Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to lead Mel Gibson's new Viking epic after the two movie stars met in secret to discuss the ambitious project last year.

The movie star/director, who wowed film fans with ancient Aramaic in "The Passion of The Christ" and Mayan in "Apocalypto", explained he was tackling old English and Norse as he fulfills his childhood dream of making an ultra-viole...

Celebrity is something of a double edged sword. On one hand you could make millions and be adored by fans all over the world, but it also means the loss of privacy and the constant nitpicking of the mainstream critics. One slip up is all it takes for your face and words to be scattered over magazines and blogs, but sometimes the controversies are worth being taken to task for.

Here's a look at some of the celebrities who lost their mind or temper at the wrong time, and whether or not they have managed to bounce back from the incidents. What do you think of these moments in celeb history...

What is it about Aussies that Americans find so fascinating? Is it the cute accents? The laid-back attitudes? The "party animal" reputations? It could be a mix of all of these traits. It could also be because, although we speak the same language and our cultures have many similarities, many of us know very little about Australia. That strange yet familiar vibe makes those down under denizens appear exciting and mysterious - an irresistible combo!

Since Americans are also fascinated with celebrities, it's no surprise that so many awesome Aussie entertainers have found fame in the U.S. ...

Borat
With all the excitement surrounding the upcoming Oscar awards, it is easy to overlook the animals that play such an important role in movies. Although animals are an integral part of some of the most acclaimed films, their well-being and safety are sometimes neglected.

American Humane, the authority behind the "No Animals Were Harmed" end credit disclaimer on film and TV productions, applauds those nominated movies that included animal-safety monitoring as part of their production process -- but calls attention to those that did not.

The following Oscar-nominated films, which wer...

A lot of strange, crazy and even predictable things happened in the celebrity world during 2006; however, no one was prepared for the racial tensions and outbursts from well-known and respected actor/director Mel Gibson and Seinfeld star Michael Richards.

No stranger to debatable material, Mel began the year shooting his latest controversial epic, Apocalypto, about the end days of the Mayan civilization. And in May he pointed his finger at President Bush, comparing the U.S. leader to the barbaric Mayans portrayed in his new film.

But it was Mel's barbaric ways that would steal th...

Disney will not release Mel Gibson's latest movie in the wake of his drunken anti-Semitic tirade, it has been reported. The studio was to release the actor's new project Apocalypto on December 8, but has now decided to offer it to other distributors, according to Fox news.

Among the potential studios that could pick up the film is Lions Gate, an independent company which has picked many unwanted movies in the past. Most famously it released Michael Moore's controversial 9/11 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 when Miramax was prevented from putting it out because of its agreements with Disney...
