Penelope Cruz and Kate Middleton Deliver Babies on the Same Day!

While the world was busy fretting over the birth of Prince George Alexander Louis to Kate Middleton and Prince William in Britain, Oscar winning duo Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem welcomed a child of their own July 22 in Madrid, Spain.  39-year old Cruz gave birth to a daughter, the couple’s second child after the 2011 birth of son Leonardo Encinas, at Ruber International Hospital after being admitted on Monday.

While it’s no doubt that Cruz and Bardem’s child will receive attention merely because of who her parents are, Cruz voiced her desire to keep her kids out of the limelight by saying “I want my son and my kids – if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible.”  This may be easier said than done, but the couple are fiercely private and seem to shun the spotlight when not working on film projects.

Cruz surely wants to avoid being under the kind of microscope she faced during her three year relationship with Tom Cruise from 2001 to 2004.  Bardem grew up in a family of actors and filmmakers and took up the craft after trying his hand at being a painter in his youth so he’s already aware of the pitfalls of fame.  The couple, who last worked together in Woody Allen‘s ‘Vicky Christina Barcelona‘, will be appearing together again in the hotly anticipated Ridley Scott directed and Cormac McCarthy scripted ‘The Counselor‘ alongside such talent as Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, and Cameron Diaz.

Bollywood megastar Hrithik Roshan is recovering from brain surgery to remedy a chronic subdural haematoma on July 7th.  The procedure was a success according to his father, acting legend Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik even posted the following thumbs up on his twitter account with the words “controlling my environment,” which immediately got 25,000 likes from followers.

Fox Star Studios has delayed completion of Hrithik’s next movie ‘Bang Bang‘, a Bollywood remake of the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz film ‘Knight and Day‘, due to the star’s health concerns. The 39-year old Roshan is best known for Bollywood hits like ‘Krish‘, ‘Jodhaa Akbar‘, and ‘Agneepath‘.  The unexpected health scare has also delayed Roshan’s work on ‘Krish 3‘, on which he is acting as a producer and assistant director as well as the star of the film.

Following the surgery doctors advised Roshan that he should have four weeks of bed rest, but who knows if the athletic Bollywood star will follow advice with so much on his table.  ‘Krish 3’ is scheduled for release this November 3rd and ‘Bang Bang’ is scheduled for release on May 1st, 2014 following shooting in Thailand and Greece.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Hrithik for a speedy recovery.

Reportedly Cameron Diaz is set to make her musical debut playing Miss Hannigan in the remake of Annie.

The 40-year old actress who signed on after Sandra Bullock reportedly turned down the role twice, will be starring opposite 9-year old Quvenzhane Wallis, as the tyrant orphanage headmistress.

Oooh….this will be fun to watch. Not sure if Cameron has any vocal talent, but she can be funny.

The film is directed by Will Gluck and is expected to release in late 2014.

Brad Pitt and ‘Prometheus‘ director Ridley Scott have just released a trailer for the star-laden film ‘The Counselor‘.  Besides Mr. Pitt, the film features an All-Star ensemble cast including Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, John Leguizamo, and Goran Visnjic.  If that’s not enough for you, the movie is based on an original script from best-selling author Cormac McCarthy, whose last film ‘No Country for Old Men‘ was up for and won multiple Oscars.

It seems that the movie deals with a lawyer, played by Fassbender, who becomes involved with the Mexican drug cartels.  In the trailer Pitt offers the classic line that “You may think there are things these people are simply incapable of – there are not.”

The film is set for an October 25th U.K. premiere, right around the beginning of Oscar season.

Here’s the first trailer as promised:

Personally, the Movie Don can’t wait for this one as McCarthy is an exemplary writer and Ridley Scott’s resume, ‘Blade Runner‘, ‘Alien‘, ‘Gladiator‘, ‘Thelma & Louise‘, etc., really needs no introduction.
