John Cusac portrying Adgar Alan Poe but darker side of humanity in "The Raven"

John Cusack in The Raven

The 19th century writer Edgar Allen Poe's characterisation in “The Raven” movie premiers in U.S. theaters on Friday on April 27. It's a gothic thriller and actor John Cusack to play this dark place to portray Edgar Allen Poe. He even had to drop some weight to portray the author.

The actor told an audience at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, the role "was a great opportunity to immerse myself in Poe's mind.” He added, “It's not a place I'd want to immerse myself in year-round, but it's a nice place to visit.”

"I thought it would be fun [to drop 25 pounds for the role]. It wasn't fun not eating," Cusack told co-host Rachel Smith at the film's Hollywood premiere. "It wasn't that fun actually, but I thought that. He was a world famous writer but they didn't have copyrights, so he was dirt poor actually. He was always kind of living hand to mouth and had financial troubles all his life and he was an alcoholic, so I thought that would be the best look - to look kind of emaciated and real wiry. It was a fun time. I put myself into everything I do, so I put myself all-in on this one."

"The Raven" follows Cusack's Edgar Allan Poe, who helps a Baltimore detective track down a serial killer after a series of horrific murders mimic the dark writer's works.

The film, which earned $2.5 million in Friday's box office, also stars Luke Evans as Detective Fields and Alice Eve as Poe's love interest, Emily Hamilton.

"Poe's head space and his sort of writing - he always has a sort of romance to the abyss," Cusack said. "It's anguish and it's torment, but he's also exploring what's around that corner and I think he almost had this sort of religious feeling about that twilight between waking and dreaming, between sanity and insanity, between life and death - he always wanted to get to that twilight space - that was his sweet spot - so it was also kind of fun, in a weird way."

Cusack is known mostly for playing "good guy" roles, such as Lloyd Dobler in the 1989 romantic teen comedy "Say Anything" and Rob Gordon in the 1996 film "High Fidelity." He also played an assassin in the 1997 movie "Grosse Point Blank" and starred with Cage in the action film "Con Air."

The 45-year-old actor was happy to go to a darker place for the role of Poe, whose most well-known work includes "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Gold-Bug" and "The Cask of Amontillado."

"What makes Poe really resonate is that that [dark] place is in all of us," Cusack said of the writer's appeal. "That's why when you look at Kurt Cobain or Edgar Allen Poe or some of these guys who are so tormented and expressive, we all love them because we recognize ourselves in them... Poe expressed all those things - that shadowy part of our consciousness in such a deep way that we're still talking about him and made a movie about him a hundred years later - a hundred and fifty years later."

Cusack will take on several darker roles in the near future, portraying a serial killer opposite Vanessa Hudgens in "The Frozen Ground" and a death row inmate in "The Paperboy," which also stars Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey. Cusack said "The Raven" is just one of several he has coming up that show the dark side of humanity.

American Idol determined tho top 5 ousting Elise Testone

The idol in sixth on the eleventh season of American Idol Elise Testone was ousted Thursday night's live results show broadcast on Fox. This goodbye to the 28-year-old bubbly blonde South Carolina singer is because of the lowest number of votes cast after Wednesday's performance round.

Facing elimination with Hollie Cavanagh, Testone said she wasn't entirely shocked she got the boot. "I feel like my brain is wired to accept everything that happens, so as soon as they said my name…I accepted it immediately," Testone told Us Weekly after the elimination show.

Slammed by the judges for her obscure song choice of Jimi Hendrix's "Bold as Love" Wednesday, Testone -- who went into the show thinking she'd win -- didn't always understand Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler's constructive criticism.

"I've had a longer lifetime of work [than some other contestants] just because of how much I've done, so I've learned so much. Some things [the judges] say don't line up with what I feel I've learned on my own," Testone argues. "I don't always feel like [their feedback] was helpful. I'm not saying I'm the best. I don't think for the most part it always made sense."

Testone -- who received a shout-out from celeb fan Jason Segel on a recent episode -- says she'll definitely take Stevie Nicks up on her offer to possibly sing backup for the music legend.

The final performance:::::

"I'm going to reach out to everyone. [Queen's] Brian May and I are pretty much best friends now, so we're going to hang out," the eliminated singer says. "Ellen [DeGeneres], we're pretty much homegirls. I haven't met her yet, but she tweeted me and said she loves me."

Lisa Nicole Lopes best known as Left eye is remembered as an icon

Lisa Nicole Lopes best known as Left eye was Famous rapper of 90s died on April 25  while driving a Mitsubishi Montero Sport  in La Ceiba, Honduras. She was also well known in the ’90s for her outlandish fashion sense and violent temper as she was for her musical ability. On the tenth anniversary of her death, TLC announced a new tour which will incorporate Left Eye through archived footage. Perhaps inspired by the Tupac hologram at Coachella this year, the group says they will have Left Eye singing with them while her image is projected onto a giant screen.

In an era when being as bold as you wanna be can be good for business, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, one-rebellious-third of the iconic girl group TLC, might not have seemed like an anomaly among the Rihannas, Katys and Britneys. But back in the early 1990s, you were bound to arch a few eyebrows if your thing was to rock condoms as eye patches and spit verses like, "If I need it in the morning or the middle of the night, I ain't too proud to beg."

Philadelphia-born Lisa was just barely out of her teens in 1991, when she joined a trio under the direction of manager Perri "Pebbles" Reid, an R&B singer herself and then-wife of LaFace Records co-founder Antonio "LA" Reid. Left Eye, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas would release their debut album, Ooooooohhh ... On the TLC Tip, the following year.

The unlikely uniform was sagging baggy Guess jeans, hats to the back and oversize tees decorated with safe-sex latex, and the sound (mostly courtesy of producer Dallas Austin) was an in-your-face blend of pop, rap and R&B, with some New Jack Swing for good measure. Don't forget that all that racy talk and those Trojan sunglasses were actually brave messages about the HIV-AIDS epidemic that would eventually give way to Left Eye's poignant bars on songs like "Waterfalls."

By the time of her death, Left Eye and her groupmates had seemingly locked down every imaginable accolade. Four Grammys and just as many multiplatinum albums, a stream of chart-crushing singles ("No Scrubs," "Creep"), not to mention the coveted rank of second-best-selling girl group of all time (the Spice Girls sit at #1). But before she was killed in a tragic car accident on a spiritually-minded trip to Honduras, the rapping third of TLC had also weathered her fair share of drama.

With the release in 1994 of the group's diamond-selling Crazy Sexy Cool, the trio took the opportunity to play on fans' perception of their particular personas: Georgia girl Chilli brought the sexy, gravelly voiced T-Boz played it cool and Left Eye was "the crazy one." If these were supposed to be symbolic tags, Lopes perhaps had her own interpretation. Feeling underappreciated, she set fire to a pile of sneakers belonging to NFL boyfriend Andre Rison that ultimately left his Georgia home in flames and the singer in handcuffs. The couple only made more headlines as allegations of cheating and even domestic abuse dogged them. But who could forget the famous Vibe mag cover of the girls dressed in firemen clothes and meeting the media maelstrom head-on?

The fiercely independent Lopes took on her label — and then her bandmates. Never mind that 1999's FanMail (email was kind of a big deal back then!), their third effort together, spawned massive hits like "Scrubs" and the poignant anthem "Unpretty," Left Eye thought her contributions were being diminished. So she outright challenged Chilli and T-Boz to record solo albums that would be bundled and sold for fans to decide which of the three CDs was best. When that didn't pan out, Left Eye simply moved on and recorded a solo effort, Supernova, which saw an overseas release but not much traction.

In the end, what fans wanted was TLC: beauty, brains, swagger, and each member exhibited all three qualities in her own way. In Left Eye, who told MTV News in a late-90s interview that she really admired "Cosby Show" actress Lisa Bonet (a.k.a. boho icon Denise Huxtable), girls, in particular, had a model for going your own way. Her indie streak was as pronounced as the football stripe painted beneath her eye, and that's as much her legacy as the music.

Valeria Lukyanova claims herself to be 'Real-life Barbie'

The real life Barbie Valeria Lukyanova

With a pair of big glassy eyes, a tiny waist, straight platinum blonde hair and large breasts Valeria Lukyanova proves herself to be a living Barbie doll at her 21-year-of age. She has become an internet sensation in her home country of Russia, claiming on her blog to be the most famed woman on the Russian-language internet. Her doll-like features, long blonde hair and ‘perfect’ body make her look like a real life Barbie.

Lukyanova claims to be the “the most famous Russian woman on the Russian-language Internet.”

In fact, with her physical appearance she bears such a resemblance to the famed plastic doll that cynical web users have been speculating about whether or not she is real. In a spoof video posted on YouTube an animated version of the model undergoes surgery to enhance her already prominent assets.

The girl checks into a plastic surgeons office. As she lies on an operating table, the ‘surgeon’ uses a hand-held pump to enlarge her breasts, before giving her a face-lift using putty and a chainsaw.

Horrified viewers have slammed the model over her looks. One commented: She looks not only ugly, but ridiculous while another wrote: ‘A woman with completely perfect features is a boring woman.’

Others were kinder to the blonde beauty. One asked: ‘Isn't unhealthy obsession on looking like a Barbie doll a part of her identity though?’ But the big question remains unanswered: Is Valeria real or is this an elaborate Photoshop hoax? More ‘normal’ photos on her Facebook page of the 21-year-old wearing far less make-up suggest she does exists.

Valeria has 155 subscribers following her profile on the social networking website – double the number of friends she has at 78. One fan, a man named Firtina Seymen has ‘liked’ virtually all of her photos and written ‘beautiful’ underneath them. Photos have also been posted on her blog, on which she writes about making music and meditation. According to NMA.TV she is seeking out followers in France and elsewhere in Europe.

Lady Gaga in S.Korea for Seoul concert: Anti Gaga slogan by the Chritians

Gaga started with a flying kiss to fans at Seoul Airport
Amid criticism and protest from S. Korean Christians sex symbol US pop singer Lady Gaga arrived in South Korea late Friday, one week before a Seoul performance which will kick off her third concert tour. The anti-Gaga even organised a praying ceremony agaist Lady Gaga's Seoul concert as they believe that Gaga is advocating homosexuality and Pornography.

The singer, wearing a floor-length low-cut white dress, white gloves and a pearl-encrusted mask, blew kisses to fans at Seoul's Gimpo airport who tried to snap her image on smartphones. Her schedule in South Korea for the coming week was unclear and concert organisers Hyundai Card declined to give details.

"The Born This Way Ball" tour begins on April 27 at Seoul's Olympic Stadium. From there Lady Gaga will take her hits and extravagant costumes to Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia, and then on to 21 European cities.

South Koreans aged under 18 have been banned from the concert after it was rated unsuitable for younger audiences. The show had an initial age rating of 12 and older but the Korea Media Rating Board -- a state watchdog -- adjusted it upwards.

Some religious groups in South Korea have opposed the concert, saying Lady Gaga has advocated homosexuality and performed in an explicitly sexual manner. "Our Christian community needs concerted action to stop young people from being infected with homosexuality and pornography," the Korean Association of Church Communication said in a statement last month.

Lady Gaga is expected to do 110 shows this year following up the success of her album "Born This Way", which has sold nearly six million copies worldwide since it was released in May 2011. The eccentric star from New York has a record number of almost 22 million followers on Twitter.

The singer, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, is famous for the hit songs "Bad Romance" and "Poker Face," and has become a strident voice for gay rights and anti-bullying campaigns.

Jennie Garth new reality series tells about her recent spit with Peter Facinelli

Garth at Emmy in 1992

Kelly Taylor of the "Beverly Hills, 90210 franchise" Jennifer Eve "Jennie" Garth premiers her new series  "Jennie Garth: A Little Bit of Country" on CMT on April 20 that deals with her personal life, Garth's recent split from "twilight" actor Peter Facinelli, who will not appear in the show.

Garth’s divorce from Facinelli(2001-2012) began right in the middle pf production on A Little Bit of Country. The actress said recently on Today that the timing of the divorce was one of the most difficult things for her to deal with.

“[The timing] has probably been the hardest part,” Garth said (via Yahoo). “When I started to take this show on, I wasn’t headed down this road. It happened in the middle of filming the show. Now, part of my job … is doing press so I’m doing the interviews and people want to talk about it. I’m OK talking about [my divorce], but it’s not something you really want to talk about.”

Jennie may not have wanted to talk about her divorce, but there was one thing surrounding the divorce that the actress was quick to address: rumors that Garth was “jealous” of Facinelli’s success following his role in Twilight.

“I enjoyed the quote that I was envious of his fame,” Garth laughed. “There was nothing like that going on. I was very happy for him – so happy to be at home with the kids and enjoying my early retirement. I just wanted to be on the farm.”

Garth is moving forward, however, and she has plenty of things to keep her busy, including raising her three children, attending to her farm, and, of course, her new reality show, A Little Bit of Country. Facinelli isn’t gone from her and her family’s life, though–her ex is still involved with their family, and it’s something the two are actively working through.

“It is something that we [are] working through together – and as anybody who’s been through [divorce knows], it’s always kind of shocking. It’s sad for our family unit [but] we’re a great family and I think we always will be.”

Garth and her three daughters are now living on a 7-acre farm two hours from Los Angeles, with the help of her assistant Corinne.

Robots will live together and will become sex partner in 40 years! researchers predict

The prediction was made in a research paper that in the future brothels will serve-up robot prostitutes offering clean, guilt-free sex, say researchers. In what almost sounds a bit like a Penthouse letter, researchers have predicted that sex robots will be the future of buying sex, and robots.

In a journal called Futures, management professor Ian Yeoman and sexologist Michelle Mars imagined a sex club in Amsterdam populated by the sex robots, where punters could be serviced by virtual creatures they describe as “sexual gods and goddesses of different ethnicities, body shapes, ages, languages and sexual features.”

Predicting future issues with increased rates of sexually transmitted infection and human sex trafficking in the 2040s (a depressing thought considering that those who will be affected aren’t even born yet), Yeoman and Mars describe their vision of a sex robot nightclub venue.

RedOrbit (which disturbingly uses the adjective “slutty” throughout the piece, proving that even robot women are subject to pejorative terms, even in the future) quotes the researchers’ imaginings:

“It is modern and gleaming with about 100 scantily clad blonde and brunettes parading around in exotic G-strings and lingerie. Entry costs $10,000 for an all inclusive service… The most popular model is Irina, a tall, blonde, Russian exotic species who is popular with Middle Eastern businessmen.”

World's first sex robot
Of course, no one thinks about the actual human prostitutes and pimps such an innovation will impact. The toll of human pain from trafficking will be decreased by such a trend, but naysayers in the small-but-legal camp of purveyors of legal, flesh and blood romps say that no sex robot can replace a living, breathing female. Dennis Hof of Nevada’s iconic Moonlight Bunny Ranch and star of the creepy HBO late-night property Cathouse thinks the researchers ought to sample the X-rated American nightlife before ruling out the future of living sex workers altogether:

“Those Australian researchers ought to come to the Bunny Ranch to see what real American sex is like- there’s no way to duplicate it… At the Bunny Ranch, we say ‘it’s not just the sex, it’s an adventure’ -and often times it’s more about the adventure than it is the sex.”

Yes, but what’s a bigger adventure than getting busy with a sex robot, Mr. Hof? Yeoman and Mars theorize that the innovation will remove the stigma of visiting a prostitute from some encounters, as well as eliminate the need for johns to lie to partners after a turn with the sex robots:

“All in all, the regeneration of Amsterdam’s sex industry has been about the success of the new breed of sex worker… Even clients feel guilt free as they actually haven’t had sex with a real person and therefore don’t have to lie to their partner.” The pair also surmise the sex robots will be built using special bacteria resistant fibers, to ensure safe robot sex.

It is not the first time that this kind of speculation is taking place. In 2007 Netherlands university student David Levy said humans will be marrying and having sex with robots by 2050.

Time Magazine's 100 most influential people 2012 revealed

On Wednesday April 18'12, Time Magazine has released its list of the 100 most influential people in 2012. The list includes politicians, entertainment figures and sports stars. Among them: Barack Obama; Mitt Romney; Hillary Clinton; Warren Buffett; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge; Pippa Middleton; Tim Tebow; Jeremy Lin and Matt Lauer.

The magazine said it picked people "who inspire us, entertain us, challenge us and change our world." And not always for the better. Included on the list were Syrian president Bashar Assad, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and spiritual leader of the Taliban Mullah Mohammed Omar. Somali Islamic militant Sheik Moktar Ali Zubeyr was included in the "rogues gallery" too. Anonymous, the controversial Internet "hacktivist" collective, won the magazine's online poll for its inclusion on the 2012 list.

There are 38 women on the 2012 list, more than any other year, Time said. Adele, Rihanna and "Saturday Night Live" star Kristen Wiig made it, while singer Lana Del Rey--the Internet sensation who had been nominated--did not.

As with any list, there were other snubs: Romney and fellow Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul were selected, but Newt Gingrich was not. Stephen Colbert, Time decided, was more influential than Jon Stewart. There were a few questionable--though not unworthy--inclusions with ties to Time. Former editor Walter Isaacson, who penned Time's cover story on Steve Jobs' death--made the list for his biography of the late Apple founder. Mashable founder Pete Cashmore—whose site was rumored to be close to a sale to Time-corporate sibling CNN earlier this year--made the list for the first time.

As has become traditional, Time solicited essays about honorees from fellow luminaries. Obama wrote about Buffett and Lin about Tebow: Watching Tim Tebow play football, you can observe many things about his character. You see his fierce competitiveness, his strong work ethic and how he is a leader that his teammates trust and respect.

But it is the qualities that Tim, 24, embodies in his life off the field that truly set him apart. He is unashamed of his convictions and faith, and he lives a life that consistently reflects his values, day in and day out. Through his foundation, he constantly reaches out to people and communities in need of hope. He realizes what he has been blessed with and seeks to help those who are worse off. As athletes, we pour our hearts into winning games. Tim is a reminder that life is about much more than that.

Madonna eldest daughter Laurdes is following her mom in "Girl Gone Wild"

The pop queen Madonna's eldest daughter Lourdes was recently seen puffing away as she loitered around with male friends on Friday. The 15 years old had the cigarette in her hand as a pal lighted it for her and seemed very comfortable with it. The legal age for smoking in America is 18.

Wearing a black and white mini dress with matching shoes, the 10th grade schoolgirl wore dark shades and her long hair loosely around her shoulders. At one point she even sneakily tried to hide the cigarette in her hand by holding it upside down as she walked along, the Daily Mail reported.

Lourdes is following in her mother's footsteps in many ways including her passion for fashion with the family's clothing line Material Girl.

As Madonna was seen seductively posing with a cigarette in her latest music video 'Girl Gone Wild', it appears it may be a bad habit picked up closer to home. The singer's rep had denied that she had started smoking again after pictures surfaced of her with what looked like a cigarette in hand while shooting her movie 'WE' in 2010.

The Material Mom has warned her 15-year-old daughter to watch her hemlines in the past, and when Lourdes was recently caught smoking a cigarette, Madge was not pleased. In an interview with NBC's "Rock Center," Madonna admitted that she "wasn't very happy" when she found out.

The single mother of four added that she thinks she's a tough mom, but perhaps not as tough as she could be. "I think I need to be maybe tougher, but it's hard, though. It's hard. Every day is a negotiation," she said. "Cigarette smoking," however, she's "not very fond of, for anyone. I don't approve of anyone smoking cigarettes, most of all my daughter."

Emma Watson got her love Will Adamowicz on her 22nd birthday

The Harry Potter” star Emma Watson is coming to theatre in the role of a “bad girl” in her new movie “The Bling Ring.” But before that the news that attracts all that Emma Watson got everything she wished for on her 22nd birthday.

The actress packed on the PDA with her new boyfriend Will Adamowicz at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, Calif. Saturday. The Brown University students began dating in late 2011 while both studying abroad at the University of Oxford.

Earlier in the day, Watson was spotted "kissing her boyfriend" at the Mulberry BBQ pool party, an eyewitness tells Us Weekly. The Harry Potter actress also bonded with Mirror Mirror star Lily Collins, 23.

Watson, who turned 22 Sunday, tweeted: "Just enjoyed a birthday feast of mac m' cheese, jelly beans and lemonade."

She later added, "As far as I'm concerned I turned 22 when Florence + the Machine sang 'What the Water Gave Me' at Coachella."

Watson -- whose exes include One Night Only singer George Craig, Made In Chelsea's Francis Boulle and her Perks Of Being A Wallflower costar Johnny Simmons -- is currently in L.A. shooting The Bling Ring, based loosely on the true story about a group of teens who robbed celebrities' homes.

"Filming Bling Ring is going great," Watson recently tweeted. "As Israel would say, 'We are slaying this!' Thanks for the good luck messages."

The begining of 2005, Angie and Pitt officially engaged

On Friday April 13 a rep confirmed that Angelina Jolie, 36, and Brad Pitt, 48, a Hollywood megastar couple since 2005, are engaged at last. He says, "I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt."

She and Pitt, on wednesday night, visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) with son Pax, and as the family checked out the museum's extraordinary collection of Chinese art, Angelina was sporting a huge rock on her left ring finger.

But it won't be the first time she's played the blushing bride. The 36-year-old has said "I do" twice before in short-lived marriages that combined aren't as long as she's already been with Pitt, with whom she has six children. In fact, Angelina, who famously met Brad while filming the sexy action flick "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" in 2005 — when he was still married to his only previous wife Jennifer Aniston — has made a habit of meeting her grooms on the set.

and Pitt with the children were visiting the Los Angeles
County Museum of Art (LACMA) on April 11'12
Years before Hollywood noticed Angelina for her performances in TNT's "George Wallace" or HBO's "Gia," she was part of a cast that included Jonny Lee Miller for the 1995 computer crime film "Hackers." The couple swapped vows in March 1996, just six months after the movie came out, in a small civil ceremony. Angelina, always one to be different, sported a pair of rubber pants and a T-shirt with her guy's name written across the back in her own blood, which she had drawn herself, according to the New York Times. "It's your husband. You're about to marry him," she told the newspaper. "You can sacrifice a little to make it really special." How romantic.

They separated in September 1997, and divorced in February 1999. However, they are friends to this day, with Miller even coming out to support his former flame at the premiere of her directorial debut "In the Land of Blood and Honey" last year. At the time of the divorce, Miller told Life & Style, "There are no regrets and no bitterness. Marriage was something that didn't work out, and I had to make the decision sooner or later. I decided to make it sooner."

Angelina's second spouse, Billy Bob Thornton, played her hubby in the 1999 comedy "Pushing Tin." He arrived on the set engaged to actress Laura Dern, but ended up marrying Angie on May 5, 2000, in Las Vegas. The brunette beauty was earning quite a reputation as an actress — she won the best supporting actress Oscar for her role in 2000's "Girl, Interrupted" — and for her odd relationship with Billy Bob.

Remember how the two wore vials of each other's blood around their neck? (What is her obsession with blood?) Somehow, it seemed they belonged together. It didn't last though, and the two split in June 2002, just three months after Angelina adopted a son that Brad would eventually raise as his own.

However, the two are still on good terms, and she recently wrote the forward to Thornton's memoirs. "It took me by surprise, too, because overnight, we totally changed," Jolie told Vogue in 2004. "I think one day we had just nothing in common. And it's scary but... I think it can happen when you get involved and you don't know yourself yet."

But by 2003 when the action blockbuster "Laura Croft: Tomb Raider" was released, everyone knew who Angelina was. Just a few years later, Brad would come into her life. Do you think marriage for the third time will be the charm for Angelina?

Jada Pinkett Smith blows over the rumor round the divorce with husband Will Smith

Man in Black actor Will Smith and his wife Jada pinkett smith have been battling with a rumor and thus with media of the troubles of the relationship as husband and wife. Jada is wondering if this speculation ends at all. When asked why the speculation won't go away, she tells French magazine Gala:

"I have no idea! Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope. This year, unluckily, it's us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it." 

"These rumors are completely untrue," the actress also told the French magazine Gala. "We're waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over ... Will and I know the truth."

In January, In Touch Weekly reported that Pinkett Smith had moved out of the couple's home and was living with her brother. "That's ridiculous," Pinkett Smith now says of the rumor. "We've always lived together."

She does however confess that she does spend a lot of time apart from her husband due to work, which could be contributing to appearances that they are no longer a united front.

"I travel a lot because of my work, just like Will does. But our lifestyle hasn't changed," she said. "Before we had the kids, we were already far away from each other quite often because of separate projects."

Pinkett Smith reveals that the family is split in half at the moment, thanks to their work schedules. While Will Smith and son Jaden Smith are currently filming "After Earth" with M. Night Shyamalan, Pinkett Smith will soon accompany daughter Willow Smith as she goes on tour this summer.

The family did however make a public appearance in March, appearing gleeful in courtside seats at a Miami Heat vs. the Philadelphia 76ers basketball game in Philadelphia.

The Hundred years about the great great ship The RMS Titanic.

Jenny McCarthy, former playboy playmate, fresh dating with Brian Urlacher

Jenny McCarthy in love with football and foot ball player below
American model, comedian, actress, author, activist, game show host and former playboy playmate Jenny McCarthy has been recently seen dining with at Mastro’s in L.A. with Brian Urlacher, a linebacker for the Chicago Bears of the National Football league. Late last year McCarthy told Access Hollywood that she hasn’t had luck in the love department, because “it’s tough to find a man’s man” in Los Angeles.

I don’t care if they have a big nose,” 39-year-old McCarthy revealed at the time. “I don’t care if they’re bald. I just want someone who’s really sweet and who’s a perfect reflection of who I am now.”

"It seems that the actress and former playmate has found someone that met those requirements as she was recently spotted leaving a Beverly Hills, California steakhouse with star Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.

According to a report by TMZ, the two were caught leaving Mastro’s restaurant in Beverly Hills together following a dinner at one of the most expensive steak joints in the city.

Yahoo! writes that although the pair attempted to sneak out the back door of the eatery where an SUV vehicle was waiting, they were extremely noticeable thanks to Urlacher’s large frame and McCarthy’s snappy dress sense. If McCarthy and Urlacher are in fact an item, it wouldn’t the first time the Pro-Bowler has dated a blonde, as the Chicago Sun-Times points out he briefly dated Paris Hilton in 2003.

Jenny McCarthy was last linked to actor and comedian Jim Carey. The two separated in 2010, following a five-year relationship. They are really hoping a happy time together and their  hope might live.

Ashley Judd slammed the tabloid mediav for degrading her appearence

Helen, Twisted, Bug and TV show Missing (2012–present) Actress Ashley Judd  slammed the tabloid media and celebrity bloggers, after enduring weeks of online speculation over her looks. But the piece isn’t just about Judd’s appearance — it’s a feminist call to arms that charges both men and women to stop playing into a patriarchal system, one that equates female beauty with worth. The bottom line: Judd is, emphatically, not just another pretty face.

In a column in the Daily Beast, Judd describes what she calls the “misogynistic assault on all women” that results when the appearance of celebrities is picked apart on air and on the internet. The complaints stemmed from a March appearance by the 43-year-old actress while she was promoting her new series Missing, in which she plays a mother searching for her son.

After those appearances, she was variously described as having gained weight, having aged badly or having had plastic surgery, with some media outlets consulting with surgeons to discuss how much work she has had done. Judd says she had been on medication that made her face puffy, though she did not specify what illness she was battling, in her long essay in the Daily Beast.

She claimed that she has learned, as an actress and activist, not to pay attention to media speculation, but felt she had to address the coverage because it was so degrading. “I choose to address it because the conversation was pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic and embodies what all girls and women in our culture, to a greater or lesser degree, endure every day, in ways both outrageous and subtle,” Judd wrote.

“The assault on our body image, the hypersexualization of girls and women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality as we walk through the decades, and the general incessant objectification is what this conversation allegedly about my face is really about.”

She also was critical of viewer comments made after an episode of Missing in which her character is up for hours and under extreme stress. Viewer remarks ranged from “What the f*** did she do to her face?” to cautionary gloating, “Ladies, look at the work!”

She addresses the absurd suggestion that she’s “messed up” just because “my 2012 face looks different than it did when I filmed Double Jeopardy in 1998.” Judd was particularly critical of women who speculated about her, saying they are supporting a culture in which women are judged solely on appearance and their accomplishments are minimized.

Judd’s cri de coeur has re-ignited debate through the internet and social media about the impossible standards of youth and beauty set by popular culture and the unwinnable war aging celebrities face over their appearance.
