Jared Leto hasn't seen Dallas Buyers Club.
The 42-year-old actor - who picked up Best Supporting Actor for his role as transsexual AIDS victim Rayon in the movie at Sunday's Oscars - plans to watch his work eventually, but wants to "leave it alone" at present because the project was such an "intense" experience.
"I have not seen the film yet. I think one day I will watch it, because, you know, I'll be curious at some point. But it was such an intense role. It's better for me to just leave it alone right now," he said while speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres show.
Jared appeared on the show just a few hours after getting home for the night, but wasn't upset at his lack of sleep because he had enjoyed celebrating so much: "I got in at -- I think the crack ass of dawn last night, maybe 6 o'clock, 5.30. Don't feel sorry for me, this is a time to revel in it, it's a sunrise you want to see. My mother, my brother were there and one of the highlights of the night was seeing my mom dance with Madonna. You meet all these amazing people last night, whether it was Jane Fonda or Liza Minnelli..."
Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy could delay filming for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The 29-year-old actress is reportedly due to welcome her first child into the world with her fiance Romain Dauriac, 31, in August, but shooting for her upcoming movie, which kicks off on April 5, may need to be re-scheduled to fit around her growing baby bump.
The blonde beauty plays Natasha Romanoff in the superhero film, which sees her squeeze into a figure-hugging catsuit and bosses are reportedly keen to shoot her scenes as soon as possible. "Shooting for the superhero sequel will need a bit of rearranging. They're going to fast-track her scenes," a source said.
Meanwhile, Scarlett and Romain's baby news comes just six months after the French creative agency boss popped the question with a vintage Art Deco ring last year. However, the Captain America: The Winter Soldier star has previously said she and Romain don't want to "rush" tying the knot as "being engaged is an exciting time to enjoy and to really savor."
"I think it probably made a really interesting aspect of the film, to have that connection and to have Rayon have one of his heroes be Marc Bolan. That’s great. Marc Bolan was an awesome person. But, for me, I made it very clear early on that I saw Rayon as a man who wanted to live his life as a woman, not someone who enjoyed putting on women’s clothing. If they wanted that kind of performance - or anything glam, or anything drag queen-y - I wasn’t the person for the part."

Kanye West is writing a movie role for Kim Kardashian.
The "Bound 2" hitmaker - who has eight-month-old daughter North with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star - is teaming up with author Bret Easton Ellis for a film based on his Yeezus album and insiders say his fiancee will "definitely" be part of the cast.
"It's going to be based on the Yeezus album. That's pretty much a narrative of Kanye's life. Kanye will not appear in the movie. Kim is definitely going to be in it. The screenplay already features her character," a source said.
However, it has not yet been decided how big a role Kim will play in the movie. "They're still working on the script, so it's unclear at this point if Kim will be a major star of the movie or making a smaller cameo but her role in the movie will be pivotal. Her role is going to be very dramatic. Far from the bubbly happy persona that she's always played," the source added.
Kanye plans to direct the movie - which will be dedicated to his late mother - and "wants to be heavily involved in all aspects of production."
Tara Reid accepted the leading role in Sharknado as a joke.
The 38-year-old actress stars alongside former Beverly Hills 90210 actor Ian Ziering in the film, which sees a freak hurricane swamp Los Angeles with hundreds of deadly sharks terrorizing its residents, and admits she never expected the made-for-TV movie to be so successful.
"I'm just as stunned as everyone else. Come on, I did it as a joke! I didn't even think anyone was going to see it. And then what happened has never happened before on any movie. Even now, you thought the buzz was going to stop about 'Sharknado', but it just keeps going."
Following on from its success, Asylum Films - who also made Snakes on a Plane - are now working on a sequel which will also star Tara Reid and she says it will be even more "ridiculous" than the first installment.
Ghostbusters star Harold Ramis has died at the age of 69.
The actor and director - best known for his role as Egon Spengler in the 1984 comedy, which he also wrote, with Dan Aykroyd - passed away in the early hours of yesterday morning after suffering autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis for a number of years.
Although he is best remembered on-screen for his roles in Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel, Harold had been a leading figure in comedy since the 70s, directing Caddyshack, Groundhog Day and National Lampoon's Vacation. He also co-wrote the iconic 1978 film National Lampoon's Animal House, and later 1999s Analyze This and 2002s Analyze That, starring Robert De Niro, which he also directed.
Harold continued to act in recent years, with parts in Knocked Up, Airheads and Oscar-winner As Good As it Gets and he had also directed episodes of the US version of The Office for network NBC.
Amanda Seyfried will star in Ted 2.
The actress has been cast as the girlfriend of lead character John Bennett, played by Mark Wahlberg. The same role was taken by Mila Kunis in the first film - which saw her character, Lori, marry John at the end - but she will only have a small role, or will not appear at all in the sequel, according to Deadline.com.
The reason for the change of female lead has been put down to a creative decision by Seth MacFarlane, the movie's creator, who will produce, write and co-star in the sequel as the titular character, a foul-mouthed teddy bear who has been brought to life by John. Les Miserables star Amanda has previously said she will go to great lengths to get film roles, and is not above "begging" for a part she wants.
"Three years ago, a director told me I wasn't made for a certain role and he didn't want to meet me. I called up the casting director and begged him to let me have a trial. I went and he once again told me it was a no. I contacted an acting coach, which I never normally do, and went back in a different outfit and did the audition in a different accent, begging them to see me another time. They gave the role to someone else: but it didn't matter, I just wanted to be sure I had done my best. It's my biggest strength: not being scared of doing castings that some actresses think they're above. I had five auditions for Les Miserables! Of course, I would never go as far as getting undressed to land a role," she previously said.

Channing Tatum has started work on Magic Mike 2.
The hunky actor announced he is working on the script for a sequel to his male stripper drama - loosely based on his own past - by posting a picture of him staring thoughtfully at a bust of his co-star from the original, Matthew McConaughey.
Referencing Matthew's character, he wrote underneath the picture. "What better way to start writing #MagicMike2 than with my old friend Dallas? #runatribe [sic]."
The first Magic Mike movie had a surprisingly dark plot, but Channing claims the sequel will be more light-hearted: "It will essentially be the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be: crazy and fun and less slice-of-life and less drama. The first one, we had to make not so cheesy and campy; this one we are going to swing for the fences."
Channing, 33, is also considering directing as well as starring in the movie, which would make it his debut feature.
Tom Hiddleston is a busy man.
From playing Loki in The Avengers films to starring in Shakespeare's Coriolanus (to rave reviews, mind you!) at London's Donmar Warehouse, the 32-year-old actor will now take on the lead in an upcoming adaptation of the JG Ballard novel, High Rise.
The film takes place in the future, where technology is so advanced that inhabitants of an apartment building need not venture to the outside world for any of their needs; however, trouble begins when the power starts to fail and the differing levels of the building - equated with societal classes - turn to violence.
Set to begin production in June, Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers) will direct while Jeremy Thomas - who has been trying to get the film made for 30 years - will produce.
