Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds are reportedly planning a secret wedding. 

The 47-year-old actress and the 'Change-Up' star - who split from Scarlett Johansson after two years of marriage in December 2010 - are believed to have recently vacationed in Wyoming, and while on vacation the pair discussed the idea of marriage after the actor bonded with her 20-month-old son Louis.

A source told America's Star magazine: "Ryan told her he was ready to tie the knot whenever she wants. 

And after seeing how quickly she's bonded with baby Louis, she decided she's ready to pull the trigger, too. 

"So they started discussing the logistics of pulling off a low-key, barefoot wedding that would reflect their laid-back lifestyle."

William Bradley "Brad" Pitt (born December 18, 1963) is an American actor and film producer. Pitt has received two Academy Award nominations and four Golden Globe Award nominations, winning one. He has been described as one of the world's most attractive men, a label for which he has received substantial media attention.

Following a high-profile relationship with actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston for five years. Pitt lives with actress Angelina Jolie in a relationship that has generated wide publicity.

He and Jolie have six children—Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne. Since beginning his relationship with Jolie, he has become increasingly involved in social issues both in the United States and internationally.

Pitt owns a production company named Plan B Entertainment, whose productions include the 2007 Academy Award winning Best Picture, The Departed.

Pitt appeared in two episodes of MTV's reality series Jackass in February 2002, first running through the streets of Los Angeles with several cast members in gorilla suits, and participating in his own staged abduction in another episode. In the same year, Pitt had a cameo role in George Clooney's directorial debut Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

He took on his first voice-acting roles in 2003, lending his voice to the titular character of the DreamWorks animated film Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas and playing Boomhauer's brother, Patch, in an episode of the animated television series King of the Hill.


He voiced the superhero character Metro Man in the 2010 animated feature Megamind. Pitt appeared in Terrence Malick's drama The Tree of Life, co-starring Sean Penn, which won the Palme d'Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

The actor has been promoting his new movie Moneyball and has done several television and magazine chats recently. 

But he has apparently turned down the opportunity to speak to the acerbic late night talk show host who has also made rude jokes about his partner Angelina Jolie in the past. 

"Chelsea would love to have had Brad on her show," an insider told The Huffington Post. 

"She's had some of the biggest stars in the world on her show to promote their films. She's had Gwyneth Paltrow visit and even Jennifer Aniston, but Brad said no way." 

Moneyball opened up in theatres this past weekend and had a strong box office start with $20.7 million in earnings but he seemingly felt he did not need the extra publicity from Handler. 

"It would have been great if he had agreed to do an interview with Jen's best friend Chelsea," the source added. 

"If he's still as good friends with Jen as he says then he would have done E!" 

"He's full of it and Chelsea knows it. That's why he wouldn't talk with her, he doesn't have the balls." 

However, after Handler lambasted Jolie during her standup routine in December 2010, it is perhaps not surprising that Pitt did not want to speak to her. 

"She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to," Handler said last year. "I don't f**king believe you."

The No.1 World Best Hollywood Actor is Hugh Jackman

Jackman at the 83rd Academy Awards, 27 February 2011

Hugh Jackman Is A Best Actor And Producer-

Hugh Jackman
Born Hugh Michael Jackman
12 October 1968 (age 42)
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Occupation Actor
Years active 1994–present
Spouse Deborra-Lee Furness

Hugh Michael Jackman (born 12 October 1968) is an Australian actor and producer who is involved in film, musical theatre, and television.

Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as action/superhero, period and romance characters. He is known for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men series, as well as for his leads in Kate & Leopold, Van Helsing, The Prestige, and Australia. 

Jackman is a singer, dancer, and actor in stage musicals, and won a Tony Award for his role in The Boy from Oz.

In November 2008, Open Salon named Jackman one of the sexiest men alive. Later that same month, People magazine named Jackman "Sexiest Man Alive."

A three-time host of the Tony Awards, winning an Emmy Award for one of these appearances, Jackman also hosted the 81st Academy Awards on 22 February 2009.

 Future Project-
  • Jackman will star in The Greatest American Showman, a contemporary musical based on the life of P.T. Barnum. The female love interest part is being written with Anne Hathaway in mind.
  • Real Steel (2011), a DreamWorks science fiction film.
  • Director Lee Daniels has confirmed Jackman has joined the cast of his upcoming film Selma, a film about Martin Luther King Jr. and Lyndon Baines Johnson and the civil rights marches.
  • On 27 January 2011, DreamWorks announced that Jackman will star in the film Rise of the Guardians, scheduled to be released on 21 November 2012.
  • Jackman has been cast in Movie 43, an upcoming 2012 ensemble comedy.
  • Jackman is in negotiations to star as Jean Valjean in the film Les Misérables, an adaptation of the musical.
The actor might be best known for playing “X-Men’s” Wolverine (in movies that son Oscar, 11, daughter Ava, 6, have yet to see), but Hugh’s kids are all about giant boxing robots.

“This is the first time they’ve really connected with one of my films. I don’t let them watch ‘X-Men,’” Hugh told Access Hollywood at the “Real Steel” junket in Los Angeles on Saturday.

“Most of the time they don’t really ask me much about my job. They come on set, but it’s just dad, it’s normal,” he continued. “This is the first time they were like, ‘We love this!’ And they wanna take their friends. They have all the action figures. My son sleeps with Adam the robot.”

Hugh said that his son’s love of the “Real Steel” script helped seal the deal on him doing the movie.

“I read this script for the first time with my son… I was like being a bad parent and instead of reading ‘Tintin,’

I read ‘Real Steel’ and my son made me read it to him for the next 10 nights,” he explained. “So, I knew we were on to a winner then.”

Hugh also chatted with Access about his recent WWE appearance where he was seen going “Real Steel” on wrestler Dolph Ziggler’s face.

“It is scripted entertainment, but I gotta tell you, what goes on in that ring is real!” he told Access. “[Dolph] is looking at me saying, ‘You hit me man!’ He goes, ‘Don’t you embarrass me out there.’ So I take direction well.”

Jackman will perform what he calls a personal selection of favorite musical numbers reflecting his varied career, including The Boy From Oz on Broadway, Oklahoma! 

on the London stage and much more. The star has concentrated on movies and stage drama (A Steady Rain) in recent years, but he returned to his musical roots in acclaimed pre-Broadway concert engagements in San Francisco and Toronto.

Stosur at the 2009 US Open

Samantha "Sam" Jane Stosur (English pronunciation: /ˈstoʊzər/ stoh-zər, born 30 March 1984) is an Australian professional tennis player. She won the 2011 US Open singles title and was a finalist at the 2010 French Open. 

Stosur is ranked World No. 7 and her career high in singles is World No. 4, achieved on 21 February 2011. She is a former world No. 1 on the WTA Tour in doubles with Lisa Raymond from the United States.

Samantha Stosur is the daughter of Tony and Diane and has two brothers, Dominic and Daniel. At the age of six her house in Gold Coast was destroyed by a flood, causing her family to move to Adelaide.

There she started playing tennis, when she was given a racquet for Christmas at the age of eight. While her parents worked long hours at the cafe they had started up, Stosur played at local courts with older brother Daniel, who later encouraged their parents to take her to tennis lessons.

Stosur began her 2011 season by competing at the Brisbane International. She fell in straight sets to fellow Australian, Jarmila Groth in the second round. After this tournament, Stosur competed at the Medibank Sydney International as the fourth seed. She lost in the second round to Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Stosur was seeded fifth at the 2011 Australian Open, where she lost in the third round to 25th seed Petra Kvitová, 6–7, 3–6. 

Stosur's ranking rose to number 5, despite her early loss at the Australian Open. Stosur then rose to a new career high no. 4, following a quarterfinal showing at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

Stosur had a disappointing start to the first American leg of the year, falling in the third round of the Indian Wells to Dinara Safina, 6–7, 4–6.

In Miami, Stosur was seeded fourth, but was defeated in the fourth round by 16th seed and former no. 1 Maria Sharapova, 4–6, 1–6.

Williams arrived in the final after dismantling world number one Caroline Wozniacki in the semi-finals on Saturday night in a match that dragged toward midnight.

"I was more tired than I expected," Williams said. "But I want to give all credit to Sam today ... She played really, really well. That's what you have to do when you play a Grand Slam final."

Stosur, playing her second career Grand Slam final after a runner-up finish in the French Open last year, quickly claimed the opening set, breaking Williams to lead 2-1 and winning the last 12 points of the set as Williams' frustration grew.

Williams, whose powerful serve is a cornerstone of her game, struggled to get her first serves in and Stosur repeatedly made her pay.

"She was cracking 'em today," Williams said of the Australian, who was still rolling in the opening game of the second frame when she gave herself a double break point with a crushing return of serve.

Williams saved one with an ace, and appeared to save another for deuce.

World's Last Great Forest In The world As The Great Forest of Enjoyment

Forest Loss For Some Regions and Others Facing Heavy Fragmentation and Exploitation"

The world's last remaining "pristine" forest - the boreal forest across large stretches of Russia, Canada and other northern countries - is under increasing threat, a team of international researchers has found.

The researchers from the University of Adelaide in Australia, Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada and the National University of Singapore have called for the urgent preservation of existing boreal forests in order to secure biodiversity and prevent the loss of this major global carbon sink.

To date it has remained largely intact because of the typically sparse human populations in boreal regions. That is now changing says researchers and co-authors Associate Professor Corey Bradshaw, University of Adelaide, Associate Professor Ian Warkentin, Memorial University, and Professor Navjot Sodhi, National University of Singapore.

“Much world attention has focused on the loss and degradation of tropical forests over the past three decades, but now the boreal forest is poised to become the next Amazon,” says Associate Professor Bradshaw, from the University of Adelaide’s Environment Institute.

“Historically, fire and insects have driven the natural dynamics of boreal ecosystems,” says Associate Professor Warkentin. 

“But with rising demand for resources, human- disturbances caused by logging, mining and urban

development have increased in these forests during recent years, with extensive forest loss for some regions and others facing heavy fragmentation and exploitation.”
