It was difficult. I’ve never been involved in a situation like that where one component is not in the box at all. It was f*****g soul crushing... I mean, a lot of people are gonna be like, ‘Oh, you’re just trying to blame the movie on him. I had no f*****g help from this dude whatsoever."

Natalie Portman Thinks Her Face Bores You

Natalie Portman in Your Highness

Natalie Portman is worried people will get bored of her face because she is in so many new movies.

The Golden Globe winner is worried people will feel they have seen too much of her by the end of 2011 because she will be in a number of films.

"I did Your Highness and then Black Swan and then Thor and then No Strings. So it was really interesting. I feel bad for boring people with my face for a while."

However, the 29-year-old actress has a reason for doing it - she is concerned the end of the world is coming in 2012:

Ryan Gosling Frustrated Over Censorship

Blue Valentine posterRyan Gosling was "frustrated" when film censors tried to ban his Blue Valentine sex scene. The 30-year-old actor, whose latest movie had its NC-17 rating in America reduced to R following an appeal, worries that people won't enjoy his work if younger audiences are banned from seeing it.

"The process is frustrating. They don't tell you why, there's no debate, you just get told the scene you have to cut. And if you get that rating it means you can't air on TV, you can't have ads in newspapers and you can't screen anywhere but in big cities with arthouse theatres. We weren't saying kids under 17 should be able to see the film, but getting that rating effectively means nobody can see your film," he said, speaking about the ratings system.

The scene that caused the controversy shows Ryan's character engaging in oral sex with Michelle Williams' - but he argues that it is not gratuitous but vital to the film, so people can see the "consequences" of unprotected sex. "Michelle's character has casual sex, gets pregnant and ends up having the kid. It affects the rest of her life. It stops her going to med school. The idea that parents wouldn't want kids to see the ramifications and consequences of sex seems strange to me. The film isn't glorifying anything, it demystifies things."

Quote of the Day: Natalie Portman on Romantic Comedies

Natalie Portmand and Ashton Kutcher

“I’ve always wanted to do one. But the girls are always in fashion, and it’s always about their clothes. They always want to get married at the end. There’s some kind of makeover scene. That stuff offends me. . . . My character is a woman who’s working, who’s trying to create her own construct for relationships, who’s funny herself — and isn’t just the girlfriend of a funny guy.”

Quote of the Day: James Cameron on ‘Ridiculous’ Battleship Movie

Rihanna on Battleship set

“We have a story crisis. Now they want to make the Battleship game into a film. This is pure desperation. ... Everyone in Hollywood knows how important it is that a film is a brand before it hit theaters. If a brand has been around, Harry Potter for example, or Spider-Man, you are light years ahead.

"If you look and analyze the careers of many, many stars, you'll find that they're mostly sustained by the business. You'll find there's lots of women and lots of men in the business that the powers that be decide are right for their business, and they'll stand with them for quite a long time. ... OK, something will go wrong, like Jennifer Aniston will have one too many total flops, but she's still a member of that club. And she will still manage to ... like a star forming in the universe, things will swirl around her and it will suddenly solidify into another vital tasteless rom-com, a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula."

How Johnny Depp Scared Disney

Actor Johnny Depp recently spoke to Vanity Fair about working with Angelina Jolie on The Tourist, doing movies for Disney and how he dealt with the paparazzi while he was filming.

Although Depp earned an Oscar nod for playing Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean, the powers-that-be at Disney weren’t exactly excited with his performance. The actor said on-set Disney execs “couldn’t stand” what he was doing with the character -- one person even asked if Sparrow was gay.

The actor’s answer? “All my characters are gay.” Depp said his response made the exec who asked “nervous.”

But Depp is used to taking things in stride. He spoke about filming with Angelina Jolie for The Tourist, which comes out next month, and said the paparazzi really hounded her. To avoid rumors, the two actors stayed far apart for the duration.

“It is what it is,” he said of the flick.
