    Where's the beef Scott?

    Has the prospect of being thrashed by Strictly brought a more compassionate edge to The X Factor? Granted, the idea of the show having any edge at all 10 years on, is laughable. But the “double auditions” format – in the room Saturday, in the arena Sunday – seems to be bringing out the love in the judges, turning the spotlight away from the awful grind of thousands of no-hopers desperately trying their luck. The result is more Aw-factor than X-factor.
    Now even the auditions are more about “story” than talent. The concentration on fewer acts (already selected and vetted by producers), with the judges as complicit as the soaring string-sections in the background when it comes to wringing every atom of tear-jerking emotion out of back stories, aspirations and/or delusions.
    In the wake of last week’s headline-grabbing “Screwbo” triumph, in which a prison guard shook off her work shackles and shone, tonight it was the turn of a housekeeper, a check-out girl, and a bin-lorry mechanic to blossom. The latter had the judges retching with his references to “bin juice” but the squalor made his voice all the sweeter. So too with hotel maid Relley C, whose huge voice had the judges whooping. “That’s what you wanna see, someone who Relley wants it,” smugged Gary Barlow.

    Still there were the loons and novelty acts, but less to the fore. A 17-year-old yodeller had the unique distinction of getting Nicole Scherzinger hot under the collar with his epiglottal action. A cat-loving taxi dispatcher (queue the theme to Eighties comedy Taxi) gave the most cat-like performance of the night but was himself despatched surprisingly gently – Sharon Osbourne at her most faux sincere thanking him for coming along.
    A fourth-time trier, Melanie McCabe from Dublin, had Louis Walsh in tears, even offering a personal testimonial to her talent. But it was “angelic” 18-year-old Abi Alton who best represented the soppy new X Factor mood. A geekish singer-songwriter ready-minted for the Zooey Deschanel demographic, she had sweetness to spare and hearts were squeezed further by cameras lingering on her “unpaid roadie” outside – a doting, love-struck father.
    After a minute or two of performance to prove Abi had the raw talent to merit this enormous production work-up, we got straight back to the real business in hand: drama. As Barlow decided she was the “just what this competition needs”, Walsh furrowed his brow unconvincingly and expressed grave doubts that she could survive tomorrow’s arena round in front of a 4,000 people. The nation’s breath was held as votes were cast and Walsh relented. Gasps all round, thoughts turning to tomorrow’s show… I think we know where this is going.

    Literarily speaking, we worship at the dark altar of Gillian Flynn. But what's a murky mystery-loving girl to do when she's already powered through all three of Flynn's novels—Gone Girl, Dark Places, and Sharp Objects—and still has a ways to go till the awesome movie versions come out?

    Read the scary books that actually give Flynn the heebie-jeebies, of course. So we went straight to the source. "I've always had a fondness for the Gothic," Flynn said. "That's what kind of stories attract me: Why do people do bad things?"

    Speaking of people doing bad things: Flynn is clearly thrilled about which actors will bring the ones she created to life. We spoke before Gone Girl finalized its castings, but Dark Places had already signed up Charlize Theron as Libby and Chloe Moretz as Diondra.
    "Charlize is such a brilliant actress and about as far away physically from Libby as described in the book as you can get," Flynn said. "I can't wait to see her get down and dirty." And Moretz taking on the role of teenage mega-manipulator made total sense—especially considering a random observation Flynn's husband made years ago. "When Chloe was on 30 Rock, my husband turned to me and said, 'That's like baby Amy [in Gone Girl], if you ever need a flashback to Amy in high school." Fast-forward to today, and Chloe's taken it one step further—I think Diondra's a tad more evil than Amy would've been, but they definitely live on the same twisted spectrum.

    But enough Flynn fangirling. Let's get to her recommendations for nightstand material that's like nightmares come to life—in the most addictive way possible.

    Dare Me, by Megan Abbott



    We love Abbott too; she wrote an exclusive short story for our August issue. Dare Me is set in the world of high school cheerleaders; it's kind of like the book world's Pretty Little Liars right now.

    She's currently the hottest, most talked about model in the fashion realm, but Cara Delevingne is also ready to set our screens alight in her debut film.

    But the 21-year-old English model may prove too hot to handle as on her latest film set the fire alarm went off and she had to exit the building alongside her co-stars.

    Cara and actress Gala Gordan were spotted standing outside The Box club in Soho with the rest of the cast of Kids In Love, before all returning into the building after just ten minutes, on Sunday.

    Cara's costume was cute and sparkly, dressed in a gold sequined halter-neck top, adorned with sequin daisies and gold penny tassels, and a pair of high-waisted black leather hotpants.






    Her outfit was accessorised with a pair of black studded pumps, and a statement headpiece, which could just be seen under her mass of blonde tresses.

    The model looked super-slender in her ensemble as she rested against a wall and laughed with co-star Gala whilst looking up at the Walker's Court venue.

    Cara reportedly has a lead role in the Chris Foggin film which she was spotted filming with the rest of the cast - Alma Jodorowsky, Sebastian D'Souza, Preston Thompson and Gala Gordon – earlier in the day.

    Kids In Love is reportedly about a group of young Londoners who spend their days partying and taking drugs.

    It seems the storyline fits in uncannily well with Cara's life, who has gained a bad girl reputation due to her hard-core partying ways.


    Cara’s acting skills will be put to the test in a new Fendi film, shot by creative director Karl Lagerfeld in the outskirts of Rome.

    The seven-minute short film will make its debut on Vogue.co.uk on September 11.

    And with fashion week just a few days away Cara is certainly set to be busy over the next few weeks.

    Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has been the subject of death threats from One Direction fans after accidentally injuring band member Louis Tomlinson in Stiliyan Petrov’s game for charity at Celtic Park.

    Tomlinson, who recently signed a non-professional contract with Championship side Doncaster, was taken down on what looked like a fair challenge from the Villa man. The tackle drew the ire of some, let’s just say, overly excited, young admirers of Tomlinson. Several gems of fans protecting their heartthrob were unearthed on Twitter:








    Overreacting much?
    Tomlinson’s injury didn’t appear to be very serious, but it clearly left its mark. Tomlinson was also seen leaving his lunch on the sidelines shortly after picking up the knock.
    Not a good day for the pop star and his fans.

    For those who don't know, the charity match is for Stiliyan Petrov to raise funds for his cancer foundation and other charities. Petrov was diagnosed with acute leukaemia last year and has since retired from football. Here's the video of fans singing You''ll Never Walk Alone as a tribute in the match earlier, gave me chills:

    One duet performance is just not enough! Jennifer Lopez and Taylor Swift are set to collaborate on a new song, a source tells Us Weekly. The two ladies will be joining forces for a new track that will appear on Lopez's next album — her eighth -- due out early next year.


    "Both of them are huge fans of each other and excited to work together!" the source tells Us.
    Swift, 23, and Lopez, 44, finalized the plan after the "On the Floor" singer came out as Swift's last guest performer on her final Red Tour show at L.A.'s Staples Center. During the Aug. 25 performance, the two sang Lopez's 2002 hit "Jenny from the Block."

    "Sang Jenny From the Block with @JLo tonight at Staples Center. STILL FANGIRLING OUT ABOUT IT," the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer tweeted after the show. Lopez replied: "@taylorswift13 had so much fun with you tonight!!! #RedTourLA #jennyfromtheblock #hairbrushsongs."

    Lopez will be keeping busy in the next few months, as she is set to return to American Idol for a third time following a one-season absence from the FOX smash; she'll join returning judge Keith Urban and newcomer Harry Connick, Jr. Swift is also focused on her own music, mentioning during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards that her new music will be "really intense" coming up. "I think it's about to start to kick into full gear," she told MTV's Sway during the pre-show.

    Munich, Germany - German actress Diane Kruger, star of the new american show "The Bridge", that takes place in the border of El Paso, Texas and Juarez (Mexico), says that, unlike most americans, she's not afraid of working in Mexico.

    "I go to Mexico often. However, most of the time I go to a resort, I wouldn't dare to say that I know about the issues going on there, but at least I can say that unlike most americans, i'm not afraid of Mexico" - said Kruger in an interview with DPA.

    "Three people were murdered last year in El Paso", said the actress who lives in the United States and France. This compared to 749 who died just 15 minutes away, in the city of Juarez.

    The german actress portrays Sonya Cross, a detective that has the Asperger's syndrome, a type of Autism, who is hired to investigate a serial killer that kills on both sides of the border. "It's a very interesting role, an amazing one. A dream role for me"

    In her opinion, cable TV is living a golden age. "In America, super productions like Iron Man or Batman, or some comedy, get made. However, there's barely any space for good dramas. Especially for women is harder to get a role like this one" she stated. She also added that she's fan of series like "House of Cards", "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad".

    She shoots movies in America and France, two countries with very different cinematographic cultures. "I like both, otherwise I wouldn't do it. However, for me is very important to keep shooting movies in France. They write female roles much better than in America. On the other hand, it's a lot of fun to shoot movies in America. It's a huge industry."

    However, being a Hollywood star comes with a price. "Ever since the show premiered in the US, it has increased" - said Kruger about fame "They follow me in cars. I went to the police and told them I was being followed. Sometimes it's really dangerous and it's an horrible feeling sitting in your car, as a woman being followed by a bunch of men. I was in tears. I don't know what can be done against it".

    Even though she lives in Los Angeles and France, Kruger has a german passport, which allows her to vote in the next presidential elections.

    "I could (vote), but I won't because i'm never in Germany. I don't know enough about the issues in the country to say that I'll go vote. When I was in Venice I saw german TV and there was a discussion between Angela Merkel and...What's his name?" asked about Peer Steinbrück, Merkel's rival in the elections.

    The search for a director for the film adaptation of Rick Yancey's popular young adult book, The 5th Wave, may have just ended.

    J Blakeson is in talks to direct the sci-fi flick about a girl searching for her brother following an alien invasion. Fans of this book have drawn parallels between it and other famous young adult books like The Hunger Games and Twilight.


    Blakeson currently has a 2009 cult favorite in The Disappearance of Alice Creed under his belt. He was also listed as one of Variety's 10 directors to watch in 2010.

    Although the film has yet to be cast, it already has big names behind it. Susannah Grant, who wrote the screenplay for Erin Brokovich, is penning this screenplay. Meanwhile, GK Films (Argo, World War Z) and Tobey Maguire's Material Pictures are producing the film.

    And like The Hunger Games and Twilight series, should The 5th Wave series (a planned triology) make any sort of bank at the box office, you can certainly expect to see a sequel... or two... or three...

    The new Arcade Fire single, "Reflektor", features a voice that sounds a whole lot like David Bowie. Now, Bowie has posted on Facebook confirming the collaboration. He contributed "a brief backing vocal on the James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) produced track (no saxophone though)," according to the Facebook post.

    As Bowie's Facebook notes, the single will feature "Reflektor" plus an instrumental version on the B-side. It's being released under the moniker "The Reflektors", in the "reflekting sleeve" pictured above. (What appears to be a tracklist on the sleeve is actually selections from "Reflektor"s lyrics.)

    The track will be released tonight at 9 p.m.

    A second video for "Reflektor", directed by Anton Corbijn, will also be released today, following the interactive video that went live earlier. Watch a trailer for that interactive video below, and check out the full thing here.

    Interview: Jessica Chastain’s Career-Long Journey into  ‘Eleanor Rigby’

    Not so long ago, two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain, lest we forget, was an actress just trying to make her way into the business.

    The experience of making the upcoming two-part film, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,” captures both her Hollywood beginnings and just how far she’s come.

    “This goes back to 10 years ago,” Chastain said at the Variety Studio in Toronto on Monday. “I had won tickets to the Malibu Film Festival, when I first moved to Los Angeles. I was very excited. And I went to see the short films. There was an incredible short, just wonderful, and the actor and director were in the lobby (after) — it was Ned Benson. So I ran up to him and I said, ‘My name’s Jessica. I really want to work with you someday. Can I have my manager send you my reel?’ And then we became friends.

    “It’s an emotional thing, because it’s like a dream come true remembering all of us as friends, hoping someday that we would be in the film industry and work together. And today we’re premiering it for the world, and it’s very sweet.”

    “Disappearance” is divided into two parts, “Him” and “Her,” that can be seen together or separately in either order. The film is being shown in different fashions at the Toronto International Film Festival.

    “The story came from just from the fact that I really just wanted to write a love story,” writer-director Benson said, “and when Jess had read that (initial) script, we started talking about the character and who that character was, and it sort of gave us the idea to try the other side of the story.”

    McAvoy originally resisted doing the film, but the timing of it moving forward eventually ended up being serendipitous.

    “Ned sent it to me three years ago,” McAvoy said, “and for reasons I won’t go into because it would give something important away about the story, it was at a time in my life when I could not even countenance even taking part in a film that was about this particular thing that this particular couple are going through. It was very near to me at that time in my life.

    “And then two years later, another actor called Joel Edgerton was doing it, and he dropped out. Why, I don’t know — he’s out of his mind. He’s crazy not to want to work with these two,” McAvoy joked. “No, I’m sure there were real reasons. Ned sent it to me again, and it wasn’t so near to me anymore, and this amazingly sophisticated view on adult love really connected with me in a way that wasn’t scary anymore, but beautiful. And really about the trauma that we can do to each other … through love. And I thought that was really beautiful and touching.”
