"American Sniper": How Bradley Cooper Always Stayed in Character On Set

Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures(NEW YORK) -- Bradley Cooper recently earned an Oscar nod for his portrayal of Chris Kyle and for good reason.

Not only did Cooper pack on 40 pounds for the role, he also got Kyle's accent down.

In fact, Ben Reed, who played Kyle's father in the film, said Cooper, 40, as far as he knows, always kept the Texas accent going when he was on set.

Reed, 49, and Cooper got to interact during Kyle's wedding scene and Reed said he got to talk with Cooper quite a bit for that.

"He always kept the accent going," Reed told ABC News. "I like to do that too, because it's tough going in and out of an accent. You just want to stay with it the whole time and just keep talking as your character. Then when the clock goes off and the alarm goes off and you are done with work, get out of it."

He continued, "I wasn't around after work was over, but I want to say that he stayed in character with that accent the entire time he was shooting the movie."

Reed also said Cooper was a producer on the film and "was always around, always on the set, making sure everything was smooth."

Clint Eastwood directed the film and Reed said the culture on set was something he's not used to.

"It was so calm and so quiet," he said. "A lot of sets I'm on they are just loud and there's banging. It was like everything was almost in a whisper. I don't know if that's because Clint's been working with these guys for 25 years but as an actor, there's no distractions. You can stay in character and really work on your craft. I appreciated that."

Reed's been in touch with executive producer Rob Lawrence, who works with director Clint Eastwood directly, and said "they are over the top appreciative of how the movie has been accepted."

As for controversies like the fake baby, Reed laughed that off.

"Why is that a controversy?" he said. "The one baby was sick. The one baby didn't show up, Clint said, 'Grab the doll, let's do this.' He's not gonna wait a half a day to get another baby in. Why is that even a topic."

Taylor Swift Ends the 'Mystery,' Shows Bellybutton in Instagram Photo

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) --  Pop superstar Taylor Swift put an end to one mystery this weekend, posting an Instagram picture of herself wearing a swimsuit that revealed her belly button.

Taken in Hawaii, Swift posed with the members of the band Haim.

Greetings from Maui! @haimtheband

A photo posted by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

The "1989" singer had previously told Lucky Magazine she planned on keeping her belly button covered for the time being.

"I don't like showing my belly button. When you start showing your belly button then you're really committing to the midriff thing. I only partially commit to the midriff thing -- you're only seeing lower rib cage," she told the magazine. "I don't want people to know if I have one or not ... I want that to be a mystery."

No word on how the Haim sisters finally conviced Swift that she could really fully commit to "the midriff thing."

"American Sniper" Actor Ben Reed Reveals Reaction He Gets From US Soldiers

Photo by Vivien Killilea/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- American Sniper is not only a record-breaking film, it's also a movie that started a dialogue about the war in Iraq and the American military in general -- one that Ben Reed is "glad to be a part of."

The veteran actor plays Wayne Kyle in the film, Chris Kyle's father.

Despite any controversy that the movie may have generated, Reed, 49, said he's only gotten positive reactions, especially from vets. Meanwhile, the film set box office records for the highest grossing opening ever in January.

"A lot of soldiers have come up to me just said they loved the movie and loved how Chris Kyle was portrayed," Reed told ABC News. "They loved how we showed families and soldiers dealing with PTSD. Coming back home and trying to deal with fitting back into society. It's tough on the soldiers. They've just been very appreciate of the message American Sniper is presenting."

He continued, "It is a true story of a true American hero. I think it just hits home with a lot of people."

Reed also said the reactions he's gotten from Sienna Miller's performance as Taya, Kyle's wife, has been nothing short of inspiring.

"A lot of women come up to me and loved the way she portrayed Taya, just dealing with all the stuff at home, it just really touches a lot of people's hearts," the actor said.

In fact, Reed's been in touch with executive producer Rob Lawrence, who works with director Clint Eastwood directly, and said "they are over the top appreciative of how the movie has been accepted."

Reed is just enjoying the success of the film and not worrying about any critics of the movie or the story.

"There was no feeling on the set that this was going to be a controversy," Reed said. "We are telling a story about a young man who was a great American and a great patriot. He was a great soldier, had real life situations with his family. People that have come out and been negative. ... I think they are going to regret expressing themselves in the way they did, because you have a lot of Americans aware of this film and a lot of Americans who know Chris Kyle's story and the way he lived and the way he died ... this is a real man's life."

Jennifer Lopez Talks of Time 'My Life Was Falling Apart'

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) -- The time surrounding Jennifer Lopez's movie Gigli in 2003 might have been the worst in her life, she said.

The singer and actress was dating co-star Ben Affleck, which eventually ended, and the movie was one of the biggest flops of all time.

Lopez said she is happy now and starring in a new movie, The Boy Next Door, but took time to reflect on her life a decade ago while talking with HuffPost Live.

"I think the worst, lowest point was the whole Gigli era," she said. "[It] was very tough."

She added, "It was a very badly reviewed film. I was in a high-profile relationship at the time that fell apart in a really bad way, and so the kind of mix of those two things -- the tabloid press had just come into existence at the time, so I was like a poster child for that moment."

In fact, she said, the stories that were in the magazines every week were "about how my life was falling apart. It was a tough time."

But now, Lopez, 45, said she couldn't be happier personally and professionally.

"I've never felt more control as an artist," she said. "[I] feel like I'm so much better than I was when I started and [I'm] able to express that as an artist."

Details of Prince William and Duchess Kate's Trip to the Caribbean

Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Prince William, Duchess Kate and Prince George have arrived in Mustique to enjoy a family holiday with Kate's parents.

This is 18-month-old Prince George's second international holiday and third trip abroad.

The couple, who generally take an annual trip to the Caribbean island famed for its privacy and beauty, will celebrate Carole Middleton's 60th birthday on January 31 along with Kate's siblings Pippa and James.

The Middleton family has rented Villa Aurora in Mustique in the past and it's believed they're there again. The stunning property, which rents for $20,000 a week, includes three bedrooms, a 45-foot swimming pool, private rock pool and a staff of five including a butler. The Daily Mirror reported that its likely Prince William and Kate and their personal protection team have rented an adjacent villa.

The island is among the most exclusive in the Caribbean with world famous Basil's Bar which has seen celebrity visitors from Mick Jagger to the queen's sister Princess Margaret. The island also boasts a no paparazzi policy, which allows the family to have some semblance of privacy, though pictures generally surface taken from yachts moored off the coast. Prince William and Kate are expected to enjoy the turquoise waters and white sandy beaches.

The duchess is known to take Prince George swimming in the Buckingham Palace pool. The toddler is said to love his swimming lessons with his mother.

Kate and William are extremely close to her parents and they were the first to visit them after Kate gave birth. The couple also stayed with them in Kate's family home in Bucklebury with Prince George in the weeks following his birth and recently invited her family to celebrate Christmas with them at their new country home Anmer Hall near the queen's Sandringham estate.

Kate is about six months along with her second child. She completed three days of engagements just last week and is expected to do several more when she returns from this vacation, which could last up to two weeks. She recently told well-wishers at an event in Notting Hill the new baby was making itself known, "moving all the time...I can feel it kicking," she added.

William and Kate have chosen to keep the baby's sex a surprise from them as they did with Prince George.

William is busy studying for exams to acquire his commercial pilot's license and is expected to become a member of the East Anglia Air Ambulance this spring. It'll be a busy time, as their baby, the fourth in line to the throne, is due in April.

Miley Cyrus Talks Being Face of MAC Viva Glam, Grammy Nomination

Michael Buckner/Getty Images for MAC Cosmetics(NEW YORK) -- Miley Cyrus is fresh off her worldwide tour, but she’s not slowing down. She’s joining the ranks of Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj as the new face of MAC cosmetic’s Viva Glam campaign.

The singer said on Friday's Good Morning America that she signed on to the campaign because she wants to empower "those even affected by HIV and to kind of give them this hope, and know that there's people out there who are fighting for them and especially not just for the cure, but to end this kind of stereotype."

All of the proceeds from sales of Miley's custom lipstick will go to the MAC AIDS Fund, which supports people affected by HIV and AIDS.

"I think it's fun for young people to get to buy a lipstick and know that it's going to actually go to changing the way that their future is going to be," Miley added.

Regardless of her reputation for twerking, humping foam fingers and posing topless, Miley considers herself a role model for young people.

"I am [a role model] for what I know of what is important to teach people -- and what is important to teach people is that...you can't judge other people," she said.

Along with joining the campaign, Miley is also gearing up to attend the Grammy Awards Feb. 8. The singer is nominated in the best pop vocal album category for Bangerz, but she doesn't think she'll take home a trophy.

"[It's] probably not gonna happen, but I'm stoked to go," she said.

Kanye West Reveals Why He Doesn't Smile

Larry Busacca/Getty Images for MTV(LOS ANGELES) -- Kanye West is not often photographed smiling. However, it's not because he's unhappy.

"Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything," West said in a speech at a fashion event on Thursday, according to E! News. "I looked at all these people's photos and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they weren't smiling and people, you know the paparazzi, always come up to me, 'Why you not smiling?' and I think, not smiling makes me smile. ...When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldn't look as cool."

West, 37, also discussed his love of clothes, explaining that "any time we create, we're an extension of doing [God's] work on earth." He added that everyone is considered a "fashion insider."

"Everyone has some form of fashion every single day," he said. "We have the power to change the world. I believe that through design, because design is the closest to truth, problem-solving truth is the closest to love, and love is the closest thing to God, and God is love."

However, E! noted, he did smile at one point during his address. Toward the end, he noted, "I don't know if I made one f***ing good point," and grinned.

What "American Sniper" Got Right and Wrong, According to SEAL

Keith Bernstein / Warner Bros.(LAS VEGAS) -- When Brandon Webb, a former Navy SEAL sniper instructor who helped train Chris Kyle, first watched American Sniper, he was disappointed in the movie about his former student and friend.

"I had high expectations and I have to say, when I first watched the movie, I felt really let down, for a number of reasons," Webb told ABC News Thursday. "It's hard to capture someone's life in two hours, and I get that, but I felt the film could have been, should have been, a military epic on the scale of a Saving Private Ryan."

But Webb said when he thought about it further and when the movie started a national conversation about the hardships of American troops in combat and at home, and their portrayal in Hollywood, he came to appreciate the film more.

Still, parts of the movie nagged at him. While attending a firearms expo in Las Vegas, Webb told ABC News what he thought American Sniper got right, and what it got wrong.

On Target: Chris Kyle, Impossible Decisions, Troubles at Home

The aspect of the Clint Eastwood film that struck Webb the hardest, he said, was Bradley Cooper's portrayal of Chris Kyle. Webb said he wasn't terribly close with Kyle while they were SEALs together, but after they each left the service, they became closer friends.

That's why it was surprising when Webb said that at certain points in the movie, he forgot that Cooper wasn't Kyle.

"There were moments in that film where I thought I was watching Chris on screen. So Bradley Cooper's performance, I thought he nailed it," Webb said.

Webb said that another part of the movie was right on: the dramatic, on-site calls that snipers sometimes have to make while looking down their scope.

In one scene, featured in trailers for American Sniper, an anguished Kyle watches as a child picks up a weapon, making the young boy a potential target.

Webb didn't discuss the moral implications of such decisions, but said that they are in the hands of the snipers themselves because they can react with the most "precision."

"The situations that Chris is put into as a sniper, having to make those judgment calls...this isn't President Obama ordering a drone strike that's potentially going to come with a lot of civilian casualties as a result of that, just as a collateral consequence, you have Chris making these decisions and really being a precision tool," Webb said.

He said the movie also accurately showed the struggles of some troops coming home.

"Chris coming home, and dealing with that, going back and forth from American to Iraq, seeing that effect play out in real life, has completely changed my opinion of the movie" for the better, Webb said.

Off the Mark: Technical, But Deadly Details, Sniper Training

When you've spent a chunk of your professional career as a military sniper, Webb says it's hard not to notice the little things that the average movie-goer wouldn't think about.

"That's the part where I'm critical," Webb said. "The basic stuff: a cover over your scope. Because we're really concerned, especially in an urban environment, about eliminating that [reflection]. You don't want to have a piece of glass that's a signal mirror on the battlefield...Here's one of the most deadly snipers in military history and he doesn't have a cover over his scope?"

Webb also took issue with the chunk of the movie that covered Kyle's sniper training. He realizes he's not objective when it comes to this, since he said he helped reinvent the program that the real-life Kyle actually went through, but he still thought the segment trivialized an incredibly physically and intellectually demanding course.

"[The movie version] was just very amateurish," he said. "I'm not saying let's give the world a look at exactly how the SEAL sniper program is, but it's one of the best programs in the world and I thought that [filmmakers should] at least give it that respect that the program produced this guy... You're going to show his training like it's a couple of rednecks plinking at cans in the back of a trailer? That's what it felt like to me."

"But I'm biased," he added.

As for the celebrity-spawned controversy that followed the movie, Webb, who now runs the special operations website SOFREP.com, said he's not too worried, and believes that a majority of the people who go to see the movie are brought together by it.

"They're walking away with a very humbled, positive experience, in that they're learning about this guy that's not a guy that's out there wanting to go overseas and do bad things to people. This is a guy who served his country, who did what was asked of him and this amazing sacrifice and how it affected his family at home," he said.

Dustin Diamond Pleads Not Guilty in Bar Stabbing Incident

Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office(OZAUKEE COUNTY, Wis.) — Dustin Diamond pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that he stabbed a man in a Wisconsin bar altercation last month.

The former Saved By the Bell actor, 38, appeared in Ozaukee County Circuit Court, along with his fiancée Amanda Schultz, to plead not guilty to second-degree reckless endangering safety, disorderly conduct, and carrying a concealed weapon, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Diamond was arrested on Dec. 26 after officers responded late the night before to the Grand Ave. Saloon regarding reports Diamond "had stabbed another male patron and left the bar," police told ABC last month.

A conviction on the recklessly endangering safety charge could result in up to 10 years in jail for Diamond, according to documents obtained by ABC News.

Diamond told police that at the bar, "there was a group of intoxicated people being rude and insulting," according to court papers. After an altercation that his fiancée had with another woman, Diamond told police that he saw her bleeding, then he intervened. He did not intentionally stab the man at the bar, but "chaos broke out and people were grabbing at him," a District Attorney's report added.

During questioning, according to police, Diamond said that he was holding a knife or a pen during the altercation.

Police also spoke with witnesses, the victim and a bartender at the Saloon, according to court papers. The victim, who told police he never saw the knife, suffered wounds that were not life-threatening.

"Dustin continues to believe the legal process will exonerate him and he is undaunted by the work that lies ahead," Diamond's attorney, Thomas Alberti, told reporters after the hearing.

Amanda Bynes Won't Be Charged for September DUI Arrest

Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Amanda Bynes will not face charges in connection with an arrest last September on suspicion of driving under the influence. However, she can't put the incident behind her just yet.

The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office tells E! News that while it has declined to press charges against the 28-year-old actress, the case is being forwarded to Los Angeles prosecutors as a potential violation of her probation.

Bynes, who's on probation for a 2012 DUI arrest, was arrested in Los Angeles last September for allegedly driving under the influence of a drug. The following month, she was placed on a psychiatric hold; she was released from the hospital a few weeks later.

Jill Scott Talks "With This Ring," Explains Why She Only Dates Guys for Six Months

Bob Mahoney/Lifetime(NEW YORK) -- Jill Scott co-stars alongside Regina Hall and rapper Eve in Lifetime's original movie, With This Ring.

"The film is about three women, who are of a certain age. They've accomplished much in life, but they just haven't found the ideal love," the R&B singer tells ABC News Radio of the romantic comedy. "There's a lot of pressure in society to be I guess complete -- quote unquote complete. So these three women are making every effort to get married within the next year."

Jill stars as a single mother who, like the other ladies, vows to be married in 12 months. But Jill's character, Viviane, has her eyes already set on one man, the father of her child, Sean, portrayed by Jason George. Not to give too much away, but the two have a rather steamy love scene in the film. The Philadelphia singer says she didn't have much time to prepare.

"We had that scene the first day we met, so it really wasn't much time to figure it out. You know, I just work with the script," Jill explains. "My character was in love with this man, and that's all to it! You know, there's nothing for me to figure out. So it's go time. It's time for me to be in love with this man."

Jill says the cast filmed for one month in Cleveland, Ohio. It gave the stars time to get to know each other, and even discuss what With This Ring taught them about their own love lives.

"The movie made us all think about what we're doing. You know, what are we doing? For the married girls, it made them question and decide for certain that they made the right decision on who they married. They thought about it -- not to say they hadn't before -- but we talked about that: why they chose to marry these guys," she says. "And for Regina and I, the two single girls, we really thought about what it is that we want."

If Jill decides to walk down the aisle again, it would make her second time. She divorced graphic artist Lyzel Williams in 2007, and even broke off an engagement from her one-time drummer, Li'l John Roberts, a few months after giving birth to their son, Jett, in 2009.

The Grammy Award-winning singer says she knows why those relationships didn't work.

"You can hold your stomach in for four hours, but you can't hold it in forever," she explains in a metaphor. "You have to be who you are and you have to genuinely love who you love in order to have a lasting marriage. Getting married is one thing; staying married is something else."

Now, Jill says she's very focused when it comes to finding the one.

"I'm older now so I see a little bit better than I did before. My longest relationships now are about nine months. Actually, now it's grown to six months," she tells ABC News Radio. "There's no need for me to waste my time or anybody else's. I know by then. If you make it over the six month hump, you have done something. I must really like you." 

Lifetime's With This Ring premieres Saturday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
