One of the world's most attractive man, the producer of Academy award wining "The Departed" Brad Pitt has proved a real life hero another time. This time he heroically rescued an extra during the shooting of his new film "World War Z" from being trampled.
As a report by The Scottish Sun, Pitt, who is staring as a United Nations employee in the zombie apocalypse film, was filming a scene in which 700 extras tear through George Square in Glasgow, Scotland, on Wednesday. During the scene, a woman fell down, putting herself in danger of being run over by her fellow extras. But Pitt, a real-life hero, swooped in and brought her to her feet.
"Lots of people hurt themselves, and Brad came to the rescue of a woman who slipped," a witness told the paper of the fleeing-from-zombies scene. "I don't think she could believe it when Brad picked her up. He didn't have time to speak to her as it was mid-shoot. But she said afterwards how grateful she was, despite having a badly-grazed knee.”
Other extras also received "bumps and scrapes" during the elaborate take. After a string of injuries occurred on set, filming was paused for a "safety talk," The Sun reported. The sci-fi thriller "World War Z" will be released in December 2012. Other film coming that year is "Cogan's Trade." He is also the producer of those films.
MTV"S Sunday night's Video Music Awards ceremony has seen some good performances as well some unexpected but funny occurrences like the one Lady Gaga did. The Award ceremony starts with Lady Gaga delivering a long monologue casting her Male alter ego Jo Calderone as a jilted lover left behind by his famous ex. But it did not surprised but it wasn't the act that viewers might have been expecting. But it is Gaga, 25, and her career is littered with theatrics. More often than not, she's skirted the line between entertainment and controversy, but her cross-dressing bit as "Joe Calderone" was as tired and worn-out as the gratuitous guitar solos that clutter "You and I."
Dressed in drag as her male alter ego, she crossed with her VMA opening was the one that separated excess from eye-rolling. Her Calderone character came off as little more than an extra from "The Outsiders," or maybe she was just referencing MTV's "Jersey Shore," strutting around the stage with cigarette in hand and a tension-less monologue that was about nothing more than Gaga herself. "What's with the hair? At first it was sexy and now I'm just confused," Gaga as Calderone said to forced laughter, likely echoing many-a-viewer's thoughts.
Among other singers Britney Spears and Beyoncé onstage together; Gaga herself was backed by a legendary rock guitarist; Adele pitting a stripped-down stage show against the likes of surprise performers Jay-Z and Kanye West's pyrotechnics; and legendary grunge trio Nirvana name-checked by Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Chris Brown like it was 1991. It was totally a female night. This year Selena Gomez has experienced a new role as she interviewed the participants including her boyfriend Justin Bieber and enjoyed the show with different angle, off course she sang too.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers, 7 Grammy Award winner American rock band that was formed in Los Angeles in 1983, is going to release their new album today entitled, “I’m With You,” today August 29. This will be their first rock album that makes use of high-resolution source audio technology that optimizes the sound quality for iTunes Store customers. The earlier album released by them is "Stadium Aradium" five years ago.
To promote the new album the band will be performing the new songs, as well as some old hits, in a live performance that will be broadcast to select movie theaters around the world. The promotion will be worldwide too as they are going to start a world tour in September.
Critics are now pleased to see the work the band is doing. One such critic, Sarah Rodman of the Boston Globe said of the album, “With its blend of hard rock, funk, pop, punk, disco, psychedelia, and hip-hop, the album offers a few standouts, including the refreshingly bright and Beatles-evoking “Happiness Loves Company,” the sinuous “Did I Let You Know,” and the expansive “Brendan’s Death Song,” which moves from pastoral acoustic picking to percussive maelstrom.” Rodman also found that some of the vocals have a tendency to be “hit or miss” however added that in the end, “If you’ve come this far with the Peppers, you’re with them.”
Other albums that are going to be released by the artist and band like James Taylor,Lenny Kravitz, and the Spin Doctors.
"Clueless," "Wet Hot American Summer," "Anchorman," "40 Year-Old-Virgin," "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers," star Paul Rudd, 42, is not an idiot in his personal life at all as we see in "Our Idiot Brothers." This actor and producer is one of the greatest of his kind especially comic in Hollywood. He is unafraid of embracing slightly dorky characters who make people laugh and have enjoyment.
In his new film, "Our Idiot Brother" opening on Friday, he embraces his inner hippie and shares the screen with three high-powered actresses (Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emily Mortimer) playing his neurotic New York sisters. His character -- the under-achieving, homeless, Croc-wearing brother Ned -- wreaks havoc in their lives. Rudd recently sat down with Reuters to talk about portraying the easy-going Ned, the joys of tie-dyed T-shirts and why he's not shy about kissing dogs.
Paul Rudd in "Our Idiot Brothers"
He said whenever asked whether "Our Idiot Brothers" is a broad comedy, "Not at all. There's lots of drama. You hear the title and see the main character with his beard and long hair, but I don't think Ned's an idiot. He's a gentle soul, and makes some idiotic decisions -- there's no getting around that. But we wanted to make it very clear he's living his life a certain way, and it's a conscious decision. He has an ethic he subscribes too, and it's not always easy for him. The cracks show in some scenes, and that's important. You don't want it to look like he's just out to lunch."
In "Our Idiot Brother" that hits the big screen on Friday August 26, Rashida Jones plays the role of Cindy and she is a girlfriend of Zooey Deschanel, playing the role of Natalie. But they are lesbian and that earns mixed comments from various critics as Francisco Cronicle says it "really funny and true to life". Boston Globe even goes so far as to call it as, "emotionally bogus."
Leaving all this the "Park and Recreation" star Rashida Jones are advised by Natalie Portman about how skillfully a lesbian kiss can be given as she had experienced the lesbian kissing in "Black Swan."
"I'm friends with Natalie and I asked her [what to expect]," says Rashida. "She was like, 'Dude, it's awkward to make out with your friends - I'm just warning you right now. It's super awkward!"
"It was totally fun," says Rashida. "I mean, it was slightly awkward, only because Zooey and I have known each other for a long time. It's kind of weird to kiss your friends. But, you know, she's so pretty - she doesn't make it that hard!" "I should give [Zooey] a name, right?" adds Rashida. "I would just call her 'Softy.' She's soft... very soft."
The full cast members in "Our Idiot Brothers" are:
"Man in Black" star Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are still together and it is confirmed through a number of sources. There was a rumour that they would go for a separation. InTouch Weekly confirmed the news on Monday August 22. Just a day after the news they were seen out in public smiling and laughing, and the Bieb even wrote about the happy couple on his Twitter page. And, the Bieb doesn't lie. The 17-year-old star, who's friends with the couple's teen son Jaden, wrote on his page: "Will and Jada are one of the best couples ever. #FACT #real".

He went on to tweet eight more comments throughout the day promising they're very much still together with #ItsAllLies tacked on the end of each remark.
Eventually, Will and Jada released a strange joint statement, dispelling the rumors: "Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact."
Even yesterday the couple was spotted out having a blast together and smiling for the cameras. Convincing, right? The rumour game is going round will, as a few months earlier he was rumored dead while shooting on a hill in New Zealand.

It is a genre that is very geared towards males," she added.

Barcelona'sCesc Fabregas made a winning debut as a substitute
for Barcelona against Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup on
Wednesday, just three days after shifting from Arsenal.
The 24-year-old Spanish World Cup winner came on as a substitute for Pedro at the 82nd minute, just after Real had equalised at 2-2, but Lionel Messi grabbed a late volley to give the European champions a 5-4 aggregate triumph.
“I’m very pleased. It’s a great start winning and with such positive sensations,” Fabregas told Spanish state television as Barca’s players paraded the trophy around the Nou Camp.
Cesc Fabregas came on for Pedro in the 82nd minute in his team’s Super Cup match against Real Madrid Fabregas returned to the club he left in 2003 on Monday after one of the most drawn out transfer sagas in recent years, when he completed a move which could cost Barca up to 39 million euros ($56 million).
Having only won two trophies in his eight years with Arsenal, the 2004 league title and the 2005 FA Cup, Fabregas has now won his first piece of silverware in a Barca shirt after only three days. At the end of Wednesday night’s game, Fabregas, who had not had much chance to contribute to the action, was hacked down by Marcelo near the two dugouts.
A huge touchline melee between the Barca and Real Madrid squads ended with Marcelo, his Real team mate Mesut Ozil and Barca’s David Villa all being sent off.
“Football is very competitive, they are two of the biggest teams in the world, and the rivalry is great,” he added with a shrug. “These are things that always happen in football.”
