Mia Wasikowska arrives in style to the premiere of her film Stoker during the 2013 Sydney Film Festival held at the State Theatre on Friday (June 7) in Sydney, Australia.
The 23-year-old actress was joined at the event by the film’s director Park Chan-Wook.
It was just announced that Mia may replace Emma Stone in the upcoming film Crimson Peak after she had to drop out due to a busy schedule.

British supermodel Naomi Campbell has been ordered to stand trial in Italy over her alleged attack on a photographer in 2009.
Snapper Gaetano di Giovanni claims his face was scratched and bruised after Campbell reportedly slapped him and hit him with her handbag while she was holidaying with her then-boyfriend Vladislav Doronin on the island of Lipari.
Campbell has vehemently denied the allegations and insists di Giovanni was harassing her, however, prosecutor Francesco Massara is now taking the case to court and the fashion icon must appear before judges on December 4, according to the Ansa news agency.
A spokesman for the model says, "Three years ago Ms Campbell was the victim of paparazzi harassment in Italy. The photographer has claimed to have been attacked by Ms Campbell, a claim our client has categorically denied and her team is confident to prove this in court later this year."
Campbell is notorious for her short temper - she was sentenced to anger management classes after infamously striking an assistant with her cell phone in 1998, and again in 2007 after hurling her mobile at a housekeeper in New York. She also admitted to attacking police after they were called to remove her from a plane following an incident over lost baggage at London's Heathrow Airport in 2008.
Amanda Bynes has turned down a job offer from Playboy, but it's probably not the kind of job you were thinking.
First, Playboy Radio offered Bynes a guest co-host spot via Twitter Monday. Then on Tuesday TMZ revealed Playboy doesn't only want Bynes for a one-time job; they want to secure her for a full-time spot.
The R-rated program allegedly submitted an offer to the former actress to host her own daily, hour-long radio show. Right now it is only supposed to be a one-week trial, but if she does well the company is willing to extend it to a full year (with a driver and a producer included).
Alas, the 27-year-old later rejected Playboy's proposal because she plans to record an album (of course)."I want to [do the show]. But I can’t because I’m recording an album!" she told TMZ. "I’ll go on their show for an interview when I’m promoting my album."
A representative for Playboy was not immediately available for comment.
The offer might be unexpected, but Bynes does have some experience as a headliner. She starred in Nickelodeon's "The Amanda Show" and had main roles in "Figure It Out" and "All That." However, her last job was back in 2010 playing the uber-religious Marianne Bryant in "Easy A." Last year, Bynes had plans to become a fashion designer and launch her career in New York.
That certainly didn't pan out. Instead, the troubled starlet's time in NYC has included her getting kicked out of gyms, arrested, sent for a psychological evaluation and allegedly evicted from her midtown apartment.
We caught up with the busy actor to find out about how he prepared for his comedic turn on the big screen and whyTeen Wolffans are thebestfans.
Between Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, it must have been so much fun shooting with the cast.
Oh, it was like summer camp. We shot for two and a half months, pretty long for a comedy. It allowed us to really take our time, really get to know our characters, and really get to know one another.
In the film you're an intern at Google. Did you shoot at Google HQ in San Francisco?
Most of the shooting actually was done at our recreated Google at Georgia Tech. It was insanely impressive because Google is not an easy place to recreate. It's kind of insane. And then we got to do two weeks at the real Google, and that was so cool. Seeing the real Google and talking to the real Googlers—it was just so fascinating. The whole world that they live in is so different, and it's their workplace. It's like a playground.
Were you ever an intern yourself?
No, never! I've been acting since I was 18. I'm kind of just getting to the age now where I'd be going for internships. So yeah, I kind of missed out on that whole little thing. But my sister is an intern, actually, which is really funny. All of my friends were applying for these internships last summer, and I was filming a movie calledThe Internship. A bunch of them called me to joke, saying, "Hey, congratulations, I heard you got that internship."
Did you do any research for your role?
Yeah, I spoke to the Googlers while I was there. They had Googlers volunteering for background throughout the day, so if you were sitting in a scene, you were sitting with a bunch of real-life Googlers. I would just pick their brains the whole time and they would do the same back to us. And a bunch of them laid out what intern week was really like. But it's not intern week, it's actually like an intern summer course, which isn't exactly how we depict it in the movie. It's crazy hearing the hoops they have to jump through. And to even build that initial resume to even be approved for an intern week, where then you're not even guaranteed a job, it's just so crazy.
What was it like working with Vince and Owen?
Oh my god, it was so cool. It was like a dream—like one of those things that you know was real so you tell yourself it was, but it almost feels like it didn't even happen. It's so crazy. It was the coolest experience ever, for all of us. I'm 21 years old. Five years ago, I was just like a normal kid in high school with my buddies going out and seeing Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn movies. Literally, nonstop quoting these guys around school and joking around all of the time. So it's just so crazy that I got to work with them. I'll always have the two different memories that I'll go back and forth between of being a kid, seeingWedding Crashersfor the first time in theaters and then now, being 21 and getting to be in their next movie together. I mean that's just the craziest thing in the world.
Was there a lot of improv on set?
So much. The scenes would change and it was always on the fly. We would always be riffing. Sometimes Vince would want to go off on something and he would. He would always allow anybody to throw in anything they wanted—he was so game for it. That's what's so fun about working with those guys.
Did you have a secret backstory for your character?
I had this whole kind of background thing: First of all, he has a British dad. I don't know why I thought that. Maybe because his last name is Twombly, so I thought that was an English sort of thing. And also because of his sort of his cynical, sarcastic view on things. He's kind of like an English person without being an English person.
What do you like to do on your days off?
Sleep. I always like to go see my parents when I can. They're in LA.Teen Wolfshoots there, so whenever I get a day off I like to go have dinner with them or watchWalking Deador hang out with my girlfriend. Just throw in some normalcy.
Which do you prefer: TV or film?
You learn such different things from both of them. On the one hand it's good to kind of practice with television and be able to go fast. That's good to learn as an actor, I think, because on most of the projects you do, you're most likely not going to have the luxury that $100 million movies have. So I think it is good to learn and work in that environment. With TV, you just have to finish the days and get the episodes out. And it's always going to be an impossible schedule. That's the funny thing with TV that not a lot of people realize.
What are theTeen Wolffans like?
They're incredible. I've never seen anything like it. They're so in love with what we do and it's a really nice feeling. As the actors, we're really focused on work, so it's always good to tap into the fan base and get those amazing responses and have them mean something to you. I just think it's so cool when I see a kid or a teenage boy or something—like I can really see myself at his age. If he comes up to me and he's in awe and just tells me how much he loves my character in the show? I just think that's so cool and it does genuinely make me feel nice. And it blows me away because I remember being a kid and feeling that way about actors. Just loving them and thinking they're great. Having them inspires me. I think it's really awesome.
Britney teased us with a new tweet posting an image of herself on the set of the Ooh La La music video saying
'Spring Breakers' actress Selena Gomez and actor David Henrie out on a lunch date at Kabuki in Hollywood, California on June 8, 2013. Could David be Selena's new love interest?
Ciara is in love and it shows on “Super Turnt Up,” a brand new song off her self-titled album, due July 9. The R&B diva sings about her boo Future and shows off her rapping skills.
“Boy your love got me super turnt up,” sings CiCi, who recently shot a video for her new single “I’m Out” with Nicki Minaj in New York.
The song premiered moments ago on Power 106. Listen to a radio rip below.

Not Another Happy Ending is a romantic comedy set in Glasgow, Scotland and starring Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, Oculus) and Stanley Weber (Borgia, Thérèse Desqueyroux), and directed by John McKay. The film's world premiere will take place in Edinburgh on 30th June, as part of the 67th Edinburgh International Film Festival.
When a struggling publisher (Stanley Weber) discovers that Jane Lockhart (Karen Gillan), his only successful author is blocked, he knows he has to unblock her or he's finished. With her newfound success, she's become too damn happy and he thinks she can't write when she's happy. The only trouble is, the worse he makes her feel, the more he realises he is in love with her...
Also features: Henry Ian Cusick, Iain de Caestecker, Freya Mavor, Amy Manson, Kate Dickie, and Gary Lewis
R&B artist Mario makes his return to the music world today with his highly anticipated single 'Somebody Else' featuring Nicki Minaj. 'Somebody Else' will be featured on the singer's upcoming 5th studio album. Production on the track comes from Polow Da Don who also did 'Crying Out For Me'.
Mario will be going out on a radio/promotional tour this week so you can expect plenty of information to be revealed on his fifth studio album. What we do know is that there will be 12 tracks on the project and he is 90% done. Interesting to see what he's worked up since his last release 'D.N.A.' in 2009.
A music video for 'Somebody Else' is already in the works and you can purchase the single itself on iTunes right now.
Chris Brown also recorded this song ... but fuck him. I like it, what do you think of it?
I love both songs, I hope she keeps working with hip hop beats, it's always so good when she does.

Breaking My Heart
Six years ago, I had a deal with Lifetime Television to develop my bestselling novel, The Dirty Girls Social Club, as a TV series. It soon became clear that the relationship wasn’t going to work, when two executives insisted that my pilot outline “wasn’t Latin enough,” because it told of middle class, educated American women who happened to be Latina.
“This reads as if it were about me and my friends,” complained one executive in disgust.
I didn’t know how to respond, so I asked her what she’d prefer.
“Why don’t we make the girls debating whether or not to date men in prison? I know that’s what Latinas talk about, just like it’s what black women talk about.”
Right. Because all middle class, college-educated professional women talk about dating prisoners.
In her dreams.
I got out of that deal because of this idiocy, and never looked back.
Fast forward to two years ago. I get a call from my agent, asking if I’m interested in writing a TV series about “Latina maids and nannies in Beverly Hills.” He said a network wanted a story about “exotic” Latina maids who knew all about their employers’ vices. I declined the offer.
Unsurprisingly, Lifetime has now come out with a show about Latina maids in Beverly Hills, called Devious Maids. It was originally in development at ABC, but that network had the good sense to pass on it after seeing the pilot.
I am not the only Latina to be annoyed by the perpetuation of stereotype in Devious Maids. Tanisha Ramirez wrote a scathing critique on the Huffington Post, only to be attacked in returnby the show’s co-producer, Eva Longoria. Cosmo for Latinas editor Michelle Herrera Mulliganresponded to Longoria by diplomatically telling her she was a big fat sellout. The Devious Maids camp responded with the weak argument that the show puts Latinas to work in an industry with embarrassingly few roles for them, and that it is based on a Telenovela and must therefore be Latino approved.
Many of my readers have asked me to opine on the matter, so here is what I think.
It is not wrong to be a maid, or even a Latina maid, but there is something very wrong with an American entertainment industry that continually tells Latinas that this is all they are or can ever be.
My grandmother was a maid in Cuba; my biological grandfather was her employer. My father, never claimed by his bio-dad, was a janitor when he first began working in the United States, as a teen immigrant. My father went on to get his PhD, sort of a real-life Good Will Hunting, and became a leading sociologist. He raised me to believe in myself and my voice; I went to Columbia, and I’m a bestselling author Tom Wolfe called one of the most important social critics of our time.
We don’t see stories about people like me or my dad. Indeed, network executives say to my face that I don’t exist. That’s the problem.
Ten years ago, Mexican American actress Lupe Ontiveros lamented to the New York Times that she had been cast as a maid 150 times in her career. The astounding number of times this one (outstanding) Latina actress has been cast as a maid destroys Longoria’s defense of Devious Maids as “Latina maids deserving to have their stories told, too.” According to academic research on Latino roles in mainstream US film and TV, the maid is pretty much the only Latina story being told, other than seductress, whore, dying immigrant and gang member.
There is more to stereotyping of Latinas than laziness or lack of information.
Longoria and others like to try to brush off criticism by telling us we’re all giving Hollywood too much credit, or that we’re overly sensitive, or, worst of all, by trying to paint critics as anti-maid elitists. The thing is, this isn’t just about maids. And it isn’t just about entertainment.
In his groundbreaking work At the University of Texas at Austin, on stereotypes of Latinos in film, professor Charles Ramirez Berg explains that Hollywood’s stereotypical “construction of Latinos in this country [is done] to justify the United States’ imperialistic goals. U.S. imperialism was based on the notion that the nation should control the entire hemisphere and was willing to fight anyone who disagreed. For centuries, the precepts underpinning the Monroe Doctrine have been used as a rationale for the U.S. interference in the internal politics of Latin America. On the whole, Hollywood endorsed North American dominance of this hemisphere, and as often as it depicted that hegemony uncritically, movies helped to perpetuate it.”
It is no mistake, and it is not mere happenstance, that Lifetime refused to allow me to make a show for them about complex, nuanced Latinas, yet greenlit a show about Latinas as sexy domestic servants. It isn’t a matter of me being too sensitive and lacking a sense of humor, and it isn’t a matter of me not liking maids. It is about the way the Latina maid stereotype beautifully cleaves to the time-honored imperialistic way this country has dealt with its Spanish-speaking neighbors in the Americas. My vision of us – as autonomous human beings – is simply too threatening to be considered realistic. How else to explain that a business supposedly built around making money continues to refuse to make money off of people like me, continues to refuse to meet our demands in its supply and demand spreadsheet?
It’s not just that Hollywood sees Latinas as one-dimensional, subservient sex objects; it is that this is how our nation has historically viewed all of the native peoples in the Americas, including the vast portions of this country that were once part of Mexico and Spain. You cannot colonize or occupy the lands of human beings you respect or view as your equal; it is better to simplify them in order to dehumanize them.
Nothing determines how people are viewed more than pop culture. The US government has spent fortunes researching film and TV as tools of propaganda, discovering, to no one’s surprise, that what people see in movies or on TV is what they believe to be true about the world. There is a reason an editor was yet again surprised this week to learn that I, an American by birth, did not live my life in Spanish. Movies and TV never show him people like me; in film and TV, women like me always have a Spanish accent. It is no coincidence, either, that the New York Daily News, when writing about my books, accused me of bringing chick lit to “the third world,” even though I write for an American audience. I am strong enough to fight this nonsense off. But what about the untold millions of women who aren’t as pugilistic as I am? Who is fighting for them? Not Longoria. Not Lifetime.
Most disappointing is how several Latino rights organizations have jumped to defend Devious Maids, because Longoria, a contributor to their bank accounts, asked them to. They have all decided that telling stories of maids who, as the network describes it, “have dreams of their own,” is somehow a step up for all of us. We’re not just maids in the background anymore, they tell us, now we get to be maids in the foreground, with dreams of our own.
That executives, actors and others continue to view the stereotypes as inevitable, that they continue to construct them subconsciously, that they accept them as fact without any justification, makes the predicament all the more overwhelming.
Longoria’s argument conflates race/ethnicity with socioeconomic status; sociology tells us quite clearly that these are not the same thing.
Yes, Devious Maids was a telenovela before Lifetime borrowed it. But in the Spanish-language version, all of the characters – the maids and their employers – were Latinos. The telenovela, approaching Latin Americans, allowed for class distinctions among Latinos, something that is utterly unthinkable in the imperialistic paradigm of the English-language side of the industry. Latinos are never nuanced human beings on the English-language side, because in order to maintain the American exceptionalist status quo race, ethnicity, and class must be simplistically conflated and assumed to be interchangeable. In truth, they are not. But that truth is a Latin American and Latino truth, and to allow us our own truth is untenable. People like Longoria choose, cynically perhaps, to make a living within these narrow confines, to justify them in every way they can, to perhaps even lend humanity and depth to the roles of maids, and you cannot blame them; they are actors, not activists. But I am a writer. I don’t interpret the stories, as an actor does, I construct them. In today’s Hollywood, my story of us, my story of me, stories of Latinas with dreams of their own who aren’t maids, or hookers, or sultry in some dominated way, remains too damn threatening.
Hollywood is still choosing to remain clueless about how to reach the 60 million Latinos in America.
Again and again in Hollywood I have heard networks invoke “telenovelas” as what they are after. “We want an English-language telenovela,” they say. But they don’t actually want a telenovela, because they don’t know what that means. Telenovelas often have powerful Latina protagonists. Class distinctions among Latinos are not only present, they are required and fuel the narrative.
Hollywood doesn’t actually want an English telenovela, because I wrote one, and it was a huge hit, yet they don’t believe that I know what Latinas want, because my story is not stereotypical and, to their eyes, therefore untrue. Devious Maids is as much about mental laziness and fear as it is about stereotypes.
I am building an empire on a new paradigm, and hope you’ll join me.
After disappointing deals I’ve had with NBC, Columbia Pictures and, of course, Lifetime, I have taken control of my book. I’m producing it as an indie film. Watch. I will prove to Hollywood that the key to reach Latinos is in ditching stereotypes. Period. It’s time for a change. New technology is quickly dismantling the omnipotence of the old paradigm, making it possible for a writer like me to reach my audience without help of a middleman studio or network. I know my audience is there, because I’ve met them. In cities all across the nation, I have heard their stories, accepted their gratitude for being the first to give them characters they could relate to.
I used to view Hollywood’s insistent imperialistic attitudes as an obstacle, but then I realized something wonderful. They weren’t an obstacle at all, but an opportunity to build our own media empire, right next door to theirs.
There goes the neighborhood.
Interestingly, my decision to eschew the US mainstream entertainment industry comes at a time that global economists are starting to announce the decline of the United States as a global power, and the rise of a Latin America independent of it — a Latin America that, as we speak, has four female presidents within it, an accomplishment this nation has yet to achieve. Not a one of these president women is…a maid.
Writing for economic thinktank Project Syndicate this week, former Israeli Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami had a piece whose headline read, simply, “Is the US Losing Latin America?”
“It is a mantra increasingly heard around the world: US power is in decline. And nowhere does this seem truer than in Latin America. No longer is the region regarded as America’s ‘backyard’; on the contrary, the continent has arguably never been so united and independent.”
The same could be said for the 60 million Latinos living in the United States. And we’re ready for our own movies now.
If you understand what I’m saying, and you want to be part of this new empire, please visit myKickstarter campaign to support my film, and tell everyone you know about it.
Alisa Valdes is a novelist of mixed Cuban, Mexican, Spanish and European descent. Her first book, “The Dirty Girls Social Club,” earned critical acclaim and became a New York Times bestseller. Her eighth book, “The Feminist and the Cowboy” was released earlier this year. She resides in New Mexico.
I like the rotoscope, but they should also release it as a drama since they have the scenes filmed anyway.
Liam Gallagher has described the music of One Direction's Harry Styles as "shit" - but said he was impressed by the boyband member's rock'n'roll lifestyle.
Speaking to the Sun, the Beady Eye frontman said: "You want your rock'n'roll stars to have a good time. When I see Harry out and about having it I think, 'Go on, lad'. The music's shit, but at least he's living it. It's equally as important as writing a good song."
Gallagher went on to add: "If you write a good song and you're just a stiff and a square then you can just fuck off in my book. At least Harry is having a good time, right?"
In this week's NME cover feature, meanwhile, Gallagher also gave his opinion on One Direction, stating: "They're just living their life. Harry Styles? Fucking good on him man. It'll end soon, won't it, and he can look back and go, yeah, I had a fucking good time. He's riding the wave, man."
In his interview with NME, the singer also revealed he is interested in reforming Oasis in 2014 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the band's debut album 'Definitely Maybe'. "There's unfinished business there," he said. "People ask would I get Oasis back together. I'd do it for nowt, but if someone's going to drop a load of fucking money, I'd do it for that too. I don't think we'd ever make another record. I doubt we'll ever get back together."
The eagle-eyed bloggers over at Hip Hop N More noticed that the Yeezus listings on two Australian retail sites contain a seemingly label-provided description that mentions some of the album’s credited guests. Those listed include the ones we’re already aware of or were suspecting (Skrillex, Travi$ Scott, Chief Keef) and some outright surprises (Tyler, the Creator). And weirdly, the blurb goes out of its way to mention just one half of Daft Punk (Thomas Bangalter).
Yeezus is the 6th studio album by Kanye West. Recorded primarily in Paris, and featuring collaborations with No I.D., RZA, Thomas Bangalter of French electronic duo Daft Punk, Skrillex, Young Chop, Chief Keef, Travis Scott, King L, Tyler, the Creator, Frank Ocean, John Legend, James Blake, and many more.
So, at this point can we conclude that anyone who said they were flying out to Paris to record some Cruel Wintersessions at the end of 2012/beginning of 2013 were unknowingly working on West’s next album?
Happy birthday Yeezus!
Tom Bachik, who is the nail stylist to many starlets including Anne Hathaway, Zooey Deschanel and Jennifer Lopez, is still busy navigating the world of nail art.
He gives some great pointers on trends and perfecting nails to Popsugar Beauty while preparing to dazzle the world at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. When he creates a must-have nail look, it is always a collaborative process with that particular celebrity.
Bachik likes to be hands on, sitting down with a celebrity client, his or her hairstylist and makeup artist. Most starlets have dreamed up a creative nail art idea already so Bachik uses that as a foundation.
He makes sure to cater to the particular occassion, whether it is a red-carpet awards ceremony or star-studded wedding. Naturally, he must also consider the client's gown and the feeling that she gets when wearing it.
At this year's Cannes Film Festival, the gowns were both classic and chic with a simplistic appeal. But every good ensemble needed an accompanying killer makeup look so Bachik has to also think about whether the celebrity is going to rock smoking eyes and muted lipstick or a clean face and dark lips.
Then, the fun begins in creating artistic and perfect nails. He can easily decorate nails to complement the gown and makeup for a matching allure or bring about a bold, contrasting flavor.
"There's no in-between," he said. "You have to be almost completely matchy or completely opposite so that the nails really pop and complete the overall look."
He added that nails are the newest fashion accessory, and people should have fun with it and make sure that it complements what they wear. You don't have to commit to any one look so try everything from the chic sophiscation of full coverage nude nails for a daytime flair to the sexy glamour of rich, deep toned talons for your nighttime bar crawl.
And if you're wondering if nail art is here to stay, the answer is yes!
However the former Peepshow star appears to have sprung back to her pre-pregnancy shape as she took in an energetic morning run in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Holly was sweating off the pounds with a smile as she bounced along the neighbourhood street amidst trees and green foliage.
Her scanty attire did little cover that hourglass form, exposing plenty of cleavage, stomach and legs. Adding a fashionable flair were Holly's turquoise-blue and pink trainers. She ran alone but had a handy iPod plugged into her ear to keep her entertained and motivated.
The new mother wore her blonde hair pulled back in a ponytail during most of her heart-pumping routine, but during her stretching portion allowed it fall out of its clasp and around her shoulders.
Holly eventually slowed down to extend those muscles in a few relaxing stretches.
The former star of The Girls Next Door - and one-time favourite gal pal of Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner - delivered a healthy daughter named Rainbow, with fiance Pasquale Rotella, on March 5.
Throughout her pregnancy Holly stuck to a healthy diet and exercise regime.
After Rainbow was born, Holly consumed 1,100 calories a day to help shed the excess 40 lbs gained during those nine months of pregnancy.
The frequent guest to nightclub openings and other Sin City events does admit to a few tricks of the trade when it comes to looking red carpet-ready.
'How do I hide my leftover preggo belly for the red carpet? Combine all my favourite slimming tips: a high waist, a flared skirt and a wide belt,' Holly has said.
She also revealed that a gym workout before a party and wearing a corset also help.
A pretty coral frock she wore to the PRiSM bash on May 31 complimented Holly's curves while disguising the bulges.
All joking aside she really does look great and she's always wanted to be a mom so I can't help but be happy for her.
The judge who made Katherine Jackson guardian for Paris Jackson has ordered an investigation into Paris' attempted suicide, to determine if her welfare has been compromised ... TMZ has learned.
Judge Mitchell Beckloff has asked an investigator in the probate court -- where the guardianship was established -- to "prepare a written report and include therein any recommendations relating to the minor child's health, education and welfare."
Judge Beckloff notes he was alerted to Paris' crisis by media reports. As you know, TMZ broke the story ... Paris is under psychiatric evaluation after cutting her arm with a meat cleaver and downing a number of Motrin, in what authorities call a suicide attempt.
It's an interesting development ... because the judge seems to be concerned about the supervision and guidance Paris is getting from the people responsible for her care.
