How’s this for irony: the forthcoming "Captain America" film won’t be shot in America.
Not exactly patriotic, but the comic book icon, who’s superhero costume is made up of the U.S. flag, will be shot overseas instead of in Los Angeles because it’s more economical. Marvel Studios begins shooting “Captain America: The First Avenger,” which stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson and Hugo Weaving in July in London, where the story is partially set.
But the studio, which was acquired by Walt Disney Co. last year, decided it was easier to do things this way because the story is set in Europe and will feature several scenes in London, but those tax incentives sure sweetened the deal.
So what was it that sent Bret Michaels', um, heart racing?
A naughty “Skin-e-max” flick.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the Poison frontman and current Celebrity Apprentice finalist ’fessed up to what he was watching on television when his near-fatal brain hemorrhage happened last month.
“I was going back and forth from SportsCenter to ‘Busty Cops 3,’ ” the rocker admits. “Maybe that’s what did it!"
You don’t mess with the Bieber.
After a bit of dust-up earlier this week because the pint-sized pop star garnered a BET Award for Best New Artist, he took to twitter, saying that “music is color blind.”
Now he’s got another defender, Sean Diddy Combs.
The hip-hop mogul says that the awards are important to hip-hop because it shows artists in the “right light.”
“But the beauty of BET is," he added, "if Justin Bieber’s hot, then he deserves to be on that stage. Sometimes, at other award shows, the color of your skin or the type of music you make takes away from getting the accolade you deserve.”
It’s highly doubtful that we’ve ever seen this play on the gridiron.
Julie Bowen swung by “Lopez Tonight,” on Monday and told host George Lopez how she nurses her twin 1-year-old sons, John and Gus. The 40-year-old “Modern Family” mom even showed him a picture, to demonstrate just how she pulls this off.
“It’s like two little liposuction machines on you,” she said. “They suck the fat out of you. They call it the ‘double football hold.’ You hold one here, and here [gesturing to her breasts], like two footballs... They’re doing God’s work right there, helping me return to my birth weight.”
Want to be Robert Pattinson’s girlfriend? (C'mon, who doesn’t?)
Well if you do – and assuming he really isn’t dating his “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart – there may be a small problem.
According to co-star Ashley Greene, the Brit – who has to fight off legions of female fans near and far - just “doesn’t understand girls.”
Greene, 23, said she’s probably the only woman who has yet to fall for him in the June/July issue of Seventeen magazine.
“When I met Rob, I didn’t think twice about him. He’s really attractive, but that chemistry wasn’t there,” she said.
Justin Bieber – (insert the shrill screams of millions of young girls here) – says he wouldn’t hesitate when the mood to kiss hits.
“I mean, if you’re driving you make a little stop at, you know, the Wal-Mart rest stop ... you're good,” Bieber says to the co-hosts of the Johnjay and Rich, a San Diego-based radio show.
He hasn’t tested that out yet in the new Range Rover his mentor Usher bought him for his 16th birthday, but when he does plant a kiss on a lucky lady, he says she’ll be, well, lucky.
“I'm a good – I’m a great kisser,” the heartthrob says, adding that he’s made out with “a couple chicks.”
