Jerry Stiller
Jerry Stiller and his wife of 58 years no longer have sex, and the actor is unapologetic about it.

The 85-year-old star and Anne Meara wed in 1954. They have two children - actor Ben stiller and actress Amy Stiller. The couple were a famous comedy duo and frequently performed together on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in the 1960s and 70s.

Jerry and Anne have been married for nearly six decades, a rarity in Hollywood (Danny De Vito & Rhea Perlman just split up after 30 years together). Jerry insists their mutual interests, not sex, has kept them together.

He told the New York Daily News: "I don...

Barbra Streisand
Barbra Streisand initially turned down a role in comedy movie Meet The Fockers and was only persuaded to take part because of her friendship with Ben Stiller's parents.

The singer/actress joined the Meet The Parents franchise with a part in the 2004 sequel opposite Stiller, Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman, and she reprises her role in the latest installment, Little Fockers.

Streisand admits she didn't want to work on the film, but changed her mind after a phone call from Stiller, the son of her comedian pals Jerry and Anne Stiller, who persuaded her to play his onscreen mother.

Mrs. Costanza
We're excited to see the cast of Seinfeld back on Curb Your Enthusiasm. The premise of a fictional reunion show is good enough to get Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the same room. Now it looks like we'll get to see their famous supporting cast too.

Estelle Harris, who played George's mom along with Jerry Stiller as his dad, has shot her appearance for Curb Your Enthusiasm. "We've done it," Harris said. "I was asked and I did. I was invited. I was so pleased to be invited."

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that.

Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

Bad Dads & Rad Dads On TV

June 13th, 2008 8:44am EDT
The Brady Bunch
Back when television was young, TV fathers were portrayed as all knowing and in control. Fathers knew best. They dispensed unchallenged wisdom. They were calm and smiling and never seemed pressured by any circumstance. They were always clad in a shirt and tie, even while relaxing at home.

The TV fathers of the 50s and 60s had a ready answer for their children, all who sat with rapt attention to the father's every word. "Gee, Dad," said Wally of Leave It to Beaver, "I never thought about it that way." The Brady kids would also express the same types of revelation after a counseling ses...
