Actor Jason Momoa, who shot to fame as Khal Drogo of Game of Thrones, says he is excited about his standalone Aquaman movie as he wants to watch it with his children.

The actor, who is married to Lisa Bonet and has two children, also admitted that he hasn’t “made too many movies” that his children could watch.

Talking about the film, Momoa said: “We’ve never seen an epic adventure under the ocean like this, and we haven’t seen an undersea world like the one we’re creating in the movie. I’m already excited to watch the movie with my children, and for other kids to see it. My son plays with Batman non-stop and it’ll be cool to see what he thinks now that there are Aquaman action figures. I haven’t made too many movies that my children have gotten to watch, so I’m really looking forward to that.”



Deepika Padukone on Tuesday sought to brush away the matter of her remuneration for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, which is reportedly more than co-stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, saying she was “comfortable” with what she got.

“Talking about my remuneration is not exciting for me. I am confident and comfortable with what I am paid,” she said at the 3D version trailer launch of the upcoming film.

“But let me tell you something and this is something I am really proud of is the fact that people like them (co-producer Viacom and director Bhansali) have invested this kind of money on a film like this and poster like this…that for me is hugely encouraging… this is the biggest film that Indian cinema has seen not in just terms of scale but in terms of budget and resources, and what is the poster behind it? For me that is the turning point for Indian cinema,” she added.


A teenage barman has claimed Kevin Spacey flashed him when he worked in a hotel bar and then gave him his £5,000 watch to hush him up.

Amid sexual allegations brought against actor Kevin Spacey, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences withdrew an honour scheduled to be conferred on him, while Netflix said it will be ending his House of Cards show.
