Lea Michele bares almost all for magazine

Glee star Lea Michele has stripped down for a new half-naked photoshoot with celebrity photographer Terry Richardson - the snapper responsible for many of Miranda Kerr’s racy photographs.

Michele, who’s debut solo album hits shelves this week, did the photoshoot with Richardson for V magazine.

Richardson is known for his provocative shoots. He worked with Australian model Kerr for the magazine cover of the January edition of Harper’s Bazaar Australia.

In one of the Michele’s photos the actress and singer flaunts her slim figure in a navy blue bodysuit, which she pulls down around her hip to reveal a small tattoo of a bird.

In an interview accompanying the piece, Michele, who is still mourning the death of her fiancee and Glee co-star Cory Monteith, admits she is usually not one to show off her sexier side or even hit the Hollywood party scene - a lifestyle that has earned her a unique nickname from pals.

‘‘My friends call me Grandma, but like, Grandma’s killing it right now. I’m pretty sure Grandma nailed it in a half-naked Terry Richardson shoot, okay?

''I don’t like things that other people like. I don’t like clubs or crazy, loud music. I’d rather be in bed watching Homeland with my cat, Sheila, eating a sandwich.’’


Quote of the day - Adam Levine

Every time I lose an artist to another coach on The Voice, I pick up People Magazine to remind myself I’m sexier than they are. - Maroon 5 frontman and coach on US talent show The Voice Adam Levine jokes about his status as People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.


Jonah Hill didn’t enjoy orgy scene 

US actor Jonah Hill didn’t enjoy the aeroplane orgy scene in The Wolf of Wall Street because he spent the day with a group of sweaty naked people and got to know his sex partner a little too well.

The actor admits many friends have asked him about the raucous scene in the Martin Scorsese film, because they’re convinced it must have been a lot of fun - but he insists it was anything but that.

‘‘It was the most unhygienic scenario I’ve ever been in. It was like an 18-hour day in this enclosed aeroplane set and there’s a guy’s balls, like, three centimetres away from you. Usually when I have a guy’s balls three centimetres away from me I’m not on an aeroplane.’’

Hill also said the actress cast to perform fake fellatio on his character was a mother of two young kids.

‘‘Her head would be down there and she’d be like, 'The transition from pre-school to kindergarten is so hard on them’. And you’re like, ’Yeah, that does seem challenging!’’’

The Wolf of Wall Street has been nominated for best film at next week’s Academy Awards in Los Angeles.


Aussie actor cast in Point Break remake

Australian actor Luke Bracey is set to take on Keanu Reeves’ iconic role in the Point Break remake.

Bracey, best known for his role as Trey Palmer in Home and Away, has been cast to play Johnny Utah, an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who tries to infiltrate a criminal gang in the world of surfing.

Reeves portrayed Utah in the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow movie, but he has ruled out a return for the remake.

Gerard Butler will take on the part of gang leader Bodhi, a role made famous by late actor Patrick Swayze.

Filming will begin later this year.


Khloe Kardashian has no regrets

Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian wouldn’t change a thing about her life.

The 29-year-old, star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, separated from husband Lamar Odom late last year after four years of marriage.

But the painful split hasn’t stopped Kardashian from appreciating her existence.

‘‘Your life is meant for you to understand and process, not to make anyone else happy,’’ she told Cosmopolitan magazine in a new cover interview, before touching on sister Kim’s experience divorcing basketball player Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage.

‘‘If she wasn’t happy it took guts to say, ’You know what? I can’t do this anymore.’ But you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. People hate us for showing stuff and they hate us when we say, ’Fine, we won’t show it anymore.’ I don’t have any regrets. I wouldn’t change a thing. You learn as you go.’’

Kardashian then went on to express her profound love for her family, which includes matriarch Kris Jenner, stepfather Bruce Jenner, sisters Kim, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, as well as her brother Rob.

She said her family makes her a better person.

‘‘We live in the public eye, so if one of us makes a mistake, it affects everyone. I have a such a great support system here. We’re so judged when we leave these walls that we try never to do that to one another.’’

Kardashian is now an aunt and it brings her so much joy to play with sisters Kim and Kourtney’s children.

She hopes to have a few children of her own in the future.

‘‘I love kids,’’ Kardashian said.‘‘I hope and pray I have kids when the time is right.’’
