They were not familiar, but thanks to TV series "Supernatural" Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have become not only colleagues, but also best friends. Those Texas guys, like Winchester, share everything, except holidays and girlfriends, for two. Journal STARS talked with TV-brothers and asked them to answer a few questions about their characters, in order we would be able finally to decide whom of them we love more! So, here is interview.
Cool or a good-soul guy?
Jared: Due to the fact that in "Supernatural" Dean - is macho and Sam is calmer, people often think that I have a softer character.
Jensen: And they do not make mistakes.
Jared: Okay, I admit, I can be very good man.
Jensen: Have you not had cried over a book?
Jared: Yeah, but at least I have the courage to admit it. And you still believe in this old tales "real men do not cry".
Jensen: In the old-fashioned values, there is nothing wrong with that.
Jared: Do you know how he is? He does not worry about trifles. I once watched in admiration as after he had just been scolded a producer, he simply said: "Have you finished? Let's drink beer. I have to think about and digest everything that you've said".
Jensen: But, on the other hand, you're also a little like me. You are discreet and relaxed, and do not like to get involved in fights. You like to be alone and you are not weenie.
Friends or brothers?
Jensen: It's almost impossible to explain. Due to filming the show nine months of the year we have to spend together. And even during the breaks to do something just for yourself is impossible. We are always together. But if you want to compare our relationship and the relationship of Sam and Dean, it is a big difference. Jared never drives me crazy.
Jensen: We are best friends, so there is nothing outstanding.
Optimist or pessimist?
Jensen: I'm a big optimist and usually try to see the good in people. I'm open-minded, but I'm not an extrovert. I've been known as a hard-working and practical person, who does not love additional sweats. I prefer to stay away from the paparazzi and red carpets of Hollywood tracks, focusing instead on my career.
Jared: I'm the same as Jensen said. I have nothing to add! And I am no less optimistic than the two Winchester brothers together.
Jensen: Dude, this is probably all too.
Loving preen or indifferent to the appearance?
Jared: You first!
Jensen: Many thanks, bro! Once I was a model, and I was taught to care about how I look. No, rather, never forget how I look! I love good clothes and, yes, I bring hair in order, before leaving the house. But that's all. I'm not the man who will go to beauty salons.
Jared: Regarding clothes, so I am not choosy here. Really. I wear what I like and usually those things that come across my eyes when I browse my room in the morning. Like today, for example. I put on my hat because my hair is not the best today, and I did not put anything special. However, I try to care on my body. My biggest fear - is to become thick.
Jensen: One day he had to act in the scene where he digs a grave without a shirt. I laughed so hard. He whined for weeks about this and not come out of the gym. However, when we started filming the scene, his trousers have torn. But the most remarkable fact that at that moment the camera was directly behind him! I couldn't stop my hysteria. Especially when he said: "Damn, did I only train for a long time tear my trousers?"
Jared: I want to tell some story about you too, in order to shame you, but I cannot remember anything.
Jensen: Because there are no such stories.
Superstitious or not?
Jensen: I would not call myself superstitious, but I think that between heaven and earth, there is something more than the eye can see. I am open to the perception of the supernatural, although so far I have not had to take the salt and drive away evil spirits from the threshold.
Jared: I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. This may sound melodramatic, but I do not believe in coincidence. And I believe that we are not only living beings in this universe.
Nerd or heartbreaker?
Jensen: Nerd! Funny word!
Jared: Also nerd! While earlier people were saying that I look like Matt Damon, and now like a Brad Pitt.
Jensen: Yeah, dreaming!
Jared: Hard question. Well, who would speak about himself that he is a nerd or heartbreaker? If this happens, we must urgently carry urine for the doctor analysis!
Jensen: Of course, we noticed that we have a large group of fans. We are very pleased, but we do not stuff our heads with this. Just as we do not wonder, who among us is more popular. "Supernatural" has become so popular primarily because of its plot. However, this does not negate the fact that Jared uglier me and completely not know how to play. But what can he do about it?
Jared: When he starts to let such comments, I usually say: "Can I take you for a minute?"
Jensen: And if we say seriously, then, of course, we understand that "Supernatural" shows around the world. And it would be strange if we did not like at least one woman among all those spectators. But we do not have time to worry about it. We have been working for months to fifteen hours a day. And in the remaining couple of hours we don't care about what's going on with our popularity.
Jared: Work on 15 hours a day, by the way, it's more for nerds!
Careers in movies or on television?
Jared: Each of them has advantages and disadvantages, to combine them - a great luxury. If you acted in television series, you have a guaranteed permanent job at the same place. And besides, I see as an additional luxury of working with my best friend. We both agree that "Supernatural" in the first place, but after the capture will end, we will think about filming in some full screen movie. For example, earlier this year came "My Bloody Valentine" with Jensen and "Friday the 13th" with me.
Jensen: These movies fit into our working schedule, and work on them was incredibly interesting. And coming soon "Resident Evil: Afterlife", where I'll play a major role. We do not envy each other about such projects. Even if we often call each other to tell how it's relaxed and luxurious actually on the "Supernatural" stand. And, yes, sometimes we are also talking to each other that maybe we are lucky again to work together.
Jared: In other words, you will soon again be able to order a duet of me and Jensen!
A screen adaptation of a comic book with Ryan Reynolds is only in a year will reach movie theaters and studio Warner has hired writers for the second part. The composition has not changed: Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim worked on the first film. Also, they have to write a script pictures about Flash.
The start of continuation to have not yet released movie - a sign of studio confidence in its already made first movie. For Hollywood this is more an exception than the rule. For Warner is also the first step that makes the studio according to a recent agreement with the DC publishers of comics.
Last September, the publisher was reorganized to become closer to Warner. Batman and Superman have a green light to continue and restart, respectively. Next should be Flash.
Development of full-length film about a superhero has been conducted for many years. Now Flash is moving faster: a script can take a trio Berlanti's - Green - Guggenheim. As usual in comics, superheroes are experiencing a few incarnations. It was decided to base a police criminologist Barry Allen, received super-powers. He appeared in 1956 in the so-called Silver Age of comics and is considered the most popular. In the early 1990's on American television series demonstrated, where Allen played actor John Wesley Shipp.
Writers invited to outline the plot for the sequel "Green Lantern", and for the full-length "Flash". Then, on the basis of one of the most favorite choices studio will commission a script.
Shooting of "Green Lantern" is now in New Orleans. In the green suit, which will be generated on a computer will be Ryan Reynolds, the director's chair is Martin Campbell. The film also employed Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard and Tim Robbins.
The main hearing of this week came from the location of one of the most anticipated projects of the year, the thriller "Inception" by Christopher Nolan: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is trying on the Riddler role in the third "Batman".
Information came from the site Hollywood Life. This resource is a frivolous sister of solid resource Deadline Hollywood and belongs to the same conglomerate. Therefore, there is a chance that the rumor proves true.
The source close to the director, said: "Chris really like Joseph, as an actor. While filming "Inception" they somehow joked that it would be nice to try him on some role in the new "Batman". Insider adds that there is not hundred percent, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt is indeed a serious candidate for the role of Riddler.
We remember that the scenario of the new "Batman" is not yet ready. This means that it's early to cast actors. But we cannot exclude the possibility that Nolan knows the key characters in the next movie. The release of the third part is scheduled for July 2012.
Edward Nigma was already a hero of the universe comics on Dark Knight. He made his debut in comics in 1948 and today is considered one of the most interesting of the negative characters in the history of comics. Originally bore the name of Edward Ashton, and his childhood was fond of riddles and puzzles.
Despite the fact that the Riddler is one of the main enemies of Batman, he does not look like a psycho-killer. Rather, he is too obsessed with his own ego, and the degree of narcissism can contend only with the Joker. The Riddler is dressed in a bright green suit with a purple mask and tie, which painted a green question mark.
In the TV series of 60th the Riddler is played by Frank Gorshin, but the world famous character that gave Jim Carrey. His loopy scientist, who worked for Bruce Wayne, has become one of the most vivid characters of the film "Batman Forever". Initially, Joel Schumacher planned to take on this role star Robin Williams, but the actor refused to film.
The secret elite team of four men was convicted for crimes they did not commit - and now they have to find those who framed them, and disrupt enemy plans. Hinder the heroes who carried out the most insane raid could only their own eccentricities - desperate guys are doing such that jaw droops.
Director Joe Carnahan gives us crazy "A-Team"- a brilliant comedy about a clear plan of Action and sparkling performance with four amazing actors, showing a real jazz.
Formally, the "The A-Team" - a remake of the silly TV series of 80th, but in fact the story just restarted on the basis of the plot frame. The film begins with singles across the four main characters and follows it crazy episode with helicopters!
Joe Carnahan finally found the desired degree of banter and dark irony, in which his stories appear in its best light.
"A-Team" is on another wave. This is "The Hangover" on special operations; male version of "Charlie's Angels". "They specialize in idiocy" - talking heroine Jessica Biel about the A-Team in her interview.
Action in the film is incredibly fresh and spectacular. Heroes running around the walls of skyscrapers, the helicopter loop the loop, huge cargo containers fly like toy blocks. And all this the heroes doing with their jokes - wild drive alternated with moments of explosive laughter.
Sometimes the drive with laughter occur simultaneously - for example, in the scene where the crazy quartet tries to fly in a tank (yes, you read it right - to fly in the tank). "A-Team" makes neighing so that may well earn the status of "most ridiculous shooter of this year".
The thriller film is quite silly, and "A-Team" would not be so good, if not the team of actors in lead roles. Joe Carnahan has been looking for a long time for the right candidates on key roles. Team Leader - Col. Hannibal Smith - could play Bruce Willis, and sparkling crackpot Murdoch - Woody Harrelson.
Among those who played in the end four desperate guys, it's hard to pick someone one. They are all wonderful and funny!
Liam Neeson - action-star of "Taken" by Pierre Morel, here plays a Col. Hannibal Smith - an exemplary leader, who always has a plan and a cigar in his mouth.
Sharlto Copley coupes well with atypical heroes (and quite simply, perfect loonies). Made his debut in the epic "Area 9" in the role of unpleasant clerk Copley has shined in A-Team. His pilot Murdoch is an absolute nutcase, but very charming. Soon his name in the titles will be a compelling reason to go to the movie - so beautiful he is.
The main cheerleader of "Hangover" Bradley Cooper turns all here - handsome Peck never misses skirts. A sturdy Barakus Quinton Jackson is afraid to fly!
This crazy action with gay characters and wacky pilot Murdoch deserves to continue, as no other!
On June 4, 2010 in the U.S. we all had a chance to see new thriller of Vincenzo Natali "Splice". Resource Shock Till You Drop has interviewed French actress Delphine Chanac, who performed Dran, a soul, resulting due to the experiments carried out on crossing human and animal DNA.
- Habits of what animal did you use to move Dran? "I tried going like a bird. I actually did not copy anything special, just use my imagination. I am, rather, my heroine, a freshman in this world, so I tried to forget everything I know about the world in order not to interfere Dran to comprehend it".
- How did Vincenzo find you?
"One time I've been trying one scene that requires physical fitness, and my friend has seen me. She was a casting director of another movie. She said that I have good muscles, and it's great because a Canadian film director come to France to search for the girl on the "physical" role. The next day I fly to Germany, but my friend said that I can come to play early. I had already watched the movie "Cube" and fell in love with him. I thought Vincenzo Natali was crazy, but the film was really amazing. On casting Vincenzo told me that I should represent a mixture of bird and girl. I thought: what's that? But I've tried and when I left, I saw outdoor were waiting their line more than 20 girls. "Vincenzo told me that they were trying to take on this role many actresses, but all the while continued to think about me, about the first girl. I was sent to Canada, so I practice with a guy who treats tricks, and spent a week there. It was very difficult. A week later I had to give an answer, I want to be removed or not. My muscles were shaking all the time, I felt so heavy. But little by little, the body is accustomed to stress.
- While filming Adrian and Sarah had treating you as their daughter. What were your relations?
"It was strange, because when we met, I had no hair. I was bald. I'm older than Sarah for a year, and they thought I was 18 and treated me as a child. A bald person looks younger! At the beginning of filming, I still say it does not matter in English, so shy and afraid to blurt out something stupid. Sarah and Adrian treated me differently on while filming: Sarah was mild and kind, as a mother, and Adrian was more like a friend. When I wanted to relax and shut up, I went to Sarah, and when there was a desire to have fun - to Adrian. They do not treat me as a regular partner. And this has built a wall between us, but a good wall. This wall kept me at a distance from them. I wanted to be a little "outsider".
- What do you think about the Dran exterior and its metamorphosis?
"It was exciting. I had the chance to reveal a very complex way. In my heroine there are a lot of physical strengths. I realize that Vincenzo sees everything in advance, he is very pedantic. Telling me my task, he, however, allowed me to find my Dran.
"I think now I know Dran better than he did. He worked on it for 8 years, and now I feel like a thief. I stole it from him, but it's good because we worked together and very quickly came to the general opinion on this image. For example, turning her head, she should move one way and not some sort. When she was a little, she was closed: her shoulders were directed inwards. Got older, she gradually spreads shoulders wider and wider".
- Are you planning now to work in America?
"If Americans want it (laughs). I have just appeared in Germany in the low-budget, but, nevertheless, great movie "The Big Black", and in 10 days I'm going to work in a French comedy and this is great."
A modest high school student - a fan of comic books, which ignore the girls and press yobs, wears a green suit and declares himself to the world under the name Kick-Ass. His fight with yobs someone takes on the phone and puts on YouTube - and Kick Ass became a super popular at the same moment. But once in his exploits Kick Ass has faced with two other superheroes, who hunt for the head of the local Mafia - and his life is threatened.
A real Kick Ass at the cinematography! It is quite realistic in content - and ultimately carbon monoxide, the film combines comedy, drama, cool comics, beauty and unbelievable thriller in the style of "Shut up and whack!"
In term of blood this film has rolled over all socio-limits. Blood gushes from hands, heads and bodies, from anywhere, including and superheroes themselves.
The military choreography makes us open mouth and watch, forgetting about the jaw, has fallen to our knees. Okay Kick Ass - he is still green, but when we see Batman-Daddy and his little daughter Hit-Girl, the screen is full of something unimaginable - flying weapons, utensils, furniture and the body of bandits.
This movie looks like all cool pictures in the genre of "shooter" - from "Equilibrium" and "Robocop" - to "Ultraviolet" and "Highly dangerous", creating a pleasant nostalgic cinematograph atmosphere.
Kick Ass has been directed by Matthew Vaughn well known by his films "Star dust" by Neil Gaiman script, and even earlier - the film "Layer Cake", that made Daniel Craig a new Bond. He knows how to create beauty, humor and brutality, and the tender relationship between the characters on the screen.
All this is fully invested in Vaughn "Kick Ass" - a film by turns becomes a hellish medley and the bloody bath, and the carbon comedy about the idiot in the diving suit, a story about teenage love, a cold dish of revenge from the menu itself Tarantino - a beautiful and sad comics substituted-story about cop and his little daughter.
But the main note of "Kick Ass" is laughter and shock. A considerable proportion of them are taken by Hit-Girl - eleven-year girl, who, cheered by the music kills the bandits, like a pigs, and their limbs hacked off a slight stroke, causing surprise. With no doubt Chloe Moretts is the best here!
However, other actors are also in their places. Kick Ass - Aaron Johnson balances between shy nerd and naively brave superhero in hydro-suit. In specs, he recalls John Lennon, and this is already noticed: Johnson played Lennon in the movie "The guy from Liverpool."
Nicolas Cage goes wildly similar roles: eternally dejected, in which he is able to magically ignite, releasing his inner demon (as in "Face / Off" and "Bad Lieutenant").
Mark Strong is as usual good in the role of the charismatic and impeccably stylish villain.
The impression of the film is equal to the name, and the only wish to see quickly promised finale of the second part!
Women's "Four Musketeers" Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte are back on the big screen, as on the podiums. New York was not enough - and friends try to visit a luxury resort in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi. Each gets personal butler, lux suit and new "Maybach" - but the film wouldn't response to its title if their heroines are not always found adventure in their fascinating asses.
Girls, make it funny as "Sex and the City 2" will take you to the eastern tale!
In the second feature-length "Sex" Carrie faces the same problem as the three-dimensional "Shrek" their cozy home with Big is fast becoming a household swamp. Charlotte got children; Miranda is pressed by a nasty boss, and Samantha is sitting on hormones to overtake her climax.
Creators of "Sex and the City 2" had some pity on men and add to the story pretty tits nanny for the children of Charlotte. Alice Eve an actress of outstanding talents (especially in the wet t-short).
The first half part of the second "Sex ..." familiar to us ladies make it fun in New York, and after move to Abu Dhabi, where the intervals between advertising luxury of "new Middle East" continues in the same spirit.
The film is really tightened mercilessly - and sometimes causes a persistent desire in unison with the critical reviews on a new book, Carrie advise her to seal her mouth with a tape.
But if you do not moan in the timing and the lack of subtle revelations, in general, everything is rather well.
Carrie still lost the will when see a new shoes, and Samantha - from bulging swimming trunks men's rugby team.
"Sex and the City 2", as before, - is a nice film.
There are some good jokes, and even funny sex machine Samantha sometimes leads to empathize, not mention the rest. And besides, "Sex and the City 2" features excellent soundtracks, where fashionable western tunes are replaced by elegantly languishing Arab chants.
"Heart of women - the ocean, full of secrets," - said the heroine of "Titanic". Even if new series of "Sex and the City" will decant it into empty ocean and back, it's all the same people will wait and watch it as for the first time - because the relations, the role of men and women of dream, the world's best mother, wife, mistress - are inexhaustible.
Carrie and Big All the moments youtube
Candace Bushnell once found a gold mine - or touched the heart of each: how to look.
And let the men in turbans, waving their hands to "obscenity" and "debauchery" and the other men - parading yawn in cinemas chairs. All the same in those Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha, the remaining entrants into each stage of love relations, the girls will find a kindred soul - while of the actresses do not start to pour sand of time!
The young base blood Prince Dastan during the assault on the holy city of Alamut (suspected of arms trafficking) gets the dagger, which has magical properties. Use it to "unwind" time for a moment ago, and change course - and only the owner of a dagger will know what happened.
Many rulers seek to take possession of a dagger, not knowing that it was the key to this "Pandora's caskets," which could destroy the whole world. In large-scale adventure action, is based on the cult video game - "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" - time ranks all sites.
To adapt a famous game directors have been prepared long ago. A list of names in title is impressive - to create "Prince of Persia" has participated even Jordan Mechner - creator of well known computer game and the creator of parkour David Belle, in the director's chair sat Mike Newell (who was filming "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire") and the music was written by virtuoso Harry Gregson-Williams.
Thus we have gotten bright entertaining tale with eastern color, adventure and spectacular acrobatics.
I think the best in film are the sets and stunts: Prince Dastan shows real class throughout the film, tumbling, jumping on the roofs and running over the walls. Watching his acrobatics as exciting as playing in the "Prince of Persia" itself - I think it was that wanted producers. In addition, the situation in the film is created with love and care - the audience brought the majestic eastern city, bustling markets and neighborhoods and the royal desert. Against this background events of the film seemed to be Untold Story of Fairy Tales "Thousand and One Nights".
Not let us down and humor: Sheik Amar in a sparkling performance by Alfred Molina in all the scenes jokes, Prince Dastan adds funny situations. By the way, the scene with the kiss with ostrich - is a pure Molina improvisation: "I thought that either I get his beak into the eye, either we remove a funny episode"- laughs an actor.
Prince Dastan charming and clever - but all his charisma does not fill the emptiness of a scenario of this hero, quietly move from a computer game. In the game this emptiness fills a player taking control over the Prince of Persia - and the movie is intended to replace the character of a main hero Dastan, but seems authors have forgotten about this!
Princess Tamina accompanying Dastan much screen time sometimes blends with the magnificent scenery.

Under a fairy tale oriental color filmmakers wanted to invite on a key role non-western but eastern artists. However, Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan refused to play Dastan, and Iranian movie star Golshift Farahani was arrested at the border when she was going to act in the role of the princess Tamina, - for participation in the film by Ridley Scott's "Body of Lies" she was forbidden to leave the country. Therefore in the "Prince of Persia" all major and minor heroes in the Persian kingdom - are not eastern European and this fact confuses at first, but then you get used to: after all it's a fairy tale!
Adventure and trials have given Prince Dastan experience - needed to look at the life and time from another angle, a little step up over the edge. And when he looked, he had taken the best measure, which he could take: not against enemies and obstacles, armies and foreign intrigues, but against time!
Guillermo Del Toro, who said on May 31 about his resignation from the project "Hobbit", appealed to fans of the franchise in a letter that was published on the site TheOneRing. In a message to the director explained his attitude to the situation and said goodbye to the fans of the project.
Well, I'm here again. As promised, I wrote this letter before the end of the weekend. I want to thank those of you who have supported me from the beginning, and those who joined along the way. Moreover, I want to say goodbye, and with those who did not want or do not have time to find faith.
So, that what happened is an unusual situation for such a large project. Peter & Co over the years have been worked on "Lord of the Rings" and I'm myself in the cinema for a long time and took a lot of movies ... but to devote so much time and energy to something, especially if you are rigidly agreements, if ever ask for a delay on contractual obligations, signed with other studios, such things didn't happen with me.
My interest in the project required enormous sacrifices, both personally and professionally. The consequences of my decisions will be reminded for years. I've changed my whole life, moved my family to New Zealand and first boarded the project in 2008.
So, as mentioned earlier delays, contractual difficulties and obstacles encountered more than once, and it all happened with the participation of more than one legal entity, you have just to believe that all this was severe enough to cause such denouement. To leave New Zealand and the "Hobbit" crew for me was extremely painful.
As I said earlier, all work on design, CGI-images, scenery and models - reflecting my views on Mirkwood, Spider, Vargas, Stone trolls and imagination about the rest of the team (Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens) - continue and we will try to facilitate the process of adaptation to the new project director.
I believe that movies will be removed. As you read this letter, the project develops. Our team - Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and I- will continue to work on the script.
Perhaps even sooner than we think, we all see the finished film, and I always will jump on the spot when a scene or being or turning the story, created under my leadership. Everyone who worked on the Novels receive two films. And what about me? I'll look on my family members through the film. On my children from far away!
I hope that you understand how delicate this issue for me. Of course, I will follow developments with interest and read the messages on the forums. But here on the site, I will no longer, and I'll keep you informed. Again, this is one of the hardest decisions in my life.
I am no longer the official voice of the project. I wish you good luck, protect yourself, and - I invite you all with me to conquer new peaks of cinema.

People in developed countries watch television an average of 27 hours per week. Absolute hits of airtime around the world are the talent show! Among them and popular today British show X-Factor!
Main star of any talent show - is the man who invented this contest! So, well known Simon Cowell - is a creator of competition "X-Factor". In any talent show there are a few constants stars - the judges. And Simon Cowell is the most famous and highly paid referee in the world.
He judges not only his own show: Long before he began to judge "Pop Idol" and "American Idol". Simon Cowell is "the most evil judge in the world." Known for his catchphrase "Do not want to seem rude, but ..." and further analysis should be offensive not only performances and talents, but also their appearance. As a rule, he doesn't finish his speech as his voice is being drowned by other judges and the audience. The Times called Cowell "toxic waste". That's why he is so famous and gets so much money: only one for one season of "American Idol" he is paid $ 33 million.
"X Factor" is the second child of the mentioned below Simon Cowell. And some said that the show bears the imprint of an unpleasant personality of its creator and known as "factor of cruelty". Here are encouraged not only to deliberate rudeness and sarcasm of the judges, but also conflicts among the contestants. The contest is only with songs, but the song should be chosen and the shows of jury favorites are removed and installed with a great care. Intrigues and scandals in the UK "X-factor" - one of the favorite themes of the local press. Nevertheless, the competition digs musical talent and gives the winner a start in life in the form of one million pounds sterling. Not on hand, of course and as an attachment to the further promotion career.
Leona Lewis - is the best ads of "X Factor" show. Lovely London girl in early childhood delirious music and the parents did not spare funds for realization of her dreams. Leona studied at three music schools, has mastered the different musical instruments (from piano to guitar), attracted to jazz and blues, and then switched to popular music. After graduating from high school made a demo album of her own songs, but her creativity is not interested in any of the studio.
She has lost faith in her abilities and decided to go to university to acquire the "peaceful" occupation. But Leona boyfriend persuaded her to take part in the "X factor". Shy girl somehow survived the qualifying round (where the judge mocked the participants as they want) and won the 2006 season. And in 2007, her debut album "Spirit" was sold in 6,5 million copies.
Now Leona Lewis is a multiplatinum singer with a planned world tour for 2010. She cannot afford to abandon the fee of one million dollars for a small presentation (that is how much she was offered a part in the opening of seasonal sales in the famous London department store Harrods).
