I feel great. I’ve been doing this for 20 years. I have a very different idea of my place and where i want to be.”Alba talked about her “new-found kind of confidence” and said it comes from “having a personal life…I have something that so important to me: my family, obviously.

Sony Launching Female Superhero Movie

Sony Launching Female Superhero Movie

Sony/Columbia(LOS ANGELES) — Sony Pictures is reportedly planning a female-fronted superhero movie that will come from the world of Spider-Man. There’s no word yet on which character they’ll focus on, but the target date is supposedly sometime in 2017.Insiders say it’s part of a larger plan to revamp Sony’s Spider-Man Universe that includes the studio’s recent move of pushing the next installment of its Spider-Man franchise out of 2016 and into 2018.If a female fronted superhero movie does happen, it will be the first one with a leading lady since Marvel’s Elektra in 2005. X-Men, Avengers, even Guardians of the Galaxy all feature female superheroes, but they’re always part of a group mostly dominated by guys.It should be noted that while all those characters started in the pages of Marvel Comics, for now the rights to make movies centering on the web-slinger and his rogues gallery sit with Sony; X-Men with 20th Century Fox, which produced the aforementioned Daredevil dud spin-off Elektra.Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige tells ABC News Radio that a female-fronted superhero movie is definitely coming soon. Feige explains, “The answer is yes, the question is when. And that’s what we discuss now internally, trying to figure out, because right now we’re only doing two movies a year, and we’ve got a number of them in the pipeline already, when and how do we do that in the best way.” Guardians, and The Avengers — and movies featuring the individual Avengers — are the property of Disney-owned Marvel Studios.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Oprah, Spielberg Cook Up “The Hundred-Foot Journey”

Buena Vista(NEW YORK) — Two of the most recognizable faces in the entertainment business, Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey have teamed up again for a love letter to fine dining, the exotic comedy The Hundred-Foot Journey.
In the movie, Helen Mirren plays the fussy French owner of an acclaimed restaurant whose life — both personally and gastronomically — is turned upside down when a family-owned Indian establishment moves in right next door. The film had its premiere in New York City Monday night, and on the red carpet, Spielberg said teaming up with Winfrey again was a no-brainer. “Oh, she’s a wonderful collaborator, a wonderful partner…we’re truly great friends for 30 years,” he said.Given the movie’s lavish, hunger-inducing shots of amazing dishes, asking Oprah to name her favorite food was a no-brainer. “I’m a truffle freak,” she exclaimed. “I mean I walk around with truffle salt, that’s on my rider for the hotels; truffle salt, truffle oil. I want to go to Alba and do the truffle hunt with the pigs.”The Hundred-Foot Journey, which also stars Charlotte Le Bon and Manish Dayal, opens nationwide Friday.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Why Christina Hendricks’ Agency Fired Her After She Signed on for “Mad Men”

Why Christina Hendricks’ Agency Fired Her After She Signed on for “Mad Men”

Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) — Christina Hendricks’ character on Mad Men, Joan, is one of the most powerful and beloved women on one of the most critically-acclaimed shows on television.But it wasn’t always that way, especially when the actress first signed on for the role.Hendricks told the Guardian that she and her manager loved the role when they first saw it, but her agency felt otherwise.”They said, ‘It’s a period piece, it’s never going to go anywhere. We need you to make money and this isn’t going to make money.’” she said. “They ended up dropping me.”But Hendricks didn’t let that incident stop her from taking this role she said she was “in love with.”Hendricks also remembered her mother’s reaction to the Mad Men pilot in 2007.”I turned to them [her mother and her mother's friend] and said, ‘Is it good?’ And they both said, ‘Oh yeah, it’s good.’ I said, ‘Is it boring?’ and my mother said, ‘No, but I didn’t like that he [Don Draper] was cheating on his wife at the end,’” she said.Now, Hendricks has been on the show eight years and the role has led to movies like God’s Pocket opposite the late Philip Seymour Hoffman and other projects like Dark Places alongside Charlize Theron.Looks like that agency was just a little wrong about the whole Mad Men slight.

Kim Kardashian Considered Adopting an Orphan in Thailand

Kim Kardashian Considered Adopting an Orphan in Thailand

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) — Kim Kardashian’s trip to Thailand earlier this year was eye-opening.
However, it could have been even more life-changing than it actually was: The reality TV star briefly contemplated adopting a local orphan named Pink.”I literally cannot stop thinking about her,” Kardashian said in a clip from her family’s E! TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “I told Kanye, I was like, ‘Honestly, this girl is so sweet and so cute. … I would totally adopt her.”Kardashian, 33, and West, 37, are already parents to a 1-year-old daughter, North. West’s response to Kardashian’s idea was not captured by the TV cameras, though Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, was opposed to the idea.
“That’s a little aggressive,” she said. “I think you can’t just go to an orphanage and fall in love with a child and then take them home like you’re shopping.”
When Kardashian insisted that wasn’t what she was thinking about, Jenner proposed another idea.
“You get very passionate about things and then you don’t think about the whole thing through,” she said. “I bet there are other things that you could do that would make all the difference in this little girl’s life… without bringing her home.”

After the show ended, they refused to divulge much more about their relationship, and a few weeks ago, when Galavis was seen talking to another woman, some wondered if he and Ferrell had split.”People are going to say what they want to say. …I can’t pay attention to that,” he said. “I don’t like to read what people write, because they don’t know what our relationship is all about.”To further the point that they’re still happy together, Ferrell had been taking selfies of herself with her boyfriend recently.”Don’t know what I like more, this guy or my @yumikim romper,” she wrote next to one photo of the two kissing. “JK it’s totally the romper ?? #onlykidding #yumikim”
