July 17, 2014 02:02:48 GMT


Jillian Michaels parted ways with "The Biggest Loser" for the third time last month as announced in a statement released by NBC. Now, she has opened up about the reason why she really left the reality series.

"There were some fundamental differences [with the show's producers] that have existed for a while," she tells People magazine. Detailing it, she claims that the show's principle has now changed. "In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love," she says, adding that in more recent episodes, "You saw none of the relationships, none of the bonds that I build with my clients."

First Look of 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Villain and Its Army Shared

July 17, 2014 00:56:28 GMT


The big bad foe in the highly-anticipated "Avengers: Age of Ultron" stays true to the comic book. The first look of Ultron is shared on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's 2014 San Diego Comic-Con issue, along with upgraded look of Iron Man and Captain America.

James Spader was chosen to play the robot villain through stop-motion technology. "He's a very unique and incredibly exciting and unpredictable actor," Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said of Spader. "And Ultron in the comics is a robot, but what's cool about him in the comics - and certainly how Joss Whedon is interpreting him for the movie - is that he is much more than just a robot. That he's infused with much character. And I don't want to say too much, but you can imagine James Spader will be very dynamic in his portrayal of the character."
