Oscar Isaac feared Madonna would send him to exercise boot camp

Oscar Isaac feared Madonna would send him to exercise boot camp to prepare for his sex scenes in 'W.E.'.

The actor plays the part of bodyguard Evgeni in the new movie ' a two-tier tale about Britain's King Edward VIII's romance with Wallis Simpson and a modern story about a woman named Wally ' and he admits he was terrified about stripping off for his love scenes with co-star Abbie Cornish because the super-fit singer-turned-director was watching.

Speaking on the red carpet at the UK premiere of his new movie 'Sucker Punch' at the Vue cinema in London's Leicester Square last night (30.03.11), Oscar told BANG Showbiz: ' play a security guard that Abbie's character Wally Winthrop falls in love with. We have a romance. That was one of the more intimidating moments. I had to take my clothes off in front of Madonna. I thought she was going to order me out of the room - 'Get out and get to the gym!' '

Despite his concerns, the 31-year-old hunk had a good time with Madonna ' who has launched her own chain of gyms, entitled Hard Candy Fitness - on set after he got over his initial nerves.

Oscar ' who stars alongside Vanessa Hudgens and Jena Malone in fantasy action movie 'Sucker Punch', which is directed by Zack Snyder ' said: 'Madonna was great. It was intimidating but she's a pretty amazing woman. Is she a diva? I was hoping she would be one. She's actually very self-deprecating and really funny. She's actually very open.'

Other stars to walk the rainy red carpet in London included 'Sucker Punch' cast members Emily Browning and Jamie Chung and future Superman Henry Cavill.

Casey Abrams Redeems Himself On 'American Idol' With 'Your Song'

Abrams initially came into the competition one of the favorites to win it all, though a series of health problems and a couple of bum performances — including last week's train-wreck take on Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" — stalled his momentum to the point where America sent him packing. But the judges threw their weight behind the shaggy-haired soul man, and this week it was up to him to prove they made the right decision.
But first, he had to deal with the fallout from last week's performance. When mentor Jimmy Iovine rolled tape of Abrams' Motown week effort, the singer found it difficult to even watch. "You know what was wrong with that performance?" Iovine asked. Abrams sheepishly replied "some ... things?" while Iovine corrected him: "Everything!" Iovine went on to say Abrams "killed himself" with the Gaye cover, saying he'd lost his way in the competition and needed to refocus.

Producer Rodney Jerkins was just as critical, but had a far more concrete solution to Abrams' problems: "Get rid of the beard." Abrams took Jerkins' advice to heart and took his mug to Baxter Finley, a Los Angeles barber shop, where a team of skilled professionals trimmed his bushy facial fuzz and hacked away at his unkempt hair. The results weren't unveiled until Abrams hit the "Idol" stage, though it wasn't as dramatic as the segment led viewers to believe. Instead, Abrams' look was simply a fresher, cleaner version of the wild man he'd come to be known as — Abrams 2.0, if you will.
His performance was where he really showed his rededication to the competition. Taking on Elton John's "Your Song," Abrams stayed seated and didn't do laps around the studio as he did during Motown week or thrash in place as he did during his risky take on Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" two weeks prior. He dialed himself way back, delivering the song in a comfortable, heartfelt manner and letting the lyrics take over. (Some tabloid reports have tied Abrams to fellow contestant Haley Reinhart, though there was no word whether he was singing the song to his alleged new squeeze.) Eventually, he let out his inner Casey, grunting a few notes near the song's close, but overall it was the most reserved he'd been onstage yet. He delivered a high closing note that noted music scholar Randy Jackson would later identify as a Major 9.
Jackson called the performance "brilliant," "nice" and "tender," while Steven Tyler praised Abrams' range of styles, saying that makes him a "true artist." Jennifer Lopez called the performance "very Casey" and reiterated that the judges made the correct decision by keeping him around. "Along the way, we've had to make some hard decisions and send some really, really great people home, and I've lost sleep over that. But one decision I didn't lose one ounce of sleep over was saving you," she said. "I slept like a baby!"

London In Bloom - Spring Florals

Mount Street Gardens.

Spring has finally sprung - at least here in London. Temperatures are rising, the days are getting longer and the sun is making more frequent appearances. But of course Spring would be nothing without the beauty of blossoming flowers. And because the eight cherry trees in front of my living room window are a constant reminder of how wonderful this time of the year can be, I've been inspired to hunt down more floral delights in the shape of both the real thing and the fashion world's recurring love affair with the flower print.

Henry Holland's 'Debut' - Charity Event & Exhibition (London, UK)

There's nothing better than spending money on something when you know it's for a good cause. Which is why the combination of fashion and charity is such a great mix. The last time I posted about a charity collaboration, it involved designer dolls, which some of you (and yours truly) deemed to be a bit creepy at times. An event that happened this week titled Debut was decidedly less sinister, since it involved actual clothing, art and other memorabilia.

Launched by Henry Holland, Debut saw the designer recruit the help from fellow British creatives and friends, resulting in a large collection of coveted pieces which were first featured in a pre-event exhibition, then auctioned off on March 24. All proceeds went to Cancer Research UK, the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research.

A gorgeous venue: auction pieces displayed in the converted church that is One Mayfair.

I got a chance to catch a glimpse of some of the pieces prior to the auction event, all of which were presented in the stunning One Mayfair venue (a converted former church dating back to 1825). The lots up for auction focused on British fashion through the ages, featuring donations from the likes of Christopher Kane, Nicholas Kirkwood, Kate Moss or Paul Smith to name a few - while Agyness Deyn starred as a DJ during the actual auction.

Loved the pink-black combo of the seating area. The official booklet listed all auction items and the event schedule.

Below you'll find a few of the pieces that went up for auction. Which item(s) would you have bid on? Let me know!

Left: Peter Pilotto dress; the design was worn by Kate Bosworth. Right: Dress by Erdem, designed for Browns boutique to celebrate 40 years of British Fashion.

Donations by Henry Holland himself, included the signature House of Holland slogan shirts and an afternoon out with the man himself (left). A beautiful creation by milliner Stephen Jones (top right) and an autographed photograph of Kate Moss during Alexander McQueen's 2004 runway show, photographed by Richard Young.

If you missed 'Debut', you can always donate to Cancer Research UK via the official page. Henry Holland will be doing more charitable work next month when he runs the London Marathon for Oxfam along with a few friends (including Agyness once again). Donations for that can still be made via this fundraising page.

On a final note, if you happen to be in London this weekend, eco-brand People Tree is running a 'Sample Sale for Japan' until March 27 (near Aldgate East), with all proceeds going towards 'The Second Harvest Charity', which will provide food for the victims of the recent earthquake/tsunami in Japan.
