Ben Stiller doesn't think he has a "drive" for acting any more.
The actor-and-director enjoyed making his latest film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty - in which he plays the titular lead character - and he wonders if his passion behind the camera has taken over:
"I don't want to ever be dismissive of it. To be a really great actor takes as much commitment as anything. But I do wonder sometimes, for me, if I have as much drive for that these days as I do to direct, because that I don't even question. But then it's also about finding the projects, and it's much more of a commitment. But you're not limited by being cast in something, what type you are, what roles you can play, because you are who you are, which is fine, but directing to me is so many possibilities, so many worlds to explore."
Will Ferrell tried to keep Kanye West happy on the set of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
The "Black Skinhead" makes a cameo appearance in the much-anticipated comedy sequel, and Will - who plays lead character Ron Burgundy in the movie - admitted his new co-star struggled to get to grips with the filming schedule. "He was playing [his new music] through the sound department, on the speakers on set, at the park, as people were setting up for the next shot. Which was great. But then he didn't understand when it had to be turned off, when it was time to actually film. He was like, 'Hey man, what's going on?' We didn't want Kanye to get upset, but at the same time, we kind of had to film," he told Rolling Stone.
As well as giving the crew a sneak peak of his tracks, Kanye also treated them to the occasional performance, which director Adam McKay described as hilarious: "I think it was 'New Slaves' - the really strident one. Whichever one gets off on a rant. He was like, 'You guys want to listen to some new tracks?' We're like, 'Yeah, sure!' Then he started performing, and it gets to the point where he's screaming. He goes a full 100-miles-an-hour. Then he'd turn off and go, 'Anyway, thanks.' It was hilarious."
Kristin Davis is hoping for Sex and the City 3.
The 48-year-old actress - who played Charlotte Yorke in the hit films and long-running HBO series - has hinted that a third movie could be on the cards as there have been multiple discussions, but nothing has been agreed yet.
"I'm going to have a little talk with [co-star] Cynthia [Nixon] the next time I see her! I don't think [a third film] is a pipe dream, there is discussion. People talk about it amongst the people who are the players, but I don't know if it will come together. It would be very exciting if it did," she said.
At present, the brunette beauty is focusing on being a mother to her two-year-old adoptive daughter Gemma and is in no hurry to throw herself back into a movie project. "The greatest luxury is being home in the morning when my daughter wakes up and not have to go anywhere. I have a beautiful home, a beautiful yard and a lot of food. If Gemma and I could just be there, I could probably go a long time without leaving," she explained.
Bruce Jenner has landed a small role in a movie.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 64, has scored a part in the upcoming film, The Hungover Games, a comedy that spoofs a number of blockbusters including The Hunger Games, The Hangover and Ted.
The Olympic gold medallist, who announced his split from his third wife of 22 years, Kris Jenner, in October, is playing one of the futuristic Hunger Games play-by-play announcers alongside Kendra Wilkinson's husband, Hank Baskett, according to gossip website TMZ.com. A photograph has emerged from the set of the movie that shows Bruce, who has six children and four stepchildren including Kim Kardashian, wearing blue lipstick, perfectly shaped eyebrows and a wig.
The movie, which will also feature Tara Reid, Brandi Glanville, and Paris Hilton's aunt Kyle Richards, is expected to be released next year.
Ben Stiller cemented his hand and footprints into Hollywood history on Tuesday.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty star cast his prints outside the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX, making him a member of an exclusive club populated by cinematic legends including Marilyn Monroe, Clint Eastwood and Rita Hayworth. Speaking ahead of casting his prints, he told BANG Showbiz, "I've always loved the history of Hollywood and the history of the movies. It's very, very meaningful to me, and to be in any way a part of it is a dream come true. I'm humbled, touched and very proud to know that wherever I go, long after I'm dead, my footprints will be here in Hollywood, being stood on by a fake Shrek posing for tourists for a dollar."
Ben - star of Night at the Museum, Zoolander and Meet the Parents as well as director of The Cable Guy and Tropic Thunder- was introduced by his movie star friend, Tom Cruise. "It's a crowning accomplishment for Ben and I think it's so appropriate today that he is here being honored at this historical event. I'm very honored to be here to announce him and give it to him. A Brilliant artist and my dear friend, Ben Stiller," he said.

Despite an impressive jump from its debut at the twenty-second spot to number two this week, Frozen didn't make enough money to overtake last week's number one winner The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Thor: The Dark World fell one spot to number three with $11.1 million while The Best Man Holiday also fell one spot to number four with $8.4 million. Newcomer Homefront debuted at number five with $6.9 million.

Evan Rachel Wood has hit out at Hollywood double standards after a sex scene was cut from her new film Charlie Countryman.
The 26-year-old actress lashed out at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) - which is responsible for giving new releases age-appropriate audience ratings - after learning that a scene between her and co-star Shia LaBeouf had been cut from the final version of the film after being deemed inappropriate for audiences.
"After seeing the new cut of #CharlieCountryman I would like 2 share my disappointment with the MPAA, who thought it was necessary to censor a womans sexuality once again. The scene where the two main characters make 'love' was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people 'uncomfortable' but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered, [sic]" she ranted on Twitter.

Although Thor: The Dark World had a fairly good two-week run at the top, we all knew that it was short-lived with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on its way to theaters.
The sequel to last year's huge hit The Hunger Games took in $158 million, which makes it the biggest opening for a film in the month of November and the sixth biggest opening for a film overall (right behind The Dark Knight and above its predecessor by $6 million). Thor: The Dark World came in second with $14.1 million while The Best Man Holiday also slipped one position down to number three with $12.4 million. Vince Vaughn's Delivery Man debuted at number four with $7.9 million, and Free Birds hung in there dropping one spot to number five with $5.3 million.

Despite The Best Man Holiday beating Thor: The Dark World at the box office on Friday, the Marvel sequel came out on top overall this weekend, making it number one for a second consecutive week.

Free Birds dropped one spot to number four with $8.1 million while Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa fell three spots from last week's second place with $7.4 million.
