Freeze frame: Anna Faris, Chris Evans, Shahid Kapoor
Anna Faris, who was married to The Guardians of Galaxy star Chris Pratt, says she has made a conscious effort to stay away from social media chatter surrounding her personal life. The 41-year-old actress, who announced her separation from Pratt last August, says she realised after a point of time that she does not need to know everything that is being talked about her online. “I think that I just sort of learned to not Google myself, and when my sweet assistant is like, ‘Look what just popped up.’ I’m like, ‘I love you but I don’t know if I need to know everything’,” Faris told Marie Claire magazine.
Chris Evans is set to headline upcoming disaster thriller Greenland. He will feature in the film, to be helmed by sci-fi specialist Neill Blomkamp, EW reported. The details of the plot are little known but the film is said to centre on “one family’s fight for survival in the face of a cataclysmic natural disaster”.
Director Vikramaditya Motwane has revealed Shahid Kapoor was initially in talks for Bhavesh Joshi. Actors like Imran Khan and Sidharth Malhotra were also being sought for the superhero-vigilante film, which now features Harshvardhan Kapoor in the lead. “We spoke to Shahid, but it was very briefly... For this film, casting went through a lot of changes… With Imran it was like, his career wasn’t going well and we couldn’t raise the money. I am quite sad about it. With Sidharth, it just fell apart. With Shahid, it was just a conversation, it was never formulated,” Motwane told PTI.
