Former pro-wrestler Dallas Diamond Page found himself back in the ring Wednesday night, this time, facing off against HLN's Nancy Grace. Grace held the WWE icon's feet to the fire on allegations that steroid use led to The Ultimate Warrior's death.
“Tonight, claims of drug use and steroids swirling!” Grace exclaimed. “Yeah, back in the day, we all used them all back in the day,” Page said.
“Whoa! Whoa whoa whoa, you know, we didn't all, I've never used a steroid!” Grace interjected. “I wouldn't know a steroid if it bit me in the neck!”
“I didn't mean all, I'll tell ya, I tried them back when I was a kid too,” Page said. “And it's something when left in your body you'll have some ramifications from that without question.”
Update: Page has tweeted regret about appearing on Nancy Grace's show: I went on Nancy Grace last night expecting to discuss Warrior the man. Had I known the only topic discussed would be steroids I would not have participated. At the time I was also unaware of the list that was shown to the viewing audience. To imply that all of the wrestlers on that list died from steroids was wrong and for that they owe the families an apology. Again, my only intention was to discuss Warrior the man and share some stories about how dedicated he was to the wrestling business. I am saddened that was not what happened and my thoughts remain with his family.
In her first appearance on the "Late Show With David Letterman" since leaving rehab, Lindsay Lohan commiserated with the host about sobriety, and prank-called the former child star's mentor Oprah Winfrey.
Letterman made a rare comment about his own struggles with alcohol, saying "I'm an alcoholic, I drank myself every night" and said to the actress, "It's so nice to have your control back, isn't it?"
Lohan nodded and said, "My life is in a good place."
The pair then talked about Winfrey, who produces "Lindsay," Lohan's OWN docuseries, and whom the actress sees as a mentor. At one point, Lohan asked, "Should we call Oprah?"
Letterman initially balked, but later relented after Lohan, 27, chanted "Op-rah! Op-rah!" and got the audience to chime in.
When Winfrey picked up, Letterman said in a high-pitched voice, "Yes, could I speak to Oprah Winfrey, please ?... Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan’s secretary."
After Winfrey asked, "Who is this?" Letterman quickly broke character and Winfrey laughed. "Oh, my God. Very good, Dave," she said. "The David Letterman who's retiring?"
The trio then bonded over Lohan's recovery and their mutual love of meditation.
Winfrey and Letterman, who announced last week that he'll retire in 2015, are now friendly after years of feuding. The two buried the hatchet during Winfrey’s 2005 appearance on "The Late Show."
Their disagreement originally began around 1989, after Winfrey appeared on Letterman's former NBC talk show. At the time, she said she thought that Letterman had turned the audience against her.
Avengers stars spotted on Hampshire set as Age of Ultron takes battle to Hawley Woods
Hawley Woods in Hampshire was transformed into an exciting movie set as the team behind the Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron, filmed scenes at the film-friendly location.
Thanks to gethampshire.co.uk we’ve been given a heads up as residents captured behind-the-scenes pictures of a winter battle scene set for the second Avengers film, Age of Ultron, which is due to be released next April.
You can see the set is complete with fake snow, massive tanks and a star that looks very much like Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow.
Proposals were put forward to Hart district Council by Assembled Productions II UK Ltd in February to use the land temporarily for filming, and plans were approved on March 17, report local paper Get Hampshire.
And although the application did not indicate which movie would be filmed, the plans did state that a ‘small defensive bunker’ would be constructed in the woods to aid the filming of scenes in which principle characters are engaged in fighting with opposing forces.
The film set was constructed in the woods from March 17 to April 2 and filming was due to take place until Tuesday (April 8), before the site is cleared from Wednesday (April 9) to Tuesday (April 15).
This is not the first time Hawley Woods and the surrounding countryside have been used for filming. The opening sequence of 2002’s Die Another Day was shot there in which the location was used to replicate North Korea. Johnny English Reborn was also shot nearby as well as 2005 movie Sahara.
The sequel to the 2012 Marvel superhero film is set to also star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Samuel L. Jackson as the Avengers, who reassemble to battle the sentient robot, known as Ultron, played by James Spader.
Johansson recently revealed that the sequel will also keep the 'exciting comic book aspect' that fans loved from the first film.
The new film is directed by Joss Whedon while Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen have also been announced as joining the star-studded cast.
* The Avengers: Age Of Ultron is released on May 1 2015.
Kris Jenner hasn't been shy about sharing photos of herself in a bikini, but she draws the line at nudity. Speaking with Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O on Thursday, April 10, the Kardashian matriarch, 58, dismissed reports that she's planning to pose naked for Playboy.
"Oh my god, no!" she exclaimed when asked about the rumored photo shoot. "I don't think anyone wants to see me without any clothes on."
Which is not to say the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is ashamed of her body. "I love to work out, and I love to feel like I'm in shape, and I like to feel good about myself," she said. "Like, last summer, I posted those bikini photos because I thought it was so inspirational for someone in their 50s to have some motivation and say, 'Wow, you know, anyone can at least try to put a bathing suit on.'"
The outspoken momager also shot down other rumors about her family, including the one about Bruce Jenner undergoing a sex change. "It's just, like, unbelievable that these blatant lies are printed and people are gullible," she said. Then, changing the subject, she added, "We just all got back from vacation and had a great time, and the family's great, and we're looking forward to Kim getting married, and the babies are doing well. We try to focus on the positive stuff and sort of laugh at the negative.
As for chatter that daughter Kim Kardashian and fiance Kanye West have had to put their wedding plans on hold because of a rule that says they have to live in France for 40 days before tying the knot? "Everything is on track," Jenner said of the couple, parents to daughter North, 9 months. "They actually have a place there."
Unfortunately, things aren't as sunny between daughter Khloe Kardashian and her estranged husband, Lamar Odom. "Khloe and Lamar are still apart. There's not really any change there that I know about or can report," Jenner said. "She's just hanging in there and doing her best."
One Direction fans might have trouble sleeping tonight - as the boyband's management have revealed that an announcement is due this week. But what is it?
Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures have set the release date for King Arthur for July 22, 2016. The project will be directed by Guy Ritchie.
The film, which will be released in 3D and 2D, is expected to be a big tentpole retelling of the famous King Arthur tale. Joby Harold wrote the script.
Ritchie, whose next project to hit theaters will be The Man from U.N.C.L.E., has been working on a King Arthur film with Warner Bros. since 2010. While it looked like that project had fallen by the wayside, it now seems that things are finally back on track.
The project currently has that July 2016 weekend to itself.
Jessica Alba‘s eco-friendly product line is booming — while her husband Cash Warren is fuming. Alba’s The Honest Company “has succeeded beyond her wildest dreams,” a source told Radar. “She’s stunned at projections that have the company’s sales coming close to nine figures soon — it could be as much as $100 million dollars gross!
But Alba’s success has come at a cost as it’s causing problems in her marriage to Warren, according to the source.
“He wasn’t very supportive when Jessica first came up with the idea, and even less so now,” the source said. “He’s been completely emasculated by this whole thing.”
Alba, 32, and Warren, 35, have been married since 2008 and raise two daughters — Honor, 5, and Haven, 2.
The Fantastic Four actress started The Honest Company out of her desire to create environmentally friendly, no-toxic products for children.
As she said on her company’s web site, “When I became a mom, I finally became the person I am, that I always should have been. It’s the most satisfying job in the world. But, it can also be overwhelming and confusing. I created The Honest Company to help moms and to give all children a better, safer start.”
Although the public has embraced her products, her husband Warren’s attitude has disappointed Alba, the source said. “She had wanted Cash to get involved with her company in a formal way, as a Chief Operating Officer or President. But he’s always refused as he sees it as giving up on his modest producing career. Cash wants to have success of his own and not be seen as Mr. Jessica Alba.
“Jessica’s business prowess is causing severe strain in her marriage.”
feminist icon. Hopefully everyone calling her irrelevant will now see the error of their ways.
A conflicted hero is the person at the center of Fox’s newest drama, Gang Related — and, naturally, he also graces the show’s just-released poster.
Ramon Rodriguez stars as Det. Ryan Lopez, a rising star whose ties to the gang world of Los Angeles go much deeper than those who work with him in the elite gang task force know. “Ryan is an orphan who is taken in by this respected man in the neighborhood named Javier, and Javier happens to run a gang,” Rodriguez says in the exclusive sneak peek below. “So he sends Ryan also to the LAPD after he finished with the military.”
Rodriguez and his co-stars preview more of Ryan’s torn loyalties and their characters in the feature below:

Brie Larson (Short Term 12) is set to star as Ma in the adaptation of Emma Donoghue‘s 2010 best-seller Room about a kidnapped woman living in captivity with her 5-year-old son. Donoghue wrote the script for director Lenny Abrahamson (What Richard Did, Frank). Lisa Schwarzbaum gave the book an A- and wrote: “Though the story’s chilling circumstances reflect the horrors endured by tabloid-famous abductees, Donoghue avoids all sensationalism. Instead, she gracefully distills what it means to be a mother — and what it’s like for a child whose entire world measures just 11 x 11.”
This book is amazing and I'm really not sure how it'll work as a film, as it's from Jack's POV, but Brie is great and I'm way relieved that the author wrote the script herself.
Merlin star Colin Morgan has landed a lead role in the second series of award-winning BBC drama The Fall opposite Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan.
The 28-year-old has millions of fans and won a National TV Award last year for his portrayal of Merlin in the primetime BBC1 series.
Now he is heading to Belfast to play DS Tom Anderson, an officer involved in the hunt for serial killer Paul Spector, played by Jamie Dornan.
Colin said: “I’m delighted to be joining the cast of The Fall for what is going to be an exciting and gripping second series. Allan Cubitt has written exceptional material and I feel very privileged to be working with him and the very talented cast.”
Crime thriller The Fall aired on BBC2 last May and was a critical success and well as wowing over 3.5 million viewers. It was the channel’s biggest drama launch in eight years.
Starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan, it is a gripping psychological thriller that forensically examines the lives of a serial killer and a ruthless policewoman who will stop at nothing to get to the top.
Serial killer Spector stalks his victims at random in and around Belfast whilst talented female Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson is on secondment from the MET and is brought in to catch him.
The story in the second series picks up immediately from where series one left off, with Gibson in pursuit of Spector.
A personal link from Spector’s past opens up some clues for Gibson but provokes Spector in way that threatens to jeopardise the whole investigation.
Gibson is forced to take ever greater risks but the closer she comes to capturing him, the more Spector trespasses into her private world, delighting in taunting and provoking her.
As the net gradually tightens around him he becomes psychologically ever more dangerous and destructive.
On her return to the role, Gillian Anderson said: “I’m over the moon to be back in production with this team again and to step into the shoes of the elusive Stella for what promises to be an even darker second season.”
On his return to the role of Spector, Jamie Dornan said: “I’m delighted to be back in production for the second series of The Fall. Allan Cubitt has outdone himself, and the scripts are stunning.”
Colin’s arrival follows exciting news this week that The Fall has received two BAFTA nominations for series one. The Fall has been nominated for ‘Best Mini Series’ and Jamie Dornan is in the running for the coveted title of ‘Leading Actor’.
The second series of The Fall is expected to air at the end of 2014.
Get it, bb
Until he was 37, Cheyenne had what he considered 'a pristine reputation.'
He was known mainly for his work on Broadway (Xanadu), television (30 Rock) and film (United 93) and had been with the same man for a decade before marrying him in 2010.
Tt all changed in the summer of 2012. He split from husband Monte Lapka, shaved his head and got a crazy tattoo. It also became public that he was in a 12-Step program.
You know its funny, for so long I was seen as the all American blue-eyed sweet boy — that had been my image. I’m going to be 39 and up until 37 I had such a pristine reputation. And really, nobody is perfect. Because I was good at managing it so carefully, no one even knew that I had struggled with drugs and alcohol for 20 years.
Then someone leaked that I was in a 12-Step program and that I had grown a crazy mustache, shaved my head, which I had done for a role and that I had gotten a couple of tattoos…it’s funny, I still feel the need to justify.
No one had really ever said anything bad about me and that was the hardest thing. With everything that has happened over the last year and a half, all of the stuff in the press, I kind of got raked over the coals. As much as I like to pretend that it doesn’t matter, it did. I’m just like everybody else; of course I want you to like me.
I am amazed how quickly the press can turn on you. It’s especially true of the gay press at times.
Don’t get me wrong; the LGBT press has been incredibly supportive over the years. It’s just been a few snarky blogs that I have had to stay away from. Mostly because of how much it hurt my family; they have been really affected by it at times. I guess it’s like RuPaul shared with me, ‘Your opinion of me is none of my business.’”
– Talented entertainer Cheyenne Jackson referring to his sometimes unflattering portrayal on “snarky gay blogs” in an interview with Rage Monthly
What would have been a pretty standard theater experience was suddenly interrupted ahead of the trailers, when a group of young men in black slacks and white dress shirts came in and made an unexpected announcement. They told us they would like each of us to participate in a survey concerning Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier. At first, I thought this might be those mysterious Cinema Scores we've referenced so often. But these men made it clear they were from Marvel Studios. With friendly smiles they offered a 2-page survey and a tiny pencil, the kind you get at miniature golf courses. But what did they want to know?
As you can see, they begin with simple demographic questions, like age, gender, race (at bottom of page 1) and whether or not you brought kids with you. Next came basic marketing questions about what sold me on seeing Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier. (Internet/Online Blogs, obviously!) Then they go more into depth, asking what about Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier's marketing campaign most appealed to me as a moviegoer. And of course, what Captain America merch do I spend my moneys on?
Page 2 was supposed to be answered after we watched the film. These questions focused on how our expectations were met and if we'd recommend the movie to others (and other demographics). From there, Marvel wanted to know what impressed viewers most about Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier and how we'd describe it to our friends. Following that are more questions on merchandizing and marketing for this movie as well as for other Disney properties, Maleficent and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Most curious of all these questions though is section 29, asking which Marvel movies you'd be interested in seeing. Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant Man, Thor 3 and Captain America are already in the works. But Iron Man 4 is a bit of a surprise as there has been a bunch of back and forth over Downey's future in the franchise. We've previously expounded on why Iron Man 4 would never be, but since then the possibility re-emerged with the Mandarin One-Shot seemingly setting it up. Could this survey mean Iron Man 4 is go? Or is Marvel gaging interest before green lighting another massive production? My guess is the former. After all, Iron Man 3 made $1.2 billion worldwide. If they have Downey on contract again, why not roll the dice one more time?
From a business perspective, this survey makes sense. But is it hedging Marvel in creatively? Shouldn't they be leading the charge on projects they believe in?
What's most shocking to me is an omitted question. Why is there no entry for a Black Widow movie? Sure, there's a couple of questions about whether or not her involvement in Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier spurred audiences to see it. But on a survey targeted specifically at those who went to see a Marvel movie opening day, there's not even the suggestion that a Black Widow movie is in the works. Still, I'm hopeful that Natasha Romanoff will have her day as the lead hero. After all, they gave her a ton of setup in this movie.
Iron Man 3 co-writer and director Shane Black – and friend of Robert Downey Jr. – has hinted that he believed the actor would come back to do Iron Man 4 and 5 one day. Another Iron Man movie will be made eventually. And again, it’s a matter of when and with whom. According to an interesting survey handed out by Marvel Studios representatives at certain public screenings of Captain America: The Winter Soldier over the last few days, it could be sooner than we think.
We can only guess that Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t on there because it’s releasing this year as well, but it’s interesting to see Iron Man 4 listed among the given followups (and new property Ant-Man) we know are coming. Captain America 3 of course, just had its release date officially confirmed for May 6, 2016, in response to its successful opening weekend and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and directors Anthony and Joe Russo, were already signed to return and are breaking its story. Thor 3 doesn’t have a release date yet but it’s a relatively safe bet to release in May 2017 and already has writers in Craig Kyle (Thor: Tales of Asgard) and Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World). Or is it? For Phases 1 and 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor solo adventures released before the Captain America titles, but we can now confirm that’s no longer the case come Phase 3. Since Thor 3 has yet to lock down a date, it’s possible it doesn’t come until after The Avengers 3, although the delay in confirmation may have to do with the studio finding the right director for the project since Alan Taylor likely won’t return.
A Thor three-quel in 2017 puts into question whether or not Guardians of the Galaxy gets a direct sequel in the next phase. Some rumors claim GOTG is a one-off that could launch spinoffs, so the cosmic-based property adds an interesting spin to the speculation game of what Marvel is going to do next and what they have on that roadmap of films planned until 2028.
What we do know on the Phase 3 front is that each year there are two movies releasing and the first movie of each pair will be a sequel to an established property, with a new IP coming second. That’s why we’re getting Guardians of the Galaxy this year, Ant-Man the following year and in 2017-18 we’re likely getting Doctor Strange (according to Feige’s hinted timeline). As for the unannounced new property (or properties) in between, the common title that continues to surface is The Inhumans, with there being rumors of Black Panther, Ms. Marvel and another Hulk standalone feature as well. I’d love to see Nova in there since that could serve as a quasi-sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy that bridges it to the familiar Earth-based characters, and it gives Marvel room to essentially deliver Cap, Thor and GOTG followups in Phase 3 while still counting one of them as a “new’ property.
And what we know about future Iron Man films is that it comes down to delivering a unique and interesting story for Tony Stark, one that’s worthy of Robert Downey’s full-time involvement. With The Avengers movies, it’s easier for RDJ since there are more action scenes, and therefore less of him required on set thanks to his CGI armor doing all the work. Jeremy Renner barely ever saw him during production of The Avengers, as an example. With each Iron Man appearance, there also comes the need to introduce more armor suits, and it’s difficult to top there being dozens of them in Iron Man 3 and the biggest one of all being introduced in Age of Ultron. Yes, we’re finally going to see the infamous Hulkbuster armor.
How do you top that in merchandising the Ironclad Avenger? Maybe send him to space to meet up with the Guardians of the Galaxy just like he did in the modern Marvel NOW! books (see: Iron Man goes to space rumors). That, or Stark can become the director of a new and improved S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, which might fit nicely based on the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Despite uncertainty from cast members Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle, Marvel Studios is definitely thinking about Iron Man 4, but if it’s coming, it won’t be until after The Avengers 3. Will RDJ stick with the character through “Phase 4″ or will Marvel Studios need to recast? Could War Machine be put front and center? What about the other key characters whose contracts run out by The Avengers 3 (Chris Evans & Chris Hemsworth)?
Here we are in prom season again, and there's a delicious scent in the air. But this time it's not fragrant flowers. It's fried chicken.
Enter KFC, who is encouraging prom-goers to adorn their wrists with fried chicken before heading to the big dance and twerking all up on each other, which I assume is what the kids are doing these days.
You can actually order one for $20 (sorry, limit of 100). You get a lovely corsage for your date and a $5 gift card to go and buy the chicken yourself.
A note from the florist, Nanz and Kraft:
"Chicken not included (duh.). Each corsage kit includes a $5 KFC gift check, so you can customize your corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Whichever best matches her dress. Local corsages will have fresh baby's breath and out-of-town corsages will have silk baby's breath."
Nancy Grace's interview with Diamond Dallas Page, a veteran wrestler from Point Pleasant, about the death of The Ultimate Warrior, has wrestling fans crying foul. (YouTube)
Outraged enough to get #CancelNancyGrace trending on Twitter today, some wrestling fans are none too happy with the HLN host.
Why? Last night Grace interviewed Diamond Dallas Page, a professional wrestler who hails from New Jersey, about the death of The Ultimate Warrior this week.
Page — born Page Joseph Falkinburg — is from Point Pleasant — presides over a yoga empire and now lives in Atlanta.
The Ultimate Warrior, born James Brian Hellwig, died suddenly on Tuesday at 54. Though his cause of death has not been determined, Grace, in talking about wrestlers who have died at a young age, seemed to target her questions specifically toward steroid use among wrestlers.
"He looked great but you don't always know what's going on on the inside," said Page, 58, having just seen the late wrestler at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony, calling him "an intense cat" who was in great shape.
If he was in such great shape, why was he found dead, Grace asked.
"The last thing I am is a doctor, Nancy," Page answered.
"He's admitted that he used steroids," Grace pressed.
"Yeah, back in the day, we all used them back in the day," Page said.
"Whooooa," Grace bellowed. "Now we didn't all — I never used a steroid. I wouldn't know a steroid if it bit me in the neck."
There's now a related petition on change.org to CNN — parent network of HLN — calling for Grace's job.
"I went on Nancy Grace last night expecting to discuss Warrior the man," Page (@RealDDP) tweeted today. "Had I known the only topic discussed would be steroids I would not have participated," he said. "At the time I was also unaware of the list that was shown to the viewing audience."
Thank u for ur support. I went on last night to talk about good times..Didnt get to as I was in the HOTseat. Only RESPECT 4 @UltimateWarrior— Diamond Dallas Page (@RealDDP) April 10, 2014
He was referring to a list of wrestlers who died young that was displayed on screen as he and Grace talked. "To imply that all of the wrestlers on that list died from steroids was wrong and for that they owe the families an apology," Page continued. "Again, my only intention was to discuss Warrior the man and share some stories about how dedicated he was to the wrestling business. I am saddened that was not what happened and my thoughts remain with his family."

On Friday, fans of Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister on the HBO hit show “Game of Thrones,” joined the Reddit community to host an AMA. For those who don’t know what an AMA is, it is something that gives fans the opportunity to approach their favorite celebrities and ask them any questions that may be on their mind.
As soon as Dinklage began taking the fan questions, there was an overwhelming response, and some excellent responses that give us a better understanding of the acting star.
Since the questions covered a variety of topics, we have sorted through all of the responses to select some of the most fascinating and entertaining questions and responses from Dinklage and his fans.
You can check them out below.
Question: I’m wondering what life has been like at each filming location. I know you probably don’t get much time off-set to enjoy the surroundings, but how has it been shooting in Croatia/Ireland/wherever else you’ve shot?
Dinklage: Croatia’s one of the most beautiful places. We’re in Dubrovnik and we work 6 days a week, so we don’t have a lot of time off. But on our days off we just rent a boat and cruise around the islands. We go swimming, snorkeling… it’s just the most relaxed place in the world to be. I’d love to go back there one day on holiday.
The best part is that at the end of the work day, since it’s very hot there and we’re in these hot costumes — heavy leather and armor — some of us rip off our clothes and just jump right into the sea. Well, not all of our clothes. You know what I mean. But it’s invigoratingly cold, and always a joy.
Question: Hi Mr Dinklage, BIG fan here. I wonder how the theater and Indie films have made you a better actor?
Dinklage:I always go back to indie movies, and especially the chance to work with friends of mine like Alex. It’s one of the best working experiences of my career. He’s a true collaborator and I highly recommend people donating to his Kickstarter project for Little Feet.
Question: I’ve heard that you and Lena Headey are good friends outside of acting together. Due to the intensity of Cersei and Tyrion’s relationship, and the wicked gut slashing dialogue between the two, do either of you need to do anything to get into that mindset of mutual hatred? Or do you just have a smashing good time playing with the characters’ relationship? Whatever you guys do, I love the chemistry you share and the Cersei/Tyrion one-liner exchanges are some of the most underrated parts of the show.
Dinklage: Sometimes we have to avoid eye contact so we don’t crack up!! It’s funny that sometimes people think with these serious scenes, people think the mood on set is very serious, but sometimes the most serious scenes can produce the most laughter on set.
I miss working with Lena. We didn’t have as much as I’m used to this year. In the second season we had a lot of scenes together.
Question: My question is what has been your favourite interaction with a fan that has come from your work on Game of Thrones, or any of your other work? The fanbase is pretty insatiable, and I can imagine you’ve had a ton of crazy ones.
Dinklage: I’ve met some people who have dogs named Tyrion. And met a woman who had children named Arya and Sansa!
But for the most part the fans are just super enthusiastic and really helpful to me because they’re just so much more knowledgeable about the material than I am, they’ve read the books, they’ve researched everything, they know all the lineages of these characters, so every time they want to talk it’s really helpful to me. Nothing really stands out as a peculiarity but they’re completely sweet and very good-natured. I don’t know… They like to play dress up!
Question: What is the best advice ever given to you?
Dinklage:Hmm… I know the worst advice ever given to me was “do it right”. As an actor you don’t really know what to do without that bit of direction.
The best of advice, I love a quote from Steven Soderbergh. I read some advice he gave in an interview: Perseverance + talent= luck. There’s no such thing as pure luck, you just have to persevere and hopefully you have a modicum of talent. I love that quote, I think it really says it all.
Question: Hey Mr. Dinklage, do you have any hilarious behind the scenes stories about Game of Thrones?
Dinklage: There was one scene I was doing with Jerome Flynn, who plays Bronn. It was in season 1 I think, when I say something to a crazy woodsman guy. He asks “How do you want to die?” and the line in the script was like, “At the age of 80 with wine in my belly and a girl’s mouth around my cock.” And I said… “Age of 80 and a girl’s cock around my mouth!” I inverted a couple of the words, and when I said that my friend Jerome couldn’t stop laughing, so we had to stop filming for the day.
Question: Hey Peter, what character in film or literature would you play most like to portray?
Dinklage: Great question. I have a huge soft spot in my heart for Atticus Finch. It’s so hard to say something like that, though. I don’t see myself in the role since Gregory Peck did such a good job with it already.
Question: How was it working with Will Ferrell on Elf?
Dinklage:It was great. This was quite a number of years ago as well. I didn’t get to spend too much time with him, just a couple of days. But he was very kind and much quieter than I thought he would be given that I only knew him from Saturday Night Live at that point. This was his first big film I think. But it was a lot of fun.
Sadly I had to beat him up. Well, or at least his stunt man half the time.
Question: Peter! I love your hair! What’s the secret? Do you use and specific product?
Dinklage:It’s called not owning a brush. Or a comb. That’s my secret. Just don’t buy a comb.
Question: How much does it suck being so well known and living in NYC? Do you ever have any privacy?
Dinklage: Yeah, I mean, it’s a little tricky. I’m sort of a private person and people are very well-meaning, but the one thing that sort of gets to you are the cameras/cellphones. People try to be sneaky and try to get your picture without coming up to you or asking, and that’s what kind of gets to me.
I don’t even know why they do that, isn’t the joy of meeting somebody better than taking a picture from down the street? I’ve seen every combination too, some people will even send their kids over to ask for directions, haha! But for the most part people are very nice and I’m not moving out of NY just because of that at this point. It’s just important to me to feel safe and keep my family safe as well.

If you want to know what kind of year 2013 was for Latin pop, tune into the Billboard Latin Music Awards April 24 on Telemundo. Judging by the top nominees, it was a year dominated by well-established stars rather than by up-and-comers.
Bachata superstar Romeo Santos leads the pack with 17 nominations - an impressive feat considering that most of his nods are for the single Propuesta Indecente, not his recent album Formula Vol. 2, released after the nomination period.
That's followed closely by Prince Royce's 16 nominations and Marc Anthony's 15. Santos, Royce and Anthony are also competing for the Artist of the Year award with late superstar Jenni Rivera.
"We see many known names among the finalists because we're seeing a trend of not many new artists breaking through," says Leila Cobo, Billboard's executive director of latin music.
Other noticeable trends at this year's awards are the almost complete absence of reggaeton artists among the finalists and the continued rise of regional Mexican music. "The regional Mexican music market has more artists breaking through on a regular basis than any other genres,".
Both trends are evident in the New Artist of the Year award, disputed among regional Mexican acts Código FN, Luis Coronel, Roberto Junior y Su Bandeño, and Bronx-born bachata singer Leslie Grace.
Before he possibly jumps back into the technology world with a Christian Bale-led Steve Jobs biopic, David Fincher is hard at work at another dark crime adaptation of a hit novel. Coming in October is his take on Gillian Flynn‘s mystery thriller Gone Girl, which follows Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, a husband whose wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), mysteriously disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.
As promised, the first trailer will be arriving on Monday, but ahead of that preview, we’ve got the first footage. Unfortunately butchered by Entertainment Tonight voice-over and their haphazard editing, it still gives us an enticing look at a handful of scenes from the highly anticipated project. With a cast also featuring Tyler Perry as Tanner Bolt, the attorney of Affleck’s character, and Neil Patrick Harris in the role of Amy Dunne’s ex-boyfriend, Desi Collins.
Gone Girl, which has a new third act, also stars Missi Pyle, Patrick Fugit, Casey Wilson and Emily Ratajkowski, and hits theaters on October 3rd.

Unless you live under a rock or hate wonderful things, you’ve probably seen Iggy Azalea’s video for her single “Fancy,” a spot-on, three-and-a-half minute homage to iconic ’90s film “Clueless.”
An important part of the video’s accuracy was the inclusion of Cher Horowitz’s all-important, wardrobe-organizing computer program which, it turns out, also included a product placement for e-commerce site Revolve Clothing (see below). It’s no coincidence, then, that Azalea has just been revealed as the site’s new campaign star.
The rapper follows in the footsteps of Emily Ratajowski as celebrity face of the brand, which Revolve will switch up every season, according to WWD. In Azalea, it sounds like the retailer is getting much more than just a model. She’ll be featured in online content on Revolve and Revolve will sell her tour merchandise and downloads of her forthcoming album, “The New Classic,” due out April 22.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen Azalea in a fashion context — she’s a front row regular at fashion week and has covered numerous fashion glossies — nor is it her first campaign. She starred in one for Levi’s and fronted Henry Holland’s eyewear campaign, both in 2012. If she continues to build on the fashion momentum she’s already created, they likely won’t be her last.
Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is set to release her debut album “The New Classic“, and gives up and coming musicians, like herself, some advice. Pre-order the album now here.
So what’s your plan for your appearance on Good Morning America on April 22?
It will be weird. I can guarantee you that. My approach that I’ve had this round for live performances on TV is to create vignettes of the ["Fancy"] video, because it’s something people can at least relate to visually. If they can’t sonically relate to the song, then what can be familiar to the person watching? So I think doing the vignette of the video for each performance is a cool way to do it. It gives them something to associate with. Like, “Remember this video you saw? Here it is live!” Plus people recognize Clueless, so that gives them another thing to hold on to.
