Ryan Gosling Reveals Unusual Habit in ‘Seduced and Abandoned’ Doc

Ryan Gosling on the set of 'How to Catch a Monster'Ryan Gosling used to shove movies down his pants. The Only God Forgives actor was so obsessed with cinema as a child that he would hide copies of his favorite flicks in his trousers when his mother tried to punish his bad behavior by taking them away.

Ryan made the frank confession in James Toback and Alec Baldwin's forthcoming movie-making documentary Seduced and Abandoned, which screened to positive reviews at the Cannes Film Festival this week. "I loved movies so much, sometimes, I'd shove them down the front of my pants. I liked the way they feel," he said in an interview.

The documentary - which was filmed at last year's Cannes festival in France - gives a warts-and-all insight into the process of getting movies made and follows the 30 Rock actor as he tries to schmooze producers, financiers, journalists and actors to get on board a proposed film production starring himself and Neve Campbell.

Beyonce Wants Documentary to Inspire Blue Ivy

BeyonceBeyonce hopes her new documentary will inspire her daughter.

The superstar decided to create her new tell-all HBO film Life is But a Dream to give her 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter - whom she has with husband Jay-Z - a source of strength and inspiration in the future and make her proud to see where she came from.

Speaking at the film's New York City premiere last night, she said, "I hope that she will see all of the beautiful times [and] all the tough times that led up to her being here. I'm hoping that... it can comfort her and inspire her in her life when she needs it."

While the 31-year-old singer believes it's important for every woman to retain an air of mystique, she felt the time was right to share her story with the world and celebrate the new stage in her life: "Mystique is very important... It doesn't matter if you're a celebrity - just as a woman - I think it's important. But, at the same time, I felt like it was time for me to share my story because I've been through so much and I have so much to celebrate, so much to share."

Beyonce Knowles to Make a Personal Documentary

Beyonce KnowlesBeyonce Knowles is to star in a documentary about her life and career.

The "Crazy In Love" singer is to direct, produce and appear in the film which will include concert footage, backstage scenes and interviews with her and her loved ones about her life. The documentary will focus on the release of her 2011 album 4, as well as her marriage to Jay-Z and the birth of the couple's daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012.

The former Destiny's Child star has been presenting different Hollywood studios with 20 minutes of footage in a bid to find the right distributor. Beyonce has had experience of directing in the past thanks to her MTV mini-documentary Beyonce: Year of 4 which showed her in the studio working on new tracks.

The 30-year-old R&B superstar is now set to follow in the footsteps of Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus with the fly-on-the-wall concert movie. The star teased fans on her official website in July with a cryptic message, "Leave Your Footprint On 19 August 2012," which could be linked to the documentary.

Katy Perry’s Revealing Film

Katy Perry

Katy Perry is more "revealing" than she's ever been in her new movie.
 The "E.T." hitmaker releases her 3-D concert film Katy Perry: Part Of Me in July and has promised the project - which combines concert footage with her everyday life, including intimate details of her split from husband Russell Brand - will show her fans who she really is.

"A lot of people have a lot of ideas about me, but this is a film that I made for myself, for my fans ... so that they can get the all-access pass. And I've never been this revealing," she said.

Joaquin Phoenix: P. Diddy, Others in on the Documentary Hoax

Joaquin Phoenix’s I’m Still Here is still making waves, and most movie reviewers are still scratching their heads. Phoenix scored plenty of huge headlines when he purportedly walked away from his acting career to pursue rap, but it was his David Letterman appearance that really got people talking.

Ben Stiller famously impersonated Phoenix at the Oscars, appearing on stage in a full beard to poke fun at Joaquin’s rugged look. But Phoenix says that Stiller, along with several others who appeared in the pseudo-documentary, was in on the joke.
