Miranda Kerr wore a variety of bikinis for a shoot in Sydney yesterday. She wore two suits, and even frolicked on the beach with other models and some shirtless guys. The Victoria's Secret Angel is no stranger to donning a two-piece in front of the lens, and she's also known to break out a bikini while off on vacation with husband Orlando Bloom and their son, Flynn. Last month, the trio enjoyed a getaway on Australia's Hamilton Island. Since wrapping up that excursion, Miranda's been hanging out in Sydney with Flynn and handling some other modeling jobs, like a stint on the catwalk for David Jones. Her latest ads for airline Qantas were recently unveiled, too. Orlando got in on the fun as well — he photographed Miranda for T Magazine.
Kristen Stewart emerged Monday in LA for the first time since her cheating scandal with Rupert Sanders late last month. Kristen stayed low-key in a backward hat, though she did put her toned abs on display in a crop top. Pictures of Kristen and Rupert kissing were released, revealing that she had cheated on boyfriend Robert Pattinson. Kristen has since been lying low, while Rob has been out and about promoting Cosmopolis. Rob hit the red carpet for the film's premiere in NYC last week and made multiple other press stops during his stay in the Big Apple. Rob was faced with many questions about Kristen and the status of their relationship in many of his interviews, but he was able to avoid talking about the drama in his personal life and kept the focus on his film.
Kristen, meanwhile, has skipped her recent promotional duties for On the Road, leaving costar Tom Sturridge to attend the London premiere with fellow castmates Sam Riley and Danny Morgan last week. She is reportedly planning to make an appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, though, when the movie screens at the annual event. Kristen also has Breaking Dawn Part II coming up, though the latest is that she, Taylor Lautner, and Rob have decided to skip upcoming Twilight conventions this time around.
Miranda Kerr was in a bikini yesterday frolicking on the sand, testing the water, and hanging out with shirtless guys — another tough day on the job! We're looking at Miranda's most recent swimsuit shoots — as well as going behind the scenes of her Lipton Iced Tea project — in today's PopSugar Rush.
The adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower comes out this Fall, and I took a trip to the set last year to observe a day of filming and interview the cast. The movie tells the story of a teen, Charlie (Logan Lerman), who has a hard time fitting in until he finds a special group of friends. Emma Watson plays Sam, a high school senior who gets close to Charlie but struggles with her own issues. When I and a few reporters chatted with Watson about the film, she talked about why she wanted to play Sam so much, moving on after Harry Potter, and how director Stephen Chbosky, who also wrote the book, envisioned her as Sam before she signed on.
What attracted you to this role and this story?
Emma Watson: I'd been reading scripts after the fourth Harry Potter movie around the age of 15, 16 and just didn't read anything that I really loved instantly . . . it's almost not that I had lost interest, but my agent was starting to get stressed. I wasn't really into anything and then I read Perks of Being a Wallflower, and it's so beautifully written and so funny. I was incredibly moved by it and just instantly knew A) that the movie had to be made and B) that I had to play Sam. I really wanted to play Sam, and was just really drawn to her, so when I met with Stephen, we just instantly clicked and it felt like I was meeting an old friend. Then I met with Logan, and I knew he was the perfect Charlie, and it was just a really obvious, obvious choice for me.
How did you get your American accent to play Sam?
EW: I worked with a dialect coach before the movie. I'd rather give a really good performance — obviously I'm hoping that my accent is going to be perfect — but I kind of didn't want that to take over too much. My other castmates have been incredibly supportive; if I ever need to check anything, I'm just like, "Say this," and then they'll say it and I'll be like, "OK, thanks," and that will be it. So, it's been easy.
Find out what else Watson had to say about Perks, like her favorite scenes and the '90s fashion, after the jump.
Ryan Gosling was back in costume last night to do reshoots for Gangster Squad. The '40s-era picture was originally scheduled to open this Fall, but the release has since been moved to January 2013. Ryan stars in the film alongside a range of other big names, like Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, and Emma Stone. Yesterday, though, Ryan worked on scenes alongside just Josh. We saw the guys and Emma working on the picture about a year ago, in December 2011. Since then, Ryan fit in another movie — he was in Thailand for the beginning of 2012 making Only God Forgives. His girlfriend, Eva Mendes, was able to visit with him in Thailand, but his latest location in Hollywood makes their spending time together considerably easier. One of Ryan's next trips should be alongside Eva, since their joint project, The Place Beyond the Pines, will debut at next month's Toronto International Film Festival.
Blake Lively and Leighton Meester linked up with their male costars on the NYC set of Gossip Girl yesterday. After arriving at her trailer in a long, hippie-esque dress, Blake changed into a formal number covered in sequins. Leighton wore a robe over a similar fancy dress. Ed Westwick and Penn Badgley got a head start on the shooting earlier in the morning with Michelle Trachtenberg and Chace Crawford. The upcoming season of GG promises more of the drama we've come to expect from the Upper East Siders — check out the trailer for the final season of Gossip Girl for a peek at what's to come.
Nicole Kidman posed for photographer Mario Testino in nearly nothing for V Magazine's Travel Issue. She's kicking off promotions for The Paperboy, which has her opposite Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey. The trio will show off the film at the Toronto and NY Film Festivals in the coming weeks. Nicole bared plenty of skin for the sexy spread and also chatted about her spontaneity, motherhood, and a particularly interesting scene she shared with Zac. Here's more from Nicole Kidman in V:
- On being spontaneous: "I don't really make decisions. I go with the flow. If I were a strategically minded person, I think I would have a far different career. But I would be more outlandish if I could. A lot of times you just don’t get the chance."
- On peeing on Zac Efron in The Paperboy: "The peeing thing, I didn't think was that weird, because I was in character. That was for the jellyfish. And for me it said so much about Charlotte. One, she's protecting him. Two, she's tough as nails and no one else is going to pee on this guy. All of that made total sense to me. I just went for it and didn't overthink it."
- On missing her kids: "But time is so precious and I love the sound of them and the feel of them. I just don't want to miss anything, and I don't want them to go 'Where's my mom?' So I'm working through that."
Summer is winding down, but our PopSugar 2012 Shirtless Bracket is still burning with hotness! Good-looking guys are vying for this year's title of sexiest six-pack, but some of Hollywood's biggest stars need your help to unseat the current leader, Robert Pattinson.
Abs are an important factor in casting superheroes, especially the leading men lucky enough to helm major movie franchises. Chris Hemsworth bared skin playing Thor, but he'll need your votes to hammer home a win. Ryan Reynolds put his entire body on display in a figure-hugging Green Lantern costume, and Henry Cavill's pecs of steel are headed to the big screen in next Summer's Superman reboot, Man of Steel. We've seen X-Men star Hugh Jackman transform into his alter ego, Wolverine, in front of cameras, and it's his toned torso that's been known to steal scenes. These are just a few of the sexy superheroes in the running, so be sure to vote for your favorite crime fighter by filling out your shirtless bracket!
Michelle Williams and Matilda Ledger soaked up the sunshine at an LA park this morning. Absent from the outing was Michelle's boyfriend, Jason Segel, who's been keeping the girls company during their stay on the West Coast. Jason and Michelle took Matilda on a special trip to Hollywood's Magic Castle this past weekend. Jason and Michelle have snuck in grown-up dates and on Monday were arm in arm for lunch at Little Dom's. Jason's also hard at work on How I Met Your Mother ahead of its return to CBS next month. His HIMYM costar Cobie Smulders shared some excitement from the set. Cobie tweeted a picture from behind the scenes, writing, "Home sweet home..it's good to be back!!"
