Kate Winslet Covers 'Glamour' April 2011
Kate Winslet rocks an Herve Leger by Max Azria dress paired with Van Cleef & Arpels earrings on the cover of Glamour magazine’s April 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (March 8).
Here’s what the 35-year-old Mildred Pierce actress had to share:
On weight struggles when she was younger: “I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me - and it was such a backhanded compliment - they would say, ‘You’ve got such a beautiful face,’ in the way of, like, ‘Oh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.’ ”
On whether she’s had plastic surgery or wants to change anything about her body: “No, I have never tried any of that stuff…I don’t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else’s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.”
On what it was like to win the Oscar: “I was the kid who never won the races. I never jumped the highest. I wasn’t on the list of the high-achieving. That wasn’t me, so winning the Oscar was like winning all the prizes in one single night that I never won as a kid. For me, it was an internal-fist-pumping moment of yes.”
On if her ambition has changed since winning an Oscar: “I have just wanted to be an actress. That’s always been my goal. I didn’t want to be famous. I wanted to play incredibly challenging, multifaceted characters. Because we are all a puzzle.”
On the difficulties of raising kids: “The challenge is making sure that they’re never treated different just because I sometimes am. I always want them to be regular kids who are grateful and respectful of other human beings. I want them to know that when we fly first-class, that they are lucky. The highest compliment I could ever receive about my kids - and I can say that this does happen frequently - is when the in-flight crew say to me, ‘Your children are wonderful. They are so well-behaved.’ Every time I am told that, I could weep.”

No Plans for "The A-Team" Sequel
Posted: March 1st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
The A-Team" cost $110 million to make, but grossed only $77 million domestically. The film ended up grossing another $99 million internationally, but that wasn't enough for 20th Century Fox to move forward with a sequel.
Then came word that if "The A-Team" performs well on Blu-ray/DVD, then a sequel may happen. Now that it has been a few months after the release, DigitalSpy caught up with Liam Neeson to get an update.
"There's nothing planned at the minute, but the studios certainly aren't saying no," the actor explained. "I personally would love to get on the horse again with Bradley and Sharlto and Rampage - we all would. But it's a question of dollars and cents."
He continued: "I thought it was a really good movie, and thought it would've done much, much better at the box office in America, but the studio released it the day after the World Cup started, and I think that probably affected the overall performance of the film."
Second Trailer For Kate Hudson Rom-Com Something Borrowed

Everyone quickly grab their thinking caps, it's time for a pop quiz (don't worry, you won't graded and it's only one question). Ready? Here it is: when was the last time that Kate Hudson made a film that was given overwhelmingly positive reviews? If you answered 2000's Almost Famous then you are right on the money. In the eleven years since, Hudson hasn't made a film that has received a fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Does this mean that Something Borrowed is absolutely guaranteed to be terrible? Absolutely not. But the look of the new trailer isn't helping any.
Apple has posted the second look at the rom-com, which appears to be as cookie-cutter as they come. In the movie Ginnifer Goodwin plays a young woman who misses out on her chance to be with the man of her dreams (Colin Egglesfield) and watches him become involved with her best friend (Hudson). But as Egglesfield and Hudson are about to get married Goodwin makes out with him and everything goes nuts.
Check out the trailer below or in HD over on Apple.
47 Ronin Gets A Start Date, Four New Japanese Cast Members

After spending so many years watching Keanu Reeves play the ass-kicking Jesus figure, he's somewhat fallen off the map. The actor's last major release was The Day The Earth Stood Still back in 2008, and while he has done projects since, they haven't been anywhere near the same scale. Lucky for us he'll be making his comeback with 47 Ronin and now the film not only has a production schedule, but Reeves has some new co-stars.
Universal has sent out a press release announcing that the new film, directed by Carl Erik Rinsch, is officially scheduled to begin production on March 14. Also, in addition to the previously announced Reeves, the cast has added Japanese actors Hiroyuki San, Kou Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano and Rinko Kikuchi. Based on a script by Chris Morgan and Hossein Amini, the film tells the story of an outcast who joins a group of warriors called the 47 Ronin who seek vengeance against the man who killed their master.
The release also came with an image of the cast and the director, which you can see below (click on it to see the photo in high-res). From right to left there is Rinko Kikuchi, Tadanobu Asano, Hiroyuki Sanada, Keanu Reeves, Kou Shibasaki, and Carl Rinsch. The film is set to be released on November 21, 2012.
