The 15 Fittest Female Celebrites In Hollywood
Pop star P!nk is known for showing off her fabulous figure while performing, which includes some incredible aerial stunts. The singer works hard to look so good and spends a couple hours each day on her fitness routine. She even tried the extremely difficult P90X routine.

She told Women's Health magazine in 2009, "My brother and his wife are both in the Air Force (and) they do marathons and triathlons. I went to visit (and) I couldn't keep up with her - and she'd just had her first baby four weeks before.

"I was like, 'This is bulls**t! I will perfect this thing.' So usually, I wake up an...

Gina Carano On Nightclub Brawls and Unnecessary Boobs
MMA fighter Gina Carano became a movie star when Steven Soderbergh decided to build an action vehicle around her. After Haywire, Carano landed a role in Fast & Furious 6. You can see Carano in action again in the all new movie, In the Blood, now available on VOD, downloads and in theaters.

In a tropical honeymoon gone wrong, Carano plays Ava, a woman whose husband (Cam Gigandet) goes missing after a ziplining accident. Things were already stressful when a local kingpin (Danny Trejo) picked a fight with Ava in a nightclub, so she goes on the warpath through the Puerto Rican crime syndicate ...

Fashion Fails: Beth Stern, Cate Blanchett, Harry Styles, And More

September 22nd, 2013 1:07pm EDT
Beth Stern
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Howard Stern's wife Beth Ostrosky Stern appeared at an America's Got Talent red carpet. Unfortunately, she forgot to wear a top, so someone helpfully tied their dress shirt around her to cover her up.

Cate Blanchett wore this confusing dress to the UK premiere of Blue Jasmine. That top section is just bizarre. Are her arms stuck in place like that? Can she actually move them away from her sides?

I'm probably getting some h...

Gina Carano
Pop star Rihanna has been challenged to a girl fight by mixed martial artist stuntwoman-turned-action star Gina Carano.

The "Haywire" star is close to signing on for the latest "Fast & the Furious" movie and she can only hope that rumors suggesting Rihanna will play the film's bad girl are true.

Exclusive: 'Haywire's' Gina Carano On MMA, Soderbergh And 'Fast And Furious 6'

Beauty is nothing new for a leading lady, but add a healthy dose of lethal to the mix and you’ve got uniquely killer combination. With her equally exquisite loveliness and fast moving fists, former MMA fighter Gina Carano has both qualities in spades – so much so that famed director Steven Soderbergh cast her as the striking lead in his new film. Hitting Blu-ray on May 1 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment, "Haywire" has Carano playing a black-ops agent double-crossed and looking for a little vengeance. We’re celebrating Soderbergh’s return to his roots with a cool Blu-ray review, but firs...

Carano Is Strong AND Sexy in Soderbergh's 'Haywire'

January 23rd, 2012 6:54am EST
Carano in Haywire
Hollywood needs more action heroines like Mallory Kane. The protagonist in Steven Soderbergh’s spy thriller “Haywire” is strong and sexy like Lisbeth Salander, except she doesn’t have to show any skin to prove it. Portrayed by MMA fighter Gina Carano, Kane has the cunning of Jason Bourne combined with the fighting skills of Jackie Chan.

What really separates Kane from her sisters in the genre though, is her lack of emotional attachment. This isn’t to say that she doesn’t care about anyone, because she does love her father. However Kane doesn’t let her emotions cloud her judgment, i...

Review: 'Haywire' Apt Title For Shaky Action Flick

January 20th, 2012 11:00am EST
Haywire
Haywire is an apt title for a film that comes across more as a work in progress than a finished product.

In its promotional spots, the flick seems like another of the tried-and-true "action hero goes on a rampage to right a wrong" films, and there's nothing wrong with that. Many enjoyable movies have come out of that mold. But Haywire bills itself as having "reinvited the espionage thriller" in its production notes. It doesn't just want to be a popcorn flick, but also something more mysterious, and it doesn't succeed in either category.

Mixed martial artist and former American Gl...

Gina Carano
Fight fans have been enamored with Gina Carano since she entered the cage as a MMA fighter. Now moviegoers can discover the newest action hero, with a raw, real fighting style that could put the Hollywood heroines to shame.

Haywire stars Carano is Mallory Kane, a betrayed agent who fights to clear her name. The traditional action caper was Steven Soderbergh’s idea to make Carano a star. Carano glammed up for a press conference on the film, although she still looks like she could tap you out in a leg lock.

Gina Carano Had A Black Eye When She Met 'Haywire' Director

January 19th, 2012 8:50am EST
Haywire
Mixed martial arts pin-up Gina Carano was not at her best when she first met moviemaker Steven Soderbergh about the lead role in his new movie "Haywire" because she had just been at the wrong end of a pounding in the ring.

The director requested a meeting with the fighter and it took place shortly after her first MMA defeat.

Carano explains, "I had a black eye. I got punched above my eyebrow and the bruise was coming down into my eye... and my agent called me and he said, 'There's a director that would love to meet you.' I was like, 'I don't think you really want me to meet anybody right ...

Review: Steven Soderbergh's 'Haywire' A Welcome Return To The Fabulous Films Of His Past

January 17th, 2012 11:00am EST
Haywire photo
I’ll come clean - I’m more of an early Steven Soderbergh film fan. "Sex, lies, and videotape" was a stunning five-star debut, "Kafka" a fantastically strange experience and "King of the Hill" a nostalgic favorite. But it was his fourth film, the highly underrated masterwork "The Underneath," where the director not only showed some cinematic savvy, but also began to play with what would eventually become (for better or worse!) a Soderbergh staple – playing with time. Over the years it has had varying degrees of effectiveness on his work including adding charm to the Clooney fest "Out of Si...

Trailer Talk: This Week
I felt incredibly silly last week when I was supposed to see Mark Wahlberg’s “Contraband.”  I showed up at the wrong theater, and ended up missing my screening.  From what I’ve heard from my colleagues though, I didn’t miss anything fantastic.  One of them compared it in quality to last year’s remake “The Mechanic,” better than expected, but nothing special.

Most Anticipated Movies of 2012
If you’re family is like mine, you probably got one for Christmas. I have an aunt who has given on to me every year since I was seven. Each time I open the wrapping paper and feign surprise, as if my present could have been anything else. The first few times she gave me this turd of a gift, I hung it dutifully on my wall for the entire year. Each time I looked at it, I would wonder how Chocolate Labradors or Monster Trucks define me as a person (News Flash: They don’t). Now, as soon as she leaves the room, I throw my gift right in the trash without even a modicum of guilt. Still don’t know ...

Gina Carano Called Channing Tatum The 'P' Word

January 11th, 2012 9:27am EST
Haywire
Channing Tatum had no problems attacking "sweet" mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano for a violent scene in their new all-action movie "Haywire" after she called him a "p**sy."

The "G.I. Joe" star admits he was fiercely intimidated by Carano because he has been a longtime fan, and he struggled to grapple with her authentically for an opening scene in the film when her rogue agent character beats him up - until she took charge of the situation.

Tatum explains, "It comes time to actually have to smash a bottle on her face and she's sitting across from me, and I'm like, 'I can't do this'....

Channing Tatum & Hazel Eyed Jenna Dewan Are A Gorgeous Couple At 'Haywire' Premiere

Jenna Dewan
Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan attended the "Haywire" Los Angeles premiere yesterday. Jenna looked stunning in a white lace gown, while Channing was dapper in a blue suit. We think the pair (who met on the set of "Step Up" in 2006) are one of the most attractive couples in Hollywood. What do you think?

"Haywire" centers on mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano who plays a lethal government contractor who's betrayed by her own agency. Channing co-stars. The actor is on the rise. He will appear in several upcoming films, including "21 Jump Street," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" and "Magi...

Celebrities That Turn 30 in 2012
It's hard to believe for many of us the 1982 was 30 years ago. In that year, Ronald Reagan was President, Joe Montana was the Superbowl XVI MVP and the space shuttle Columbia made its first mission.

In movies, E.T., Tootsie and Gandhi ruled the box office while Chariots of Fire took best picture at the Academy Awards that year. Also taking home Oscar gold for best actor and actress in 1982 respectively were Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda for On Golden Pond. In music Michael Jackson released Thriller which sold more than 25 million copies, becoming the biggest selling album in history.
