Leonardo DiCaprio On His ‘Django Unchained’ Character

leonardo dicaprio on django unchained

Leonardo DiCaprio is known as one of the best actors in Hollywood. (So where is his Oscar already?) From what I’ve seen in the previews, he does his usual amazing job in ‘Django Unchained.’ Leo talked to USA Today about the part and choosing directors to work with.

“[My character] is a self-indulgent, racist b*stard.” He found it in Django‘s slave-owning Calvin Candie, a character DiCaprio says “represents the moral decay of a corrupt South then.”

DiCaprio says that while he was in the mood to play a reprobate, “you have to be careful who you trust that power with. I’ve seen good material go to the wrong filmmaker, and it never captures what you believed the story was supposed to be. I guess you could say I target most of the directors I want to work with.”

Quentin Tarantino, the director of ‘Django Unchained,’ said he initially had been thinking of an older actor for the part.

“I was thinking, possibly, of an older actor. And then Leo read the script and liked it and we got together and started talking.”

How do you say no to Leonardo DiCaprio? I am really looking forward to ‘Django Unchained.’ Are you?

Russell Crowe Hangs Out With His Sons

russell crowe & sons hang out

Russell Crowe said his first priority after he finished his filming obligations was to try to put his family back together. The ‘Les Miserables‘ star is making good on that promise. Here’s Russell hanging out with his sons, Charles and Tennyson, and some family friends. I bet they’re glad to see their dad again!

There’s no sign of Russell’s wife, Danielle Spencer. I don’t think anyone should read too much into it. Hopefully it’s not a sign of trouble. The holidays can be a great time for families to reconnect. That may be the case for the Crowe clan.

Hot New Trailer: Ryan Gosling & Bradley Cooper ‘Place Beyond The Pines’

Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper teamed up for the big screen in ‘The Place Beyond The Pines.’ I have to say, it looks fantastic! Ryan plays a guy faced with unexpected fatherhood. When he finds out he had a child with an ex-girlfriend (played by Eva Mendes), he’s determined to do the right thing. For Ryan, that means breaking the law.

Bradley, meanwhile, is a police officer investigating his crimes. It looks like both Ryan and Bradley do an amazing job in their roles. And this must be where real-life couple Ryan and Eva met. Awww… Does this look good to you?

Lance Armstrong Sued Over Doping Allegations Story

sunday times suing lance armstrong

And the hits just keep on coming for Lance Armstrong. In 2006, London’s The Sunday Times paid the cyclist about $550,000 (600,000 pounds) after Lance sued them for libel when they printed allegations about him doping. Now that the USADA has determined that Lance did, indeed, illegally use performance-enhancing drugs, The Sunday Times is suing him. The paper wrote a letter to Lance’s lawyers and published some excerpts.

“It is clear that the proceedings were baseless and fraudulent. Your representations that you had never taken performance enhancing drugs were deliberately false. The Sunday Times is now demanding a return of the settlement payment plus interest.”

The paper is suing for more than $1.6 million. Well, you can’t really blame the paper, can you?

Lindsay Lohan Angry With ‘Scary Movie 5′ Producers

charlie sheen & lindsay lohan scary movie 5

Have you seen the trailer for ‘Scary Movie 5‘? I’ve never seen one of these movies, but the celebrity cameos alone seem to be worth checking out! Of course Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen’s cameos are included in the trailer. TMZ reports Lindsay was NOT happy about the footage. In the original script, when Lindsay screams and points at the TV, she’s supposed to be pointing to herself in the movie ‘Herbie: Fully Loaded.’

Instead, the producers put footage of her leaving court with the crawler “Probation Revoked.” Lindsay claims she was supposed to give the final okay for whatever producers put in, but she didn’t okay THAT. She also reportedly says this is the producers getting “payback” for holding up production and trashing her trailer. Lindsay is said to be consulting with attorneys to see if this is breach of contract.

Check out the trailer. I can see why Lindsay may not find it funny, but… honestly… it is. It’s probably not worth the money to go after the producers.

Jessica Alba & Haven Hit The Shops

jessica alba & haven shopping

Jessica Alba did some last-minute holiday shopping with Haven in tow. That sling is a life-saver, isn’t it? Jessica was able to remain hands-free while holding Haven. Looks like Jessica also had some help with a friend or a nanny.

Haven’s getting pretty big, however. The other person was carrying her for a while, but she’s probably too big for one person to carry all day. Haven’s over a year old now (she turned one last August). It seems like we were just hearing her birth announcement! I bet she has fun chasing Honor around the house.
