|What Keeps China Up
|AS China prepares for a leadership
transition next month,
problems are mounting: slowing
economic growth, the political
fallout from the Bo Xilai affair
and destabilising social problems.
Chinese leaders find it hard to know
what ordinary people really think.
For four years.

JESSICA Chastain has turned up

for imagining that with her

says Saldana |
|ACTRESS Zoe Saldana says it is essential for actors to strike the right chemistry for a love story on screen, and admits she could do so comfortably with Bradley Cooper in The Words. "I´ve always said that when you watch movies and a love story falls short of what you wanted it to be, as an actor, as a person who works in films, you know that 90 percent of the time it didn´t work is because there was no chemistry, they didn´t work out a friendship, they didn´t feel safe around each other, they weren´t communicating properly," hollywoodreporter.com quoted Saldana as saying. That wasn´t the case on the set of their new film, she said. "Bradley is a very dedicated and open professional. It´s really good when ...|
not ready for
children, yet |
|Actress Keira Knightley is amused at rumours that she is pregnant. She says although she would love to have children, it was not yet time. The Anna Karenina actress, who is engaged to Klaxons musician James Righton, admits regular questions about pregnancy have made her worry about her figure. "People keep trying to make me pregnant!

|Ask me about work,
not affairs: Ranbir |
|ACTOR Ranbir Kapoor only wants to talk about his work, not his link-ups. The popular actor was left angry at an event recently when he was asked about link-ups with his co-actresses, and about his equation with Barfi! co-star Ileana D´Cruz. "See, my motive is to let my film talk. I don´t tell others to write about my affairs nor do I decide it. I work hard. In Barfi also I have worked hard," Ranbir told reporters. "If your question is how did I feel working with Anurag Basu, then I will respect you. But if you ask me questions like ´Why did I not have an affair with Ileana?´, then you will lose respect. So I´d like you to ask me questions about my work, not about my affairs," added the 29-year-old. Promotions for Barfi!, releasing on ... |
