    With the announcement last month of a new Star Wars trilogy beginning with Episode VII in 2015, the minds of fans started racing faster than the Millennium Falcon making the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs. Next to nothing is known about the new movies, but that hasn’t stopped everyone who once owned a Boba Fett lunchbox from wildly speculating about what we could see on our next big-screen journey to that Galaxy Far, Far Away. The most popular questions: Will Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford return? If so, how large will their roles be? And will this new movie give Han Solo the heroic death Ford hoped for but was denied in Return of the Jedi? Star Wars fans, it’s time we take a collective breath. Decades worth of rumors that have swirled around George Lucas’ space opera should tell us that idle speculation usually gets you nowhere. A friend of mine was absolutely convinced after having seen The Empire Strikes Back as a kid that Boba Fett is in fact Luke Skywalker’s father, not Darth Vader. How else could Fett’s shot at Luke on Cloud City have missed its mark at such close range unless Fett deliberately missed. And why did he deliberately miss? Because Luke’s really his son!

    Many of these theories say more about us than they do about the films. So before you totally OD on Episode VII speculation, take a look at some of the craziest rumors that have been attached to the Star Wars franchise over the past few decades, and decide for yourself how profitable such theorizing really is.

    1. Darth Vader, the Robot—In the immediate aftermath of Star Wars’ 1977 release, chatter focused on what Darth Vader is, as much as who he is. Some fans thought that Vader was actually a robot, citing how he’s completely concealed in armor and how his heavy-footed gait has a metallic clank. Of course, why they thought that a robot would need to breathe is a bit of a headscratcher. And they obviously thought Obi-Wan Kenobi was a liar when he said that Darth Vader was a pupil of his, unless they really think he’d train, rather than just program, a droid. Scratch that, Obi-Wan Kenobi is a liar.

    2. Mick Jagger Would Compose The Empire Strikes Back’s Score—This doozy came from an October 1979 issue of Starlog, a now semi-legendary sci-fi zine that’s long since bitten the dust. (And unfortunately is not archived online.) Apparently, a rumor started that John Williams, author of Star Wars’ soaring fanfare of a score, would be replaced with the Rolling Stones lead singer. “Play With Fire” could have made for a killer flashback, though, during which we see Darth Vader’s lava-induced injuries.

    3. Han Solo Was Marked for Death—Everyone seemed to think that the spice smuggler was going to bite it, possibly in The Empire Strikes Back. A bunch of different theories spelled out exactly how he would die, though the craziest has to be one in which Han would fight a lightsaber duel—despite not being known to wield a lightsaber—against Darth Vader! Somehow in the course of the duel their respective life-force energies would fuse and they’d become one being, meaning that Luke Skywalker, in trying to defeat Vader, would also have to kill his best friend!

    Even Darth Vader performer David Prowse suggested to Starlog in June 1979 that Han would die in a battle with the then-new villain Boba Fett. The surprisingly loose-lipped former wrestler also said that there would be twelve Star Wars movies, and that he would appear as Vader in the prequel installments Episodes II and III. The latter point didn’t happen, obviously, but Prowse wasn’t all wrong. This is something that could only have been kept quiet in the pre-Internet Era, but Prowse actually spoiled the secret of Luke Skywalker’s paternity to a fanzine in April 1978, the quotes from which were published later that summer in The San Francisco Examiner. Yes, he said that Darth Vader is Luke’s father a full two years before The Empire Strikes Back was released, and I quote: “In the film, Alec Guinness goes to great lengths to explain to poor Luke how his father had been killed by Darth Vader. Luke’s father was killed by Darth Vader, right? And how Darth Vader turned to evil, etc., etc. His father was good and all this sort of thing. In the next film, there is going to be a confrontation between Luke and Darth Vader and they then discover that Darth Vader never killed his father, that Darth Vader IS his father. So son can’t kill father, and father can’t kill son—so Darth Vader lives until the next sequel.”

    4. Empire or Jedi Would Feature Time Travel—This seems like the musings of some overzealous Star Trek fans for what they’d like to see in Star Wars, but a theory reported by Starlog’s February 1980 issue suggested that the Millennium Falcon would pass through a time warp, sending Luke, Han, and Chewbacca into the era of the Clone Wars. During that time they’d up fighting alongside Luke’s father and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Just think for a moment how awesome a Han Solo/General Grievous showdown would be. Or not.

    5. Leonardo DiCaprio as Anakin Skywalker—In 1999, the world’s most beloved movie franchise was about to get relaunched with the prequels. So why shouldn’t Lucasfilm tap the world’s biggest heartthrob, Leonardo DiCaprio, coming right off Titanic mania, as the adolescent Anakin Skywalker for Episode II? Fans everywhere thought he was the most likely choice, but the rumor that George Lucas was considering him for the role wasn't substantiated at the time beyond reports that the actor had visited Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, CA for a private screening of The Phantom Menace. However, this rumor turned out to be true. In 2010, while promoting Inception, DiCaprio finally went on the record to Shortlist about how he was approached for the role. "I did have a meeting with George Lucas about [Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequels] as well, yes." he said. “Just didn't feel ready to take that dive. At that point." Other actors reportedly considered at the time were James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson, Eric Christian Olsen, Erik von Detten, Ryan Phillippe, and Chris Klein. What could have been!

    6. The Prequels Would Show a More Primitive Star Wars Galaxy—Leading up to the release of The Phantom Menace in 1999, many fans thought that the prequels would show a less technologically sophisticated Galaxy Far, Far Away. After all, Episode I was set 33 years before the events of the original Star Wars. So the technology on display should appear regressive, right? Wrong! The underlying technological premise of Star Wars is that there isn’t much further a civilization can evolve once faster-than-light space travel has been invented. Therefore most of the Star Wars galaxy has had the level of tech you see in the original trilogy for thousands of years. That hasn’t stopped fans from griping about it, though.

    7. The Obi-Wan/Anakin/Padmé Love Triangle—Also known as “The Theory in Which Obi-Wan is an Even Bigger Liar than Anyone Thought and is Actually Luke’s Father.” For years fans had speculated that the aged Jedi Master was more than just a father figure to Luke. But when the prequels were ramping up in earnest, it seemed like the new films might lend credence to the theory. For one, Natalie Portman’s Padmé Amidala was a mature adolescent in The Phantom Menace, while Jake Lloyd’s Anakin Skywalker was just a snotty ten-year-old who says stuff like “Are you an angel?” and “I’m a person!” Why wouldn’t Naboo’s Queen prefer Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan instead? Actually, this is a theory that is slightly acknowledged in Revenge of the Sith, when Hayden Christensen’s Anakin, brimming with accusatory rage, does seem to suggest when he says to his wife “You’re with him!” that Padmé may be having an affair with his old Master. But sorry, fans. Until Maury Povich says otherwise, Anakin is definitely the father.

    So you see that rumormongering is usually not that fruitful an activity. Not that we’re discouraging your theories about the new trilogy! Just understand that they are likely to be proven totally wrong, and not just from a certain point of view.

    Actor Jason Patric [The Lost Boys, Sleepers, My Sister's Keeper] is embroiled in a bizarre custody war, in which he donated sperm so his ex-girlfriend could have a baby, but according to the deal she could never tell anyone or ask for financial support.

    Patric was with on-again-off-again girlfriend Danielle Schreiber for more than a decade. They broke up in early 2009, and he allegedly told her that he didn't have any money to give her but he would give her the next best thing -- his sperm, so she could have a baby.

    We're told Jason made it clear ... he would only provide his sperm if she didn't breathe a word to anyone and never asked him for child support. She agreed.

    Baby Gus was born in December, 2009. In 2011, Jason and Danielle got back together but it didn't last long. They broke up in May, 2012.

    Apparently, while they were together, Jason, who never paid Danielle child support, took a liking to Gus, because he filed legal docs in family court asking a judge to award him 50/50 custody.

    But there's a little known law which says if an unmarried man artificially inseminates an unmarried woman with the help of a physician, he's NOT legally the dad and has no custody rights.

    The judge has given Danielle temporary sole legal and physical custody of the boy. Jason has visitation rights. We're told Danielle is fine VOLUNTARILY giving Jason the right to spend time with the boy, but objects to a judge ordering visitation -- she doesn't believe Jason has or should have any LEGAL rights to custody or visitation.

    The case will be heading back in court. Patric has also dated actresses Julia Roberts and Jennifer Jason Lee as well as model Christina Turlington.

    Jesse James and Kelsey Grammer may give Hollywood husbands a bad name, but there are some stars who were actually paying attention while reciting their wedding vows.

    As a tribute to these caring, supportive (and handsome) men, we've compiled a list of the best husbands in Hollywood. These stars take their relationships seriously and have shown that they work to love, honor and cherish their spouses, both in and out of the spotlight.

    Check out our picks, and tell us: who do you think is the best celebrity husband?

    Matt Damon

    Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso, a former bartender, married in 2005 and have four daughters together (one is Barroso's from a previous marriage). Damon said that he and Barroso never go more than a week without seeing each other, and called her "my soulmate."

    Denzel Washington

    One of Hollywood's longest-lasting relationships is between Denzel and Pauletta Washington, who have been married for 39 years. Denzel clearly takes his marriage seriously -- he recently said that marriage "is a marathon, not a sprint."

    George Takei

    "Star Trek" star George Takei married Brad Altman, his partner of 21 years, when same-sex marriage was briefly legalized in California in 2008. The wedding included nods to Japanese, Buddhist, Native American and Scottish culture. In his vows, Takei told Altman, "I vow to care for you as you've cared for me…and to love you as my husband and the only man in my life."

    Ewan McGregor

    "Moulin Rouge" star Ewan McGregor married French production designer Eve Mavrakis in 1995. The couple has four daughters, two of whom they adopted. Of his 17-year marriage, McGregor said, "I found my partner, my life partner, and I really am in love with my wife and we have a lovely time and we share a long history together and children together and that's it. It's not because I do a certain gesture that she stays with me or anything. I think it's just because we love each other."

    Magic Johnson

    Magic and Cookie Johnson married in 1991, two months before Magic announced that he had contracted HIV. The two have remained committed despite their challenges, and Magic has stayed busy with his Magic Johnson Foundation and upcoming television network


    Sting and his wife Trudie Styler have been married for more than 18 years and have four children together. The secret to their lasting relationship? A healthy sex life! "We love each other -- that's a given -- but Trudie lights up my world when she comes into a room. I don't take her for granted," Sting said in 2011. "There's a playfulness we have; I like the theatre of sex. I like to look good. I like her to dress up. I like to dress her up."

    James McAvoy

    James McAvoy married actress Anne-Marie Duff in 2006, and the two became parents to a baby boy last year. Film director Michael Hoffman said of McAvoy and Duff, ''They really have an immense amount of fun together -- having seen them in Germany while we were making ["The Last Station"], it's a very creative, very warm, very open, mature, fantastic relationship.''

    Tom Hanks

    Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have been married for 24 years and they're still going strong -- check them out on the "kiss cam" at a hockey game in March! "My secret to a happy marriage is just being married to the right woman," Hanks told People. "I got lucky with the wonderful Rita Wilson. I'm the luckiest man alive."

    Michael Caine

    Michael and Shakira Caine have been married for almost 40 years. Michael first saw Shakira in a Maxwell House Coffee ad and thought she was "the most beautiful girl I'd ever seen."

    "Teen Wolf" fans, we've got more Season 3 news for you!

    Earlier today, we reported four great pieces of casting news -- including identical twin hotties and two mysterious new women. Now, we've got one more big of scoop! Zap2it has learned exclusively that Gideon Emery, who can currently be seen as Booth on ABC's "Last Resort," has been cast in a formidable new role.

    Emery will play Deucalion, the leader of the pack of Alpha werewolves that closed in on Beacon Hills in the Season 2 finale. Described as having "an eloquent, cutting intelligence," the new werewolf will set a plan in motion to turn Derek and Scott against each other, ripping the Beacon Hills supernatural community apart at the seams.

    According to executive producer Jeff Davis, he's given his pack a very specific set of instructions. In fact, he's sending identical twins Ethan and Aidan into Beacon Hills High, on a mission to seduce and trap two targets, who happen to be Scott's friends.

    Emery, who was raised in the UK and South Africa, is a prolific voice actor, having worked on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and given voice to countless video game characters.

    Survivor Philippines: Episode 11 - Hell Hath Frozen Over

    Reward was the Survivor auction in which Abi bought herself an advantage at the next immunity challenge.

    At the individual immunity challenge, Abi's auction bid paid off as she won individual immunity!

    Penner was voted out 4-3 over Denise.

    Abi was SO clever with what she did with the note she bought at the reward challenge. I give her major kudos for that. I still don't like her though.

    Generally, I don’t make a habit of making news posts about things that happened on the Internet more than a year ago. Unless, of course, it managed to slip everyone’s attention and is just blowing up now. I also don’t make a habit of writing news posts about random people on the internet being jerks. Unless, of course, they’re not random people at all, but people with significant power over either legal matters or the media we consume.

    The case of ”The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With,” or rather, the content of the commentary on the post of that name by writer/director James Gunn last year. See, in between last February and now, Gunn was tapped as the director for the first new set of characters to be introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 2, The Guardians of the Galaxy.

    The post is dated February 11th, 2011, and apparently sat around for nearly two years before it was noticed recently. It was still live late last night when I noticed pretty much every comics-related blog I follow on Tumblr talking in various shades of disgust about its content, but it has since been taken down. Naturally, it’s still available by Google Cache.

    Lets be clear: there’s nothing wrong about running a poll for the most sex-able superhero on your site, especially one where you embrace the fact that Batman and Gambit come in within the top five. There isn’t anything wrong, in that context, of choosing art that sexualizes the characters in it. There isn’t even anything wrong with talking explicitly about sex in your commentary on the poll results. What’s wrong is the sheer amount of slut-shaming (on only the female characters) and anti-gay language that Gunn directs towards the majority of the male characters. These are not opinions befitting somebody who’s been given the task of bringing a major part of the Marvel Universe to the big screen (a set of characters, I might add, that includes a lesbian superhero couple, not that they’ll be appearing in Guardians).

    The screenshot at the top of this post is the entirety of what he has to say about Batwoman, which is both a reference to the idea that lesbians just need a good (read: streotypically masculine) man to have sex with them and they’ll be “cured” of their homosexuality, a delusion at the heart of an innumerable number of rapes; and a dig at Nightwing, one of the few male characters in comics who has actually gotten away with being drawn for the female gaze. Apparently, having been depicted as a female sex fantasy occasionally (and still with nowhere near the frequency that any given female character is drawn for the male gaze) instead of a male power fantasy literally makes him a woman.

    (There’s some strong language and homophobic slurs in the rest of this post.)

    Gambit is another character who gets drawn or written for the female gaze, and he comes in at number five even on a list not weighted for the gender or orientation of its polling base.  Says Gunn: “My girlfriend voted for this Cajun fruit.” He goes on to say that the idea of having sex with Gambit himself makes him sick to his stomach. Because, again, imagining a man as attractive to a woman necessarily requires you to imagine him as gay.

    But let’s not end with the anti-gay sentiment! Sometimes, women are qualitatively less attractive because they have sex with people! “I sometimes think that the Black Canary is the hottest chick in the DC Universe until I remember that she, uh, fucks Green Arrow.” On Stephanie Brown, a teen mother who made the painful decision to give her baby up for adoption, “Being a teen mom and all, you know she’s easy. Go for it.” On the previous Batgirl, Cassandra Cain “She has the ultimate daddy issues.  Which means she’s just my type.” Many of Gunn’s other comments ride the line between what I would simply consider distasteful and what I can definitively call misogynistic, like when he says he’d have sex with Spider-Woman but he wouldn’t want to look at her face while doing it, so he’d make sure to ejaculate onto it, or that Emma Frost is great for guys who like “a rude bitch.”

    This discovery of Gunn’s apparently joyful and public feelings about women and sexuality are, to say the least, deeply disappointing. The fact that it was out, on the internet, for more than a year before his attachment to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and not even taken down or otherwise covered up until now, is even more so. Gunn was also publicly endorsed by Joss Whedon. Plenty of the people I follow are saying they will personally boycott the movie or calling for Marvel Studios to remove him from the project. Boycotting a major release in the MCU is not something I personally have the professional ability to do (providing information on whether a movie treats its female characters with respect is something I consider to be a vital part of this site), or something I feel I can, personally, advocate for or against to other people. The extent to which one can separate the artist from their work is a very personal decision that varies from person to person. Additionally, Gunn is by no means the only person who will have made Guardians when the film rolls into theaters in 2014 or who stands to lose their job prospects or salary should it fail.

    As for calling for Marvel to remove him… I could honestly see that happening if it gets enough buzz. The release date is still two years off, and we live in a world where Brett Ratner is pressured into resigning from producing the Oscars for a gay slur, surely fans can hold Marvel accountable for the behavior of the directors they choose. Whether their opinions will be numerous to be listened to is something I can’t be certain of.

    Update: Here’s a good post by Heidi MacDonald from The Beat that says some things I wish I’d said about satire and intentions. If you’ve gotten this far, I highly recommend giving it a read.

    (via many places, but the link to the cached version of the page was found at Lady Geek Girl, and the original Tumblr post that brought it to my awareness was from BuckyCaps.)

    tl;dr James Gunn is a sexist, misogynistic, and homophobic asshole

    The backlash hasn’t let up since Ebony’s Power & Respect issue hit national newsstands last week. In the comments section of Young, Back & Fabulous — a trove of harsh criticism has appeared. “Ebony has lost any credibility that it once had,” one commenter opined, while another simply asked, “Ebony couldn’t get ANYONE else on the cover???” One comment even called the 45-year-old new grandmother a “Donkey With Diamonds.”

    That’s just a sampling of reactions. Leakes herself bluntly defended the magazine’s decision to put her.

    “I absolutely deserve to be on the cover,” she tells The Daily Beast. “This cover is about money, power, and respect. And it’s about a come-up story and I’m the one that had that story this year… Not only did I come out as a reality star that was very boisterous and vivacious. I flipped that into money and respect. And a lot of people can’t do that.

    “But listen to me, definitely all of the negative feedback definitely came from my own; African Americans were the ones that were the most negative,” she continues, adding, “And it’s so funny to me because I would call over at Ebony and she would say ‘Girl please, glass houses.

    According to her, it’s par for the course. “It’s true and I know you’ve heard it a million times, [African Americans] just don’t support one another,” she says. “But it’s OK for you to go pick up a magazine cover with Kim Kardashian. But her story ain’t no different than mine. You know what I mean? I might’ve worked at the strip club, but she made a sex tape.”

    Never one to mince her words, Leakes is as bawdy as they get on reality television. But like a Kardashian, she’s laser-focused on branding beyond the genre. “There are a lot of girls on these reality shows who are outspoken, they are on there for the purpose of fame,” she says.

    “Reality TV is not going to be around always,” Leakes says. “Hell, I ain’t going to be on there always. I need to do everything that I can possibly do because I’m not interested in always being a reality star. I mean, who wants to do that all the time? It will wear you out, child.”

    Tardy With The Payment! Kim Owes Over $1 Million For Wedding!

    Not only did Kim Zolciak skip out on paying her wedding planner for throwing her nuptials last year, but has exclusively learned she owes the company more than $1,000,000.

    Kim and her hubby Kroy Biermann enlisted the help of party planner to the stars, Colin Cowie, for their special day last August and according to one of Kim's close family members she assumed Bravo would pick up the tab!

    "Kim said that she was having to pay her wedding planner over $1,000,000 for her big ceremony and Bravo wasn't picking up the tab," the family member exclusively revealed to

    "They shortly after had a falling out."

    As first confirmed through the valet company working Kim's wedding, she still has a large outstanding bill and that Colin's company has not yet received a penny from the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.

    "Colin Cowie Lifestyle (CCL/CCE) contracted with AAA Parking to provide valet parking services on November 11, 2011 at Ms. Zolciak’s residence in Roswell, Georgia. The event and valet parking services were extended by an additional hour at the request of Colin Cowie representatives resulting in an additional charge," a representative of AAA Parking said.

    "The total invoice of $2,550 remains unpaid. CCL/CCE has advised us that they have not been paid for any services they provided for the Zolciak wedding."

    Colin's team has remained hush-hush on the matter only telling, "We do not comment on our business relationships with our clients," and Kim has denied owing any money for the wedding.

    Heather Dishes on Whether She’s Returning for Season 8!

    Real Housewives of Orange County’s Heather Dubrow hasn’t confirmed that she’ll definitely return for Season 8, but it’s certainly seeming likely.

    “Bravo hasn’t even announced a formal pick-up for next season, but I would say that if they move forward, I think we’ve had enough of a positive experience that I would probably be willing to do it again,” Heather tells ShockYa.

    Heather — who will also appear this season on Hot in Cleveland — admits that there are aspects about being on the show that aren’t pleasant. “I think, you know, some comments I made about Alexis [Bellino] weren’t very kind,” Heather says. “Like, hearing what people said about me — that wasn’t nice. That sort of stuff was hard to swallow.”

    She also feels that Real Housewives viewers don’t get to see who she really is. “I would say that — although my friends all know this about me — is that I’m very silly and funny,” she says. “On the show, I think I come off very reserved and buttoned-up and controlling.”

    Kristen Stewart shows off her bra in a sheer white top at the Variety Awards Studio on Wednesday (November 28) at a private residence in Los Angeles.

    The 22-year-old actress was recently honored by James Gandolfini for her performance in On the Road in Variety‘s Actors on Actors feature.

    “Kristen Stewart is one of the mad ones. But mad in a beautiful way. And she is determined to make people mad. To show them she is more than Bella in Twilight. To show them she does burn, and smolder, and wants more out of her career and life. And smolder she does,” James said.

  • Camilla Belle Claims She's a Virgin, Saving Herself for Marriage To Tim Tebow

    Hallowed be thy virgin who loves Jesus, football and TIM TEBOW as theself-proclaimed virgin and football star  is so head over heels for his new girlfriend that he’s already sizing her up for marriage, sources tell The ENQUIRER.

    The lucky lady is Camilla Belle, 26, a knockout brunette who shares the 25-year-old quarterback’s conservative views on premarital sex.

    “Both say they’re virgins,” an insider divulged. “They’ve been dating secretly since the summer, but they can’t hide their love any longer. “Tim is looking for a woman so he can have a proper engagement and church wedding, and he’s told friends that Camilla fits the bill.”

    The highly religious tweosomehe’sa devout Christian raised by Baptist missionary parents, while she was raised Catholic – were spotted getting affectionate during an Oct. 30 date at Latitude 30, an entertainment center in Jacksonville, Fla.

    Tim, who plays for the New York Jets, has been open about what he wants in a wife. In September, he told a reporter: “Obviously looks play a part...but there’s also so much more than that for me. It’s about finding someone sweet and kind – and that has a servant’s heart. It’s about finding a girl who likes me for me, and not because of what I do or who I am or the name.”

    Camilla dated singer Joe Jonas for about nine months after starring in one of his band’s music videos, but they ended the relationship in July 2009.

    Meanwhile, plenty of women – including reality star Kim Kardashian – have made a play for Tebow, but pals say Camilla’s the first to capture his heart. “Tim calls her ‘the woman of his dreams,’” added the insider. “He’s anxious to make Camilla part of his close-knit family.”

  • Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace at the Blag Magazine 20th Anniversary Signing

    Tom Hardy has played more than his fair share of crooks and villains. So it made a change to see the 35-year old star showcase a beaming smile at a signing in East London.

    Noomi Rapace joined Tom for Blag magazine's 20th anniversary event as they both appeared in it's special issue as the cover stars.
    Cover pals: Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace attend the Blag Magazine 20th anniversary special edition signing at Rough Trade East
    The Dark Knight Rises star looked far leaner than the muscular villain Bane he played in the final part of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.

    Wearing a khaki T-shirt, jeans and a beaming smile, Tom happily signed copies of the 20th anniversary edition to excited attendees.
    Alongside him, Noomi looked just as relaxed in Brick Lane's Rough Trade East store but had on far more formal attire.
    She wore a trouser suit similar to the style often seen on a certain type of female politician, but the Prometheus star added a bit of edge with striped socks and killer studded heels.

    Spell check: Tom concentrates hard on spelling his name correctly whilst Noomi looks on in amusement
    Pen pals: Tom and Noomi have never starred in a film together, but can now say they've shared a bath

    The 20th anniversary copy of Blag - featuring Tom and Noomi on the front cover - came out in August, but the East London event gave fans the chance to blag a limited edition copy for themselves.
    The issue featured exclusive photographs and in-depth interviews from the cover stars as well as a bevy of new and vintage interviews, unseen images and highlights from the last 20 years.
    For the last few months, Hammersmith-born Tom has been filming the remake of Mad Max in which he plays the title character Mad Max Rockatansky.

    Swedish actress Noomi shot to international recognition after playing The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in the original Swedish adaption of the best-selling series.
    Her latest film Passion sees the 33-year old get rather steamy with Rachel McAdams in Brian De Palma's thriller.
    However, Tom and Noomi have never starred in a feature film together, but as two of the biggest rising stars in the movie business, it may not be too long before they do.

    Forget Channing Tatum, according to social media, men would have preferred a certain Batman villain as People's Sexiest Man Alive of 2012. According to research firm Fizziology, the biggest man crush of the year is on Bane's Tom Hardy from "The Dark Knight Rises."

    The social media researchers gathered data on male actors who gathered the most buzz on Twitter during each of their last two films. Hardy blew the competition away.

    Tom Hardy: 20%
    Ryan Gosling: 4%
    Channing Tatum: 2%

    Like Tatum, Hardy also had three successful films out this year: romantic comedy "This Means War," Weinstein Company's "Lawless," and, of course, "The Dark Knight Rises," which has earned more than $1 billion worldwide.
    Hardy was also just cast as the lead in the film adaptation of "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell" video game and book series.

    Do you agree?

    Tom Hardy's Fiancée Charlotte Riley Reveals What It's Like To Date Him!

    Tom Hardy is engaged to the gorgeous Charlotte Riley, and she's spilled on her relationship with the hot Brit actor!

    Yes, we might be super-jealous of Charlotte's closeness to our crush, but the lovely lady is set to star opposite Tom Cruise in All You Need Is Kill next year, so we're thinking there might be a lot of men who are just as jealous of Tom H!

    So, how do Charlotte and Tom make it work? She told TV Choice:

    “We have a very strict rule that we see each other every two weeks. We’ve been lucky. The job I just did was very exhausting, so I took a long period of time off to spend time with my family and Tom, and he had some time off before. He’s doing Mad Max [in South Africa] now, so we had six months together. We’ve been quite blessed really and we make it work.”

    She also spilled the beans on what it was like to live with Tom when he was GINORMOUS for Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises:

    “It was wicked. It was really cool. It’s interesting living with a person that’s bald and five times the size he normally is. I said to him, ‘When am I just going to have a normal boyfriend where you’re not either bald and huge?’ He had a beard for like six months for Mad Max and he’s just shaved it all off. Hurrahhhhh! I was like, ‘Oh my God, you have a face! Amazing! There you are, the person that I fell in love with.’”

    Bless! What an adorable couple.

    Keke Palmer has come under scrutiny for allegedly lightening her skin. She implored critics on Twitter and Instagram to stop judging others by the shade of their complexion.

    She also informed her fans that while her weave is flawless, they, too, can have luxurious coiffures without sacrificing the health and volume of their natural locks.

    "Enough with these crazy complexion accusations. We need to stop separating ourselves by how dark or light we are. I have been the same complexion all my life, and if you think otherwise, don't follow me. #nofilter"

    "Wearing weave doesn't make you bald headed! #doyourhairhowyouwantto"

    Her new Mixtape "Keke Palmer" is now available for download on her official website.

    2012 will be one of the more difficult years to sum up, music-wise. There were lots of great releases, but unlike other years, there wasn't an album that I fell in love with (with the exception of my No. 1 pick). Of course, I said that when I was making my list in 2000, only to realize nine years later, almost 15 albums from that year landed on my "100 Best Albums of the Decade" list.

    In general, rock seemed to be in a holding pattern in 2012, ditto indie music. However, rap and R&B had a phenomenal year with not one, but three genre-changing albums: Frank Ocean's Channel Orange, Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d. city, and Miguel's Kaleidoscope Dream.

    10. Beach House: Bloom

    The biggest criticism I've heard about this album is it sounds too much like their last album, Teen Dream. I also heard it doesn't have many surprises. And it's too pretty. However, remove Bloom from its predecessor and listen to it on its own merits yields the same results: 11 tracks of beautiful dream pop.

    9. Cat Power: Sun

    Chan Marshall's medical and financial difficulties were fully exposed this fall as she was briefly hospitalized and news emerged that she was close to bankruptcy. It's unfortunate because in a more welcoming music landscape, Sun would be all over mainstream radio. The album's relatively… sunny turn is a rare marriage of accessibility and artistic vision. Nothing But Time may span 10 minutes, but the driving piano beat, Marshall's weary voice, and Iggy Pop's appearance make you want it to go on for another 10.

    8. A.C. Newman: Shut Down The Streets

    The birth of his son and the death of his mother caused A.C. Newman to be more direct as a songwriter. Shut Down The Streets has the feel of a warm, comforting '70s singer/songwriter LP. Adult responsibilities may permeate Newman's latest, but that doesn't mean he's lost his knack for creating insanely catchy choruses, especially on tracks like Encyclopedia of Classic Takedowns and Hostages.

    7. Krallice: Years Past Matter

    Krallice falls into the category of metal where your appreciation is going to depend on your tolerance for the vocalist. Like Opeth and Converge, Krallice has some amazing musicianship, but vocal-wise, if you're adverse to either banshee-like screams or Cookie Monster-style wails, you're going to be on the defensive. But give Years Past Matter a few listens, and its rewards become more apparent. It's Krallice at their most brutal and melodic.

    6. DIIV: Oshin

    Almost everyone has a genre that they're a sucker for. For me, it's '90s-era shoegaze, a mix of squalling guitars and dream pop structures. DIIV's debut album harkens back to that era, but their discipline to writing a great pop song prevent Oshin from sounding like a nostalgia ploy.

    5. Frank Ocean: Channel Orange
    Frank Ocean gave cash-strapped music fans one of the greatest gifts last year when he released Nostalgia, free of charge. Like Kanye West, Ocean spent years working behind the control boards. And like West, his first "official" album will likely be as iconic as Dr. Dre's The Chronic. The 10-minute Pyramids has the atmosphere and story detail that most filmmakers can't capture.

    4. Tame Impala: Lonerism
    Lonerism had the unenviable task of following one of the best debut albums in the past five years. Australia's Tame Impala's Innerspeaker managed to find a way to mine fresh material from one of the most played-out genres in rock: psychedelic rock. Lonerism continues Tame Impala's winning streak with swirling guitars, and spaced-out melodies.

    3. Fiona Apple: The Idler Wheel…
    Fiona Apple did the only thing she could to respond to fans upset that they had to wait five years for a new album: She made them wait seven years for another. Hard to believe it's been that long since she released Extraordinary Machine. While that album hasn't aged as well as her other works, it seems like The Idler Wheel... won't have that problem. Songs like Werewolf and Every Single Night are innovative in their own right, but on a track like Jonathan, Apple shows she can still destroy a listener with just a few piano chords.

    2. Japandroids: Celebration Rock
    Post-Nothing was the sound of two talented, hungry musicians going into the studio with the full realization that they may never make another album again. Fortunately though, that wasn't the case as Japandroids found an audience as well as critical raves. Celebration Rock is their victory lap; the sound of a band drunk on their Replacements/Springsteen influences, but with enough integrity to keep everything together.

    1. Miguel: Kaleidoscope Dream
    If you're a music geek who lives for lists, chances are at the beginning of the year, you begin to slot out spots in your Top 10 for albums you know will be part of your "Best of the Year" list. And there's no better thrill than to have one album from an artist you never even listened to a year before occupy the top slot. Miguel's Kaleidoscope Dream is that type of album. On the opening track, Kaleidoscope Dream sounds like it could have been at home in the late '60s, but on Use Me, it sounds like the soundtrack of 2022. More than anything else, Kaleidoscope Dream is simply a front-to-back collection of great songs, a feat that's becoming more and more rare in the age of iTunes.

    Thoughts on the list? I think Frank should have been #1 or at least in the Top 3 and I really haven't heard of most of these albums in the first place, how many have you listened to?

    latimes 2012-11-28 celebrity hoaxes
    LAPD investigates outside actor Ashton Kutcher’s Lake Hollywood residence in October after a text to 911 reported a home invasion robbery. It was a hoax.

    Celebrities are no strangers to invasions of privacy, with paparazzi snapping endless photos and websites publishing detailed information about stars' homes, including their street addresses.

    But there's a new prank in Hollywood, one that is causing major concerns for stars and law enforcement alike.

    "Swatting is a very real problem for those in the public eye," said Blair Berk, a criminal lawyer who has represented stars, including Mel Gibson, Kanye West and Lindsay Lohan. "It is only a matter of time before someone dies because of this stupidity."

    Justin Bieber and Simon Cowell are two of the latest high-profile victims of "swatting," a fast-growing phenomenon masterminded by anonymous mischief-makers who alert police to a bogus crime situation, prompting a tactical response — sometimes by SWAT officers — that involves a high-risk search for phantom assailants.

    Several officers have already been injured responding to such calls, and officials, including Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, fear it's only a matter of time before events turn deadly.

    Beck acknowledged that swatting has stretched the LAPD's emergency response capacity while endangering victims by placing them in potential confrontation with police firepower.

    "It not only draws public safety resources away from real emergencies, it places people at significant risk by the dispatch of armed police officers," Beck said. "Our big fear is that [swatting] will become more prevalent."

    In Bieber's case, someone inside a gated Calabasas mansion reported shots fired Oct. 10 and said the gunman was threatening residents, making clear he'd put police in his cross hairs when they showed up.

    Unbeknown to sheriff's deputies, that mansion was Bieber's. Multiple squad cars were scrambled, and heavily armed deputies arrived. They swept Bieber's residence and two others on the street before discovering it was all a hoax. The pop star, on tour at the time, was nowhere near the mansion.

    Chief Bill McSweeney of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department says the most sophisticated swatting maneuvers involve tricking caller ID so that a 911 call can be registered as having been placed from inside the very household being swatted.

    Investigators say a 911 call reporting an armed home invasion that sent firefighters plus a dozen police officers swarming down on Miley Cyrus' unoccupied Studio City home in August may have originated from a cellphone, then bounced over several Internet providers to hide its origin. Bieber's swatting was called in through a device that allows hearing-impaired callers to send messages over the phone.

    But even with the advanced software used by the LAPD, tracing spoofed calls or teletexts can be difficult.

    "If these calls originate with a throwaway phone," McSweeney said, "sometimes those are hard to track."

    No one has been prosecuted in any of the celebrity swatting cases, which also include incidents at the homes of Ashton Kutcher and Simon Cowell. But because of similarities in the Bieber, Cyrus and Kutcher incidents, police officials suspect the same person may have swatted the three stars.
