The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1: New Footage!

SPOILER ALERT: 

Peeta is alive.

In a new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Katniss is gearing up for a battle against the Capitol when she’s stopped in her brave tracks by a video that doesn’t just feature her quasi boyfriend… it features him sending an unexpected message.

Peeta is seen telling all rebels to “lay down their weapons” and when Katniss defends him as being forced to do so by President Snow, Gale responds harshly.

“Everyone has a choice, Katniss, and I’d rather die than say what he just said,” Liam Hemsworth says in the sneak peek.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is a mouthful.

It’s also third film in this beloved sci-fi series, which is based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novels.

The film will feature the return of many familiar faces, including Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Willow Shields, Woody Harrelson and late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

It will be released on November 21 and Lorde will sing the main single on the soundtrack.

Here’s an early look at various photos from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.

Kris Jenner on Bruce Jenner Dating Rumors: I Hope He’s Doing His Thing!

So much for Kris Jenner crying herself to sleep every night.

According to multiple reports over the weekend, Bruce Jenner is dating Ronda Kamihira, the long-time personal assistant and closest friends of his estranged wife.

A follow-up rumor then alleged that ​Kris Jenner is agony over this betrayal, but the reality star called in to Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM today and didn’t sound especially distraught.

Bruce and Kris Jenner in 2012


Awww, remember when? Bruce and Kris Jenner act all silly circa 2012 in this photo. They have since split up.

“I have no idea what Bruce does in his personal time,” the mother of six said. “We’ve been apart for a long time.”

Kris, who shares daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner with Bruce, only kind words to say overall about the ex-Olympian.

“He is the greatest guy, a wonderful dad, and he and I are good friends,” she said. “Everybody is very happy. I know I’m in a really good place. And I hope he is too. I hope he’s doing his thing and having a good time.”

Aside from chatter of Bruce dating her BFF, there’s also been talking that Bruce Jenner wants a sex change.

In a separate chat with Entertainment Weekly earlier in the week, Kris wouldn’t exactly shoot down this possibility.

“I don’t know what he’s going through right now,” she said. “I think he’s just very happy and I think every time he makes a change in his life whether it’s emotional or physical or whatever he’s doing, somebody’s going to comment.”

Well, yeah. Especially if that changes involves adding boobs and a vagina to a man’s body.

She agreed to Keeping Up with the Kardashians...


… as a way to promote her family’s clothing boutiques. She brought the idea to E! with the help of Ryan Seacrest.

Sofia Vergara Do You Love Or Hate Her Angel Ball Gown?

2014 Angel BallParents-to-be Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds weren’t the only celebs at the 2014 Angel Ball. Sofia Vergara was also at the event. Check out her red carpet gown. RELATED: Was Sofia Vergara’s Emmy skit sexist?

The pattern is definitely eye catching, but one thing the ‘Modern Family’ star doesn’t deviate from is the form-fitting gown that flatters her famous curves. Sofia knows what works for her! I can see why she went with this lively print; it’s just different enough to change things up a bit. I’m a fan. I bet Joe Manganiello would approve of this gown ;).

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard: Expecting a Baby Boy!

The pregnant Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard have confirmed, via 19 Kids and Counting network TLC, that they are expecting a baby boy together.

Yes, #BabyDilly is officially gonna be a #BabyDude!

Jill Duggar Baby Gender Announcement

The pregnant Jill Duggar, 23, announced this past August that she is expecting the duo’s first child. Jill married Derick Dillard, 25, in Arkansas on June 21, 2014.

How do they feel about their future baby’s gender?

“I was really excited,” says Derick Dillard. “As a new dad, to have a firstborn son to be our first child and be the leader of his siblings, it is very special.”

“I was praying for a big, healthy baby,” adds Derick about the night before the appointment where they found out. “And Jill added, ‘Just healthy, healthy.'”

The couple told their families the news Saturday.

“Oh yes, there was some screaming in the room,” says, Jill, who is 18 weeks along. “I thought all along we were having a girl. Everyone made their guesses.”

“They were just elated,” adds Jill. “My mom and dad both thought it was going to be a boy and my grandma did, too. They are all really excited.”

The Dillards prepared for the big ultrasound reveal with a big breakfast of waffles with syrup and whipped cream, fruit, chocolate milk and lemonade for Jill.

Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard have some lunch at work. So cute.

“He stretched out his legs full length,” says Jill.

“He was trying to be like Dad.”

This fall’s season of the family reality show has focused heavily on their love story. Tonight’s 19 Kids & Counting Season 14 Episode 13 is even called “All About Jill.”

On the show, they haven’t even gotten hitched yet. In real life, just five months later, they’re shopping for items like overalls, plaid shirts and pants for #BabyDilly.

“We are not going to do a letter theme,” says Jill of what they plan to name the little boy. “But we may do some kind of theme, like family names.”

The fourth-eldest child in the expansive family, Duggar took three tests to determine if she was pregnant after she suspected that she may be expecting.

Following brother Josh Duggar, 26, Jill is the second Duggar to start her own family. Her little sister Jessa Duggar, 21, will wed Ben Seewald November 1.

Jana Duggar is still single. :(

Anyway, congratulations to Jill and Derick on their exciting news, and be sure to tune in tonight to see their amazing journey play out behind the scenes.

Their First Meeting (Sort Of)!


The Arkansas natives grew up within 45 minutes of each other, but didn’t meet until late 2011. Jill recalled when Derick stopped by while caroling with a church group, and not long after, “Derick contacted my dad and asked if he would be a prayer partner during his two-year term in Nepal.”

Norman Reedus on the zombie apocalypse: ‘it’s like Ebola, it makes you value’ life

wenn21822418
The print edition of US Weekly has new interviews with Walking Dead hotties Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln and Steven Yeun. (I’m sorry for just getting to it now. Our digital subscription has not been coming on time.) As we’ve seen, Reedus gives the best interviews. He has some funny anecdotes and a colorful way of speaking. Despite his rugged appeal he’s somewhat sketchy to me as a person, as he’s a 45 year-old man with a 21 year-old girlfriend. US Weekly confirms that Reedus is dating model Cecilia Singley. They’ve been together nearly a year and she was just 20 when they met.

The majority of the interviews focus on the show of course, and I’ll refrain from geeking out and getting into the details. If you’re into WD like me, you can pick up US Weekly. (The one with Kim K and North on the cover.) I’ve read the comics, and I have a good idea where the show is going given the latest plotlines. I won’t give any spoilers today though.

Here are some excerpts from US’ interview with Reedus.

How has this huge success changed your life?
I don’t go to the grocery store so much anymore, you know what I mean? I spend most of the year in Georgia out in the woods, so I don’t see people, but then we do something like Comic Con and it’s insane. A lot of people go, “Isn’t it hard shooting because you don’t take a bath for weeks?” And I’m like, “I shower every day! That’s strategically placed makeup. It’s not real dirt, just to let you know.”

But you do get down and dirty on set. Do you do your own stunts?
As many as I can. I had to deck a huge guy recently, and they swapped out the actor with a stunt double who was, like, made of rock. I’m looking at him going, “This is going to hurt.” And it did. I woke up with whiplash the next morning. Last season I had stitches on my forehead. This season I had stitches on my forearm. I’ve had four black eyes, a dislocated shoulder. We all get beat up, but you go home and it seems like a good day’s work.

Who do you pal around with on set?
Andrew Lincoln is definitely my BFF. We’ll be doing serious scenes, and I’ll lean over and go, “Love you,” under my breath. And he’ll lean over and go, “F-k you.” During one scene last year when he crawled out of the window, I was at the bottom with my pants down, mooning him.

Do you guys ever trade ideas on what started the zombie apocalypse?
We all have theories: It’s man-made, or it’s Mother Nature. It’s like Ebola – it makes you value the time and people you have left.

[From US Magazine, print edition, October 27, 2014]

Andrew Lincoln talked about his character, Rick, and about how good the special effects team is and how they can still creep out the actors. He said that “if the effects team sees us look revolted and grimace, they’ve done their job properly.” Steven Yeun claimed that he enjoys scaring his on-screen wife, Lauren Cohan (Maggie) on set. “Just last night, I hopped out of the dark, scared the crap out of her and ran away. Then, 20 feet later, I hid behind a car and scared her again. I get so much joy watching people squirm!” I’m sorry, but I hate when people do that. It’s so mean.

As for Reedus’ quotes on Ebola, I don’t think he’s comparing Ebola to the zombie apocalypse like, clinically. I think he’s saying that public health epidemics can make you realize how precious life is and how quickly you can lose friends and family. I also like how Reedus described his friendship with Lincoln. They remind me a little of Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard on True Blood. Hot bros.

Here are the guys at Paleyfest on October 11. Of course I would still hit Andrew Lincoln until we were raw, but I prefer him with scruff. Also, this story needs more Chad Coleman.

Ariana Grande Asks Miley Cyrus For Advice: Help Me Make the Diva Rumors Stop!

For months now, Ariana Grande diva rumors have been circulating online and in the tabloids, detailing the singer’s mistreatment of fans and staff, as well as her borderline psychotic demands.

Ari claims that she’s got nothing in common with the sharp-tongued egomaniac that’s portrayed by the press, and that she’s deeply hurt by the false reports of diva behavior.

So hurt, in fact, that she did what so many of us would like to do in our darkest hour – she called up Miley Cyrus and was like, Girl, make it stop!

  • Ariana Grande Blows (Kisses)
  • Miley Cyrus Acting Weird

“I was upset and I contacted Miley,” Ariana said in a recent interview with MTV.

“She was like, ‘Girl don’t even look at it. Just be happy that you’re blessed. You have family and friends that love you. You have fans that love you who know what’s true and what’s not.”

Wow. We would’ve thought Miley’s advice would be more along the lines of smoke a ton of weed and put some weird crap on Instagram, and you’ll feel better instantly!

Instead, she offered some genuinely thoughtful input. It’s like these days, she’s twerkin’ with her head…or something.

Anyway, for whatever reason, rumors of Ari’s diva behavior have seemed to subside in recent weeks.

Grande is officially dating Big Sean now, so maybe the relationship has calmed her down, or perhaps it’s just given the media something else to focus on. 

Hopefully Miley will be able to offer some advice when the inevitable reports of “drama” between Ari and Sean begin to surface online. 

Her Name Was Inspired By a Cartoon


Ariana’s name was inspired by Princess Oriana from Felix the Cat!

Oscar Pistorius sentenced to 5 years in prison for culpable homicide

wenn5960292

Last month, Oscar Pistorius was found not guilty of premeditated murder of Reeva Steenkamp. A day later, he was found guilty of “culpable homicide,” which in America we would call manslaughter. Now, more than a month later, the sentencing phase of Pistorius’ trial is finally over. I sort of thought the sentencing phase was more offensive than the trial, and that’s saying something because the trial included Oscar’s melodramatic theatrics as he tried to cover up his crime. Pistorius’ defense has claimed throughout the sentencing that Oscar is the big victim here, that he’s already been “punished” and that the sentence should just be house arrest and community service. Well, the judge didn’t go as hard on Oscar as she could have, but still… she gave him jail time.

Oscar Pistorius was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp by a South African judge who cited the “gross negligence” he showed when he shot her multiple times through a toilet cubicle door in his home.

Judge Thokozile Masipa also sentenced the double-amputee Olympian to three years in prison for unlawfully firing a gun in a restaurant in a separate incident weeks before Steenkamp’s 2013 shooting death. She ordered that sentence to be wholly suspended.

Masipa delivered her ruling after reviewing prosecution arguments for a tough sentence as well as the defense case for a more lenient punishment for Pistorius.

Pistorius killed Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day last year, shooting her through a toilet door in his home. Pistorius testified that the shooting was an accident because he mistook his girlfriend for a nighttime intruder. Masipa convicted him of culpable homicide, or negligent killing, but acquitted him of murder.

Pistorius stood as the judge announced his sentence, and then left the courtroom and walked down a flight of stairs that lead to holding cells. His sentence starts immediately.

Legal experts said the section Judge Masipa quoted when she handed down Pistorius’ sentence provides that his prison term be a maximum of five years and the runner could be eligible for house arrest after serving eight months in jail.

[From People]

Oh, a MAXIMUM of five years. But if he behaves, it could be as short as eight months in prison? For the love of God. I guess it’s good to be a celebrity athlete in ANY country, right? I do have to wonder – would the trial and the sentencing have been any different if Oscar Pistorius hadn’t been A) a famous athlete or B) white? This whole thing has been so shady and gross. I feel so sorry for Reeva’s poor parents.

Ryan Phillippe: ‘I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years; 5 of them are good’

Ryan Phillippe

Ryan Phillippe is promoting his directorial debut, Catch Hell. Ryan co-wrote the script with a friend (Joe Gossett) and stars in the main role. Ryan says he “kind of plays himself,” which is to say he plays an actor whose career has hit a lull. Not-Ryan is a character who gets chased by the paparazzi but can’t land a movie. I don’t know how close this is to the truth. Ryan hardly ever gets papped these days. He may simply be good at evading the cameras.

Ryan certainly feels like his acting career isn’t the greatest. He spoke with the LA Times about how he dislikes all of his films — except for five of them, which he does not name. Mystery! Cruel Intentions has to be one of the good ones. The movie was pure cheese but a guilty pleasure for many. I hope Ryan’s not dissing that movie, especially since he met the mother of his children during filming. I bet Ryan considers Flags of Our Fathers to be one of his good movies since Clint Eastwood directed it. He probably also liked Gosford Park; Crash was emotionally manipulative, but it won Best Picture, right? So he’s gonna be proud of that one. Maybe Lincoln Lawyer?

The turning point in Ryan’s career — 2011: “I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent [the heist flick, Setup]. It was just a situation I didn’t want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business.”

Where he is now: “It’s certainly not a lament of mine that I’ve fallen out of favor in Hollywood. I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years. And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you’re an actor for hire. So this is kind of the beginning of my wanting to take a little more control and be a little more involved.”

He’s tiring of acting: “Acting alone doesn’t sustain me the same way it used to. Which I think is completely OK if you’ve done something for 20 years. Trying something else becomes really appealing.”

His first time directing: “I love it bleeding together and being a question of how much is directly related to me or isn’t. I’m proud of this movie. I came in on time and under budget. I got it done, and it is what it is. It’s not giant. But I can’t wait to do the next one — especially since I won’t be required to be on-camera the whole time.”

[From LA Times]

I don’t know how to feel about this newfound trend of actors trashing their films. It bugs. Why must they appear so ungrateful for roles that struggling actors would love to play?

Ryan recently spoke about his co-parenting efforts with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon. They’ve led a relatively drama-free divorce. American citizen Reese has had far more drama on her own. Anyway, Ryan said he and Reese went on a family walk through Central Park and talked about how they shot Cruel Intentions there. Ava and Deacon “were tripping out on the fact that we were there shooting a movie before they were even a thought in our minds.” I doubt Reese and Ryan went into great detail about this movie, right? The kids will see it on their own someday. And they will be sooo embarrassed to see their parents get it on.
