Salma Hayek Says Her Mexican Heritage Remarks Were “Lost In Translation”

Salma Hayek has defended herself against criticism from fellow Mexicans after she was accused of turning her back on her Hispanic roots following a recent interview about her heritage.

The actress, who now lives in France, was discussing her role as a Mexican cartel leader in new movie “Savages” to editors at Vogue Deutsch, and was quoted as saying, “I am proud to have been involved in this film with all these great actors. Honestly, I hardly had any memories of what it is to be Mexican. My life is completely different now.” Read more…

Dane Cook Slammed For Joking About Colorado Theater Shooting

On Thursday, Dane Cook joked about last week’s deadly Colorado cinema massacre during a stand-up gig at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles.

He told the audience, “So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie… And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap… I know that if none of that would have happened, pretty sure that somebody in that theatre, about 25 minutes in, realising it was a piece of crap, was probably like, ‘Ugh, f**king shoot me.’”

In response to his “joke,” some people laughed while others groaned their disapproval. Read more…

Liberty Ross Revealed Marriage Problems With Rupert Sanders Weeks Before The Kristen Stewart Affair

Rupert Sanders’ model wife Liberty Ross opened up about her marital problems just weeks before the director was accused of having an affair with actress Kristen Stewart.

Stewart — who is dating her “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson — issued a public apology on Wednesday following the publication of images which appeared to show her in a clinch with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Sanders.

The moviemaker also released a statement apologizing to his wife and children for “the pain I have caused my family,” and it has now emerged Ross opened up about their marriage in a candid interview just two weeks before the scandal hit headlines.

In the chat with Britain’s You magazine, Ross, 33, revealed she struggled after moving from her native U.K. to Los Angeles and often felt lonely while Sanders was busy with his work. Read more …

Photos Of “America’s Next Top Model” Winner Sophie Sumner

It was the battle of the blondes (and battle of the U.K. versus U.S.) on the season finale of “America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion” on Wednesday.

Some highlights: American Laura LaFrate had a panic attack after shooting her ad for CoverGirl, and she was taken to the hospital. However, she recovered and got herself back into the game. Brit Sophie Sumner did a great job recording her dialogue for the CoverGirl commercial – without requiring medical attention.

The models posed for Vogue Italia, and the competition was fierce. They finished off with a runway show for Forever 21 and had just 90 seconds for wardrobe changes. It was a tight race up until the very end.

Sophie, who also made it to the final two on “Britain’s Top Model,” was crowned the winner.

“Game Of Thrones”’ Battle Of The Blackwater Almost Didn’t Happen

Producers of HBO’s hit “Game of Thrones“ were left in a bind when they had to plan the series’ memorable Battle of Blackwater, due to budget constraints. In fact, the first plan was to have the entire battle off-screen.

Much like stage plays, producers and writers were going to have battle updates coming from a messenger. The maidens of the castle gathered in Maegor’s Holdfast to wait out the battle with the castle’s executioner – who was there to give the women a clean death instead of leaving them to the occupying forces.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Is Not Cursed In Love

Jennifer Love Hewitt has slammed reports she tested a new boyfriend by taking him on vacation. Reports suggested the actress invited her “The Client List” co-star Brian Hallisay on a week-long Fiji getaway to see how their relationship would fare before going public as a couple.

An article in The National Enquirer reported that Hewitt feels “as if she’s been jinxed in the romance department” after a string of break-ups.

In response to the rumors, the actress insists the story is false and took to Twitter to tell fans she was actually on a goodwill trip with pals. Read more …

TV Report Card: Grading 10 Season Finales

Season finales are essentially the Hollywood version of final exams.  They have to shock and awe and entice viewers into returning after four arduous months of dead air.  From births and deaths to break-ups and OMG-worthy shockers, I’m grading 10 season finales.  The SPOILER ALERT is implied. 

“Revenge’s” thrilling season ender saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) not only confront her father’s killer in a satisfying and strangely sweet final fight, but surrender to her feelings for ruggedly handsome bartender, Jack. It wouldn’t be “Revenge” without infuriating twists and double-crosses. Read more …

10 Fun Facts About The Original “21 Jump Street”

As part of Hollywood’s never-ending pillaging of the TV landscape of my youth, the big-screen reboot of “21 Jump Street” hits theaters this Friday. Having been a huge fan of the show, I was opposed to the film from the get-go. However, after hearing that most (if not all) of the main cast members have cameos, and that the movie has very little in common with the series aside from the title and basic premise, I’m not so dead set against it. Besides, if it does well, there’s a good chance that some network will start airing reruns of the original show, allowing me to rekindle my once-raging crush on Peter DeLuise.

Before Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum go undercover this weekend, let’s look back at the days when Johnny Deppwas the baby-faced cop by whom we all wanted to be arrested. Here are 10 fun facts about the original “21 Jump Street” series that you may or may not know. Read more…
