There was no hiding Kate Middleton‘s baby bump during her April 24 appearance at the National Portrait Gallery! The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, who is due in July, looked stunning in a 50s-style blue Emilia Wickstead cocktail dress.
Kate kept her baby bump covered in the empire-waist dress, but her pregnant belly was especially noticeable when she turned to the side. She paired the elegant frock with a pair of grey suede pumps, accentuating her toned legs.
The neckline was also high enough to cover up her chest, but plunged in the back to reveal just enough skin. Her modest hemline also hit perfectly above the knee, which revealed her sexy stems. »

We like Tom Cruise. Yes, the man be crazy, but he's also an endlessly charming rogue and a damn fine actor. But wow, does he sometimes have to say stupid things in his movies.

Sci-fi thriller Oblivion has arrived in cinemas, and that means that audiences have a fresh sci-fi blockbuster to enjoy. Sometimes snubbed, misunderstood and casually dismissed to sulk in its own tech-interfaced ghetto, the genre has got a bit of a (micro)chip on its shoulder. It's therefore always nice to see original science fiction stories making waves on the movie scene and reaching wider cinema audiences.
Of course, the crucial draw of Oblivion for many isn't its vision of a future Earth ravaged by alien warfare, overseen by survivors who inhabit floating towns and »
Exclusive: Paradigm has secured some good clients of late as filmmakers have followed agents like Robert Bookman into the fold. Here’s a surprise: the agency has signed Roger Donaldson, director of such films as The Bank Job, The Recruit, Thirteen Days, No Way Out, and Cocktail. He also wrote and directed The World’s Fastest Indian. Donaldson was in play when his CAA agent, Martin Spencer, left to join Jeff Berg’s upstart agency Resolution. Everyone expected the filmmaker to follow, but he instead signed with recently minted Paradigm agent Ken Stovitz. Stovitz had been Donaldson’s agent until he left to join Will Smith and James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment, but clearly that relationship with Donaldson remained strong. »

After being taught the 'six steps' to making the perfect drink and receiving a round of applause for his efforts at the Guinness Gravity Bar, Cruise jested: "Now when do we get to drink it?"
Performing a toast to Ireland, the 50-year-old - who sported a pair of Top Gun-esque Aviators for the occasion - declared himself to be a fan of the beverage and received a certificate for his pint-pouring abilities.
Cruise later posed for photographers with the pint still in his hand, and can be seen taking sneaky sips throughout the rest of »
Tom Cruise has learnt how to pour the perfect pint of Guinness. The 'Oblivion' star was treated to a master class in pint pouring at the world famous Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, Ireland, on Wednesday (03.04.13) and admitted that despite playing a bar tender in the movie 'Cocktail' in 1988, he never realised the level of skill involved in creating the perfect drink. Asked by Guinness master Fergal Murray whether he had done anything like it before, the 50-year-old actor, who was in Dublin with his French co-star Olga Kurylenkoe for the premiere of their new thriller, replied: 'Well... I played a bartender, but I never poured Guinness!' After taking a drink from his pint, Tom raised his glass and »
Even Tom Cruise couldn't leave Dublin without pouring himself a glass of the country's famous brew. During his worldwide Oblivion media tour, the movie's leading man made a pit stop at Ireland's iconic Guinness Storehouse today. Along with costar (and former Bond girl) Olga Kurylenko, he was treated to a private tour of the brewery and got handsy with their famous beer toggles. After a quick session with a master brewer, the actor pulled himself a tall glass of the popular Irish stout.

"Millions of galaxies of hundreds of millions of stars, in a speck on one in a blink. That’s us, lost in space." — Vincent, Collateral
Though he's most widely known for his action movies — the Mission: Impossible movies, in particular — superstar actor Tom Cruise has also starred in a handful of sci-fi movies in his career, including War of the Worlds (2005), his highest grossing domestic release to date. After an eight-year hiatus from sci-fi, Cruise will return to the genre on April 19th in Oblivion, a post-apocalyptic epic from director Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) in which Cruise plays one of the last drone (read: clone) workers on an Earth that is all but abandoned following a devastating war with an alien race known as the Scavs.
In anticipation of Oblivion's imminent release, we thought this would be a great time to look back on Cruise's rather extensive filmography to determine, »

Type-casting is a double-edged sword for any actor; it can result in tremendous success, as it proves that they have convinced audiences – and more importantly, studio executives – that they can play a certain kind of role, be it a romantic lead, a dramatic character, or maybe an action hero.
Normally after one big hit, actors will get offers to play the same type of role in the future, though the danger is that without diversifying or demonstrating that they have more to offer, audiences will get tired of them – call it Michael Cera syndrome.
These 10 roles, however, allowed actors to break their previously established mould, and though they took advantage of it to varying degrees, it’s clear that each role demonstrated another facet of their talents, and that they have a lot more to offer than most will reasonably expect.
Here are 10 amazing roles that saved typecast actors…
