    A familiar Rosewood face is relocating to the newly established Ravenswood.

    ABC Family on Tuesday announced that Pretty Little Liars fave Tyler Blackburn will jump ship to the hit series‘ upcoming spin-off.

    From Liars co-showrunners I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick and exec producer Joseph Dougherty, the new bound-to-be addictive offshoot takes place in the titular Ravenswood, a town just a few miles away from PLL‘s own Rosewood. The series centers on five strangers forced together by a fatal curse that haunts the city, prompting them to dig into their hometown’s mysterious past before it’s too late.

    Blackburn — who plays Hanna’s bad boy-with-a-heart-of-gold boyfriend Caleb on the mothership series — will first pay a visit to the neighboring town during PLL‘s third annual Halloween special this October, with the spin-off debuting immediately after. The actor, meanwhile, will still be seen in Liars‘ upcoming summer season, bowing June 11.

    It seems that Chris Brown is not a fan of his on-again off-again girlfriend Rihanna having a social media relationship with her ex Drake.

    According to reports, Ri started following Drake on Instagram at 3 a.m. Saturday morning. The next day, Chris decided to stop following the “Diamonds” songstress on Twitter. The pair had been following each other ever since they reconciled last year.

    workout

    Her legs are often the focal point of her outfits on stage. And Taylor Swift revealed at just how she keeps her long pins in great shape on Sunday. The 23-year-old star was spotted leaving the Tracy Anderson Studio in Studio City, California and bared her famous limbs in a form fitting ensemble.

    The 5ft 11in star strutted out of the building in tiny black shorts which she teamed with a Nike tank top to complement her trim arms. The country singer carried a grey hooded top over her brown handbag and stepped out with bulky trainers on her feet. Her hair was still slightly damp from working up a sweat. Taylor wore dark sunglasses over her eyes as she left the facility which is favoured by stars such Gwyneth Paltrow the Kardashian sisters and model Molly Sims. Many stars use Tracy’s fitness services as they battle the post-pregnancy pounds but it seems Taylor is simply trying to maintain her desirable figure.

    She told Web MD magazine last December: ‘I like to feel really tired afterward, sweaty and disgusting. I don't care about losing weight as much as feeling good about myself.
    ‘You can't indulge without exercising, so I exercise because I love eating and I don't want to live without anything. But I also exercise because on the occasional day when I'm feeling low, it always makes me feel better.’

    Actors preparing for roles as superheroes usually pump iron and eat their vegetables to tone up for the big screen. So what about America's favorite porn star? After all, this is a man who—by the very nature of his work—has to look good naked. So when Deen stopped by GQ headquarters, we listened as he discussed his good genes, his routine, and what his doctor thinks about his chosen profession. The key to having a porn star's body turns out to be: Eat right and get laid. Easy enough!

    All that sex you have must be a solid cardio workout, right?
    My doctor actually told me that sex doesn't count as cardio and working out. And then the next time I saw him he had seen one of my scenes, and he told me, "You are OK." In the film world, people don't realize you're not just having sex. Sex on camera can be anywhere from 20 minutes to four hours. It all depends on the production and type of scene.

    It's also not just standard sex, like, "Let's just make each other's bodies feel good." It's physical, entertainment-style sex. So while you might ride a motorcycle in a certain way when you're driving to work, if you're a stunt person and you're going to ride that motorcycle on camera, you're going to do a totally different style of motorcycle riding. My whole point is that because of the on-camera sex, I have this insane style of stunt sex.

    It actually is very physically strenuous. It's a good workout. All the positioning and weird things. My doctor said so! Doctor-approved workout.




    How do you stay so damn thin?
    In addition to just naturally having that kind of thin build, my diet—from personal preference and choice—is lean. When I get my meal, I usually clear my vegetables first. Then I go to my proteins. If I am still hungry after I eat those two, I'll eat carbs. So I pretty much live on a low-carb diet by just personal taste.

    So it's just a matter of being conscious of what you eat, and passing on pasta or bread if you're already full?
    I've always been a fan of vegetables and fruits. If I'm going to grab a snack, I'll have a piece of cheese or an apple. That also benefits my physique and health. In addition to that, I have what is commonly referred to as "Jew Stomach." It comes with the religion. It's just where everything goes wrong—you get acid reflux, IBS type of things. Go talk to a group of Jews, and I guarantee almost every single one is going to be like, Oh my stomach. I've got an ulcer. Acid reflux! I got Crohn's. It's always something. So because of that I have to eat low sodium, because it upsets my stomach.

    Do you ever work with a trainer? Do you have a daily routine to keep you in shape for work?
    Really just the work part of my work is what I do. That pretty much would be the workout.

    How often do you work then?
    Every day! I'm on set every day. And also my routine daily is: I wake up at 5 or 6 a.m. and I get in front of my computer and do some office work. Then I realize I'm hungry and I just graze. I don't gorge—I graze. I eat some berries and some fruit and then some other fruits. And then some yogurt. I do that and then I go back in front of my computer and do some more work, and then about 45 minutes before I have to be somewhere I freak out because I need to be somewhere in 45 minutes. I run around the house like a mad man. I'm basically a tornado trying to put clothes on and shower and get ready. Then I rush out the door.

    Sofia Vergara, the Modern Family mamacita, landed the cover of Cosmopolitan’s June issue looking spicier than ever. In it, the Latin lady digs deep into her relationship with Nick Loeb, reveals her personal style, and explains why old t-shirts should be banned from the bedroom (yes, a woman after our own heart!).

    On setting a wedding date with fiancé Nick Loeb:"He was already married with a big wedding and I was already married with a big wedding, so we're going to something but not right now. When he proposed, it was my birthday, and I'd flown more than 100 family and friends to Mexico for six days of partying. It took me forever to arrange the logistics! If I had known I was going to get engaged, I don't do this stupid birthday."

    On rumors that she and Nick were about to become parents via a surrogate:"Well, because I froze my eggs. I had to go to my doctor's office a hundred million times to do injections. The [rumor] probably came from that. My doctor had told me 'We have a small window.' I said, 'That's so rude!' I already have a kid, so I never thought I would need to do that. But I will have to use a surrogate, because I had thyroid cancer and lots of radiation. I don't want to wait forever, but not yet, because I'm working like an animal."

    On whether she's high-maintenance in bed:"No one can be a sex kitten every day, and anyone who tells you that is lying. But I do wear negligees and Japanese silk robes. For a long time, I lived alone with my son and only saw my boyfriends in a hotel. So at home, I slept in old tee shirts. I realized when I moved in with Nick that I couldn't do that. Now, I only keep nice pajamas around, because whatever is there, I'm going to wear."

    On the exact moment she said to herself, I've made it!:"In my 20s, I was already known in the Latina market. When I moved to L.A., I used to go to this club. At the end of the night, everybody would come outside to get their cars. I would be next to Leonardo Dicaprio and Justin Timberlake and my car was always right out in front! Nobody knew who I was, but the valets knew because they were Latin. But I haven't been at this level until now. I'm greedy. I want to take advantage of my 15 minutes."

    On how her style has evolved:"I have learned that not everything looks good on me because of my boobs. Magazines will say, 'She is wearing the same shape again.' I'm like, yes! So what? My boobs are real. They're a 32F. I can't wear something backless, because what holds them up? Then the magazines would be saying, 'What was she thinking with those sagging tits?'"

    On a five-year plan:"I've never had a plan for anything. I know I'm not going to get any more shows like Modern Family. If it ends in five years, it would be great to do movies and focus on things like my Kmart line. Maybe have a kid. But I am going to be working my whole life. I love making money. I really love it!"

    Cher and her also-ageless mom, Georgia Holt, were kiki-ing with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show last night, when Jay surprised them by posting Cher’s mugshot, taken when the diva was just 13. It seems the Dark Lady got tired of sitting in her friend’s car while he ran an errand—so she drove it to a drive-in. Leave it to Cher to be an impatient diva even at the tender age of 13!

    NewNowNext contributor Chris Kelly had our favorite take on the shot:



    “The best part about this is the expression on her face It’s not even that she’s a little happy: it’s that she looks like she’s reached enlightenment. There’s a peace and wisdom about her here that floors me. Like, she got arrested in her teen years and suddenly figured it all out, making the conscious decision to become a drag queen superdiva, and then just went ahead and did it and was like, ‘no big.’”


    Now we just need to see Chad Michael’s mugshot.

    WORK ETHIC: Although he exited Balenciaga last November, designer Nicolas Ghesquière continues to captivate the press — and secure megaeditorials. To wit: The summer issue of Berlin magazine 032c, due out Tuesday, features Ghesquière on the cover in an embrace with actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, his muse, plus 38 pages inside.

    The magazine calls the feature its “monument” to Ghesquière’s final season, with Gainsbourg posing for photographer Karim Sadli in looks from the spring collection. Meanwhile, in the 14,000-word article by Pierre Alexandre de Looz, the designer breaks his silence on his split from Balenciaga and drops a few choice hints about his future plans — while skirting widespread speculation he will work with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in some capacity, possibly launching his own brand.

    “Ideally, I’d like to give myself a six-month break, to travel and discover things. I’m not sure it’ll happen because some interesting projects are on the horizon,” he says. “Given the projects and the offers I have on the table, the trick is to think about what is most inspiring, what can become a new way of working.”

    Later in the article, he seems torn between the golden handcuffs of a megabrand and the route less traveled. “I’m preparing something, but I have choices to make. I will announce something when I am ready,” he said. “Now is my time to question interseasonality — it’s always the opposite season somewhere in the world — and fashion’s need to be global while respecting the environment and local cultures and of course the usual six-month cycle for collections. I may decide to fulfill that mission again, and I’ll enjoy it as I always have. Another part of me absolutely wants to break these rules. I may be putting myself in danger, but that’s what I want these days. I enjoyed years of extreme comfort at Balenciaga. It’s fantastic to harvest that status to explore in new ways, rather than sticking to a routine, even if it was the most comfortable and incredible, I couldn’t be in a better position.”


    BoF Exclusive | Nicolas Ghesquière Finally Speaks On Why He Left Balenciaga



    After months of silence, Nicolas Ghesquiere has finally spoken out. Today, BoF brings you the global exclusive excerpt of his interview with System magazine where he reveals the circumstances surrounding his abrupt departure from Balenciaga.


    System magazine’s Jonathan Wingfield interviewed Nicolas Ghesquière several times between early December 2012 and late March 2013. This was the first time Ghesquière had chosen to speak publicly about his shock departure after 15 years at Balenciaga.

    Ghesquière opens up about why he left Balenciaga, his thoughts and impressions about the current state of the fashion industry and what the future has in store. As he mentions at one point in this defining conversation, “The best way to move forward is to go back to work.”

    What follows is a global exclusive excerpt from the interview.

    At what point into the job at Balenciaga did you realise you needed to wise up to the business side of the brand?

    NG: Straight away. It’s part of being a creative because the vision you have ends up in the stores. It actually makes me smile today when I think about it because it was me who had to invent the concept of being commercial at Balenciaga. Right from the start I wanted it to be commercial, but the first group who owned the house didn’t have the first notion of commerce; there was no production team. There was nothing.

    What was your vision for the brand?

    NG: For me, Balenciaga has a history that is just as important as that of Chanel, even if it’s a lesser-known name. It had the modernity, it was contemporary, and I’ve always positioned it as a little Chanel or Prada.

    But what makes Chanel and Prada bigger structures?

    NG: The people that surround the designers. Miuccia Prada has an extraordinary partner, whereas I was doing everything by myself.

    So without the right people, building something as big as a Chanel or Prada is unimaginable?

    NG: I don’t know if it’s impossible, maybe the system will change, but what’s clear is that those brands have family and partners surrounding them, and they have creative carte blanche. Prada, for example, has made this model where you can be a business and an opinion leader at the same time, which is totally admirable. It’s the same thing at Chanel. Sadly, I never had that. I never had a partner, and I ended up feeling too alone. I had a marvellous studio and design team who were close to me, but it started becoming a bureaucracy and gradually became more corporate, until it was no longer even linked to fashion. In the end, it felt as though they just wanted to be like any other house.

    You’re saying this spanned from a lack of dialogue?

    NG: From the fact that there was no one helping me on the business side, for example.

    Can you be more specific?

    NG: They wanted to open up a load of stores but in really mediocre spaces, where people weren’t aware of the brand. It was a strategy that I just couldn’t relate to. I found this garage space on Faubourg-Saint-Honoré; I got in contact with the real estate guy who’s a friend of a friend, and we started talking… And when I went back to Balenciaga, the reaction was, ‘Oh no, no, no, not Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, you can’t be serious?’ And I said yes really, the architecture is amazing, it’s not a classic shop. Oh really, really… then six months went by, six long months of negotiations… it was just so frustrating. Everything was like that.

    And the conversations, like that one about the store, who would you have them with?

    NG: I’d rather not say. There wasn’t really any direction. I think with Karl and Miuccia, you can feel that it’s the creative people who have the power. It was around that time that I heard people saying, ‘Your style is so Balenciaga now, it’s no longer Nicolas Ghesquière, it’s Balenciaga’s style.’ It all became so dehumanised. Everything became an asset for the brand, trying to make it ever more corporate – it was all about branding. I don’t have anything against that; actually, the thing that I’m most proud of is that Balenciaga has become a big financial entity and will continue to exist. But I began to feel as though I was being sucked dry, like they wanted to steal my identity while trying to homogenise things. It just wasn’t fulfilling anymore.

    When was the first time you felt your ambitions for the house were no longer compatible with Balenciaga’s management?

    NG: It was all the time, but especially over the last two or three years it became one frustration after another. It was really that lack of culture which bothered me in the end. The strongest pieces that we made for the catwalk got ignored by the business people. They forgot that in order to get to that easily sellable biker jacket, it had to go via a technically mastered piece that had been shown on the catwalk. I started to become unhappy when I realised that there was no esteem, interest, or recognition for the research that I’d done; they only cared about what the merchandisable result would look like. This accelerated desire meant they ignored the fact that all the pieces that remain the most popular today are from collections we made ten years ago. They have become classics and will carry on being so. Although the catwalk was extremely rich in ideas and products, there was no follow-up merchandising. With just one jacket we could have triggered whole commercial strategies. It’s what I wanted to do, but I couldn’t do everything. I was switching between the designs for the catwalk and the merchandisable pieces – I became Mr Merchandiser. There was never a merchandiser at Balenciaga, which I regret terribly.

    Did you never go to the top of the group and ask for the support you needed?

    NG: Yes, endlessly! But they didn’t understand. More than anything else, you need people who understand fashion. There are people I’ve worked with who have never understood how fashion works. They keep saying they love fashion, yet they’ve never actually grasped that this isn’t yoghurt or a piece of furniture – products in the purest sense of the term. They just don’t understand the process at all, and so now they’re transforming it into something much more reproducible and flat.

    What’s the alternative to this?

    NG: You need to have the right people around you: people who adore the luxury domain. There has to be a vision, but there also has to be a partner, a duo, someone to help you carry it. I haven’t lost hope!

    At the time when you were starting to feel that frustration, did you talk to any other designers who were in the same situation?

    NG: Yes. What’s interesting is how my split from Balenciaga has encouraged people to get in touch with me, and they’ve said, ‘Me too, I’m in the same situation. I want to leave too.’ There are others, but my situation at Balenciaga was very particular.

    In spite of the increasingly stifling conditions you felt you were operating in, were you nonetheless scared by the prospect of leaving Balenciaga?

    NG: I just said to myself, ‘Okay, well you have to leave, you have to cut the cord.’ But I didn’t say anything to anyone, apart from to a few very close people, because, you know, I’ve become pretty good at standing on my own two feet.

    Once you’d decided enough was enough and you made your intentions clear, was management surprised that you wanted to leave?

    NG: Yes. I think so, because I’d shown my ambitions for the house. There’d been lots of discussions, of course, and there were clearly some differences, but that sort of decision doesn’t just come out of nowhere. I’d been thinking a lot too. I was having trouble sleeping at one point. [Laughs] But there’s usually something keeping me awake.

    After the announcement, did lots of people in the fashion world contact you?

    NG: I didn’t actually see all the reactions straight away because I was in Japan at the time; one of my best friends had taken me on something of a spiritual trip to observe people who make traditional lacquer and obi belts; it was such a privileged environment with tea ceremonies. On the other side of the world, there was this violent announcement being made. When I got back to Paris I saw the press, and with all the commentary going on I actually learnt things about myself; it was quite beautiful in fact. Generally the reaction had been very positive, even on Twitter there were some very satisfactory things being written. Ultimately, I felt okay in the end because it seemed very dignified. I haven’t expressed myself up until now, but I would like to say thank you to everyone, I really am very grateful.

    Did you ever think about making a personal announcement?

    NG: No, I never wanted to express myself like that. I don’t know how to do that.

    What’s the most exciting thing about this period of time for you?

    NG: Preparing for the next chapter and having the time to observe what’s going on in the industry. People could have forever associated me with Balenciaga. We saw clearly when the split took place that there was a desire for my name, so I disassociated myself naturally from the house. That could have been a risk. It would have been different if Balenciaga had disassociated itself from me, but people had seen me develop my signature and knew that it might happen. That’s exciting because whatever choice I make, the possibilities are open, and that was confirmed with the freeing of my name from Balenciaga. I’d made so much effort and been such a good obedient kid in associating myself… Now I can imagine a whole new vocabulary. I’m regenerating again, and that’s very exciting because it’s a feeling I haven’t had since I was in my twenties.


    Kristen Stewart Told Ghesquière She’d ‘Run Away’ From Balenciaga With Him



    German magazine 032c has devoted its cover and 38 pages of its summer issue to former Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière, calling the feature a “monument” to Ghesquière’s final spring 2013 season. It's a hefty tribute indeed: There's a thirteen-page Q&A between the designer and Pierre Alexandre de Looz, a fashion editorial starring Ghesquière muse Charlotte Gainsbourg and styled by Marie Amélie Sauvé, and a meaty story by De Looz about Ghesquière's fifteen-year tenure at the house, bolstered with reverent quotes from major industry figures like Grace Coddington, Eric Wilson, and Hamish Bowles. It's a long read, to say the least, but full of interesting tidbits about Ghesquière's ideas and the history of Balenciaga.

    But let's cut to the juicy part: Kristen Stewart, a friend and "ambassador" of Ghesquière's, contributed several F-bomb-laced quotes to the piece. She tells De Looz:

    He is a reminder of how fucking annoying everyone else is. It’s not easy to walk a line that not every single person in the world is going to get in a second. Nicolas is the sort of person who loves swimming in rough water ...

    I’ve felt the happiest I’ve ever felt wearing these clothes. I’ve also felt androgynous and rigid. Sort of like you’re wearing a fucking building.

    She also recalls the moment after his final collection for Balenciaga, when he told her he was leaving the house:

    I was like, ‘Dude, are you okay?’ and he was like (in a French accent), ‘Yes. Yes. I will tell you soon, but there are things happening.’ Before I left, he was like, ‘All right, I'll tell you.’ I’m so fucking proud of him because what he was about to do would rock people’s worlds. He was just like, ‘Believe for me.’ I thought it was the coolest fucking thing.

    032c also gave the Cut an exclusive additional quote from Stewart:

    The look on his face after that show, he had this look like he was actually the kid who was being told he wasn't allowed to do something. And he was totally not going to stand for it, and I was like, 'I will totally run away with you.'

    And so she has! Balenciaga hasn't explicitly stated whether they'll continue to work with her post-Ghesquière, but their future seems unlikely. Alexander Wang, the label's new designer, famously expressed his loyalty to Liberty Ross, the wronged woman in Stewart's cheating scandal with film director Rupert Sanders last summer. Stewart has yet to appear in any of Wang's new designs for the label. This article skirts the issue, simply describing her as "an ambassador for the brand’s second new fragrance Flora Botanica."

    Thanks for joining us for today's Q&A Nikolaj. How do you feel about the growth of your character from season one through season two?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    I feel great about this.When we started out and shot the pilot and got the season pick up i was really hoping we would get to Season 3 because I knew that this was the season where a lot of things would be revealed about Jamie so I feel great about it.



    HBOAsia
    Having completed 3 seasons, what is the most significant change you like about Jaime?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Meeting Brienne has had a huge impact and probably more than he's aware of and I think if I had to pick one thing that's most significant I would say that it would have to be Brienne of Tarth.

    HBOAsia
    Which quality of Jaime do you hate and like the most?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Well, it's a difficult one because often they go hand in hand. His pride sometimes gets him into trouble but it's also a trait I like about him. When he finally reveals the truth of the killing of the Mad King you go, "Why the hell didn't you mention this before?" But his pride got int he way but I totally understand why he didn't because he knew that it wouldn't make a difference. That, you know, in the eye of the world he was still an oath breaker.

    scrapping4you
    If you, as a person, were to have to interact with Jaime, how do you think that would go?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    I would like him very much if I just met him pre-loss of hand. I would think, what a self righteous, arrogant prick. But I mean, he has such a sense of entitlement about him and he knows how to push people's buttons and he does. But I would say to him, "C'mon, take it easy." Then I would tell him to get a hair cut. He's got this whole Prince Charming life going on. Just go get a hair cut.

    VNoBar
    Except the Lannisters, which is your favourite house?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    The Tarth House if there is such a house. (this beautiful man and his good taste)

    bloody_violin
    Was it difficult to you to inerpret your character? What can you say about Jaime Lannister?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Was it difficult? No...it's challenging in a very good way because there's source material and the world of George RR Martin is so great and amazing and 3 dimensional, it's unbelievable. And Dan and D.B. and team of writers, what they've done in adapting it. It's such a joy to work on. It's so well written that the biggest worry is not to mess it up. It's a great challenge, I don't find it hard. What can I say about Jamie? What I said before, if I met him at a bar, I'm sure I'd like him. I know why he is the way he is. I can relate and understand what a difficult life he's had. He's grown up without a mother, with a dominant father figure. He's close to his siblings and he fell in love with the one person that he just should have not fallen in love with - his twin sister - it's just so complicated. It made his life so difficult. For him, challenging things, but for me, the actor, it's a big treasure chest of goodies to dive into. And I ilek the fact that when GRRM created it, all of the characters are very human and to the extremes but I can still relate to them and I can relate to people having preconceived notions. All these things, we can relate to. Every son has a father and everyone has issues with our parents. Of course, his are extreme issues because Tywin is quite something but that's what I love about it. And I think that's why people love the show. Even though it's a make believe show, what the characters go through.

    What is your favorite genre? Fantasy, political drama, science fiction...? Do you ever watch Danish television shows?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Yes, I do watch Danish television show. I just watched this show called Borgen. I like good writing. I love political dramas. I love good story-telling. The only thing I find difficult to watch - horror movies - not that I don't' like them. Like The Shining, it's one of my favorite movies, but it's terrifying. I feel like I've watched a marathon afterwards.

    If you had the chance to play any other character on the show, who would it be ?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    I think all the characters are great but I don't think I'd want to play any other character than Jamie. That's just the character I play and I love that character. Maybe Daenerys? I could do a good Daenerys, I think? Fly with the dragons. But no, Jamie's the one.

    In the war of 5 kings, whom would you bend the knee to?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    None. I don't think we have any good candidates as it is. I mean, I would think it would be interesting to see young Bran grow up and become something...that would be interesting, anyway. (again with the flawfree opinions)

    What has been the most rewarding part of being in the Game of Thrones cast?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Working with all of these amazing people and becoming friends and getting to know the crew, the cast. Dan and David. The people. That's the most rewarding thing. I've been working for 20 yrs and you know, it's really rare that the fans share the enthusiasm of the work. And since Game of Thrones has become so popular, it's a real thrill to share your own enthusiasm with so many people. Just the fact that we're doing what we do now, it's thrilling for me. That there are so many people who are willing to take time out of their day to ask these questions and are as passionate as we are. It's a privilege.

    How did you become interested in portraying Jaime Lannister? Was there something that attracted you about the character? #HBOCollege #Vandy

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Yes. There was quite a few things. I met with Dan and David and they told me the whole story. They mentioned the ending of Episode 1 and it got me really excited because it was so dark and twisted and so interesting. They told me about being Kingslayer and the whole situation. I saw right away that it would be an amazing part to play. You could just smell the quality oozing through them. I've had experienced feelings like that before but they didn't happen, unfortunately, but this time I got lucky. I still feel very lucky to work with them.

    CallMeWildChild (smh this person got to ask TWO questions?)
    Do you see Jaime more as a 'player' or a 'puppet' in the Game of thrones?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Neither, really. Definitely he has, up until this point, been a man, King's Guard, a soldier. Has done things he didn't awnt to do. But he does not want to be a player. Of course he is a player, he's a Lannister, a son of Tywin. As much as he doesn't, he's a player whether he likes it or not. I think he has no interest in playing the Game of Thrones but he's very loyal to his family but also, right now, he's in a moment transition. There's a scene with Tywin in the end of Season 1 where Tywin says, "I need you to be the man you were always meant to be" and I think he's on his way to becoming a man in his own right. It's going to be interesting to see if that's the man that Tywin wants him to be

    What would you name your sword?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Benjamin. (lol he would)

    iansteinberg
    Do you think Jaime loves or pities Tyrion? If you say both, what is the more powerful emotion?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    I think he loves Tyrion. I don't think he pities him. I think he REALLY loves his brother and I think Tyrion is the one that he's closest to and the one that gets him the most. He doesn't pity his brother.

    TJ_Allman
    Does Jaime's character development make him hard to play? Does you have to change how to portray him or was it natural development?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    The more secrets and twists in a character the better. I wouldn't want to play any other character on the show. Obviously things happen in Jaime's life that deeply affect him but the writing is brilliant in making it feel natural.

    SaintsGrrl
    Do you like the idea that Jaime is becoming a more sympathetic character this season?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    I have always liked Jaime. I think it's very much a question of learning more about him.

    MFosgrau
    How many times did you take the shot where your hand was cut off?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    I cannot remember. The night we shot that part of the scene I was literally sick as a dog so it is all a bit of a blur.

    daniellellanes
    After last week's episode, did you find yourself thinking "I hope Jaime never has to meet those dragons!"

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    I hope he gets to met those dragons!

    levifilm
    If you could have control over ice or fire which would you choose?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    Depends on the drink

    LOVELenaHeadey
    What was the funniest moment on the set?

    Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says:
    There have been quite a few. Gwendoline Christie is a very funny lady

    so blessed to have such talent portraying these characters on screen and knowing them so well, etc etc. I'm really liking all these little Q&As the cast has been doing!

    Britney standom is in total chaos today as Black Eyed Piss frontman, no.1.wants, officially revealed that he will serve as the executive producer on Britney’s 8th studio album.

    If you read the article, he clearly states:

    “…not producing and writing every song, but to be an executive producer on the songs.”

    This doesn’t mean every song is going to be a rehash of their previous collaborations, there’s still going to be Dr. Puke and Diplo productions and what not, it just means that he gets to oversee the entire project.

    He also goes on to say:

    “We can’t do another song about going on the dance floor. Really? Didn’t we see a bunch of Britney doing that already? Don’t we want to see something that comes from her heart?”

    Now, I could always use a “Britney on the dancefloor” tune and I’m sure we’ll get a few, but it’s time someone shifts gears on Britney’s career and has her bring something new to the table, don’t ya think? Besides, do you really think she’s going to flip the script entirely? Highly unlikely.

    Last but not least, let me remind you that one of Femme Fatale’s best cuts was “Big Fat Bass”. The track was so fresh, even for a masterpiece such as Femme Fatale. I won’t even dive into that one song they did called “Scream And Shout” cause we all know what a flop that was.

    Bring it will.i.am, my body is ready.

    He still is trash and I'll hate him forever, along with his music and the BEP, but then again, I decided to give him a chance since he wants to try something interesting for Brit's new album. Also, I love BFB and S&S grew so much on me (not to mention the fact that is was a worldwide hit :D). I for one am not worried. Brit never disappoints.

    I really don't understand why it took them so long to announce airdates for this. I'm worried it won't get enough publicity.

    Her love life is constantly whispered about in gossip columns.
    But on Saturday, January cleared her plans to make time for one very important lunch date with the most important man in her life - 19 month old son Xander.
    The pair were spotted going out for lunch in Los Feliz, California.
















    January wore vintage wash bootleg jeans, a tie-dye t-shirt and some brown thong sandals.
    She finished off the look with a straw trilby and some dark sunglasses to shield her from the sun.
    Xander also cut a fashionable figure in little boat shoes, checked shorts and a grey vest.
    They then headed to a gelato bar to get a treat in the Californian sunshine.
    Whilst the paternity of Xander is still shrouded in mystery, there's certainly one famous parent he takes after.
    With equally fair locks and the same striking eyes, the toddler is looking more like his mum every day.
    However, as he gets older, questions regarding who his father is won't disappear.
    And whilst others might offer sympathy, January has remained adamant that she enjoys raising him alone.
    She told Glamour magazine: 'People keep saying, "Oh poor you, being a single mum". But I don’t want to be pitied. I can do anything I want to do. I work, I date, I have friends. I have time for everything I had time for before. I just have an added amazing thing in my life.
    'I don’t think being a single mum is something I need to feel sorry about or need to go to group therapy over. It’s really a joy in my life and that’s it.'

    Hayden Panettiere, Nashville

    Although Panettiere's sassy and sexy Juliette Barnes was initially presented as a superficial threat to Rayna James' country empire, Juliette quickly became the most layered (and fun) character on the show. Panettiere surprised us with her vocal chops, whether doing a simple acoustic solo or performing in front of thousands, but she really wowed us with the emotional vulnerability she brought to what could have been a trite story line involving her mother's addiction. Sure, Juliette can still be a brat, but thanks to Panettiere's raw, honest performance, we often find ourselves taking her side of the argument.
