Bruce Willis' daughter Rumer Willis has stripped down to her lingerie for a new shoot with celebrity photographer Tyler Shields. The 25-year-old daughter of the Die Hard actor and his ex-wife Demi Moore posed for Shields' latest series, in which she is snapped looking seductive among dirt and rocks.
In one photo, Willis is kneeling on the ground, arms outstretched and holding a massive rusty saw by the handle, while only wearing a lace bra and black thong.
The singer/actress took to Twitter.com to post the preview shot from the session and wrote, "Getting my hands dirty at my shoot with @tylershields."
Willis isn't the only celebrity who has bared nearly all for Shields - 17-year-old actress Abigail Breslin recently went topless and posed in a bathtub with only suds to preserve her modesty.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis' eldest daughter Rumer has stripped down to her underwear for a saucy shoot with celebrity photographer Tyler Shields. She follows in the footsteps of Abigail Breslin, Mischa Barton and newlywed Francesca Eastwood, who have all previously posed provocatively for the snapper.
Actress Julianne Moore constantly pesters her children to be nice to other kids after growing up as an outsider because of her nomadic childhood. The Hannibal star constantly moved schools because of her father's career with the U.S. Army, and she has also admitted she was a target for bullies because of her bright red hair.
Her own experiences as a kid have prompted the star to ensure her own offspring are always welcoming to their struggling classmates.
She tells Britain's Independent newspaper, "I'm highly aware of what it is to be on the outside. Whenever you come to a new environment, you're automatically on the outside; everyone has already established a relationship. What intrigued me growing up were the people who see that you're on the outside and let you in - and the people who don't.
"I've always encouraged my children to embrace everyone, and they get sick of it. I ask them, 'Is there a new kid? Are they by themselves? Did you talk to them? Do you want to invite them over? Do you want me to call their mom?' And my kids are like, 'Urgh, mom!' I feel like both my children are very generous and they do notice, but they've been in the same school all their lives, so it's a different kind of thing."
The star has two children, Caleb, 15, and 11 year old Liv, with director Bart Freundlich.
Country star Toby Keith has narrated a new documentary which chronicles the players and coaches of the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team as they help citizens of his hometown deal with the aftermath of a devastating tornado. The American Soldier hitmaker has added his voice to OKC Thunder: Heart of the City, which will air on TV in America on Friday night (22Nov13).
Keith's hometown of Moore, Oklahoma was ravaged by the storm earlier this year (May13), and he helped raise $2 million (£1.3 million) for the victims during a charity concert in July (13), which featured performances by Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Willie Nelson, Ronnie Dunn and Sammy Hagar.
In the new TV movie, basketball superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook visit the town to help with relief efforts and staged a training camp practice at a local high school.
Yes, we all know that Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson know how to kick some serious ass in the Panem arena, but that's just child's play. The toughest arena out there is the infamous Saturday Night Live stage in Studio 8H. Many go in, but only few come out with their heads held high.
Competitors come from far and wide to wield their comedy swords against the fierce beast that is Lorne Michaels, eager to prove that they have what it takes to be both an esteemed performer and a relatable human being. Hunger Games stars such as Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, and Lenny Kravitz have taken to the stage before, and soon their fellow dystopia resident Hutcherson is set to master comedy on a chilly Saturday night. While all of our Hunger Games actors might claim to have a funny bone or two, only one can come out victorious. So who will it be?
Jennifer LawrenceSome might jump the gun and announce J-Law the victor without a second thought, but unfortunately, her natural good humor might just be tricking us into believing that she is the funniest of them all. Lawrence has what it takes to tackle the media and film, but her performance on SNL in January 2013 proved that nerves can get the best of all of us. After handling her monologue with questionable capability, Lawrence exhibited a handful of sketches that were surprisingly awkward. However, she delivered her sketch dressed up as dog quite well. Lawrence is one of those actors who doesn't care if she looks silly (or so we're lead to believe), so her confidence adds 10 points to whatever she's doing.
Woody HarrelsonDon't let the resident Hunger Games sourpuss fool you — Harrelson knows how to make a crowd laugh. Not only did he host in 1989 before either Lawrence or Hutcherson were born, but he took the stage by storm once again in 1992. During his first stint, his monologue consisted of a song mostly inspired from reading a thesaurus, and in 1992 he showed that he wasn't afraid to show some skin when he whipped off his shirt in a sketch aptly titled, "Take off Your Shirt." Not to mention that he was aided by the comedy gold that is Phil Hartman, Jon Lovitz, Kevin Nealon, and Nora Dunn.
Lenny KravitzKravitz is definitely the wildcard in the pack. The singer and actor has never hosted the late-night variety show, but he has been the musical guest twice and has cameoed in sketches. Additionally, he showed his comedy skills when he played a considerable part in Jimmy Kimmel's "Handsome Men's Club" sketch on his talk show. However, until we're able to see Kravitz take on the role of host, we're not sure that he would be able to beat out the other tributes.
Julianne MooreMoore entered the battlefield in 1998 and proved that she can hold her own up against the likes of Tim Meadows, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, Cheri Oteri, and Darrell Hammond. Moore made her mark in "The Ladies' Man" sketch where she appeared in a sultry red dress in a bed alongside Meadows, and in the famous Gasteyer and Shannon sketch "The Delicious Dish" where she skillfully bantered on the radio as a brainwashed cult member. (Not to mention that she was paired up with musical guest Backstreet Boys, who were at their prime in the late '90s. Anyone that's deemed good enough for Backstreet Boys in 1998 must be doing something right.)
Josh HutchersonThis tribute is certainly the newest to the battle (and the youngest), but we have high hopes in his comedy skills. In his promos for SNL, he seemed like a complete natural next seasoned Bobby Moynihan. Moynihan puts him through the "SNL Initiation" to see if he's up for the challenge, and the good news is that he passes all of the tests with flying colors, which makes us think that he'll be quite the competitor.
Winner: Julianne Moore (mostly because we think she has the experience to handle anything), although we can't count out Hutcherson until this weekend when he hosts SNL alongside musical guest HAIM on Nov. 23 on NBC.
Singer Ariana Grande has turned her back on her Christian faith after becoming disillusioned with the church during the reign of Pope Benedict Xvi. The Way hitmaker grew up a Roman Catholic, but began to question her religion after the former pontiff spoke out against everything from gay marriage to the Harry Potter book series.
She tells Britain's Metro newspaper, "I was born Roman Catholic but I lost faith when the Pope decided to tell me everything I loved and believed in was wrong.
"The church said (cartoon character) Spongebob Squarepants is gay and he's a sinner and he should burn in hell. And Harry Potter was a sin. And working women. I was like 'Enough! First the gays, then Spongebob and now Harry Potter? Get out my house!' I was not having it. And the working woman thing? It was a moment for me. I needed something else to believe in."
The 20 year old has now started practising Kabbalah, a mystical offshoot of Judaism, favoured by the likes of Madonna and Demi Moore.
She adds, "It is the practice of being a good person and how that will manifest good things in your life. People don't really realise that if you are kind you can make all sorts of things happen for you."
Pope Benedict XVI stepped down earlier this year (13), making way for current Catholic leader, Pope Francis.
Robert De Niro, Ed Burns and Julianne Moore will be the first celebrities to take a tour through the new 4 World Trade Center building in New York City for a wine tasting event on Thursday (21Nov13). Proceeds from the bash will go to food donation organisation City Harvest. The original building was severely damaged and eventually demolished after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The new complex opened last week (13Nov13).
Rocker Beck has blamed a "severe" spinal injury for forcing him to scale back his music output in recent years. The Loser hitmaker, 43, went public his health issues in an interview with Argentina's Pagina/12 newspaper, admitting the ailment has hindered work on the follow-up to 2008's Modern Guilt.
In the article, which has been translated into English on TheFutureHeart.com, he says, "I had some injuries. I had severe damage to my spine, but now it's improving so I'm back in the music. It was a long, long recovery. Lately I concentrated on playing guitar. Do not think I can move again as before, although I can give a lot onstage."
Beck, who is due to release his 12th studio album, Morning Phase, next year (14), also reveals he had an album of new material in late 2008, but the tracks "stopped ringing fresh" for him and he abandoned the work until 2010, when he resumed the project.
The musician has not been completely out of the public eye during his health struggle - he contributed to albums by Charlotte Gainsbourg, Thurston Moore and a collection of Philip Glass remixes, and he also reworked David Bowie's Sound + Vision earlier this year (13).
Morning Phase, which is set to be unveiled in February (14), is described as a "companion piece" to Beck's 2002 album Sea Change, which focused on acoustic tracks.
Top Hollywood casting agent Marvin Paige has passed away. Paige died from injuries he suffered in a car crash in Los Angeles last month (Oct13). He is believed to have been in his 80s.
He worked across the TV and film industry for several decades and his castings projects included Breakfast at Tiffany's, the big screen debut of Star Trek and several Woody Allen films.
He also worked across 100 episodes of hit U.S. soap opera General Hospital, hiring Demi Moore for her early role on the show.
Paige also worked on Planet of the Apes the TV series and Lassie.
It's a movie about movies — how meta. In the trailer (via Indie Wire) for director Chuck Workman's new documentary/visual essay What is Cinema?, the filmmaker attempts to take a closer look at the mastery of cinematic form through the compilation of over 100 film clips and interviews.
In the film, Academy Award-winning Workman (Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol) not only asks the titular question, but aims to chronicle "the best of filmmaking today and proposes where cinema will go, and should go, in the future," according to the film's synopsis. Workman's interview subjects include the likes of Mike Leigh, Jonas Mekas, Yvonne Rainer, David Lynch, video artist Bill Viola, Kelly Reichardt, Costa-Gavras, Ken Jacobs, and Michael Moore. He also includes special archival interviews with Robert Bresson, Alfred Hitchock, Chantal Akerman, Akira Kurosawa, and others.
The trailer forces us to take a step back from the copious amount of films that are produced each year and really think about what a film truly is. In one of the many interviews, esteemed director David Lynch answers the question best when he poetically says: "It's so beautiful, cinema. It comes in a spark and you see it and you feel it and you hear it. It's so delicate, but if you get into that world, it can be like a dream." We have a feeling that this whole documentary will be a walk through hundreds of awesome dreams.
What is Cinema? premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and will next appear at DOC NYC on Nov. 19th.
