Cast of “American Sniper” Discuss Importance of Film at NYC Premiere

Cast of “American Sniper” Discuss Importance of Film at NYC Premiere

Warner Bros/American Roadshow(NEW YORK) — On Monday night at New York City's Lincoln Center, the cast of American Sniper hit the red carpet to attend the film’s premiere. The movie centers on the life of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history, who served four tours during the Iraq War.Star Bradley Cooper gained over 40 pounds for the role, and had to do extensive training."It was a journey and it took a lot of focus, but it pales in comparison to what the men and women do in our Armed Forces," Cooper said of his preparation for the film. "But it was a little glimmer of the sacrifice that helped me sort of get my way into Chris' shoes."Cooper said the most emotional moment during filming was "probably when the vets came on set and it all made it very immediate. But I have to say the whole thing was pretty emotional; the whole thing."Cooper discovered the story of Kyle through his friend, screenwriter Jason Hall. The Oscar-nominated actor immediately got on board, and after a reported 20 months, convinced Kyle's family to support the project. It was especially hard since Kyle was shot dead at a Texas shooting range by a former Marine suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder."I mean it's something to tell a man's story and he was murdered Feb. 2, 2013 -- I mean it was just a second ago," Cooper said Monday. "And to sit and talk to his parents and try to really have them put the trust in you that you're going to do his son proud it was a responsibility and it was emotional."Sienna Miller portrays Kyle's wife Taya. Their marriage is depicted as being full of challenges as Taya tries to deal with Chris' changes when he returns from combat. Miller said the real-life Taya made it easy to play her on the big screen."Well you try and be as honest as possible. Taya was very open. She gave us access to all of their email correspondence," Miller explained. "She said, 'I know it's difficult to talk about this, but let's talk about everything.' I mean she very easy to investigate. And I love her, so it was not hard to do. She's amazing."Director Clint Eastwood told ABC News Radio the film is important for the U.S. right now. "American society doesn't really understand the war and they don't understand where we are," he said. "As is stated in the film, half of the country doesn't even know there is a war going on." American Sniper hits theaters on Christmas Day, opening nationally on Jan. 16.

Green Day, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Among 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees

Michael Buckner/Getty Images for SXSW(NEW YORK) -- Green Day and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are among six acts that have been selected to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.The 30th class of inductees also includes the late Stevie Ray Vaughn and his band Double Trouble, Bill Withers, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and the late Lou Reed, who is being inducted for his solo work. He was inducted in 1996 as a member of the Velvet Underground.The 1950s vocal group, The “5” Royales, will be recognized with the Early Influence Award.In addition, Ringo Starr will be presented with the Award for Musical Excellence. Of course, Starr was inducted in 1988 as a member of The Beatles. John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison are also in as solo artists.“This means recognition to me," Starr tells Rolling Stone. “And it means, finally, the four of us are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even though we were the biggest pop group in the land, though now it all looks funny in black and white.”Artists are eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first album or single.Green Day’s debut EP, 1,000 Hours, came out in 1989, which means the band is entering the hall in its first year of eligibility.

"I had to go for a walk when I heard the news," Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong tells Rolling Stone."We're in incredible company and I'm still trying to make sense of this. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has always held something special for me because my heroes were in there. This is a great time for us to sort of reflect and look back with gratitude,” Armstrong said.Joan Jett tells Rolling Stone the news is “surreal and very humbling." 

“It's a culmination of all you've dreamed about doing as a musician. I've always been hopeful [that I'd get in] because I think it's an incredible acknowledgment," says Jett, adding, “I'm very proud to be with all these great musicians. It's going to take a few minutes to sink in before I see how I really feel about it."The induction ceremony is set for April 18 at Cleveland's Public Hall.

Chris Hemsworth Says His Partying Days Are Over, Reveals His Hollywood Best Friend

Chris Hemsworth Says His Partying Days Are Over, Reveals His Hollywood Best Friend

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Chris Hemsworth may be the sexiest man alive and an A-list movie star, but he's also a committed family man."The fame, the parties, the women -- I did that stuff back home," the Thor star told GQ about his native Australia. "I got away with a lot more over there. Then I came here and sort of started over."About the same time, he met Spanish model and actress Elsa Pataky. They married over the Christmas holiday in 2010 and now are parents to a 2-year-old daughter and twin sons.Hemsworth said becoming a dad worried him. "Just not screwing it up," he admitted.Now, he not only has the fatherhood thing down, he's also overprotective when it comes to little brother Liam Hemsworth, star of The Hunger Games franchise."I’ve watched Liam do things I did at his age, like being in relationships he shouldn’t be in, or being reckless just to prove a point. And I had no empathy. My mom had to remind me I was the same way," Hemsworth told GQ.If Hemsworth seems wiser than his years, then it shouldn't be surprising that his best friend turns out to be Matt Damon, who is 13 years older. The two actors and their families even take annual trips to Costa Rica together."We became friends around the time I started to work, and I've really benefited from watching how he handles himself," Hemsworth told the magazine. "Matt's just a normal guy who has the movie-star thing figured out."

The word, whcih "allows us to identify and isolate an idea, issue or group," topped the second place word, "nostalgia," to be selected as the word of the year.

Bill Cosby’s Wife Issues Statement Criticizing Media for Not ‘Vetting’ Accusers

Bill Cosby’s Wife Issues Statement Criticizing Media for Not ‘Vetting’ Accusers

George Napolitano/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- As allegations of sexual misconduct continue to surround Bill Cosby, many have wondered how his wife of 50 years, Camille, has been affected by the scandal. On Monday, she issued a statement taking the media to task for portraying her husband as "a man I do not know."In her statement, Mrs. Cosby notes that she met the comic legend in 1963 and married him in 1964. "The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work," she says. "He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew."However, she says, "A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know. It is also a portrait painted by individuals and organizations whom many in the media have given a pass."Mrs. Cosby then says that she feels that those accusing Cosby of misconduct are having those accusations accepted at face value, with no questions asked."There appears to be no vetting of my husband’s accusers before stories are published or aired. An accusation is published, and immediately goes viral," she says. She then equates the situation to the recent article in Rolling Stone magazine which the publication later apologized for because it didn't properly vet its sources."We all followed the story of the article in the Rolling Stone concerning allegations of rape at the University of Virginia," she says. "The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue. Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband – until that story unwound."She concludes by saying, "None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim. But the question should be asked -- who is the victim?"Cosby's lawyer has previously denied the allegations made against the comedian. He has never faced criminal charges in connection with the claims.

Lindsay Lohan Credits London with Making Her Grow Up

Lindsay Lohan Credits London with Making Her Grow Up

star/GC Images(LONDON) -- Lindsay Lohan credits her move to London with helping her to finally grow up because of the freedom it has given her from the paparazzi and her partying friends."I can go for a run here on my own," she told The Guardian newspaper this weekend. "I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up, and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else."The moment she realized she was finally free came when she took a vacation to Greece last summer. "It was the first time I have ever just been on a vacation by myself," she said. "I just wandered about on my own! I turned off my phone. It was so extraordinarily freeing for me. Like another life."The 28-year-old actress moved to London nine months ago to escape New York and her own notoriety, stoked by stints in rehab and jail, tabloid headlines and her OWN reality show. Soon after, she made her theater debut in David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow, appearing on stage eight times a week for three months, not once missing a performance.The routine of a play grounded her in a way her work had never done previously."In L.A. I didn’t know what to do apart from go out every night," she told the newspaper. "That’s when my friends were free. And I would go out and there would be all these cameras there and that’s when it became difficult."Now, Lohan plans to make London her permanent home."I won’t live in L.A. again, hell no," she said in the interview. "My friends tell me s*** when they come over I don’t want to hear. I don’t even know who got married and who got pregnant. You turn on the news in L.A. and it is all gossip about people. All the stuff that is going on in the world right now and this gossip is the news?"She laughed. "I love the BBC. I haven’t heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here," she said. "That has been really weird for me, and great."

Beverly Johnson Discusses Bill Cosby Allegations on “The View”

ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) -- Model Beverly Johnson continues to speak out about an alleged incident between her and Bill Cosby in the mid-1980s, in which she claims Cosby drugged her.

Her allegation comes in the wake of numerous women who claim the comedian sexually abused them, mostly after being drugged. Cosby has denied the allegations through his lawyer.On Monday's The View, moderator Whoopi Goldberg questioned Johnson, asking, "You came out because the stories that these women were telling were similar to what you had experienced. He did not rape you?""I don't think so, no," Johnson replied."You're not sure?" Goldberg pressed."I...don't remember anything after I got in a taxi and said, 'Did I just call Bill Cosby ****?'" Johnson answered.Johnson claimed that she was drugged by Cosby, while meeting with him at his home to discuss a potential acting role for The Cosby Show. Johnson said Cosby offered her a cappuccino and that after taking a few sips, she realized something had been slipped in her drink.Johnson said she then started to swear at Cosby and call him names, whereupon Cosby allegedly became angry and loaded her into a taxi. Johnson says she later tried to call Cosby to confront him about the incident, but his wife Camille picked up the phone.When asked why it took her so long to come forward, Johnson said, "I thought it was my responsibility and my conscience would not let me sit there in silence any longer."Johnson initially spoke with Vanity Fair about the allegations.

Seth Rogen and James Franco Address the Sony Hack

Seth Rogen and James Franco Address the Sony Hack

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) -- In the aftermath of the recent Sony hack, The Interview stars Seth Rogen and James Franco are standing behind the movie, which centers on a fictional assassination attempt of North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.Rogen, who also co-wrote the film, told ABC News' Good Morning America that he never could have predicted the drama surrounding the film."I can't definitively say I know the ramifications of the storm. I mean, I don't know if the hacking honestly is because of our movie, definitively or not," he said. "I know that it has been the center of a lot of media attention lately. It is weird because we just wanted to make a really funny, entertaining movie and the movie itself is very silly and wasn't meant to be controversial in any way."As a result, he doesn't regret making it. Rogen, 32, who co-wrote the movie, said that it's the responsibility of others "who are much smarter than me" to analyze the possible repercussions of making a film like this. His job, he said, is just to make people laugh.It is still unclear who is responsible for hacking into the computers of Sony Pictures Entertainment, the studio behind The Interview. North Korean officials have said their government is not responsible for the hacking, though one top official told the country's news agency that it "might be a righteous deed of the supporters and sympathizers with" North Korea."At this point, it's too late to have any [second thoughts]. I mean, no, I think again, I like the movie. I can't in my head over-connect everything surrounding it with the movie itself," Rogen said. "When I've seen the movie with 30-plus audiences in 30-plus movie theaters and every time, they really like it, that's what I have to keep coming back to. We set out to make a movie that was really entertaining to audiences and I genuinely think we did that. And that's where my job ends."

Amal Clooney: Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating Person of the Year

Thanassis Stavrakis - Pool/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Amal Clooney, George Clooney’s beautiful new wife, was chosen as the most fascinating person of 2014. Formerly Amal Alamuddin, most people know very little about her.Amal managed to do the seemingly undoable, locking down a man thought to be one of the world’s most determined bachelors. In fact, Clooney, who had been briefly married in the early 1990’s, told Walters himself in 1995 that "I’m never going to get married again.”That interview became so well known that Clooney told Walters in a 2006 interview that he no longer had to tell women he was dating that he wasn't interested in marriage since they'd seen the first interview with Walters.“You did my work for me,” he told her.However, meeting Amal changed George’s mind about bachelorhood.They met at a charity event in Italy in 2013.Born in Lebanon, Amal moved to a London suburb with her family as a child. She went to Oxford, got a law degree at NYU, and while in New York, clerked for then-federal judge Sonia Sotomayor. When she returned to London, Amal became a well-known human rights attorney with clients such as Julian Assange, Yulia Tymoshenko, and Kofi Annan.Walters called the wedding perfect -- from Amal’s bespoke hat to the spectacular wedding dress designed by the late Oscar De La Renta.With her marriage to Clooney, Walters says, Amal joins the ranks of Jackie Onassis, Princess Diana and Kate Middleton -- everything she does, says or wears is officially...fascinating.

James Bond Script Stolen in Sony Hacker Attack; Studio Cancels Kevin Hart Press Day

James Bond Script Stolen in Sony Hacker Attack; Studio Cancels Kevin Hart Press Day

Koichi Kamoshida/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — An “early version” of the script for the next James Bond film, Spectre, was among the documents stolen in a Sony hacker attack.A statement from Eon Productions confirmed the theft of the screenplay, which it described as confidential and protected by law.

“Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Danjaq LLC will take all necessary steps to protect their rights against the persons who stole the screenplay, and against anyone who makes infringing uses of it or attempts to take commercial advantage of confidential property it knows to be stolen,” the statement read.Late last month, hackers attacked Sony’s computer systems, stealing unreleased copies of films, top-secret corporate files, and personal emails from Sony execs -- much of which have since been made public.Actor Kevin Hart fired back after it was revealed one of the emails sent to embattled exec Amy Pascal reportedly referred to Hart as a "whore," in reference to his promotion of the hit Think Like a Man Too, and now it seems he's being kept away from the mics. The New York Daily News reports a planned press day for his upcoming movie The Wedding Ringer was cancelled by the studio; Sony reps say it's to keep the focus on the movie, and not the emails -- about which journalists would have certainly asked Hart.Lawyers for Sony have sent a letter to media outlets, including ABC News, asking them not to broadcast information allegedly stolen from the company by hackers. This includes recent emails from top execs that have come to light, in which some not-so-nice things were said about big-name actors and others. The letter states that if media companies don’t comply, they could be held responsible for damages.Since the hack attack started there has been a growing debate over the publishing of such material, with some saying there’s no difference between these documents and those hacked naked pictures of celebrities earlier this year.
