Amanda Seyfried was “terrified” when she discovered she was pregnant at the start of filming “Mank“, because she dreaded the thought of dealing with morning sickness while onset.

The “Mamma Mia!” star portrays real-life 1930s actress Marion Davies in the Herman J. Mankiewicz biopic, which chronicles his battle to complete the screenplay for Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane”.

However, Seyfried admits she had nothing to fear, because the excitement of working on the David Fincher passion project, opposite Gary Oldman as Mankiewicz, made her temporarily forget she was expecting.

Recalling her initial reaction to her positive pregnancy test, Seyfried said, “I was very surprised, and I was also terrified, because the anticipation of getting to set everyday, especially when you’re waking up at 3am, which is the earliest I’ve ever gotten up for a job, knowing that I’m gonna have morning sickness, knowing how horrible I feel physiologically, was just that was a challenge. Just getting mind over matter and getting to set (was difficult).”

“Of course, when I was on set, everything disappeared, we’d roll the cameras and I’d forget that I was pregnant for a second,” she added. “But it’s that challenging part at the beginning of a pregnancy that I thought was really gonna ruin my experience, but it was even better because I had this little man in me.”

Filming was completed in early February 2020 and she gave birth to a son, her second child with husband Thomas Sadoski, in September.

Her performance in “Mank”, which was released in November, has since won her critical acclaim, as well as a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Lil Uzi Vert Gets a Taste of Rock Through Blink-182 Collaboration

Lil Uzi Vert Gets a Taste of Rock Through Blink-182 Collaboration

Teasing about a song off his band’s upcoming album, drummer Travis Barker claims that the joint project with the ‘You Was Right’ rapper is ‘more of a punk kind of like reggae-feeling song.’

AceShowbiz
Rapper Lil Uzi Vert is stepping into the world of rock by recording a new track with Blink-182.

The band’s drummer, Travis Barker, has revealed the group has recruited Pharrell Williams to produce a song on their upcoming album, and it features a guest verse from Uzi.

“There’s a song with Uzi that’s really, really cool that we did with Pharrell,” he told Spotify’s “Rock This with Allison Hagendorf” podcast.

“I mean, it’s not like Blink’s making a rap song or anything. It’s like bringing Uzi over to our world. So it’s more of a punk kind of like reggae-feeling song.”

“I don’t think Blink will ever be anything but a pop-punk band,” Barker added. “That’s who we are, and I feel like our fans have journeyed with us when we’ve done songs like ‘Miss You’ or ballads like ‘Adam’s Song’.”

Uzi isn’t the first rapper Blink-182 have worked with – they previously collaborated and toured with Lil Wayne, while Barker has worked with hip-hop star Trippie Redd, executive producing his new project “NEON SHARK vs. Pegasus”.

The new Blink-182 album, the follow-up to 2019’s “Nine”, will also include a tune with singer Grimes, which Barker describes as “really, really cool”.

The rockers are currently working to complete the project, ahead of a release later this year (2021).

Dee Snider Brands Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Committee ‘Arrogant Elitist A**holes’

Dee Snider Brands Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Committee 'Arrogant Elitist A**holes'
Instagram

The lead singer of heavy metal band Twisted Sister slams the Rock Hall bosses for ‘looking down on metal and other bands that sell millions because we’re not their definition of cool.’

AceShowbiz
Twisted Sister star Dee Snider has slammed the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s “elitist” voting officials, claiming they are overlooking heavy rock artists.

The singer and radio personality has taken aim at Rock Hall bosses via Twitter, insisting they ignore what fans want because they don’t think their picks for induction are “cool” enough.

“The RnR Hall committee members are arrogant elitist a**holes who look down on metal and other bands that sell millions because we’re not their definition of cool,” Snider wrote. “The fan vote is their ‘throwing a bone’ to the peasants. I want to say FU, but I want them to have to deal with us!”

Dee Snider's Twitter Post 01

Dee Snider slammed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame committee members.

Responding to a fan, who suggested the Hall of Fame “caters to the masses,” Dee raged, “If they were catering to the masses, they would have the biggest-selling bands. Corporate rock bands that sell tens of millions are ignored because they aren’t ‘cool.’ ”

Dee Snider's Twitter Post 02

Dee Snider responded to fan suggestion that the Hall of Fame ‘caters to the masses.’

Dee went on claiming that the inductees are largely decided by magazine magnate Jann Wenner, who co-founded Rolling Stone. “(Wenner) has been the puppet master since day one,” he snarkily remarked. “If it ain’t in Rolling Stone it is hard-pressed to get into the Hall of Fame!”

This year’s potential inductees include Iron Maiden, whose singer Bruce Dickinson has often hammered the Hall of Fame, calling it a “mausoleum” that is run by “a bunch of sanctimonious bloody Americans who wouldn’t know rock ‘n’ roll if it hit them in the face.”

He maintains he’ll reject the induction if he is offered it.

Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti currently leads the fan vote for induction in 2021, followed by Tina Turner and Foo Fighters.

The Take That frontman is uncovered to have encouraged the ‘Mysterious Girl’ hitmaker to get back in the studio after the two of them did one of the former’s virtual ‘Crooner Sessions’ gigs.

AceShowbiz
British pop star Gary Barlow has teamed up with Australian singer Peter Andre for a new project.

The “Mysterious Girl” hitmaker joined the Take That frontman during his online “Crooner Sessions” virtual gigs last year (2020), and Barlow not only encouraged his pal to start working on new material, but also suggested they collaborate in the studio.

Writing in his new! magazine column, the “All Night All Right” singer revealed, “I did a Q&A [question and answer session] on my YouTube channel and was asked what made me decide to get back in the studio and actually stick to it.”

“Randomly, I got the push from two people. One was [his son] Junior telling me to write something cool, current, and fresh.”

  See also…

“The other was Gary Barlow. Gary and I did one of his ‘Crooner Sessions’ last year in the first lockdown and afterwards I sent him songs I had written and he basically told me to get my bum back in the studio and release some music.”

“So now I’m working on two projects – one album that I plan to release soon, and another separate project with Gary. Watch this space!”

And Peter’s eldest son, 15-year-old Junior, whose mother is the star’s ex-wife and former glamour model Katie Price, has also been joining his dad at work.

He added, “Things are coming together in the studio and I’m working hard to get the album I want.”

“Junior has been in with me at weekends and he’s really enjoying the experience.”

Leslie Mann Couldn’t Remember Her Lines as She’s Sweaty Mess When Filming With Judi Dench

Leslie Mann Couldn't Remember Her Lines as She's Sweaty Mess When Filming With Judi Dench
IFC Films

The ‘Knocked Up’ actress recalls working with her acting hero on the set of their new movie ‘Blithe Spirit’ and admits she struggled to remember her lines due to her jittery.

AceShowbiz
Actress Leslie Mann was such a hot, sweaty mess when she worked with her hero Judi Dench, it took her two hours to “calm down” and film their scene together.

The “Knocked Up” star partnered with the British Oscar winner in the new film version of Noel Coward‘s play “Blithe Spirit“, and really lost the plot when she got up close and personal with the great Dame.

“I was terrified,” Leslie told America’s “Live with Kelly and Ryan“. “It’s Judi Dench and she’s, like, one of my heroes. The first time we worked together, I didn’t get a chance to really talk to her much but they just kind of put us on a bed together because I’m a ghost haunting her while she’s trying to sleep…”

“I was sweating and nervous and I couldn’t remember my lines. It took me about two hours to calm down and be able to film the scene with her.”

Even worse, she had no idea how to address the Dame.

“I didn’t know what to call her,” she added. “It didn’t feel right calling her Dame Judi or Mrs. Dench. I didn’t know how to refer to her.”

But Judi Dench helped Leslie Mann calm her nerves. “I think she knew I was nervous, I was probably sweating or something, and she went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and she set me at ease,” she said a previous interview.

Aside from struggling with her jittery when sharing scene with the Dame, the actress enjoyed most of the filming. She especially relished wearing the period outfits. “It was exciting to learn something new and a new way of doing things. All the costumes were so much fun, incredible to wear something other than what my characters would normally wear like jeans or t-shirts,” she said.

The 45-year-old former Miss USA runner-up, who shares two children with the Blink-182 drummer, additionally claims that he ‘can handle that Kardashian drama.’

AceShowbiz
Shanna Moakler has finally weighed in on her ex-husband Travis Barker‘s romance with Kourtney Kardashian. Just days after she appeared to be dissing the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star, the former Miss USA runner-up insisted that she is “happy” for the new couple.

“He’s my friend and co-parent, and I want him to be happy,” the 45-year-old told Page Six on Thursday, February 18. “And if being with her makes him happy, and she’s happy, I’m happy for both of them, honestly…” She added, “He can handle that Kardashian drama.”

Shanna offered her two cents when she was picking up her boyfriend, Matthew Rondeau, at Los Angeles International Airport. In a clip obtained by the outlet, she gushed that she and her 28-year-old beau are “doing great.” She additionally raved, “I’m excited to have him back.”

In one of several pictures shared by the publication, the model/actress was seen kissing her partner with their masks on. For the airport outing, she rocked a black tight dress, a denim jacket and black sneakers, while her companion donned a black leather jacket, jeans and brown shoes.

The outing came shortly after Shanna was caught liking a shady comment about Travis and Kourtney’s confirmed romance. “Shhhhiiiii that broad don’t got nothin’ on you. Travis downgraded big time,” so read the remark on her Instagram post.

Shanna tied the knot with Travis in 2004. They split in 2006 before finalizing their divorce two years later. Together, they share two children, 17-year-old son Landon and 15-year-old daughter Alabama. When they were still together, the former couple reportedly used to be close with Kourtney.

However, some others doubted her as one questioned, “Chile did he tell you that or are you just assuming?” Someone also said, “He care for her deeply but she wasn’t the love of his life . All this s**t on here be cap.”

Prior to this, Asian defended herself for referring to herself as “Queen Von” despite having reportedly broken up with the Chicago rapper before he died. “I use to rock shirts with Von name on it I use to wear his clothes I use to bang his set I talked like him since day1 been rapping like him he I been ‘queen von/ granddaughter,’ ” she tweeted on January 14. “I been posting this man everything I’m doing now I BEEN DID WHILE HE WAS HERE don’t hate I’m blessed.”

Despite the tense situation between the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star and the ‘Jesus Is King’ musician, a source assures that the rapper can see their kids ‘when he wants.’

AceShowbiz
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s marriage may come to an end soon, but the pair reportedly will keep putting their kids as the top priority. According to a new report, the “Gold Digger” spitter is still an active presence in their four kids’ lives despite no longer on speaking terms with the TV star.

“He still wants to play a huge role in their lives and Kim would never discourage that,” a source reveals to E! News of the “Jesus Is King” musician. Meanwhile, another source claims that the rapper has moved out of the minimalist home.

“He is no longer living at the house with Kim and the kids,” the second insider spills. Kanye allegedly even goes as far as meeting their kids, North West, Saint West, Chicago West and Psalm West, elsewhere when he sees them. Despite the tense situation between Kim and Kanye, the source assures that the “Stronger” rapper can see them “when he wants.”

As for Kim, the SKIMS founder is said to be “moving on and is having a lot of fun at this stage in her life.” The source even shares that the 40-year-old beauty “already feels like she is divorced,” adding that they “are at a standstill currently and neither of them are pushing” to officially announce their split. “At this point in time, there is no rush for the paperwork to be finalized,” says the first source.

Prior to this, it was reported that Kim “has had all of her and Kanye’s financials and properties ready to be split.” Noting that “it’s a very fair deal for everyone,” the source claimed that the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star “has all of her assets and financials ready for when she decides to file officially. Friends thought she was going to file in September, but she’s holding out. That does not mean that everything behind the scenes is already done.”

While neither the SKIMS founder nor the musician has commented on the reports, their alleged marital problem reportedly will be featured in upcoming 20th and final season of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. “The Kardashians intend to go out with a bang. They’ve filmed Kim discussing her marriage problems,” said an insider earlier this year. The rapper, however, reportedly “wasn’t thrilled” about the idea.
