Rupert Grint: ‘We Were Kissing Up A Storm’

“It was quite intense. Ron’s new girlfriend, Lavender, kind of attacks him. I had only really just met Jessie Cave, who plays her, and suddenly, we were kissing up a storm. I was quite worked up about it because we’re in the middle of a huge crowd…”

Zooey Deschanel: Love ‘Is Absolutely Worth It’

Zooey Deschanel’s uniquely quirky appeal is a perfect match for Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 500 Days of Summer — a “turn around” romantic comedy in which (pay attention here) the guy is head over heels in love with a woman who doesn’t believe in commitment.

Deschanel understands why their love story is getting lots of great buzz, as is her own love story with fiance and Death Cab for Cutie frontman Benjamin Gibbard. She revealed to’s Jeanne Wolf that the relationship rings true because it’s like real life.

“Tom and Summer are like the flip sides of my generation. They represent different sides of what love means — total commitment versus ambivalence. The twist is that I play a woman who doesn’t believe true love exists while Joe is head over heels and much more idealistic about romance. Usually it’s the other way around. I can relate to…”

John Leguizamo isn’t known for PG comedy, but he’s a hit for the third time around in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, adding a lispy voice to Sid, a sloth struggling with his new role as an adoptive parent.

Leguizamo gets back to his trademark high-energy, no-holds-barred humor this month when he takes his new stand-up show John Leguizamo Live! on a summer tour in selected cities.’s Jeanne Wolf found out that John is just as funny up close and personal.

“I studied with Strasberg. I’m a method guy. So I went to the zoo and I looked at the giant three-toed sloth and the smaller ones. OK, there wasn’t really much to see until there was a little sloth romance. They don’t move much except when they mate. They mate really quickly, which is very bizarre…”
