Woody Allen is done playing the romantic lead and is leaving that lovey-dovey stuff to the younger stars. In a candid new interview, the filmmaker says it's a joke to see two senior citizens getting steamy on screen.
"I can't be the love interest any more. I can't play opposite Scarlett Johansson, it's not appropriate," Allen, 75, tells the Guardian of the 26-year-old "Match Point" and "Scoop" star. "So what can I do? I'd love to have a wonderful tour de force part with Diane Keaton but the problem is… doing what?"
Though Allen and the "Annie Hall" actress, 65, may have made a great team in his films from the '70s, he doesn't believe they'd still have the same sizzle.
"Nobody wants to see two septuagenarians get it on," he explains. "People may say they do but they don't. They want to see Leonardo DiCaprio chasing after Scarlett Johansson. They don't want me flirting with Diane Keaton."
Justin Bieber is no longer rocking that famous swooped haircut, but it's not gone forever. Madame Tussauds wax museums in New York and London unveiled the waxen Biebs, sporting his former 'do. A Bieber figure has been added to Madame Tussauds Amsterdam as well.
It looks like the young crooner has also grown a bit taller since Madame Tussauds measured him for the wax figure, but the New York museum's general manager, Bret Pidgeon, told E! News that they didn't stress about that. "We're capturing a moment in time," Pidgeon explained. "Capturing what he looks like right now."
It seems the teen phenom approves: "TWINS!" he tweeted, along with a photo of him embracing his inanimate doppelganger.
That’s not the only good news for this Canadian singer, who recently celebrated his 17th birthday. According to Pop Dust, Bieber’s 3-D extravaganza of a movie, “Never Say Never," has taken the teen pop music movie crown from Miley Cyrus. It's sold more than $70 million in ticket sales, beating the previous record of $65 million, held by the “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds” movie.
Mom-to-be Alyssa Milano is singing the blues — the actress has announced that she's expecting a baby boy!
Milano, who revealed in February that she and husband David Bugliari are expecting their first child, shared the good news on her website, writing, "As fun as it was reading all of your gender predictions on Twitter, I’m really bad at keeping secrets and had to share (not to mention, I was bound to unintentionally slip at some point). David and I are elated to announce that we are having a baby boy. We can’t wait to meet him. Boys names, anyone?"
As Marquee reported last month, Milano admitted that she hated surprises and couldn’t wait to find out the sex of her child.
James Franco was the one "freak" absent from Saturday's reunion of the "Freaks and Geeks" cast, but of course he ended up being one of the most-discussed.
Early on in the proceedings, Franco sent a videotaped message "explaining" that he couldn't attend because he and Anne Hathaway were preparing to host the Oscars, Variety reports.
Nevertheless, the cast remembered his time on the much-beloved-but-quickly-canceled series. The actor was known for carrying around books like Proust and "Dante's Inferno" on set, and apparently developed a backstory to his character, Daniel Desario, that included a past of having been abused as a child, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Is it time to chill out and cut Charlie Sheen some slack?
That’s what one feisty blogger says today. She says she’s shocked – just SHOCKED that people are actually surprised Charlie has gone off the deep end. She says, “…this system is going to churn out the occasional nut who thinks it’s acceptable to go on drunken rampages and publicly insult his boss.”
Me? I’m not so sure I agree – but I’m interested in hearing her out! She’ll be right here with us today in a headline-making "Showbiz" Newsmaker interview.
