You'll Want to Try Jessie J's Secret Talent For Yourself

21 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

During her visit to The Graham Norton Show last week, Jessie J revealed a very strange talent: she can make it sound like she's been trapped in a box by speaking with her mouth closed. What's more, though, she can belt it out with her mouth closed, too! Jessie's been blowing us away lately with her cover of Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" and her performance in "Bang Bang" with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, but seeing her do the same with her lips pressed together really takes it to another level. Don't believe us? Watch the video above and just try not to wish for a whole "inside the box" album. »

21 January 2015 10:43 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

19 January 2015 10:06 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jessie J has some party tricks up her sleeve!

The British singer appeared on The Graham Norton Show on Jan. 16 and brought her hidden talent with her. Her lips don't need to be open for her to sing.

She explains that she found her secret talent as a child while going on auditions and was asked what she could do.

She says, "I discovered when I was little that I could pretend I was in a box." It was in this box that the closed mouth talking began and that turned into singing.

News: Jessie J and Demi Lovato Perform 'Bang Bang' Together

While she sang "Bang Bang" impressively with her mouth closed, she also talks about what it's like to sing the same song over and over.

"I just did the Jingle Ball tour across the whole of America, and the reaction to 'Bang Bang' was just so overwhelming every show."

Here's Why Judi Dench Put Weinstein on Her Butt

19 January 2015 8:55 AM, PST | newser.com | See recent newser news »

There's a longstanding Hollywood rumor that Judi Dench has Harvey Weinstein's name tattooed on her butt—and Weinstein himself recently revealed to BBC's The Graham Norton Show that the rumor is basically true. As the Hollywood Reporter notes, Dench stuck to television and stage roles for quite some time, until Weinstein persuaded her to take on her first big-screen role, as Queen Victoria in 1997's Mrs. Brown . She was nominated for an Oscar, and then got four more Academy Award nods as she continued to work in the movies with Weinstein. Feeling she owed her film career to him, Dench »

Judi Dench Has Harvey Weinstein’s Name Tattooed on Her Ass

17 January 2015 10:46 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Dame Judi Dench was mostly working in British television before kingmaker Harvey Weinstein cast her in the lead role of Queen Victoria in Mrs. Brown, for which she earned the first of seven Oscar nominations. How could she thank Weinstein, the man who had everything? Well, Dench got him the best gift she could think of: his name on her ass. Specifically, she got "Jd Loves Hw" tattooed. Weinstein relayed a delightful story of when she first showed the tattoo to him at the Four Seasons Grill on The Graham Norton Show. "What can you say to see Judi Dench's name stenciled on your ass?" Weinstein mused. And he's not the only one she has shown it to publicly: Dame Dench also showed the tattoo off to Oprah Winfrey at the BAFTAs last year. »

16 January 2015 3:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Harvey Weinstein has admitted that Dame Judi Dench dropped her trousers in front of him to show off a tattoo on her bum.

Following her Oscar nomination for Mrs Brown in 1998, Dench reportedly dedicated a tattoo to the producer, who had worked with her on a number of her nominated performances.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Weinstein said: "After she received her Oscar [nomination] for Mrs Brown she took me out to dinner and said, 'I can't thank you enough, I've got a surprise for you. I didn't know what to get you, the guy that has everything.'

"She then dropped her trousers and revealed a tattoo on her bum that read 'Jd loves Hw'. I didn't know what to do or what to say!"

Speaking in 2009, Weinstein said that the tattoo wasn't permanent and could easily be washed off.

Broadchurch stars: 'We haven't heard anything about a third series'

16 January 2015 2:49 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Broadchurch stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman have spoken about the possibility of a third series.

The pair said that they have no knowledge of plans for another series of the ITV drama, which returned to screens earlier this month.

Told by Graham Norton that a third series had been announced by ITV, they replied: "Has it? Not to us!"

Norton also took the opportunity to ask if "sexual tension" between Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller will continue as the show progresses.

"You think? I haven't seen that," Colman said, before Tennant added: "I don't think that is obvious."

Tennant also spoke of the difficulty the cast had filming the latest series in Dorset due to the show's high profile.

"It was tricky because people knew what they were looking for this time and we attract a certain amount of attention.

The Shocking Reason Meryl Streep Wasn't Cast In King Kong

12 January 2015 8:35 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Certainly one of the most negative aspects of the film industry is its inherent superficiality, and there are few things worse in casting than when looks are considered more valuable than acting talent. Sadly, this is something that actors deal with on a regular basis, and that includes some of the biggest stars in the world. For example, back in the 1970s Meryl Streep missed out on the lead female role in John Guillermin.s King Kong remake because one of the producers deemed her too ugly for the part. This is a rather shocking story in light of all the critical acclaim that Streep has gone on to earn in her career since the 1970s, but it.s true, and was recently revealed by the actress while visiting The Graham Norton Show as a guest. The subject of horror show auditions came up in conversation, and the Academy Award »

Meryl Streep Was Told She Was Too Ugly for 'King Kong'

10 January 2015 10:14 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Meryl Streep has been nominated for 18 Academy Awards and 29 Golden Globes, including one for Into the Woods this Sunday, but she hasn't always been the actress of choice.

On The Graham Norton Show on Jan. 9, the Into the Woods star recalled a time when she auditioned for the 1976 film King Kong with producer Dino De Laurentiis. His son had seen a then-unknown Meryl in a play and brought her in to audition for the role of Dwan.

Since Streep, 65, knew Italian, she understood Dino's words as he asked his son, “Why do you bring me this ugly thing?”

She then responded in Italian, saying, "I’m sorry I’m not beautiful enough to be in King Kong.”

Streep can laugh about it now, but as Norton says, "young actors should take solace" knowing that there was a time where even a legendary actress had a bad audition.

Meryl Streep Was ‘Not Beautiful Enough’ for King Kong

10 January 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

One is not born Meryl Streep; one becomes her. In the past, Streep has talked about how she used to hate her nose and worry about her weight when she was young — all things she learned not to care about as she got older. She went on The Graham Norton Show to talk about some of her failed auditions. One of those was for the 1976 remake of King Kong with producer Dino De Laurentiis. But when De Laurentiis saw her he commented that she was ugly ("Che brutta"). Of course, Streep spoke Italian — is there anything she can't do? — and responded with aplomb. »

“I like to uni. Do you like to uni?” McAvoy asked Ruffalo, who is a learned unicycle rider.

James McAvoy admits he lied about car accident to get out of audition

9 January 2015 4:27 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James McAvoy has admitted that he faked crying and lied about a nasty car accident in order to get out of an audition.

The X-Men actor did not name the movie part he was trying out for, but said he had to learn how to play several songs on the guitar and was massively unprepared for it.

Appearing on The Graham Norton Show, he told host Norton: "My agent suggested something that she thought was going to be great for me. I needed to learn songs and to play the guitar.

"I said, 'No problem', but of course the day came and I was rubbish at all of that and I stood in front of them with my heart in my mouth and thought, 'I've got to get out of this', so I started to cry and through my tears said, 'I've just had a phone call. My mate has been knocked down, »
