You have to pay attention to the smallest thing from the birds chirping to the dog barking across the street. These are the things that make the world go around today. When you look at life in its simplest form, stress and worry isn't (sic) the cornerstones of your life. Experiencing life through that lens is refreshing."

Jon Hamm Dishes Out Advice To Teenage Girls


Mad Men star Jon Hamm has turned agony uncle by dishing out advice on everything from dating and sex to fashion in a new video blog aimed at teenage girls.

The actor, who plays smooth advertising executive Don Draper in the hit TV show, recorded a short film for's Ask a Grown Man blog spot, in which adults answer questions sent in by young female readers.

Hamm starts by responding to "Britney, age 16-ish" who asked what she should do about a boy who asks her out on a date one day but later changes his mind. He says, "Give the guy a break, maybe he changed his mind, maybe you changed your mind... The world's your oyster... If the guy doesn't want to get with you, don't sweat it. There's a lot of guys out there."

Hamm then moves on to fashion by answering a question from another girl about whether "guys care about a girl's style", telling her, "Guys have opinions like anybody, but you should have your own style. Dress how you feel comfortable in what you feel is your own particular style - what you like."

He also addressed the tricky topic of whether a girl should break wind in front of her boyfriend, telling the anonymous reader, "I was under the impression that girls never farted so I don't feel like I am capable of handling this. Of course... farting is farting. Everybody farts. Go and read that book Everybody Poops. It's the same thing."

He finished the blog by saying, "Well, these have been my five questions. I hope I've been helpful. I'm 41 years old. It doesn't mean you have to pay attention to me. You're probably all too young to watch Mad Men, so I don't know. Enjoy The Hunger Games."

Marion Cotillard Struggled With Rust And Bone Animal Scenes


Actress Marion Cotillard struggled to put on a happy face while working with killer whales in upcoming French movie Rust And Bone because she strongly opposes holding animals in captivity.

The Oscar winner, who plays paraplegic orca trainer Stephanie in the new romantic drama, began filming the project in France last autumn but she had just a few days to prepare her water-loving character due to her busy shooting schedule.

Cotillard reveals it wasn't easy learning to swim without the use of her legs.

She tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Training in the Mediterranean (Sea) was hard because I couldn't use my legs and there were strong currents, and it was freezing in October."

However, far more challenging was Cotillard's need to overlook her deep-rooted beliefs about caging wild animals.

She says, "I arrived directly in Antibes (in southeastern France) where their Marineland water park is. I've always had a repulsion going in a place where animals are in captivity. I had to work through my rejection of this world, which I still feel. But I had a job."

Due to a fatal accident at Florida's SeaWorld Orlando in 2010, Cotillard was never allowed in the water with the whales because of safety concerns, but her fearless behaviour impressed director Jacques Audiard.

He adds, "The day we shot, it was no longer an actress that we had but a trainer of orcas. She blew me away."

The movie is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France later this month. »

9 May 2012 7:31 PM, PDT

Actor Sean Bean was questioned by cops in London on Wednesday over allegations he has been harassing his ex-wife, according to a U.K. report.

The Game of Thrones star attended Holborn police station for a pre-arranged interview over claims he sent abusive texts and calls to ­Georgina Sutcliffe, who he split from in 2010, reports Britain's Daily Mirror.

Bean had his fingerprints and DNA taken during his time at the station, and was later bailed as officials continue their investigation into the case.

A source tells the publication, "Georgina's a smashing girl and she just wants to get on with her life and move on after the divorce.

"There's been no suggestion of there being violence involved or threats but police take harassment ­allegations seriously."

A Scotland Yard spokesman adds, "I can confirm a man was arrested on suspicion of harassment yesterday and bailed until a later date."

Bean married Sutcliffe, his fourth wife, in 2008. »

Cameron Diaz Pips Jolie To The Counselor


Cameron Diaz looks set to replace Angelina Jolie as the leading female in Ridley Scott's upcoming drug thriller The Counselor.

Jolie had previously expressed an interest in signing on for the film, which already features Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem and her fiance Brad Pitt, but scheduling difficulties are thought to have thwarted her plans and now reports Diaz is in "final negotiations" for the project.

Penelope Cruz is also said to have joined the star-studded cast, working alongside her husband Bardem.

Jolie and Pitt famously fell in love on the set of their first movie collaboration, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, in 2005. »

Anna Kendrick Lands Ellen DeGeneres As Her Interior Decorator


Actress Anna Kendrick has landed some star help to decorate her new home - comedienne and passionate interior designer Ellen DeGeneres has offered to take charge of the project.

The Twilight star recently moved into a new property in Los Angeles, but she's struggled to find the time to focus on her decor needs and moaned to DeGeneres about the difficulties she has been experiencing when she appeared on the funnywoman's U.S. talk show on Wednesday.

She explained, "I just moved in a week ago... Right now I have a mattress on the floor and just suitcases, well, cardboard boxes along the wall...

"When you move into a new house it's like every day you discover, 'Oh, this faucet is leaky' or 'This light's out' and it's my responsibility now. It's terrifying."

Kendrick admits she has no idea where to start when it comes to decorating her home, but she hopes to model her place on DeGeneres' Beverly Hills property, which was featured in trade paper Architectural Digest last November.

She told the TV presenter, "I don't really know what I'm doing, but I'm trying to learn. I'm sort of buying design magazines and stuff and I have your Architectural Digest on my vision board. Your house is on my vision board. Is this creepy, or flattering?"

DeGeneres was delighted to hear Kendrick is using her home as inspiration and when the actress jokingly asked if she'd like to do her house, the comedienne jumped at the chance, insisting, "I would love to. I really would... If that's your vision, I will do your house."

She added, "It's flattering, because it's my passion, I really love doing houses. I love decorating and I love buying houses." »

Tom Hanks In Negotiations For Broadway Bow


Tom Hanks is in talks to make his Broadway debut next year in a new play about famed New York reporter Mike McAlary.

The Hollywood star will lead the cast of Lucky Guy, portraying the New York Daily News columnist who covered some of the biggest crimes and police corruption scandals in the 1980s and '90s.

McAlary died from colon cancer in 1998, aged 41.

When Harry Met Sally screenwriter Nora Ephron penned the script, which will be directed by George C. Wolfe. Rehearsals are expected to begin in January, reports the New York Times.

Hanks has not acted on stage since 1979, when he appeared in a New York production of The Mandrake. »

Damian Lewis Considered Quitting Acting


British actor Damian Lewis considered quitting acting following his flop 2003 movie Dreamcatcher because shooting the project so far from home left him feeling like a loner.

The film adaptation of Stephen King's novel of the same name was only Lewis' second movie, but the star power of Morgan Freeman failed to pull in viewers and it raked in just $75 million (£46 million) worldwide.

And Lewis confesses the experience alone was enough to almost put him off a career in acting.

He tells the Mr Porter website, "I was a young 30, very much on my own and a long way from home. We shot in Vancouver for five months, and I mostly just sat in my hotel room on rainy days not knowing anyone. I think it scared me off a bit." »

British Actor Richard Gent Missing


Friends and family of British actor Richard Gent have appealed for information about the whereabouts of the star after he vanished more than two weeks ago.

Gent, who appeared in U.K. TV series Torchwood and Being Human, has not been seen since 21 April, when he cancelled plans to meet friends in London.

His loved ones have now spoken out about his disappearance in a bid to locate the actor.

Gent's mother Alison tells London's Evening Standard, "We cling to the hope that someone somewhere might just recognise him and bring him back to his family who miss him so much."

Alison reveals her son had been under pressure after losing a call centre job which had supported him when he was not acting or auditioning, but adds: "He loved London so much and the buzz of the place, and he wanted to try to make it work there. This is really out of the blue."

His Being Human co-star Russell Tovey has also taken to his page to spread the word, telling his fans, "Just seen this in the paper...hope Richard contacts his family very soon." »

Carmen Electra No Longer Engaged


Model/actress Carmen Electra and rocker Rob Patterson have called off their engagement.

The couple announced plans to wed in 2008, but Electra has since ended her relationship with the Filter musician, although they remain close and are still living in the same house.

A source tells Life & Style magazine, "It's off. She hasn't been wearing her ring for a while, but they're good friends and it's been really hard for them to fully separate."

News of the split emerges a day after the beauty was unveiled as a celebrity contestant on new U.S. TV dating show The Choice.

The insider adds, "Carmen's really nervous about getting back into the dating pool, so keeping Rob around makes her feel less anxious about being single. It's not like they'll get back together. The romance part is dead. They're done."

Electra was previously married to former basketball star Dennis Rodman and Jane's Addiction rocker Dave Navarro. »

Brendan Fraser Files Lawsuit Against New Movie Bosses


Brendan Fraser has filed a $3 million (£1.8 million) lawsuit against the makers of a new movie about William Tell, amid allegations the planned project has failed to materialise.

The Mummy actor claims producer Todd Moyer hired him to star in The Legend of William Tell: 3D early last year, with the shoot scheduled to begin in October.

Fraser alleges he passed up on several lucrative jobs to commit to the project - which is reportedly still in pre-production due to financing issues.

The actor has now taken legal action and filed papers at Los Angeles County Superior Court, demanding a $2.25 million (£1.4 million) payout he insists he's entitled to whether the film shoots or not. He's also asking for additional damages, taking the amount to $3 million, reports

However, Moyer is stunned by the legal action because he's adamant the project is still on, telling the website, "This is the first I have heard of this lawsuit. As we told Mr. Fraser's reps, we are ready, willing and able to make the movie for the September 3rd start date. (Producer) Julius Nasso and I have the movie fully financed.

"Unfortunately, Mr. Fraser does not seem to be interested in making the movie as a 2D film as the producers intend to do. This is not a contractual decision Mr. Fraser has the ability to make." »
