Another day, another Justin Bieber scandal. In the past, many of Hollywood’s elite have voiced their negative opinions of the Biebs, but recently Orlando Bloom chose to use his fists instead. Early Wednesday morning, it appears that the Biebs and Bloom were in less of a partying mood, and more of a fighting one. It’s not clear what sparked the fight (as if you need a reason to hit Bieber), but we’re totally #TeamOrlando. Bloom joins the ranks of these other celebrity Bieber-haters.
This funny man first tweeted his sincerest feelings about Bieber back in January:
All jokes aside, Justin Bieber is a piece of shit.
— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) January 23, 2014
When he appeared on Howard Stern's radio show, Rogen elaborated with a story. When Rogen and Bieber were both guests on a German talk show, a member of Bieber's team reached out to Rogen because the pop star wanted to meet him. It wasn’t exactly the meet up he’d expected.
"[...] I went outside to meet him and he was acting like I asked to meet him. It was very nonchalant, 'Yo man. Wassup,' and I was like, 'What the f*ck, I don't give a f*ck about, I don't want to meet you. Don't act all nonplussed to meet me. I didn't want to meet you. I was totally cool not meeting you… But I was like, fine, I wouldn't have said anything, I was like, 'He's a bit of a motherf*cker. Whatever. He's young, the kid's a dick.'"
In 2012, Bell began his hobby of being Justin Bieber's biggest hater, using Twitter as his weapon. At first, the tweets were pretty tame.
I wouldn't randomly bash @katyperry....bieber however lol

It didn't stop there, though. Bell continued poking fun at Bieber’s talent and his "crazy" #beliebers over time. It’s become commonplace in the Twitter world for Bell to shoot off a crack or two about Bieber. But more recently, Bell has unleashed his true and honest hatred for Bieber.
When is someone going to tell this idiot he can't draw.His art is almost as bad as his music. Talentless artless pic.twitter.com/N3xiPFfQNz

Wilde isn’t a fan of how often Bieber is shirtless (same Olivia, same). She took to Twitter last March to rant, “Bieber, put your f*cking shirt on. (unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt.)” She's since deleted this tweet.
The former Saturday Night Live cast member doesn’t have any fond memories from when Bieber hosted the late-night gig. Hader even considers Bieber the worst host in the show's history.
When he appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show, McHale was asked why someone would egg a house. His quick response was, “Because he’s a f*cking idiot.”
In his interview with Men’s Health, Hamm made it apparent that he believes Bieber is a person without any real life skills.
"Look at Bieber or whoever. You’re like, ‘What the fuck, man? What are you doing? Why?’ There’s no one telling those people no, and it’s a shame. Is there a mom or a dad or a really good friend who can say, ‘Hey, shithead!’ You see people in the world and you’re like, ‘Do you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish?’ Life skills are something we’re missing.”
Jon Bon Jovi:
Bon Jovi, whose career spans longer than Bieber’s life, talked to The London Evening Standard about Bieber’s blatant disregard for his fans, showing up anywhere from an hour to two hours late to his concerts.
"Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new. [...] Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool — you’re an asshole. Go to f***in’ work!”
Like some of us, Wilson wanted to look back on the good ol’ Bieber days. We might have separate opinions on what those actually are, however.

Like Drake Bell, Padalecki has no shame in taunting Bieber on Twitter. During the scandalous “Egg-gate,” Padalecki tweeted the star directly.
"Hey @justinbieber, how much are you paying your friend for pretending that it was HIS cocaine, and taking the fall for you?"
Braff was there to tweet what we all really felt when Bieber’s life became a DUI, drag-racing hot mess.
Who amongst us hasn't drag-raced a Lambo in Miami on pills? #FreeBieber

Another tweeter-than-deleter, Biggs once went off on a massive Twitter rant, unleashing some intense feelings about the Biebs.
“Can you beat the c*** out of Bieber? Is that what you can do?”
“Maybe the police kept getting contact highs whenever they went over there?”
“I would get my actual jaguar and smear him in meat when I went to make my citizen’s arrest.”
And of course, the most recent, Orlando Bloom:
Bloom finally did what we’ve all wanted to do, if we’re being honest, and took a swing at Bieber. This may not actually count as a fight, but we’re still going to say Bloom totally won.

Bonus points: Bloom's Lord Of The Rings buddy, Dominic Monaghan, had the best reaction to this situation, ever.

Nobody could have predicted this amidst the Twilight hysteria that started in 2008, but Robert Pattinson is getting some serious indie cred under his belt. Having worked with directors like David Cronenberg, Francis Lewis, and James Gray over the past few years, it's safe to say that Pattinson has made serious strides since his role as Edward Cullen. Next up—a gangsta film with Harmony Korine? Yes, this is real.
Pattinson reached out to the Spring Breakers writer/director some time ago and has since confirmed that Korine wrote a Miami-set gangster movie for him. There are no other details at this time, but with these two names on board, there's already plenty reason to get excited about this project.

Two men have been arrested for allegedly scamming money from Spanish citizens seeking a small role on TV drama Game Of Thrones.
Earlier this month (Jul14), it was announced some of the filming for series five of the fantasy drama, starring Lena Headey, would take place in and around the Spanish city of Seville. Within 24 hours, more than 10,000 citizens had applied to work as extras on the show.
Two men set up a fake website claiming to be the official Spanish casting company's site, and hopefuls were instructed to call a premium-rate telephone number to make their application. Callers were kept on the phone for at least six minutes, at a cost of $13.50 (£7.90), before being given the real casting address.
The men managed to rake in $134,000 (£79,000) a week, according to Spanish police.
A spokesperson says, "The fraudsters, who are based in Ibiza, created a website almost identical to the genuine Game of Thrones site... given the success of the series and the excitement over the forthcoming filming of some episodes in Seville, the number of calls received was very high. It was the perfect hook for a big scam."
Actor Chris Pratt plans to visit sick children while dressed as his superhero character from new movie Guardians Of The Galaxy after taking his costume home when the cameras stopped rolling.
The actor plays the space superhero group's leader Peter Quill/Star-Lord, and dons an iconic red jacket as he attempts to save the world.
In an interview with Panzer TV promoting the film, Pratt reveals he secretly took his costume from the set in order to do good following the movie's release.
He admits, "I stole the jacket and some of the wardrobe so that, if this movie comes out and does what everyone hopes it can, I can follow the example of someone and go visit kids. "If it was a big enough movie, to where it would mean something to a kid who's sick in the hospital - for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them - I'll do that. I think that's awesome, man. That would give me real meaning for this movie, you know?..."
"Right now, it means high profile, cool jobs coming up, big press tour, and all the excitement of it all. But none of that really means anything. The coolest things would be that my son can one day see this, and that maybe I can go affect some kids in a positive way; be a good role model for them."
Guardians of the Galaxy, which also stars Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista and Vin Diesel, opens on both sides of the Atlantic on Friday (01Aug14), and studio bosses have already announced a sequel, which is expected to hit cinemas in 2017.
For all that the Internet has talked about Guardians of the Galaxy and Boyhood and each of the movies that has, at some point in the past few months, been dubbed the “most anticipated film of the year,” there really only is one film that earns the title in earnest: Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. It’s his first film since wrapping up the Batman trilogy, Matthew McConaughey’s first film since winning an Oscar, and it has a plot that’s more tightly guarded than whatever’s happening on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. There’s no way that any other film released in 2014 can hold a candle to Interstellar.
Look, it doesn’t really matter what we write here, because we both know that you’re too busy watching the trailer to find out what Nolan pictures when he imagines outer space to actually care what the article says. We could try and give you’re a brief overview of the plot (Earth has run out of resources and the only solution to solving the crisis is to send McConaughey up into space); we could try and posit some theories about who Jessica Chastain is playing (although, let’s be real, there’s only one logical option); we could talk a bit about the first glimpse we’ve gotten at McConaughey’s fellow astronauts (all very good looking, all very philosophical); we could even break down the poetry that Michael Caine recites in voice over to look for clues (it’s Dylan Thomas, for what it’s worth), but it doesn’t really matter.
That’s the thing about being the hands-down most anticipated film of the year: it doesn’t matter what anyone has to say about it, as long as it’s exciting. And while the first teaser trailer was a bit underwhelming sepia-toned for all the hype that Interstellar has received, this one delivers on all fronts. It’s explosive, beautifully-shot, packed with emotion and effects and just enough plot details to keep things intriguing without giving everything away. It’s epic. It’s enticing. It made us feel things.
But most importantly, it just makes you want to see the movie even more. So, sorry Richard Linklater and Chris Pratt – this year has really just been a countdown to Interstellar. Only four more months to go until November 4.
"I'm not exaggerating when I say it's one of the best shows that I've seen in years. It's up there with an Oasis show or the Stone Roses or something. It's kind of incredible to watch - she's a real force. There's no two ways about it, she's meant to be up there doing that... I'm not close to Miley, I don't know her very well, but I feel proud of her." British singer Lily Allen is a big fan of her upcoming tourmate Miley Cyrus.

Arguably one of the most important films of the '90s and definitely one of the most important films about young people and sex, Kids was released almost two decades ago and people still can't stop talking about it. For this reason, it's exciting to learn that one of the young actors from the iconic movie is now preparing to release his own documentary about his experience—and the experiences of the other cast members—on and off the set. Hamilton Harris taught us all how to roll a blunt back in 1995, but now he's got another story to tell.
Hamilton recently gave an interview to VICE and talked about much of the behind-the-scenes drama (and trauma) that went along with filming Kids. He plans to expose and address these things with a focus on the lives of the young skaters whose stories were not fully explored in the film, or the many projects that surrounded it later. The death of one of his co-stars, Harold Hunter, also played a role in the inspiration behind the forthcoming documentary. Original cast members including Chloe Sevigny, and Kids director Larry Clark are also involved.

Actress Natasha Lyonne was reminded of the pain and suffering she endured during her days as a drug addict as art imitated life for her role on prison drama Orange Is The New Black.
The American Pie star portrays troubled jailbird Nicky Nichols in the Netflix series and her character's longtime heroin use resulted in her undergoing open heart surgery - a scenario Lyonne was all too familiar with.
The former child actress, who struggled with her own drug demons in her 20s, required a similar operation in 2012, just over five years after she kicked her addiction issues, and the scar Nichols shows off in Orange is the New Black was the real mark Lyonne was left with after her surgery.
She tells People magazine, "I feel very lucky to play Nicky. There's no shortage of things for me to draw on when it comes to her back story."
"By no means was that an enjoyable scene (showing off her scar) for me to play. I had to call on memories of painful feelings. And it was tricky because my experience was so similar but yet so far removed."
Lyonne, 35, reveals she turned to drug use after falling into a deep depression over her insecurities, but she is thankful to have been given a second chance at life. She explains, "I sort of fell victim to the teenage insecurity of, 'I'm not enough'. I had this desperation, and wanted to look and be like other girls I'd see around (Hollywood)."
"Nicky's feeling (after surviving her overdose) was, 'God, I'm still not dead yet, I have to face another day?' (But) I was surrounded by friends and was loved so much that I was like, 'Gosh, I really hope this doesn't take me out.'"
"Obviously one big reason not to do drugs is because they're very bad for your health. I'm pretty grateful that I'm OK. I feel so lucky that that teenage chapter of feeling lost is closed."
Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, and J.J. Abrams have rallied together to save the U.S.' last analogue film manufacturer from closure. The Kodak factory in Rochester, New York is the last remaining U.S. outlet for movie tape, which has rapidly declined in popularity in recent years due to a majority of directors shifting to digital methods of shooting.
Tarantino, Abrams, Nolan and Judd Apatow have teamed up to urge major Hollywood studios to keep ordering the product so it will not become obsolete.
Studios bosses are expected to make a commitment to film to appease the directors, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Abrams, who is currently shooting Star Wars: Episode VII on film, tells the newspaper the format "sets the standard for quality... There's something about film that is undeniably beautiful, undeniably organic and natural and real... Film sets the standard and once it's no longer available, the ability to shoot the benchmark goes away."
Tarantino lobbied Bob Weinstein, co-founder of The Weinstein Company studio, to consider the idea. Weinstein says, "It's a financial commitment, no doubt about it... But I don't think we could look some of our film-makers in the eyes if we didn't do it."
Animal rights activists at Peta are urging Disney bosses to change the ending of their new version of classic elephant tale Dumbo, so the titular character escapes the circus and lives out his life at a sanctuary. The movie studio executives are developing a live-action remake of the beloved 1941 animated film, and they've pledged not to use real animals in the movie, but PETA officials want them to go one step further - and rewrite the project's finale.
In the original Disney film, Dumbo becomes a star attraction at the circus after discovering he can use his huge ears to fly.
PETA spokesperson Moira Colley tells WENN, "Walt Disney Pictures has already pledged that its new version of Dumbo will use advanced computer graphics, and not a suffering captive elephant, to portray its title character, and PETA, whose motto says, in part, that 'animals are not ours to use for entertainment', has another suggestion for the film - in addition to staying true to Dumbo's honest depiction of how animals suffer in the circus, why not change the ending so that Dumbo escapes to an elephant sanctuary?"
PETA boss Merrilee Burke has written to Tendo Nagenda, Disney's vice president of production, urging him to give Dumbo a "real happy ending, allowing him to escape the world of forced entertainment and finally be free".
She writes, "Dumbo gets a lot right about the way that elephants in circuses are treated. Just as in the original film, elephants in circuses are still forcibly separated from the mothers they would stay with in nature for many years or for life. They are forced to travel for days, chained in cramped conditions inside railroad boxcars, and they are beaten, shackled, and forced to perform tricks that are frightening, unnatural, and sometimes painful to them.
"These wise, sensitive animals show signs of severe stress and deprivation, such as swaying back and forth, the way that Dumbo and Mrs. Jumbo do (in the film). Once in a while, they snap and go on dangerous rampages, just as is depicted in the film."
