Ethan Hawke is broodingly handsome for this fashion feature from one of Mr. Porter‘s November 2013 issues.
Here is what the 43-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On his relationship with his wife Ryan: “My relationship with my present wife is thrilling to me and I’m committed to it. But neither she nor I know what shape the future will come in. Sexual fidelity can’t be the whole thing you hang your relationship on. If you really love somebody you want them to grow, but you don’t get to define how that happens. They do.”
On his divorce from Uma Thurman: “We tried to be as optimistic as we could be: we all want to believe in love and the possibility of love. The older you get, the more you realise how powerful love is. You understand the right ways for emotion to lead your life and the dangerous ways. I don’t regret marrying early. Gattaca was a great moment in my life and a great moment in Uma Thurman’s life and we fell madly in love and wanted to do all that.”
On the general view of monogamy: “People have such a childish view of monogamy and fidelity. ‘He’s cheated so he’s bad, she’s cheated so she’s bad’, as opposed to a recognition that our species is not monogamous. To act all indignant, that your world has been rocked because your lover wasn’t faithful to you, is a little bit like acting rocked that your hair went grey. I am [monogamous], but in Before Midnight there is the threat of sexual attraction to others and maintaining your sexual identity with your partner over a long period of time. Human beings are sexual beings.”
Their leading co-star Johnny Depp was already spotted filming scenes for action/crime film Mortdecai in London's last week. And now it was Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, and Ewan McGregor's, 42, turn to follow suit as they got to work shooting their initial scenes in a restaurant on London's South Bank on Friday.
The pair, both smartly dressed, looked to be discussing serious business when they met at a dinner table, with only a bottle of water for sustenance.
The big-screen adaptation of the popular Mortdecai book series by the late British author Kril Bonfiglioli tells the story of art dealer, Charles Mortdecai, played by Johnny Depp, who is on the search for a stolen painting rumored to contain a secret code that gains access to hidden Nazi gold.
Mortdecai sees the enigmatic actor reunite with director David Koepp some nine-years after they worked together on 2004 movie Secret Window.
The pair will no doubt be hoping the forthcoming film fares better than their previous collaboration, which made a minor impact at the box office by recouping its $40,000,000 budget, but received lukewarm responses from critics.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” might need all its power to deal with its latest foe: The Universal Society of Hinduism. Universal Society of Hinduism president Rajan Zed is calling for an apology, after last week’s episode of “S.H.I.E.L.D.” insinuated that the Hindu god Vishnu could be an alien.
Zed also called upon the network and the makers of the show to post information about Vishnu and Hinduism on their websites, presumably to make up for the misinformation created by the reference on the TV show.
“Rajan Zed stated that Hindus were for free speech as much as anybody else if not more,” a statement from the Society said. “But faith was something sacred and attempts at debasing it hurt the adherents. Television and Hollywood should be more conscious while handling faith related subjects, as television and cinema were very mighty mediums and these could create stereotypes in the minds of some audiences.”
“Hinduism had about one billion adherents and offered a rich philosophical thought and it should not be taken lightly. Symbols of any faith, larger or smaller, should not be mishandled,” Zed said.
The reference was made by the “S.H.I.E.L.D.” character Skye, who’s portrayed by Chloe Bennet. As a character, Vishnu has appeared in the comic book “The Mighty Thor.” A spokesperson for ABC was unavailable for comment.
Brace yourselves, "Lord Of The Rings" fans ... this one's a doozy.
Arwen, Gandalf and Legolas reunited for a photo op in NYC on Nov. 24 at the opening night bash for Broadway productions of "No Man's Land" and "Waiting for Godot" at Bryant Park Grill. That's right -- Liv Tyler, Ian McKellen and Orlando Bloom posed together for some pictures, which have completely made our week.
Tyler and Bloom supported McKellen as he stars in the two plays in repertory at the Cort Theatre with Patrick Stewart, Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley. Bloom is also a Broadway man at the moment, currently appearing in "Romeo and Juliet."
And, of course, let's not forget that McKellen and Bloom will be seen on the big screen together once again in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," which hits theaters Dec. 13.
... [E]ye-brow raising is the fact Universal has pushed Legendary's "The Seventh Son" to Feb. 6, 2015. The fantasy adventure "Son" stars Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes and Julianne Moore. It was already featured on a panel at last year's Comic-Con and will now be released over seven months after the next Comic-Con. It has had posters and a complete trailer already in theaters. Warner Bros. had originally scheduled it for release in Oct. of this year and then pushed to Jan. 2014. It now is hitting theaters 16 months after its first "real" release date (it was dated on Feb. 22, 2013 at one point, but that was not realistic). Does this raise red flags about the movie itself.? You bet it does.

what horror movies are you looking forward to, ONTD? for me, The Town That Dreaded Sundown.
The new year is upon us, which also means that some of our favorite shows are returning with brand new seasons. Here are the top 6 shows whose comeback we are most excited about.
1. Orphan Black
Award-winning actress Tatiana Maslany plays Sarah Manning, a woman who returns home only to discover that she has several clones and that her life is in danger. The first season of this BBC America science fiction series was pretty fantastic, with a gripping plot, various twists and turns, and plenty of action-packed moments.Orphan Black relies heavily on Maslany’s acting abilities, for her to play several different characters who all look like her but speak differently, carry themselves differently, and have completely different personalities. But, honestly, she is so talented at what she does and the biggest snub of award season was that she wasn’t even nominated for an Emmy. If you haven’t caught up on Orphan Black yet, there’s still time. Marathon the first season (10 episodes) before the season 2 premiere on April 19, 2014.
2. My Mad Fat Diary
Set in ’90s England, My Mad Fat Diary centers on a 16-year-old girl named Rae (Sharon Rooney) who has recently been released from a psychiatric hospital after attempting to take her own life. While struggling with mental health and body image issues – issues that she attempts to keep a secret – Rae makes a whole new group of friends: Archie, the boyish musician keeping a secret of his own, Finn, the brooding bad boy who Rae initially dislikes, Chop, the clownish party animal, and Izzie, the sweet yet ditzy redhead. There’s also Chloe, Rae’s childhood BFF, who’s grown into more of a bitchy frenemy. It’s Rae’s complexities, her honest diary entries, and her relationship with her friends and family that makes My Mad Fat Diary such a must-see.
The criminally underrated Hannibal, the brainchild of Pushing Daisies’ Bryan Fuller, is loosely based on Red Dragon, the first book in author Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter series. If you’re at all familiar with the books or movies, then you know that Dr. Hannibal Lecter – first portrayed by Brian Cox in the 1986 movie Manhunter – is a cannibalistic serial killer who aids the police both before and after his inevitable incarceration. In the TV series, Hannibal is played by Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen. Hugh Dancy plays FBI profiler Will Graham, a very troubled character who – thanks to Hannibal – ends up locked away in a mental hospital at the end of the first season.

Sharon Osbourne is the latest celeb to be appear on “The Graham Norton Show,” where “The Talk” co-host admitted she had her “vagina tightened.”
Yes, you read that correctly.
Osbourne was sitting alongside fellow guest Colin Farrell when she was asked about the most plastic surgery painful procedure she’s ever had, and she quickly answered, “Having my vagina tightened.”
“It was the worst. It was just excruciating,” she exclaimed.
Farrell appeared both stunned and amused, and wanted to know what such a surgery would entail.
Osbourne promised to “show” him later, and went on to discuss her relationship with husband Ozzy, and why appearing on reality TV with her family was “the biggest mistake” she ever made.
“[Ozzy and I] both worked to continue a lifestyle we had become accustomed to and we had to travel so my kids spent quite a time away from us and you can never get that time back,” she explained.
Ever considered having your vagina tightened ONTD?
Watch out Emmys ... the master of movie awards Harvey Weinstein is heading to TV. Harvey, 61, and his brother Bob are launching a series of shows - and aim to make their TV arm just as powerful as their theatrical division.
The Weinstein Company, the firm the brothers set up eight years ago, is planning a 10-episode detective drama set in ancient Egypt called Book of the Dead, alongside 10 Commandments. The Weinsteins are already planning to hire A-list directors as far ranging as Lee Daniels, who recently helmed The Butler for The Weinstein Company, Madonna, Wes Craven and Ryan Cooglar, to direct episodes.
'Harvey is looking more and more at TV as a significant part of the future of the company and is hoping to replicate his film success in the TV world.' Last week, Harvey spoke out about his plans, and told the New York Times: 'The way to add stability to the company is to be in the television business,' adding his goal was to create a television operation “as powerful as the theatrical division.”
Asked whether some of his past and present Oscar contenders might lead to future television shows, Harvey said he saw potential, for instance, in “Silver Linings Playbook,” a comedy-drama which received eight Oscar nominations - and a best actress Oscar for Jennifer Lawrence.
Meanwhile, Bob Weinstein said he was developing projects in tune with Dimension brand, alongside shows based on movies he has overseen. He's now developing a pilot based on the 'Scream' series for MTV and proposed a series based on Stephen King's The Mist.
Mr. Weinstein said he was also hoping to quickly follow the August release of the film “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, with a “Sin City” television series from the same directors.
Other planned shows from The Weinstein Company are “Marco Polo,” a martial arts-filled adventure series from the executive producer John Fusco for Netflix; “War and Peace,” a 14-episode retelling of Tolstoy’s Napoleonic war novel in association with the BBC; “Stan and Ollie,” about the later days of the Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy comedy team, also for the BBC, and possible for sale in the States and an “Entourage”-like comic series, based loosely on the adventures of the celebrity chef Michael Chiarello.
The company has also acquired rights to “Peaky Blinders,” a British crime series, and “Gomorrah,” an Italian mob drama, both of which are being offered for sale in the United States, the New York Times reported.
Those scripted shows join reality shows including “Concrete Kings,” about the construction business, and “Rodeo Girls,” about female rodeo competitors, both for A&E; and “Under the Gunn” a spinoff of the company’s continuing “Project Runway” series on Lifetime
With Harvey's flare for showmanship and promotion, TV chiefs think the Weinstein Company's projects could be a success. Richard Plepler, chief executive of HBO, told the New York Times: 'Would I be surprised in the coming years if Harvey brought something to us that makes sense for HBO? Not in the least.'
The TV push is backed by money from a freshly negotiated $370 million in available lending from an arrangement with Union Bank. About $150 million of that is earmarked for television, The Weinstein Company's President David Glasser said.
Meanwhile, 10 Commandments, a co-production between The Weinstein Company and WGN is slated to start shooting in March. It's the most high profile production about Moses since the famous 1956 Cecil B.DeMille movie The Ten Commandments, starring Charlton Heston.
That film remains one of the most popular ever made. Adjusted for inflation, it is the seventh highest grossing film of all time - the 1939 epic Gone With The Wind still tops the charts.
The series follows a recent trend in faith based television shows and films. The History Channel's mini series The Bible was a blockbuster hit earlier this year, with the first episode attracting 13.1 million viewers in March - the highest television cable audience in 2013 so far. A sequel is reportedly in production at NBC, according to Deadline.
Other faith-based projects currently in production include Exodus, the Ridley Scott movie which will see Christian Bale play Moses alongside Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver. Darren Aronofsky's epic film Noah, starring Russell Crowe in the title role, will also hit theaters next year.
Lady Gaga took to Sirius XM recently to do Track-By-Track overview of her latest album ARTPOP. She guides the listeners through the album, explaining the meanings and inspirations behind every track and finishes off explaining the interconnected concept of the album: every track on ARTPOP represents one adrenaline rush (adrenaline of sex, adrenaline of art, adrenaline of fashion, adrenaline of drugs, etc.)
Carrie Underwood has come under fire on social media for her upcoming turn as 'Maria' in THE SOUND OF MUSIC LIVE on NBC.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly for the magazine's "Entertainers of the Year" issue, Underwood said: "I get hate Tweets and stuff like, 'You're not Julie Andrews!' I know I'm not Julie. Nobody is and I would never pretend that I was ... I know my place."
But BroadwayWorld reported earlier this month that Andrews herself supports Underwood in the role.
"Fifty years later, it's time somebody had another crack at it. I had the best time of my life doing it, and it did wonderful things for me. I think it's great that it's being done again, but doing it live must be so daunting for Carrie," Andrews said. "It's a lovely piece, and I do hope it works for Carrie, because she's lovely and I'm a fan. I wish her well."
Did you all watch the Behind the Scenes special?? The Sound of Music Live! airs Thursday, December 5 at 8pm on NBC!!!
Totally tubular dude! The One Direction singer was out in London on Nov. 30, rocking a hilarious outfit with his good friends, Nick Grimshaw and Gillian Orr. Is this even better than his Miley Cyrus costume?
Another day of hilarious dress-up for Harry Styles. The singer from One Directionappeared to be attending some sort of costume party on Nov. 30, because he was spotted in a ridiculous outfit and a hilarious wig to match his friends, Nick Grimshaw and Gillian Orr.
You know isht is bad when your own lawyer sues you.
According to TMZ:
Lil Mama — the rapper behind the song “Lip Gloss” — just got destroyed in court … after pulling one of the dumbest moves ever … TMZ has learned.
Mama was sued by her lawyer — a guy who specializes in intellectual property — who claims he busted his butt to protect her rights to the name “Lil Mama.” Kind of an important guy in her life.
Problem is, the lawyer claims he worked for Mama until 2011 … but she stopped paying him in 2008. So, he did what lawyers do … he took her [redacted] to court.
In the end, the rapper (who also starred as Left Eye in the recent TLC movie on VH1 — suffered an embarrassing and expensive defeat and was ordered to pony up roughly $18k for the bill, interest and other fees.
Lil Mama has to handle business better than that if she wants to take over this entertainment industry.

Irvine Welsh's grimy novel of addiction Trainspotting has emerged as the public's favourite Scottish novel of the past 50 years in a poll which was run by Scottish Book Trust.
The book featuring heroin addict Mark Renton and a cast of transgressive characters including con artist Sick Boy and sociopath Begbie, won the most votes from a total of 8,800 cast by Scottish readers from around the world.
Alasdair Gray's Lanark, combining depictions of real and dystopian fantasy Glasgow was voted as second favourite. Ian Rankin's eighth novel featuring his much-loved Inspector Rebus, Black and Blue, was third favourite.
Readers voted for their favourites from a suggested shortlist of 50 novels by Scottish writers which was put together by literary critic Stuart Kelly and Scottish Book Trust.
The shortlist was made up of William Dalrymple, David Greig, Robert Galbraith, and McIlvanney, with the winner determined by a public vote.
Galbraith – real name JK Rowling – was omitted from the Scottish Book Trust list of 50 best Scottish novels because her books for adults were deemed not good enough to make the cut.
The 5 favourite Scottish novels
1 Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh
2 Lanark by Alasdair Gray
3 Black and Blue by Ian Rankin
4 The Bridge by Iain Banks
5 One Fine Day in the Middle of the Night by Christopher Brookmyre
Brody’s on a potential suicide mission. Carrie’s pregnant and off her meds. Saul is, once again, impressing us with his Langley warrior’s code of honor. Showtime’s Homeland is having its most-watched season yet and heating up for its home stretch, which will spend the bulk of its time following Brody’s assassination attempt on a high-ranking government official in Iran. We talked to showrunner Alex Gansa after Sunday’s riveting ninth episode that included Brody (Damian Lewis) coming off heroin, reuniting with Carrie (Claire Danes) and departing on his dangerous mission. Will Brody ever return?
Entertainment Weekly: That might have been the best episode of the season. Usually I like the episodes that are more story driven, but even though not a lot actually happened in terms of action I was pretty riveted.
Gansa: I’m glad you thought so. It’s a relief. The director, Jeffrey Reiner, did a fantastic job.
We’ve seen a lot of withdrawal scenes before. Can you talk about what you wanted to do differently with Brody?
Gansa: We looked at Gene Hackman’s performance in the second French Connection movie, which was incredible and somehow very personal — that’s what we wanted Brody to go through. Something that felt intimate and personal and not the same old thing. I know Damian did a tremendous amount of research and talked to junkies about what withdrawal is like. I think we do it in a very impressionistic way without spending too much time on it. And we introduced this drug ibogaine that speeds the process up that we learned about in our research.
I wasn’t sure if that was a real thing or an invention to take the scene to the next level.
Gansa: It’s totally a real thing.
Clearly you don’t ever want to go to CIA rehab.
Gansa: But we got to bring in Nazir and Tom Walker again. We’re trying to bring some of these characters full circle and back into Brody’s consciousness and give the audience a sense of what this character has been through and what Saul is asking him to do again.
What was it like shooting the withdrawal scenes with Damian?
Gansa: They were horrific to shoot. It was an extreme physical journey for him to go through. We shot a lot of raw footage. We used about 20 percent of it. Damian gave us a lot of raw material to work with.
You have a montage in there as he gets his strength back. I don’t know if you have done one before, but it was effective.
Gansa: We initially as a joke set it to the Rocky theme. I believe it’s our third montage we’ve had … but this is really the first [protracted] montage we’ve done and we anguished over it a little bit.
I also liked the special-ops team, how they handled Brody and pushed back at Saul. How much more will we get to see of them?
Gansa: You’re going to see quite a bit of them in episode 10. I don’t know if you noticed, but they’re all Arab-Americans.
I noticed, but wasn’t sure what to make of it.
Gansa: You will learn what to make of it in the next episode.
We also had some great moments with Saul (Mandy Patinkin). As much as we want to see him nail Lockhart (Tracy Letts), he refuses to embarrass his wife.
Gansa: That’s one of my favorite scenes in episode nine. It accomplishes so much because it does speak to Saul’s humanity and to his deep loyalty to his wife and his loyalty to the CIA and where he puts his values — rather than stay on as director himself, he realizes how much damage outing Lockhart would do the agency. If you watch the scene, Lockhart clocks that. He’s looking at Saul and learning a lesson about putting the institution first.
Lockhart’s been so consistently antagonistic, I haven’t gotten the impression he’s capable of learning anything.
Gansa: Right, but I think that’s the first moment where you see it. He realizes, “This is a formidable person sitting in front of me.”
So Iran: How much of the rest of the season will be spent over there vs. over here?
Gansa: That’s the course the next three episodes will follow. Following that mission is where we take our main characters through the [end of the season]. The last three episodes, at least three quarters of them are set in the Middle East.
Brody was concerned about the extraction plan and whether there is one during the briefing. Should we be concerned about that too?
Gansa: That’s the big concern. What Brody is going into is a dangerous and might be legitimately considered a suicide mission. It kind of reminds me of Nazir’s appearance in America last season. People took great issue with how could Nazir get into the country, but what they didn’t realize was Nazir was on a suicide mission, so he could take every possible risk because he knew he didn’t have to get him out. In a way, Brody entering Iran has that same flavor — is he ever going to get out of there, and can the CIA really be expected to extract him if he kills Akbari.
I read that Showtime forbid you from killing off Brody last season. Is that true? And if it is true, does that still apply?
Gansa: First of all, that is not true. Showtime was very vocal about the desire to keep Brody alive, but they were completely open to the idea that Brody could die last year, could die this year, could die next year. It’s really about when the time is right and when that story’s shelf life has expired.
Though when the network is telling you “we really want this to continue,” it must put some pressure on you as somebody who would like to continue being the showrunner.
Gansa: It does. But I have to say there is a tremendous amount of goodwill between Showtime and the writing staff of the show. The dialog has been incredibly productive over the years. Though we have to respect Showtime’s wishes, they never would have forced us to do something we didn’t think was right. And frankly, I’m happy they convinced us not to kill Brody in the first or second season. Because we get to play out what happens this year. I think it’s going to be incredibly exciting.
Is Jessica out of the picture?
Gansa: I will let everybody wait with baited breath for the Brody family to re-appear.
We’ve talked before about the Dana (Morgan Saylor) online reactions before. Even if somebody doesn’t like her character, I don’t see how they couldn’t be moved by that scene with her and Brody.
Gansa: Well, here’s the thing: That scene between Brody and his daughter was a scene we knew was coming and were preparing for. And if you didn’t understand what Dana had gone through after his escape from America, if you didn’t see the pain and degradation she experienced, that scene wouldn’t have been as effective. Which is not to say that we maybe played too much Dana. But you had to play something so you could see the pain she went through — the divorce she articulated with her family, and her complete despair when her love affair ended badly. Hopefully when people watch that scene and are moved by that scene they can look back and excuse where we took Dana for the first four, five episodes.
One thing viewers got irked by a couple episodes back is Carrie jeopardizing a surveillance operation to try and clear Brody’s name. Would Carrie really be placing her own needs ahead of the operation when she’s so consistently placed the operation ahead of her own needs this season?
Gansa: It’s a legitimate point. You have to either buy Carrie’s impulsiveness in that moment or not. Clearly we believed that in the course of the pregnancy, she’s starting to face the fact that she’s carrying Brody’s child and wants him to be exonerated. In that moment, it outweighed her operational imperative. That’s how we played the story. One point that’s been missed by a lot of people is that Carrie has been tremendously successful as an intelligence operative this season. She has been. What she put herself through, how she lured Javadi, what she did was heroic. She has been on-point in a way we didn’t really see in the first two seasons … We’ve taken a little critical heat [this season], but I think we’re still building an audience and that is gratifying.
So by that are we to assume she’s keeping the baby? One critic pointed out Carrie seems like the type of person who’s such a single-minded careerist that she would, frankly, get an abortion.
Gansa: I welcome that kind of speculation about Carrie’s character. One of the fascinating things that we’ve found in discussing Carrie’s pregnancy is that she didn’t really believe it until she was 14 weeks pregnant, at which point things becomes a lot realer and the decision becomes a lot more difficult to terminate. And there’s the fact the man she loves is out there and missing. And since this is a part of him, I think it makes it doubly difficult to terminate. I’m going to wait for people to watch the last couple episodes because the pregnancy does factor in. We all welcome the debate about what Carrie would or would not do with that child, but I really believe it’s an open question. Some say she’s a careerist, others say she’s really in love with Brody. It’s a real conundrum for her. And for us, it’s not melodramatic, it’s real. This is the stuff of life. People die, people fall in love, people have babies. To call it soap opera, or melodrama, it’s only in the way its handled. And I personally think we’ve handled the pregnancy in a very impressionistic way with a scene here or there.
Though as a result of her actions, Carrie did end up in a hospital again. You gotta do season 4 without one Carrie hospital scene!
Gansa: We’ll do our best, James, we’ll do our best.

YES I AM GOING, MY FRIEND BOUGHT WEEK-END PASSES, HOPEFULLY BUYING PICS WITH JASON MOMOA!!!!!
Paul Walker -- best known for his role in "The Fast and the Furious" movies -- died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California ... TMZ has learned.
The accident happened in Santa Clarita -- north of Los Angeles -- and according to multiple sources connected to Paul ... the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree ... and then the car burst into flames.
We're told Paul and another person in the car were killed. Law enforcement is still on the scene, and we're told the L.A. County Coroner's Office is on the way.
At this point, it's unclear what caused the accident, or who was behind the wheel when it happened.
Paul was 40 years old.
Sources close to Paul tell us he was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and had been taking friends out for rides in his new Porsche GT. The accident happened during one of those test spins.
A rep for the actor confirms Paul died today in the crash after leaving a charity event.
