Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy could delay filming for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The 29-year-old actress is reportedly due to welcome her first child into the world with her fiance Romain Dauriac, 31, in August, but shooting for her upcoming movie, which kicks off on April 5, may need to be re-scheduled to fit around her growing baby bump.
The blonde beauty plays Natasha Romanoff in the superhero film, which sees her squeeze into a figure-hugging catsuit and bosses are reportedly keen to shoot her scenes as soon as possible. "Shooting for the superhero sequel will need a bit of rearranging. They're going to fast-track her scenes," a source said.
Meanwhile, Scarlett and Romain's baby news comes just six months after the French creative agency boss popped the question with a vintage Art Deco ring last year. However, the Captain America: The Winter Soldier star has previously said she and Romain don't want to "rush" tying the knot as "being engaged is an exciting time to enjoy and to really savor."
Jamie Dornan changed the way he walks while filming Fifty Shades of Grey.
The Northern Irish actor decided to improve his strut after a dancing instructor on the set informed he looked awkward and was "quite bouncy," and applies his new heel-to-toe technique every day.
"So basically, I've always had a complex with the way I walk. I've not always been told I've got a bad walk, but someone's always commented on my walk. It's always been a bit like, 'alright. That's how you walk?'" the 31-year-old former model said.
The actor, who welcomed his first child, a baby girl, with wife Amelia Warner in December, made the discovering while taking dancing classes before shooting a scene for the film, during which his character Christian Grey twirls Anastasia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson, around the dance floor:
Jennifer Lawrence is going to take a year's break from acting.
The 23-year-old actress has made eight films in the past 12 months, and Harvey Weinstein - who worked with her on Silver Linings Playbook - has revealed she is about to have a much earned "rest."
"She's going to have a long break for a year where she won't do anything. It's been non-stop for her and she deserves a rest," he told The Sun.
The famed producer also defended her decision to not attend the BAFTAs ceremony, despite receiving an award for her role in American Hustle. "Jennifer is too nice and will do people favors and agrees to do a movie like American Hustle when she could have had a rest. She signed on to do Hunger Games when she was young and wouldn't have realized how much it would dominate her life. But she's a professional and always will be," the famed producer explained.

Emma Watson was forced to take method acting to whole other level while filming Noah.
In an article for Wonderland magazine - which the 23-year-old guest edited - Emma revealed that she became sick after drinking some dirty water on set, where director Darren Aronofsky banned plastic water bottles: "I was so tired one morning I picked up a mug from my trailer and drank some stagnant water that had been there for the duration. I was so ill... Having no water bottles on set at five in the morning, when you're exhausted and delirious, wasn't ideal."
When she told Aronofsky that she wasn't feeling well, the director instructed her to use it for her scene. "I turned round to the bus and was like: 'Is he joking?' and there was deadly silence," Emma recalled.
Fans will see whether or not Aronofsky's directing methods work when Noah hits theaters March 28.

Elizabeth Olsen has never been a fan of comic books.
The 24-year-old actress plays Scarlet Witch in the upcoming superhero movie The Avengers: Age of Ultron and, although she admits she's never really been one to read a comics, she insists she had heard of her alter-ego before she was handed the role.
"I'm not much of a comic book person. I like comic book movies but my brother [Trent, a screenwriter] is the comic book guy. If I'm having a meeting, I ask my brother to tell me about it. But of course I'd seen The Avengers! I've seen all the Marvel movies. I love those movies. Marvel keep the fantastical qualities but create something as realistic as they can make for this world. There's something genuinely broken. Everyone has their Achilles' heel," she said.
The screen star admits she doesn't know how she managed to secure herself the role in the Marvel movie, but doesn't think the director, Joss Whedon, hired her to wear racy outfits like the ones in the comic.

Dakota Johnson has "no shame."
The 24-year-old actress is to portray Anasasia Steele opposite Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in the big-screen adaptation of E. L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and she insists he has no concerns about shooting any of the raunchy scenes: "I don't have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame."
And Dakota insists she was more interested in the "emotional" aspects of the story than any of the sexy scenes. When asked what intrigued her about the books, she told the new issue of America's Elle magazine, "Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there's a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down."
The actress is the daughter of actor Don Johnson and his ex-wife Melanie Griffith and she claimed she used to get "picked on" for having famous parents by people who didn't even know her: "I think people, especially the press, like to pick on children of famous people and I think that's f***ing awful. Things get made up. It's so, so sad. And there's absolutely nothing you can do about it as a 16 year old. You're like....Why? What did I do?"
