Robert Pattinson uncontrollably sweats when filming sex scenes because he is so nervous.
The Twilight hunk reveals he has issues with excessive perspiration while getting intimate on camera and the problem worsened when he shot upcoming drama Maps to the Stars and had to film a sex scene with co-star Julianne Moore inside the back of a limousine.
He tells Esquire magazine, "It was the first time I met Julianne. And that was the first scene I shot. It was that part of the scene, too, the sex part... I noticed I was sweating. Like really heavy sweat... I remember trying to catch the drops as they fell onto her back. It was weird. Huge splashing drops. At one point she turned around and said, 'Are you alright?'"
Maps to the Stars will hit cinemas in the autumn (14).
Shameless star Tyler Jacob Moore has been cast as Prince Hans, from Disney film Frozen, in the upcoming series of fairytale TV show Once Upon A Time. Actor John Rhys-Davies will provide the voice for animated character Pabbie, the leader of the trolls. The fourth series will air in the U.S. later this year (14).
"I would need a warehouse the size of North Wales to keep all the things that people think I would have taken from the set. Charities write to me asking for things for auction but I don't have anything. I don't have the guns and gadgets and none of the cars." Former Bond star Sir Roger Moore never kept any props from the 007 movies.
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!
Director Michael Moore is single again after finalising his divorce from his producer wife Kathleen Glynn. The Fahrenheit 9/11 filmmaker moved to end the 21-year marriage in June, 2013, and the split was made official in Antrim County Circuit Court in Michigan on Tuesday (22Jul14).
The couple wed in 1991. They have no children together.
Funnyman Will Ferrell is to be feted at the Deauville American Film Festival in France for his contribution to comedy. The Anchorman star joins Jessica Chastain and director James Cameron as honourees at the annual event.
Organisers of the festival, which celebrates American cinema, will show a retrospective of Ferrell's work throughout its run in September (14).
Festival director Bruno Barde calls Ferrell "a king of comedy" and adds, "The Deauville American Film Festival is, as its name suggests, the festival of all kinds of cinema, of every genre, and therefore considers nothing off-limits... Zany, caustic, satirical, off-the-wall and over-the-top, he is all that and more - a pure delight for the audience."
Previous Deauville honourees include Susan Sarandon and Julianne Moore.
Comic book icon Alan Moore is urging fans to boycott Dwayne Johnson's new Hercules movie - because it's "wretched". Outspoken Moore believes it's shameless for director Brett Ratner to release the film so soon after fellow comic book creator Steve Moore's death.
Moore, no relation, created the Hercules: The Thracian War comic series, which inspired the new movie. He died earlier this year (Mar14).
Alan Moore tells BleedingCool.com, "I would ask that anybody out there who gives a damn about Steve Moore or his legacy not go to see this wretched film. It is the last thing that Steve would've wanted. And I cannot un-recommend it too highly or anybody involved in it. I think it is absolutely shameful... There are also more positive elements of Steve's legacy."
Moore claims his namesake found out about plans to turn his comic books into a movie a few months before his death.
He says, "(He told me), 'I've just written them (comic book bosses) an angry email asking why I wasn't consulted in this and when I can expect the something like $15,000... I haven't heard back from them. There's just a deafening silence."
According to CinemaBlend.com, Steve Moore's contract with Radical Comics bosses, who sold the film rights, made it clear he would have no involvement or money if a movie adaptation of his comics was made.
Alan Moore adds, "The only consolation was that his name wouldn't be going on it."
Dwayne Johnson hits the big screen as Hercules in America on Friday (25Jul14).

Actor Zach Braff has denied rumours he's dating Taylor Swift, insisting he has sworn off dating "super-famous girls" after becoming a tabloid target while romancing singer/actress Mandy Moore.
Speculation recently surfaced that the former Scrubs star and the serial celebrity dater had become an item, but in an interview with U.S. shock jock Howard Stern on Monday (21Jul14), Braff quickly shot down the story. Calling the Love Story singer "a sweet girl" the actor explained he has only met Swift twice and romance reports are nothing but "Internet bulls**t".
Braff, who recently split from his model girlfriend Taylor Bagley after five years together, revealed he vowed never to date another celebrity after breaking up with Saved star Moore in 2006. He told Stern, "When you date another famous person, that's when they really hound you. That's when the paparazzi are outside your house and that's when you can't ride your bike through Manhattan because they follow you."
"When my relationship with Mandy ended, (my publicist) said, 'I'm going to give you a hint that you should know. If you don't date these 25 girls, your life will be so much easier.' And she was kind of exaggerating because there's more than those 25 girls, but in so many words, if you can, don't date other famous people because then all the tabloids pretty much leave you alone."
He added, "I could walk down the street, I don't get followed. Well, if you're going to hook up with a famous girl, that might be fun for your ego, but you don't want to be out in public dating a famous girl because then they follow you everywhere you go."
And Braff admitted he'd hate to have pal Harry Styles' life, adding, "He can't walk two f**king feet or a crowd forms and the paparazzi forms (sic)... He's the sweetest kid, but I don't want that existence."
Ironically, Styles briefly dated Taylor Swift at the end of 2102.
Actress Jessica Chastain will be feted at the upcoming Deauville American Film Festival in France in recognition of her impressive career . The Zero Dark Thirty star has been named an honouree at the annual festival dedicated to American cinema, which will take place from 5 to 14 September (14).
Festival director Bruno Barde has praised Chastain's work in a statement, which reads: "The tribute is a token of our affection, admiration, recognition and esteem for the talent of the recipient... We have been paying tribute to those actresses who embody the cinema of today and who will form the legacy of tomorrow.
"When we first discovered Jessica Chastain, we had the definite feeling that here was someone special on-screen. Through her successive roles, she has confirmed her emotional capacity to grab the limelight. We salute her grace and talent and the beauty of the truth she brings to her performance."
Previous Deauville honourees include Julianne Moore, Annette Bening, Susan Sarandon, Robin Wright and Naomi Watts.
This isn't Chastain's first recognition from Deauville organisers - in 2011, she received the New Hollywood award for her work in Take Shelter, which also won the festival's Grand Prize.

The Beatles' influence has touched every inch of modern pop music, leaving an indelible mark on film and television... which is pretty good for four working-class mop tops from Liverpool. Director Ron Howard will be the next to immortalize the band onscreen, in a new documentary that will explore the group's early years, when they still toured their music across the globe. Surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison will contribute to the feature, which will trace the band's humble beginnings at the Caven Club in Liverpool, their tours through Germany, all the way through the group's final public performance in San Francisco's Candlestick park. But before we get around to seeing Howard's tribute to the Beatles, we're inclined to look back upon some of the best musical contributions they made to movies and TV.
Bowling for ColumbineThe last half of the John Lennon-penned "Happiness Is a Warm Gun," which may or may not be about heroin, serves as the perfect soundtrack for Michael Moore's anti-gun manifesto Bowling for Columbine. It's used in a terrifying sequence that shows just how gun crazy some Americans are, and as the song ramps up, the sequence escalates to a violent and unnerving conclusion that still has us wincing all these years later.
"Baby, You're a Rich Man" in The Social NetworkWhat better way to end a biopic about one of the richest men in the universe than this cut from Magical Mystery Tour. It's so fitting, it's almost like it was made expressly to cap off David Fincher's tale of billion dollar grudges.
"You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" in HelpWe couldn't, in good faith, compile a list of the best Beatles moments in film and television without including a sequence from the Fab Four's own filmography. We chose "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" the film Help for sheer oddness of the sequence. Plus, it's just a great song in general.
"In My Life" in Little ManhattanThe best thing about the Beatles is how timeless their music is. "In My Life," a song about losing and gaining friendships through the slippage of time, is the perfect piece of music to accompany the story about a preteen losing his first love in modern day New York.
"A Little Help From My Friends" on The Wonder YearsJohn Cocker's throaty rendition of "A Little Help from My Friends" graces the title sequence of The Wonder Years, and it may be the best cover song ever recorded. It's even better than the original Beatles tune, and it just makes The Wonder Years a better show. Nowadays, we can't even look at Fred Savage without hearing Cocker's raspy croon blasting through our heads at full volume.
"Come Together" in A Bronx TaleIn a scene from Robert De Niro's directoral debut, a pair of Italian mafiosos rough up a couple of unruly bikers that stop into their bar while "Come Together" spills out of a jukebox. Thanks to the '60s aesthetic, the song is a perfect addition to the scene.
"Hey Jude" in The Royal TenenbaumsFilmmakers like Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese are often celebrated for their use of pop music in film, but Wes Anderson's musical touches in his work are just as poignant. His use of a beautifully orchestrated version of "Hey Jude" in 2001's The Royal Tenanbaums is a perfect example of this.
"Twist and Shout" in Ferris Bueller's Day OffWe're still not sure if Ferris Bueller is really a wizard, or if it was just the power of music, but the teen somehow brings the entirety of downtown Chicago to a grinding halt for the musical number to end all musical numbers.
