Aniston, Gerard Butler ¡°had a blast¡± making ¡®The Bounty Hunter¡¯

Post image for Aniston, Gerard Butler

Jennifer Aniston got cosy with Gerard Butler on the red carpet in London.

The 'Break-Up' actress flaunted a mini dress even in the cold weather.

The pair was present to promote their new movie 'The Bounty Hunter'.

“We have a blast together and she appreciates that Celtic manner,” the Telegraph quoted Butler as saying.

He added: “There’’s nothing diva-ish about her, she’’s very down to earth, very sure of herself and who she is, and I”m like a little kid, who doesn”t take myself too seriously.

“We had a fun script and a great director, so we just had to dive in and it was a blast.”

Meanwhile, Aniston added: “I love my Gerry. We just lucked out – director fantastic, Gerry fantastic, our crew, New York – you just can”t go wrong.”

Meet Atul Mongia, Dibakar Banerjee¡¯s man Friday for LSD

Dibakar Banerjee 300x224 Meet Atul Mongia, Dibakar Banerjees man Friday for LSDThere isn’t one recognisable face in “Love Sex Aur Dhokha” (LSD), yet audiences are flocking to see the actors. Behind this casting coup of a different kind is Atul Mongia, the man who selected and trained them.

“The vision was director Dibakar Banerjee’s. He gave me a brief for each character. It was up to me to find the perfect fit,” Mongia, who also acted in the film, told IANS.

Most of the actors in LSD – audiences are raving about them – faced the camera for the first time.

“There’s an actor in each one of us. All of us play ourselves. Those who can play others as well are actors,” says Mongia. “My job was to bring the actor out in each individual in the film.”

How he found his actors is sometimes funny and often strange.

Neha Chauhan, who plays Rashmi in the second story, was discovered by Banerjee from a marriage video. Sandeep Bose, who is seen as the father in the first story, is actually a casting director who was providing actors for LSD. And Namrata Rao, whose bitchy portrayal of the day-time sales girl in the second story has earned her a fan following, is the editor of the film.

The challenges for an actor in LSD were many. The actors were also carrying the camera and choreographing the scenes. There was no ‘action’ and ‘cut’. Most often there were only the actors with cameras on them. The shots were long. This meant the actors had to hold their presence on screen longer, and improvise when need be instead of sticking to the script as with other films.

Even established actors find it difficult to give long shots; so how did Mongia make first timers do it?

For over two months, Mongia, a former acting instructor at Barry John’s theatre school, trained the cast, breaking them down physically and emotionally to get them into the skin of their characters.

Arya Banerjee, who plays Naina, took a month before she gave in. Others required wit.

Raj Kumar Yadav, who plays Adarsh in the second story, was too sweet while his character required darker shades that he was unable to explore properly.

One day Mongia and Kanu Behl, co-writer, assistant director, told him they had heard he would be kicked out. That did the trick. In the workshop later that day, Raj demonstrated a range of emotions that surprised everyone.

About Mongia also being assistant director and actor in LSD, he said: “The schedules for each never clashed.”

On being asked who cast the casting director, he laughs, “It was Dibakar’s idea. I told him I would get him a good actor to play the brother in the first part, but he insisted I do the part.”

That was Banerjee’s masterstroke. Ask anyone about the scene he remembers from the movie and it would invariably be that of Mongia’s big bulging eyes staring at the camera before hacking the lovers to death.

Banerjee says of his casting coup, “There’s no shortage of good actors. Mumbai has an untapped talent pool of great actors. The rarer commodity is good casting. Atul did just that. First he selected the actors and then with Kanu worked for months to remove the layers of Bollywood acting style in them. They handled the entire crisis. I came in at the end. When the meat was properly marinated, I came in and put the sauce.”

Mongia meanwhile is awaiting the release of “Shor” that he has done the casting for, while he is also busy casting for two other films. “Both are challenging,” he says.

How does an aspiring actor reach him? “At atulcasting@gmail.com.” And would he cast and train unknowns? “I already have, a full film load, haven’t I?” he winks.

Charlotte Church drops diamond engagement ring down plughole!

Post image for Charlotte Church drops diamond engagement ring down plughole!

Welsh singer/songwriter Charlotte Church is said to have flown into a tizzy when her new diamond engagement ring dropped down a plughole while she was washing her hands.

Church, 24, was left horrified when the ring disappeared in a bathroom basin at the Welsh farmhouse she shares with rugby star fiance Gavin Henson, who was not at home at the time.

Plumber Andy Ward was about to set off on holiday when he got the frantic call to Church's 20-acre home at St Brides Major, near Bridgend.

"The ring was trapped in the U-bend and Andy found it within minutes. Charlotte was incredibly relieved," the Mirror quoted a friend as saying.

The mum-of-two had been given the ring by Henson, 28, after her 24th birthday in February.

The two plan to marry on an island hideaway.

Jake Gyllenhaal Has Fear of Ostriches

Post image for Jake Gyllenhaal Has Fear of Ostriches

The actor Jake Gyllenhaal is now working hard in order to impersonate the fearless hero. As a matter of fact, the actor is playing the role of Prince Dastan in the film, known as Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. To become a real hero, Jake Gyllenhaal is mastering the acrobatic art of parkour and also sword fighting.

But there is one thing that the actor is unable to conquer, i.e. his fear of ostriches.

When he was preparing for the film he was warned not to make any noise around the ostriches. It was explained by the fact that they are able to rip out the heart of the actor as well as tear out his eyes. For that reason Jake Gyllenhaal, 29, was terrified. The actor said that they look like they are innocent but that is not true.

Gemma Arterton is a costar of Gyllenhaal and is able to attest the level of fear of the actor. It was said by Gemma Arterton that Gyllenhaal looked really scared. When he first saw them, he ran away and said that he was not going to act.

Arterton, 24, plays the role of Princess Tamina. It looks like that she is more experienced with animals. During two weeks she rehearsed in order to do a horse-riding stunt. In the film she has to jump onto a horse when it was galloping towards her. It was a bit scary for the actress, but managed to do that, which made her proud of herself.

Virgin Of The Rocks

Virgin Of The RocksVirgin Of The Rocks,? A restoration project for Leonardo da Vinci’s “Virgin of the Rocks” has revealed new details and suggests the Renaissance artist may have painted all the picture himself, instead of with his assistants as previously thought, a British gallery said Wednesday.The 18-month conservation project involved removing much of some badly degraded varnish that was applied to the painting in the late 1940s, enabling experts to take a much closer look at the picture’s brush strokes and styles, the National Gallery said. The cleaning revealed the painting’s full tonal range, especially in the darker areas, and resulted in a clearer sense of how the artist intended for space to recede through the rocky landscape, the gallery said.

It also affirmed that Leonardo likely painted the entire picture himself and intended for it to be unfinished.

The restored painting showed a range of completion from the barely sketched hand of the angel to the fully realized heads of the main figures ― consistent with many of Leonardo’s works. The Italian artist, said to be the “eternal perfectionist,” is thought to have left his pictures unfinished because he wished to return to them later, gallery spokesman Thomas Almeroth-Williams said.

In the past, scholars believed the different levels of finish in “Virgin of the Rocks” showed that Leonardo was helped by assistants.

The painting dates from about 1491 to 1508 and is a later version of one on display in the Louvre in Paris.

The latest cleaning project followed years of scrutiny of the masterpiece.

In 2005, experts using infrared technology found two drawings hidden beneath the surface of the picture ― one design was never painted, and the second one revealed Leonardo changed his mind about the subject several times.

The painting goes back on display in the National Gallery on Wednesday.

Post image for Jordan 'to reveal X-rated truth about ex Peter Andre in film on her life'

Katie Price a.k.a. Jordan is set to dish out all the dirt on her ex-husband singer Peter Andre in a sexplosive film of her life.

Jordan, 31, who is in LA for the Oscars, has already held talks with a top Hollywood producer to tell all about 37-year-old Andre's saucy secrets and the real reason behind their split.

The film would be about Jordan's brush with child sex abuse, her rollercoaster rise to the top, her marriage to the pop star and what happened as their marriage fell apart amid rumours of affairs and an abortion.

"Kate's had an amazing life and a film would be dynamite," the Daily Star quoted a source as saying.

"It would have everything � love, sex, passion, heartbreak and tragedy.

"If it is packaged as fiction it would give her even more licence to reveal everything. Pete must be quaking in his boots," the source added.

The action-packed film would also cover Jordan's Vegas wedding to Alex Reid, 34, and detail her string of famous lovers.

Ranjitha Suicide Attempt (Tamil Actress in Swami Nithyananda tape  attempts suicide): In the latest news on the Swami Nithyanand Sex tape  scandal, it has been reported that Ranjitha, the tamil actress who  appeared in the tape, has attempted suicide yesterday.

Rare MJ portrait up for grabs online

Post image for Rare MJ portrait up for grabs online

The only portrait King of Pop Michael Jackson ever sat for is up for grabs online.

Jackson posed for the first and the last time when Australian painter and sculptor Brett Livingstone Strong persuaded him to sit for a portrait in 1990.

The portrait had Jackson sitting in a virtual room. The late legend is holding a book and wearing a frilled velvet jacket. Japanese businessman Hiromichi Saeki bought the painting the same year for 1.4 million pounds, reports The Daily Star.

Toy inventor Marty Abrams then possessed the painting in 1992. It was a payment of debt by Hiromichi to Abrams, and is still owned by Marty. The painting is now seeking a new owner.

The artwork has been listed on ebay.com and the auction ends on April 12 2010.

Abrams said that the value of the portrait in 2000 was 3.5 million pounds. But after the death of the legendary singer, the portrait might sell for quite a handsome amount.

“I”ve had it an awful long time. With the positive response to his music and the movie about him after his death, we thought it was a good time to sell it and for the world to see it,” he said.

Jack Tweed says sex was consensual

Post image for Jack Tweed says <a href='http://entertainment-new-blog.blogspot.com/' target='_blank' class='infotextkey'>sex</a> was consensual

Jack Tweed has denied in court that he raped a teenage girl, and insisted that she was a willing participant.

Tweed, 22, who has been accused of raping the girl on September 4 last year, also told a jury he didn”t even notice his friend and co-accused Anthony Davis, 26, was in the room until he knelt on the bed to join in.

Tweed said the alleged victim, then 19, did not push him away or tell him to stop as they had sex at his Essex bachelor pad.

Giving evidence at Snaresbrook Crown Court, Tweed said the woman was kissing him back and running her hands through his hair.

He spoke clearly and confidently to the jury, at times even demonstrating the position he and the woman were stood in as they had sex.

And he claimed he only went into the room with her after she asked him for socks and tracksuit bottoms.

“She just kept asking for socks and I said ”go and check in there” and pointed to the bedroom,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

“She said ”come and show me, come help me look for them”. I walked in there and walked around the far side of the bedroom.

“I turned around and she was standing right behind me and we looked at each other and just started kissing,” he said.

Tweed described how they began to have sex by the windowsill.

“Did she at any time say ”don”t do that?” Did she indicate in any way that she didn”t want you to do that?” his barrister Ronald Jaffa asked him.

Tweed replied “no” to both questions.

He added he heard the bedroom door open then close quickly. He said he didn”t realise pal Davis had entered the room.

Minutes later, the property developer walked over to the bed, knelt in front of the woman and she gave him oral sex, Tweed claimed.

Tweed is said to have met the woman and her three friends at Mayfair nightspot The Embassy where he was working as a club promoter that night.

But he claims he did not remember speaking to any of them at the club and was only introduced to them at his home in Repton Park.

Tweed denies two counts of rape. Davis, of Chigwell, Essex, denies oral rape. The case continues.

After modeling for some time, Lisa tried out for various acting roles. However it was in 1993 when she met the man of her dreams.

Jean Danker

jean dankerLatest Update News About Jean Danker: There was news of Jamie Yeo's engagement with Englishman Thorsten Nolte. So sudden isn't it? I mean after a failed marriage, 1 year later remarried again…. I guess we should just wish her better luck this time around! Personally, though, I wouldn't feel that 1 year of getting attached is sufficient for a couple to tie the knot. 1 year of being intimate with someone care barely count for anything, especially if you intend to spend the rest of your life with the person. I guess since Jamie's biological clock is ticking, she won't be able to wait another few years before deciding?

Glenn Ong, on the other hand, seems to like hopping from one DJ to another. I get that dating someone in the same profession is easy, since you guys share similar schedule and work stressors. But take it slowly with Jean Danker ok! So far there's no news of the

m getting married, but I think they seem quite compatible too.

Hrithik¡¯s on a spiritual high

Hrithik's on a spiritual highOkay, so Kites didn't soar too high and far, after all. Damn that. Our gorgeous poster boy, Hrithik, Roshan has apparently made a splash in the West, and some Hollywood beauties have their eyes set on him too.

But on a more personal note, Hrithik is on different high. No romantic angle to this story, sorry lovelies. It's a spiritual high we're talking about. Yeah, the man is on a spiritual journey (don't worry gals, he will still bare his chest, kiss the beauties and romance them stylishly from Mumbai to Mexico), but in his own words, "I have become more spiritual," says the Roshan boy.

He adds, "Sometime ago when someone would call my father taklu, I would take offense and want to beat up the guy. But now when I think of it I realise, yes, my father is bald. So there's no point getting angry about it. I have become much calmer." So we wonder what the spiritual superhero does when rumours of his link-ups rocks his blissful married life. He quickly defends, "Sussanne is far more spiritual than I am." Hmm… what more do we say? We can see the halo already, dearie.

Hitman Reborn 298

Hitman Reborn 298Hitman Reborn 298, E n?o é que KHR! acaba de ficar intrigantemente promissor? Bacana também que o mangá tenha ultrapassado o seu sexto ano de publica??o ininterrupta. Só um mero detalhe mexeu com a minha memória: o fato de Tsuna n?o ter reconhecido o Nono, afinal eles já n?o se encontraram? Pelo que eu me lembra lá na batalha dos anéis contra o Xanxus, n?o era este personagem que estava dentro do Gola Mosca que Tsuna abateu? Todo mundo que estava naquele dia da batalha, incluindo o Tsuna, viu o Nono ali, quase morto. Enfim, talvez eu tenha esquecido algum detalhe.

Indepente deste detalhe, achei interessantíssimo o fato de Tsuna ser o cara que irá destruir e reconstruir uma nova Vongola, o Nono praticamente incubiu Tsuna de destruir a máfia mundial na minha intepreta??o. Em quantas dire??es sensacionais isso pode levar o mangá! N?o trata-se mais apenas de um garoto se tornando chefe da máfia, e sim de limpar a corrup??o e assassinados do mundo! Claro que é um pensamento em larga escala e em dire??es um pouco mais específicas, n?o estou falando da utópica paz mundial, mas do jeito que as coisas v?o atualmente no mundo, n?o é de todo ruim uma história onde o personagem visa melhorar o ideal de paz, nem que seja numa pequena propor??o, como as ramifica??es da máfia. é óbvio que Tsuna vai dizer sim na cerim?nia de heran?a.

Outro momento interessante do capítulo envolve a Adelheid. Semana passada alguns leitores nos comentários ficaram um tanto em dúvida se seria ela ou n?o responsável pelo ataque a família Giegue. Pra mim n?o existe mais essa dúvida, ainda mais no come?o desta capítulo onde a quadros e mais quadros com a personagem com aquele olhar de quem é culpada, mas ninguém ainda se tocou. Muito bom mesmo as sutilezas da autora, sem deixar explicitamente que ela é a culpada (o que pra mim é 100% de certeza que é).

Por fim, o capítulo termina com outro objeto misterioso da Vongola, a caixa com o pequeno frasco dentro dela. O "Pecado da Vongola". Carambolas, eu n?o fa?o a menor idéia do que seja isso e o que acarretará nos eventos do próximo capítulo, só sei que KHR! deu um enorme salto de tens?o pra mim neste capítulo e as coisa só tendem a ficar mais e mais empolgantes acredito. E foi ótimo ver um capítulo totalmente dedicado ao Tsuna.

Shammi Kapoor

Shammi Kapoor, Born on: October 21, 1931

Born in: Mumbai, India

Nationality: Indian

Career: Actor

Shammi Kapoor, hailed to be the 'Elvis Presley of India', is one of the finest actors that Bollywood has ever produced. He was the leading star of Bollywood during the late 1950s as well as the 1960s. One of the successful sons of film and theatre actor Prithviraj Kapoor, Shammi was extremely versatile as an actor. He debuted in Bollywood in 1953, with the film 'Jeevan Jyoti' and went on to deliver hits like ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’, ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, ‘Junglee’, ‘China Town’, 'Professor', 'Rajkumar', 'Teesri Manzil', 'An Evening In Paris', 'Bramhachari', and 'Andaaz'.


Shammi Kapoor was born as 'Shamsher Raj Kapoor' on 21st October 1931, in Mumbai, India. Popular by his pet name 'Shammi', Kapoor is the son of Prithviraj Kapoor, film and theatre actor, and his wife, Rama Kapoor. Though he was born in Mumbai, he spent a major portion of his childhood in Kolkata, where his father was involved with New Theatres Studios, acting in films. It was in Kolkata only that he did his Monntessary and Kindergarten. After coming back to Mumbai, he went, first to, St. Joseph’s Convent (Wadala) and then, to Don Bosco School. Shammi Kapoor finished his schooling from New Era School, at Hughes Road.

Early Life and Entry in Films Shammi Kapoor had a short stint at the Ruia College, after which he joined his father's theatrical company “Prithvi Theatres”. He entered the world of cinema in 1948, as a junior artiste, at a salary of Rs.50 per month. Kapoor stayed with Prithvi Theatres for the next four years and collected his last paycheck, being Rs.300, in the year 1952. He made his debut in Bollywood in the year 1953, when the film 'Jeevan Jyoti' was released. It was directed by Mr. Mahesh Kaul and Chand Usmani was Kapoor's first heroine.

Film Career

Shammi Kapoor was known as the 'Elvis Presley of India', for his amusing and energetic roles as well as his amazing dance sequences. Though he started out with serious films, comedy films gradually became his forte. Movies like 'Tumsa Nahin Dekha' (his first big hit) and 'Dil Deke Dekho' established him in the roles of a light hearted playboy. Some time later, he starred in 'Junglee' (1961) and his new image got consolidated. Majority of his successful films belonged to the same genre. Mohammed Rafi, one of Kapoor's friends, was his most preferred choice as his playback voice. In his initial years in Bollywood, Kapoor appeared with established heroines like Madhubala, playing second fiddle to them. With time, he started being paired more often with new heroines. Out of them, Asha Parekh, Saira Banu, and Sharmila Tagore became huge stars in the future. In the first half of the 1960s, Kapoor was seen in successful films like 'Professor', 'China Town', 'Char Dil Char Rahen', 'Raat ke Raahi', 'Dil Tera Diwana', 'Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya', 'China Town', 'Kashmir Ki Kali', 'Bluff Master', 'Janwar' and 'Rajkumar'. In 1968, he received the first Filmfare Award of his career, for 'Best Actor' (Brahmachari).

In the 1970s, Kapoor's weight problem proved an obstacle in his path of success and ended his career as a romantic hero. One of his last hits, in which he played the lead role, was 'Andaz' (1971). With time, he moved to career roles and acted in films like 'Zameer', 'Hero' and 'Vidhaata'. In 1974, he donned the hat of a director and made 'Manoranjan', a film based on Irma La Douce. Two years later, he made 'Bandalbaaz' (1976). However, both the films failed to create magic at the box office. His last appearance, as a character actor, was in the delayed 2006 film, 'Sandwich'.

Personal Life Shammi Kapoor met Geeta Bali in the year 1955, during the shooting of the film 'Rangeen Raaten', in which he was the main lead and she played a cameo. They fell in love, but since she was a year older to him and had acted with his elder brother and father, they were skeptical. Four months after they first met, they decided to get married. Shammi and Geeta went to Banganga Temples, near Napean Sea Road of Mumbai, and got married, with Hari Walia as the sole witness. It was only after the marriage that they informed their parents.

The couple lived a life of bliss in the coming years and had a son the following year. Aditya Raj Kapoor was born on 1st July 1956, at Shirodkar’s Hospital, Mumbai. After five years i.e. in 1961, they had another child. This time, it was a daughter, Kanchan. During the filming of Teesri Manzil (1966), tragedy struck the Kapoor family and Geeta died of small pox. Shammi had a failed romance with Mumtaz in 1968 and in 1969; he got married to Neila Devi of Bhavanagar. The couple continues to enjoy marital bliss till date.

Shammi Kapoor is one of the leading internet users in India. He is the founder and chairman of Internet Users Community of India (IUCI). Apart from that, he has also played a major role in setting up internet organizations like the Ethical Hackers Association. Kapoor also maintains a website dedicated to the 'Kapoor family'. In 2006, he told interviewers that he goes to dialysis three times a week. Even that has failed to depress him. Rather, he is thankful to God for giving him so much. The legend continues to rule the hearts of his fans even today.

Watch Hockey World Cup  2010 Pakistan vs Australia Live Streaming Online here.  Australia is sitting pretty comfortably at the second spot in Pool B and  a win in the upcoming match against Pakistan on Monday, March 08, 2010  will help them walk through to the semi finals easily.

Pakistan had come to the FIH 2010 World Cup with so many hopes, but  sadly, they were not able to perform up to the expectations of fans so  far. Looks like the love for game of cricket has almost killed hockey in  their country and the players lacked athleticism and once reckoned as  champion team now doesn't match with the teams of other countries  including England, Australia, Germany and Netherlands.


Australia is riding high on confidence after a victory against South  Africa especially when they sent the Proteas reeling with a 12-nil.  Doerner have had a field day scoring 5 goals and Turner and Dwyer have  been other players who scored more than one goal in the match. Australia  also sent Spain with a 2-0 and the confidence levels are running high  and they start as favorites and hopefully claim a win against the  struggling Pakistan team.

Demi Moore says she¡¯¡¯s finally happy with her body

Post image for Demi Moore says she''s finally happy with her body

After years of obsessing over her body, Demi Moore says she is finally comfortable in her own skin.

"I had an extreme obsession with my body. I made it a measure of my own value," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

"I tried to dominate it, which I did, and I changed it multiple times over. But it never lasted and ultimately it didn”t bring me anything but temporary happiness.

"Does being thin resolve anything? No. The irony is that when I abandoned that desire to dominate my body, it actually became the body that I”d always wanted.

"But it only happened when I stopped trying to control it. At the end of the day, this kind of obsession is pointless and meaningless."

"I have had something done but it’’s not on my face," she told Elle magazine

Jordan ¡®furious¡¯ with Andre for gyrating with dancers in front of kids

Post image for Jordan 'furious' with Andre for gyrating with dancers in front of kids

Katie Price a.k.a. Jordan is furious with ex-husband Peter Andre for gyrating with lycra-clad dancers in front of their kids.

Andre, 37, who had put on an X-rated show with kids Junior and Princess just feet away, is said to have shocked fans as he performed with a string of sexy girls in kinky leather-look leggings.

Junior, four, and Princess, two, were in the front row of the raised seats at London's IndigO2 Arena on March 6 alongside Andre's TV chef pal Gino D'Acampo, 33, and his wife Jessica.

A confused-looking Junior was even seen waving to his dad as the show went on late into the night, with Princess appearing not to understand what was going on as she struggled to see over a screen.

A source close to Andre said that he had taken the kids along after Junior begged to see his show.

"The kids were there and had a brilliant time. They took their pyjamas and changed into them before they left the arena. They both loved it," the Daily Star quoted his spokesman as saying.

But 31-year-old Jordan's pals accused Andre of "double standards" after he had criticised her for similar stunts, and even labelled him a "hypocrite".

"Kate is bound to be angry. Peter is always having a go at her for keeping the kids up late and taking them to inappropriate things," Jordan's friend said.

"But what could be more inappropriate than this? Letting your kids see you dance with a load of half-naked women is hardly in the parents' handbook.

"They may know daddy is working but I'm not sure that kids of two and four know the difference.

"This is bound to be confusing for them and hardly something they should be going to," the friend added.

O¡±Neal stunned at late girlfriend Fawcett¡¯s omission from ¡®Oscars In Memoriam¡¯

Farrah Fawcett1 202x300 ONeal stunned at late <a href='http://www.beltbucklechina.com/wholesale-belt-buckles/knife-belt-buckle/Antique-Style-Trucker-Girl-with-Knife-Belt-Buckle-238.html' target='_blank' class='infotextkey'>girl</a>friend Fawcett's omission from 'Oscars In Memoriam' Farrah Fawcett's log-time boyfriend Ryan O”Neal has expressed shock at the actress's omission from the Oscars' "In Memoriam" segment despite having been a member of the Academy for 40 years.

"It was a terrible decision and very hurtful � Farrah was a member of the Academy for over 40 years and we could not believe she did not get a mention," the Herald Sun quoted O” Neal, as saying.

The traditional video montage of stars who died in the past year including such familiar faces as Patrick Swayze, Brittany Murphy and Michael Jackson, but inexplicably omitted the Charlie's Angels star.

His daughter and Oscar winner Tatum O” Neal is also planning to join her father in insisting the Academy address the omission.

"Quite frankly, we were stunned at the decision not to include her in the tribute and I feel that the Academy should be scolded for that, everyone was shocked. Both Tatum and I were very upset and we intend to write a letter to the Academy to try and get an explanation for this oversight on their behalf," O” Neal said.

However, Fawcett’’s exclusion wasn”t an accident, according to a spokeswoman for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

"I would not say that it was an oversight. No matter how carefully and how conscientiously people address who is included, there are people who just simply can”t be," said Leslie Unger, spokeswoman for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

"In any given year there will always be some people that other people think should have been included and that there’’s more justification for one person versus another. It is impossible to include everybody," she added.

Fans of Fawcett flooded networking sites with their grievances on Sunday.

Fawcett died on June 25, 2009, the same day as Michael Jackson, after a long battle with cancer.  She was 62.

Big Tv Recharge

Big Tv RechargeMUMBAI, Big Tv Recharge: Reliance Big TV has launched its high-definition (HD) set-top box with digital video recording (DVR) technology, making it the first DTH operator in India to offer such a service.

The Reliance ADAG company has priced the HD DVR set-top box at Rs 7,490, lesser than Sun Direct HD available at Rs 10,000.

The service will be rolled out across India's top 100 cities.

Big TV has also launched entry offers for the south and non-south markets. For non-south markets, Big TV has bundled the STB with three months of Diamond Pack subscription for Rs 7,990.

In the southern market, the entry offer is priced at Rs 7,790 bundled with five months of value pack with a full bouquet of sports channels.

For existing Big TV customers, the company is offering an upgrade option from SD to HD DVR at an exceptional price of Rs 5,990.

Big TV CEO Sanjay Behl said, "This is India's first product with a dual benefit of HD viewing and digital video recorder in a single STB. Further, Big TV is the only service provider to offer recording capability upwards of 200 hours and a universal remote control

which can manage up to three devices."

The company expects the top 10 per cent of its existing customers to opt for the HD DVR service. Big TV is also eyeing 10 per cent of the monthly new activations from the top 100 cities.

"The HD services are available at a higher price, so there is likelihood that more affluent and higher income households will be opting for this. We believe, out of 2.5 million subscribers ofBig TV, the top 10 per cent would go for the upgradation," Behl told Indiantelevision.com.

The launch of the HD service is also targeted towards improving Arpus (average revenue par user). Big TV is eyeing a 25-30 per cent higher Arpu from its HD service, Behl said. However, he declined to comment on the current Arpu levels.

"This launch is part of our pursuit of quality and profitable growth by blending best in technology, content experience, reach and service to bring world-class entertainment experience to our customers," Behl said.

As a part of its HD launch, Big TV has signed a HD content deal with National Geographic to offer its HD channels in India. It will offer the HD channels complementary through entry offers to all new customers. It is in talks with CBS, ESPN, FoX News and Discovery. it plans to launch over the next two months five new HD channels and a host of HD content by forging strategic alliances.

Big TV also said Wednesday it plans to launch six new interactive services during the fiscal.

The company will launch its HD DVR marketing campaign across top 100 cities as part of the launch phase. It will comprise an aggressive multimedia campaign across television, print, digital, social, retail media and BTL mediums.

The high definition feature of Big TV HD DVR offers five times clearer and sharper image quality with two million pixel resolution and digital surround sound effect, the company said. The DVR capabilities offer features like pause, play, rewind live TV and record Live TV.

The HD DVR offers up to 200 hours of recording capacity. It also offers a 3-in-1 universal remote to control the TV, STB and any other music/ disc player system.

The company currently has eight Ku-band transponders on Measat. "We are adding two transponders that will allow us bandwidth to offer more HD content and channels for the next one year. We plan to increase our overall channel capacity to over 300," said Behl.

Eddie Cibrian

Eddie CibrianLeAnn Rimes has finally spoken out about the breakdown of her marriage and her subsequent affair with movie co-star Eddie Cibrian, insisting she “doesn’t regret the outcome”. The singer/actress has remained silent since she was caught kissing Cibrian on camera in 2009, while she was still married to dancer Dean Sheremet.

Rimes and Sheremet filed for divorce shortly afterwards, and Cibrian also split from his wife, Brandi Glanville, so the stars could be together. A year on from the scandal, Rimes admits she regrets the way events unfolded but she’s happy to have Cibrian by her side.

She tells People magazine, “I take responsibility for everything I’ve done. I hate that people got hurt. But I don’t regret the outcome.” Rimes confesses their friendship “tipped over” a few months after filming “Northern Lights” and they embarked on a love affair: “It was very emotionally driven. I never once thought what I was doing was OK.”

But the 27 year old is adamant there were problems in her marriage before her romance with Cibrian started. She admits she and Sheremet tried to work out their differences but it became “very apparent it wasn’t a marriage that fulfilled either one of us”.

She adds, “I was out of balance. My marriage was out of balance. There was something missing.” But Rimes despises being called a “home wrecker” – because Cibrian and Glanville’s marriage was already fractured too.

She says, “The hardest thing to hear is someone call either of us a home wrecker because we didn’t walk into a perfectly happy marriage and ruin it.” The star is refusing to rule out another wedding in the future, but insists, “I don’t know what the future holds, but I know it holds Eddie. I’m really happy. I’ve moved on, and I hope there can be some forgiveness and acceptance.”
