Kristen Bell: Dax Shepard Felt Like He Was Cheating During Pregnancy Sex!


Kristen Bell steps out of a private residence rocking a leather dress on Tuesday (January 21) in Los Feliz, Calif.

The 33-year-old actress made an appearance on Conan that evening, where she talked about having sex with Dax Shepard during her pregnancy.

“He said he liked some meat on my bones. First of all, he phrased it as ‘there’s more of you to love,’ but then one time he did say, ‘It feels like I’m cheating on you.’ And that, I think, was the ticket because he felt like he was with a completely different woman,” Kristen said. “That’s pretty exciting if you’re married, you know what I mean, and can feel like you’re with someone else?”

Rumor: Is Pixar developing its own Star Wars movie?

Now that Disney has gobbled up everything that’s important to you and your childhood, they’re going to start doing what any corporation worth its salt would do: start squeezing every single possible dollar out of your bank account until your wallet cries uncle. The first step in their recent wave of corporate synergy was giving the ‘Star Wars‘ comic license back to Marvel. Step two is an even bigger deal: giving Pixar a ‘Star Wars’ movie to make.

According to the folks over at Latino Review, the beloved and critically acclaimed animation studio behind the likes of ‘Toy Story’ and ‘Up’ may have just been given the keys to the ‘Star Wars’ sandbox. This is what life under the Disney umbrella must look like: all of your favorite things whirling around and colliding in one massive storm of well-structured insanity.

Another Alleged Ke$ha Update

Pop phenomenon and all-around adorable human being Ke$ha Sebert has apparently briefly reclaimed access to her Twitter account to tweet yet another message of gratitude for the support that fans have shown her as she struggles to overcome her eating disorder.

Ke$ha had previously issued similar sentiments (and a request for teeth) on the previous day via a friend on January 21st, 2014. Click here for the post on that.

Ke$ha's mother Pebe Sebert, who followed her daughter into the Timberline Knoll facility for PTSD treatment, has (mercifully) abstained from social media use since January 10th. It is not currently known if she has any plans to change that.

Nymphomaniac Orgasm Faces

This Is A Late Night Porn Post, ONTD: Lars Von Trier's "Nymphomaniac" Sneaks Into Sundance 2014

Let's start with the ending: the closing credits disclaimer that insists that none of the lead actors in Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac filmed penetrative sex. If there is real sex in the movie, and it sure looks like there is, it must have been done by one of the eight credited sex doubles, listed far down the crew after the cast, somewhere around the caterers and gaffers. (Humble billing, but oh what luscious names -- my favorite was Elvira Friis.) The sex doubles loaned their loins to Von Trier, who digitally stitched them to his actors. In the era of Google image search, the difference between an XXX freeze frame of an actor having sex versus a perfect simulacrum seems technical at best, though I suppose their parents must be relieved.

So yes, even though we've been informed in real life that Shia LaBeouf's penis is named Richard Dreyfus, we don't actually see the thing during a scene where he primes himself before taking 15-year-old Joe's (a brave Stacy Martin) vaginal and anal virginity, or later when the camera plants itself between his legs as she rides him like a pony. We're seeing someone else's, lots of someones elses', and if you're not prepared for a minute-long montage of full-frontal flaccid cocks, I suggest you see another film.

Of course, as Nymphomaniac started, none of us in the audience were 100 percent sure we weren't seeing the real deal. We weren't even sure we were seeing Nymphomaniac at all. It was billed only as Film X, a secret screening by "a major director." But when we entered the theater and were confronted by an 18+ only warning and a concessionaire urging us to take shots, we grinned.

We weren't seeing the full, four-hour film. Instead, this was Nymphomaniac Volume I, the first of two parts. (Volume I hits the states on March 21; the second follows in April.) Still, the crowd was so excited to catch a glimpse of Von Trier's latest that when the first image popped up on screen, a woman several rows behind me blurted, "Snow! That's snow!"

Anne Hathaway Explains Post-Oscars: "People Needed A Break From Me"


Anne Hathaway can take a hint. The star, 31, has kept a relatively low profile since winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Les Miserables in February 2013. With the exception of a brief cameo in Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Don Jon, she didn't appear in any movies last year and was a rare presence on the red carpet. But as she revealed in a new interview with the Huffington Post at Sundance, where she's promoting her film Song One, the break was as much for the public as it was for her.

"My impression is that people needed a break from me," she quipped, reportedly with a laugh. (Hathaway faced backlash last year after her dress drama with Amanda Seyfried at the Oscars; she was also criticized for her many acceptance speeches.)

Not that the time off was bad. With less on her plate, the Dark Knight Rises actress got a chance to spend some quality time with husband Adam Shulman, whom she married in September 2012. Earlier this month, the pair enjoyed a romantic getaway in Hawaii.

Now, though, she's back to work. In Song One, she plays an anthropologist who returns home to New York City after her brother is injured in a car accident. She also has a role in Christopher Nolan's new movie Interstellar.

"I think there's a common misconception about actors -- that we have a lot more control than we do about when things happen," she told HuffPost of her busy-again schedule. "We met on this [movie] in 2011 -- I was working on Batman -- and then we developed this script and the music for two years, and we shot it in June. We had been planning on shooting in the fall and then Chris Nolan called with an offer for a part in his new movie..."

"So, we would either have to wait and push until after that -- which nobody wanted to do -- or move it up and have a truncated pre-production, which is what wound up happening," she explained. And it actually turned out to be pretty good timing. "I am not complaining about how it's working out," she added.


ABC orders David O. Russell's upstairs/downstairs soap straight to series

David O. Russell is on a streak in the film world, and now he’s going to try his hand at television.

EW has confirmed that ABC has ordered an untitled soapy drama project from the American Hustle director and Erin Brockovich writer Susannah Grant straight to series. The show, described as “an upstairs/downstairs soap centered on a private country club,” will be co-produced by CBS Studios and ABC Studios.

Russell’s American Hustle is currently up for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture — an award his films Silver Linings Playbook and The Fighter were also nominated for in their respective years.

Scott Disick Jokes He's Going to Walk Around With Penis "Hanging Out" to See "if It Starts a Trend"

Scott Disick is a lord, and if he wants to give the world a glimpse of his royal endowment, well, that's within the scope of his power.

In a Mobio Insider Q&A Wednesday, Jan. 22, Kourtney Kardashian's love joked (key word here, dolls) he might "start walking around with my penis hanging out of my pants just to see if it starts a trend." The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 30, also revealed he gets his "sense of style" from "Myself, who else?"

So will there ever be a Lord Disick clothing line for us commoners? "Yes," Scott wrote, "and hopefully soon."

Now, when asked what it's like to be such a regal figure, Scott replied, with typical deadpan delivery, "It's not bad, I must say." He explained to another fan that reigning as the lord just feels "very royal." Incidentally, Mason and Penelope's dad is ready to take over the throne! When asked when he "will replace the royal family," the lord answered glibly, "Sooner the better."

Lord Disick went on to call "Billionaires" his "biggest inspiration," confirm he likes his cars more than his watches, and explain that his ascots are custom made. But, when asked what he loves most about Kourtney, Scott dropped the bravado, answering sweetly, "Everything luckily."

Team USA uniforms for the Open Ceremonies look like this......

The uniforms that athletes representing the United States will wear in the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics next month in Sochi have been unveiled and, um, can they be re-veiled?

That’s the immediate, general reaction to the clothing, which debuted on “Today.”

The duds, er, togs, were designed by Ralph Lauren and were made in the United States. The wool, from Oregon, was spun in Pennsylvania and North Carolina and knit by your grandma in California, USA Today reports.

Julie Chu, a member of the hockey team, interpreted the design for USA Today.

“What I really enjoy when [I] look at it is I can see the patriotic spirit. When everyone’s wearing it together, it makes a bold statement.”

That it does. You, too, can make a bold statement: the cardigan with stars goes for $598, the cotton turtleneck sweater is, the fleece athletic pants bearing the “Team USA” label are a steal at $165, the black leather boots with red laces are $395 and the reindeer hat is $95. Proceeds go to the U.S. Olympic Committee.

These just scream "MURICA! Yeah!" All we need is a big eagle on the back.

Cate Blanchett doesn't remember the Golden Globes

It has been more than a week since Cate Blanchett won the Golden Globe best actress award. The trophy sits in her hotel room, surrounded by a mass of withered flowers – mementoes of an evening about which she can recall very little.

“Unfortunately my category came up rather late in the evening so I was a couple of sheets to the wind,” she says with a laugh. “Once your name is read out it’s a high like no other so I can’t remember a lot. I hope I didn’t do too many things I’ll regret.

“The Globe is in the hotel room and my sons made a little shrine for it with all the flowers that I have been receiving for the past week that are now dead.”

She won the award – along with another this week from the Screen Actors Guild – for her portrayal of Jasmine, an ex-New York socialite teetering on the verge of a nervous breakdown in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, a role which has made her odds-on favourite to win her second Oscar.

Katy Perry - "Simon Cowell should pay Cheryl Cole ‘what it takes’ for X Factor"

She’s been in demand to return to the show since leaving in 2010.

And it would seem that Cheryl Cole’s latest champion to get her back on the X Factor is Katy Perry.

The 29-year-old singer, who previously worked with Cheryl when standing in as a guest judge on the show, urged Simon Cowell to pay the 30-year-old beauty ‘what it takes’ to get her back on the show.

She exclusively told omg's source: “Of course I want to see Cheryl back on The X Factor - who doesn't right? Simon don't be mean - just pay her what it takes - The British Public want her back on their TV!”

And it would seem that Simon could be in the dog house with the ‘Unconditionally’ singer if he doesn’t manage to win Cheryl back.

She added: “Cheryl is absolutely adorable - and if I perform on The UK X Factor next season and Cheryl isn't one of the judges - then Simon you are going to have me to answer to.”

You heard the woman Si, now get to work on signing Miss Cole up pronto!

It was previously reported that Simon Cowell has offered Cheryl a staggering £2 million to rejoin the show, while Nicole Scheriznger had been offered £3 million to stay on for her third year.

'Oculus' Teaser Trailer & an Interview with Karen Gillan

They're in every home, every bedroom, every bathroom. You see them everyday. And, yet, there is still something creepy about mirrors. At least, that's how Karen Gillan, star of the upcoming horror film "Oculus," feels.

Gillian is best known for her three-year stint on the British sci-fi institution "Doctor Who" where she played Amy Pond, the human companion to Matt Smith's ageless, time-traveling alien. When her time on the show was over, she started looking for new opportunties. And in a phone conversation with Yahoo Movies, she told us that "Oculus" struck a chord because of her deep-seated love of horror movies.

Post Mortem: Sleepy Hollow Co-Creators on Jeremy's Big Reveal, Who's Dead, Who's On Their Way to Tow

And now, Sleepy Hollow fans, we wait.

The Fox drama capped its freshman season Monday evening with a supersized episode that answered one huge question – who is the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse? – and posed a slew of new ones that won’t be answered until the series returns in the fall.[Spoiler alert: If you haven't yet seen the finale, it's probably a good idea to bail out now.]

Is Jenny dead? Who’ll save Abbie from Purgatory — and for that matter, Ichabod from his grave and Katrina from Headless Abraham? What’ll become of jail-bound Irving? And is there any way Andy could’ve survived Washington’s tomb coming down on his head?

To ease the pain of the months-long wait until the Season 2 premiere, Sleepy co-creators/executive producers Len Wiseman and Alex Kurtzman gave TVLine some inside scoop on the finale… and what might lie ahead.

“For it to be embraced the way it’s been embraced has been such a pleasure,” Kurtzman says. “And I’m so glad to finally be able to talk about it!”

Selenita talks about Demi and being inspired by her

Opening up about BFF Demi Lovato, Selena dished on how Demi's past struggles inspire her.

"Demi's very, very strong. She's the only person that I would tell the deepest, darkest secrets to. The only person.

"I've known her since we were seven—and we did fall apart for a while. She was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing—I processed it saying, 'OK, I don't understand what she's going through so I'm just going to do this.' And I don't think it was fair, and I'm so happy that I have her back in my life now.

I feel like we're all given what we can handle, and clearly someone thought she could handle so much—and she could, and she did. And she's incredible for that. I couldn’t imagine going through some of the things that she went through, and the fact that she is who she is today is insane—she's one of my inspirations."


Justin Bieber: "MY MOM GIVES ME DRUGS"

Justin Bieber just ratted on one of his drug suppliers to police -- telling cops, HIS MOM is the one who gave him the prescription medication he took shortly before his DUI arrest.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, cops grilled Bieber on what substances he had ingested before his arrest ... and the singer admitted he was under the influence of Rx meds, alcohol, and weed.

When asked what kind of Rx meds, we're told Bieber said anti-anxiety (such as Xanax) but he wasn't sure exactly what kind ... because he just takes whatever his mom gives him.

It's unclear if he has his own prescriptions for the drugs -- and his mom just handles them -- or if he's using his mom's prescriptions ... which would be illegal. If Bieber does have a valid prescription , the presence of the substance in his system probably won't be held against him.

Revenge Porn Kingpin Arrested by FBI

After building an entire career atop posting stolen naked images of women across the country, internet villain Hunter Moore and alleged hacker partner Charlie Evans are in FBI custody.

The pair was arrested this morning, after an investigation into allegations that they'd illegally pried into private web accounts for fun and profit:

Hunter Moore, 27, of Woodland, who operated isanyoneup.com, and Charles Evens, 25, of Studio City, were arrested without incident by special agents with the FBI.

Both men are expected to make initial court appearances this afternoon – Moore in federal court in Sacramento, and Evens in United States District Court in Los Angeles.

Moore and Evens are charged in a 15-count indictment unsealed after they were arrested this morning. The indictment charges both men with conspiracy, seven counts of unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information and seven counts of aggravated identity theft.

Emphasis added. Although plenty of fawning fans send Moore naked selfies, the FBI says his empire was built on outright hacking:

The pictures were submitted without the victim's permission for purposes of revenge. However, to obtain more photos to populate the site, Moore allegedly instructed Evens to gain unauthorized access to – in other words, to hack into – victims' e-mail accounts. Moore sent payments to Evens in exchange for nude photos obtained unlawfully from the victims' accounts. Moore then posted the illegally obtained photos on his website, without the victims' consent. The indictment alleges that Evens hacked into email accounts belonging to hundreds of victims.

Emphasis added.

When you combine this serious indictment (which can be read in full below) with his self-confessed lifestyle of aggressively, gleefully violating personal privacy rights and doing a bunch of blow, this will be no easy case for the defense.

Jennifer Lawrence: Engaged to Nicholas Hoult?

Rumors are swirling that everyone's imaginary best friend Jennifer Lawrence and her hunky beau Nicholas Hoult are tying the knot. This pair is certainly talented, attractive and totally adorable... but are the reports true ?

OK! Magazine claimed that a wedding was in the works for the stunning Oscar winner, yet their cover story is false. Sorry to break it to you, ladies and gents. (What? Were you expecting an invite?) The magazine reported Hoult “proposed to her in front of her family” over the holidays. According to OK!, Hoult asked J. Law for her hand while her family looked on and her bling is “worth about $250,000.” Their "insider" went on to say that “Jennifer is walking on air! She’s madly in love with Nicholas and is the happiest she’s ever been.” A source for Gossip Cop confirmed the false report, though, saying very simply: “This is completely untrue.” Hey, the girl can't have it all! She's already got a world famous hair 'do, a hit film and just maybe a second Oscar in her future.

Nomura Comments of Developing Kingdom of Hearts III for Playstation 4

Japanese developer Tetsuya Nomura in a recent interview to Famitsu (most popular Japanese magazine) commented on developing Kingdom of Hearts III for Playstation 4. The quotes from Nomura are pretty interesting. Read them all below:

Kingdom of Hearts 3"Looking at the PS4, I thought "they've gone too far." I wish they would just let us off the hook. For the player, having a game that's "thoroughly made" makes them excited with anticipation, but for a developer, it's a hurdle we have to overcome.

The number of things we have to do keeps increasing and if we keep trying to expand as far as it will go, we'll never be finished. I think we're going to end up being faced with the choice of what to keep and what to give up on [for Kingdom Hearts III].

I really felt the immense response to the Kingdom Hearts III announcement and so it's now my task to figure out how to satisfy all those people who are looking forward to it.

There have been a lot of different consoles in the past, but I feel that this one is the biggest mountain we've had to climb yet, in a good way"

‘Wonder Woman’ Gal Gadot Signs Three-Picture Deal with Warner Bros.

Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress who was recently cast as Wonder Woman, has signed a three-picture deal with Warner Bros., Variety has confirmed.
We’re told Gadot will play the role in not only the upcoming Batman-Superman pic, but in a Justice League movie and a Wonder Woman standalone film.
The Israeli entertainment show “Good Evening with Gai Pines” reported that Gadot will earn $300,000 per film.
Limiting the deal to three pictures makes sense for Warners, since the studio still doesn’t know how auds will react to Wonder Woman in the untitled Batman-Superman movie. Since its taken so long to find the right parts to make a Wonder Woman movie work, WB and DC don’t want to rush into a large commitment if fans are still not drawn to a standalone movie featuring the character.
The untitled Batman-Superman film was originally scheduled to open next year, but has been pushed back to May 6, 2016.

Grey’s Anatomy stars Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have closed new two-year deals with ABC that has them staying on Shonda Rhimes’ venerable medical soap through Seasons 11 and 12, TVLine has learned.

Although ABC hasn’t formally renewed Grey’s beyond its current 10th season, the newly-brokered Pompeo/Dempsey pacts all but confirm that ABC intends to keep the show (and Meredith and Derek) around for years to come.

No word yet on the future of fellow “Originals” Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr. and Sara Ramirez, whose contracts are also set to expire at season’s end. (Although Ramirez isn’t technically an original, she’s on the same renegotiation schedule as the others.) Sandra Oh, meanwhile, is set to depart in May.

How I Met Your Mother 200th Episode First Look: The Mother's Story Revealed!

The Mother takes center stage in Monday’s 200th episode of How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8/7c), and we’ve got your first look at the familiar scenes — and roommate! — the CBS sitcom will revisit, albeit from a different angle.

The milestone half-hour tells the story of what the titular mama was up to in the eight years before she met Ted. As such, viewers will once again glimpse that night Ted visited Cindy (returning guest star Rachel Bilson, Hart of Dixie) and got his first peek at the mom, not to mention the bachelor’s fateful first day teaching in the wrong classroom. But this time, it’s all told from The Mother’s point of view.

“Our 100th episode was very much a celebration of the cast – not that the cast doesn’t deserve celebrating even more after 200 episodes – but this is a different kind of story,” says executive producer Carter Bays. “It’s about the tale. It felt like a different kind of 200th episode, but it felt like the right one to do in terms of the greater story of the show.”

Madonna Rumored To Be Playing Amnesty International Concert In Brooklyn

Earlier this week it was announced that the massive Amnesty International concert at Barclays Center on February 5th will feature two members of Pussy Riot, who were just released from Russian prison camps last month. The concert is a return to the Amnesty concerts of the 1980s and '90s (they stopped in 1998), and in that spirit some legendary talent has been expected to return with it—we now have it on good authority that Madonna has been confirmed to play at the show.

SwEGGie Saga '14 : Radio Station Gives Bieber The Silent Treatment +Adidas Standing By Bieber


A radio station in Canada is trying to do what Scooter Braun can't ... get Justin Bieber into rehab ... but the station has a secret weapon.

Hot 89.9 in Ottawa just radioed out to its listeners -- Justin is persona non grata on its airwaves UNTIL he checks himself into a facility to get badly needed help for drug abuse.

So far Justin has laughed off all attempts to get him into treatment. 

Sounds good in theory ... but seriously, the guy hasn't had a hit in a while so who's gonna really notice?

HBO shitcans 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies', renews 'Getting On'

HBO's Family Tree and Hello Ladies will not return for second seasons, while talks are underway for a potential second season of Getting On.

HBO has decided to not move forward with second runs of the comedy series from Christopher Guest and Stephen Merchant, respectively. Hello Ladies, however, will wrap up with a comedy special.

Hello Ladies opened in September to 463,000 total viewers before slipping in subsequent weeks. The eight-episode freshman season wrapped its run on Nov. 17. Family Tree launched in May to 541,000 viewers, leveling off during its eight-episode run, which ended in July.

For HBO, the news comes as the premium outlet is set to launch at least two new comedies this year: Mike Judge's Silicon Valley, which is due in the spring, and Jonathan Groff comedy Looking, which bowed to a lackluster 338,000 viewers on Sunday. HBO also recently handed out a series order to Togetherness, a comedy from the Duplass brothers, and renewed Looking lead-in Girls for a fourth season.

On the development side, HBO is prepping comedies Ballers, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and The Brink, toplined by Jack Black and Tim Robbins.

While ratings are important for HBO in making renewal decisions, the premium outlet also considers shelf space, awards season recognition, critical reviews and social media buzz, as well as if the series makes financial sense for the network. While none of the three shows have broad appeal, HBO's brand is to mix tentpoles (i.e., Game of Thrones) with more narrowly focused fare like Getting On and Looking.



Pharrell ‘Speechless’ Ahead of Oscars, GRAMMY Awards

A week before his big night at the Grammy Awards, Pharrell is happy — and speechless — over his Oscar nomination.

The producer-rapper-singer's "Happy," from the "Despicable Me 2" soundtrack, is nominated for best original song.

"Uh, speechless," Pharrell said in an interview Thursday after the nominations were announced. "Man, I am over the moon."

He was then speechless, trying to recall what he was doing when he got the news.

"Man, I'm sorry, I don't know," he said.

Pharrell was writing a "thank you" speech to radio stations for playing the upbeat song, which jumped 42 spots to No. 56 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. The song is a No. 1 hit in the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, France, Germany and Switzerland.

The Oscar nomination is another highlight in his massively successful year: He was the producer of two of 2013's biggest anthems — Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." Both songs are nominated for record of the year and best pop duo/group performance at the Grammy Awards.

The 40-year-old has seven nominations, tied in second place with Daft Punk, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Kendrick Lamar. Jay Z, the Grammy leader, has nine nominations.

Judge Judy to Launch New Daytime Show

Judge Judy will be bringing daytime viewers back to the bench in the fall, this time with a new show.

Hot Bench,” from CBS TV Distribution, has been sold in 75% of the country, including stations in the CBS TV Stations, Tribune Broadcasting Company, Sinclair Broadcast Group, among others. Syndie court strip will air mostly in afternoon and early-fringe timeslots.

Created by Sheindlin, “Hot Bench” features a panel of three judges hearing court cases, arguing the merits of the case amongst themselves, and rendering a verdict.

“When my husband Jerry and I were in Ireland recently, we visited the courts and watched a three judge bench, which I found both fascinating and compelling,” Sheindlin said. “I immediately thought what a terrific and unique idea for a television program that brings the court genre to the next level. We have assembled three individuals with extremely varied backgrounds to serve as the judges. They are smart and talented, with terrific instincts and great chemistry, and are sure to create a ‘hot bench.’


Your daytime favs aren't safe!

Harry Styles makes peace offering to Mark Wahlberg with an invite to a 1D gig

The Hollywood hard man threatened to "beat the crap" out of the pop god (l o l) if they ever met.

So it's a brave/stupid move by lady magnet Harry to actually arrange a meeting. But those hoping for a Celebrity Deathmatch-type clash will be disappointed.

Harry has followed Michael Jackson's motto by proving he's a lover not a fighter. The pop hunk has invited Mark and his family to a VIP night at one of his group's US stadium gigs this summer.

Harry reached out through his US advisers to offer Mark - who was a teen pop heartthrob in the 1990s as Marky Mark - tickets and backstage passes at one of their Where We Are shows in Boston.

An insider said: "Harry saw the clip of Mark threatening to beat him up online and thought what he said was very funny. He is a big fan of his movies so he wanted to say that he appreciated his humour. He told his US team to contact Mark and offer him and his family the full VIP treatment."

The Ted star spoke about his kids' love for 1D when he went on a US chat show.

Claiming that he could no longer get a look-in with his daughters because of Harry and co, Mark joked: "The girls have turned to One Direction and they don't care about Daddy. My four-year-old's going, 'Daddy, I like Harry'. And I'm like, 'Well I'm gonna punch Harry in the nose when I see him'. She pulls out pictures of him and she is hiding pictures in the room and I pretend I'm ripping them up and I get jealous. But if I see that little pr*ck, he's gonna get it."

I'm guessing Harry's big burly security team will be on hand just in case!

American Horror Story's Gabourey Sidibe on That Time She and Her Castmates Got into a Bar Brawl

The witches of American Horror Story: Coven may prefer stabbing each other in the back, but Gabourey Sidibe reveals that, in real life, the cast members have one another's backs no matter what.

Sidibe was on Chelsea Lately Wednesday night to talk about a recent bar fight the AHS:C cast found themselves in during a night on the town in New Orleans. The whole thing started when a woman glitter-bombed Sarah Paulson, which led to a full-on brawl.

At one point, Sidibe revealed, she tried to calm down one of the combatants by calling him "homie," a moniker he did not take kindly to.

Thora Birch: How Hollywood's Darling Disappeared

Hollywood has never been kind to its young. It is an industry that famously venerates youth and, infamously, has casually destroyed so many young people, used them up then discarded them, that to list them all would fill this entire article. The film business loves to look at young people, but has less than zero interest in looking after them. Some are destroyed over a long period, such as Judy Garland, some barely have time to draw breath, such as River Phoenix. And then are the other less sensational but no less instructive stories of the young people whose hopes were raised by the industry, but find themselves whimsically discarded.

Aaron Eckhart Pretended to Lose a Child in Support Group for Rabbit Hole

Actor Aaron Eckhart was a guest on The Howard Stern Show on Jan. 21 where he opened up about his drastic acting tactics while preparing for the 2010 film Rabbit Hole with Nicole Kidman.

When host Howard Stern said he'd learned that Eckhart, 45, had visited a support group for parents who lost children and proceeded to pretend to have lost a child himself, the I, Frankenstein actor tried to explain.

"It's rude," the childless actor admitted. "It's very sensitive to go in there, of course it is. I did the research. The gathering is very quiet. There's 10 people, couples. [Their children had passed away] very recently, it's fresh. You're sitting in sort of a circle. Then one person goes, then two, three, then it gets to me. And by that point you're just so flushed that you just start going and giving the details of the story."

Eckhart revealed he got entirely wrapped up in the experience, and even had an emotional breakdown.

"Oh yeah, 100 percent, I lost it," he said. "You really believe that you just lost a child. You are as close to reality in that sense as possible. I don't want to be rude to people who have lost a child, but yeah, you feel right there, you feel like your character."

Eckhart's Rabbit Hole costar, Nicole Kidman, did not choose to participate, and the actor laughed off the idea of her joining him when talking to Stern, joking, "No, she was in the Bahamas or somewhere."

Eckhart also revealed that he's never booked an acting gig based off of an audition. He thinks that's because he requires props and other actors to work off of to give the best performance possible.

Lauren Graham's CW Dramedy Snags an Unfamous Title (But What About a Pick-Up?)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

With The CW expected to start formally ordering pilots in the coming days, new details are emerging (OK, a single detail — but it’s a biggie!) about one of the network’s buzziest properties: TheLauren Graham-penned dramedy based on the Parenthood star’s debut novel, Someday, Someday Maybe.

According to sources, the project — which follows a young woman nearing the end of a self-imposed time limit to find success as an actress in New York City — is going by the working title Unfamous. Graham is an exec-producer alongside Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman (The Change-Up).

Earlier this month at the Television Critics Association winter tour, CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed that Graham’s pilot script had been submitted and called it “excellent,” adding, “It’s under consideration.

“We have only so many slots,” he continued. “We’re going to probably do the same amount of pilots we did last year. So we’re going to have to determine whether or not it fits within any of those slots.”

The fact that Unfamous is one of The CW’s few non-genre pilot scripts in the pipeline may actually work in its favor. Pedowitz himself recently acknowledged to The Hollywood Reporter, “At some point we will be oversaturated with genre, and we’ll move back to the family genre. It feels like we’re slowly getting there.”



Wendy Williams: "Justin Bieber's parents have failed him in every possible way"

Wendy comments on the Bieber situation from 0:00-3:23, then goes further into the "my son doesn't like me" bit from a few days ago (you can also watch Wendy's interview on The View but I'm assuming it's region-locked).

She also talks about The Wanted breaking up, Jon and Kate Gosselin, and the revival of "Murder, She Wrote" getting canned.

Britney Spears is surprisingly selling fantastic in Vegas

Britney Spears’ residency is the top Las Vegas show of the year at online ticket retailer StubHub.
Britney: Piece Of Me, which began Dec. 27 at Planet Hollywood, has already outsold Las Vegas residencies by Celine Dion, Elton John, Shania Twain and Rod Stewart on StubHub’s 2013/2014 list. It is also the third highest-selling Las Vegas residency ever, behind only Celine Dion’s show which began in 2011 and Elton John’s, which began in 2009.
Spears has only performed four shows so far, but tickets are available through September.
StubHub declined to provide exact sales figures, but said 14% of all tickets sold for her show so far this year were for her February 14 show.

Squeaky-clean Selena Gomez pictured buying cigarettes morning after ex Justin Bieber's DUI arrest

They're the first pictures of Selena Gomez to emerge in the wake of ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's arrest in Miami for DUI in the early hours of Thursday morning.

And in an uncharacteristic move for the squeaky-clean star, she shocked fans as she stopped to pick up a packet of Djarum cigarettes shortly after leaving home in Tarzana, California.

The actress gave little away as she shielded her eyes behind large black Ray-Ban sunglasses, though she appeared to be putting on a brave face as she plastered on a decidedly awkward grin while her love sat in jail on the other side of the country.

Some Guy from Haven to Adapt YA Sci-Fi Series for TV

'These Broken Stars' Heads to Television

These Broken Stars, the launch title of the Starbound science-fiction trilogy, will be adapted for the small screen. The TV version of Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner's novel, which was published by Disney-Hyperion in December 2013, will have four executive producers: actor, writer, director, and producer Eric Balfour; producer Stephanie Varella, founder with Balfour of Off the Grid Entertainment, an independent film production company; former NBC president Warren Littlefield; and Martin Berneman, founder of the entertainment management company Precision Entertainment.

Stephen Moore, an agent with The Kohner Agency, a Los Angeles talent and literary agency, represents Kaufman and Spooner for film and television projects on behalf of Adams Literary. (Tracey and Josh Adams of Adams Literary represent the authors for publishing projects.) “All these parties bring something to the table,” said Moore: “Littlefield his connections and pedigree, Balfour his star power, Berneman and Varella the skill to put the whole thing together.”

Kaufman and Spooner, who met online in 2006 via their “mutual fandoms,” began writing together before they met in person a year later. “We’d create characters and write scenes together for fun,” explained Spooner. “These Broken Stars started off that way, too, and we played with the main characters of Lilac and Tarver for over a year before it occurred to us that if we found them so much fun, maybe others would too, and we should give writing a novel a try.”

The authors also spent time deliberating on the backdrop for their story. “I wanted the setting to be a shipwreck, and Meg wanted the story to be about space,” said Kaufman. “A shipwreck in space was the result, and the characters stemmed naturally from that setting. We’ve both been science fiction fans since we were tiny, so it felt natural to write a science fiction trilogy together.”

The Internet facilitated the writing process for Spooner, who now lives in Asheville, N.C., and Kaufman, whose home is in Melbourne, Australia. They were able to do their initial brainstorming for the trilogy face-to-face, as Spooner was living in Australia at the time (and was also finishing her debut novel, Skylark). When it came to the actual writing, they relied on e-mail to collaborate.

Maleficent’ to Feature ‘Once Upon a Dream’ cover by Lana Del Rey

According to a new listing on Amazon, Disney will release a cover of the Sleeping Beauty classic, ‘Once Upon A Dream’ as performed by Lana Del Rey for the original motion picture soundtrack of its upcoming film, Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie. The single will release on January 26.

The news comes shortly after Walt Disney Studios teased the news that they will air a special sneak peek at the film during the Grammy Awards on CBS this Sunday. Presumably the spot will feature the new track.

Maleficent explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

The following is the teaser for the exclusive sneak peek airing on Sunday:
[short clip]

Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. It will debut in theaters on May 30, 2014.

Soundtrack Legend Riz Ortolani Dies at 87

By Brock Thiessen

Marking some tragic news in the film world today, esteemed Italian soundtrack composer Riz Ortolani has passed away. According to Italian news reports, Ortolani died in Rome this evening (January 23) due to complications with bronchitis. He was 87.

While not as esteemed as fellow cinematic scorer Ennio Morricone, Ortolani left a huge mark on the world of cinema and music. Born on March 25, 1926, in Pesaro, Italy, as Riziero Ortolani, the composer worked with such directors as Lucio Fulci, Damiano Damiani, Ruggero Deodato, Vittorio De Sica, Pupi Avati and many others over the course of his long career, venturing into everything from giallo films to spaghetti westerns to exploitation flicks and mondo cinema.

Among Ortolani's best known works is 1962's Mondo Cane, whose main theme "More" won a Grammy and was also nominated for an Oscar. Over the years, the track was covered by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Judy Garland to Herb Alpert.

Ortolani is also well-known for his musical contributions to the controversial cult classic Cannibal Holocaust, whose guitar-led theme would go on to stand as one of cinema's most moving and eerily haunting movements.

But while Ortolani's career was long and prolific, he also had a mark on modern cinema as well, with Quentin Tarantino using his works in the director's Kill Bill films, as well as in 2012's Django Unchained. Ortolani's song "Oh My Love," sung by his wife Katyna Ranieri, would also appear in Nicolas Winding Refn's 2011 film Drive.

Besides his film score work, Ortolani established the Pesaro Riz Ortolani Foundation to promote music through scholarships, seminars, debates, concerts and exhibitions.

Sadly, Katyna Ranieri and Ortolani were to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in the next few days. Along with Katyna, he leaves two sons, Henry and Rizia.

Ortolani's funeral will be held in Rome on Saturday (January 25) in the Church of the Artists of the Piazza del Popolo.

Louis Tomlinson teams up with hospice Bluebell Wood for charity

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Louis Tomlinson really has become a knight in shining armour for all staff, children and volunteers at North Anston's Bluebell Wood Hospice, after the One Direction hunk teamed up with his local charity to design a limited edition bag featuring the singer's autograph and Bluebell Wood logo.

The 22-year-old dish from Doncaster has been serving as Patron for the children's hospital, pledging his support for all they do.

Directioners across the globe, and anyone else who wants to raise money for the worthy cause will be able to get their hands on the aptly titled 'Louis Bag' as it's sold online. They will also be made available in all of the eight Bluebell Wood charity shops throughout the region.

Gushing over the charity so close to his heart, Louis revealed: “I’m so pleased to be able to support Bluebell Wood, my local charity, by putting my name on the bag. I really hope it raises lots of money for this fantastic charity.”

Retail manager at the Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, James Bower explained how important Louis' contribution had been, saying: “This bag is an ideal opportunity for us to reach some of our younger supporters. We always try and think of unique ideas and gifts for our stores, so it’s great to have the help of Louis with this bag.”

While Claire Rintoul, the hospice’s chief executive insisted: “We are thrilled to have Louis as one of our patrons, he has really helped raise our profile, not just locally but internationally. The bags are a great opportunity for us to raise much needed funds as our current running costs are over £3 million per year and we receive less than 5% statutory funding.”

But Directioners, you need to be quick, as this rare piece of One Direction memorabilia which is set to change the lives of hundreds of children are sure to fly off the shelves in no time!

The 'Louis Bag' is available online, priced at just £4.99 at www.bluebellwood.org/louisbag or at any of the eight Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice charity shops, which you can find on the Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice website, http://www.bluebellwood.org/about-us/our-shops/

Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love" Edited by British Radio Station


Beyoncé's latest single "Drunk In Love" has landed in hot water over its controversial lyric content.

Bang Radio, a British radio station, has announced this week that they will only air an edited version of the pop song.

The CEO of the company, Jennifer Ogole, has stated that a line from Jay Z's verse has been removed because the rap displays "promotion of domestic violence against women."

The lyric in question is when the rapper says, "Now eat the cake, Anna Mae / I said eat the cake, Anna Mae."

Beyoncé's husband was referencing a line from the film What's Love Got to Do With It, about Tina and Ike Turner's volatile relationship.
