Trudie Styler: George Clooney Should Have Older Love Interests

George ClooneyTrudie Styler thinks that George Clooney should be cast in movies alongside women his own age.

The film producer - wife of "Shape of my Heart" singer Sting - has blasted ageism in Hollywood, using the 52-year-old hunk as an example. "Look at George Clooney...I'm a huge admirer of his, but when he plays a leading man in a love story, his love interest is always 10 years his junior. Why not have an actress the same age as him? Hollywood always wants to rose tint everything, but this doesn't even reflect real life. In life, you see younger men and older women and the majority of marriages don't have such a huge age gap as we're used to seeing in films," she told The Daily Mail.

Leading ladies who have played opposite George include Jennifer Lopez, Catherine Zeta Jones and Renee Zellwegger, all of whom are now 44. However, in real life, ladies man George's last three girlfriends have been much younger than him, with him dating Stacy Keblier, 34, Elisabetta Canalis, 35, and Sarah Larsen, 32.

Henry Cavill: Affleck Will Be a “Fantastic” Batman

Ben Affleck and Henry CavillHenry Cavill is sure Ben Affleck will make a "fantastic" Batman.

The Man Of Steel actor's Superman will be pitted against Ben's character in the provisionally titled Batman Vs Superman in 2015, and he's positive the star will do a great job of playing the superhero.

"I'm sure he'll be fantastic, above all else. As a filmmaker he's got his own style, he's not copying anyone else. He's been tenacious in his career, he's had ups followed by downs and now he's up again. I think that requires and shows a special strength of character and it's something I enjoy working with because jobs like this require a dedication to the work and belief in one's self, and Ben has that," he said.

David Beckham wants Brad Pitt to portray him in a movie about his life.

The retired soccer star is a fan of the Hollywood hunk and thinks if a film were ever made about him, Brad, 49, would be a good choice for the starring role. "I think Brad would be the obvious choice. I'd like Brad to be playing me - him or Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the two. Or Bradley Cooper. They're not bad looking guys," David joked.

Kellan Lutz Couldn’t Get as Big as Dwayne Johnson for ‘Hercules’

Kellan LutzKellan Lutz jokes he can't match rival Hercules Dwayne Johnson's physique.

The two actors play the Greek hero in separate movies, and the Hercules: The Legend Begins star joked his body could never match up to The Rock's.

"I wanted to get big, but then you have The Rock playing in the other Hercules. There's not enough 'extra-curricular' stuff for that," he told E! News.

The 28-year-old star has still put himself through a tough and ''rigorous'' training regime to getting into top shape for the film: "I wanted to put on weight. Renny [Harlin] the director, he just wanted me cut, so I had to get cut ... For me, it was very rigorous training. I had to learn how to ride a horse while wielding a sword and fighting mercenaries, as well as giving a badass speech and in the rain. And horses don't like the rain. It was very rigorous."

Kellan also revealed while he can't match the Hercules: The Thracian Wars star in terms of his physique, he's been glad to let himself indulge in some sweet treats on set: "If you've ever been on a movie set, there's food all the time. It's hard to stay healthy because I had milk chocolate bars three times a day, and I'd just eat the whole bar."


Quote of the Day: ‘Catching Fire’ Director on Jennifer Lawrence’s Running

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen

"We worked on [how Jennifer Lawrence looks when she's running]. One of the first things we talked about when we started Catching Fire was that she said she always made this stupid face when she ran, and I had to specifically watch out to make sure she didn't make the stupid face when she ran. So I was always checking. I would tell her, 'You made the stupid face!'"

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence recalls working with Jennifer Lawrence on fixing how she looks when she's running in a scene.

Mark Wahlberg: Acting Is Nothing Like the Military

Mark Wahlberg on the set of 'Lone Survivor'Mark Wahlberg has hit back at actors who compare their work to being in the military.

The 42-year-old actor - who stars in new movie Lone Survivor, based on the memoirs of Navy SEAL officer Marcus Luttrell - takes offense to Hollywood stars who complain about the rigorous training they have to do for their movies and believes it's nothing compared to real warfare.

"For actors to sit there and talk about 'Oh, I went to SEAL training' ... I don't give a f**k what you did. You don't do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as being in the military? How f**king dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours. I don't give a s**t if you get your ass busted. You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order your f***ing chicken," the impassioned star ranted, speaking at his film's premiere on Tuesday.

Liev Schreiber: I’m No Film Star

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Casting, Celebrity Gossip

Liev SchreiberLiev Schreiber doesn't see himself as a film star.

The 46-year-old actor - who has sons Alexander, nicknamed Sasha, and Samuel with long-term partner Naomi Watts - thinks he's not in the same league as other Hollywood actors and would describe himself first and foremost as a parent.

When asked whether he calls himself a movie star, Liev told Cigar Aficionado magazine's November/December issue, "I'm flattered but that seems like a bit of a stretch. When I hear that term, I think about people like Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie. Actually, I think of people like Gary Cooper, Bette Davis, Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant. I mean, I act, I'm a parent, I'm an entrepreneur. I don't know if you have anyone anymore who is exclusively a movie star."

Despite having graced the screen in big budget movies alongside the likes of Meryl Streep and Hugh Jackman, Liev is happy to take a backseat and prefers to accept supporting roles: "I made a career out of being a supporting actor. I enjoy the process of understanding a script, breaking it down, figuring out where my part fits in."

Naomi Watts Felt Compelled to Play the “Complex” Princess Diana

Princess Diana and Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts wanted to play Princess Diana because she was such a "complex" woman.

The 44-year-old actress portrays the late royal in new movie Diana - which is based on the book Diana: Her Last Love and focuses on the last two years of her life including her romance with Dr. Hasnat Khan. Naomi initially turned down the part twice but was compelled to take on the role because she found Diana - the mother of British Princes William and Harry - so fascinating. Speaking at the world premiere of the film at the Odeon cinema in London's Leicester Square, she said, "Any woman I take on [on screen] I want them to be all things. I'm fascinated by women who are complex, full of contradictions, who are fun, intelligent but fragile at the same time. Someone who is going through something, some kind of transformation and this story is definitely that."
