Review: 'Here Comes The Boom' A Family Fun Feel Good Comedy

10/13/2012 9:00am EDT
'Here Comes The Boom
Ten years ago, Scott Voss (Kevin James) was an excellent high school biology teacher. He was even voted 'Teacher of the Year'.

But ten years is a long time. FLASH forward to the present...Scott couldn't care less about teaching. He works only to bring home a paycheck and is completely disillusioned with a school system that treats students like 'cattle'...who's only interested in moving them in and out, as quickly and as cheaply as possible.

To make matters worse, a budget crisis hits the school and by the end of the year, all extracurricular activities (except football, of course) will b...

Here's one for the guys and the gals. We spotted Salma Hayek on her way into the "Late Show With David Letterman" on Wednesday having a little fun with some of New York City's finest.

The actress hung out with a group of sexy firefighters and at one point even played with a piece of their equipment. Sound scandalous? Nope! She just posed for photos while grabbing one of their hoses.

Hayek looked sleek and sexy in a leather skirt, satin jacket and fishnet stockings. She wore multiple rings and other jewelry, including a cuff on her right hand. She recently told Harper's Baazar that she's "...

What Are The Top 14 Most Memorable Topless Scenes On Film?

10/10/2012 9:06pm EDT
Phoebe Catest Fast Times at Ridgemont High
There are dozens of actresses who have no problem taking off their tops for the sake of a movie role, and their choices can end up either hurting or helping their careers.

Some stars say they'd do it only if the "right role" came along; and others simply refuse to go topless for any reason. And sometimes an actress's decision to go topless for a role can overshadow the movie itself -- which can be good (Demi Moore in Striptease) or bad (Jessica Biel in Powder Blue).

With the advent of the internet, many of these scenes now live on forever, but with topless and nude scenes a-dime-a-dozen, ...

Salma Hayek
Salma Hayek graces the pages of the November issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, showing off her sexy curves and even going topless in one hot shot.

The star of Here Comes the Boom, which opens this Friday, talked about getting older as an actress and her lack of desire to be the beautiful and thin.

"The worst thing you can be in Hollywood is a woman and over 40," she says. "On top of that, I have an accent, am dyslexic, short and chubby. You name it I have it, but I am here. I must be the luckiest girl in the world to be working."

The wife of French billionaire François-Henri Pinault also shar...

Jada Pinkett-Smith
Jada Pinkett-Smith didn't think twice when her friend Salma Hayek called on her and asked her to strip down and film a new music video completely nude, because the video was done to raise awareness of the horrors of human trafficking.

The hard-hitting promo for "Nada Se Compara," performed by Pinkett-Smith's band Wicked Evolution, is part of the Don't Sell Bodies campaign against slavery. The song was released a few months ago and is finally getting some visibility thanks to Jada's recent interview in More magazine.

"I can't tell you how many times I've been asked to take my clothes off, ...

Salma Hayek keeps her weight in check by stepping on the scale daily and declining rich French food and fine wine when she hits her "alarm number".

The Mexican actress, who lives in France with her businessman husband Francois-Henri Pinault and their daughter, admits she often overindulges when it comes to her adopted country's cuisine - but she knows when she's gone too far.

She tells the new issue of More magazine, "I'm not a skinny girl. I push it. I'm at the limit of chubbiness at all times, but I'm happy at all times.

"Everybody has a weakness (and) mine is food. If you love food...

On Wednesday, Oliver Stone was photographed appearing to grab Salma Hayek's breasts at the "Savages" London premiere.

The director and cast walked the red carpet at the Mandarin Oriental hotel to promote the film in which Hayek plays the leader of a Mexican drug cartel.

However, things got awkward when Stone seemed mesmerized by the actress' busty figure, and he couldn't resist copping a feel in front of photographers.

Hayek, 46, who is married to French fashion mogul Francois-Henri Pinault, tried to blow off the odd encounter by laughing uncomfortably. Stone, 66, has been married for 15...

"Grown Ups 2" is causing a stink in Massachusetts. Adam Sandler has been shooting the sequel to his hit 2010 comedy in the North Shore region of the state, but the crew ran into trouble after building a sound stage in Phillips Park.

Several skunks have moved into a group of trees planted for the film and have been stealing food from the catering tables.

Supermodel Linda Evangelista has sensationally accused Salma Hayek's fashion mogul husband of advising her to have an abortion after she fell pregnant with his child.

The former runway beauty made the headline-grabbing claim in New York's Manhattan Family Court on Thursday as the first day of her child support trial with Francois-Henri Pinault got underway.

Cameron Diaz Looks A Bit Old Lady-ish At CinemaCon

4/26/2012 10:30am EDT
Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz turns 40 in August, but that doesn't mean she has to look like it! She went to CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday, and something about her hair and dress make her appear older than her age (at least by Hollywood standards).

We've always loved Cameron's blonde locks, but the short 'do with side swept bangs isn't her best look. The plain black dress isn't too bad, but it's not very exciting either.

Many female stars over 40 look great, including Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Salma Hayek. We hope when Cameron reaches the milestone birthday this summer that she remembers age ...

The Oscar-nominated Frida star struggled with love throughout much of her life and when she reached her 30s, the Mexican beauty admits she was so set on having a family, she looked into ways on how to become a single mum.

David Beckham has joined the stars of a new Burger King ad campaign in America by appearing in a dream sequence to promote the fast food chain's new smoothie line.

The soccer star and model becomes the fantasy figure of both a check-out assistant and her male manager when he appears at the counter of a BK diner in the ad.

The new campaign hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons earlier this week when a promo featuring Mary J. Blige singing about Burger King's new fried chicken menu item was released online prematurely.

She tells Lucky magazine, "You want to talk about bad skin? I had acne. And this acne was so bad it sent me into severe, severe depression.

"Like I couldn't leave the house. The next stage with that sort of depression is food - too little or...
