Keira Knightley to star in another epic love story role #AnnaKarenina

Does your husband have a thing for Keira Knightley? I know mine did, but I think he lost some of his lust for her when she started looking like a female Jack Skellington.

Either way, Focus Features is proud to announce the official US trailer debut for their upcoming feature film: Anna Karenina. Starring Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson, Jude Law, Matthew Macfadyen, and directed by director, Joe Wright, Anna Karenina arrives in select theaters on November 9th, 2012.

Synopsis:

The third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with director Joe Wright, following the award-winning box office successes “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement,” is the epic love story “Anna Karenina,” adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (“Shakespeare in Love”). The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna (Ms. Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.

Keira Knightley dogs Facebook; Nicolette Sheridan Leaves Housewives

Keira Knightley will never sign up to popular websites like Twitter or Facebook because she is convinced the social networking forums are “dehumanizing” users.

She says, “I hate the internet. I find it dehumanizing to constantly check emails or social sites which have become so fashionable. I’m not a celebrity. I don’t go home or out with friends saying, ‘I’m a celebrity’ and I don’t ask to be treated like a queen. Mom and dad wouldn’t like that.”

Sienna Miller often fancies searching the internet for stories about herself.

The actress relies on good pal Keira Knightley, 24, to stop her.

‘If there’s that awful temptation to Google yourself, she’ll phone up and go: “I’m thinking about Googling”,’ explains Sienna.

‘I’ll say: “I am too!” And we;ll talk each other out of it.;

“Desperate Housewives” actress Nicollette Sheridan tells TV Guide Magazine that killing off her character, Edie Britt, could have “devastating ramifications” for the show.

She tells the publication of her character’s relationship with the show’s creator Marc Cherry, “I think whoever Edie represented in Marc’s life was somebody he didn’t like. And he had a very difficult time distinguishing between fact and fiction.”

Nicollette says, for her, “Desperate Housewives” started to change. “When the show started it was such a different beast. It was exciting and dangerous and funny and edgy and bizarre. It started feeling a little complacent, and that was very frustrating.”

What’s happening on “How I Met Your Mother?”

With Barney’s love for Robin unfolding gradually (and more people learning about it), it’s only a matter of time before Barney comes clean to Robin. But it seems that Barney is still not keen on completely stepping it up just yet. While Barney already marveled on how much he misses Robin when she’s not around, thinks about her all the time, and imagines the two of them running towards each other in slow motion, his friendship with his best friend Ted (Robin’s ex) remains his main concern, along with evading the risk of being rejected by the love of his life.

Excellent birthday, speaking from a gal also born on that day…but 28 years ago.

Britney Spears has embarked on a passionate affair with a backing dancer in a bid to win back the original dancer in her life – ex-husband Kevin Federline, it’s claimed.

The singer is said to have fallen back in love with the father of her two boys after spending time with her former spouse while on the road with her Circus act.

“They are seeing each other every day,” a source tells OK!. “When Kevin’s had the boys for the day, they greet their mom with hugs and kisses, and their dad fills Britney in on how they spent their time. It’s just like any other family when one of the parents comes home from work.”

Two months after news broke of the alleged violent fight between Rihanna and Chris Brown, a PSA about domestic violence starring Keira Knightley is set to debut in theaters.

The two-minute clip, which will start airing April 6, depicts Knightley being violently kicked and beaten by a man.

“While domestic violence exists in every section of society we rarely hear about it,” says the actress, who volunteered to act in the clip for the charity Women’s Aid. “Domestic violence affects one in four women at some point in their lifetime and kills two women every week.” Atonement director Joe Wright directed the spot.

Colin Farrell has been leaning on Keira Knightley following his recent split from girlfriend Emma Forrest.

The Irish actor, 32, split from novelist Emma last month after the pair had dated for almost a year.

And Farrell is now seeking solace in Knightley – his costar in new movie London Boulevard.

Bleck. I don’t like Colin Farrell and I’m fairly certain Keira will not get caught up in any of his so-called charm.

Miley Cyrus can’t understand why everyone’s making such a big deal over a photo of her cleavage.

The 16-year-old was recently snapped jogging with her shirtless older beau Justin Gaston. Miley was sporting a cleavage-baring top – and her assets were there for everyone to see.

I don’t understand it either. When you wear a bikini under a top and you’re running it’s not easy to hide cleavage if your top moves, too. I’m so tired of people picking on her. Good grief!

So, we all know that Izzie is sick and that whatever she has is not going to be good. Rumors have it that her illness has been devised as a way to give Katherine Heigl a smooth (and permanent) exit from the show, but we’ve gotten no confirmations yet as to whether or not that’s true.

According to Spoiler TV, Justin Chambers revealed in an interview with TVGuide.ca that “Izzie has cancer, so I’m there to support her.”
