Ciara flaunts growing baby bump in black-and-white dress on AMA red carpet

Touchdown! Ciara showed off her baby bump on the red carpet at the American Music Awards Sunday night in a stunning black-and-white dress. The turtleneck top wrapped the growing baby bump while her high-low black-and white skirt allowed Ciara to flaunt her strappy heels. “I’m feeling great. I’m feeling awesome, actually,” the mommy-to-be told E! News in a red carpet interview. “Finally getting to a place where I feel almost normal. It was a bit of a ‘I don’t want to throw up, but I don’t feel regular.’ I’m in between. That’s almost worse. You’d rather just throw up and get it done!” The 30-year-old singer first announced that she and the Seahawks quarterback were expecting their first child together in October — the two were famously celibate before getting married in July. Ciara already has a 2-year-old son with ex-boyfriend Future. Continue Reading

Seth Rogen brings PBR to the ‘Sausage Party’ red carpet

Seth Rogen is an innovator — but not because he drinks beer while doing red carpet interviews. “It’s a Pabst,” he told us at a Lower East Side screening of his animated film “Sausage Party.” Rogen confessed this isn’t the first time a can of beer has been carried onto a red carpet. “No, not by a longshot,” he laughed. Rogen does however take credit for being a pioneer in dirty cartoon making. “(This film is) Very R-Rated,” he bragged. “One of the most R-rated movies most people will probably ever have seen ... It's the first ever fully CG R-rated movie.” According to Rogen, “Sausage Party” had to be butchered a bit because it was so smutty. “There is a scene at the end that will probably turn out to be one of the dirtiest things you've seen in a movie,” he warned. “It was a little bit dirtier. And we had to just trim it back microscopically in order to get it where it was.” For Rogen, the wacky notion of making an animated film about the trials and tribulations of talking food -- including sausages -- was an idea that just spoke to him. “Some things are just beautifully kismet is the word,” he explained. Rogen, 34, says his body tells him what to eat these days. “I'm just at the age where if I'm not generally healthy, I feel like sh-t and am in physical pain all the time,” he said. “So I have to eat well and exercise, or I am literally in immense pain.” Also attending the screening at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema, where someone dressed as a hot dog walked the red carpet, were actors James Franco and Paul Rudd, chef Anne Burrell and food writer Gail Simmons.

Emmy Awards 2013: Claire Danes crashes Lena Dunham’s red carpet interview, goes on to win award over Kerry Washington

Not only did Claire Danes win big for the second year in a row, but she also revealed her secret Hollywood BFF at Emmy Awards — Lena Dunham. In an epic clip, the “Homeland” actress snuck up on the “Girls” star while she was chatting with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet before the show. "I am just so excited because you are my really good friend and I never get to see you," Dunham happily said as the two girls grabbed  the mic from Seacrest to engage in their own interview. "We met through an old friend, " Dunham explained when asked how the duo met. "We grew up in the same neighborhood," Danes added. "She's my favorite actress," Dunham said of Danes. The 26-year-old show creator said she would love to cast Danes in something, but she works on Showtime and she works on competing network, HBO. Danes then referenced the friendly rivalry to the "Romeo and Juliet" story saying, "it's very Capulet and Montague." Also fans may have noticed Danes sporting a shorter hairdo Sunday night, but those who are in favor of her longer blond locks need not to worry, the actress was merely rocking a faux bob. The 34-year-old starlet went on to win the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as bipolar CIA agent Carrie Matheson on the hit show "Homeland." Danes won over "Scandal" star Kerry Washington, who was in line to make history if she took home the trophy as the first African-American actress to ever to receive an Emmy Award for a lead actress role.   Join the Conversation: Continue Reading

Jared Leto flirts with ‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke on SAG Awards red carpet

Jared Leto might want to catch up on "Game of Thrones." The "Dallas Buyers Club" actor was mesmerized by actress Emilia Clarke at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, after catching her in a red carpet interview with E! News and unabashedly flirting with her. "I haven't seen your show, but I know people are obsessed with it and say it's absolutely amazing," Leto, 42, told Clarke when he met the British beauty. "See, I know your band," Clarke, 26, told the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman. "And I've seen your movie." While Clarke's interview with Giuliana Rancic was over, Leto wouldn't let the starlet leave — keeping his arm around her shoulder. "I haven't finished here," he said. "There's work yet to be done." "Have you looked into her eyes? They're absolutely insane." Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on the hit HBO show, admitted that she was starting to blush at Leto's strong come on. "This guy knows how to speak to ladies," she joked. E! News facilitated the potential hook-up by zooming in on Clarke's eyes, and then doing the same for Leto. After a few more exchanges about his "incredible" Oscar-nominated performance in "Dallas Buyer's Club," Leto continued his interview with the network alone. No word yet on whether numbers were later exchanged, but Leto and Clarke are both reportedly single. He went on to continue his awards season sweep with a SAG win, while Clarke's "Thrones" was shut out by season favorite drama "Breaking Bad." Join the Conversation: Continue Reading

Jennifer Lawrence horrified after ‘Homeland’ season finale shocker is spoiled for her on SAG Awards red carpet

Jennifer Lawrence has proven to be a capable actress – but the 23-year-old star couldn’t even pretend to be unfazed when a red carpet interviewer spoiled the shocking ending of “Homeland’s” third season. The unscripted drama played out on the red carpet at Saturday’s SAG Awards while the “American Hustle” star was being interviewed by “Access Hollywood’s” Shaun Robinson when she spied “Homeland’s” Damien Lewis on the platform next to her. Obviously excited to see the red-headed British actor in person, Lawrence seemed star struck. “Somebody has watched two seasons of ‘Homeland’ twice,” she gushed. “And I’m freaking out a bit.” “Do you want to meet him now?” asked Robinson. “No, don’t look,” said a blushing Lawrence, “Be cool, be cool!” When Robinson ignored her request and flagged over Lewis, Lawrence reacted by hugging a partition and shouting, “I love ‘Homeland’ so much. It’s the greatest show ever, oh my God.” After, the two hugged and exchanged pleasantries. WARNING: IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE THIRD SEASON FINALE OF ‘HOMELAND’ YET DON’T READ ANY FURTHER, EVEN THOUGH IT’S A REALLY CUTE VIDEO. Then Robinson and her AccessHollywood.com cohort Laura Saltman, who had been interviewing Lewis, took it one step too far, blurting out that Lewis’ character, Nicholas Brody, was killed off at the end of last season. That came as news to the visibly shocked Lawrence, who was waiting for the Season 3 DVD release to catch up on her viewing. “Don’t tell her, it’s a spoiler!” shouted Lewis, before deadpanning, “No they haven’t, these two are crazy.” “I can’t believe you said that,” Continue Reading

The stars of ‘The Avengers’ hit the red carpet at Hollywood premiere

The Avengers assembled Wednesday for a supersized red-carpet premiere even by Tinseltown standards. With the entire main cast of "The Avengers" — Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo — in fighting shape for the event at the El Captitan Theatre in Hollywood, there were plenty of celebrities in the theater and even more costumed fanboys screaming behind the barricades. But it wasn’t all glitz and glamour, Scarlett Johansson said on the red carpet. “Going back day after day, knowing you’re going to get the crap beat of you and doing it willingly is a challenge in itself, a mental challenge,” said Johansson, who reprises her Black Widow character from “Iron Man 2.” “But I have to say every time you fail at a stunt it hurts.” The most bizarre part of the whole experience for Mark Ruffalo was seeing his facial features superimposed on the Hulk. “It scared the hell out of me, because it reminded me of my dad when he was really, really angry,” said the actor. “Dancing With the Stars” dancer Chelsie Hightower said she was there because she had a huge crush on Chris Hemsworth. “Thor is my dude. I’ve see that movie like seven times,” she said. “[If I met him] I probably wouldn’t cry, but I probably would go shy.” “She would cry,” quipped her “DWTS” partner, Disney Channel star Roshon Fegan, who got his first big break on 2004’s “Spider-Man 2” in a bit credited as “Amazed Kid.” He’s still amazed, he said. Stan Lee, who co-created the superteam for Marvel Comics with artist Jack Kirby, said he was eager to skip the red-carpet interview and see the movie he’s been dreaming about since 1963. “There’s never been a movie that has so many super characters in one films, and everyone of Continue Reading

Rainn Wilson confirms ‘The Office’ spinoff in the works during SAG Awards red carpet interview

It turns out all "The Office" water-cooler gossip is true. Rainn Wilson confirmed that NBC is developing a spinoff of the hit sitcom centered on his character, Dwight Schrute, during a live television interview on the red carpet of Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards during the network’s live red carpet coverage that, "We’re talking about a Dwight Schrute spinoff that could be really cool,” the actor told E!'s Giuliana Rancic. “[The show\] would have a crazy menagerie of characters...It would be even more far out and weird than ‘The Office.’" Sources told Deadline.com, which originally broke the news of the spinoff last week, that the concept involves Dwight living at his family's beet farm and bed & breakfast with an eccentric collection of family members — and would be tested as an episode of "The Office" this season. Wilson is expected to continue to man his cubicle at Dunder Mifflin for the near future with the spinoff eyed for a midseason 2013 slot. The network is expected to renew "The Office" — which survived the departure of series star Steve Carrell last season — for a ninth go-around. Join the Conversation: Continue Reading

For 2 Fordham students, red-carpet interviewing gig makes them … Oscar contenders

Two Fordham University students may get a turn on the red carpet on Sunday's Academy Awards - and a chance to ask glammed-up celebs, "Who are you wearing?" Seniors Justin Shackil and Garry Van Genderen are among three teams of finalists in an mtvU contest that sends the winners - camera and microphone in hand - to the star-studded pre-Oscars catwalk. "To be in the most prestigious award show and actually work it, it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Shackil, 22, the anchor among the duo. The Wayne, N.J., native and his behind-the-camera partner bested over 100 other college correspondent teams. They're off to Hollywood on Thursday to cover pre-Oscars events. The winning team will be announced Friday and receive a red-carpet spot and backstage passes. "We wanted to open up the Oscars to college journalists," said Carlo DiMarco, vice president of university relations for mtvU, an MTV-owned channel available on more than 750 campuses. "I'm really excited about it," said Van Genderen, 22, of Glen Rock, N.J., a science major who has been involved in video production for more than seven years. "I never thought it would lead me to Hollywood in any form." In their two-minute clip, Shackil, a communications major and "Entertainment Tonight" intern, questions a host of Fordham students on their favorite flicks and about his own interviewing skills. "I just wanted to make it as real as possible, and everything was on the fly," Shackil said. The video is now up against two entries: one from Rice University and another from San Diego State University. To watch it and vote, visit oscars.mtvu.com. A confident Shackil said he plans more in-depth queries than the usual ones about dress designers and hopes to sneak in a question to his favorite actor and fellow Fordham graduate, Denzel Washington. "If I've gotten this far, I expect to win," he said. Join the Conversation: Continue Reading
