Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart Dress In Drag For Jenny Lewis Vid
Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson had a gender bending experience while making the new music video for pal Jenny Lewis's "Just One of the Guys."

At the start of the video the actresses actually look a bit sexy in their all-white menswear, but hilarity ensues when you see them in track suits, baseball caps, mustaches and even a rat tail.

Singer-songwriter Lewis, whose new disc "Voyager" is her first solo album in six years, told GQ of the shoot: "We screamed with laughter all day, huddled behind the monitor. I haven't laughed that hard since 'What About Bob?' came out on laser...

Jason Coleman's Top Five Male & Female Performances

I am very happy for this particular acting "best of" list this year, mostly because notable films that didn’t make it to my Top Ten still had some memorable performances.  So even though movies like "American Hustle," "12 Years A Slave" and "Frances Ha" didn’t make the final film cut, the acting work within is lovingly highlighted here.  From oddballs to slaves, sassy ice cream truck workers to sexy hustlers here are my..."Best of 2013 - Top Five Male & Female Performances."

'The United States Of Tara’s' Season And Show Finale ‘Best Parts’

June 21st, 2011 11:45pm EDT
United States Of Tara finale
I am so going to miss The United States of Tara, and the finale exemplified many of the reasons why this show should have been renewed. The acting is superb, the characters well realized, and the comedy/drama fine line walked so exquisitely that the viewer truly doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

The season and show finale, “Best Parts,” began where the last episode ended – as Tara leaped from a bridge into the water below. Quick cut to Tara in an abandoned cellar, dunking alter Bryce headfirst into a vat of murky water. Between water-boarding dips, Tara tells Bryce that she deserves be...
