    Suede frontman Brett Anderson has revealed that he wants to release another "great record" with the band following the success of their most recent album, 'Bloodsports'.

    The LP was the band's first in over 10 years and entered the Official UK Albums Chart at Number 10, giving them their first Top 10 hit since 1999's 'Head Music'. Now, speaking to the Daily Star, the singer hinted that the reformed Britpop band could carry on making music together.

    Initially talking about former guitarist Bernard Butler, he said: "I've learned before, to my eternal regret, that if a creative relationship works you're a fool to throw it away." He then added: "So now Suede's relationships work again, I'd like to think we could make another great record to follow this great record and start a new chapter for the band."

    Anderson also said that the band had benefited from adopting a more mature approach to performing music, stating: "We're more focused and professional, which sounds really boring but it makes us better as we know how to channel our energy now. In the 90s, a gig was just another moment in the crazy carnival of our day. Now the shows are all we care about - I can't be bothered with the other bullshit any more.

    "I've done all that, and it's a dull cliche anyway, which I'll leave for new bands to find out for themselves," he added. "We know our job is to play great shows, which seems unromantic and not very rock 'n' roll, but it means when we're on stage there's fireworks."

    Earlier this week, Anderson slated the state of the UK's Top 40 after claiming that record companies "play safe" and said that they "can't afford to nurture something interesting so music is made by committee". Speaking in a recent issue of NME, meanwhile, he suggested that many of today's alternative rockers are too careeriest in their motives.

    "I think being in an alternative rock band has become a career over the years, sadly," he said. "I never thought I was embarking on a career in 1989 – we didn't think five days ahead, let alone five years. I don't think a band nowadays would have the motivation to make a record like 'Dog Man Star' for their second album. We were always maverick, a bit 'fuck you' to the record label."

    A new poll by Fabriah.com asked 1,000 people to vote for the worst hair fads of the last 13 years, with the Barbadian singer scoring a massive 20% of the vote.

    David Beckham’s infamous cornrows and Kelly Osbourne’s Mohawk weren't far behind the ‘Skrillex’ trend, named after the dubstep DJ's long dark style with one side of his head shaved.

    Beckham's braids scored a huge 19% of the vote, narrowly missing out on the Worst Hair Trend title. The footballer later admitted he must have been drunk when we decided to opt for the style!

    In third place was Hollywood A-lister Scarlett Johansson and her infamous mullet followed by Kelly Osbourne’s Mohawk, which scored 16% and 14% respectively.

    Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘greasy’ hairstyle won fifth place with 12%, beating singing superstar Christina Aguilera and her dreadlocks into sixth place.

    Justin Timberlake’s blonde curls just topped comedian Russell Brand’s mad hairstyle to be voted as the seventh worst hair trend with six per cent of the vote and the final two places were taken up by music mogul Simon Cowell’s flattop middle parting and eccentric singer Nicki Minaj’s myriad of colourful hairstyles and wigs.

    One voter had this to say: “What is with the fascination with the ‘Skrillex’ haircut? All these celebrities think they’re so cool, but you can just see kids following this stupid trend. How are they going to get jobs with a half shaven head?”

    Another said: “David Beckham has had some brilliant hairstyles but those cornrows were a shocker. It looks like Victoria dared him to do it. All those people who copied him should be ashamed of themselves.”

    One lady commented: “The one thing I can’t stand is guys with shoulder length hair. Russell Brand looks like he needs a good makeover. Seriously, how does he manage to look after it?”

    Francecsa Davies from Fabriah.com commented on the results: “I am not at all surprised the ‘Skrillex’ look claimed the prize as the worst hair trend of the 21st Century.

    “What is surprising however, is the number of people still copying the style. I would never have imagined the haircut becoming so popular.

    “The list shows that even the most stylish celebrities can make a hair mistake, David Beckham’s cornrows and Christina Aguilera’s dreadlocks definitely spring to mind.”

    See the Top Ten in full:

    1. Rihanna’s ‘Skrillex’ look – 20%

    2. David Beckham’s cornrows – 19%

    3. Scarlett Johansson’s mullet – 16%

    4. Kelly Osbourne’s Mohawk – 14%

    5. Cristiano Ronaldo – greasy hair – 12%

    6. Christina Aguilera’s dreadlocks – 7%

    7. Justin Timberlake’s blonde curls – 6%

    8. Russell Brand’s long hair – 3%

    9. Simon Cowell’s flattop parting – 2%

    10. Nicki Minaj general hair styles – 1%

    The screentest is the last hurdle an actor has to jump over before being given the role that could change his or her life forever. A nobody can instantly become a somebody, or an actor can just continue the struggle of looking for work. For many of the talented actors on this list of those who missed out, it was only a matter of time before the big role came along. For others, however, the story is not as kind, and these screentests probably keep them from sleeping most nights.

    It is strange to think how incredibly different some films would have been if a different actor had won the role…

    5. Tom Selleck – Raiders of the Lost Ark

    This one doesn’t have as happy of an ending. Tom Selleck’s screentest to be Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark was so good that he was offered the role of the man who would become film history’s most famous archaeologist. Tom Selleck was Indiana Jones! Perhaps even sadder than missing out on the role because simply someone else was cast instead of you, Tom Selleck missed out on the role because he decided to become Magnum P.I. instead.

    Magnum P.I. certainly was a huge hit for Tom Selleck, as the TV show ran for eight seasons and over 150 episodes, so you can’t say that it was a career ending mistake, but it did turn out that Tom Selleck really didn’t have to choose one over the other.

    As if some great cosmic joke, Selleck’s schedule opened up when there was a six month writer’s strike in Hollywood that delayed the filming of Magnum P.I. During those six months, Harrison Ford had stepped in, the movie had been filmed, and a billion dollar francise was born.

    4. Dan Fogler – Sam Kinison Biopic

    Even with a Tony Award for his work in The 25th Annual Putnum County Spelling Bee and many roles in film and television, Dan Fogler isn’t an actor many people know by name. Clearly a talented comedian, Dan has yet to have a breakthrough film role. Playing someone as revered as Sam Kinison certainly could be the role that changes that. Talk of this biopic has been around since 2008, so it is probably safe to say this movie will never happen; at least not with this director, this script, and most likely, this actor.

    Besides possessing a strikingly similar look, Dan perfectly emulates Kinison’s “ticking timebomb” delivery. Without taking the easy route of just simply doing an impression, in this screentest, Fogler seems like a fully formed human being. Kinison said that he took a lot of his delivery from Gene Wilder, but brought it to a new level. There is something beautiful about an actor, on the fringe of Hollywood stardom, taking Sam Kinison’s delivery (and legacy) to a new level.

    Unfortunately for Dan Fogler, even a very impressive screentest doesn’t always mean you get the part… or that the movie will even get made at all.

    3. Scarlett Johannson – Jumanji

    Scarlett Johannson was once a child actor, years before becoming one of the most dreamed about women alive. Though this seems more like an initial audition than a screentest, I find it hard to believe this footage would still be around unless she was being seriously considered. Scarlett seems like a very focused and mature child, who actually appears to be having a conversation. This girl really means business and looks like she is working. She also is very cute.

    I wonder how much of the film had been explained to Scarlett before being put on camera because Jumanji was a very scary movie for me to understand at that age and being stuck in a horrifying jungle for over 25 years still scares me. Scarlett may just have been too brave to get the role of a terrified child, as she did not get the part. The role of “Judy” instead went to a young actress named Kirsten Dunst.

    2. Kurt Russell – Star Wars

    Oh, yes. Another one of Harrison Ford’s billion dollar francise characters almost went to another action star. Before Big Trouble in Little China and escaping from both New York and L.A., Kurt Russell had a screentest for the role of “Han Solo”. There is a lot of footage of his screentest and there is no doubt Kurt Russell could have played Han Solo well. His attitude, voice, and look all seem to fit, even with these strange actors he is forced to screentest with. The biggest issues with Kurt’s screentest are Luke and Leia, who seem to be more likely be from New York than Polis Massa.

    Kurt Russell also has the lines down and seems to understand what he’s talking about, even though I doubt no one could fathom the scope of Star Wars or what George Lucas was envisioning. Harrison Ford did however get the role, of course, and it would take a few more years for Kurt Russell to become a big star. Strangely enough, Kurt Russell did get a role the same year that the first Star Wars film came out, but it was on an episode of Hawaii Five-O… what is it about Harrison Ford and taking roles away from men in Hawaii?

    1. Chris Klein – Mamma Mia!

    Last, but not least, possibly the most entertaining screentest in the history of film. Before launching into his crazy-eyed rendition of ABBA’s “Lay All Your Love On Me”, Chris Klein makes the room very uncomfortable with his admission of his secret love for Mandy Moore and admitting that his singing is better than he has let on in his previous films.

    As we soon get to see, his singing is still not good. The poor guy is singing octaves both below and above where he should, his voice cracks, he can’t remember the words, and then is met with complete silence upon finishing.

    This screentest is certainly cringeworthy, but Chris Klein at least gives it everything he’s got. There is a fearless quality to this truly horrible audition and for that, I think Chris Klein deserved at least some role in the film version of Mamma Mia!

    In nearly 20 years as a Hollywood star, Ewan McGregor has been a prominent figure in the world of mainstream and independent cinema. He has successfully accomplished the daunting task of moving between genres without his fanbase or stock levels diminishing greatly, while crafting roles that are masterful, engaging and thrilling. Of course not everything the Scottish actor has done has been critically or commercially successful, but more often than not he has produced acting performances that allow his films to become more than what it should, extending his abilities and enthusing them with a vigour and passion that wouldn’t of been possible in anybody else’s hands.

    His latest film Jack The Giant Slayer, based on the fairy tales “Jack and The Beanstalk” & “Jack The Giant Killer”, is released in UK cinemas today and while it has gathered average reviews from critics and has been underwhelmed at the US box office, here’s hoping that it finds success here and across Europe in the coming weeks.

    Due to the film’s release here in the UK today, Ewan McGregor is the latest actor for a close examination of his career as we remember 5 Awesome Performances and 5 That Sucked…

    5 Awesome Performances…
    5. Big Fish – Young Edward Bloom

    Tim Burton’s most restrained film Big Fish tells the story of Edward Bloom, an enthused storyteller who likes to recount tales that have happened to him over the years that vary from those of generosity, to to those of love. The story begins with an older Edward Bloom, played brilliantly by Albert Finney, recounting the tale of the day he caught the uncatchable fish, leading us to meet Edward Bloom in his youth played by Ewan McGregor. This begins the magical journey that Burton and screenwriter John August take us on for two hours of glorious cinema.

    Big Fish really is a movie that has to be sat through multiple times in order to fully appreciate. It blends reality and fantasy wonderfully and has a pure heart at its core.

    McGregor is enigmatic and charming in the lead role, possessing the ability for audiences to feel sympathy and engage with Edward, something particularly crucial when spending so much time in a characters’ presence. If you’re familiar with Burton’s previous work but have missed out on this, give it a try, you may be pleasantly surprised.

    4. Moulin Rogue – Christian

    On paper, Moulin Rogue shouldn’t have worked. By the start of the 21st century, musicals were simply not mainstream anymore and were declared dated. However Baz Lurhmann had other ideas and did his best to bring musicals back and in a big way! He cast Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman as the romantic pair Christian and Santine that fell in love in Paris in the early 20th century. The chemistry between McGregor and Kidman is off the charts and there can be no denying that McGregor’s performance is pure brilliance, excelling in the dramatic scenes but also showcasing his versatility with his vocal talent.

    Blending modern music to its historical setting, Moulin Rouge is a brash, bold and ultimately joyous musical that captures the trials and tribulations that love can have over a person and the risks they are willing to take to get it. McGregor was Golden Globe nominated for his performance.

    3. Beginners – Oliver
    2. The Impossible – Henry Bennett
    1. Trainspotting – Mark Renton

    And 5 Performances That Sucked…
    5. Deception – Jonathan McQuarry

    Released in 2008, Deception stars Ewan McGregor as the nervous and timid Jonathan McQuarry who befriends Hugh Jackman’s incredibly charismatic and arrogant lawyer named Wyatt Bose, and starts to gain some of the self-confidence that Bose possesses. The plot focuses on both being part of an exclusive sex club while both falling in love with the woman simply known as “S”, played by Michelle Williams.

    The problem with the film is that it’s just far too predictable and could easily have been a straight to DVD release had it not had an A-list cast. McGregor in particular just doesn’t seem to be interested in finding the intricacies of the character and when the shift in tone changes within the film the contrast in personality on McQuarry is far too obvious and two dimensional. The performance needed a more gradual shift in personality but instead it all happens very suddenly as his love S is placed in danger.

    Admittedly Jackman as the pretentious Bose does provide some enjoyment as a very serious threat to McGregor’s McQuarry, but in the end the film is merely a standard thriller that was critically and commercially unsuccessful.

    4. Angels & Demons – Camerlengo Patrick McKenna

    Ron Howard’s adaptation of the Dan Brown novel The Da Vinci Code was incredibly successful at the box office and despite a critical mauling, a second adaptation was inevitable. Starring Tom Hanks as the protagonist Robert Langdon, Angels and Demons see another intricate plot involving conspiracies surround the Catholic Church, or more specifically around the time or electing a new pope.

    The film, while arguably better than the convoluted The Da Vinci Code, is still a very average throwaway thriller that doesn’t really generate any real suspense and plods along until its admittedly, decent conclusion. However there were changes from novel to film, something normally expected with an adaptation, but in particular one change that involves McGregor’s character is slightly baffling.

    In the novel, McGregor’s role is that of a Spanish priest named Carlo Ventresca, but for reasons that are bewildering the role was switched to a Northern Irish priest named Patrick McKenns and thus McGregor must provide the suitable accent for the role. It really can be seen as a very bizarre switch considering that McGregor’s performance doesn’t really give any suggestion to the audience that the change was necessary. It’s a very bland, laboured and apathetic performance that doesn’t instill any of the character traits from the novel and an actor such as Javier Bardam would have been able to bring the impassioned pain and eeriness that Camerlengo exudes.

    In the end, the film and the performance by McGregor are forgettable, which is a shame as I feel another approach to the film may have allowed the film to feel more authentic and a better film as a result.

  • 04/01/13--14:06: TMZ lying? What else is new
  • Lindsay Lohan did not make any demands for Adderall in rehab plea deal



    Lindsay Lohan's lawyer is scoffing at a report the actress agreed to rehab only if the facility allowed her to take Adderall.

    According to TMZ.com, the "Liz & Dick" star takes the psychostimulant for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder on a daily basis and was prepared to go ahead with a trial in her recent lying-to-cops case unless her ongoing Adderall use was attached to her plea deal.

    The deal, approved by a California judge two weeks ago, includes 90 days of residential rehab, 18 months of psychological counseling and 30 days of community service.

    Lohan's lawyer Mark Heller said the no-jail plea agreement did not include an Adderall rider.
    "That was never a part of any discussion with the prosecutors or the court. That was never an issue we addressed,"Heller said Monday.

    "Prosecutors or the court would never interject themselves into medical determinations," he said.

    "Patients traditionally apprise facilities of what medications, if any, they're prescribed, and after a full series of medical evaluations, each facility determines what medications, if any, are going to be allowed. This is never dictated by the patient. It's always determined by medical staff who are well qualified."



    One of Lohan's 2010 probation reports said the scandal magnet had been taking the amphetamine-based prescription drug "for as long as she can remember."

    The report listed her other prescriptions as the antidepressants Zoloft and trazadone and the powerful opiate Dilaudid.
    Heller said Monday he was “considering a number of different facilities” that meet Lohan's court-ordered needs.

    She has until May 2 to enroll in rehab or risk immediate jail.

    Sources previously said Lohan planned to do the rehab time in New York, but Heller said he wasn't ruling out other areas.

    “I don't know where it will happen yet," he said. “We want to make a measured and intelligent choice. I'm hoping this week we'll be in a position to assess what's next."

    The judge said Lohan can't leave the facility on "day passes" because the treatment is in lieu of jail.
    “It doesn't have to be locked like a correctional facility. It doesn't have to be that hardcore. But it has to be a place where if she leaves, they notify us," Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White previously told The News.

    “She has to follow the program and can't leave the property," White, a key prosecutor behind her deal, said. "If she leaves, it's a violation."

    Kim Zolciak has released an official press statement via her representation in response to being sued by Kandi Burruss for “Tardy for the Party.

    The lawsuit led by Kandi Burruss and Rodney Richard aka Don Vito against Kim Zolciak-Biermann over the song “Tardy For The Party” is without merit and suspicious in its timing. We also find the handling of the lawsuit by another cast member on the show, and the timing of Kandi’s attempt to launch her own spinoff reality show, raises serious questions about the true motives behind the filing this lawsuit for alleged record royalties due from a song that was released over three and a half years ago.

    The song was created by four people who share in the royalties: Kim, her daughter (who co-wrote the original song in season one of the RHOA show before Kandi joined the show in season two) Kandi and Don Vito.  To date, Kim has written checks to Kandi and Don Vito in excess of $23,000. In fact, we believe that Kim may have overpaid a portion of their share to date based on the actual record sales.

    Ryan Gosling, star of The Place Beyond the Pines, self-generated retirement reports, and our fantasies, is now headlining an unfortunately timed casting rumor circulating Hollywood. Per a report in The Daily Mail, Gosling “has been approached” to play South African Olympian Oscar Pistorius—who fatally shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp this past Valentine’s Day—in an upcoming film. A Hollywood “mole” tells the British paper that several scripts on the subject are already being developed. “You’ve got one of the world’s most famous sportsmen under arrest and a beautiful young woman who meets a violent death . . . Scripts began doing the rounds within days of the scandal breaking.” The Mail also notes that Charlize Theron, who is from South Africa, “is tipped to portray” Steenkamp.

    It seems unlikely that this potential project will take shape as reported—if not because of Gosling’s self-imposed acting sabbatical, then because the movie seems entirely “too soon.” Hollywood has only just publicly entered the TV-documentary stage of milking this tragic story for ratings.

    At the initial stages in her career, roles in quaint period dramas Waterland, with Jeremy Irons and Merchant Ivory’s The Remains of the Day were positively grooming young Lena Headey for life as an English rose.

    So something clearly went a little off somewhere along the way.

    Her incarnation as Cersei Lannister is just the latest in a string of parts after 300’s Queen Gorgo and Sarah Connor in the shamefully axed Terminator TV series, the 5’4 Huddersfield stunner admits she’s no idea where her action star reputation came from.

    “It’s just an odd association at this stage,” she cheerfully laughs. “I’m this tiny little woman, I wouldn’t mind if I was of you know, Amazonian stature, Brigette Nielsen, so it really makes no sense. I have the weakest little muscles.
    Headey returns for a hotly anticipated third season of George Martin’s fantasy epic,

    which sees Cersei broken down after Tyrion accumulated more sway over the Iron Throne while she stood trial for framing Maegary Tyrell for murder.


    But according to the actress, our favourite Thrones vixen is staging a comeback.
    The youthful 39-year-old actress, who has a two year-old son Wiley, from her marriage to musician Peter Loughran, is speaking in London’s Corinthia Hotel, wearing black, wet look skinny jeans and a flowing white shirt.

    So Lena, what can you reveal about Cersei in season three? When we left her, she was pretty much defeated after standing trial for framing Maegery and her walk of penance.
    This is Cersei at her lowest right now but she is not a woman to be crossed. I can’t obviously reveal the details, although if you’ve read the books, you have a fair idea what’s coming.
    She has been broken and battered, it’s high time that she rose like a phoenix from the ashes and unleashed hell. Let’s just say I had more fun than should be allowed as character, and Cersei is undoubtedly the best role I’ve ever had in my career. I just want Game of Thrones to go on and on and on.


    Would it be correct to say she feels like she’s created a monster in Joffery?
    Of course, to a certain extent but I don’t think that could be anything she would ever admit to herself. Cersei is completely aware of what he has done and will continue to do but despite all this, her only concern is his safety.
    It’s very uncomfortable this season with Joffrey, she feels the judgment from her own father.

    Does she even want power?
    Oh absolutely, without a doubt! That’s her main motivation in life. If she could sit on the throne, she would.
    Such a large part of Cersei wants to be a man, she’s very jealous of her two brothers. She has a high regard for Tyrion, I think she’d like to be him, in certain degrees, there’s just so much messed up [stuff] going on.
    More than anything else, this season she fascinates me more than ever before.

    She fascinates all of us.
    And I’m incredibly proud of that fact, that she strikes and stirs that emotion within others, it’s so rewarding.

    Your Cersei, she’s different than the Cersei of the book, do you think that’s your intentional doing, or just how it happened?
    It’s what I do as an actor, at the end of the day, it’s my interpretation of the script and the words but ultimately they’re not my words, are they? That’s not what acting is all about.
    Personally in no way am I like, ‘I’ll change the character’ I just feel like there has to be progression. There always has to be secrets and you know, I always try to keep her vulnerability, her fear hidden.
    To be honest, I got criticised for being too nice in season one. All that was being written about me was , ‘She’s not evil enough, she’s not this that or the other and I’m like ‘well you know, she has to have somewhere to go, there’s has to be some darkness to her light.
    All of the characters, there’s an onion skin effect, and there’s layers and changes and just when someone feels like they’ve got you nailed, they go in the complete opposing direction and I love that.

    What does Cersei live by?
    Like what’s her mantra in life?

    Yea, what’s her compass as it were?
    Blood is thicker than water [laughs]. It’s blood, you know blood, no matter what anyone does, blood ties all.

    What’s the stand out moment for you that you can’t wait for people to see in season three?
    Well, there’s none that I say if I’m quite blunt about it [laughs]. Stop trying to trip me up.
    I guess I really love her relationship with her father, it’s like she steps back to a teenager with him, because they are so combative. They’re kind of the same person. He doesn’t like any of his children, but he likes her least and likes her and Tyrion on a par. He likes to play them off each other.

    From Gorgo in 300, to Sarah Connor, Ma-ma in Dredd and Cersei, why are you continuously cast in these roles?
    I really have no idea and find it so very peculiar that I land these roles again and again. Initially in my career, I was more drawn to independent movies, much more emotive set pieces and a switch came along where I was throwing punches and maiming folk.
    I’m not a tough person, well I can look after myself but I’m pretty sure I don’t put that perception out there. But Thrones, 300, Dredd, I’m having the time of my life with these movies. I say keep it coming.
    It still remains a little strange why a girl from Yorkshire is beating up all these tough guys. I’ll never figure that one out.

    Some of Cersei’s outfits and same in 300, are quite revealing, is that motivation to keep fit?
    When you’re handed a costume that’s ultimately just rags, that’s really no better motivation to hit the gym. Although I do use a body double for some of the naughtier scenes. When you see Gorgo’s bum, yea, that’s not mine. Mine’s not half as good.

    What’s the reaction like on the street? Do you have any odd fan encounters?
    All I’ll say is, ‘thank God for the joys of that long blonde wig’, otherwise I’d get it a lot worse. When fans of the show do recognise me however, I get shouted at. You know, friendly stuff like that [laughs]. I guess either one is kind of a compliment, means I must be doing something right.

    You’re starring in one of the biggest shows on television yet against the odds, maintain an odd anonymity within your personal life? How do you manage that?
    I rarely say yes to interviews, photo-shoots, any kind of publicity really. You’re lucky I’m talking to you right now [laughs].
    It’s so tricky these days, you’re not expected to be an actor anymore, they want more and more and more. My bosses are terribly frustrated with my ‘under the radar’ mindset but you know what, I didn’t get into this business to sell myself, simple as that.
    I like my little life and that’s what keeps me sane and I have a high value on that. My job is my job and I’m happy for that to be judged because it’s in public. I say no to so much stuff and I know it upsets some people, but is what it is.

    You film mainly in Belfast but you’re based with your son in LA. How do you keep the balance? It must be tough as he’s so young.
    It’s hard but that’s the reality of it all, I have to work. He’s too young to be bouncing back and forth across the Atlantic so of course, any free moment I have, I’m straight back to LA to be with him. It’s heart-breaking to be so far away but that’s work and I have to work.

    How often do you get back?
    Every two weeks, or a week. Anytime time off, I’m racing back to me a mummy but to be a working parent is hard but to be a working mother is so tough.
    I did a little film here in the UK for six weeks last year and I brought him for that which was lovely. It was funny because every day, he would ask, where’s the sun? And you’re like, ‘it’s like that over here, get used to it.’

    Do you think you’ll ever move back to the UK?
    My heart is in LA now, it’s so healthy

    Could come back and do a soap opera here?
    [Laughs] Yea, maybe. Not Eastenders, but maybe Corrie. I’m a huge Corrie fan.

    Stepping away from action fantasy, what are you career goals?
    I so badly want to do a comedy. I want to get back where I started, to more indie movies. Things have gotten a little too big for me lately. And I miss the contemporary British dramas.
    Oh, and I’d love to do a Pedro Almodavar film, that would be a dream come true. Although I’d have to learn Spanish. That could be tricky.

    What’s next for you on the cards?
    Well I’m working on The Mortal Instruments in Canada right now, with a few of your Irish actors whom I’ve never worked with any of them before but I am so incredibly excited to have the three of them involved.
    I’ve heard fantastic word of Aidan Turner and Robert [Sheehan]’s work and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, he’s such a beautiful talent… and man, obviously, you know with that contingent on set, there’s going to be laughs, and lots of them.

    Obviously... and will you be rejoining 300 in the sequel as Gorgo? Gerard Butler isn’t coming back.
    I know which is a shame but that’s just how it goes. I’ve already filmed that and it’s only small part but it was so exciting to work with that team again.

    And of course a new series of Game of Thrones to look forward to?
    Well of course, all going to plan. But Cersei may not even survive this season.

    Is that a tip-off there?
    Could be, could not be...

    Kirstie has launched an all-out attack on pharmaceutical companies and makers of antidepressants. Alley got into a heated Twitter debate after posting a series of controversial comments about the use and administration of the drugs.

    "HOW is it legal to INTICE people to down TWO mind altering drugs by using cartoon characters to depict the DRUGS? ABILIFY," Alley tweeted. "Big PHARMA not marketing to youth? ABILIFY… Talking umbrella, cute little smiley pill, while lethal side effects like suicide r rattled off," she added.

    Some fans tweeted their own experience with the drug, which varied from the lifesaving to the extremely negative. Alley never let up on her own stance though, no matter how others felt.

    "You can hate me for my viewpoint, but on this it won't change… some things are just not right… a 'little bit of slavery' is not acceptable," Alley posted.

    Scientology teaches that psychiatry is dangerous and any mental illnesses could be overcome with methods other than drugs. Tom Cruise famously defended Scientology's views on antidepressants after Brooke Shields admitted that she had used them while suffering from postpartum depression.

    When asked what made her an expert on the subject, Alley quickly fired off an explicit reply. "I don't know," Alley tweeted, "guess the same thing that makes u a [expletive]… experience."

    "I'm getting off here… I'm causing way too much controversy… Ours has become a country of medicos and drugs, but we just keep gettin sicker. Poor God… He sure has his work cut out for him," Alley tweeted before leaving the conversation.

    At the initial stages in her career, roles in quaint period dramas Waterland, with Jeremy Irons and Merchant Ivory’s The Remains of the Day were positively grooming young Lena Headey for life as an English rose.So something clearly went a little off somewhere along the way.

    Her incarnation as Cersei Lannister is just the latest in a string of parts after 300’s Queen Gorgo and Sarah Connor in the shamefully axed Terminator TV series, the 5’4 Huddersfield stunner admits she’s no idea where her action star reputation came from.

    “It’s just an odd association at this stage,” she cheerfully laughs. “I’m this tiny little woman, I wouldn’t mind if I was of you know, Amazonian stature, Brigette Nielsen, so it really makes no sense. I have the weakest little muscles.
    Headey returns for a hotly anticipated third season of George Martin’s fantasy epic, which sees Cersei broken down after Tyrion accumulated more sway over the Iron Throne while she stood trial for framing Margaery Tyrell for murder.

    But according to the actress, our favourite Thrones vixen is staging a comeback.

    The youthful 39-year-old actress, who has a two year-old son Wiley, from her marriage to musician Peter Loughran, is speaking in London’s Corinthia Hotel, wearing black, wet look skinny jeans and a flowing white shirt.

    So Lena, what can you reveal about Cersei in season three? When we left her, she was pretty much defeated after standing trial for framing Maegery and her walk of penance.
    This is Cersei at her lowest right now but she is not a woman to be crossed. I can’t obviously reveal the details, although if you’ve read the books, you have a fair idea what’s coming.
    She has been broken and battered, it’s high time that she rose like a phoenix from the ashes and unleashed hell. Let’s just say I had more fun than should be allowed as character, and Cersei is undoubtedly the best role I’ve ever had in my career. I just want Game of Thrones to go on and on and on.
    Would it be correct to say she feels like she’s created a monster in Joffery?

    Of course, to a certain extent but I don’t think that could be anything she would ever admit to herself. Cersei is completely aware of what he has done and will continue to do but despite all this, her only concern is his safety.
    It’s very uncomfortable this season with Joffrey, she feels the judgment from her own father.
    Does she even want power?
    Oh absolutely, without a doubt! That’s her main motivation in life. If she could sit on the throne, she would.
    Such a large part of Cersei wants to be a man, she’s very jealous of her two brothers. She has a high regard for Tyrion, I think she’d like to be him, in certain degrees, there’s just so much messed up [stuff] going on.
    More than anything else, this season she fascinates me more than ever before.
    She fascinates all of us.
    And I’m incredibly proud of that fact, that she strikes and stirs that emotion within others, it’s so rewarding.
    Your Cersei, she’s different than the Cersei of the book, do you think that’s your intentional doing, or just how it happened?
    It’s what I do as an actor, at the end of the day, it’s my interpretation of the script and the words but ultimately they’re not my words, are they? That’s not what acting is all about.
    Personally in no way am I like, ‘I’ll change the character’ I just feel like there has to be progression. There always has to be secrets and you know, I always try to keep her vulnerability, her fear hidden.
    To be honest, I got criticised for being too nice in season one. All that was being written about me was , ‘She’s not evil enough, she’s not this that or the other and I’m like ‘well you know, she has to have somewhere to go, there’s has to be some darkness to her light.
    All of the characters, there’s an onion skin effect, and there’s layers and changes and just when someone feels like they’ve got you nailed, they go in the complete opposing direction and I love that.
    What does Cersei live by?
    Like what’s her mantra in life?
    Yea, what’s her compass as it were?
    Blood is thicker than water [laughs]. It’s blood, you know blood, no matter what anyone does, blood ties all.
    What’s the stand out moment for you that you can’t wait for people to see in season three?
    Well, there’s none that I say if I’m quite blunt about it [laughs]. Stop trying to trip me up.
    I guess I really love her relationship with her father, it’s like she steps back to a teenager with him, because they are so combative. They’re kind of the same person. He doesn’t like any of his children, but he likes her least and likes her and Tyrion on a par. He likes to play them off each other.
    From Gorgo in 300, to Sarah Connor, Ma-ma in Dredd and Cersei, why are you continuously cast in these roles?
    I really have no idea and find it so very peculiar that I land these roles again and again. Initially in my career, I was more drawn to independent movies, much more emotive set pieces and a switch came along where I was throwing punches and maiming folk.
    I’m not a tough person, well I can look after myself but I’m pretty sure I don’t put that perception out there. But Thrones, 300, Dredd, I’m having the time of my life with these movies. I say keep it coming.
    It still remains a little strange why a girl from Yorkshire is beating up all these tough guys. I’ll never figure that one out.
    Some of Cersei’s outfits and same in 300, are quite revealing, is that motivation to keep fit?
    When you’re handed a costume that’s ultimately just rags, that’s really no better motivation to hit the gym. Although I do use a body double for some of the naughtier scenes. When you see Gorgo’s bum, yea, that’s not mine. Mine’s not half as good.
    What’s the reaction like on the street? Do you have any odd fan encounters?
    All I’ll say is, ‘thank God for the joys of that long blonde wig’, otherwise I’d get it a lot worse. When fans of the show do recognise me however, I get shouted at. You know, friendly stuff like that [laughs]. I guess either one is kind of a compliment, means I must be doing something right.
    You’re starring in one of the biggest shows on television yet against the odds, maintain an odd anonymity within your personal life? How do you manage that?
    I rarely say yes to interviews, photo-shoots, any kind of publicity really. You’re lucky I’m talking to you right now [laughs].
    It’s so tricky these days, you’re not expected to be an actor anymore, they want more and more and more. My bosses are terribly frustrated with my ‘under the radar’ mindset but you know what, I didn’t get into this business to sell myself, simple as that.
    I like my little life and that’s what keeps me sane and I have a high value on that. My job is my job and I’m happy for that to be judged because it’s in public. I say no to so much stuff and I know it upsets some people, but is what it is.
    You film mainly in Belfast but you’re based with your son in LA. How do you keep the balance? It must be tough as he’s so young.
    It’s hard but that’s the reality of it all, I have to work. He’s too young to be bouncing back and forth across the Atlantic so of course, any free moment I have, I’m straight back to LA to be with him. It’s heart-breaking to be so far away but that’s work and I have to work.
    How often do you get back?
    Every two weeks, or a week. Anytime time off, I’m racing back to me a mummy but to be a working parent is hard but to be a working mother is so tough.
    I did a little film here in the UK for six weeks last year and I brought him for that which was lovely. It was funny because every day, he would ask, where’s the sun? And you’re like, ‘it’s like that over here, get used to it.’
    Do you think you’ll ever move back to the UK?
    My heart is in LA now, it’s so healthy
    Could come back and do a soap opera here?
    [Laughs] Yea, maybe. Not Eastenders, but maybe Corrie. I’m a huge Corrie fan.
    Stepping away from action fantasy, what are you career goals?
    I so badly want to do a comedy. I want to get back where I started, to more indie movies. Things have gotten a little too big for me lately. And I miss the contemporary British dramas.
    Oh, and I’d love to do a Pedro Almodavar film, that would be a dream come true. Although I’d have to learn Spanish. That could be tricky.
    What’s next for you on the cards?
    Well I’m working on The Mortal Instruments in Canada right now, with a few of your Irish actors whom I’ve never worked with any of them before but I am so incredibly excited to have the three of them involved.
    I’ve heard fantastic word of Aidan Turner and Robert [Sheehan]’s work and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, he’s such a beautiful talent… and man, obviously, you know with that contingent on set, there’s going to be laughs, and lots of them.
    Obviously... and will you be rejoining 300 in the sequel as Gorgo? Gerard Butler isn’t coming back.
    I know which is a shame but that’s just how it goes. I’ve already filmed that and it’s only small part but it was so exciting to work with that team again.

    Another set back for Lindsay Lohan on her path to lock down rehab...

    TMZ's sources have informed us that the 26-year-old "actress" flight from Sao Paulo to NYC has been forced to make an emergency landing.

    Our sources tell us that there was no reported issue with the plane's equipment and the 35 passengers will be up in the air again shortly.

    The emergency landing was made after flight attendants feared chemical leak or possible sabatoge due to a "toxic odor" emitting near the front of the plane.

    Upon inspection once the plane landed ... the potential hazardous material turned out to be nothing but a "biohazard" left in the first class lavatory.

    While our sources cannot confirm or deny that Lindsay used the restroom during her flight the troubled star was previously accused of clogging a toilet on the Scary Movie 5 set.


    Yikes!

    Try explaining that four hour flight delay!

    I wonder if it was her or if she's taking the fall for one of the other passengers. :-X

    New York - Danai Gurira, with her dark skin and average sized body, is something of a creative tour de force. As a playwright and actress her body of work is the result of an eclectic lineage and is an investigation of the immigrant experience in America.

    She herself on the subject has already written plays such as The Convert, and even stars in Andrew Dosunmu’s forthcoming film, Mother of George.

    The daughter of Zimbabwean immigrants, Gurira is something of a cultural expat. Speaking about what it is that regularly attracts her to this subject matter Gurira notes that it is a need to understand the identity politics around her.

    “I like being a part of creating stories around the immigrant experience because that is my background,” she says.

    “And I feel like they are unique and they are not something that we regularly experience in the culture, so we need to acknowledge that and the best way to do it is through art.”


    Now, however, Gurira is taking on a challenge of a different kind.

    She is in South Africa promoting her new role as Michonne in The Walking Dead.

    As one of the lead characters in the series, she is at the front line of the TV apocalypse.

    Speaking about what it has been like to visit Mzansi, she says this is not her first trip, but she has enjoyed how well received the series has been here.

    “It’s always good to visit other countries and see what they think of the work we do. So I have really enjoyed being around South Africans and seeing how much they love the show,” she says.

    Gurira says taking the role of a sword-wielding zombie slayer was a lengthy process and not as romantic as one might assume.

    “I had been initially approached by the casting agent to audition for the part. But after I had done several auditions things went silent and I thought I didn’t get it,” she says.


    But get it she did and she has already made a name for herself as one of the most endearing characters in the series with witty one-liners and intricate fighting sequences.

    Speaking about some of the strange reactions she has got since taking the role, Gurira notes that she has been surprised by the fact that women find Michonne to be an empowering character.

    “Even as I am playing the role I thought a lot of people would hate this character,” she notes.

    “But I have been pleasantly surprised to find that a lot of women understand Michonne and that she is a very guarded person. And they relate to that, so that has been refreshing.”


    It hasn’t all been a walk in the park, however. Gurira has been subjected to a strict training regimen and has even helped choreograph some of her own scenes for the series, something which she says has been a learning experience for her as an actress and as a person.

    “It’s hard, especially with the acting and then the physical aspects of the role,” she says. “I have had to work with two trainers and have had to learn to handle the weapons I use correctly ”

    Gurira says what has also been interesting for her is knowing that she is able to adapt herself to stage, TV and film, something which she feels adds a lot of value to her repertoire as an actress.

    “TV is definitely more demanding, but I think each of them has their discipline and I have to give my all to each one. So it’s important to be versatile and take things that interest and challenge you,” she says.

    Among her plans Gurira says she is looking forward to the theatrical release of Mother of George and seeing public reaction to the film as well as working on her own TV series. “It’s been a really exciting to work with Andrew Dosunmu on Mother of George because he has such a strong directorial vision,” she says. “I have also been approached to write a TV series but am still thinking about that and hoping to get it together soon.”

    Flat3 Webseries follows three girls – Lee, Jessica and Perlina on the rollercoaster that is life. These ladies describe themselves as “sometimes smart, often silly, a little rude, and a lot awkward.”

    You know this kiwi comedy is going to be great! Starring the new 'Go Girl' JJ Fong and it is co-written and directed by Roseanne Liang who also directed NZ film 'My Wedding and Other Secrets'.

    Check out the website to meet the team, read the blog, and catch up on the episodes Season 1 of the homegrown web series.


    What gave you the idea for your Flat3 Web Series?
    Roseanne Liang: I’ve been watching UK and American comedy for a while now and coveting it. HBO’s Girls was going big and I was falling in love with the gleeful abandon of Louis CK’s Louie, and I’d have a lot of discussions with people in this industry about why NZ was too small to make independent comedy like that - our niches weren’t big enough. It was frustrating. Then I went to the Big Screen Symposium in Auckland where a speaker called Ted Hope said that, contrary to the hand-wringing that industry types were doing about piracy and free online content, the internet was an opportunity for ‘super-niches’ - content makers around the world could reach all the diverse and specific audiences around the world, and vice versa. Then JJ sent me an email saying something like - “We’re thinking of doing a webseries with Perlina and Ally. We’ll run it like the 48hours film competition and have fun”. And I thought - heck yeah!

    Perlina Lau: For Jess, Ally and I it was a fun project and a chance to work together and do some comedy. We all love it and watch ‘New Girl’, ‘Girls’ so drew inspiration from those but put our own spin and experiences into it instead. It was really a case of sitting around one day and just decided to do it - right before we sought the help from Roseanne. It was like “Shall we make a Webseries?” - “Yeh! Cool. Sweeet!”

    What is involved in making your own web series?
    Roseanne Liang: We couldn’t pay anyone, so we shot weekends. After a full week of ‘normal’ work, we would go home - JJ would bake and Hweiling the production manager would go shopping, I would do shot lists and print out the paperwork for the shoot, all the actors would learn lines (at the beginning, Ally was in the midst of her Optometry exams, and then once she’d finished those, she’d be out procuring props for us; Perlina was working night shifts and then we’d start the working weekend. We’d be shooting at the flat and I’d stop and say - “Wait.. what’s that noise?”. And JJ would yell - ‘Sorry! Just cooking lunch!’. It was madness, but I have to say I loved it. I was tired to my bones, but I felt alive. [Laughs]

    What was it like working on NZ film 'My Wedding and Other Secrets'?
    Roseanne Liang: I know this is going to sound cheese-tastic, but it was a dream come true. Seriously. OK, so at the time it was this intense cauldron of emotions, a potent mixture of stress and exhilaration - the feeling that ‘This is my dream job, this is what I was meant to do’, but also huge self doubt and self-imposed pressures, like ‘I’m a fraud, they can’t see it but I don’t know what I’m doing, I better not screw up this opportunity or else I’ll never get another one”. This is pretty common I’ve heard. When I look back now though, I’m just thankful for everything - all the amazing people I worked with and got to know, and the kindness and generosity and soul that remains a hallmark of our local screen industry.

    JJ, you are one of the newbies on Go Girls in the newest season - how did you land that role?
    I auditioned for the role like everyone else, and after about 4 callbacks later, my agent called me to let me know I had landed the role! It was very exciting.

    Did you have a favourite day of filming?
    Ally Xue: The title sequence. All I had to do was run, then pant excessively like a broadway star after a big number.

    Perlina Lau: I think doing the scene with Nic Sampson in the foodcourt was my fave. Did it pretty quickly but we just improvised most of it so I don’t even know how they cut it to make it look consistent!! Genius editors. Also my dance with Katrina for our band Katrina/Perlina. Super sisters in the super city.

    Do you have any passions outside of acting?
    Ally Xue: Roseanne is a great baker...I assume her cookies taste so good because it’s made with passion and love. [Laughs] I nominate her to enter ‘NZ’s Hottest Homebaker’. Those reality cooking shows are all the rage.

    What has been the biggest challenge?
    Ally Xue: We had our hopes up when we applied for NZOA funding for Season one. The NZOA brief was to fund small, unique, digital projects. And we thought - Hey, we’re female. We’re minority. We’re making comedy. We’re online. We gonna get it fo’sho! Hence, the disappointment of not getting it, broke our spirits a little. Our vision of a slick, well polished product was now out of reach - but we were wrong. The generosity of our friends came to the rescue! Another challenge was crossing over that threshold and putting our plans into action. So often people think to themselves, ‘Hey, that would be a great idea’, but never do it. We didn’t want to be one of them. We also didn’t want someone else making a product like ‘Flat3’ and beat us to it. [Laughs]

    Perlina Lau: Agreed - we all did this on the side of our other jobs so getting everything together and being as organised as possible was quite a challenge! Amazing and very fun but pretty hard work when we were covering all the roles between the 5 of us! (Including Roseanne and Hweiling)

    Who are your role models?
    JJ: As cheesy as it may sound, my dad is my biggest role model. He has owned his own business for nearly his entire life and never had a choice in his career path like I have had, so he’s done extremely well for himself and the family and I guess I wanna do the same in what I’ve chosen. He’s taught himself to be business savvy, dedicated and hardworking, sometimes its not all about talent but about how hard you work for something your passionate about.

    Perlina Lau: Probably my family and friends. (waw waw - boring answer) Simply because they’re all super hard working and talented so they set a pretty good example! And of course, Leslie Knope.

    What's the best piece of advice you have been given? Personally? Professionally?
    Ally Xue: A director once told me ‘Don’t quit your day job!' [Laughs] He didn’t mean it in a nasty way. He just gave me a dose of reality - which is the NZ screen industry is small. It is tough. Not everyone can survive life as a full time actor. Personal advice...um, don’t slouch (I still do, it’s my default position).

    What's coming up next for you?
    JJ: I think we would all love to aim to making a season two of Flat3, we are just in talks about it and how to go about funding and finding the right producer to come on board.

    Perlina Lau: Definitely a second season if we can wrangle some dollars. It would be great to work with everyone again and we have lots of ideas!!

    It reminds me of Awkward Black Girl in a way. I thought the first episode was slow, but I loved the episodes after it. Giggling at the last ep. Plus it's nice to see something pretty good featuring WoC.

    A pair of lucite heels have filed the necessary paperwork to bring about a defamation case against 18 year old singer/actress/reality star/46 year old Courtney Stodden. The shoes, who go by the name "Baby Phat", filed the suit in a Tampa Bay area courtroom this morning. Claiming that Ms. Stodden, who is married to Lost-actor Doug Hutchinson, a man thrice her age who was born in a lab after an intern accidentally put a signed headshot of Corey Haim and a Glad Scent & Fresh candle into a re-animator, has often been seen in and around the Los Angeles area donning shoes that bare a starting resemblance to her accuser.

    Though lucite heels have been working professionally in adult films and strip clubs but Phat claims that since Stodden has been seen in the heels they are now viewed as "trashy" and that wearers have potential "daddy issues."

    This is not the first time lucite heels have had a legal brush with a celebrity. The shoes have previously been involved in public rows with Shauna Sands and Dame Judi Dench, accusing both of being "swagger jaggers." Interestingly, it was the latter of which that was the impetus for the similarly titled Cher Lloyd song.

    Stodden released a statement this afternoon which said simply, "Don't put it on me, girl. Don't put in on me, girl, no. Don't put it on me, girl. D-d-d-d-d-don't."

    The case is expected to go to trial with Stodden facing up to 3 hours in jail. The suit will be seen by Judge Judith Sheindlin never because it is not "rill."

    SOURCE

    UPDATE: In a shocking twist, Ms. Stodden has filed a countersuit claiming she has been bullied so incessantly by lucite heels that she now has corns. She also noted in her statement that shoes are not even "rill" any way and according to her legal representation, Gloria Allred and Saul from Breaking Bad.

    Opening herself up for the world has become second nature to Vicki, the reigning queen of The Real Housewives of Orange County, which begins its eighth season today. Vicki has been captured by cameras since 2006, back when Anna Nicole Smith was still alive and tweeting was still for the birds.

    Why has she continued to allow cameras to document her life? “I have a sense of responsibility,” she said. “I would've been (expletive) at myself if I backed out of season five or six and saw the success of the franchise keep going. There's nothing I can't handle. I just have to figure out a way not to crumble when times get tough.”

    Creator Scott Donlop remembers her apprehension about joining the show. Nobody had an inkling The Real Housewives, marketed as a reality Desperate Housewives would last for eight seasons, let alone ignite a cultural phenomenon.

    “I remember sitting in Vicki's dining room with her then-husband Donn and her asking me, ‘Why would you put me on a television show?” Donlop said. Gunvalson isn't sure if the network will invite her back to yelp her signature "WOO HOO!" for a ninth season.

    "There will be a day when the curtains close or Bravo tells me they're going with a younger crowd or that I don't have a story anymore," she says. "I'll never not have a story. I'm Vicki Gunvalson. I'm not boring. There's going to be a story. The question is does Bravo want it?"

    Later this year, it will reach a milestone: its 100th episode. Bravo is planning a two-hour special that will pull back the curtain on the series and revisit past cast members.

    We’d like to make a request of the writers of Game of Thrones for their third season: Please write a sex scene for Jon Snow! In the past two seasons, the virgin bastard son of Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell, has been exiled and kidnapped, and he could really use a break. Actor Kit Harington, who’s just as good a guy as his character is, has better luck in the love department, however. Listen in as we ask him about it.

    Glamour: You look like you were having fun in our shoot. If you could create the perfect night out, how would it go?
    Kit Harington: You don’t want to seem too eager, too romantic—otherwise, it just looks a bit tryhard. But I do think a first date should be intimate. So I’d choose a nice dinner somewhere cozy, not too crowded, with good wine.

    Glamour: What’s the worst type of food you’ve ever had on a date?
    KH: I chose a really bad restaurant once. It was masquerading as good French cuisine, and it was dreadful. But I think as long as you acknowledge that you know it’s bad, then it’s all good.

    Glamour: What are the parallels between you and your character?
    KH: We’re both anxious people. Jon worries a lot, and he’s always concerned about the future.

    Glamour: What about him is least like you?
    KH: He’s a real warrior. He can kill people. I’m not as adept with the sword in real life.

    Glamour: On Game of Thrones you wear linebackerlike furs. Does it take you long to get ready?
    KH: A good 45 minutes. Basically, you’re tied into this costume. I don’t drink too much water!

    Glamour: So Jon is now about to get some action, and we can’t wait to see how his tumultuous relationship with Ygritte [played by Rose Leslie] turns out. If they were a real-life couple in modern day, what do you think they’d do differently in their relationship?
    KH: [Laughs.] I think they’d be exactly the same. She’d still be taking the piss out of Jon, and Jon would still be getting angry about it. And secretly quite enjoying it.

    Glamour: Is there anything that a woman can do on a date that will seal the deal for a second one?
    KH: She’s got to be funny. I like a girl who does not take me seriously, you know? It’s important to be able to laugh at each other. And I like a girl who eats. I much prefer that she order the burger.


    Haus Ontd's fave bloated emo prince. BOW IMO.
