Quote of the Day: Vin Diesel on Voicing Groot

Vin Diesel and Groot, of 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

"It was the month after the accident happened with my brother Paul Walker and it was the first time I had worked since. Although it was challenging, just to get back to work was therapeutic — especially as Groot. There was an innocence about the character that was just refreshing — and it may have been more challenging under other circumstances, but at that time, it was very therapeutic."

- Vin Diesel shares how voicing the role of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy helped him get over the death of his friend and Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker.

Elizabeth Olsen Nervous About Starring in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

Elizabeth Olsen in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'Elizabeth Olsen is nervous about starring in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The 25-year-old actress is one of the new stars to join the cast of the superhero movie - in which she will play the Scarlett Witch, alongside newcomer Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who will portray Quicksilver - and worries she has not had the same opportunity for character development as returning cast members.

"It is intimidating going into a production where everyone has their characters fully fleshed out and they know their weaknesses and they have their comedy. Aaron and I don't really have the luxury of time to develop those," she said.

The returning cast includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.

Joel Kinnaman Hurt Leg on ‘Robocop’

Joel KinnamanJoel Kinnaman injured a muscle in his leg while shooting Robocop.

The 34-year-old actor - who plays cop Alex Murphy who is turned into a cyborg law enforcement officer in the movie - didn't sustain any serious injuries while shooting the action-packed science fiction film and the only ailment he did suffer was a minor muscular strain.

When asked if he had gotten injured at any point during the shoot, Joel told BANG Showbiz, "I pulled my hamstring one day, I did it when I was running."

Kinnaman appears in the movie with a stellar cast, which includes Abbie Cornish, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Keaton. But there was one actor who Kinnaman enjoyed working with more than anyone else: "Working with Gary Oldman was one of the great experiences of my life, he's an incredible actor and also a wonderful man. I was extremely happy [to get the role], I worked hard to get it. I had to audition three times and finally I was able to convince Dr. Padilha [director] that I was the right guy." Kinnaman was joined on the special blue carpet at the event yesterday evening by his co-stars Oldman and Cornish and the film's director Jose Padilha.


Michael Keaton: Robocop Costume a “Sissy Suit”

Michael KeatonMichael Keaton claims the new Robocop costume is a "sissy suit."

The actor - who appears in the cyborg cop reboot as Raymond Sellers, CEO of the evil Omnicorp organization - joked the special effects armor Joel Kinnaman had to wear as the title character wasn't a patch on the rubber suit he had to don to play Batman in 1989.

"That sissy suit - they have air conditioning in it. [When I played Batman] I couldn't do [any] of that because I couldn't get up to go the bathroom. They put me in this thing and inside, honestly, I started having panic attacks. Literally, panic attacks. So, I thought, 'I don't know how I'm going to do this, man. I'm feeling really, really scared.'"

While costume design has come on since the 80s, Joel said his 45lb suit was still difficult to wield, and took almost two hours to put on each day. "It was a bit of a challenge to put on. It was so uncomfortable, it was digging in everywhere, it was pressing down on my shoulders, and I was sweating like a pig. After twenty minutes, I said, 'I gotta get out of this!' And then, it was a daunting idea that I was going to have to wear this for 14 hours a day, six days a week for five months," he said.

Noomi Rapace Isn’t Polite with Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy and Noomi RapaceNoomi Rapace doesn't "need to be polite" when she works with Tom Hardy.

The Swedish actress appears alongside the Batman: The Dark Knight Rises star in Soviet-era thriller Child 44, and says their on screen chemistry comes from being such good friends off-camera:

"I met Tom two years previously and we were looking for something to work on. What was really great was that we know each other really well, and we really trust each other, so we don't need to be polite, we don't need to start from zero. We could just melt into the next one. We had so much for free. It felt like we were this gypsy family coming from New York with all our family and the next stop was Prague [in The Czech Republic]."

Noomi also told how one of the main reasons she wanted to become an actress and travel the world was so it got her away from the cold winters of her native Sweden, but also acknowledged they were always a good time for her creatively. "Because it's dark and cold out, it forces people to be creative, you can't just sit and hang out. For six months it's dark and lonely and forces some creativity," she added.

Margot Robbie Slapped DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie on set of 'Wolf of Wall Street'Margot Robbie violently slapped Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of The Wolf of Wall Street.

The 23-year-old actress got caught in the moment while filming Martin Scorsese's new black comedy and accidentally hit her A-list co-star hard across the face, much to her horror. However, the 39-year-old hunk - who plays womanizing stockbroker Jordan Belfort - was impressed with her courage and asked her to do it again.

"I got a little lost in the moment. I slapped his face and said, 'F**k you!' There was a stunned silence then they all burst out laughing. I'd thought they were going to sue me. I apologized profusely but Leo said, 'That was brilliant. Hit me in the face again!'" she told GQ.

Meanwhile, Margot has admitted she finds it hard maintaining a slender figure for the cameras and tends to yo-yo diet because she can't resist fatty food. "I don't have a very good diet. I love beer, fries, burgers, but if I have to get in a bikini then I ear carrot sticks for three days. I'm one extreme or the other. I'm not good at doing moderation," the blonde bombshell joked.


Jonah Hill Made Leonardo DiCaprio Vomit While Filming ‘Wolf of Wall Street’

Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprioJonah Hill has confirmed Leonardo DiCaprio was throwing up on the set of The Wolf of Wall Street.

The actor decided to take revenge on his co-star for "basically beat[ing] the c**p" out of him for six months while filming Martin Scorsese's new black comedy, and tricked Leonardo into eating so much sushi that the A-list actor was "throwing up into a waste bin."

Jonah used his improvisation skills to insist, "No, you have it," in every take of a scene in which his character was supposed to scoff the Japanese delicacy, and the raw fish obviously didn't agree with Leonardo. When asked if the Titanic hunk had got his own back yet, Jonah joked to E! News, "Well, now he is! Since you asked him that question he's probably going to beat me up again!"

Aside from the vomit-inducing prank, Jonah claims the pair got on brilliantly while making the film based on New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort's memoir and believes their chemistry shines through on screen. "No, he's the greatest. I was really happy with how [his and Leo's characters'] relationship is, you know the business partners and best friends, and I think if I didn't love and respect Leo and have that love for him, that wouldn't have come through as much as it did," Jonah explained.
