Paul Bettany Asked for a Role in 'Solo,' & His Wish Was Granted!

Paul Bettany is opening up about how he got his role in the new movie Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The 46-year-old actor is a longtime friend of Ron Howard (after working with him on A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code) and he reached out to the filmmaker personally after he became the director of the movie.

“I texted him asking to be in it, and he said, ‘Let me see what I can do.’ And then he got back to me with a job. I was super thrilled when he came back and said, ‘Yeah, we’ve got something for you to do,’” Paul revealed in an interview with Uproxx.

“And that’s exactly how it happened. And, in fact, I texted him exactly this. [Pulls out phone] I said, ‘Hey, Ron, have you ever spent long winter evenings like I have wondering why I’m not in the Star Wars franchise?’” Paul added. “Then he texted me back, ‘LOL. Let me get back to you’… I was flying in two weeks. I was flying to London to start shooting.”

Paul said he is a longtime Star Wars fan ever since seeing the first movie at age six as a kid in London.

William H. Macy Wants His Daughters to 'Have a Lot of Sex' with No Guilt

William H. Macy Wants His Daughters to 'Have a Lot of Sex' with No Guilt

William H. Macy is opening up about his hopes for his daughters’ love lives.

The 68-year-old Shameless actor, who is married to Felicity Huffman, wants their daughters Sofia, 17, and Georgia, 16, to be able to have a lot of sex without feeling guilty about it.

William says that he’ll be welcoming to all of his daughters’ boyfriends and that his older daughter is already having boys sleep over.

“You know, I started doing all the cliches, ‘I’m gonna threaten the guys, I’m gonna dig a moat around our house,’” William told Us Weekly. “And then I thought, ‘OK, what do you really want for your daughters?’ And I realized: I want them to be happy and lusty and safe. I want them to have a lot of sex in their lifetime! Good, healthy wonderful sex with no guilt. That’s what I really want.”

“They’re different than when I was a kid. Georgia and Sofia have all their pals over. They will have six or eight of their friends over,” he added. “It’s pretty bizarre, especially with Sofia, to wake up in the morning and there’s some boy walking out of your daughter’s room! They all sleep together! I don’t think they have sex, well, I know they don’t.”

'Sesame Street' Creators Are Suing Studio Behind Melissa McCarthy's Puppet Movie 'Happytime Murders

'Sesame Street' Creators Are Suing Studio Behind Melissa McCarthy's Puppet Movie 'Happytime Murders

Sesame Workshop, the parent company of the beloved children’s show Sesame Street, is suing STX Productions over its new Melissa McCarthy movie The Happytime Murders.

The upcoming movie is “a filthy comedy set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show.” (Watch the trailer now!)

The workshop is asking that the studio “simply drop the references to Sesame Street from The Happytime Murders marketing materials – a relatively small burden compared to the devastating and irreparable injury Defendants are causing.”

The poster for the movie has the tagline “No Sesame. All Street.”

The plaintiffs say that the “Defendants have refused, and the confusion and tarnishment are building, as evidenced in numerous social media postings.”

The Happytime Murders is directed by Brian Henson, the son of the late Jim Henson, who rose to fame developing characters for Sesame Street and later creating The Muppets.

Karen Gillan, Kathryn Newton, & Lilly Singh Discuss Issues Facing Women in Hollywood

Karen Gillan, Kathryn Newton, & Lilly Singh Discuss Issues Facing Women in Hollywood

Avengers: Infinity War‘s Karen Gillan, Big Little LiesKathryn Newton, and Fahrenheit 451‘s Lilly Singh grace the cover of the annual Women in Hollywood portfolio for Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital magazine PorterEdit!

They were joined by Diary of a Teenage Girl director Marielle Heller and Netflix’s VP of Original Documentary and Comedy Programming, Lisa Nishimura.

Here’s what the actresses had to share with the mag:

Karen on why she wanted to direct: “When I was growing up, I had a video camera and I would make horror movies with my parents or friends. I didn’t think of directing as a female job, which is ridiculous, but I hadn’t seen any examples. Then I started working in the industry and thought: ‘I should just do this.’ It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

Kathryn on the one woman who has most inspired her:Reese Witherspoon has made me a better actress. I remember the first table read of Big Little Lies; everyone was a big star and instead of leaving after, she ate lunch with me, and we talked about college and her daughter and Coachella.”

Lilly on being an Indian woman in the media: “As an Indian woman, my career allowed me to do something that most women in my family don’t get to do, which is move away from home. Now my mom doesn’t even care if I get married!”
