Steven Gerrard - Who'd have thought that fine art could be created out of something as butch as a hammer and a bunch of nails? But that's exactly what former architect David Foster has achieved with his unique nail portraits. David's art covers a range of subjects such as celebrities, animals, flowers and, get this, even a hammer and nail! The level of precision and realism in his art is a result of years of practicing and perfecting his technique. Thrilled with the simplicity of making a picture from just dots Foster says, "I have always been fascinated with how little information the brain needs to interpret a picture." On an average, his smaller drawings number about 5,000 nails, while larger ones can have as many as 30,000. David's prize winning piece made from 16,000 nails is called Lashes and Nails. David evidently loves what he does, going by what he tells us on his website. "The whole process thrills me, taking just a hammer and a box of nails and arranging them into an artwork. It is very tactile art and the viewer will find it hard not to touch the work," he writes. He also insists that the best way to view his work is up close, since photographs don't do much justice to it. - Warrington, Cheshire, United Kingdom - Friday 22nd November 2013
Numerous stars from the football and entertainment world contributed towards Paul Gascogine's rehabilitation costs.
Paul Gascoigne has revealed that Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard paid for his recent spell in rehabilitation. The football legend makes a tearful appearance on Alan Carr's Chatty Man tonight (April 12, 2013), in which he reveals the extent of his drinking binges. "It's been three months since I had a drink. I do miss a pint...I'll never say never. I might drink again in the future," he told Alan.
Gascoigne revealed that Manchester United striker Rooney, 27, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, 32, Arsenal star Jack Wilshire, 21, Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker, 52, DJ Chris Evans, 47, and Alan Sugar all helped him with the cost of rehab - a £7,500 a week facility in Arizona.
Following his last drinking binge, Gascoigne said he "woke up with two empty litres of gin, six bottles of wine and about eight cans," explaining, "I don't plan to, I've got to keep my eye on the ball and do the right things. But I've got an addictive personality.For me it's just that I fancy a pint. I think I'll be alright for one and I get too excited. It's all right getting there but once I'm drunk I'm a nightmare."

Remember yesterday when we brought you news of Steven Gerrard's possible casting in a new James Bond movie? Well, it looks as though Wayne Rooney is also joining the race to replace Daniel Craig, ahead of tonight's Skyfall premiere in London (October 23, 2012).
A new alternate trailer for Skyfall - commissioned by the Huffington Post - has emerged online, featuring the Manchester United star as Bond himself. In the ridiculously poorly-produced clip, Rooney infiltrates a hair transplant laboratory in an attempt to bring down the villains. After Judi Dench's M demands to know where the hell he has been, Rooney replies, "Spain, Brazil... erm, Italy." His team-mates Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra also pop up, displaying slightly better acting skills than Wayne himself, though the whole thing is disastrous. Funny, almost, but disastrous. At the end, the England star is heard to say, "They say he is a legend," before a title reads, "Wayne Rooney is Awful," in the recognisable 'Skyfall' typeface.
The video comes just 24 hours after current Bond Daniel Craig tipped his favourite footballer as a possible replacement once he hangs up his tuxedo. Speaking to the official Liverpool FC website, the actor mused, "Who would I rather be, captain of Liverpool or Bond? Well I don't think I could keep up any more so Bond will do but Steven Gerrard would make a good Bond. He is a good leader so you know what, seriously, who knows?"

Daniel Craig probably has a couple more James Bond movies left in him (he's likely to sign on for plenty more after the inevitably box office success of Skyfall) though he's been speaking about who may win the eventual race to be his successor.
So who does the blue-eyed British star tip for the role? Bookies favourite Sam Worthington? Londoner Tom Hardy? Michael Fassbender? Well, not exactly. Craig thinks Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard would be the perfect replacement. Speaking to the official Liverpool FC website, the actor said, "Who would I rather be, captain of Liverpool or Bond? Well I don't think I could keep up any more so Bond will do but Steven Gerrard would make a good Bond. He is a good leader so you know what, seriously, who knows?" We're giving this idea the double thumbs up, if only to have a Liverpudlian James Bond. Bookmakers are yet to respond to Craig's remarks in their 'Next Bond' markets, though they're already offering a whole host of bizarre names, including Simon Cowell at 100/1. Tom Cruise at 50/1 is equally hilarious.
So there you have it. Steven Gerrard as the next Bond. Perhaps sir Paul McCartney could play 'Q' and Cilia Black as Moneypenny?
