Justin Bieber Admits: ‘I Was Disappointed in Myself’

ABC/Kelsey McNeal(NEW YORK) — Justin Bieber knows he can do better.

Now, the pop star is taking steps to right the wrongs of his rebellious past.

“I was rebelling a little bit,” he told Seventeen magazine of his younger years. “I was getting cockier and cockier. I didn’t have people to check me. I looked back and I was disappointed in myself.”

Over the past few months, Bieber has been trying to make amends for his bad decisions. His apology tour included heartfelt confessions on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and a Comedy Central roast that allowed him to poke fun at himself.

“You have to own up to the mistakes,” he told Seventeen. “You have to say, I’m sorry if I’ve let you down. I always want to be honest and let people know that those mistakes aren’t who I am. Who I am is someone who really cares about people.”

He also says he no longer seeks approval on social media. “For a while, I was busy looking at my Instagram likes, and if a post didn’t get a certain amount, I was like, ‘Aw, they didn’t like the photo,’” he said. “But there’s always a choice: You can let Instagram or stuff on the Internet affect your day, or you can choose to not be bothered by it.”

The singer now realizes he needs to surround himself with the right people.

“I need healthy relationships with people I can feel safe with,” he says. “People I can say whatever to, and I’m not going to be judged.”

Still, the singer reamined coy on his relationship status. But he knows exactly what he’s looking for in a partner.

“In a girl, I want someone who’s confident in herself and honest,” he said. “I have to find her very attractive and as someone I can see myself with for the rest of my life.”

“Sex and the City 3″: Hints that a New Film Is in the Works

Warner Bros. (New Line)(NEW YORK) — Could Sex and the City 3 be in the works? New photos seem to indicate that it might be.

Sarah Jessica Parker took to Instagram Monday to post a photo of herself outside of Bloomingdale’s in New York City, and hinted that she might be working on a new franchise film.

“Well. I guess the cat’s out of the (little brown) bag,” she wrote. “As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I’m under strict gag order until then.”

Parker, 50, last played Carrie Bradshaw in 2010’s Sex and the City 2. But in recent months, she and her castmates from the HBO series have been dropping hints that a third installment might be in the works.

In February 2014, Parker told Harper’s Bazaar that there had been no concrete discussions about a third film, but that she and producer Michael Patrick King “know what that story would be.”

Then, in October, after Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte York in the show, tweeted at Parker, the actress responded by asking Davis whether she’d “heard the news.” Maybe now we know what they were talking about?

A rep for Parker did not respond to a request for comment.

Report: Lindsay Lohan Completing Community Service at NYC Daycare Center

ABC News(NEW YORK) — Lindsay Lohan has chosen a New York City daycare center to serve the remainder of her court-ordered community service, a source tells TMZ.

The 28-year-old Mean Girls star has chosen the Duffield Children’s Center in Brooklyn, according to the source, and she’ll be spending the better part of the next few weeks there.

Lindsay has completed less than 10 of the required 125 hours of community service and has until May 28 to finish or face possible jail time. She would theoretically have to work seven hours a day, seven days a week to meet the deadline.

Sources at the children’s center tell TMZ that Lindsay will help kids with arts and crafts and reading and she’ll also do administrative work. The actress has worked at the center before and staffers are reportedly happy to have her back.

Lindsay, who had been living in the U.K. since appearing in the London production of Speed the Plow, posted a picture of herself and an unidentified person on Instagram Monday captioned, “Happy to be home in nyc with my family and friends. Missed this place. ready to help.”

Lohan was ordered to perform community service as part of her sentence for the 2012 case involving her crash with a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway.

“Incredibles 2” Is Next for “Tomorrowland’s” Brad Bird; Confirms “Star Wars” Talks, “Iron Giant” Re-Release Rumors

Jesse Grant/Getty Images for Disney(NEW YORK) — In an interview with Collider to promote his upcoming George Clooney Disney adventure Tomorrowland, writer-director Brad Bird confirmed one of his biggest hits, The Incredibles, is finally getting a sequel.

Explaining that he’s got “a bunch of pages,” for a follow up to the Oscar winning Pixar superhero movie, the Simpsons veteran and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol director explained, “I had a lot of ideas for the original Incredibles that I didn’t get a chance to use,” adding, “There are new ideas I have, and I think there are enough of those together to make an interesting movie.”

As for Star Wars, lifelong fan Bird confirmed there was interest in having him come aboard, even though J.J. Abrams landed the Force Awakens gig. Bird tells Collider he met with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy about the job, explaining, “J.J. got very excited about the notion of shaping the next trilogy, and that idea was interesting to me too,” however, the busy filmmaker said an Incredibles sequel will keep him too busy for now.

He then laughed, “Yeah, in fact just avoid all this Star Wars stuff. Everybody’s feeding too much on that anyway.”

Bird’s first theatrical movie, 1999’s The Iron Giant, about an awkward kid who befriends a giant robot from space — who spoke in Groot-like monosyllables by none other than Groot himself, Vin Diesel — didn’t stun at the box office, but it became a beloved cult hit.

Bird says the movie may find a new audience with a theatrical re-release: maybe. “Warner Bros. and I have danced on and off for the last decade,” he explained, adding, “Discussions keep happening, but I think something will happen fairly soon. They know that people have a fondness for it. They don’t know exactly how to deal with that beyond maybe a Blu-ray or something like that. And I keep saying, ‘You know, you did [a re-release] for Wizard of Oz and you did it for Blade Runner. I think you actually can do it.’ And I think they’re kind of coming around to that idea.”

Tomorrowland
opens May 22. Lucasfilm and Pixar are owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

Rob Lowe Celebrates 25 Years of Sobriety

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Rob Lowe celebrated an anniversary Sunday: twenty-five years sober.

The actor announced the news in a tweet, writing: “To those struggling with addiction, there is true, real, hope. Twenty-five years ago today, I found recovery and a life of promise. #Grateful.”

Lowe opened up about his struggles with addiction in his 2011 autobiography, Stories I Only Tell My Friends. He also spoke about his past struggles last year when he explained how his wife Sheryl helped him clean up. The two wed in 1991.

“[I] was attempting my first try at monogamy — which was not really in my nature at the time — and I wasn’t able to do it,” he told Haute Living last September. “It made me examine how I was living my life. That led to me getting sober, which led to me changing my life — giving me everything I now have.”

With the milestone behind him, Lowe is set to star in a new Fox legal drama, The Grinder. According to Deadline, the series stars Lowe as a popular TV lawyer whose series is coming to an end. Finding himself at a crossroads, he moves back home to his small town to take over the family law firm. Fred Savage stars as his brother.

Fox Reveals 2015-2016 Schedule

“Minority Report” – Bruce Macaulay/FOX(NEW YORK) — Fox announced its 2015-2016 schedule Monday, with much of the talk centered on the impending end of American Idol.

As you’ve probably heard by now, the singing competition will return for its 15th and final season in January.

Several Fox shows won’t have the opportunity for a swan song. The Mindy Project was cancelled, though it’s rumored to be headed to Hulu. Backstrom, Red Band Society and The Following are a few of the other programs to get the axe.

Scream Queens is part of an all-new Tuesday-night lineup that also includes Grandfathered, a comedy starring John Stamos as a bachelor who discovers he’s both a father and a grandfather, and The Grinder, featuring Rob Lowe as a TV lawyer who joins his brother at a real-life law firm.

New Girl will be back Tuesday nights beginning in January.

A small-screen version of the movie Minority Report will air Monday nights, and the drama Rosewood, with Morris Chestnut as a pathologist, will serve as a lead-in to Empire Wednesday nights. Empire will welcome Chris Rock, Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz as guest stars during its second season.

The X-Files revival will premiere Jan. 24. A week later, Fox will debut its live production of Grease, starring Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens.

Midseason entries include The Frankenstein Code and the DC Comics-inspired Lucifer.

Why George Clooney Thinks His Wife Amal Clooney’s Work Is More Important

Photo by Joe Scarnici/WireImage(NEW YORK) — Having a world-famous spouse can be intimidating — even if you’re George Clooney.

In talking about his upcoming film, Tomorrowland, Clooney spoke to Nightline about his new wife, Amal Clooney, a British international human rights attorney, and how even discussing each other’s day can turn into an interesting conversation.

“I was shooting [a movie] in New York … and I come home after wearing a bomb vest all day, and my wife has just come back from Strasbourg where she was in the middle of a trial over the Armenian genocide with the International Court of Appeals and asks me about my day, and I say, ‘Yeah, I had a fake bomb,’ and everything she does has actual consequence,” Clooney said.

Clooney and his wife captured the world’s attention last September when they arrived in Venice, Italy, for their star-studded wedding. Paparazzi and fans swarmed around the couple when they took a short motorboat ride along the canals from the Belmond Hotel Cipriani to the Aman Canal Grande Venice resort, where they celebrated their big day.

“We had not told anyone we were getting married but you have to post a thing in the paper,” Clooney said. “And we get in the boats and headed down the Cipriani, down the Grande Canal, and it was just thousands of people and it was crazy… and I thought, ‘This is what it’s going be like for the next three days.’”

Then Clooney suggested he and his new bride embrace the fervor, saying, “I was like, ‘Let’s just stand up,’ and we were waving at people.”

But Clooney said he was happy his wedding day was able to bring some happiness to others too.

“It was right in the middle of the Ebola scare and everything else, there was all this bad news, and people were in a good mood for that and it made it fun for all of us,” he said.

“It’s kind of like the theme of this film,” Clooney continued, referring to Tomorrowland.

Tomorrowland is a movie that defies categorization. Eagerly anticipated yet highly secretive, it tells the story of a parallel world, an image of an ideal future from a 1964 perspective, with hovering monorails and leather suits, not the future we’re in now with Twitter, which Clooney said he refuses to use.

“I think that it is the dumbest thing a famous actor could do, because there is nothing to gain from it,” Clooney said. “More people won’t go see your movie. If they did then Kim Kardashian would be the biggest movie star in the world. Honestly.”

“For me, the only thing that could happen is bad. Right? I have two drinks, I go home, and make a Mother Teresa joke, and I wake up and my career is over,” he joked.

In Tomorrowland, Clooney plays Frank Walker, a disillusioned dreamer in what director Brad Bird describes as a sci-fi action adventure road movie fable made by the Walt Disney Co., the parent company of ABC News. Clooney stars alongside 12-year-old Raffey Cassidy, who plays a kind of dark Disney character called Athena.

“I grew up on Walt Disney-produced films, when he was alive, and there was darkness, parts of Pinocchio that was scary…Captain Nemo is a haunted guy,” Bird said. “Disney was in love with storytelling, even his amusement park, that had a big impact, that’s what I called upon.”

Country music star Tim McGraw plays the father of Britt Robertson, an optimistic dreamer recruited to save Earth. Robertson told Nightline that she very much wanted this role.

“I sent in tapes, audition tapes. They brought me in for the casting director, then I auditioned for Brad and I went back in for the casting director, I went back in for Brad, he didn’t remember me at all,” Robertson said, laughing.

Tomorrowland hits theaters nationwide on Friday, May 22.
