Kunis is expecting her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher.
Bad Moms star Mila Kunis is awaiting the arrival of her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher, but that hasn't stopped the actress from thinking about baby number three. Speaking on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, Kunis revealed that after they welcomed daughter Wyatt the couple knew they had to have more children, so she’s waiting to see how they feel this time around.
Mila Kunis is currently expecting her second child with husband Ashton Kutcher.

The new comedy Bad Moms stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn as three stressed-out mothers who abandon their responsibilities and go on a self-indulgent binge, running afoul of a perfect-mom played by Christina Applegate.
Kunis has a 2-year-old daughter with actor Ashton Kutcher, and they're expecting a second child soon. So she feels like she can identify with her character's need to escape a particularly horrible day. "I think we all have those kinds of days," she says. "Actually it happens almost every day. Talking to my friends it will be like, 'Oh wait, me too! Let me tell you about what happened today!"'
As for being a bad mom, Kunis admits that she has had her moments. She remembers one day when she decided to take her daughter Wyatt to visit Kutcher at work. "To go anywhere, you have to pack all this stuff up in anticipation of everything going horribly wrong with the first baby," she laughs. "I was like, 'I did it!' I put her in the car. Like, I high-five myself. Then I'm driving down the 101 thinking, 'Oh my God, I'm doing really good today.' She was being really quiet, and I was like, 'Oh, let me look in the rearview mirror to make sure everything's OK.' And I look, and she's happy as can be, but just not nearly strapped in. She's just fine in her car seat, but nothing, no strap whatsoever. And I think I just turned white."

While playing 'Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts', Corden asked Kunis: 'carrot stick or beer can?'
Bad Moms actresses Mila Kunis and Christina Applegate were forced to make some difficult choices when they both appeared on James Corden’s ‘The Late Late Show’, as the host invited them to play a game of his invention, ‘Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts’.
Essentially, it was a game of truth or dare, in which the participants had to answer questions about themselves or the other person, or consume an unusual food or drink item. By unusual, we mean things like: ghost pepper hot sauce, cow tongue, sardines, grasshoppers, calf's brain, pickle juice and clam juice...

Fake rings and false social media locations were just some of the tricks Kutcher and Kunis resorted to in order to keep their wedding day a secret.
Perfect example – back in March last year, Kunis appeared on James Corden’s ‘The Late Late Show’ and told the presenter, coyly, that she and her former ‘That ‘70s Show’ co-star Kutcher had gotten hitched. However, it was then reported that the couple had tied the knot on the July 4th weekend, with Kunis sporting a fake ring on TV to throw off the scent.
Kutcher appeared on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Wednesday (March 2nd) to provide some more details about the various ploys they used in order to try to ensure privacy on their big day – including fake social media locations.

Seth MacFarlane's Ted prove disagreeable in art and now in reality as his creator is sued over Ted source by production company
Ted, the main character of the film ted, was the loveable talking bear that looked like butter wouldn't melt.What he was, in actual fact, was the cause of endless friction between his owner John, Mark Wahlberg, and John's girlfriend Lori, Mila Kunis, as a result of his foul-mouthed, boozy and irresponsible ways.
It has been claimed that the character of Ted was not an original idea from MacFarlane
Two years after the film's release and, once again, Ted is in the middle of another row, this time between Universal Pictures, the film's creator and director, Seth Macfarlane and a production company that claims they invented the cuddly character first.

The actress was unseasonably open in a new interview during which she discussed her career and the future.
Mila Kunis isn't one to go blabbing about her personal life to anyone who asks. Therefore, when she does decide to let a little light in on her impending marriage to fellow actor Ashton Kutcher and increasingly obvious pregnancy, people sit up and listen. The 30 year-old mother-to-be opened up during an interview with W Magazine to promote her new movie, Jupiter Ascending.
Reflecting upon her pregnancy, which she first confirmed during a TV interview on Ellen, Kunis demonstrated a deep-seated ire towards the paparazzi and the tabloids for sensationalising her relationship with Ashton and presuming information about her unborn child.
"Every day and every night, the paparazzi are parked outside my house," she said. "Today, I had to drive through the Warner Bros. back lot on my way here, just to throw them off. They want a shot of my stomach because they need proof of my pregnancy. I don't know why they even bother-they've been saying I'm pregnant for years. Now they're right, so they won't leave me alone."
Mila Kunis has a message for future fathers.
Mila Kunis is pregnant. Mila Kunis is opinionated. So when she came on Jimmy Kimmel last night, she had a few choice words in store for Kimmel and expectant fathers everywhere. When Kimmel was interviewing the Friends With Benefits star, he made a pretend slipup. "My wife and I are pregnant," Kimmel said. "We are having a baby very soon as well."
Mila Kunis has a message for dads-to-be.
Kunis narrowed her eyes and replied, "Oh, you both are having a baby? You and your wife are pregnant?"
Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise and Seth MacFarlane face off at this weekend's box office, while Cruise goes the extra mile with a three-city premiere for Edge of Tomorrow. Trailers offer glimpses of Obvious Child, The Congress, Third Person and Big Hero 6...
Three big films hit cinemas this weekend in the UK (one of them opens next week in America), with a fantasy blockbuster taking on a sci-fi action thriller and a Wild West comedy for box office glory. Angelina Jolie's Maleficent is likely to emerge triumphant, thanks to high expectations. But Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow is getting much more positive reviews. And Seth Macfarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West is bound to be popular escapist entertainment. Take time out to read our Maleficent review, Edge of Tomorrow review and see what we said about Seth MacFarlane in A Million Ways to Die.
To mark the launch of Edge of Tomorrow, Tom Cruise and his costar Emily Blunt held an unprecedented triple premiere on two continents in one day. They started Wednesday morning at 9am with the massive world premiere in central London, where the film is set, then dashed across to Paris for a second premiere a few hours later at the location of the film's climactic battle. Then after a trans-Atlantic flight they turned up for an 11pm North American premiere in New York. Browse our photos from the world premiere of 'Edge Of Tomorrow' held at the BFI IMAX, London United Kingdom on Wednesday 28th May 2014 or check out Tom in a different suit at the New York premiere held at AMC Loews Lincoln Square.
After A Million Ways got the cold shoulder, where are we with Ted 2?
Seth Macfarlane really wants to be a movie star. And we get it, we really do, but that isn’t enough to justify the existence of A Million Ways to Die in the West. Critics are pegging Macfarlane’s latest as “astonishingly lazy” (TIME Magazine) and “altogether wrongheaded” (Film School Rejects) and its overall 34% score on Rotten Tomatoes means that this one is easily skippable.
Seth Macfarlane's latest wasn't worth the hype.
The only hope Macfarlane has of redeeming himself as a writer and, to an extent, as a director, is for his other project, Ted 2, to be a stellar success. So where are we with that one?

Who deserves to win one of the slightly more humorous movie awards?
The MTV Movie Award nominations have been announced and you know what? It’s so refreshing to see some different movies thrown into the mix! The MTV Movie Awards don’t take themselves quite as seriously as the Academy Awards or the BAFTAS, taking pop culture into account just as much as a good performance. The main movies that we’ve come to be acquainted with over awards season are still up for nomination, but which of these nominees do you think deserve a chance to take home one of the sillier (for lack of a better word) awards?
Chris Hemsworth WILL Win Best Shirtless Performance
Mila Kunis is to appear in fiancé Ashton Kutcher's show Two and a Half Men, what other celebrity couples have appeared onscreen together?
Newly engaged Mila Kunis is set to star alongside fiancé Ashton Kutcher in his hit show Two and a Half Men. It’s not the first time that these two have appeared on screen together, having first met playing Jackie and Kelso on That 70’s Show. Jackie and Kelso started out as a couple before breaking up and Jackie then going to date Hyde and Fez, two of the other boys in their group. We wonder if Mila will be a long term addition to the Two and a Half Men cast or whether she’s too busy with her budding movie career to settle for too long on the show?
Mila's engagement ring was visible when the couple attended a basketball match
Ashton and Mila aren’t the only real life couple to appear on screen together as a couple. When Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were still married Brad appeared in FRIENDS, which Jen was then starring in as Rachel Green. However, instead of starring as a couple in the sitcom, Brad appeared as Will Colbert, an old friend of Ross’s with whom he had once established the “I hate Rachel” club. Pitt spent his scenes scowling across the Thanksgiving table at Aniston, although we didn’t mind at the time because we assumed that all was well in their real life paradise.
Mila Kunis is set to play Vivian, a women who Walden finds himself falling for despite preparing to propose to someone else, when she guest stars opposite her beau, Ashton Kutcher on 'Two and a Half Men.'
Mila Kunis will be returning to the small screen, but only for a one-off appearance.
The 30 year-old actress is reportedly scheduled to guest star on CBS's 'Two and a Half Men', opposite her beau, Ashton Kutcher.
The network made the announcement, of the former 'That 70's Show' co-stars reuniting on the sitcom, this past Tuesday (March 4th).
Mary-Kate Olsen is engaged to French banker, Olivier Sarkozy. Are these two the strangest celebrity couple?
News that Mary-Kate Olsen is engaged to marry Olivier Sarkozy isn’t exactly what you’d call run of the mill. When we first heard that this pair were a ‘thing’ two years ago a collective “eh?” was issued around the world, but we’ve all eaten our words since because here they are, still happily together and headed for the chapel.
Mary-Kate is engaged to French banker, Olivier Sarkozy
At 44, Sarkozy is 17 years older than Olsen, and father to two children, aged 12 and 10. Had Mary-Kate not literally grown up on the screen, this pairing may not have been quite so unusual. We all have a habit of still thinking of the Olsen twins as the cute toddlers in Full House, so to hear that one of them is engaged to be married, and particularly to a man in his forties, is a little hard to digest, although it really shouldn’t be. In the grand scheme of couplings, 17 years is not really that big of an age gap.
With Mila and Ashton rumoured to finally be tining the knot here's how their relationship developed from tv to real life.
We’re thrilled at the reports that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis might be engaged, after all they are Hollywood’s cutest couple. The pair, who have known each other for 16 years, might have taken their time in getting together but they’re proof that good things really do come to those who wait.
Mila and Ashton first met on the set of ‘That 70s Show’ back when they were just two young actors starting out, well Mila was 14 and Ashton was 20 when they auditioned. Mila played Jackie and Ashton played Kelso, a pairing who would become an odd screen couple. While off screen they were just friends, Mila actually had her first kiss with Ashton, as part of the script of course, something Ashton didn't know about at the time. While both have admitted to fancying each during the show’s 8 year run their on screen chemistry didn't turn into an off screen romance. Instead the two actors would find themselves in other high profile relationships.

He won't be the one wielding the whips and chains.
Actor Garrett Hedlund has rejected the lead role in the adaptation of EL James' raunchy erotic novel, Fifty Shades of Grey due to being unable to commit to a trilogy.

From the people who brought you The Roast of William Shatner.
It might seem like James Franco has been in almost every movie this year and with so much success, what better way to knock the actor/director/producer/writer/poet/we’re-probably missing-something-here down a peg than with a good old fashion roast? Franco made the announcement via Instagram video last night. “Hey y’all. I’m gonna get roasted on Comedy Central,” the Spring Breakers actor deadpans in the video. ”Be sure to check it out. They wanted me to tell you that. Alright.”
James Franco has been on a winning streak this year.
The roast, which already has its own twitter hashtag (#francoroast, how creative) will be filmed in August and is set to air on Labor Day, according to the Comedy Central website. It will be produced by Miles Levy and Joel Gallen, who also worked on the roasts of Rosanne Barr, Charlie Sheen, and Donald Trump, as well as the Emmy®-nominated Comedy Central Roast Of William Shatner. It’s safe to say that these people know how to make fun of celebrities.

The erotic novel has taken another step towards the silver screen and looks on course to actually see the light of day
50 Shades Of Grey just became the biggest movie event of summer 2014 that isn't about super heroes, with Universal announcing their plans to have the film out by August 1 2014. The film will be quite the change from Guardians of the Galaxy, the Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X Men: Days of Future Past, but with a director, script and now a release date all lined up, the much-discussed movie adaption looks like it might finally happen after all. Still no work on who will be in it though, but that's just details.
So we know when the movie should be out, and providing director Sam Taylor-Johnson can keep things on track as soon as we get our Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, then things are looking good. Taylor-Johnson was chosen to take on directing duties earlier this month and her announcement behind the camera has obviously given the producers confidence enough to push forward and commit to a date for when we'll see it on screen. Relatively inexperienced as a director, Taylor-Johnson could prove a competent pick nonetheless having achieved praise for her only work so far; the John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy.

Channing Tatum has promised there will be a 'Magic Mike 2'. The actor has even suggested he may direct the movie.
Tatum is unsure if director Steven Soderburgh, who directed the first Magic Mike film, will be returning for the sequel. He said Soderburgh "really wants to be done directing movies". This has raised the possibility that Tatum could step into the director's shoes as well as starring. He said he would "shoot the sequel" despite being nervous about doing so.

We can't wait for more movement on this
At last, the 50 shades film has some progress to speak of: Sam Taylor-Johnson has been confirmed to helm the cinematic adaptation of the literary powerhouse. Now, after months of rumours, we need some actors to commit to the roles. "I am excited to be charged with the evolution of Fifty Shades of Grey from page to screen," Taylor-Johnson said.
"For the legions of fans, I want to say that I will honour the power of Erika's book and the characters of Christian and Anastasia. They are under my skin too." Producer Michael De Luca praised the director's "unique ability to gracefully showcase complex relationships dealing with love, emotion and sexual chemistry". He added: "EL James's characters and vivid storytelling require a director who is willing to take risks and push the envelope where needed and Sam is a natural fit." We’re satisfied with that choice: Taylor-Johnson directed the great Nowhere Boy, which chronicled the life of John Lennon. But now that she’s confirmed to direct the film, we can’t wait to find out who’s going to play the main characters in the film.
Christian and Anastasia have had many rumoured actors mooted to fill their boots; both Mila Kunis and Emma Watson were thought to be in contention for the role, but both have since dismissed that speculation. Ryan Gosling was rumoured to play Christian, but he too has said no.

A professional disagreement between actors Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair has resulted in Blair leaving 'Anger Management'; it seems highly likely that it was at the behest of Sheen.
Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management a spokesman from the comedy series has announced. Rumours have been circulating about a feud between Blair and the star of Anger Management, Charlie Sheen. The feud was revealed by TMZ on Monday when sources associated with the comedy series said Sheen would not return to the set if Blair was there.
Reports suggest the argument began when Blair criticised Sheen's work ethic in a meeting with Anger Management executives. Unfortunately for Blair, the notoriously irritable actor was informed of her complaint and made it quite clear that, using his powers as one of the show's producers, he would try to have Blair fired.
It was announced yesterday by an Anger Management spokesman that Blair would not be returning to the comedy. Rumours are currently circulating that Sheen has extended an offer to Mila Kunis (girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher, star of Two and a Half Men, a show from which Sheen was fired).

Eddie Redmayne is set to play Stephen Hawking in Theory of Everything directed by James Marsh
Les Misérables star, Eddie Redmayne is set to play Stephen Hawking in a new biopic Theory of Everything directed by James Marsh, according Deadline.com Redmayne is currently filming Jupiter Ascending starring alongside Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. It is currently unknown who will play Hawking's first wife. Filming for Theory of Everything is scheduled to begin this autumn.
Stephen Hawking is the world's most famous and revered scientist. The brilliance and accessibility of his works - A Brief History of Time, Horizon and a collection of science books for children - have ensured Hawking has a place not only in academia but in popular culture.
However, Hawking is as well known for his disability as he is for his work. The world famous physicist was diagnosed, aged 21, with motor neuron disease. The illness, progressively worsening since Hawking's diagnosis in 1962, has confined Hawking to a wheelchair. He is unable to speak without a voice simulator. Despite all the difficulties Hawking faces he continues to teach at the University of Cambridge.

Power couple Ashton and Mila sampled London's finest watering holes.
British royalty Princess Beatrice and boyfriend Dave Clark entertained Hollywood couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher over the weekend, taking them on a tour of London's swankiest bars and restaurants. Things started at the Duck & Waffle on the 40th floor of Heron Tower in East London, but soon headed to Callooh Callay in Shoreditch.
Next came the John Salt bar in Islington, North London, where the drinks kept on coming. "They asked for our best speciality dish, said John Salt boss Leigh Gillson, "We gave them deep fried banana in caramel." A source added: "It wasn't a boozy bender, more an upmarket crawl." Mila, 29 and Ashton, 35, are currently living in London while the actress shoots her new movie Jupiter Ascending.
According to the UK's Daily Mail, the foursome even managed to hit celebrity restaurant Scott's in Mayfair and the Spanish restaurant Cambio De Tercio in Kensington, where Mila and Ashton were given matching Real Madrid shirts - which they later wore.
Was Joss Whedon referring to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, or someone else?
Joss Whedon has hinted that the brother-sister comic book duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch could feature in The Avengers 2. "I've got these two characters, two of my favourite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act," he told Yahoo at the Iron Man 3 premiere, "They're in the movie."
Though he didn't directly reference Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - and other siblings in the Marvel Universe include Aurora and Nothstar - the brother and sister are considered the most likely characters. Andrea and Andreas von Strucker, the villains collectively known as Fenris, are also twin brother and sister. There had been some speculation as to whether Marvel owned the rights to Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (given that they're essentially X-Men chatacters) though during an interview with Hey U Guys, studio boss Kevin Feige said, "It's a little complicated. If they want to use them in an X-Men movie they could, if we want to use them in an Avengers movie we could. So that's that then.
Despite originating in the X-Men stories, the characters have actually played a central role in many of the biggest Avengers storylines. The question now is of course, who will play the brother sister team? Ryan Gosling? Mila Kunis? Is there anyone left who hasn't yet played a comic-book hero in either X-Men or The Avengers?

The couple took the opportunity to tour around the Norfolk Broads.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are taking a break far far away from the hot, crowded beaches of Florida. College kids might get all excited about beer benders and late nights, but K&K are having an altogether more mature spring break experience. The pair jetted off to the tranquil waterways of Norfolk in England. They’re taking a break from Kunis’s busy filming schedule. They’re visiting the village of Wroxham, taking boating trips and touring the countryside. That sounds like a pleasant little break from the hectic L.A. lifestyle that the couple have been used to.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Ashton thinks it will be a great experience. They’ve got no qualms about staying on a boat. They won’t exactly be roughing it.”
No, they certainly won't. But it’s not all fun and games. In fact, the trip was only possible, because it’s somewhat work-related. According to The Telegraph, Kunis was shooting her latest film Jupiter Ascending in the vicinity. Apparently, once they had a free minute, the pair decided to take advantage of the already paid travel costs. Ah, to be young and in love! Even the weather in Norfolk seems to be on their side and is forecasts predict sun all throughout next week.

Ashton Kutcher is yet to post a single tweet about new girlfriend Mila Kunis, and certainly no pictures.
Remember when Ashton Kutcher tweeted a picture of his ex-wife Demi Moore bending over in the house? Life was great for Kutcher, journalists called him not just an actor, but a social media guru. He had fame, fortune, business savvy and, well, Demi Moore, who seemed to 'get' the whole 'connecting with fans' over Twitter thing.
But Ashton and Demi are no more, and the actor's new squeeze Mila Kunis is a little less forthcoming with social media. A friend of the jOBS star tells the Chicago Sun-Times that he's now paying the price for his internet presence. "Both he and Demi just put too much out there and then had to pay the price for tweeting all those personal photos and things like that," said the source.
The crux of the argument is essentially, how can a man who was more than happy to let everyone take a look inside his life now preach intense privacy? "Mila is so private, and she made Ashton realize that when it comes to the public or the press you simply do not have to respond to personal questions - of any kind," said the insider, adding, "He [Ashton] was in the forefront of realizing the power of social media and things like Twitter, but he unfortunately didn't just use them to build his professional brand, he allowed his personal life to be showcased there as well."

A hilarious new video by Los Angeles native Jake Davidson aims to get Kate Upton to the high school prom
Jake Davidson is the latest high school student to try his luck with a celebrity for his high school prom. An admirer of Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton, Jake stars in his own YouTube video, inviting the blonde bombshell to his end of term bash in Los Angeles. The clip, which lasts around two minutes, sees Jake laying on a poolside sun-lounger reading a copy of Sports Illustrated - with Kate on the cover.
"Hey Kate, Jake Davidson here in sunny Los Angeles, inviting you to my senior prom on May 23rd, 2013," he begins. Jake comes up with a list of reasons why Upton - one of the world's most famous models - should be his date for the prom. "You're the ying to my yang, I'm Jewish, 5'9 on a really good day - and I can't dance at all.You're Christian, 5'10, and that Cat Daddy video should have won an Oscar for best short film - you could say this is destiny." Later, Jake is seen shaving with a woman's razor, doing push ups, and showering. "I'm going to be real with you here, I don't have a girlfriend and with prom season rolling around this would be problematic for some, but I'm me, I'm Optimus Prime, I see the glass half full.Kate, great moments are born from great opportunity, and that's what you have here today a chance to make a nice guy's senior year, the best ever," he added, optimistically.
James Franco jumped at the chance to work with Sam Raimi again.
Oz: Great and Powerful overcame mixed reviews to take the top spot at the U.S. box office over the weekend, earning $80.3 million and an additional $69.9 million worldwide, according to studio estimates. Cynical industry insiders had claimed Sam Raimi's new movie had flop written all over it, though despite a $200 million budget, the prequel to The Wizard of Oz looks in a fine position to make big bucks.
We caught up with its lead star, the chameleon like actor James Franco, to talk why he signed on for the project. "First of all, I heard Sam [Raimi] was directing this movie. I did the three Spider-man films with him, and I've known him over 10 years. Not only is he one of my favourite directors to work with, but I'm a fan of his films. So I jumped at the opportunity to do this", he explained. Franco, who has dedicated much of time to the weird and wonderful scripts of Hollywood in recent years, revealed he'd been a massive fan of Oz since he was a child, "I read all the L Frank Baum books when I was a kid, so I was excited because I'd be able to step into that world of my childhood imagination. And when I read the script I saw that they were going to be loyal and respectful of everything we lovers of Oz expect, and that there would be familiar things that you need for it to be the land of Oz," he added.
The new movie sees Franco star as the wizard, with Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz playing the trio of witches he encounters after crashing in the magical world of Oz. Though it could retain it's No.1 position this weekend, it faces competition from Jim Carrey and Steve Carell's new comedy 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' and another of Franco's movies, Spring Breakers.

E.L. James is writing a book, and it's a writing guide
E.L James’ new book is going to be, wait for it… a guide to writing? The undisputed queen of ‘mummy porn’ – as she’s become known is ready to hand over her gift of ‘writing’ to her fans. We’re pretty sure they just fancy another borderline porn novel, but this is what they’re getting.
“As E.L. James traveled and met with her readers, there was a great curiosity about how she got started writing,' said Vintage publisher Anne Messitte. “Her personal story as a writer is inspirational to many women, and journaling has been an important part of her creative process from the start.” There’s one problem with this: Fifty Shades of Grey was considered, in literally circles at least, to be awfully written; sacrilege compared to the classics. Still, if modern times dictate that making millions of bucks is good writing, then maybe that is good writing? Fifty Shades of Grey: Inner Goddess (A Journal) will combine "professional advice from the million-selling author and lined pages for readers to set down their own ideas, or 'inner goddess.'" The book will released on May 1st, and has been described as "a bonded leather" journal offering "readers and aspiring writers a place where they can record their innermost thoughts."
No 50 Shades, not for Kunis

Casting rumours bubble with Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Halle Berry all mentioned. Sam Raimi's Oz gets It's global release while Iron Man 3, Good Vibrations, What Maisie Knew and Stories We Tell trailers hit the web.
The movie casting rumour mill has gone into overdrive this week when Carrie Fisher seemed to confirm that she will indeed be back for Star Wars Episode VII. And then George Lucas chimed in to say that all three stars - Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill - are on board to reprise their iconic characters 30 years after 1983's Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Nothing is official yet, but we can probably expect a big announcement soon.
Meanwhile, Ford has joined the cast of the comedy sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues, which is currently filming with Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate. And Halle Berry has officially rejoined the X-men for Days of Future Past, along with her original trilogy costars Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman and Anna Paquin, plus the cast of First Class.
Mila Kunis, the star of Oz: Great and Powerful, says she will not star in Fifty Shades of Grey.
Mila Kunis became everyone's favorite Hollywood actress this week, after helping a clearly terrified rookie journalist through an interview for BBC Radio 1. The down-to-earth star was pretty much everyone's favorite Hollywood actress anyway, but, well, this just sealed it didn't it.
Kunis is coming to the end of a long promotional campaign for Sam Raimi's big-budget 3-D movie 'Oz: Great and Powerful' which hits cinemas worldwide today (March 8, 2013). The movie, a prequel to the classic 'Wizard of Oz', follows the story of a small-time magician, played by James Franco, who arrives in an enchanted land and is forced to decide if he will be a good man, or a great one. Kunis plays the wicked witch Theodora in one of her most high profile roles to date, though the former That 70's Show actress has been linked with the hottest part in Hollywood for the past 12 months.
Kunis is the bookmaker's second-favorite for the part of Anastasia Steele in the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie. Though all signs point towards Gilmore Girls actress Alexis Bledel, Mila appears to be the people's choice, though she insists audiences will not see her in the raunchy drama, an adaptation of E.L. James' bestselling novel. "You will not see me in 50 Shades of Grey. I'm so sorry!" she told Contactmusic.com, adding, "I will not be in 50 Shades of Grey. I promise." Well, that's that then.
Like Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, this film shows the overpowering strength of Disney and producer Joe Roth, as they once again bury a gifted filmmaker and cast in an effects extravaganza that's strong on visuals but short on story. There are glimpses of Raimi's genius here and there, most notably in his eye-catching use of 3D. And the actors manage to inject a bit of spark into their family-friendly characters. But the plot and the relentlessly simplistic tone will only please children or undemanding adults.
At least it looks amazing. And like the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, the film opens in black and white with a Kansas-set prologue, where the womanising conman Oscar (Franco) performs as the flashy magician Oz. Chased into a hot-air balloon by an angry husband, he is engulfed by a tornado and drops into the colourful land of Oz, where people are looking for a messianic wizard named Oz to save them from the witch who murdered their king. But which witch is the wicked one? Oscar first meets the naive Theodora (Kunis), who hasn't yet decided if she'll be evil or not, then her big sister Evanora (Weisz), the steely interim ruler, and then the too-good Glinda (Williams). And even though he's not a real wizard, he might have some tricks up his sleeve that can help.
The film mixes ideas from L Frank Baum's stories with references to the iconic 1939 film, plus much more epic landscapes of Oz recreated with eye-popping digital trickery. On the other hand, the plot is formulaic and predictable, with characters who are only superficially complex and are far too obvious in the way they interact, badly underestimating the sophistication of even very young children in the audience. But the real problem is that the film is focussed on visual spectacle rather than endearing characters. The sidekicks this time are a slightly creepy-looking flying monkey (Braff) and a feisty china doll (King), both rendered with elaborate motion-capture effects that never quite seem to be there on the set with the actors.

After her break-out role in That '70s Show, Ukraine-born actress Mila Kunis has built a remarkably varied career, voicing Meg in Family Guy and starring in Seth MacFarlane's Ted, while also trying her hand at action (The Book of Eli) and serious drama (Black Swan). Now she's bravely taking on the iconic character of the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz in the prequel Oz the Great and Powerful...
You usually play glamorous, sexy characters. How did it feel to be the ugly duckling for a change?
It was incredibly freeing. And it was the first time in my life where putting on a costume really did change the way I played the character. So much of that had to do with the contact lenses: they were hand-painted and the pupils didn't dilate, so my vision was very narrow. "I can't see you and you can't see me, so I can do whatever I want!" So it kind of allowed me to explore and have fun without worrying what people thought. It was great! Also, the second you're in a corset you end up walking differently. And all three witches [alongside Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz] wore heels, so we had to run in heels and do stunts in heels, which also changes the way you hold yourself. And that in its own right helps you figure your character out.
Were you influenced by Margaret Hamilton's memorable performance in the 1939 movie?
The truth is that no, I didn't want to imitate or do anything that would take away from the iconic character that was created so wonderfully and beautifully and will remain so iconic. What I was given was the gift of a back-story - the origin of the character - and humanising her in a way. I mean it's very simple: it's just a girl who gets her heart broken, doesn't know how to deal with pain, takes the easy way out, numbs the pain and has an emotional transformation that just so happens to be mirrored with a physical one. And the second she became human to me is when it made sense. Everything else was kind of secondary. She's a woman scorned who just so happens to know how to fly. I would never dare try to emulate something that's so beyond iconic.

Olly Murs got more than he bargained for during his appearance on Graham Norton's chat show.
Graham Norton well and truly embarrasses Olly Murs on the latest episode of his chat show, set to air tonight (March 1, 2013), revealing the pop-star's crush on Mila Kunis - as you may have guessed by now, Hollywood actress Mila was sitting just inches away. Prankster Norton read out tweets that Murs had written about the 'Oz: The Great And Powerful' actress, leaving the singer red-faced.
Murs has long tweeted of his liking for Mila, though Norton read out a few select cringe-worthy posts on his show. Olly had once selected the actress as the woman he would "most like to have kids with," much to the audience's delight. Apologising, Murs said, "I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would actually meet her," though the cheeky-chappy added, "Olly and Mila has a great ring to it!" Mila - who is in the UK promoting Sam Raimi's Wizard of Oz prequel - took everything in good humour, graciously replying, "This is so flattering".
It's certainly an all-star line-up on tonight's show, with Kunis and Murs being joined by Skyfall actress Dame Judi Dench and Side Effects star Jude Law. As musical guest, Olly will be performing his track 'Army of Two.'

From That 70’s show, to Demi Moore, to divorce, to dating That 70s Show co-star Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher has never been far from the headlines. It’s the acting string to his bow that has been under the spotlight recently, and the 35-year-old has been talking to Esquire about that part of his life.

The likes of Will Ferrell, Rebel Wilson and Paul Stanley were also in attendance the Lakers match last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (February 12, 2013), but there were only two celebrities in the eyes of everybody there - Ashton Kutcher and girlfriend Mila Kunis. Much has been made of the ease with which Kutcher has moved from his marriage with Hollywood actress Demi Moore - they divorced after he cheated on her, remember - in comparison to his ex's apparent struggles with depression and substances.
As always, we'll need to sift through a vast number of sequels and remakes to find something original next year. But here are a few things worth looking forward to. Of course, release dates are subject to change...

Demi Moore received a nice little package on her doormat this week, though it probably wasn’t the Christmas present she was expecting. More than a year after they separated, Moore and ex-husband Ashton Kutcher will finally separate after the Two and a Half Men star filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday.
Kutcher – who is now dating Mila Kunis – cites irreconcilable differences and is not seeking any spousal support from his ex. The filing comes a couple of weeks after Moore was spotted partying at Miami’s Art Basel, with Lenny Kravitz, among others. The personal drama between Kutcher and his wife began around a year ago, when they announced they were splitting amid allegations that the actor had cheated. “As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life,” Moore said at the time. Unfortunately for her, moving forward meant visits to hospital and being cut off from her three daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, according to the New York Daily News.
It could be a pretty rough year for Moore, given that Kutcher has hired the pit-bull divorce attorney Laura Wasser. She has previously handled high net worth dissolutions for the likes of Kim Kardashian, Stevie Wonder, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Heidi Klum.
The Hollywood hacker who leaked photos of Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis is now finding that what he presumably thought was nothing much more than an amusing prank and a brief shot at a quick buck, is something all the more serious.
E! Online reports that Christopher Chaney, a man who had managed to hack into the phones and steal private pictures of more than 50 celebrities, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay $66,179 in restitution. Hope those pictures were worth it, Christopher. During the court case, which was presided over by US district judge S. James Otero, it also emerged that the hacker had disturbingly managed to get into two non-celebrity phones as well, suggesting that this obsession was a little darker than first thought.
Chaney was originally arrested last October in what was dubbed Operation Hackerazzi, part of an FBI investigation into phone hacking scandals. In court he was told that he had a “callous disregard for victims”. He has previously gone on record as apologizing, saying it "was probably one of the worst invasions of privacy someone could experience." However his apologies have gone unnoticed, and he could have had it a lot worse, with wide reports suggesting he could have gone to jail for up to 60 years.
After more than a year apart, Demi Moore still hasn't proceeded with her divorce papers from former love Ashton Kutcher, and according to a number of sources the reason why is because Demi is trying to punish Ashton.
The Inquisitr is but one of the outlets reporting that Demi, playing the role of the woman scorned, is deliberately refusing to further the divorce between herself and Ashton to spite him and his new flame, his former That 70's Show co-star Mila Kunis.
RealityTV Magazine is another who has reported that Demi is being deliberate in her delaying of the divorce, saying that each time the case moves forward, Moore “throws up another objection or demand.”
Continue reading: Demi Moore Divorce Delays Apparently Punishment For Ashton?
Ashton Kutcher might be dating his former co-star Mila Kunis, but his estranged wife, Demi Moore (the one he cheated on…) isn’t about to give the guy the quickie divorce he might be hoping for. And frankly, who can blame her? According to RadarOnline, Demi is seriously toying with Ashton’s patience and dragging out divorce proceedings as much as possible. Sadly for Demi, though, it looks as though her behaviour has lost her the support of her children, who have sided with Kutcher in the drama.
A close source reportedly told Radar “Demi has instructed her attorneys to delay negotiations as much as possible. The main issue they have been fighting over has been the division of assets and the monetary settlement, but it's now gotten to the point where Ashton is willing to cave in to all of Demi's demands just to reach a settlement.” It’s understandable that Demi wants to make life tricky for Ashton; she must be mad that he’s managed to move on so quickly but is it really worth her risking her relationship with her kids?
According to the source, “"Rumer, Scout and Tallulah have all remained close to Ashton and they have completely come down on his side. Rumer especially is really annoyed at her mother for dragging things out and thinks she is behaving like a total b*tch.” Ouch. “It’s a classic case of a woman scorned,” said the source and we’re inclined to agree.
Oscar Diggs is a magician in a circus in Kansas who has about as much moral fibre as he has accomplishments to his name; that being none whatsoever. However, all that changes when he is magically transported to the land of Oz after his hot air balloon gets caught in a ferocious storm. He is about to have his ethics and his trickery put to the test after initially seeing the colourful and sparkling new world as a way of gaining the fortune he so longs for. Things change when he meets three beautiful witches Theodora, Evanora and Glinda who doubt his so-called magical powers are genuine but do believe he could still be great and powerful like the rest of Oz believe him to be if he saved the land from the wicked witch and became the righteous man he truly ought to be.
This vibrant Disney adventure has been adapted by director Sam Raimi ('The Evil Dead', the 'Spider-Man' trilogy) and screenwriters Mitchell Kapner ('Romeo Must Die', 'The Whole Ten Yards') and David Lindsay-Abaire ('Robots', 'Inkheart', 'Rise of the Guardians'). It has been based on the 1900 novel 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' by L. Frank Baum and serves as the prequel to the 1939 movie 'The Wizard of Oz'. Due for release on March 8th 2013.

The Jedis have spoken, and it's Anna Kendrick who they want as Princess Leia in Star Wars Episode 7, the first of the movies in the new Disney franchise. The film should hit theaters in 2015 and all eyes are turning to the forthcoming casting process to see who will snag the major roles.
It's likely that all the parts will be up for grabs, with Disney looking to provide a new take on the franchise - a new era. In a poll run by E! Online, fans weighed in on who they'd like to see take up the role of Princess Leia, the twin sister of Luke Skywalker. Mila Kunis, Anne Hathaway, Rachel McAdams and The Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence all scored admirably, though there was one overall winner: Anna Kendrick. We're guessing it may have something to do with Kendrick's likeness to previous Leia actress Carrie Fisher. Oscar nominated Kendrick rose to prominence in the Twilight films, though won acclaim for her turns in the George Clooney-starring Up In The Air and comedy 50/50, with Seth Rogen. Her schedule looks pretty clear for the next couple of years, though she's set to begin work on comedy-drama Drinking Buddies, set for a 2013 release.
A weekend poll on Broadway.com saw Aaron Tveit the clear choice to play Luke Skywalker in the new movies. The Ghost Town actor took a stonking 25% of the vote.

Reports are 'rife' this week that Demi Moore has had just about enough of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' public displays of affection. The new couple have been spotted lunching in Los Angeles and wistfully wandering around Central Park arm-in-arm. Pretty shocking for two whipper snappers in a relationship.
Nevertheless, the good people at - er - People magazine claim Demi Moore hasn't fully recovered from her meltdown that she suffered after Kutcher's cheating scandal last year. She will mark her 50th birthday on November 11, 2012 (she's 21 years older than Kunis) and is reportedly still struggling with weight issues. A source tells the magazine in this week's cover story, "Her friends aren't convinced she's all better," with another friend revealing that she's both "jealous and frustrated" by Ashton's new romance. It begs the question, is Moore really that bothered? Sure she's had a rough year, though she's still got Hollywood credibility (her recent turn in the excellent 'Margin Call' saw Demi back to her best) and no doubt has decent scripts still coming through the post. Ashton just makes bad films. And gets paid millions for a bad television program. Another source maintained the actress was actually doing pretty well, "As hard as it has been, despite the depression of going through a divorce, she came through it."
Moore will next star in the drama 'Very Good Girls', directed by Oscar nominated writer and producer Naomi Foner. The film boasts an intriguing looking cast, comprising of Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen among others.
After being named Sexiest Woman Alive, Mila Kunis’ interview with Esquire - the mag that handed her the title - shows a few different sides of her personality, all of which undoubtedly led to her being #1 in the magazine’s sexy list, beating out last year’s winner, Rihanna.
"What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be," she said in her interview. "What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be." Philosophical stuff. Kunis, 29, is known for her role on That '70s Show and films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Black Swan, Friends with Benefits and Ted. She also shows her comic prowess by providing the voice of Meg on Family Guy. "I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn't make them proud," she added.
Mila is also one of the more politically attuned celebrities, although in her interview she rejects the label of celeb, preferring instead: “working actress”. Either way, she doesn’t ignore contemporary politics: “The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me,” she explains. “And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it's baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, "I'm a Republican." Why?”
Esquire market themselves, as "Style and Substance" which is perhaps why their sexiest woman alive for 2012 is Mila Kunis. And Mila Kunis truly embodies that phrase- style and substance.
Known primarily for roles in comedy, Kunis has starred in 'That 70s Show' playing a spoiled teenager, voicing Meg on Family Guy and most recently films such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Friends With Benefits, her genuine wit and choice of roles is one marker in many ways that she's more than just a pretty face. She has also taken on far darker roles in The Book of Eli and the instant modern classic, Black Swan.
Kunis has a unique outlook on life, or at least, unique for Hollywood. Her childhood upbringing in the Ukraine, where she lived until the age of 7, and her Ukrainian parents, she feels have a lot to do with how down to earth and centred she is. In an interview with Style Magazine she said "the rules I followed as a kid and as a teenager were that of European parents... [were] very respectful. There was no 'I want'; no slamming doors. There was a line of respect my parents taught me and there is a work ethic that they instilled in me at a very young age." She and her family are all very politically aware and she has been very outspoken in her support of the Democratic party.

It’s official: Mila Kunis is the Sexiest Woman Alive after Esquire handed her the prestigious mantle, USA Today reports.
Esquire describes Kunis as "the most beautiful, opinionated, talkative, and funny movie star that we've all known since she was nine." Born in Ukraine, the 29 year-old is known for myriad roles, including Jackie from That '70s Show, her supporting role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, her part in Black Swan, the voice of Meg on Family Guy, and her starring role alongside Justin Timberlake in Friends with Benefits. In addition to being an accomplished thespian, Kunis wont shy away from real life, hard-hitting political issues: "The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me,” she explained in her interview for Esquire. “And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it's baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, 'I'm a Republican.' Why?"
Her acting prowess, comedic style in Family Guy and wider knowledge of contemporary matters is probably what enamoured the judges, and ultimately led to her being named Sexiest Woman. Well, that and the fact that she’s stunning. Still, it’s nice to see a role model with a sensible head on their shoulders. Mila’s next project is the Spring release of Oz: The Great and Powerful.
The Oscars is the biggest annual event in western film culture, perhaps matched only by the Cannes Film Festival. Winning an Oscar is a director's, actor's or writer's proudest moment and one that will ensure career longevity and continued success. So, to host the Oscars is a pretty big deal- is Seth Macfarlane, a squat comedy writer whose shows have been censored and even banned in the past the right man for the role? And, if he's not, who may have been a better choice?
Seth MacFarlane is the creative mind behind the animated comedy tour-de-force Family Guy, as well as American Dad and The Cleveland show. He branched his career out further this year writing, directing and starring in the movie “Ted”.
However, MacFarlane had a slight mishap when hosting the Emmys this year, in which he couldn't find the mic. If he has a similar slip-up this year, the award directors may be lamenting not opting for someone else. But who else could step up to the mark? Judging on entertainment value and quality The Muppets would have been an excellent choice, or even the man responsible for bringing them vehemently back to life earlier this year, Jason Segel. Neil Patrick Harris is another all-rounder who would be great for the job, or even Mila Kunis.

When the power goes off in their home, the Griffin clan ask dad Peter to regale them with a story (the talking dog Brian had suggested they all read). What he offers is a note for note ripoff of the original Star Wars film, with various figures from the Family Guy universe filling the roles from the 1977 blockbuster. Horny neighbor Glen Quagmire is C-3PO, deli owner Cleveland Brown in R2D2, megalomaniacal baby Stewie is evil Darth Vadar, Quahog mayor Adam West is Grand Moff Tarkin, mom Lois is Princess Leia, and son Chris is Luke Skywalker. With Peter playing Han Solo, Brian as Chewbacca, and old pervert Herbert as Obi-Wan, we get all the sci-fi operatics -- stolen plans, the daring rescue by our heroes, and the last act stand-off against the Death Star.

The movie makes the same mistakes over and over and eventually drains one's patience, but yet I stuck around because the leads played kids I would have liked to know.
