Schwarzenegger may return to acting



Get your lowdown on what's happening in Hollywood, right here!

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has now completed a seven-year term as the Governor of California, has hinted that he may return to acting.

The Terminator actor hinted that he has a list of things he 'can do' but has not committed to anything completely.

'The list is a long list of things I can do, but nothing I can concentrate on until I am literally, totally out of office,' Contactmusic quoted Schwarzenegger as telling Variety.

'For me the joy of life is not to know, and you get into it and you kind of figure it out. I love that. I don't like safety nets. I am not a believer in that,' he added.

After leaving his acting career for politics, the 63-year-old played cameos in two movies, The Expendables and Around the World in 80 Days.

Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds rang in the New Year together in a friendly celebration at Texas along with a few close friends, fuelling rumours of a romantic relationship between the two.

A rep for the actress confirmed that The Proposal co-stars partied with pals at Bullock's restaurant in Austin.

'A group of old friends that included Ryan and Sandra spent New Year's together at Sandra's restaurant Bess Bistro,' her rep told People mag.

'They all had a great time ringing in the New Year as they have in the past... as nothing more than friends,' the rep added.

Despite speculation, a source close to Reynolds echoed the sentiment that there was nothing romantic between the two.

Harry Potter star Tom Felton soaks up the sun after 10-year tan ban

Actor Tom Felton, who played deathly pale villain Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, was seen soaking up the sun on a Miami beach after he was forbidden from getting a tan for 10 years.

Felton, 23, enjoyed the sunshine as he sat on the beach with his girlfriend Jade Olivia, who was dressed in shorts and a black T-shirt.

The actor said in November that he did not get much of a chance to pursue other prospects or keep his natural looks because of the wizard franchise.

'For the past decade, we haven't had much freedom to do other projects,' the Daily Mail quoted him as having said. 'I certainly haven't had much freedom to keep my own hair colour, or lay in the sun, or do anything remotely dangerous like skiing. It was nice to go on holiday and not have to slap on the SPF50 and sit under an umbrella with three caps on.'

Swank's diet for Million Dollar Baby caused her mercury poisoning

Hilary Swank used to be a vegetarian, but she had to gorge on fish to prepare for her role of a female fighter in the movie Million Dollar Baby, which left her body riddled with mercury poisoning.

The double-Oscar winner, 36, needed a protein-packed diet to build up her strength during filming of the 2004 movie.

So she began devouring huge quantities of fish, leaving her with dangerously high levels of mercury in her blood.

After struggling to get her body back on track, Swank was forced to go back to her vegetarian diet.

'I put on 19 pounds of muscle: I was 29, I was a vegetarian and suddenly I was eating so much fish that I got elevated mercury problems,' the Daily Star quoted her as telling You magazine.

'It plagued me for a couple of years after that movie. When I discovered that my health was suffering, I had to change my diet. So now I eat pork and beef.'
