'G.I. Joe 2' Gets Release Date, Only Three Characters to Return

After booking Jon Chu to direct "G.I. Joe 2", Paramount Pictures has selected a release date for the movie. It has just been announced that this "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" sequel will hit theaters across the U.S. on August 10, 2012.

The star admits she wouldn't do porn or anything too extreme, but she's "open to some romantic comedy stuff". But she won't be giving up the action roles anytime soon, saying "It's so much fun; I love me some destruction."

Britney Spears: There's Nothing to Say About Troubled Past

Britney Spears is determined to keep the media focus on her music as she prepares to launch her latest comeback album, insisting she has "nothing to say" about her past troubles. The "Toxic" hitmaker has endured a rocky few years since losing custody of her two young sons in 2008, after refusing to hand them over to ex-husband Kevin Federline at the end of an agreed visitation - she was hospitalized twice in a month and her father was subsequently handed control of her personal and financial affairs.

The conservator ship still stands as Spears prepares for the release of her new album, "Femme Fatale", later this month. But she insists anyone who wants to discuss her private life in upcoming interviews will be shut down fast - because she refuses to get personal.

She tells V Magazine, "There's nothing to say. I'll let the music speak for me. I'm past all of that (tabloid gossip). I try to block it all out and not pay attention to anything they write about me in the magazines or online. I'm done with that. I have learned to always stay true to myself and never let what other people say about me change who I am. It's a really important lesson that took me a long time to learn."

And Spears admits she would have no problem giving up her public persona if she feels herself struggling under the pressure of the spotlight. She says, "I'd be a full-time mum, which would be cool. I'd miss my fans and all of the love the most, but I definitely would not miss having my picture taken everywhere I go. I think it's easier to let people in when you're younger, but when I became a mother I wanted more privacy for myself and my children."

And the actress' appeal has been given a big boost by her pop star boyfriend Justin Timberlake. In a post on his blog, he writes, "Jessica Biel donating her 29th for @charitywater. Let's build a clean water well today!" Bieber's loyal following helped the birthday boy smash his target of $17,000 on Monday night, February 28 , before he officially turned 17 on Tuesday, March 1.

But Biel's charity appeal hasn't stirred the same amount of interest among her fans - only 14 people had pledged donations to the cause by Thursday afternoon, raising $885. The actress also raised funds for Charity: Water last year by completing a hike to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro with a group of celebrity pals.

Oscars Chief Explains Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin's Censored Kiss

 An Oscars producer has denied deliberately censoring a kiss between Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin from the Academy Awards telecast. The "No Country for Old Men" co-stars appeared onstage on Sunday, February 27 to present a trophy together, greeting one another by dancing and exchanging a kiss.

Home viewers did not see their embrace as the cameras cut to an extended shot of Bardem's wife Penelope Cruz in the audience - a move which sparked speculation TV bosses wanted to hide the actors' clinch. But Bruce Cohen, one of two producers for the show, is adamant he would have been thrilled to broadcast the smooch, insisting it would have made a "great TV moment". He tells, "It (the dance and the kiss) was unscripted, and the plan in the (outside broadcast) truck was always to cut to Penelope in the audience applauding Josh's and Javier's introduction, so that is what happened, just as they were starting to dance.

He adds, "Josh and Javier's moment (I saw them start to dance, but, to be honest, I have no idea if they kissed - that's the first I've heard of that) would have made a great TV moment, but since no one knew it was coming, we cut to the gorgeous Ms. Cruz as planned. By the time we cut back from her close-up, Josh and Javier were walking to the podium."

Natalie Portman Dissed for Out-of-Wedlock Pregnancy

 Despite Natalie Portman's rising profile during the last year, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is apparently not in favor of the Oscar winner's personal life. He took a jab at the expecting mother for glamorizing out-of-wedlock pregnancy when talking on "The Michael Medved Show" this Monday, February 28.

Huckabee claimed Portman and other pregnant, unwed celebrities and single mothers are sending "problematic message" to the public. "One of the things that's troubling is that people see a Natalie Portman or some other Hollywood starlet who boasts of, 'Hey look, you know, we're having children, we're not married, but we're having these children,' and they're doing just fine," the Fox News Channel personality said.

The former presidential candidate further stated that other unmarried and single mothers are mostly not as lucky as these celebrities, elaborating "And I think it gives a distorted image that yes, not everybody hires nannies, and caretakers, and nurses. Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that's the story that we're not seeing, and it's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of [out-of-wedlock children]."

Huckabee previously mentioned Jamie Lynn Spears, who was pregnant at 16 years old, to urge people to think wisely about early pregnancy. "I hope it is not an encouragement to other 16-year-olds who think that is the best course of action. But at the same time I'm not going to condemn her," he said. "I just hope that she will make another right decision, and that's to give that child all the love and kindness and care that she can."

Natalie Portman herself recently criticized John Galliano for his racist comment in which he was videotaped declaring, "I love Hitler." "I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano's comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way. I hope at the very least, these terrible comments remind us to reflect and act upon combating these still-existing prejudices that are the opposite of all that is beautiful," Benjamin Millepied's fiancee stated.

I will direct Dabangg 2: Arbaaz Khan

  Bollywood actor-producer Arbaaz Khan, who has been on a high ever since his debut production “Dabangg” turned out to be a blockbuster, will now take the reigns as the director for the sequel of the masala action movie.
Director Abhinav Kashyap, who helmed “Dabangg”, has decided against directing the sequel, for reasons unknown.
“Hey guys it true, I will be directing the sequel of ‘Dabangg’. Abhinav for some personal n professional reasons opted out (sic),” Arbaaz posted on his Twitter page Thursday.
Arbaaz, who couldn’t make it big as an actor thanks to flops like “Daraar” and “Hello Brother”, hit the gold with his first production venture.
“Scripting has already started, the filming starts by early january. Start sound, camera, action. Inshallah ‘Dabangg 2′ will live up to all the expectations and be a huge blockbuster because of you all. God bless . Allah hafiz. Dabangg ho!,” added the 43-year-old.
Rumours that Kashyap won’t direct the “Dabangg” sequel began doing the rounds in November last year itself.
At that time, Kashyap had denied the news, and told IANS: “This is just a rumour. I want to know if I am not making it, then who is making it? I even spoke to Arbaaz (Khan)…even he doesn’t know from where these rumours are coming.”
It was speculated that either Arbaaz or his brother Sohail would be directing the movie, and the news has now turned out to be true.
“Dabangg”, starring Salman Khan and debutant Sonakshi Sinha, was the highest Bollywood grosser of 2010.
