“Summit on the Summit: Kilimanjaro” Doc Airs March...

MTV’s “Summit on the Summit: Kilimanjaro” documentary airs on MTV on Sunday, March 14 at 9pm ET/PT.

MTV will scale the highest altitudes on earth and show fans a never-before seen side of today’s most influential artists and activists in a 90-minute documentary to raise awareness of the global clean water crisis.

Summit on the Summit: Kilimanjaro, airing on March 14 at 9pm ET/PT, will present the expedition and the dramatic final ascent of Grammy-nominated musician, philanthropist, and “actionist” Kenna, the mastermind behind the expedition, along with a group of his friends, including Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch, Lupe Fiasco, Santigold, Isabel Lucas, Elizabeth Gore, Alexandra Cousteau, Kick Kennedy and more as they attempt to reach the top of Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro.

“MTV has a long history of educating its audience to raise awareness on issues that are important to them. More than 1 billion people worldwide do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. By airing this documentary, MTV hopes to mobilize a new generation of young people who may not be aware of this global cause and take action to get involved in helping find solutions to the water crisis,” said Dave Sirulnick, Executive Vice President MTV Multiplatform, News and Docs.

Blizzard Hits Isabel Lucas on Mt. Kilimanjaro

Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch and Isabel Lucas trudged through a blizzard Monday on the fifth day of their hike with other entertainers and activists up 19,340-foot Mt. Kilimanjaro.

“It’s pretty gnarly,” Elizabeth Gore, an executive with the United Nations Foundation, and one of the participants of the trek to raise awareness of global water issues, tells PEOPLE by satellite phone. “The visibility is only 10 feet in front of you. And it’s cold. I’ve got six layers on.”

With just a day left of climbing before hitting the summit of the Tanzanian mountain, the group reached 16,000 feet, causing many to experience headaches and stomach problems due to the high altitude.

Emile Hirsch Joins Mount Kilimanjaro Climb

Emile Hirsch, 24, who got into the survival mindset when he filmed the 2007 movie, Into the Wild, is joining Jessica Biel, Lupe Fiasco, Isabel Lucas and Elizabeth Gore for a weeklong trek up Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.

The stars are going on The Summit on the Summit expedition, which begins Thursday, to help raise awareness about the need for clean water worldwide.

Hirsch sounds ready for the more than 19,000-foot challenge, saying, “Put this on the books: I’m making it to the top.”

Vanity Fair – February 2010

Happy New Year, everyone!

Isabel Lucas is featured in the February 2010 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with an absolutely stunning image and a short write up. This is an instant favorite shot of her for me – she’s just so beautiful!

Isabel Lucas
Perhaps you remember her work in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen? Ah yes, she was the android who mounted Shia LaBeouf and strangled him with her tongue. But seriously, Isabel Lucas has a higher purpose. The 24-year-old Australian has worked on irrigation projects in Namibia, raised money for orphanages in India, and paddled out into the Pacific Ocean to combat whaling off of Japan, where she is now wanted for interfering with global commerce. We’ll soon get to see this more soulful side of Lucas in The Pacific, an HBO mini-series about the American-Japanese conflict during World War II, produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. This month she stars in Daybreakers, a futuristic thriller in which she plays human in a world taken over by vampires. After that it’s Red Dawn, a remake of the Cold War–era anti-Commie shoot-’em-up. Lucas takes her “action movie” characters every bit as seriously as the others—even when certain directors don’t. “It’s interesting,” she says, referring to Michael Bay, “when the only direction is ‘You’ve got to be more sexy!’”

Photos of Isabel at the Summit on the Summit Pre-Ascent Event held on December 9th have been added to the gallery. She looks lovely as always and I’m kind of in love with her green hat. ;)

Spike TV 2009 Scream Awards

SPIKE TV is airing its 4th Annual “Scream” awards on Tuesday, October 27th at 10PM PST/EST. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as you might suspect drew heavy consideration when nominations were decided and was actually nominated in 11 different categories.

Can’t wait to know how many it won? Well, you don’t have to.

The actual awards show was taped last night, and ROTF did very well, earning 3 awards. Megan Fox won for “best sci-fi actress”, Isabel Lucas won for “breakout performance – female” and the movie itself was deemed to have the best special effects.
