Will Ferrell's new Spanish language film ipays "homage" to his Spanish teachers.
The comedian speaks entirely in Spanish in Casa de mi Padre, and tried particularly hard to make his accent and phrasing realistic.
"This is all an homage to all my former Spanish teachers to show them that I was listening. I was paying attention. I wanted my Spanish to be as good as it could be - I didn't want the joke to just be that I was speaking bad Spanish," he said.
In the film Will plays a rancher who falls in love with his brother's fiancee, and discovers he has been using shady business practices, landing the family in trouble with a drug baron. Will added it was a good opportunity for him to make fun of a few stereotypes as well as take off Mexican soap operas:
Rihanna has been spotted making a midnight visit to Ashton Kutcher's house.
The "You Da One" singer visited the Two and a Half Men star at around 12am on Wednesday, and didn't leave until four hours later.
Rihanna, 24, arrived with her entourage at the five-bedroom Los Angeles property in a black 4x4 vehicle. The purpose of her visit is not known, but Ashton, 34, is said to be moving out of the rented property soon, as it has reportedly been sold to "Boyfriend" singer Justin Bieber for $10 million.
Ashton moved into the $50,000-a-month house a few months ago and reportedly fell in love with the house because it was an ideal "bachelor pad." The eight bathroom property comes complete with a floating dining room, infinity swimming pool, hot tub, private screening room and an open sky terrace.
"Ashton loved this property. It has bachelor pad written all over it. This neighborhood is stunning. It's a trophy house with a view of all of Los Angeles. It's totally the type of place a hot, single Hollywood guy would want," a source said at the time.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has admitted he's addicted to prescription pills.
The Jersey Shore star recently checked into an undisclosed facility for "much needed rest and recuperation" and has now revealed he is seeking treatment for his reliance on prescription medication.
"I wanted to to set the record straight. I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion. I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys," the reality star said in a post on his Facebook page.
A representative for The Situation - who recently underwent a promotional tour of Australia - had initially claimed the reality TV star wasn't being treated for drug abuse: "He is not in rehab for substance abuse. He has spent the last several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule."
Russell Brand has given $630 to a homeless man.
The 36-year-old Arthur star reportedly saw the man was down on his luck and decided to help him out.
"Russ decided to do something charitable. He met a homeless guy on Hollywood Boulevard, just around the corner from the home he shared with Katy Perry. Russ was with his new girlfriend and they struck up a conversation with the guy. After chatting for a few minutes he decided he wanted to get him a roof over his head for a few nights. So he went over the road and withdrew $630 for him. When Russell handed over the wad of cash, the fella had tears in his eyes. Russ told him to spend it wisely and to make sure he says 'Hello' if they ever cross paths again," a source told The Daily Star.
Meanwhile, the comedian has introduced mum Barbara to new girlfriend, model Nikolett Barabas. The trio were spotted helping Russell house hunt in Los Angeles over the weekend following his arrest for allegedly throwing a paparazzo's iPhone through a window last week.
Whitney Houston's boyfriend Ray J reportedly made "a ton" of sex tapes with the late singer.
It is claimed the 31-year-old rapper - who famously starred in a sex tape with Kim Kardashian - has a whole raft of racy films and pictures made during his on-and-off relationship Whitney.
According to Star magazine, the Houstons have begged him not to release anything - but Ray strongly denies any such material exists.
"The Houstons have] been in contact with Ray and told him they do not want any photos or videos painting her in a bad light to come out. [They] explained to Ray that now is the time to honor Whitney, not drag her legacy down," a source said.
But Courtney Barnes, spokesman for Ray J blasted the accusations, telling the Daily Mail newspaper, "The despicable tabloid report claiming the existence of a sex tape between Ray J and Whitney Houston is not true. There is no sex tape. This story along with so many others have been released to sell magazines. There is no sex tape or explicit photos."
Kris Humphries is planning to "set the record straight" about his marriage to Kim Kardashian.
The NBA player has responded to claims he is seeking a $7 million settlement from the reality star despite having signed a pre-nuptial agreement that entitles him to nothing.
"No demands have been made. While we are encouraged to see an apparent willingness by the other side to put big numbers out in an attempt to settle Mr. Humphries' claims, we respect and will continue to observe the integrity of the legal process. One thing is certain: Kris Humphries intends to set the record straight," his lawyers said in a statement.
Meanwhile, his legal team has vowed to give Kris his day in court. "Much effort and energy to misdirect the public's perception of what transpired between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries has taken place over the past several months. This case will not be resolved in the court of public opinion amidst ridiculous and defamatory allegations and personal attacks directed against Kris Humphries. Rather, this case will be appropriately investigated and litigated professionally and with integrity," the statement continued.
Justin Bieber refuses to hide his relationship with Selena Gomez.
The couple - who first started dating in 2010 - are often photographed holding hands or enjoying quality time together, and the 18-year-old "Baby" singer believes it would be "unhealthy" to have it any other way.
"There's no way to hide the relationship completely, because then it would be unfair to us. It's like, 'You take this car, and I'll take this car, and then we'll meet up at the spot. Then, you go in this door, I'll go in this door. We'll end up crossing ways. You get back in this car. We'll cross over, do a James Bond. You go through the kitchen. I'll go through the back area. Then we'll meet in the dressing room and see each other.' At that point, it's not even a relationship. You're just hiding from everyone. That's unfair and unhealthy," he said.
His manager Scooter Braun also told Complex magazine that despite the money, cars and adventures, Justin isn't entirely comfortable with fame: "[He] doesn't like being famous. He struggles with not being normal. I'm constantly telling him, 'You're not normal, and since you're having an extraordinary life, I'm holding to you extraordinary standards.'"
Kim Kardashian still feels married.
The 31-year-old reality star filed for divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries after just 72-days of marriage in October, but insists she hasn't put herself back on the market.
Addressing rumors she has been hooking up with long-time friend Kanye West, she said, "I think I'm still married. I'm really not dating right now at all. I'm really just focusing on work. I know I always say this, but I'm trying to just get through my situation and just have fun."
Mad Men actor Jon Hamm recently took aim at Kim and fellow socialite Paris Hilton as part of a rant about Hollywood celebrity culture - but Kim is adamant did not take his comments personally. Appearing on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, she said, "I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, not everyone takes the same path in life. We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. I just feel like, to be honest, it's all about trying to stay focused and keeping everything positive. It really takes a lot more energy and effort to be harsh than to say something nice and be positive."
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was allegedly doing drugs "for years."
The Jersey Shore star recently checked into an undisclosed facility for "much needed rest and recuperation" and despite his management insisting he wasn't receiving treatment for substance abuse, his former co-star Angelina Pivarnik claims he's had a long-running history with drugs.
"I don't understand how nobody caught on to him doing a mass amount of drugs! Obviously he's been using the money not for charity, and stuff like that to help kids out, to help people that are less fortunate, but using blow," she said.
Angelina says Mike should have got help for his addictions years ago and thinks he needs to spend a long time in rehab: "He's hideous! He's Popeye on crack. He deserves to freakin' stay in rehab for the next 10 years! Please stay in the rehab and don't come out! I can't believe he didn't go to rehab three years ago."
The house where Michael Jackson died has gone up for sale. The Beverly Hills mansion - in which the "Thriller" singer passed away from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 aged 50 - went on the market on Monday for $23.9 million and, according to gossip website TMZ, a '"major celebrity" will look at it tomorrow.
The realtor - Mauricio Umansky, the CEO and co-founder of The Agency in Beverly Hills - will only show the property to serious buyers who have pre-qualified by proving they have the cash to buy the home.
The property - which Michael rented and lived in with his three children, Prince, 15, Paris, 14, and 10-year-old Blanket - has been on and off the market since the "Man in the Mirror" hitmaker died and is completely empty.
