Heidi Montag Wants To Be in Transformers 3 Really Badly

After Megan Fox was dropped from Transformers 3, it took just a few days for Michael Bay to decide her replacement would be model Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Still, in Heidi Montag‘s world, that means nothing, and she’s literally gunning for the role even though the deal is virtually sealed.

PopEater reports that Heidi has launched a Twitter campaign to get noticed by Bay and has posted video at a shooting  range and engaging in “combat training” in order to prove her action prowess. This isn’t the first time Heidi has talked about wanting to be an action star, so it’s not surprising that she’s going the extra mile to impress Bay. We wonder though, can an action star really kick ass with their back scooped out?

Russell Brand And Katy Perry Get Evil At The Greek Premiere

Russell Brand & Katy Perry

Oh, hell yeah. We are 100% behind Russell Brand‘s decision to wear gold boots with a white suit and open shirt to the Get Him To The Greek premiere in LA last night. With Katy Perry vamping it up like a super-villain, this mackadocious outfit was clearly the only way to go—now we’re just worried they’ll blow up the world if they don’t get a billion dollars in 48 hours.

Apparently hesitant to compete with Brand’s swagger, Diddy showed up in casual clothes, joined by his mom— a move that makes us miss the guy who might have brought eight dancers, some doves and a suit actually made of ivory a decade ago. Befitting the premiere of a Judd Apatow production, Greek‘s stars were joined by comedy all-stars like Ed Helms, Kristin Bell, Jon Hamm, Alison Brie and Christopher Mintz-Plasse on the red carpet, as well as Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Rosario Dawson. See what they wore in the gallery below.

Is Emma Roberts The Next Lindsay Lohan?

SPL180517_002

Look at Lindsay Lohan at it again! Wait… it’s not LiLo. It’s 19-year-old Emma Roberts looking *ahem* worse for wear at an after party for her film 4,3,2,1 in London. Bye-bye Nancy Drew!

Cigarette dangling from mouth. Check. Crazy eyes. Check. About-to-keel-over pose. Check.

So one-off night out, or is Ms Roberts heading the Lindz route? Cautionary tale, folks. You know it’s true!

FABLife’s DVD Pick Of The Week

 The Road

Cormac McCarthy‘s The Road is a rough ride. His prize-winning novel is set after an unspecified disaster leaves Planet Earth a big hunk of charcoal. The crazed survivors are left looking for meat—usually of the human variety. Across this blasted landscape, a man and his son head south, dodging cannibals and savoring simple pleasures like a found can of Coke. Where McCarthy took a dismal view of the future, the filmmakers choose to emphasize how their bond represents undying virtues in a dying planet. As the Man, Viggo Mortensen expertly displays humanity hidden beneath a tough shell. The Road may lack the crowd-pleasing stunts of post-apocalyptic fare like I Am Legend, but it’s elemental celebration of what makes us good will stick with audiences a lot longer. A great soundtrack by Nick Cave, too.

Extras: Commentary from director John Hillcoat (The Proposition), deleted/extended scenes, making of featurette.

Megan Fox To Be Replaced By Victoria’s Secret Model In Transformers 3

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Whether she thought director Michael Bay was “verbally abusive” or the studio thought she was “too skinny,” Megan Fox‘s reasons for leaving Transformers 3 clearly had nothing to do with her acting ability. Why else would we be hearing that she’ll be replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a model with no previous acting experience? As we revealed in our list of potential Transformers 3 hotties, it wasn’t like they were out of the options.

But before you weep for the talented young actresses skipped over for the high-profile role, remember that Megan’s biggest moment in Revenge Of The Fallen was either when she straddled a motorcycle while talking about “internet dating” or when that little Decepticon humped her leg. And who knows? Maybe Rosie will do a great job helping Shia LaBeouf bring the “heart” back to the franchise. Check out the gallery and imagine how smoking she’ll look all tussled and grimy under Bay’s boiling lights.

Sex And The City 2 Premiere Brings The Ladies (And Some Husbands)

Sarah Jessica Parker

Despite what you might think, there were actually men at the Sex And The City 2 premiere in NYC last night—and not just men from the cast or men married to castmembers (hello, Matthew Broderick). For instance, Valentino was there. He’s a dude! Also, Johnny Weir—yes, a male athlete who enjoys Sex And The City! A jock! Howard Stern went along with wife Beth Ostrosky and his daughter (bet he had a great time, totally wasn’t just there to get his ladies on the guest list or anything), and he may well have talked about the film later with other good husbands like Jerry Seinfeld, Donald Trump and George Stephanopoulos, who certainly weren’t gritting their teeth as Sarah Jessica Parker and her pals enjoyed the luxuries of Abu Dhabi.

Despite the obvious cross-gender appeal, women definitely dominated the event, with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Whitney Port, Gabourey Sidibe, Ashanti, Jessica Szohr and many more joining the cast on the red carpet. See what everyone wore in the gallery below.

Milla Jovovich Goes Big At Cannes

Milla Jovovich stepped out in a big way at the premiere of Exodus—Burnt By The Sun 2 at Cannes this weekend, hitting the red carpet in a voluminous gown that screamed “get out of my way!” even more than those massive guns she swings around in the Resident Evil movies. We love Milla—remember when she made that Bjorkish album in the nineties?—but this looks like an arty variation on something that would go with clogs. Do you like her front bustle? Check out the gallery and let us know in our TheFABLife poll.

Salma Hayek Heats Up Cannes’ Palme D’or Ceremony

Salma Hayek

Thailand took home its first Palme D’Or ever at Cannes this weekend for Apichatpong Weerasethakul‘s Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, which is sort of like Snakes On A Plane in that the title describes the story and it’s full of wild animals (that may be where the similarities end, though). The avant-garde film doesn’t have an American release date yet, but with Alice In Wonderland‘s Tim Burton leading this year’s Cannes jury, we’re sure it will find its way here eventually. Among the gorgeous celebs attending the ceremony were Salma Hayek, Kate Beckinsale, Kirsten Dunst, Penelope Cruz, and acting winners Javier Bardem and Juliette Binoche. See what they wore in the gallery below.

James Franco Set To Shoot Planet Of The Apes Prequel

James Franco

James Franco, what is your game? Between the General Hospital appearances and the master’s degrees and the small roles in chick flicks (Nights In Rodanthe? Why?), we can never figure out what the logic is behind this guy’s career choices. For instance, he’s finally decided to make the potential sci-fi blockbuster his agent has probably been praying for…only it’s apparently going to be a Planet Of The Apes prequel. What, they’re not going to let us know what happened after the 2001 Mark Wahlberg movie? We’ve been dying for closure!

Rise Of The Apes‘s producers hope to have Franco play a modern day genetic engineer in San Francisco who has something to do with the world’s first super-intelligent apes. According to Nikki Finke, Hollywood mighty impressed with Franco in the upcoming Danny Boyle drama 127 Hours, about a hiker who has to saw off his own limb and hope to take his badassery further into the limelight. With Franco soon to appear in theaters as Allen Ginsberg in Howl, a knight in the next Danny McBride comedy and a love interest for Julia Roberts in Eat Pray Love, it looks like there isn’t any genre the guy can’t conquer. So expect James to retire to start his own fish cannery sometime next year.

Cannes Craziness: Is Elizabeth Banks Trying Too Hard?

If Elizabeth Banks has been trying to get our attention, she’s certainly succeeding. The star of comedies like Role Models, Zack & Miri Make A Porno and The 40 Year Old Virgin has consistently worn the most dramatic outfits at the Cannes Film Festival this week, ranging from a strawberry swirl of a gown at the Poetry premiere to a blue blast of sparkle-motion at Wednesday’s Armani party to the backless studded marvel above at yesterday’s Artists For Peace & Justice benefit. Should Elizabeth give it a rest or are you loving her flamboyance? Check out our gallery from last night’s charity bash and  let us know in our TheFABLife poll.
