Bryan CranstonBryan Cranston thinks that Godzilla would be "horrible" at making crystal meth.

The Breaking Bad actor, who sold the drug as Walter "Heisenberg" White in the series, joked about the monster not being able to make it at the premiere of his new movie at the Odeon in London's Leicester Square last night. "I think Godzilla would be horrible at making crystal meth. You've got to be very refined to be able to make it. He's a monster, you know, they have a very destructive nature," he said.

The 58-year-old actor, who stars alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen in the film directed by Gareth Edwards, also claims his character, nuclear scientist Joe Brody, is more like him than Walter White or Hal, who he played in Malcolm In The Middle: "They're all pretty different. I'm not like hal and I'm nothing like Walter White. Maybe this guy in this movie is most like me."

Gia Coppola Gary Oldman as Dracula

"I remember being on Dracula and Gary Oldman scaring me in his bat costume. He sneaked up on me, and I turned around and there was a bat tapping on my shoulder. And then I worked behind the scenes on my grandpa's movie Twixt. He enjoyed showing me how everything comes together and taking me through it all. That felt like my film school."

- Palo Alto director Gia Coppola describes what it's like growing up in the famous Hollywood family.

And BTW F*** that SBers 2 BS, they're doing it without HARMONY'S CONSENT. Sounds LAME AS A MUTHA! [sic]."

Leonardo DiCaprioLeonardo DiCaprio has reportedly "burned" himself out.

The Wolf of Wall Street star has been told to slow down by his friends as they fear his hectic work schedule is having a negative effect on his health and personal life. "Leo has been working like a demon over the past three years - and it's now starting to come back and haunt him. He's pretty burned out at the moment and suffering from insomnia from pushing himself so hard. Everybody is begging Leo to slow down but he's just very focused on making a lot of money right now -- to the exclusion of almost everything else," a source said.

However, it appears the 39-year-old actor has been investing his money wisely as he recently spent $10 million on a new four-bedroom apartment in New York. He also splashed out $8 million on an apartment adjacent to a $4 million home he already owns in the eco-friendly 2 River Terrace in Battery Park City last month. And in February, he spent $5.2 million on a six-bedroom mansion in Palm Springs, California.
