When VH1 sat down with Ice-T at a screening of his film Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, we did not expect the conversation to go the way of zombie vampires … in space. Ever the awesome interviewee, Ice humored our vampire-obsessed tendencies and fielded some very important questions.
After 12 years, Ice’s Law & Order: SVU co-star Christopher Meloni left the series last year presumably to pursue a film career and obviously for his four-episode stint as Roman on True Blood. As a 500-year-old leader of the Vampire Authority, one could say he traded one form of Law & Order for another, much more undead one. On the departure of Detective Elliot Stabler, Ice said “I’m happy for Chris. At some point, you gotta make your exit… If it’s up to me, [Law & Order] will be on for 20 years.” Hilariously Ice added, “He’s going to the best vampire they’ve ever seen because the man’s crazy – he’s got beady eyes.”
Naturally our imaginations wandered and we had to ask about he and wife Coco‘s vampire potential. “We’d be the best vampires in the history of the world,” Ice-T confidently declared. “But I think we need to be a different kind of vampire… like vampire zombies. [Laughs] The next generation – space zombies or something.”
Full interview below, wherein Ice describes Coco’s undercover love for hard-core gore flicks.
We’ve been obsessed with finding out more about Robert Pattinson‘s screenwriting ambitions, which he vaguely alluded to in an interview with Vanity Fair earlier this year. On last night’s Breaking Dawn black carpet, we made it our personal mission to find out more, and producer Wyck Godfrey spilled the beans. He told us that he is currently working “on a couple things” with Rob at the moment. “He has great creative instincts,” said Wyck. Awww! When we asked if they were developing one of Rob’s screenplays together, he replied, “It’s a book that he’s interested in.”
Aha! Rob told Vanity Fair that there was a Lillian Hellman story he was playing around with adapting. Could this be it? “I’m not telling you!” Wyck laughed as he dashed away. Hmmm, that sounds like a bit of a giveaway to us! We then asked Rob about his writing. “Yeah,” he said, “I’m doing a bit of that. I’m doing a bit of everything.”
Sounds like Wyck and Rob have some interesting things in the works. Fans, would like to see Rob’s written work come to life on the big screen? We sure would! And with Kristen Stewart looking to line up her next project, maybe there’s an opportunity for her to work with her boyfriend again. Hey, we can dream!

When we caught wind ofRobert Pattinson boasting about Kristen Stewart‘s secret trumpet playing skills in an interview, we were baffled. Was Rob just joking around, as he’s known to do? Or was he being serious in reporting that his girlfriend knows how to toot her own (literal) horn? Well, we took to Twitter before the Breaking Dawn black-carpet premiere, and you guys encouraged us to ask Kristen about the mysterious horn rumor going round the Web and so — duh, duh, duh — we did! And guess what: Kristen is indeed learning how to play the trumpet!
The actress, decked out in J. Mendel, said that she was inspired to learn the instrument after filming On the Road and hasn’t put it down since. “I love it,” she told us. “And I just wanted to start playing … I picked it up quickly.” Kristen paused, before adding, “Rob can’t do it.” Ah, how we love the way this couple teases each other in interviews! Watch the entire clip above.

Much to the delight of “Robsten” believers worldwide, as Today host Ann Curry congratulated Robert Pattinson on his many successes, she included snagging his “beautiful girlfriend.” While it’s pretty obvious at this point that he and Kristen Stewart are in a serious relationship (Bear and all!), we can’t help but get giddy when the subject is openly discussed. One mystery remains…did Ann Curry just naively bring up Kristen without knowing they were still playing the “secret lovers” game, or was it a strategic slip to make Rob (adorably) blush?
Yep, you read that right! Robert Downey Jr. chatted with VH1 at the American Cinematheque Award Gala in his honor and immediately told me — unprompted — about his pregnant wife’s growing breasts. Super-producer Susan Downey laughed along as her marveled over their size after bumping into her at the start of our interview, calling her “cosmically endowed.” You really can’t make this stuff up, especially because I was there and participated in the entire conversation.
When we asked about the new Avengers trailer, the Oscar nominee said he was “delighted to hear that it broke the download record” on iTunes. RDJ told us that when he heard it got over 10 million downloads he responded, “Is that a lot?” Answer: Hell yes ,it is! “It’s gonna be good,” he added. Duh, we replied in our head. It looks amazing.
The Downeys were absolutely adorable together on the red carpet. The pair cuddled and laughed as they chatted with reporters. Susan, who runs their production company, Team Downey, stunned in a brown dress and sparkling sky-high heels that had every lady on the press line drooling. Right after we finished our chat, the actor was engulfed in a bear hug from Mel Gibson. It doesn’t get more Hollywood than that.
Few people would deny that Woody Allen is a cinematic legend. He’s also, well, sort of an old perv. Now that Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris has hit Cannes, the director has some creepy and/or flattering things to say about his female leads like Rachel McAdams and Penelope Cruz. “The women, especially, in my films have to be real. And yet it’s also very important to me to present the women with the enthusiasm and eroticism and awe that I feel about them. I’m very concerned with how they look, that they match my image of them,” Woody gushed to W Magazine. “I have great adoration and lust and interest in all of the women in my films. It would thrill me to go out with all of them.” Ah yes, because what woman doesn’t swoon at the idea of being one of a 75-year-old man’s dozens upon dozens of girlfriends?
Feel free to sub in the phrase “your supervisor at Applebee’s” for “Woody Allen” if you aren’t sure why these comments are more than a little off-putting. Despite the recent rave reviews for Midnight and his close personal friendship with Scarlett Johannson, Allen sometimes finds himself so dumbfounded by his muses that he can’t actually have a conversation with them. “I’m too shy to meet them. I have the women come in and I don’t let them sit down,” Allen admits. “I make up some questions, but I couldn’t care less about chatting. I only see them to make sure that they haven’t gained 200 pounds or had five face jobs.” That being said, we highly doubt getting five face lifts or gaining 200 lbs would keep Allen from acting like your sweet grand-uncle…who you try to keep from talking to your female friends at all costs.
She’s already got Hollywood wrapped around her finger, so she doesn’t need validation from us. That being said, we have much love for our fantasy little sister, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence. In Jennifer Lawrence’s Elle interview, the Winter Bones star described her work out goals prior to appearing in nothing but blue paint for scenes for X-Men: First Class, opening June 3. “I knew that if I was going to be naked in front of the world, I wanted to look like a woman and not a prepubescent 13-year-old boy,” Lawrence said. “I’m so sick of people thinking that’s what we’re supposed to look like.” It’s like we’re looking at a younger, Oscar-winning version of ourselves.
As if she wasn’t already someone you’d want to join for a Veronica Mars marathon and Clive Owen sweat sesson, Jennifer also reminisced about her pre-Academy Award meal. “Fifteen minutes before, the guy doing my hair goes, ‘If you can get a salad, get a salad. I said, ‘I’m getting a Philly cheesesteak.’ I’m sure there’s proof on a hotel bill somewhere,” Lawrence said. After watching Jennifer Lawrence’s Elle photo shoot video, all we want to do is eat grilled meats and watch Big Lebowski with her. Not that we won’t enjoy doing both of those things by ourselves; it just won’t be the same.
Turns out Paris Hilton and Lil Wayne have more in common then just looking fierce in orange. In Interview Magazine, Hilton identifies with Lil Wayne’s prison time, like how good it feels to walk out of your cell and back into your fabulous mansion. “For me it was okay, because it just meant that I was alone with my thoughts,” the rapper said about his time inside, the result of a gun-related charge in 2007. “I had to do 24 nights in solitary,” Hilton commiserated, a precautionary measure taken when Hilton served time for violating probation in 2007. We imagine it was harder for Paris. Not because she pampered, but because when she’s alone with her thoughts it’s just the sound of chihuahuas barking over an sick house beat.
“Words cannot explain,” Wayne says when asked how happy he is to be free. “Yeah, I know how you feel,” Hilton agrees “It’s the best feeling in the world when you come out.” We guess we’ve never realized how much the rapper and the heiress have in common: both wear thousands of dollars worth of jewelry, both have weird voices that we suspect they drop whenever the press is out of earshot, and both know how to make a shiv out of toothbrush and a scratched CD single of “Stars Are Blind.” Good thing they’ve been seen in the same room, or else we’d have started getting suspicious.
When it comes to celebrities, people often see what they want to see. When it comes to seeing Jake Gyllenhaal canoodling with another dude though, these people unfortunately need to get their vision checked. While visiting with Jimmy Kimmel to promote his new film Source Code, Jake Gyllenhaal complained that everyone thought his best friend was his boyfriend after Brokeback Mountain hit theaters. According to Gyllenhaal, when traveling to London as a BAFTA nominee for the film, his agent and manager saw his pal adjusting Jake’s tie…and though his buddy was going in for a little face time. “They walked in and were like, ‘Ohhh, we’re so sorry, we’ll just let you guys be!’” Jake laughed. When Gyllenhaal actually won the award, he recalled: “He’s sitting next to me, and when I won he yelled, ‘Yay, baby!’ and everyone around is was like, ‘Did he just call him baby?’” We don’t know how everyone could be so confused when clearly Jake has just been quietly waiting to date us. WE SAID CLEARLY.
Despite public romances with lovely ladies likeTaylor Swift, Jenny Lewisand Reese Witherspoon, Gyllenhaal has always been followed by lingering gay rumors, or as we like to call it, “wishful thinking.” Believe me, we understand. Have you seen Neil Patrick Harris? Some part of us will never give up hope. Never.
Whatever you do on this earth, do not embarrass Ellen DeGeneres. She will plot for months, even years, before throwing it back in your face, along with a Justin Bieber pillow case. While interviewing the singer this afternoon, Ellen called out Selena Gomez on her Justin Bieber lies, having claimed they were more like siblings than snuggle buddies. After luring Selena into a false sense of security and friendship, DeGeneres surprises her with video of her last visit to the show…which was jam-packed with Bieber denial. “He’s little! He’s like a little brother. That’s weird to me,” Gomez claimed at the time before grimacing in disgust at the idea of smooching on Bieber. She might dress like a cool substitute teacher, but Ellen is basically a walking episode of Lie To Me. Selena might as well be talking to a lie detector test.
Then all Ellen has to do is sit back while Selena, who’s new film Monte Carlo drops in June, tries not to lose it. “I don’t know!,” the singer howled when asked for an explanation. “Then you went to the Vanity Fair party and made me a fool,” Ellen calmly explains to the abashed singer. “I didn’t lie to you. I will say that,” Gomez exclaims, before Ellen presents her with a tasteful Bieber pillow. “He’s going to make me sleep with this every night. Thank you for that,” Selena jokes at the end. You’re just lucky you’re not sleeping on the bottom of the Hudson with cement shoes, Gomez. You mess with the Ellen, you get the smooth funky dance moves.
