"If you're from Boston you always wanted to hate our next honoree," said Affleck.

"There was something about him that made the boos ring a little hollow," he continued. "May...

New 'Suicide Squad' Joker Photos Are Absolutely Terrifying

Jared Leto
New set photos from "Suicide Squad" have just hit the internet, and they make Jared Leto's Joker look even more terrifying than ever. In the photos, Leto's looking right into the camera- his smoldering stare, plus the eyeshadow, gold teeth, pale skin and menacing tattoos makes this Joker look positively revolting.

Leto was spotted wearing a heavy black cloak- clearly, the "Dallas Buyer's Club" Oscar winner was trying to hide his costume. But given the white collared shirt and purple bow tie, it looks like he's wearing a very comic-appropriate purple suit. Just like the Joker should.

No Butts About It: 30 Celebrity Smokers
Everyone knows smoking is bad, but many celebrities can't help lighting up. Maybe they have a tough time quitting the habit, or perhaps they smoke to keep off the weight. A cheeseburger is worse than a cigarette, right?

It may surprise you that some of these stars smoke - others you won't find so shocking.

Keira Knightley is a smoker, and it's probably part of the reason why she's so thin. She's also been accused of having an eating disorder. Early in 2014 she admitted that her grandmother and great-grandmother had anorexia but denied suffering from the disease herself. Either way, both h...

Review: Unforgettable Rosamund Pike Gives Mediocre 'Gone Girl' T
It seems like just yesterday I was sitting in a dark theater in awe of the visceral visuals of a young David Fincher. The original demented mind behind such heart stopping work as "Seven," "Fight Club," "The Game" and even to a certain extent "Panic Room" seemed to be a new brash and bold voice in film that was able to have his stylistic cake and eat it too. But lately as Fincher has mellowed and matured, there’s been a desire to merely just tell the story minus pomp and circumstance and in the case of his latest outing "Gone Girl" it seems as though the trend of adding signature style is...

Celebrities are like regular people in that they occasionally overindulge in things they should consume in moderation.

But too many stars have battled drug addiction and alcoholism, and although many are currently sober, some still struggle to stay clean.

Lindsay Lohan, who charmed audiences with films such as "The Parent Trap," "Freaky Friday" and "Herbie Fully Loaded," has been to rehab six times to battle her addictions.

She told Oprah Winfrey in 2013: "(Alcohol) in the past was the gateway to other things, for me... I tried cocaine with alcohol... It allowed me to drink more. I think...
