    Joseph Gordon-Levitt is working with Lisa Henson, Jim Henson's daughter, on producing a live-action film version of Fraggle Rock that he is also set to star in.

    “The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on ‘Sesame Street,’ and then on ‘Fraggle Rock,'” Gordon-Levitt said. “Jim Henson’s characters make you laugh and sing, but they’re also layered, surprising, and wise. From Oscar the Grouch, to Yoda, to the Fraggles. I’ve never stopped loving his work, even as a young frisky man, and on into adulthood. Collaborating with Lisa Henson makes me confident we can do something that Jim would have loved. I’m grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project.”

    On EDM's DJ's
    Over the past few years, according to Brandon DJ's have reached out hoping that he would be featured on their music on vocals. He goes on to say that “DJs’ names should not be on songs. They don’t write any of their own songs! I'm on the phone with some random guy in Norway who actually wrote the song, talking it through. It’s crazy."

    It was rumoured after Calvin Harris had remixed "When You Were Young" for The Killers' compilation album "Direct Hits," the DJ had reached out for a collaboration with Brandon. Calvin however does in fact write his own music ("We Found Love," "I Will Never Let You Down"). Perhaps the issue was having Calvin Harris (feat. Brandon Flowers) that things didn't work out?

    On the current state of Rock music:
    “When I listen to a rock radio station in Las Vegas, I don’t hear rock ’n’ roll,” he says, shaking his head in frustration. “I don’t even hear fragments of it, and it’s frustrating. I’m not in the most rock ’n’ roll band on the planet, but you can trace what we do to those roots, and I can’t hear it on the radio anymore. And I don’t hear anything that’s good. I’m not being a dick, but I don’t hear anything that’s good. Everyone goes into their living room, fires up their computer, and are just putting stuff out, and they haven’t earned the right to be where they’re at. These kids that make these keyboard records, it drives me nuts! It’s like, ‘Do you hear New Order? Do you hear it? Because yours is not as good as that! Go back and work harder.’ It’s so strange to me, and there’s so much of it.”

    On his stage presence:
    “You know, it took a long time. I’ve probably done over 1,000 shows now. I just learned to enjoy it more and more, and that’s started to show, and you feel like you’ve earned your place there. There are people who come out onstage and feel like they belong, but it’s taken me a bit longer to get there.”

    On his father's converting to Mormonism:
    “My dad converted to Mormonism when I was 6, and he smoke and drank. And I saw him turn his life around. It had a big impact on me, so as I got older and was coming of age, I came to that same realization of, ‘I don’t know if I want that in my fridge, and I don’t know if I want that stuff around.’ My dad became a better person when he stopped doing all that stuff, so it was a big lesson for me.”

    On quitting drinking and smoking:
    "When I stopped smoking and drinking, instantly the shows started getting better. I sang better, I had more longevity, and I felt better. That was about eight years ago. And being committed to my wife and family, I can’t think of a downside to it. There are people in the past who’ve done the sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll thing and made it happen for them, but I knew even when I was young that that wasn’t going to work out for me.”

    On Morminism:

    “It’s still a very misunderstood thing. There’s weird rumors, and somebody just needs to clear it up! I think Romney would even admit that he wasn’t a great ambassador for it. His answers weren’t great, and it made it even worse; it seemed like he was hiding something. But there’s really nothing to hide. You can find out what you need to find out! It’s all there."

    When asked about same-sex marriages under his church:
    "Do Catholics perform same-sex marriages? I doubt our church ever will perform them. I doubt it. But I was always taught that everyone on this Earth is my brother and sister, so maybe from an outsider’s perspective it looks worse than it really is, but we don’t teach fire and brimstone.”

    Keep it cute Brandon. 2014 was a rough year for a lot of favs.

    Diane Kruger covers the April issue of Marie Claire Brazil, where she talks about her love of Paris, her distant relationship with her alcoholic father, building a house with Josh, wanting children, and living in the same neighborhood as Karl Lagerfield (for a change).

    On her childhood:
    "I had a miserable childhood. But we were of lower middle class and money was scarce. So when I started working as a model, I helped my mother. "

    On her father:
    "We don't speak, I don't even know if he's alive"

    On dating older men:
    "After much therapy I realized that I had punished several boyfriends unnecessarily, because of the absence of the father figure in my life. I dated older men to try to meet this need"

    On Josh (says they're building a house together because they want "many, many children"):
    "He's like me. Came from a simple family and gives value to the most sacred thing in the life of an actor: free time"

    She also shared that they live in LA, but also have an apartment in Paris, next to Karl Lagerfield's.

    Behind the scenes of the photoshoot:

    The stars of The Spoils, a production by The New Group, met the press on Wednesday, April 1. Previews begin Tuesday, May 5, with opening night June 2. Performances run until June 28th.

    Got my tickets in late March - the guy said that the set hadn't even been built at that time, so... wondering if a month in rehearsals is going to be enough time! I hope the play is good and that Jesse's character is less annoying than the first two he played. Full plot here: http://www.thenewgroup.org/the-spoils.html

    The only other cast member I kinda know is Michael Zegen - apparently he was in Adventureland but I know him more from Boardwalk Empire, where he played Bugsy Siegel for a few episodes. I've never watched Big Bang Theory, and I only recently found out that Erin Darke is Daniel Radcliffe's girlfriend, lol.

    The hottest man in England has recently had a life-size statue made entirely out of chocolate fashioned in his likeness. According to the UK's Standard, "The 38-year-old actor's chocolate doppelganger was created to celebrate the launch of television channel Drama on the new on-demand service uktvplay.co.uk following a national poll which named the Oscar nominated star as Britain’s best looking television drama actor."

    Apparently, the statue took 250 man-hours to create. Tim Simpson was the lead sculptor for this and of the project, he said,"You can't rush perfection. Benedict has such a distinctive look that it was a challenge but a pleasure to recreate him in chocolate. A secret combination of methods ensured we got a great likeness - we're sure his legions of fans will approve!"


    What kind of modern muse? Inspiring craftsmen everywhere tbh.

  • Paris sat down with Elle's editor in chief Joe Zee for an interview. Here's what she had to say.

    A lot of them wrote about Kim being your former assistant/ stylist, do you think your career paved the way for her?

    We've known each other since we were little girls. We've always been friends. It's nice to inspire people. So yeah. I'm really proud of her and what she's done though.

    Do you guys still talk?

    I saw her like a few weeks ago in New York. And we were hanging out.

    And do you hang out with Kanye?

    Yeah. They're so cute together. They're the perfect couple.

    And what about North West?

    She's so cute. She's always wanted to have a family, so I'm really happy for her.

    Paramount Pictures has pulled the historical fantasy The Moon and the Sun from its release schedule only three weeks before it was meant to hit theaters.The film, based on a bestselling novel of the same name, stars Pierce Brosnan as Louis XIV; the plot of the film revolves around Louis XIV's decision to capture a mermaid (played by Fan Bingbing) in order to gain immortality by stealing her life force.

    The Moon and the Sun was originally slated to be released on April 10th. Paramount Pictures has not announced a new release date for the film. According to Hollywood Reporter, "one source close to the film" has said that the special effects for the movie are taking longer than anticipated, and that it may be released in the summer of 2015.

    Paramount's decision marks the second film featuring Louis XIV to be pulled from its American release date this year. Earlier in 2015, the more traditional historical film A Little Chaos, starring Alan Rickman as the famous Sun King, was pulled from its American theater release. Louis XIV just can't catch a break!
