Javier Bardem Was On Set For Ben Stiller's Zoolander 2 Boob Grab


Ben Stiller Penelope Cruz Javier Bardem

Stiller thought it would be a hoot to write a scene in the new Zoolander sequel, in which he holds on to Cruz's character Valentina from behind "for buoyancy" as she suggests they swim to Rome, before diving into the sea.

The funnyman was sure the boob grab would raise a few titters among film fans, but he wasn't laughing when his co-star's husband showed up on set on the day of the shoot.

Asked who wrote the scene during an appearance on America's The Daily Show, Ben said, "It wasn't Javier Bardem, I'll tell you that, but he did come to the set that day."

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Pranked Doppelganger Javier Bardem


Javier Bardem Jeffrey Dean Morgan

The Watchmen star has become known as Bardem's Hollywood doppelganger over the years as he is often mistaken for the Oscar winner, and Morgan has revealed he once got the No Country For Old Men star into trouble.

Morgan flipped his middle finger to snappers at a red carpet event after they called him 'Javier', and Bardem was blamed for the bad behaviour.

"I get (mistaken for) Javier Bardem a lot," Morgan admits during an appearance on U.S. chat show The Talk. "When he won his Oscar, I had just gotten on Grey's Anatomy about the same time. I went to a party here in New York, and as I was walking the red carpet, the paparazzi just started screaming, 'Javier, Javier!'. And I flipped them off... I was trying to be funny - I don't know if it was construed as funny. But the next day in the New York Daily News or whatever, there was a picture of me flipping the camera off and it said, 'Javier is an a**hole!'"

In video footage captured by fans, Javier hit the stage with a blue feather boa and matching sparkly fedora and pretended to seduce Bono during a performance of Mysterious Ways. At the end of the track, the singer praised the "beautiful dancer" as Penelope, wearing a long blonde wig and Playboy bunny ears, joined the party and appeared to shoo her husband away. Bono then recruited the Oscar winner to film the rockers' next track, Desire, on a cell phone.

The musicians had alerted their Twitter followers to the presence of their famous fans before the gig, when they shared a picture of the Hollywood couple backstage. They captioned the image, "Mysterious guests tonight in Barcelona..."

Great news for fans of Pirates Of The Caribbean as Disney has confirmed that Orlando Bloom will be returning to the cast for the fifth instalment. The announcement was revealed at Disney’s D23 expo on Saturday (August 15th) after the star himself had previously expressed uncertainty as to whether he would get the nod.

Bloom, of course, was missing from the fourth movie On Stranger Tides back in 2011, having played Will Turner, one of the franchise’s central characters, in the first three movies dating back to 2003.

The Gunman Review


Weak

While Sean Penn lends this thriller some political subtext, the fact remains that it's actually just another vacuous revenge fantasy from Taken director Pierre Morel. Clearly for Morel, the violence is the point, and any depth of meaning is irrelevant, which leaves the film superficially entertaining but a waste of the considerable talent on-screen.

Penn plays Jim, a charity worker in the wartorn 2006 Democratic Republic of Congo. His hot doctor girlfriend Annie (Jasmine Trinca) has no idea that Jim is secretly a black-ops sniper working with fellow mercenary commandos Cox, Felix and DuPont (Rylance, Bardem and Elba). Then their latest mission requires Jim to disappear. Eight years later in an all-new life, Jim discovers that someone is trying to kill him, so he travels to London to find Cox. When Jim's pursuers turn up, Cox sends him to talk to Felix, who now lives in Barcelona with Annie as his wife. With the mysterious killers still on his trail, Jim heads to Gibraltar to tie up the loose ends with DuPont, and finally discovers the truth about what's going on and who's behind it.

Yes, everything is leading to a brutal confrontation inventively set in a bull-fighting ring. But not much else here is either original or convincing. The whole African politics premise is little more than a plot device, while hopping from Congo to Britain to Spain does little more than change the background scenery. Otherwise, the script is so simplistic that it barely holds water, and each ambush, fight and chase sequence feels like something we've seen before. Especially since everything is both over-choreographed and gratuitously grisly. Still, Morel is great at creating a sense of tension that builds ominously from start to finish, adding some gritty urgency through corrupt politicians and self-serving businessmen. Unfortunately, the film continually sidelines these intriguing ideas for more mindlessly violent mayhem.
