Now, she claims that she never told anyone about the alleged iPhone attack and said that she just had a “simple argument” with her husband. Earlier, cops said that she accused Johnny Depp of smashing her face with an iPhone, but denied to file a report with them. So, they gave her a business card in case she wanted to file a report and left the place. </p> <p>Now if Johnny’s right and its proved that he never assaulted her, she could be prosecuted for a felony — for filing a phony police case, reported TMZ.com.</p> Hollywood Wed, 01 Jun 2016 00:00:00 +0530 500499 at http://www.asianage.com Katy Perry’s Twitter account hacked! http://www.asianage.com/hollywood/katy-perry-s-twitter-account-hacked-497 <div class="all-attached-images"><div style="width: 430px" class="image-attach-body"><a href="/katy-perry-496"><img src="http://www.asianage.com/sites/default/files/images/KATY PERRY (3).jpg" alt="Katy Perry" title="Katy Perry" class="image image-content_image " width="430" height="350" /></a><p class="caption">Katy Perry</p></div> </div><p>Katy Perry had a memorable Memorial Day.

Jane Bond. Who? http://www.asianage.com/hollywood/double-oh-bond-jane-bond-who-482 <div class="all-attached-images"><div style="width: 430px" class="image-attach-body"><a href="/bbbbjpg-484"><img src="http://www.asianage.com/sites/default/files/images/bbbb.jpg" alt="bbbb.jpg" title="bbbb.jpg" class="image image-content_image " width="430" height="287" /></a></div> </div><p><strong>The challenges and the many questions as the world debates a female version of 007.</strong><br /> <!--break--><br /> The actress Gillian Anderson has made it known in an unsubtle manner that she desires to become the next person to play the fictitious British secret agent 007. Besides political correctness which demands our agreement, a woman can be just as deadly as a male spy. Myth and history both bear this out. And speaking of history, if men could play women in Shakespeare’s productions at the Globe in medieval England, it’s not asking too much of the 21st century. What would Ian Fleming make of all this, apart from turn in his grave? The creators of a female version of 007 will have to contend with a few difficulties in creating the character. James Bond was born in a man’s world. In 1953, the world had grown weary of war. </p> <p>The Savile Row-dressed superspy jet-setting to exotic locales, sipping only the best drinks, smoking custom-made cigarettes (Virginia Slims for her?) and bedding beautiful women was a welcome reprieve, to Britain especially where the rationing of World War II was almost at its end. The reader lived dangerously through the character and exulted in his exploits. This is a different time and the world has changed. As far as the character’s story goes, what would the female lead be — James Bond’s twin sister... his new wife? And what about her code name with the double-O prefix? What would be her signature drink and her preferred weapon? Who would she battle, and how? Who would she bed — tough guys or himbos? And what would it be like to hear a villain saying, “Good-bye, Ms Bond (or Mrs)”? Then there is a very real problem — Hollywood pay scales. Much has been said about unequal pay for male and female leads in tinsel town, including by some of the best-known actresses. The actor playing Bond has always commanded a premium. Will studio bosses match the pay? If they don’t, there will be backlash if one goes by the great support Gillian Anderson’s comment has drawn from women. Then there will of course be an effect on writing copy. Journalists will have to substitute words like “suave” with words from the lexicon for female spies or coin new ones to avoid clichés. </p> <p>Studio executives who might after all think a female Bond is a good idea will find encouragement in the fact that for the first time in its 213-year history a woman master tailor has opened shop on London’s Savile Row.</p> Hollywood Suneel Sinha Tue, 31 May 2016 00:00:00 +0530 500482 at http://www.asianage.com Chris Evans jokes about Jeremy Clarkson http://www.asianage.com/hollywood/chris-evans-jokes-about-jeremy-clarkson-155 <div class="all-attached-images"><div style="width: 430px" class="image-attach-body"><a href="/chris-evans-154"><img src="http://www.asianage.com/sites/default/files/images/Chris Evans.jpg" alt="Chris Evans" title="Chris Evans" class="image image-content_image " width="430" height="287" /></a><p class="caption">Chris Evans</p></div> </div><p>Chris Evans had a dig at Jeremy Clarkson in the new Top Gear episode – but angry fans loyal to Clarkson called the show 'Flop Gear' and called Evans 'cringe' and a 'poor man's Clarkson'. They also said Evans was 'shouty', had 'no banter' and also called his co-host Matt LeBlanc 'wooden'.</p> <p>Clarkson was earlier fired for punching producer of the show Oisin Tymon and for calling him a 'lazy Irish c***' because he couldn't order a steak after a long day of filming in March last year. And now, Evans and Matt LeBlanc started the show; LeBlanc being the first non-British host in the programme's 39-year history.</p> <p>Since Evans and LeBlanc took over, the BBC show has suffered a series of setbacks, putting the series in jeopardy, reported dailymail.co.uk.</p> <p>Clarkson who is now working on a new show, stayed silent on Twitter. But, his daughter Emily tweeted: “Nope. Not even a little bit convinced.”</p> Hollywood Agencies Mon, 30 May 2016 00:00:00 +0530 500155 at http://www.asianage.com Game of Thrones: It’s all in the Family http://www.asianage.com/hollywood/game-thrones-it-s-all-family-151 <div class="all-attached-images"><div style="width: 430px" class="image-attach-body"><a href="/arya-stark-copyjpg-150"><img src="http://www.asianage.com/sites/default/files/images/ARYA STARK copy.jpg" alt="ARYA STARK copy.jpg" title="ARYA STARK copy.jpg" class="image image-content_image " width="430" height="287" /></a></div> </div><p>It’s almost always hard to live up to an intense episode with the next one and Game of Thrones’ latest offering, Blood of My Blood, suffers from the same issue. Despite being action packed, the absence of Ramsay Bolton, Tyrion, and Jon-Sansa makes the episode a tad languorous.</p> <p>Up in the north, after leaving Hodor behind to control the wights, Meera is left in charge of Bran, who is still having his visions. There is no doubt any more that Bran has turned into the Three-Eyed Raven, as confirmed by an old character who makes a surprise entry. This information, added to Bran’s visions seem to confirm theories about Westeros’ past as well as the tear in the fabric of time Bran is able to look through. </p> <p>Keeping in line with the theme of familial ties this episode, we’re introduced to the Tarly family at Horn Hill. As is wont to happen at most dinners with estranged families, Sam and Gilly share an uncomfortable dinner with his parents, inadvertently strengthening ties between the new couple. </p> <p>Another family in trouble are the Lannisters in King’s Landing, who seem to be having trouble keeping their last living incestuous child in control. The story in the capital city has been as interesting as a dog chasing its tail, and there’s nothing more painful than a promise of action unfulfilled. You almost don’t want to believe Cersei’s vow to Jaime that they’ll take vengeance together, even as he’s banished by Tommen to take over Riverrun.</p> <p>In a rather dull episode, it is Arya who stands out by listening to her conscience and disregarding Jaqen H’ghar’s training. She seems to be embracing her identity as a Stark once again — the scene gloriously defined when she digs up he sword Needle. Hopefully, it’s a face-off with the Waif next, where Arya will finally be a strong force, after weeks of getting beaten up mercilessly.</p> <p>In the last episode, Euron Greyjoy of the Iron Islands promised his people that he wanted to have Daenerys, one way or another. Danny, on her part, is promising to take her Khalasar across the seas on ships, hinting at the two strong forces getting into a battle by the series finale. While Danny manages to find her dragon Drogon and tries to fortify her position as the leader of her army, quite like the episode, her speech is well intentioned but misplaced.</p> <p>Almost like the calm before the storm, Blood of My Blood, seems to look like the filler episode before we plunge head-on into the action leading up to season 6’s finale. While smoothly pushing the storyline forward, the episode has teased viewers enough to expect more visions and a large combat.</p> Hollywood Nishtha Kanal Mon, 30 May 2016 00:00:00 +0530 500151 at http://www.asianage.com Chris Brown sued for stealing a cap! http://www.asianage.com/hollywood/chris-brown-sued-stealing-cap-145 <div class="all-attached-images"><div style="width: 430px" class="image-attach-body"><a href="/chris-brown-144"><img src="http://www.asianage.com/sites/default/files/images/Chris Brown.jpg" alt="Chris Brown" title="Chris Brown" class="image image-content_image " width="430" height="287" /></a><p class="caption">Chris Brown</p></div> </div><p>Chris Brown was sued for busting a fan’s cap at a concert.

The actress had played the role of a singer in the musical romantic comedy that was released in the year 2013. He also slammed the actress for having a big entourage and that he could not connect with and called her 'disenchanted'. The filmmaker also made comments about her modelling and said that he would never work with a ‘supermodel’ again. But Keira is primarily an actress and she has only modeled for Chanel in the recent times. Carney did stop with that, he went on saying, “Keira's thing is to hide who you are and I don't think you can be an actor and do that. I like to work with curious, proper film actors as opposed to movie stars. I don't want to rubbish Keira, but you know it's hard being a film actor and it requires a certain level of honesty and self-analysis that I don't think she's ready for yet and I certainly don’t think she was ready for on that film,” reported dailymail.co.uk. </p> Hollywood Agencies Mon, 30 May 2016 00:00:00 +0530 500140 at http://www.asianage.com Madonna makes a dig at BET http://www.asianage.com/hollywood/madonna-makes-dig-bet-138 <div class="all-attached-images"><div style="width: 430px" class="image-attach-body"><a href="/madonna-137"><img src="http://www.asianage.com/sites/default/files/images/madonna-blue-28-08-2013.jpg" alt="Madonna" title="Madonna" class="image image-content_image " width="430" height="261" /></a><p class="caption">Madonna</p></div> </div><p>Madonna took to Instagram to fire back at BET Awards for their controversial Tweets in regards to her Prince tribute at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.
