Jude Law reveals how he gained (and lost) 30 pounds


Jude Law needed to bulk up for his role in the new film Dom Hemingway, which meant finding a way to put on about 30 pounds in a very short amount of time. After production wrapped, of course, he had to get slim again, so how did he do it? The answer isn’t all that shocking.

“I was banned from exercise and just encouraged to eat all the wrong stuff,” Law told PEOPLE at the film’s premiere in New York City on Thursday night, hosted by The Cinema Society & Links of London. “I ate a lot of red meat, a lot of steaks and burgers, and ice cream.”

His go-to flavor for the latter?

“Cookies ‘n cream…but I’ll be happy if I never see another tub of it again in my life,” he says.

“I’m not a big gorger, so it was the Coca-Cola that got me,” dishes the British actor. “I was drinking five to ten a day, and I just got kind of sick of it.”

Unsurprisingly then, when the film wrapped and it came time to shed the pounds, Law couldn’t have been more ready.

“I was really happy to be able to go for a run!” he says.

So let’s all take a note from Jude. If you ever want to pile on 30 lbs in a short amount of time, just eat everything in sight that looks delicious. That oughta do it!

Russell Crowe isn’t Catholic, but he likes Pope Francis


If Russell Crowe doesn’t strike you as a particularly religious man, it’s for good reason – he isn’t one. In fact, he doesn’t really partake in the whole “faith” situation, but oddly, he still really likes Pope Francis, whom he recently met, fulfilling a longtime goal that started with Twitter outreach.

As he explained on Good Morning America:

“Look I’m not Catholic and I’ve never felt any connection with any previous Pope, but I like this guy,” he explained.

“I like what he says… he’s changing the tone of the way you regard the Pope and I think it is a magnificent thing. I was very privileged and humbled to be in that environment.”

I think a lot of people feel that way about Pope Francis, actually. As far as Catholic leaders go, he’s certainly a step up – and any step is a good step for the Catholic church.
I wonder if Russell’s interest in meeting the Pope stems from his role in Noah? Even though it’s a “liberal reimagining” of the Biblical tale, of course…

Daniel Radcliffe wants to do a “weird” movie musical


Daniel Radcliffe is probably best known for his role as the lead in the Harry Potter franchise, but he has certainly managed to book a fair variety of roles since the wizarding series ended. One thing he hasn’t done, however, is a big movie musical – but if he has his way, that’ll change soon.

You’ve done a musical, you’ve done drama, you’ve done dark comedy, adventure, everything. What other sort of roles are on your bucket list?
Combining two of those things. I would love to do a big film musical. I think when they’re done right, they’re incredibly exciting and fun and cool. Everyone thinks of the ones that come to mind immediately like Grease and things like that, but what was that slightly bizarre but wonderful John Turturro film? Romance & Cigarettes. It’s a bizarre musical, and I love weird, interesting, different stuff like that.

Romance & Cigarettes was definitely a great, underrated film, so Radcliffe has great taste on that front. Could I see him doing a similar thing? Eh, I’m not sure – then again, I don’t think I’ve ever been able to get him out of the Harry Potter box. What do you think?

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are having some “tension” in the Bahamas


Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their “conscious uncoupling” (read: impending divorce) on the Goop website just the other day, but they made sure to pack up the kids and head to the Bahamas to avoid the media frenzy before they hit the publish button.

Of course, that won’t stop the rumor mill from spinning, and while they may not have to directly confront questions from the press for now, there are still reports that the pair are having “some tension” at their luxury resort… presumably because, you know, they’re splitting up for a reason and don’t really want to be in the same place.

A second insider tells Us that the foursome are staying at a rented private beachfront home in Eleuthera; the private, ultra-secluded residence costs roughly $7,500 weekly. Since their arrival, Paltrow and Martin have been hanging out with the kids by the beach, and also carved out some time for horseback riding. “When only Gwyneth and Chris are together, there appears to be some tension,” the insider says. “But when the kids are with them, they appear to be one big happy family with no cares in the world.”

Still, “there are no signs of any PDA , holding hands, or kissing on the beach. There was definitely a noticeably intimate distance,” continues the source Thankfully, the kids appeared to be “happy and playful” and seem unfazed by their parents’ drama.

I find it hilarious that anyone would think there WOULD be any signs of “PDA”, considering, you know, they just announced the fact that they’re no longer together. Wouldn’t really make sense for them to be lying around cuddling, would it? The most important part is that the kids are protected, and they seem to be doing a pretty okay job of it thus far. The drama continues…
