Adriana Lima blows a kiss at the photo call to celebrate Victoria’s Secret at their new Bond Street store on Thursday (December 12) in London, England.
The 32-year-old model recently chatted with Vogue UK about being one of the longest-serving Angels, having walked in thirteen shows for the lingerie giant.
“I’m definitely the grandma,” Adriana joked. “I first walked in the show in 2000, but I was working with the brand even before that, actually. My first show, Stephanie Seymour and Karen Mulder were in it, too – and it is amazing to have done the show for so long… I love the new girls, though. Cara [Delevingne] is so cool. I love the girls that they choose, they are always super nice, really excited. It’s just the most fun job.”

LeAnn Rimes Shares Brandi Glanville’s Sons’ Private Personal Info On Twitter: Slams CDL Author Again
I am used to writing about LeAnn Rimes being snarky with people on Twitter and highlighting the conversation, but what is different this time is that I was involved. Before I begin let me clear something up, the way it works in celebrity gossip is we often write about celebs who are in the news and draw attention – and yes, right now LeAnn is a fairly hot topic and so I continue to check on her Twitter and write.
On Friday when I checked her Twitter I noticed she was communicating with a random person on Twitter – @mindysparties- and when asked if Mason and Jake – who are her husband Eddie Cibrian’s children with Brandi Glanville – go to private or public school she told them public. I found this disturbing because the internet is full of both stalkers and pedophiles and the boys have already had to move homes once because of stalkers, so it was my opinion that she shouldn’t share this type of information that can help people narrow down where the boys go to school – that should be up to the boy’s parents. I quote retweeted her tweet with my opinion attached at the end:
Later the @mindsyparties who was the random person LeAnn was chatting with tweeted me saying, “ … Oh give me a break! There was no personal or private info given out!…” to which I responded, “It is information and she is not their mother to be putting it out there. It is common sense.” She responded by saying:
It is important to note that at the bottom you can clearly see that LeAnn favorited her tweet, and she did so immediately which means she was actively following our conversation. This is important because after I expressed my opinion that there are important boundaries that should be respected by stepparent’s @mindysparties wrote a tweet implying that Brandi was worthless:
The time stamp on her tweet is 5:19. At 5:23 I tweeted challenging LeAnn to finally do the right things and stand up for Brandi, because Brandi has stood up for her in the past:
LeAnn responded at 5:25, only to @mindysparties and instead of standing up for Brandi she took a swipe at me instead. Typical. This is the same person who has called me a horrific “human being” and an uniformed fool -SIC.
What LeAnn fails to acknowledge is the simple fact that she lost public favor not because people are so insecure and sad, but because we are empathetic and do not have to be in the situation to be able to relate to the pain she continues to cause by exploiting her stepsons in an attempt to terrorize their mother. Her actions seem to indicate that she stalks Brandi’s timeline on Twitter and will then tweet things in an attempt to bait her. She has publicly called Brandi’s boys, “my boys,” and even once said that her tour bus is Brandi’s sons’, “happiest place.” She has publicly laughed at her stepson’s mom and has called her names on a number of occasions. But I don’t expect LeAnn to understand the concept of empathy because it is an emotion she lacks.
By the way, one of the hallmarks of sociopathy is, from WikipediA, “a diminished capacity for empathy or remorse.” Sound like someone, LeAnn?
LeAnn Rimes Scribbles On Her Arm, Stalks, Attacks and Tries To Ruin Brandi Glanville’s Christmas
LeAnn Rimes wants attention y’all so she did something my two year old would do and scribbled all over her dang arm. She was spotted looking pensive while doing some shopping in Beverly Hills on Wednesday with an arrow and some words written on her right arm. It is pretty ridiculous and like I said something only my youngest child would do but it does make for a pretty fun game of, “Let’s guess the scribbles.” I think it says Grace will elude you. Okay, that is probably not what is says, but that’s what it should say.
On her shopping trip LeAnn was also wearing her new ring (she was also wearing it in one of her latest creepy vine videos), and now that I see it up close it is easy to see that it is not her original ring. You know the ring she is said to have tossed and lost, hence the need for a new diamond from herself Eddie Cibrian. So LeAnn you haven’t worn your ring in 3 months and all of a sudden your mostly out of work hubby buys you a new diamond. Likely story LeAnn. Likely. Story.
I will say she looked a lot better for her day out shopping than she did for her most recent Casino concert. By better I mean she looks like she showered and brushed her hair, which is more than can be said for how she showed up for her paying audience – and yes many were very vocal about their disappointment. On the Argus Leader one person lamented that they were, “very disappointed in her lack of professionalism.” Well another wrote, “Her appearance was lacking. She looked like she came straight from the gym. We deserve a little more respect. Is it too much to ask for her to wash her hair, put on some make up, and wear appropriate stage clothing?” It is rude because these people paid for the whole package and instead just got a big ole mess.
But in perhaps the most infuriating and yet oh so typical LeAnn news this week (so far) is the fact that she is using what is most likely her last Christmas as Mrs. Cibrian to continue to stalk and torture Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville. First it was when she inserted herself yet again in Brandi’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills drama in an obvious attempt to get attention and bait Brandi, but that was her just getting started.
LeAnn almost never tweets about her in-laws, but that is because it isn’t every day that Brandi brings them up. Early on Tuesday Brandi tweeted about how she missed her ex-mother-in-law:
Her favorite weapon against Brandi has been Brandi’s sons Mason and Jake – so of course she had to get a nonsensical tweet about the boys in so she could be like, “look they are with us right now, sooo happpyyy.”
That tweet was almost as nonsensical as this one:
She obviously tweets about them just for the sake of tweeting about them. So weird.
Enjoy it all while you can LeAnn because this is probably the last Christmas you get to exploit those kids and intentionally try to hurt their mother. Eddie has one foot out the door and once he rings in the New Year I suspect his other foot will follow.
removed the huffpo article even tho it was a paragraph long mods!
It’s a second son for Rachel Zoe! The celebrity stylist turned designer and her husband Rodger Berman welcomed another boy on Sunday, Dec. 22, she announced via Twitter.
“So excited to welcome our baby boy into the world … he’s 7 lbs 12 oz, beautiful, healthy and we couldn’t be happier,” Zoe, 42, writes.
After weeks of speculation that she was expecting, Zoe confirmed the pregnancy in September. Since then, she and Berman have been preparing big brother Skyler Morrison, 2½, for his latest role — one that, up until recently, he was still unsure about.
“It depends what day you ask him. Right now he just doesn’t want anyone near Mommy except him, so I don’t know when that should change,” she told PEOPLE this fall.
But shortly before baby’s birth, Zoe admitted her plan was to let love conquer all.
“I’m madly in love with [Skyler]. I don’t know if it works out the same way with the next one, [but] I just plan to fall in love all over again,” she told PEOPLE.

The 27-year-old Transformers actress reveals she worked in the retail industry before becoming famous.
Megan has compassion for hard-working servers and she makes it a point to fill her wallet with money if she’s planning on going to an eatery.
"I always bring cash for tips, and I never give less than $20,” she told Us Weekly magazine. “I used to work in a smoothie shop, so I know the value of a tip."
In addition to tip money, Megan’s handbag is filled with a multitude of potentially valuable items when she leaves the house.
The stunner is always armed with things that will keep her mind occupied should she ever get bored.
"I only use black Sharpies [pens]. I'm very particular about how my handwriting looks. I'm also reading The Books of Enoch, which was once part of the Hebrew bible,” she detailed.
"My favourite TV show is Ancient Aliens, and this book describes angels in a way that sounds extraterrestrial."
Megan is currently pregnant with her and husband Brian Austin Green’s second child together.
The star previously spoke about what it is carrying a baby again and she is happy to report that it’s a little easier in round two.
"For the most part, I would say it's been a lot easier," she told E! News recently, noting her 15-month-old son Noah has been a huge help.
"I think that could have a lot to do with the fact that I already have a baby, so I'm so distracted taking care of him, that I don't really have time to sit and lament on the fact that I'm pregnant or indulge my pregnancy.”
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake closed out 2013 for Saturday Night Live with a ratings surge. In a lift that has become expected for the musical guest's many collaborations with the NBC series, SNL delivered its best numbers in nearly two years.
The Dec. 21 episode averaged a 6.3 rating and 16 share among households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets. The last time the series approached such a high was the Jan. 7, 2012, episode that saw host Charles Barkley get a significant lead-in from an NFL overrun.
Among adults 18-49, the 25 markets with Local People Meters gave the episode a 3.9 rating. The last episode of SNL to perform so well in the key demo, outside of NFL boosts, was when Timberlake hosted the 2011 season finale to a 4.5 adults 18-49 rating.
The last time a Christmas episode of SNL performed so well was the 2004 telecast hosted by Robert De Niro, with musical guest Destiny's Child.
The last scene we filmed together…
There was a unique sense of completion, of pride we shared… in the film we were now completing… the magic captured… and, in just how far we've come…

I'm gonna go be sad in a corner now.
TBH I didn't get why 7 had a 2014 release date originally anyway. All the other movies had 2 years between them anyway.
@selenagomez: Tonight we accidentally played ‘who wore it best’ with Katy and Sammy feat Sia.. Blending in with the carpet 😂 such beautiful company!

If you've been paying even a little bit of attention to TV ratings in 2013, you know the year's biggest trends: Cable continues to steal audience share from broadcast with megahits such as The Walking Dead and Duck Dynasty; DVRs are more important than ever; and America loves it some CBS. Dive deeper into the 2013 Nielsen ratings, however, and interesting things are revealed: Cable is starting to cannibalize itself; niche hits are multiplying; and the difference between what young and old viewers watch is astounding. Vulture gathered up reams of ratings data and started digging in.
More Established Cablers Are Feeling Some Pain
While cable continues to take away viewers from broadcast, the biggest cable networks are now seeing their audiences cannibalized as well. Fully half of the ten most-watched cable nets in 2013 saw prime-time viewership decline: USA (-8 percent), History (-2 percent), TNT (-2 percent), ESPN (-7 percent), and Fox News (-14 percent). A&E, which saw its overall audience jump 10 percent this year, had the best performance of any of the top ten nets in overall viewership. Among the 50 biggest cablers, Oprah Winfrey's OWN claimed bragging rights, with its audience jumping 27 percent from 2012. And among younger viewers, AMC was 2013's growth story: It grew 41 percent with viewers under 35 and 30 percent with those under 50.
The Biggest New Hit of the Year
… is clearly Blacklist. Yes, it's still early, it hasn't aired away from The Voice yet, and we all remember what happened to Revolution. (Refresher course: NBC hyped it as a huge hit a year ago last fall, but when the show moved away from The Voice, it totally tanked.) Despite those caveats, Blacklist has all the hallmarks of becoming a game-changing hit for NBC. It's drawing more total viewers than The Walking Dead, and it will end 2013 as the No. 5 show on all of TV among viewers under 50, outrating the combined spring and fall averages of The Voice and Fox's American Idol. It does well with both men and women. And while it’s getting big same-day ratings, it's also setting records with its DVR replays. (That's the best of all worlds.) Overall, Blacklist is NBC's most-watched new show since The Apprentice debuted in 2004 and its most-watched new drama since ER bowed in 1994. Even if it fades a bit next year, it's shaping up to be the kind of show that runs 200 episodes. The other top newcomers among adults under 50: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Sleepy Hollow, The Following, and Under the Dome. All five dramas ended up among the top 25 shows of the year with younger viewers (and that's combining broadcast and cable).
Cable Keeps Getting Bigger …
Despite headaches for some of the top nets, cable's biggest hits are getting bigger: Five of the year's top 25 shows among viewers under 50 were on cable. AMC had two big 18 to 49 hits, with The Walking Dead (No. 1 in all of TV) and Breaking Bad (No. 13); ditto FX, with American Horror Story: Coven (No. 18) and Sons of Anarchy (No. 21). A&E's Duck Dynasty was the No. 3 show on TV in 2013, outrating Modern Family, The Voice, and American Idol. Overall, cable's share of the under-50 audience reached a new high in 2013 (70 percent), with the Big Four down three percentage points from 2012 to collectively capturing just 30 percent of viewing in the demo. The demo most likely to make cable shows a big hit? Men under 35. Five of TV's top ten entertainment shows in the dude-bro demo belong to cable: The Walking Dead (No. 1), Breaking Bad (No. 2), Duck Dynasty (No. 3), South Park (No. 6), and Game of Thrones (No. 9).
… But Older Women are Still Attached to Broadcast Nets
The demo still waving the broadcast flag (and thus most likely to shun cable) is women age 25 to 54. The only cable show on their top ten list is The Walking Dead, which just makes it at No. 10. By contrast, three shows that don't make the top ten among all adults 18 to 49 — The Voice results show, NCIS, and Scandal — are all still squarely in the top ten for this older-female demo. The most popular show with women 25 to 54? CBS's The Big Bang Theory, with Grey's Anatomy in second.
The Generation and Gender Gaps Are Killing The Good Wife
CBS's Sunday drama landed on all sorts of year-end critics' lists. And it does pretty well in overall audience — with 11.7 million viewers this year, it ranks No. 36 among all TV shows, broadcast and cable. But among viewers 18 to 49, the demo advertisers really value, the show finished at No. 106; it falls all the way down to No. 223 among viewers under 35. What's more, all the young dudes who watch Sunday football on CBS can't run away from it fast enough: Of Good Wife’s overall audience of 11.7 million viewers, just 259,000 are men under 35. More young men watched ABC's short-lived reality flop Splash (279,000) and NBC's Betty White–hosted Off Their Rockers (269,000).
Among African-American adult viewers under 50, Scandal is the No. 1 non-sports show on broadcast, doubling the numbers of the No. 2 show of 2013 (American Idol) and nearly tripling the ratings of the No. 3 show, lead-in Grey's Anatomy. Among Latinos and Asians under 50, however, comedy rules: The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family finish No. 1 and 2, respectively. (By contrast, those two comedies don't even crack the top twenty with African-Americans.) Among the major networks, Fox does particularly well with minority audiences: It has seven of the top twenty shows with African-Americans, Asian Americans, and Latinos.
This Is Why Networks Shouldn't Be So Quick to Cancel Shows
In 2012, ABC canceled Cougar Town, convinced it could do better than a comedy that was averaging 2.4 million viewers under the age of 50. In 2013, the show moved to TBS, and its audience got smaller: It averaged 1.7 million in the 18-49 demo (2.4 million total). And yet, here's the ironic part: That smaller demo number on TBS still ended up being bigger than a slew of shows ABC aired in 2013 instead of Cougar Town: Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (1.6 million), the five episodes of Happy Endings that ABC aired on Fridays at 8 (1.6 million), the ABC News show What Would You Do? (1.6 million), the once-mighty game show Wipeout (1.5 million), drama series Motive (1.5 million), comedy bomb Family Tools (1.4 million), and the Anthony Edwards dud Zero Hour (1 million). Cougar Town might not have been a huge hit for ABC, but its move to TBS proved it had a loyal audience — one that ABC lost out on when it gave up on the show.
Fox has some of the youngest-skewing shows on network TV. All of its Sunday-night toons boast viewers whose median age is 34 or younger (with The Cleveland Show skewing youngest, 31 years old). New Girl (34) and The Mindy Project (35) are the youngest-skewing live-action shows on the Big 4; the CW's The Carrie Diaries (34) and The Vampire Diaries (34) are similarly bereft of older viewers. Some shows you'd expect to have a more youthful audience still have plenty of Gen-Xers and above watching, though. The median age of the Glee viewer is now 41; CW's Arrow is up to 48 (two years older than that of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). And then there are shows that are just as old as you'd expect: Viewers of ABC's Dancing With the Stars have a median age of 61. Among network shows, only Blue Bloods (62) skews older. By contrast, TV's biggest show — The Walking Dead — has a median age of 33. (Which, you’ll note, is the same age Jesus was when he rose from dead. Coincidence? Or biblically foretold?)
If I Were a Rich Man (I'd Probably Watch Modern Family)
ABC's Modern Family had the most affluent audience of any broadcast show in 2013, with its viewers boasting a median income of $82,400. The show with the lowest median income? The CW's short-lived game show Oh Sit! Still, wealthy-ish folks make bad viewing choices, too: After Modern Family, the TV show with the second richest audience profile was NBC's Smash, whose audience boasted a median income of $81,100. Other shows whose viewers had a median income over $75,000 (in descending order of wealth): The Amazing Race, Fringe, The Bachelorette, The Good Wife, Happy Endings, The Office, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, 60 Minutes, Don't Trust the B--- in Apt. 23, and Suburgatory. As for lower income shows, the series with audiences making do with median incomes of $45,000 or lower (in addition to Oh Sit!): American Dad, Cops, Perfect Score, and The Cleveland Show.
Musn't-See TV (Unless You're Older)
Without The Office, 30 Rock, and Up All Night on its air this fall, NBC was pretty sure it would get a big bump in viewers. Just the opposite happened, with the Peacock suffering double-digit declines versus already-anemic year-ago averages. And the Peacock's new Thursday lineup of Must-Family TV didn't just lose eyeballs, it lost young viewers, leaving its audience both smaller and older. In the 9 to 10 p.m. hour, Sean Saves the World and The Michael J. Fox Show have median ages of 51, making them more than a decade older than Office and Parks (which each had a median age of 36 earlier this year). And it's not just Thursday. Almost all of NBC's new shows this fall skew older than the shows they replaced, with one exception: Friday's Dracula is a bit younger than Dateline. While this isn't altogether a bad thing — in the case of a show like Blacklist, it just means more people are watching NBC and pushing up the median age — in general, advertisers prefer shows with younger skews.
Great Buzz, No Viewers
Plenty of people have caught up through repeats and VOD, but in its initial run, BBC America's Orphan Black drew a very small crowd: Just 661,000 viewers on average. But it's hardly the only highly praised cable effort to struggle for eyeballs. IFC's most recent season of Portlandia drew only 514,000 viewers last winter. Its numbers are gigantic, however, compared to some of the net's other comedy offerings: Maron averages 187,000 viewers with first-run episodes, while Comedy Bang Bang settled for 122,000. (To put that in context: Nearly 1,300 other shows in 2013 had a bigger audience than Comedy Bang Bang.) And maybe subtitles do keep viewers away: Despite stellar reviews, the French drama The Returned averaged only 174,000 viewers for its first four episodes. That's around one percent of the viewership for that other zombie show airing on Sundance’s sister net, AMC.

Anyone who was hoping for a provocative look into the life of Britney Spears' world by watching "I Am Britney Jean" on Sunday (Dec. 22) likely walked away disappointed. The E! film, sadly, came across as nothing more than a commercial for her new album and Las Vegas residency.
Tracking Spears from the announcement of her contract with Planet Hollywood to just before the show's opening (since it doesn't open until Dec. 27), the film is so tightly produced, so carefully edited, so singularly focused on the creation of this new show she's mounting, that it's clear there was no intention to aim for revelatory art. That's why it is airing five days before she opens in Vegas, after all -- All the better to sell tickets.
That's not to say the entire film is without its merits. There's an interesting film about on Spears' dancers and choreographers trapped somewhere deep within this bland advertisement. The whole thing would pop to life whenever focus went their way. Sadly, that didn't happen often.
If the goal of the evening was to present a reinvigorated Spears, who admittedly hasn't seemed this invested in her career in quite some time, and sell tickets -- well, mission accomplished. But for anyone looking to learn anything new about the pop icon, well, better luck next time.
- The best Britney one-liners:
- "Watermelon. Watermelon bubblegum, it's the best."
- "I think cheesy is good. Extra cheese, honey. Extra cheese and simplicity."
- "It's an overall place of celebration and family and fun" - Britney on Vegas
- "I was so into having water. I haven't had water in forever."
- "I want some Skittles!"
- Britney visiting those young cancer patients was actually lovely to see. Too bad we couldn't have seen more of things like that.
- Also, that joy on Jayden and Preston's faces at the end, watching their mom's show? Too. Cute.
What did you think of I Am Britney Jean, ONTD?

Sky Ferreira: 'I feel like I'm doing a bad job at being a feminist if I'm not making someone angry'
Sky Ferreira has discussed her approach to feminism, saying she feels like she's doing a bad job if she's not making someone angry.
In an interview in this week's NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now, the singer discusses the artwork to her debut album 'Night Time, My Time', which features a photograph of her naked in the shower.
The image was shot by Gasper Noè, who has previously directed films such as Enter the Void and Irréversible and recently worked on the video for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds''We No Who U R'.
"You're supposed to sell your body in a way that's like… it's OK to be sexy when it benefits everyone else," she says, responding to some of the criticism about the cover art. "Most of the people who had a problem with it were men. At this point, I feel like I'm doing a bad job of being a feminist if I'm not making someone angry."
"But I'm making art and doing things that are true to my work," she continues. "I'm not trying to sell my body. But it's my body to sell if I did want to! This kind of cover isn't even what sells – what sells is your face, shot by a fashion photographer, but I didn't want to do something like that. I do that all the time."
'Night Time, My Time' was released on October 29.

Phil Robertson made some very controversial remarks about race and sexual orientation in a recent interview for GQ, and, as a result, has been suspended by A&E. This Duck Dynasty drama has drawn all kinds of supporters out of the woodwork, including fellow reality star Josh Duggar. How did the eldest son on 19 Kids and Counting respond to A&E’s decision?
Like the Robertsons, the Duggars are notorious for their conservative Christian values. As such, it should come as little surprise that the politically influential Josh Duggar is willing to side with Phil Robertson in the midst of a massive Duck Dynasty controversy. After hearing reports of the Phil’s suspension from the popular reality show, Josh took to Twitter to share his thoughts. “Phil Robertson’s anatomical comparisons were crude, but that isn’t the real controversy here. Religious intolerance shouldn’t be tolerated.”
Josh Duggar showed further support for the Robertson family on Instagram, where he posted a photo of the Duck Dynasty patriarch, along with the following popular Phil Robertson quote: “I think our problem is primarily a spiritual one…where there is no Jesus, evil always reigns.”
No word yet from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as to whether they stand by the Robertson family. But we’re pretty sure the Duggar parents would gladly take the same stance as their beloved son.
Geraldo Rivera came to the defense of embattled celebrity Alec Baldwin with a bizarre claim the the term "Cocksucking Faggot" was not a gay slur. Baldwin has been taking a lot of heat lately for yelling the insult at a paparazzi photographer back in November.
During an appearance on Sean Hannity's show, Geraldo Rivera made the statement that he did not believe that the term "Cocksucking Faggot" was as much a gay slur as it was an insult with a general meaning from a forgotten era.
Geraldo Rivera said: "I don't think are insults are equal. [Where Bladwin grew up] those comments were commonplace ... you have to give people some slack."
Geraldo was aguest commentator on the show where Hannity and aguest panelist named Rachel Sklar were having a heated debate on whether A&E had erred in suspending Phil Robertson, star of Duck Dynasty, for his recent derogatory comments about the Gay community.
Geraldo Rivera further claimed that Alec Baldwin had been "drummed off MSNBC by fundamentalist gay activists".
Benedict Cumberbatch may be one of the biggest actors out there at the minute, but with the star rumoured to have been given a part in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7 movie, he says that he's been pestering the director by pretending to be a lightsaber. Standard.
The Sherlock hunk told The Metro that he left voicemails on director JJ Abrams' phone.
"Yeah, it started with me with sort of… I just sort of would leave casual messages on his phone as a lightsaber," Cumberbatch explained. "I thought he thought he was getting bad cell reception or something."
The movie has been given an initial release date of December 18, 2015 - will Benedict be among the cast members?
Meanwhile, in other Benedict news, with less than a month to go before the third series of Sherlock returns to our screens, Cumberbatch has revealed that he is nervous about reaching fans expectations when the mystery behind Sherlock's fake death is solved.
Speaking to the Radio Times about the impending new series which will begin on January 1 with The Empty Hearse, Benedict said: "It's important for me to state this. Everyone keeps on banging on about the expectations of how he survived his fall at the end of series two. I'm much more worried about how I introduce myself to the world."
Discussing how Sherlock will react when he returns and his friend and family find out that he never died, Benedict continued: "Although he’s been through a s**tload, as we discover. In his own way it’s cost him. It’s all about how Watson responds to this man coming back.
"Spare a thought for Sherlock. He’s had his challenges and had to confront them on his own. He’s coming back to, not a changed London, but his London is very changed.
"An empty flat, an engaged best friend, and not knowing how to engage with that is heartbreaking. It should be. It should be funny, but it should also be upsetting, hopefully. I hope to God it’s not too cute and that I got it right."
"I’m more nervous about that than anything else, about the gradations of him introducing himself back to Watson," he said.
That's odd. I thought he had already been in a Star Wars movie?

Joe Jonas is ready to ring in the New Year, and you can join in on the fun!
E! News has exclusively learned that the 24-year-old singer will be hosting a New Year's Eve event at Hollywood hot spot The Library in The Redbury Hotel next Tuesday night, starting at 9 p.m.
Joe will be spinning on the ones and twos for a set (DJ Danger is the house! Woot!) and is expected to lead the countdown to midnight. Now here's where you come in...
If you want to party with the Jonas Brothers star, you can purchase a general admission ticket for $150, which includes a hosted bar and appetizers from Cleo. If you have some extra cash to spend, you can get real fancy with a VIP bottle package, which starts at $4,000 (that's not a typo). That includes a VIP preparty event with Jonas from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Joe has been getting back into the DJ scene lately. He recently showed off his skills at Siren Studios for the launch of the refreshment company's new book set.
The celeb will have more time to do things like this now that the JoBros have officially decided to break up. The trio—known for hits like "SOS,""Burnin' Up" and "Lovebug"—canceled their 19-city fall tour on Oct. 9, just days before it was scheduled to begin. "There is a deep rift within the band," the group's rep explained at the time. "There was a big disagreement over their music direction."
At the time, E! News learned that Joe plans to make another solo album and challenge himself as an actor. "This is the first time in a long time we've had time to focus on ourselves and support each other through that. Like Nick [Jonas] said, we know it's going to be sad for a lot of people, but for us, we are looking forward to the future."
