The Avengers Sink Battleship In The U.S.
The Avengers sunk Rihanna's Battleship at the U.S. box office at the weekend with another blockbuster three-day take.

Battleship, starring Rihanna, Liam Neeson and Taylor Kitsch, opened with a disappointing $25.3 million (£15.8 million) to finish a distant second, according to Sunday estimates. »
Sacha Baron Cohen Is An Embarrassment At Parties
Sacha Baron Cohen prefers to turn up to celebrity events as one of his many comic characters - because he's an embarrassment when he arrives as himself.
The funnyman admits he's hopeless at parties and premieres when he doesn't have a beard or a moustache to hide behind - because he doesn't recognise his Hollywood peers.
He explains, "I don't really watch a lot of television or film, so I don't really recognise some of the faces.
"I went to one dinner recently with Warren Beatty and Annette Bening and a few other people around quite a small dinner table and... I turned to Annette Bening and said, 'You should have won an Oscar for The Kids Are All Right...' and she stared at me and she said, 'You don't know who I am, do you?' It was Diane Keaton.
"I was embarrassed. I didn't know what to say... so I just asked... 'What was it like to make love to Woody Allen?' She did get up and leave."
And Cohen dropped another clanger at a film premiere pal Jack Black invited him to.
He recalls, "He (Black) got up and spoke... and then this woman got up and spoke for a long time and I went (up) to him afterwards and he said, 'What did you think?' and I said, 'It was fine although some people were speaking for a long time, like the fat woman... with the huge breasts,' and he said, 'That's my mother!'"
His actress wife Isla Fisher is so tired of his slip-ups at social functions, she'd prefer he stays home: "She now tries to avoid going out of the house with me." »
Transgender Woman Loses Out On Miss Canada Crown
The first-ever transgender contestant to compete in Canada's Miss Universe contest has failed to be crowned queen.
Jenna Talackova was among the final 12 contestants at the pageant on Saturday, but the Vancouver native lost out to Sahar Biniaz, 26, who will represent Canada at the international Miss Universe competition in December.

Miley Cyrus At Ease For First Sex Scene
Miley Cyrus found herself at ease when she shot her first awkward sex scene for new movie Lol - co-star Douglas Booth's good looks distracted her.
Former clean-cut Disney star Cyrus, 19, filmed the bedroom scene with British actor Booth, admitting kissing him "could be worse".
On her co-star's looks, Cyrus tells Britain's The Sun, "He's gorgeous. He's like one of the coolest dudes ever. He's really funny. We called him 'Princess' because he has a very posh English accent. It seems like old Shakespeare or something."
However, the star struggled to prepare herself ahead of filming, admitting it was a unique experience.
She says: "It was the first scene we shot together. First day, and it was the sex scene. I forgot to shave my legs. I was in the trailer and I was like, 'Give me a razor, quick'. It was really funny having someone lie with the camera and saying, 'Ok, put your leg in your hand. Can we see movement?'." »
Nick Stahl's Wife Confirms Actor Is In Rehab
Troubled Terminator 3: Rise Of The MacHines star Nick Stahl has checked into rehab, according to his concerned wife.
The missing actor reportedly reached out to friends via email to assure them he is safe after Los Angeles police had begun a search for the fallen star.

Brooklyn Decker Shocked By 50 Shades Of Grey
Model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker was asked for identification when she attempted to buy E.L. James' racy novel 50 Shades Of Grey at an airport bookshop - and now she can understand why store owners are keen to keep under-18s away from the scandalous sex tome.
The Battleship star wanted to know why all her friends were talking about the bestseller and picked up the book to read on a flight to South Korea - but she was carded at the check-out.
She explains, "I was like, 'Is there something wrong?' and she (check-out girl) said, 'No, it's for this book'.
"I was like, 'What am I getting myself into...?' You have to be 18 - and you should be 18 because I open it up on the plane and there is no way I would have my 18-year-old child reading this book. It is crazy, wild.
"It's really inappropriate... She (James) talks about butt clamps... I haven't finished it yet. I can't continue." »
