Repeat for SI cover model
For those looking forward to warmer days ahead, the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is here with Kate Upton once again its cover girl.
Repeating her feat for a second consecutive year, the 20-year-old, 5-foot-10 Upton graces the cover of the 2013 edition, which was unveiled Monday night on TV on CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman."
The new edition -- marking the 50th anniversary -- hit newsstands Tuesday.
It's Upton's third appearance in a Swimsuit issue. She was chosen as rookie of the year in 2011, when Irina Shayk was on the cover.
This year for the first time, the fashion shoot covers the entire world, with 17 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models journeying to all seven continents. Photo sites include African dunes and Asian cliffs.
But for Upton, there's lots of ice. She is warming things up in Antarctica, where the cover shot displays her clad only in a white, fur-lined parka and bikini bottom.
The shoot spanned 10 days in December, which is Antarctica's "summer." Some of the photos, including the cover, were shot from the base ship, which also carried the team from one icy land shooting site to another.
When she returned to her home in Florida, Upton said she was "very, very sick. I don't think you can go to Antarctica and stand in a bikini without that happening. But I didn't die, and I'm OK now."
Very OK, after hearing only on Friday that she was the editors' choice for the cover.
Jude Law says his biggest challenge in preparing for Steven Soderbergh's new thriller "Side Effects" was psychological: convincing himself that he could play a psychiatrist properly.
The movie had its international premiere Tuesday at the Berlin film festival, where it's one of 19 contenders for the top Golden Bear award. British actor Law plays a psychiatrist who prescribes a new drug he's testing out as part of a lucrative deal with a pharmaceutical giant.
Law told reporters he was faced with "overcoming the reality that I wasn't going to be able to go to medical school in the time it took to prepare for the part."
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are expecting their second child.
Cruz publicist Javier Giner said Tuesday that the Spanish actress is pregnant.
He declined to provide any further details, including when the baby is due.
The 38-year-old Cruz and 43-year-old Bardem had their first child, a boy named Leo, in January 2011.
