Halle Berry has pulled out of a film job to prepare for a custody fight over her young daughter. A spokeswoman for the Oscar-winning actress says Berry backed out of a role in Garry Marshall's New Year's Eve that was scheduled to shoot in New York this week "due to pending custody litigation involving her daughter."
Publicist Meredith O'Sullivan did not say where or when the custody case would be heard.
Berry and her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, have a daughter, Nahla, who will turn 3 in March.
Since then, Katherine Heigl has been cast as her replacement and will play a woman who was dumped by whomever Jon Bon Jovi is playing.

Ralph Fiennes makes his debut as a director, Wim Wenders comes up with a 3D dance movie and a jailed Iranian filmmaker gets a boost of international solidarity at this year's Berlin International Film Festival.
Organizers on Tuesday presented the 22 top movies scheduled for this year's event, which runs from Feb. 10-20. Sixteen of the films are competing for the top Golden Bear award at the event, the first of the year's major European film festivals.
A typically diverse program has Joel and Ethan Coen's multiple-Oscar-nominated remake of a classic John Wayne classic western, True Grit, rubbing shoulders with offerings such as The Prize, the first film directed by Argentina's Paula Markovitch.
It's been three years since the 44-year-old actor last appeared in a film (2007's Things We Lost in the Fire), which is a substantial chunk of time for an Oscar winner in her prime to disappear from the big screen.
Of course, she had her reasons, namely to have a baby, which she did in 2008 when she gave birth to daughter Nahla. As a 41-year-old new mother, Berry was focused on spending time with her baby and the baby's father, Montreal-born model Gabriel Aubry. (Berry and Aubry have since separated, splitting up in early 2010.)
But only months after Nahla's birth, Berry was back at work, throwing herself into a role she'd been desperate to play for almost a decade...
The Justin Bieber documentary Never Say Never hits theatres February 11th (in 3D, no less) billing itself as the "inspiring true story" of the Bieb. As the whole world focuses on our little singing sensation we thought we'd test your Justin Bieber smarts. So here's a selection of weird and wonderful trivia about the mop-topped Canadian boy who was discovered on YouTube. Oh, we're not saying that all of it is based in reality. In fact, only half of these trivial tidbits are what you'd call "correct." Do you know which five of these 10 Bieber facts are actually true? There's only one way to find out!
The mop-topped baby-faced pop singer wants you to know something very important: he's just like you. Okay, so he's probably got more friends, has a little extra cash in his pocket and the mere suggestion of his physical presence has been known to shut down streets. But fame and glory aside, Justin Bieber is still a 16-year-old kid at heart, all boundless energy and silly smiles, though with noticeably more poise - or swagger to use his parlance - and wants to set the record straight with his upcoming concert flick Never Say Never, opening February 11.
We sat down with the Prince of Pop to talk about his journey, the biggest misconceptions people have about him and why it's okay if you don't like The Bieb.
Check out the video after the jump!
In the Academy’s 83rd year, they decided to hip things up by signing on Oscar-nominated renaissance man/performance-artist-in-training James Franco, who scored a best lead actor nod for his work in 127 Hours, and doe-eyed, previously Oscar-nominated PYT Anne Hathaway to co-host the proceedings, in a bid, one would imagine for a share of that sweet 18-30 demographic.
The choice may have initially seemed to be a bit of a head scratcher but this promo video shows the two young A-listers having a ball and the wardrobe malfunction fire blanket gag is quite simply, adorable. Sure, they’ve both had films this year that appeal to a sizable audience (Eat, Pray, Love, for Franco and Alice in Wonderland and Love and Other Drugs for Hathaway) but they aren’t the only red-hot duo in town. We thought we’d offer a selection of 10 other of-the-moment couplings who would have made for, ahem, interesting Oscar hosts.
There is less than a month to go until Hollywood's big night and the marquee races are heating up. Given the number of award shows and honours that precede the Oscars, you'd think many of the victors would be foregone conclusions. Well...you might actually be right about that but let's not put the cart before that ornately groomed show pony. Over the next few weeks we'll break down the main category front-runners and pit them against each other to determine who's actually got the best chance of taking home Oscar gold. Using a completely non-scientific formula consisting of five "Oscar bait" factors, we'll work out who ticked the most boxes as part of their nominated role.
First up? Best Actress nominees Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right)...
