Angelina Jolie “not opposed” to having more kids

HollywoodNews.com: Angelina Jolie is gearing up for the release of her latest film, “Salt,” on July 23rd, but she recently took some time to talk about marriage and her kids.
She told Vanity Fair, “No, I’m not pregnant. We’re not opposed to it. But we want to make sure we can give everybody special time. They’re kids now, and can play together, but they’re going to need a lot more talking in the middle of the night, like I did with my mom for hours. We want to make sure we don’t build a family so big that we don’t have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well.”
Jolie also adds that she and Brad aren’t “against getting married,” it’s just that they practically are with the commitment that they have with their kids. In addition, she admits that she would love to work with Brad on a movie, just that they’d have to figure out who would watch the kids.

Lindsay Lohan starts filming for new reality show

HollywoodNews.com: Lindsay Lohan has been running around town sporting her SCRAM bracelet, and it looks like it’s going to be documented in more ways than one.
Lindsay and her mom, Dina, will star in a new reality show, reports NY Post. She told them, “We have already started filming. The cameras follow us in our daily lives and as we promote our businesses. I want to prove that we are a good, hardworking family and we don’t have the crazy lives that some people claim we do. The show will feature my kids, and Lindsay will also appear in some episodes, although she’s very busy filming and promoting her fashion lines. We’re discussing a deal with a major network.”
We hope that Lindsay can keep herself together, otherwise it’s going to painful watching another train-wreck in action.

Spike Lee close to landing “Nagasaki Deadline”

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: I don’t generally comment on stories from “Deadline Hollywood,” but this one seems legit (and notably non-sensational) enough to merit commentary. According to Mike Fleming, Spike Lee is wrapping a deal to shoot the modern-day terrorism thriller “Nagasaki Deadline.”
Basically the gist is that it involves a damaged FBI agent who must prevent two (simultaneous?) attacks on US soil while uncovering the apparent historical motives behind the attacks. The project had been bounced around for around a decade, and had even been looked at by Martin Campbell as one of the flurry of post-”Casino Royale” thrillers that he was offered (he eventually decided to remake “Edge of Darkness” and helm “Green Lantern”). But now the project will mark Spike Lee’s first film since “Miracle at St. Anna” in October 2008.
This is exciting news, as there is nothing that pleases me more than seeing A-directors playing in the B-movie sandbox. “Inside Man” sacrificed none of Lee’s moralizing and potent social commentary and none-the-less remained a rock-solid piece of high-quality pop entertainment. Let’s hope that “Nagasaki Deadline” delivers the same level of quality.

‘Toy Story 3′s’ Ken doll makes being metrosexual cool

By Emily Feimster
HollywoodNews.com: Who’da thunk it? The Ken doll was actually ahead of his time. “Toy Story 3,” with Ken voiced by Michael Keaton, confirms what we all intuited long ago — the fact that this doll is… a metrosexual.
In case you hadn’t heard, “metrosexual” is a word to describe a fella who’s proudly concerned with his appearance, from his gelled hairdo to his manicured fingernails. A term first coined in 1994 by British journalist Mark Simpson, the metrosexual male, unlike his scruffy haired, t-shirt wearing counterpart, knows how to moisturize, shop, and behave in public. He’d rather sip a glass of wine than down a 12-pack of beer. And like Ken, he revels in having a walk-in closet full of stylish outfits. It’s a phenomenon that confuses women and affects gaydar.
Just ask Ryan Seacrest, the mother of all metrosexuals. He always wears fashionable clothes, has frosted hair, and normally a well-groomed 5 o’clock shadow. When asked by Larry King if it’s fair for people to call him a metrosexual, Seacrest responded, “Yes, I’m fine with it. I think it’s cool…I’ve made it no secret that I’ve highlighted my hair, and I’ve just — I’ve done these things that I never knew how to do until, when you start a TV show, you have somebody that helps you with things. I think it’s OK for a man to say, I want to take care of myself and be presentable for a woman in my life.” Riiiight.
Soccer icon David Beckham has been known for getting manicures before every match, changing his hair weekly and loving to shop. In fact, he and his Spice Girl wife Victoria, dubbed “Posh and Becks,” seem to enjoy wearing color coordinated outfits at many public events. Gillette gave Beckham a $50,000 diamond-encrusted razor so he can keep a clean shave at all times. He paints his nails and wears sarongs. He goes to the hair salon to get perfect highlights. What’s more, he doesn’t care if you know that. Among his favorite designers are Gucci, Prada, Diesel and Dolce & Gabbana, not to mention his earning around $1,757,000 for modeling Police sunglasses. He does sport the odd diamond earring worth around $12,300, an $87,850 wedding ring, and a limited edition white-gold Panerai watch. It’s enough to make Ken jealous.

What you missed backstage at the Daytime Emmys

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: I’ll have red carpet coverage galore from the 2010 Daytime Emmy Awards later today and lots and lots of bits of news that I picked up from here and there.
Chatted up just about everyone I really wanted to including Susan Lucci, Bonnie Hunt, Tuc Watkins, Michael Muhney, Jon Hensley, Eden Reigel, Brandon Beemer, Mark Hapka, Shawn Christian, Carolyn Hennesey, Doug Davidson, Drew Tyler Bell, Zach Conroy and Austin Peck, among many others.
But first let’s tell you who won what and share some of the backstage dish and the photos I snapped.
While there is debate about the quality of the telecast itself (Dick Clark tribute too long, As the World Turns Tribute too short etc), I must say that it was a dream backstage where everyone was in a good mood, the food they served us was delish, and the WiFi was nice and speedy!

The group shot is the very happy cast of Bold and the Beautiful which won Outstanding Drama for the second straight year.
Executive Producer Bradley Bell, who also won a writing Emmy for the first time, joked backstage that he felt like Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers with the back-to-back wins.
Could there be a three-peat?
One of the more dramatic storylines for the show featured the red-hot Betty White. Prior to the Saturday Night Live campaign and all the rest, White had a recurring on the series over the years as Ann Douglas, mother of Stephanie (Susan Flannery) and Pam (Alley Mills) on the show.
The storyline had Ann returning to Los Angeles to reunite with her estranged daughters before dying.
Agnes Nixon, creator of All My Children and One Life to Live, was in a chatty mood backstage after receiving a well-deserved lifetime achievement award presented to her by Susan Lucci who had said onstage “I would not even be here today if Agnes Nixon had not created Erica Kane.”
Miss Nixon said backstage that she is particularly proud of the social issues tackled on the show over the years such as Erica Kane’s daughter Bianca being a lesbian and having the first same-sex wedding on daytime.
Billy Miller, supporting actor winner for The Young and the Restless (pictured below), seemed pretty calm and collected backstage in contrast to the emotion showed by actor and actress winners Michael Park and Maura West whose show, As the World Turns, has been canceled and filmed its final scenes last [...]

‘As the World Turns’ picks up 3 of the 4 major Emmys

By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: CBS may have cancelled the 54 year old soap, “As the World Turns,” but the show got the last laugh at the network’s expense tonight. It picked up three of the four major acting awards for Michael Park, Maura West and Julie Pinson in Best Actor, Best Actress, and Supporting Actress.
Even though CBS carried the Daytime Emmys, they still managed to kick dirt in “World Turns” direction. They ran a sad, minute long tribute to the show rather than focus attention on its cruel exit from TV. The acting awards will be a nice consolation to the cast and crew. But really: this Daytime Emmy show was an ad for Las Vegas. The soaps were an after thought.
If only Procter & Gamble, the main sponsor of “World Turns,” cared about the show.

What will and won’t be included in final two ‘Harry Potter’ films?

By Whitney Milam
HollywoodNews.com: The Harry Potter fandom is abuzz with speculation on the intriguing new Deathly Hallows stills released today, purported to be captures from the official full-length trailer scheduled to air online tomorrow. A few of the images appear to show moments not found at any point in the book, leading fans to wonder how closely the two-part film will adhere to it, and exactly what beloved scenes will be included.
Personally, I’ll have to Avada Kedavra someone if we don’t get to see Mrs. Weasley’s takedown of Bellatrix or Nagini’s, uh, ‘surprise’ appearance in Godric’s Hollow in all their non-PG-rated glory, and Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis) definitely deserves for his crowning moment of badass to be seen on the big screen. Recent casting developments give us hope that we’ll get to see the epilogue scene and at least part of ‘The Prince’s Tale‘, but will the fimmakers do the Battle of Hogwarts (part of which seems to be pictured above) justice? What moments do you think the Deathly Hallows films can’t do without, and based on what we’ve seen and heard so far, how likely do you think they are to actually be included?
We’ll know a lot more (and have a lot more to obsess over) once tomorrow’s trailer airs, and one fan lucky enough to have seen it already describes it as “the best trailer of the year,” going on to describe its contents in detail, revealing that we’ll see everything from the seven Potters to Hermione as Bellatrix to a destroyed Hogwarts to two different dramatic confrontations between Harry and Voldemort.
How excited are we for tomorrow, Potter fans?

Ian Somerhalder turns ‘Vampire Diaries’ set green

By Whitney Milam
HollywoodNews.com: He may play a smirking, hedonistic vampire with questionable morals on the CW’s Vampire Diaries, but in real life Ian Somerhalder is as sweet as he is sexy.
After tweeting for months about his disgust over the lack of an appropriate response to the Gulf Coast oil disaster, begging for homes for abandoned animals, and urging his fans to be environmentally conscious, Somerhalder–who is originally from Louisiana–has announced that the Vampire Diaries cast and crew will be doing their part to help the environment on their Atlanta set when they switch from the “dirty gas” generators used in most film and television productions to brand new solar, wind, or biodiesel-fueled green generators developed by the Go Green Mobile company this year.
“It takes a lot of power to run a movie set. We go through a lot of fuel,” Somerhalder explains. “It’s harmful, and we can start changing that a little bit. We can get rid of these noisy, stinky, disgusting gas generators… Greening the ‘Vampire Diaries’ set is a priority for me, which we’re going to be doing this year.” With any luck, others in the industry will follow his example.
Somerhalder and the rest of the cast begin filming for the second season of Vampire Diaries later this summer in time for its return in the fall. Until then, we can all get our vampire fix with True Blood and Eclipse this summer.

Chris Brown breaks down during his tribute to Michael Jackson

HollywoodNews.com: This past week has been filled with more Michael Jackson tributes than we can count to celebrate the one year anniversary of his death. However, Chris Brown finally got his chance to pay homage to the “King of Pop” during a tribute melody at the BET Awards.
His standing ovation performance ran through the songs “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Billie Jean,” and then ended with “Man in the Mirror.” Brown swooned his way through Jackson’s signature moves and gave it his all on stage. During the last track, Brown choked up and started bursting into tears so much that he had a hard time finishing the track.
Considering the Awards didn’t have enough time to do a tribute last year, it’s safe to say that Brown pulled through and made everyone proud.
What did you think of his performance?
