Katy Perry has a smelly film crew following her around shooting her latest movie. The 27-year-old beauty is currently being filmed by an English production team for her part-biopic, part-concert movie - which will be released later this summer - but she doesn't understand why they don't wash their hair on a regular basis, but she believes it is down to their nationality.
"I've got friends who are English who are filming me for my movie. Anytime I go out wearing a sweater that looks any type of grandma-ish they steal it from me. There's one whose name is Ed. He's real skinny, he showers every day but washes his hair about every three weeks. That's what the English boys do, all those hip English boys they just don't wash their hair because they think they won't get that cool look. But I love the people of England, they're so lovely and courteous. The real people of England care, they mean well. Maybe they talk crap behind your back, but they're so sweet to your face."
Kate Winslet wants to play a man. The 36-year-old actress - who earlier this week won a Golden Globe for her performance in TV mini-series Mildred Pierce - is keen to take on a part of someone as the opposite gender, previously done by stars including Cate Blanchett and Glenn Close, because she believes it would be the "ultimate challenge."
"I would like to one day play a man. That is something that I do know. I don't know what kind of a man, I don't know whether it will ever happen, but I do know I would be really interested because I think that would probably be the ultimate challenge."
Kate has previously claimed she would love to take on the part of the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor - a role both Angelina Jolie and Lindsey Lohan have coveted - and admits the possibility is a massive undertaking: "It's a massive undertaking for anybody who should be fortunate enough to get that part."
Talk about tension! Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet, and Christoph Waltz humorously come together to bring the play The God of Carnage from the stage to the big screen in Roman Polanski's adaptation, Carnage.
The film is due in theaters December 16.

When you throw in an extra host, add five more Best Picture nominees, take away the Best Song performances and nominate two formerly married directors—what do you get? A night that will surely be talked about.
Although many believe the 82nd Annual Academy Awards will end with very few surprises, the possibility of an upset is still too great to ignore. Will the box office champ (Avatar) win Best Film as well? Or will The Hurt Locker - or even Inglourious Basterds - take the prize? Is Jeff Bridges a shoo-in for Best Actor…or could BAFTA winner Colin Firth sneak past him? Will Sandra Bullock have to deliver another acceptance speech, or will Meryl Streep take home her first Oscar since 1983?

Here’s a quick look at some of the casting announcements made recently:
Marion Cotillard: The Nine beauty and fellow Academy Award winner Kate Winslet are in discussions for Contagion, a project from Steven Soderbergh. The film, already featuring Soderbergh fave Matt Damon and Jude Law, will have multiple storylines centered around the threat of a deadly disease. Shooting should begin sometime this year.
Kate Winslet - who picked up an Academy Award and two Golden Globes in 2009 - decided to take some time out so people wouldn’t get tired of her.
“I was in hiding a little bit, just doing family stuff and very little work,” she admitted to the Daily Mail. “To be honest, I felt so overexposed this time last year with the Golden Globes and the Oscar. It was fantastic and everything, but I was sick of me, let alone what other people must have felt.”
However, Kate is ready to get back to work is currently making her presentation rounds during the current awards season. She is also shooting an HBO mini-series based on the James M. Cain novel Mildred Pierce.
“We’re doing it from the book, not the film version with Joan Crawford,” Winslet revealed. “It’s such a deliciously meaty role and we cover a lot of ground, with Mildred raising her two girls during the Depression era. She runs her own business and, of course, there are men. And because it’s a mini-series for HBO we can really explore the characters and go into the kind of things you could only hint at when the film was made in 1945.”
James Cameron would love to work with Kate Winslet again, but isn’t sure about Leonardo DiCaprio.
The director - who worked alongside Kate and Leonardo when they played the lead roles in Titanic, one of the highest grossing films of all time - said he loved the way The Reader actress worked.
He told Playboy magazine: “I’d certainly work with Kate Winslet again; she’s very talented. Whereas Leo DiCaprio switches his acting on and off like a faucet, Kate’s acting process is to internalize all this stuff and use it.”
Big mistake. Rumor has it that Mildred Pierce, the 1945 joint that won Joan Crawford an Oscar, is going to be remade as a TV miniseries. Further rumor has it said series will air on HBO. And who’s starring in the title role? Kate Winslet.
Don’t get me wrong. I mean, she’s a fine actress. But Joan Crawford? Even Faye Dunaway later regretted trying to take on this silver screen icon.
