Elizabeth Olsen didn't set out to become an indie darling. "I didn't really have another option—those were the jobs I was getting," she says. Good thing for her, because the 25-year-old, so mesmerizing in 2011's Martha Marcy May Marlene, has earned the kind of critical praise that actors dream of. "I feel very lucky that the reviewers have been on my side, even when it comes to a project that isn't so great," Olsen says. "I was seizing every opportunity. I'm not embarrassed by my work in them or anything—it's all learning."
Subsequently, she's landed two huge commercial movies, Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which she's filming now, and Godzilla, opposite critics' pets Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, and Sally Hawkins, opening May 16. "The cool thing is the studio pieces I have been lucky to become a part of are ensemble pieces, so it's not like I have this Hunger Games on my back. It's not going to skyrocket one person; it's a team thing."
At Broome Street General Store in Silver Lake, near where the actress is crashing with her fiancé, model/actor Boyd Holbrook, Olsen goes unrecognized. With her long, wavy blonde hair spilling out of a watchman's cap, holey J Brand jeans, and oversize Theyskens sweater, Olsen (Lizzie to her friends) could be any other hipster at the tiny outdoor coffee shop. And she prefers it that way: "I definitely know what kind of lifestyle I want to have. Some people recognize you for your work, not for being pictured going to clubs. So, I try and keep that kind of profile that people know you from your work and that's it. There are some jobs that I've said no to, because I know what kind of attention they will bring. I choose not to have that specific kind of attention."
Though her sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, named one of their fashion lines Elizabeth and James (which happens to be the given name of their brother), she insists she's not their muse: "God, no. I just try and see what they do and copy them like the rest of the world does." So that Olsen name—boon or burden? "Everyone has their hurdle to get over, and if mine is that I have to [prove] I've earned my jobs, I'm OK with that," she says. "I'm in it for a ride, and I'm in it for the long run." We're happily going along for the ride.
PROVENANCE: Sherman Oaks, CA
CURRENT RESIDENCE: NYC
BIG BREAK: Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011)
SEE HER NEXT IN: Godzilla, out May 16
WHO KNEW? While a student at New York University, she worked as a licensed real estate agent for two summers.
Supermodel Heidi Klum is drawing outrage for promoting a Germany’s Next Top Model photo shoot featuring stereotyped attempts at Native American costumes, also known as ‘redface’. Playing dress-up as a Native American — or any other racial group that isn’t your own — is widely considered unacceptable, so her foray into redface is remarkable in the year 2014.
Redface is wrong for a variety of reasons. It flattens the unique attributes of hundreds of Tribal Nations into a few props like the peace pipes and headdresses featured in Klum’s photo shoot. As with the name and mascot of Washington, D.C.’s football team, it asserts that non-Native enjoyment is more important than real Native Americans, who are presented as a disappeared primitive people. As Ruth Hopkins writes in Racialicious:
"Natives are not costumes one can take on and off. When people dress up in stereotypical ‘Indian’ garb, they’re not only denying the existence of 566 distinct Tribal Nations, they’re mocking an entire group of human beings based solely on their race and heritage. Natives haven’t lost touch with what’s sacred either, and we do not take kindly to ceremonial objects like the pipe being used to hawk your wares, nor garner publicity for your second rate reality TV show."
Even Klum’s fans were not impressed. “Thank you Heidi Klum and GNTM for contributing to the fetishization and hypersexualization of Native Women,” one Facebook user wrote as a comment on the album. Another wrote, “this is not right and not respectful…” And one more, translated from German: “WOW! That is absolutely disgusting and offensive. Ugly! Racist! Demeaning to our heritage, religion, culture… our nation.”
It’s very easy not to dress up in costumes that use racial and ethnic groups as novelties. It’s a Halloween tradition at this point to remind people beforehand that it’s not okay to dress as someone of another race. Then they do it anyway. Part of the problem is the wealth of racist options available for purchase at your typical costume shop. When companies offer ‘Sassy Sqaw,’ and ‘Sexy Arab‘ without even looking at another letter of the alphabet, customers must think it can’t be too bad.
But in recent years, the internet has provided an important counterweight by publicly shaming people who dress up in redface, blackface, or other racially appropriative garb. So while some brush aside the potential pain stereotypical costumes cause real individuals who live daily with oppression and appropriation, the Internet will ensure that they are publicly shamed. Yes, even if you’re not a celebrity.

At the rate she’s going, Tavi Gevinson will be EGOTing, topping The New York Times best-seller list, and winning a C.F.D.A. before she can legally drink. Gevinson, who is 17, will be making her Broadway debut in Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth this August. And the rest of the casting is similarly Tumblr-y, with Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin playing the other two leads. The trio will play “three aimless New York City teens”; Gevinson will be portraying Jessica, an “anxiously insightful young woman,” whom Cera’s character, Warren, “yearns for.” (That Cera, always the “yearner”!) This promises to have the highest quotient of Audience Members Who Are Wearing Thick-Framed Hipster Glasses of any Broadway show yet.
This Is Our Youth was first performed in New York in 1996, with Josh Hamilton in Culkin’s role, Mark Ruffalo in Cera’s, and Missy Yager in Gevinson’s. In subsequent productions, it has featured a range of future Hollywood actors, including Matt Damon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Casey Affleck, Freddie Prinze, Jr., and Anna Paquin. Lonergan, who has earned two Oscar nominations for best screenplay (You Can Count on Me and Gangs of New York), recently saw the lengthy legal battle surrounding his feature Margaret—which hit theaters in 2011, six years after it was filmed—come to a close.
Gevinson, who first gained acclaim at the age of 12 due to her successful fashion blog, is now the editor in chief of the popular site Rookie, for which she’s interviewed the likes of Lorde and Emma Watson. She’s modeled for Rodarte; styled a shoot for BlackBook Magazine; and twice been named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 in media list. She made her feature-film debut in Enough Said last year opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and chatted with Miley Cyrus about feminism for this month’s Elle cover story. Seriously, she makes James Franco looks like a slacker.
The autopsy on Peaches Geldof, who died suddenly aged 25, has proved inconclusive, as police continue to await the results of toxicology tests.
Peaches, who wrote for British magazines and newspapers and presented celebrity-driven television shows, was found dead at her countryside home on Monday.
The local Kent Police force in southeast England said her death was being treated as "a non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death".
"A post-mortem examination held on Wednesday following the death of Peaches Geldof has proved inconclusive pending the result of toxicology analysis," police said in a statement.
"Officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death in order to compile a report for the coroner. "The result of a toxicology report can take several weeks."
Synopsis: The follow-up film to 2002's "L'Auberge Espagnole" and 2005's "Russian Dolls" -- A 40-year-old father of two (Romain Duris), still finds life very complicated. When the mother of his children (Kelly Reilly) moves to New York, he can't bear them growing up far away from him and so he decides to move there as well.
Directed by: Cedric Klapisch
Starring: Romain Duris, Kelly Reilly, Audrey Tautou, Cecile De France, Adrian Martinez, Jason Kravits, Sandrine Holt
Release Date: May 16, 2014 (NY, LA)
Before embarking on the ‘ARTPOP Ball’ World Tour, Lady Gaga took the stage for the final set of shows at New York City’s storied Roseland Ballroom. The last of which took place Monday night, officially closing down the venue. Lady Gaga received positive reviews for all seven shows she played over the past week and a half and her upcoming tour has seen a benefit. The tour doesn’t start until May 4, but the average price for Lady Gaga ‘ARTPOP Ball’ tickets on the secondary market have gone up 5.3% for ‘ARTPOP Ball’ since the start of the Roseland run.
The second date of the tour, April 6 at Philips Arena has seen one of the biggest increases over the past week at 9%. Lady Gaga Atlanta tickets have an average price of $247.96, 4.4% above the average tour price of $237.44. As the average price has risen above average for this date, the get-in price of $50 has remained on par with the rest of the tour.
Lady Gaga’s return to New York on May 13, this time at Madison Square Garden, is one of the more expensive concerts on the tour. Lady Gaga Madison Square Garden tickets have an average price of $338.81, 42.6% above the tour average, but still cheaper than the average price for the first night at Roseland. The price at The Garden trails only the July 19 concert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas that has an average secondary market price of $339.21. The get-in price for MSG is significantly higher, though, $82 compared to Las Vegas’ $50.
One of the least expensive dates in a major city comes June 30 at the TD Garden. Lady Gaga Boston tickets are 15.6% below the tour average with an average price of $200.28. The get-in price still remains slightly higher than the tour average at $57. Chicago sees the opposite problem when the tour rolls into the United Center on July 11. The average price of Lady Gaga TD Garden tickets is $327.14, but the get-in price is just a tour average $49.
The most interesting price shift across the tour occurs with two shows in Los Angeles. Lady Gaga will be playing back-to-back nights at the Staples Center on July 21 and 22. The average price for Lady Gaga Staples Center tickets for the first night is well above the tour average at $331.10 with a $52 get-in price. The first night is one of the most expensive of all dates, but the next night has just a $189.09 average price, 20% below the tour average, and an above average $57 get-in price. The July 22 show was added to the schedule after the initial demand for the first Staples Center show, allowing fans who missed out on the first show to grab a better deal on the second show. Staples Center is the only venue that will host back-to-back nights on the tour. It’s likely the prices for both concerts will even out as the dates get closer.
Lady Gaga won’t be playing any more club-like venues for the upcoming dates, but her performances at Roseland have added interest to her upcoming arena performances.
When will Angela Cheng?
Anthony Mackie: Nick Fury Is The Falcon's Dad
Anthony thought that they looked so similar in "Captain America," that he pretended that Samuel L. Jackson was his long-lost father.
he's seriously the best. such a job to watch!
The split between Big Sean and Naya Rivera is already turning nasty -- with Naya accusing the rapper of stealing expensive jewelry from her house.
Sean's rep announced today that Sean had called off their engagement and wedding ... but insisted "recent rumors and accusations" had nothing to do with the breakup -- a reference to reports claiming he cheated.
Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... the cheating rumors are 100% false and that Sean actually made the decision to call of the wedding weeks ago. We're told he thought Naya was too controlling and too jealous of the women he worked with and met on tour.
The "Glee" star took to Twitter today to accuse BS of thievery ... claiming he stole a pricey Rolex watch from her. But sources tell us the watch was Sean's in the first place -- he bought it for himself when he became successful. We're told Sean gave it to Naya to wear ... but it was never hers to keep.
So, Big Sean leaves the relationship with his watch, his enormous member ... and their potential to attract new women.
This is gonna get messy.
Megan Fox has long claimed to be a self-described “nerd” but has unexpectedly upped the ante when it comes to her fan-girl obsession with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
“I was really in love with them,” confesses Fox, who stars as reporter April O’Neil in the live-action reboot of the ‘80s cartoon which hits theaters August 8. “I have an older sister that’s 12 years older than me, so part of it initially was because I wanted to be like my big sister. But, it’s a really cool project for me because it was a huge part of my childhood, and it’s always been.”
Her die-hard love of the characters – she even made husband Brian Austin Green watch the cheesy Turtle movies with her when they were dating – eliminated any hesitation about her decision to sign up for the film executive produced by Michael Bay.
“He was one of the most lovely people that I dealt with in making this movie,” says Fox of the Transformers director, with whom she had once publicly feuded. “I’ve always loved Michael. We’ve had our battles in the past but even when I’ve been really outspoken about difficulties we’ve had, I’ve always followed up by saying that I have a particular affinity to him. He can be very vulnerable, and he’s very likeable and loveable. I’ve always been very vocal about that as well. But, sometimes we clash because we both have very willful, powerful personalities.”
Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman had an edgy vision for the film that included a dramatic makeover for the four mutant turtles, now animated in CG. There are also plenty of dramatic action sequences and a few surprising contemporary details such as a complete makeover of Fox’s character, April. All of which, for the record, suit Fox just fine.
“She’s more of a leader when she explores her relationship with the turtles instead of just the human companion that gets dragged along on the adventure,” says Fox of her revamped character. “It’s more representative of a modern woman.”
Fox’s April also swaps her trademark yellow jumpsuit for a yellow leather jacket and skinny jeans. “I’m completely clothed for the entire movie,” says Fox, noting that may disappoint some fans. “There’s no gratuitous skin or sexual anything. Jonathan was really insistent on not wanting her to be sexualized or to take that sort of typical role we’ve seen women take in movies thus far, and that I’ve taken in particular.”
But don’t expect Fox to trade hot pants for head-to-toe gear from here on out. “I don’t really mind,” says Fox of her trademark pin-up appeal.“It’s actually a large part of my personality. I think you can be that and you can also be intelligent and strong. I don’t think they’re in opposition to one another – at least in my life.”
And that life now includes her two sons with Green, 15-month-old Noah and new arrival Bodhi Ransom. Being a mother, says Fox, definitely influences the types of film she takes on.
“I had just had Noah when I started taking meetings to see if this would work out for me,” explains Fox. “How cool is it to have a mom that plays either a superhero or plays the part of this iconic franchise that spans so many generations? I mean, hopefully they’ll both think I’m cool.”
With cartoon reboots Transformers and Turtles behind her, Fox says she’s looking forward to future projects. A third cartoon remake of her choice?
“Gundam Wing,” responds Fox, adding she’d love to see a Jurassic Park remake in the works. “Pacific Rim was sort of a Gundam Wing situation, but they should do it. What about Thundercats?”
Or maybe, she says, Sailor Moon.“That could feasibly be made into a live action movie,” mulls Fox. “I don’t know how many Americans were into that. I was into that, but I don’t know how huge it was here.”
“That’s not actually a bad idea.”
hmmmm her comments about Michael
Woody Allen is under fire for failing to have any black gangsters in his Broadway musical about legendary 1920s Harlem nightspot, the Cotton Club.
Allen insists he always casts regardless of race, but the New York Daily News cites a source as saying the quirky filmmaker specifically requested there be no African-American stars in his show.
'Bullets Over Broadway' is an adaption of Allen's 1994 screenplay of the same name and stars Zach Braff as the lead.
'Everyone's white at Woody’s Cotton Club and in the gangster numbers,' a Broadway insider told the Daily News' Confidential.
The source told the newspaper a big-name African-American actor was being considered but Woody pulled out, deciding for some reason that 'a black gangster wouldn't be good,' despite the play being set in Harlem.
The musical opens tonight, and contrasts starkly to another Broadway show based on the Cotton Club, called 'After Midnight.'
The iconic club was popular with black clubgoers, so casting reportedly told Allen a scene re-creating the nightspot would look strange without any.
The only actor in the entire show who isn't white is Kelcy Griffin, who is in the dance ensemble, the Daily News reports.
Allen, who has been criticized before for not featuring homosexuals in his movies, admits he had a heavy hand in producing the Broadway show.
Many of you may be wondering just exactly who Chad Future is, and some of you may already know. Chad Future (birth name David Lehre) is an American singer, producer, and entertainer completely inspired by Korean pop music!
Chad was met with a very unique opportunity in 2011, hosting the American Music Awards live pre-show alongside Dick Clark Productions. After doing so for two successful years in a row, and meeting a variety of top musicians from all around the world, Chad knew exactly what he was destined for.
His one main goal is simple: to bridge the gap between K-Pop and American music, and to become a successful American born K-Pop artist, promoting in America, Korea, and all around the world. Chad has already garnered much support from artists very well known, and has already collaborated with VIXX's Ravi, and NU'EST's Aron (song and music videos to be released later in April, stay tuned!)
To kick things off in the right direction, Chad's brand new special titled "I AM CHAD FUTURE" has premiered on Mnet America. Be sure to check it out as we patiently wait for Chad's upcoming releases!
It's really a longer look at the first scene in the original trailer, but hey we get to see more Star-Lord.
Disney Channel's Descendants has found Jafar's son.
Twilight star Booboo Stewart has been cast as Jay in the live-action original movie centered on a group of iconic Disney villains' teenage kids, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Descendants is set in a present-day idyllic kingdom, with the benevolent teenage son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle), Ben (Mitchell Hope), poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil (Carlos), Maleficent (Mal, played by Dove Cameron), the Evil Queen (Evvie) and Jafar (Jay, played by Stewart), who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with the other villains, sidekicks, evil stepmothers and stepsisters.
Kenny Ortega, who directed the hugely successful High School Musical franchise, will helm. Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott (The Starter Wife, Runaway Bride, Desperate Housewives) penned the script.
Descendants begins production in the spring for a 2015 bow.
Stewart, best known to audiences as Seth, a member of Jacob's pack in the Twilight movie franchise, also is a stuntman. He has a slew of projects in various stages, including a supporting role in X-Men: Days of Future Past. He is repped by TSC Entertainment.

She's 21, but Selena Gomez has just fired her mother and stepfather -- as her managers anyway.
Sources close to the singer tell TMZ, Selena axed her p-units Mandy and Brian Teefey last month, permanently relieving them of all duties related to the management of her career. Selena's parents had managed her since her big break at Disney.
We're told Selena feels she's outgrown her parents. She believes she's now old enough -- and famous enough -- to have a seasoned professional manager with other A-list clients.
Selena has argued plenty with her parents over the direction of her career -- not to mention over dating Justin Bieber -- but we're told family friction was NOT the reason for the split. We're told Selena remains close with both of her parents, although they're not happy about the decision.
As for who Selena wants to rep her, we're told she's still looking for the perfect candidate.
Paging Scooter Braun.
Do you fuck to this shit?
Synopsis: Disneynature's "Monkey Kingdom" spotlights the gripping reality of a newborn monkey and its mother, struggling to survive within the competitive social hierarchy of the Temple Troop, a dynamic group of monkeys who live in ancient ruins found deep in the storied jungles of South Asia, alongside a rich cast of forest characters. Life is grand, food is plentiful and safety is assured if you're lucky enough to be born on the higher rungs of the Troop's social ladder. But this young mother and her infant find themselves in a constant state of hunger, dodging threats from higher-ranking monkeys determined to keep them on their assigned rung. It'll take a lot of ingenuity, hard work -- and a little luck -- if this little family hopes to change their place in the world.

Now that everyone is dyeing their hair purple, pink, blue and green, Demi Lovato has to do something else to set her tresses apart. So she went back to brunette.
The star, who once told PEOPLE “I’m not going to follow any rule” when it comes to her hair, announced on Twitter Wednesday night that she was going back to her original chestnut brown shade. She set the announcement to a familiar tune. “Gonna give my hair a breeaaakkk, give my hair a break, gonna give my hair a break, my hair a break… Oh yeah, yeah…” she captioned the photo above, then shared another look at the new style (below). With her red nails and lips, she’d look almost conservative, if it weren’t for her recently-shaved patch of hair.
In the past few years, Lovato herself has gone from red to blonde to blue to pink, but her hair still looks as healthy as ever — something she credited to olive oil treatments and her naturally strong hair thanks to her Hispanic roots. But we bet she’s a little relieved to take it easy for a little while — that is, until she gets the urge to go chartreuse.
Demi Lovato Blasts "Ignorant F--ks" Over Mean Article About Beau Wilmer Valderrama
Demi Lovato is tweeting mad at a certain news site that recently published an unflattering article about her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama!
The 21-year-old singer shared a tweet yesterday that seems to be in response to a Daily Beast article titled, "Why Women Want Hollywood Lothario Wilmer Valderrama."
"@thedailybeast such a classy ‘news site' you are," Lovato wrote on Wednesday. "Writing horrible things about people you know NOTHING about. Get a LIFE you ignorant f--ks."
So what not-so-nice things is Lovato referencing?
Demi Lovato ✔ @ddlovato
@thedailybeast such a classy "news site" you are. Writing horrible things about people you know NOTHING about.
"Wilmer Valderrama's so culturally irrelevant, the commodification of his young girlfriend's body has nudged him and his playboy ways back into the current celebrity conversation," writes the Daily Beast blogger.
The writer then references the recent leaked bedroom photos of Lovato and Valderrama and suggests that his career could get a boost from the leak. They go on to call Valderrama's career "modest" at best and say he relies on dating beautiful Hollywood stars to stay relevant because his personality is lacking in appeal.
"Despite his obvious eccentricities and general aura of grossness, Wilmer Valderrama has somehow convinced a bunch of beautiful women to fall in love with him, and he doesn't show signs of stopping any time soon," they write.

Chris Colfer is adding a new title to his repertoire: sitcom guest star.
The Glee actor-singer-writer has signed on to appear in an episode of Hot in Cleveland, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Colfer (whose only previous non-Glee TV gig was a 2011 role on Fox’s The Cleveland Show) will play Tony, the son of Wendie Malick’s actress-character Victoria Chase.
The TV Land comedy kicked off its fifth season last month with a special live outing. Colfer’s episode shoots next week.
