Heidi Fleiss thinks Lindsay Lohan would make "a great hooker"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss says if Lindsay Lohan ever wants a career change, she's got a great idea: high-priced call girl.

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan's acting career is probably down the drain, but that doesn't mean she should give up on making big bucks anymore. Former Hollywood madam and Celebrity Rehab star Heidi Fleiss says there is still one industry where Lohan's notoriety for her bad-girl ways would be an asset: prostitution.

Fleiss, who used to manage a roster of hookers catering to Hollywood's elite -- including Charlie Sheen -- told HLN's Showbiz Tonight that she could have raked in a fortune if Lohan had been one of her girls.

"She's hot she would have made a great hooker," Fleiss said during the Wednesday night interview. "I could have made millions off her."

While the troubled Lohan -- who is still on morgue duty after violating her probation -- has not yet resorted to prostitution as far as we know, she did just shoot a spread for Playboy worth close to $1 million.

"She's beautiful and I think it's brilliant," Fleiss said of Lohan's decision to take it all off for the mag.

"Maybe she needs this money to get on the right track."

This isn't the first time Fleiss has spoken about Lohan. Back in January, the former madam said people who were comparing her old client Charlie Sheen with the troubled starlet were way off the mark, because while Sheen was just playing around, Lohan is a real addict.

"There is no comparison with Lindsay Lohan because she is not functional and is an addict with a sickness -- I should know because I've been to rehab several times too," Fleiss said.

"It's not as if we see Charlie smoking a crack pipe or anything, the guy just loves to party, and people just don't seem to want to accept that."

Lohan's camp has not commented on Fleiss's career advice.

MTV schedules Ryan Dunn tribute

MTV has put together a tribute to Jackass star Ryan Dunn, who was killed in a drunk driving car crash this June along with friend and Jackass crew member Zachary Hartwell. Airing Nov. 28, the one-hour program will focus on Dunn’s life growing up in Ohio and his rise to fame on Jackass. Co-stars Johnny Knoxville, Rob Dyrdek, Wee Man, Chris Pontius, Jeff Tremaine, and Bam Margera will tell stories about Dunn’s life, and the network will air footage of Dunn’s stunts for Jackass and Viva LA Bam that have never been seen before.

Directly before the broadcast at 10:30 p.m. EST, MTV will also premiere an all-new episode of Dyrdek’s Ridiculousness, guest starring Dunn in one of his final television appearances. A special encore presentation of Jackass 3.5 will follow.“It’s a surreal thing to undertake, doing a tribute to our brother Ryan’s life,” said Knoxville, who is also executive producing the special with Spike Jonze and Derek Freda. “I still can’t believe he’s gone but we wouldn’t trust anyone else with this, so we are doing the best we can for Ryan, his family, friends, and everyone who loved him.”


Demi Moore And Ashton Kutcher Divorce: What's Next For Them?

Today, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are in the spotlight for their impending divorce; Moore announced that she had filed for the formal split on Thursday. But as Hollywood stars, the show must go on. So, what's next for the pair?

Kutcher, who was a fan favorite and ratings darling on "That '70s Show," has had a much less successful go of it as a movie star. He has appeared in a dramas such as "Bobby" and "The Butterfly Effect" and "Spread," as well as a prolific number of critically panned romantic comedies, including "Just Married," "A Lot Like Love," "Guess Who," "What Happens In Vegas," "Killers," and "Valentine's Day." His most recent film, "No Strings Attached," was another derided rom com.

The rough go of it on the big screen precipitated a move back to television, as he took over for Charlie Sheen as the star opposite Jon Cryer in the smash hit "Two and a Half Men." As for his next film, he will once again appear in a romantic comedy, the ensemble "Valentine's Day" followup, "New Year's Eve." He has no other announced roles beyond the upcoming December release.

As for Moore, she just starred in the Ellen Barkin-starring drama, "Another Happy Day," as well as the acclaimed financial crisis ensemble, "Margin Call," in which she plays a member of a tanking financial firm. Her next film is "LOL," a comedy in which she co-stars with Miley Cyrus and Ashley Greene.

It's Official: "Star Trek" Sequel Will Start Filming in January

Production on the sequel to 2009's backdoor reboot is scheduled to begin January 15th, 2012, with location scouting underway and a script at the third draft.

The sequel, which won't actually be titled Star Trek 2 (it's just the simplest, most effective moniker, despite this actually being the twelfth movie in the theatrical Trek franchise), commences shooting on January 15, 2012, according to a new report at TrekMovie. Naturally, preproduction has been underway for some time, initially working from that very detailed 70-page outline we heard about in the spring.

Top 5 Stephen King Film Adaptations That Need To Be Made

In the 35 years since Carrie came to our screens, Stephen King has become one of the most bankable names in horror and fantasy film. The list of adaptations of his work reads like a who’s-who of filmmaking: Carrie, Salem’s Lot, The Shining, Creepshow, Christine, The Dead Zone, Stand By Me, Pet Semetary, It, Misery, The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist, The Green Mile etc., etc.. It’s hard to think of any other living writer whose work has been so prolifically embraced by filmmakers.

But just as Stephen King has continued to write (despite threatening retirement in 2002), so the public’s appetite for his work remains. While recent adaptations like Secret Window and 1408 have hardly been stellar, there are plenty of other King works which would make for riveting viewing. Here are 5 that should be at the top of any film executive’s list for green-lighting.

Boat captain alleges actor Robert Wagner responsible for Natalie Wood's death

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The man who says he urged homicide investigators to look into the mysterious death of actress Natalie Wood, who drowned in 1981 while boating off the coast of California, came on TODAY Friday to talk about why.

"I made some terrible decisions and mistakes," said Dennis Davern, the former captain of the Splendour, the yacht at the center of the incident. Wood had been boating with her husband, Robert Wagner and his "Brainstorm" co-star Christopher Walken, off Santa Catalina Island.

"I did lie on a report several years ago," Davern told David Gregory. "I made mistakes by not telling the honest truth in a police report."

When pressed by Gregory, Davern said he believed Wagner had intentionally kept the investigation into her death low-profile. And when asked if he thought Wagner was "responsible" for Wood’s death, Davern said, "yes, I would say so. Yes."

"We didn’t take any steps to see if we could locate her," Davern admitted. Many of the details he shared have appeared in the book "Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour," authored by Marti Rulli.

EW interview with the Twilight trio and new pics!!

The End Begins

“Dude,” says Kristen Stewart. “There was something so sensory about it,”

An hour ago, Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson - otherwise known as the stars of The Twilight Saga - had their hand-and footprints immortalized in cement outside of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Still giddy, palms stained a faint gray, the 21-year-old actress waxes poetic to her costars for a moment about how it felt when, right after leaving her prints for posterity, she impulsively grabbed Lautner’s and Pattinson’s hands. “the concrete was so gritty and I didn’t even look, I just found your hands and it really felt like something,” she says. The dudes she’s speaking to, being dudes, burst into laughter. Stewart glares at them with mock rage: “You know what? Fuck you both right now in the face for laughing at me.”

Up All Night, Modern Family and TV’s Feminism for Men

In the last episode of Up All Night, stay-at-home dad Chris (Will Arnett) and wife Reagan (Christina Applegate) are looking for a part-time babysitter so Chris can get some time to himself. One of his first requirements: “I don’t want a dude babysitter. I know that I’m supposed to be OK with it. But come on! You’re a dude, dude!”

It’s a weird statement for him to be making considering his own life choices. But it also shows the complexity of his position: He made the decision to stay at home while his wife worked willingly and without drama, and he knows that there can still be stigma and awkwardness around stay-at-home dads—yet he can’t help carrying some of that same baggage. It’s an intriguing moment, and one that makes me feel that, in a season distinguished by women stars and creators, Chris, a dude, is one of the most feminist new characters on TV.

Up All Night is one of those shows created by a female writer, Emily Spivey. And its impressive achievement in its handling of the labor division between Reagan and Chris is how matter-of-fact it is. Up All Night is a show with a stay-a-home dad and a work-in-the-office mom; it’s not a show about a stay-a-home dad and a work-in-the-office mom. That is, it’s a show about the challenges of new parenting, not the Mr. Mom weirdness of gender role reversal. (Compare the upcoming ABC sitcom Work It, in which the male stars literally dress in drag to get jobs in female-dominated pharmaceutical sales. Because they’re doing lady work!)

The easiest ways for TV to deal with gender differences (like race or anything else) is to ignore them or obsess over them. What’s tougher, and what Up All Night has been pulling off well (even if it’s still finding its way as a comedy) is treating them as simply one factor among many, sometimes more important than others.

Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis on Oz: The Great and Powerful

(mostly Michelle, though ♥)

While Michelle Williams is likely getting more buzz these days for My Week with Marilyn, which arrives in theaters on November 23rd, she also has Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful in the works. Williams had some interesting things to say about playing the iconic Glinda in the film.

The LA Times ran an article on Williams’ involvement in Oz: The Great and Powerful. Raimi’s film, which also stars James Franco, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis, has Franco playing a con man from Kansas who hopes to achieve fame and fortune in Oz. Of course, things don’t go as planned when he gets there and encounters three witches, one of which is played by Williams.

By comparison to the research Williams did to play Marilyn Monroe for My Week With Marilyn, it sounds as though her homework was already done for her when it came to Oz. Williams says she’d already seen The Wizard of Oz numerous times because it’s one of her daughter's favorites, however it doesn’t like we should expect the same Glinda we saw in the classic Judy Garland film.

Williams said Sam Raimi wants a fresh take on the character:

Kathy Griffin On Life After 50

Though comedian and actress Kathy Griffin established her career in stand-up by painting herself as a Hollywood outsider -- most famously reflected in the title of her Emmy-winning Bravo series, "Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List" -- her unapologetic, tell-it-like-it-is approach to comedy and social commentary have earned her a growing fan base, not to mention lifetime bans from both David Letterman and the ladies from "The View."

As a household name both in the context of the entertainment industry and the world of political advocacy, it's safe to say Griffin is no longer part of the 'D-list.'

She's a one-woman joke-telling powerhouse, with more than 10 critically acclaimed stand-up specials to her name; an accomplished actress, having been featured on everything from "Law & Order" to "Glee". If that weren't enough, Griffin helped organize a rally in Washington DC in March of 2010 to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Huff/Post50 recently caught up with the contagiously cheerful Emmy-winner and Twitter celebrity (she has more than 1 million followers!) to ask her 10 big questions.

"Breaking Dawn: Part 1" -- $30.25 Million From Midnight Screenings

Guess Twilight didn't need the "real men" after all. The midnight numbers for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 are in, and they're big. Box Office Mojo has tweeted that the film took in $30.25 million from midnight screenings alone, slightly up from last summers Eclipse which made just over $30 million.

For comparisons sakes, Deathly Hallows Part 1 made $24 million from its midnight screenings back in 2010. And of course Part 2 shattered the midnight gross records with $43.5 million this past July-- although that was boosted by 3D admissions.

The numbers bode well for Breaking Dawn, which is on track to earn anywhere from $130-150 million over the full weekend.

Leo, Carey, and Tobey on the set of The Great Gatsby

We can’t get enough of these Great Gatsby costumes. Leonardo DiCaprio‘s handsomeness is knocked up a few notches when he puts on the white suit (and the charm) to play his character Jay Gatsby.

Meanwhile, Carey Mulligan was a vision in violet, with her costume matching her character Daisy Buchanan’s style perfectly. Tobey Maguire wasn’t dressed up quite as much as his costars but in these shots, he dons a green sweater and bow tie as he takes on the role of Nick Carraway. The trio were spotted shooting scenes in Sydney, Australia on Friday.

As you probably could have guessed, the film is an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s beloved novel Great Gatsby set in Long Island. The book-turned-film centers around Midwesterner Nick Carraway who is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway sees through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.

This film has been picking up high praise lately from advanced screenings, and is sure to be an awards contender when Oscar-time comes. I love the cast (Patton Oswalt stars in a supporting role), and Reitman’s Up in the Air was my favorite pic of 2009, so I’m very much looking forward to seeing the film once it opens.

Kelly Osbourne: I support the transgender community

Following her comments about a transgender friends in Glamour UK, Kelly came under fire from transgender advocates for her use of the slur "tr*nny" among others. Kelly soon got in touch with GLAAD expressing her desire to apologize to the transgender community, but also to share some of the information she herself had researched about anti-transgender bias, slurs, and the Transgender Day of Remembrance. The essay also appears on Transadvocate.

I'd first like to make it clear that no one asked me to write this. After reaching out to GLAAD for advice and clarification, I thought it was imperative to explain and amend my wrong. I gained a lot of knowledge, and I now feel the urgency to speak out and teach others. As unfortunate as this incident was, I assure you it was taken out of context, but I cannot deny the words; they did come out of my mouth.

As a lifelong LGBT ally and friend, I feel it is my duty to not only apologize for my wrong but to also correct it. The word “tr*nny” is a derogatory and hurtful word. I was completely ignorant to this and soon came to realize most of my peers and LGBT friends are too. This is a word I will no longer use or allow. It wasn't until I googled it after speaking with GLAAD that I found out just how unbelievably offensive it was. When friends jokingly called me that in the past, I took it as a compliment or a joke, but I couldn't have been more wrong.

Riri not hapRih being single!

Rihanna’s newest single might be called “You Da One,” but it appears there’s no one in the popstar’s life right now — romantically speaking.

“I’m not dating anyone right now,” Rihanna said as she taped an appearance for Monday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

“I’m not dating at all,” Rihanna added.

And the Barbados-born beauty said she’s not exactly pleased with her relationship status.

“I’m not necessarily happy being single. It’s not really that cool,” she said, adding she just doesn’t have the time to focus on romance.

The busy singer told Ellen she likes a guy who can handle the traditional manly-man role.

“I like men that are more aggressive, but mysterious, but I like a man to be very sure,” she said. “I like them to be sure of themselves and know that you’re the man. I’m the lady and the only way for us to make this work is for us to play our roles. You know, I can’t really be the man for you. I don’t want to have to be. I’m the man at work all the time.”

The singer even got a little bold on “Ellen,” suggesting her lack of dating doesn’t do much for her between-the-sheets life.

“I do put a lot into my job — most of my time if not all of it. It definitely affects my personal life. My personal life is pretty much non-existent, which is not good, not for the long run. Not for me, not for ‘Her,’” she said, pointing between her legs.

“It’s not fun,” she added with a laugh.

Rihanna added that whole issue prompts her to hit the Internet.

“That’s why I stay on Twitter a lot. So I can conversate with my fans — because I don’t get any booty calls,” she added.

Hiddleston's BFF Ken Branagh talks about playing Larry Olivier in "My Week With Marilyn"

In Branagh's upcoming movie, 'My Week with Marilyn' (based on the books by Colin Clark), the actor once again shows off his versatility by playing Sir Laurence Olivier. When you take into account the type of career Olivier had, this is no easy task -- particularly because the Sir Laurence in 'My Week' is not the one viewers are likely familiar with. Here, he is frazzled and bitter, as he attempts to direct and star alongside Marilyn Monroe (played by Michelle Williams, already garnering Oscar buzz) in 'The Prince and the Showgirl.' Things are complicated from the start, as Olivier gets frustrated with the sex symbol's tardiness and acting style.

Daniel Radcliffe hangs out with Alan Rickman, may possibly play a gay character in a new project

Daniel Radcliffe visited his former Harry Potter costar Alan Rickman earlier this month backstage of the Snape actor's production of Seminar, currently on Broadway. A photo of the pair from November 7 can be seen, via EW, here. It should be noted that the production was canceled on Thursday as Alan fell ill, having suffered from an acute respiratory infection, but according to the production's Facebook, it will continue performances this evening.

While doing promotion for The Woman in Black this week with international press, Daniel Radcliffe let a couple of teasers slip about a possible project he may be doing in 2012, after he completes work in How to Succed in Business Without Really Trying and his promotional tour of the supernatural thriller in January and February 2012. Dan spoke to France's TÊTU magazine and had this to reveal (loosely translated to English).

On Monday, during the marathon promotional for his new film, The Woman in Black, the star of Harry Potter released he was "very likely" to play a gay character in a movie to come out in the course of next year. "But I will say no more," he told TÊTU.

Radcliffe prefers to anticipate the hype around this future role: "Many things will be said about the gay thing, but I prefer to say now that this project is much more than that."

As for the prospect of kissing a boy? "I'm not sure that I would like it," he smiles. "But I guess I'll find out."

Something for errbody--Interview with Askars, 'Kiki', and Empress of the World Charlotte

Unfortunately, Melancholia is known as “The Lars von Trier Nazi comments film,” after the misguided remarks the director made at last summer’s Cannes film festival. It’s unfortunate, too, because it’s his best film in years. Billed as a “Beautiful movie about the end of the world,” Melancholia is exhausting and intimate, a psychological drama under the guise of a disaster flick. Kirsten Dunst, who won best actress at Cannes for her performance, plays Justine, who is estranged from her sister Claire, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg. Alexander Skarsgard, making a departure from the dangerous men he’s embodied as of late, plays Michael, who’s set to marry Justine. All the while, a rogue planet is on a collision course with Earth. The film finally opens in New York this weekend. We recently caught up with Dunst, Gainsbourg, and Skarsgard, who traveled deep into the land of von Trier and lived to tell about it.

David Giuntoli & Russell Hornsby Talk NBC's Grimm

NBC is bringing the creepy factor on its Friday night fairy tale show "Grimm." But the program is more than meets the eye. It has a complex back story for its main character Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) who is constantly fending off his foes while keeping secrets from friends, including fellow cop Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby).

The stars of the show, Giuntoli and Hornsby, sat down with Zap2it to talk about a variety of subjects. Here are a few highlights:

On how Burkhardt will keep his identity a secret: "As the show goes on, I realize that the bad boys are coming for me where ever I am...It's getting dangerously close to everybody...I'm spinning a lot of plates. I'm trying to figure out how to live a double life."

On Hornsby's favorite Grimm tale: "I enjoy 'The Pied Piper' because I'm deathly afraid of rats. And it's like one of those things where what you're afraid of, you're attracted to."

On Burkhardt's relationship with Monroe: "It's always a tentative relationship with Monroe. I think he'll bite me and I think he'll help me. But which one we're going to get, we don't know."

On how Burkhardt will fend off his foes: "Eventually I'm going to have to start working some of these people: politically, strong arming them, making them stay away from my friends, working with them and making alliances."

The show airs at 9 p.m. ET on Fridays.


ABC announces midseason schedule; Cougar Town still nowwhere to be found

The Cul-de-sac Crew remains banished to ABC’s wine cellar.

The Alphabet network has unveiled its midseason schedule and, shockingly, it doesn’t include any mention of the on-the-bench Cougar Town.

It does, however, include premiere dates for new dramedy GCB (which will replace Pan Am on Sundays at 10 pm beginning in March) and creepy thriller The River (airing Tuesdays at 9 pm beginning Feb. 7) so there’s that.

Other key scheduling shifts:

* New comedy Work It will replace Man Up on Tuesdays at 8:30 pm beginning Jan. 3.

* The Ashley-Judd-fronted drama Missing will air in Charlie’s Angels old slot on Thursdays at 8 pm beginning March 15. (Winter Wipeout will fill the slot in January and February.)

* The new cycle of Dancing With the Stars bows Monday, March 19.

Back to Cougar Town, an ABC source assures TVLine that the wine-soaked comedy will return sometime in the spring — which, by our calculations, is still way too late.

'The X Factor' third eliminated act: 'Simon throws everybody who's not in his category under the bus

Stacy Francis, the 42-year-old single mother from Brooklyn who was eliminated Thursday night, told journalists backstage that she didn’t understand the controversial behavior of fellow finalist Astro. “You can call him a teenager and give him an excuse, but I think he wasn’t gracious in that moment,” said Francis. “In the real scheme of things, no matter what, you have to be grateful. I think America is really down on people who take on arrogance that way, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s in the bottom two again next week.

Having said that, Francis also took some responsibility for her own stage demeanor this week. “[Wednesday] night, when I was standing in front of the judges, it came off like [I was] arrogant,” she admitted. “But I was basically in shock. I was very disappointed in myself, and yet the fans thought I was being arrogant. I think I have to manage my emotions and just be more humble.”

Francis said that she’ll now begin to focus on getting signed by a management company. “I do have to feed my children,” she said, “so that’s the goal.” She also revealed which remaining act she’ll be rooting for: Josh Krajcik. “I think Josh has a really good chance of winning,” said Francis. “When he would sing, I would hear his tone, and I would be moved myself. I hope he goes all the way.”

"Rampart" Trailer

Cast: Woody Harrelson, Ned Beatty, Ben Foster, Anne Heche, Ice Cube, Cynthia Nixon, Sigourney Weaver, Robin Wright, Steve Buscemi

Los Angeles, 1999. Officer Dave Brown (two-time Academy Award(R) nominee Woody Harrelson) is a Vietnam vet and a Rampart Precinct cop, dedicated to doing "the people's dirty work" and asserting his own code of justice, often blurring the lines between right and wrong to maintain his action-hero state of mind. When he gets caught on tape beating a suspect, he finds himself in a personal and emotional downward spiral as the consequences of his past sins and his refusal to change his ways in light of a department-wide corruption scandal seal his fate. Brown internalizes his fear, anguish and paranoia as his world, complete with two ex-wives who are sisters, two daughters, an aging mentor dispensing bad advice, investigators galore, and a series of seemingly random women, starts making less and less sense. In the end, what is left is a human being stripped of all his pretense, machismo, chauvinism, arrogance, sexism, homophobia, racism, aggression, misanthropy; but is it enough to redeem him as a man?

Did Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' 99 cents giveaway inspire Billboard's new chart rules?

There was quite a bit of hemming and hawing back in May about the massive sales push that Lady Gaga’s Born This Way received when it was released.

The big controversy came when Amazon decided to use the album as a launching pad for its Cloud service and made the entirety of the record available for the low low price of 99 measly cents. Gaga ended up moving over one million units of Born This Way in its first week of release, though nearly half of those (around 440,000) came via the Amazon fire sale.

New Arrested Development Episodes coming to NETFLIX

Done deal: Netflix is bringing back cult classic Arrested Development.

The Bluth family’s new comedy adventures will be available exclusively through the video service — which outbid traditional TV venues to pick up the series — starting in the first half of 2013. Why, that’s like getting unlimited juice.

“After a long hiatus, I’m dying to finally get back to the narrator’s microphone,” said executive producer and series narrator Ron Howard. “Of all the projects we’ve been involved with over the years, we probably get more questions about Mitch Hurtwitz’s brilliant Arrested Development than any other — everyone, ourselves included, seems to feel like the Bluths left the party a bit too soon. Bringing a series back from cancellation almost never happens, but then, Arrested always was about as unconventional as they get, so it seems totally appropriate that this show that broke the mold is smashing it to pieces once again.”

Netflix has been muscling into the “TV” space this past year, also picking up a BBC drama for 2012 called House of Cards. For the Arrested Development deal, the DVD delivery and video streaming service bested another top bidder, Showtime, in contention for the acclaimed series, with Hulu also rumored to have been in the running.

Twentieth Century Fox Television and Imagine Television will produce the new episodes of the show. How many episodes? That’s not been announced yet.

Will all the cast members return? That’s not been announced either — no contracts have been finalized, we’re told. But certainly previous statements by the producers and cast indicate that everybody is, in theory, on board.

Will there still be the long-rumored movie? Also unclear. But if you’re getting the show back, and on service like Netflix that won’t presumably have any content restrictions anyway (unlike during the show’s original three-season run on Fox) — do we even need a movie?

In Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Bella becomes a supernatural version of Octomom

There are so many reasons why teenage girls hate their bodies that it's basically impossible to list them all. But Twilight: Breaking Dawn tries. The flick is basically a surreal, humiliating music video about teenage body panic. Every fleeting moment of self-hatred you've ever had about yourself is chronicled in excruciating detail here and I think that's why so many of us love to watch. It's also why we hate ourselves afterward.

Spoilers ahead!

In Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Bella becomes a supernatural version of Octomom But it took sometime arthouse director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters) to take this series from candy-guzzling PMS freakout into something dark and (literally) rotten. Sure, you can still take a kind of vicarious joy in Bella's princessy wedding which is genuinely pretty — and writer Melissa Rosenberg has managed to slip in a few good, snarky lines for Bella's friends. But about halfway through the movie, my ironic laughter stuck in my throat and I just started to feel nauseated. It wasn't just seeing Bella's anorexic pregnant body (more on that in a minute). It was realizing that Bella was growing into the most horrifying monster of all: a girl-woman with no drive to anything but feed her bottomless hunger for adoration, luxury, and attention. She's a supernatural version of Octomom.

A SEXTAPE Leaks . . . Shows GRAPHIC ACTS Between Chris Brown And A Basketball Wife!!! just got a PRIVATE SCREENING this morning, of a sextape which we're told is of CHRIS BROWN, and Basketball Wives LA star Draya.

The video, which we were only shown a SNIPPET of, was EXTREMELY GRAPHIC. The couple took turns holding the camera while they performed SEX ACTS on each other. In the part that we saw, Chris Brown used his mouth on Draya's BOOTYHOLE. Slurping it up, like we was drinking some HOT SOUP!!!

The owners of the video are asking $50K for the video. Too rich for our blood, but we're pretty sure that SOMEONE out there will buy it . . .


Larger than Life: Alan Rickman Stars in Seminar

In the market for bravura performances that capture the moral complexities and carnal magnetism of larger-than-life figures? Alan Rickman is your man. Over the years, his gift for inhabiting characters from the terrorist Hans Gruber in Die Hard to the sinister Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films has made him a movie star. But Rickman is also a superb stage actor. And now, nearly 25 years after his electrifying Broadway debut as the doomed seducer Valmont in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Rickman is playing another charming monster, in Theresa Rebeck’s nasty, funny new play Seminar, which opens November 20 at the Golden Theatre under the direction of the prodigious Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation).

Jessica Simpson: I’ve Learned from My Style Mistakes

Jessica Simpson may be one of the pros on NBC’s upcoming show Fashion Star, but she admits her own style choices haven’t always been the best.

“There are a lot of things I’ve worn and look back on and think, ‘Oh, my,’” the mom-to-be recently told PEOPLE. “When it comes to beauty, I think a big misconception is the tanner you are, the more beautiful you are. It’s not always true. I look back on a lot of pictures where I’m really tan, and I’m like, ‘Whoa!’”

But Simpson has only learned from her mistakes — and they’ve inspired her to strive to keep her Jessica Simpson line of shoes and apparel impeccable.

“I’m in all those meetings,” she said. “I know the zipper pulls, I know what you’re going to be purchasing next spring. I know what’s going to be trending. It’s really fun to take all those meetings and try and play great guessing games of what the public’s going to buy.”

Simpson, who said she’s a big fan of the current colorblocking trend, is also in the know when it comes to taking care of her skin. The former Proactiv spokeswoman recently teamed up with skincare expert Nerida Joy to introduce BeautyMint, an affordable, personalized line sold on the web.

“We go to department stores and we have no idea what these people are telling us,” Simpson said. “We just know to get the ‘it’ product because it’s working on this A-celebrity. It’s kind of like you’re spending too much money on something you don’t really know.”

BeautyMint requires taking a quiz to “get to know about your skin,” similar to JewelMint, StyleMint and ShoeMint, which tailor fashion offerings to a shopper’s style preferences. Simpson said the questionnaire “really acts as a professional, helping you, guiding you through your skincare regimen. It definitely will only give you products that work for your skin.”

Kristin Cavallari: I ‘Don’t Think’ I’ll Get Botox

She’s only 24 years old, but Kristin Cavallari definitely thinks about the future … of her face. “No one’s ever told me I needed to get a facelift or anything,” she tells “Never say never, but I don’t think I’ll ever get Botox because we don’t know the long-term side effects, and I just don’t think that can be good for you.”

In fact, the starlet has yet to cosmetically alter herself at all … teeth excluded. “The most I’ve done is Crest Whitestrips,” she jokes.

Cavallari, a practicing vegan (“Realistically it happens 50 percent of the time,” she says) who hits the gym at least four times a week, says she “craves” healthy food. “If I don’t eat healthy food, I don’t feel good,” she shares.

The starlet admits that her workouts — combined with a light diet and intense Dancing with the Stars training — did once take their toll. “At one point I got too skinny and my manager had to say something to me,” she reveals. But with DWTS behind her and a trainer helping her with cardio and weightlifting three times per week, she’s on a healthier track.

She’s sure to stay hydrated, too; the former Hills star says that “as cliché and old school as it is, I think drinking a lot of water really helps” keep skin clear — as does washing your face at night “no matter how tired you are.”

When she’s going glam, Cavallari prefers to use Armani foundation and mascara, NARS “Orgasm” blush and Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner (“It doesn’t move,” she raves). But for a day out in Los Angeles, her makeup is minimal. She shares, “The most I wear is a little bit of foundation and mascara.”


Become A Teen Movies Expert In Ten Easy Movies

Teen movies are much like real teenagers. Adults either fear them or sneer at them... but then go right ahead and copy their language, clothes and attitude. And as much as we love noirs, Westerns and sci-fi, few can lay a claim to being as resonant in our lives as the teen flick. After all, we've all agonised about asking our high-school crush out or bickered with our parents, but few of us have tried to rescue imperilled terraformers or shot Lee Van Cleef. With that in mind, Empire recruited Garry Mulholland, author of teen movie compendium Stranded At The Drive-In, to compile ten films that will enable you to master the genre. All deal with the most crucial phase of every person’s life; when raging hormones and the drive to ascend from childhood to adulthood make every event and emotion so dramatic and vivid that we can never entirely leave our teenage selves behind.

Juno (2007)

Director: Jason Reitman
As any director and actor will tell you, a movie is only as good as its script allows it to be. So this scabrous, poignant, politically charged and lovably hip comedy-drama wins top prize because it has the best screenplay of any movie of the last decade. First-time screenwriter Diablo Cody, whose only previous experience was a blog detailing her experiences as a stripper, presents, in Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page), the first teenage single mother in fiction history who is neither slut nor victim, moron nor scrounger. Instead, Juno is a counter-culture heroine, dealing with her One Big Mistake with waspish wit and cool logic as she offers her baby for adoption to unhappy middle-class couple Mark and Vanessa (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner). A perfect coming-of-age tale where vicious gags contrast with winsome indie-pop and feminist bonding. Page is simply astounding.

Why Nikki Reed Won’t Miss Her ‘Twilight’ Hair

Nikki Reed may be sad to put to rest her role as Rosalie Hale in the Twilight series, but the actress is more than happy to bid adieu to the vampire’s iconic blonde locks — and for good reason.

At the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part I premiere in Los Angeles Monday night, the newlywed told PEOPLE she had to sport a blonde wig for New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn after dying her hair for the original Twilight film. “Most of my hair fell out, which is why they wigged me,” she explained. “It’s hard on the hair.

“I don’t miss being a blonde,”
she continued. “I do miss Rosalie.”

Despite her bad experience with going blonde, Reed doesn’t discount the possibility of taking the plunge again in the future.

“Never say never — possibly for something else,” she said. “But it would have to be something I really love.”

Tell us: Have you ever had a bad hair coloring experience?

reality tv whore joe zee bans reality tv whores snooki & kimmy k from ELLE

While Kim Kardashian has had her share of magazine covers and Snooki herself appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone, it has been confirmed neither of the reality stars will be gracing Elle's cover anytime soon.

The fashion mag's creative director Joe Zee clarified his views on the issue:
"Listen, Kim is a big cover star out there and if Kim had something going on in her life right now...I just wish that she would do something, but she's not doing anything. If she actually did something, we would actually think about Kim for the cover. It's about new. It's not about, so much, a reality star. The idea is, are they newsworthy? Is it someone our readers want to read about?

As for Snooki, Zee simply said, "I'm going to have to pass on that one." The creative director went on to site their November cover girl, Jennifer Aniston, as a "ravishing" celeb with "incredible style." We couldn't agree more.


shut up asshole you've been in more reality shows than kim & snooki combined

‘The Expendables 2′ Poster: Just Call it ‘EX2′

I don’t have any belief that The Expendables 2 is likely to be the movie I hope it will be. After the first movie, I’m not even convinced that this sequel is fated to be a solid action movie. But magic can happen. While we wait to see any footage from the movie that Simon West has been directing in Bulgaria, here’s a poster that also acts as the best collage of aging action stars you’re going to see this year.

I can easily see some young action fan having made a similar version of this poster by collaging stills in the late ’80s or early ’90s. This one really ups the ante with leather, flying dirt and a lot of thousand-yard (well, maybe 400-yard for some of those guys) stares.

Dammit, that makes me want to see the movie. Here’s what we know about The Expendables 2:

Sylvester Stallone is joined by Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. They will all punch and/or shoot things. As the poster reveals, there is also at least one woman, Nan Yu, in the movie. She will evidently also shoot and/or punch things.

Adrien Brody, Tim Robbins cast in movie about 1942 Chinese famine famine + pics of cast promoting

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Actors Adrien Brody and Tim Robbins have joined director Xiaogang Feng’s new project about the Chinese famine of 1942, which resulted in the death of an estimated 1 million people. Though the movie does not yet have a title, Feng and his production partner, Huayi Brothers, say it will be based on the Liu Zhenyun novel Remembering 1942. The famine, unfortunately one of many in China’s history, took place during the second Sino-Japanese War from 1942 to 1943.

Feng is best known for his 2010 pic Aftershock, depicting the story of a family separated by a devastating earthquake in 1976 China. Aftershock earned him an Achievement in Directing nomination and a Best Film award at the 2010 Asia Pacific Screen Awards. Hit the jump for more on the project.

Variety reports that Feng had announced the project as early as April and planned to begin production this fall in order to release the pic in 2012. The novel focuses on the human crisis during the famine which evolved from a drought and governmental negligence due to the war. The story is set in the Henan province of central China, close to home for Zhenyun. Zhenyun had also written Cell Phone, off of which Feng based his 2003 film of the same name.

Brody was last seen in Midnight in Paris and is currently in production on Stigmata-director Rupert Wainwright’s Waco. Robbins played the villain opposite Ryan Reynolds in this year’s Green Lantern and is currently filming Thanks for Sharing with Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Why I Hate Penguins (In The Movies)

I have a reputation, around the Empire office, as a Penguin Hater. Someone actually stuck a sticker to that effect on the top of my monitor (and another on the back) lest I forget or try to live down said opinion. And with the release of Happy Feet 2 this week, I thought it might be worth discussing this prejudice and its causes and treatments.

(This is not an entirely serious blog, more discussing an Empire-significant phenomenon. Please bear that in mind before you start on the whole "OMG such a NOTHING issue" comments below.)

Beyond The Godfather: 5 Great Francis Ford Coppola Movies

The Godfather I & II remain two of the finest American films ever made, but are there Francis Ford Coppola movies that weave as fascinating a tale as the saga of the Corleone family? His other work may not have reached the masterpiece status of the mafia family saga, which landed the number spot in the American Film Institute's list of 100 Greatest Films, but very few films do. Coppola has had his share of painful productions ("Dracula") as well as forgettable features like "The Rainmaker" and "Godfather III." Still, his craftsmanship and ability to inspire brilliant acting make these five Francis Ford Coppola films worth a rental.

Next week’s American Horror Story episode, appropriately titled “Rubber Man,” reveals pretty much everything about the infamous character (and EW cover star). Before the opening credits, viewers will know who’s behind that rubber mask, and lemme tell ya it’s a doozy. The wild episode also reveals why Rubber Man has impregnated Vivien as well as the origins of his suit. In this exclusive clip, Zachary Quinto’s Chad goes shopping for some fetish gear to spice up his love life with estranged boyfriend Patrick (Teddy Sears). His purchase will be familiar to fans of American Horror Story, but don’t worry spoiler phobes: This clip doesn’t necessarily reveal Rubber Man’s identity. (Hint: things get even more twisted once he brings the suit home.) Watch here (can't be embedded, sry bbs)!

'The One That Got Away' reminded Stevie Nicks of her last fight with Lindsey Buckingham

Drape yourself in chiffon, throw on a half-moon pendant, dust off your crushed-velvet top hat and get ready to start twirling – Stevie Nicks kicks off the 10-date Australian leg of her In Your Dreams tour (with special guest Dave Stewart) in Melbourne this Saturday night. I talked to the rock legend in her Sydney hotel suite last week, and she was everything you’d expect: warm, chatty, peaceful, full of charm and ready to tell a great story.

Madison: You were recently heard narrating the teaser trailer for Katy Perry’s new video. How did you get involved with that?

SN: When I played at a party for the Emmys a few months ago, a reporter asked me which young singers I really wanted to work with, and I said Katy Perry. But I never thought that would amount to anything. I really love Katy – I’m proud of her. All of the songs on hew new record are amazing, but I especially loved the video for “E.T.” The first time I saw it, I was just so taken…whenever it comes on, I’m running to the television to watch it. Her people called me about the video for her new single. I said I’d love to be a part of it. Floria Sigesmundi, the director, came to my house and showed it to me but right before, I had to stop her and warn her that I am not a good actress. Ever since the fourth grade, when I played one of two surviving women at The Alamo in a school play, I’ve known that.

Madison: Really? You knew back then that acting wasn’t your strong suit?

SN: I went home and said to my mum, “Mum, never again. I can sing, but I can’t act. Don’t ever let me go out for a play again!” So I told them this might not work. Anyway, they showed me the video, and about a minute in, I just began to cry. It reminded me of my own life and losses, and of the last fight that Lindsey Buckingham and I had. By the time it ended, I said, “Well, that’s just the saddest thing I’ve ever seen!” That was exactly the reaction she wanted. So she handed me the type-written pages and I read my lines. It was an amazing experience. And did you know that if this song hits number one [on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US], she will have six number ones off an album, which would break Michael Jackson’s record? That would be amazing – because she is 26 and she is a woman. I’d love to help her do that. I mean, it’s like, “We love you, Michael! We’re sorry, but we’re rolling over you now! We’re on your tail here.”

Madison: Do you think you’ll end up recording with her at some point?

SN: Maybe. She wasn’t there that night. She was in Europe onstage and she sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and wrote me a really beautiful note. I’m sure I’ll meet her soon. This will bond us, and I’m sure we will become really good friends because of this.

One of the best interviews she's done in a long time. Props to the interviewer for interesting questions, and to Stevie for giving interesting responses. Queen of everything.

Nick Jonas accepts DREAM award

Extraordinary Individuals Honored At Franklin D. Roosevelt Inaugural Dinner November 17, 2011 in Los Angeles

The Disability Rights Legal Center (DRLC) whose mission is to champion the rights of people with disabilities through education, advocacy and litigation, held its annual Franklin D. Roosevelt Dinner on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at the Omni Hotel, 251 South Olive Street in downtown Los Angeles. The fundraiser honors distinguished excellence in corporate diversity, health advocacy and efforts towards the promotion of the rights of people with disabilities.

For public service and advocacy efforts, the DREAM Award (Disability Rights in Entertainment, Arts & Media) Award was presented to Nick Jonas, the singer-songwriter, musician and actor best known as one of the Jonas Brothers and for the hit song “A Little Bit Longer,” about his personal struggle with type 1 diabetes. “For someone listening, it can be about whatever struggle is going on in their own life,” says Jonas, who was diagnosed at age 13 in 2005. Jonas strongly believes in the rights of people with all types of disabilities and advocates for increased health related research and government funding
