Shia LaBeouf Wears the Same Outfit to the Gym & Meeting


Shia LaBeouf tries to camouflage himself with a backpack while heading for a gym workout on Friday (May 16) in West Hollywood, Calif.

Earlier in the week, the 27-year-old actor wore a “Pennsylvania Senior Games” t-shirt while hitting the gym and arriving for a meeting at The Standard Hotel.

Last week, Shia showed off his neon green workout outfit while heading to the gym.

“MEDITATING in the #MEMEWHILE @AutoItaliaLive,” Shia recently tweeted.

Rihanna Praises Viral Vogueing EMT Driver

Move over every single YouTube video of people singing and dancing to Pharrell Williams's "Happy," there's a new viral video in town that will put all the rest to shame.

YouTube user mastekz hv uploaded a dashboard-camera video featuring an EMT who is having the best day ever at work while driving an ambulance. He is using a walkie-talkie to chat with a friend, when the paramedic spontaneously busts out his hottest vogue moves — while driving. You should never try this yourself, as the man is seen taking both hands off the steering wheel several times. Although it was nice to see that he saved his most intense moves for when the vehicle is stopped at a traffic light.

Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon flip lips, butcher a Grease classic

Drew Barrymore’s doing the interview rounds for her new film, Blended, co-starring Adam Sandler. When she stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday, she made a confession to pal Jimmy Fallon — she kind of wished that just one time, she could interview herself.

It was the setup for the host’s silly “Lip Flip” game. Courtesy of a cheap camera trick, Fallon’s mouth was placed on Barrymore’s face, and vice-versa. Barrymore impersonated Fallon by talking about his love of everything New York (“Pizza, pizza, pizza, sometimes I just say ‘za”) and otherwise making a bunch of goofy sounds.

As Barrymore, Fallon played up the actress’ free-spirited side, declaring: “You know what I’m really into right now? Licking tree frogs.”

Michael Jackson Hologram to Perform at Billboard Music Awards.

Michael Jackson may not be around to tour in support of his new posthumous album, Xscape, but the annual Billboard Music Awards will still feature a performance from the late King of Pop. A Michael Jackson hologram will take the stage at Sunday night's event.

According to the Los Angeles Times, plans for the awards ceremony include the hologram image of Jackson performing the new Xscape track "Slave to the Rhythm." Sources affiliated with the show said the event will be a "history-making performance" and that the "technology is so spectacular and groundbreaking."

Although the show's producers had tried to keep a lid on their plans, news of the Jackson hologram emerged as the result of a lawsuit filed by two tech companies in an attempt to block the performance. Hologram USA Inc. (which acquired the rights to the patents from Digital Domain, creator of the Tupac Shakur hologram at Coachella 2012) and Musion Das Hologram Ltd. filed the suit on Thursday, claiming that their product was being used without permission by a competitor to create the image of Michael Jackson. The lawsuit was rejected by the judge, who said that there wasn't enough evidence to show that the Billboard Awards' plan would violate patents, nor was there sufficient evidence that their patent had been used to create the hologram.

Xscape, which was released on May 13th, contains eight previously unreleased Michael Jackson songs that have been "contemporized" by producers including Timbaland, Rodney Jenkins and Stargate. Epic Records chairman and CEO L.A. Reid, who executive produced the album, searched through four decades of music in the Jackson estate's vaults to find songs that had Jackson's completed vocals. "Michael left behind some musical performances that we take great pride in presenting through the vision of music producers that he either worked directly with or expressed strong desire to work with," Reid said in a statement regarding the album. "We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world."

Harry Treadaway Talks PENNY DREADFUL

Victor Frankenstein’s Obsession with Life and Death, Having the Same Writer for Every Episode, and More

The new Showtime drama series Penny Dreadful is a frightening saga that completely reinvents literature’s most iconic and terrifying characters.  Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) and Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) recruit the help of Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), as they cross paths with Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney) and other iconic figures, on their quest to uncover what lurks in the darkest corners of Victorian London, in this psychological thriller that weaves together classic horror origin stories.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Harry Treadaway talked about how he came to be a part of this show, what drew him to the project, how much he knew about his character’s journey, having a writer as talented as John Logan write every episode, why this isn’t a rehash of anything, why the tone and approach to the material was so important, Victor Frankenstein’s obsession with life and death, working with such an amazing cast, exploring the light and shadow of the Victorian era, and how exciting it is to explore a character like this, over a longer period of time.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Penny Dreadful airs on Sunday nights on Showtime.

Mark Ruffalo talks The Normal Heart, filming intimate scenes with Matt Bomer, crying on set, etc

It’s hard to believe it has been over a decade since HBO broke new ground with “Angels in America,” a revelatory adaptation of Tony Kushner’s Broadway epic about AIDS. The lavish mini-series, boasting a blue-ribbon cast including Al Pacino and Meryl Streep, won a ton of awards and cemented the cable giant’s rep for daring, if not subversive programming.

And now the Emmy-minded network is at it again, this time reinventing “The Normal Heart,” Larry Kramer’s 1985 semi-autobiographical play that was revived on Broadway in 2011 to thunderous acclaim. While both works focus on the AIDS scourge, wrecked lives, and bureaucratic idiocy, the similarity pretty much ends there.

In contrast to the poetic “gay fantasia” that was “Angels,” Kramer’s screenplay is an unblinking, trenchant blend of heart-stopping historical drama and fierce polemic. Directed by Ryan Murphy, mastermind behind shows like “Glee” and “American Horror Story,” the four-hankie “Normal Heart” is as real and raw as it gets.

Murphy has assembled a cast every bit as fine as “Angels.” It’s led by the exquisite Mark Ruffalo (who also co-produced) as Ned Weeks, the alter ego of firebrand Kramer, the driving force behind creating the Gay Men’s Health Crisis when the mysterious “gay cancer” was all but ignored by homophobic officials.

after these opening B.O. numbers are we really suprised? ‘Godzilla 2′ In Development!!!!

With Godzilla in theaters, Legendary and Warner Bros. have revealed discussions for a sequel. We don’t know what the story will be (Mothra, perhaps?), and there is no confirmation that director Gareth Edwards will return, but given the performance of the first film, there’s reason to guess that the job of directing Godzilla 2 is Edwards’ to refuse. The fact of sequel development hardly comes as a surprise, but this is the first official nod acknowledging that something is in the works.

Deadline reports the basic sequel development. While Thomas Tull of Legendary had previously been unwilling to discuss the notion of a sequel, saying that the company wanted to wait for this first film’s opening to make any plans, clearly there were some notions being thrown around. And with Godzilla taking in $103m internationally this weekend and $93n domestic, Legendary is ready to move forward with a sequel.

Despite the fact that Legendary recently made a new financing and distribution pact with Universal, the Godzilla sequel would be a Warner Bros. proposition.

Beyond that, we don’t know much about a sequel plans. Statements from Edwards suggest that it would share the tone of this first film — so it’s safe to expect that Godzilla 2 won’t be more of an all-out explosion of CG. The restraint Edwards employed in this first film might not be to everyone’s taste, especially on first exposure. But that’s probably what we could expect to see in the second film as well. We’ll see how the film continues to play, and the drop-off numbers for the film’s second weekend could conceivably help sway development efforts in one direction or another.

The Cinderella Teaser Trailer you all have been waiting for!

Walt Disney Studio Ireland has just posted the new teaser trailer for their upcoming Cinderella reboot. Little did we know that this reboot will stray a bit from its origin:

[Click for synopsis of this modern-retelling of Cinderella tale]
The story of "Cinderella" follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home.

But, when Ella's father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her.

And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden).

Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and -- armed with a pumpkin and a few mice -- changes Cinderella's life forever.

EDIT: In case they take the trailer down, I managed to get a screencap of Cinderella's tight ass from the trailer as a memento:

Cameron Diaz Is Dating Benji Madden

 photo 1400361322_cameron-diaz-benji-madden-g_zps2430a75e.jpg

New couple alert! Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are dating, a source reveals to Us Weekly.

"It's very new" and they're "just hanging out," a source tells Us of Diaz, 41, and Madden, 35. The pair have only been seeing each for the past several weeks.

As for how they met? Looks like the Good Charlotte singer has his sister-in-law Nicole Richie to thank! "Nicole thought they'd click," the source adds. (Richie has been married to Benji's brother, Joel Madden, since December 2010. They're parents to daughter Harlow, 6, and son Sparrow, 4.)

Indeed, Diaz and Richie appear to be close friends. Last month, the women were photographed enjoying a hike with each other at Coldwater Canyon Park in L.A. On May 15, they posed together while attending the launch of author Vicky Vlachonis' book, The Body Doesn't Lie.

Madden is the first high-profile relationship Diaz has had since splitting from New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez back in September 2011. Her other exes include Justin Timberlake, and Dallas Buyers Club Oscar winner and 30 Seconds to Mars rocker Jared Leto. (She recently revealed during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live that she's also "been with a lady.") Madden was previously linked to Paris Hilton.

X17 was first to report the relationship news. Reps didn't respond to a request for comment.


Saturday Night Live Spoofs Jay Z and Solange's Elevator Fight, Maya Rudolph Returns to Play Beyoncé


Somehow, we knew this was coming.

During the season finale of Saturday Night Live, hosted by alum Andy Samberg, the show spoofed Jay Z and Solange's now infamous elevator fight, with SNL alum Maya Rudolph returning to reprise her role of Beyoncé in the cold open.

And according to the show, the duo was not fighting at all. Instead, Solange was trying to get a huge spider off of Jay Z instead, proven by Jay and Solange's "exclusive" version of the leaked video, which included audio.

"Oh my god there's a spider on you," Solange said in the clip. "What, get it, you know I hate spiders," Jay said. "It keeps moving," Solange said in between swings. "Kick it," Jay said, as Solange tried to kick him.

Jay Pharoah brought back his spot on impersonation of Hov for the skit, while newcomer Sasheer Zamata played Solange.

Justin Bieber and Jennifer Lawrence Make Friends at the Vanity Fair Armani Cannes Party

With Jennifer Lawrence, Russell Crowe, and Naomi Watts on the guest list, Vanity Fair and Armani’s Cannes Film Festival party, hosted by Graydon Carter and Giorgio Armani at the luxe Hotel du Cap tonight, was bound to be one of the most buzzed-about parties during this party-happy festival. But the surprise arrival of Justin Bieber, clad in his trademark low-slung pants and gleaming white moon shoes, made even the film royalty in attendance star-struck.

Bieber, a last-minute addition brought in by Vanity Fair’s Elizabeth Saltzman and shepherded around the pre-party dinner by none other than IAC chairman Barry Diller, was in high photo-op demand as he navigated the party, posing with Russell Crowe and seemingly exchanging “let’s hang out, bro” phone numbers with Adrian Grenier. But the most excited to meet Bieber was Jennifer Lawrence, who was overheard loudly saying “I want to meet Bieber!!” immediately upon arrival.

Ever interested in fostering interesting friendships, your trusty V.F. staff were able to arrange the historic meeting. Lawrence declined a photograph, saying she wanted Justin and herself to meet as real people. But we can confirm that they did indeed exchange pleasantries, and that the party was made all the better for it.


Missing Malaysian Jet Movie 'The Vanishing Act' Promoted at Cannes

It's not a Hollywood production, but a movie about the Malaysian plane tragedy is in the works and should be in theaters by fall.

Rupesh Paul Productions is promoting "The Vanishing Act" among buyers at the Cannes Film Festival. A poster for it promises to tell "the untold story" of the missing plane, but in an interview Friday, the associate director of the movie, Sritama Dutta, said the only similarities between the thriller and the real-life disaster is that a plane is missing.

"It has got no similarities," said Dutta, adding there have been so many developments with the actual case that it wouldn't be practical to try to mirror it. "We cannot keep up with the true facts, it's changing every day."

Dutta said Indian director Rupesh Paul will film the movie and a multiethnic cast for it could be revealed before Cannes ends May 25. Paul hopes to shoot the film in India and the United States and plans a worldwide release in September.

Authorities still have not been able to locate Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which was carrying 239 people from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 when it went missing. The search for the plane has made headlines worldwide.

Brad Pitt and Matthew McConaughey Can't Contain Their Neighborly Love

What happens when Brad Pitt and Matthew McConaughey are neighbors in New Orleans? Brad tosses a can to his buddy, while Matthew plays with a football, of course. The cute interactions ensued on Saturday after the A-list guys spotted each other outside the places they're staying while in Louisiana for charity events. Brad and Matthew couldn't help but laugh about the coincidence and flash their handsome grins.

It all went down mere hours before Brad's Make It Right gala, where the actor will celebrate his foundation's efforts to rebuild the city's Ninth Ward after the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Meanwhile, Matthew's in town with his family to support The Brees Dream Foundation, which has teamed up with the Oscar winner's Just Keep Livin Foundation to provide after-school fitness programs to local kids.

Brad's visit in Louisiana comes after his and Angelina Jolie's sweet stop at the star-studded premiere of HBO's The Normal Heart in NYC on Monday.

CRIMSON PEAK 71st and last day of filming

CRIMSON PEAK, Friday, May 16, Day 22: Today is the 71st day of overall filming, and it is the last. Everyone is ready for it to be over and no one quite wants it to be, I think. I've been in around 40 feature films and yet this is, I believe, the first time I've worked on the last day. I love working and I love not working. I have a good time either way. But coming to the end of a project is very different from having a few days off. A film or television company is often a very close-knit group. One establishes friendships and acquaintanceships that not only make the days pass enjoyably but also feed one in one's work. Knowing that a person I like and respect is going to make sure I look my best, is going to make certain I am heard, is going to sew back on the button that fell off in the last take, frees me to give my eased concentration to the text and to the myriad technical matters such as posture, balance, timing, and the manipulation of props without having to be concerned with those other tasks. Acting for the camera is such a technical thing, one wants to have trusted associates removing the detritus from one's thoughts. A sudden worry in the midst of a take about whether my vest is buttoned up correctly can take away from my more important task of saying a word in the next line at precisely the moment I step into the key light. Knowing your back is protected by experts whom you like and trust is invaluable. That more often than not they are wonderful, good-spirited people makes the end of a shoot a melancholy thing. We started filming around the first week of February, and now it's mid-May, nearly 3 1/2 months of living and working in close connection for more hours per day than most people in our culture work. One gets close with a good many of one's colleagues, and when a film is over, there's the very real possibility that you many never see any of them again. Oh, the film industry isn't that large, and there's almost as good a chance you'll work together again, maybe many times. But the fact that it's anyone's guess as to whether you'll ever reencounter one another makes wrapping a picture hard, no matter how exhausting the job has been. The hours are such that almost everyone is happy to have a break. But when a picture ends, relief is tempered mightily by a bit of sorrow.

Box Office: ‘Godzilla’ Stomps Into Theaters With Record Estimated $93 Mil

Leaving a giant-sized footprint at the global box office this weekend, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ “Godzillaestimated $93.2 million domestically through Sunday, marking the largest-ever May opening for Warner.

The Warner-Legendary Japanese remake also scored a whopping estimated $103 million from 64 international territories. The U.K. led the charge with $10.4 million, followed by Russia ($9.1 million) and Mexico ($8.9 million).

Historically, the run-up to Memorial Day weekend has been more modest given that it falls between the first weekend in May — a huge moviegoing frame — and the long holiday fray, during which a good number of schools have just commenced for the summer break.

“Anytime I beat tracking by $20 million, I’m happy,” said Warner domestic distribution prexy Dan Fellman. “That’s like a whole other movie.”

“Godzilla” benefited from massive fanboy support in the Imax and premium large-formats. The former company alone contributed 15% of the gross at $14.1 million from just 352 screens, averaging $40,057 per-screen and marking the exhib’s largest Stateside opening this year.

First look at Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser in "Guardians of the Galaxy"


Marvel is ramping up their promotion for Guardians of the Galaxy (first clip here, first trailer here), and we’ll have plenty more about it this week. In the meantime, the first picture of Lee Pace as Ronan The Accuser — along with his Universal Weapon — has dropped via Twitter.


CBM describes the character:

As the primary villain of the Marvel space epic film, Ronan has been described as “twisted, religious bent” psychopath who works for the “Machiavellian” Thanos. Apparently, the blue-skinned Kree leader lives by the belief that “strength is virtue and weakness is sin,” according to director/writer James Gunn.


Robert Pattinson’s Kinky Cannes Turn in "Maps to the Stars"

Like 2012’s Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars is another Cannes competition entry by the veteran Canadian director that features Robert Pattinson having sex in a limousine. While that may seem like an unforgivably glib entry point for introducing Cronenberg’s scabrous evisceration of Hollywood mores, it’s nevertheless appropriate to cut to the salacious chase, especially since novelist Bruce Wagner’s script is anything but dainty. A satirical assault on Hollywood’s infatuation with success, youth, and New Age buncombe, Maps tackles sexual abuse, teenage drug addiction, show business backbiting, and incestuous longings with a scattershot sardonicism that prevents superficially pulpy material from degenerating into cartoonish melodrama.

Maps to the Stars’ pungent dialogue and lack of sentimental posturing makes it intermittently entertaining, even though the insiderish swipes at Hollywood (everyone from Garry Marshall and Anne Hathaway to Chuck Lorre and Bernardo Bertolucci are disdainfully name checked) lack the combination of pathos and invective achieved in Billy Wilder’s Sunset Boulevard (1950), still the most moving, as well as the funniest poison pen letter to Hollywood’s culture of narcissism.


Rob's role is small so not sure why he's the focus here. However, even though it's early, Julianne and Mia are slaying the critics so far.

Childhood hobby:
“I studied ballet when I was growing up. It has helped a lot with modeling because I think about all parts of my body, from my fingers to my toes.”

If she weren’t a model:
“I think I would have continued with ballet, or maybe I would have become a veterinarian.”

On being a Victoria’s Secret Angel:
“It comes with a different kind of responsibility. It’s not just about posing for shoots. People know your name and your personality.”

Hidden talent:
“I am very good at pretending that I am not nervous!”

On the Verge: 'Stars are aligning' for Iggy Azalea

Come out swinging: Square off, song-of-summer hopefuls: Hip-hop siren Iggy Azalea has entered the ring with two heavyweight contenders. The Australian rapper delivered a one-two punch with Fancy (with Charli XCX) and Ariana Grande's Problem (she's featured), which are reigning at Nos. 3 and 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively. She's the third woman in Billboard history to have her first Hot 100 hits go to the top five at the same time (joining Ashanti and Dee Dee Sharp). With her album, The New Classic, she scored the best-selling debut by a female rapper since Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday.

No 'voice of an angel': Born Amethyst Amelia Kelly, Azalea hails from small-town Mullumbimby, Australia, where she grew up with musical aspirations and a love for Tupac Shakur and Missy Elliott. "I knew I didn't have the voice of an angel, so I thought, 'Well, maybe I can be a rapper, and it doesn't matter what my voice sounds like,' " says Azalea, 23. "As long as I could write a good song and be creative, I didn't have to have a voice like Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston." At 16, she dropped out of high school and moved to Miami to pursue her hip-hop dreams, later relocating to Atlanta and Los Angeles and becoming a protégé of rapper T.I.
