Friends With Benefits
A New York headhunter (Mila Kunis) enters into a no-strings-attached relationship with her latest client (Justin Timberlake) but finds things getting unexpectedly complicated when emotions enter the picture in "Friends With Benefits."

Need some incentive to see the film? Two hot, naked stars!

While promoting the film last summer Mila talked about calling in a butt double for her naked scenes opposite Justin. She explained, "You got side boob out of me. That's a lot. I was compromising - you get side boob or you get butt. You don't get both in one movie."

Justin also bares all in the...

Mila Kunis And Justin Timberlake Get Steamy In 'Friends With Benefits' (Video)

4/27/2011 3:00pm EDT
The first “Friends With Benefits” trailer came out around the time that “Black Swan” was released, both featuring Mila Kunis, giving moviegoers a glimpse of what to expect next from the Oscar nominated actress. The title pretty much explains everything. Enter Mila Kunis, Friend A. Enter Justin Timberlake, Friend B. Together, they have benefits – and I’m not talking about health insurance.

But alas, the plot thickens. Another trailer was released recently giving movie fans a better glimpse of what’s to come. Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are friends who have both just been conveniently d...

Patricia Clarkson looked fab in a bronze dress at the opening night production of "Das Rheingold" at the Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center, New York City. If only we could look this great at 50!

Patricia is a big fan of Helen Mirren's assets. She explained, "It's cool we've seen her breasts. I mean, they're as fabulous as her acting." We could say the same about you, Patricia!

Patricia recently starred in the film "Legendary" about a book-smart teenager who joins his school's wrestling team as a way to reunite his surviving family members, who split apart after the death of his f...

Aly Michalka
"Hellcats" star Aly Michalka looked hot in a little black dress at the "Easy A" premiere in Los Angeles on Monday. We're not crazy about the little cape-like part of her ensemble, but since she looks so good we'll overlook it.

On her new CW series Aly, of the teen duo Aly & A.J., plays a law student who has to join the cheer leading squad to stay in school.

Starpulse recently asked if she would be singing on the series. She explained, "My music is very special to me, and I take it extremely seriously.

It's something that's sacred, that my career as an actor is separate, but when it's ...

Patricia Clarkson is a big fan of Helen Mirren's assets.

She explained, "It's cool we've seen her breasts. I mean, they're as fabulous as her acting."

Patricia, 50, wonders why she never landed racy acting roles when she was young and fit.

She said, "Now people want me to be naked and sexy! And I'm like, 'Where was that when everything was up high?!'"

Helen recently starred in "Love Ranch," which explores the rift that opens between Grace and Charlie Bontempo - the husband-and-wife owners of Nevada's first legal brothel.

Woody Allen, Larry David, Evan Rachel Wood & Others Discuss 'Whatever Works'

Whatever Works
Woody Allen, Larry David, Patricia Clarkson and Evan Rachel Wood sat down to discuss their new film, "Whatever Works," in theaters June 19. I asked Woody if any changes were made to the script -- a script he wrote in the 1970's -- with the casting of Larry David and asked Larry if he ever felt too much "Larry David" was ever coming out in his performance. Also discussed is their love -- or in Larry David's case, disdain, -- for New York and the slim possibilities that a Woody Allen film will ever be adapted for Broadway.

Mike: When Larry David was cast, did you re-write anything to take ...

Bill Pullman Discusses 'Phoebe in Wonderland', Looks Back At 'Independence Day' And 'Spaceballs'

Bill Pullman
Sometimes what is brutally obvious to an outsider can, and does, leave the closest to a situation heartbreakingly oblivious. Phoebe in Wonderland dives head-first into this very scenario and the conflicting choices of treating a disorder by over-medicating, under-medicating or the act of self-medicating. By enshrouding oneself in a project that they love so dearly, even the symptoms of that disorder get lost in the axis of that passion.

Elle Fanning, Felicity Huffman, Bill Pullman, Patricia Clarkson and Campbell Scott steer this story down to the basic human elements of a parent's love...
