Dianna Agron Talks Kissing Alex Pettyfer in 'I Am Number Four'


October 11, 2010 10:06:15 GMT


Just Jared has got a chance to visit the set of "I Am Number Four" and Dianna Agron has shared the filming of her kissing scene with co-star Alex Pettyfer. "Well you've seen Alex. He's not hard to look at but it is interesting because you're in front of this crew which no matter how close you are to them, it's still a little awkward," she claimed. "I always space out and I don't even know what's going on."

The blonde babe also revealed that the smooching scene was the first one filmed for the movie and she has her own thought about that. "That's what came first. For some reason - Actually I kind of have a theory on why that is - Kissing scenes typically come first or very near the beginning of filming. I think it's because if things go terribly wrong people might not like each other and it might be really difficult to make that believable," she explained.

October 11, 2010 09:08:15 GMT


Julia Stiles' character on "Dexter" will start to play out in next week's episode which is called "Beauty and the Beast". We find out this week [Spoiler Alert] that one of Boyd's unkilled victims has witnessed Dexter taking the serial killer's life. She, who is none other than Stiles' character, is strangely named Lumen.

Exec producer John Goldwyn explained the choice of name in an interview with Zap2It, saying "That's just her name. I think it's Lumen Ann Pierce. I think 'lumen' is the Latin word for light. Maybe that was [writer/prod Chip Johannessen's] metaphorical thing going on with her name. It's an unusual name. The significance of that can't be lost on what's going on with her character. It's never referenced on the show. No one ever makes a point of saying anything about that."

Top officers in Miami's Police Department have been forced to pull parts of its website after images of rap superstar Jay-Z were used in a banner urging members of the public to report gang activity. A banner on the site, showing animated 'gangsters', appeared alongside the caption 'Report Gang Activity'.

However, police IT bosses were left red-faced when it was discovered the images were actually of the "99 Problems" hitmaker, which he used as publicity snaps almost a decade ago. Officials at the police department have now taken down the banner, and insisted the use of Jay-Z's likeness was a "mistake".
