John Travolta calls Miley Cyrus “The New Olivia Newton-John”

John Travolta calls teen sensation Miley Cyrus the new Olivia Newton-John after working with her in the new movie Bolt.

 

Miley Cyrus promoting her new album "Break Out" at french channel Canal plus. She then went to perform a private live concert at the Showcase Club. Paris, France. 

The two also teamed up to record the theme for the new animated movie, and Travolta admits he hasn’t seen a star sparkle like Cyrus, 15, since he fell for Newton-John during their late 1970s movie musical Grease.

He said:

“The whole country is in love with her (Cyrus), as am I. She’s got the equivalent of what Olivia Newton-John was to Grease.”

You know, I can’t say this with any certainty, but I’d guess that Olivia wouldn’t find this as a compliment.

Cam Gigandet: “I’m Practically Naked Throughout the Whole Movie Twilight“

Cam Gigandet from the new movie Twilight, which opens in theaters November 21st, sat down the MTV News for a quite long interview about the movie, and his newer movie The Unborn, which opens in theaters January 9, 2009!

CLICK HERE to check out some new screen captures from Cam’s new movie The Unborn!

 

Here is Cam’s interview with MTV News:

MTV: Tell us about your favorite scene in “The Unborn.”

Cam Gigandet: Well, I’m thinking of the one at the end of the movie, which is probably my favorite scene. But I can’t really say anything about that. … What happens in the movie is, a spirit is taking over people’s bodies to get to Odette’s character. So at the beginning, since it’s kind of weak, it starts off with younger people — [my favorite scene] happens when it goes into a child, a toddler, and he is performing acts that are, well, certainly illegal in most states.

MTV: That must have been weird to shoot with kids who were “evil” but normal between takes.

Gigandet: Well, [my character] comes up the stairs and saves the day, and I didn’t meet the child before — when I first walked up there while we were shooting it, I almost sh– my pants! It was so freaky and so unnatural for me to see a child doing things and looking the way he was.

MTV: Did you ever feel like the set itself was haunted?

Gigandet: Yes, actually. We were filming on location at the insane asylum and were in this big hall that looks like the inside of a church, and we needed lighting to look like moonlight. What they did was bring in this huge light — it’s taller than me — and it’s a ball that has the light on the inside. It’s lifted up into the sky. It was just a massive ball, and while we were sitting there filming an intense scene, all of a sudden the thing just exploded! The whole light on the inside just shattered, and the glass started falling everywhere. [The actors] thought it was fake, that it was a joke — but it wasn’t. That was so eerie!

MTV: “The Unborn” also stars one of my all-time favorite actors, Gary Oldman. What’s he like behind the scenes?

Gigandet: He’s actually really funny. … Once we had to start a scene in the end spot, and then we had to reverse our walk and basically walk backwards … so he did this whole scene basically rewinding himself [laughs], like all his dialogue and motions. It was like someone pressed the rewind button.

MTV: This movie is about a family curse, so we wanted to ask you: Does the Gigandet family have any curses of its own?

Gigandet: Curses? [Laughs.] Well, my dad ended up fat. And so did my grandpa. No, I shouldn’t say that. My dad is not fat.

MTV: So the curse of weight gain will be coming at you someday?

Gigandet: Yeah, but I’m not sure if it’s a curse or just bad genetics. Either way, I’m going to be screwed in about 15 years.

 

MTV: Which leads to our next question: You have a knack for getting shirtless in nearly every movie you do — is that your doing?

Gigandet: No! [Laughs.] It’s definitely the other way around. In the movies “Never Back Down” and “Twilight” it happened — in “Twilight,” I’m practically naked throughout the entire movie — and for “Never Back Down” they asked me, and I prepared accordingly. But “Twilight” was just a decision that Catherine made, and I just said, “Oh, sh–, I should start working out.” [Laughs.] I never like to [take my shirt off], because I’m just as insecure as everyone else in the world. But you’ve just gotta take the good with the bad, I guess.

MTV: Here’s your chance to sell a few hundred more movie tickets: Do you take your shirt off in “The Unborn”?

Gigandet: I think I kept it on. I’m trying to think. … There might be a five-second scene where it’s off, but other than that, I don’t think so. At least, I hope not. [Laughs.]

MTV: We have some Halloween questions for you: What are your five favorite scary movies of all time?

Gigandet: Well, the original “Amityville Horror,” definitely. “The Exorcist,” “The Omen.” … You know, there are two different types of scary movies: The ones that make you jump, and the ones that make you have that other kind of fear. Some of the older Freddy Krueger movies, watching the acting and this and that, I get sidetracked [and can’t get scared]. I like “Rear Window,” and I liked “Secret Window” too with Johnny Depp, but I’m not sure if that was a scary movie — I think I just liked his hat. [Laughs.]

MTV: You love the movie because of Johnny Depp’s hat?

Gigandet: Yeah, I have actually been going to stores lately looking for that exact hat. But the ones I find don’t look right. I always look like a fisherman in most of them. It’s not working.

MTV: Well, this leads into our next question: What’s the best Halloween costume you’ve ever had?

Gigandet: I was just talking about this, because I’m trying to think of a new one. Every year, I like to go as famous people who aren’t costume people, but actual people. My favorite one was probably Kurt Cobain — I went all out with him. I also did Vince Neil once. For some reason, I always end up doing musicians, which is odd.

MTV: What advice do you have for people in selecting the Halloween candy they’ll be handing out?

Gigandet: Well, I like chocolate stuff; I don’t like any of that other gross sugary candy. We always protected the houses that gave full candy bars — we would even write down their addresses. So if you can muster up some full candy bars, even if you want to just give them to the people who have good costumes, I’d do that.

MTV: Your fans know how much you love Skor bars. So is it your dream to trick-or-treat at a house where they hand out full-sized Skors?

Gigandet: No! [Laughs.] I had to stop eating them, because I would have, like, six a day! I haven’t had a Skor bar in so long! Aw, those were good times

Beyonce the New Wonder Woman

 

Beyonce is after super hero status along with having multiple personalities. Currently she is eyeing the role of Wonder Woman. After seeing the super hero phenomenon, she wants a piece of the action.

 

“I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman? It would be great. And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It’s time for that, right? After doing these roles that were so emotional I was thinking to myself, ‘OK, I need to be a superhero.’ Although, when you think about the psychology of the heroes in the films these days, they are still a lot of work, of course, and emotional. But there’s also an action element that I would enjoy.”

Right now Beyonce is busy with her role as Etta James in “Cadillac Records.” Girl had to gain 20 pounds for the role and I couldn’t be more envious. Instead of getting evil looks for moaning as I eat my Dunkin’ Donuts coffee cake muffin, people would be bringing me more.

No word on whether or not might actually get picked up. She is “in talks” with DC Comics and Warner Bros. to try and secure her spot in any silver screen adaptations.

Miley Cyrus to Star in Untitled Romance Movie!

Disney’s Hannah Montana actress, Miley Cyrus, is to star in a new untitled movie that is being made “specially” for her by author Nicholas Sparks (A Walk to Remember).

The author is currently writing the novel, and will be writing a screenplay adaption for the movie which will be produced by Disney-owned Offspring Entertainment.

We wonder if Miley will be done with Hannah, since the show is losing viewers. Does anyone still even like Hannah Montana as much as they used to before Miley became super-famous???

Miley’s mom, Tish, will executive produce the film.

Jennifer Gibgot who’ll produce the film said, “the project came about after Disney exec Jason Reed met with the Miley, who is slowly broadening her image and transitioning to adult fare. She mentioned A Walk to Remember as an example of what she hoped for.”

We remember A Walk to Remember, which starred former pop singer Mandy Moore.

The author also written the novels to hit blockbusters The Notebook, and Message In a Bottle.

We hope this new film is good!

Zac Efron Cover Teen Vogue Magazine!

The High School Musical 3: Senior Year actor, Zac Efron, covers the latest issue of Teen Vogue magazine.

He also chatted about his new movie 17 Again, which is supposed to be in theaters next year. “It was hard to play someone that I couldn’t relate to in the slightest. But the director taught me a lot about the art of acting, which I hadn’t been schooled in before. I’ve got a better understanding of what it means to be an actor now,” Zac told Teen Vogue.

And he also talked about his other feature film Me and Orson Welles: “I would never have, until now, called myself a movie buff. But I’ve found so many films that I never knew existed.”

Make sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue of Teen Vogue, to get new photos of Zac from the magazine shoot, and more of the interview! )

Zac Efron Photos from Me and Orsen Wells!

Zac Efron has left his squeaky-clean school boy image behind for a new movie role.

The High School Musical star is barely recognisable in newly-released shots from Me and Orson Welles, where he is seen sporting a more sophisticated attire for the period drama.

Zac said recently of his post-HSM plans, “I’m looking for something new and exciting to do. I want to do something dark or a comedy.”

“There’s tons of icons that I would love to work with on something new and exciting.”

In the upcoming movie Zac plays a 17-year old who is cast in a young Orson Welles‘ theatrical production of Julius Caesar in 1937.

We can’t wait to see this movie…and we don’t really know what it’s about…lol! D
