Laura Kaeppeler: the new Miss America 2012


Miss America 2012
Miss Wisconsin 2011 Laura Kaeppeler, one of 53 Miss America pageant queens, becomes the Miss America 2012. A panel of seven judges was set to pick the Miss America on Saturday night during a live telecast on ABC, the culmination of a week of preliminary competitions and months of preparations for the titleholders from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Miss Winkinson 2011
"There are many of you out there — and I was one of them — but it doesn't have to define you," Kaeppeler told The Associated Press after winning the crown and $50,000 scholarship on Saturday night. To win, she said beauty queens and politicians should remember they represent all Americans, sang an opera song and strutted in a white bikini and black evening gown.

Her looks, smarts and personal vocation impressed a panel of seven celebrity judges enough to give her the next year with the title. Miss Oklahoma Betty Thompson came in second, while Miss New York Kaitlyn Monte placed third.

Kaeppeler, 23, replaces Teresa Scanlan of Nebraska, who won last year at age 17 and plans to use her scholarship to pay for law school. As the new Miss America, Kaeppeler will spend the next year touring the country to speak to different groups and raising money for the Children's Miracle Network, the Miss America Organization's official charity. She now says she intends to use the scholarship money to pursue a law degree and become a family attorney who specializes in helping children of incarcerated adults.



 

Kety Perry willing to finish present divorce before dating again


Kety Perry is not dating until her divoce from British comedian Russell Brand is finished. After split he has filed papers to end their marriage late last year. Over the last week there have been rumours Katy’s mother and father Mary and Keith Hudson have encouraged her to move on. There was speculation Mary hoped her daughter would begin a romance with American football star Tim Tebow, but it’s thought that is untrue.

“Mary told me she never said anything of the sort. I don’t think either of Katy’s parents have even met Tebow,” friend of the family Pastor Paul Endrei told British newspaper The Sunday Mirror. “There is no way that she will start dating again until her divorce is finalized.”

Katy’s parents have been spending time with her over the last week as she tries to come to terms with her marriage breakdown. “Keith and Mary flew from Georgia to Los Angeles earlier this week to be with their daughter. She is doing OK under the ¬circumstances, but this has been a very tough road for her,” a friend added. “Keith and Mary have also been reaching out to Russell and sent him a text telling him he is in their thoughts and that they love him.”

Russell has jetted from London back to Los Angeles where he will meet with Katy. It will be the first time the two have come face-to-face since they announced their separation after 14 months of marriage. The pair are thought to be planning to discuss the terms of their split, although Katy is reported to be hoping they might still reconcile.

“He has agreed to meet her one last time. He wants to sort things out and finalise the divorce,” a friend explained to the publication. “Removal trucks have been moving his things out of the house they lived in and into a new place that Russell is renting. “He needed to be in LA for the Globes [Golden Globe Awards tonight] too, so it was an ideal opportunity to meet. He is determined to move on. But Katy says she is still in love with him and she still has hopes they might get back together.”

She is now trying to cover her wounds of her failed 14-month marriage by coloring her hair which she debuted Thursday in Santa Barbara, Calif. during a shoot for an Adidas ad.

Heather Locklear was taken to emegency as a result of 911 call


Famous TV show "Dynasty" 1981-1989 star Heather Locklear was hospitalized on emergency Thursday afternoon, Jan 12 after police responded to a frantic 911 call by her older sister. Paramedics and sheriff's deputies responded to the actress's Los Angeles area home around 2 p.m. and determined Locklear needed further medical attention Locklear, 50, was then taken by ambulance to the Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where she stayed overnight and is now said to be resting comfortably, with family by her side.

"She is in no danger and she's going to be just fine," her parents Bill and Diane Locklear said in a statement issued by the hospital. Los Robles spokesperson Kris Carraway-Bowman told People magazine the actress arrived at 2:30 p.m. and by 8 p.m. was sleeping.

Neither the hospital nor Locklear's family are releasing information on what caused her hospitalization, but RadarOnline reports she may have mixed alcohol and prescription medication. She was rehaved two times, once for depression and once for prescription medication.

Depression over the break up from the longtime boyfriend, and former co-star, Jack Wagner in November also can cause physical hazzard. Locklear was previously married to Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, whom she divorced in 2006. Two years after her divorce from Sambora, in 2008, Locklear was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription medication.  She pleaded no contest to reckless driving. Two years after that, in 2010, Locklear was cited with a misdemeanor charge for a hit-and-run accident in which she ran her car into a street sign.



Bacon and Sausage: adds taste but increase risk of cancer.


If you eat two slices of bacon — or one sausage — a day can increase a the risk of developing pancreatic cancer in your body is by 19 percent, a study out of Sweden has found.

Pancreatic cancer kills 80 percent of people in under a year of being diagnosed; only 5 percent of patients are still alive after five years, according to The Guardian. Eating 1.8 ounces of processed meat every day — the equivalent to one sausage or two rashers of bacon — increases the risk by 19 percent, and the risk goes up if a person eats more, the paper cites experts from the "respected" Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, as saying.

The findings after examining data from 11 studies, including 6,643 cases of pancreatic cancer, were published in the British Journal of Cancer. "Pancreatic cancer has poor survival rates," the Daily Mail quoted Susanna Larsson from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm as saying. "So it's important to understand what can increase the risk of this disease."

Fox News cited experts as saying the overall risk of pancreatic cancer was relatively low. Most people have only a 1.4 percent chance of getting pancreatic cancer, reported Dr. Richard Besser, ABC News's senior health and medical editor.  “If you have a serving of processed meat per day, your risk would go up to 1.7 percent; still very small.”

It is dubbed "the silent killer," as it often does not produce symptoms — such as back pain, loss of appetite and weight loss — in the early stages, according to ANI, which adds that: Little is known about its causes other than that smoking, excess alcohol and being overweight all seem to contribute.

The risk posed by eating meat was substantially lower than for smoking, found to increase the likelihood of pancreatic cancer by 74 percent, according to the reports. Meanwhile, ordinary red meat, like steak, reportedly increases a man’s chance of getting the cancer, but not a woman’s.

Laura Prepon playing in new NBC sitcom "Are You There, Chelsea?"


Former "That '70s Show" actress Laura Prepon stars a 20-something Chelsea Handler in the new show, NBC's new sitcom, "Are You There, Chelsea?," while Handler herself plays her older sister Sloane. NBC's entertainment chief insists that it wasn't squeamishness over booze that got "vodka" dropped from the television version of Chelsea Handler's memoir.

Prepon stopped by "Live! With Kelly" (weekdays on ABC) to talk about the inherent weirdness of the show's casting. Prepon told Kelly Ripa and her guest co-host, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, that Handler explained the casting by saying, "I'm sick of being myself. You do it." The sitcom premieres on Wednesday Jan. 11 at 8:30 p.m. EST on NBC.

Edwards asked Prepon if part of preparing for the role included brushing up on her boozing skills, since the show is based on Handler's book, "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea." Although Prepon said "No," she did say that Handler gave her a case of Belvedere Vodka to prepare for the task ahead.

Prepon added that in addition to copious amounts of drinking on the show, "Chelsea is very open about certain experiences she has with the gentlemen folk." "I've heard that about her," Edwards said, putting himself in the same category as anyone who's ever watched an episode of "Chelsea Lately."

Jenelle Evans, "The Teen Mom 2" star, in police custody for harrassing roommate.


MTV Reality television series 2011 "The Teen Mom 2" star was taken into custody Tuesday morning in Brunswick County for allegedly making "harassing phone calls" and "communicating threats" to her old roommate Hannah Inman, E! News reported, but Evans is denying the accusations. 

"Yes I was arrested again. It's okay, Hannah's just calling her own bluffs. How can I harass you with phone calls when you clearly don't own a cell phone? I've dropped this argument weeks ago. Haven't been paying attention to you but you have the balls to tell your little 'fans'.. 'I'mma f--king kill that bitch'?! [Who's] threatening who here?! Lmao. She's mad because I took out charges first on [James Duffy] for cyber stalking," Evans wrote on her Facebook Fanpage. 

"Not to mention I REALLY don't give a f--k about Hannah or Duffy when I've been in and out of the hospital for three weeks now with mono/strep and have to get my tonsils out. Yeah as I'm about to walk out the door to go to the hospital the cop is at my door and I got down on my knees and poured out tears. I was so upset. I had to go to jail THEN go to the hospital. I feel like sh-t, would greatly appreciate it if everyone would drop it. K?! Thxxxx!" 

Evans with her former roommate in the middle
Evans posted a $1,000 bond and then was able to leave jail, writing on her Twitter account afterwards, "I'm as free as a biiirrrrddddd :D." 

According to the Teen Mom 2 star's attorney Dustin Sullivan, "Yes, Jenelle was charged with those charges [Tuesday] after she had taken charges out on James Duffy several days ago. Obviously, I feel that these charges against Jenelle are completely absurd and retaliatory in nature," E! News reported. 

Evans was previously arrested for an October 2010 incident in which she and ex-boyfriend Keiffer Delp allegedly broke into an abandoned North Carolina house to smoke pot. She pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia in April 2011 as part of a plea agreement in which two additional charges that had been pending against her -- breaking and entering and possession of marijuana -- were dropped. 

Evans was also arrested in March 2011 for assault after she brutally attacked another girl. Police reportedly launched an investigation after a video of the fight had surfaced online.

Hope to see the smile again


Freestyle skier Canadian Olympic hopeful Sarah Burke was severely injured in an accident on Jan. 10 crashing herself on a half-pipe course training ramp in Park City, Utah. An update on her condition on Jan. 11 revealed that she is in an induced coma. Although the details of her injuries have not been made public, the medically induced coma indicates that there may be a brain injury.

Sarah Burke is a freestyle skier who has won several medals during her career. Burke won the FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships gold medal in 2005 and has won the gold medal at the X Games four times. She fought for the inclusion of the superpipe in the 2014 Olympic Games. On Jan. 10, Sarah Burke was transferred to the University of Utah hospital after sustaining an accident at the Park City Mountain Resort. The information on her accident has been limited, but she was training while it occurred and hurt her head during a fall.

Burke's family has asked friends and fans to show their support on her official Facebook page. Sarah's page has been inundated with messages of love and grief. Fans from around the globe are beginning to flock to her Facebook page and leave statements for Sarah Burke.

"What I've heard, relatively directly, is that she landed a trick down in the bottom end of the pipe, and kind of bounced, from her feet to her head," Judge told the Toronto Globe and Mail. "It wasn't anything that looked like a catastrophic fall, so I'm a bit mystified."

Cup cakes, an attractive and tasty food for all


Cupcake, a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper or aluminum cup: Where did they come from? The first mention of the cupcake can be traced as far back as 1796, when a recipe notation of "a cake to be baked in small cups" was written in American Cookery by Amelia Simms. The earliest documentation of the term cupcake was in “Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats” in 1828 in Eliza Leslie's Receipts cookbook. In the early 19th century, there were two different uses for the name cup cake or cupcake.

There are two possible theories are circulating in the food world.  Both theories are based on cupcake recipes found in cookbooks from eras long ago. 

The first theory is that cake batter was cooked in teacups and other small containers since it took such a long time to cook cakes in hearth ovens.  The small teacups cut the cooking time of cakes dramatically. The second theory is based on how the ingredients in the cupcake recipes were measured. (1 cup flour, 2 cups sugar, etc.)

Hyundai Elantra: the winner of the car of the year in International Auto Show.


Hyundai Elantra, The Car of the year 2012
The Hyundai Elantra wins the 2012 North American Car of the Year award. The Range Rover Evoque won the 2012 North American Truck of the Year award beating the BMW X3 and Honda CR-V. The awards was announced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Monday, Jan. 9, 2012. It is Hyundai’s second win. The Hyundai Genesis was named North American Car of the Year in 2009.

“Elantra speaks to the success of our recipe of bold design and great fuel economy,” said John Krafcik, president and chief executive officer, Hyundai Motor America. “In a year with some truly breakthrough competitors, we are honored that the jury recognizes Elantra’s far-reaching impact on the industry.”

Fifty automotive journalists voted on the winning vehicles from a group of finalists, and the vehicles must be all new or substantially changed to be eligible. Organizers accept no advertising, though automakers capitalize on the marketing value of the honors. John Krafcik, Hyundai's North American CEO, said the award won't help the compact's sales much because the company already is selling as many Elantras as it can make at its factory in Montgomery, Ala. But the award should help solidify the brand's image in the eyes of the American public, especially in the highly competitive compact car segment.

"It should be helpful for our brand going forward," he said. The Elantra, which starts at $16,445, gets an estimated 33 mpg. The company is looking at ways to boost production at the Montgomery plant, but Krafcik said Hyundai plans to focus on maintaining quality at the factory before deciding on any increases. Hyundai sold more than 186,000 Elantras last year, nearly a 41 percent increase over 2010 figures.

Ex WFSB anchor Gayle King goes to be a part of CBS Morning show.


Former WFSB anchor Gayle King turnes up her sparse,temporary office in New York City and make herself ready to taker on the world. She is stepping out of her home in Connecticut to join a newly formatted “CBS This Morning.”.

King said of her new career “I am nervous, pressured, exhilarated, thrilled and very humbled. I’m so glad to see you” smile. “It is a very different kind of morning news show, and from the moment you see the way it opens Monday, you will be hooked and intrigued.”

CBS is teaming her up with PBS’ Charlie Rose and Erica Hill for a new hard hitting news format that will hopefully save the morning show from its awful ratings.  The show has consistently been among the lowest rated in the 7-9 am slot.

“The thing is, CBS hasn’t been number one in that time slot since ‘Captain Kangaroo.  We are all very mindful of that, and I feel tremendous pressure because there is a lot at stake here.  We all want to be part of turning the train around.”

King will be anchoring the 8-9 am time slot with limited appearances before that.  She will not be leaving her position of Editor At Large of “O” The Oprah Winfrey Magazine. It is the close relationship with Oprah Winfrey that has caused her a tabloid headache as of late. The gossip pages have been suggesting that she was only offered the CBS job because of her close connection with Oprah.

King addressed the issue saying, “CBS is not giving out jobs because you are a person’s friend. It doesn’t work that way.” She is more than content with her qualifications, her three Emmy awards and her long list of qualifications to show that she didn’t just get thing job, she earned it. ” I don’t take this for granted.  This chance is a win, lose or draw. I plan to win,” she added.

War Horse premiere: Kate Middleton participated for charity cause.


Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton amazed the audience at the "War Horse" U.K.premiere in a sexy, floor-length lace dress Sunday in London's West End. The Duchess and hubby Prince William, also 29, walked the red carpet at the premiere, which benefited the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry

The royal couple mingled with War Horse director Steven Spielberg and the film's cast, including star Jeremy Irvine. The evening's biggest attraction might not have been the Duke and Duchess. Joey the horse, who plays the title character in War Horse, also walked the red carpet and mingled with the stars.

More: Kate Middletons way of charity.

Middleton, who will turn 30 today Jan 9, has carefully selected a group of children's hospices, along with an art therapy and addiction charity, and a world-famous art gallery to receive her sought-after attention. The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly personally sifted through "a few hundred" potential charities before making her selection of which honorary positions to accept.

For her 30th, the woman who got what girls across the world dream of last year with her lavish royal wedding, has even taken her charity one step further and reportedly asked that all gifts be made in the form of donations to the charities she is now involved with.

Kelly Clarkson’s album “Stronger” sales reportedly grew Stronger after Ron Paul Twitter endorsement


The “American Idol” alum Kelly Clarkson’s album “Stronger” sales reportedly grew Stronger after her Twitter endorsement of Ron Paul, but her political views had little to do with the sales jump, The Hollywood Reporter writes.

The week before Christmas, a flurry of stories online said that Clarkson’s album sales jumped anywhere from 200 to 400 percent, depending on the report. The album of the "Miss Independent" singer did climb to No. 17 from No. 39 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Billboard reported that other albums experienced a greater decline in sales as shoppers cut back on spending the week after Christmas. The overall album market dropped 49% that week.

Ron Paul himself was proud about what the endorsement did for her sales. At a campaign stop before the caucuses earlier this week, the presidential hopeful bragged to a group of Iowa high schoolers about his popularity among Clarkson fans.
“They went up and bumped up her sales on her records by 600 percent,” Paul said. No offense to Paul, but the bump had more to do with iTunes promotions rather than her libertarian views:

…it wasn’t Clarkson’s political preferences that pushed digital sales of Stronger — its $7.99 sale price (which was matched by Amazon MP3) and iTunes’ advertising were the real reasons behind the gain. Those spikes were usually cited as evidence of the sales gain in the “Ron Paul Sales Bump” articles. In fact, Clarkson’s album, “Stronger” sold 40 percent fewer (41,000 to 25,000) copies than the week before the endorsement. Even though it moved from No. 39 to No. 17 on the Billboard 200 chart, this was due to Clarkson’s album selling better than the other titles on the list.

NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice:Lou Ferrigno, Adam Corolla, Penn Jillette, Aubrey O’Day talks


Lou Ferrigno

NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice 2012 has been announced. The new season of Celebrity Apprentice premieres Sunday, February 12th. Among them are Lou Ferrigno, Adam Corolla, Penn Jillette, and Aubrey O’Day. Said quartet gave an interview to Reality TV Magazine, in which they reflected (they’ve already shot some of it, y’see) on the season.

Mostly it’s a love-in (Ferrigno’s only contribution is talking about “a bunch of great talent, great people,” which suggests he may be talking up a different show), and Penn Jillette gushes for an almost awkward length of time about the merits of Paul Senior.

Aubrey O’Day modestly said she was way better at ‘real-life’ jobs than she expected (thanks for coming down to our level, Aubrey), and noted her strongest point was being able to manipulate the men. Adam Corolla came across as unnervingly similar to, err, me when he said:

“I found out that I was basically a puss who couldn’t handle 6-1/2 hours of sleep six days a week and needed a TiVo and/or DVR apparatus not more than 3 feet away from me no matter where I was.” Penn Jillette admitted Celebrity Appearance, sorry, Apprentice was even beyond his magical powers, saying the only mind game he engaged in was “being in a tiger cage and numb,” which sounds dramatic. Disappointingly, none of them were pressed for their true views on His Wigginess and Future President of the United States of America Donald Trump.

Desperado actress Salma Hayek is honored with french knighthood


Mexican-born Hollywood actress Salma Hayek has been selected by the French government to be inducted into the National Order of the Legion of Honor "Legion d'Honneur" with the grade of Chevalier, or "Knight," Fox News Latino reports. She will be honored with the title at a ceremony in Paris later this year. Hayek was chosen by French President Nicolas Sarkozy to receive the honor and will be given the medal -- the highest in the Legion of Honor -- sometime in the next two months at the Elysee Palace in Paris, a source told People magazine.

The tradition was established by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802 to honor outstanding military and civilian conduct. Joining Hayek will be Francois Pinault, her wealthy tycoon father-in-law, who has also been awarded the same honor. British newspaper The (London) Daily Telegraph reported that some in France have accused Sarkozy of using the awards as a political move in advance of presidential elections. The tabloid also pointed out that Hayek's husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, is close
friends with Sarkozy.

Former French Budget minister Henri Torre was also nominated, but he refused to accept the honor because "too many people were nominated who do not deserve to be honored," Torre told the French magazine Marianne.

600 Pounds Mom Donna Simpson: her daughter is her feeder Jacqueline.


The Guinness Book Of Records holder to give birth a child Jacqueline Donna Simpson has added more 
weight to her in her four year motherhood. At the time she weighed 532 pounds (241 kg). She wished to reach 1000lbs but the last stage she reached is 630lbs (290 kg) in 2008. She is now trying to loose her weight. The 44 year-old mom has already lost 85lbs on her long road to weight loss.

After splitting from long-term partner and feeder Philippe Gouamba, the 50st mother is relying on her four year-old daughter Jacqueline to bring her food to help her reach her goal. "She helps me cook and comes shopping. I use a scooter to get around the store and she runs ahead to get my favorite foods." 

Simpson had a website where men paid $19 a month to watch her eat. The underground community is involved in a rare form of masochism known as feederism.People gain satisfaction by watching others eat and become overweight. 

Simpson says some of the people who watched her were rich attorneys, accountants and college students who wanted to see women whom they believe are attractive.One man from California sent her $200 a week through Western Union to buy groceries. For about six weeks earlier this year, he would call her to find out the list of foods she bought, .A man from Germany sent her a credit card to with specific instructions: Buy pizzas, Chinese food and other takeout.When she told him that she was done in the fantasy world, the man became angry."It's not like these were toothless trolls who live under bridges". 
                                     
But as the year winds to a close, Simpson has moved on from the fantasy world, replacing her pre-recorded videos of her with a blog about her journey to health. She already has lost about 85 pounds. For the record nobody is making fun of this woman. Perhaps this will inspire some of you to keep those New Year's  Resolutions.

Oprah Winfrey with OWN, her new network: hopes doing better this year.


With the new year Oprah Winfrey took to start a new chapter for her with new network new series and new expection to her fans. She converted her media charisma into a monogramed TV channel. Now she's the one tasked with rescuing OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, after a disappointing first year.

Fighting to turn OWN's fortune around, she says, "Yes, some mistakes were made. Who hasn't made mistakes? The real beauty is you can say, 'I learned from that,'" Winfrey said. "I don't worry about failure. I worry about, 'Did I do all I could do?'"

The original primetime series, Oprah’s Next Chapter, debuted on OWN (naturally) on Jan. 1 with a two-hour special featuring Steven Tyler…holding hands with Oprah, and walking around his beautiful lakefront home in Sunapee, New Hampshire. (And wow, nice house, Steven Tyler!)

Seeing Oprah outside the familiar studio set takes some adjusting, as does seeing Winfrey so relaxed in jeans and a sunny yellow sweater. But once she got settled into interview mode with Tyler — and I think I like the behind-the-scenes feel of seeing producers scurrying about readying cameras, etc., in moderation at least– we saw Oprah being Oprah and doing what she does best. This woman is a master interviewer. It’s easy to take for granted, but Winfrey has both an innate ability to get celebrities to open up to her, and  zero hesitation over asking tough questions.

The two-hour format felt a little long, but the show will be just one hour going forward — future Oprah’s Next Chapter segments will focus on Oprah with Sean Penn in Haiti; a dinner with a Hasidic Jewish family in which none of the children had ever seen television; a trip with Deepak Chopra to India; a sleepover with Paula Deen; and a tour of Skywalker Ranch with George Lucas.

Grammy winner Beyonce is on the list of new 2012 mom


"Dangerously in Love" singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress Beyonce revealed back in August at the VMAs that she was pregnant -  Internet is abuzz that she is now ready to give birth (or in some cases, that she already has).

Media Take Out reports that on Dec. 27, the staff at New York's St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital were put on high alert about a high profile patient checking in to give birth. The hospital hasn't confirmed anything, but MTO says Beyonce and Jay-Z are who the entire hospital is "buzzing" about.

Meanwhile, the U.K.'s Daily Mail is saying there are reports that Beyonce has already given birth - to a daughter, named Tiana May Carter. But the paper offers no actual names or websites of where these "reports" are coming from.

Neither Beyonce nor Jay-Z have officially made any comments, though Beyonce did say in her Live at Roseland DVD that she was filming the "Countdown" video on Sept. 23 and she was six months pregnant. That would put her due date right around now.




Emily Watson was brought up withot a television




War Horse actress Emily Watson believes that television is not a good thing for young children's development. Although a great many folk will have been watching re-runs of her old films over Christmas, Emily Watson, the War Horse star, says she has no intention of letting her own children, Juliet, six, and Dylan, two, become couch potatoes.

The 44-year-old actress, left, points to research that shows too much screen time for children – be it television or a computer – endangers their ability to develop empathy with real people. “Credit to my own parents for bringing me up without a television,” the 44-year-old actress says, empathetically.

More: Emily Watson talks about Steven Spielberg and his "War Horse"

Recently she has been chatting about the experience of shooting ‘War Horse’ with director Steven Spielberg, who she says she’d have done anything to work with. Speaking to On the Red Carpet, the British actress simply stated: “It’s Steven Spielberg,” and admitted she would have played a “meek mouse” if asked.
About the film she says, “I think it’s such a potent combination of an animal, an innocent animal and a savage, savage war. A savage and pointless war and putting this animal into the middle of it. And an animal we’ve learned to love, because we’ve learned to love him through the eyes of a boy. They’re like star-crossed lovers in a way, and we desperately want them to be together.”
