  • Rep On Jason Biggs' Monkey Business: "Not Everything On The Internet Is True"

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Contrary to an online report, Jason Biggs has not been attacked by a Gibraltar ape while on vacation on the island, his rep told Access  Hollywood.

    “Jason’s in LA, had a meeting yesterday with his agents,” the rep told Access. “Not everything on the Internet is true.”

    Earlier on Thursday, the UK’s Telegraph reported that the star had gone sightseeing in Gibraltar, only to find himself face-to-face with a Barbary macaque that “tried to bite his face off.” There are reportedly some 200 “Barbary apes” in Gibraltar – a species native to North Africa and brought to the British territory by soldiers in the 18th century.


    The erroneous report comes at the same time as the 10th anniversary of Biggs’ breakthrough role, as a sex-challenged teenager who had a different close encounter – with the title desert — in the comedy “American Pie.”

  • Leonardo DiCaprio To Lose Radical Amount Of Weight For New Film

    Leonardo DiCaprio is set to become the latest celebrity to get seriously skinny for a film role. The movie hunk faces a weighty battle to lose a pile of pounds for his new movie Inception, which has been written by The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan.

    A set insider tells RadarOnline.com, "There's an action scene coming up at the end of the year in which he needs to appear emaciated, so the pressure is on. Leo isn't the kind of guy who can just lose a radical amount of weight... He's following a strict diet and is embarking on a rigorous workout regime. Leo's a pretty determined kind of guy, when he sets his mind to things he always achieves them. Though this is going to be hard for him, you can guarantee he'll succeed." Read more »
  • Patton Oswalt: 'Big Fan' Of Comics, Not Sports

    In Big Fan, comedian Patton Oswalt plays a huge New York Giants fan. The problem is, he doesn't exactly root for a team on Sunday in real life. So in his exclusive chat with PopEater, he summed up how he got into character: "Basically I had to draw on my geeky love for comics. It's the same spark, just different fuel."

    Big Fan has been riding a wave of buzz since its Sundance Film Festival debut - even drawing implications of a Golden Globe or Oscar nod. "I honestly don't know what to do when you're nominated. I'm assuming they send a car for you, and you go to some parties.

    "I'd be really happy if the movie got nominated... It would be good to see that happen knowing how hard Robert [Siegel] worked on this film."



    But playing a New York Giants fanatic isn't the only thing Patton is up to. "I just signed on as a regular to 'Caprica,' which is a prequel to 'Battlestar Galactica.' I'm also a regular on 'United States of Tara' and have a pretty good role in 'The Informant,' a movie Steven Soderbergh directed. In the meantime, I'll be finishing up my book, and hopefully it will come out next spring... I don't know what it is going to be about yet. It's all random essays, but I might tie it into a narrative. I haven't decided yet. We'll have to wait and see."

    For the entire interview, including Patton's preference between Big Fan and Ratatouille, head on over to PopEater!
