Ang Lee on 'Life of Pi' Tiger Incident: 'It Was an Accident'


Life of Pi director Ang Lee, questioned by reporters in Manila and Taiwan after The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive investigation into the treatment of animals on film and TV sets, has admitted that the tiger star of his movie faced a scary moment during filming, according to Taiwan's Central News Agency.

"It was an accident," Lee told reporters about the incident in Taiwan, the agency said. "The crew worked hard to rescue the tiger and then showed him a lot of care, giving him five-star treatment." He later said in Manila, "We gave a lot of care to the tiger, as much as we possibly could."

One Direction heads to #1 and other projections


Doing projections on Black Friday is like a blind man playing darts with his back to the board--things can land anywhere.

January Jones Writes about Shark Finning for The Huffington Post

NOAA Could Undermine State Shark Fin Bans
Commuters traveling through the metro station near the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) headquarters might notice something unusual -- a series of ads posted by Oceana urging NOAA to protect sharks and not shark finners. NOAA is tasked with "the management, conservation and protection of" our nation's "living marine resources," so it might come as a surprise that the agency is challenging state laws that help protect sharks.
Each year, shark finners slaughter as many as 73 million sharks for shark fin soup. Slaughter is no understatement -- they typically hack off every one of a shark's fins before hurling the shark back overboard, dead or dying. The insatiable demand for shark fins has already contributed to population declines as high as 90 percent for many species.

Midnight Memories Overtakes Random Access Memories as the Fastest Selling Album of 2013 in the UK!



One Direction’s third album Midnight Memories has become the fastest-selling album of the year so far. The band’s new album has beaten the record previously held by Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. Daft Punk sold 165,091 copies of Random Access Memories during its first week on sale, but Midnight Memories has shifted 187,660, Music Week reports. 1D were on course for the achievement on Wednesday, which saw a whopping 145,000 copies of the album sold within the first three days of its release on November 25.

Midnight Memories will be the lads’ second chart-topping album after 2012′s Take Me Home. Zayn, Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall look set to beat Gary Barlow’s new album Since I Saw You Last to number 1.

One Direction were recently honoured at the American Music Awards, which saw them pip Taylor Swift to the post for best pop/rock album for Take Me Home. They also bagged best pop/rock group on the night. As the group, who came third in the 2010 series of The X Factor, took to the stage to collect their award, Niall said: ‘To be here is just an honour and to pick up two awards is just incredible. ‘To be able to perform here as well, thank you so much again to our fans. Literally, you mean the world to us and there is no way we would be able to do this without you. Thank you.’

Julia Roberts is the MVP in 'August: Osage County'

The Oscar winner will receive the Spotlight Award, but she shouldn't need it. I caught up with "August: Osage County" last night and found it, as colleagues had led me to expect, something of a mixed bag. Even with the playwright himself on adaptation duty, Tracy Letts' exhausting but enjoyably spiky Pulitzer Prize-winning play is diminished in its translation to the screen: compressing the material to two-thirds of its luxurious three-hour runtime reveals a number of its strains and superficialities, with the newly short shrift given to certain characters (notably Misty Upham's Johnna) affecting its cumulative emotional impact.

Still, as a big and bold-faced performance showcase, the film works rather well. Meryl Streep is on brashly entertaining form as the literally and figuratively cancerous-mouthed Violet Weston, a character set to become a new grande dame standard in American theatre. She's chosen to play it to the hilt, and Violet is a creation who can sustain that approach -- though I still think a number of Streep's contemporaries would been at least as good and gained considerably more from the role.

Julianne Nicholson, Juliette Lewis and Margo Martindale all tackle the material with varying types of gusto, but the clear MVP of the cast, for me, was Julia Roberts. That's not too surprising a turn of events. Barb Weston, Violet's embittered and increasingly rageful daughter, is arguably the true protagonist of the piece, and provides ample emotional fodder for any actress up to the task: she may not quite have thespian centerpiece of Violet's toxic dinner-table spill, but her dawning, furious fear of turning into her mother makes for the richest character arc of play and film alike.

Spike Lee Slams Designer Who Claims 'Oldboy' Poster Designs Were Stolen


Spike Lee is firing back at designer Juan Luis Garcia, who claims an ad agency used his concept designs for Oldboy posters and promotional materials without permission.

Garcia wrote an open letter appealing to the director for help. In the letter, Garcia said he worked exclusively for almost two months on the project, and when the ad agency gave him an extremely low offer for his work, he declined. According to Garcia, the agency used his work anyway, and did not pay him for it. He said the agency threatened to take legal action against him when he complained.

Lee responded to the letter on Twitter Thursday, tweeting "I Never Heard Of This Guy Juan Luis Garcia,If He Has A Beef It's Not With Me.I Did Not Hire Him,Do Not Know Him.Cheap Trick Writing To Me.YO."

Several people commented on Lee's Instagram page, asking the director to help Garcia. When one man wrote "Dude pay the graphic artist," Lee responded: "Why Should I Pay Someone Who I Never Met Nor Had Any Contact With Ever? He Never Made Any Deal With Me.Why Don't You Pay Me For Your Stupid Text On Thanksgiving Day?"

Earlier, in his open letter, Garcia said he wanted to contact Lee after seeing the director had used the Oldboy promotional materials in question in his social media feeds.

"I couldn’t believe that you had been using and claiming copyright on three of those very same posters I designed," Garcia wrote. "I just couldn’t believe it. I perceive you as an advocate of the arts and artists and have a sinking feeling that you are as much of a victim in this as I am."

In an email to The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday, Garcia said he hoped Lee could help him resolve the situation with the ad agency without taking any legal action. He said he wasn't naming the ad agency because Lee knew "exactly who" he was talking about.

Oldboy is bombing at the box office, and may not reach $2 million during its five-day holiday debut.

Popcorn.gif: Nick Cannon goes after Kanye on Twitter



Nick Cannon and Kanye West are supposed to be ‘friends’, but it’s doubtful that it will stay that way after this latest bit of news. In a [probably drunk or inebriated] rant, Nick took to Twitter to criticize Kanye and his recent comments, pretty much calling Kanye out for his ridiculous ego and his penchant for calling himself a ‘genius’ all the time. No doubt Mariah Carey feels the same way as her husband, after all, isn’t she the biggest genius and goddess alive?

Ian Watkins Guilty Plea: An Ex-Friend Wonders How She Didn't See It Coming


This is Ian Watkins. Until he was arrested almost a year ago on charges related to the sexual abuse of minors, Ian Watkins sang for a band called Lostprophets. The British rockers weren't particularly well-known in the U.S., but they had an enormous fan-base elsewhere; they sold more than 3.5 million albums over the course of their career, selling out stadiums all over the world.

But on December 19th, 2012 -- 13 years and five albums into being one of the most famous rock frontmen in the U.K. -- Ian got arrested, put in prison and has been awaiting trial ever since. On Tuesday, instead of finally starting that trial, Ian instead pleaded guilty to the attempted rape of a one-year-old infant, as well as a string of other truly horrific child sex offenses.

That's right folks: this man tried to rape a baby.

And guess what? I have been friends with him for 17 years.

Carrie Underwood receiving hate tweets over 'The Sound of Music'



Carrie Underwood has come under fire on social media for her upcoming turn as 'Maria' in THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE on NBC.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly for the magazine's "Entertainers of the Year" issue, Underwood said: "I get hate Tweets and stuff like, 'You're not Julie Andrews!' I know I'm not Julie. Nobody is and I would never pretend that I was ... I know my place."

But BroadwayWorld reported earlier this month that Andrews herself supports Underwood in the role.

"Fifty years later, it's time somebody had another crack at it. I had the best time of my life doing it, and it did wonderful things for me. I think it's great that it's being done again, but doing it live must be so daunting for Carrie," Andrews said. "It's a lovely piece, and I do hope it works for Carrie, because she's lovely and I'm a fan. I wish her well."

New York Times: "The new Britney Spears album is as personal as an airline preboarding announcement"



Britney Spears has been promising that her new album, “Britney Jean,” is her “most personal album ever” since July, when she first tweeted the phrase. Fans might have hoped for a candid look at a turbulent life: child stardom as a Mouseketeer, reinvention as a teenage tease and then a trashy sex symbol, marriages, motherhood, public meltdowns, stints in rehab and her rebound as a hitmaker, a judge on “The X Factor” and, at the end of December, a performer starting a two-year residency in Las Vegas.
This week, Ms. Spears unveiled “Britney Jean” as an official iTunes stream ahead of its planned release date on Tuesday. And it turns out that “Britney Jean” is about as personal as an airline preboarding announcement.
“Britney Jean” arrives after three albums full of electronic sizzle and mind games. On “Blackout,” from 2007, and “Circus,” from 2008, songs leveraged Ms. Spears’ own tabloid fame for taunts and counterattacks, playing on public fascination without giving away any secrets. “Femme Fatale,” from 2011, after some years of damage control, concentrated on dancing and romance, but made the production even more dizzying. Ms. Spears and her many producers created a persona that was insolent, unrepentant and equally knowing about media manipulation and studio gimmickry. Sure, it was brazenly artificial, but it was also vibrant, and it held a multitude of cultural implications about desire, technology, stardom and pop calculation.
The fun leaches out while the calculation stays obvious on “Britney Jean.” The lyrics touch Ms. Spears’s usual bases — love, lust, dancing, success, breaking up — with no personalizing details. “If there was a scale from one to 10/on my love for you, it’s a million billion,” Ms. Spears sings in “It Should Be Easy.” A duet with her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, “Chillin’ With You,” has Britney drinking red wine, Jamie drinking white, and both agreeing, “I had the time of my life.” The breakup song “Don’t Cry” vows, “This is gonna be our last goodbye/Our love is gone but I’ll survive.” No exposés here.
Every so often, Ms. Spears sings about insecurity — most dramatically in the single “Perfume,” a piano-driven trance-meets-pomp anthem written with Sia Furler, who has provided ardent hooks for dance, hip-hop and R&B hits. It starts with a good premise — before her boyfriend sees an ex-girlfriend, she’s going to get the smell of her perfume on him, to “mark my territory” — and circles through it with rising anxiety. It’s a wonder that Ms. Spears, who has had a sideline marketing perfumes since 2004, and her brain trust didn’t come up with this tie-in earlier.

Science Reporter Emily Graslie Reads Her Mail — And It's Not So Nice



Many of the folks who write her, write not about the science, but about her body, her looks, her clothes, and do so without any apparent embarrassment. She's a science reporter who happens to be a young woman, and her woman-ness is the thing they focus on. The science, to her chagrin, often takes second place.

In her new video, Emily (with help from director and video editor Michael Aranda) gives us samples from her mailbox, She's not mad, not exactly. Instead, she just explains why these matter-of-fact little letter bombs make it harder for her to work, and how they hurt — every single day. And, being Emily, she explains it very well.

One Direction give Christmas surprise to sick children at Ninewells

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The biggest boyband on the planet are providing a Christmas surprise for sick children at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.

One Direction have paid for a Christmas toybox — worth thousands of pounds — to be sent to children at the hospital’s oncology ward.

It is the second year in a row that One Direction have sent Christmas goodies to Dundee. The group also sent out VIP tickets earlier in the year so children on the ward could see them perform live — and meet them afterwards.

One Direction began to send gifts to the oncology ward after Zayn Malik’s mum, Tricia, was contacted by Charlie Kean, who runs the Children’s Fund charity.

She got her son and bandmates to send a box of Christmas presents last year, which included signed programmes and merchandise as well as toys.

Now, a second box has been delivered for Charlie to hand out this year.

“We were sent 36 VIP tickets so that kids from the ward could get to meet the band this year,” Charlie said. “And Zayn’s mum sends us stuff all the time and will text to ask about children she’s met.

“The lads are all out of this world. They are really normal, down to Earth and some of the nicest boys in the world.”

He added: “The kids are over the moon. This is the biggest boyband in the world and they are idols to a lot of the children.”

Charlie has already collected more than 3,000 gifts as part of his Bring a Smile for Christmas campaign and aims to reach 25,000 by the time Christmas rolls around.

Last year more than 25,500 toys were donated and then distributed to needy children in the Dundee area.

CULTURAL EVENT OF THE YEAR DOUBLES LADY GAGA MUPPET THING IN RATINGS

Garth Brooks concert tops Friday, doubles Gaga

Garth Brooks has been playing to sold-out crowds for last four years in Las Vegas. On Friday, the country legend proved he can still draw an impressive national TV audience too.
CBS’ two-hour telecast of Garth Brooks, Live From Las Vegas delivered 8.7 million viewers and a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49. That’s double the viewers and adult demo rating of a certain other music artist’s prime-time special this week — Lady Gaga’s romp with the Muppets, which aired on Thursday. Brooks easily had the highest-rated and most-watched show among the broadcasters last night. Competition was soft, to be sure, but for a music special on a Friday night during a holiday weekend this is a good number.
The concert marked Brooks’ final show of his one-man residency on The Strip. The country artist previously retired from performing in 2001 to spend more time with his family.

She added: ''I used to not at all like surprises, but now I kind of enjoy it, especially because he seems to always get it right. He's definitely a guy's guy but he's got something else in there in him that definitely can choose a gift.''

Petition To Ban James Arthur From 'X Factor' Performance + X Factor Live Discussion

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

James Arthur should be banned from performing on the 'X Factor' this weekend after making homophobic remarks, an online petition has demanded.

So far over 6,000 people have signed up to the 'Drop Homophobe James Arthur from XFactor' Facebook page, following his spat with former friend and 'X Factor' 2012 contestant Lucy Spraggan.

The 'Impossible' singer first sparked outrage when he performed a rap and used the term "f***ing queer".

He then reportedly sent abusive text messages to Lucy, who is openly gay, after she challenged his views.

In a statement to The Metro, ITV said: "Following his comments James has since apologised last week, making it clear that he did not mean to cause any offence and explaining the context behind his remarks".

Last week we reported James has been diagnosed with acute exhaustion, with all of his public appearances and performances cancelled for a week.

"Unfortunately James Arthur has been diagnosed with acute exhaustion and instructed to rest for several days by his doctor," a statement on his Facebook page read.

However, it seems he is now well enough to sing on the show that made him famous.

Confirmed: Paul Walker Dead -- 'Fast and The Furious' Star Dies in Fiery Car Crash








1143
Paul Walker -- best known for his role in "The Fast and the Furious" movies -- died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California ... TMZ has learned.

The accident happened in Santa Clarita -- north of Los Angeles -- and according to multiple sources connected to Paul ... the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree ... and then the car burst into flames.

We're told Paul and another person in the car were killed. Law enforcement is still on the scene, and we're told the L.A. County Coroner's Office is on the way.

At this point, it's unclear what caused the accident, or who was behind the wheel when it happened.

Paul was 40 years old.

Sources close to Paul tell us he was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and had been taking friends out for rides in his new Porsche GT. The accident happened during one of those test spins.



A rep for the actor confirms Paul died today in the crash after leaving a charity event.

10 Ingeniously Tiny Clues To Big Plots


Steven Moffat has turned me into a wreck. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of his work, but maybe some day in the future, I’d like to watch an episode of his without analysing the use of eggs or Christmas lists. I’m on a self-imposed quest to find out more about Doctor Who before it happens than anyone else on the planet – failing that, Tumblr – and then maybe, just maybe, the BBC will make me the Thirteenth Doctor. On the basis of my non-linear knowledge, of course.

But sometimes, you watch episodes back from years ago, and you notice the most minuscule fragments of dialogue, and wonder whether the writers have planted that seed in the hope that one day, we’ll watch the episode back and shout, “Oh my god, I know what you’re on about!”

These clues I’m about to share with you… they can’t all be intentional. Can they? If they’re not, they’re just coincidences. Still, watch the episodes back again, and you’ll never look at these moments the same again.
