Sex scenes don’t come naturally to Kerry Washington.
The Scandal actress has confessed she finds it ”hard” to shoot intimate scenes between her screen alter ego Olivia Pope with her co-star Tony Goldwyn, who plays Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III, the married president of the Unites States, because she is being asked to do things she would normally only do with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.
”They’re hard to do,” Kerry said.
“Sex scenes are always awkward. You’re doing things that you’re supposed to do with only certain people in your life. Because this is not your real partner in life, doing that is awkward. And then doing it in a room full of people is awkward.’
“Particularly with a show like ours, where people are so invested in the chemistry, you just learn to be careful, because people’s real relationships in life are important. I so respect and admire his wife and him and their family, and he feels the same way about mine. And so you learn to be careful about how you say things.
“There’s a reason why you say, ‘Oh, they walk in this world in a certain way.’ Shoes have a big impact.
“Even in rehearsals at ‘Scandal’, oftentimes I’ll ask for my shoes. I’ll be standing around in my sweatpants and tank top and hoodie sweatshirt with Christian Dior or Gucci shoes, because I want to be able to walk and stand like Olivia…. How a person walks says a lot about who they are.”
Singer Adele still hasn’t told her songwriters whether their work has made it on her upcoming album.
Diane Warren — who has worked with Beyonce Knowles, Sir Elton John and Whitney Houston — insists she doesn’t know if the tracks she recorded with the singing sensation will make it on to Adele’s third studio album, which is to be released next year after being pushed back.
”I flew to London to work on new stuff with Adele last year,” Diane said.
”We did some great songs but I don’t know if they’ve made the record. I don’t think anybody does.”
”She has a mind of her own. Nobody rushes Adele or makes decisions for her, which is probably why she’s a great artist. She wants to get it right.
”She was singing her ass off when I was in the studio. Her voice was spectacular.”
Steve Carell wants to tread the boards of Broadway!
The actor says he’s love to appear in a musical.
“I did a bunch of musicals back on college, ‘Oklahoma’, ‘Cabaret’. I would love to do a musical some time,” he said.
“I can carry a tune, I don’t think I’m a great singer but I could fake it.”
And if he wasn’t an actor? ”I would be a teacher at a prep school, I can almost guarantee I would be teaching history and English and coaching a sport, perhaps hockey.,” he said.
Meanwhile, Steve has revealed he made barely any money from either of the ‘Anchorman’ movies but insists that was never his motivation for appearing in the films with Will Ferrell.
During the interview, Steve was asked whether ‘Anchorman’ or ‘The Office’ made him more money.
”A long running TV show like ‘The Office’, that would make more money,” he said.
“‘Anchorman’, especially the first one, I was a complete unknown and made very little money, the second one we just wanted to come back, it wasn’t about making money, it was just for the love of it. It was just fun to do, it was ridiculous and silly, just hanging out with those guys was a party.”
Harry Styles is SO OVER his relationship with Taylor Swift — and he hates the fact everyone still talks about it.
The One Direction star is annoyed that people are talking about his former relationship with the Love Story singer now that she has released another song about him.
Hollywood Life stays Harry feels the best way to put their relationship in the past is to get into a serious relationship with someone else.
“Harry keeps hearing people talk about him and Taylor and he hates it,” a source said.
“The guys from One Direction are making fun of him about it as well and it’s making him feel uncomfortable, so he can’t wait until he has a serious girlfriend. It won’t be easy, but Harry feels it will get all the talk about him getting back together with Taylor or liking Taylor out of people’s minds.
“Harry is over that relationship and wants everyone to know it! In his eyes, being in a relationship with another girl will do the trick.”
Sorry, ladies: Benedict Cumberbatch is about to take himself off the market.
Bachelor no more: Benedict Cumberbatch is reportedly planning to propose to girlfriend
The actor has sparked speculation he’s set to marry girlfriend Sophie Hunter — after he flew to Edinburgh last week to see her mother.
Benedict and Sophie have gone to great lengths to avoid being seen together in public since they first met in 2009, but broke cover recently to appear arm-in-arm at the wedding of the actor’s old school pal, James Rhodes.
Sophie is said to be close to her mother Anna after her parents divorced when she was a child. While the couple were in Edinburgh, I hear they toured the Royal Botanic Garden.
Jennifer Aniston just can’t seem to pin down her men.
At least that’s what her friends are thinking: When will this bitch be marrying Justin Theroux.
Well, according to new reports — probably NEVER.
Sources say Jen’s pal have “urged caution” over Justin — because the pair have been engaged since August 2012 and still haven’t walked down the aisle.
“Several of Jen’s friends, including Chelsea Handler and Demi Moore, are thought to have urged caution over Justin’s reluctance to carry out the wedding, pointing out his reputation as a huge commitment-phobe,” a source told British magazine Grazia.
“Even Justin’s own friends have joked that his line ‘we’re not on anyone else’s time frame,’ should be ‘we’re not on any time frame’.”
Justin recently admitted he felt a “hum of pressure” despite saying earlier this year that he and Jennifer had “hot feet” about getting hitched, as opposed to cold. His behavior reportedly echoes his attitude during his 14-year relationship with stylist Heidi Bivens, which ended in 2011.
“One moment Justin would be dropping hints to Heidi about ‘when we’re married’, before getting really vague and ultimately dismissing it as just a piece of paper,” the source continued.
“Justin seems hesitant to even discuss the kind of ceremony he’d like [with Jen]. Their recent trip to Bora Bora was a typical example – it seems Jen wanted the beautiful setting to inspire them to talk about romantic wedding locations, but it seems Justin has become a pro at deflecting her hints.”
“Most of Jen’s friends are marrying or having children around her, while she feels as if she’s treading water.”
The actress and reality star was rushed to the hospital amid fears she may have contracted the highly contagious Enterovirus, Mail Online reports.
Sources say Tori has been neglecting her health, refusing to take time off to have two much-needed surgeries. She is reportedly suffering from respiratory problems, and a horrible cough. Doctors feared it might even be a case of Enterovirus D68.
“Tori was not only admitted to the hospital, she was put under quarantine and neither Dean nor the children are allowed anywhere near her for fear she may have contracted the contagious non-polio Enterovirus,” said a source.
“She’s had a cough and low grade fever for more than a week now, but refused to see a doctor. She’s been filming her show, and she and Dean worked hard on a birthday bash last weekend for their daughter Hattie, so Tori wasn’t about to call off the party because she didn’t feel well.
“Tori has been feeling sick for at least a week. She was coughing and complained of being short – winded. She had a fever, but when it skyrocketed past 101 this weekend, Dean insisted she go to the Emergency Room where doctors quickly admitted her.
“Doctors are currently running tests. And they hope to have a diagnosis as soon as possible. But in the meantime, they have Tori quarantined and are not letting anyone see her, especially her four children, who would be highly susceptible to the virus.”
