Shia LaBeouf wears brown paper bag to premiere


Shia LaBeouf wore a brown paper bag over his head to the German premiere of his new movie.
The 27-year-old actor, who announced he was retiring from "all public life" last month, refused to show his face at a red carpet screening of 'Nymphomaniac' in Berlin on Sunday night (09.02.14).
He cut two eye-holes into the bag and wrote the words "I'm Not Famous Anymore" in black capital letters on it before placing it over his head and attending the event in a dapper tuxedo, according to gossip website TMZ.com.
The 'Transformers' star was clearly eager to make a statement just an hour after storming out of a press conference for the movie.
When asked if it was uncomfortable filming sex scenes for the film, Shia let his co-star Stacy Martin answer first.
After hesitating for a moment, the dishevelled-looking star, who was missing a bottom tooth, then quoted retired French soccer player Eric Cantona's famous words to answer unwanted media attention: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Thank you very much."
He then walked off stage much to the amusement of Stacy.
Shia announced in January that he was taking a step back from the limelight after he was forced to apologise for plagiarising author Daniel Clowes' graphic novellas, 'Justin M. Damiano,' for his short film 'HowardCantour.com'.
He wrote on Twitter: "In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life."
He added: "My love goes out to those who have supported me. #stopcreating."

Victoria Beckham receives ‘beautiful note’


Victoria Beckham received a special good luck note before her fashion show.
The former Spice Girl was sent a "beautiful message" from her husband, David Beckham, and their four children, Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, eight, and two-year-old Harper before presenting her latest collection at New York Fashion Week on Sunday (09.02.14).
The 39-year-old designer took a snap of the well-wishes, which read: "Good luck Mommy, love David, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper xxxxx," and shared it on Twitter, with the caption: "Beautiful message from my babies x vb."
The brunette beauty clearly appreciated the support of her family as David, 38, and their children also had front row seats at the presentation.
Although the Beckham clan currently live in London, the retired footballer recently sparked speculation they could relocate to Miami, Florida in the future after he announced he is launching a Major League Soccer club there.
Speaking at a press conference earlier this week, he said: "This is an exciting time for myself, family and friends. We're really looking forward to bringing this to Miami."
A spokesperson for the star also told the MailOnline website: "Victoria and the children are thrilled by this next adventure in their life story, as a family they love America and are all very excited to explore a new city and spend time in beautiful Miami."

Jennifer Hudson feels confident


Jennifer Hudson has learnt to embrace her figure.
The 'Feeling Good' hitmaker, who lost 80 pounds after first signing up as a Weight Watchers spokesperson a few years ago, admits she no longer feels self-conscious on the red carpet.
Wearing a short white dress with a plunging neckline, the 32-year-old star told USA Today newspaper at the BET Honours 2014 in Washington D.C. on Saturday night (08.02.14): "You need to embrace yourself, find those things that you love about yourself and know that no one is like you, and own being you."
Jennifer recently admitted she is much more comfortable with who she is since entering her thirties.
She said: "I love the thirties. I'm like, now I got the hang of it and being settled with myself and embracing it. I love the space that I'm in."
Meanwhile, rapper and actor Ice Cube, legendary singer Aretha Franklin, Motown founder and visionary Berry Gordy, photographer Carrie Mae Weems and American Express CEO Kenneth Chenault were among those honoured at the annual event.
Mariah Carey wowed the audience by performing her new single, 'You're Mine,' for the first time in a black, cleavage-baring dress atop a piano.
Hosted by 'How I Met Your Mother' star Wayne Brady, the BET Honours will air February 24 on BET.

Justin Bieber speeding long before arrest?


Justin Bieber was allegedly speeding hours before he was arrested in Miami last month.
The 19-year-old star was charged with driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and driving with an invalid licence on January 23, but the singer's yellow rented Lamborghini reached 136 MPH at 1.23 a.m., long before he was pulled over by police shortly after 4 a.m.
According to data, obtained by TMZ.com, from the car's built-in GPS tracking system, which recorded its speed and location at all times, the vehicle clocked 108 MPH on the Julia Tuttle Causeway in Miami Beach and accelerated to 136 MPH within a minute while being driven to Set nightclub, where the singer arrived at 2.27 a.m. and partied for an hour before leaving.
But the data also shows that Justin was cruising under the speed limit at 27 MPH when he was arrested and accused of drag racing at between 55 and 60 MPH for 15 blocks.
The 'Heartbreaker' hitmaker is set to appear in court in Florida in relation to the charges on March 3.
Justin's lawyer Roy Black has already filed a written plea of not guilty.
Meanwhile, his lawyers are fighting to stop half-naked pictures of the star in police custody being published.
The images were taken when he was arrested and sources say they expose "intimate" parts of his body.

Gwen Stefani celebrates baby shower


Gwen Stefani enjoyed a star-studded baby shower on Saturday (08.02.14).
The No Doubt rocker, who recently confirmed she is expecting another baby boy with her husband Gavin Rossdale, was joined by her close friends, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Alba and Nicole Richie, for the blue-themed bash at the Hotel Bel Air in Los Angeles.
A source told UsMagazine.com: "People cheered as soon as she walked in.
"There were lots of people laughing and it seemed like everyone was having a lot of fun. It was very lively!"
The blonde beauty, 44, arrived with Gwyneth and was ushered into a private room that was decorated with light blue lights, bouquets of white hydrangeas, a banner that said "SWEET," and "guests were greeted with glasses of red or white wine."
Other guests at the afternoon tea party included chat show host Chelsea Handler, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and Tobey Maguire's jewellery designer wife, Jen Meyer.
Gwen posted a photograph of a table of blue sweet treats at the event on her Instagram page on Saturday, with the caption: "Baby shower!!! #can't believe im pregs thanku Shelli Azoff for a beautiful #girlyday =blessed (sic)"
The 'Settle Down' singer, who already has sons Kingston, seven, and Zuma, five, with her husband, recently revealed she is thrilled to be pregnant with another boy.
She wrote on Instagram: "I was ready to hand over the crown. But I guess I am still queen of the house. #itsaboy #surroundedbyboys."

Bruce Willis and wife enjoy babymoon


Bruce Willis whisked Emma Heming-Willis away on a babymoon ahead of the birth of their second child.
The 'Diehard' star and his 35-year-old model wife, who are already parents to daughter Mabel, 21 months, recently returned from a romantic trip to the Turks and Caicos Islands, where the 58-year-old actor owns a home.
An insider told UsMagazine.com: "The babymoon was at Bruce's place in Parrot Cay."
Emma posted a photograph of herself looking happy and relaxed on the beach during their holiday on her Facebook page with the caption: "#BabyMoon 2014 Photo: B. Willis"
She also shared a picture of her famous husband flying a kite on the beach and wrote: "A man with many hidden talents #KiteFlying"
It was first revealed in December that the couple, who married five years ago, are expecting another baby.
Bruce also has three daughters, Rumer, 25, Scout, 22, and Tallulah, 20, with his ex-wife Demi Moore, and the source suggested the actor wouldn't mind having another baby girl.
The insider said: "[Bruce is] adorable with Mabel and all of his girls. It's hilarious to see the tough guy stereotype just melt away. He'll put on a baby voice, get cute with her. Being a dad is no doubt the most important thing for him."
Emma appears to be equally close to Bruce's other daughters as shortly after returning from their holiday, the couple helped Tallulah celebrate her birthday in New York City.
The brunette beauty shared a photo of her youngest stepdaughter on February 3, with the caption: "So proud of the woman you're becoming. Thank you for allowing me into your world. Happy Birthday @buuski #proudstepmom"

Jake Gyllenhaal spotted with mystery brunette


Jake Gyllenhaal has been spotted with a new mystery woman in New York City.
The 'End of Watch' star, who recently ended his six-month relationship with model Alyssa Miller, sparked speculation he has already moved on as he strolled around SoHo with a pretty brunette woman on Saturday (08.02.14).
The 33-year-old actor looked scruffy and extremely relaxed as he chatted with his companion, who wore matching snow boots, according to the MailOnline website.
Jake is currently shooting his upcoming film 'Everest,' about a 1996 hiking disaster that left eight climbers dead, in Italy, Iceland and Nepal but flew back to New York to attend Philip Seymour Hoffman's funeral with his pal Michelle Williams on Friday (07.02.14).
The duo formed a close friendship on the set of 'Brokeback Mountain' in 2005, and Jake is the godfather to Michelle's eight-year-old daughter, Matilda, with the late Heath Ledger.
A source previously revealed that Jake split from Sports Illustrated beauty Alyssa, 24, in December after they struggled to cope with him relocating to Los Angeles to film his upcoming movie 'Nightcrawler'.
The insider said: "They fizzled out. It happened a while ago -- before the holidays. He's back on the scene.
"Things were really good between Jake and Alyssa right up until he had to leave for L.A. to go shoot a movie [Nightcrawler] in the fall. Then the distance just really got to them."
A friend also confirmed: "They were apart for the holidays, and things weren't good with them even before that. She's very much a long-term relationship girl. He's not as much of that mind-set."

Cate Blanchett returning to work


Cate Blanchett is returning to work after the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
'The Monuments Men' star, who cleared her schedule last week to mourn the loss of her close friend, has arrived back in Los Angeles with her playwright husband, Andrew Upton, ahead of the official Oscar nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills tomorrow (10.02.14).
The 44-year-old actress, who is nominated for Best Actress for her performance in Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine' at the ceremony on March 2, flew into LAX today (09.02.14) to attend the prestigious event, but was still in a sombre mood as she walked through the airport, according to the MailOnline website.
Cate cancelled a string of promotional appearances last week so she could support the 'Capote' star's estranged partner, Mimi O'Donnell, and attend his funeral in New York City on Friday (07.02.14).
A spokesperson for the Australian star previously said that her team made the decision to postpone interviews on 'Good Morning America' and 'Live! With Kelly and Michael' to promote 'The Monuments Men,' "to allow Cate the time and privacy to grieve the loss of her friend Philip Seymour Hoffman."
The Oscar-nominee formed a close friendship with the 46-year-old actor, who was found dead in his apartment from an apparent heroin overdose last Sunday (02.02.14), while starring alongside him in 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' in 1999.
The actress and her husband, who were among 400 mourners at Philip's funeral, were visibly distraught after the service at the Church of St Ignatius Loyola, Manhattan.

Heidi Range felt ‘responsible’ for bandmates


Heidi Range always felt responsible for her other bandmates.
The former Sugababes singer has taken a leap into theatre after the troubled girl group - who haven't released any new material since 2011 - decided to embark on a break, and she admits it's less pressure performing on stage than producing music with members Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen.
Asked how acting and singing are different, she said: "I think it is different. I think there's more of a big family [in theatre] I guess because there's more of you. I think it just feels like a big family, it sounds really cheesy but it does. I mean you've obviously got a lot of pressure on you as an individual to make sure you're character is right, but in regards to the actual show there's not as much pressure.
"Whereas with the band it was up to the three of us to make it work. Also you don't feel responsible for everyone else I guess in the sense that you did with the band, because it's just you three and if someone is not in the right mind frame you're really panicking about that."
The 30-year-old star is currently starring opposite former 'Emmerdale' actor Ben Freeman in a touring production of 'Happy Days: A New Musical' - based on the popular US sitcom - where she plays Pinky Tuscadero.
Speaking about the play, she said: "I'm just enjoying it. I trained when I was younger in singing, acting and dancing. I mean it's been a long time since I did all three but it really comes back to you but I'm just really loving it and enjoying it."

Lee Ryan says CBB led to sleeping pill addiction


Lee Ryan became "addicted" to sleeping pills after 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The Blue singer has revealed being in the house was tougher than he expected, and he has started to rely on the medication he was taking to help him sleep during his time on the show.
Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, he said: "It is so hard in there ... It f***s with your mind. We all struggled. I starting taking sleeping pills in the house and I've become addicted to them.
"I wasn't the only one taking sleeping pills. A few of us did it. What no one saw was on my last day I was in the diary room crying my eyes out for ages and begging producers to let me see a psychiatrist.
"I was desperate to talk to someone. I think if I'd stayed in there any longer I would have been rocking back and forth and needing a straitjacket. I felt a bit like that anyway."
Lee also claimed he only went on the reality show because he needed to pay "a huge tax bill".
He insisted: "I had to go in the Big Brother house. I had no choice. I had a huge tax bill to pay if I'm being completely honest.
"I thought f**k it, I need to pay my tax bill and they were offering me a huge amount."

The Voice’s Emma Willis offered new deal


Emma Willis has been offered the chance to host 'The Voice' for another year.
The 37-year-old beauty has impressed viewers after she replaced Holly Willoughby, and it is said bosses are very keen for her to return with her co-star Marvin Humes for the show's third series.
An insider told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "From day one, Emma has been incredible. She's connected with the singers and their families.
"She'll get emotional and caught up in their stories and songs. There's no holding back and it's not forced. She's very natural.
"Marvin and her got on really well too - they have this great chemistry. It was always going to be a tough act for her to follow Holly, but Emma seems to have struck an even bigger chord with people."
Although she currently works for a number of channels - due to presenting the likes of 'Celebrity Big Brother' on Channel 5 and 'This Morning' on ITV - the BBC are keen to utilise her talent as much as they can.
The source added: "She is spread across several channels at the moment - working on 'This Morning', 'CBB', 'The Voice' and 'Heart FM'.
"The BBC are hoping she'll stick with them and not totally defect to ITV.
"She's liked by women and men. She's intelligent and can turn her hand to lots of different things."

Bradley Cooper not sure on Oscars date


Bradley Cooper isn't sure who he'll bring to the Oscars this year.
The hunky star is nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Richie DiMaso in 'American Hustle' and he admits he has yet to decide who he'll invite to the glitzy awards bash next month.
He told Figaro TV: "I'm waiting to find out how many tickets I'm going to get."
Cooper - who took his mother as his date to the Oscars last year, when he was nominated for Best Leading Actor for 'Silver Linings Playbook' - has reunited with David O. Russell for his new movie and says it was his idea to give his character an unsightly perm hairdo.
He explained: "It was my idea. I watched loads of videos of someone who was from the FBI during this period. So I approached David O. Russell about having a curly hairdo and he said yes! Then lots of ideas came from that. He puts rollers in his hair every day to become someone else. So then I had to spend three hours every day in hair and make-up getting my hair curled."
