Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi got some helpful tips on how to cope with the pressure of the iconic role from a very useful source – previous Time Lords Matt Smith and David Tennant.

The Scottish actor, 56, took over from Smith, 31, in the hit sci-fi TV series last year and his full debut as the time-travelling adventurer aired in the U.K. and U.S. last weeked.

He had previously told how landing the part was a childhood dream come true, but now he has confessed he was secretly terrified of taking on the role and received some wise words of advice from a previous and much younger incumbent.

Capaldi tells British newspaper The Sun, “I think I would have found this difficult when I was Matt’s age. At that age, I was less assured as an actor than he is and not so in touch with my skills. I was watching him the other night in an old episode – he has such a magic and wisdom about him. And he’s been a big help to me. Both he and David Tennant have been tremendously helpful.”

Mila Kunis called out a small army of cops following a pilates class in Sherman Oaks, California on Tuesday after spotting a paparazzi snapping shots of her from his car.

The actress accused the snapper of breaking a stalking law as she leaned into the window of his car and challenged him about his chosen profession.

She asked, “Why are you stalking me?” adding, “It’s illegal what you’re doing; you can’t stalk a woman and her child. There’s a 30-foot law and you’re passing it… There’s a federal law you’re breaking.”

In video obtained by WENN, the defiant paparazzi fires back at the star, insisting there’s no such law. He then alerts Kunis to the fact that other photographers have gathered at the scene and are taking pictures.

She responds, “That motherf**ker has been stalking me for years. I don’t give a s**t about him.”

The actress then asks the snapper to get out of his car as she calls the police to report him, stating, “I have a person stalking me… and he won’t get out of the car.”

The snapper continues videoing the whole exchange, despite threats he will get arrested when the cops arrive.

There were no arrests or citations, but 10 police officers did arrive on the scene to check out the drama

“I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor – and I’m sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers. Just know – I’m a really big fan of YOURS! PS anyone else – feel free to make your own sign for Will and post it with the hashtag #TeamWill so he can see it… I’m sure he’d love that!”

Robert Downey Jr. has branded the summer blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy the “best Marvel movie ever”.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe introduced a new superhero in Peter Quill/Star Lord, played by Chris Pratt, earlier this month, and the film quickly become a hit, surpassing the $500 million mark in the global box office.

In a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, Downey, Jr. graciously admits the newest addition to the Marvel family is the one to beat.

He said, “Guardians of the Galaxy, in some ways, is the best Marvel movie ever. It’s odd for someone with – on occasion – an ego the size of mine to actually say that…

“It’s like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: ‘Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has a great arm and he should start.’ And then he goes and wins the Superbowl!”

Ironically, Guardians director James Gunn said at the film’s recent press conference in London that he and Pratt have discussed at length what would happen if Downey, Jr. and the rest of The Avengers had a face-off with Quill and his team.

Gunn revealed, “Chris and I were driving somewhere the other day and in the car we were having one of our ridiculous conversations and we were talking about all the different things that could happen to the Guardians in this universe, like we do endlessly, we talk about it constantly.

“And he was saying, ‘Dude seriously, I really really think that Star Lord should kill Iron Man. Like it would be so awesome and if he shot him, people would be so surprised”.

Rap stars including Rick Ross, Diddy, The Game and 2 Chainz have joined forces to record a new protest track dedicated to the African-American teen whose death earlier this month sparked the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.

Unarmed Michael Brown’s death at the hands of a police officer prompted a series of stand-offs between activists, locals and cops, while stars like Lauryn Hill, Nelly, Common and Diddy paid tribute to the dead teen, who was laid to rest two weeks ago.

And now The Game has gathered some of hip-hop’s biggest names to record and release the track “Don’t Shoot,” which is dedicated to Brown.

The track also features Fabolous, Wale and Swizz Beatz, among others, while TGT members Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank join a kids choir for the song’s chorus.

Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa has confirmed her mom is “resting comfortably” after suffering cardiac and respiratory failure during a medical procedure on Thursday.

The New York Daily News reports Rivers was later placed in a medically-induced coma, and doctors are planning to take the 81 year old out of the it this weekend and assess any damage.

Rivers’ daughter Melissa flew from her home in California to be with her mum in New York, and gave an update on her mother’s condition late on Thursday night.

A statement to Us Weekly via Mount Sinai Hospital representative Sid Dinsay reads, “I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”

The Luminary, a French American Brasserie that has recently opened in the still-not-fully-open Krog Street Market in Atlanta, is poised to be one of the new must-try date night spots – especially if Head Bartender Ian Cox continues whipping up drinks like he did when we chatted with him.

Ian, who got started bartending in college, has quite the background in the field. Not only is he a Certified Specialist in Spirits (CSS) and graduate of the Bar Smarts program (a requirement of all The Luminary bartenders), but he also currently holds the title of Bombay Sapphire’s “Most Imaginative Bartender” for the Atlanta area (which was hosted by the United States Bartenders’ Guild). Ian be traveling to Las Vegas next month to compete for the title of “Nation’s Most Imaginative Bartender,” a title that results in a cover feature of GQ magazine’s “Men of the Year” December 2014 issue and will guarantee him a spot as the US representative in the 2015 Global Finals.

When it comes to how he thought up his winning “La Dame du Loc” drink, which consists of Drambuie and Martini and Rossi bianco, he said, “In our cocktail lab, they were always focused on “Show us who you are. Tell us who you are.” Well, I’m a big hairy Scottish guy, who works at a French restaurant. So all the products in [the drink] are either French or Scottish-inspired… The pastis is French, the vermouth is French, and the drambuie is Scottish… Everything is meant to highlight a flavor inside of the gin.” (We were fortunate enough to try the drink and would highly recommend it. Our Editor-in-Chief Emma Loggins isn’t even a gin person, but she loved it as well. I’ll warn you though… it sneaks up on you!)

No one would know a better hangover cure than the one responsible for the hangovers, so when we asked him about what he’d suggest for the person that got a little too turnt up the night before, he said, “Bloody Mary. I make Bloody Mary’s when we all hang out at home, especially at the beach. I can’t get out the house without making a Bloody Mary… Even on my sister’s wedding day they had me making Bloody Mary’s for everybody. I made about 1000 Bloody Mary’s that day.”

Find out what other secrets Ian let us in on and watch him mix up some delicious drinks in the full interview below!

If you’re in town be sure to stop by The Luminary, and get Ian to mix you up his famed “La Dame du Loc”. The food is great, the service is pleasant and there’s nothing better than someone with a passion for mixology handling your drinks. You certainly won’t regret it!

Jessica Chastain has called out Marvel bosses for creating solo feature films for most of The Avengers except Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow.

The Zero Dark Thirty star was lamenting the lack of major action roles for women in film in an interview with TheWrap.com, and she noted that Johansson, who plays the Russian spy in the Marvel movies, has yet to have her own starring vehicle.

Chastain says, “Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don’t understand it, why is it taking so long for this?

“This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies… She shows that she kicks a**, she’s a great actress. Under the Skin is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson?

“To me, it’s a no-brainer. You want to make money, put Scarlett Johansson in a superhero movie!”
Chastain isn’t the only one clamoring for a Black Widow spin-off – many fans have also called on studio bosses to give the character her own movie.

Earlier this summer (14), Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige responded to the requests via Comic Book Resources, saying he and his colleagues have not completely ruled out a Black Widow film.

He explained, “It comes down to timing, which is what I’ve sort of always said, and it comes down to us being able to tell the right story. I hope we do it sooner rather than later.”
