Sarah Jessica Parker Stunned By Ancestor's Salem Witch Trial Links

3/6/2010 1:30pm EST
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker has been left reeling by a televised trip back in time after researching her family tree for a new show - her ancestors were part of the Salem Witch Trials. The Sex & The City star was the first curious celebrity to feature in new show Who Do You Think You Are? when the program debuted on Friday night - and she had no idea her family's past would be so interesting.

Parker returned to her native Ohio and discovered her mother's ancestors weren't German, as she had always thought - but were settlers from England, and her third great-grandfather, John S. Hodge, may have ...

Matthew Broderick: 'It's Very Nerve Wracking To Be Half-Naked, Pretending To Have Sex'

1/12/2010 9:25am EST
Matthew Broderick
"I always insist on one scene in bed. Just kidding. It's very nerve racking to be half-naked, pretending to have sex. I don't get those kind of moments very often in movies. My wife does a lot more than I do. But Sarah Jessica (Parker) and I are both pretty grown-up about watching each other's love scenes on the screen." Matthew Broderick on his big-screen sex scenes.

Matthew says he turned down repeat offers to star alongside his wife in her hit TV show "Sex And The City." The couple has never appeared onscreen together throughout their 13-year marriage.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Daybreakers,' 'Youth In Revolt' & More

1/4/2010 9:44am EST
A belated Happy New Year to all. I hope you each had happy holidays and got a chance to view all of the movies you wanted to see.

I haven't seen James Cameron's "Avatar" yet, although it's the top movie on my list right now. I've heard the film showcases some impressive visual effects, but that its dialogue and character development are not as strong. Regardless, I'm still anxious to see for myself.

2010 starts out with the release of "Daybreakers," "Youth in Revolt," "Leap Year," "Crazy on the Outside," "Wonderful World," and "Bitch Slap."


By 2017 a plague has ...

Kind Of Scary: Sarah Jessica Parker Channels Bette Midler's 'Rose' Hairstyle

9/2/2009 9:20am EDT
Sarah Jessica Parker
Photos were shot of Sarah Jessica Parker filming "Sex And The City 2" in the Upper East Side in New York City yesterday, but she could be doing a remake of Bette Midler's 1979 movie "The Rose" with that permed hair. See more photos after the jump...

"Sex And The City 2" bosses were recently denied permission to film in the conservative United Arab Emirates. Government officials took a dislike to the planned work and have refused them access to shoot in Dubai, according to local newspaper The National. Earlier reports had suggested authorities in the country were not keen on having the wo...

Judd Apatow: His Career And Latest 'Funny People'

7/30/2009 10:38am EDT
Judd Apatow
This Friday marks the theatrical release of "Funny People," the Judd Apatow dramedy starring Adam Sandler as a terminally ill stand-up comedian. As the buzz around this film has grown, fans and critics alike have wondered if Apatow, who never met a penis joke he didn't like, was making a huge mistake by veering into "serious" territory. Pretty odd, considering that one of Apatow's most loved and respected works was the TV series, "Freaks and Geeks," a show that beautifully walked the line between hilarity and heartbreaking realism.

Although it may seem like he came from out of nowhere to...

Neil Patrick Harris baby gay boyfriend David Burtka
Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend, actor David Burtka, are trying to find a surrogate mother to carry their baby.

The gay couple, who have been together for five years, have reportedly gone through a screening process at the Growing Generations agency. Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker used the same company for their twin girls due in July.

"Neil and David were so relieved and excited once they were approved. Now they have so many surrogate profiles to go through to find the right woman to carry their child," a source told Star, adding, "Neil and David can't wait to hold...

Our Favorite Films About Animals

11/24/2008 12:39pm EST
The Lion King
'Tis the season to slaughter turkeys. Did anybody not see former Vice President wannabe Sarah Palin hold a Q&A downstage of a turkey’s obvious death? (Go HERE if you didn't.)

On a more cheerful note, here are a few gems from Hollywood made for the animal lover in all of us:

Best All-Around Animal Film

The Adventures of Milo and Otis

The film is the best all-animal movie, with March of the Penguins coming in as an understudy. A documentary showing a death of a cute baby penguin? Definitely going to lose against a Japanese (yes, really, Japanese) movie with Dudley Moore as a...

Best And Worst Of Nicole Kidman

11/24/2008 10:00am EST
Tall, elegant Nicole Mary Kidman burst into Hollywood after hooking a role in a big movie - "Days of Thunder" - and also winning over its lead star Tom Cruise, who was America's Sweetheart at the time. Since then, Kidman has become much more than the ex-Mrs. Cruise, she is a beloved actress, mother, wife (to Keith Urban), and yes even Oscar winner! Beautiful, independent and dedicated to charity, Kidman is the very picture of a lady. This Aussie will star opposite fellow countryman Hugh Jackman in the upcoming film "Australia," in theaters November 25th. Let's take a look at some of her bes...

Election Movies: When Real Life Campaign Drama Isn't Enough

9/11/2008 9:30am EDT
Somehow, if you think that the American political system doesn't have enough pageantry or drama, the only possible place for you to turn are the movies. You can find a campaign movie for just about every level of politics. For the most part, they all tell the same story. You have your candidate, and there's an election going on, and from high school to the presidency, there's going to be a debate on using negative campaigning, a starry-eyed speech about sticking to your ethics, and then some sort of sex scandal. Sounds about right.

Election (1999)

It seems that the chance for a pe...

Top Career-Defining Film Roles

4/22/2008 8:30am EDT
The Silence Of The Lambs
Ever seen a movie with some little-known or vaguely recognizable actor and then had to ask yourself, 'Who WAS that person?' Or have you seen an actor in a movie that suddenly made you see that person in a whole new light? For some actors, all it takes is one role to make their movie careers flourish. Following is a list of some of our favorite career-making performances in no particular order:

1) Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman"

It's probably one of the most obvious "career launching" roles of the last 30 years, but no compilation of career-defining movies would be complete without i...

The Best Four Years Of Your Life: Top 10 High School Movies

4/2/2008 2:30pm EDT
Sixteen Candles
Before Lindsay Lohan became a Mean Girl and Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron became High School Musical sweethearts, Winona Ryder was a Heather and Molly Ringwald and Andrew McCarthy were our favorite couple from two different worlds.

Today's popular teen flicks would have never existed without the high school classics that made and shaped the genre. What makes a great high school movie is the legacy they've made on generations of teenagers, despite the decade they grew up in. These are the movies with the unforgettable characters, witty lines, and the feeling of being forever young. The...

The Top Ten Oddest Athlete Cameos

3/6/2008 11:45am EST
The Fridge in G.I. Joe
We have to say, the process of compiling a list of the best athlete cameos has been done to death. We get it; Keith Hernandez was hilarious in Seinfeld (he was), and Mr. Burns' All Star softball team episode of The Simpsons is a classic (it is). We wanted to delve a bit deeper though, really flesh out some more obscure and odd cameos' from our favorite stars in the world of sports.

Snow Dogs
Disney has produced some huge animated hits (The Lion King, Aladdin, Lady and the Tramp) and extremely popular live-action flicks (Pirates of the Caribbean, High School Musical, National Treasure).

Sarah, who turned 40 this year, is quoted in Scotland's Daily Record newspaper as saying: "I'd change a lot. I think I wasted many years. I wish I'd applied myself in school, I wish I'd gone to college, I wish I hadn't gotten so tanned all those years. I wish we'd invited more people to our wedding, and I wish I'd worn a different we...

The actress revealed: "I'm always trying to put weight on." She added: "I'm an eater - and I love junk food. I'm going to wake up one day and I'll be triple my size and I'll say, 'Ha, the joke's on me!'"

The 'Sex and the City' star - who has a three-year-old son - also criticised celebrity mums who crash diet after giving birth. She told Closer magazine: "There's all this emphasis on losing weight after a baby. Look at Posh Spice! It's not easy to take off weight af...
