Hey Jeremy Renner, how’s it going? You look good. Really good, actually. We don’t know how to start this conversation, so we’re just going to come out and say it: there seems to be a witch using a machine gun in your Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters international trailer. There’s also head-butting, a nightmare candy house and, from what we can ascertain, a decapitation using string and the velocity of a flying witch. We just want to make sure that you’re okay now that the trailer has dropped, and to make verify that you know you don’t have to take every action roleyou get offered anymore. Those days are behind you, Jeremy.
We thought maybe after you’d stolen Mission: Impossible, The Bourne Legacy and The Avengers out from under Tom Cruise, Matt Damon and everyone but Robert Downey Jr. respectively, you felt like you couldn’t turn an action role down? Like if for some reason someone kept giving us free fudge, and part of us felt like we couldn’t not eat all of the fudge for fear that our free fudge supplier would find some other bloggers to give that free fudge too? Then we realized that Hansel And Gretel was filmed back in 2011 before have its release date delayed, and was only now being nudged out in January 2013, probably because you became the world’s number #1 action hero. So maybe no witch-slaughtering sequels, yeah? On the other hand, you do look crazy hot in a steam punk vest, so what do we know? Why wouldn’t a witch use a machine gun, when you think about it?
While many stars have put their most glam foot forward at the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival, some have decided to keep it casual for their photocalls with simple threads. Brad Pitt suited up with a simple olive green jacket and pant and a plain white v-neck T. (Pitt and others later put on their black-tie best for the premiere of Killing Them Softly, but we’re glad he got to relax a little first. Also, no bow tie in the world could make his long hair and beard look dressed up.) Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton arrived in stylish, yet comfy ensembles — Kim in an all-black pant jumper and Paris in a colorful shirt and black leggings. Of course, every lady that took the casual route in the past few days was still seen with 5-inch stilettos. Since many stars showed up and showed out at Cannes opening day and continued to wow us throughout the weekend, it’s nice to see a few celebs in breezy getups befitting the Mediterranean setting of the film fest.
Gemma ArtertonÂ is just hanging out and smoking a cigarette while completely splattered with blood. Fake blood, that is. She was taking a break on the set of her new vampire film Byzantium in Dublin, Ireland.
You can check out the full list of BAFTA winners here, but let’s get down to the really important stuff: who rocked the red carpet? Can we just say right in the beginning that J.K Rowling, taking a page out of the House of Slytherin, and wearing a python-print Lanvin halter-necked gown totally surprised us! Ssss-izzling! Lucky Julianne Moore wore a midnight blue Tom Ford velvet gown with a gorgeous bow detail at the back. Ford was also Julianne’s date for the night! Other best dressed stars included Jessica Alba in a flowing Atelier Versace, and the always lovely Emma Watson in Valentino. Want to know who else made the list? You’ll just have to check out the gallery below.

Americans Jessica Alba and Olivia Wilde were among the sexy, slinky ladies attending yesterday’s Vogue Paris dinner in honor of Gucci’s Frida Gianni at the Hotel de la Rochefoucauld Doudeauville,. Check out the gallery below to get a closer look at what Alba, Wilde, Gemma Arterton, Diane Kruger and others wore to the glamorous bash.
Hey, do you think there are any actresses who’d like to be in the sequel to the biggest non-James Cameron movie ever? Casting for The Dark Knight Rises is well underway, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing a shortlist of the ladies auditioning for roles in the film. While no one’s saying if previously featured parts like Catwoman, Poison Ivy or Vicki Vale are making a return to the franchise, word is Talia, daughter of Batman Begins baddie Ra’s Al Ghul and enthusiast for skin-tight body suits, is going to play a part in Rises. If there’s another part available, we’re guessing its Sexy Villainess In Tight Clothing or Sexy Gainfully Employed Woman In A Frustrating Relationship With Bruce Wayne.
Check out the gallery below to see all the women who could potentially be joining Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Inception’s Tom Hardy (one of our Biggest Bad-Asses Of 2010) in the guaranteed Bat-smash.
Some people are lucky enough to play princesses but also get fairy tale endings in real life. Actress Gemma Arterton has got with Daniel Craig and Jake Gyllenhaal on screen in the Bond film Quantum of Solace and Prince of Persia respectively. And she just married her Italian fiance Stefano Catelliin a dreamy little Spanish village called Zuheros in Andalucia.
She arrived at the hill-top wedding in a strapless, flowing cream gown, with a long veil, carrying a bouquet of trailing white roses. Sigh. And the newly-married couple drove off in a vintage open-top car. Double sigh.
Arterton had recently said, “It was absolutely instant. I remember going home the night after I met him and writing in my diary that I’d met the man I’m going to marry. I gave that diary entry to him for his birthday two weeks later. But it didn’t freak him out, because he was thinking the same thing. I just really want to spend the rest of my life with him. He’s an amazing man.”
The Bond girl is quite vociferous in general. She revealed how hurt she had been about criticism that she had put on weight saying, “I went to a designer the other day – who will remain nameless – and he said to me: ‘I’m amazed that you’re fitting into these sample sizes.” Her reply? “I’m a size eight to ten! I should be amazed that the largest you’re making these is a size six.” ‘Nuff said.
June is just around the corner, which means hot temps, the occasional sunburn, and a major influx of movie releases. Many of us will beat the heat by noshing on some popcorn in a overly-air conditioned theater, but in the sea of blockbuster hopefuls, what’s worth our $12.50? What packs the heat, without causing pit stains? Considering the sex appeal of the stars, steaminess of the story, and cling of the wardrobe, we’re counting down a dozen flicks that’ll sizzle the summer months, from lukewarm to piping hot.
12. Sex and the City 2, May 27th: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis hit the Middle East in 5-inch heels, high-slitted designer dresses, and sparkly turbans. Beefcake and baby-less Aiden returns to tempt Mrs. Big.
3-D technology is cool and all, but what really fascinates Gemma Arterton are pockets. The Clash Of The Titans star couldn’t keep her hands out of hers at the film’s London premiere earlier today—after a while it stops looking like a cool pose and more like your belly itches, Gemma. Also attending were co-stars Nicholas Hoult, Alexa Davalos and Sam Worthington, who probably isn’t worried about being typecast as a 3-D action hero as long as these films continue to make kajillions. Release the Kraken in the gallery below.
