Indonesia Is Latest Nation To Ban Biblical Epic 'Noah'
Indonesia is the latest country to ban Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic "Noah," which stars Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.

The nation is the latest in a growing list of Muslim countries refusing to show the film on the grounds that Noah was a prophet, and Islamic culture forbids the depiction of prophets in film and imagery.

Numerous Middle Eastern countries have already banned the film, including Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

Indonesia's censorship board voted unanimously to ban the film, which tells the story of the Great Flood and hits theaters on Friday.

Jennifer Connelly: 'Religious experts are coming round to Noah'

March 21st, 2014 4:10am EDT
Jennifer Connelly
Noah star Jennifer Connelly insists religious leaders are beginning to soften their criticism of the film after studio bosses agreed to make changes to the biblical epic's marketing campaign.

The actress, who plays ark-builder Noah's wife Naameh opposite Russell Crowe in the movie, confirms reports suggesting the film drew early criticism for straying too far from the Bible's account of the Great Flood.

Keen to get support from religious leaders in the U.S., Paramount bosses made cuts of the movie to screen test them for various Christian conferences, and then agreed to make changes when ...

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!

It appears many celebrities are going into hiding after the Oscars - think of it like bears going into hibernation except they have movies to promote. Still, a handful of stars wore questionable attire this week:

Jennifer Connelly found working with husband 'strange'

March 6th, 2014 11:20pm EST
Jennifer Connelly
Jennifer Connelly found it "strange" going to work with her husband every morning for 'Shelter'.
The actress was directed by Paul Bettany in the new movie - in which she stars as a homeless person - and even though they've been married for more than a decade, it was weird for them to be on the same set together.
She told DuJour magazine: "It was kind of strange, going to work in the morning with the director.
"But it really seemed to come quite naturally to him - phew - and it was an amazing experience to have had together."
The 43-year-old star added she didn't even get preferential treatm...

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!

Keri Hilson wore this tight dress to the About Last Night premiere, and we don't love the contrast of magenta and olive green. The patterns are also tacky, almost rug-like.

Amal Fashanu wore this dress, which has quite a bit going on: there's the brick wall giving way to nature, see-through sleeves, and a furry lump. The dress would be quite beautiful without those last two additions, especially the attached bulge of black fur....

Jennifer Connelly wouldn't 'torture' herself for role

January 21st, 2014 3:20pm EST
Jennifer Connelly
Jennifer Connelly would never "torture" herself to be considered beautiful.
The 'Requiem for a Dream' star refuses to chase Hollywood ideals of what is considered good looking, as she thinks they would make her go crazy.
She told Allure magazine: "The thing that really matters to me is well-being and happiness. Maybe it comes from knowing people who have tortured themselves trying to meet these strangely narrow and rigorous definition of what our culture thinks is beautiful."
The 43-year-old actress, who is married to fellow movie star Paul Bettany, also talked about her on-screen chemistr...

Jennifer Connelly
Jennifer Connelly felt "safe" being directed by her husband.
The 43-year-old actress stars in 'Shelter', which her actor spouse Paul Bettany has also written, and says knowing he was in charge made her less worried about "making a fool" of herself.
She said: "One couldn't feel more safe as an actor than knowing that the director's your husband. It's like, Oh, if I really make a fool of myself, I can just say, 'Honey, can you please not put that in the movie?' "
The actress has starred in three movies with Russell Crowe - 'A Beautiful Mind', 'Winter's Tale' and 'Noah' and he thinks they wor...

Interview: Billy Campbell Talks 'The Rocketeer' Twenty Years Later

The Rocketeer photo
I have to say up front that I adore "The Rocketeer." I even remember where first I saw it – at the famed Stanley Theater on Granville Street in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. With its neoclassical interior and art deco exterior, it was the perfect place to see a film with such an equally memorable and magical art design like "The Rocketeer." (Though sadly the theater closed down soon after – they don't make ‘em like they used to!) Well, Joe Johnston’s classic comic book-come-to-life "The Rocketeer" is hitting it’s 20th Anniversary with a new Blu-ray Edition (out Dec. 13 from Walt ...

December saw a series of scandals as the stars brought a touch of sex and drugs to the festive season - and wildchild Miley Cyrus led the way. The former Disney star ended 2010 by reminding us all she's a grown up now after she was caught on camera smoking legal hallucinogenic Salvia from a bong, and hit headlines again days later when she was pictured in a girl-on-girl clinch and exposing her bra while surrounded by hunky men.

Christina Hendricks May Be Hot, But In Hollywood Thin Remains In

Christina Hendricks vs Hollipops
Hollywood’s IT girl of the moment is Christina Hendricks, the voluptuous redhead who plays über-secretary Joan Harris on AMC’s Mad Men. Hendricks (for those of you not paying attention) is a throwback to an era of Jayne Mansfield and Russ Meyer, the antithesis of the Size 0 pretzel sticks dominating the tube and screen. But with Hendricks in the running for Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, could she signal a new standard of beauty in Hollywood?

Don’t hold your breath.

This is not to say that Christina Hendricks isn’t hot. Oh, she most undoubtedly is. But part of the allure of the actress li...

"She hates it," Bettany said while he was previewing Legion at San Diego Comic Con. "She hates it when I get fit, because she says, 'You look like everybody I refused to go out with in college.' So she's never impressed by that sort of thing. She's impressed by me saying that I read Remembrance of Things past.'"
