And now at an award function, Katrina helped Ranbir Kapoor’s mom Neetu Singh overcome her last minute stage fears as she was very nervous about her performance with her son on the show.

Neetu, for the first time ever and after a gap of many years, has performed on stage with her son Ranbir.

According to reports, Neetu was extremely nervous about her dance as she was performing after a gap of so many years.

Katrina Kaif, who happens to be bonding well with Ranbir Kapoor, is believed to have come to rescue his mother.

Apparently, when Katrina found out about Neetu’s stage fear, she went up to her and tried boosting her morale up with lots of words of encouragement which helped Neetu overcome her fears.Rumor suggests that Katrina had boosted up Neetu’s morale with words of encouragement and helped her shred away the fears.

Katrina apparently heard her out and then gave her words of advice on dance.

She also shared her secret on how to manage with the audience, if dance steps were forgotten during performances. Well, that’s a very kind gesture from Katrina Kaif, maybe it’s because of the great relationship she shares with Ranbir Kapoor. What say?

The Screen Awards is scheduled to be aired on January 19, 2013.

Ranbir Kapoor loves to romance beautiful women on screen

Because it’s glamour world and usually in front of you are attractive, beautiful women and the moments in cinema are right now so real that you are really romancing in a way. There is a fine line, one should now, between real and reel, one should never cross it. But romance is something which I like.”

Chitrangada Singh says, for her, Inkaar is a love story!

Chitrangada Singh says, for her, Inkaar is a love story!

Chitrangada Singh

A lot is being said about the upcoming Chitrangada Singh, Arjun Rampal starrer Inkaar. While many consider the film as bold, because of the concept of the film, Chitrangada doesn’t think so. According to the pretty actress, the movie is not bold at all.

The actress said: “I don’t think the subject is bold anymore. I don’t know why people want to term it as bold when a lady wants to speak out for her rights or raise voice against wrong. On the contrary, I think, it’s fair if you are standing for your rights. I am very happy to do this film.”

According to the Kaafirana item girl, Inkaar is a love story. “For me Inkaaris basically a love story with modern settings & modern problems, where men and women are almost equal. But when there is power struggle problems creep in.”

But keeping the concept in mind, Inkaar easily appears to be a dark love story or the love story that has dark shades attached to it.

She said: “No, it’s not dark. The best part about love stories is the fights that happen between the two. Because that’s the most interesting and most honest part…Holding hands and saying ‘I love you’ is something we have seen several times but that is not the case in Inkaar and that is what sets apart this film. It’s about a woman who thinks ‘fine I was involved with this particular man at some point of time but it’s not fair if you are getting sexually harassed’. And it becomes very difficult for her to take a stance and raise voice against wrong, but she does. So, it may appear dark in the sense that Inkaar shows the ugliness of a relationship.”

The film deals with sexual harassment at workplace. And since that’s the concept, the actress says that women are expected to behave like men at office. “Mostly what happens is when a woman comes to a work place she is expected to be man. I don’t get this idea why a woman should be a man or behave like one? I should be allowed to be who I am. The respect I am asking is not for being a man but for being a woman. One has to respect that.”

“When a woman is falling short a man should make it up for her and vice-versa. It should be give and take kind of relationship. The beauty about this film is there are two perspectives for the same situation and how they are both right,”
she further adds.

Directed by Sudhir Mishra, Inkaar is set to release on 18th January 2013.

Taylor SwiftPutting her nose to the grindstone, Taylor Swift was hard at work in the studio on Tuesday (January 15) in Los Angeles.

The “Red” songstress posted a picture of herself to Instagram with the caption reading, “Somewhere in LA…”Perhaps inspired by her recent break up with Harry Styles, Taylor appears to be in the process of writing a song on her guitar.

This wouldn’t be the first time the 23-year-old has found inspiration in a break up. “I’ve always lived by the theory that if a guy doesn’t want me to write a bad song about him, he won’t do bad things,” she told Us Weekly in 2010. “And he shouldn’t, you know?”

Jessica Simpson set to star in new TV show

Grab a plate of Chicken of the Sea and pull a chair up to the TV! Jessica Simpson is returning to the small screen and not just in Weight Watchers commercials with Jennifer Hudson (but ladies are looking gooood). Simpson, who previously starred in her own reality show with ex-husband Nick Lachey, has revealed she is filming a new scripted pilot for NBC inspired by her life.

The 32-year-old singer, who shares an eight-month-old daughter Maxwell with her fiance Eric Johnson and is currently pregnant with their second child, told the Hollywood Reporter “I am so excited to work with Ben and NBC again, this time on a scripted comedy. I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life — so between the real-life elements and a great team of writers, I think we’ll have people laughing!”

Producer Ben Silverman, who is helping with the pilot, said “Jessica Simpson is truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops. From running a fashion empire to wrangling her public image as a new mom, we see Jessica’s character approach a variety of ‘everyday’ circumstances that will get audiences laughing out loud.” Jessica Simpson as Lucille Ball? Huh.

Jennifer Lawrence beats Meryl, won’t tell us her favourite curse word

Jennifer Lawrence beats Meryl, won’t tell us her favourite curse word

Jennifer Lawrence believes she isn’t experienced enough to give advice to other young actors. The Silver Linings Playbook star, who was recently nominated for her second Oscar and also won a Golden Globe Award on Sunday, turned down an offer to appear on the respected Bravo show Inside The Actors Studio with James Lipton because her acting style is unconventional.

The 22-year-old actress told Entertainment Weekly “Do you know how much that guy would hate me? ‘Tell me about your method?’ There is no method! I never know my lines! He would be horrified. I love that show but I’m not old enough. I’m not at a place yet where I can look back and think ‘Oh this how I….’ I’m not ready. And, please, I’m an animal.”

Whatever method she’s using is working. Lawrence is making the rounds on the late night show circuit following her win at the Globes on Sunday and appeared on David Letterman’s show last night, clarifying her most recent acceptance speech. Controversy erupted after many viewers believed Jennifer was slamming her fellow nominee Meryl Streep when Lawrence told the audience upon accepting the award on stage “I beat Meryl!”.

The line is actually from the film The First Wives Club and is used by Bette Midler’s character when she pretends to accept a Golden Globe. And AS IF any actress would be silly enough to make fun of Streep in Hollywood. They excommunicate you for that kind of stuff down there.

Some people, they rush and do it, but it works both ways.” But in this video made by TMZ.com, after Amber was bribed gifted with some Ninja Turtle ice cream, she said that her “husband loves Ninja Turtles”.

Megan Fox speaks out on Lindsay Lohan controversy

Megan Fox speaks out on Lindsay Lohan controversy

Actress Megan Fox insists she didn’t mean to “criticize or degrade” Lindsay by drawing comparisons between her former idol Marilyn Monroe and the Liz & Dick actress in a recent interview, in which Fox said she was no longer interested in following in the footsteps of the Monroe because her life was “negative” and she was “unreliable”.

Comparing the actresses, Fox told Esquire magazine “I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult. It’s like when you visualize something for your future. I didn’t want to visualize something so negative. She wasn’t powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay. She was an actress who wasn’t reliable, who almost wasn’t insurable…She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered. I’m not interested in following those footsteps.” Fox is currently in the process of having her Marilyn Monroe tattoo of the late actress’ face removed from her forearm.

The new mom, who gave birth to her first son Noah with husband Brian Austin Green in September, has now attempted to clarify her comments and insisted she thinks Lindsay is “gifted”. Writing on her Facebook page on Tuesday, Megan said “I attempted to draw parallels between Lindsay and Marilyn in order to illustrate my point that while Marilyn may be an icon now, sadly she was not respected and taken seriously while she was still living. Both women were gifted actresses, whose natural talent was lost amongst the chaos and incessant media scrutiny surrounding their lifestyles and their difficulties adhering to studio schedules etc. I intended for this to be a factual comparison of two women with similar experiences in Hollywood. Unfortunately it turned into me offering up what is really much more of an uneducated opinion. It was most definitely not my intention to criticize or degrade Lindsay. I would never want her to feel bullied, as she does not deserve that. I was not always speaking eloquently during this interview and this miscommunication is my fault.”

I think we’ve all learned a valuable lesson. Don’t get tattoos until you’re at least 50.

Selena Gomez takes a bite out of Peeta

Selena Gomez takes a bite out of Peeta

Selena Gomez left a party with Josh Hutcherson after they spent the night flirting. The newly single beauty, who split from her on/off boyfriend of two years Justin Bieber this month, was seen dancing with the The Hunger Games star at a Golden Globe Awards afterparty at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday night before later leaving the event together. A source told gossip website HollywoodLife.com, “She was dancing and flirting with Josh.” The insider claims that Selena seemed to have the approval of her good pal Vanessa Hudgens, who she attended the bash with and who previously dated Josh.

The eyewitness revealed, “[Vanessa] was there to witness it. Selena was dancing and having lots of fun and flirting with Josh. Vanessa needed to go to the bathroom and asked me where the restroom was, and I told them both [Vanessa & Selena] and they went. Josh followed them, and Selena and Josh left the Beverly Hilton together. Justin is in no way on her mind whatsoever.” Selena is said to have broken up with Justin, 18, because he was too needy for her. A source previously said: “Justin is super needy and can be a big baby around Selena. It’s hard for him to make real friends because he likes the temporary attention of strangers, but didn’t see how it hurt Selena.

“Selena didn’t feel Justin was respectful of their relationship. She was constantly catching him in positions with other girls that would make her uncomfortable. She would get super jealous,” the source explained. The couple broke up shortly after holidaying in Mexico where they had planned to ring in the New Year together but got into a huge argument on December 30 after Selena allegedly found text messages from other girls on his phone. Selena then fled back to the US. A source said that Justin reportedly told her before she left, “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!”

I don’t like the fact that I was a bully in a certain way and I don’t like the way that I came off,” Angel explained. “I came off as a bully. Thank you, and I love you.”

Sure, she apologized and recognized that her actions were juvenile but do you think that this is enough to make up for the damage done? Tell us what you think in the comments section and check out the apology video below.

Nicole Kidman Covers ‘Hollywood Reporter’ Sundance Issue

nicole-kidman-covers-hollywood-reporter
Nicole Kidman is gorgeous on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Sundance issue.

Here’s what the 45-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On turning down big studio movies: “I come from Australia, I was trained in indie movies. It’s an unconscious decision — it’s who I am. As an actor, you live and die by your choices. I don’t associate with mainstream films anymore. I don’t do so well in them, either. I guess I have a foot in both worlds. I’ve been offered some studio films this year and turned them down. They just didn’t align with who I am.”

On urinating in The Paperboy: “I just don’t find urination shocking. I think I peed in the beginning of Eyes Wide Shut, too. But then, I don’t find a lot of things shocking! Violence is a lot more shocking than sex – sex is primal.”

On her relationship with directors: “I do develop very powerful relationships with most of my directors. Gus Van Sant changed my career with To Die For. I’ll definitely work with Lars von Trier again. And [The Hours director] Stephen Daldry is like a soulmate. He was so kind to me when I was pregnant, even when I couldn’t do The Reader.”

The 32-year-old actress showed off her gorgeous complexion while chatting to the mag about her marriage and her family.Highlights from Miss Brewster’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Latina!

On her childhood:
“I call myself a Brazilian-American. Now I would say that. When I was living in Brazil I felt very American and when I was in America I felt very Brazilian. I always felt like a fish out of water. High school and middle school were really hard for me and we moved when I was 10, but once I got past those, I realized how lucky I was that my parents traveled with me and my sister. It broadened my perspective.”

On her marriage:
“It’s so amazing to have a husband in the business who can challenge me and we can talk about his work and my work and understand each other in that way. I love getting his feedback and he likes getting mine. And of course, that has pushed me more to consider producing in the future.”

On future family plans:
“I definitely want to have kids. I want two. I grew up with a sister, but I know Andrew would love boys, but I’ll take what I can get. One thing that I’ve always sort of loved and been enamoured by is the idea of having twins. My dad was a twin, so it runs in the family. Fingers crossed. So we’re thinking about having kids but I don’t know when it’ll happen. I feel very ready now.”

Lena Dunham Covers Interview February 2013

Lena Dunham Covers Interview February 2013

Lena Dunham Covers Interview February 2013She’s coming off a tremendous night full of victories at the Golden Globes and now Lena Dunham is rocking the cover Interview magazine’s February 2013 issue.

The “Girls” creator looked gorgeous in a black Mui Mui ensemble for the Gregory Harris shot front page while opening up about everything from directing to writing.Highlights from Miss Dunham’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Interview!

On being a writer-director:
“I think I’ve sort of made it all into one giant job where all of the parts feed one another. I remember going to see Les Misérables on Broadway as a kid. I was so jealous of the girl that got to play young Cosette, but I never had a moment where I was like, Oh, that’s something I could do. I just felt like, Oh, that’s what certain people can do. I also never got good parts in school plays, and it would incense me to no end, but I was like, ‘I’m not cut out for this.’ I started writing plays, and I would be all of the characters in my head, but I never auditioned or anything. It was only when I started making short films in college and I was looking for girls to play the me-ish parts that I thought, Well, maybe I’m just going to try doing this myself before somebody else comes in and handles it. For a long time my acting was just a marriage of convenience between me and these characters that I was writing”

On her “Girls” co-stars:
“It’s almost like when you’re young, your friends take on the romance role, and then guys take on the role of your friends later. I remember huge fights in college that were like, ‘You don’t want me to have a boyfriend because you don’t want me to be happy and not be around all the time!’ Those are the kinds of things that are really hard to imagine an older woman saying… But I’m so glad that those female friendships on the show worked for you, because that was the biggest thing for me-having all those interactions feel genuine. I wanted this show to fill in a gap in TV for women this age. I feel like there’ve been high-school shows—and My So-Called Life is one of them—that have been honest about what teenage girl friendship can be, that sort of Angela-Rayanne romance. That is all stuff that’s been captured really well in the high-school age range. But 24 to 25-that seems like an age that is so specific and that hasn’t been done.”

On writing from a male perspective:
“I didn’t want to write in guys who felt like girl fantasies of a good boyfriend or like a voodoo doll of ex-boyfriends whose lives I was trying to ruin. I wanted it to feel like guys that you would know who are a little weird. I do think girls in their twenties accept certain kinds of lesser treatment than they would at other times in their lives. They’re willing to experiment with what it means to be treated well. You know, what’s it like to have a guy who totally demeans one aspect of your life? For Hannah, at least, it’s an intellectual exercise.”
