Rihanna Injured Michael Cera Filming ‘This Is the End’

Michael Cera and Rihanna filming 'This Is the End'Michael Cera had to lie down after Rihanna slapped him.

The "Stay" singer gave the 25-year-old actor permission to smack her butt during a scene for their new movie, This Is the End, if she could slap him in the face, and according to their director and co-star Seth Rogen, Michael had to lie down in his trailer after she hit him.

"We did maybe three or four [takes] and he asked her if he could actually slap her butt and she said he could if she could actually slap him back in the face which she did. And I think one of the times she got him in the ear and it wacked off his equilibrium and he had to go lie down in his trailer for a little bit," Rogen told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.

The Super Bad star wrote and directed the new apocalyptic comedy in which his friends Michael, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Jason Segel and Paul Rudd all play ridiculous, exaggerated versions of themselves.

VIDEO: The Michael Cera School of Acting

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Celebrity Gossip, Videos


I’ve often said that actor (Zombieland) could be the new Michael Cera—now I understand the reason for the similarities.

In this video for “The Michael Cera School of Acting,” actors who’ve struggled with their good looks and charm are taught how to act like the Juno star. Classes like “Inappropriate Laughter” and “How to Perpetually Look Like You’re Seventeen” help thespians “tone down their charisma and embrace the awkward.”

Eisenberg is just one of the big names to have completed the program. Other gradutes from the school started in 2007 reportedly include Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Kick-Ass), (She’s Out of My League) and Shia LaBeouf.

Box Office Breakdown: The Switch Fails to Light Up

The Switch

Maybe a quick trip to Cougar Town is something Jennifer Aniston could use right now.

Days after blurting out the R-word on television, Aniston is dealing with another ding in her career: the box office disappointment. The Switch, co-starring Jason Bateman, produced only $8.4 million over the past three days while narrowly escaping eighth place. The good news? The movie raised slightly more than Jen’s Love Happens did back in September. The bad news? The comedy earned about $4 million less than Jennifer Lopez’s baby movie, The Back-Up Plan, did in April.

Although fell in second with its $23.1 million take, the movie was by no means a disappointment. The Julia Roberts vehicle premiered on par with Julie & Julia’s $20 million kickoff last August. Meanwhile, Roberts earned her best opening numbers in 10 years (outside of the Oceans franchise).

Remake News: Speedy Gonzales, Pet Semetary and More


Speedy Gonzales: George Lopez has already voiced a chihuahua, so it’s only logical he would take on Mexico’s fastest mouse next. The comedian is now set to lead a live-action/CG hybrid version of Speedy Gonzales, the famous animated series from the 1950’s. Although the cartoon’s depictions have been labeled racist in recent years, Ann Lopez, George’s wife/producing partner, promises the storyline will be updated for the times. “Speedy’s going to be a misunderstood boy who comes from a family that works in a very meticulous setting, and he’s a little too fast for what they do,” she explained. “He makes a mess of that. So he has to go out in the world to find what he’s good at.”

Michael Cera Embraces Womenswear

Michael Cera and Portia Doubleday in Youth in Revolt

enjoyed wearing a dress for his latest film role.

The Superbad actor - who plays two characters, an aspiring novelist Nick Twisp, and man of action Francois Dilinger in his latest film, - said he didn’t mind donning a dress for the role, because it was better than being stripped down to his boxers.

“I was just relieved to have something on. I was doing a scene with just boxers on before that, so it was just nice to not have people see me as much. That’s why it was so comfortable. I don’t think I was thinking about the dress. I was trying to remember what to say.”
