"Honestly, the movie is really funny," Scott told OTRC.com at the premiere. "I think people are going to be pretty psyched, pretty offended. That's what I try to do, is offend people and I think I'm in one of the most offensive movies, in an awesome way, ever."
Kate Winslet's new husband Ned RocknRoll is trying to block a UK tabloid from publishing potentially embarrassing photos of him that he says were taken at a costume party two years ago.
Lawyers for RocknRoll, whose birth name was Abel Smith, are seeking a permanent injunction and claim that releasing the 2010 pictures, which show him "partly naked," would mark an invasion of his privacy.
Kate Winslet married Ned RocknRoll, a nephew of Virgin Group billionaire Richard Branson, earlier this month.

"I ran into the bedroom and put on a bra," Winslet said on "The Graham Norton Show," in an episode which airs on BBC America on October 29 at 10 p.m. ET, People magazine reports. "In disastrous moments like that, you do the strangest things. I started to put on a bra and thought 'No, that's going to take me too long,' so off came the bra, on came the t-shirt, I grabbed the children and I picked up Granny."
The red-band trailer for Peter Farrelly's 'Movie 43' debuted on October 3, featuring Halle Berry, Emma Stone and Kate Winslet.

James Cameron told OTRC.com that the upcoming "Titanic 3D" DVD and Blu-ray release will include a whopping 57 minutes of deleted scenes and two and a half hours of new footage.
"There are two documentaries, they're very separate in subject - one is about the making of the film and the whole phenomenon, like what happened while it was being made, how they crucified us and thought we were complete idiots and then it came out and it was the highest-grossing film in history," Cameron told OTRC.com in a recent interview. "There's a whole, really interesting behind-the-scenes story there and then the other documentary is about all the dives that I've done and that our group has done to the wreck site and all the forensic analysis of the wreck that we've done over the last decade and a half, starting before we even shot the movie."
Kate Winslet is set to be named Commander of the Order of the British Empire, or CBE, by Queen Elizabeth of the United Kingdom.
The Queen's Birthday Honors list, which was published on Saturday, June 16, included the Oscar-winning actress, who is set to receive the honor in a ceremony known as an investiture at Buckingham Palace in 2012, according to the Associated Press.
Kate Winslet praised "Titanic" director James Cameron and said she wasn't surprised by the decision to add a dimension to the blockbuster film.
"My first reaction when Jim called me and told me 'We're going to bring it out in 3D' was 'How wonderful' because a whole 'nother generation who perhaps haven't seen it and certainly haven't seen it on the big screen will have the opportunity and that's great. It's a wonderful film," Winslet said in an interview provided by the studio. "Am I surprised it's coming out in 3D? No, I'm not actually because Jim Cameron - there's no one like him - he's the most capable human being actually that I've ever known and when he puts his mind to something, he does it."
Kate Winslet says that she was nearly giddy when she found out that Leonardo DiCaprio would be her co-star in "Titanic."
"When they finally gave me the role, I remember calling my friends and family and going, 'You're not going to believe who's playing Jack, you're not going to believe who's playing the boy's part - it's Leonardo DiCaprio, don't you remember him from 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape'?" Winslet recalled in an interview provided by the studio. "I just had so much respect for him that I just couldn't wait to share in the experience with him, you know, because I knew it would be challenging, I knew it would be exciting."
Kate Winslet poked fun at her "Titanic" co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, joking about the actor's weight.
"We do look very different, we're older," Winslet told iTV's "Daybreak" while promoting the film's 3D re-release. "Leo's 37, I'm 36 - we were 21 and 22 when we made that film. You know, he's fatter now - I'm thinner."
