Skunks Invade 'Grown Ups 2' Set

July 28th, 2012 11:00am EDT
Grown Ups
"Grown Ups 2" is causing a stink in Massachusetts. Adam Sandler has been shooting the sequel to his hit 2010 comedy in the North Shore region of the state, but the crew ran into trouble after building a sound stage in Phillips Park.

Several skunks have moved into a group of trees planted for the film and have been stealing food from the catering tables.

Swampscott local animal control officer Diane Treadwell is in charge of removing the animals. She told the Boston Herald, "They built the set on marshland near a wooded area and the set isn't sealed off so the skunks come in and out as the...

Salma Hayek endured a "difficult pregnancy" during which she nearly lost her baby and was then told her little girl would be born with Down syndrome, according to her husband.

Linda Evangelista Accuses Ex-Lover Francois-Henri Pinault Of Pushing Her To Terminate Pregnancy

May 3rd, 2012 11:53pm EDT
Linda Evangelista and Francois-Henri Pinault
Supermodel Linda Evangelista has sensationally accused Salma Hayek's fashion mogul husband of advising her to have an abortion after she fell pregnant with his child.

The former runway beauty made the headline-grabbing claim in New York's Manhattan Family Court on Thursday as the first day of her child support trial with Francois-Henri Pinault got underway.

Evangelista turned to the legal system last year when she filed papers requesting a massive $46,000-a-month to support her five-year-old son Augustin James, who was conceived while Pinault was briefly separated from Hayek.

Cameron Diaz Looks A Bit Old Lady-ish At CinemaCon

April 26th, 2012 10:30am EDT
Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz turns 40 in August, but that doesn't mean she has to look like it! She went to CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday, and something about her hair and dress make her appear older than her age (at least by Hollywood standards).

We've always loved Cameron's blonde locks, but the short 'do with side swept bangs isn't her best look. The plain black dress isn't too bad, but it's not very exciting either.

Many female stars over 40 look great, including Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Salma Hayek. We hope when Cameron reaches the milestone birthday this summer that she remembers age ...

Salma Hayek
Actress Salma Hayek considered adoption before meeting her husband, billionaire businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, because she was so eager to become a mother.

The Oscar-nominated Frida star struggled with love throughout much of her life and when she reached her 30s, the Mexican beauty admits she was so set on having a family, she looked into ways on how to become a single mum.

She tells Marie Claire magazine, "I was trying to figure out how to have a child on my own. I came to terms with saying, '(Love) might not happen,' and I have to be OK with that.'"

But Hayek's luck turned when s...

David Beckham Joins New Burger King Campaign

David Beckham
David Beckham has joined the stars of a new Burger King ad campaign in America by appearing in a dream sequence to promote the fast food chain's new smoothie line.

The soccer star and model becomes the fantasy figure of both a check-out assistant and her male manager when he appears at the counter of a BK diner in the ad.

The new campaign hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons earlier this week when a promo featuring Mary J. Blige singing about Burger King's new fried chicken menu item was released online prematurely.

Blige and the chain's bosses were grilled by officials at African...

Salma Hayek spiralled into depression after she was blighted by acne as she tried to break into movies.

The sexy Latina is famed for her good looks, but she insists she reached rock bottom after suffering severe breakouts of spots on her face during her mid-20s.

And the star was so depressed, she turned to food for comfort - and piled on the pounds.

She tells Lucky magazine, "You want to talk about bad skin? I had acne. And this acne was so bad it sent me into severe, severe depression.

"Like I couldn't leave the house. The next stage with that sort of depression is food - too little or...

Antonio Banderas
Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek grew to hate each other as they traveled the world promoting Puss in Boots.

The couple conducted 739 interviews in 11 days when the film came out last year, and movie bosses gave them diplomas for enduring the promotional commitments patiently - but inside both Banderas and Hayek were ready to "kill each other."

Banderas reveals, "We travelled to nine countries, nine premieres, three different continents... It was fun and difficult too. It's just weird when you're doing interviews. Basically, they (reporters and interviewers) ask you the same question agai...

2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

Salma Hayek And Antonio Bandera
Salma Hayek didn’t want to tell her daughter she was the voice of Kitty Softpaws in the new Puss in Boots movie. She wanted to preserve the magic of animated movies. But just taking her daughter out to another movie exposed her.

“I was worried about that because it’s like the Santa thing in a way because she really thinks there’s cats there,” Hayek said. “I thought I had some time but I took her to see one movie and in the previews, I see his cat and I go, ‘Oh no, I have two seconds to break it to her.’ And before I could say anything, my character came on screen and I spoke.”

It turned o...

Zoe Saldana
We always talk about the fashion fails every week, so it's only fair we point out the celebrities that rocked their style. This week have a pair of Twilight stars and some beautiful women.

Zoe Saldana looked great in this pale dress, despite some of the accessories - we still don't get shoulder pads, and the stomach panel looks like a speedometer. But we like the open toe heels and the form-fitting cut really accents her physique.

Salma Hayek looked gorgeous at the Puss in Boots premiere, but her best accessory was her cute daughter, who you can see here.

Salma Hayek
Actress Salma Hayek had to prove she was tough enough to play the head of a drug cartel in Oliver Stone's upcoming movie Savages, because the director feared motherhood had turned her "all soft".

The Frida star has scaled down her work load since becoming a mother to four-year-old daughter Valentina and settling down with her husband Francois-Henri Pinault, and her comfortable home life had Stone worried she wasn't right for the leading role in the crime thriller.

Hayek tells Redbook magazine, "I'm playing the queen of a drug cartel in an Oliver Stone film. He asked if I'd gone 'all sof...
