Celebrities With Royal Blood
There's Hollywood royalty, and then there's the blue blood ancestry that neither talent (nor money) can buy.

Angelina Jolie was born in Los Angeles, Calif., to actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. The "Malificent" star's maternal grandfather was French Canadian, while her maternal grandmother was Dutch and German.

It's believed that Jolie is related, on her mother's side, to French King Philip II, known as Philip Augustus. He ruled from 1180 to 1223. Philip transformed France from a small feudal state into the wealthiest and most powerful country in Europe.

Do These Hollywood Actors Look Better Or Worse With Facial Hair?
Facial hair can make a man look sophisticated or like a slob. Charming or a creep. Dozens of A-list actors in Hollywood have tried a beard on for size, so tell us – do these guys look better or worse with their facial hair?

For Argo, Ben Affleck made like a hockey player and kept a beard for "the playoffs," AKA awards season. He shaved it off at an Oscars after-party when his film won Best Picture.

George Clooney, like Ben Affleck, grew a "producer beard" while Argo was striving for awards. He also rocked just a moustache for a bit, but for the last year or so he's been clean-shav...

Hollywood's Hottest Celebrity Siblings
Hollywood is full of sexy celebrity siblings who share the spotlight, often in the same discipline.

Sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles have both demonstrated their musical chops over the years, but Beyonce is by far the bigger star. However, Solange has made a dent in the fashion industry and is often watched for her clothing and hairstyle choices.

The Hemsworth brothers stormed Hollywood in recent years for their work in popular film franchises such as "The Hunger Games" and "The Avengers." The Australian-born brothers will likely continue to produce box office hits in years to come.

Jake Gyllenhaal
Jake Gyllenhaal missed out on the role of a lifetime - because he didn't know he needed a British accent.

The Hollywood Reporter held its annual actors roundtable with Matthew McConaughey, Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto, Josh Brolin and Michael B.

Jake Gyllenhaal is losing weight for a film role - a lot of it. The actor has dropped over 20 pounds to play a crime reporter in upcoming film "Nightcrawler."

The actor showed up to the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards on Monday night looking quite thin and very different from the guy who bulked up for "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" in 2010.

Review: 'Prisoners' Is One Of The Best Thrillers In Years

September 20th, 2013 3:00pm EDT
Prisoners
In A Nutshell: If you can stomach the film's intense and graphic scenes, the film is worth it!  Prisoners is 2013's ”Silence of the Lambs.” It is that damn good!

At first glance, Prisoners may seem nothing more than a dark, cliché and an unoriginal thriller. There is nothing new about the all too common story of child abduction and the havoc it wreaks on families and communities. But Canadian director Denis Villeneuve avoids all the pitfalls of having a big budget Hollywood debut (he received an Oscar nomination for his first foreign-language film Incendies) and delivers a truly riveting,...

Jake Gyllenhaal's 5 Best Movies
You can say this about Jake Gyllenhaal: there’s little chance he’ll ever be typecast. Thanks to his deliberate choice to vary his roles as much as possible, Gyllenhaal continues to be one of the most unpredictable actors working today. He’s done big budget blockbusters (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) and smaller, contemplative indie films (Proof, Moonlight Mile). With each film, Gyllenhaal seems to pick roles in which he can challenge himself as an actor, rarely playing the same type of character more than once.

This weekend Gyllenhaal will continue to surprise audiences with a grit...
