Evil & Enticing: The Sexiest Female Villains On Film
There's nothing sweet about this list of sexy, strong-willed lady villains. They have graced the big screen with their big personalities and are the hottest characters we love to hate.

Angelina Jolie, "Maleficent" (2014)

The film centers on Maleficent, a young, pure-hearted girl who protects her forest kingdom but is betrayed. Seeking revenge, she feuds with the invading king's successor and places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. And then she forms a bond with the little girl, and everything changes...

During Disney's annual fan convention in Anaheim, Calif., in 2013, Jolie told ...

Celebrities Who Escaped From Cults
Michelle Pfeiffer stunned fans in 2013 when she confessed she once belonged to a cult that discouraged its members from eating and drinking.

Followers of Breatharianism believe food is unnecessary and sunlight can provide all the nourishment the body needs. The belief has attracted wide criticism and has been linked to a number of deaths.

The actress told Britain's Sunday Telegraph: "They were very controlling. I wasn't living with them but I was there a lot and they were always telling me I needed to come more. I had to pay for all the time I was there, so it was financially very drainin...

The 12 actors listed below have embodied the darkest characters in cinema and TV we love to hate, and in turn villains they were born to portray.

1. Margaret Hamilton - In the spirit of Halloween, let’s top the list with the Wicked West of the West from “The Wizard of Oz.” The primate-loving, shoe-obsessed green-skinned villain ranked Number 4 in American Film Institute’s 2003 listing of 50...

Glenn Close
Glenn Close has revealed she was entrenched in a religious cult for 15 years while growing up. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress opened up about her time as a member of the Moral Re-Armament (MRA), which she joined with her father and siblings.

She was able to find the strength at age 22 to leave.

She explained, "You basically weren't allowed to do anything, or you were made to feel guilty about any unnatural desire. If you talk to anybody who was in a group that basically dictates how you're supposed to live and what you're supposed to say and how you're suppose...

Celebrities With Royal Blood
There's Hollywood royalty, and then there's the blue blood ancestry that neither talent (nor money) can buy.

Angelina Jolie was born in Los Angeles, Calif., to actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. The "Malificent" star's maternal grandfather was French Canadian, while her maternal grandmother was Dutch and German.

It's believed that Jolie is related, on her mother's side, to French King Philip II, known as Philip Augustus. He ruled from 1180 to 1223. Philip transformed France from a small feudal state into the wealthiest and most powerful country in Europe.

Gap-toothed model/actress Lauren Hutton (born Nov. 17, 1943) has appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine 25 times and is a former Playboy bunny. She's starred in films such as "American Gigolo" and "Once Bitten" as well as the 80's primetime soap "Falcon Crest."

She once told a reporter why she wouldn't get plastic surgery: "Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be. I don't think I will ever cut my face, because once I cut it, I'll never know where I've been."

Way to go, Lauren!

Five Celebrities Who Shockingly Haven't Won An Oscar
Every actor and actress dreams of winning an Academy Award, but the coveted Oscar continues to be elusive to some of our most popular stars.

For instance, Glenn Close has been nominated a staggering six times (for "The World According To Garp," "The Big Chill," "The Natural," "Fatal Attraction," "Dangerous Liasons" and "Albert Nobbs"), but she still hasn't walked away with the statue.

Glenn Close Laments 'Fatal Attraction' Role

6/5/2013 6:43pm EDT
Glenn Close
Glenn Close regrets portraying a knife-wielding stalker in Fatal Attraction as she is convinced her most famous film role contributed to the stigmatization of mental health issues.

Close won an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of disturbed Alex Forrest, a woman who pursues a married man, played by Michael Douglas, and even boils his family's pet rabbit after he ends their affair in the 1987 thriller.

The film gave rise to the unflattering term 'bunny boiler' for an unstable woman, and Close, whose sister and nephew both suffer mental health problems, insists she now wishes she had don...

Both awards went to Martin Scorsese's 3D family film Hugo, quickly setting the tone for a possible upset in the coveted Best Picture category at the end of the ceremony.

2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...
