Jennifer Lawrence Kicks Off 'Hunger Games' Mall Tour

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth pose together as they kick off The Hunger Games U.S. Mall Tour at Westfield Century City on Saturday (March 3) in Los Angeles.

The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins recently posted a glowing review of the film based on her book on her Facebook page.

“I’ve just had the opportunity to see the finished film of The Hunger Games. I’m really happy with how it turned out,” Suzanne wrote. “I feel like the book and the film are individual yet complementary pieces that enhance one another. The film opens up the world beyond Katniss’ point of view, allowing the audience access to the happenings of places like the Hunger Games control room and President Snow’s rose garden, thereby adding a new dimension to the story.”

“And, my God, the actors. The cast, led by the extraordinary Jennifer Lawrence, is absolutely wonderful across the board. It’s such a pleasure to see how they’ve embodied the characters and brought them to life,” Suzanne added about the cast.

One Direction's first performance without Zayn Malik

ONE Direction take to the stage as a quartet - after Zayn Malik was forced to fly home from the band's US tour following a death in his family.

Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson confidently performed at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut minus their boyband pal.

Zayn, 19, flew home on Wednesday following news of the sudden death of his aunt.

He is expected to rejoin the tour at a later date, after spending some time with his family and attending the funeral.

Splash Bandmate Harry Styles tweeted:
"Zayn has suffered a loss in his family & has had to go home for a few days so won't be at our next shows in the US. "Our thoughts are with him and his family at this sad time."

The message was retweeted by bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne.

And support from One Direction's huge fan base started to flood in for the bereaved star.

One anecdote he retweeted read: "God has no Phone, but I talk to him. He has no Facebook, but he is still my friend. He does not have a twitter, but I still follow him. "

One Direction are on tour in the states as a support act for fellow boyband Big Time Rush.

Hollywood actor John Cusack has said he would star in a sequel to the 1997 action thriller Con Air.

The star, who played US Marshal Vince Larkin in the film, told the BBC News website making a second film "would be fun".

"I'll do it, but no one's offered it to me," Cusack added.

Director Simon West said last year he was keen to make a sequel and reunite Cusack with co-stars Nicholas Cage and John Malkovich.

"It'd be great. It's a matter of getting everybody together," West said, at the time.

John Cusack has compared his film career to a successful baseball player.

The actor has appeared in a wealth of successful Hollywood movies. However, the star remains modest about his achievements.

“I think it’s like 63 or something. I said 10 or 20 are good,” he confirmed when asked about once saying he only thought 10 of his movies were first-rate.

“In baseball, if you hit three balls out of ten, you’re a star, right?” he smiled. “I like The Raven, High Fidelity. Being John Malkovich was a good one.” (aw)

A Timeline of Lindsay's Many Professional 'Last Chances'

Even by Lindsay Lohan standards, 2011 was a rough year, as the starlet spent most of her time hopping among court, court-mandated community service, jail, and the Playboy offices. As you know if you have ever glanced at Us Weekly, Lohan’s legal and behavioral issues have made her almost unemployable, and she has taken to starring in weird art films and New Zealand airline commercials (plus, of course, Playboy) to pay the bills. But according to Lohan, that all ends this weekend, when she’ll host Saturday Night Live and prove to the world that she’s ready to work again. Or, as her naysayers predict, she’ll host Saturday Night Live and prove that she’s an unsalvageable train wreck. It's being painted as a make-or-break appearance, a last-ditch effort to save a flailing career, and this all feels very familiar. Because the truth of the matter is that over the past six years, Lindsay Lohan has had many last chances, each one hyped that way. Every new Lindsay Lohan movie announcement is her giant "comeback," and then it always flames out. She is almost refreshingly reliable in this respect! So in case this weekend doesn't go as planned, Vulture now presents a brief history lesson on all Lindsay Lohan's many attempted career revivals, to remind you that this happens all the time. She’ll be back. It might be on QVC, but she’ll still be here.

Pro hockey players fight homophobia with ‘You Can Play’ campaign

Thirty players in the National Hockey League have joined a campaign intended to promote gay and lesbian equality in sports with a television ad that will premiere during Sunday’s matchup of the New York Rangers and Boston Bruins.

The campaign, called “You Can Play,” aims to combat what its organizers call an atmosphere of “casual homophobia” in locker rooms, in which slurs are carelessly used, creating a difficult atmosphere for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender athletes.

Gabriel Aubry wants Halle to get him an expensive house.

Gabriel Aubry wants his 3-year-old daughter Nahla to live in surroundings to which she has become accustomed ... and he wants Halle to pay dearly for it.

TMZ has learned what Gabriel wants in the way of $$$ -- and it's a lot. We've learned Aubry has filed legal docs asking the family law judge to force Halle to give him $15,000 - $20,000 a month for a proper home.

Gabriel has also asked for a laundry list of other things from Halle, including what we're told is a "very large" amount of money for the little girl's clothing, as well as money to take the child to Canada to visit his family.

We're told Halle is fighting Gabriel tooth and nail on his request. The hearing on the money issues was scheduled for Monday, but it's now been put off until April 9, in part because the family law judge wants to see what the dependency judge does to Gabriel.

If the dependency judge takes away some of Gabriel's custody rights, it would have an impact on any child support Halle would have to fork over.

Cheryl Cole to return with Calvin Harris-produced smash for 3rd album

Queen Cheryl “Chezza” Cole, she of The Almighty Aloud and X Factor GIFs aplenty, recently put the finishing touches on her third studio album, which is due out later in 2012.

Now, the pop beans have been spilled by Sunday Mirror columnist Dean Piper, who confirmed earlier today that “We Found Love” hit-maker Calvin Harris worked with Cheryl on “a dance classic” which will likely act as the lead single from the upcoming campaign. (There’s also talk of on the song, which is just…)

No. Let’s not get sad. If Cheryl can survive malaria, we can survive

Focus on Cheryl and Calvin. Dream of the possibilities. At best, we’ll get something as bright and shimmering as RiRi‘s “We Found Love” and “Where Have You Been,” Kylie Minogue‘s “In My Arms” or Sophie Ellis-Bextor/Róisín Murphy‘s “Off & On.” At worst, we’ll just get a reductive carbon copy of “We Found Love,” which would still be objectively amazing.

From what I’ve heard from my own sources, this is one of Cheryl’s biggest records yet, and it could even spell out an opportunity to dominate worldwide. 2012: Year of the Cole?

Ultimate Fighter's Gay Porn Past

The Internet is buzzing this week with the news that straight, rising cage fighter Dakota Cochrane is a former gay-for-pay porn star with ties to San Diego.

Cochrane, aka Danny from Sean Cody Films, is one of 32 finalists named this week to compete on the FX reality show, “The Ultimate Fighter Live.”

The Nebraska native made 16 films for Sean Cody Films, which is based in San Diego. Danny appeared in such titles as “Danny & Terry,” “Danny Ford,” “Danny’s Toys,” “Nicolas & Danny,” “Danny & Billy,” “Parker, Billy & Danny,” “Danny & Cole” and other titles too explicit for general audiences.

But Cochrane told that he regretted his actions. “Every time I was down there [shooting at Sean Cody Films in San Diego], I hated it,” he said.

“It’s definitely a decision I regret,” Cochrane told MMA Fighting. “If I would have known what would happen I definitely wouldn’t have done it. But I had money issues and I needed help. I went there to do pictures, and they started throwing pretty high numbers in front of me. I didn’t really think. It was a big mistake.”

Cochrane, 25, apparently fully informed UFC about his porn past, and that didn’t stop him from earning a contract.

While at the University of Nebraska-Kearney, Cochrane was a track team member who ran the 4x100 meter relay and pole vaulted.

"Gotta Tell You" Singer Samantha Mumba Gets Married!

Six months after announcing her engagement, "Gotta Tell You" singer Samantha Mumba tied the knot with Torray Scales in L.A. Friday, Us Weekly can confirm.

The bride, whose other hits include "Baby Come On Over" and "I'm Right Here," wore a strapless mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline. The Irish pop star wore her hair up and carried a white bouquet of roses. Mumba's younger brother, Omero, escorted her down the aisle.

A source tells Us the ceremony was delayed an hour as the party waited for family members to arrive.

Scales, a police officer, popped the question on June 26 in Newport Beach, Calif. "It was very romantic and special," Mumba, 29, told Us in August. "It's the happiest we've both ever been."

In addition to her music career, Mumba has also appeared in several films, including The Time MachineSpin the Bottle and Boy Eats Girl.

'She's done': Lindsay Lohan Saturday Night Live spot gets brutally critiqued on Twitter

In the modern world of social networking people can post their reaction to events almost instantaneously.

Perhaps the most damning statement was one of the most economical.

Ex-WWE Wrestling Star Doug Furnas Passes Away at the Age of 50

The professional wrestling community is mourning another death . This time for ex WWE tag team wrestler Doug Furnas. Furnas worked for Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment organization in 1996 with long time partner Phil Lafon. Furnas also labored for Extreme Championship Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, and gained most of his notoriety in All-Japan Pro Wrestling. In the last several years, Furnas has been battling Parkinson's Disease. Although the cause of death is not known currently, Furnas joins the extensive list of wrestling casualties who passed away before the age of 50.

Over the last 15 years, professional wrestling has confronted tough scrutiny because of the number of untimely deaths the sport has seen. Since 2000, the wrestling community has seen 34 wrestlers under the age of 50 pass away from several causes. Although the number is truly significant, unlike most critics, I don't condemn the wrestling business (see pro wrestling's 7 most shocking deaths).

Lindsay Lohan's Return to 'Saturday Night Live': Road to Redemption

Lindsay Lohan and Jack White on ‘Saturday Night Live’: The Best Bits.

Lindsay Lohan is at the point in her career where every move she makes is considered a comeback attempt. Last night the actress appeared on “Saturday Night Live” with musical guest Jack White. The latter’s appearance was reason enough to tune in, but the extra incentive to watch was basically to see if Lohan would hold it together for an entire show (her opening monologue was based around that theme).
Remember, Lohan, when she’s on her game, is fully capable of delivering a solid comic performance–she was quite good in such movies as “Mean Girls,” “The Parent Trap,” and “Freaky Friday,” and if you don’t think she was, well, you’re just being a hater. On last night’s “SNL,” she didn’t have any real breakout moments on the show, but there were a couple skits worth watching, including a sketch sending up the Real Housewives Franchise along with the Disney Princesses. White, in his performances, rocked.

The Wanted Fell Homesick When On Tour

The Wanted miss their English comforts

The Wanted might have hit it stateside, but it seems they have missed home turf.

"They have potatoes with red onion on your breakfast with eggs, I'm like what's this! Where's the beans?" said band member Tom Parker on missing his traditional English fry up.

The band added that female fans across the Atlantic are a lot more enthusiastic about waiting around to see them than their British cousins, who seem less impressed.

The Wanted’s Glad You Came has smashed American sales, making the boys the highest charting UK boy band in the US charts, beating the likes of Take That.

The group have made it to number five after picking up a massive boost in sales following the inclusion of the song in hit show Glee.

The Wanted, who have just finished their US tour, will raise their profile even more this month when they perform live on the Jay Leno show.

Oreo Cookies Turn 100! Plus Wacky Oreo Flavors from Foreign Countries

If there's one single cookie that makes us think of childhood, it's definitely the Oreo. Known as "milk's favorite cookie," these creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies are considered the best-selling cookie brand of the twenty first century, making $1.5 billion in worldwide revenues. Whether you "twist, lick and dunk" them or just eat them as they are, Oreo cookies have been a part of Americans' lives for 100 years -- and March 6 happens to be Oreo's 100th birthday (Oreo is celebrating with it's new birthday cake flavored version). But did you know Oreos are popular around the world? And they come in some pretty intense international flavors.

Designed to compete with British biscuit cookies, Oreos were introduced in New York on March 6, 1912. By the mid 1990s, Oreos were selling in 30 countries. In China, Oreos have been sold since 1996, eventually becoming the country's best-selling cookie in 2006. You can now find Oreo cookies in more than 100 countries all over the world. And these nations feature flavors that go way beyond just the original-flavored Oreo cookies -- there are even some flavors designed to taste like ice cream.

Azealia Banks Flaunts Figure in T Magazine

Azealia Banks is racking up her press clips. The Harlem-born rapper, who calls herself the “Young Rapunxel,” graces the fashion pages of The New York Times’ T Magazine, pulling her pigtails while posing for famed photographer Terry Richardson in a $1200 Rochas bodysuit and Dolce & Gabbana heels. The “212” singer, whose debut album Broke with Expensive Taste is due in September, spoke about her atypical upbringing and buzz overseas.

“We lived in Harlem just, like, at the beginning of its gentrification…but my mom had our apartment since she was 18, she worked a retail job, but she worked on commission, so she made like, maybe, 75 or $80,000 a year, but our rent was so cheap since it was, like, rent-controlled, so our rent was, like, $300 a month for a two-bedroom apartment, so we always had extra money,” she told the magazine.

“I grew up very spoiled…like I had everything: I had computers, I had video games, I had dress-up clothes, I had lipstick, I had heels—not like, actual heels, play heels—I had dolls, I had birds, I had hamsters—my mom did a really good job of keeping me stimulated.”

The 20-year-old Banks has been living in London while recording her album and has quickly been embraced by fashion’s elite including designer Karl Lagerfeld. “Europe and the U.K. have just been sucking me up,” she said.

Crocoduck's homophobia explained


[BlindGossip] There is an area in Griffith Park where you can take the kiddies for a train ride. A certain actor used to enjoy taking men for another kind of ride in the same area. He would cruise the park, pick up a guy, and then hook up with them in his car. The really ironic thing here is that the actor is so religious that when he was a teen heartthrob (a couple of decades ago) he used to insist that any dialogue that was even the slightest bit sexual or profane be removed from his lines because they violated his sense of decency. He’s all grown up now, but we’re sure his wife really appreciates what a moral man she married.

Madonna's Boyfriend Proposes?

Madonna's 24-year-old boyfriend Brahim Zaibat has proposed marriage to her, but she has yet to give him a response.

The 53-year-old singer - who has been dating the 24-year-old French dancer since 2010 - is still considering her response, and although the twice-married star has previously said she would rather get ''hit by a train'' than marry again, she is giving it serious thought.

A source told the Mail on Sunday: ''Brahim asked Madonna to marry him at a Kabbalah Centre a few weeks ago, but Madonna hasn't given him an answer yet.

''She doesn't want to rush into anything. She is very happy with Brahim, although her friends are not sure she is ready for marriage again. That said, Madonna has a real fear of being on her own. It's a major issue for her, and she loves having a man in her life who is young and makes her feel young.''

Madonna - who has previously been wed to Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie - has previously said she would love to be ''swept off her feet'' again.

She said: ''Every girl wants to be swept off her feet by a knight in shining armour. Even if we are sophisticated, intelligent, evolved human beings, we like to think in the back of our minds that Mr. Right is going to sweep us off our feet and take us into the sunset, and we're going to live happily ever after.''

Rihannas Collaboration With Chris Brown Was Not For 'Shock' Factor

Rihanna did not record songs with Chris Brown to 'shock' the public, according to a close friend. More! Magazine reports that Rihanna may have stirred controversy when deciding to team up with her ex-boyfriend, but it wasn't intentional.

Recent reports have suggested that she may have rekindled her romance with Brown through her tweets and having spent Valentine's Day together.

The pair even appeared on remixes of each other's tracks last month. However according to a source, Rihanna did the duets to send out a message: 'She'll have recorded with Chris not to shock but to remind the world that he's paid his dues and moved on, and that he's a very talented singer. I think she feels strongly that one bad moment in his life should not define who he is forever'.

The source did further elaborate that a romance was probably not the case though: 'Rihanna has talked it over with JAY-Z and other friends and everyone's telling her it would be a great idea to move to London. On one hand, I'm sure she wants Chris back, but on the other, she must realise she's a role model to young girls and simply can't take back a boyfriend who beat her. The best way to avoid temptation is to remove yourself from it altogether.'

The couple split up three years ago after Brown physically attacked Rihanna and Brown had to face charges. Rihanna recently won 'International Female' for the second year running at this year's Brit Awards.
