Full Trailer For HBO's 'The Girl'

Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller) was an unknown young model when director Alfred Hitchcock (Toby Jones) cast her as the lead in The Birds, his surreal 1963 avian-apocalypse thriller. The two had an infamously tense working relationship, with Hedren later alleging that Hitchcock ruined her career when she refused his sexual advances. Based on the just-released trailer, it will feature enough recreations of famous movie sequences to satisfy the film buff crowd.

Pet Shop Boys interview: 'One Direction are really good popstars'‎

What was it like to play the Olympics Closing Ceremony?
Neil: "I liked the collage of music that was going on."
Chris: "I thought the whole thing was going to be like that, I was a bit disappointed when it broke into a more regular sort of concert. I like the whole seguing of different acts from different eras. Ours was all about London, wasn't it?"
Neil: "We were the London section, yes... A lot of people didn't realise that! People were saying, 'They're doing 'West End Girls' again'. We're doing 'West End Girls' because it's a London song!"
Chris: "Otherwise we would have been doing the new single."

Like George Michael! Was that an option for you?
Chris: "Well, ours would have been appropriate!"
Neil: "It would have been possible for us to say, 'Sorry, we're not going to be able to do 'West End Girls' unless 'Winner' is prominently featured, because we're going to bring it out the next day'. We could have done that and then they would have decided whether they needed us enough for that or not - or told us to get lost. But only one person on the evening did that..."
Chris: "It was fun, being whisked around the Olympic Stadium with a pointy hat on."
Neil: "I think it was an honour. All that British music - you keep thinking of all the people who weren't in it."

One Direction were on just after you - what did you make of them?
Neil:: "I quite like One Direction's records. I think they're really good popstars. They seem to be very big. Being a popstar you have no idea how much hard work it is. When we first started we used to do all the teeny stuff but One Direction worked. I don't know how they put up with it. We would have just thrown a wobbler.
We met them actually, and had our picture taken with them. And they were really gracious and nice and funny and chatty. Not like, 'Who are these old guys?'"
Chris: "'Why are we having our picture taken with two old men in pointy hats? Who are they?!'"
Neil: "I was quite impressed by them."

The Voice Premiere Sneak Peek

The ratings war with X Factor begins tonight.

If one is good, two must be better, right? That must be the thinking of the team behind "The Voice," which is preparing for its first fall season tonight.

As usual, coaches Christina Aguilera, 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Best Pop Video nominee Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton will be facing off against another reality singing competition. Only this time instead of staring down the fading-but-still-formidable "American Idol" they'll be duking it out with the second season of ex-"Idol" baddie Simon Cowell's "X Factor."

But don't think they're coming back with the same old bag of tricks. Producers have thrown a bunch of curveballs
 into the mix this time around, including a new wrinkle that will allow coaches to steal players from their fellow stars' teams.

Christina Milian has a sneak peek of tonight's episode.

Legendary WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler Suffers Heart Attack Live on the air

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

(CNN) -- Wrestling legend and World Wrestling Entertainment announcer Jerry "The King" Lawler has been hospitalized after collapsing during a show in Montreal on Monday night, the show's producers announced.

"Lawler suffered a heart attack while commentating during last night's broadcast of Monday Night Raw in Montreal," a statement on WWE's website said. "We are hopeful Jerry makes a full recovery and returns to WWE in the near future. Our thoughts are with Jerry and his family."

Lawler passed out at ringside and was given CPR in the locker room of the arena before being taken to a hospital, co-host Michael Cole told viewers during a break in the televised program. Cole said the 62-year-old Lawler was in the emergency room and breathing on his own, but "this is an extremely serious situation."

"This is not part of tonight's entertainment," Cole said. "This is a real-life situation."

Later in the program, Cole said Lawler was responding to tests and would be given a CT scan at the hospital, adding, "Jerry, my friend, my prayers are with you."

Lawler made his name in wrestling in the 1970s, winning multiple regional championships in Memphis, Tennessee, and the Mid-South Wrestling circuit. But he became famous beyond the wrestling world for a 1982 bout with comedian Andy Kaufman.

Kaufman, who had begun wrestling women during his nightclub act, accepted a challenge from Lawler and trash-talked both the wrestler and Memphis before the match. The 6-foot, 243-pound Lawler trounced the skinny comedian, who was hauled away in a stretcher.

A few weeks later, the pair appeared on "Late Night with David Letterman" and got into an argument that ended with Lawler slapping Kaufman, followed by Kaufman delivering a profanity-laced tirade and being chased off the set.

But like much of Kaufman's shtick, the feud was an elaborate put-on.

"They'd be at the coliseum, supposedly trying to kill each other, and then I'd get off the 10 o'clock newscast and walk into the newsroom, and Jerry and Andy would be sitting in an edit booth discussing what had happened and where to go from there," veteran Memphis wrestling announcer Dave Brown told CNN earlier this year.

Lawler was inducted into the Connecticut-based WWE's Hall of Fame in 2007 and played himself in the 1999 Kaufman biopic "Man on the Moon."

UPDATE: Jerry's ex wife, former WWE Diva Stacy "The Kat/Miss Kitty" Carter tweeted about an hour ago: "Just got a @JerryLawler update. He had a stint & a balloon put in. Right now he is still heavily sedated. Will update when I know more"

Did Chris Brown Tattoo Rihanna On His Neck?

Chris Brown insists his brand new neck tattoo is NOT a bizarre homage to Rihanna -- but if you look closely, the resemblance is uncanny.

The last photo we've seen of Chris without the tat is dated August 30th and the above photo was taken on September 1st, so CB got the ink job at some point between those two dates ... nearly a week before Rihanna kissed him at the MTV VMAs.

Oprah on the set of 'The Butler'

Oprah Winfrey hasn't taken it easy for her first lead major screen appearance since 1998's The Beloved.

The chat show host has landed a leading role in Lee Daniel's eagerly awaited epic The Butler, playing a woman who ages from 22 to 90 years old throughout the movie.

It's not clear whether another actress will play the character in her younger year or Daniel will use special effects, but the 59-year-old will certainly play her as an aging lady.

The iconic TV star was seen being transformed into a glitzed up grandmother for the part of Gloria Gaines, the wife of White House butler Cecil - played by Forest Whitaker.

Mandy Patinkin calls Criminal Minds "biggest public mistake I ever made".

The actor - who currently appears in Showtime's Homeland - told New York Magazine that joining the violent CBS drama in 2005 was the "biggest public mistake I ever made".

"I thought [the show] was something very different," said Patinkin, who left Criminal Minds after two seasons in 2007. "I never thought they were going to kill and rape all these women every night, every day, week after week, year after year.

"It was very destructive to my soul and my personality. After that, I didn't think I would get to work in television again."

However, the 59-year-old Princess Bride star defended the violence in his current show Homeland, on which he plays CIA operative Saul.

"I'm not making a judgment on the taste [of people who watch crime procedurals]," he insisted. "But I'm concerned about the effect it has. Audiences all over the world use this programming as their bedtime story. This isn't what you need to be dreaming about.

"A show like Homeland is the antidote. It asks why there's a need for violence in the first place."

Criminal Minds enters its eighth season on September 26, on CBS in the US. The series airs on Sky Living in the UK.

Who Won Masterchef?

Was it the Blind Chef or the Basketballer?

Tonight on Masterchef, the season three winner was revealed, earning him or her a cookbook deal, a $250,000 prize, and the title of Masterchef.

For the finale, Ha and Marks prepared a three-course meal for the judges: reality-show sadist Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur Joe Bastianich and chef Graham Elliott.

Josh fought his way back into the competition earlier in the season after being given an unprecedented opportunity to come back after his elimination. It wasn’t handed to him, however, as he had to beat out other former contestants as the only home cook worthy of returning to the Masterchef competition.

Christine has been viewed as somewhat of an underdog all season long, especially by herself, mainly due to her disability. As Masterchef’s first ever blind contestant, Christine has fought hard throughout the competition to earn the respect of her fellow contestants as a legitimate contender for the Masterchef title.

Angelina Jolie meets with Syrian refugees in Jordan

With Syria's refugee crisis reaching epic proportions, actress and U.N. special envoy Angelina Jolie visited displaced residents Tuesday at a camp in Jordan. The trip draws attention to the plight of the hundreds of thousands of Syrians who have fled their country during 18 months of relentless bloodshed. More than 81,000 refugees have escaped to Jordan, and many more have fled to neighboring Turkey, Lebanon and Iraq.

"I am grateful to Jordan and the border countries for saving the lives (of those) who are dying in Syria. It's an extraordinary thing," Jolie said at the Zaatari Refugee Camp in Mafraq. She relayed horror stories of what children said they witnessed, such as body parts that had been pulled apart "like chicken."

"We encourage the international community to support the people here until one day they go back home," Jolie said. But the flood of refugees has tested the capacity of neighboring countries. "Jordan has already reached its limit in absorbing the refugee influx, and what is needed now is to build more refugee camps for the Syrian refugees," Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said. "We have limited means, but this is the land of the good people and we will share with them whatever we have, no matter how little is."

Smashed trailer: Starring Aaron Paul & Mary Elizabeth Winstead

"Last night I ended up smoking crack." The Sundance drama “Smashed” starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul received rave reviews earlier this year, especially for the performances of both lead actors. Paul may be best known as "Breaking Bad" co-star Jesse Pinkman, but while Charlie also likes his vices a bit too much, his performance -- loving, gentle, lightly hammered -- is in a very different key than his work there."

Now the trailer and a new poster have arrived. Here's the official synopis as well:
Kate and Charlie like to have a good time. Their marriage thrives on a shared fondness for music, laughter... and getting smashed. When Kate's partying spirals into hard-core asocial behavior, compromising her job as an elementary schoolteacher, something's got to give. But change isn't exactly a cakewalk. Sobriety means she will have to confront the lies she's been spinning at work, her troubling relationship with her mother, and the nature of her bond with Charlie.

"Smashed" is due in theaters October 12 and just recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.


NBC Airs Kardashian Interview on Breast Implants Instead of 9/11 Moment of Silence: I can't

This morning, eleven years from September 11, 2001, there was a moment of silence in Washington, D.C. and New York City at 8:46 a.m., when the first plane hit the towers. Most news networks, including ABC, CBS, Fox, MSNBC, and CNN, interrupted programming to honor the anniversary, breaking the quiet only with an extra solemn rendition of "Taps." Locally, WNBC cut into the Today show with 9/11 coverage, but nationally, NBC trucked right through with an interview of Keeping Up With the Kardashians mom Kris Jenner. "Is there ever a time when you're like, Okay, we can turn those cameras off now?" host Savannah Guthrie asked, fittingly, about Jenner's televised breast augmentation. "I thought it was such a great idea to film that," Jenner said. Cue "Taps." America.

1. Which tennis star is raising eyebrows courtside as her voice seems to be getting lower and lower? Onlookers suggest it might be in the same method as the women shot putters of East Germany used to practice. PopBitch
My Guess: Serena Williams. The embolism for which she had surgery last year is a side effect of steroid use.... and it doesn't help her case that she locked herself in a panic room when a drug tester came to her house last year claiming she thought he was an "intruder." She hasn't been drug tested without advance notice in a loooooong time.

2. These television co-hosts always seem to get along so well that we were shocked to find out that one really can’t stand the other. Cohost 1 has told her boss that working with Cohost 2 is “beneath me”, that the show “has become ridiculous”, and that she is “losing credibility every minute” she is on air. She is a true professional, though, so don’t expect her personal feelings to translate on the screen. She will put on a smile and do her job as always. Blind Gossip
My Guess: Hoda and Kathie Lee

3. This Rocker has always had a reputation as a ladies man. It once cost him a marriage, but is he now creepin’ with a married Songbird? Downfront2
My Guess: Lenny Kravitz creepin on Mariah Carey

4. This music guy is in big trouble. Although he has had an impressive number of hits over the past 10+ years, he never got the hang of managing his money. He is now so broke that he is turning to his famous ex for a handout. Unfortunately, she’s not exactly jumping up to help him. She’s been down this road with him before, she knows that they don’t belong together, and she’s not going to spend another penny of her own millions to bail him out of trouble again. Blind Gossip

Moffat-gate Continues: Martin Freeman's Partner Receives Death Threats For Defending Moffat

Right. After this long winded tweet, I am putting this to bed once and for all. I am now receiving death threats. Some people want to kill me because I stuck up for a friend. Death threats. I mean, really? Are you serious? Some nameless, faceless cowards actually want me to die. What a wonderful world we live in. And all because of this: I don’t think Steven Moffat a misogynist. I don’t think he is a homophobe. What he is, is a thoroughly decent man, who, in my opinion, writes high quality drama that is hugely popular and continues to win awards. In my opinion. What I witnessed the other week was cyber-bullying at its most rampant.

Now, I consider myself a feminist. I am the first to champion women and I happen to work in an incredibly male-dominated profession where good, challenging, stand-out women’s roles are still dwarfed by the huge amount of amazing men’s roles. And where women still have to fight to be taken seriously and keep their clothes on. I am also a mother, first and foremost and I juggle those two careers precariously. Women are made to feel guilty for having children, not having children, working for a living, getting married, staying single, usually by other women, I hasten to add. I have been a professional actor for nearly twenty years and in that time I have been on the receiving end of misogynist behaviour more times than you can possibly imagine. I was sticking up for a friend, who, I felt had been bullied.

Now, if you don’t like Doctor Who or Sherlock or indeed, any of Steven Moffat’s writing then don’t watch it. If it upsets you to the point of sending him death threats, then don’t watch it. Be constructive, please, of course, I am all for that but when that criticism turns ugly (and I stress, the stuff I read had become incredibly offensive) then constructive criticism goes out the window and it becomes very personal and frightening. Last time I checked, death-threats were not in the least bit constructive. I have recently just tried to stick up for a young actress who was being harangued on Twitter. It amounts to the same thing. Faceless bullying again. And it is in no way constructive.

I sincerely apologise if I came across too strong with some of you. Twitter tends to have that effect on people. The internet can be a fantastic place or Hell on earth. My reaction, in hindsight, may have been a knee-jerk reaction. Maybe that’s because I was horrendously bullied as a child and so any sort of injustice and cowardly attack is heightened to me. Or maybe, I was defending a friend who has contributed to British drama more than any one of the people who were cussing him last week. You see, you all have a remote control. You can always switch off. Just an idea…

TL;DR There is no evidence that Moffat was getting death threats but it looks like Amanda definatly did.  
Regardless of how you feel about Steven Moffat and his writting or Amanda's tweet's after the twitter deleating incedent I think we can all agree death threats are unacceptable can't we?

Note: I added in the paragraphs since the twitlonger was a bit 'wall of text-y'.

Lizzy Caplan Becomes a Leading Lady

With her sidesplitting performance in the over-the-top wedding comedy Bachelorette—plus a slew of other wildly different roles—the actress goes from droll sidekick to breakout star.

With her sly smile and dancing green eyes, Lizzy Caplan is alluring even when delivering a withering put-down. That's something she does often, with a trademark deadpan: In roles ranging from the spurned friend in Mean Girls who tells Lindsay Lohan she smells "like a baby prostitute" to the hard-ass lawyer on New Girl who calls out Zooey Deschanel for her "Bluebirds help me dress in the morning" persona, Caplan has been upbraiding leading ladies for almost a decade. Now the 30-year-old Los Angeles native has become a leading lady herself, thanks to a smorgasbord of new projects. As a promiscuous, coked-out bridesmaid in this month's raunchy comedy Bachelorette, she describes her personal fellatio-ranking system—"Ten being I'm, you know, choking"—to a random dude on a plane, a bit that's destined to become legendary. "If people start saying things to me on the street from the blow-job monologue—yikes," Caplan says. "My poor dad." She also plays a basket case who accidentally makes a sex tape in the indie 3, 2, 1 . . . Frankie Go Boom, also out this month; a commitmentphobe torn between suitors in the December rom-com Save the Date; and a controversial sexologist in Showtime's historical drama Masters of Sex, premiering next year. "Lots of people only know my . . . biting characters," Caplan admits. "But I know I can do more than that. If you want to just do the same thing, don't be an actor."

Label boss confirms Chad Kroeger and fiancé Avril Lavigne have recorded an album together

Record label boss LA Reid says Lavigne's new album will be dropping later this year

Avril Lavigne and her fiancé Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger have recorded material together for her new album, Epic Records boss LA Reid has revealed. 

Lavigne has spent the last year working on the follow-up to her 2011 album 'Goodbye Lullaby' and Reid has confirmed that she and Kroeger recorded together for the record. 

Speaking to Billboard, Reid said of Lavigne's new album and when it would be out: "She worked with Chad Kroeger, who is now her fiance, and they did a really good record."

He continued: "We're in the mixing process now and I expect to release it very soon. I'd like to get it out this year, but time seems to be flying. If we don't, it will be top of the new year."

This is the second time Lavigne has recorded extensively with her partner after her ex-husband and Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley produced six songs on 'Goodbye Lullaby'. They split up in 2009. 

Last month, a spokeswoman for the couple, who have been dating for six months, confirmed that Kroeger and Lavigne plan to marry and got engaged earlier this month. 

Reid himself returns to the judging panel on The X Factor USA tomorrow (September 12) as part of a new-look line-up that sees newcomers Britney Spears and Demi Lovato make their debuts.

Miley @ Beacher's Madhouse watching world's oldest female stripper

"Moments before Miley Cyrus' alleged nightclub altercation ... something way more traumatic happened -- a seriously close encounter with an 82-year-old stripper!

The T&A nightmare went down Saturday night at the Beacher's Madhouse in Hollywood, where Miley was standing front row when the octogenarian ass-shaker hit the stage ... gently, of course.

The well-preserved dancer -- billed as the world's oldest female stripper -- worked the crowd, including Miley, into a frenzy.

As TMZ first reported, Miley was named a suspect in a criminal battery after an alleged scrap that night ... between Miley, her fiance Liam Hemsworth and another guy in the theater.

Miley denies hitting anyone, and several witnesses say the same.

By the way, if you're wondering how much granny stripper takes off -- watch the video. Also ... what's wrong with you?"

Watch ABC’s new fall drama ‘Last Resort’

(click to watch at source)

With its high-stakes military intrigue and big-budget special effects, ABC's new submarine thriller "Last Resort" looks more like a big-screen summer blockbuster than a TV series. But you don't have to drive to the local multiplex to get a taste of this action: You can watch the full series premiere of "Last Resort" weeks before it airs, exclusively right here on Yahoo! TV.

From "The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan, "Resort" stars Emmy winner Andre Braugher ("Homicide: Life on the Street") as Captain Marcus Chaplin, the commanding officer of a U.S. Navy nuclear submarine. When the sub receives a mysterious order to fire on Pakistan, Chaplin questions the authority of the order and is immediately relieved of duty. But his second-in-command, executive officer Sam Kendal ("Felicity's" Scott Speedman), refuses the order as well, turning the sub into an enemy of the state. Running for their lives, the crew sets up camp on the exotic island of Sainte Marina, where Chaplin decides to stand his ground... by any means necessary.

Nail-bitingly tense and surprisingly thought-provoking, "Last Resort" looks like one of this fall's best new dramas; in fact, it's one of our Fall TV Editors' Picks. But don't take our word for it. Watch the premiere and then head to the comments section to tell us if you think "Last Resort" will sink or swim this fall.

"Last Resort" premieres Thursday, 9/27 at 8 PM on ABC.

'Parks and Recreation': Ben Schwartz's Jean-Ralphio Back in Business With Tom

Entertainment 720 is back in business.

Ben Schwartz has booked a return to NBC's Parks and Recreation, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Schwartz, who stars on Showtime's House of Lies, will return to Pawnee for at least one episode where he's set to reprise what showrunner Mike Schur calls "the world's worst human being," Jean-Ralphio.

"Tom as the beginning of the season is struggling a bit because he hasn't had any good entrepreneurial ideas in a while and he's running short on cash and he strikes what could be the first ever actually legitimate business idea that he has ever had -- and he invites Jean-Ralphio into the mix to be his business partner again," Schur tells THR.

"There's an arc that starts around Episode 5 for Tom where he's trying to start a new business but he's grown up a bit and has learned from his mistakes in the past so it's about him trying to turn over a new leaf and take what he thinks is actually a good idea for once and turn it into a legitimate business," he says.

While the showrunner was mum on just what the evil genius comes up with, he teased that it comes organically to the wannabe entrepreneur.

"It's not like a flash of inspiration for the sky where he suddenly gets an idea for an imaginary product and tries to invent it; it's something that comes very naturally out of everything that you already know about Tom, which is why it feels like a legitimate idea," he says.

Schwartz's episode is tentatively slated to air Nov. 1. Parks and Recreation returns Thursday, Sept. 20 at 9:30 p.m. on NBC.

Flawless Mr. Andrews aka SPYDADDY talks about Titanic's new blu-ray release and Argo

We caught up with Garber as the Titanic Blu-Ray arrives September 10 to get some exclusive insight into the filming of a James Cameron classic, and we even get him to talk about his upcoming film, Ben Affleck’s Argo.

Movie Fanatic: How does your time on Titanic rate when you look back at your career?

Victor Garber: Obviously I feel incredibly fortunate to have literally walked into that role at the very last minute. I was one of the last people cast and they were already shooting when I got to Rosarito. I met James Cameron. They put me in costume. We’d never met. I walked onto the set and they were all in a big tank and James was in his wetsuit with his camera and snorkel. I was sitting there waiting for him to come over. I thought, “I may not get it yet.” And he walked over and said a couple of words and said, “Okay, great. See you tomorrow.” And there I was for five-and-a-half months doing Titanic.

Movie Fanatic: How has Titanic resonated for you personally?

Victor Garber: I’ve never not talked about this movie. It’s always people’s first question on a movie set, on any movie I’ve been on. Anybody, any crew member, wants to know what it was like and what James was like and what my experience was. It’s a part of who I am and continues to be.

Kim Kardashian Compares Kris Humphries TV Wedding To Cancer?

Thousands watched as Kim Kardashian walked down the aisle to marry Kris Humphries. However, her lavish reality TV wedding appeared to be all in vain as 72 days later, Kim announced that she was separating from her new husband.

Nearly a year on, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty, who is currently locked in a divorce battle with her estranged husband where things between them are said to be acrimonious, has tenuously compared her TV wedding to cancer in an interview with The Guardian.

As he posed in his loungewear for a super sexy photoshoot, the Take That heartthrob revealed he was uncomfortable about putting himself in the public eye as a talent show judge rather than a performer.
'All of sudden you’re not a singer. You’re just you, talking, on telly… some weeks people love you and some weeks they hate you,' he told GQ Style.
'I was worried about being myself. I’ve always been criticised, in a way, for being myself. People have always said I’m boring and all the rest of it and that was sort of playing on my mind.'
Determined not to let negative comments affect him, Gary added: 'My view is that actually this is my hobby job. My real job is I'm in Take That and if ITV or whoever decide that I’m not good enough then I'll go back to my normal job.'

The Globe's six favourite movies from TIFF

The Master

Many of the flagship films at this TIFF – Cloud Atlas, Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder, Michael Haneke’s Amour – turn on the struggles of love, both romantic and spiritual. So does Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, a post-Second World War portrait of the relationship between a megalomaniacal cult leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and an out-of-control shell-shocked sailor (Joaquin Phoenix) who becomes his acolyte. Arguably not a perfectly constructed movie (the wheels seem to scrape the rim for a stretch in the last half), it is a hypnotic one, from the luxuriousness of the images to the alarmingly physical performances of the actors. Both bigger than life and personal to Anderson’s favourite concerns (ambition, loneliness, shame), The Master is too odd to be this fall’s crowd-pleaser; think of this more in the league of Orson Welles or Herman Melville. – Liam Lacey

Michelle Kwan Is Engaged

After nine U.S. national figure skating championships, five world championships and two Olympic medals, Michelle Kwan has enough hardware to populate many a trophy case.

On Sept. 3, though, she got the ultimate in bling – a diamond ring.

Kwan, 32, tells PEOPLE that she is engaged to Clay Pell, 30, director for strategic planning on the National Security staff at the White House. The two first met in April 2011.

"It was a simple decision and it made sense, that's what's so exciting to me," Kwan says of the proposal. "We are working together as a team, like in [pair skating]."

Adds Pell: "It was amazing from the very beginning how in sync our way of thinking is, our basic values and our sense of priorities. We just both got each other."

Pell proposed on Block Island, off the coast of Rhode Island.

Chris Evans at TIFF and start date for Cap 2

The Iceman TIFF premiere

Gathering together to premiere their latest movie, the stars of “The Iceman” were on hand at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday night (September 10).

Female lead in the film Winona Ryder looked elegant in a simple black dress with open toe heels while her fellow male co-stars Chris Evans and Michael Shannon looked dapper for their red carpet appearance.

Shannon recently spoke with The Canadian Press about the project saying, "It's different now, for a long time when I did films I was supporting, a player, or cameo and now I've got a couple under my belt where, here I am, the title character, which is nothing I ever anticipated."

Though Michael and director Ariel Vromen knew he would be great for the character, Vromen had other concerns as the actor explained, “It's funny because when Vromen first started trying to put this movie together, he told me -- he was very candid -- he said, 'I would love for you to play this part but I don't know if I can get the financing with you in the part,' because you know, we all know how that works."

"The Iceman” is the true story of Richard Kuklinski, the notorious contract killer and family man. It also stars Ray Liotta and is slated to hit theaters on March 14.

Chris Evans, who plays the star spangled man with a plan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealed that he will be suiting up once again in March 2013. This is actually great news for fans, as while the first movie ended up being fantastic, it was made on a very rushed schedule. With Captain America: The Winter Soldier not due out until April 4, 2014, that means they will have more than a full year to work on making sure that the final product is just right.

The film is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, best known as producers on television shows like Community and Happy Endings, while the script is being written by First Avenger scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. In addition to Evans, it's expected that Sebastian Stan will reprise his role as Bucky Barnes a.k.a. The Winter Soldier, while Anthony Mackie has been cast as Sam Wilson a.k.a. The Falcon.'

Mae Whitman 'Definitely' Will Be On New Season of 'Arrested Development'

Who? Ann. Her? Yes. If you ask us, it's as Ann as the nose on Plain's face that Ann needs to be a part of the new season of Arrested Development. And you know who agrees? Mae Whitman. spoke with Whitman on Sunday and she told us that she absolutely, positively wants to be a part of the excitement.

"I've always been like 'Oh I don't want to give anything away,' but I definitely, definitely wouldn't ever let this chance go by without being a part of it," Whitman said. "I told Mitch [Hurwitz] that I would stand outside the sound stage until he would let me just walk through the background or something."

Whitman continued, "I would say yes, you can definitely expect to find a little bit of Ann hiding in the background somewhere, at least."

"At least" is right! We would like to go on record right here, right now, to say that Whitman deserves more than a cameo in Arrested Development's new season. Not only do we need more Egg/Ann jokes to fill our hearts with laughter, but Ann plays a fairly large role in the series' non-finale. In the final episode of Season 3, we learn that Ann has been dating G.O.B. It was as shocking a revelation for the audience as it was for George Michael, who punched his uncle in the face upon hearing the news. Now, we can't be the only ones eager to hear where things went from here.

In all seriousness, Whitman has proven herself to be a superb dramatic actress by tackling meaty roles in films such as the upcoming Perks of Being a Wallflower, but we are eager to see her return to her comedic roots. Throw the girl a mayonegg, Mitch, and write her a good-sized part in Arrested's new season.

And in other shocking news... George Clooney breaks up with girlfriend #39080988

HOLLYWOOD’S serial single man George Clooney is splitting from ANOTHER lover — his sexy young girlfriend Stacy Keibler.

The heart-throb actor, 51, appeared to be finally settling down with blonde Stacy, 32, after they spent the summer together at his home in Lake Como, Italy.

They even flew their parents out last month to meet each other. But ex female wrestler Stacy is now telling friends: It’s over.

A statement is expected any day announcing the pair have split amicably.
It seems notoriously commitment-shy Clooney has got cold feet again about settling down.

A pal of Stacy’s revealed: “She said George wants to be on his own again and has no intention of getting married.

“Stacy hoped they would be together long-term. It was a big breakthrough to spend time with his parents. But over the last few weeks George has pulled away from her.”

Robsten not 'fine'? Rob changes his phone number 4 times.

Robert Pattinson has reportedly started an "investigation" to discover how Kristen Stewart keeps getting his phone number. The Twilight stars are understood to have split after Kristen admitted having an affair with married film director Rupert Sanders.

There have been reports the pair have been talking on the phone, but it's now been claimed they were untrue. Robert is said to have changed his number four times and is becoming increasingly angry that Kristen is still managing to get his number.

"Rob's actually launched an investigation of his close friends, business associates - even his family - to find out who is leaking his numbers to Kristen," an insider told National Enquirer. "It's only 20 close confidents and one of them is betraying him."

The actor is apparently prepared to take drastic steps to ensure his ex-girlfriend can no longer contact him. "He's steaming mad and swears that when he finds the culprit, he'll cut that person out of his life," the source said.

“They had a sit-down meeting with all their reps and lawyers last month,” a friend tells OK!. “Kristen tried to speak to Rob but he ignored her, then one of his people stepped in and blocked her from trying again. She started yelling, saying he was being ridiculous, but he just looked at her like she was crazy.”

In the wake of Kristen’s affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, the reasons for the new hard feelings include her lingering suspicions about Rob’s relationship with Katy Perry. “The last time they spoke,” the friend tells OK!, “Kristen made the fatal error of asking about his nights out with Katy and some of the other women he’s close to,” says the source. (As OK! reported, Katy pal Rihanna was also sexy texting Rob.)

100 Slow Jams That Will Definitely Get You Laid

Love notes arouse the mind. Red wine gets the blood flowing. Home-cooked dinners are thoughtful. Incense set the mood. Rose pedals and bubble baths are a nice touch. But when it comes to sealing the deal, nothing does the trick like the right slow jam. So before you invite your lover to lay down, make sure your playlist is set.

We got some Marvin Gaye, some Luther Vandross, a little Anita. We got some Ready for the World, some New Edition, some Minnie Ripperton, and 94 more songs to really set the party off right. The rest, though, is up to you. All we ask, is that in the climactic moment, you make her scream out, "Complex presents the 100 Slow Jams That Will Definitely Get You Laid."

S Club 7's Tina - I'm a Seductress and Deeply Saucy!

"I’ve been able to unleash my inner raunchiness. It’s like an explosion!"

She's best known as one-seventh of chart-topping pop band S Club 7.

But Tina Barrett proved she has come a long way since her teeny-bopper days as she stripped off for a raunchy new shoot for Zoo magazine.

The 35-year-old singer showed off her curves in a set of revealing black underwear, which she teamed with a pair of sexy knee-high boots.

In another shot, the brunette beauty looked teasingly towards the camera as she peeled a sheer black body stocking off her body.

And the singer, who shot to fame on kids' TV show Miami 7, admitted she is now ready to unleash her 'inner raunchiness' to the world.

She said: 'Having come from a teenybopper group, I’ve now got the opportunity to be sexier, so I’ve been able to unleash my inner raunchiness. It’s like an explosion!'

First Looks: Artist Richard Phillips Talks Adriana Lima and (sort of) Lindsay Lohan

In January, artist Richard Phillips — known for his lush, hyper-realistic oil paintings of figures in pop culture like Taylor Swift, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kristen Stewart — photographed Adriana Lima for Visionaire magazine's 3D Rio project. Last year, he created a short film with Lindsay Lohan, titled First Point, that was displayed at Art Basel in June. Now he has incorporated these works into a new series of paintings, on view starting tonight at the Gagosian Gallery in New York. We caught up with him over the weekend about the show.

You always paint from pictures, so working with live models is new for you — now that you’ve worked with Adriana and Lindsay, how do you feel about working from life versus working from a photo or an illustration?
Working with Adriana, I was a bit nervous. She's so powerful — really an entity, in a way. It gave me more admiration for photographers that do that sort of thing professionally. There really is a sense of direction and confidence that inspires the model. There were some humorous moments where I had to go over the poses I wanted her to do by getting into those poses myself, which my assistants got a good laugh at. But it was only after I went through a few of the pose sequences that I felt comfortable and was able to really talk about how to do that.

So what was it like to work with Adriana?
These photographs were not easy to do, and required her skill to strike and hold complicated poses for quite a long time. You meet her and there's a generosity of spirit and very friendly and easy manner, and then all of sudden, the lights go on, and you realize you're working with this absolutely extraordinary person who’s capable of creating these powerful images. It was my first time ever working with a fashion model. I shot her back in January, and days later, she appeared in no less than four Super Bowl commercials. I was sitting with friends and I mentioned I had just worked with her, and they were like "What?!" She really is flawless. We did a lot of postproduction work on the background of the photographs, but really none on her.

Was she pregnant when she posed?
I don't believe so. Well, she may have been very early on and not known. I think only gave later, a week or so later, an announcement. That was really wonderful to hear. She certainly wasn't showing any signs around the time of the shoot, as the paintings will bear out.

Tell me about the paintings.
It was understood from the beginning that the shoot would function as a way to capture images that I would then be using to create paintings. The paintings are meant to be physically overwhelming. They're upwards of eleven feet tall, and in some cases past twelve feet in width. They're meant to do what oil painting is meant to do, which is to do exactly what photography really can't — which is to re-actualize lived experience in a poetic sphere. My goal was to turn up the volume on the visual imagery of Adriana as far as it could go.

Do you ever get apprehensive about showing your subjects the paintings you've done of them?
I haven't really done that many paintings where that opportunity comes up. I have to admit that, you know, you always have a sense of excitement about getting their reaction. But I'm really proud of how these turned out. They are very vivid, and they're also quite out-scaled. It would be like seeing yourself very big. But it's different from photography because it's not that click away from reality — it's something entirely constructed, by me, by hand.

It's not like you had a shared moment, as one does in photography.
No, it's hours and hours and hours alone in my studio creating the image and painting it away from the model. It's that second phase of image construction — at least the way that I do it with my artwork — and that is very solitary constructiona_3x-horizontal

Richard Phillips's works will be on view at the Gagosian Gallery at 555 West 24th Street from September 11 to October 20, 2012.
