It’s hard getting over an ex, even if you’ve been with other people since. We’ve all been there, Scarlett Johansson included. The actress admitted that she isn’t exactly over her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds. “I don’t feel on the other side of it completely, but it gets better,” she told Vogue regarding the December 2010 divorce. “It’s still there. More than anything, it’s just not having your buddy around all the time is weird.”
Sounds like Scarlett misses Ryan’s companionship, despite dating Sean Penn and advertising exec Nate Naylor since the split. However, we don’t think the feelings are mutual, as Ryan is currently shacked up with Blake Lively in NYC.

In an interview scheduled to air in May on Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show, Anderson, Kevin Costner reveals that not only did he court Princess Diana to star in the sequel to his 1992 hit, The Bodyguard, but the late royal was eager to take on the role. It would have been her first acting endeavor.
“Diana and I had been talking about doing Bodyguard 2,” added Costner, who co-starred with the late Whitney Houston in the original film. “I told her I would take care of her just the same way that I took care of Whitney. . . . She wanted me to write it for her. I said ‘I’ll tailor it for you if you’re interested.’ She goes: ‘I am interested.’”
The sequel, ironically enough, would have centered on Costner’s Bodyguard character, Frank Farmer, protecting Diana’s character from paparazzi and stalkers before the pair become romantically involved. The actor told Cooper that he received the script for the sequel on August 31, 1997, the day before Princess Diana died in Paris in a car crash that was originally blamed on paparazzi, who were following the vehicle that carried her and Dodi Fayed.
In 2011, Warner Bros. announced that it was planning a Bodyguard reboot.

In a swoon-worthy, never-before-seen photo taken by LIFE’s John Dominis, Steve McQueen kisses Natalie Wood’s hand as the actors meet to discuss their new big-screen project, 1963’s Love With the Proper Stranger. In the romance, which earned Wood her third Academy Award nomination, the stars “reveal the kind of talent for instant communication which film fans have come to expect only from art films,” LIFE wrote in its review. “They take a painful situation (Natalie is pregnant, and Steve is the kind of guy who doesn’t want to get married), and they manage to be both achingly human and agonizingly funny without ever being dirty.”

Jennifer Lawrence has gone from Panem to Prague!
The first shot of the Hunger Games star and Bradley Cooper on the set of their new period piece, Serena, has just been unveiled.
According to a press release, production commenced today in the Czech Republic, and we have to admit, the costars are rocking that 1920s style.

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Ron Rash, the flick revolves around George (Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Lawrence), who travel from Boston to North Carolina to build a timber empire.
Sound a little dull? Don’t worry. Things get more interesting when Serena learns she can never get pregnant and sets out to murder the woman who bore George a son.
No word if a crossbow will factor into her scheme.

PETER STACKPOLE :
A native Californian who maintained a lifelong connection with the Bay Area — even as he traveled the globe for a quarter-century as a professional photographer — Peter Stackpole was born in San Francisco in 1913 to artist parents, and developed an interest in photography in grammar school. Early in his career he was affiliated with the influential ensemble of like-minded, San Francisco-based photographers known as Group f/64 (which included greats such as Edward Weston and Ansel Adams) and also photographed for the Oakland Tribune newspaper.
