Somehow a racy photo shoot featuring an exhibitionist loses a bit of its punch, but earlier this month Lady Gaga got wet and increasingly naked for the clothing brand Supreme, which was featured in the French magazine Purple. Yesterday Gaga left little to the imagination, prancing around the 37-degree NYC set of an HBO special in a leotard and fishnet tights.
While Justin Bieber got his hair cut yesterday, claiming he "wanted to change it up" and that the finished product was "kind of a mature look," Paramount is releasing a director's cut of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never this Friday that includes 40 minutes of new footage. Director Jon M. Chu said, "Justin's dedication to his fan base is unwavering and I was inspired as a filmmaker to attempt to provide them a unique experience that showed even more of his world."
Tom Hardy has been asked to gain 20 pounds to play the villain Bane in Christopher Nolan's next Batman pic The Dark Knight Rises. He has until May, when shooting starts. In an interview with U.K. talk show host Alan Carr, Hardy also dismissed any comparison between his new Bane and Joel Schumacher's Bane in 1997's Batman & Robin, played by the late Jeep Swenson. "Christopher Nolan will revisit that territory entirely so I wouldn't go by that [the earlier movie] at all."
Filming Now: The Twilight cast is arriving in Vancouver to shoot the Breaking Dawn movies. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart flew there together on a private jet, but the couple then drove separately to the Sheraton Wall Center Hotel.
