In July (13), he pleaded guilty to a charge of accepting a financial instrument in connection with unlawful Internet gambling, and he won the support of his actor friend Jon Voight, who stars on Ray Donovan, as well as directors Judd Apatow and Peter Berg, who all ...

Liev Schreiber: I'm no film star

Liev Schreiber
Liev Schreiber doesn't see himself as a film star.
The 46-year-old actor - who has sons Alexander, nicknamed Sasha, and Samuel with long-term partner Naomi Watts - thinks he's not in the same league as other Hollywood actors and would describe himself first and foremost as a parent.
Asked whether he calls himself a movie star, Liev told Cigar Aficionado magazine's November/December issue: "I'm flattered but that seems like a bit of a stretch. When I hear that term, I think about people like Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie.
"Actually, I think of people like Gary Cooper, Bette Davis, Jimmy Ste...

Naomi Watts
Diana star Naomi Watts has shared the story about when she and now husband Liev Schreiber first met, revealing that he almost got away -- and she wasn't about to let that happen.

"It was a lot more ballsy than I would ever normally be," she says in the November issue of Allure magazine.

"Normally I want a guy to make the first move, and he wasn't. Then he got up to say he was leaving and I was like, 'Oh, s***. Probably another couple years are going to pass by. I was wildly attracted to him and his work, so I said something cheeky as he was about to walk out. I said, 'Don't you want my di...

Naomi Watts
Naomi Watts went out of her comfort zone and was more "ballsy" to hit on her longtime boyfriend Liev Schreiber.

The Diana actress and her actor beau have been together since 2005, but if it wasn't for Watts having the confidence to make the first move, the two may have never been an item.

In an interview with Allure magazine, Watts describes the first time they met, which was at the lavish Met Gala held every year in New York City.

She admits, "It was a lot more ballsy than I would ever normally be. Normally I want a guy to make the first move, and he wasn't. Then he got up to say he was...

'Ray Donovan' 1.7 and Whitey Bulger

August 13th, 2013 8:52pm EDT
Ray Donovan
Just as Showtime's Ray Donovan is really picking up steam, the Whitey Bulger trial in Boston comes to a head with a verdict.   Showtime must be delighted with the coincidence - it almost makes up for the Showtime (Viacom-CBS) dispute with Time Warner which has deprived New York City viewers of Ray Donovan, Dexter, and much more.  On that issue, I say a pox on both your houses - Viacom and Time Warner, you both are worth billions, give the viewers a break, one or both of you accept a little less, and get on with it.  (See my comments on this in The Christian Science Monitor.)  But I digress-...

Movie 43
If you ask us, if Movie 43 is just half as funny as the trailer, it's destined to be a classic.

The film's greenband trailer (e.g.: approved-for-all-audiences) premiered during Tuesday night's episode of Tosh.0 on Comedy Central; and on Wednesday the very not-safe-for-work (NSFW) red-band trailer debuted on the network's website (according to...

Bo Derek and John Corbett
The hottest couple that would have donned the top of our list of unmarried Hollywood couples surprised us all and got engaged last week- Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. While all the congratulations are in order for the couple, it sparked a question in our heads- why the wait? While not all couples feel it necessary to wed, in the case of Brangelina- considering they have 6 children, why not get married? But now that we have crossed them off our list, we focus on the other celebrity couples who have stayed together through thick and thin but haven’t put a ring on it.
