19 Stars That Don't Mind Getting Naked For Roles

March 12th, 2014 10:00am EDT
19 Stars That Don't Mind Getting Naked For Roles
One of the greatest dilemmas in becoming an actor or actress is the value in taking your clothing off for a role. Many have clauses in their contracts that state they will not ever do a nude scene (Julia Roberts uses body doubles when a role calls for her to take it all off, and has said, "It's just not my thing.") Still, for as many thespians who will not take it all off, there are just as many who will, and have willfully. Following, in no particular order, are 19 stars that don't mind getting naked for roles.

1. Amy Adams

Although Amy Adams has been in various stages of undress in the ...

Moonrise Kingdom Official Trailer
If you're a fan of Wes Anderson and his offbeat, quirky films, then viewing this trailer is a must. Judging a book by its cover or in this case a movie by its trailer, 'Moonrise Kingdom' looks like the total package!

Top Ten Worst Movie Sequels Ever

May 26th, 2011 12:00pm EDT
Transformers 2
With the two mega number twos including "The Hangover Part II" and "Kung Fu Panda 2" hitting theaters this week, it got us thinking about movie sequels of the past - good AND bad. So in a Starpulse salute to the bold and not so beautiful world of second cinematic outings, we’re going to jump feet first into both the daring and depressing realm of all things part two.

Tomorrow will feature the best of the bunch, but today’s focus is the real 'winners' of the group. (Yeah right!) A bunch of second rate, highly laughable, easily forgettable and downright detestable flicks that almost make...

Jessica Alba Wears Valentino & Stripper Heels At 'Little Fockers' Premiere

December 16th, 2010 8:39am EST
Jessica Alba
Check out Jessica Alba in a white, flapper-like Valentino Couture gown at the world premiere of "Little Fockers." She finished the look off with David Webb jewels and a towering pair of gold Christian Louboutin sandals.

The star-studded red carpet event was held at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York.

A birthday party for the twins gives Greg an opportunity to redeem himself after he takes a job that raises the suspicions of his overbearing father-in-law, Jack (Robert De Niro), in "Little Fockers."

Greg (Ben Stiller) and Pam (Teri Polo) have been together for ten years, and now they're the...

Who Should Be The New Boss On 'The Office'?

September 10th, 2010 9:51am EDT
Steve Carrell
Ricky Gervais. Harvey Keitel. Michael Emerson. What do these three eccentric actors have in common? Answer: they’ve been mentioned to be heir to Steve Carell’s throne on ‘The Office.’ Make jokes if you will (well, not about Gervais), but at the moment, anyone seems poised to fill Carell’s shoes when he leaves after the seventh season.

Why? For starters, Hollywood is learning that replacing Dick York with Dick Sargeant isn’t going to fly anymore. Picking someone too similar would be irritating. It might be good to go with the Kirstie Alley after Shelley Long route. So, best to go w...

'The Officer' Producers Want Harvey Keitel

September 2nd, 2010 11:26am EDT
Harvey Keitel
The producers behind hit TV show The Office want Harvey Keitel to take over from Steve Carell as the actor is "probably the only guy who can do it."

Carell won critical acclaim for his portrayal of embarrassing boss Michael Scott in the U.S. version of the British series, created by funnyman Ricky Gervais, but announced he will leave at the end of the current season. Gervais recently shot down rumors he would be stepping in to replace him, and now producer Paul Lieberstein has revealed they have another actor in mind for the part - Reservoir Dogs star Keitel.

Lieberstein tells E! News, "...

Life On Mars
One of television’s sharpest crime dramas boogies to a classic ‘70s beat when Life on Mars: The Complete Series comes to DVD on September 29.

After a hit-and-run accident in modern-day New York City mysteriously transports police detective Sam Tyler (Jason O'Mara) back to 1973, Sam finds himself in the cultural hotbed of New York City in the tumultuous times of the Vietnam War, Watergate, women’s lib and the civil and gay rights movements – without a cell phone, computer, PDA or MP3 player - suddenly hurtled back in time when he’s ripped from 2008 after being hit by a car while chasing ...

Smarter Than The Average Celebrity

September 1st, 2009 10:03am EDT
Natalie Portman
Celebrities are not generally known for being scholarly, brainy, or bookish. On the whole, these types of words are reserved for people like Stephen Hawking, Marilyn Vos Savant, and Kim Ung-Yong. If a celebrity is fortunate, their claim to fame is achieved via artistic talent and entertaining know-how. There are, of course, celebrities who are not so fortunate, like Li Lo, Paris, and Brit, the Hollywood train wreck trifecta, whose notoriety is due more to excessive bed-hopping, drug use, feuds with friends, and wardrobe malfunctions than it is to arty aptitude. But what would the celebrity ...

Five Tremendous Quentin Tarantino Films

August 19th, 2009 11:00am EDT
Inglorious Basterds
This week we finally get to see one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer: "Inglorious Basterds." Like all Quentin Tarantino aficionados, we've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this World War II action epic since it was in development.

Tarantino's films have had a profound impact on those that have an appreciation for cinema. His use of excessive violence as a form of social commentary, his references to classic movies, and his nontraditional narrative structure has remarkably influenced modern moviemaking since he hit the scene in the early 1990s.

With the rele...

Spotlight On Director Werner Herzog

July 8th, 2009 11:00am EDT
Werner Herzog
Werner Herzog is the kind of director that Quentin Tarantino used to be. Remember the nineties, when 'Pulp Fiction' had just exploded like a hydrogen bomb in Hollywood, and all of your asshole friends were so proud because they knew who Tarantino was before you ever did? Herzog is like that, except he's been that way for about forty years, balanced on the hinge of superstardom, but never quite tipping it. He's the indie rockstar who never signs a label because he's "too cool", like Green Day before "Poopie" or Metallica before "Load" or Tim Burton before "Sleepy Hollow". Like the characters...

'Eleventh Hour' Vs. 'Life On Mars'

October 10th, 2008 4:05pm EDT
Life On Mars
Two of this season's most anticipated new shows debuted in the same time slot Thursday night. The new series Eleventh Hour aired on CBS, and opposite of that on ABC was the premiere of Life on Mars. The two shows put up impressive numbers in their first episodes, with Life of Mars' 7.7 edging out Eleventh Hour's 7.3 in the Nielsen Ratings. Both shows drew more viewers than the long-running ER, which came in with a 6.0 for NBC.

Eleventh Hour is based on a U.K. series of the same name. Rufus Sewell stars as Dr. Jacob Hood, a brilliant biophysicist recruited by the FBI to invest...

British Invasion: UK Shows Coming To America

August 26th, 2008 9:03am EDT
Life On Mars
With the American version of "The Office" still leading NBC's fall line-up, remakes of successful British shows have become a hot commodity. Picking up on this success, several networks have snatched up the rights to remake some of the most popular British shows. It's a process that has obviously worked in the past, at least in the world of reality television. "Dancing with the Stars," "Big Brother," and "Celebrity Fit Club" all had their start in the Fallen Empire, but remakes of drama and comedy haven't been nearly as successful. For better of for worse, here's a list of shows that will i...

Spike Lee's Best & Not-So-Best Films

August 11th, 2008 9:00am EDT
Spike Lee
It's difficult to rank the films of Spike Lee in order of best to worst because, quite frankly, the auteur hasn't really made a horrible film. With nearly 20 feature films under his belt and more to come (his upcoming WWII film looks promising) Lee has of course put out his share of minor works, but even the projects that failed still had enough of the director's signature characteristics-fascinating characters, intriguing dialogue, and race relation undertones-and ultimately are merely cinematic experiments gone wrong. Consider this a list of best and minor works of one of America's finest...

Movie Sequels We'd Like To See

June 23rd, 2008 1:31pm EDT
Full Baked
For better or worse, sequels are a staple in the movie industry. Media franchises have the benefit of an established audience base, which makes for easier marketing and endorsements. Producers want to cash in and build upon the success of the original films, and moviegoers often get so attached to the characters seen in movies that they'll willingly shell out $10-12 for sub par movies that got rushed to the silver screen to ride the box office wave. Unfortunately, because not every movie can have its own set of action figures and lunch boxes, many sequels that deserve to be made have slippe...

The Best & Worst Films By Quentin Tarantino

April 24th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Quentin Tarantino
The serendipitous career of eccentric movie producer, director and writer Quentin Tarantino is a complex one. Tarantino has made a name for himself by creating nonlinear storylines and filming multiple perspectives from different characters in his movies - a technique that strays from the more commonly used straight-time storyline.

His films are not off the wall, but they invoke an element of surprise that comes from the small details within a scene that catches one off guard and by adding mysterious elements that never get explained. A good example of this was in Pulp Fiction when M...

Julia & Eric Roberts Approached To Be Stuttering Spokespeople

January 21st, 2008 11:51am EST
Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts and her brother Eric have been asked by a stuttering charity to help promote its cause because they both suffered from the affliction as children. The pair overcame their problem before reaching Hollywood - and the Stuttering Foundation of America (SFA) wants them to help others.

A recent newsletter reads, "The Roberts siblings stuttered as children and ironically give credence to the factor the heredity/genetic link in the stuttering equation. They have no doubt inspired young people with the problem."

Representative Jane Fraser tells the New York Post, "It would ...

Jeff Bridges Wrote To Martin Scorsese To Plead For Role

December 13th, 2007 3:00pm EST
Jeff Bridges
Jeff Bridges was so desperate to land a part in controversial film The Last Temptation Of Christ he wrote a letter to director Martin Scorsese. The Big Lebowski star insists it was the only time he'd ever put pen to paper to request a film part.

He reveals, "It was one of my favourite books and I wanted to play Judas. I sent him a wonderful book too, called The Saviors Of God, which was the writer's (Nikos Kazantzakis) last book. I didn't get the part but I enjoyed the movie."

The part of Judas in the 1988 film went to Harvey Keitel.

Bruce Willis Got 'Pulp Fiction' Role Thanks To His Kids

June 22nd, 2007 12:38pm EDT
Bruce Willis
Actor Bruce Willis has his kids to thank for his iconic role in Pulp Fiction - he met director Quentin Tarantino through them. The action-hero superstar wasn't considered for the 1994 Academy Award-winning film until a fellow Hollywood father suggested him to Tarantino.

He recalls, "I got that part because of my kids! Harvey Keitel (co-star in the film) came to pick up his daughter from my house. One day, he mentioned that Quentin was over at his house and I should meet him. That's when he offered me the role."

Lorraine Bracco Was In Denial About Her Clinical Depression

May 25th, 2007 3:50pm EDT
Lorraine Bracco
The Sopranos star Lorraine Bracco prolonged her clinical depression diagnosis because she feared the medication she'd be prescribed. The actress fell into a deep depression while fighting former husband Harvey Keitel over the custody of their daughter Stella, and spent years hoping the blues would pass.

But, after realizing her lows were affecting her family and hampering her career, Bracco sought help. Speaking on the Oprah show yesterday, the actress said, "I wasn't willing to recognize it earlier; I was very against any kind of medication because I felt, 'Oh my God, I'm an actress,...

Lorraine Bracco
The Sopranos star Lorraine Bracco regrets cheating on husband Harvey Keitel with actor Edward James Olmos - calling her decision "immature". The actress' infidelity sparked a lengthy and messy custody battle with Keitel over their daughter Stella and sent her spiraling into a dark depression. And, now she's back in control of her emotions and the fighting is over, Bracco is looking back on the affair she had with Olmos as a mistake.

Speaking candidly on yesterday's Oprah show, the star said, "Eddie was a lovely man and, in all retrospect, Harvey is a good man... It was an immature cho...

Quentin Tarantino Believes He Was Shakespeare, A Slave & A Japanese Gentleman In His Past Lives

March 26th, 2007 9:35am EDT
Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Tarantino has a strong feeling he was William Shakespeare in a former life. The director feels he was born to write because it's in his soul, and though he'd never seriously suggest he's prolific Shakespeare reincarnated, Tarantino can't rule the possibility out.

He tells GQ magazine, "I've always had a thought maybe that I might have been Shakespeare in another life. I don't really believe that 100 percent, and I don't really care about Shakespeare, I've never been into Shakespeare, but then people are constantly bringing up all of these qualities in my work that mirror Shake...

Jennifer Aniston is considering leaving her Malibu, California beach house and moving back to her native New York City.

The former Friends star has been spending more time in New York and has been shopping around for real estate.
