Robert Pattinson “ruined” the bed in Breaking Dawn sex scene

Twilight actor Robert Pattinson expressed his preference for the sex scene during Edward and Bella’s honeymoon and said he “ruined” the bed.  “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” presents a series of emotional scenes from the wedding ceremony of Bella and Edward to their honeymoon, to the broken-hearted Jacob. And every actor had his favorite scene.

The much awaited “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” is one step closer to the premiere. The actors now talk about their favorite scenes.  Of all, the majority of the actors talk about the wedding scene as the most touching. But Robert Pattinson gives more credit to another one: the wedding night scene. “I wanted to have it as a line so much: ‘I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One.’ And then he’d start crying,” the 25-year-old actor said. “By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows!” he added, saying that it was Egyptian cotton. “I ruined this bed!”

Kirsten Stewart believes the union between her character, Bella Swan, and her vampire sweetheart Edward Cullen, was very “volatile and emotional”.  The actress says that “It’s a trip to watch the wedding scenes, especially. It was so volatile and emotional — I was being such a crazy person” she added in the interview to Entertainment Weekly.

Co-star Boo Boo Stewart, 17, who plays Seth Clearwater in the Saga, told Us Weekly he particularly likes the nuptials scene, as well. “[Billy Burke] made that scene really great because he had to walk [Stewart] down the aisle, and I think he really did a great job.” Boo Boo admits he felt “weird”, explaining that “I was sitting there and I was like, ‘This is actually really touching.”

“Breaking Dawn – Part 1” continues the love story between the vampire Edward Cullen and his love, human Bella Swan.  The two get married and she becomes pregnant with a baby that is a real threat to the wolf pack and the vampire coven. 

The movie will hit the theaters on November 18.

Lionsgate to reboot “Dirty Dancing”

Lionsgate is preparing to reboot “Dirty Dancing”. The original choreographer of the movie, Kenny Ortega, is going to direct the new film, according to Access Hollywood.

Dirty Dancing was one of the most iconic love stories ever told on the big screen.  The plot is characteristic to the 80s: the daughter of a respectable doctor’s family falls in love with a rebel who is a dance instructor at a fancy retreat.  The dancer is played by Patrick Swayze and the doctor’s daughter is played by Jennifer Grey.

Now, Lionsgate plans to reboot the movie and Ortega is the key to its success. “The opportunity to direct ‘Dirty Dancing’ is like returning home for me”, the director said in a statement. “Growing up in the 60’s, on the dance floor helped define me as a person and as an artist. I am looking forward to assembling a great creative team and an exciting cast to bring ‘Dirty Dancing’ to the screen for a new generation”, he added. Ortega then put actor and dancer Patrick Swayze on the same pedestal as the older generation of actors-dancers, such as Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, saying that he “set the bar for men dancing in the movies.” The director ‘s opinion is that the trend should not stop as there are many talents waiting to be discovered. “I believe everywhere you look there is evidence that the talent is out there and I can’t wait to begin the process of discovering the next breakout triple-threats.”

25 years after “Dirty Dancing” was released, people still talk about the hot dancing scenes in the movie and still find the idea of the movie, attractive. Joe Drake, co-Chief Operating Officer of Lionsgate believes that this is the perfect time to add a modern touch to the story.

Where is the original cast now?

Patrick Swayze (Johnny Castle) – the actor passed away of pancreatic cancer in 2009. He left behind his wife for 34 years, Lisa Niemi. He received his diagnosis in 2008. He stayed active until his death, at 57 years old.

Jennifer Grey (Frances “Baby” Houseman) – age 51; she won the “Dancing With The Stars “contest, season 11; prior to the contest she underwent a tumor removal surgery and is now healthy. She is married to actor Clark Gregg since 2001 and they have a daughter, Stella, who is 10 years old.

Cynthia Rhodes (Penny Johnson) – age 54; she is married to 6-years-younger singer Richard Marx since 1989. They have three children. She retired from acting in 1991. The family lives in Lake Bluff, Illinois.

Jerry Orbach (Dr, Jake Houseman) – the actor passed away in 2004 at 64 years old. He spent the last ten years of his life battling cancer. His agent announced that the actor died on December 28, 2004 of prostate cancer.

One of the most memorable Dirty Dancing scenes is the one in which Baby enters the room of Castle for the first time. Will the new movie be able to capture a scene that would become as iconic as this one?

“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” movie scores 54 million dollars at the box office

“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” scores an incredible 54 million dollars at the box office in the first weekend.  The sum defied all expectations, adding 20 million dollars to the best forecast made, The Hollywood Reporter announces.

Before the premiere of the film, that is relaunching a franchise which is decades old, the expectations were not that optimistic for the first weekend at the box office. Despite the great word of mouth, the movie was expected to cash in about 30 million dollars. And there came the surprise. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” cashed in almost double: 54 million dollars.

One of the top attractions of the film was the incredibly human monkeys. They are so realistic that their resemblance to humans struck even more. The images were created with the help of advanced performance capture technology.  The movie, directed by Rupert Wyatt, is starring Andy Serkis, James Franco, Frida Pinto and John Lithgow. Although the movie is appealing to all ages and sexes, women weren’t among the most expected in the audience. Despite that, according to the exit polls they counted for 44% of the total audience.
Financed by Fox, Dune Entertainment and Ingenious, the movie had a budget of 93 million dollars.

The weekend’s other cinema choices were “The Change-Up”, “The Smurfs” and “Cowboys and Aliens”. “The Change-Up” landed on number four in the Box Office, cashing in only 13.5 million dollars. The Smurfs added 21 millions this weekend to a total domestic cume of 76.2 million dollars. This weekend, Cowboys and Aliens cashed in 15.8 millions for a domestic total of 67.4 million dollars.

The actress was best known for the role in Grease, in 1978. She played the part of Cha Cha Di Gregorio, who was known to be the best dancer, as she herself states: “They call me Cha Cha. Because I’m the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s.”

Cha Cha Di Gregorio outdanced all of Rydell High in the dance competition, after pulling Danny Zuko (played by John Travolta) by her side, as her partner, leaving Sandy (Olivia Newton John) with no dance partner and indirectly pushing her to make the change of look.
Cha Cha is the second character from Grease that we have to say goodbye to for good, after co-star Jeff Conaway’s death in May. The actor who played Kenickie passed away at only 60 years of age, due to medication overdose and pneumonia complications. He had been trying to treat what he thought was a common cold with medication and had arrived to the hospital in an unconscious state. After a two-week induced coma, he was taken off the machines and died one day later.

George Clooney dating Stacy Keibler

Is George Clooney dating Stacy Keibler? According to a source who talked to the Us Magazine, it is not just a rumor. And more than that, multiple sources state that the two are serious when it comes to a long term relationship.

About a month after officially breaking-up with Elisabetta Canalis, Hollywood actor George Clooney is rumored to be dating blonde actress Stacy Keibler. One source confirms that “It’s more than just a fling” between Clooney, 51, and Keibler, 30. According to the source, the two have known each other for “four or five years”, but they did not think about dating until recently. They were reunited through a mutual friend.  The two have been spotted together in London and again in Italy, at George Clooney’s Lake Como home.
 
An insider claims that the couple is now exclusive. “They’re basically exclusive at this point” as they enjoy each other’s company. “They like each other’s sense of humor. Obviously they’re both physically attracted to one another.”

However, the couple wants to keep their romance private for the time being, according to another source. “I don’t see her hitting any the red carpets with him”, the source says.
George Clooney broke-up with his former girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, in June 2011 because apparently each had other plans for the immediate future. While she wanted to settle down, get married and have children, he wanted nothing but to remain a bachelor. Despite the fact that Canalis tried to ignore the rumors of the split by saying the mass media is not well informed or just mean, and Clooney’s father wanted his son to have a family again, Clooney, who had already been through the marriage experience once, said he was not tailored to be a husband.

Keibler split from her last boyfriend, actor Geoff Stults, in May 2010, after a relationship that lasted five years.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp, highest paid in Hollywood

Hollywood actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp are the highest paid male actors in the business, according to the Forbes Top. Depp topped the list last year, but this time he drops to second place. The new No.1 is Leo DiCaprio, who made an impressive jump from the 5th to 1st place this year.

Over the last 12 months Johnny Depp has earned 50 million dollars. This is not bad at all, but considering that last year he earned 75 million dollars, it is only natural that he would fall from the No.1 spot in the Forbes Highest paid actors list.

Leonardo DiCaprio cashed in 77 million dollars from May 2010 to May 2011. His highest paid roles in the past years were the ones in the movies “Shutter Island” and “Inception”, from which he gained a total sum of 1.2 billion dollars.

Both actors had a promising start at the beginning of their careers, but they both turned down the more commercial roles that would have brought them the immediate success. Depp started with the TV show “21 Jump Street” which brought him the fame, but did not settle for action hero roles. Instead, he cared more about choosing characters he could shape. His work has been rewarded with the first movie in the franchise “The Pirates of the Caribbean”, where he became Captain Jack Sparrow.

Leonardo DiCaprio has starred in several roles as a teenager before landing the role in the movie that made him famous: Titanic. Like Depp, instead of going for the superhero roles, or choosing the romantic comedies, he opted for working with great directors, such as Danny Boyle (“The Beach”), Martin Scorsese (“Gangs of New York”) and Steven Spielberg (“Catch Me If you can”).

The Top five of the highest paid actors also includes Adam Sandler, Will Smith and Tom Hanks.

Paz de la Huerta pleads guilty on assault charge

Actress Paz de la Huerta got in trouble with the law. She was charged with assaulting a reality show star back in March. Now, she pleads guilty and gets her sentence.

Actress Paz de la Huerta, who gained popularity for her role in Boardwalk Empire, is only 26 years old and already in trouble with the law. Some would say it’s the diva syndrome, other would think it’s a drinking problem. No matter what the verdict on the cause of her behavior is, the facts are uncontestable. The actress was involved in a harassment incident on March 22, 2011. More than that, she was the author of the incident. She reportedly threw a glass at MTV’s reality star Samantha Swetra, while in a chic Manhattan hotel bar. The reality TV star was injured in the incident, as a piece of glass lodged in her leg. Swerta is best known for her appearance in The City.

After acknowledging her deed in court, the actress says “I’m extremely glad this is over.” She also states that she believes Swetra is just looking for attention from the media. “I’m a real actress – HBO. She’s a publicity-seeker, a fake actress,” she had told the police.

De la Huerta is now looking at a sentence that includes one day of community service and 10 or 12 days into a rehab clinic. She will be booked for an alcohol treatment program as part of her plea.

María de la Paz Elizabeth Sofía Adriana de la Huerta is a model-turned-actress. Her role as Lucy Danziger in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire gained her the much needed attention of the public. Born and raised in SoHo, New York City, she attended Saint Ann’s School, the same school as Zac Posen. Their childhood friendship brought them together in the fashion sector. She modeled for him numerous times and became his muse. In April, Paz was ranked #84 on the Maxim magazine’s hottest female celebrities.

For fighter Gina Carano, Haywire is her big screen debut. The movie has a heavy Hollywood cast, which includes Michael Douglas Antonio Banderas, Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton and Channing Tatum.

But in 2009, the 29-year-old fighter-turned-actress lost to Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, thus ending her line of undefeated run in her career. Since then, there was only one fight set up this year in April. Carano had to challenge Sarah D’Alielo. However, despite the high expectations of the fans and the clearance given by Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, the Strikeforce show which had to take place in Houston was cancelled. Gina Carano’s doctor did not give her the green light and did not share the reasons.

Gina Carano, 29, had other movie appearances before. She starred in the film Ring Girls, based on the true story of five American women going to Vegas and fighting the most famous female fighters in the world. Carano also appeared in the reality show Fight Girls, on NBC’s American Gladiators and in Michael Jai White’s film, Blood and Bone.

Haywire was written by Lem Dobbs and directed by Steven Soderbergh. The movie is due to hit theaters in January 2012.

Eva Longoria training for striptease scenes

Actress Eva Longoria is getting some training lessons for a striptease scene in “Desperate Housewives”. She is now a regular client at the S Factor gym, where she is learning pole dancing.

Sexy Latina Eva Longoria has a pretty busy schedule this summer. Her character in Desperate Housewives, Gabrielle Solis, will show one of her many talents in the upcoming season that starts this fall: striptease. A friend of Eva told HollywoodLife.com that the actress is going to the gym every day: “Eva has been taking one-on-one sessions at S Factor,” the friend said. “She’s getting busy because her character has some pole dancing, striptease scenes on ‘Desperate Housewives’ this season.”

The S factor gym, which is located in Los Angeles, is run by Sheila Kelley and it is specialized in pole dancing classes, which not only develop the sensuality of the body, but they are also a great workout. The gym is frequented regularly by another actress who plays a lead role in “Desperate Housewives”, Eva’s co-star, Teri Hatcher.

Eva says that she once got a dancing pole as a present from Baywatch star Carmen Electra, but did not practice. The 36-year-old actress says Carmen Electra meant it as a fun present. “Carmen Electra has these stripper poles that she sells, “Longoria explains “She sent me one for Valentine’s Day and told me to have fun.” Eva says she set it up herself. “It is supposed to fit any ceiling”. But she says that even though she tried, she wasn’t too good at it. “I got on it to swing and, ‘Whack!’ I fell on the floor”. So it seems that she will have to work hard for the hot striptease scene in the Desperate Housewives which is due to return on September 25.

Eva Longoria received a Golden Globe nomination in 2006 for her Gabrielle Solis role in Desperate Housewives.
