Alyssa Milano In Jeans & Leather Knee-High Boots - Hot Or Not?

4/1/2010 2:15pm EDT
Alyssa Milano
There's something about a girl in knee-high leather boots - particularly when that girl is Alyssa Milano. She showed up at the Los Angeles premiere of "Clash Of The Titans" yesterday in skin-tight jeans and a lace blue top that hinted at a little bit of skin. Show us more, Lys!

Alyssa returns to primetime in the new ABC comedy "Romantically Challenged," which premieres April 12. The series is about four friends who try to find love and happiness while navigating their way through today's tricky world of dating. She plays Rebecca Thomas, who in the pilot episode experiences her first one-...

Sam Worthington's Tanning Tragedy For 'Titans'

4/1/2010 8:26am EDT
Sam Worthington
Sam Worthington suffered an embarrassing style disaster on the set of the new Clash Of The Titans film - fake tan products turned him green.

The Avatar actor plays hero Perseus in the big budget remake of the cult 1981 film, which is based on Greek mythology.

Producers wanted the pale-skinned star to appear darker and lathered him in fake tan for the duration of filming - but the end result left Worthington cringing.

He tells Britain's Live From Studio Five, "That was horrible (fake tanning). That was the hardest part of it. I'm a pale Australian, which is an oxymoron in itself. I did...

Dress Battle
Gemma Arterton (right) and Alexa Davalos looked sultry in black at the premiere of "Clash Of The Titans" in London yesterday. Gemma - who you may remember from the last James Bond film, "Quantum of Solace" - posed in a back-revealing dress, while Alexa ("Chronicles of Riddick," "Feast Of Love") opted for a slenderizing single-shouldered gown.

The 1981 mythological fantasy remake focuses on Perseus (Sam Worthington), the mortal hero made to carry out a series of quests by the gods in order to win the hand of the imprisoned princess Andromeda (Davalos).

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies 'Clash Of The Titans,' 'The Last Song' & More

3/29/2010 8:55am EDT
Why Did I Get Married Too
I’m going to see “Clash of the Titans” this week but honestly I’m not terribly excited about the film. To me it seems like your run-of-the-mill epic action/fantasy with loads of computer generated effects and explosions. I have yet to see a preview that has made me think this movie has anything special to offer. The only things that have my attention are the amusing tagline “Damn the Gods,” and the presence of Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, and Ralph Fiennes. As a critic though, I often approach films with the hope that they will prove my preexisting notions wrong, and “Clash of the Tita...

12 Upcoming Films To See Before Oscar Night

11/12/2008 9:52am EST
Revolutionary Road
This year's Oscar race isn't very deep with talent, and at this point there are probably only eight films with a legitimate shot at getting a nod for Best Picture. But those that have a chance at a nomination also have a great chance of winning.

One such film, "The Dark Knight", has already hit screens, but the rest of this group will premiere in the coming weeks as studios scramble to get their prestige pictures on the big screen before the year-end deadline.

Every year, film fans are tormented by the true snobs who catch all these possible nominees before the big awards show att...

There are five categories of stars: motion pictures, television, radio, recording and live theatre. A person must be nominated to one of these categories by an organization, agree to attend the presentation ceremony within five years of selection and pay a $25,000 fee. If you ...
