Bad news already from the Star Wars: Episode VII set: Harrison Ford was injured yesterday when he was hit by a falling hydraulic door. He was taken to hospital for further treatment and should be okay, though he will miss an unknown amount of filming due to a fractured ankle.
From The Telegraph:
The actor was at Pinewood studios in Buckinghamshire when a hydraulic door fell down and hit him as he began work on Star Wars: Episode VII.
Mr Ford, 71, who also played Indiana Jones, was immediately assessed by medics on the M Stage at the studios close to spaceship, the Millennium Falcon, and he was taken by stretcher onto a helicopter for further treatment.
A spokeswoman for South Central Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 4.24pm to Pinewood to reports of a 71-year-old male who had sustained an injury to his ankle from a door that had fallen.”
Mr Ford was taken by air ambulance to the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford with a suspected fracture in his ankle. It is understood he has no major chest injuries but is awaiting results of further tests.
A spokesman for franchise owner Disney, said: “Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care.
“Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates.”
Glad to hear that his injuries weren’t too serious, but nevertheless, film sets are dangerous, especially when you’re working with so much high-tech equipment that can go wrong so easily.

Adam Levine will soon be tying the knot with girlfriend Behati Prinsloo, but I think we are all aware that the man has had his share of douchebag days and weird/messed up relationships – and that’s just what’s been reported in the media. However, he’s ready to make a change now, turn over a new leaf so to speak, and he wants to make amends with all those he’s wronged before he walks down the aisle, apparently.
“He apologized for how he treated them,” the insider says of the model-loving Voice mentor, whose former flames include catwalkers Anne Vyalitsyna and Nina Agdal. (Levine famously ended his months-long fling with Agdal by ignoring her calls and then breaking the news of his and Prinsloo’s engagement via text message.)
Another source tells Us, however, that the ladies aren’t quite so keen to let him off the hook. “They couldn’t care less he wants to make it right,” the second insider says.
Those failed efforts aside, Levine has another idea to show what a changed man he is—and it involves his fiancee, Victoria’s Secret Angel Prinsloo, 25.
“He may get a tattoo of Behati’s name over his heart,” a third source reveals of the serial dater, who once publicly claimed he wasn’t the marrying type. “He wants to make their love permanent on his body!”
I mean, it all seems kind of bizarre, to be honest. It’s… nice (?) I guess that he realizes he was a dick, but why not leave well enough alone? What’s the point of ringing these girls up, like, “Well I’m getting married to a girl who isn’t you, but sorry I treated you like shit when we were together”?? I would just sit there silently, like, “Yeah, and?”
IF this is actually happening – and this one does indeed sound made up simply because of the sheer stupidity involved – then I think Adam needs to reevaluate his choices.

Naya Rivera got canned from Glee for being insane in the membrane, but that hasn’t stopped her from continuing to pretend that she’s still doing a-okay and getting lots of work. She stripped down to a swimsuit for the new issue of Galore magazine (whatever the hell that even is) and told the publication that she has “a lot of things” going on that she “can’t really confirm” but that she’s super excited about all these unnamed (read: nonexistent) things.
Did I hear you have an album dropping this summer?
We are kind of halting production on the album because there are so many things going on. Politics got involved so I’ve been putting it on the back burner; there are a lot of things that I’m doing that I’m excited about.
What are the other things you’re excited about?
Finishing this season of Glee and a lot of other things like photo shoots and things I can’t really confirm.
Okay, girl, I’mma let that go and just pretend you’re telling the truth.
Naya also talked about how the best thing a girl can have for summer is a bikini and a tan, which… you know, fair enough. She also really likes Pharrell’s new album and talked about some swimsuit brand that she really likes. But look, homegirl has nothing all that interesting to talk about, so just look at the photos, instead.

Lindsay Lohan has been spending a lot of time over here in the UK recently, and has been apparently considering a move to London full-time, which is hilarious and also confusing because I didn’t realize it would be easy for convicted criminals to country hop like that – especially broke criminals.
Anyhow, apparently this move is pretty much certain to happen because Lindsay thinks it’s all America’s fault that she’s in so much trouble because you guys are such meanies and you’re always “out to get her”.
From Radar Online:
“Lindsay’s convinced everyone in America is out to get her, but she’s had the opposite experience in London,” a source said. “She loves British culture and says people have treated her with respect for the first time in years. Now she’s looking into the immigration process and planning a full-time relocation.”
But Lohan’s behavior in London has so far seemed to be just as troublesome as in her home country.
As Radar exclusively reported, Lohan, 27, was recently seen out partying ‘til the wee hours of the British morning and a source said she has “fallen of the wagon” again—while convincing those around her she’s still clean and sober.
Lohan hit up London’s top hotspots in June, and a source close to her told Radar that sobriety is a daily struggle – at which she hasn’t always been successful.
In addition, back in America the scandal-plagued actress has tax and money problems “coming out of her ears,” said the source, “while in London, she’s had a bunch of business meetings about modeling and TV gigs and for the first time in months things are looking up.”
LOL, I can’t with this girl. She honestly thinks she’s going to get her career back and booming the way it was before she went completely off the rails with drugs and alcohol, and she’s going to do it while… still drunk and high all the time? You’ve got to be kidding me. Also, surprise! The US government will still pursue your ass for tax and money issues when you owe thousands/millions like she probably does. Moving to another country won’t fix your problems, especially if you ever plan on setting foot back in the US again.
She’ll never learn.

Mila Kunis seems pretty chill – I’ve always liked how she’s come across in interviews and while I don’t think she has the most impressive acting resumé, I’m probably just not the target audience for her projects, and that’s cool. Anyhow, she’s been keeping an extra low profile now that she’s pregnant with Ashton Kutcher‘s kid, so it’s nice to see her giving an interview and putting dudes in their places.
That’s right, Mila is sick of men saying “We’re pregnant!” when telling others that they and their partners are expecting a baby. Turns out, you don’t get to say that shit since you’re not the one carrying the baby and growing it inside your body for nine months.
As Mila so eloquently put it on Jimmy Kimmel Live, “Do you have to squeeze a watermelon-sized person out of your lady hole? No.”
Obviously this was done for comedic effect, but I’m sure there is a bit of serious annoyance in there somewhere… especially when you’re swollen and uncomfortable and making a person. Never having had a baby (and never planning to), I can’t say for sure – what do you think, moms of Evil Beet?
