The actress told People about her cheeky scene in the film film “I Love You, Beth Cooper,” which debuts July 10. Panettiere plays the Beth of the title, a popular cheerleader who is the lust object of a dweeb played by played by Paul Rust, and she teases him by dropping her towel in the shower. How did the young star feel about baring it all?

New York Daily News just reported that Hasidic Jew actor Abe Karpen has droped out of the film New York, I Love You after receiving repeated death threats from his community. Karpen, who was already working on the film as Natalie Portman’s husband, was forced to leave the city and to go into hiding because the backlash from the film was so intense. Karpen is married with three children and works as a kitchen cabinet maker, but couldn’t resist when the opportunity came to star in a movie alongside A-list actress Natalie Portman. Before he fled the city he did give this statement:
“It’s not acceptable in my community,” he said of acting. “It’s a lot of pressure I am getting. They [the rabbis] didn’t like the idea of a Hasidic guy playing in Hollywood. I have my kids in religious schools and the rabbi called me over yesterday and said in order for me to keep my kids in the school I have to do what they tell me and back out.”
A friend of his Levi Okunov also gave a statement, “The community wants to kill him.”
Don’t you just feel bad for the guy, he didn’t even get his 15 min. It was more like 5!

Natalie Portman is teaming up with Scarlett Johansson again to shoot New York, I Love You. Seems like that the two have been bff lately since shooting their last movie The Other Boleyn Girl. In this flick, however, Natalie will be playing a young Jewish wife. Her story is only one of five different short films about the universal theme of finding love in New York City; in other words an Oscar worthy version of Sex and the City. But Natalie and Scarlet aren’t the only ones shining in this film. Elijah Wood, Nick Nolte and Kevin Bacon will also help make up this all-star cast.
