“In casting Han, the most important thing is: Who has the most interesting, ironic approach to life? And when I think of that, I think of Ellen Page,” Jason told Entertainment Weekly. “She’s a small human being who has the energy to fill Madison Square Garden.”

Ellen starred opposite Jessica Alba, who took on the role of Princes Leia.

“For Leia, I just wanted to find an actress who was beautiful and also had the ability to be tough and funny, and I’ve seen Alba do all of that. And I needed somebody who would have chemistry with Ellen.”

Zooey Deschanel Being Sued For Injuring a Horse

Zooey Deschanel and her co-star Hannah Simone don’t let the rain bother them as they film a scene for The New Girl on Tuesday (December 16) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old actress is currently being sued after a show horse she rented to ride back in 2013, for $13,000, was returned “injured and unusable,” according to TMZ.

Jude Law Demonstrates 'Backting' - Watch What Happens!

Jude Law gives his mom a kiss goodbye after meeting up with family members on Wednesday (December 17) in the Primrose Hill neighborhood of London, England.

The 41-year-old actor appeared on a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show and talked about something that became a joke on the set of his upcoming movie Black Sea.

“Basically, because you’re limited to a situation or a geographical change on a submarine, an awful lot of the footage is over the shoulder or reversed. So, we came up with who could “backted” the best, acting from behind and it became a running gag,” Jude said. Of course he demonstrated it as well. Watch below!

Iggy Azalea has just taken her feud with Azealia Banks another step further and she has slammed the rapper for being a bully, a bigot, and a “miserable, angry human being.”
