"I'd get a ride to work but I rode my bike back home across Brooklyn at night. It was really fun. So I got in pretty good shape and got to see a lot of Brooklyn." Bill Murray opted to provide his own transportation home from the New York City set of his new movie St. Vincent.
Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa has reportedly received more than $100 million (£62.5 million) from her late mum's estate. The veteran comedienne passed away last month (Sep14) after suffering cardiac and respiratory arrest during a routine throat operation.
Now her only child, Melissa, is set to inherit $75 million (£47 million) in cash as well as the $35 million (£22 million) condo in New York City's Upper East Side, according to Us Weekly.
Melissa's son Cooper, 13, is expected to receive his own bequest.
Last week (16Oct14), a New York medical examiner determined Rivers died of hypoxic arrest, when oxygen to her brain was cut off during the procedure.
Anne Hathaway risked hypothermia on the set of her new space drama Interstellar when icy water leaked into her dry suit while she was shooting a scene in a lake in Iceland. The Oscar winner didn't want to be the first person to complain about the frigid temperatures, but when she started hallucinating, she alerted a nearby crew member, who realised the leading lady was truly suffering for her art.
She tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I was wearing a suit that kayakers wear, called a dry suit. And human error, we didn't close it all the way. And you're in the suit for hours and hours and hours, so there was about an inch opening in it, and I'm sitting in the water, which is not very warm.
"We'd been shooting in the elements, and it's not like I was the only one in pain. I was just the only one in specific pain, and I didn't want to hold up shooting. But at some point, I wasn't sure if I could feel my toes... and then I was feeling all sorts of weird flashes and things were getting a little hazy around the edges, and that's when I turned to our first (assistant director), and I said, 'Hey, I don't know that much about hypothermia, but what are the symptoms?'
"I explained what was going on, and he said, 'Oh, like, right now?' And I'm like, 'Yeah!' And so then he went over to (director) Chris (Nolan), and Chris was like, 'OK, let's roll, let's roll, let's roll right now!' And we were done shortly thereafter."
Actor John Leguizamo's onscreen brawl with his To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar co-star Patrick Swayze was so realistic because the two actors were close to coming to blows for real. Leguizamo and Swayze played drag queens in the 1995 film and the Latino star admits they didn't have to dig too deep to find the anger they needed for a scrap.
In an interview on U.S. talk show Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday (21Oct14), Leguizamo reveals, "We did this scene where we were supposed to fight together. It was very realistic because we had a lot of off-screen beef.
"Swayze was cool, he was chill; I was a young actor trying to make it and I was just, like, ad-libbing like crazy. And he was like, 'You gotta stop that'. And I went, 'Make me'."
He continued, "I'm (from) New York. I get ghetto sometimes. I was a little insecure. But (co-star) Wesley (Snipes) was even like, 'Oh, I got your back'. And then we put it into the scene."
The two actors never came to blows off-screen, although Leguizamo admits they "pushed each other (around)" and challenged each other to throw a punch. The tension on set served both stars well - they earned Golden Globe nominations for their roles.
Sammy Hagar's supergroup Chickenfoot reunited at his birthday bash in Las Vegas on Saturday night (18Oct14). The rocker was forced to relocate the party when Hurricane Odile ripped through Cabo, Mexico, where Hagar traditionally celebrates his birthday with famous friends and fans - and so he took over Sin City's new Downtown Las Vegas Events Center and transformed it into a star-studded concert.
Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith joined the birthday boy onstage for a short Chickenfoot set. Hagar was also joined by Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger and Jason Bonham for a rendition of Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love.
Bonham's father John played on the original track and Jason sat in for his late father when Led Zep reformed for a one-off concert in London in 2007.
"The Langham in London is such a dream. They gave me a tea set, after all the years I've stayed here I shall cherish it. Thank you so very much." Lady Gaga is flattered to have received a special gift from bosses at the luxury hotel.
Actor Steve Coogan has replaced the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in comedy series Happyish. The Capote star was slated to make his TV series debut in the show after it was picked up by bosses at America's Showtime network in January (14).
However, following Seymour's death from a drug overdose in February (14), bosses at the network were unsure if they wanted to move forward with the project. It has now emerged Coogan will step in for Hoffman.
The late actor filmed a pilot for the series, but Coogan will re-shoot the episode in New York in December (14).
An announcement from a representative at Showtime reads: "Noted for his range of comedic and dramatic roles, Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Steve Coogan is set to star in the Showtime comedy pilot Happyish... a comedic, soul-searching examination of our pursuit of happiness, a pursuit that might just be the very thing causing our unhappiness in the first place."
Shia Labeouf found God on the set of new war movie Fury and credits co-star Brad Pitt and director David Ayer with helping him achieve a new level of spirituality.
The actor is trying to get his life back on track following a series of bizarre incidents and alcohol-fuelled bar fights and legal issues, and he insists his new-found love of religion will help him get past his troubles. In a new Interview magazine expose, the Transformers star calls himself a "Christian man", insisting he's serious about being a man of God.
He says, "Not in a f**king bulls**t way, in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can't identify (it) unless you're really going through it. It's a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control. And while there's beauty to that, acting is all about control. So that was a wild thing to navigate. "I had good people around me (on the set) who helped me. Brad was really instrumental in guiding my head through this. Brad comes from a hyper-religious, very deeply Christian, Bible Belt life, and he rejected it and moved toward an unnamed spirituality. He looked at religion like the people's opium, almost like a Marxist view on religion. "Whereas David is a full subscriber to Christianity. But these two diametrically opposed positions both lead to the same spot, and I really looked up to both men. It was nice to have conversations with Brad about the family he came from and what he was using to get through the day."
Singer Bret Michaels is warning fans not to give up their financial information to online pranksters pretending to be him. The Poison frontman has become embroiled in a bizarre scam, in which impersonators pose as the rocker and claim he needs fans' assistance to set up a cash transfer. Some gullible fans have been falling for the con, handing over their bank account information.
Urging his devotees to be more aware in a a message on his Facebook.com page, Michaels writes: "It has come to our attention that someone is online saying they are Bret Michaels and that they need help transferring a large sum of money. They are creating numerous fraudulent Facebook profiles, watching who comments on Bret's real Facebook page and then reaching out and starting a conversation.
"They are asking that you do not share the phone number they give you, bring this to management's attention or tell anyone about their texts to you as they need the information to be confidential. They have also been known to text people who have phone numbers listed in their 'about me' sections.
"We implore you to please be vigilant and not fall for these people's lies. Please do not give out your address, phone numbers or any banking information to these individuals. If they message you through Facebook, please report the page."
Pop star Cody Simpson is preparing to make his acting debut after joining the cast of Courteney Cox's TV comedy Cougar Town. The Australian singer will guest star as a high school student who bears an uncanny resemblance to Josh Hopkins' character Grayson in the show's upcoming sixth and final season, reports Eonline.com.
Simpson hinted at the acting job in a Twitter.com post on Monday (20Oct14), when he shared a photo of himself in a suit on a production set, alongside the simple caption, "Sparked a little acting flame."
