Bradley Cooper is a sloppy snogger
It appears Bradley Cooper isn’t so perfect after all. He’s confessed he has a flaw – he’s wet kisser.
The Hangover III star revealed his problem on The Graham Norton Show, admitting his co-star Jennifer Lawrence called him a sloppy snogger when they were filming Silver Linings Playbook.
“After the second take she [Lawrence] said, “You’re a wet kisser.” You don’t want to hear that. It was not a compliment.”
Baz’s big mistake
Meanwhile, Baz Luhrmann has confessed on The Graham Norton Show that he turned down the chance to direct Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
The Great Gatsby filmmaker revealed he wasn’t aware of JK Rowling’s books when Warner Bros asked him to make the first movie in the franchise.
“The first one came along and they rang me, and while I love the pictures and the books now, then I thought, ‘What’s that?’ And said, ‘Well that sounds interesting, but I’m thinking of doing a reinvention of the modern musical’, and that was Moulin Rouge,” he explained.
“So I’m an obvious idiot, because I should have taken Harry Potter.”
He’s not the only director who passed. Steven Spielberg was offered the chance to direct “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” but he wanted to make the adaptations animated features instead of live-action movies.
Amanda: I don’t do drugs, but I need another nose job
Last week, Amanda Bynes was arrested and taken in for psychiatric evaluation after she allegedly tossed a bong out of her 36th floor window.
In court, while wearing an obvious wig — she told the judge that the bong was actually a vase. She was released and will have to report back to court in July.
As for the wig? By the looks of her mugshot (which has not officially been released, but was spotted on police documents, see it here), Bynes has had a Britney-style meltdown moment and shaved her hair off.
According to RadarOnline.com Amanda’s parents are now trying to have the star committed to an in-patient treatment at a psychiatric hospital, while attempting to gain conservatorship.
Meanwhile, since she no longer has a publicist, Amanda has been doing her own damage control via Twitter: “I only smoke tobacco I don’t drink or do drugs. I’ve never had a bong in my life! I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot!”
And then … she’s been doing her own damage: “Don’t believe the reports about me being arrested. It’s all lies. I was sexually harassed by one of the cops two nights ago which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a bong out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious. He slapped my vagina. Sexual harassment. Big deal. I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated. Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive. I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn’t let me. The cops were creepy. The cop sexually harassed me, they found no pot on me or bong outside my window. That’s why the judge let me go. Don’t believe any reports.”
I think “don’t believe any of the tweets” might be more accurate.
Amanda attacks Rihanna
Ah, too much Amanda for just one slide.
After she’d finished defending herself on Twitter, Amanda Bynes turned her attention to Rihanna and slammed her.
“U look so ugly tryin’ to be white,” said the first message.
“Chris Brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough,” she then tweeted. “No one wants to be your lover so you call everyone and their mother.”
Rihanna replied: “Ya see what happens why they cancel Intervention?”
Amanda shot back: “unlike your fugly faced self I don’t do drugs! U need the intervention dog! I met your ugly face in person. U aren’t pretty u know know!”
All the tweets were deleted soon after, but not before they’d been screen grabbed by various shocked followers.
As Dlisted commented: “When RiRi comes off as the classy and sane individual, I just don’t even know anymore.”
It’s a rock vs reality TV fued
Also at Twitter war are Kim Kardashian’s half-sister Kendall Jenner and Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain.
The feud began when Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Jenner, 17, tweeted: “Just wish things could be easier sometimes man.”
Cobain, 20, replied: “Oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned & homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn’t accessible. Oh ya, not to mention, CANCER, famine, poverty, draught, disease, natural disasters, Death. F—, Humans are so self involved . . . I’d like to thank my parents for providing me with a high IQ & I’d like to thank my grams for encouraging me not to be a self absorbed idiot.”
Jenner deleted her initial tweet, but two days later fired back.
“An individuals feelings are relative to their environment. you don’t know me, you don’t even know what I was referring to. I am aware that I am very privileged and blessed, and I’m thankful for that everyday. I know there are greater problems . . . in the world. I pray for those people every night and give back as much as I can. So who are you to judge me?”
Morgan: I wasn’t sleeping
Morgan Freeman, 75, has come up with a great excuse for dozing off during a recent live television interview with his Now You See Me co-star Michael Caine.
He took to his Facebook page and explained: “Regarding my recent interview, I wasn’t actually sleeping. I’m a beta tester for Google Eyelids and I was merely taking the opportunity to update my Facebook page.”
Alyssa’s breastfeeding confession
She’s starring as a married woman who has an affair with a co-worker in the new TV series Mistresses, but Alyssa Milano has told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel that the steamy scenes weren’t quite as sexy off-screen.
The pilot was shot right after Milano gave birth to her son, Milo in 2011. “I was still breastfeeding which made those love scenes really, really sexy… let me tell you,” she joked.
Plus, she would halt filming every two hours to either nurse or pump.
In 2011, Alyssa told Best for Babes that Milo was “a pro at latching on” from the moment he was born. “The thing I like best about breastfeeding is the closeness I feel to Milo and knowing that he’s getting the best of me,” she said.
No gravity in space sex
Sandra Bullock has been joking about hanky panky with George Clooney in their upcoming space thriller Gravity.
She told Access Hollywood : “Oh my gosh, there’s so much space sex in this film. People don’t understand how we did it. It’s a lot slower than in real life because of the whole zero gravity thing. But it takes us a good 45 minutes to actually get from beginning to end, so [the audience] might nod out a little bit, but the end, the climax is amazing! Imagine how difficult those suits were to take off. Yeah, it’s amazing. So, I’d say I know you’re gonna get tired watching it, but it’s worth the wait. Space sex.”
Relax, she’s just kidding. We think.
Geri Halliwell attacked by dropbear
Geri Halliwell has been playing tourist in Sydney with her daughter Bluebell before starting her role on Australia’s Got Talent.
She headed to Taronga Zoo yesterday and had a few close encounters of the animal kind.
Her meeting with a koala went slightly awry, however. She tweeted: ‘I stepped in koala poo & he peed on my hand bag – no probs. X’
She also took in the seal show and got up close and personal with one afterwards, tweeting “kiss!”
It seems she’s loving her new life Down Under, as she also tweeted: “Australia u have touched my heart’, ‘I love u Australia’ and ‘I’m in absolute heaven. Thanku Australia.”
Billy Joel’s depression battle
The singer has confessed in an interview with the New York Times that he became depressed and started drinking heavily after the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
“I was kind of in a mental fog, and it had nothing to do with the booze. My mind wasn’t right. I wasn’t focused. I went into a deep, deep depression after 9/11. 9/11 just knocked the wind out of me, and I don’t know even now if I’ve recovered from it,” he explains.
“It really, really hurt that man could do that to man. And then there was a breakup with somebody, and it took me a while to get me back on my feet again.”
“I started with Dewars White Label Scotch and then, when I really got heavy into it, it was vodka. Vodka is a hard-core alky drink. I could take it in shots or I could just mix it with something. I can’t even smell the stuff anymore. It makes me sick. But it wasn’t consistent, it would be periods of time, during a divorce or something.”
He reveals that he entered the Betty Ford Center in 2005 after his ex-wife Katie Lee told him, “You’re drinking way too much.”
