Chris Pine has been tapped as the face of Armani Code fragrance. The campaign featuring the handsome, blue-eyed Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit actor, 33, will debut in the spring.
"Chris perfectly embodies the brand's spirit with his strong charisma and natural elegance," Giorgio Armani said in a press release. "Besides revealing great talent, high versatility and the right amount of irony on set, his magnetic charm makes him the ideal match for this fragrance."
The Star Trek hunk is currently shooting Z for Zachariah with Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor and will next appear in Rob Marshall's musical Into the Woods (playing Cinderella's Prince opposite Anna Kendrick as Cinderella) and the Horrible Bosses sequel with Jennifer Aniston.
ONTD, How do you feel about the term MILF?
Diego Luna is Mexican, but his first English-language film as a director is a truly American story — a biopic about the migrant farmworker leader Cesar Chavez and the grape boycott of the late 1960s.
“The whole thing that we have to remind everyone is that this is an American story,” Luna, who got his first break stateside in the Sundance film Y Tu Mama Tambien back in 2001 and is now behind the lens directing Cesar Chavez, tells EW. “In fact it’s an amazing story for Mexicans to hear because there are a lot of connections, but we’re telling the story of a man who was born in Arizona. We’re telling the story of a community that works and feeds America.”
It’s surprising that there hasn’t yet been a big film about the influential labor leader, but with the immigration debate in full swing, the time seems ripe for more of a focus on Chavez. This week at Sundance the documentary Cesar’s Last Fast debuted; Luna’s film will be released this March.
Luna explains it was challenging to get U.S. financing — the first funders were Mexican — but as buzz has built Participant and others have come on board and the film now has distribution deals in both the U.S. and Mexico.
“There’s a reality that the market is changing and the stories of the Latino community need to be out because there’s a huge audience in need of films that would represent them,” he says.
The film focuses on just ten years in Chavez’s life and Luna says he chose to focus on the boycott and Chavez’s personal relationships to give a better sense of who he was as a person.
“To me, even though it’s the story of a hero who changed the life of many, in the end he was a simple man. I remember being on one of the interviews I had with the family and union members, and someone said Cesar could be in the same room you were in for three hours listening to everyone speaking and then at the end he will talk and you would realize you were in front of Cesar Chavez for three hours without even noticing him,” Luna recalls. “And I think that’s what makes the film very powerful, because when you see it you don’t see a man with a cape and a mask … you see a man doing something completely achievable by us – by you, by me, by anyone.”
Cesar Chavez stars Michael Pena as Chavez, alongside Rosario Dawson, Jacob Vargas, America Ferrera, and John Malkovich. It will be released on March 28, 2014.

After The Cuckoo’s Calling, JK Rowling’s second novel writing as Robert Galbraith will be released this year, and the Harry Potter author is enjoying the freedom of writing as a middle-aged army veteran.
“There’s a line in As Good as it Gets,” she said about the 1997 Jack Nicholson film, “where a woman asks him how he writes such wonderful female characters and he says, and I’m paraphrasing, ‘I think of a man, and I take out the logic’, or the sense.
"That made me laugh, as misogynistic as it is, because when I write a man I take certain things out and give free rein to aspects of me that would not be acceptable. To be honest, I think I’m quite blokey — at least I’m told I am, and I like writing both.”
Rowling was speaking at Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre yesterday as part of Exeter College’s 700th anniversary. Rowling actually went to Exeter University but her Oxford interviewer Jeri Johnson had offered advice in a successful legal battle Rowling had over the Harry Potter Lexicon, hence the connection.
The Cuckoo’s Calling was written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, only for the secret to be revealed by a solicitor who had been party to private discussions. “You were never supposed to know that it was my eviscerating pen,” she told guests. In fact, she said, failure was part of the pleasure. “It was fun, from the first rejection letter. You have no idea.”
Last week Rowling said she wished she had allowed Hermione to end up with Harry Potter rather than Ron at the end. Yesterday she added, by way of excuse: “Harry did love Ginny.”

They may or may not get medals during the 2014 Winter Olympics, but these two guys certainly have hearts of gold.
American Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy and Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska are doing their part to save the stray dogs in Sochi.
Why do the dogs need saving, you ask? Well, if you missed the story during the coverage of the games, basically Russian authorities thought all the strays roaming the city were causing problems for the opening ceremonies and all the visitors, so they hired a pest control company to catch the so-called "biological trash" and kill them.
Obviously, people were outraged. Oleg Deripaska, one of the wealthiest men in Russia, was so upset by this that he took it upon himself to save as many as he could. He used his fortune to build shelters for the strays in Baranovka, which is near Sochi.
When interviewed by BBC, he told them that the first dog he ever owned, his "close friend," was a stray he found on the street. So far, it's estimated that he's saved 140 dogs and many of them have been successfully adopted into homes.
You can watch BBC's segment on Deripaska and his dog shelter in the video below:
Meanwhile, U.S. skier Gus Kenworthy has fallen so in love with a pack of stray puppies he's found while in Sochi that he's using all his spare time getting them ready to be taken back with him to America.
"Spent all afternoon playing with a gang of stray puppies here in Sochi!" he wrote on his Facebook page. "Looking into finding a way to bring them home with me but also don't want to take them away from their mama because she was being super cute and protective over them. I bought them some food and I'll go visit them again tomorrow."
He also tweeted on Wednesday that he's already lined up vet appointments in order to get them vaccinated and ready to be brought home with him.
"Also, for the people wondering, I've lined up kennels 4 the pups & made vaccination appointments. Doing all I can to bring them home w/ me!" he wrote on his Twitter.
Kudos to these two men for being true heroes of the Sochi games! If we could put you on podiums and give you medals and flowers, we totally would.
Imagine a world where it was the men who were sexually harassed and abused in the streets by women and the men who were in charge of child care. A French director put together a short video showing just this scenario and it is going viral.
In the thought-provoking short film, "Majorité Opprimé" or "Oppressed Majority" the roles have been reversed, and what at first it appears to be quite funny, eventually becomes rather disturbing and dark.
The film was made back in 2010 by French actress, director and screenwriter, Eleonoré Pourriat. On February 5th this year, Pourriat uploaded the video to YouTube and it has already had well over three million views.
Pourriat told The Independent that she found it "astonishing, just incredible" that interest in her film had exploded this way, saying "Obviously, I have touched a nerve. Women in France, but not just in France, feel that everyday sexism has been allowed to go on for too long."
JJ Abrams's Star Wars: Episode VII will shoot from mid-May to September this year, according to the US site HitFix.
Respected columnist Drew McWeeny quoted multiple sources confirming the shooting schedule. Episode VII is expected to film mainly at London's Pinewood studios, with some work (mostly post-production) also taking place at Abrams's Californian facility.
The film-maker had previously mentioned a May start date, but the new report marks the first time a full shooting schedule has been published. If correct, it would leave Abrams – who directed Super 8, both recent Star Trek films, and produced the TV fantasy adventure series Lost – around 15 months for post-production work before Episode VII hits cinemas in December 2015.
HitFix also suggests that principal casting for the film, the first in a planned trilogy of sequels to the classic Star Wars movies released between 1977 and 1983, is complete. So far, no casting details have been revealed for Episode VII, though it is expected to centre on the iconic trio of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo portrayed by Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford.
Gary Oldman, Zac Efron, Saoirse Ronan and Michael B Jordan are among those actors who have publicly revealed auditions. Abrams has confirmed talks with Breaking Bad's Jesse Plemons, and a host of actors from Chiwetel Ejiofor to Benedict Cumberbatch and Simon Pegg, have been tipped for roles. The only 100% confirmed character, however, is diminutive space droid R2-D2.
Episode VII will be the first Star Wars film to emerge since Disney's $4.05bn purchase of all rights to the long-running space saga in October 2012.

Rapper Lil Kim showed off her baby bump at New York Fashion Week Wednesday night.
She attended the Blondes Runway show. Other celebrities including Perez Hilton and Tamar Braxton were quick to offer their well wishes.

Skip to ~11 mins for the anecdote.
One of the strippers who posed with Katy Perry inside a Santa Barbara strip club has been FIRED for violating the Cardinal rule ... taking pics of their encounter and making them public.
Sources tell TMZ ... honchos from Spearmint Rhino's corporate offices marched over to the Santa Barbara location earlier this week and promptly fired Cassidy (her stripper name) in front of all the other girls.
23-year-old Cassidy -- pictured above on the right -- was one of the girls working Super Bowl night, when Katy rolled in with boyfriend John Mayer and dropped stacks all over the place.
Cassidy, Katy, and other dancers posed for several photos ... TMZ obtained the pics and posted them a couple days later -- and management was pissed.
We're told Cassidy -- who has a child -- violated her club's "no cameras" rule by taking the photos and making them public and that's why she got canned.
We're told Cassidy was fired in front of all the other girls to send a clear message ... don't mess with client privacy, or else.
poor dat..she knew what she was doing. Have you ever been fired in front of co workers?
Oh Season 1... the good old days.
Sophie Turner on Filming Game of Thrones Without Richard Madden and Michelle Fairley — Exclusive
By REBECCA MARTIN
Game of Thrones Season 4 premieres in under two months, but many fans are still recovering from Season 3's bloody Red Wedding. Really, will we ever be totally over watching Cat, Robb, Talisa, and all of Robb's bannermen slaughtered in one fell swoop? Probably not.
So when Wetpaint Entertainment chatted with Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) at the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2014 Collection show during New York Fashion Week, we had to ask her how last season's massacre affected the vibe on set during Season 4.
"It's different," Sophie admitted. "It's like losing a part of your family. And you know, you go down to the restaurant and you don't see Richard [Madden], who played Robb, and Michelle [Fairley], who played Catelyn, so it's kind of devastating."
Of course, on Game of Thrones, for every character we lose, it feels like we meet five new ones. "There are more characters coming in," Sophie added, "so it's like a big family. People go and people come. It's cool."
Sophie is currently filming in NYC, and talk about the WORST time to be filming a movie here. The weather is a fucking mess. How will you be spending the cold, dreary day tomorrow, House ONTD?
In honor of next month's 25th anniversary of their debut album 3 Feet High and Rising, De La Soul are making their entire catalog available for free download for 25 hours on the group's website. The download bonanza will begin on Friday, February 14th at 11 a.m. EST until Saturday at noon.
"It's about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it," De La Soul member Posdnuous tells Rolling Stone. "Its been too long where our fans haven't had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them."
The same things that made 3 Feet High and other De La albums so influential — its creative, if not fully licensed, use of a myriad of samples — has also prevented the group's work from appearing on many digital platforms. "It's been a trying journey," admits Posdnuous. "We've been blessed to be in the Library of Congress, but we can't even have our music on iTunes. We've been working very hard to get that solved." The rapper points to frequent changes at record labels and hazy language in early contracts that have led to long delays in properly clearing the group's catalog.
The release of the group's catalog is the first of numerous upcoming projects. In a few weeks, they'll post new songs to their site alongside You're Welcome, their first album since 2004's The Grind Date that they hope to release before summer. Next month will also see the release of Preemium Soul on the Rocks, a six-song EP with three beats each from DJ Premier and Pete Rock. The group is also planning a visit to Detroit to work on an unreleased beat from J Dilla, the prolific producer who passed away in 2006. "Dilla was the Tupac of producers," says Posdnuous. "He has so many unreleased things that no one has heard. His family knows how vital and important an ingredient his music was to our work."
Asked about the status of You're Welcome, an album originally scheduled for release last year, Posdnuous says that it's "coming along amazingly," but points to self-criticism in its delay. "We have tons of music, but we're our own worst critics," admits the rapper. "Certain groups have too many 'yes men.' In our group, we have too many 'no men.' When we look back on some of the stuff we have, we're like, 'Yo, we need to just put this out.' The album is still called You're Welcome, but we also have this whole other album that we're working on that…Wooo, I wish I could talk about it."
Twenty-five years into their career, the group is ready, if somewhat cautiously, to adopt the more-is-more release schedule of its younger peers. "We're just getting in the mode of constantly giving people new music," says Posdnuous. "I'll be the first to say that not everyone can do it. You can put out a new mixtape every week, but it can dilute what you're putting out because you haven't had enough time to see what's going on with your life to write something from a different angle. With us, we've sat a long time without releasing an album. It's high time we start releasing a bunch of stuff because it's there."

Leonardo DiCaprio recently revealed that he turned down “more money than I ever dreamed of” to star in the film Hocus Pocus.
He instead opted to audition for the What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, which would net him his first Academy Award nomination.
“I don’t know where the hell I got the nerve,” Leonardo told Variety. “You live in an environment where you’re influenced by people telling you to make a lot of money and strike while the iron’s hot. But if there’s one thing I’m very proud of, it’s being a young man who was sticking to my guns.”
Source(full disclosure mods, this was technically posted here but it was buried in some no1curr interview)
Did Leo make the right choice?
Most of us were first introduced to Tim Gunn on Project Runway where his "make it work" catchphrase caught on faster than the crop-top trend. And, yes, maybe to this day we find ourselves quoting him when faced with a rather challenging task. But, while the former Liz Claiborne chief creative officer has often shared advice in a public forum — he's written quite the collection of books — yesterday's Reddit AMA was a first.
Understandably, some Reddit readers couldn't help but ask the tastemaker about their own fashion dilemmas, but there was much more to take away from the talk than just the importance of buttoned sweater vests. Here are the five facts we're happy we learned.
— "Make it work" is not new.
Gunn said he created the phrase about 20 years ago. "It originated in my classroom and was spoken to a student who wanted to throw out a project and start all over again. And, I said no. You're going to make it work. And, what it means is: Offer up a diagnosis for what's going wrong, and a prescription for how to make it right. And, each time that we engage in that process, we move forward with more resources available to us."
— Don't expect to see any childhood photos of him.
"You know, I've never told anyone this," Gunn said in response to why one user couldn't Google up many young pictures of him, "in an effort to run from my past and disguise it, I got rid of all of the scrapbooks my mother, kept going back to when I was a baby. Truly. So, that's why whenever talk-show hosts or a producer asks for these pictures, there are barely any. My sister had a few, but that's it, and this was before digital. I've never told anyone that, but that's the truth.
— He thinks the fashion industry is really letting down the plus-size community.
And, petite women, too! "The fashion industry at large has been the worst public relations vehicle for larger women and petite women, they are both maligned and neglected. And, I honestly do believe it's getting better. I do. And, I'm doing all that I can to prod the industry and get them to pay more attention. Because, I find it to be reprehensible and repugnant that two populations that are so pervasive in this nation should be so badly neglected."
— He makes a great boss.
Actually, this comment was from a Reddit user who used to work for Gunn. "I don't know if you remember me," jaroberts24 started. "I was the production coordinator on the first season of Guide to Style. I just wanted to thank you for a making working on that show a lot of fun and to let everyone here know that, even after being in this business for over a decade, you are still one of the nicest people I have ever worked with.
"Case in point: I started after the first episode was already filmed, so I was 'the new guy.' And, on my first day I was just kind of wandering around set, a little dazed (it was my first network TV gig), and Tim noticed, I suppose, and he came up to me and said something like, "You are the new guy, huh?" [He] walked me around set and introduced me to everyone on the crew. I probably never properly thanked you for that out of sheer shyness, but it really helped me get over that hump of being the outsider and calmed my nerves that day."
— Gunn fell victim to acid.
No, no guys, not that. Acid-wash jeans. When one user asked him which fashion trend he most regrets, he cited this '80s throwback. Happens to all of us, Tim.
Forget Kim — Kendall Jenner is the real Kardashian about to dominate the fashion industry.
The stunner, who signed with Society Management in November of last year, just hit the runway for Marc Jacobs during his fall 2014 presentation, as an exclusive, her rep confirmed.
And boy, did she hit with a bang: she walked in a completely sheer top.
We suspected Jenner might be working with Jacobs after she Instagrammed herself with his close friend and stylist Katie Grand earlier this week.
The last runway Jenner walked was the Heart Truth show last season, which means she’s made quite the jump in just six months. Between this, her recent W shoot with photographers Mert and Marcus, and a 2013 appearance in V, our bets are on Jenner to make the transition from reality star to bonafide fashion bunny.
how much did kris pay 2 put her on that runway tho?
Matt Damon, the greatest good sport ever, is taking shots again, now from actor buddy Ben Affleck. But he’s firing back this time. The two appear in a video together to promote their latest cause: The deal is you donate $10 that will go toward both the Eastern Congo Initiative (Affleck’s choice) and Water.org (Damon’s choice) and you (plus a friend) will also be entered to win a trip to go to Hollywood and attend a VIP event with the duo.
In the video, Affleck bashes Damon’s height, Damon opens an old wound by pointing out that Affleck’s eye twitches whenever someone brings up Gigli, Affleck brags about his Best Picture win for Argo, Damon indirectly claims he did most of the writing for Good Will Hunting. It’s all in good fun though, and the two erupt in laughter as the video ends. If this is what going on a date with the two will be like, I’m in.
