Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Action, Comedy, Prime Time, Gossip, Rumors,

Sandra BullockSandra Bullock is planning a TV version of Miss Congeniality.

The Heat actress reportedly wants to produce a comedic spin-off of her hit 2000 movie, in which she played FBI agent Gracie Hart, who went undercover at a beauty pageant, and is confident it would be a success.

"Sandra is planning on producing a comedic TV version of her smash movie series Miss Congeniality that's being described as Bridesmaids Meets 24. Sandra loved her Miss Congeniality FBI agent character Gracie Hart and the concept so much that for years she has continued to keep up friendships with FBI agents she met while researching it. Sandra loves that real FBI agents, particularly female ones, continue to respond to and write her letters about both Miss Congeniality and The Heat," a source said.

The 49-year-old actress - who produced The George Lopez show from 2002 to 2007 - is looking forward to casting the lead role and wants to introduce the character to a new audience.

Sandra Bullock Isn’t Missing a Man

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Dating, Features,

Sandra BullockSandra Bullock isn't "missing anything" by being single.

The Gravity star hasn't been seen publicly with a new paramour since her split from ex-husband Jesse James in 2010 but insists she is content being a doting mother to her three-year-old son, Louis.

"If [a relationship] should come along, great. But I feel like I'm not missing anything yet. Maybe one day I will. But my son is three years old, which is an amazing age. Four is an even better age. So if something happens, great, but if not, I've got plenty to do," she said.

The 49-year-old actress' life has been full of joy since she adopted Louis in 2010, but she admits she has a rather bittersweet view of the world based on her past life experiences. "Life is a series of disastrous moments. In between those moments, that's when you savour, savour, savour," she told the new issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.

Sandra Bullock Didn’t Think That She Deserved the Oscar

Sandra Bullock at the 2010 OscarsSandra Bullock didn't "feel worthy" of her Oscar.

The 49-year-old actress took home the Best Actress Academy Award in 2010 for her performance in The Blind Side, but when she admits, at the time, she didn't think her acting abilities deserved to be recognised over anyone else's.

Speaking at the premiere of her new movie Gravity at the Toronto International Film Festival, she said, "I didn't feel worthy of it when I got it, so I feel like, 'OK, I'm going to spend the rest of my life hopefully earning it, but having a really good time in the process as well.' ... I still haven't gotten around to having my moment with it yet. Maybe one day it will come. What it does do is make you realize how hard you have to work to earn it."

Remembering the night she won her Oscar, Sandra admits her mind was preoccupied with her son Louis, who she had just adopted as a baby and who was at home while she attended the glitzy ceremony in Los Angeles. The screen star - whose marriage ended in March 2010 when it was revealed her then-husband Jesse James had been cheating on her with several women - says having Louis stopped her from getting too carried away with her award win.

Sandra Bullock’s Stunt Worries

Sandra BullockSandra Bullock says becoming a mother has made her think twice about doing her own film stunts.

The Heat actress loves getting physical in her films, but isn't as tempted to put herself at risk since adopting her three-year-old son Louis. "I insist on doing my stunts all the time. But one thing that makes you reconsider doing your shot is having a child. You go, what if I should fall and die on this one? Would that be a smart move?" she said at the London premiere of her new film.

The 48-year-old star said there are some "dangerous" stunts in her new action-comedy film, in which she co-stars with Melissa McCarthy, but the actresses decided to leave them to the professionals. "We didn't have crazy stuff to do. There were a couple of dangerous things and Melissa and I were like, 'Let the stunt people do it,' because the explosives were falling on them. We went and had coffee while people risked their lives," she quipped.

Eddie Murphy Is Hollywood’s Most Over-Paid Actor

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Casting, Celebrity Gossip,

Eddie MurphyEddie Murphy has been named the most over-paid actor in Hollywood.

The 51-year-old actor - whose recent films Imagine That, A Thousand Words and Meet Dave were all labeled flops - is reportedly no longer popular at the box office despite being paid a huge amount of money to star in huge number of movies. According to Forbes magazine, for every $1 Eddie was paid for his last three movies, they returned an estimated average of $2.30.

His movie Tower Heist, which was released last year also failed to wow audiences and earned just over double its budget of $75 million.

Earlier this year, Eddie revealed he is in talks to make a Beverly Hills Cop TV show. One of the comedian and actor's best loved roles was as wise cracking detective Axel Foley in the three action/comedy films of the late 80s and he's working on bringing him back. "What I'm trying to do with Beverly Hills Cop now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley's son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I'd do the pilot, show up here and there," he said.

Sandra Bullock Sues Watch Company

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues,

Sandra Bullock at this year's OscarsSandra Bullock is suing a watch company.

The 47-year-old actress has filed a lawsuit in Santa Monica, California, against ToyWatch USA for using her name to promote a diamond-encrusted white-band watch - and she alleges it is being advertised as the same gadget she wore in her Oscar-winning role in 2009 movie The Blind Side.

Sandra also claims her publicity rights have been infringed as a result, and she's asking a California judge for financial compensation, as well as an injunction, according to The Hollywood Reporter. According to the lawsuit, which has been obtained by the website, Sandra "will not voluntarily appear in print or other media for a company or product unless she carefully selects and believes in the company and product, and unless the compensation she receives is commensurate with the value of the exploitation of her name, image, identity, and persona."

The brunette beauty also says her name has a substantial commercial value, and details her credits in the documents. But she is not said to be asserting any claims on false advertising under the Lanham Act or trademark infringement, as some stars have done in similar cases in the past.

At the Oscars: The 83rd Annual Academy Awards

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Award Shows, Prime Time, Specials, ABC, Gossip,

James Franco and Anne Hathaway Hosting 83rd Academy AwardsThe 83rd Academy Awards opened with a montage of the handful of movies they’ve decided to honor this year. As usual, all nominations came from a select, certain group of movies in the long list that came out during 2010. If you didn’t see The Social Network, The King’s Speech, The Fighter, Black Swan or True Grit, the Oscars wanted you to feel like they’re absolutely can’t-miss films.

But, the award show did offer more than the usual back-patting the actors give themselves once a year.

“Oh my gosh, you’re all real…this is all happening,” Anne Hathaway grinned from the stage as the smoke cleared. Her diamond-covered white gown was a perfect choice for the opening monologue, which was peppered with jokes about James Franco’s nomination and Hathaway’s lack of one (“it used to be, you get naked, you get nominated…not any more”).
