Immigration officials in the UK are investigating claims that Emma Watson's American housekeeper could have worked for her illegally. Reports suggest the maid may have worked at Watson's London home while she held a tourist visa. Tourist visas bar foreign citizens from working in the UK.

Like the English elite University hegemony of Oxford and Cambridge, the US Ivy League produces a vast array of talent in various fields. The majority of the political elite pass through the likes of Harvard and Yale amongst scientists, scholars and various minds of significant creative ingenuity.

Emma Watson Joins The List Of Celebrity Graduates


Emma Watson John Legend James Franco Lupita Nyong'o

It’s no Hogwarts, but it just might be the next best thing. Actress Emma Watson, best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the hit franchise Harry Potter, recently graduated from the Ivy League school Brown University for a degree in English literature. Enrolling in the school in 2009, the degree had been a work in progress as Watson took breaks in between to finish off the remaining Harry Potter films, and she even worked on her schooling abroad as she studied at Oxford University in England, as well. You’d think adapting to the college life could be difficult for someone with such a star status, but Watson said it was pretty easy adjusting. "I've never even been asked for an autograph on campus," she said in an interview in 2013. "I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook."

Emma Watson Red CarpetEmma Watson graduated from Brown University

Watson joins the list of quite a few celebrities that have graduated from top tier schools, and it’s an admirable accomplishment whether it was done before they became famous, or after. In fact, there’s probably a ton of your favorite celebrities that you never even knew had a degree in some weird categories completely unrelated to their career choice. Either way, for these actors and musicians, they’ve proven that at one point or another, an A mark was once a more important accolade than an Oscar or a Grammy.

'Noah': An Epic Of Biblical Proportions Taking America By Storm


Russell Crowe Darren Aronofsky Jennifer Connelly Emma Watson

Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky has experimented with most genres over the course of his career, from brainy freak-out ('Pi') to gritty self-discovery ('The Wrestler') by way of intense drama ('Requiem for a Dream'), personal sci-fi odyssey ('The Fountain') and psychological horror ('Black Swan'). We've learned long ago to stop expecting what he'd tackle next, but no one saw the biblical epic on his to-do list.

Noah Russell Crowe
Russell Crowe Plays The Titular Ark-Builder In Darren Aronofsky's Biblical Epic.

Indeed, Noah isn't the usual biblical epic. Aronofsky has completely jettisoned the style of more reverential films for something much darker and more complex. It has understandably divided critics; some find it bloated and uneven, while others see something deep and provocative. But the one group that seems unsure what to make of it is America's notoriously powerful religious subculture.

Emma Watson And Other Celebrities Who Don't Date Famous People


Emma Watson Elizabeth Banks Matt Damon Julia Roberts Reese Witherspoon

Not all celebrities are part of a high profile power couple like Beyonce and Jay-Z, or Brad and Angelina. Some celebrities opt for a hint of normalcy in their personal lives and shack up with regular folk. Emma Watson has revealed that she won’t date other famous people. “I don’t date people who are famous”, the Noah actress explained. Watson is currently in a relationship with Oxford University student Matt Janney, although she did add that a dating non-famous can be tough too, “I don’t think it’s fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me.”

Emma Watson isn’t the only celeb to be involved with another non-famous partner. Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso have been happily married since 2005. The pair met in a bar while Damon was filming Stuck on You with Greg Kinnear and they now have four daughters. “I hit the jackpot with my wife”, Damon told The Guardian. Well, ain't that nice?

Noah Review


OK

Darren Aronofsky continues to ambitiously experiment with genres in this Old Testament blockbuster, but this is his first real misstep as a filmmaker, as the impressive parts simply don't add up. Still, there are flashes of genius as the epic struggle between good and evil is echoed both in the grand spectacle and within the characters themselves.

It starts with the original sin, which divides Adam and Eve's sons - brutal killer Cain and peaceful caretaker Seth - into warring factions. A few generations later, all that's left of Seth's righteous line is Noah (Russell Crowe), his wife (Jennifer Connelly) and three sons (Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth and Leo McHugh Carroll), plus an adopted daughter (Emma Watson). After he has a vision that God is planning to cleanse mankind with a flood, Noah consults his grandfather Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins) and builds an ark to save his family and all of earth's animals. He also gets help from the Watchers, rock-encrusted fallen angels who previously assisted Cain's descendant Tubal (Ray Winstone), who goes into battle mode to stop Noah.

All of this is inventively set in a post-apocalyptic landscape left in ruins after generations of fighting. And Noah is the last true believer tending to creation, refusing to eat meat (although he wears leather accessories) and ruling over his family like a tyrant. This of course creates various carefully scripted conflicts for his family over the months they're stuck in the ark. But the moralising is never as deep as it pretends to be.

'Noah' Storms Debut Box Office, Riding Wave Of Controversy To No.1


Russell Crowe Darren Aronofsky Emma Watson Jennifer Connelly Douglas Booth

Noah has swept to success in its debut weekend, having opened in the USA. Darren Aronofsky's controversial new biblical epic took a massive $44 million over the weekend, which sent the film sailing past last week's number one movie, Divergent, according to Box Office Mojo. Russell Crowe takes the titular lead in this big budget hard-hitter, starring alongside Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly and Douglas Booth.

New Russell Crowe Epic 'Noah' Has Swept To Success In Its Opening Weekend.

It hasn't all been plain sailing for the latest movie from the Black Swan director. Noah has faced religious opposition and subsequent bans in certain Middle Eastern countries due to the fear of religious provocation. What's more, early reviewers simply weren't fussed by Aronofsky's lengthy epic, yet this negativity seems to have been turned around since more Noah reviews have flooded in, sending the movie's Rotten Tomatoes rating skywards.

Emma Watson On 'Noah': Aronofsky "Had To Adapt It For The Screen"


Emma Watson Russell Crowe

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah has certainly been ripe for criticism. Religious groups were against it from the start, with many detractors claiming it strayed far too far from the original text. But for one of the film’s marquee stars, Emma Watson – who plays Noah’s (Russell Crowe) adopted daughter Ila – adaptation was imperative in telling the story. 

Emma Watson NoahEmma Watson in Noah

"Darren does these very dark, very intense, very gritty, very real films," explained Watson to Nola.com. "And then Noah is kind of -- you see this guy with the long beard and there's the animals. ... You can't really picture it. I think it's a really original take on a genre, on a story, on an idea," she added to Nola.com.

The Career Evolution Of Emma Watson


Emma Watson

Not all child stars manage to make the transition into credible adult actors as swiftly as Emma Watson has. From a frizzy haired 11 year old with a slight tendency to overact to a certified glamour goddess with a pristine record for acclaimed performances, Watson has left her Hermione days in the past and become a fully fledged Hollywood actress.

Emma's come a long way since her Harry Potter days

Harry Potter fans watched Emma Watson grow up on screen, each movie that came out the cast were practically unrecognizable from their previous appearance, and before we knew it they were all grown up. When one actor has played a high profile part for such a long time it can be difficult to disassociate them from that role, here lies the problem for many child stars.

'Noah' Basks In Warmer Ratings After Early Flood Of Critical Scorn


Russell Crowe Emma Watson Jennifer Connelly Darren Aronofsky

Box office prospects are beginning to look brighter for Noah, Darren Aronofsky's new biblical epic. Opening in the USA today, the Russell Crowe-starring blockbuster's commercial success fell into doubt after several Middle Eastern countries raced to ban the Genesis story and early critics issued a collective non-committal shrug. Noah was initially rated in the low 70's on Rotten Tomatoes but this number has climbed to 77% today, indicating a rising interest in the film now that the waters have calmed.

Things Are Looking Up For 'Noah' Upon The Release Of The New Russell Crowe Film.

Aronofsky's movie has been banned in Middle Eastern countries, including The UAE, Qatar and Bahrain, because of a fear of religious provocation as the film breaks the Islamic taboo of depicting a prophet. Speaking at the Noah press call this week, Crowe branded the film's controversy "irrational" whilst co-star Emma Watson, who plays the wife of Noah's son, said she wasn't surprised by the uproar: "To be honest, I expected there to be controversy, I think all Biblical adaptations carry the weight of that because it is something that is so personal to people," she said.

Noah is a normal family man faced with major responsibility when his dark visions lead him to see God's plan to wipe out the corrupt humanity that has plagued his Earth. When he realises that a great flood will be the disaster that will destroy all life, he subsequently sees that a new life will come after it that he must help to re-create. He and his family decide to build a colossal ark to keep them safe from the oncoming catastrophe, and thus use it to save the planet's animals as well. However, the fact that they have been blessed to live has angered their fellow neighbours, who band together in an attempt to seize the ark and save themselves. In an extraordinary turnaround, Noah and his family find themselves facing the bigger threat of their own people, rather than the deadly wrath of the Lord himself.

Years after the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J. K. Rowling continues to reveal new background information about her characters – much to the dismay of a lot of Potterheads. In an interview with Emma Watson in Wonderland magazine (and teased in yesterday's Sunday Times), had she been given a chance to rewrite the relationships between the Trio, Rowling might have done things differently – and Ron might have never ended up with Hermione.

Noah Trailer


When Noah is faced with a dark message from God thanks to his gift of envisioning the future, he realises he is the only person who can save the world. The Lord is angry with the entirety of humanity for their increasingly violent behaviour, and is thus forced to oversee an enormous flood deadly enough to wipe out all people and animals on the planet. Noah and his family are the only humans on the planet who God is willing to save, and so they build an ark big enough to home two of every animal as well as themselves as God attempts to start over again. However, when word gets around that Noah is given the gift of survival while everybody else is doomed to die, naturally a siege ensues and Noah must protect himself and his family against more than one great threat.

This Biblical dystopian tale is based on the Genesis story 'Noah's Ark' which depicts an apocalyptic flood destroying mankind. It has been directed by Darren Aronofsky ('Black Swan', 'The Wrestler', 'Requiem for a Dream ') who co-wrote the screenplay alongside his previous collaborator Ari Handel ('The Fountain'). 'Noah' will be released next year on March 28th 2014.

A Collaboration On The Cards? Emma Watson Spotted Meeting Director Alejandro Amenabar


Emma Watson Alejandro Amenabar

Emma Watson looked like Christmas had come early as she left a lunch date in London with BAFTA nominated director Alejandro Amenabar.

'The Bling Ring' star hasn't been short of movie roles since finishing her stint as witch genius Hermione Granger in the 'Harry Potter' film series, but it looks like she could be in with a chance of working with another seminal director. The actress was spotted by the Daily Mail having lunch with 'The Others' director Alejandro Amenabar in London over the weekend, after which she got up and gave him an enormous hug while grinning widely. 

Of course, it could've been a regular old catch up; the 23-year-old and the 40-year-old could've been friends for ages; but Emma appeared to take to her phone immediately upon leaving, perhaps desperate to relay some good news to a friend of family member.

One Direction Are Officially The Richest Youngsters In Britain


One Direction Daniel Radcliffe Robert Pattinson Keira Knightley Emma Watson Adele Rupert Grint Calvin Harris Cheryl Cole Leona Lewis

One Direction really do have everything after all. In a recently compiled list by Heat Magazine, the boy were revealed as the highest earning entertainment stars under-30's in the UK, with a combined worth of almost £60 million. Individually, the boys would be placed just outside the top ten, however when their wealth is combined they come out on top by a narrow margin.

One Direction
Young, successful and very rich

Last years top spot holder, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, was ousted by the combined earning power of the mega-successful boy band, who have an estimated worth of over £12 million each. The boys were included to the list as a joint entity because most of their earnings have been made as a group, rather than through independent ventures. Narrowly missing out on reclaiming his top spot for a third time, Radcliffe came in second this year with £56.19 million. Something tells us that the Kill Your Darlings actor isn't losing too much sleep over being ousted from the top spot.

Religious Audiences Argue Noah Story Diverges From Bible, Even Though It Never Happened


Russell Crowe Emma Watson Darren Aronofsky

Darren Aronofsky is facing a strange few months. His film, Noah, which stars Russell Crowe and Emma Watson (that’s not the weird bit) was put in front of Christian and Jewish test audiences, only for them to oppose the film because it diverges from the biblical telling of the story.

Russell CroweRussell Crowe Stars as Noah In Aronofsky's Movie

 When you break it down, this is - quite simply - fans of a book complaining the big screen adaptation isn’t true to what the author was trying to say. And it’s not like we haven’t seen that before. Problem is, Christianity and Judaism can’t really be boiled down to a ‘set of fans’ – there’s all this culture, art, food and years of persecution to think about.

Mystery Over Muscle: Benedict Cumberbatch Beats Gosling And Cavill In Sexiest Movie Star Poll


Benedict Cumberbatch Henry Cavill Ryan Gosling Bradley Cooper Tom Hiddleston Emma Watson

Benedict Cumberbatch has been crowned sexiest movie star in an unlikely turn of events whereby he raced ahead of typical heartthrobs Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper in an Empire poll.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star isn't the most likely sex symbol of Hollywood, but the Brit definitely proved to be best after he was picked by 50,000 more fans than any of the other movie screen hotties. Perhaps the people of the world prefer the mysterious, intelligent look these days - or maybe it's just the accent as 'The Avengers' star Tom Hiddleston came in at second place.

We're surprised at the outcome as 'Man Of Steel' hunk Henry Cavill and 'The Place Beyond the Pines' cutie Ryan Gosling looked like dead certs to receive the honour, with the latter's numerous onscreen romances (we all remember 'The Notebook') and the former's portrayal of Superman, one of the most charming characters ever created.

Sherlock Holmes actor Benedict Cumbetbatch and former Harry Potter star Emma Watson have been named the world's sexiest film stars in a new poll by movie magazine Empire.

Cumberbatch managed to beat last year's sexiest man alive, Ryan Gosling, who only came in at number 4, as well as overcoming Jude Law (No. 41), fellow Brit Henry Cavill (No.3) and James Bond himself as Daniel Craig finished No.24.

Watson also beat an impressive list of Hollywood bombshell's which included Mila Kunis (No.7), Cameron Diaz (No.40), Emma Stone (No.6), Olivia Wilde (No.17) and star of upcoming comedy 'Don Jon' Scarlet Johansson, who came in at No.2.

Exactly How Many Harry Potter Spin Offs Are There Going To Be!?


Jk Rowling Emma Watson Rupert Grint Harry Potter

We get the idea: when you’ve got one of the highest grossing movies of all time under your control, it would be foolish not to milk it a bit. But with Warner Bros. trademarking yet another part of the Harry Potter universe, it got us wondering, could every single future film be a Potter spin off or some kind?

So far, Warner Bros. have got their hands on Scamander, the Tales Of Beedle The Bard, Quidditch Through The Ages, the name of quidditch expert Kennilworthy Whisp and team names Wimbourne Wasps, Chudley Cannons and Kenmare Kestrels. (Bleeding Cool)

This suggests the Quidditch spin off is nailed on. This comes in addition to the trademark of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, which, as Warner Bros. announced earlier on this month, is set for a cinematic reimagining from page to screen. Fans of the Potter franchise – and there are plenty of those – will be delighted to see their universe explored further via the medium of cinema.

Dakota Johnson Set For '50 Shades' Lead: Would She Make A Good Ana Steele?


Dakota Johnson E.L. James Sam Taylor-Wood Charlie Hunnam Ian Somerhalder Mila Kunis Shailene Woodley Emma Watson Garrett Hedlund

It's less than a year until the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is due in cinemas yet there doesn't seem to have been any firm casting decisions made. The movie, which will be an adaptation from EL James' best-selling erotic fiction of the same name, will have British director Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) at its helm but nothing more appears to have been set in concrete.

Dakota Johnson
Will Dakota Johnson Really Take The Lead 50 Shades Character?

The role of Christian Grey - the billionaire with a BDSM fetish - has been the most media-covered role so far, with Ian Somerhalder wanting the role, Garrett Hedlund rejecting the role and Taylor-Johnson's own husband, Aaron, rumored for the part. However, it has emerged that we may know who plays student-turned-sex-slave Anastasia Steele first, namely Dakota Johnson.

Which '50 Shades' Role Did Cara Delevingne Audition For?


Cara Delevingne Sam Taylor-Wood Garrett Hedlund Ian Somerhalder Mila Kunis Emma Watson

Will the Fifty Shades of Grey movie ever be cast? It's been months now and the only solid news we've had is that British filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson will be directing. The roles, which will undoubtedly include plenty of nudity, sex and BDSM, have been batted around from one actor to the next with seemingly no one ready to assign their names to Christian Grey or Ana Steele.

EL James
Time Is Running Out To Cast The Adaptation Of EL James' Hugely Successful Books.

Emma Watson and Mila Kunis have publically stated they don't want to be associated with the saucy fiction and so have Armie Hammer, Garrett Hedlund and Taylor-Johnson's husband himself, who have each said they don't see themselves as the whip-brandishing type...well at least not on screen. Ian Somerhalder was reportedly up for the role but was rejected by the series' author herself who said he just wasn't right. Will a cast ever be formed?

Beyonce Chops Off Her Hair & Becomes The Latest Star To Rock The 'Pixie Do' [Photos]


Beyonce Knowles Rihanna Emma Watson Audrey Hepburn Mia Farrow Michelle Williams Anne Hathaway Halle Berry

Beyonce is the latest star to try out the ever-popular 'pixie' look, as the singer has chopped off her once flowing locks in favour of a much easier to handle look. The star uploaded a trio of images showing off her new look to her Instagram page yesterday (8 August) and since then it has been awash with comments from fans and onlookers, with some praising the new look as a revelation, whilst other think it is a major fashion misstep.

Beyonce New Hair
Beyonce showed off her new look on Instagram this week

The 'Crazy In Love' pop diva debuted the look on her Instagram, posting three un-captioned images of herself, but what is it about this new look that means so much? Usually when a star chops off their locks, it is done in a bid to reinvent themselves and cast off a previous image - ala Rihanna and Emma Watson - so is this new look a nod in the direction of her alter ego Sasha Fierce, or is this a new persona emerging from Bey? Maybe it has nothing to do with a statement at all, and after her near miss with an electric fan during a recent Toronto show, perhaps Bey just fancied something different when se last visited her hairdresser.

Garrett Hedlund Offered '50 Shades' Role By EL James, But Rejects It


Garrett Hedlund Ian Somerhalder Armie Hammer Mila Kunis Alexis Bledel Emma Watson Jennifer Lawrence

Actor Garrett Hedlund has rejected the lead role in the adaptation of EL James' raunchy erotic novel, Fifty Shades of Grey due to being unable to commit to a trilogy. The movie, which has yet to cast a single role, is due for release in 2014 with the Nowhere Boy director, Sam Taylor Johnson, at the helm and the author herself as producer.

Garrett Hedlund
"Do I Really Want To Be Filmed Slapping Someone With A Paddle? Nah."

The Tron: Legacy actor had been reportedly hand-picked by the author herself to play the 27 year-old billionaire with a fetish for domination. However, the actor and boyfriend of Kirsten Dunst passed up on the opportunity to become the face of the biggest franchise since the series. A source speaking to US Magazine explained that "Doing a possible trilogy was too big a commitment, and producers wouldn't let him do just one film."

J.K. Rowling's 'Anger' At Law Firm Over Robert Galbraith: The Cuckoo's Calling Leak


Jk Rowling Harry Potter Emma Watson

J.K. Rowling was revealed as the woman behind pseudonym 'Robert Galbraith', the author of The Cuckoo's Calling, by a law firm leak. Despite Russells Solicitors' apology, Rowling is "disappointed" and "angry" that her trust was misplaced.

The Sunday Times had gone in search of answers after suspicions were aroused by a literary analyst, who noted Galbraith's writing had similarities to Rowling's. They received confirmation of the author's true identity, it was revealed yesterday (Thursday 18th July), by a law firm Russells.

Jk Rowling Emma Watson Daniel Radcliffe Rupert Grint Harry Potter

J.K. Rowling, author of the hugely popular Harry Potter series, admitted she had published a detective novel under the pseudonym 'Robert Galbraith'.  Her announcement was made on Sunday 14th July after a newspaper followed up on a hunch that the 'two' authors shared very similar writing styles. The novel, entitled The Cuckoo's Calling, was published in April of this year. Despite receiving critical acclaim the novel sold less than 500 copies.

One publishing house, Orion, has admitted their mistake in turning down the novel. The publishing director, Kate Mills, said Rowling's latest work was "perfectly decent, but quiet". She continued to say that it was "well written" but concerned that "it didn't stand out".  Mills claimed this is a serious problem when attempting to launch "new authors" in crime fiction when it is already "a very crowded market".

Sofia Coppola: There Was A Real-Life Theft During 'The Bling Ring' Premiere [Trailer]


Emma Watson Katie Chang Sofia Coppola Claire Julien Israel Broussard Taissa Farmiga

In The Bling Ring, the true events that saw a gang of celebrity-obsessed teens burgle the homes of stars in an attempt to emulate the glitz and glamour of Hollywood is brought to life on screen with a cast of Emma Watson (Harry Potter, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), along with a young, up-and-coming Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Claire Julien and Taissa Farmiga who play the light-fingered youngsters.

Sofia Coppola
Sofia Coppola's New Movie The Bling Ring Was Inspired By Real Events.

In an interview with the BBC, Coppola admits that it was a challenge to not bring fame to the real thieves through the notoriety brought about by her film's success. Alexis Neiers, the inspiration for Watson's character, Nicki has already gained some degree of fame after she was the subject of a reality TV program and a Bling Ring TV movie. Coppola's first step was to change the names of all the characters involved, speaking of the way she handled bringing the story to life without portraying the burglars as role models: "I had to make that world seductive so you understand what they're drawn to. They are kids trying on these identities - they haven't figured it out. I didn't want to make those kids more famous, I didn't want to celebrate what they did," she says, "We are bringing attention to it, but I don't think they'll be made into cult heroes."

50 Shades Of Grey Movies Gets A Release Date: The Story So Far


Sam Taylor-Wood Mila Kunis Emma Watson Alexis Bledel Ian Somerhalder Stephen Amell Robert Pattinson Krysten Ritter

50 Shades Of Grey just became the biggest movie event of summer 2014 that isn't about super heroes, with Universal announcing their plans to have the film out by August 1 2014. The film will be quite the change from Guardians of the Galaxy, the Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X Men: Days of Future Past, but with a director, script and now a release date all lined up, the much-discussed movie adaption looks like it might finally happen after all. Still no work on who will be in it though, but that's just details.

So we know when the movie should be out, and providing director Sam Taylor-Johnson can keep things on track as soon as we get our Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, then things are looking good. Taylor-Johnson was chosen to take on directing duties earlier this month and her announcement behind the camera has obviously given the producers confidence enough to push forward and commit to a date for when we'll see it on screen. Relatively inexperienced as a director, Taylor-Johnson could prove a competent pick nonetheless having achieved praise for her only work so far; the John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy.

This Is The End Review


Excellent

Comedies don't get much more self-referential than this film, in which a bunch of old friends get together and play themselves facing a biblical-style apocalypse. But they also don't get much funnier. Writing partners Rogen and Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) move into directing with this super-charged bromance that finds surprising resonance amid a constant barrage of vulgarity, in-jokes and end-of-the-world mayhem.

Rogen also stars as himself, happy that his childhood friend Jay is coming to visit him in Los Angeles. Jay prefers to live at home in Canada, far from the plastic L.A. scene, so Seth sets aside the first day with video games and lots of weed. Then they head to James' house for a starry Hollywood party, during which a series of massive earthquakes kills off most of the A-list guests. Seth, Jay and James survive, along with Jonah, Craig and Danny, and as they set up camp in James' mansion, their friendships are strained. Mainly because Danny eats their supply of food, Jay wants to go home, and Jonah is simply too nice to be believed. Until he's possessed by an angry demon.

The blinding array of cameos gives the film's early scenes a terrific kick, as big stars hilariously spoof their public personas before meeting a variety of fiery ends. An especially spiky Watson gets a few extra scenes of her own, while Cera has the most fun as a diva obsessed with sex and drugs. And Tatum gets the most jaw-dropping moment. But it's our six heroes who hold the film together, and their camaraderie adds a surprising warmth, most notably in the central bromance between Rogen and Baruchel.

The Anti-Material Girl - Emma Watson And Her Eight Pairs Of Shoes


Emma Watson

Emma Watson might have starred in The Bling Ring – a cross between a roast and a hedonistic celebration of consumption – but she’s not into that whole scene herself. Not according to her latest interview with New York Magazine’s The Cut, at least. In it, Watson criticizes celebrity culture, as portrayed in the film – and the consumerism that comes with it. She specifically talks about Paris Hilton, of whom the film also tries to make an example.

Emma Watson, Bling Ring Premiere
Despite the fashion sense, Emma Watson isn't your typical It-girl.

"She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on. But I suppose she just bought them to have them. We've all bought things on impulse but that's an entirely different thing ... It's almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania," Watson says and explains how she keeps herself from that mindset: "I've got about eight pairs of shoes and that's it."

Seth Rogen Reveals: 'This Is The End' Does Not Use Original Ending


Seth Rogen James Franco Emma Watson Michael Cera Channing Tatum Paul Rudd Rihanna Evan Goldberg Morgan Freeman Backstreet Boys

Seth Rogen's comedy This Is The End did not use its intended ending. The script was changed in order to accommodate a cameo from 90's pop stars Backstreet Boys leading a sing-along dance to 'Everybody', their 1997 single. 

Director and co-writer Evan Goldberg said the idea had come from an off-the-cuff suggestion from his wife on how to make the ending more interesting. Seth Rogen, who stars in the comedy, was determined to make the idea a reality. 

The Backstreet Boys cameo was not exactly what the writers had planned as the original ending was meant to feature Morgan Freeman, reviving his role as God as in Bruce Almighty. Unfortunately the actor had no interest in participating in the project. Rogen was then adamant the Backstreet Boys should play a part especially, as he said in an interview with The Vulture, he is "the appropriate age" to remember when "Backstreet Boys were kings".

The Backstreet Boys are not the only celebrities to feature in this 'apocalyptic' comedy. In fact the whole film is one cameo appearance after the other. None of the actors are playing characters, merely portraying the public's perception of them.

'The Bling Ring' Might Show A Rotten Culture, But It's Still Worth A Watch


Sofia Coppola Emma Watson Katie Chang Israel Broussard

Much has been written about Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring ever since it made it'ss debut at Cannes. To say that its vapid, shallow and materialistic characters, obsessed with famous-for-being-famous celebrities, are oversimplified would be a valid criticism. But it is also vastly missing the point of the whole movie and what the characters represent.

Check out the trailer below to decide on whether you should see this one.

Emma Watson, Katie Chang Got Ready For 'The Bling Ring' By Breaking In To Friend’s Pad!


Emma Watson Katie Chang Claire Julien

The Bling Ring sees Emma Watson, Katie Chang and Claire Julien play a trio of fame-obsessed, thieves who specialise in targeting celebs. To get ready for this, director Sofia Coppola had her leading ladies perform a fake break in.

"Sofia wanted us to do a bit of bonding so one thing we did is a fake break-in of a house," Chang explained. "We broke into someone's house that Sofia knew. "They knew we were coming, so we broke into their house and we stole a bunch of stuff and it was actually kind of fun," she added at the premiere of the ambitious film. "I totally messed up the whole thing, though, because I was given a list of things that we had to get and I forgot, like, two of them,” she admitted. "So when we got out of the house we were all proud at how fast it was for us to find all the stuff and then we were like, 'C**p, we have to go back in there now and find this other stuff!'".

The film represents a further departure for Watson, who has dedicated herself to more ‘grown up’ roles since her infamous turn as Hermione in the Harry Potter movies, something her co-star in the films, Daniel Radcliff has achieved with his work on stage.

Paris Hilton On 'The Bling Ring': "I Didn't Know They Tried To Steal My Dog!"


Paris Hilton Emma Watson Sofia Coppola

Paris Hilton says she learnt a few things about the infamous Bling Ring robberies on her home from director Sofia Coppola. The reality star heiress makes a cameo appearance in Coppola's new movie, based on the true story of how a group of San Fernando Valley youths robbed the homes of numerous high profile celebrities four years ago.

Though she was questioned by police about the thefts, Hilton says many of the facts about the robberies only came to light after she met with Coppola. "Sofia told me so many things I didn't know," Hilton, 32, told the Los Angeles Times at the Hollywood premiere on Tuesday evening. "I didn't know they tried to take my dog. I didn't know they were selling my things on Venice Boardwalk."

Hilton has been a prominent member of the promotional team for the movie and flew to the South of France to attend the Cannes Film Festival premiere last month, telling reporters the movie almost brought her to tears.

If the critics believe that Emma Watson hasn't got it entirely right in the film The Bling Ring, then there was no denying that she at least managed to hit the highlights at the film's American premiere last night (June 4, 2013).

The British former 'Harry Potter' star was looking divine as she wore a black and grey number with a high collar and high-waisted belt.

Watson added to the look with black and silver Giuseppe Zanotti heels as well as a black clutch bag and ear cuffs. Swanky.

Emma Watson Plans On Returning To Brown University In Fall 2013


Emma Watson

Emma Watson has revealed that she is going back to college later this year, with the film star looking to complete her studies at Brown University this fall having put her education on hold to further pursue her acting career. The actress' return to the Ivy League college doesn't completely spell the end of her acting responsibilities though, with the Perks of Being A Wallflower actress already lined up for a number of roles in the near-future.

The star was speaking to Rookiemag.com when she announced her plans to return to education - having left the college following her second year in 2011 - so that she can finish her degree before going back to acting full-time. At the time of her departure from Brown, it was believed that the star left because of bullying from the other students, something that she vehemently denied whenever quizzed about it. She is now looking forward to finishing her degree and joining fellow A-List Ivy League college-graduates such as Natalie Portman and James Franco.

The actress seemed thoroughly excited about her return to Brown, telling the interviewer, "I really like the fact that [Brown] has a very open curriculum, that there aren't any requirements. Really, I've kind of been in charge of my own education since I started out on 'Potter' when I was 9 or 10, and I liked that I could design my own major if I wanted to, and I could take independent studies if I wanted to on subjects that weren't necessarily in the curriculum. I did an independent study on the psychology and philosophy of how and why we fall in love, which was awesome."

Eva Longoria suffered a wardrobe malfunction at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 18, 2013) though managed to have a pretty good laugh about the whole thing. The former Desperate Housewives actress stepped onto the red-carpet for the premiere of Jimmy P. Psychotherapy of a Plains Indians and accidentally flashed too much skin for waiting fans and photographers.

The 38-year-old had tugged up the bottom of her sea foam green Atelier Versace gown in order to avoid tripping while climbing the stairs of the theater. Unfortunately for Longoria, she was sans underwear and exposed her bottom half. The embarrassed actress quickly noticed mistake and pulled herself together to pose for photographs. She laughed off the incident the following night, "Here's my dress for tonight!" she wrote, alongside a photo of herself in a black gown. "No wardrobe malfunctions tonight!"

'The Bling Ring' Soundtrack Might Actually Be Better Than The Film


Sofia Coppola Emma Watson Frank Ocean Kanye West Sleigh Bells

Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film The Bling Ring is one of the summers most exciting prospects in cinema, and with it's release date fast approaching movie execs at Paramount have released the playlist for the movie's official soundtrack. Oh yeah, and did we mention that the soundtrack is ridiculously good?

The line-up features a veritable who's who of contemporary modern music, with 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Sleigh Bells, Phoenix, Frank Ocean, Azealia Bank, M.I.A. and Kanye West, and if that wasn't good enough then there's even some krautrock brought into the mix, including Klaus Schulze and Can. The only problem with this major line-up is now we're not sure what we're looking forward to the most, the movie itself or the soundtrack (who are we kidding, its obviously THAT scene with Emma Watson in the nightclub that everyone is looking forward to the most).

Watch the Bling Ring Trailer!

On top of the glittering line-up on the soundtrack, Coppola has also hooked up with Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never) to score the film; so expect an exciting electronic undercurrent to accompany the a-list soundtrack (which also features a track from Lopatin). In case you're wondering how all these great act will fit into a movie about a group of young criminal stealing from the rich and famous of Los Angeles the you need only to check out the song names, all of which are very fitting for the theme of the movie.

This Is The End Trailer


When actor James Franco threw a party for his fellow movie stars including the star-studded cast of 'Knocked Up' and several stars of Seth Rogen's comedies including Seth himself, Jay Baruchel, Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, no-one expected it to be anything more than your average drink fuelled Hollywood superparty. However, things take a turn for the worst when they experience a major earthquake; the ground opens up to the hottest depths of the Earth's core swallowing up Rihanna and Jason Segal as mysterious beasts start swarming around outside. What's a comedy cast to do with limited food and no real skills of the like they portray in the movies - especially when golden girl Emma Watson bursts in on them wielding an axe demanding all their resources. This is Hollywood versus the apocalypse, but who would really win?

The Slipper Fits! Lily James Snags Role As Disney's Cinderella: Who Is She?


Lily James Kenneth Branagh Emma Watson

The Downton Abbey actress Lily James has landed the role of Cinderella in Disney's live-action retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy-tale, reports Variety. Kenneth Branagh will direct the project, based on a script by Chris Weitz. Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett co-stars as the evil stepmother.

James is a name that's hardly been mentioned throughout the casting process, with Disney originally offering the role to Harry Potter star Emma Watson. On that occasion - Variety's Marc Graser (who broke news of Lily James' casting) - reported how negotiations had broken down, with Watson instead choosing to focus on Guillermo del Toro's planned Beauty and the Beast movie, over at Warner Bros. The film is still in development at the studio, though there's no production start date or release date yet.

Lily James began her career in several notable theatre roles, including alongside Dominic West in a production of Othello at the Crucible in Sheffield.

Can 'The Bling Ring' Compete For Movie Gold During Awards Season?


Sofia Coppola Francis Ford Coppola Emma Watson Paris Hilton Lindsay Lohan Rachel Bilson

The alarm bells started ringing when Sofia Coppola, the director of Lost in Translation and Somewhere, announced she would be adapting the story of a group of internet savvy Los Angeles burglars for the big-screen. Just as David Fincher's Facebook tale The Social Network vied for the top awards at the Oscars and Golden Globes, the idea of Coppola's The Bling Ring seemed likely to chime with the social media generation, and a new wave of younger Academy voters. 

Unsurprisingly, the Cannes Film Festival welcomed Coppola and her new movie with open arms for this year's event, where it will make its worldwide premiere. That said, should The Bling Ring pull in nominations for this year's awards season, it would represent a very different type of awards' success story. Firstly, its lead actress Emma Watson is hardly an awards' magnet, having really only starred in the Harry Potter franchise and a couple of lightweight dramas. Secondly, it features appearances from the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan in its examination of America's obsession with celebrity culture and the A-list mecca that is Los Angeles. Though we could imagine it scoring nods for the Globes, it would be a massive feat should The Bling Ring compete at the Oscars. However, it does have one thing in its favour: the director.
