Twilight Lands 12 Teen Choice Nominations
15 June 2009 12:15 PM, PDT

Vampire love story Twilight is leading the charge for the 2009 Teen Choice Awards' nominations with an impressive 12 nods.

The blood-sucking film has been named in the Choice Movie: Romance and Choice Movie: Drama categories, where it will face stiff competition from Tom Hanks' Angels & Demons, Brad Pitt's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Beyonce Knowles' Obsessed and Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire.

And its stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart - who are at work on the franchise's second installment New Moon - have earned recognition for their own efforts, in categories for Choice Movie Actor and Actress in a Drama.

High School Musical 3: Senior Year is in close competition with 10 nods in categories including Choice Movie: Music/Dance, while its stars Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are up for Choice Movie Actor and Actress in a Music/Dance film.

The teen musical ties with singer/actress Miley Cyrus and hit teen TV drama Gossip Girl, whose star Blake Lively will face off against Cyrus in the Choice Female Hottie category, battling it out with Megan Fox, Beyonce Knowles and Vanessa Hudgens for the title. Teen fans will have a bevy of Hollywood hunks to choose from in the male category, including Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford, Zac Efron, Taylor Kitsch, Robert Pattinson and The Jonas Brothers.

The musical trio has landed nine nominees, including Choice Movie: Music/Dance, Choice TV Actor: Comedy, Choice TV: Breakout Show and Choice Music: Love Song, among others.

The Jonas Brothers will host the ceremony, which will air live on U.S. TV on 10 August. Teenage fans have been asked to vote for their favourites online.


Jolie Films Video For Refugees
15 June 2009 3:00 PM, PDT

Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is continuing her fight work as a United Nations (Un) ambassador by filming a video urging the world to recognise the plight of refugees.

The actress, who serves as a Refugees Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commission, has long battled to help millions of people who have been forced to flee their homes because of war or persecution.

Jolie visited a refugee centre in Northern Thailand in February and her experiences led her to make an emotive appeal urging Thai officials to free thousands of displaced Burmese citizens, who have been held in camps for up to 20 years.

Her comments drew the wrath of the Thai government who chastised Un bosses for allowing the star to visit the camps.

But Jolie has refused to slow her campaign and she has now appeared in a video to promote World Refugee Day, on 20 June.

The Tomb Raider star addresses the camera in the short film, urging people across the world to pay more attention to the problems of others.

Jolie begins by telling viewers not to look away as harrowing video footage of the desperate displaced flashes onto the screen.

She says, "Refugees are the most vulnerable people on earth. Every day they are fighting to survive. They deserve our respect, please do not forget them. Remember them on this day, World Refugee Day."


Moore Pokes Fun At U.S. Fat Cat Bosses In New Film Trailer
15 June 2009 3:00 PM, PDT

Bowling For Columbine documentary maker Michael Moore poked fun at America's economic crisis at the weekend (13-14Jun09) by asking moviegoers to give generously to struggling big businessmen as part of a cinema collection skit.

Moore appeared onscreen in theatres in New York, Washington, D.C, Chicago and Los Angeles in a trailer for his upcoming social satire movie, which will take a look at the U.S. economy, and teamed up with cinema staff to kick off a fundraiser.

Ushers wearing T-shirts with the slogan 'Save Our CEO's' passed around a tin can while the onscreen Moore said, "Instead of using this time to tell you about my new movie, I'd like to take a moment and ask you to join me in helping our fellow Americans."

He added, "The downturn in the economy has hurt many people. People who have had no choice but to go on government assistance, yet our welfare agencies can only do so much. That's why I'm asking you to reach into your pockets right now and lend a hand.

"Ushers will be coming down the aisles to collect your donations for Citibank, Bank of America, Aig, Goldman Sachs, Jp Morgan and a host of other needy banks and corporations. Won't you please give generously?"

After Moore's speech, a message flashed across the screen, which read, 'Michael Moore, the new movie coming soon. This Time It's Personal.'


Megan Fox Is Hoping For Rain
15 June 2009 3:00 PM, PDT

Sexy Megan Fox has her sights set on Korean pop superstar Rain after confirming she's no longer dating actor Brian Austin Green.

The Transformers star ended her engagement to Green earlier this year, but maintained the couple was still trying to work out its relationship in a recent magazine interview.

Now, however, it appears Fox is on the prowl - and she's looking to the East for her new man.

She says, "There is this Korean Justin Timberlake, named Rain, and I'm really on his situation now. I'm trying to fix this up."

Rain hit the headlines in March when he was ordered to pay a Hawaiian concert promoter $8 million (GBP5.3million) in damages for cancelling a concert in 2007.

Rain is also facing a suit from promoters in Los Angeles after cancelling a string of gigs on his 2007 U.S. tour.


Greene And Reed Quitting Smoking
15 June 2009 3:00 PM, PDT

Twilight actresses Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed are desperately trying to kick their nicotine habit with the help of fake cigarettes.

The two stars are conscious of their status as role models for their young fans and want to set an example by quitting smoking. And they've turned to imitation cigarettes SmokeStiks to aid them in their challenge.

A source tells, "Everyone on the cast (of Twilight and sequel New Moon) smokes, and they are all trying to quit because they are on Twilight and know they are in the public eye.

"(Greene and Reed) know they are role models for little kids. If there are a ton of paparazzi photos of them smoking, that's not a positive image.

"SmokeStiks look like those fake cigarettes actors use in plays. There's no smoke; it just lights up when you puff."


Wood's Confrontation With Foster Over Flora Plum Role
15 June 2009 3:00 PM, PDT

Evan Rachel Wood didn't know whether to "kiss or punch" Jodie Foster when they met to discuss her role in forthcoming film Flora Plum - because she blames the Oscar winner for a childhood trauma.

As a child Wood was pushed to emulate the actress' career, by her mother, who was obsessed with the Oscar winner.

The 21 year old even attended the same schools and learned to speak French - like her mum's idol.

So Wood found meeting Foster in person an odd experience.

She tells the New York Daily News, "I had to sit my mum down one day and look at her and say, 'I'm not Jodie Foster. I'm me, and that's who I'm going to be. Okay?'

"I actually got to sit down with Jodie and I thought, 'Not that this is a bad thing, but you've haunted me my entire life. I don't know whether to kiss you or punch you.' But she was amazing.

"If I could pick anyone to have a conversation with or ask advice from, it would be her. I wept going to sleep the night before, and I wept waiting for her at the restaurant. It was a big deal for me."


Simpson Suit To Stay In Storage
15 June 2009 3:00 PM, PDT

A judge has ruled the suit worn by O.J. Simpson at the end of his 1995 murder trial will stay in storage - until the battle over who owns the clothing is resolved.

Simpson was cleared of homicide charges in relation to the death of his ex-wife, Nicole Simpson Brown, and her friend Ron Goldman, after a highly-publicised criminal trial, and the suit he was wearing on the day of his acquittal has since become the subject of much legal wrangling.

Simpson's former manager, Mike Gilbert, claims the disgraced former football star gave him his clothing the day after his trial ended on 3 October 1995.

But Ron Goldman's father Fred, who is seeking to sell the suit Simpson wore to court - in a bid to settle the payout from a civil suit against the sportsman, insists he should have the suit.

Goldman and his family won a wrongful death lawsuit against Simpson, and they are pursuing the $42 million (£28.3 million) settlement while the star serves time in prison for his conviction on robbery and kidnapping charges in Las Vegas.

A hearing at Santa Monica Superior Court on Monday, heard testimony from Gilbert, who claimed the suit as his property because Simpson had not been found civilly liable for the two deaths when he gave him the garments.

Judge Gerald Rosenberg ruled the suit cannot be sold until ownership has been proved - demanding the item remain in storage until a decision can be made.


Williams Thankful For Ugly Betty Move
15 June 2009 12:15 PM, PDT

Vanessa Williams is relieved the Ugly Betty set has relocated to New York from Los Angeles - because she can spend more time with her family.

The first two seasons of the hit show were filmed in L.A. before shooting relocated to Manhattan last year.

And Williams, who plays Wilhelmina Slater, is thankful she can now live in her native city, because she found it unbearable spending so much time away from her four children.

She says, "I benefit too because all my kids are in New York. My two older girls (Melanie, 22, and Jillian, 20) are at college there, my son (Devin, 16) is in high school and Sasha is in third grade. So now I'm up in the morning and driving my kids to school. I pick them up in the evening and I can bring them home and cook for them.

"I've always wanted to have my children around. And if I'm not there in person, I'm constantly talking to them on my BlackBerry... My kids still sleep in my bed when they're scared and they want a snuggle. I love the closeness that I have with all my children."


Parker And Kodjoe Not Expecting Again
15 June 2009 12:15 PM, PDT

Actress Nicole Ari Parker has laughed off reports she and her actor husband Boris Kodjoe are expecting their third child together.

The 39 year old, who appears alongside Eddie Murphy in new movie Imagine That, has two kids with her former Soul Food TV co-star Kodjoe, but insists they have no plans to expand their family in the immediate future.

And she's baffled when fans approach her to wish her luck with the pregnancy - because she's been working on keeping trim and in shape.

She says, "Despite the rumours, I am not pregnant with our third child.

"People come up to me and congratulate me and I'm like, 'I do all these sit ups. Do you not see me in this sundress, do I look five months pregnant to you?' And they're like, 'No, but it said that in (the gossip blogs).' Then I say, 'But I'm standing here right in front of you!'"

The couple, which wed in 2005, share four-year-old daughter, Sophie, and two-year-old son, Nicolas.


Bullock Loves Her Role As Stepmum
15 June 2009 12:15 PM, PDT

Sandra Bullock is happy to play mum to her husband Jesse James' daughter Sunny - even though it hurts not to have children of her own.

The Proposal actress is stepmother to James' two children from his first marriage, and Sunny from his second wife, porn star Janine Lindemulder.

She is playing mum to Sunny while Lindemulder is serving a six-month jail sentence for tax evasion - and is loving her new role because it gives her a taste of what she's missing.

Bullock says, "I may never hear that word ‘mom'. But being a parent is not about breeding. It’s about caring. And it’s easy to say, but it’s harder to do.

"When you don’t have that title, you flounder and it hurts. But this is the best test of being a parent. And I just have to keep reminding myself I don’t care what I get. I care what I give.”


Wood Terrified To Be Axed From Allen's Whatever Works
15 June 2009 12:15 PM, PDT

Evan Rachel Wood feared director Woody Allen was going to fire her from new movie Whatever Works - after she screwed up her very first scene.

Wood was stunned when she received a handwritten note from the filmmaker asking her to review a copy of the script and leaped at the chance to work with him, despite battling nerves about starring in her first comedy.

And the 21 year old was certain Allen would give her the axe, after he demanded she reshoot her very first scene.

She tells the New York Daily News, "You hear things about what it's like to work with him. You know - he reshoots a lot, that people will get fired if it's not working. That he'll just say, 'This isn't working, I'll recast.'

"Knowing I hadn't done comedy before, I hadn't met him, I hadn't auditioned - the first day I was just convinced I was going to be fired. Sweating. I knew I could do it if I could just keep my nerves under control. But the first scene we shot we ended up reshooting anyway, so you're not going to see it."


Lohan Under Investigation Over Missing Jewels
15 June 2009 10:30 AM, PDT

Lindsay Lohan is at the center of a London police investigation in connection with the theft of jewelery from a magazine photo shoot.

The actress was in the English capital recently, when she posed for an upcoming spread in fashion glossy Elle, according to sources.

Website claims the actress kept asking about the gems on loan for the shoot - and then allegedly left with them.

An insider tells the website, "She kept going on about the jewels, asking if she could have them. We all thought she was joking."

The jewelers realized the $45,000 worth of bling was missing after the shoot and contacted magazine bosses, who insisted they had no knowledge of what had become of the gems.

The editors and jewellers then spent two weeks trying to get a response from the Mean Girls actress, but she reportedly left the U.K. last week without getting back to them.

According to the website, the matter was handed over to British police late last week.

This isn't the first time Lohan has been linked with stolen goods - Louis Vuitton bosses reportedly refuse to deal with her anymore after she repeatedly nabbed stuff from their shoots, and the actress was caught up in a fur coat fracas after allegedly taking home a Russian student's $11,000 mink from a New York club last year.

The coat’s rightful owner, Masha Markova, claimed Lohan swiped her coat - a gift from her grandmother - as she left a private party.

Markova feared she'd never see the fashion item again, but couldn't believe her luck when she saw Lohan wearing it in a magazine photo.

After threatening legal action and going public with the coat story, Markova's fur was returned to her.

Lohan's publicist failed to respond to WENN about this story before we went to press.


Westwick's Close Call With Cab
15 June 2009 9:12 AM, PDT

Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick was once knocked down by a car - because he was so engrossed in a game of soccer.

The actor was having a kick around with pals in a New York street, but failed to notice a cab was heading straight for him.

He tells Interview magazine, "The biggest trouble I got in was being hit by a cab when I was playing soccer in the street outside a bar somewhere - which is foolish, but that’s about it."


Glau Blames 'Creative Differences' For Snubbing Indie Film
15 June 2009 9:12 AM, PDT

Actress Summer Glau has dodged rumours she turned down the lead role in new film Trophy Kids after writers reportedly refused to bow to her demands for a script change.

Glau was scheduled to begin filming the independent movie this week (begs15Jun09) in New York, but was replaced by actress Tahnya Tozzi when her efforts to have a steamy onscreen kiss with co-stars Taniya Raymonde and Ryan Eggold added to the storyline were ignored, according to the New York Post.

A source says, "She wanted to cut a risque dream sequence where she kisses Taniya Raymonde and Ryan Eggold."

But Glau's spokesperson has refused to confirm or deny the claims, adding: "She passed on the film due to creative differences."


De Niro Dismisses Mob Photo
15 June 2009 9:12 AM, PDT

Robert De Niro has dismissed rumours he arranged meetings with a mob boss to research his role in crime comedy Analyze This - insisting he doesn't recall taking a never-before-seen photo with a gangster on set.

The Oscar-winning actor, who is famous for meticulously researching his roles, played a neurotic mafioso in the 1999 movie.

A source tells the New York Daily News Anthony Corozzo - an associate of the infamous Gambino crime family, who played an extra in Analyze This - introduced De Niro to mobster Anthony 'Fat Andy' Ruggiano. Ruggiano died in March 1999 and was involved in at least seven murders.

A photograph of the pair taken in De Niro's trailer has sparked rumours the actor set up meetings with members of the ruthless crime family to prepare for his role.

But De Niro's spokesperson Stan Rosenfeld insists the movie was made far too long ago for the actor to remember Ruggiano.

Rosenfeld adds: "Bob (De Niro) seldom, if ever, discusses his research techniques."


Cyrus: Hannah Montana To End After Next Season
15 June 2009 9:12 AM, PDT

Disney star Miley Cyrus will quit her role as Hannah Montana when the show's fourth season ends next year.

The 16 year old skyrocketed to stardom as a normal schoolgirl who leads a double life as a pop star at night.

Rumours Cyrus was itching to move on from the TV series were silenced when she signed up for another season of the hit show earlier this month.

But the star's dad Billy Ray Cyrus - who also plays her father in the programme - has confirmed the fourth season will be her last.

He tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "Quite frankly, I give a lot of credit to Miley for taking it to another year. She didn't want it to just end with whatever was the last episode we did... She wanted there to be an official ending to Hannah Montana."

Cyrus is scheduled to tape 11 episodes and a special one-hour series finale starting in January.


Willis Poses With New Bride In Provocative Photospread
15 June 2009 9:12 AM, PDT

Hollywood action star Bruce Willis has shocked fans by posing with new wife Emma Heming in a provocative fetish photospread for an American fashion magazine.

The 54-year-old Die Hard star and his 32-year-old bride, who married last March, appear together in a futuristic photoshoot featuring topless shots of Heming in the July issue of America's W magazine.

And Willis has given a peek into more than the couple's steamy love life; the actor has also opened up about the joy he's found with his new love since his split in 2000 from ex-wife Demi Moore.

He tells the magazine, "I spent the last 10 years single and, for the most part, unhappy... Then I started hanging around Emma, and... my life became much happier."


Potter Set Is Picked Apart
15 June 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

Actors and crew working on the new Harry Potter films are picking the set apart to find suitable souvenirs to take home once the movie franchise wraps up.

Stars including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, are close to finishing work on the last two films in the series - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - which will be split into two movies.

And as 10 years of work on the wizard films draws to a close, the actors have reportedly joined production staff in scouring the set for keepsakes.

Production designer Stuart Craig, who has been working on the film series at the Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, England, says, "The Great Hall (featured in the movies) is a bit like the Berlin Wall - you can see people standing in line waiting to get bits of it."


Seyfried Gives Up Her Broadway Dreams
15 June 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried has given up hope of ever starring in a Broadway musical - after she failed to make it past the audition stage for two upcoming productions.

The actress has always wanted to test her skills on the New York stage and has been a regular on the audition circuit as she attempts to land a role.

But Seyfried admits she is struggling to convince theatre producers to hire her - and the constant rejection may have ended her Broadway dreams for good.

She says, "I would love to do theatre acting, but I have been turned down from two Broadway productions, so maybe it isn't for me."


DiCaprio Makes Profit On House Sale
15 June 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

Leonardo DiCaprio has defied the ongoing slump in the U.S. property market to make a profit on the sale of his Californian home.

The Titanic star bought the Malibu, California house for $6.35 million (£4.2 million) in 2007 but recently placed the two-bedroom property up for sale.

And now the beach-side home, placed on the market for $7.9 million (£5.3 million), has sold - reportedly making the actor a $1.25 million (£833,000) profit, according to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.


Mag Denies Illegally Employing Willis' Daughter
15 June 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

Bosses of fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar have denied breaking the law by offering Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's daughter Tallulah Belle a work placement.

The 15 year old began an internship at the publication last week (begs08Jun09), but reports have circulated that the magazine has violated federal law due to her young age.

But a representative from Harper's Bazaar insists the work placement is perfectly legal - as Tallulah is only a "guest" of the magazine.

The spokesman tells the New York Post, "Tallulah is a guest of Harper’s Bazaar, shadowing our editors for a couple of weeks.”


Cooper Set For A-Team Movie
15 June 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

Actor Bradley Cooper has signed up to star in the upcoming A-Team movie - just weeks after denying his involvement with the film.

The 34 year old was rumoured to be taking on the big screen role of Lieutenant Templeton 'Faceman' Peck, made famous by Dirk Benedict in the hit 1980s TV series.

When confronted with the reports last month, Cooper denied he was involved with the production, insisting he hadn't even read a script for the A-Team picture.

But he has now confirmed he is to star in the movie, telling MTV News, "Yes I’ll be doing it.”

Liam Neeson, Bruce Willis, and rapper Common are rumoured to have roles in the film, which is scheduled for release in 2010.


Spacey's Movie Hit With Assault Claims
15 June 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

Bosses on Kevin Spacey's new movie Casino Jack have slammed reports a photographer was assaulted on-set - insisting it was the snapper who turned violent towards crew members.

An unnamed photographer started taking unauthorised shots of Spacey and the film set on Sunday before being asked to leave.

The cameraman claims he was grabbed by the arm and thrown into nearby bushes by crew working on the movie. He also alleges Spacey told him, "Don't ever take my picture and fight with the crew."

But assistants on the picture, which is shooting in Canada, have branded him a liar - and blamed him for assaulting a crew member.

Witnesses told the Ontario Provincial Police the photographer pushed one of the production assistants when he was asked to leave and "struck him in the neck with something".

The assistant claims the snapper stumbled while he was walking backwards up the steps, according to

Neither party is pressing charges.

15 June 2009 1:05 AM, PDT

My Big Fat Greek Wedding star Nia Vardalos is offering fans a glimpse of real Hollywood magic by posing for before and after make-up shots on her blog.

The actress has posted photos of herself with and without make-up in an effort to show fans exactly what she looks like before the experts make her red-carpet ready.

She says, "Check out my before pics on my Twitter.@NiaVardalos blog. I am showing what happens before Team Miracle comes over in the Hazmat suits and works on me for a few hours.

"Anyone can look like they make me look. That’s why most malls offer a Glamour Shots booth."


Miller Is Unlucky In Love
15 June 2009 1:05 AM, PDT

British actress Sienna Miller hates life as a single girl - but is scared of jumping in to new relationships because she gets her heart broken too easily.

The Alfie star, who has previously been involved with Jude Law and Balthazar Getty, admits she is a hopeless romantic and falls in love very quickly.

Miller insists she has never been a fan of casual sex and is much happier when she is in a relationship - but blames her free-spirited nature for leaving her vulnerable to heartbreak.

She tells Vogue magazine, "I’ve actually never been taken on a date in my whole life. I have never had a one-night stand. I’m a real relationship person - contrary to public perception. I’m either in one or I’m not. I get kind of emotionally involved very quickly, and I’m not going to spend time with someone unless I love them. But it’s not hard for me to fall in love.”


Arterton Engaged?
15 June 2009 1:05 AM, PDT

Bond girl Gemma Arterton is set to marry her boyfriend, according to British reports.

The Quantum of Solace star split from Spanish stuntman Eduardo Munoz in December and has since been involved with a new mystery man.

Arterton's unnamed suitor has now proposed, according to British tabloid The Sun. The publication claims the actress was spotted celebrating the happy news with friends at Britain's Download music festival this weekend (13-14Jun09).

A source tells the newspaper, "Gemma seemed really excited and was sharing the good news with people and telling them how over the moon she was. He was there with her and they seemed smitten with each other."


Stewart Praises Star Trek Movie
15 June 2009 1:05 AM, PDT

Former Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Patrick Stewart has praised director Jj Abrams for successfully resurrecting the franchise - insisting he "loved" the new movie.

Abrams brought the sci-fi franchise back to cinemas this year with Star Trek, a prequel to the original 1960s TV show, featuring a new cast of young actors.

Stewart played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the Star Trek: The Next Generation TV series for seven years and brought his character to the big screen in four spin-off films, including 2002's Star Trek Nemesis.

And the British star insists he is delighted the original show has been resurrected once again and is full of praise for Chris Pine, who portrays a young Captain James T. Kirk in the new movie.

He says, "He's brilliant, charming, funny and utterly delightful."

And Stewart is adamant he is not bitter about movie bosses' decision to leave him out of the new movie, adding, "I loved it. It was a very odd experience to be in the cinema watching a Star Trek movie that I wasn't in. With the exception of Leonard Nimoy, I didn't know any of the cast but it's still Star Trek. I got a great kick out of it."


Ford Is Highest Paid Actor
15 June 2009 1:05 AM, PDT

Harrison Ford has been named the highest earning actor in Hollywood - after he took home a massive $64.95 million (£43.3 million) in the last 12 months.

The veteran star returned to his role as the famed archaeologist in last year's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which went on to gross more than $750 million (£500 million) worldwide and earned Ford a bumper pay cheque.

The figures, from America's Forbes magazine, show Ford brought home the staggering sum between June 2008 and 2009.

Second in the list was funnyman Adam Sandler, who earned $54.9 million (£36.6 million) thanks to the success of his two films, Bedtime Stories and You Don't Mess With The Zohan.

Will Smith came in third with $45 million (£30 million), while the top five is rounded out by Eddie Murphy and Nicolas Cage who both earned $39.9 million (£26.6 million).


Cohen Threatened With Guns During Bruno Shoot
15 June 2009 1:05 AM, PDT

British comic Sacha Baron Cohen was reportedly threatened by a group of men with guns after embarrassing them as he filmed new movie Bruno in America's Deep South.

The funnyman was shooting scenes for the upcoming film in one of the USA's southern states last year with a group of deer hunters.

But the unsuspecting participants in the movie reportedly became angry when the star, in character as the flamboyant Austrian fashion journalist, stripped off and pranced naked around their campsite.

The hunters are then said to have turned their guns on Cohen, who was forced to flee with his film crew, according to British newspaper the Daily Mirror.

A source tells the publication, "The crew thought something serious would happen, they were in the middle of nowhere. The hunters thought he was an Austrian TV presenter doing a travel piece. But his behaviour became outrageous. He said they were all like Sex and the City girls and it all went downhill from there.

"Everyone had turned in for the night when Sacha started dancing around the campsite naked. They immediately went for their guns and loaded them in front of the camera. He tried to calm them down but they were furious so they had to get out of there. Everyone was really shaken up by it all."


Vardalos Fires Off At 'Fat-ist' Hollywood
14 June 2009 6:30 PM, PDT

Actress Nia Vardalos has fired off at Hollywood executives who greenlight film romances featuring "fat" Russell Crowe and Seth Rogen and then poke fun at her for finding love with hunks on the big screen.

The My Big Fat Greek Wedding star is tired of Tinseltown's double standards when it comes to pairing up stars for movie love stories - because older women can't get away with dating hunks, while ageing actors regularly romance hotties.

And she's had enough of the questions about her own onscreen match-ups with the likes of John Corbett and My Life In Ruins co-star Alexis Georgoulis.

She tells CNN, "On the publicity tour of My Big Fat Greek Wedding I was asked over and over again, if, as the writer, I felt it was a fair depiction of real life to have someone of my below average looks, hook up with hottie John Corbett.

"I thought I was attractive when I shot My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Studio executives and movie reviewers let me know I had a confidence in my looks that was not shared by them. In other words, they labelled me with words like, overweight, unattractive, unappealing. Hey, just say fat. I love the word fat. I used it in the title. It’s actually not a naughty word.

"I have sat through many a movie like Sideways, where nobody blinks an eye when Paul Giamatti gets together with gorgeous Virginia Madsen, and Knocked Up. I mean the visual of Seth Rogen on top of Katherine Heigl made me put the popcorn down and reach for my purse... because I knew the film was about to stop and Ashton Kutcher would now jump out and go, 'Aha, you’ve been punked.' I waited, but no Ashton.

"Socially, the issue of men’s weight is simply not a big deal. Let’s face it, Russell Crowe is fat and no one ever talks about it. Alec Baldwin just orders his suits a size bigger and we continue to swoon.

"Meanwhile, I get hit with this awkward question about my weightloss daily and I have answered it in press interviews, at the grocery store, at the newspaper stand. Why? Because I see their (people) anxious, open faces needing the secret, the new pill, the cure, anything: 'Just please share the secret'. So I hesitantly answer and I am always met with the same response: the glaze-eye, slack-jawed face.

"They don’t want to hear the truth - I had a blood sugar problem, so my doctor ordered me to lose weight. It was really hard but I did it through diet and exercise, and it took a year."


Smiths Plan Summer In China
14 June 2009 6:30 PM, PDT

Hollywood couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are planning to turn their Karate Kid remake into a family Chinese adventure.

The movie stars are producing the film, which features their son Jaden and martial arts king Jackie Chan, and they're taking all their kids to Beijing for the summer shoot.

Pinkett Smith tells U.S. news show Extra, "Will and I are producing our son's movie, Kung Fu Kid, and we'll be in Beijing for two-and-a-half months. We're really excited about that. The Smith clan will be in China this summer."


Newton To Teach Acting In South Africa

Thandie Newton is to put her acting skills to good use - passing on her talent to children in the slums of South Africa.

The Crash star is to teach acting at Oprah Winfrey's Leadership Academy, a boarding school for girls growing up in poverty in the country.

British-born Newton says, "I am really looking forward to it as it's such a great scheme and it's nice to give something back."

The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls opened in January 2007 after the country's former president, Nelson Mandela, asked the TV mogul to help support educational causes in South Africa.


Fox Not Yet Cast In Buffy Movie
14 June 2009 6:30 PM, PDT

Buffy The Vampire Slayer producers have brushed off rumours Hollywood siren Megan Fox has signed up to star in the TV show's upcoming big screen revival - insisting casting has yet to begin.

The title character in the blood sucking series, most famously played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, was originally brought to cinemas in the 1992 movie of the same name, starring Kristy Swanson.

Gellar's TV show ran for seven years before coming to an end in 2003.

And Fox has been a rumoured favourite to revive the series since studio bosses announced last month they are looking for a new vampire slayer to take the story back to the big screen.

But producer Roy Lee insists casting has yet to begin: "The rumours of Megan Fox being involved with Buffy are just rumours. As with any film project with a female lead under the age of 30, Megan is the actress that most studios want so it is no surprise her name is mentioned. While I think she would be great for our project, we are still in the early stages of developing the script."


Foxx: 'Berry Kiss Was A Joke'
14 June 2009 6:30 PM, PDT

Jamie Foxx has brushed off critics of his impromptu kiss with Halle Berry at a recent U.S. awards ceremony - insisting their lip lock was a prank conjured up by the actress.

Foxx presented the sexy star with the Hottest Girl On the Planet award at Spike TV's 2nd Annual Guy's Choice Awards in Los Angeles last month, and they shocked the audience with a passionate on stage embrace.

The actor/singer is still mesmerised by their steamy session, but insists he didn't step out of line by kissing the star - who shares a 15-month-old daughter, Nahla, with partner Gabriel Aubry.

Foxx explains, "It was a joke. First, I want to let everybody know that I respect Halle Berry and I respect her relationship. But after she won the (2001) Oscar, Adrien Brody came up and laid a little tongue on her. So she decided to get me back, which I didn't mind at all."

And the Ray star admits he was so nervous before pulling Berry's prank, he nearly backed out at the last second.

He adds, "I almost froze but I said, 'Think quick Foxx,' and I got into it... she really gave it to me and I appreciate that."


Historical Movie Jodhaa Akbar Sweeps Bollywood Film Awards
14 June 2009 6:30 PM, PDT

Historical love story Jodhaa Akbar has swept the board at the International Indian Film Academy awards - scooping six prizes.

The movie, which tells the tale of 16th century Mughal emperor Akbar and his romance with Hindu princess Jodhaa, landed a clutch of awards including Best Picture, Best Director for Ashutosh Gowariker and Best Actor for Hrithik Roshan.

Jodhaa Akbar also triumphed in categories for best song lyrics, best music direction for Oscar-winning composer Ar Rahman, and best male playback singer - which honours performers who record soundtracks for on-screen actors.

The movie's lead actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan failed to secure the coveted Best Actress award, but was instead named Best Actress Of The Decade and handed the prize for Outstanding Achievement In International Cinema.

Former Miss World, Priyanka Chopra, landed the Best Actress honour for her role in Fashion at the ceremony, which took place in Macau, southern China on Saturday night.
