The "Into the Wild" star was arrested in January and charged with a third degree felony for aggravated assault and a misdemeanour for intoxication for putting Paramount executive Daniele Bernfeld "in a chokehold,"

The 30-year-old struck a plea deal with prosecutors, agreeing to serve a short jail term in exchange for having the felony downgraded to a misdemeanor. He'll also pay a fine of $4750 and be required to comp...

Emile Hirsche Checks Into Rehab After Choking Female Film Execut
Emile Hirsch has been charged with third degree felony assault and misdemeanor intoxication after allegedly attacking Paramount Pictures executive Daniele Bernfeld during a Sundance Film Festival party in Utah last month.

Bernfeld claims Hirsch "pulled her across the table and onto the floor" and landed on top of her. He then placed his hand...

Celebrities That Turn 30 In 2015
30 years seems like a long time ago… because it was. In 1985 our world was waist deep in the glories of the 80s. We had hair bands, Care Bears, Swatches, the birth of Super Mario Brothers – what more could you ask for?

Also that year Ronald Reagan was sworn in his second term as President of the United States, the Coca-Cola Company decided we needed a new Coke (which sucked) and Windows 1.0 was released.

1985 marked the big Live Aid world concerts and famous artists got together to sing “We are the World.” Top songs on the airwaves that year included: Like a Virgin- Madonna, Don't You (Fo...

Kim Kardashian
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

We took a look at Kim Kardashian's rope dress Thursday, but it really warrants another look. While it does accentuate her curvy figure, we can't get over the fact that she's literally wearing rope. The stacked necklaces look comical as well. Check out another look at Kim's dress and the rest of this week's fails below:

"The Girl Next Door" star Emile Hirsch is set to play late comedian John Belushi in a new biopic.

The actor beat out Joaquin Phoenix and Adam DeVine to land the role; and Belushi's Blues Brothers co-star Dan Aykroyd and his widow Judy, who is co-producing the film, have backed the casting.

TV character actor Nelson Franklin is rumored to be the frontrunner to play Ackroyd in the as-yet-untitled film.

Lindsay Lohan Celebrates Freedom With A Night On The Town

6/30/2011 10:00am EDT
Lindsay Lohan
Less than a week after being ordered back to court and reprimanded for having a rooftop party, Lindsay Lohan is free and-- partying?

Lindsay celebrated the end of her house arrest at the Lexington Supper Club in Hollywood on Wednesday night, and we hear she even stumbled out of the private party afterward, which will surely start some rumors that she's drinking again. We don't think she's hit the bottle just yet though as she looks to be in good, ahem, spirits, following her 35-day house-arrest.

Earlier in the day Lindsay had her alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet removed, and it seems she...

'Milk' Named Best Gay Film Of The Decade

5/16/2011 11:27am EDT
Sean Penn's Oscar-winning movie Milk has been voted the best gay film of the last decade.

Penn won an Academy Award in 2008 for his role as gay activist and politician Harvey Milk in the biopic, which topped the poll of the most important movies depicting gay people in the last 10 years.

Officials at U.K. charity Stonewall, who conducted the survey, commended director Gus Van Sant's drama for its realistic portrayal of the homosexual community.

Milk's gay activist friend Cleve Jones, portrayed in the movie by Emile Hirsch, says, "This is a fantastic achievement for Milk. As someone wh...

Who Will Replace Tobey Maguire In 'Spider-Man 4'?

1/12/2010 11:09am EST
Tobey Maguire
Yesterday it was announced that Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi have left the production of Spider-Man 4, opening the door for a younger actor to put on the blue and red spandex. But who can continue the success of the $2.5 billion franchise?

First let's discuss the new direction of the fourth movie. While it may seem odd that a "prequel" can be written, when Peter Parker is bitten by the radioactive spider in the first Spider-Man movie, there is a loophole.

Marvel has a separate timeline featuring Spider-Man titled "Ultimate Spider-Man." In this version Peter Parker is 15 when he is fir...

'Taking Woodstock' Review: Where Did The Music Go?

8/27/2009 10:43am EDT
Taking Woodstock
What would the Woodstock Music & Art Fair have been like without the music? Most likely: Three days of 500 thousand wet, drug induced concert goers rolling around in the mud. Well, at least the final act of Ang Lee's "Taking Woodstock" gets that part right. The festival is very much in full force but, strangely, the actual music is no where to be found. Really, were the music rights really that expensive? What "Taking Woodstock" does do is show a microcosm of the entire late 1960's counter-culture movement through the eyes of sleepy upstate New York town of Bethel over a month long period, ...

The spirit of the Woodstock Music & Art Fair of 1969 resonates 40 summers later, as if it were just yesterday. In 1969, five acts recorded albums for the Columbia, Epic, and RCA labels (divisions of Sony Music Entertainment) and brought their music to Max Yasgur's farm that summer. For the first time, "The Woodstock Experience" couples those albums with music from the festival, providing a pocket portrait of what each artist and band was experiencing during 1969.

12 Upcoming Films To See Before Oscar Night

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...

Small-Screen Stars Make Their Mark On The Big Screen

TV actors often try to parlay their small-screen fame into big-screen success. Some, like George Clooney, hit the jackpot. Others falter in the transition, but you can't fault them for trying.

Miley Cyrus
Comic book movies have steadily crept into mainstream media, and with the addition of some extremely popular fantasy-based television shows like "Lost" and "Heroes," the strange and unfamiliar are becoming more widely accepted.

I've been a long-time fan of comics, mini-series and graphic novels, and seeing some of my favorite characters live on the big screen can be both exhilarating and horrifying. It is just a matter of time before most of them are made into movies, and because of this I put forth a modest proposal for a few dream casting and origin/first movie plot choices. In some...

"Iron Man" is a good story, and with the film's decent cast it could be one of the best Marvel movies yet. With Tony Stark being one of the main protagonist/antagonist's in "Civil War," it's no surprise that his time has come.

Tony Stark is a fascinating character. He's not altogether different from Batman, at least on paper. He's a billionaire industrialist who uses his wealth and intelligence to become a superhero, standing among some of the strongest heroes in the world as an equal although he is but a man. Iron Man relies on technology, his wits, and a dark...
