Name & Date For John Oliver's HBO Show

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

HBO has announced the title and premiere date for John Oliver's upcoming comedy. The pay channel confirmed today (February 12) that the new program will be titled Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

Last Week Tonight is slated to premiere on HBO on Sunday, April 27. Oliver will satirize hot-button news issues and pop culture in the half-hour weekly show.

The comic announced his deal with HBO late last year as he departed The Daily Show. He has since acknowledged that Last Week Tonight will share a similar format with The Daily Show.

It'll be similar, cos it is me, talking about stuff," he joked.

Oliver is also currently starring in NBC's Community.


Nickelodean star Drake Bell files for bankruptcy

Drake Bell -- a huge Nickelodeon child actor who starred in "Drake & Josh" -- has filed for bankruptcy ... TMZ has learned. 

The 26-year-old actor just filed legal docs, claiming he's in the hole to the tune of $581,000.

As for the breakdown, Bell lists the value of his house at $1.575 million.  The bad news -- he's underwater, owing $1.597 mil.

Bell says he's only pulling in $2,820 a month, but his expenses total a whopping $18,771.

The fattest year Bell lists is 2012, when he made $408,000, but the next year he made an anemic $14,099.

And Bell owes a bunch of loot in taxes.


So that's why he was constantly so pressed over Bieber.

Beyoncé's personal trainer talks about slimming her down

Beyonce definitely turned heads at this year's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, where the 32-year-old superstar appeared slimmer than ever in a figure-hugging Michael Costello dress -- which the designer estimated was a "tiny" size 2/4.

So how did Beyonce get her incredible body?

Through the help of her trainer and nutritionist Marco Borges, the exercise psychologist and author behind The 22 Day Nutrition that challenges people to go vegan for 22 days. He recently talked to Beth Stern about how Beyonce and Jay-Z agreed to try their much-publicized lifestyle change.

JK Rowling: "Harry did love Ginny"

After The Cuckoo’s Calling, JK Rowling’s second novel writing as Robert Galbraith will be released this year, and the Harry Potter author is enjoying the freedom of writing as a middle-aged army veteran.

“There’s a line in As Good as it Gets,” she said about the 1997 Jack Nicholson film, “where a woman asks him how he writes such wonderful female characters and he says, and I’m paraphrasing, ‘I think of a man, and I take out the logic’, or the sense.

"That made me laugh, as misogynistic as it is, because when I write a man I take certain things out and give free rein to aspects of me that would not be acceptable. To be honest, I think I’m quite blokey — at least I’m told I am, and I like writing both.”

Tom Hiddleston doesn’t want to be “Loki with a lightsaber” in Star Wars 7

Thor star says an offer from J.J Abrams for Star Wars would be “flattering” but says they’ll be looking for people without an “association elsewhere.”

If you were hoping to see Tom Hiddleston in Star Wars 7 it’s not looking too good.

Sure he may have had a jolly old time pulling on the Captain America suit for a bit of a joke on the set of Thor. But viewers need to be able to focus on the specific character Hiddleston says.

“I imagine they’re looking for people who don’t have an association elsewhere. The audience need to believe in the character, rather than saying, ‘Oh look, it’s Loki with a lightsaber!’” Hiddleston tells TimeOut.com.

We all totally want to see that though, right? Thor with his hammer, Loki with a lightsaber. Someone on the internet needs to get on to this. Superheroes with different weapons? It’s a meme in the making.

Hiddleston admits it would be “very flattering” to be asked to join J.J. Abrams’s cast, although says he isn’t sure joining the franchise worked out all that well for Ewan McGregor.

“I did talk to Ewan about it once. When they asked if he wanted to be Obi-Wan Kenobi he said: ‘Are you joking? Of course!’ But his experience didn’t live up to the promise.’”

Sounds like there's a story there, doesn't it? Perhaps they didn’t let him keep his lightsaber.

‘House of Cards’ amazes in season opener

Wow. Just . . . wow.

That’s my immediate reaction to the second-season premiere of “House of Cards,” which will be available Friday on Netflix along with the rest of the season.

Trust me: You don’t want to miss this show. It’s that good.
There’s a reason the series — the first original drama produced by Netflix — snared 14 Emmy nominations last year, including nods for stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. (Neither won, but Wright did win a Golden Globe last month for Best Actress in a Drama.)

The show’s writing, breathless pacing and even its clever use of graphics (visually superimposing phone text messages onto particular scenes) stands head-and-shoulders above most of its TV brethren. And, if you’re a “Breaking Bad” fan who enjoyed that show’s endlessly dark tone — and might not have seen “House of Cards” the first time around — you’ll be spellbound by its spiral into an abyss of immorality (but, unlike “BB,” without the occasional foray into dark comedy).

Simon Cowell To Ask One Direction To Be Godfathers To His Son?

Simon Cowell's girlfriend Lauren Silverman is currently getting ready to give birth to the couple's baby son, but when the media mogul was quizzed on whether or not he will be asking one of the One Direction boys to be godfather, he said that he couldn't because it wouldn't be fair on the other band members.

Ever the loyal boss, Cowell said that despite his closeness to the 1D boys, he won't be asking the boys to be godfathers to the little one because he'd have to ask the entire band.

He explained to Digital Spy: “If you ask one, you've got to ask five, so I don't think I can do that."

It was reported last month that Cowell may have even been using a DOLL to prepare for fatherhood, with former flame Sinitta telling The Sun all the gossip.

The 45-year-old told the paper: "He and Lauren got my daughter Magdalena a doll that can cry and do a wee-wee."

She continued: ''It was funny watching him sitting there with it. One minute he'd turn it one way and it would start crying, then he'd turn it the other way and it would wee on him. He didn't know what to do.''

It sounds like Simon may need some practice with Sinitta also revealing that she was recently on holiday in Barbados with Simon and his pregnant girlfriend when a local handed him their baby.

Sinitta revealed: "Someone handed him a baby to hold on the beach and I've never seen anything so awkward and ridiculous in my life. He didn't know one end from the other."

Plushy retires from skating.

Evgeni Plushenko abruptly withdraws from men's competition

SOCHI, Russia -- Evgeni Plushenko's time at the Sochi Olympics came to an early end.

The Russian was in obvious pain after landing awkwardly on a triple axel during warm-ups Thursday night. Coach Alexei Mishin said Plushenko had hurt his oft-injured back during practice Wednesday, and simply could not skate.

"He was not able to do anything, not according to fair play," Mishin said.

When his name was called, Plushenko came onto the ice slowly, his hands on the small of his balky back. He waved to the home crowd and then skated slowly to the referee.

After his withdrawal was announced, he waved again to the crowd and put his hands on his heart.

Sanaa Lathan Will Make A Trip To Mars In 'Ad Inexplorata' From 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' Produce

Sanaa Lathan will star opposite Mark Strong in an indie sci-fi movie titled Ad Inexplorata, to be written and directed by Mark Elijah Rosenberg, and produced by Beasts of the Southern Wild producers Josh Penn and Matt Parker.

In the film, Strong will play a NASA pilot who's on a one-way mission to Mars, while Lathan will play the Captain of one of four ships making the same trip.

The project, which was developed at the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, is Strong's feature directorial debut. The filmmaker, who also happens to be founder of Rooftop Films, won the 2014 Sundance Institute/NHK Award - an honor that supports filmmakers considered visionary, on their next films.

It's worth noting that Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild) previously won the award.

Sanaa Lathan most recently co-starred in Malcolm D. Lee's The Best Man Holiday.

She's no stranger to sci-fi, after having starred in 2004's AVP: Alien vs. Predator.


concerned this is going to be a clunky low budget mess. but, we'll have to wait and see. I'd rather she was starring in a new TV series she was great on "Nip/Tuck" and what I saw of "Boss".

The Kardashian family gravy train is moving full steam ahead -- with no sign of stopping -- TMZ has learned, Kim and co. will sign on for yet ANOTHER multi-season deal with E! worth more than what they're making on the current one ... and they'll do it without Bruce Jenner.


TMZ broke the story ... "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" was renewed for an additional 3 seasons back in 2012 for more than $40 million -- what was then the richest reality TV deal ever.

But now the Kardashians have outdone themselves -- sources connected to production tell us, the new deal will be worth more than the last.

"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is currently shooting Season 10 and the new deal will take the show into Season 11 and beyond. As one production source put it, "It is a HUGE show."

As for Bruce Jenner, he won't be coming along for the ride -- as we reported, Bruce has decided to call it quits after Season 10 to spend more time doing the other things he loves. Production sources acknowledge Bruce was "fatigued" and hated the criticism that went along with show.

He'll be missed -- but sources tell us, producers aren't concerned about his departure ... he was not a major character.

Our sources will not say if the deal has been signed or if it's still being negotiated ... but it's definitely far enough along that everyone knows the show will be back.

E! is quoting Bruce as saying the story that he's leaving the show is fabricated.  We can tell you ... Bruce WILL NOT be part of the show after this season ... period.


CBS Seeks $500,000 For Ad Slots In ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Finale

Talk about an Eye-popping number: CBS has been seeking half a million dollars from advertisers who want to tuck a 30-second commercial alongside the March 31 series finale of “How I Met Your Mother,” according to people familiar with the negotiations.

Not everyone will pay that sum. Advertisers who bought the program during last year’s “upfront” market, when networks seek to sell the bulk of their ad inventory for the fall season, were able to secure ad berths in the finale for between $300,000 and $350,000, according to these people.

Marketers forking over top dollar to be in the “HIMYM” finale will be paying a significant premium for the show compared to its normal run in the season. According to a recent Variety survey of primetime ad prices for the 2013-2014 season, the average cost of a 30-second spot in the show was $169,364. The series stars Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, and Cristin Milioti.

“People are paying for the expectation of a great audience delivery, and they want to be part of something everyone talks about the next day,” said Dean Kaplan, exec veep of sales strategy, planning and administration at the network. CBS has only a “handful” of ad slots remaining in the series finale of the show, said Chris Simon, exec veep of sales at CBS.

Harry Styles Admits He Can Get 'Quite Soppy' In Relationships

Harry Styles may be the perfect boyfriend in ladies' eyes across the globe and the One Direction hunk is now set to score even more brownie points, as he admits in an interview that he can get "quite soppy" when he's in a relationship.

Speaking to Teen Now magazine, Harry said in an interview that was conducted towards the end of the band's last world tour, that it's hard to date girls when you are constantly on the road because as soon as you get connected, it's time to leave again. Styles, who has been romantically linked to Kendall Jenner recently, said: “Touring is so hard and it’s difficult to get to know someone in a day. You don’t get enough time to meet somebody and say, ‘I really like you. Do you want to come on the road for a bit?’ We’re rarely anywhere for even two days at the moment.” Before he then added: “I can get quite soppy when it comes to girls, especially when I really like them.”

And despite Harry's bandmate Zayn Malik being engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, he also admitted to the mag that it's still hard for him to open up, saying: “I don’t ever really show my emotions. Maybe that will change when I get older.But, it seems like Liam Payne shows enough emotion for everyone, saying: “I’ve never written a love letter, but when I’m in a relationship I’m a big softie,” adding: “If I dumped a girl and then they cried, I’d instantly get back with them.”


Tell us something we don't already know, Zayn.  And awww Liam and Harry, qt boyfriends.

Photos recently popped up online with a bandage around Bruce's neck after having a surgical procedure.

Casey Pascal, Mia Farrow's childhood friend, speaks out on Woody Allen abuse case

The woman who was the whistleblower over shocking claims that Woody Allen abused his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow today describes the star’s extraordinary ‘obsession’ with the little girl. Casey Pascal raised the alarm after her babysitter claimed to see the Oscar-winning director with his head in his seven-year-old daughter’s lap.

And today she speaks out following a torrid month in which Dylan, now 28, published full details of Allen’s alleged abuse - which was swiftly followed by a furious denial from the star. Mother-of-three Casey, who has been close friends with Mia Farrow since childhood, enjoyed lazy summer days in Connecticut with the actress and her brood - but claims she felt so uncomfortable around Allen that she would never have left her own children alone with him.

Drake Speaks on Relationship With Rihanna: 'She’s the ultimate fantasy'

Drake also discussed his relationship with Rihanna, whom he was linked to since 2010. In June of 2010, Drake told The New York Times that he was a “pawn” to Rihanna as she disappeared after they hooked up. A week after, Drake clarified those comments to MTV News by saying it was rare for a woman to “makes me feel nervous or makes me feel small.”
In his latest Rolling Stone interview over three and a half years later, Drake is a changed man when it comes to pursuing Rihanna:
“She’s the ultimate fantasy. I mean, I think about it. Like ‘Man, that would be good’. We have fun together, she’s cool and shit. But we’re just friends, she’s my dog for life.

He says he doesn't have a girlfriend. "I'm not after pussy like I was three years ago, when I was trying to make up for all the years when no girl would talk to me,"
he says. "But I haven't met somebody that makes everybody else not matter.

A Galentine's Goop Giving Gift Guide, An ONTD Original


With Valentine's Day fast upon us, it is important to remind those of us we love just how much that love costs them. Whether they purchase us flowers, jewelry or our favorite candy (in my case, that is chocolate coated air - recipe below), what is most important is that they realize it will never be enough to quench that unyielding misery and contempt that permeates the relationship. However, if the realization that we are truly alone in this world and that no amount of worldly possessions or cliched romantic gestures will ever fill that soul crushing void is too much of a statement for Valentine's (it's more of an Arbor Day declaration anyway) then try and buy love the goop way! Below are 5 items Gwyneth Paltrow currently has for sale on her website that are perfect last minute Valentine's gifts to show your sweetie that you truly feel, like, (shrug) whatever, about them.

If like my husband, you think your wife might be a "late in life lesbian" this Crippen white jake shirt is "crippin" amazing! As white as Gwyneth herself, this shirt is the perfect embodiment of your relationship - the six buttons represent the 6 times you've caught your husband groping the house staff while the starchy white is indicative of the sterile nature of your sex life; not to mention that it has been so long since you let your husband touch you you are basically a born again virgin. At just $345 it is a steal because fuck it, we'll be dead soon anyway.

So Gwyneth once told me hoops earrings were *her* thing and I wasn't allowed to wear them anymore but, I guess she's totally cool with it now. I am not personally familiar with Me & Ro but it does remind me of the Rosie O'Donnell lesbiafamily cruise which always seemed like a real finger blast so I say go ahead and get em, cuz like I said, fuck it, every breath we take makes us closer to obliteration.

Lil' Kim: "I'm Still Going to be Hardcore" After Baby

Pregnancy looks good on her! Lil' Kim made a surprise announcement in NYC on Wednesday, Feb. 12 that she's expecting her first child. But before taking the stage at The Blonds Fashion Week after-party (with her baby bump!) the rapper revealed to Us Weekly what food she's been craving, and how her out-there fashion choices will need to take a backseat for the time being.

"I'm so excited, overjoyed! In heaven, waiting for my little sunshine," the 39-year-old entertainer told Us at the bash, hosted by MAC Cosmetics at Gilded Lily. The expectant mom-to-be looked stunning in a tight-fitted graphic dress that accentuated her growing belly.

"I can't wear corsets and all my favorite sexy clothes [anymore]," she said of how her style has changed since getting pregnant. "But it's a very beautiful thing and I'm so thrilled." She added that her go-to outfit is the same one every day. "Sweats, my comfy pajamas, but mainly my comfy loose fitting sweats, but you know they're cute."

Some of her clothes may have to collect dust in her closet for now, but being pregnant also has its perks! "Pizza! Everyday Pizza!" she said of her recent cravings. "A lot of vegetable pizza, because before I didn't eat vegetable pizza as much, but now I'm craving the vegetables."

Lil' Kim performed "Lighters Up" for the crowd Wednesday night, reassuring Us that she'll continue working even after her little bundle of joy arrives. "I'm still going to be hardcore. This baby has made me even more of a beast!"

"I think in another month or two I'll start trying to exercise," she said of prenatal workouts. "My doctor is helping me through everything with being healthy and I feel so good right now. I'm still going to work. I'm going to be a working mom! New music and all that."

Air New Zealand's new swimsuit safety video: Fun or offensive?

Air New Zealand's latest in-flight safety video, released Tuesday, is already another viral hit but is encountering some turbulence over its use of several bikini-clad Sports Illustrated models.

Previous versions of the video -- starring anything from Hobbits to Bear Grylls to New Zealand's all conquering All Blacks rugby team -- have revolutionized the on-board safety message airlines deliver to passengers.

The most recent effort though is being criticized by some as neither ground-breaking nor as creative, after the airline teamed up with Sports Illustrated magazine to produce what it's calling "the world's most beautiful safety video."

Rolling Stone Magazine -- Quit Your Bitching, Drake ... We Warned You About Cover Change

Drake has no business attacking Rolling Stone or Philip Seymour Hoffman because the magazine gave him advance notice it was dropping him from the cover in favor of PSH.

Sources close to Drake tell TMZ the rapper feels like he was "tricked" because ... "He only did the interview if he was going to be on the cover."

But we've learned Drake was interviewed on January 28, and the photo shoot was also completed before PSH died on Feb. 2.

A rep for RS says this happens all the time when musicians and actors die -- most recently when Lou Reed and Whitney Houston passed away.

Further, sources tell us Drake's camp was told last Friday he wouldn't be on the cover when the mag was released Wednesday. The RS rep would not say if they offered Drake a future cover.

For what it's worth ... Drake has deleted his tweets about the RS cover and Hoffman.


Faye Dunaway Was A Nightmare During Making Of “Mommie Dearest,” Remembers Costar

You can put this on record: Faye made life very difficult. [Costume designer] Irene Sharaff, who had come out of retirement to do it, said, ‘That woman is on cocaine!’ She walked off the film midway and said, ‘I’m going back to New York and not returning, because of Faye. I have never walked off a movie in my entire career… You can enter Faye Dunaway’s dressing room, but first throw a raw steak in there to distract her.’ I never saw any drug use, but I saw the erratic behavior and mood swings, which happen for a reason.”

“My first day on the set with her, she did the upstage routine where she made sure that my face was not on camera, an old theater trick. I couldn’t believe it –– she’s the star! I couldn’t complain to our director Frank Perry, a sweet man who’d lost control of his set, so I decided to help her upstage me. I upstaged myself all day long, and then she kind of relaxed. So, after that she was a little more gentle with me, but I also learned to get out of the way and hide a lot [laughs]. I’m sure if I stayed around long enough I’d be under fire, too. She has that tremendous insecurity where everyone’s competition when you’re the star.”

Did You Know the McCONAISSANCE and Janet Jackson Had an Ab-tastic Fling in 2002?

Long before Matthew McConaughey met his now-wife at a bar in L.A., the actor had plenty of famous leading ladies. He dated Sandra Bullock, Penelope Cruz, Ashley Judd, and even had a fling Janet Jackson.

Yes, that's right: McConaughey had a brief tryste with Michael Jackson's sister over a decade ago and it was seriously ab-tastic.

The First Meeting: These two met at the 2002 Grammy Awards and it's not hard to see how they were instantly attracted to each other — since Jackson happened to be showing off her eight-pack abs in an off-the-shoulder crop top at the time. (She was a decade ahead of Miley on that one.) Anyway, the exercise-obsessed stars apparently hit it off that night and even took a couple of pictures together backstage.

Time Together: Here are those Grammy pictures.

Jennifer Connelly, Mélanie Laurent and Cillian Murphy premiere Aloft in Berlin

 photo header_zps87fa137a.jpg

Jennifer Connelly, Mélanie Laurent and Cillian Murphy walked the Berlinale red carpet last night for the premiere of Claudia Llosa's Aloft. They were joined by their director and co-stars William Shimell and real life brothers Winta and Zen McGrath.

Synopsis: Aloft tells the story of a struggling mother, Nana Kunning (Jennifer Connelly) and her evolution into a renowned artist and healer. When a young journalist (Mélanie Laurent) tracks down her son Ivan (Cillian Murphy) 20 years after Nana abandoned him, she sets in motion an encounter between the two at the very edge of the earth that will bring the very meaning of their lives into question, and force them to contemplate living life to its fullest, despite the distance between them and the uncertainties littering their paths.

I really love this cast, even though the early reviews make the film seem rather blah and pretentious. Mélanie's red carpet antics made for great photos!

Lots more pics from the premiere and a photo-call earlier in the day below the cut.

Madonna doesn't listen to her own music

Copy of har84jpg00295jb8mt

The Queen of Pop has just revealed that she cannot stand her own music when she's exercising.

With 30 years in the music industry under her belt, the music icon told ET Canada, "I hate my music!" When she was asked about her exercise regimen and what Madonna music she loves working out to, Madonna may have shocked some of her fans with her response.

"I'm sick of it - like turn it off!" declared the Material Girl. Of course Queen Madge was exaggerating as she really does love her work and has a lot of pride in it. ''I love my music, but I'm just kind of sick of it. I like to hear other people's music when I work out.''

Don't worry loyal Madonna fans, the iconic singer does follow up the statement with, "Remixes are good! Remixes of my music are good because they reinvent them."

Katy Perry Stripper FIRED After Photo Leak

One of the strippers who posed with Katy Perry inside a Santa Barbara strip club has been FIRED for violating the Cardinal rule ... taking pics of their encounter and making them public.

Sources tell TMZ ... honchos from Spearmint Rhino's corporate offices marched over to the Santa Barbara location earlier this week and promptly fired Cassidy (her stripper name) in front of all the other girls.

23-year-old Cassidy -- pictured above on the right -- was one of the girls working Super Bowl night, when Katy rolled in with boyfriend John Mayer and dropped stacks all over the place.

Cassidy, Katy, and other dancers posed for several photos ... TMZ obtained the pics and posted them a couple days later -- and management was pissed.

We're told Cassidy -- who has a child -- violated her club's "no cameras" rule by taking the photos and making them public and that's why she got canned.

We're told Cassidy was fired in front of all the other girls to send a clear message ... don't mess with client privacy, or else.

poor dat..she knew what she was doing. Have you ever been fired in front of co workers?

What really happened on the Blue is the Warmest Colour set

The swirl of hostility, accusations and counter-accusations, retribution and jeering from the wings that has enveloped Blue is the Warmest Colour, the French erotic epic that was the toast of last year's Cannes Film Festival, makes most of Hollywood's catfights look pale by comparison. ''Directors and actors being what they are, they like a good argument,'' wrote a commentator in a piece comparing the saga with other screen clashes. ''On one side are obsessive perfectionists, on the other self-involved exhibitionists, or so the theory goes.'' Is this true of the Blue winning team? Almost certainly, but with the added spice of Frenchness.

Blue is the Warmest Colour is quite extraordinary. The film, directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, a French director of Tunisian origin widely regarded as one of French cinema's small handful of masters, is the story of a great passion between two teenage girls. It traces their affair from flirtation through a bitter break-up and its melancholy aftermath with such force of feeling that you seem to be living their lives yourself.

So overwhelmed were the members of the Cannes jury that they decided to give the Palme D'Or not only to the director, but, in an unprecedented move, to the two actresses, Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos, as well.

The thrilled threesome were pictured on the red carpet kissing and hugging. In private, says Kechiche, Seydoux wept with joy.

Colin Farrell Calls Sober Sex "Terrifying", Talks Sex Tape

Looks like liquor isn't the only thing that loosens tongues! Former bad boy Colin Farrell opened up in the March 2014 issue of Elle magazine about his post-rehab sex life and the actor's infamous sex tape with Playboy model Nicole Narain. Farrell, 37, briefly dated Narain, 39, in 2003, when she recorded a sex tape featuring the Saving Mr. Banks star. In 2006, the father of two sued after the 14-minute tape was released.

"The whole thing was horrifying," Farrell recalled to Elle. "I was deposed for four hours explaining why I didn't want it to be released. God forbid, it's an on-demand movie in a hotel room and my mother says, 'Oh, I haven't seen this work of my son's,' and hits purchase."

Zayn Malik 'Annoyed' To Be Only One Direction Star Without Driving License

When Liam Payne passed his driving test earlier this year, he left Zayn Malik as the only member of One Direction without a pink driving license - and it would seem he's not chuffed about it. Noel Gaughan, who previously taught Niall Horan, has claimed that Liam and Zayn were in direct competition to be the next one to pass their tests. He told the Sunday Times that he'll make sure it isn't too long before Perrie Edwards' husband-to-be is on the road “Next is Zayn. He will be annoyed to be the last in the band to take his test but I’ll make sure he passes," he said.

It seems that Liam needed to get used to not being amazing at everything when he first sat behind the wheel, as Noel says that the singer's massive popularity may have given him a massive boost of confidence on the road. Maybe too massive. “I imagine he has been told how great he is all the time so it’s understandable," Noel mused. Noel also joked that he scared the boys by telling them they'd have to work twice as hard in their tests - because their examiners would be The Wanted fans. Ouch.

Leonardo DiCaprio Reveals He Turned Down 'Hocus Pocus'

Leonardo DiCaprio recently revealed that he turned down “more money than I ever dreamed of” to star in the film Hocus Pocus.

He instead opted to audition for the What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, which would net him his first Academy Award nomination.

“I don’t know where the hell I got the nerve,” Leonardo told Variety. “You live in an environment where you’re influenced by people telling you to make a lot of money and strike while the iron’s hot. But if there’s one thing I’m very proud of, it’s being a young man who was sticking to my guns.”
