Kate Upton talks pressure to lose weight, life on a farm, and begs boyfriend for a puppy

rs_634x808-140729062550-634.Kate-Upton-Elle-JR-72914

Leave it to Kate Upton to look like a bombshell in a turtleneck.

The 22-year-old model and actress graces the September issue of Elle U.K., out on newsstands August 1. For the shoot, Kate covers up in fall threads including a black turtleneck, a mod-inspired Prada jacket and inside the mag, an oversize fur coat thing that looks more like a very chic slanket, if you ask us.

Kate opened up about growing up as a Floridian farm girl to the glossy. "It made me very goal-oriented and focused. I'm not opposed to a hard day's work for a good outcome."

The blond beauty also got candid about suffering from occasional insecurities, like everyone else. "It's not like I look in the mirror and think, 'I'm killing it. My eyes are killing it.' No, a lot of times I'm puffy and bloated. I like myself in general, but there are days when you just don't," she said.

Kate also revealed that she's been under unfair pressure from agents, but remains totally unfazed. "Agents have put me under pressure to lose weight in the past. I would go on set and clients loved me. And then I would go into an agency and feel like crap about myself. They would say: 'Just lose five more [pounds]!' But I couldn't give a crap," she said. "I still don't."

Adrienne Bailon Slams Rob Kardashian: "He Was So Disloyal!"



The former Cheetah Girls star opens up about her relationship with Def Jam Records exec Lenny Santiago and her breakup with Rob Kardashian.

On the aftermath of Keeping Up With the Kardashians: “To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career. I probably realized that too late—not that it would’ve affected my decisions in terms of who I dated, but it would’ve affected my decision to appear on the show. At the time, I didn’t think anyone would even care. To this day, people will still say, ‘You ruined Rob’s life!’ and I’ll think, Damn, I was still playing with Barbie dolls when I met him.”

On suffering Rob Kardashian’s infidelity in the public eye: “It’s common knowledge that he cheated on me, and it always bothered me that people were like, ‘Pero, why couldn’t you forgive him?’ Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, ‘You’re disgusting, and I want nothing to do with you.’ But women, we’re supposed to be like, ‘He messed up. He made a mistake.’ He strategically planned things out so that he could cheat on me, and that was so disloyal.”

On going public with her new love, Def Jam Records exec Lenny Santiago:I wanted to let people know that we’re just private. Secret relationships are shady, and it’s never been that. We’re in a great place where negativity cast our way won’t affect us.”

'Dragonriders of Pern' Set Up as Movie Franchise at Warner Bros.


If I had to name one fantasy or sci-fi book series that I can’t believe hasn't been turned into a film or TV series yet, it would be Anne McCaffrey‘s Dragonriders of Pern. Actually, I did say this, and not even that long ago. The Pern books are a strange blend of fantasy and sci-fi, filled with great, well-defined characters, politics and scheming, and giant telepathic dragons. It’s stuff that might have been a hard sell ten years ago. In the wake of Game of Thrones and so many other sci-fi and fantasy successes on TV and in film, the time is right. And Warner Bros. has just optioned all of it.

Deadline reports the Pern deal, saying that new WB exec Drew Crevello, who worked on the X-Men series at Fox, is behind the deal. This option covers 22 novels.

There’s a lot about Pern that is pretty neat, but I won’t spoil the scope of all of it here. In short, the right creative team could build a Game of Thrones-style series out of these books. And because the novels are older, there is more room to take liberties in the adaptation, and push things only implied by the material into explicit reality.

The first books tell of a world that has fallen into an unusual conflict, in which an essentially feudal society supports a dwindling but still powerful class of warriors. The warriors’ power comes from the fact that they ride giant fire-breathing dragons, with which each rider has direct telepathic communication. Stories say the dragons once protected the planet from a periodic rain of all-consuming spores, but those rains haven’t taken place for decades. The dragons say most people, are no longer needed, their appetites unwelcome.

And then the spores return. Their renewed attacks coincide with the rise of a fiery young woman, Lessa, who becomes rider of the planet’s last young queen dragon. She rallies a tiny force of beasts to protect her charges from the spores, but faces exhaustion and impossible odds. And then she learns of another dragon ability, and a plan forms.

'Dragonriders of Pern' was once in development as a TV series for Warner Bros. under the guidance of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ showrunner Ronald D. Moore, but Moore parted ways with the company over major creative differences. And as recently as 2011, ‘X-Men’ and ‘Watchmen’ screenwriter David Hayter was tasked with writing a script for a film version of ‘Dragonflight,’ the first book in the ‘Dragonriders of Pern’ series, which was originally published way back in 1968 as the start of a trilogy.

No Apologies: An interview with Caitlyn Stasey



Google Caitlin Stasey. Go on. I’ll wait. If you’re feeling particularly masochistic, go ahead and type her name into Google News. A string of headlines should pop up, each more headache-inducing than the last: Caitlin Stasey bares boobs for Free the Nipple – then posts a string of outrageous tweets! Caitlin Stasey launches bizarre sexual Twitter rant! Caitlin Stasey slams Bindi Irwin for her stance on modesty!

And those are just the tame ones.

Stasey, an Australian actress best known for her roles on Reign and in Tomorrow, When the War Began, recently found herself on the receiving end of a tidal wave of misogynistic online abuse after gently calling out Bindi Irwin – daughter of the late Steve Irwin – on what seemed to be thinly veiled slut-shaming.

The Sphinx got a European makeover in this 'Exodus' set photo


The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, it seems that more and more people are sick of seeing Hollywood movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors being hired to play historical figures who almost certainly were not white.

As the publicity campaign for Exodus ramped up, so did complaints on social media. Recently, many of them pointed out the racist subtext of casting white actors to play kings and prophets while black actors were cast in minor roles like “Egyptian thief.”

It's like a second Dark Ages... Or White Ages.Collapse )

Robert Downey Jr. Is Onto Us! RDJ Calls Chris Evans By Internet Nickname Originated On Tumblr



At Comic-Con this weekend, Robert Downey Jr. was twice caught calling Chris Evans a "Dorito" during press interviews to promote the upcoming sequel to The Avengers. This, of course, surprised and delighted some fans on the Internet, as the nickname originated from a post on Tumblr earlier this year.

Soska Sisters to Direct Superheroine Movie



While the Wonder Woman and Black Widow movies remain just a hope in many a superheroine-adoring fan's heart, the Soska sisters have decided to do it for themselves with an adaptation of Painkiller Jane, a cop turned vigilante with fast-healing powers.

Created in 1995 by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada for Event Comics, Painkiller Jane already has a made-for-TV movie and a TV show dedicated to her, both on the SyFy Channel. Jane gained the ability to tolerate heaps of pain after being made as an undercover officer and subsequently tortured. In that sense, she's pretty grounded as far as superheroes go -- much more human than not.

Jen and Sylvia Soska are the twin Canadian helmers behind Dead Hooker in a Trunk, See No Evil 2, and American Mary. Their feminist takes on the horror genre and over-the-top body grossness have made them cult figures. There's no word yet on casting.

Elizabeth Berkley & Mario Lopez Have No Interest In Lifetime's Saved By The Bell TV Movie!



The two chatted about why they have no desire to see the upcoming unauthorized "Saved by the Bell" TV movie set to air on Lifetime.

Mario said, “Now, Elizabeth, you made headlines this week when you said you aren't the least bit curious about the ‘Saved by the Bell’ TV movie that's coming out, and I have to say, I’ve got to agree with you.”

Elizabeth asked, “You share that with me?” Mario replied, “One hundred percent.”

Elizabeth continued, “I feel like we know the lives we led, and I think they're taking it off of the unauthorized book by Dustin Diamond… so it's a little silly to give credence to that when we know the innocence and the joy that we shared.”

Berkley also spoke out about the way the media refers to pregnant women. Mario asked, “Not a big fan of the terms 'ready to burst'… or ballooning?”

Elizabeth responded, “No. I just feel like in our culture, people aren't really honoring a woman's journey through that time, it's really about, like bump watch, let's see how big she's getting. At what point did it become this kind of, like, sporting event to kind of judge where someone's at?"

The 11 (5) Greatest Reality Show Winners of All Time


As we plow through more seasons of "Big Brother," "So You Think You Can Dance," and "The Bachelor" this summer, it's hard not to ask what the merits of winning a reality competition are. Do we applaud manipulative prowess? Sheer talent? Sheer watchability? Every show is different, but -- with the exception of the last couple seasons of "SYTYCD" -- one thing is certain: There can only be one winner. And fans usually bathe that winner in a glorious light for eternity.

We got to thinking about our favorite reality shows and the winners who made them great. After narrowing down the options and reducing reality TV to its most phenomenal victories and players, we came up with this Top 11.

11. Sharon Needles - RuPaul's Drag Race

Sharon Needles, the first winner of "RuPaul's Drag Race" to feel like the undisputed champ, defined charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent but also brought an undervalued fifth element to RuPaul's glamordome: unpredictability. She was not only "beautiful, spooky, and stupid" (as she famously defined herself), but a provocateur who could deliver ferocity and a joke. Who can forget her bawdy, perfectly cuckoo impersonation of Michelle Visage in "Snatch Game"? If only her ex-beau Alaska Thunderf*ck could've won season five, we'd have a droll, dangerously sultry dynasty on our hands.

The rest under the cutCollapse )

Orlando Bloom Throws Punch at Justin Bieber

miranda-beiber-orlando-2910
Orlando Bloom took a swing at Justin Bieber early Wednesday morning in Ibiza, Spain, and Justin fled the restaurant ... this according to an eyewitness.

The eyewitness tells TMZ ... Orlando was in Cipriani restaurant which was packed with celebs, including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Diddy.

Listen closely as you watch the video. It sounds like Justin, in the middle of a shoving match, screams, "What's up bitch?"

You don't see Orlando swing, but the eyewitness tells us that's exactly what happened.


The backstory is almost legendary ... Justin partied with Orlando's then-wife Miranda Kerr after a 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show in NYC and they got very VERY close. And in April of this year, Orlando was hanging out with Justin's on-and-off GF Selena Gomez. So the bad blood is flowing.

Gay diver Matthew Mitcham was surprised when Tom Daley came out



Australian diver Matthew Mitcham, the only openly gay male athlete at the 2008 Summer Olympics, is not even the only out diver at this summer's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Also diving is Britain's Tom Daley who came out last year and has since gone public with his relationship with Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

Mitcham says he was 'as surprised as anyone else when Daley, 20, posted his coming out video on YouTube.

'I’d even had dinner with him a month before it happened and I never knew anything,' Mitcham tells CNN. 'I totally understand with how young he is and, growing up in the public eye, it would’ve been extremely hard.

'I felt very fortunate that I didn’t get famous until after I had well and truly established my sexual identity, whereas he’s been in the spotlight since he was 13. It’s a really hard position to be in so I totally commend and support how he did it and when he did it.'

Mitcham has had supportive words for fellow Aussie athlete Ian Thorpe, a retired swimmer, who came out publicly earlier this month after years of speculation about his sexuality.

'It must have been a very harrowing ordeal,' Mitcham told the Sydney Morning Herald earlier this month. '... It took him 15 years to change his answer [to the question of his sexuality], which is a perfect indicator of his struggle.'

Wesley Snipes Wants 'Blade 4' to Happen

'The Expendables 3' star Wesley Snipes is open to returning
and jokes about a sequel where 'Blade' chases the 'Twilight' kids.
NEMHNG0VbSjtQQ_1_b
Wesley Snipes headed down to San Diego this weekend to promote his action-packed sequel The Expendables 3 at Comic-Con 2014. In two separate interviews, the actor addresses the possibility of reprising one of his most iconic roles, the vampire-killer Blade.
While it doesn't seem that any definitive plans are in place yet, the actor told MTV that he would be open to returning for Blade 4.
"I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then. I think we're better at making that kind of a film now. Some of the things we did in the early parts of the franchise were experimental and now they've become customary in a lot of the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations."
In a separate interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor joked that the sequel should follow the Daywalker as he hunts down the Twilight vampires.
"Blade chasing the Twilight kids around? Hey man, there's always a possibility, and I'm open to it. There have been rumors around that we may explore the opportunity, so give me one more shot! I've gotten a little bit better, and I think we can add a little flavor to it."
Back in May 2013, Marvel Studios reacquired the rights to Blade and other properties such as The Punisher, Ghost Rider and Daredevil. Later that month, we reported that Marvel is developing a Blade reboot, but that would essentially mean that we won't see Wesley Snipes return to reprise his famed character, which he played in 1998's Blade, 2002's Blade 2 and 2004's Blade: Trinity.
Would you rather see Wesley Snipes return in Blade 4, or a new Blade reboot? Chime in with your thoughts below.
Blade was released August 19th, 1998 and stars Wesley Snipes, Stephen Dorff, Kris Kristofferson, N'Bushe Wright, Donal Logue, Udo Kier, Arly Jover, Traci Lords. The film is directed by Stephen Norrington.
