Hollywood Unwrapped: Must Not See TV

I have a question to ask all of the readers of this column. Do we really have Hollywood stars or real actors that we had in the past? Gone are the days when studios had an iron claw on the stars and being a celebrity actually meant something.

Yes, today we still have a handful of Academy Award winning movie stars such as Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, and Clint Eastwood. We don’t have stars like Steve McQueen, James Dean or an Audrey Hepburn. But that's on the big screen.

Today, television is packed with reality shows that makes us lose brain cells and it seems like we be...

Just Being Audrey
When Audrey Hepburn starred in a movie, she lit up the screen. Her unique sense of fashion, her grace, and, most important, her spirit made her beloved by generations. But her life offscreen was even more luminous.

As a little girl growing up in Nazi-occupied Europe, she learned early on that true kindness is the greatest measure of a person—and it was a lesson she embodied as she became one of the first actresses to use her celebrity to shine a light on impoverished children throughout the world.

This is Audrey as a little girl, an actress, an icon, an inspiration; this is Audrey just b...

"Let Me In" star Chloe Moretz has apologized to Paramount Studios bosses after her recent 13th birthday screening party there turned into a sticky mess as her ill-mannered friends ran riot.
