The new Superman movie really was a case of third time lucky for Amy Adams as she unsuccessfully auditioned for the role of Lois Lane twice before finally landing the part of Clark Kent's love interest in the upcoming release. The Doubt star will soon be seen onscreen in Man of Steel opposite Henry Cavill, and she admits playing the intrepid reporter was a dream come true after failing to win over previous directors with her talents.
She explains, "The first time there was a version that never got made with Matt Bomer, who's amazing... and then there was the (director) Bryan Singer version (Superman Returns); I auditioned for that one and I didn't get cast... and then, this one, I auditioned and I got cast.
"You'd think I would have learned... but I have enough Lois in me that I was like, 'I'm gonna keep trying...' I would have been, like, 75 and still auditioning."
The role of Lois Lane in 2006's Superman Returns went to Kate Bosworth, who acted opposite Brandon Routh in the title role.
Man of Steel is released later this month (Jun13).

"It has this kind of crazy, evil connotation... I feel like I have a creature now at home, a little magical creature. It's amazing... Jasper's 15 and she loves to sing and dance and she's incredibly talented." Actress Kate Bosworth on the prospect of becoming a stepmother to fiance Michael Polish's teenage daughter.

Moviemaker Katie Aselton almost killed leading lady Lake Bell on the set of new thriller Black Rock because the freezing temperatures the It'S Complicated star had to endure for a chilly lake scene set off her asthma. Aselton, who also co-stars with Bell and Kate Bosworth in the film, admits she planned the shoot for June, so the cast could benefit from the summer sun - but most days were overcast, misty and very cold.
And the actress suffered more than most as she tried to brave the low temperatures.
Aselton tells WENN, "It was supposed to be sunny and it would rain, the fog was so intense you couldn't see where the characters were. The temperatures were super low and the water is as cold as we claim it to be in the story and colder.
"I almost killed Lake with tides going in and coming out! She went into a 24-hour panic asthma attack because of the cold temperatures. It was scary so anything after that was a win because she was alive!"
The cast and crew also had to tackle bug bites and spiders as they roamed around the woodland setting naked.
Aselton adds, "We were gonna close the set for privacy but we literally had a four-person crew. We just did it (got naked) and it was cold... Everybody could see it (naked body) now; the bugs certainly had.
"We were sitting bare-bottomed on the wooded ground. Initially we were supposed to be sitting on a blanket but we lost it, so there were a lot of ticks and spiders."

Actress Hayden Panettiere is following in the footsteps of Zooey Deschanel and Kate Bosworth after signing on as the face of a new cotton campaign. The Heroes star will appear in upcoming ads for Cotton Inc. and she had recorded a country version of the campaign theme song.
Marketing executive Ric Hendee insists the actress is the perfect celebrity ambassador for the company: "For this commercial we wanted a celebrity with an all-American, girl-next-door quality. Hayden had the look and the country cross-over sound we were looking for."

It won't be Bosworth's first foray into fashion design - she also has a hand in jewellery range JewelMint.

It's not that Movie 43 is shocking or "edgy " or whatever any of the writers or directors would like to convince you. If you want to actually puke or cry or be shocked you can go to Rotten.com like the rest of us Internet miscreants. The Cinema of Transgression films by Nick Zedd and Richard Kern have more artistic value than Movie 43 and are generally more interesting. Which is saying a lot because Zedd's films can get pretty boring. You can only see Annie Sprinkle make out with a man who's listed as Ray the Burn Victim for so long... although I feel terrible for writing because everyone needs love. Sorry Ray.
Movie 43 has 12 directors and 17 writers credited with this anthology of shorts modeled according to producers Peter Farrelly and Charlie Wessler in the spirit of Kentucky Fried Movie. Surprisingly none of those writers or directors go by the name Alan Smithee. It's not even totally clear which were written and directed by whom; the production notes are "hilarious first hand [sic] accounts from those who were a part of and were witnesses to the creation of MOVIE 43."
Kate Winslet and Halle Berry and Richard Gere were tricked into participating which is supposed to make their "outrageous" shorts all the more titillating. One of the larger problems of Movie 43 is that it relies on this handful of mega-stars and on our reactions to them and their off-screen personas all in lieu of genuine comedy onscreen. Would it be funny if some schmuck on YouTube played a Steve Jobs-like character who didn't understand why his company's iBabe music player — which looks like a naked woman but has a coolant system with a fan between its legs — was mangling users? No it wouldn't. And it's definitely not any funnier because it's Richard Gere playing him.
What's most offensive about Movie 43 isn't the scatological humor but how shoddily the whole thing was put together. (To be honest I did nearly walk out during the Anna Faris/Chris Pratt short about her desire to be pooped on. I also nearly barfed during Salo. Because poop.) In quite a few of the shorts half of the actors' heads are cut out of frame. Their heads are literally cut off of the screen in a movie that was professionally filmed by accredited cinematographers. Now it could have been the theater projecting the film that was having the problem but that's not really my concern. My concern was mainly that a handful of paying customers (including myself) were sitting through a studio movie where the top of actors' heads aren't in frame.
The self-referential wraparound for the movie is embarrassing for everyone involved including the viewer. Dennis Quaid plays a disheveled crazy writer who holds a studio exec (Greg Kinnear) hostage until the exec agrees to buy his movie pitch. His pitch is the series of shorts which the exec obviously thinks is a terrible idea... because it is. This is like adding insult to injury because the creators know what they've made is crap. Even the studio exec that they themselves wrote thinks the premise of Movie 43 is crap and has to be held at gunpoint to bring the idea to his boss. This idea that you will have wasted 90 minutes of your life on — minutes you could have spent watching YouTube videos of people squeezing their own cysts or having botflies removed from their bodies or yes making out with burn victims.
Complain all you like about stodgy critics who have no sense of humor and don't get "the kids" today and all that but it seems that Peter Farrelly and the group of people who forced this towards theaters (with little to no help from most of the stars or writers or directors) are the ones who are completely out of touch. With anything. Including humor.'s>

While the party begins at the Golden Globes, it's not until after the last award is handed out that the real antics begin. Everyone who is anyone in Hollywood leaves the awards dinner and heads upstairs at the Beverly Hills Hilton to hit a string of ultra exclusive after-parties. And on Sunday night, the parties really got going. Mel Gibson and Lucy Liu were spotted tearing up the dance floor at the HBO shindig; Al Roker gave Giada De Laurentiis a piggyback ride at the Warner Bros. party; and Heidi Klum chowed down on french fries at the Weinstein event.
The stars like to let loose and, occasionally, make fools of themselves. But, unfortunately for them, what happens at the Golden Globes after-parties doesn't stay at the Golden Globes after-parties. These are the secrets from past Globes parties that you probably have never heard before.
Six Golden Globe After-Party Secrets
1. Lindsay Lohan is a party crasher. In 2012, Lohan pulled a stunt and crashed the Weinstein party. "She was not invited. She just walked on in. Everyone was like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe she just walked in," a party-goer who saw the whole event go down tells Hollywood.com. "She just came through the back and they let her in." Security didn't realize that Lohan wasn't on the guest list. "The security, when they see who it is, they just let them in," the source says. "It's Lindsay Lohan. They're not going to say no. They're assuming she's invited."
2. Certain actors like to hook up with journalists. "I've see a journalist go home with a celebrity," another insider tells us. "That tends to be a trend." And certain celebrity A-listers have a reputation as ladies' men. "You can spot the playboys," the insider says. "Wilmer Valderrama is known to be a playboy; Jeremy Piven is known to be a playboy; [and] Adrian Grenier, back in the day, he was known as a playboy.
3. Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard's put on a major PDA show. "It was when they were first starting to date and I wasn't sure if they had come out as a couple yet," the insider says. "Kate and Alexander were just going at in the main room. Not groping, but just hardcore making out." They were oblivious to the party around them. "They didn't care who was in front of them," the insider says. "They were just making out."
4. Ricky Gervais is pretty full of himself. "[One year] when he hosted, he held court. He had a table to himself and people were approaching him like he was the king," the insider says. "He wasn't leaving his table, people were going to him. He wasn't getting up." In not-so-surprising news, our insider adds, "He was kind of a d*ck."
5.The "rat-faced people of television" (as Amy Poehler and Tina Fey referred to themselves Sunday) party harder than movie actors. "When the caliber of celebrity is less, they tend to have more fun and let their hair down," the insider says. "You're going to find that the TV stars know how to party and have more fun than the big movie stars."
6. Where do people go for the after-after-party? Our insider says the party usually winds up at the Chateau Marmont. "The ones at the Hilton can get fun because people are already loose, but once you're out for that long anyway, most of them continue the night away," the insider says.
For the Oscars, our insider says it's a bit different and that people usually wind up going to an infamous after-party thrown each year by one particular agent who will remain unnamed. And it's at this party that people get really crazy. "[The agent has] a big party at his house in the hills, and you [have] to get a security code or a secret code to get in," the insider says. "I was there in 2008, and it was the sh*t. Everybody was there. Every big name was there in young Hollywood and not behaving."
