Emma Watson Fell Ill on ‘Noah’ Set

Emma Watson on the set of 'Noah'Emma Watson was forced to take method acting to whole other level while filming Noah.

In an article for Wonderland magazine - which the 23-year-old guest edited - Emma revealed that she became sick after drinking some dirty water on set, where director Darren Aronofsky banned plastic water bottles: "I was so tired one morning I picked up a mug from my trailer and drank some stagnant water that had been there for the duration. I was so ill... Having no water bottles on set at five in the morning, when you're exhausted and delirious, wasn't ideal."

When she told Aronofsky that she wasn't feeling well, the director instructed her to use it for her scene. "I turned round to the bus and was like: 'Is he joking?' and there was deadly silence," Emma recalled.

Fans will see whether or not Aronofsky's directing methods work when Noah hits theaters March 28.

Matt Smith in 'How to Catch a Monster'

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has ditched his bow tie, dapper suits, and tousled hair for Ryan Gosling.

The 30 year-old British actor was seen on set of Gosling's directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster. Likely trying to break out of his (much beloved) Doctor Who shell, Smith's character is a far cry from a Time Lord with his shaved head and outfits sans shirts (though I'm not complaining).

Matthew McConaugheyMatthew McConaughey has officially joined the likes of Christian Bale and Matt Damon, having shed 30 pounds (from his already svelte frame) for his role as Ron Woodroof in the upcoming film The Dallas Buyers Club.

Recently spotted at LAX, the star's gaunt look frightened onlookers.

"For me, it's more of a mental thing than a physical thing. I'll get down to the weight I need to get to. I'm on the way, and it's what I need to do for the job... It's a bit of a spiritual cleanse, mental cleanse. [I'm] drinking a lot of tea," he told Larry King in a recent interview.

McConaughey's character in the film plays an AIDS-ridden patient who cures himself with alternative medications from Mexico. Based on a true story, The Dallas Buyers Club also stars Jennifer Garner, who plays his doctor, and Jared Leto, in his first film role in four years. Directed by Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée, the film is expected to be shot in New Orleans.

Getting Into Character: Elizabeth Olsen on ‘Oldboy’ Set

Elizabeth Olsen on the set of 'Oldboy'

With her blonde hair, cherubic looks, and typically sunny disposition it was hard to believe that Elizabeth Olsen would be cast in such a dark film like the Oldboy remake. Well, lo and behold, the 23 year-old actress appears to be adjusting just fine as she slips into her role on set in New Orleans.

Sporting a barbed wire tattoo on her forearm and some darker tresses, Olsen will play Marie, a social worker who helps Josh Brolin's character figure out why he had been imprisoned for fifteen years without any explanation. The film, directed by Spike Lee, is based off both the Japanese manga and 2003 Korean film adaptation of the same name.

Daniel Day-Lewis Explains His Lincoln Voice

Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham LincolnDaniel Day-Lewis has been hailed as the World's Greatest Actor, but that still doesn't necessarily stop some folks from nitpicking his performances - most recently of which is the tone of voice he opted for with his potrayal of Abraham Lincoln.

"I still don't like the sound of Daniel Day Lewis's Lincoln voice... It's flat, undistinctive, unimpressive... It's hard to describe what I was looking to hear, but this isn't it. And I dearly love the voices that Lewis has given us over the years. The fault, of course, is [Steven] Spielberg's -- he didn't push hard enough, he let well enough alone," wrote Hollywood Elsewhere blogger Jeffrey Wells.

Wells isn't the only one to raise an eyebrow over Day-Lewis' decision for a high-pitched voice in Spielberg's Lincoln, which is perhaps what prompted the actor to defend his decision:
