First Look: Lindsay Lohan Goes Brunette for Elizabeth Taylor Biopic

Lindsay Lohan has ditched her blonde hair in preparation for the filming of Lifetime's "Liz & Dick". Channeling the late Elizabeth Taylor, the Kimmie Keegan of "Ugly Betty" sported darker locks and arranged it in an updo style when she was spotted during the pre-production of the biopic. 

Taking a break during a photo shoot and a lighting test, the "Mean Girls" star smoked a cigarette. In the photo obtained by TMZ, the 25-year-old singer/actress donned a casual outfit which consisted of a long-sleeved black shirt and white mini-pants.

The production of the Liz Taylor biopic itself will kick off on Monday, June 4 in Los Angeles. Giving updates on the preparation, executive producer Larry Thompson told E! Online, "All her clothes are made. All her jewelry is made. Come Monday morning, Liz and Dick will live again."

Lohan and Grant Bowler, who is cast as Richard Burton, had their last rehearsal on Friday, June 1 with director Lloyd Kramer. "She is excited and so into it. She went from being unfocused to being totally focused now that the movie is up and going," Thompson gushed.

"Liz & Dick" chronicles the enduring love of movie icons Taylor and Burton, whose fiery romance was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Thompson previously hinted that the TV movie will feature a lot of steamy scenes as saying, "Chemistry means movie magic for sex. This movie will definitely have as much sex as Lifetime will allow." 

First Photo of Rihanna and Emma Watson on the Set of 'The End of the World'


Rihanna and Emma Watson have started working for Seth Rogen's directorial debut "The End of the World". Both the "Battleship" star and the "Harry Potter" film series actress were photographed filming a scene on the set of the action comedy pic in New Orleans on Thursday, May 31. 


Riri exposed her firm legs in hotpants to complete her knitted top, while Emma donned a nude-colored top and blazer that she paired with skinny jeans and boots. They were snapped doing a run-in-panic scene along with some other co-stars and extras. In between breaks, the two beauties were spotted sharing laughs while having some chit-chats. 


After finishing shooting that day, the "We Found Love" hitmaker took to her Twitter to show how she had a blast on the set. "Just leaving set! This has to be one of my favorite moments in life," she wrote. The British actress, meanwhile, tweeted, "Comedy is brutal. New Orleans is the best!! :) See you all soon. Em. x." 


Also spotted on the set on Thursday were Jonah Hill, James Franco, Mindy Kaling, Jason Segel, Aziz Ansari, Paul Rudd and Michael Cera. Along with Riri and Emma, all those actors will play themselves in the upcoming comedy movie. 


"End of the World" is inspired by a short called "Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse", which stars Seth and Jay Baruchel who are held up in an apartment while dealing with the end of the world. The upcoming film, meanwhile, will expand its story and involve not only Seth and Jay but also some other celebrities as they get stuck in James Franco's Los Angeles apartment during the apocalypse. 


In addition to directing it, Seth co-writes the script and co-produces the movie along with his longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg. Mandate Pictures will release the flick in the United States on June 14, 2013. 

'True Blood' Season 5: Tina Majorino's Cast as Another Vampire, Tara's Back

"True Blood" adds another vampire to its fifth season. A spokesperson for HBO has confirmed that Tina Majorino, who is best known for her roles on "Veronica Mars" and "Big Love", lands a recurring role as a key member of the Vampire Authority's support staff. She will first appear in the third episode which is slated to air June 24. 
In another news, Rutina Wesley has confirmed that her character Tara will return to the upcoming season, although she was shot in the head in the season 4 finale. "She's coming back! And how she comes back is going to be very, very, very interesting," the actress gushed when met at the show's season 5 special screening event on Wednesday, May 30.

Supporting Wesley's statement, creator Allan Ball said, "Tara is still a part of the show. I'm sure fans have a lot of different ideas of how that could be possible, and one of those ideas is correct." One thing for sure is that Eric and Bill could not help Sookie save her best friend.

"I can tell you that Bill and Eric can't come running to the rescue," Wesley told TV Guide "They just killed a member of the Authority, so they're going to have a big mess to clean up themselves, so Sookie's going to have to figure this out on her own. But, you know, she's strong and resourceful and doesn't need a man to figure out her problems."

She further spilled the beans that Sookie and Tara's relationship will be different after the latter's revived. She gushed, "That's going to be the interesting part to watch: Tara's reaction to Sookie and Sookie's reaction to Tara. All I can say is it's charged."

"True Blood" season 5 will premiere Sunday, June 10 at 9 P.M. ET on HBO. Christopher Meloni joins the cast as the leader of Vampire Authority, while Dennis O'Hare reprises his role as Russell Edgington. It was recently also reported that Emmy winner Alfre Woodard will return as Ruby Jean Reynolds, Lafayette's schizophrenic mother. 

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Sell Their Homes but Have No Plan to Move In Together

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West raised people's eyebrows when their respective homes were listed on sales, igniting rumors that the couple planned to move in together. A source close to the actress, however, called the stories untrue and insisted that the sales of their houses were just "a coincidence." 

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star bought the house, which she put on the market, for a reported $3.4 million two years ago. She's now asking $5 million for the mansion located in Beverly Hills. She is said to have outgrown her current home and want to move to a gated community for security and privacy reasons.

The Tuscan-style 4,000-square-foot house boasts five-bedroom and four-and-a-half-bathroom home. It also features a media room, a pool, an outdoor living and dining room, dark hardwood floors and a two-story entry. Although it's not in a gated community, it sits on a quiet-for-most-people cul de sac and has its own gate.

As for Kanye, he bought his 4,214-square-foot home in 2003 for a reported $1.75 million. The rap mogul has put the pad on the market for $4 million since two years ago, but it never sold. The house has a ceiling mural in the dining room and French walnut floors throughout. It boasts sweeping city views and a built-in aquarium in the master bathroom. 

Madonna Disses Lady GaGa, Promotes World Peace at Tour Opener in Tel Aviv

Madonna officially opened her tour to promote her latest studio album "MDNA" in Tel Aviv, Israel. The Material Girl stormed the stage at Ramat Gan Stadium with a handful of dancers and wowed the sold-out crowd with fierce performances of songs from her extensive catalog. 

Among the tracks the Queen of Pop sang was "Express Yourself" from critically acclaimed album "Like a Prayer". She was previously taped mashing up the track with Lady GaGa's "Born This Way" that bears resemblance to the 1989 hit single, and reportedly performed the reworked version at the live show.

However, Madge took a shot at the Mother Monster during the Thursday, May 31 gig. The "Girl Gone Wild" singer kept her jab short and to the point. "She's not me!" so she shouted at the end of "Express Yourself" performance without mentioning who her target was.

Other sets saw the "W.E." director channeling her inner cheerleader and turning the stage into a church with a confessional theme complete with a huge cross. She was also joined by her son Rocco Ritchie who served as a backing dancer in one of the performances.

In between songs, Madge promoted world peace, saying, "If there is peace here in the Middle East, there can be peace in the whole world." Despite the campaign, she and her dancers delivered grim routines depicting violence and bloody gunmen in one of the sets. She also reportedly broke through a glass window using a rifle, which she then aimed at the concertgoers.

"I chose to start my world tour in Israel for a very specific and important reason," she explained. "You can't be a fan of mine and not want peace in the world, we all bleed the same color,. ... If we can all rise above our egos and our titles and the names of our countries and our religions, and treat everyone around us with dignity and respect, then we are on the road to peace."

She reportedly donated 580 tickets to members of Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, but not everyone accepted her gift. One activist Alma Biblash said as quoted by Haaretz Daily Newspaper, "There's nothing in this concert but it being a concert for peace. The concept of peace is empty of any meaning, everyone wants peace without understanding the consequences, without seeing the price involved."

After the Tel Aviv concert, Madge will perform in such big cities as London, Paris, Milan and Berlin before hitting North America beginning August 28 in Philadelphia. She will perform in North America until before Thanksgiving, and continue the trek to Latin America until the holidays. The tour will conclude in Australia in early 2013. 





'Snow White' Star Charlize Theron Questioned by Her Mom Over Her Parenting Skills

Charlize Theron admitted her mother is concerned about her parenting skills. The actress, who plays Queen Ravenna on "Snow White and the Huntsman", revealed she was feeding her son Jackson while watching "Game of Thrones", leaving her mom baffled. 

"And my mum was like, 'Do you think it's fine that you're feeding your son while there's sword fights?'," the 36-year-old movie beauty opened up to Us Weekly. "I was like, 'It's fine, mum. It's fine.' So, yeah, I'm somewhat obsessed with that right now."

"I cannot get enough of that," she additionally gushed. "When my son came in to my life that was our bottle feeds because I couldn't watch television and I slept so little. And that was my TiVo feed every two hours watching 'Game of Thrones'."

In a previous chat with MTV, Theron talked about the adjustment she was making as a first-time mother. She said she would censor herself and restrain from cursing when she's around her adopted kid. "A lot of people have sent me these children's books, and there's this amazing book, a best-seller [called] 'Go the F**k to Sleep'," she said.

"This book was fantastic for me because it made me realize that I don't need to judge myself right now," she stated. "The whole book is just basically, 'Please, go the f**k to sleep.' [Jackson] doesn't understand anything right now, and so he just wants my face to look a certain way." 

Zhang Ziyi Demands Apology for False Sex Scandal Story

Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, who claimed her fame in Hollywood through her role in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", denies that she gets $100 million for prostituting herself. Also, she is demanding an apology from a Hong Kong newspaper which reported her sexual relationship with Chinese politician Bo Xilai. 

"The accusations made against award-winning actress Zhang Ziyi are completely false and defamatory," Ziyi's rep told the press. "There is no truth in any of the allegations that have come forth which are a result of calculated cruel intentions against a well-respected established actress. Legal repercussions are ensuing and these scandalous reports will not be tolerated in any way."

The Apple Daily first claimed that it got its story from Boxun.com which is a Chinese site operating in U.S. It was claimed that Ziyi has been paid millions of dollars to carry on sexual relationship with Xilai since 2007. They were introduced to each other by his billionaire pal.

After the story was published, Ziyi reportedly was under police investigation and was not allowed to leave the country. Her latest movie "Dangerous Liaisons" was premiered at Cannes Film Festival last week but she did not come. Of this, her rep said, "We just want to help her get rid of this disturbance and seek justice. Then she will be able to shoot her films in peace and quiet and present you, her fans, with more and better films in return." 

Megan Fox Reacts to Magazine's Apology Over Misinterpretation of Her 'Unattractive' Statement

Megan Fox has responded to the apology issued by a French magazine, Jalouse, that featured an interview with her in its April issue. The Mikaela Banes of "Transformers" movie series claims the publication has "grossly distorted and misrepresented" her statement. 

A disappointed Fox posts on Facebook, "Before this starts to circulate and spin into something else I want to address a 'quote' that has started to run from an interview I did with a French magazine called Jalouse. The quote reads 'i wouldn't trade my place with an unattractive girl'."

"The actual comment, the context and it's intention are grossly distorted and misrepresented here. I gave this interview in English obviously, it was then translated to French and now back into English. I've never made vapid self serving comments and in contradiction am uncontrollably self deprecating."

After the retraction, the wife of Brian Austin Green writes, "Thank you Jalouse Magazine for printing the following retraction," along with an apology from the magazine, "In a Jalouse cover story featuring Ms. Megan Fox, we unfortunately misquoted Ms. Fox. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused." 

Drew Barrymore Goes to Final Wedding Dress Fitting With Cameron Diaz

Drew Barrymore is closer to finish preparation for her upcoming wedding with fiance Will Kopelman. On Wednesday, May 30, the "Going the Distance" star who's currently expecting a baby was spotted attending her final wedding dress fitting with fellow actress and good friend Cameron Diaz at the Chanel store in Beverly Hills. 

Barrymore showed off her baby bump in a black top, while Diaz matched her friend's casual look by wearing a plain white tee and a pair of turquoise pants. The two ladies were joined by Kopelman who picked up a few things of his own which included a tuxedo. He was also seen carrying a bag from Parisian jewelry and watch designer Van Cleef & Arpels.

Barrymorre and Kopelman reportedly will exchange wedding vows this coming Saturday, June 2 in Montecito, Calif. "She wants it to be very personal and intimate," a source said. "She wants to do it right and be surrounded by family and friends." The ceremony will be conducted by a longtime rabbi of the Kopelman's family.

Rumor has it, Diaz will be one of Barrymore's bridesmaids. Due to her close relationship with the bride-to-be, Kopelman sought her guidance before he popped the question to the "Whip It!" actress. "Drew has been leaning on Cameron a lot," a source told Us Weekly. "Cameron has been very involved." 

'The Amazing Spider-Man' Unleashes Two More Oscorp Industries Viral Videos



Columbia Pictures continues with its viral campaign for "The Amazing Spider-Man". A little over a month before the superhero movie hits the theaters, a pair of new Oscorp Industries videos are released online. Featuring Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors, they give an idea that the scientist is in his early transformation phase to be the Lizard.

The viral video aside, Connors' part in the reboot movie was discussed by producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach in a recent interview with Omelete. Arad offered a brief insight into the relationship between the villain and the hero, stating that the film takes a look at what Connors means to Peter Parker. Tolmach added that Connors' story serves as a cautionary tale for the web-slinging hero.

During the chat, Tolmach also talked about the reboot itself. "It's a story about a boy trying to become a man, it's about that time in life when we're all struggling with who we are and what it means to have power and responsibility yet you just wanna be a kid," he said. "Without knowing it, but we knew it, we wanted to get back to telling that story."

On the subject of Gwen Stacey, Arad said, "The Gwen story was always very unique because of the father being the head of police. All these metaphors become real life; Peter Parker's with a mask, the father is with a badge. The girl who understands what it is to be a daughter of a hero... What [are] the risks to fall in love with someone like that? How that impacts her life and her father's life."

"The Amazing Spider-Man" follows Peter Parker, an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. When he discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance, leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors, his father's former partner.

Starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, this superhero movie has director Marc Webb serving behind the lens. It is due to arrive in cinemas across the U.S. on July 3.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd Get Hot and Heavy at Las Vegas Nightclub

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and fellow "Dancing with the Stars" pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd need to play coy no more on the nature of their relationship. They were caught on camera kissing during a night outing in Las Vegas over the weekend. 

The "DWTS" dancers were spotted locking lips on the dance floor at XS nightclub in Las Vegas, so TMZreported. Peta wore a red dress, while Maxim donned a black t-shirt and denims. He wrapped his arm around the blonde beauty and leaned close to her.

According to PEOPLE, this was not the first time the couple were pictured kissing. On Saturday, May 26, they shared a smooch at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas. A few days earlier, they were said getting cozy at the opening of his new dance studio in Connecticut.

Both of them dodged the question about the rumor. "I try to keep certain things private just because - what's the politically correct way of saying it? It's none of anybody's business. It's very intimate and personal," Maxim said. Peta, meanwhile, stated, "I'm here to support Maksim."

A source, meanwhile, said, "She's had a crush on him for a long time. They are really great together. And he is very happy." Another insider stated, "It's early but I think this will last. They're a good match, a good couple. She says they're not dating but they are. Everyone knows it." 

Anne Hathaway All Smiles While Out and About Wearing a Sling on Her Arm

Anne Hathaway put on a big smile during a recent outing although her arm was bandaged and supported by a sling. The "Les Miserables" star was caught on camera taking a stroll on the streets of New York on Wednesday, May 30 along with a male friend. 

The actress, who chopped off her hair to portray Fantine in the Tom Hooper big-screen adaptation of the famous musical, wore a sleeveless hounds-tooth patterned long dress. She finished off her casual look with a burgundy choker, a pair of wedges and aviator glasses.

It's unclear how "The Princess Diaries" star injured her arm. "She had a minor accident over the weekend and injured her wrist," her representative explained to the Daily News before assuring that the injury was "nothing serious." 

Kevin Feige Promises Major New Antagonist for 'Thor 2', Slams Thanos Rumor


Kevin Feige has revealed clues on what to expect in "Thor 2". The President of Production of Marvel Studios promised that the God of Thunder will face off a major new villain in the sequel, but claimed that the bad guy would not be Thanos. 


Speaking to Empire magazine, Feige debunked rumors that Thanos could appear in the sequel to "Thor" to seek revenge after Loki failed him in "The Avengers". He stated, "No, future, future. But there will be a major new villain. A major, major new antagonist..." 


Though Feige didn't unveil who is the new bad guy in "Thor 2", it has been speculated that Mads Mikkelsen will be the one to tackle the villainous part. His casting news has been broken a few days ago, but it is still unclear which antagonist role he will play. 


The new major villain aside, Feige discussed what else to expect from the follow-up movie. "We're going to see the other side of Asgard," he gushed. "It's not all polished and golden in this film. And the events of Avengers will have affected Thor for sure. His relationship with Loki will continue to evolve, and the biggest part is Natalie and Thor returning with Jane Foster." 


"Thor 2" will bring back Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston as the titular hero and his evil brother Loki respectively. Also returning to the cast ensemble are Idris Elba as Heimdall, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. 


Walt Disney Pictures has scheduled to release the film in the U.S. theaters on November 15, 2013. 

'Les Miserables' First Official Trailer Features Anne Hathaway's 'I Dreamed a Dream'


The first official trailer of "Les Miserables" has been released following the bootleg version which was leaked two weeks ago. Fans get the chance to hear Anne Hathaway's tearful rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" and a glimpse of her character Fantine getting her locks chopped up real short. 


The big screen version of the famous musical is directed by "The King's Speech" helmer Tom Hooper, starring also Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried as Jean Valjean, Inspector Javert and Cosette respectively. 


When it first leaked, the trailer drew controversy for Hathaway's shaky vocal in the song. The negative reactions were trampled with the report that Hooper insisted on his actors to sing live on set instead of lip-syncing to a pre-recorded track. The official trailer shows that Universal Pictures decided to go on with the raw version. 


Based on the Victor Hugo novel, "Les Miserables" opened on Broadway in 1987 and closed in 2003 after more than 6,600 performances. The film will hit U.S. theaters on December 14. 

Sharon Stone Gets Steamy With Boy Toy in Venice Beach



Sharon Stone and her new younger boyfriend got physical during a beach date. The 54-year-old actress and 27-year-old Argentine model Martin Mica could not get their hands off each other as they spent Tuesday, May 29 morning in Venice Beach, Los Angeles.

Stone at first laid chest-down on a beach blanket with him giving her a back massage. She then turned around so that they could kiss. Mica also showed off his skill in doing a handstand, prompting his girlfriend to try the same. The couple continued to be playful throughout the day when he picked her up and spun her around. Ending the day, the couple packed up and stopped by a nearby eatery for lunch.

Stone has three adopted sons and has been married twice. Last year, she denied the rumor that she was once married to George Howe Englund Jr. She reportedly met Mica for the first time last month in a party for Vogue in Brazil. The actress then left the party with him, heading back to her hotel room. 

'Iron Man 3' New Set Photo Confirms the Inclusion of Iron Patriot


"Iron Man 3" will indeed feature a new version of Iron Man suit. Coming Soon has obtained new photos from the Wilmington set of the upcoming Marvel film, showing James Badge Dale donning the Iron Patriot costume. In one of the images, the actor wore the suit complete with the helmet. 


The red, white and blue armor first appeared in 2009's "Dark Avengers" #1 following the events of Secret Invasion. In the comics, Norman Osborn took the technology from Stark Industries and designed the suit to represent the then-recently-deceased Captain America. 


Osborn, who is a "Spider-Man" villain, was declared as a national hero after he stopped a Skrull invasion. He was then tasked to lead a group of government sanctioned-Avengers, but replaced the members with supervillains. 


Since Osborn is one of the characters owned by Sony, he will likely not appear in the third "Iron Man" movie. Meanwhile, Dale, who sported the suit on the film's set, was previously reported to play Eric Savin. In the comics, Savin becomes the cyborg villain Coldblood. 


"Iron Man 3" has been filming in North Carolina with Shane Black serving behind the lens. Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as Tony Stark a.k.a the armored hero, Gwyneth Paltrow returns as Pepper Potts, and Don Cheadle once again portrays Rhodey. 


Walt Disney Pictures will release the superhero action movie in theaters across the U.S. on May 3, 2013. The Mandarin has been widely rumored as the main villain, but it has not been confirmed yet. 

Women-centric films reflect changing society: Vidya Balan


Bollywood star Vidya Balan Wednesday said women-centric films reflected the fact that women were taking centre-stage in various walks of life.
“I think women are taking centre-stage in various walks of life all over the country and cinema is just a reflection of that. I’m happy to be part of the film that is celebrating the new role of women,” she told reporters here.
Vidya Balan, who has won accolades for her roles in ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Kahaani’, was here to receive the Prabha Khaitan Puraskar 2012 from the Calcutta Chamber of Commerce.
She said she wanted to work in Bengali films too. “Satyajit Ray is my favourite Bengali director. I’ll love to work in a Bengali film. But till now, I have not received any offer. But I have taken videos of Bengali films like ‘Antaheen’ and ‘Moner Manush’.”

LeAnn Rimes Went Grocery Shopping in Bikini

LeAnn Rimes is known for her love of bikinis but she was always near water up till Monday, May 28. The singer/actress sported a bright white bikini top while grocery shopping at Ralphs in Calabasas, Calif. 

Rimes turned heads as her bikini was only covered by see-through poncho and denim shorts. She dashed in and out of the store as she made a quick purchase of Memorial Day supplies. She managed to slip a smile for the paparazzi who snapped her pictures while she walked on the parking lot.

Ironically, Rimes told Chelsea Handler in February that she is not going to wear bikini while grocery shopping. At that time she responded to the question whether she was addicted to skimpy bikinis. "I am on the [bleeping] beach, for God's sake," she said about photos of her in bikini. "I'm not like going shopping at the grocery store in a bikini. I'm on the beach and there happen to be photographers who follow us everywhere. It's quite annoying."

Given her Twitter statuses, Rimes and her family got together for a small gathering involving pool. "Happy Memorial Day everyone! Grabbing the little one's and headed for the pool. Fun day ahead!! Hope you all have a fantastic day!!" she tweeted, adding later "Don't paparazzi take memorial day off?! Geez". 

Justin Bieber Could Face 6 Months in Jail If Convicted of Battery


Investigation into Justin Bieber battery case stemming from his altercation with a paparazzo over the Memorial Day weekend is still on going. According to TMZ, the Canadian pop singer could face up to 6 months in jail if he is charged and convicted of the alleged crime. 


The investigation is still in early stages, but police reportedly have already decided to refer the case to the L.A. County D.A. for possible criminal prosecution, which is quite common for high-profile cases. They are now seeking to question the "Boyfriend" hitmaker and all potential witnesses. 


Bieber and his camp remained mum on the matter and so did his girlfriend Selena Gomez who was with him during the altercation. Instead, he released a brand new single called "Die in Your Arms" and jetted off to Europe for a so-called "PHASE 1 of operation secret concerts!" 


"Gonna focus on the important stuff. the music," so Bieber recently tweeted. Without mentioning the scuffle, Gomez, meanwhile, wrote, "THANKS YOU SO MUCH to my fans for always protecting me and being there for me. I can't thank you guys enough. I'm sorry I had to rush out. Love you guys." 


Bieber went to a movie date with Gomez at The Commons in Calabasas, California before having a confrontation with the paparazzo at a parking lot outside the building. When police arrived at the scene earlier, the couple had already driven away. 


He is named a suspect in the case. Any witness who has information about the incident that occurred on Sunday, May 27 is asked to contact detectives at (818) 878-1808. Anonymous tipsters, meanwhile, may contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477). 


According to one legal expert Dmitry Gorin, the key issue in this case is whether or not Bieber acted in self-defense. "Bieber could face a charge if he pushed or hit the photographer and it was not in self-defense," Gorin told LA Times. "But it is not really a jail-time offense." 


Gorin furthermore said Bieber might be a victim of "paparazzi trap." The former deputy district attorney and now a criminal defense lawyer stated, "These guys will often make it impossible for the celebrity to pass," which usually leads the star to confront them. 

Report: Mandarin Will Be Main Villain in 'Iron Man 3' After All


Though "Iron Man 3" has just begun its production in Wilmington, North Carolina for several days, some alleged details from the set of the movie have already been shared online. Among those spoilerish information, there was one report coming from Comic Book that suggested The Mandarin as the lead villain in the third armored hero film.


According to the site, a source "involved with the production" confirmed that the Chinese scientist was "definitely the villain." The source added, "Mandarin had a set of twins that did most of his dirty work for him." Another insider, who claimed to have visited EUE/Screen Gems Studio, stated that "the sets they were building included Chinese storefronts." 


It has been widely speculated that Mandarin will appear in "Iron Man 3" since "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2" helmer Jon Favreau had been setting up to have the Chinese genius as the lead villain in the third film. Nonetheless, ever since Favreau passed on the helming duty to Shane Black, the possibility became somewhat unclear. 


Aside from the possible details about the supervillain, the movie site described the situation near the "Iron Man" threequel set in NC. Multiple sources who had a chance to enter the Cape Fear Club reported to have seen "extras dressed in military uniforms and suits. The extras in suits were described as looking like Secret Service men." 


Additionally, other insiders said that some of the upcoming film's story will take place in Miami, Florida. A source claimed to have spotted "emergency vehicles - police, ambulance and fire-rescue vehicles - emblazoned with logos for the city of Miami and Miami PD being unloaded from production trucks near the closed part of the set last night while crews prepared to begin shooting Iron Man 3 at the Cape Fear Club later today." 


After filming in Wilmington, "Iron Man 3" reportedly will continue its principal photography in China. Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as Tony Stark a.k.a the armored hero, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle returning as Pepper Potts and Rhodey respectively. Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce are also on board to tackle the villainous parts. 


Walt Disney Pictures will unleash the superhero movie in the United States on May 3, 2013. 

Kristen Stewart: I Would Do 'Snow White and the Huntsman' Sequel 'in a Heartbeat'


"Snow White and the Huntsman" is still days away from its theatrical release in the U.S., but Kristen Stewart has already gushed about the possibility of her working on its sequel. Speaking to E! News, the 22-year-old actress admitted that she looks forward to making another "Snow White" movie. 


"I would do it in a heartbeat," the Los Angeles-born beauty enthused. "I know with the people involved it would only be done [because] it's very worthwhile and it's a good movie." She added, "We wouldn't just be cashing in." 


Stewart went on admitting that doing "Snow White and the Huntsman" was not as stressful as working on the "Twilight Saga" film franchise because she didn't have to sign any contract to return to the follow-up movie. "We don't have to do it," she said. "That's the coolest thing. There's no pressure. But to be able to expand on this would be awesome." 


During the chat, the brunette beauty confessed that she wasn't even a fan of Snow White tale when she was younger. "I wasn't into any of the princess ones, which I'm sure isn't much of a surprise," she said. "I loved The Jungle Book and Robin Hood and stuff more like that." 


Though so, the "On the Road" actress revealed that she had watched Snow White movie before she began filming the Rupert Sanders-directed fantasy flick. "I had to rewatch it before we went off to shoot. Not so much as a reference, but more for fun," she admitted. 


"Snow White and the Huntsman" offers a twisted story of the classic Brother Grimm tale. This movie features the fair-skinned princess as a tough woman who fights and defends herself against Evil Queen Ravenna under the guidance of the Huntsman, who was initially hired to kill her. 


Discussing her warrioress character with Interview magazine, Stewart recently said, "There's so much about Snow White has been deprived of in terms of having the proper time to really develop and hone who she is."


"She's put in jail at the beginning of her life, so she's a stunted person," she added. "She has a really idealized concept of what the world is... and there is this debilitating isolation that she feels because she has been locked away in a little cell for seven years. And I can kind of relate to that." 


Also starring Charlize Theron as Ravenna and Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, "Snow White and the Huntsman" will make its way out onto cinemas nationwide on June 1. In anticipation of the film's release, Universal Pictures unveils another clip from the pic via MTV. It shows Snow White revealing her identity as the King's daughter when she's held captive by the Dwarves.

'Dark Knight Rises' Star Tom Hardy Not Looking to Top Heath Ledger as Batman's Enemy


Tom Hardy recently discussed his role as Bane in "The Dark Knight Rises" which often gets compared to Heath Ledger's critically acclaimed performance as The Joker in 2008's "The Dark Knight". Praising Ledger as "brilliant," Hardy admitted that he never sees the late Australian actor as a competitor when it comes to who's the best in portraying Batman's archenemy. 


"No, I don't think absolutely," he told Collider when asked if he has any apprehension for being the guy that would follow Ledger's Joker. "That would be putting myself in a competition with somebody who's clearly brilliant. And it's not a question of whose talent is greater or whose work is greater." 


The British actor continued, "It's just trying to be the best that we can be, rather then trying to be better than somebody else. I'm not trying to be better than somebody else." He insisted, "What he did was amazing. That's that. I've got a part I've got to play, and I want to play my part." 


The Heath Ledger comparison aside, Hardy recalled the moment when he was first cast as Bane. The 34-year-old actor admitted that he wasn't really familiar with the character at that time. "I had no immediate knowledge of the world of Batman at all. I'm quite incubated," he opened up. 


Hardy confessed that he first started to learn about Bane after he won the coveted role. "I just keep myself and my dog. He's not with me anymore. And if something comes in, it's always a neat experience. So I started when I first got the part," he said. 


On having to wear Bane's costume, Hardy shared, "Hot. It's very, very, very hot. Yeah. We're all getting very hot." He said, "You think about the lads that are out in Afghanistan and Baghdad, and you think about the kit they have to wear, well then it's actually not that bad, is it? But it is hot. It's hard to breathe." 


Slated for a July 20 release in the United States, "The Dark Knight Rises" will see Bane arriving in Gotham City and forcing Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent's crimes. Directed by Christopher Nolan, the highly anticipated film also stars Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon. 

Lady GaGa to Put Together Something Special for Indonesian Fans

Last Monday, May 21, GaGa posted a tweet that suggested she's willing to tone down her performance to get the go-ahead from the Indonesians. "If the show does go on as scheduled, I will perform the BTWBall alone," so she wrote. However, her manager Troy Carter insisted that the singer will perform her show "as it is" during the annual Music Matters conference in Singapore days later.

"We play the show as it is, it's a very specific show to a very specific audience," Carter said on May 24, as quoted by Singapore's Straits Times newspaper. "Truth be told, she's not up there nude, she's not doing anything provocative for the sake of being provocative."
