News: Pattinson Struggled Through Nude Scenes

Seems to be a lot Robert stories over the past few days. I am sure he doesnt need to worry about that.

Robert Pattinson struggled through nude scenes in Salvador Dali biopic Little Ashes and blames his English upbringing for making him so uptight.

The Twilight heartthrob plays the Spanish painter in the movie and admits scenes in which he had to strip down and show off his naked body were tough to shoot.

Pattinson tells, “It’s funny because Spanish people… have no problem with nudity at all, and English people obviously do have, like, the most enormous problem with it.

“It’s like little things, like when I saw my father getting changed for swimming (and) I got, like, traumatised by it.”

News: Douglas Questions Marijuana Legalisation

I’m loving all the Michael Douglas news over the past few days !!!

Michael Douglas is urging U.S. government officials to consider legalising the use of marijuana.

The Traffic star insists America’s corrupt history seems destined to repeat itself until his countrymen can smoke freely, recalling the violence incited by Prohibition.

And the 64-year-old is adamant that making cannabis legal would boost America’s flagging economy and make the world more peaceful.

He says, “It’s an interesting issue with all of these troubles that are going on… and trying to resolve things. It’s an interesting thing that’s being raised again.

“I’m questioning it. We’re trying to get a lot of money for health and education and I’m wondering… you look at these gangs, and I look back at Prohibition. When we didn’t allow alcohol, what did we have? We had gangs. We had big gangs. It’s something that needs to be discussed a little more. It’s an economic issue and a violence issue.”

Kerr ‘Too Busy’ To Settle Down With Bloom

If she doesnt want to . . . I will !!! I love Orlando !!!

Orlando Bloom’s model girlfriend Miranda Kerr has no plans to wed the actor in the near future – because she’s “too busy” with work to contemplate settling down.

The Australian Victoria’s Secret beauty has been dating Pirates of the Caribbean star Bloom since late 2007 and the couple was forced to deny rumours of an engagement in December.

Kerr admits she would love to get married and start a family one day – but not just yet.

She tells, “It’s definitely something, one day down the track, I want. But for now, I’m happy. I’m just too busy with work that I can’t be thinking of that right now.”

Efron Joins Influential Stars List

Thats really cool and I can see why.

Zac Efron has been named one of the world’s most influential people by a U.S. magazine – and the teen idol is in good company alongside U.S. President Barack Obama, George Clooney, Bono and Oprah Winfrey.

Efron, who shot to fame in Disney’s High School Musical franchise, has made his first entry in Time magazine’s annual list of the planet’s top 100 influential figures.

And Efron’s Me And Orson Welles co-star Claire Danes is adamant the 21 year old is worthy of the honour, comparing him to Leonardo DiCaprio.

Danes, who starred with DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet, tells the magazine: “(Working with Zac) I couldn’t help being reminded of the time I had spent with another gifted idol, Leonardo DiCaprio, about a decade before. I saw the simmering ardour of the teenage masses turn into unbridled hysteria after Titanic was released. But this was even more intense. The difference, I realised, was that Zac is not only an actor but also a musician, a bona fide song-and-dance man. We ladies are defenceless against such a combination.

“But I suppose we all know that Zac is a song-and-dance man. What is less known – and what I had the privilege of learning firsthand – is that he is a performer capable of great subtlety and vulnerability. It seems Zac is not only an entertainer but also an artist. He is going to make us swoon for many years to come.”

Other stars on the list include rapper M.I.A., actors Brad Pitt and Tom Hanks, sports star Tiger Woods as well as actresses Kate Winslet and Tina Fey.
