The actress – who portrays Black Widow in ‘Iron Man 2’ – admits she enjoyed working alongside the actor, who plays the titular character and his alter ego Tony Stark, because he gives so much input. She said: “Robert was incredibly supportive, so enthusiastic for my character and the work that we were doing. He’s completely centered and present.

“To work with somebody that’s present like that is such a gift.” However, the ‘Lost in Translation’ actress lamented the fact she didn’t get the chance to act alongside Mickey Rourke – who plays villain Ivan Vanko – a great deal while shooting the film.

She said: “I really didn’t get the opportunity to work with Mickey very much.”

Scarlett’s fellow ‘Iron Man 2’ actress Gwyneth Paltrow recently heaped praise on her co-star, saying she “adores” her.

She said recently: “I adore Scarlett. She is really funny. She swears a lot. She has a dirty sense of humour! She loves to cook. She’s a girl after my own heart.”

The Australian singer – who took part in a raunchy photo shoot with a British magazine in order to promote her new album ‘Ten’ – admitted she wasn’t expecting to be involved in such raunchy images and regrets the way she was portrayed in the sexy pictures.

She told BANG Showbiz: “The first single from the album is called ‘Woman on a Mission’, it was just kind of getting into character for what I thought the song was about, which is that it’s OK to show off a bit of your body and your curves. Not to the extent that I did in the
magazine…

“They removed my top, they didn’t say they were going to do that, so that was a bit of a shock to see myself in that light, I was fed the wrong information, people didn’t keep their promises. I wouldn’t do it again, you can never tell what the outcome’s going to be.”

Despite this, the 19-year-old star – who also posed in the video for the single in a number of revealing outfits – believes she can flash a bit of flesh and still be a good role model.

She said: “It’s cool to be sexy and confident with your body, and I’m setting a good example, I have a real body, yeah I look good.”


Celine Dion is pregnant with twins

The ’Think Twice’ singer and her husband Rene Angelil – who already have nine-year-old son Rene-Charles together – are preparing to extend their brood after their sixth round of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) was successful.

Celine is currently 14 weeks pregnant and the couple are expected to find out the sex of their babies next month.

Rene told People.com: “We’re ecstatic. Celine is just hoping for a healthy pregnancy. She was hoping for one baby and the news that we are having two is a double blessing!”

The 42-year-old songstress has had an emotional few months as she tried to have more children with her 68-year-old spouse.

Last August the couple announced they were expecting a child following a successful round of IVF, but in November her spokesperson confirmed the pregnancy had failed.

Just days ago Celine hinted there was some “good news” to come about a second pregnancy.

She said: “Well we’re crossing our fingers. We’re waiting for good news hopefully. I don’t want to talk about it so much because I’m superstitious, but I know people have been very wonderful for us and praying for us. Right now we are crossing our fingers, we hope for the best and I can’t wait to give people good news.”

The French-Canadian star deliberately didn’t want to release information about her bump until she was sure she was pregnant.

She added: “Once you live in show business and everything spreads out so quick and every pregnancy you have to wait three months to make sure it’s all ok and it’s nerve racking. We’re not getting any younger and you always think it’s your last chance, you’re last try.”

Angelina Jolie doesn’t clean

The actress – admits she can never see herself playing a character like Cinderella, fairytale character who is transformed from a drudge to the belle of the ball by a fairy godmother – because it is nothing like how she is in real life.

Angelina – who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt – said: “The cleaning the floors or the knight in shining armour? I don’t know, I don’t think any of them sound like me.”

The ‘Tourist’ actress admitted she is mainly attracted to playing characters who are “vulnerable”, even though some of them seem tough. She explained: “I play women that I think are vulnerable. Like in ‘Girl, Interrupted’, I have a huge breakdown – very emotional, very unhappy, but she’s considered psychotic and a scary, tough woman.”

While Angelina prefers “vulnerable” characters, a former bodyguard of the actress recently described her as “totally psycho”.

He said: “Angelina has a public and a private persona. In my opinion, the real Angelina is self-centered and a control freak. She has no patience at all. She doesn’t do things out of the kindness of her heart.

“And she’s totally psycho … she screams and yells a lot, then ways away.”

The 16-year-old singer admits he ended his romance with his girlfriend of seven months during a heated call but insists it is not something he’s proud of.

He said: “I have dumped a girl over the phone – it’s terrible isn’t it? We got into an argument during a phone call so I basically said, I don’t wanna be with you any more,’ and she cried. I saw her after that and it was a bit awkward, but we’re not enemies now, so that’s cool. “But I wouldn’t recommend it, it’s very mean!”

Justin also went against his mother’s wishes when he started dating the girl as she didn’t want him to get romantically involved with anyone before he was 16.

He told Top of the Pops magazine: “My mom said I wasn’t allowed to date until I was 16, but I broke that rule. She found out and said, ‘I’m disappointed in you.’ ”
