Def Leppard Guitarist Phil Collen: "Everyone’s still copying Britney Spears"



Rock legend Phil Collen recognising the huge influence Britney has made in todays music scene.

When you hear today’s bands, what kind of legacy stamp can you hear that has transferred from Def Leppard’s music to the music of today?

When anyone has a big album, everyone copies it, whether it’s Nirvana, Def Leppard, Lady Gaga, everyone absolutely copies it. Everyone’s still copying Britney Spears, it’s really interesting. She actually started a huge trend and they’re still trying to do this. I listen to the L.A. radio stations and there’s all these girls singing about being a bad girl and all this stuff and it all wants to be Britney. It’s very interesting.

John Benjamin Hickey & Andy Cohen Plausibly Hooked Up



The guests in the Bravo clubhouse with Andy tonight were Allison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey, they were later joined by Julie Chen for the After Show.

In a game of Truth or False, it was revealed that John Benjamin Hickey (The Big C) kind of dated Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen.

On the After Show John elaborates further about his 1st and only date with Andy. He states that back in 1991, when Andy was interning at CBS with Julie Chen (Who apparently had a crush on Andy Back then), went on a date. He describes how Andy looked like, what he wore & where they went. He ended the story by saying, "He was adorable."

Olivia Munn’s "Shape" magazine photoshoot



Olivia Munn is spotted doing a photoshoot for Shape magazine in Malibu on Friday (July 29). Whoa! Someone’s been eating their Wheaties!

Don’t miss Caught on Set’s photoshoot page for a lot more pics of celebrities on photoshoot sets.

Munn told Salon last year that she understand why a lot of people don’t like her:

“I’m easy to hate. I get it. When I first came to L.A., I would go to these commercial auditions for Target. I’m 110 pounds now, but I used to be 135. And I would go to these auditions and these girls would be, like, in that effortless L.A. look: T-shirt, jeans and flats. So thin they’d just walk with a shuffle. I know what it’s like to not think it’s fair for someone to look a certain way and also get the dream job. But it’s ridiculous to say that a woman can’t be funny and also be sexy.”

Grey's Anatomy's Jessica Capshaw Fat Shaming Her Own Children!!!! ...Okay, Not Really.



For Jessica Capshaw, bigger may be better — or at least what she’s used to!

“I don’t have slim children. I have hearty ones,” the Grey’s Anatomy actress, 34, tells PEOPLE with a laugh at the Ella Moss 10th anniversary party in Los Angeles on Thursday.

“My son [Luke, 3½] was almost 9 lbs. My babies keep getting heartier. [Eve Augusta, 9 months] is crawling like a crazy little monkey — she can move like a butterfly. She’s amazing.”

Her two children with husband Christopher Gavigan are fed with care, Capshaw says.

“I make all of her organic baby food, like I did with Luke,” the actress explains. “I don’t know how or why I decided that I was going to keep up with it, but I do. It’s like a second job! I say to my husband, ‘Why am I the only one that makes food?!’”

The actress admits the extra work is more for her own peace of mind than anything else, though.

“I’ve been making it all because I’m terrified of Eve choking,” Capshaw says. “She’s going to be able to eat more chunky foods [but meanwhile] I would feed her purées until she’s 18!”

Happy 30th Birthday, MTV.



Happy birthday to MTV, which technically turns 30 years old today, though it might be argued that it actually died at a younger age even than the members of the 27 Club.

It did drop the word "music" from its logo a couple of years ago, a reflection of its sad decline from being radio-on-the-TV to a network devoted to documenting the screw-ups of young women and the scoldings from Dr. Drew that follow.

'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' Alleged Pirate Identified by Summit

The studio today took the unorthodox step of sending out a press release identifying the alleged culprit in a March hacking incident that ended with images of the highly-anticipated vampire romance film circulating on the Internet.


Summit Entertainment isn't kidding around in its anti-piracy efforts on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. The studio today took the unorthodox step of sending out a press release identifying the alleged culprit in a March hacking incident that ended with images of the highly-anticipated vampire romance film circulating on the Internet.

Summit's release ID's Daiana Santia of Argentina as having been involved in a group that stole photos, unfinished images and video of Breaking Dawn, which will be released in two parts beginning in November. Summit's four-continent crusade involved the services of investigation firm Kroll Inc. and law firm Keats McFarland & Wilson, which located Santia and others in the northern Argentina town of Posadas. Civil actions have been filed in the U.S. and Argentina, along with a criminal action in Santia's home country.

“While we very much appreciate the legions of committed fans of the franchise and encourage them to create community online, we cannot ignore that property was stolen,” says David Friedman, Summit's executive vp and general counsel. “It is not fair to the majority of fans that want to see the final chapter of the Twilight Saga film franchise fully realized by the filmmaker and dedicated cast and crew to have these images out and available on the Internet.”

As we reported, Summit appealed to the Twilight fan community when the images began circulating online on March 31. At the time, the studio issed the following statement:

“As some of you may know pictures and screen grabs of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as a work in progress have leaked on the internet. We are extremely proud of this film and also extremely heartbroken to see it out there at this stage. The film and these images are not yet ready or in their proper context. They were illegally obtained and their early dissemination is deeply upsetting to the actors, the filmmakers and Summit who are working so hard to bring these movies to fruition to you in November 2011 and November 2012. Please, for those who are posting, stop. And please, though the temptation is high, don’t view or pass on these images. Wait for the film in its beautiful, finished entirety to thrill you."

Listen to Rachael Yamagata's new single "Starlight"

 

On her first two albums, singer/songwriter Rachael Yamagata proved she could write a piano ballad with the best of them. If you wanted atmospheric, moody and haunting Yamagata was right up there with the likes of Tori Amos and Fiona Apple on their most somber days. "Before I really gravitated to these darker songs and ballads and a lot of self-introspection," she tells Rolling Stone.

Hew new album, produced by John Alagia (Mandy Moore, John Mayer, Yamagata's Happenstance) and due this fall, finds a more relaxed Yamagata. "I lightened up in a way that gives this record more tempo and there’s almost a positivity to some of these songs, which I’ve never been able to do," she says. "There’s still some darker ballads, but, on the whole, it’s a lighter record."

Love the song, definitely sounds like something off her first album.

This is a Roger Daltrey post. And Formula One is involved but who cares it's a Roger Daltrey post.



As test-drives go, it was pure rock’n’roll. But even veteran rock legends have to respect the awesome power of a Lotus.

Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who, will not forget his outing on the British sports car company’s own track in a hurry. The 67-year-old reached speeds of up to 160mph around the circuit at Hethel, near Norwich.

But such is the G-force generated by the awesome horse-power that at one stage he had to pull over to deal with a wave of overwhelming car sickness . ‘Never eat a sausage before being thrown around in one of these,’ he laughed, as he emerged from the car back at the pit stop.

Stevie Wonder Surprises Crowd at Drake's OVO Fest With Half-Hour Set

Just two summers ago, Drake stood outside the gates of Ontario Place in his hometown of Toronto, waiting like everybody else to get into the Beyoncé concert at the Molson Amphitheatre. Few people made a fuss, even though he had starred for eight years on the teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation.

A year later, the biggest newcomer to hip-hop staged the inaugural OVO Fest (an acronym for his entertainment company October's Very Own) at the very same venue, enlisting heavyweight help throughout the night from Eminem, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Toronto's Kardinal Offishall and others. Beyoncé was reportedly backstage.

Last night's repeat visit topped even that: a surprise appearance by Stevie Wonder, who took over Drake's headlining set for a full half-hour with almost no accompaniment from his host, except some I-am-not-worthy-style bowing and a fun freestyle about "Stevie on the keys/I wonder who's next?" and "playing with a legend. There it is."

Throughout Drake's two-hour-plus show, there were other special guests: Nas, rising star J. Cole and Drake's label boss Lil Wayne of Young Money Entertainment, all of whom were previously unannounced, as well as OVO Fest's scheduled openers Rick Ross and Toronto R&B protégé the Weeknd (who performed live in concert for the first time last weekend). That's more than the sold-out crowd of 16,000 could ever have hoped for, but certainly didn't need, given Drake's on-the-mark performance skills. He could've handled the show on his own.

The End of Real Housewives of NYC Tonight!

JILL ZARIN ADMITS TO GOING TO 'AA', YET STILL CLAIMS SHES DOESNT DRINK AND NEVER HAD A DRINKING PROBLEM (Though we know she enjoys a Skinnygirl Margarita while she watches 'Bethenny Ever After' and weeps)

Hope you have recovered from last week’s reunion smackdown because ready or not, part two of the Real Housewives of New York City reunion airs tonight!

Jill Zarin is in damage control mode today after castmate Ramona Singer accused her of going to AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) on tonight’s reunion show and having a past “alcohol problem.”

Both Jill and Ramona actually appeared on The Today Show together this morning during which Jill admitted she has indeed been to AA but stated she was simply there to support someone. Jill also stated she has never had a drinking issue.


“I don’t drink. I never really have but I’ve been there to support other people,” said Jill. (BULLSHIT) Ramona however made it clear that is not what she heard. “I heard she had a serious drinking problem. I heard she was in AA,” stated Ramona. (TRUTH)

Jill then tried to put her own spin on Ramona outing her AA past by stating Ramona’s actions is now scaring others from howe going to AA to get help. Ramona however made a valid point in the interview when she stated Jill was doing the exact same thing by trying to out her own alcohol problem, which she denies having by the way. So according to Jill, outing someone’s alcohol problem is okay as long as they’ve never been to AA.

Six episodes into Season 4 of True Blood, things are definitely heating up in the small, sexy town of Bon Temps, where vampires, werewolves, witches and all things supernatural are becoming more commonplace than the humans.

Tense talks between AMC and Sony over 'Breaking Bad'

Tense negotiations are underway between the cable network AMC and Sony Television, producer of "Breaking Bad," over a deal for a fifth and probably final season of the critically acclaimed drama.

Talks seemed to reach an impasse last week when Sony sent feelers to at least three other cable networks about taking "Breaking Bad" should an agreement with AMC fall through, said two people with knowledge of the matter who requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the talks.

To be sure, negotiations between networks and producers are often heated. As shows age, they become more expensive as actors' and producers' paychecks get bigger with success. Both sides have in dictated that they hope to reach a pact that will keep "Breaking Bad" on AMC.

Discussions grew heated when AMC tried to convince the makers of of the show that its fifth season run only six to eight episodes instead of the typical 13. That was rejected by the creative forces behind the show, which led them to approach other outlets.

Journalist Outs Ellen Page

Photobucket

V-Generations was never really supposed to be a gossip site. Neither do I have any kind of interest in the private lives of celebrities, except for those who are involved in humanitarian causes. I have to know if they are honest with their intentions to help people or if they are just doing it to promote themselves or their movies.

What I have learned is this: The closer you look the more dirt, corruption and lies you will find. And I have enough of this. I have enough of false heroes and fake acts of honesty and sincerely. I have enough of Hollywood’s spineless greedy mentality slithering its way into human misery and feeding from it like a parasite.

June was called the “Pride Month” and we saw some really great developments like the New York same-sex marriage legalization. Now, New York has their first married gay couple. Additionally, the United Nations has passed a resolution for gay rights.

But where are the Hollywood actors? Don’t they always claim to be outspoken for good causes? Where are all the left wing, liberal artists speaking out for the oppressed gay minority? I tell you where they are. They are hiding in their closets making lucrative business deals like Ellen Page.

The comic book team the ‘X-MEN’ always served as a metaphor for an oppressed minority like gay people or Jews. ‘X-Men Generation Hope’ issue Nr. 9 deals with the ongoing problem of Gay-Teen suicide, inspired by the real events. Ironically, Page has become famous playing Kitty Pryde, a member of the X-MEN.

Page claims to “believe in truth” and to stand for what she believes in. But like many other actors she hides behind her lawyer and manager deep in the closet, while gay teenagers struggle to survive.

The 33-year-old  model – who has previously been in relationships with cage fighter Alex Reid and Australian singer Peter Andre - insisted she isn't doing the show as an attempt at being 'famous or massive' in America.

She told The Sun newspaper: 'It's taken nearly a year to set this contract up. We're thinking of doing the road trip from New York to Los Angeles.

'But I want a big Priscilla-style van. You've got to make it fun. The cameras will be inside the van. That's what we're working on at the moment.

'I'll be in America in September and they're trying to work out what they want to do. I'm not trying to be famous or massive, I'm just doing what I want to do.'

She explained: 'Even over here the next reality show I'm doing is going to be a road trip to make it more interesting.

The 30 Best Music Videos Ever

With the launch of MTV thirty years ago, video took on a new role in the music world -- and as the first song played on the cable network (The Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star") declared, video did, indeed, kill the radio star.

At the time of its launch, the cable channel's reach was minimal, initially airing a small collection of music videos in selected New Jersey markets. Within a few years, however, music videos became standard practice for artists both big and small. Technology and aesthetics have progressed through the years, but classic music videos -- like "Thriller" or Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" -- were in no short supply even during the medium's infancy. But the continuing craft of artists like Beyoncé ("Single Ladies"), Britney Spears ("Toxic") and Lady Gaga ("Bad Romance") proves the music video is still alive.

"Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll" may have been the first words famously uttered during MTV's launch, but as the results of our readers' poll reflects, the medium has done truly incredible things for the pop music world, with Madonna, MJ and Britney Spears among the polls' overall victors.

Welcome 2 My Nightmare: Alice Cooper Returns with a New Album, New Nightmare

Alice Cooper’s widely anticipated new album, Welcome 2 My Nightmare, will be released September 13, 2011, by Universal Music Enterprises. Recorded with longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin, who produced the original multi-platinum Welcome To My Nightmare album in 1975, the album picks up right where they left off, with Alice trapped in his own warped mind.

The original release is an all-time rock classic that spawned a worldwide theatrical tour and pioneering U.S. TV special, and certified Alice Cooper as a visionary trailblazer whose influence persists today in rock, metal, pop, punk, theatre, television, film and much more.

More than 35 years later, Alice and Ezrin have resurrected the horror and humor for a new generation.

"I think a lot of my audience is going to go 'KE$HA!?', but she probably wrote the most wicked lyrics in the song – we had to rein her in. I like people to know that just because artists are put in a pigeon hole, that doesn't mean that's what they are. Give people a little room."

Well said. This is bound to be amazing, cannot wait for that album to be released to listen to the song. People should be comparing Ke$ha to this kind of live performers anyway tbh, not to pop acts (no insult intended). Ke$ha = pretty mental rock'n'roll artist in pop music wrapping, basically.

30 Rock to Continue With or Without Alec Baldwin

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lorne Michaels was on the Television Critics Association panel for the new NBC comedy Up All Night. After the panel when the press gaggled around him, he spoke about his thoughts and hopes for 30 Rock. With contracts coming up at the end of season six, and stars like Alec Baldwin threatening retirement, Michaels still sees 30 rockin’ along.

“Listen, you can’t imagine doing the show without Alec but I couldn’t imagine doing the show without Chevy either and we’re still on the air,” Michaels said, invoking Chase’s departure from SNL. “I would hope that we would never have to go on without him but we’re going to keep doing the show.”

Tina Fey is at home this summer expecting a baby. Then she’s ready to go back to work too. “Right now she’s having a baby but I know that she’s completely committed to the show, as are a lot of people who work there. Alec is a huge part of it. It’s a great group. I think it still has a lot of vitality and life in it. We’re all pretty much determined to keep it going, and I’m hopeful.”

Michaels also spoke out about 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan’s controversial anti-gay rant and how it might affect his return to the show. “We haven’t started yet but obviously everyone has been talking. I think he totally regretted it, he apologized for it. I think it was a thoughtless thing to say but it was the middle of a concert and he was trying to be provocative I think. It just blew up and I think he confronted it and dealt with it. I know what kind of man he is and he’s not a hateful person in any way, shape or form. What he said was stupid and there’s no justification for it, I’m just saying I don’t think it came from any real thought really.”

The subsequent Tracy Morgan controversy, about a routine on the mentally challenged, made less waves. “I think that’s from his act from 15 years ago. It was in his HBO special. When you scrutinize anybody’s comedy, it’s not the criteria you should really judge it by. He’s not being taught in schools.”

Brand New Trailer and Poster for 'Like Crazy'

The film stars Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence


"Of you, and me..." Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for Drake Doremus' indie Like Crazy, one of my favorite films of the Sundance Film Festival. Like Crazy stars Anton Yelchin as a college student who meets a young British girl, Felicity Jones, also studying in LA, they fall in love, but she overstays her visa, gets in trouble and has to remain in the UK. And since you guys need to know about the casting, Jennifer Lawrence is in the mix, too. I'd call this the 500 Days of Summer-meets-Blue Valentine of 2011, because it's an emotionally heavy film, but of the same extraordinary quality as both. I can't recommend it enough!

Watch the first official trailer for Drake Doremus' Like Crazy:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The novelist and comics writer talks about bringing the first chapter in George R. R. Martin's epic to the comics page and we bring you a 5-page preview of the first issue!

We brought you news a few weeks back that Dynamite Entertainment would be releasing a monthly Game of Thrones comic based on the wildly popular George R.R. Martin novel of the same name. With Alex Ross and Mike S. Miller providing covers to novelist Daniel Abraham scripts and artist Tommy Patterson's interiors, we thought we'd check in with Abraham, author of the Long Price of Quiet author about crafting an adaptation of the novel, particularly in the wake of the HBO series.

Katy Perry Sets Mainstream Top 40 Record With Fifth No. 1 Single from 'Teenage Dream'



Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" becomes the first album in the almost 19-year history of Billboard's Mainstream Top 40 chart to generate five No. 1s, as "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" ascends 2-1.

The song follows "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg, the title cut, "Firework" and "E.T.," featuring Kanye West, to the top of the Nielsen BDS-based pop radio airplay ranking.

"Dream" pushes past two albums that each yielded four Mainstream Top 40 leaders: Justin Timberlake's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" (2006-07) and Lady Gaga's "The Fame" (2009).

Poster & Trailer for "Like Crazy"

Staring Felicity Jones, Anton Yelchin & Jennifer Lawrence



Every independent filmmaker wants to claim that their movie took Sundance, or Cannes, or whichever given festival by storm, but Drake Doremus definitely wouldn't be exaggerating. The director's third feature film premiered at Sundance to the kind of glowing, sighing reviews that rarely happen among skeptical festival crowds, and when it took home both the Best Actress prize for star Felicity Jones and the big kahuna Grand Jury Prize in its category, none of us on the ground at the festival were surprised. Featuring Jones and Anton Yelchin as a pair of college students who fall hard for each other and try to keep the relationship together despite the distance between them, Like Crazy is beautifully photographed and deeply felt, cracking open the emotions of love that feel so personal when you're in them that you can't imagine anyone else ever getting it. Doremus gets it, and was rewarded when Like Crazy made that tricky leap from festival success to major studio release-- it hits theaters October 28 through Paramount Pictures.

And now, nearly 7 months after its Sundance premiere, the rest of the world can finally get a look at what everyone else has been swooning about. The first trailer and poster for Like Crazy premiered today at Apple, and you can check them both out below.

More royal news from Ibiza... why am I not there?

Princess Caroline’s Husband Hospitalized



The estranged husband of Monaco’s Princess Caroline is being hospitalized in Spain. Reportedly, Prince Ernst August of Hannover, age 57, is ill with pancreatitis, a condition brought on by heavy drinking. The Prince once suffered from the disease back  in 2005.

That episode prevented Ernst from attending the funeral of his father-in-law, Prince Rainier III, the late sovereign of Monaco. At the time, Ernst said he will give up his wild ways.

“I don’t want (to die) yet. My daughter is only five years old,” he said of the now 12 year old Princess Alexandra.

Although married in 1999, Prince Ernst and Princess Caroline have been seen together in over two years. Early last year, the Prince was photographed kissing another woman while vacationing in Thailand. He also did not attend the wedding of Caroline’s brother, Prince Albert II earlier this month.

So far, there are no plans for Ernst and Caroline to divorce.

Ke$ha torch!

Ke$ha gets some highly deserved acknowledgement in The Tennessean's blog




Ke$ha's key to success: songwriting

She might forever be known as the girl who claimed to brush her teeth with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s (as outlined in her breakout hit “TiK ToK”), but in reality, Kesha Rose Sebert has found a much healthier way to get a buzz: writing a song.

“It’s pure ecstasy and excitement that runs through your veins,” she says.

There’s no question the 24-year-old Nashville resident — known to the world as “Ke$ha” — is one of the city’s biggest noncountry music stars. In fewer than two years, she’s had six consecutive singles reach the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart — including the No. 1 hits “TiK ToK” and “We R Who We R.” More quietly, she’s also become one of its most successful new songwriters.

On top of having a co-writing credit on every song she’s released, she’s helped pen others for Miley Cyrus, Miranda Cosgrove and, most famously, Britney Spears. The song she co-wrote for Spears, “Till the World Ends”, became a top-five hit earlier this year, and cast a new light on Ke$ha as a behind-the-scenes talent.

“I consider myself a songwriter first and foremost”, she says, noting the influence of her songwriter mom, Pebe Sebert, who co-wrote Dolly Parton’s “Old Flames Can’t Hold a Candle to You” with Hugh Moffatt.

About time the media slowly begins to realize that she in fact is an accomplished songwriter.

Olivia Wilde owes life to Walton Goggins


Actress Olivia Wilde owes her life to her Cowboys & Aliens co-star Walton Goggins (Boyd Crowder from Justified) after he saved her from getting trampled to death in a horse stampede scene.

The Tron: Legacy star appears alongside Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford in Jon Favreau's new sci-fi Western and she hit the red carpet for the movie's big premiere at Comic-Con in San Diego, California on Saturday.

But Wilde admits she is lucky to be alive - and it's only thanks to Goggins' quick-thinking that she escaped one harrowing shoot unharmed.

Speaking at the big screening, she tells E! News, "We were riding 40 horses deep, galloping into battle and if you watch really closely in the movie you may be able to catch it, but I got bucked off and I fell under my horse and I was about to get trampled by about 40 horses, but Walton Goggins turned his horse sideways and saved my life, so I'm very lucky to be here tonight."

Stevie Nicks reacts to being made fun of on South Park, remains infinitely cooler than all your favs

 
In an interview with KBCO Radio, the Reigning Gypsy Queen shared her feelings about South Park and explained how the late Betty Ford saved her life. You can listen to the full audio interview here.

KBCO:  I was wondering if you had seen the episode of the animated series South Park where they used 'Landslide' recently.

STEVIE: I haven't seen it, but I okay'd it. They called me and asked me. It was going into production the next day, and I was in London doing press. You know, I like South Park, and I like the two guys that do it. I think they're really funny and I think that they're relevant. You know, they already did an episode kind of about me a long time ago, and I got kidnapped by the Afghanistan people and they sent the army in to get me. Yes, I was a little goat in a cape. But who cares? It was hysterical. The fact is, they sent the whole army in to get me.

So True? So False? Is Reese Witherspoon Baby Bumpin'?!


Oh, Paris, land of l'amour.

Reese Witherspoon and hubby Jim Toth are finally enjoying some time away on their honeymoon in France.

Although the trip came four months late (but who's counting?), some snapshots of the duo suggest that certain honeymoon activities—aka making babies—might have started right after the I-dos.

Could the mom of two be pregnant with child No. 3?

Well, pull out those pacifiers, folks, because this report is...

Britney's gruelling tour pays off as the pop star shows off chiselled stomach on stage


She may have packed a paunch when she kicked off her U.S. tour last month, but now Britney Spears has the body of a Femme Fatale. When the superstar singer embarked on her tour in June, she looked out of shape and was even sporting a slight muffin top in her tight costumes. But now the 29-year-old singer is back in top form, which was evident Friday when she hit the stage for a sold out show at the Palace of Auburn Hill in Detroit, Michigan.

Sophie Monk Offered $1m To Pose Nude For Playboy


 

Sophie Monk has been offered $1 million to pose nude for Playboy.

The Australian model-and-actress has been approached by the iconic men's magazine, which was founded by Hugh Hefner, to strip off in its pages and admits she is still unsure about whether or not to accept the offer.

She said: "I got offered Playboy - the cover, they're trying every angle to get me to do it. They're re-launching the whole thing and making it old-school again because it kind of lost it for me. When I was younger I was like, 'I want to be on Playboy.' My mum was a Playmate ... she was hot.

"They've offered me a million ... and it's negotiable how much you show. I don't know, though. Some people are like, 'No.' My agents, they said it could stop me getting movies."

If she does decide to strip off for the magazine, Sophie, who has posed nude before, will go all out and show her entire body.

Speaking on The Kyle & Jackie O Show on Australian radio station 2Day FM, she said: "It's Playboy, no one wants to see me clothed. It's boobs and a little bit of...

"I've done a movie as not myself for like $2.50 showing my boobs, but being me naked selling magazines for men to get excited over is a different story for me, personally."

Ali Larter Becomes 'The Rambler'


Once in (very rare) while, you see a short film and wish it were, you know, longer. Such is the case with the titillating short, "The Rambler," which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in 2008.

Now, thanks to the vision of director Calvin Reeder, your wish is about to come true—and better yet, it's going to star Ali Larter.

Reeder, who just premiered his first feature film, "The Oregonian," at the most recent Sundance circuit, is prepping to shoot a feature version of "The Rambler" in early fall. Production starts this October in New Mexico, and a bevy of stars are lining up to bring this story to the silver screen.

Dermot Mulroney (of "Zodiac" and "The Grey" fame), Lindsay Pulsipher ("True Blood"), and, as previously mentioned, "Final Destination"'s Ali Larter, are in talks to star in the movie.

The flick follows a stranger who takes to the lonely highway with nothing but his guitar and traveling sack, but soon comes across a few odd characters, like, er, a scientist with a machine that record dreams… and some guy with "mummies" in the back of his truck.

Sounds like an exciting road trip to us.

The anorexia victims aged FIVE: Doctors blame ultra-slim celebrities



Children as young as five are being treated in hospital for severe anorexia in a shocking illustration of how early they can become obsessed with body image.

A total of 98 youngsters aged between five and seven have been admitted during the last three years because of eating disorders normally associated with teenagers and adults.

A further 99 aged eight and nine were admitted over the same period, as were almost 400 aged between ten and 12, and 1,500 between 13 and 15.

The number of under-nines needing hospital treatment has doubled in the past year.

And these represent only the most severe cases, where children have become so desperately underweight that their lives are in danger.
