Zeta-jones jealous of husband’s kiss

London: Chicago star Catherine Zeta-Jones is jealous that her husband actor Michael Douglas got to kiss his co-star Matt Damon in their upcoming movie 'Behind The Candelabra'.

The 43-year-old Welsh actress talked about her man’s new flamboyant role as Liberace on The Ellen DeGeneres show.

“I know if my husband's going to kiss anyone let it be Matt Damon. I have never kissed Matt Damon. I’m so jealous,” Zeta-Jones said.

The actress then recalled the moment she once told Douglas that she was sharing a passionate embrace with former co-star Brad Pitt.

She said that despite Pitt being one of the most hottest actors in the industry, Douglas was incredibly supportive.  PTI http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/Popup/2013/1/01_02_13-metro16b.jpg


Thinking like a superhero works

London: Acting the part of a superhero makes people more likely to behave like one in real life.

Robin Rosenberg and colleagues at Stanford University in the US created a virtual reality environment, in which volunteers had the ability to fly through the air like Superman or rode as passengers in a helicopter.

They were then assigned one of two tasks: help find a missing diabetic child or tour a virtual city.  http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/Popup/2013/1/01_02_13-metro16.jpg

The researchers explain that regardless of which task they performed, “Participants who were given the power to fly like Superman in virtual reality were more helpful afterward, out of virtual reality, compared to participants who were passengers in a helicopter in virtual reality.”  ANI
