Game Of Thrones Star Natalie Dormer’s Topless Photo Session For GQ – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 02 April 2014

Game of Thrones Natalie Dormer topless holding breasts in handsGame Of Thrones Star Natalie Dormer’s Topless Photo Session For GQ – the 32-year English actress is best-known for her role as Margaery Tyrell in HBO’s Game Of Thrones.

The part sees her spend a lot of her time on-screen in very little clothing but the GQ photo session is something of an off-screen change for Natalie. In one of the photos appearing in the latest issue of GQ she is seen topless holding her breasts in her hands and wearing just a pair of black leather Emilio Pucci shorts and some black Zanotti heels. The shot is angled so we can’t see the left side of her head which was shaved for her role as Cressida in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.

The GQ photos look like they are of someone at least 10 years younger than Natalie who clearly keeps herself in great shape. They also show something of her personality and she has more than a little of the non-standard Hollywood actress about her.

She is currently training for the London Marathon and has long been known for her addiction to adrenaline fuelled pastimes. She has jumped out of planes and is a very keen scuba diver after having filmed an underwater scene for an earlier movie in the Czech Republic. Read the rest of this entry »

Philip Seymour Hoffman dies aged 46Philip Seymour Hoffman Dies Aged 46 – the Oscar-winning actor was today found dead in his New York apartment after what appeared to be a heroin overdose.

After his friend was unable to reach him on the telephone he called at the actor’s Greenwich Village apartment and apparently discovered him unconscious on the bathroom floor. Later this afternoon Hoffman’s death was confirmed by the New York Police Department.

He was not only a highly gifted actor but also a respected director and had specialised in difficult character roles throughout his career.

Hoffman won his Best Actor Oscar for playing the title role in the 2005 movie Capote but also received 3 Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominations for his roles in The Master, Doubt and Charlie Wilson’s War. In addition to his movie awards Hoffman was also a superb stage actor and was nominated 3 times for a Tony award for his work in True West, Long Day’s Journey Into Night and most recently for his portrayal of Willy Loman in the 2012 Broadway production of Death Of A Salesman.

Playing Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s Death Of A Salesman is acknowledged as one of the heavyweight roles of modern theatre but the New York Times theatre critic described Hoffman’s performance in the play in glowing terms saying ‘Mr. Hoffman is one of the finest actors of his generation, beyond dispute.’ Read the rest of this entry »

She said: “I don’t really worry about it. It’s definitely something that’s just kind of a part of this world. It is a part of the entertainment industry that sells. Sex sells, and for some disgusting reason young sex sells even more.”

She also talked about the way the industry has a duty in terms of presenting body image to young women. She talked about how she discussed how her Hunger Games character Katniss Everdeen should look whilst keeping in mind the plot dictated to an extent that she was likely to be a little undernourished.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire World Premiere, Red Carpet Photos – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 11 November 2013

Jennifer Lawrence shows naked back at Hunger Games Catching Fire premiere November 2013

Hunger Games: Catching Fire World Premiere, Red Carpet Photos – tonight was the world premiere of Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and the cast were all on view outside the Odeon Leicester Square in London.

The person most people were most keen to see was Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence who plays the main role of Katniss Everdeen as she did in the first movie. Apart from the usual reasons people want to see a beautiful movie star there was another thing on many people’s minds as Jennifer is showing off her new shorter hair style.

Just like Jennifer Aniston a few days ago Jennifer Lawrence has gone for a much shorter style than she has had for some while. Although she looked the epitome of style on the red carpet her unusual gown brought some mixed reactions. Whilst everyone was agreed the top half looked great with its nude back there was some disagreement over the lower half of the gown which featured what many described as a ‘Smartie’ design.

Jennifer was joined on the red carpet by the other stars of the movie including Josh Hutcherson who plays Peeta Mellark, Liam Hemsworth who plays Gale Hawthorne and Elizabeth Banks who plays Effie Trinket.

Elizabeth Banks certainly made sure that everyone remembered her gown as she arrived in a very bright yellow  long yellow dress designed by Jason Wu. The gown featured 2 open panels showing off the actress’s trim waist and she was clearly enjoying the attention on tonight’s red carpet.

The award for the sexiest dress went to one of the artists on the soundtrack however and not a member of the acting cast. These days we are coming to expect something special from Ellie Goulding on the red carpet and she didn’t disappoint tonight.

Ellie wore what appeared to be a fairly standard looking black dress from the front but when she turned round she revealed it was completely backless and there was not much material at the sides, exposing some sideboob. Read the rest of this entry »

Top Wikipedia Articles of 2012 – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 28 December 2012

houx crenele - top French Wikipedia article 2012Top Wikipedia Articles – although Wikipedia itself doesn’t release Top 10 lists anymore it does still allow researchers to access its log files and Swedish software engineer Johan Gunnarsson has done all the hard work for us.

Although data is not available for separate countries we can see what are the most popular wiki articles in the different language versions of the site. In the English language version, which is unsurprisingly the biggest, the most searched article this year turns out to be ‘Facebook’ which had over 32m hits. Gunnarsson believes that the reason this article is so popular is either: 1)  users are typing Facebook into an integrated search engine in their browsers intending to go to the site and end up on Wikipedia (which could be a self-reinforcing habit based on search history), or 2) it reflects high-level interest and curiosity about top websites and their history, policies and background.

The second most popular article was ‘Wiki’ with over 29m people looking at it, presumably to work out the meaning of the Wikipedia site itself. Curiously though there is a ‘Wikipedia’ article on the site and this came in at 27th place in terms of number of hits.

Other Top 10 Wikipedia articles this year included ”Deaths in 2012′ and movies ‘The Avengers’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and ‘The Hunger Games.’ The list also has One Direction and Fifty Shades of Grey making the Top 10.

Cul-de-sac from Brookside tv but Germans may be interested!Other language versions of Wikipedia also had Top 10 details released and it seems that the Japanese are keen on actresses in porn movies, the Germans have an unusual preoccupation with cul-de-sacs (sackgasse to them), the Vietnamese are keen to read about sex positions and the world’s French-speaking nations are strangely curious about houx crenele, a type of holly from Asia.

Top 10 Articles on the English-speaking version of Wikipedia during 2012

  1. Facebook
  2. Wiki
  3. Deaths in 2012
  4. One Direction
  5. The Avengers (2012 film)
  6. Fifty Shades of Grey
  7. 2012 Phenomenon
  8. The Dark Knight Rises
  9. Google
  10. The Hunger Games

Admit it, the articles on holly, Japanese porn and cul-de-sacs sound more exciting don’t they!

Jennifer Lawrence, World’s Most Desirable Woman – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 12 December 2012

Jennifer Lawrence looking hot showing cleavage - World's Most Desirable WomanJennifer Lawrence Voted World’s Most Desirable Woman – the Hunger Games actress has been voted the world’s most desirable woman in a survey by online mag AskMen,com.

The online magazine polled over 2.4m votes and the 22-year old actress topped the list this year. Although she is still probably best known for her role in The Hunger Games there has been a lot of critical support for her role as Tiffany in the rom-com drama Silver Linings Playbook. She is believed to have a good chance of an Oscar nomination for laying the part of the widow who starts an unusual friendship with bipolar sufferer Pat Solitano, played by Bradley Cooper.

Some people may be surprised by Jennifer topping the list of world’s most desirable women as she has a lot less publicity than many others who appear on the list with her.

The survey asked men to rate women based on such factors as looks, personality and talent. The list has been going for some while now and for interest the Top 5 for ten years ago in 2002 were:

  1. Monica Bellucci
  2. Elsa Benitez
  3. Halle Berry
  4. Heidi Klum
  5. Julia Roberts

The winner of last year’s most desirable woman was Modern Family star Sofia Vergara who surprisingly slipped right back to No 12 in this year’s survey.

Here is the Top 10 list of this year’s Most Desirable Women:

  1. Jennifer Lawrence
  2. Mila Kunis
  3. Kate Upton
  4. Rihanna
  5. Emma Stone
  6. Miranda Kerr
  7. Kristen Stewart
  8. Jessica Gomes
  9. Jessica Pare
  10. Michelle Jenneke

The Hunger Games, Holly Willoughby – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 10 February 2012

The Hunger Games – it seems that this new movie is set to pick up a lot of fans of the Twilight franchise.

The people behind The Hunger Games are so confident of its success that there are already going to be at least 2 sequels to the first movie. The new movie has quite a few things in common with the Twilight series as both are based on very big selling books that have been originally successful in the American young adult market. There are also both written by female authors.

The new movie has been adapted by Suzanne Collins from her own novel. The novel is the first in a trilogy with  the action taking place in Panem a post apocalyptic world in the place where the US used to exist. The main character is 16-year old Katniss Everdeen, played in the movie by Jennifer Lawrence, who takes the place of her sister Prim (played by Willow Shields) in The Hunger Games, an annual competition in which the competitors have to kill all their rivals off until they remain. The winner receives enough riches and gifts to never have to worry about anything ever again.

Although the new movie is after the same audience as Twilight it appears that the producers of The Hunger Games are clear to make a distinction between the two series and have vowed not to take any of the Twilight actors into the new Hunger Games series. This has been a blow for Kellan Lutz, who plays vampire Emmett Cullen in Twilight, who wanted to take the part of Gale Hawthorne in the new movie. Instead of Lutz the producers cast Liam Hemsworth, an Australian actor, in the role.

As well as the expected cast of the young and the beautiful the new film has some serious Hollywood names as well, with Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson and Donald Sutherland joining the cast. The Hunger Games  opens on 23 March and we are sure that it will end up being one of this year’s big box-office winners.

Holly Willoughby – it seems like Holly may soon be presenting a revamped version of Cilla Black’s old show, Surprise Surprise.

The show was last seen on our screens in 2001 and had been presented throughout its successful 7 year run by Cilla, also the host of the popular Blind Date. It seems that most of the features of the old show will be kept with the producers adding a few new things to give it a more modern twist. The old Surprise Surprise was probably best known for those tear jerking sections that brought together long-lost relatives.

Holly is currently to be seen on This Morning with co-host Phillip Schofield and was until recently also the co-host of Dancing On Ice. It was on Dancing On Ice that she earned the nickname Holly Willoughbooby due to her eye-catching low tops which showed the viewers plenty of her ample cleavage. She has now been replaced on Dancing With Ice by Christine Bleakley as she wanted to clear room to take par in the BBC’s new talent show The Voice. She may of course also had an eye on hosting Surprise Surprise when she left DOI.

The new series of Surprise Surprise is expected to air this autumn on ITV1.

One other change from the old series is likely to be that of the host singing the theme tune as despite Holly’s many talents we are not aware that she has added singing to her list of accomplishments.
