Scarlett Johansson says she's no party girl

Don’t look for Scarlett Johansson to come stumbling out of any club hotspots.

The actress appears on the cover of the May issue of InStyle Magazine and tells the publication that she is not much of a party girl.

"You're not going to find me at 4 a.m. hitting up the club, bottle full of bub …,” Johansson said. “Maybe on a rare occasion. But I've just never been much of a clubby, nightlife kind of person.”

Peter Jackson on 'Hobbit' progress

Peter Jackson is nothing if not busy.

Aside from promoting "The Lovely Bones," which came out on video Tuesday, the "Lord of the Rings" director is neck-deep in several other films - Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin," for which he's a producer; "Halo," a long-gestating project he's executive-producing; and "The Hobbit," from the J.R.R. Tolkien book that set up "The Lord of the Rings."

Rumors have swirled around the latter, from its casting - will Ian McKellen return as Gandalf? who's going to play Bilbo Baggins? - to its timing (what's taking so long?). Jackson cleared up some of the mysteries in an interview with Moviefone.com.

'24' recap: Suffering from 'acute Bauer-citis'

Spoiler alert: You know the drill. If you haven't seen this week's episode of "24," don't read any further!

24: Day 8 - 9 to 10 a.m.

With another episode of "24" in the books, we need to discuss my condition. Since last night's show, I've been experiencing edginess, impatience and angst. I'm pretty sure this can't be normal, and I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the way things went down.

I believe I'm suffering from some sort of "acute Bauer-citis" where I constantly seek action-packed intensity from every passing moment of the show. As a result of the condition, if I don't receive the "rock em' sock em' thrill-ride-kind-of-fix" for sixty minutes each Monday night, I suffer from the symptoms, and I'll have a bad day at the office on Tuesday (co-workers, you have been warned).

Movie night on 'Dancing With the Stars'

If you happened to tune in late to “Dancing With the Stars” last night, you may have seen Jake Pavelka, a.k.a “The Bachelor,” in his underwear, frantically trying to put on his pants in the middle of the ballroom. No, it wasn’t a horrible wardrobe malfunction.

Welcome to the “movie night” edition of the show, where the contestants danced to music from films and tried to channel big screen characters - thus Pavelka’s unfortunate attempt to mimic Tom Cruise in “Risky Business.” He did finish his cha-cha fully clothed and actually received compliments from the judges, but it will be hard to forget his, um, brief moment in the spotlight.

It will be easy to forget Kate Gosselin’s performance, on the other hand. She danced a lackluster Foxtrot to the theme music from “The Breakfast Club,” yawning in the rehearsal footage (but no tears!), and looking like she might need an energy boost for the main event as well. Her costume – a flowing pink dress - really didn’t help things since it didn’t evoke anything from the movie, and once again she seemed to be walking through the routine. FULL POST
