  • Kate Walsh Confesses Secret Airplane Habit

    What does a sexy surgeon do when she's out of work? Travel.

    After spending six years playing Dr. Addison Montgomery on "Private Practice," Kate Walsh has decided to spend a little time on the road. Since the show wrapped in late January, she has been traveling everywhere from Belize to Anguilla to Washington, D.C.

    5a824eb3-a8bd-4718-ba42-025d71f7151a_300_KateWalsh_041213

    "I just feel really compelled, particularly because I wrapped the series. Now I am like, 'I wanna travel everywhere I possibly can before I go back to work,'" the 45-year-old actress told omg! in an exclusive interview.

    Read on to find out more about her recent adventures as well as what she secretly likes to do on airplanes. Hint: It has nothing to do with the mile-high club!

    What's better: traveling when you were young or traveling now as an adult?

    Travel is great at any age. I really thank my parents for that. When we were kids, we'd go up and down the California coast, camping on beaches. It instilled this wanderlust in me. When I was 10 years old I went with my grandparents and we drove across the country in their Maverick and we stayed at Motel 6s along the way. "Motel 6 is always clean," my grandmother would say. We went from San Jose to Seattle to the Space Needle and across the country from Yellowstone to Old Faithful to Niagara Falls.

    What trips are you taking this year?

    I think I am going to go to Vienna to participate in this festival put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press. From there I am either going to Venice or my makeup artist, Sergio Lopez Rivera, is from Spain and there is a festival there called the April Fair, which is a flamenco dancing festival in Seville.

     

    Do you have any travel pet peeves?

    No. Although, I think it is innately weird to sit next to strangers for long periods of time. I used to be one of those people who was like, "Don't ever talk to me on a plane." Lately though, I've sat next to some pretty interesting people, so that's actually worked out for me.

    But you'd rather just relax on a flight.899b4a39-1ad4-4532-95a8-1a265b5a6166_300_KateWalsh_041813 (1)

    I enjoy flights where I can just relax and not interact. I'll tell you something that always happens to me. On flights, I usually cry when I am up in the air. I am not kidding.

    Are you afraid of flying?

    I get hugely emotional. I don't know if it is the cabin pressure or if it's the one time that I slow down, look out the window, and contemplate life at 40,000 feet … inevitably there will be tears. I get very existential and always have a good cry on [long flights]. So if you see me on a plane crying, don't take it personally and I am really OK.

    52baf5b8-e599-4390-a310-6f53e33dc9e8_620_KateWalsh1_041813

    Do you plan most of your vacations yourself?

    I am very hands on. I have an idea of where I want to go and then I'll talk to other people who've been there and a travel agent. As much as I enjoy a gorgeous, sumptuous, 5-star hotel, I love a boutique, family-run hotel. There is a special sort of feeling, ambience, and je ne sais quoi at a family-run place.

    You like to get off the beaten path a bit then?

    Yeah, I do.

     

    What's one stamp in your passport you'd love to have?

    I am pretty obsessed with going east to India and Thailand. Then I want to go to Patagonia and Cuba.

    So would you say you're outdoorsy?

    Well, because I work with Oceana, I am in the water snorkeling and swimming and I like to explore. I would say I am a little bit of an adventurer. So, yes!

    What's one thing that is always in your suitcase?

    There's a pair of Havianas with me everywhere I go. Also, I always travel with a pair of leopard pajamas. I would encourage others to do so, too. You just feel sassy. A little leopard goes a long way.

    What are your travel beauty essentials?

    If I must say, my mini eau du parfum of Boyfriend or the hand cream, because they are all plane-sized. You can take them with you wherever you go.

    Walsh checks out the slopes of Heavenly in Lake Tahoe.

    You take a lot of Instagram photos. Do you take a lot of pictures on trips?

    I am so lame when it comes to taking pictures on trips. I have never been a picture taker and I rely on those around me to take pictures. My boyfriend is better than me.

    What's the best way to travel: planes, trains or automobiles?

    My favorite way to travel is by train because you're going a little slower than 500 mph in the air. You can look out the window, read, contemplate life, and have the experience of moving through time and space. I also like a good old-fashioned road trip. Just getting in the car and driving!

     

    When you're travels are done, are you headed back to TV?

    I have some stuff in the hopper… some shorter comedic stuff and then hopefully a new television show. It's going to be a big departure from what I have been doing and I am really looking forward to it.

  • "2012", Classical Disaster Film

    201116810
    2012 is actually a 2009 disaster film directed by Roland Emmerich. The film stars John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Danny Glover, Thandie Newton and Woody Harrelson. It was distributed by Columbia ImagesFilming began in August 2008 in Vancouver.
    The film briefly references Mayanism, the Mesoamerican Extended Count calendar, plus the 2012 phenomenon in its portrayal of cataclysmic events unfolding inside the year 2012. As a result of solar flare bombardment the Earth's core begins heating up at an unprecedented price, at some point causing crustal displacement. This leads to an onslaught of Doomsday occasion scenarios plunging the globe into chaos, ranging from California falling into the Pacific Ocean, the eruption from the Yellowstone National Park caldera, huge earthquakes, and Megatsunami impacts along every single coast line on the Earth.
    002264b598130c65cc7d47_副本
    The film centers about an ensemble cast of characters as they narrowly escape a number of catastrophes in an effort to reach ships within the Himalayas, together with scientists and governments from the world who're attempting to save as quite a few lives as they will ahead of the disasters ensue.

    I
    assume,it will be, for its audiences, one particular with the most satisfactory films from the year and it genuinely is often referred to as the "mother of all disaster movies".

  • Octavia Spencer: I’m Grateful Success Didn’t Happen at 22

    Octavia Spencer worked in Hollywood for 16 years before she became a household name.

    300-OctaviaSpencer-jpg_211242

    She appeared in "E.R.," movies like "Big Momma's House," and many, many more TV shows and films before landing the role in "The Help" that won her the Best Supporting Actress Oscar last year. The surprising thing is that she wouldn't have had it any other way.

    "I think [success] came at the right time," Spencer tells omg!. "I think success happens when it's supposed to and when you can appreciate it. I am grateful that it didn't happen for me at 22 or 23. I would've been foolish enough to think that we're all entitled to it, instead of it being the divine blessing that it is."

    The 42-year-old explains that the movie -- in which she portrays Minny, a woman taking care of the homes and children of white families in pre-Civil Rights Era Jackson, Mississippi -- brought her much more than accolades.

    "I'm still good friends with Viola [Davis] and Emma [Stone], Jessica [Chastain] -- we were a tight-knit group," she says, adding that her preparation for the role also left her with a different outlook on life. "I realized that my perspective about my place in the world needed to change. I come from humble beginnings -- very humble beginnings -- but Minny, her beginnings were more humble than mine. And she didn't feel entitlement. She just wanted the best life for her kids, and it made me realize that it wasn't about the glass being half empty or half full, but that you owned the glass. Minny didn't own the glass. I've always owned the glass, and I didn't know that, and getting ready for that role put it all into perspective, and that's why I think it was good that success happened for me at a later date, because I got it; I got the memo."

    Last year, while all this change was going on, Spencer also made a big decision about her health after she heard about a product called Sensa, which is a weight-loss supplement that when sprinkled over food is supposed to trick the body into thinking it's full.

    "I just joined the 40s club, and I thought if this product will help me lose weight at my own pace, in my own way, and I don't have to follow a crazy, restrictive meal plan, then it's something that I need to do," Spencer says.

    300-OctaviaSpencer-020612-jpg_005937

    At the same time, the actress decided she needed to step up her workout.

    "I like to eat, and so I know that I have to be physical at some point, or I'm going to be just a little soft marshmallow," she notes.

    The combination of exercise and eating less has already paid off big. Spencer unveiled a 20-pound weight loss in February, and she's not finished yet. She jokingly sings "Everyday I'm sprinkling," to the tune of the line "Everyday I'm shuffling" in LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem."

     

    "As a kid, I was always very thin, and I kind of didn't know that I was skinny," she notes. "I look back at pictures now, and I think, 'Who are you?' I started really gaining weight at around 18 or 19, and then 10 pounds turns into 20. The freshman 15 is what started it for me."

    While her dress size is smaller now, Spencer says her red carpet style has remained consistent. She continues to sport dresses designed by the Japanese-born Tadashi Shoji when she steps out for fancy fetes.

    620-TheHelp-jpg_005937

    "I love a classic look, which is why I love Tadashi," she raves. "I gravitate to whatever looks good on me and whatever maakes me feel sexy. I can't say that that has changed because of weight loss."

    The next time you see Spencer at a Hollywood soiree, she just might be being honored for her latest role, in the independent film "Fruitvale." The film is based on the true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old man who was shot to death by the Bay Area Rapid Transit Police Department in San Francisco in 2009, sparking outrage, because he was found to be unarmed.

    Spencer, who plays Grant's mother, notes that the project was an important one for her.

    "The mentality of how we treat one another needs to be examined, especially how we treat our men of color," she shares. "I have young nephews that would be contemporaries of Oscar Grant, and I thought that if by doing this film it would somehow cause people to assess their behavior -- no matter what side of the issue they're on -- if it would help them assess their behavior and curtail their behavior in some way and how we deal with another, then maybe I've done my job."

    The A-list actress's upcoming projects also include a children's book that comes out in the fall, as well as a Lifetime movie, "Call Me Crazy," about mental illness. The flick, which airs April 20, is a series of five short films featuring actresses such as Jennifer Hudson and Melissa Leo. Spencer stars in the segment directed by, of course, another friend from "The Help," Bryce Dallas Howard.

     

    "It's time that we destigmatize mental illness and understand the prospects for people suffering from mental illness are hopeful if they get help," notes Spencer. "That's why we are trying to shine that light."

    Spencer is determined to use the platform given to her by "The Help" to help others.

  • Jennifer Lawrence Rocks New Short Haircut at GLAAD Media Awards: Picture

    Jennifer Lawrence has always been a cut above -- and now she has the hair to match. On Saturday, April 20, the Silver Linings Playbook Oscar-winner debuted a short new 'do at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards presented by Ketel One Vodka, where she was joined by celebs including Drew Barrymore, Charlize Theron, Darren Criss, and Leonardo DiCaprio.

    1366556206_jennifer-lawrence-g

    Prior to taking the stage with famed movie exec Harvey Weinstein, the Hunger Games actress posed for photographs on the red carpet inside the JW Marriott at L.A. Live. Her formerly long blonde locks were shorn into shoulder-length layers with side-swept bangs, like a longer version of model Karlie Kloss' chin-length chop, which The New York Times dubbed "the haircut of the year" in January. The chic style complemented her equally chic ensemble: a black flared David Koma dress with sheer detailing, matching black Nicholas Kirkwood heels, and jewelry by David Webb.

    Lawrence -- recently named one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World -- was on hand to introduce former President Bill Clinton, who received the Advocate for Change Award. During his acceptance speech, he joked that he was like a dinosaur next to the 22-year-old star.

    It looked like "she was touring the Museum of Natural History" backstage, Clinton, 66, quipped playfully, noting that "she was like 2 years old" when he took office in January 1993. (In fact, that's not an exaggeration; the actress was born in August 1990.)

    Lawrence, for her part, endeared herself to both the politician and the crowd when she tripped over President Clinton's name in her introduction and accidentally read some of Weinstein's lines instead of her own. "It's not my comfort zone," she recently told U.K. magazine Fabulous of speaking in public. "Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn't be heard just talking. So, when I'm doing movies, I'm really happy. That's where I'm comfortable, that's my home. When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer."

  • Reese Witherspoon Denies Telling Police "Do You Know My Name" During Arrest

    Friends Season 1--10 DVD Box Set(http://www.hotdvdplay.com/friends-seasons-1-10-dvd-box-set.html)

    News of Reese Witherspoon getting arrested was shocking, but what may have surprised fans even more was what the sweet, Southern mom of three reportedly said to police officers.

    Reese Witherspoon1

    According to the police report, "Mrs. Witherspoon asked, 'Do you know my name?' I answered, 'No, I don't need to know your name.' I then added, 'Right now.' Mrs. Witherspoon stated, 'You're about to find out who I am'."

    But a source tells E! News that the star insists it didn't go down like that.

    NEWS: Reese Witherspoon attends movie premiere in New York following arrest

    "It wasn't like that," the source said, and explained that when the officer was handcuffing her, Witherspoon simply asked, "Don't you need to know my name?"

    Reese Witherspoon

    The source also added that there was no screaming or any sort of physical altercation between Witherspoon and the officer. "She was being protective of her husband and was fearful of the situation," they tell us.

    Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth were arrested and jailed early Friday morning in Atlanta for an alleged DUI and disorderly conduct, after getting pulled over under suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Around 3:30 a.m. the same day, the couple were released on bond. A court date has been scheduled for Monday at 8 a.m. in Atlanta Municipal Court.

    But you wouldn't know the duo had any trouble this weekend by looking at them. The couple seemed more than fine, as witnessed by this photograph of them leaving their New York City hotel earlier today to attend Reese's premiere for Mud.

  • Roman Holiday, Classic of Romantic Story

    d8f9d72a6059252dc0731008349b033b5ab5c9ea15ce8169
    There has been a lengthy hiatus involving that day when history wore a rose, when princesses and knights-errant in mufti could get into a lovely scrape or two and when the movies could do anything about it. That day apparently has passed. For “Roman Holiday,” which arrived in the Music Hall yesterday, is a royal lark inside the modern day idiom about a regal but lonely young thing who has her moment of happiness with an adventurous newspaper man. It's a contrived fable but a bittersweet legend with laughs that leaves the spirits soaring.

    Call “Roman Holiday” a credit to William Wyler’s versatility. The producer-director, who has been expending his not inconsiderable talents on worthy but significant themes, is herein attempting around the mantle from the late Ernst Lubitsch and generating it match fairly nicely. He absolutely is dealing with the formal manners of ultra-high society and, in the event the unpolished frequent man is very significantly in evidence, too, it does not matter mainly because his cast plus the visually spectacular backgrounds of Rome, in which this romantic excursion was filmed, also are important attributes to this engaging story.
    2e2eb9389b504fc29d3fbd09e5dde71191ef76c6a7ef4d65

    Tender, Amusing Yarn
    A viewer with a long memory could recall some plot similarities amongst “Roman Holiday” and “It Happened A single Evening.” That is not vital. Mr. Wyler and his associates have fashioned a organic, tender and amusing yarn about the heiress towards the throne of a mythical kingdom who is sick unto death of an unending schedule of speeches, greetings and interviews attendant on her goodwill tour and who abruptly decides to escape from these bonds of propriety. Her accidental meeting with Joe Bradley, the American journalist, plus the evening she spends in his apartment are cheerful, untarnished and completely believable happenstances in which romance understandably starts to bloom.
    a686c9177f3e6709496648f33bc79f3df9dcd100baa1756b

    The director and his scenarists, Ian McLellan Hunter and John Dighton, have sensibly
    used the sights and sounds of Rome to dovetail with the information in their story. Considering that the newspaper man is anxious to have the exclusive rights towards the princess’ adventures within the Eternal City, and considering that he's also anxious to maintain her within the dark as to his identity, a Cook’s Tour of the Eternal City is each appropriate and visually edifying.
    f7246b600c3387444c3bb960510fd9f9d72aa034

    This is not a perfunctory trip. Mr. Wyler and his camera crew have distilled chuckles too as a sightseeing junket in such stops because the Princess acquiring a brand new coiffure; a perfectly wild motorscooter ride through Roman streets, alleys and market places winding up having a session inside a police station, and an uproarious dance on one from the barges on the Tiber that terminates using the princess and her swain battling and escaping from the sleuths sent to track her down. The cameras also have captured the raucous sounds as well as the varied sights of a bustling, workaday Rome; of sidewalk cafes; from the Pantheon; the Forum; and of such different landmarks as the Castel Sant’ Angelo along with the rococo, mirrored grandeur with the Colonna, Brancaccio and Barberini Palazzi.

    While she just isn't precisely a newcomer to films Audrey Hepburn, the British actress who is being starred for the first time as Princess Anne, is actually a slender, elfin and wistful beauty, alternately regal and childlike in her profound appreciation of newly-found, easy pleasures and enjoy. Though she bravely smiles her acknowledgment with the end of that affair, she remains a pitifully lonely figure facing a stuffy future. Gregory Peck tends to make a stalwart and manly escort and lover, whose eyes belie his restrained exterior. And it really is altogether fitting that he eschews the likelihood at that exclusive story thinking of the circumstances.
    tumblr_mlfg52zRax1ruzgoro1_500_large
    Eddie Albert is fantastic as the bewildered, bewhiskered and breezy photographer who surreptitiously snaps the unwitting princess on her tour. Hartley Energy, as the bureau chief of Mr. Peck’s news agency; Paolo Carlini, as an amorous barber; Claudio Ermelli, as a janitor; Alberto Rizzo, as a timorous cabbie; Harcourt Williams, Tullio Carminati and Margaret Rawlings, as Miss Hepburn’s official aides and an echelon of actual Rome correspondents, assistance give the proceedings authenticity and flavor. It really is a short vacation in which they are involved but an entirely pleasureable one.
