Dennis Quaid Has A Major Meltdown

4/15/2015 9:15am EDT
Dennis Quaid Goes Viral With A Screaming On-Set Meltdown! Jimmy
Dennis Quaid seems like such a nice guy. At least from his movies, anyway ("The Parent Trap?" Come on). But there's a new viral vid circulating, and it does't exactly portray Quaid in the most positive light.

In the video, Quaid's on a movie set and screaming a string of expletives that are unprintable in almost every form of media. So here's the text of the video, after applying lots of clean-up.

"What the f#@k, keep going! I am acting here, and this d#@khead wanders onto my set! I can't even get a line out, until Dopey the D#@k starts whispering in your ear, and you're not even watching...

No Butts About It: 30 Celebrity Smokers
Everyone knows smoking is bad, but many celebrities can't help lighting up. Maybe they have a tough time quitting the habit, or perhaps they smoke to keep off the weight. A cheeseburger is worse than a cigarette, right?

It may surprise you that some of these stars smoke - others you won't find so shocking.

Keira Knightley is a smoker, and it's probably part of the reason why she's so thin. She's also been accused of having an eating disorder. Early in 2014 she admitted that her grandmother and great-grandmother had anorexia but denied suffering from the disease herself. Either way, both h...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Happy 2012! I apologize for this column’s hiatus last week. Things got pretty busy for me over the holidays with various commitments, and since the previous article featured a ton of movies coming out for the holidays, I figured you’d have plenty to see until The New Year.

Review: 'Footloose' More Of A Jitterbug Than A Waltz

10/8/2011 3:00pm EDT
Here's a poster
Grief is confounding in that, over time, it can hypnotize and make us do some rash and terrible things. We can lash out at the ones we love most, drown ourselves in vices like food and alcohol, or even choose to watch that terrible, terrible, Oliver Stone 9/11 movie. In the case of “Footloose”, a movie more about mourning and grief than it probably intended to be, the drunk-driving death of several teenagers has caused a small town to outlaw unsupervised “Lewd” dancing.

Things kick off some time after this, when Bahstonian Ren MahCormahhhck, moves to the biahble-belt south to live with his...

Odd couple Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp spent the day together shopping in Los Angeles yesterday. At one point the pair put their arms around each other while looking at men's clothing.

Meg might have had a hand in John's recent divorce, thanks in part to her new partnership with the singer for a musical they are working on.
