Helen Hunt, 50, Rocks A One-Piece Swimsuit, Sexy Wetsuit On 'Ride' Set

August 6th, 2013 9:02am EDT
Helen Hunt
Helen Hunt has definitely still got it. We spotted the actress, who turned 50 in June, wearing a black one-piece swimsuit while filming scenes for her upcoming movie "Ride" in Los Angeles.

Hunt also put on a skintight wetsuit while strolling along the beach with a surfboard.

She looked fantastic, which is no surprise since fans caught a glimpse of her flawless naked body in last year's "The Sessions." She was nominated for an Academy Award for her role as a sex surrogate.

In "Ride," Hunt plays a woman who travels across the country to California to be with her son after he decides to dro...

Fashion Fails: A Night At The Oscars And Bonus Bieber

March 3rd, 2013 6:07pm EST
Anne Hathaway
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! Today we get to review the fails from the Oscars red carpet, where we were treated to some of the best styles of the year... and some of the worst.

Anne Hathaway's dress was beautiful in many ways, especially considering she had to swap out her first choice at the last minute. However, it was all overshadowed by the darts in her top, something she felt she had to apologize for after the show.

We understand in Salma Hayek felt...

85th Academy Awards Fashion: The Best & Worst

85th Academy Awards Fashion: The Best & Worst
The biggest event of the year in Hollywood took place on Sunday night - The 85th Annual Academy Awards - and the stars primped and preened for their red carpet appearances.

There weren't any major fashion flubs (and admit it, that's one of the reasons you tuned in to watch!) but there were a few style missteps. For example, usually a "best" list regular, Halle Berry looked a little too space age in a black and silver heavily striped Versace gown.

Kristen Stewart also disappointed in a Remm Acra lace dress that didn't do much for her skin tone nor her figure.

Conversely, Jennifer Aniston'...

Will Anne Hathaway's Performance In 'Les Miserables' Bring Oscar Gold?

February 24th, 2013 6:30pm EST
Les Miserables
One take. That's all it took Anne Hathaway to land both an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress AND cement herself as the favorite to win the award.

Her brief appearance in Tom Hooper's adaptation of Les Miserables was nothing short of epic, nailing her performance of "I Dreamed A Dream" in just one take. Hathaway gives off so much emotion during the scene that it's hard to get through it with a dry eye. Not to mention she's weeping herself throughout the sad song.

So who's she up against?

Only two-time Oscar winner Sally Field, whose portrayal of the batsh*t crazy Mary Todd Linc...

'Everyone Wins At The Oscars' Gift Bag Includes Circus Lessons, Condoms & A 'Vampire Facelift'

February 24th, 2013 11:04am EST
Oscars 2013
Hey Jennifer Lawrence, don't worry if you don't land an Academy Award for your performance in Silver Linings Playbook (you will), because all the nominees who aren't bringing home an Oscar statue this year will get a goodie-bag worth $45,000 as a consolation prize (which will only cost them about $10,000 in taxes to keep).

Gift bags containing all sorts of expensive tchotchkes are nothing new at awards ceremonies like the Oscars, Emmys and Grammys. They started out as a way for companies to get the stars photographed with their wares in exchange for free stuff, ultimately evolving into a p...

2013 SAG Awards Fashion: Black, Navy Blue & Neutral Gowns Dominate

January 28th, 2013 9:19am EST
Jaimie Alexander
As we inch closer to the Academy Awards, tons of stars celebrated themselves at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday night.

Jaimie Alexander of "The Last Stand" (above) was one of the few celebs who showed some skin on the red carpet in a low-cut black Marc Bouwer gown. Most opted for more conservative ensembles in black, navy blue, and other neutrals.

A handful stood out in bright colorful gowns, including Jessica Chastain and Kaley Cuoco in bright red and Lea Michele in a bright pink dress.

Jennifer Garner, whose husband Ben Affleck is earning accolades for "Argo," looked ele...

2013 Golden Globe Awards Fashion: Stars Dazzle In Black, White & Red

Golden Globes 2013 Fashion
Sunday night was one of the of the biggest events in Hollywood - the 2013 Golden Globes Awards. Red, white and black were some of the more popular choices on the red carpet, with stars such as Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Garner, Claire Danes, Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence opting for crimson gowns.

Hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey wore black and white, and Eva Longoria looked very leggy in a black gown with a slit up the thigh. Salma Hayek also stunned in a strapless black dress that showed off her curvy figure. Rachel Weisz wore black with a sheer polka dot skirt and her best accessor...

Best & Worst Dressed At The 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

January 11th, 2013 9:01am EST
Critic's Choice Awards Fashion
On the heels of Wednesday's People's Choice Awards, the stars filled the red carpet at the 18th Annual Critic's Choice Movie Awards on Thursday.

Jennifer Lawrence, who took home the Best Actress In A Comedy award for "Silver Linings Playbook," looked incredible in a black draped Gurung gown with a train.

Also a hit was "Les Miserables" actress Anne Hathaway in a metallic floor-length Oscar de la Renta gown.

Hathaway's co-star Amanda Seyfried didn't impress us so much with her topknot hairstyle and Mario Schwab blue lace dress.

And perhaps Eva Longoria looked better in person, but her Mo...

Helen Hunt & Helen Mirren
Two famous Helens joined forces at the 24th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala in California over the weekend.

Helen Hunt, 49, and Helen Mirren, 67, looked fab and age defying as they posed together on the red carpet wearing blue and red gowns.

Mirren recently celebrated the installation of her Hollywood Walk of Fame star. Her star sits on Hollywood Boulevard alongside fellow British actor Colin Firth.

Mirren starred in 2012's "Hitchcock" opposite Anthony Hopkins. She is currently filming spy flick "Red 2" with Hopkins, Bruce Willis, Catherin Zeta-Jones and Mary-...

The biggest and most memorable event of 1963 was the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, its 50th anniversary will be marked on November 22. The civil rights movement was in full swing as Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I have a dream" speech and the Vietnam conflict had begun. Gas was 29 cents a gallon and the average cost for a new home was $12,560.

'The Sessions' A Moving True Story With Oscar Worthy Performances by Helen Hunt & John Hawkes

October 19th, 2012 10:40am EDT
The Sessions
Every so often a film comes along that lifts your spirits and makes you feel that anything and everything is possible.

'The Sessions' starring John Hawkes and Helen Hunt is just such a film.

This is the true story of a man named Mark O'Brien, who lived in Berkeley CA in the 1980's.

Mark is different from most people. He contacted polio as a child and is confined to an Iron Lung. The only part of his body that isn't paralyzed is his head, which he can move slightly to the side. He is also dependent on a breathing tube and a caregiver.

But this isn't the tale of a disabled dude that lie...

Helen Hunt Urges Parents To Take Teens To See 'The Sessions'

Actress Helen Hunt is urging parents to take their teenagers to see her new movie The Sessions - even though she gets naked in the film for lovemaking sessions with an incapacitated polio victim.

Hunt bares all for the movie and though she accepts parents might not want their kids to see the film, the actress is convinced it offers valuable lessons about sex and sensuality.

She tells WENN, "I want people to take their 15 and 16-year-old kids to it. I really think it's a perfect movie for kids of that age to see. A lot of kids I know are feeling their way in the dark when it comes to sex...

Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Trancers'

Trancers
Feeling a tad on the nostalgic side this week, I noted that two selections in my Friday series have an actor in common and it led me to think – what is his best work? Welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! The actor in question is the one and only Tim Thomerson (the previous selections were "Cherry 2000" and "Near Dark!") and this weeks’ flick brought the fare-haired actor to big B-movie fame. He plays a hard boiled cop from the future sent back in time to stop a madman. Dry hair’s for squids – it’s the 1985 sci-fi adventure..."Trancers."

And she doesn't appear to be slowing down with age - on Monday night bosses at network NBC paid tribute to the legend's career by airing a star-studded TV special, which featured Hugh Jackman and Carol Burnett, among others, paying tribute to the birthday girl - and she is just about to ...

Paul Reiser Show
Paul Reiser hasn’t been on television in a while. That’s the case in real life, and it’s also the case on Reiser’s new NBC sitcom, “The Paul Reiser Show,” which the actor co-wrote and produced. Like a diet version of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The Paul Reiser Show” follows a fictionalized version of Reiser’s life 11 years after the end of his star making role in “Mad About You.” Struggling with his fading celebrity and with a wealth of free time, Reiser spends his days wrestling with his kids’ school projects, hanging out with a disparate group of chuckleheads that he calls his friends, and t...

One-armed surfer Bethany Hamilton made actress Helen Hunt feel inadequate when they first hit the waves together in Hawaii - by riding in backwards.

Hunt plays Hamilton's mom in the upcoming biopic "Soul Surfer" and admits she thought she was a good surfer until she paddled out with the shark-bite victim.

She says, "I surfed with her - my boyfriend, myself and her - and we surfed and we caught a wave together and the two of us were thinking, 'We're pretty fantastic...' and I found out later is that she had turned and was surfing in backwards because it was such a ridiculously small break ...

Carrie Underwood was in awe of her big-screen debut in Soul Surfer - because she was convinced her acting skills would sink alongside her co-stars Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid.

Best Movies Set In Cold Locations

Often times, weather plays an integral role in films, whether it be that it helps to set the tone, has symbolic significance, or makes a kissing scene all the more steamy, like the passionate lip-lock between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in "The Notebook" (2004), whose sexiness skyrocketed thanks to it taking place during a downpour. Sometimes the weather even takes on a life of its own, like in the film "Twister" (1996), in which the tornado acts as just as much of a protagonist as both Helen Hunt's and Bill Paxton's characters.

So now, with winter officially getting its frosty self...

Yes, Oscar night. You can bet on the Oscars on various websites, at various casinos, and probably in many illegal outlets as well (though we discourage this practice). What does each betting spot have in common? They probably have no idea how to handicap the race, giving the savvy better tremendous odds of winning big.

The Underrated Greg Kinnear

October 27th, 2008 12:34pm EDT
Greg Kinnear
He's that guy in decently funded movies you can't remember. The writing is always good to great, and you're not angry for watching one of his movies instead of The Shawshank Redemption (seriously, when is that NOT on TV?) or asking for your money back outside the theater. His work may not be critically underrated, but he's not a rock solid A-lister just either. With actors like William H. Macy and Tom Hanks out there, getting recognition for expanding on his most likeable qualities might be difficult. He may continue to slip by under the fickle radar of celebrity for a little longer.

Ever hear the theory that everyone has a twin? Some believe that each and every person has a double somewhere on Earth. Whether that theory is true is debatable. However, it's uncanny how some celebrities resemble each other. Sometimes it's an obvious trait: similar hairstyle, body type or facial features. Other times it's more subtle: similar roles or names.

Whatever the reason, the following stars have something about them that makes them look like another famous somebody. And that's not always a good thing.

Celebrity Horoscope: Gemini

Angelina Jolie
Gemini (May 22-June 21) are said to have a dual nature. The astrological symbol for Gemini is the Roman numeral for two, representing twins and duality.

Twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are Geminis. Last year the 21-year-old power duo earned $17 million, and they are planning on releasing a coffee table book about their fashion inspirations.

Gemini can be fickle. Those born under this sign represent the yin and the yang, or the law of opposites. It can be no coincidence that Anne Heche is a Gemini. She famously dated Ellen DeGeneres but later married a man. She di...
