Arnie spotted wearing 'I Survived Maria' t-shirt



Arnold Schwarzenegger seems to be looking at the funny side of things after separating from his estranged wife Maria Shriver over his love child scandal.

The Terminator star was recently spotted wearing an old white tee shirt with the phrase 'I Survived Maria' and with the dates of their relationship '1977-2010' on the back, reported TMZ.

According to a source, Shriver's staff gave him the shirt as a lighthearted joke last year.

'It was a gag gift. Arnold and Maria are still talking every day, so he probably didn't even think of the shirt the way the media is,' the New York Daily News quoted his rep as saying.

The tees were printed with the dates of Schwarzenegger's tenure as California's governor but the staff jokingly crossed out the 2007 date with pen and replaced it with 1977.

The iconic 1987 film Dirty Dancing is getting a remake, film studio Lionsgate has announced.

The beloved coming of age movie, starring the late Patrick Swayze as smoldering dance teacher Johnny Castle in a forbidden romance with teenager Jennifer Grey as Frances 'Baby' Houseman, will be modernised for a new generation, producers have said.

Kenny Ortega, the film's original choreographer and the director of the Michael Jackson concert movie This Is It and High School Musical, will direct the new version, which has not yet been cast.

'Amazingly it has been almost 25 years since the original film was released, but the fans remain legion, and engaged more than ever with a brand that is special and vital to them,' the Telegraph quoted Lionsgate film group president Joe Drake as saying in a statement.

'We believe that the timing couldn't be better to modernize this story on the big screen, and we are proud to have Kenny Ortega at the helm,' they added.

Daniel Craig: I'd be a disaster in a romantic comedy

Prev     Next


Daniel Craig has revealed that he does not think it would be a good idea for him to appear in a romantic comedy movie, as he would be a complete 'disaster'.

But he does admit he would like to see a little more humour in the forthcoming 23 James Bond film, which will be directed by Sam Mendes.

'I'm not about to do a rom-com. It would be a disaster,' Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

'Good movies aren't just funny. Good movies aren't just sad. Good movies aren't just serious. They're all of those f**king things. 'The humour has to come from truth, at how ridiculous the situations are. If it's just gags for the sake of gags, I'm not interested in that. I want to get the wryness back into it,' he added.

Ashton Kutcher has received a warm welcome from the cast and crew of Two and A Half Men.

The 30-year-old star has replaced Charlie Sheen on the CBS sitcom, after a public argument with the show's creator Chuck Lorre and Nina Tassler.

However, Ashton has managed to get on well with the cast and crew of the set, despite rehearsals being a 'little rocky'. 'The taping went really well. No one mentioned Charlie,' Contactmusic quoted a source as saying.

'It was a little bit rocky during rehearsal, to film without Charlie. He was such a big part of the show. The cast and crew miss Charlie, they do. There was a relationship there. [But] They're welcoming Ashton with open arms,' the source added.
