After months of waiting, we finally have a sneak peek at the first Gambit trailer. The remake of the classic heist-movie, is about private art curator Harry Deane who devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England’s richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII. Gambit stars Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz and Alan Rickman. The first trailer, that premiered yesterday on British TV, isn’t the full version but I’m sure we’ll get the whole preview soon. For now – enjoy!
British newspaper The Sun reports that Cameron Diaz recently shot a sex scene with actor Javier Bardem for The Counselor. According to a source on set, they filmed it on the bonnet of a yellow Ferrari at Stoke Park golf course in Buckinghamshire, England. An ex-SAS squad and dog unit were apparently carefully positioned around the course and in the trees to ensure passers-by or fans couldn’t see what was going on. Modesty screens were also put up around the set for the midnight shoot on Tuesday. According to the same source “it was like a military operation. Producers had thought of everything to stop any intruders possibly getting a glimpse.”
Cameron’s latest film, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, is released on Blu-ray and DVD today! The romantic comedy based on the book with the same name hit theaters early May this year, and is a hilarious and heartfelt comedy about five couples whose intertwined lives are turned upside down by the challenges of impending parenthood. The film stars Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Chace Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, Ben Falcone and Joe Manganiello.

According to British newspaper/tabloid The Sun, Cameron Diaz has a cheetah as a pet in The Counselor, and actually became friends with the large cat as well. A source told the magazine: ”When Cameron first started working with the cheetah it was strutting about like it owned the place. But now she’s wearing the trousers. It has taken a shine to her, which is good because they’ve had to shoot a number of scenes together, including a set-up where they shared a bed.” While there was a risk of Cameron getting bitten by the dangerous animal, there were handlers on hand at all times to supervise what was happening. Producers were also worried about damage to Skywood House in Middlesex, Southern England – a modernist home designed by architect Graham Phillips – the big cat could potentially cause. The source added ”the specialist animal handlers have been close by in case the cheetah gets a bit carried away. The building is pristine and the furniture is worth a lot of money, so the potential is there for it to do a lot of damage.” The Counselor is a drug dealer drama which also stars Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. It’s based on the screenplay by Cormac McCarthy, and directed by Ridley Scott.
Yesterday, Cameron Diaz was once again photographed on the set of The Counselor in London, England. She’s playing the character Malkina in Ridley Scott’s drama about a lawyer finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking. The film, written by Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men, The Road), also stars Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. Quite a cast, huh? Two pictures of Cameron walking on the set have been added to our photo gallery.
