Mark WahlbergWahlberg Chooses Nudity Over Love Scene To Keep Wife Happy

Mark Wahlberg opted to go "butt naked" in his upcoming film Broken City in exchange for director Allen Hughes cutting out a "graphic" love scene involving his character - because he feared it would upset his wife.

The Departed star wed model Rhea Durham in 2009 after eight years together and Wahlberg admits he goes to great lengths to ensure his film roles are romance-free.

He tells WENN, "If it has anything to do with me kissing somebody my wife's not gonna like it so I'll fight to get it cut out. Those are the more important issues. I usually try to choose my battles wisely."

But the Oscar-nominated actor admits convincing Hughes to drop a big sex scene in the new crime thriller cost him his dignity for another shot.

Wahlberg says, "There's a love scene in the movie that I'm shooting now (Broken City) that is very graphic and I'm like, 'I really don't want to do that. I don't think it's necessary, we've been together now seven years and the magic is probably gone in the relationship anyway!'

"She (his onscreen love interest) plays an actress and she's having this really hardcore sex scene that she shoots in the movie and doesn't tell me about it, and then I see it in the theatre and I have a big problem with that because I play an ex-cop who's a private investigator investigating the mayor of New York City. And so obviously I lose that scene but then my compromise was to be nude in the scene by myself after she's gone. I still had to be butt naked for six hours but it wasn't with somebody else!"

Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones also star in Broken City, which is due for release in 2013. »



Lindsay LohanMichael Lohan Brands Lindsay's Playboy Shoot A 'Good Move'

Lindsay Lohan's estranged father has given his daughter the thumbs up for posing nude for Playboy magazine, insisting the decision to bare all was a "good move".

The Mean Girls star recently stripped off for the $1 million (£625,000) photoshoot and the January/February edition of the magazine has proved to be a big hit with fans, with many retailers having to order additional stock to meet demands.

And Michael Lohan is convinced the actress, who wears nothing but high heels for the images, is finally making the right decisions to get her career back on track.

In a taping of U.S. TV show Lifechangers, he tells celebrity counsellor Dr. Drew Pinsky, "It's a move in a direction where she's working. If she's happy with it, I'm happy with it."

But Michael admits he's yet to see just how raunchy the photos are - and he is unlikely to ever lay eyes on them.

When Dr. Drew pulls up the magazine cover photo, which features a platinum blonde Lindsay straddling a red plastic Playboy bunny-shaped chair, strategically protecting her modesty, Michael says, "I haven't seen it and I never look at it, any of it. There she is. Do I have to close my eyes?"

The episode is due to air in America on Wednesday. »



Segel's Twitter Hacked

Comedian Jason Segel has fallen victim to internet pranksters after his blog was hacked on Friday.

The Muppets star was shocked to find a number of pitiful posts on his page after arriving in Los Angeles following a flight from Australia, and he immediately set about changing his password to prevent further unauthorised messages.

In a series of tweets on Friday morning, he writes, "Just landed back in La. Sadly account hacked while flying. All they did was change my pic a bunch and a tweet about 'not being mean to me'

"As I'm finding out now, (there are) a few more tweets. Anything from the past 14 hrs (hours) I've been on a plane from Sydney..." »



Wahlberg Building Studio For Youths In Boston

Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg is opening his second film and recording studio for youths in his native Boston, Massachusetts.

The Fighter star, who endured a tough childhood before finding fame in 1990s rap group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, has been working on giving inner city kids a creative place to escape to and he reveals construction recently began at a youth club in Boston.

He tells WENN, "As far as my past, there's nothing that I can do to change that. I've been fortunate enough that I can apply a lot of those real life experiences to what I'm doing now, into my work both in front of the camera and with kids that are growing up in similar situations.

"We do a lot of inner city stuff working with at risk youth and inner city kids. The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation just partnered up for the second year with the Taco Bell Foundation and Graduate To Go Studios. We had this idea to build a recording studio, a film, television and animation studio in every boys club across the country. We've already opened one in California and just did the groundbreaking in Boston in my home club.

"It's not only giving kids a place to go and learn about making film and television and music but there's also mentors there that are getting involved in every other aspect of their life and they're learning stuff that can give them a real career in this business, because there's not a lot of opportunity there for them."

Wahlberg admits he has a lot to be thankful for after turning his life around following a string of arrests and drug problems in his youth and the star, who is now a married father of four, is determined not to mess up his "second chance".

He says, "I'm so appreciative of all the things that I've been able to do and the things that I've been able to overcome. Given a second chance in this life is not something that comes easy so I don't want to do anything to mess it up. People are like, 'Just go out for one night.' For what? I got everything I want and I'm so blessed and so fortunate and start every morning on my knees for being grateful and working to do the right thing.

"If all went away today I'd be happy for the things that I was able to experience and the things that I learned along the way." »



Gibson's Divorce Finalised

Mel Gibson is officially single - a judge signed off on his divorce from estranged wife Robyn on Friday.

The Braveheart star split from his spouse in 2006, shortly after his infamous arrest for driving under the influence, and Robyn filed for legal separation in April, 2009, citing "irreconcilable differences" for ending their 28-year marriage.

They reached a financial settlement in June and a Los Angeles judge granted the former couple a divorce decree just in time for Christmas, reports

Gibson shares seven children with Robyn. He also has a baby daughter with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. »



Breakfast At Tiffany's House Up For Sale

Fans of Audrey Hepburn's classic movie Breakfast At Tiffany's will have the chance to live in the style of Holly Golightly as the townhouse featured in the film has gone up for sale.

The New York brownstone building, which served as home to Hepburn's character in the popular 1961 movie, has gone on the market for almost $6 million (£3.8 million).

Hepburn starred as young New York socialite Golightly who becomes fascinated by a new man in her apartment building, and although the interior scenes in the movie were shot on a soundstage in California, all the exteriors were filmed at the Manhattan house.

The property is currently split into a pair of two-bedroom apartments. »



O'Brien Gives Hamm To Co-worker

Conan O'Brien thrilled a worker on his late night U.S. talk show on Thursday by presenting her with actor Jon Hamm as a Secret Santa gift.

The TV host joined in the present-giving and drew the name of talent co-ordinator Ashley Olivia as the recipient of his gift. He subsequently discovered her to be a fan of Mad Men star Hamm and presented her with a picture of the actor during his show.

O'Brien then stunned his employee by declaring, "It's too bad I didn't get it signed... let's take care of that right now... Jon!" before calling the actor onto the stage.

The shocked staff worker screamed with delight as Hamm walked out, gave her a hug and signed the picture for her, announcing, "Happy Christmas!" »



Jolie Working On Film About Afghanistan

Angelina Jolie has been working on a script for a movie about Afghanistan but she doesn't yet have the "confidence" to put it into production.

The actress has stepped behind the camera to make her directorial debut with In The Land Of Blood And Honey, a film she wrote herself about a romance between a Serbian soldier and a Bosnian woman.

The movie has already been nominated for a Golden Globe and won a Producer's Guild award, but despite the film's success, Jolie is reluctant to start work on her next behind-the-scenes project.

She reveals she "half-wrote" a script about Afghanistan, but has yet to show it to anyone.

The actress tells the Los Angeles Times, "I don't even think it's good. Maybe I'll dig it out, but I don't have the confidence yet to start even thinking in that way." »



Swank Throws Hillbilly Holiday Party

Hilary Swank bucked tradition at her recent Christmas bash by throwing a hillbilly-themed holiday party for her friends and colleagues.

The Oscar-winning actress hosted the bash at the Piano Bar in Los Angeles last weekend (17-18Dec11) and the invitation told guests to expect "A Redneck Christmas, Y'all..." with "beers and boot scootin' fun".

Swank co-hosted the party with publicist Stephanie Shaw, who tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "We wanted it to be the opposite of the Hollywood formal holiday party. We had Rice Krispies (Treats), Natty Lights (Natural Light Beer) and redneck punch.

"We had tons of beer in buckets on the tables and hot dogs... Hilary got into the spirit of it, she had so much fun. We were all going to wear tanks that said 'Ho ho ho' - but they didn't arrive in time, so Hilary was in a cute cowgirl outfit." »



Jackson Offering Hobbit Visit For Charity

The Hobbit director Peter Jackson is offering a fan the chance to visit the set of the movie in New Zealand to raise money for charity.

The filmmaker is currently shooting the Lord of the Rings prequel, based on J.R.R. Tolkien's classic novel, with stars including Martin Freeman, Hugo Weaving, Sir Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood and Orlando Bloom.

Now Jackson is offering up the chance to visit the set of the film as part of the Stars Come Out Auction, which launched on this week (beg19Dec11) to raise funds for scientist Sir Ray Avery's charity Medicine Mondiale.

Other offers up for auction include a chance to record songs with Crowded House's Neil Finn.

The musician says, "Ray continues his brilliant work to create innovative and low cost solutions to health problems in the developing world which attracts and intrigues me.

"He has recently developed a genius new product for infant nutrition called proteinforte and is raising money to build a factory in Nepal to produce it."

The auction will run until 9 January. »



Wood Worried About Decline Of Successful Blockbusters

Actor Elijah Wood is baffled by the increase in big money blockbusters, insisting they're failing to attract audiences.

The Lord of the Rings star has been watching box office trends, and he's worried by the lack of cinemagoers turning out to see high-profile releases.

He tells Britain's Guardian newspaper, "It's like there's no middle class of movies any more. It's either minuscule budgets or it's f**king $200 million. You don't need to spend that much money!

"And it's sort of failing. A lot of films have come out this year that were supposed to be huge and haven't been. That's a bad trend. I'm biased, but the thing that separates Rings from that crop is that it felt like the world's biggest independent film.

"It was new territory for everyone, so we were figuring s**t out as we went along. (Director) Peter (Jackson) was knocking on people's doors asking if we could use their land to pick up some shots. The scale was massive, of course, but it never felt like a blockbuster; it felt intimate and small. Hollywood doesn't always include that spirit." »



Director Bird Snubbed 3D For New Mission: Impossible

Director Brad Bird snubbed the chance to film the new Mission: Impossible movie in 3D because he is "not exactly convinced" by the new technology.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol features the franchise's lead Tom Cruise in his most daring stunts yet, including scaling the world's tallest building in Dubai.

But rather than showcase the impressive action shots in 3D, Bird kept his filming to more traditional methods.

He tells BBC's Newsbeat, "I think that any time you have a new toy, people feel excited about it and then they overuse it. I remain interested in 3D but I'm not exactly convinced yet. What I'm more interested in is really high resolution, and really big screens.

"For me I don't like the glasses so much, and it's a little dark. I think people are forgetting about the power of a really sharp bright image on a really big screen." »



Ames Racks Up Huge Bar Bill For Fans

Bored To Death creator Jonathan Ames racked up a $1,600 (£1,000) bar tab after offering to buy fans of the axed show a drink at a party in New York on Wednesday.

The writer hosted a bash in Brooklyn, declaring the event to be Bored To Death's "funeral", and invited devotees to join him to mourn the loss of the series, which was recently cancelled.

The bar was swamped with fans and Ames spent a small fortune buying them all booze.

Speaking at the party, he told the New York Post's Page Six column, "I was not expecting this. I'm gonna lose a lot of money. Everyone gets one drink. Don't abuse the privilege."

After the event, Ames thanked fans for coming in a post on his page, writing, "Last night's funeral for Bored To Death was our greatest premiere ever! Thank you to all the fans... who came out!!!" »



Fashion House Sues Over Hangover Sequel

Movie bosses behind The Hangover sequel are facing legal action from the Louis Vuitton fashion house over a purse carried by Zach Galifianakis' character in the hit comedy.

Executives of the French brand have filed a lawsuit against the makers of The Hangover Part II alleging a handbag seen onscreen in the hands of Galifianakis is a Louis Vuitton fake.

The legal papers, filed at a federal court in New York on Thursday, state fashion bosses are unhappy with a scene in which the actor carries a bag with a Lvm logo and says, "Careful, that is a Louis Vuitton".

They claim the bag is not a real Louis Vuitton and could cause confusion among consumers, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Louis Vuitton bosses want the scene to be cut from the film, while they are also demanding a share of the movie's profits. »



Carrey Steps Out Holding Hands With New Mystery Woman

Actor Jim Carrey has finally moved on from longterm love Jenny McCarthy - he was spotted holding hands with a new mystery woman in Los Angeles this week (beg19Dec11).

The Mask star split from McCarthy in April last year after five years of dating and has largely been single since the break-up.

Now it appears Carrey has found love again after he was pictured with a blonde woman at the Guns N' Roses reunion concert at The Forum on Thursday night.

The pair walked along holding hands as Carrey sported a huge grin. »



DeVito Lands West End Role

Actor Danny DeVito is set to make his West End debut next year after landing a new theatre role.

The Twins star will appear alongside Richard Griffiths in Neil Simon's comedy The Sunshine Boys, about a retired vaudeville double act.

Producer Sonia Friedman tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I think these two - Richard and Danny - and the play will be just what we need to give us all a lift."

The production will debut at an as-yet-undisclosed London theatre in April. »



Aniston And Theroux Donate To Children's Hospital For Christmas

Hollywood couple Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have shown off their caring sides this Christmas by donating money to a children's hospital in lieu of sending gifts to their friends.

The Friends star went public with her new boyfriend earlier this year and they have sent out a joint card to their loved ones this festive season.

The couple has also handed over an undisclosed sum to America's St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and an animal organisation to mark the holiday.

According to, the greeting reads, "We wish you and your family a holiday season full of happiness and joy. A donation has been made in your name to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Best Friends Animal Society. With warmth and love, Jen and Justin." »



Trump Facing Legal Action From Designer Lam

Socialite-turned-designer Ivanka Trump is facing legal action from fashion mogul Derek Lam over allegations she copied one of his creations.

Donald Trump's daughter received a cease-and-desist letter from Lam demanding she withdraw her $150 (£93.75) Cadie wedge shoe from the Ivanka Trump Footwear Collection.

The document suggests the shoe is a copy of Lam's $780 (£487.50) Ayami design, and Jan-Hendrik Schlottmann, chief executive officer of Derek Lam, tells Women's Wear Daily, "We have seen very similar copies before but we have never seen a shoe that perfectly copied."

However, officials at the distribution company behind Trump's collection, Marc Fisher Footwear, have refuted the claims.

A statement from the firm reads, "The Lam wedge sandals are of a popular design type that has been used by numerous manufacturers for many decades. There is nothing iconic about the appearance of the Lam sandal. The Ivanka Trump sandals prominently display the Ivanka Trump name, and there can be no confusion as to the source of the Ivanka Trump sandals." »



Lohan Fronts Jeans Campaign

Lindsay Lohan has landed a new modelling gig following her risque Playboy shoot as the new face of a top denim line.

The Mean Girls star's spread for Hugh Hefner's magazine was leaked online earlier this month, and the images proved so popular the January/February edition was rush-released.

Now fans of Lohan can see the actress in another saucy shoot - she has posed for a series of provocative campaign pictures for Jag Jeans.

A statement from the company reads, "As Jag Jeans' newest endorser, Lindsay embodies the strength and fearlessness of the woman of today. She is unafraid to be who she is. She is fierce yet exudes feminine grace.

"Lindsay was so involved with the shoot that she would go as far as adjusting items on the set. She even requested scissors so she could personally fray the edges of her black crepe blouse because she believed it would look better that way." »



America's The X Factor Finale Marred By Backstage Accident

The finale of America's The X Factor on Thursday was marred by backstage drama after three crew workers were injured in a freak accident.

The Simon Cowell reality TV show wrapped up its first U.S. series with a live final featuring performances from star names including 50 Cent, Justin Bieber and Leona Lewis.

However, just before the In Da Club hitmaker took to the stage, a stair riser came unhinged and two workers were hit in the head, with a third taking a knock to the elbow, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Paramedics were called to the Los Angeles studio and the three stagehands were treated for their injuries backstage, while 50 Cent was performing. They were later taken to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for further assessment.

However, the medical drama did not stop the live show - Melanie Amaro, who was mentored by Cowell, fought off competition from Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene to be crowned the winner of the series. »

Top Hollywood Dialect Coach Easton Dies

The renowned Hollywood dialect coach who helped Forest Whitaker hone his accent as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in The Last King Of Scotland has died.

Character actor and language expert Robert Easton passed away from natural causes at his home in Toluca Lake, Los Angeles last Friday at the age of 81.

Easton began his career as an actor and landed roles on TV shows such as The Munsters, Get Smart and The Adventures of Superman and in films like 1961's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country in 1991.

But he became famed for his skills as a phoneticist and was regularly referred to as the Henry Higgins of Hollywood, in reference to the strict speech tutor in My Fair Lady.

As a dialect coach, Easton taught actors including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Liam Neeson, Sir Ben Kingsley and Anne Hathaway, while his work on 2006's The Last King of Scotland landed Whitaker the Oscar for Best Actor.

Easton continued to work right up until his death, even recording a speech tape for John Travolta to use for an upcoming project.

His daughter Heather Woodruff Perry tells the Los Angeles Times, "A month ago, he did an entire script on tape for John Travolta."

Paying tribute to the veteran, Robert Duvall, who worked with Easton on Gods and Generals in 2003, says, "They (film producers) said, 'We want Virginia accents'. Bob said, 'Which one? There are 12 distinct accents, from the Piedmont to the ocean.' He knew them all.

"He was a wonderful man, a very unique personality, and a master at his craft." »



Freeman And Baldwin Offer Up Dinner Dates For Charity Auction

Actors Morgan Freeman and Billy Baldwin are offering fans the chance to share a meal with them as part of a charity auction.

Oscar winner Freeman will treat one winning bidder and a friend to lunch, while Baldwin will break bread with his auction winner and a guest at top New York Italian restaurant Rao's.

Starting bids for both lots are $5,000 (£3,125) and the proceeds of the sale will benefit the actors' own charitable organisations.

Playboy publishing mogul Hugh Hefner has also donated a set of autographed pyjamas to benefit Lenny's House, an organisation which helps women with addictions.

Bids for that lot begin at $1,500 (£937.50). »



Hill Lived Rent-free In Pitt's New Orleans Home

Jonah Hill lived rent-free while shooting the big screen adaptation of 21 Jump Street in New Orleans, Louisiana - Brad Pitt offered up his home to the funnyman after starring together in Moneyball.

Hill began filming the upcoming movie adaptation of the hit 1980s TV show shortly after completing baseball film Moneyball with Pitt, and the Hollywood superstar didn't hesitate to hand over the keys to his empty New Orleans pad to his new pal.

The Superbad actor tells U.S. comedian Jon Stewart, "Brad is the coolest guy. It sucks because he's so handsome... You don't wanna like him so much!

"I was shooting (21 Jump Street) in New Orleans, and he let me live in his house. He said, 'Go live there!' I said, 'I'm there for three-and-a-half, four months', and he said, 'That's cool. Live at my house.' Like, he's the nicest guy."

But Hill admits he felt bad for tourists visiting New Orleans as they would get excited to catch a glimpse of Pitt every time his car pulled up to the property.

He says, "Every day I'd get picked up in a black SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) and dropped off. But people in New Orleans know it's Brad Pitt's house. It's literally on the (bus) tour.

"So, I would go home every day from work and there'd be a tour outside and they'd be freaking out, and then I'd get out of the car, and you could hear a collective audible sigh of annoyance when it wasn't Brad Pitt!"

Hill stars alongside Channing Tatum in the movie version of 21 Jump Street, the show which kick-started Johnny Depp's career. It is due for release in 2012. »
