Stop right now. Thank you very much.
Right now, Emma Stone is technically promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – and not, as it turns out, a reunion of the U.K.’s best girl group. But this weekend, the star went on The Graham Norton Show, explained her love of the fab five once again, and had a major freak-out when she thought the gals might be in the building (they weren’t).
“I feel like I’ve been talking about the Spice Girls more on this press tour than I have about the movie,” Stone explained. She’s not wrong: »

If you didn't know by know by now, Emma Stone is a big fan of the Spice Girls. Like, really big. The actress joined her co-stars Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx to promote their upcoming movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, during a Friday appearance on BBC One's The Graham Norton Show. While there, Stone was once again asked about her fascination with the most popular girl group of all time. "I just feel like I've been talking more about the Spice Girls on this press tour than I have about the movie!" the 25-year-old actress said. (It all started when Mel B sent her a video message in Australia.) "I was a fiend. I was obsessed with the Spice Girls, and they taught me about girl power. I »
At the beginning of the below clip, Emma Stone remarks that she has no idea why she's been talking about the Spice Girls so much this press tour. The answer seems pretty obvious: (1) Her publicist told her to; (2) Talk-show producers know that if they do something Spice Girls–related, they'll get some good TV/radio from her reaction. On a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, Norton tried to get his own Emma Stone girl-power freak-out. It worked. Maybe the real question is, What is Baby Spice so busy doing that she can't just meet her movie-star superfan on TV already? »

After CBS announced that Stephen Colbert would take over as The Late Show host, the fun was watching the meltdowns on the right wing blogosphere. Rush Lumbaugh responded that CBS “declared war on the heartland of America” while Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro called Colbert’s faux pundit character “political blackface“.
Meanwhile, Colbert’s promotion raises new questions like what will replace The Colbert Report »

Russell Crowe might play the main character in a Bible-based film, but the Noah star is certainly no angel! On a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, Crowe playfully flirted up a storm with former Neighbours co-star Kylie Minogue. As Minogue, 45, and fellow guest Cameron Diaz, 41, discussed their love lives, Crowe, 50, interjected, making sure the ladies knew he, too, was single. And when Norton showed a picture of a wax figure depicting Minogue in a rather compromising position, Crowe piped in jokingly, "I have to say though, the [waxwork] of you kneeling down is kind of attractive. If they're not using that one anymore..." Diaz couldn't hide her shock at the actor's »

Finally, Cameron Diaz has clearly up her stance on pubic hair—and we know you were all waiting with bated breath. During an appearance on the The Graham Norton Show, which will air Friday evening, the 41-year-old actress addressed her previous headline-making remarks which appeared in The Body Book, the actress' first venture in publishing, in which she encouraged women to keep their their vaginas "fully dressed." "I would like to clear up what I said. I don't care what women do with it but we should be informed about how their bodies work," Diaz clarified. "It [pubic hair] is there for a reason and to laser it off is to lose it forever!" She then grabbed filming »

Even Christian Grey isn't perfect. Jamie Dornan recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show to discuss his highly anticipated film, Fifty Shades of Grey, and he ended up divulging his bizarre quirk. Apparently, Dornan never learned how to walk properly, and when he first began filming the TV series The Fall, the director called out his tiptoe style, asking if he was doing it to get into character. Clearly, Dornan had to find a new walk, but the one he demonstrates here is not an improvement. Watch from the beginning for a bonus clip of Aaron Paul's The Price Is Right past, or just skip to 2:48, when Dornan's part begins. »

Will Fifty Shades of Grey change Jamie Dornan's life? "I have no idea," the handsome Hollywood hunk said on The Graham Norton Show. (Yes, Jamie. The answer is yes.) The man chosen to portray Christian Grey from the popular erotica trilogy stopped by the BBC America series to talk all things Fifty, including what he thinks the aftermath will be once the adaptation hits theaters on Valentine's Day next year. "I mean, look, we're in a really powerful position that 90-plus million people have read the book so if like a third—I mean, a hundredth of those people—that's successful if they go see the film," he said. "It's a nice position to be in, but I have no idea what »
Jamie Dornan's role in Fifty Shades of Grey taught him a very important life lesson. And we're not talking about those scenes. The 31-year-old stopped by The Graham Norton Show and dished about what he learned when he was filming the erotic flick. "In terms of changing your life, it did change your life," Graham Norton said to the handsome thesp. "It did change your life. Physically." "Yes it did, I know what you mean, yes," the Northern Irish actor replied, as the audience laughed. "It isn't as creepy as it sounds," the late-night host added. Then it was explanation time for Dornan. "So basically, I've always had a »

Let's take a psychedelic trip back to the '70s, shall we? Naomi Campbell channeled her inner 1970s diva, donning a full Afro wig during her appearance on the British comedy talk show The Graham Norton Show, which was filmed Thursday and will air Friday. So while we have to wait until tonight to see the full interview with Naomi, we've still got a preview of her look in the meantime—which is pretty fabulous, we must admit. Clad in a sparkly black dress with a plunging neckline, the supermodel swapped out her typically pin-straight locks for something a bit more dramatic. Naomi will be on the second season of the modeling competition series, The Face, which airs on the Oxygen »

BBC America has given the green light to vehicle transformation series Mud, Sweat & Gears. The eight-episode series, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for BBC America and BBC Worldwide’s new Brit channel, will be hosted by Tom ‘Wookie’ Ford and Jonny Smith — two UK car journalists.

The corporation cannot expect to maintain its £3.5bn a year from the licence fee unless it collaborates with other leading players
BBC charter renewal is a sort of World Cup for the commentariat – it happens at regular intervals, is a festival of hot air for supporters and opposition alike, and comes to a sudden finale. Notwithstanding that, it's entirely healthy for public funding to be subject to the scrutiny it now is. And as digital technology continues to disrupt our heritage media, it's right that the purposes of the BBC should be challenged, refreshed and, where necessary, redefined.
The BBC represents a massive market and social intervention. Historically this has been justified by the delivery of three things: trusted and reliable news and information, substantial output of original programming and a sustained investment in creative talent. In this way the BBC has made a critical democratic, cultural and economic contribution »
