Leonardo DiCaprio And Kate Winslet Named Top Movie Couple

March 23rd, 2011 9:15am EDT
Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet's doomed relationship in 1997 film Titanic has earned them the title of most romantic onscreen couple of all time.

More than 500,000 people were polled for the ABC TV and People magazine movie rundown, and the stars earned almost a quarter of the votes for their turn in James Cameron's epic.

The romance between Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in 1939 classic Gone with the Wind was rated the second most romantic film pairing, while Richard Gere and Julia Roberts' unlikely coupling in Pretty Woman landed them third in the survey.

Spotlight On The Best Big-Screen Lawyers

April 16th, 2009 10:00am EDT
Chicago
Lawyers have been around basically as long as the law has been present - even back in Ancient Rome and Greece there were men who would stand up and speak for the laws they made. Over the years the role of the lawyer has altered a few times, but it always comes back to truth, justice, and honesty ... or the exact opposite of those ideas.

Lawyers have gained a rather negative persona, either due to them wanting too much money or doing it for their own ego rather than what is right. Film often interprets reality, and so lawyers on screen are usually portrayed as either virtuous, helpful,...

Workplace Romance: Costars Who Fell In Love

August 19th, 2008 12:08pm EDT
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland's hearts skipped a beat while filming Flatliners (1990). Tom Cruise admired a young Aussie actress named Nicole Kidman and had her cast opposite him in Days of Thunder. The movie Seven ended with Gwynet...

Gene Wilder Curses Cursing

Gene Wilder
Veteran comedian Gene Wilder has called on Hollywood to cut back on excessive swearing in films. The Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory star is fed up with hearing curse words in modern movies, and wishes writers would try and pen less predictable dialog that relies more on invention than vulgarity.

Wilder, 74, says, "I'm so tired of the 'F' word in movies. Jimmy Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable - they didn't have to swear and they were powerful. You got everything. There's a film... I saw that if you didn't read or hear the dialog, it is a good story. And then ev...

Antonio Banderas Refuses To Act With His Wife

June 29th, 2007 12:37pm EDT
Antonio Banderas
Actor Antonio Banderas will never star alongside his wife Melanie Griffith, because he hates "husband and wife" movies. The Shrek star refuses to watch films which feature real-life married couples and claims he will never share the big screen with his wife of 11 years.

He says, "I have never liked movies where a husband and wife performed together on screen. For me, it's like I'm looking at a National Enquirer moment, seeing them kissing and doing things they do in private. I don't like it. Probably in the time of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn, it made some sense but even sinc...

Mickey Rooney: 'Today's Hollywood Lacks Class And Dignity'

Mickey Rooney
Veteran actor Mickey Rooney has launched a scathing attack on the current state of Hollywood - claiming today's stars "lack class and dignity". The 86-year-old concedes he is saddened by the attitude of actors and actresses in Tinsel town in recent years, and insists they "don't know what it means to be stars."

He says, "Most of the people today... no-one can teach you how to act. Method acting! Huh! Spencer Tracy never went to acting school. Clark Gable, Jimmy Cagney, Edward G. Robinson... never. Today's stars, they don't know what it means to be stars. They have too much money too ...

March 17th, 2007 1:00pm EDT
Circle of Friends
As the sun rises on another St Patrick's Day, it's time to honor the Emerald Isle and all things Irish by looking back at the classic movies of Ireland.

From leprechauns and colourful characters to political dramas and violence, Hollywood has had a long and varied history with Ireland.

And countrymen like Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day-Lewis, Pierce Brosnan and Liam Neeson have become household movie names around the globe. Even second-generation Irish stars, like Spencer Tracy and James Cagney, have celebrated their roots, co-founding the Irish Mafia in Tinseltown in the 1930s.

Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman urged wannabe actors to never give up their acting dreams as he accepted a university college honor yesterday. The actor, 68, was honored with the Spencer Tracy Award for lifetime achievement in cinema by the University Of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Freeman said, "Once you've gotten the job, there's nothing to it. If you're an actor, you're an actor. Doing it is not the hard part. The hard part is getting to do it."

Freeman, who won an Academy Award last year for Million Dollar Baby, said he felt privileged to receive a Tracy award, after previous recipients Ja...
