Zoe Saldana's Crossroads co-star Britney Spears has accidentally let it slip that the mum-to-be is expecting twins. Speculation surfaced this summer (14) that the Avatar beauty and her husband, Italian artist Marco Perego, are preparing for a double bundle of joy, but Saldana has been tight-lipped about her pregnancy, only confirming that she is indeed with child.
But following an impromptu reunion with her one-time co-star at Los Angeles' LAX airport on Monday (08Sep14), Spears revealed the actress has a double delight on the way.
As the singer arrived in New York City to debut her lingerie line at New York Fashion Week, she was asked by Entertainment Tonight if she would ever do another film with Saldana, and her answer revealed the actress' exciting news.
The pop star said, "Who knows? That’s a very good idea. But she's pregnant with twins right now. So I'm sure she's got a huge future ahead of her."
With two young sons only one year apart, the Toxic hitmaker offered some advice to Saldana, revealing she told her, "You're not ready. You don't know what you're in for."
Actress Hayden Panettiere has confirmed she is pregnant by nominating her "unborn child" for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The Nashville star finally acknowledged she and fiance Wladimir Klitschko are preparing for their first child on Wednesday (20Aug14) by posting footage of pal and co-star Derek Hough tipping a bucket of freezing water over her on Instagram.com.
Panettiere prepared for the cold blast by nominating country singer Kacey Musgraves, her fiance and her "unborn child" to take the challenge next. The actress follows in the footsteps of Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana, who also confirmed she is pregnant in an Ice Bucket Challenge video posted on Tuesday (19Aug14).
She opted to dodge the challenge set her by director James Gunn, and her husband Marco Perego agreed to take the plunge in her place. Celebrities including Panettiere's Nashville co-star Connie Britton, Robert Pattinson, Emily Blunt and Adam Sandler all recently took the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise cash and awareness for charity the ALS Association.
"Thank you! Gracias! Grazie! To all my fans for your love, support and good vibes. Your kind words give me strength and keep my focused on what's positive and good about what I do as an artist. My Partner and Family also thank you. Love you tons!" Pregnant actress Zoe Saldana is thankful for her fans' kind words as she prepares for motherhood with her husband Marco Perego.
Zoe Saldana's husband Marco Perego has a tattoo of his wife's face on his arm. The pair was spotted out in New York on Tuesday night (29Jul14) at a screening of Saldana's new movie, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and Perego's inked art was clearly visible. The couple is currently expecting its first child.
Actress Zoe Saldana drew inspiration for her Guardians Of The Galaxy character's fighting style from a friend's art project. The Avatar star plays alien Gamora in the film and explains when she first took on the role she wanted to give the character a more unique fighting style after seeing an art project about a matador bullfighter.
She tells U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America, "We were having dinner with one of (my husband's) art colleagues and she was showing us her latest art expo and it was about a bullfighter and she was taping this bullfighter dancing in slow motion the dance of death, sort of seducing the bull, and it was the most graceful type of dancing.
"It was around the time I was pondering whether or not I was going to do Guardians and I thought, 'Oh my God, I should and she should totally be a bullfighter instead of just a martial artist'."
Actress Zoe Saldana is pregnant with twins, according the latest U.S. reports. On Wednesday (23Jul14), a publicist for the Avatar beauty confirmed longrunning rumours suggesting the 36 year old is with child, and now multiple sources tell editors at Eonline.com she and her husband, Italian artist Marco Perego, are expecting a double bundle of joy.
One insider says, "She's thrilled!"
Saldana, who is said to be around three months into her pregnancy, wed Perego in secret last summer (13).
Ted Nugent has attacked Idaho casino bosses who have axed his upcoming show at the Worley venue over his outspoken views. Coeur d’Alene Casino owners cited the rocker's "history of racist and hate-filled remarks" when they pulled his upcoming date (04Aug14), and now Nugent is firing back, claiming he has become a victim of America's liberals over his anti-Barack Obama and pro-hunting beliefs.
He tells Radio.com, "They literally have an army assigned to destroy Ted Nugent. To call me a racist is a clear act of desperation. Because everybody knows I’m not a racist!
"My bass player Johnny Gunnel happens to be a black guy. My bass player Marco Mendoza was born in Mexico! Are you kidding me? I pay tribute to Martin Luther King in my songs, I’ve always said my music is a direct result of Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, and all the black musical heroes of my life."
Further attacking what he calls the "sick, stoned, hygiene-challenged (director) Michael Moore fans", the Cat Scratch Fever rocker adds, "They call in and complain that I’m a racist, they claim I’m a paedophile, that I dodged the draft. They call all the promoters, they call all the venues, they call all my sponsors, every day. Meanwhile, what am I doing? I’m going to rock my a** off tonight. And tomorrow night. And the next night."
Nugent is currently touring to promote his new album Shutup & Jam!

There are dozens of superhero movies in theaters, in the middle of filming and still in development, but the biggest and most exciting of all is 2015’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thanks to the track record of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the massive, rippling consequences of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, fans are dying to find out more about the next adventure of Cap, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk. Entertainment Weekly was kind enough to oblige with their annual Comic-Con preview issue. First, they unveiled Ultron on the cover, giving everyone a look at the super-powerful, hyper-intelligent AI that the Avengers will be facing this time around. If his appearance reminds you of a particular genius/billionaire/playboy/superhero, that’s because it’s supposed to.
Turns out that Ultron is actually a creation of Iron Man himself, which director Joss Whedon revealed in an interview. What was intended as a kind of AI sidekick for the team backfired with spectacular results, creating the villain you see before you, and forcing the Avengers to face the only thing more difficult to fight than an army of teleporting aliens. Whedon’s reveal is the first major hint we’ve gotten as to the plot of the film and how it will handle the aftermath of The Winter Soldier, so we thought we’d break down everything that EW revealed in order to determine how much we actually know about the next Avengers movie, and how much we’re still guessing at.
What We Know: As we saw in Iron Man 3, the Avengers are having a difficult time dealing with the consequences of saving the world. Now that SH.I.E.L.D. is no more, they have to take care of every threat themselves. So Tony, in an attempt to give the team some time to recover, invents Ultron, a “self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones to battle evildoers instead.” Of course, the whole thing ends up backfiring and creating perhaps the biggest threat to humanity the world has ever seen.
According to Whedon, Ultron isn’t evil so much as he is lacking in human emotions. Once he realizes that the biggest threat to life on Earth is humanity itself, he decides to eradicate it in order to – in a roundabout, overly-logical way – save the planet. Unfortunately for the Avengers, since Ultron is so self-aware and constantly learning, he figures out that he’s not just a robot, which would be easily destroyed, but a computer program capable of uploading itself to the Cloud and then replicating in increasingly more complex and powerful forms. Basically, they’re keeping everything that made Ultron such a long-standing, formidable villain, but reworking his origin somewhat for the modern age.
What We Don’t: Also featured in EW’s preview are the twins (the Marvel Cinematic Universe can’t actually call them mutants), Petyr and Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, and although we know that they’ll play a significant role in the film, we don’t know if they’ll be on the Avengers’ side or on Ultron’s. They were introduced in a mid-credits scene during The Winter Soldier in the custody of Baron von Strucker, and the magazine seems to hint that they might not be the good guys. We're curious as to how they manage to join up with the Avengers in the first place, and how much of a hand Baron von Strucker will have in that introduction...
We'll have to keep speculating about that, since we also know nothing about how big of a role Strucker himself will play in the new film. Casting Thomas Kretschmann to play him seems to suggest that he’s going to be very important very soon – if you’ll recall, Thanos didn’t get an official voice until recently – but most of the Avengers’ focus so far seems to be on Ultron. Although, considering the fact that this film seems to get a new villain every time we look away, that's proabbly a good thing. And speaking of Thanos, we’re still not sure if he’ll be making an appearance in Age of Ultron, or if he’ll be content to just torment the Guardians of the Galaxy for now.
What We Suspect: The other new addition to the cast, besides Quicksilver and the Scarlet witch, is Vision, who in the comics is an android created by Ultron in order to enact revenge on his creator. However, a few months ago, it was reported that Paul Bettany, who voices Tony Stark’s AI butler, JARVIS, was doing makeup tests for the character, which led some to speculate that JARVIS will be turning to the dark side. EW’s reveal of Ultron’s new origin seems to fit those suspicions quite well. After all, if one AI that Tony has created has turned evil, what’s stopping the other one from switching allegiances as well? And even if Tony isn’t the reason that JARVIS has gone bad, it would make perfect sense for Ultron to turn him against their creator. Granted, we could be wrong, and they could have just been using Bettany as a temporary stand-in, as the studio refuted, but this is all lining up rather nicely, so we’re going to trust our gut on this one.
Now all we need is for someone to confirm whether or not Sam Wilson and Falcon will join up with the team, and we can really start to get excited.
