Ryan Gosling wasn't at Cannes to hear the boos his new film Only God Forgives received. That's because he's in Detroit, directing How to Catch a Monster, which Saiorse Ronan (Atonement, The Lovely Bones) says is going well. "It's different working with an actor as a director," says Ronan, who will appear in Gosling's directorial debut alongside Christina Hendricks, Doctor Who's Matt Smith, and the Gos's girlfriend, Eva Mendes. "So much of his approach is character-based, and he has a lot of respect for how we feel about them. If there's something we don't feel like doing, like, if my character doesn't feel like she would get in a car, and I tell him that, he'll rewrite the scene later. He's just so relaxed and very, very creative." Ronan says How to Catch a Monster is Gosling's "baby," too. Awww. »

"I could have ended up like Lindsay Lohan," Ronan told Time Out London.
"You're being offered all these different temptations... and everyone is either telling you how great you are or talking about you behind your back."
She added: "Lindsay Lohan was the It girl from, like, 14. That's a lot of pressure.
"If you don't have your mam telling you, 'Remember, you're still my daughter', you're going to go off the rails."
Of being described as 'ethereal', Ronan said: "I'm not like that, you know. I'm not ethereal. I wanted to play different girls.
"It sounds kind of simple and a bit silly, but I wanted to play someone who says 'f**k'. »

It’s recently been suggested Joss Whedon will incorporate the brother and sister superhero team of The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in joining his Avengers initiative for the sequel due 2015. While we expect to see the likes of Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner and the God Of Thunder return, new blood is surely going to be essential in the squad for next adventure and the aforementioned siblings could be just the job in helping bring down whatever intergalactic menace Whedon has down in the script (possibly Thanos?).
While it’s still a couple of years away from the big-screen, Marvel Studios have eyed two candidates to fill those roles and we have word on one of those names. Rising Irish Oscar-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan is rumoured to be their favourite for the female role. It’s a bold move to include these characters considering their link to another Marvel »

Evidently, Stanley Tucci's made himself some sort of sordid life goal to dip his little piggies into every type of Hollywood water on the planet, polluted or not, because he has reportedly now signed on for Michael Bay's "Transformers 4."
Confused? Yeah. Us too.
ComingSoon.net reports that at last night's Las Vegas CinemaCon, Michael Bay showed up for Paramount Pictures' presentation and announced that he'd nabbed another one for his first Shia LeBeouf-less installment to the Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots "Transformers" series, which already features Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz.
That notable newcomer'd be the Tucci himself, and Bay apparently teased that another young actor would be announced soon, too.
Stanley Tucci, who earned an Oscar nom for his work in "The Lovely Bones," is no stranger to splashy, explodey, CGI-heavy franchise flicks (see also, "Jack the Giant Slayer," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters »

Until last week, I thought Saoirse Ronan's name was pronounced "Swar-reese Ronan," to the point that, when I would mention to anyone that I was in the process of creating this article, I would say with a vaguely subtle air of sanctimony, "It's Hollywood's unpronounceable names — like that girl from 'The Lovely Bones,' Swar-reese Ronan."
Later, I would find out that I was very wrong. Like, Neville Chamberlain wrong.
I hope you learn as much from watching the following 12 videos as I did from making them.

If you recognize Jake Abel, you might find yourself with the unconscious urge to punch him. The 25-year-old actor has been working in movies and TV for a decade, but with blond hair and good looks he's inevitably wound up playing the bully, in The Lovely Bones and Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (and the upcoming sequel) and the short-lived attempt at another sci-fi teen series, I Am Number Four. In another sci-fi tinged movie aimed at teens, though, Abel finally gets the chance to show his softer side, playing Ian O'Shea in The Host. As one of the few humans left alive after an alien species has colonized earth, Ian is as shocked as anyone when Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) arrives at humanity's last hideout while taken over by Wanderer, the alien Soul now living inside Melanie's body. But Ian's even more shocked when he starts to fall for »
