41 percent of all votes cast in our unscientific survey, which was included in the blog post “Survey: Who had Oscars’ worst plastic surgery?”

Runner-up was former supermodel Cheryl Tiegs, 63, with 24 percent of the vote.

Next came singer-actress Madonna, 52, with 15 percent, and actress Sharon Stone, 52, with 11 percent.

To my eye, Crystal’s face looks like someone who is about to turn 63 in a few weeks, has put on a bit of weight, and perhaps has had some injections of filler.

But readers of “In Your Face” picked him for this blog’s uncoveted Worst Plastic Surgery award.

Actress Sandra Bullock, now 46, was the winner of last year’s survey, with 28 percent, but apparently has eased up on the Botox since then. This year she was chosen by only 5 percent of readers. {source}

The CW’s zombie pilot Awakening just came to life in a big way: The formidable Titus Welliver has joined the cast!

Conan in the Wilderness


WHEN darkness falls on Building 34 here at the Warner Brothers lot, the home of the TBS late-night show “Conan,” a repose sets in as the fake palm trees and oversize Angry Birds props are put away for the night, and the show’s namesake host unwinds in his dimly lighted office, decorated with career memorabilia, vintage guitars and a bust of Teddy Roosevelt.

But when a dark mood hits Conan O’Brien, he says he ceases to be the talkative, excitable joke teller seen on television and becomes a cutting, sarcastic person his co-workers call “Mean Conan.”

“I’m really hard on myself,” Mr. O’Brien said, describing this persona in an interview on Wednesday. “I tease people constantly. I physically fight my writers, and they fight me back.”

Mr. O’Brien said his staff members regarded Mean Conan as “the funniest Conan, which is weird.” But he added, “Might as well let people know he exists.”

There is enough Mean Conan — not to mention Cranky Conan, Exhausted Conan and Vulnerable Conan — to go around in “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop,” a documentary directed by Rodman Flender that will make its debut Sunday at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Tex.

Forbes Five Wealthiest Rappers: Not Businessmen But Rather Businesses, Man!

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has had quite a career thus far. Since debuting in 1996 with hip-hop classic Reasonable Doubt, he has sold over 50 million records worldwide. He’s parlayed his musical success into lucrative businesses in the realms of fashion, cuisine and advertising (for more, check out my new Jay-Z book, which hits stores next week). Last year he earned $63 million, tops among hip-hop artists for the third time in four years.

But when it comes to net worth, Jay-Z is number two. The top spot goes to Sean “Diddy” Combs, who tops our accounting of rap’s richest with a fortune of $475 million, fueled by his interests in Sean John clothing, Bad Boy Worldwide record label and, most significantly, his Diageo joint-venture vodka brand Ciroc. Jay-Z ranks a close second, with $450 million.

Joel Madden Yells at Nicole Richie for Buying $3,000 Pillows


Not all "pillow talk" is sexy and romantic. On Monday, Joel Madden had a quiet hissy fit over a recent purchase made by Nicole Richie, his fashionista wife: $3,000 worth of pillows.

"Do you ever look at your credit card bill and ask your wife how the hell she could spend 3 thousand dollars on pillows? I do. PILLOWS," the Good Charlotte singer, 31, tweeted.

Fashion and jewelry designer (and the Beverly Hills-bred daughter of Lionel Richie) Richie, 29, whom he married last December, had a simple retort: "That's why I ignore your calls," she tweeted. Continued Madden: "I mean, can't we just go to Target and get our pillows??? [Shaking My Head]."

But Madden (who's father to her daughter Harlow, 3, and son Sparrow, 19 months) claimed he won this battle.

"Needless to say, the pillows are going back to the expensive ass pillow store. Hope she likes the Target pillows I'm putting in their place!...Trust me the pillows were gone before i even tweeted!"

When a pal asked how a pillow could cost so much, Madden joked, "I was thinking they must be made from unicorn manes or some s***."

Not everybody was on his side, the rocker said. "Now i'm getting attacked by angry kids on Twitter, LOL!"


I feel so stupid posting something like this with what's happening in Japan...

What was your most extragavant purchase, ONTD?

8.9 magnitude earthquake hits Japan

Tokyo (CNN) -- An 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit northern Japan on Friday, triggering tsunamis and sending a massive body of water filled with debris that included boats and houses inching toward highways.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

The epicenter was 373 kilometers (231 miles) away from the capital, Tokyo, the United States Geological Survey said. But residents there felt the tremors.

The quake rattled buildings and toppled cars off bridges and into waters underneath. Waves of debris flowed like lava across farmland, pushing boats, houses and trailers toward highways.

In Tokyo, crowds gathered in the streets and tried to reach relatives via cell phone.

( "Based on all available data a tsunami may have been generated by this earthquake that could be destructive on coastal areas even far from the epicenter." )

- Japan has been hit by 2 tsunami waves so far
- 1 confirmed death, many more feared
- 6 massive fires in the city of Tokyo, one of them is an oil refinery

Sofia and Ty filming "Modern Family"

Sofia Vergara and Ty Burrell are spotted filming their hit comedy series Modern Family in Glendale earlier this week (Mar. 9). Sofia’s looking stunning as usual – like she did on Tuesday – and Ty is looking pretty handsome himself I might add. In between takes, Sofia enjoyed herself some Pinkberry frozen yogurt.

Speaking of Ty, he recently chatted with the Herald Sun about Modern Family. The goofy TV dad had some pretty interesting things to say about the kids on the show:

“No, I don’t feel bad [about the way Phil talks to the kids on the show]. I think it’s just funny. I think that the audience know that these people really love their kids … One of the most fascinating things is the differences between Rico (Rodriguez, who plays Manny Delgado), and Nolan (Gould, who plays his son Luke Dunphy) and their characters. Rico is the opposite of his character – a total kid at heart. Nolan is a genius.”

Luke is a genius? Who knew!

Ian Somerhalder On His Dream Season Finale

While we're weeks away from the next episode of "The Vampire Diaries," we're even further away from seeing how another action-packed, lust-filled season will come to an end. When we caught up with the always-hot Ian Somerhalder earlier this week, he admitted even he has no idea how the season will wrap up.

"We have 29 days [left in shooting]. I'm just curious as to what the hell is going to happen," he told us on Monday at Cosmopolitan magazine's 2011 Fun Fearless Males party."I'm excited how we're gonna [end it]. Season one was such a great journey. It took us all for a ride. I'm excited to see what happens. I'm excited to see it because it's not as if you read a film and you've got the definite answer. I don't know anything, which is kind of like life."

 Okay...Then we ventured to get Mr. Smolderhotter to weigh in on what he'd like to see happen if he were in charge of writing the rest of the season. "What I would like to see is, is I would like to see Damon kidnap Elena and then go to the Caribbean. Go to Paris first, then they go looking for her and then they disappear to the Caribbean for a season or something, while everyone frantically searches for them."

So, would things get sexy? "Why not?" Ian added.

Why not indeed! Count us in for that wild, sexy ride then!


Unfollow @CharlieSheen on Twitter Day!

Even though America loves a shitshow, and has every right to do so, we think this particular shitshow has gone on too long. Watching Charlie Sheen flame out again has been amusing, in part, but, much like his porn stars, we've taken to hiding in the bathroom and cringing. That is to say, we've come to desire a rapid end of our time with him for a number of reasons. Among his crimes:

* Repeated violence to women (he shot one, he threatened to behead another, and then there are the porn stars. Oh, the porn stars.)
* Spelling "corner" with a "k."
* Insulting Thomas Jefferson. Repeatedly.
* Certain men are now using him as a role model. This is not good.
* We're tired of #tigerblood and #winning. Really tired.
* Thinking about him and his porn star coterie is gross.
* He has kids. Come on.
* We have made him even more full of himself.
* It's not even Charlie Sheen tweeting, anyway.

Yes, watching him is akin watching a trainwreck, and it's hard to pull yourself away from the spectacle. So, fine, keep watching him, preferably in clips from Men at Work and Major League. But the man has 2 million Twitter followers. Isn't enough enough? Can't we all just commit to the itsy bitsy task of unfollowing him? We did. It felt...good. We're pretty sure we won't miss it.

Collapse )

Thus, we propose to make this Friday, March 11, Worldwide Unfollow Charlie Sheen on Twitter Day. Think of the message we will send! Power to the people. If Charlie Sheen loses even 5 followers, well, that's 5 followers who won't retweet him. And if we don't care what Charlie Sheen is doing, we will stop talking about him and talk about something else. Anything else. If no one can hear a bitchin' rockstar tweet, does anyone care? Ask yourself that, and then hit "unfollow." It's so easy.

Hey, some people didn't write about Sarah Palin for a month. That's what we call sacrifice. You can at least do this little bit to help humanity.

Also: Apparently it was the best month of their lives.


That's So Raven talks SNL's Disney School of Acting

Raven-Symone became the latest lampooned star on "Saturday Night Live" last weekend thanks to Keenan Thompson and some very bright clothes in a hilarious faux-commercial for the Disney Channel Acting School. PopWrap caught up with her at the ABC Family Upfront party

PopWrap: So I know you saw the Miley Cyrus/"SNL" sketch -- thoughts?
Raven-Symone: They shoulda asked me to play me! I was here in New York! I’ve been wanting to do ‘"SNL" forever – I’m kinda mad I haven’t yet.

PW: Do schools like that actually exist?
Raven-Symone: Yes there is a school. It’s not a real place but unofficially, yes. I have to say, I have a lot of college friends who come home at three o’clock in the morning after a night of, um, Pineapple Express-ing. They watch The Disney Channel and love it, but still make fun of it. Don’t get it twisted kids, when you were 13, that’s how you acted … it just didn’t help that I was 20-years-old doing that [laughs].

Tarsem's 'Immortals' Getting First Look at WonderCon

If all the Green Lantern goodness doesn’t convince you to go WonderCon, maybe this will:

Immortals, the Tarsem Singh-directed Greek god epic from Relativity, will have its first-look at the San Francisco event, which runs April 1 to 3.

Also there will be some of the cast, including Henry Cavill, the British actor recently cast as Superman. Also on tap are Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz and Isabel Lucas. Singh will be there as will the producers, Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton.

Details are still being worked but April 2 will be the day footage will be shown and the cast does a panel.

In case you’re wondering what Immortals is all about, here’s the synopsis:

The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission.

As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion’s raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man’s future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final desperate battle for the future of humanity.

The movie is slated to open Nov. 11

Full 'Super 8' Trailer

After several months of waiting in the dark with only a few brief glimpses at the bigger picture, Paramount Pictures has finally unveiled the first full-length trailer for "Super 8," director J.J. Abrams and producer Steven Spielberg's mysterious summer throwback movie.

What was already one of the most secretive projects of the entire summer movie season is finally becoming a little bit clearer -- though, thankfully, not too clear -- as we finally have our first good look at what Abrams has in store for us when the Amblin homage arrives in theater this June.

In addition to releasing the trailer, Paramount has unveiled a detailed plot synopsis for "Super 8," confirming some previously rumored but unofficial story elements for the very first time:

"In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth – something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined."

We'll be back soon with more analysis and reactions to the "Super 8" trailer, so keep checking back throughout the day!

Rating For Freida Pinto's Miral Goes From R To PG-13


The kids can see "Miral" after all.

Julian Schnabel's historical piece about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict has had its rating downgraded from an R to a PG-13 after an appeal from distributor the Weinstein Co.

A person familiar with the appeal who was not authorized to speak about it said the debate turned on an early moment in the film when a middle-aged man assaults a young girl at her home; the assault is strongly implied but occurs out of the frame of the movie. It's a dramatically important scene, setting in motion a critical chain of events for one of the main characters.

In announcing the decision Thursday afternoon, the Motion Picture Assn. of America said that the movie would now be given the PG-13 for “thematic material, and some violent content including a sexual assault.”

Based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the Palestinian journalist Rula Jebreal, who grew up in the orphanage,"Miral" is not expected to cater to a teenage audience, though the ratings decision does remove the stigma that can come with an R.

Schnabel, however, said that he thought young people would see and respond to the movie. "Teenagers are the intended audience for Miral’s story," he said in a statement. "I am very happy the MPAA proved to be open minded and ultimately agreed.”

Schnabel's movie, his first since he was nominated for an Oscar for "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," concerns the journey of a Palestinian woman who runs an orphanage in Jerusalem's Old City as well as the lives of some of her wards, including the title character (played at one stage of her life by Freida Pinto). The movie, which premiered at the Venice and Toronto films festivals to mixed reviews, opens commercially on March 25.

The overturn marks the second time Harvey Weinstein has won in front of the MPAA appeals board in recent months. In December, he succeeded in getting the board to give the romantic drama "Blue Valentine" an R instead of an NC-17.

It's the group's first overturn of the new year; earlier, David Schwimmer's "Trust" saw its R upheld on appeal. The appeals board comprises industry members and other Hollywood professionals, a different group than the parent-centric body that hands out the initial ratings.


Asin Says No to Rajini's Raana Without Reasons


Acting opposite to the celebrated superstar Rajinikanth is a dream for all actresses. Asin Thottumgal, the South Indian beauty turned to be different when she rejected a role in Rajini’s much awaited movie ‘Raana’ without stating any reasons.

Raana is a trilingual project in which the super star will appear in triple roles, 3 different ages of a man. Yesteryear bollywood heroine Rekha will play opposite to old age Rajini and Deepika Padukone will appear opposite to young Rajini.

K S Ravikumar, director of Raana approached Asin for being the heroine of middle aged Rajini and she refused the offer. The team was in search of a bold face, who can impress the audience of North and South alike. Finally the director approached another Kerala origin actress Vidya Balan for the role and she accepted it wholeheartedly.

Asin recently attained media attention, when she ate an insect at the sets of ‘Ready’ in Thailand, when she was asked to do so by her co star Salman Khan. Salman was joking and thought she would scream and run seeing the insect. But she crushed and swallowed the beetle, which was an edible food of Thailand. The beauty from Kochi also plans to join the group of bikini babes of bollywood, as she will appear in swim suit in her upcoming movie ‘Houseful 2’. Asin nowadays concentrating in bollywood only and that may be the reason for her big ‘no’ to such a big South Indian project like ‘Raana’.


NextMovie's Exclusive Q&A With Mia Wasikowska

You probably recognize Mia Wasikowska from her adventures in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland." Perhaps you first spotted the ethereal doe-eyed young actress in the WWII film "Defiance." Maybe you didn't see "The Kids Are All Right," but heard she was pretty good in it.

Well, after "Jane Eyre" opens, you should learn to pronounce the last name of this 21-year-old Aussie. Repeat after us: "Vash-i-kov-ska."

According to Mia, she'd read Charlotte Bronte's classic tale and actively sought out the plum role in Cary Fukunaga's gothic remake. Mia, as the "poor, obscure, plain and little" Jane, steals scenes from costars Judi Dench, Jamie Bell and Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester. No small feats.

The emerging star sat down with NextMovie to tell us all about her airtime in "Eyre."

Now let's try that last name again."Vash-i-kov-ska."

my former fwb's doppelganger is engaged

The Canadian Press

Date: Friday Mar. 11, 2011 7:50 AM ET

OTTAWA — Canadian actors Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill are engaged.

Baruchel dropped the news while accepting a fan choice prize at the televised Genie Awards, throwing out a big thank you to his mom and his "fiancee, Alison."

Later backstage, "The Trotsky" star said he gave Pill a 180-year-old Victorian wedding band for Christmas.

He says it was initially intended to simply be a holiday surprise but it turned into something much more.

"I was just going to give her a nice gift and don't-dump-me-anytime-soon kind of present for Christmas," Baruchel explained.

"I gave it to her and I think I decided in that moment that I might as well call a spade a spade. I'm pretty sure my words were: '(Screw) it, do you want to marry me?' To which she said, 'Yes, of course.' "

Baruchel said the wedding is slated to take place in September 2012.

The celebrity couple have been together less than a year.

In January, Baruchel said he and the 25-year-old Pill began dating on the Winnipeg set of the upcoming hockey movie, "Goon," a few months earlier.

Gossip Cop: Rihanna and Colin Farrell


HollywoodLife has fallen in love again – with a completely random rumor that raises eyebrows at less gullible outlets.

Under the headline, “Colin Farrell & Rihanna Getting Serious,” the site spreads a report that the two stars have “fallen hard for one another and it’s moving quickly.”

Supposedly, the two stars “really hit it off” after meeting on “The Graham Norton Show” back in December, and now Rihanna will reportedly fly from her Australian tour leg to Los Angeles to meet Farrell’s children this weekend.

“Wow, didn’t it seem like just yesterday she was dating baseball player Matt Kemp and then linked to Drake?” marvels HollywoodLife. “This girl doesn’t waste any time!”

Uh huh.

And HollywoodLife doesn’t “waste any time” either… with annoyances like checking facts, seeing if a story passes the smell test, or looking for any kind of evidence that the two stars have been dating at all – let alone “getting serious.”

Three weeks ago, Gossip Cop busted a false report, claiming Rihanna and Farrell were sexting each other.

Still, we still checked out this latest tale, and a source close to Farrell assures us that HollywoodLife’s story is entirely “not true.”

Kate Bush releases an unusual new album “Director’s Cut” on May 16 on her own label Fish People, in conjunction with EMI.

On “Directors Cut” Kate revisits a selection of tracks from her albums “The Sensual World” and “The Red Shoes”, a process that presents a fascinating portrait of an artist in a constant state of evolution. She has re-recorded some elements whilst keeping the best musical performances of each song – making it something of a director’s cut but in sound, not vision.

A new version of “Deeper Understanding” will be released as a single in April. Although written some twenty years ago, the song may be more relevant today than ever…

Kate is currently working on new material although no release date has been set for this.

“Director’s Cut” will be released in the following formats:

  • Digital Album, Standard CD in a case-bound book, Deluxe CD (three disc package, including Director’s Cut, The Sensual Word and re-mastered The Red Shoes) in a case-bound book and two-disc vinyl.

Fuck Him (He's a DJ)

Ke$ha attended a Rihanna concert in Melbourne this week... but witnesses say she wasn't exactly singing along to "S&M" or any other hit singles.

The eccentric singer was spotted in the front row of the event, "all over" Scottish artist Calvin Harris, according to onlookers. One told The Melbourne Herald Sun:

"They were getting right into it. They were practically fornicating."

The burgeoning couple left the show early together, sources say, as "they were all over each other and didn't care who was watching. Ke$ha is a bit of an animal, but Calvin reckons he can handle her."

His subesquent Tweet the next day implied as much: "2nd Melbourne show with Rihanna went great! Lots of people in town for Future festival too so was a fun night!"

10 Most Recognizable Movie Villains

A movie that gives us a hero that everyone loves is a good movie. But a movie that gives us a villain who is remembered for generations is even better. The following are baddies that have been resurrected Halloween after Halloween. They are the stuff that our nightmares are made of. They are the characters that we are terrified to meet in a strange hotel or a galaxy far far away. But for some of us, these are inspirations; characters that we wish we could be. We hope, though, that emulating these villains only go as far as dressing up as them for Halloween.

TLC is keenly aware that they have a hit on their hands with their polygamy themed reality show Sister Wives. The unceasingly energetic Kody Brown and his now four better fifths, Meri, Jenelle, Christine and Robyn and their 16 children have opened up their lives to America for a taste of a very unique and different lifestyle than what most of us are used to. The Brown’s have recently been hitting the interview circuit hard leading up to the season 2 premiere this Sunday.

All of this promotin’ is fine and dandy but it looks like the team over at TLC is looking to latch on to the social media craze with one of the oddest reality TV supplemental campaigns I’ve ever seen. They have created a Facebook app called “Want A Sister Wife?” that allows you to:

Select a friend, invite them to be your sister wife and assign them a task.

Of course I had to try this out so I signed up, sent an invite to a hot wife of one of my best friends and assigned the task of giving me a… Wait I guess that isn’t what the application is for but the concept is a bit confusing don’t you think!?! 

When you sign up it lets you select a sister wife from your list of Facebook friends and supplies the following list of assignable tasks:

Do the dishes - Prepare dinner - Do laundry - Go grocery shopping - Watch sports with my husband
Re-fill my wine - Pack school lunches - Call my mother-in-law - Workout for me
Massage my husband’s back - Be pregnant for me - Let me sleep in - Watch Sister Wives with me

Mr. Brainwash Sued.

Los Angeles street artist Thierry Guetta rose to prominence recently in the Oscar-nominated documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop," in which he is featured at length along with the artist known as Banksy. Now Guetta is facing the downside of fame in an unrelated lawsuit in which he is accused of copyright infringement.

Guetta -- who goes by the moniker Mr. Brainwash -- is being accused of improperly using a photograph of the rap group Run-DMC in various works of art. The photographer, Glen Friedman, is suing Guetta in Los Angeles for copyright infringement and is seeking unspecified damages. Friedman, based in New York, is a prominent photographer who has focused on music groups and skateboarder culture throughout his career.

Bristol Palin's new boyfriend is a keeper

He supports homophobic websites, mocks people with Down's Syndrome and has ridiculed her mother's reality show - but Bristol Palin's new boyfriend has somehow won over her family.

Giancinto 'Gino' Paoletti, 20, who, like the Palins, is also from Wasilla, Alaska, has been dating the mother-of-one for just a couple of months, though the couple say they have been friends for a long time.

In an interview last month, Miss Palin, also 20, called him 'a good guy, a family guy, and a Christian', that her parents 'like a lot'.

But according to Mr Paoletti's Facebook page, the Refrigeration Unlimited worker is not the golden boy his new girlfriend seems to think he is.

The online profile reveals that he is a fan of the homophobic 'Twilight is gay' page, and discusses whether or not he would have sex with a girl who was '250 and has down sindrome [sic].'

His conversations on the social networking site see him refer to people as 'n****' and even ridiculed Sarah Palin's reality show, calling it 'Idiot's of Alaska [sic]'.

In response to this post, which had the May 24th DVD release announcement of Passion Play: The release date is still set, but the film will have a brief theatrical run beforehand-- in other words, it's not going direct to video.

Image currently plans to release the film to platform locations on May 6th. The Toronto pickup, a noirish thriller starring Mickey Rourke, Bill Murray and Megan Fox and written and directed by Mitch Glazer, begins its platform rollout in New York and Los Angeles. That's a little less than two months before the rollout of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which Fox fell out of, a move that essentially reduced her opening-weekend screen count from 8000 to 2.

LAURA’S LOVE ADVICE: How to Avoid Breaking Hearts If You’re In The Middle Of A Love Triangle Like Olivia Wilde

Olivia may have left her husband, Tao Ruspoli, for Ryan Gosling. Here’s how to escape from a love triangle as unscathed as possible

The end of a love affair is horrible, especially so if you’re married. However, the demise of your relationship is much, much worse if there’s another man involved, such as is Olivia Wilde’s situation. It’s now being reported that the Tron star may have left her husband, Tao Ruspoli, for Blue Valentine star Ryan Gosling. If that’s true, here’s how Olivia should have handled her devastating love triangle.

The end of Olivia’s marriage was announced on Feb. 8, but she was reportedly flirting with Ryan as far back as the Golden Globe Awards in January; the two are now, one month after her split, supposedly getting close in a city far from home, Cincinnati. Is Olivia making some bad choices here?

Child Abuse, IMO

Actress, Minnie Driver, puts son on leash

Actress Minnie Driver, 41, was spotted at the airport the other day with her son, Henry, 3, on a leash. Yes, a leash! These “child-harnesses” are specially-made to fasten around the torso of a toddler so a mother can keep the child from wandering away, or to protect them from getting snatched by a child molester. So is this whole concept super-smart—or kinda creepy??

Yes, toddlers are prone to wandering away from their mothers. But the hope is that most mothers of toddlers are so focused on their child that this wouldn’t be an issue! That’s what I thought, at least, until I was the mother of a toddler myself! I’d always thought these “child-leashes” were just wrong, but then I lost sight of my newly-walking son for just one second in a mall and that was the first time I ever thought of getting one of these things. I didn’t buy one in the end—I just could treat my son this much like a dog! But what do you think?

Gwen Stefani’s Wedding Dress Finds a New Home at a Museum!

Most women’s wedding dresses end up in an attic, or perhaps tucked under a bed — but Gwen Stefani is not your typical bride. The singer and fashion designer tells Elle U.K. that her one-of-a-kind Christian Dior gown, created by embattled designer John Galliano, is heading to a permanent home in the Victoria and Albert Design Museum in London. “I didn’t wanna send it because I was scared it would get ruined. But it’s a work of art, it needed to be seen,” she tells the magazine. Stefani, who married rocker Gavin Rossdale in London in 2002, says Galliano made her wedding day dreams come true. “When I got engaged and someone told me that John said he would make my dress, I was like really?” she recalls. “I said I wanted it to be over the top, but not traditional — I wanted it to be everything. But how do you tell this genius over the phone?” Luckily, the designer listened to her wishes. “He was, like, OK, and sent me these drawings of this unbelievable, perfect dress.”


Gemma for G-Star.

She's regularly seen in the front row at fashion shows, and is courted by all the top designers. So it is surprising that Gemma Arterton's campaign for G-Star Raw is her first.

But it has been worth the wait, as the actress, 25, looks every inch the star in behind-the-scenes photographs from the denim brand's latest shoot.

This is what we know as of now. Discussions for "XF3" are happening. Nobody will go on the record as of now. But as we told a few months ago David D, Gillian, and Chris Carter are on board and a script is in the works. This is good news! THE STUDIO HAS NOT SAID NO to "XF3". Trust me that is even better news.

Yes, you read that right. They did just say that a script for XF3 is in the works. No news from anyone else at this point, but this is all very good news! Maybe the Truth isn't so far out there anymore...

Update: In another post, Fox All Access states "
Rumors have late 2012-2013 it depends on the budget keeping the cost of the film down XF2 made its money back and more worldwide and talks continue...keep up the fight for XF3."

And in a post to a fan, Fox All Access writes, "
Honestly where there is smoke there is fire... Trust me when we are seeing Blade Runner Prequels, a remake of Total Recall and more, I don't think FOX FILM will let X-Files just sit and gather dust. It's way to valuable just to sit there."

The five most pathetic female film characters of all time

Last night I had the stinky displeasure of watching Catherine Hardwicke's Red Riding Hood, a movie that has been hailed as the vanguard of a wave of Hollywood movies to appropriate European folktales.

The movie pits the lovely Amanda Seyfried (nubility personified/human Keane painting/tube of lip gloss made flesh) against an angry, magic, sexually charged man-wolf. After the wolf kills her sister and makes it clear he's coming for her next (wolf telepathy is involved – don't ask questions), Seyfried's reaction is to… stand there. Wait to be rescued. Weep. Stand there some more. Quiver under the male gaze. Reapply lip gloss. Repeat. Oh, and sometimes she strides from one place to another place wearing a billowy cloak. She's so useless, in fact, that the film doesn't even let her use her feminine wiles or her sexuality as a weapon! It's just boring, old-timey, textbook damsel-in-distress.

It got me thinking about all the other most-standy-there female movie characters that have been bugging the shit out of me since the beginning of time.

First Images from Steven Spielberg’s 'War Horse'

While it could be nice to say it’s too early to consider any movie as a leading contender in the 2011 Oscar race, I’m pretty sure a Steven Spielberg war movie automatically gets printed on every ballot. Spielberg’s adaptation of the World War I drama War Horse centers on Joey, a farm horse that’s sold to the military and sent to the front lines. With the brutality of the first great war as a backdrop, Joey struggles to make his way home to the farmer’s son, Albert (played by newcomer Jeremy Irvine). DreamWorks has released the first official image from the film and while it doesn’t feature Albert or Joey, it does show off co-stars (from left-to-right in the image above) Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock), Patrick Kennedy (Atonement), and Tom Hiddleston (Thor).

Hit the jump to check out the full image along with quotes from Irvine on the film’s production. The film’s impressive cast of British thespians also includes Emily Watson, Toby Kebbell, David Thewlis, Eddie Marsan, and Peter Mullan. War Horse opens December 28th.

Eddie Cibrian Gets the Lead in NBC's 'Playboy' Pilot


Former CSI: Miami star Eddie Cibrian will replace Jeff Hephner as the star in the NBC pilot Playboy.

The project, from 20th Century Fox TV, Imagine TV and writer-executive producer Chad Hodge, centers on a Chicago attorney who is also a Keyholder at the glamorous, exclusive Playboy Club.
Cibrian, whose previous TV credits include Third Watch and Chase, joins a cast that already includes Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Leah Renee and Wes Ramsey.
The decision to replace Hephner, a relative unknown who costars in the CW freshman drama Hellcats, comes at the 11th hour. The pilot, directed by Alan Taylor, is scheduled to begin production next week in Chicago. Cibrian was one of many actors who tested for the part after Broadway star Patrick Wilson passed. Wilson has since taken the lead in CBS’s untitled medical drama from Erin Brokovich writer Susannah Grant. 
One source said that while the producers liked Hephner, the network wanted a more recognizable “name.”

Aretha Franklin: I didn't have gastric bypass

Surgery helped Aretha Franklin lose 85 lbs. -- just not that surgery.

That's the story the Queen of Soul's sticking to as she once again shoots down rumors about her health, this time the theory that she underwent gastric bypass surgery to drop weight.

"Definitely not -- and would not," Franklin, 68, tells Access Hollywood in a two-part interview to air Monday and Tuesday. "I heard that [rumor]. I said, 'That is crazy.' "

Since undergoing a mysterious surgical procedure in December for reasons she refuses to reveal, Franklin's health and weight loss have been much-buzzed-about topics. In January, she said she was "not going to even deal with" rumors that she had pancreatic cancer.

She did, however, offer a small clue about that surgery, saying that the weight came off "from the surgery that I had," although she did not specify the procedure.

"But it definitely was not the bariatric or, what is it, gastric by- -- Yeah, I can't even tell you the correct name of it," she says, adding, "It's really not necessary to talk about one's personal medical [health]."

Last week, Franklin told Wendy Williams that she ditched fatty foods to drop the weight.

Rumors aside, Franklin says it's not just about being lighter, but feeling lighter and having "more energy."

"The doctor did say to me, he said, 'Mrs. Franklin, you are going to feel better than you have felt maybe in 10 or 15 years,' " she says. " 'The surgery that you had is going to add 15 years to your life.' "

She's been doing a lot of interviews over her weight loss

Charlie Sheen: Who Called the Police?


It wasn't a 5150 last night at Charlie Sheen's house, but the police raid may have been an attempt by his family to help the embattled sitcom star.

While the LAPD refuse to identify who called them...

A source tells me that the call may have come from a family member.

While Sheen apparently hasn't spoken to his father, Martin, or brother Emilio Estevez in weeks, the source said immediate family members "were hoping Charlie would have been arrested."

Although some reports claim the police were called because Sheen was threatening to hurt himself with a gun, a spokesperson for the LAPD insisted to E! News that they were only there because of a possible violation of a restraining order.

I'm told Sheen's family continues to look for legal ways to intervene. "They don't know what to do," the source said. "He won't talk to anyone."

As Sheen himself has made clear, he's still in contact with ex-wife Denise Richards.

However, I'm told, Sheen and Richards are still at odds about daughter Sam's seventh birthday party this weekend. Sheen has unsuccessfully tried to convince Richards to throw the bash at his place.

"He just wants a photo op," the source said. "Denise said their daughters aren't going anywhere near that place."

The 22-year-old showed that she hasn't let success change her one bit when she popped out to the shops near her London home with her hair still wet from the shower - risking a Cold Shoulder.

The Tottenham-born star is also set to spend her fourth week at the top of both the UK singles with Someone Like You and album charts with 21 this weekend - but writing on her official blog this week, the star said she remained flabbergasted at how her career had taken off.

In the sci-fi action-thriller Battle: Los Angeles, the possibility of UFOs landing on Earth becomes a terrifying reality when the world is attacked by unknown forces. When Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind, a battle arises between the aliens and a platoon of Marines, led by Second Lieutenant William Martinez (Ramon Rodriguez) and with veteran Staff Sergeant Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart), who was on the brink of retirement before being called back into service. This group quickly becomes a family, as they take on an enemy unlike anything they’ve ever encountered before and search for a way to defend their lives and their loved ones.

At the film’s press day, actor Aaron Eckhart talked about his desire to do a war movie, breaking his arm during a stunt, how he’s had his own UFO experience, and how he enjoyed playing the hero. He also talked about how much he enjoyed working with Johnny Depp on The Rum Diary. Check out what he had to say after the jump:

THE SCIENCE OF COOL Films This Summer With Mischa Barton, Willa Holland, Steve Guttenberg, More

Humanistic Films has announced a summer 2011 start date for the high school movie The Science of Cool.  Steve Guttenberg, Kiowa Gordon (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), and Eden Sher (The Middle) have joined the cast, which includes The O.C. co-stars Mischa Barton and Willa Holland, Drew Van Acker (Tower Prep), Guy Kent (The Day the Music Died), Matt Dallas (Kyle XY), and Rumer Willis (Sorority Row).  The plot centers on “two high school nerds who discover a secret chemical formula when a science experiment goes terribly wrong that transforms them into the coolest kids in school; but with greatness comes great consequences.”

The film has been in development for a few years now — Eric and Patricia Goren first wrote the script in 2008.  At one point Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) and Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights) were attached, but sadly both dropped out due to prior commitments.  William Zabka is on board to direct.

'True Blood's' Deborah Ann Woll likes the idea of Bill needing Jessica


Bill's deception of Sookie in Season 3 of HBO's "True Blood" has already made things difficult for the vampire. Add to that the possibility that Sookie will tend to an amnesia-stricken Eric and Bill doesn't have many people in his corner.

Last season, Bill tried to release his progeny from her duties to him as her maker, but Deborah Ann Woll tells us that may not have stuck.

The Most Hated Pixar Movie Post...

Extended Trailer for CARS 2 Plus New Retro Posters

Disney has released another trailer for Cars 2 and it’s a lot better than yesterday’s as it focuses on Michael Caine’s character who is a British spy named Finn McMissile.  While I’m not the biggest fan of the first Cars, I understand why Pixar and Disney have made the sequel: money.  From what I understand, the first Cars has generated huge money for the studios as it’s the most successful Pixar movie in terms of merchandising.  When you generate that kind of cash, you make a sequel.  The fact is, while a lot of us might not be on board with the need for a Cars 2, having a lot of extra money in the bank might lead Pixar to take a chance on a more risky film down the road.  What I’m saying is, don’t be too hard on them.

Hit the jump to check out the new trailer and some cool retro posters.  Cars 2 gets released June 24 and it features the voices of Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Caine, Tony Shalhoub, Emily Mortimer and more.

Mila Kunis 'did 1,200 calorie Black Swan diet'


Mila Kunis has confessed that her diet was restricted to 1,200 calories per day while filming Black Swan.

The actress - who shrunk down to 95lbs for her role as a ballet dancer in the film - revealed that she was in "hell" during filming and only ate foods that fit in her hand, reports the Daily Star.

"I was on a five meal-a-day diet of 1,200 calories. I could eat anything that fit into the palm of my hand. That's it," she recalled.

"It was hell but I wouldn't trade it for the world... How often can you lose 20 pounds, get en pointe and work with brilliant people?"

Kunis previously said that she enjoyed shedding 20 lbs for the movie.


This seems like old news but I think this is the first time she's come out and said the whole palm of the hand thing.

Kid Rock and the Angel of Freaking Death (aka Trace Adkins) talk Justin Bieber

Kid Rock was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight', where Morgan offered up the subject of Justin Bieber, in what seemed like a ploy to get the outspoken Rock to trash the teen sensation.

Rock did nothing of the sort, instead saying Bieber was "a nice enough kid" and that he'd heard Bieber "is kind of talented." He also shared an anecdote about a conversation he had with the 16-year-old when they met recently:

"I just met that kid at the American Music Awards, and he said 'Hey, Kid Rock what's up.' I was like 'Hey Justin Bieber, what's up buddy.' He said 'Man, I got your old tour bus,' and I was like 'Really, I hope you got it sanitized."

"I don't know if he quite understood what I was talking about," the hard-partying rocker told Morgan.Collapse )
