Hit animated children's film "How to Train Your Dragon" is roaring back to the big screen - movie executives are planning a 3-D sequel for 2013.

The DreamWorks picture, which featured characters voiced by Gerard Butler, Jay Baruchel and America Ferrera, fired up the worldwide box office when it was released earlier this year, banking almost $500 million globally.

Hot Legs: Official 'Lara Croft' Model Alison Carroll At 'The Kid' Premiere

Alison Carroll
Tomb Raider model Alison Carroll showed quite a bit of leg at the premiere of "The Kid" in London on Wednesday. In fact, the headline shouldn't read 'hot legs,' it should read hottest legs! The thigh-high slit on her blue dress was so steep, it had to be held together with safety pins!

Despite Alison being the real-life model that represents the video game heroine, it seems like each year there's a new rumor of who will take over the role from Angelina Jolie, who starred as the sexy Brit in the 2001 feature and it's sequel in 2003, "Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life."

In 2009 it was Megan ...

Facinelli's Carlisle Cullen in the film franchise 'beat' Eddie Murphy's monstrous performance in "Vampire in Brooklyn" and Gerard Butler's turn in "Dracula 2000" to land at the top of the dis-list.

But he refuses to feel sorry for himself. In a tweet to fans, he writes, "YES! I finally came in Number 1 in something! Thank you Mr. Travers. As Carlisle is a compassionate humanitarian, and anti-vampire...

Jennifer Aniston
Actress Jennifer Aniston is sniffing the sweet smell of success - she's preparing to launch her debut fragrance.

The former "Friends" star is fulfilling a long-time dream by creating her own signature scent, after turning down a number of offers over the years to become a celebrity spokeswoman for established perfume lines.

And she insists she's very proud of her creation, which she has dubbed Lolavie, because she's had a say in every aspect of production.

She tells Britain's Harper's Bazaar, "I'd been asked to put my name to many, but I wanted to be involved in the process, from the ini...

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston is really getting around these days - promoting her film "The Bounty Hunter," that is. She arrived at the German premiere in Berlin yesterday wearing a beige dress that hugged her in all the right places. And of course Gerard Butler was right by her side. The two are inseparable lately.

Jen recently angered her former "Friends" co-star David Schwimmer after she insisted on David Letterman's show that she doesn't know who his fiancée is.

Schwimmer will wed his girlfriend of two years Zoe Buckman, and he is reportedly refusing to speak to Aniston over the comment, accordin...

Gerard Butler
Scottish movie star Gerard Butler literally starved himself for a month in a bid to get back into shape after a series of movies left him battered and bruised.

The "300" hunk went on "a cleanse" for 16 days and then signed up for a strict 500-calories-a-day diet.

The "Bounty Hunter" star explains, "It was so depressing...In the morning I think I had half a grapefruit and that was pretty much about it until two (in the afternoon) - and I was training as well. I had a lot of injuries from all these movies... so I wanted to slim right down and kinda start building from there."

Gerard Butler shifted from "Bounty Hunter" to "How to Train Your Dragon" in a handful of days, continuing his breakneck pace of filmmaking that has rarely paused since "300."

Butler says the new animated film teaches a valuable lesson of patience and tolerance. He voices the father to the main character, who is played by Jay Baruchel.

Jays is excited to be in a children's film, recalling the ones he saw as a child still stick with him to this day - and the chance to star in a feature that could resonate with today's children was one of the reasons he became an actor.

Jennifer Aniston & Gerard Butler Get Frisky On The Red Carpet (Sure They're Not Dating)

3/18/2010 1:20pm EDT
Butliston look like they were having the time of their lives at "The Bounty Hunter" premiere in New York City yesterday. Not surprisingly, Jen couldn't seem to keep her hands off the "300" hunk and even looks like she may be a little aroused (or just chilly).

Unfortunately, Jennifer Aniston & Gerard Butler's new film is being bashed by critics. According to AP critic Jake Coyle, "Director Andy Tennant overstuffs the film with constant overlaid music, impatient cutting and a generally unsettled approach...'The Bounty Hunter' has little to offer besides some face-time with handsome stars." ...

Gerard Butler And Jennifer Aniston 'Faked Engagement' To Fool Mom

Gerard Butler
Scottish actor Gerard Butler enlisted the help of his "The Bounty Hunter" co-star Jennifer Aniston to play a cruel prank on his mother - by pretending they had eloped.

The pair sparked rumors of a romance after sharing the screen in the new comedy and jetting off on holiday to Mexico to celebrate Aniston's recent 41st birthday.

Both stars have denied they are in a relationship, but Butler used the press stories to fool his mother into thinking he had proposed to the former "Friends" actress.

He explains, "I took the phone and said, 'Hey mum, I'm a little busy right now, I'm marrying J...

Gerard Butler's 'Bounty' Burrito Feast

3/17/2010 9:30am EDT
Gerard Butler
Gerard Butler was sick on the set of "The Bounty Hunter" after eating 27 burritos for one scene. The Scottish star was required to munch on the snack for one funny scene, but the film's director re-shot the moment 27 times.

And Butler was so determined to make each take as real as possible; he ate a fresh burrito every time - which made him violently ill.

He says, "It's funny because there's a way to learn to eat on camera when you just put small amounts in your mouth and make it look like you're eating a lot. I'm not very good at that so that first day, I literally had 27 burritos."

When I read the results of the Oscars, I was not terribly surprised by any of the winners. I felt that a lot of the films and actors that were played up very politically in the entertainment industry were the ones that walked away with the coveted statues.

While I have seen many of the various movies that were up for awards there are several I’m ashamed I still haven’t seen like “Precious,” “Crazy Heart,” and “The Hurt Locker.” Of the three “The Hurt Locker” remains at the top of my list, just because I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.

This week I did not hit the movies, but ...

Jennifer Aniston braved the cold in a short silver mini dress at the London "Bounty Hunter" premiere yesterday. We wish she'd lose the black jacket, but people around her were wearing coats and scarves so it must have been a wee bit chilly.

Jennifer and Gerard Butler attended the event looking quite cozy on the red carpet. The actress fueled speculation about their relationship when she pulled Butler in for a close embrace while posing for pictures at the U.K. premiere. So are they or aren't they? Maybe she just needed a warm embrace?

Actor Gerard Butler only learned he had a deformed ear when he had to shave his head for his role opposite Angelina Jolie in the "Tomb Raider" sequel.

He tells the upcoming issue of Men's Journal magazine he was born with "sticking-out ears," but his right one was pressed back in following surgery to save his hearing following a bout of tinnitus.

Butler says, "I didn't realize it until I had to shave my head for ...

Reese Witherspoon and Renee Zellweger attended a Vera Wang store opening in West Hollywood yesterday looking almost like sisters in strapless purple and burgundy ensembles. Renee is rumored to be in negotiations for a third "Bridget Jones's Diary." If so, she doesn't look like she's gaining weight for the role like she did for the two previous films.

Renee was said to have infuriated producers after opting out of piling on the pounds to play the hapless full-figured Bridget again. Reports suggested she demanded the script was altered so the British character would have a smaller frame. But...
