Cameron Diaz showed off her 'twerking' skills during an appearance on America's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (23Apr14) when she danced with an actor dressed in a panda costume. The sporty actress also took part in a fun game of "rollergolf", as she raced host Jimmy Fallon around the studio to complete a mini golf course on rollerskates.
Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton were forced to stop skinny dipping together in between takes on new movie The Other Woman after paparazzi discovered their secret dipping spot.
The actresses went for a nude swim together while filming in the Bahamas, and they had so much fun splashing around naked it was decided they should make it a daily thing. But they had to cover up when photographers turned up on the beach.
Upton tells Live! with Kelly and Michael, "We went skinny dipping in the Bahamas... The next day they (paparazzi) came and we had to stop, which was a real joy kill (sic)." But the sexy supermodel-turned-actress insists she will be swimming naked again, adding, "Skinny dipping is the best thing ever, why wouldn't we go skinny dipping?"
"I don't believe in antiperspirant. It's really bad for you. I haven't used it for almost 20 years. You're stinky, because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in." Cameron Diaz urges fans to ditch the deodorant.
Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi will compose the score of a new TV series. The Icelandic rocker and artist Alex Somers have been recruited to create a soundtrack for Manhattan, a drama focusing on the 1940s race to build an atomic bomb.
This is the first small screen project for Jonsi, who previously served as composer for Cameron Crowe's 2011 film We Bought a Zoo, a score which Somers produced.
Jonsi and Somers have been collaborating since 2003, and are best known for their side project Riceboy Sleeps.
Actress Drew Barrymore has given birth to her second child. The Charlie's Angels star and her husband Will Kopelman welcomed a daughter, a sibling for 19-month-old Olive, on Tuesday (22Apr14).
A statement issued to People.com reads: "Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman. Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!"
The couple wed in 2012 and celebrated the tot's impending birth on 12 April (14) with a baby shower attended by pals including Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon.
"It's exhausting to try to be taken seriously, but I'm willing to commit to that. I'm willing to fight." Kate Upton has spoken out about her struggle to land acting roles because of her catwalk background.
Actress Cameron Diaz has opened up about her family's financial struggles when she was a child, insisting the experience taught her to be sensible with her wealth later in life. The Charlie's Angels star was raised in Long Beach, California with her elder sister and her parents, and was taught the importance of hard work early in life as her family was far from wealthy.
However, Diaz insists her thrifty upbringing did not prevent her having a happy childhood, telling Britain's Stella magazine, "I had amazing parents, they were awesome. We weren't privileged - very much the opposite. My family would collect (soda) cans to turn in for extra money, because $20 (£12.50) meant something to us. But we were very happy."
Her experiences as a child also helped her avoid the lavish spending many other A-list stars are famous for, as she only spends her money on things that matter, saying, "I come from a frugal upbringing so I'm not just going to throw my money away. I love to be close to my family and friends, so I spend money on plane tickets, having feasts, buying a ton of groceries and cooking, or going out for an amazing meal, knowing I don't worry about how much the bill costs."
Leading authors Sir Terry Pratchett and Philip Pullman are among the notable figures who have signed an open letter to U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron in protest after the politician branded Britain a "Christian country". Cameron hit the headlines earlier this month (Apr14) when he insisted Britain should "more confident" about its status as a country with a deep Christian history ahead of the Easter celebrations over the weekend (19-20Apr14).
Some critics dismissed the statement as a vote-winning ploy, and now a list of leading academics and writers have spoken out against his claims, insisting the comments have "negative consequences" for the country.
In the open letter, Pratchett, Pullman, performer Tim Minchin and many others have accused the British leader of fuelling "alienation and division in our society".
The missive adds: "Britain has been shaped for the better by many pre-Christian, non-Christian, and post-Christian forces. We are a plural society with citizens with a range of perspectives, and we are a largely non-religious society."
Actor Neil Patrick Harris turned the air blue while responding to a heckler during his Broadway show. The How I Met Your Mother star appears as a transgender glam rocker in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the cult musical written by John Cameron Mitchell.
During a recent performance one fan was unable to contain her love for the actor, interrupting the performance by shouting out, "I love you Neil!"
Unperturbed, Harris responded with a foul-mouthed retort, replying, "I'm doing something up here, motherf**ker!"
According to New York Post gossip column Page Six the actor's response was met with a round of applause from the audience.
Rob Lowe is nothing if not candid. In promoting his new book, Love Life (the follow-up to 2011's Stories I Only Tell My Friends), Lowe has been espousing his opinions on subjects as diverse as the relative merits of Justin Bieber and big government, as well as re-enacting his awkward kissing scenes with Jewel while shooting the short-lived TV show The Lyon's Den.
One other revelation that came out of the book — which largely features stories about his wife and sons — is that Lowe feels as though he's been typecast because of his good looks.
"I've been told, as I'm sure others have been countless times, that the way I look precludes me from playing a cop or a doctor or a regular guy," the actor told Fox News. “'A PTA father would never look like that!' Meanwhile I am a PTA father but I've never been precluded from playing an arrogant, rich prick. So what does that tell you?"
There is no denying that the former teen heartthrob and Brat Pack member was, is and probably always will be an extremely attractive man. His looks helped him overcome everything from a sex tape scandal (before that was fashionable) — something Lowe will parody with an appearance in this summer's Jason Segal-Cameron Diaz comedy Sex Tape — to one of the most reviled moments in Oscars' history when he sang a cringe-inducing duet with Snow White.
The reality is that all actors are typecast in some ways based on their looks. Film and television is a visual medium and there's no escaping the fact that a person's appearance plays a role in that. He might not be in the running for some of the roles that Paul Giamatti or Patton Oswalt might play, but they're not going to be in the running for a whole lot more roles that an actor with Lowe's physical gifts would be.
Still, Oswalt's Young Adult costar Charlize Theron has proven that being gorgeous doesn’t have to stop an actor from getting substantial roles. Her physical transformation for Monster was convincing enough that audiences were willing to put aside the fact that she was still more attractive than the real Aileen Wuornos, the serial killer on whose life it was based. The same was true for Halle Berry in Monster's Ball. Men considered just as beautiful as Lowe like George Clooney and Matt Damon have also downplayed their inherent good looks for roles (Syriana and The Informant! come to mind).
In fact, it's easier for most actors to do that — slide into a better looking version of a "normal" person — than it is for actors like Giamatti or the late Philip Seymour Hoffman to be seen as leading men, no matter how talented they are as performers.
While it's true that Lowe earned his way in Hollywood by virtue of his matinee idol good looks, that doesn't mean that it has to continue to define him… just as it hasn't always defined Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio. If he wants it to change, then he needs to continue taking roles like the creepy plastic surgeon in Steven Soderbergh's Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra.
Lowe has been around long enough that he knows the game and how to work around any stigma that might be attached to his being handsome. It's incumbent on him to fight for a role if he really wants to play it… even if it is just a PTA dad. That's the nature of Hollywood for all actors, not just the pretty ones. It's really hard to find a way that Lowe's looks have been a true hindrance to him, and when he's playing someone's ridiculously attractive grandfather in 15 years, we won't feel bad for him then either.
