Kristen Stewart
It's part of a celebrity's job to show up to public events, pose for photographers, and sign autographs for fans. But some of them don't really look like they're enjoying their time in the spotlight.

Sometimes a pout is sexy. Other times, it's just a turn off. It makes us wonder why they're so grumpy. Wipe that smug look off your face and show us some teeth!

'Side Effects': A Satisfying Thriller With Twists & Turns You Won't See Coming

February 8th, 2013 7:00pm EST
Side Effects
When we meet Emily (Rooney Mara) she is picking up her husband, Martin (Channing Tatum) from prison.  He was sentenced to four years for inside trading.

Once living the high life, the couple are now reduced to sharing a small apartment in a not so very fashionable New York City neighborhood.

Martin takes this all in stride.  He believes that one day soon, he'll be back on top.

Emily, on the other hand, is not doing too good.  That's especially obvious, when she drives her car into a brick wall and winds up in the hospital.

After her failed suicide attempt, psychiatrist, Jonathan Banks...

Rooney Mara Kept Her Strawberry Blonde Merkin After 'Dragon Tattoo' Filming

February 8th, 2013 1:15pm EST
Rooney Mara
Rooney Mara insisted on wearing a strawberry blonde pubic wig for her role as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo because the heroine of the story was a red head in author STIEG LARSSON's books.

The brunette admits she came up with the idea of matching her hair color to that of her literary character because she wanted Salander to look just like the girl in the book trilogy.

Mara explains, "I had to wear a merkin... They didn't ask me to but I'm naked so much in it (movie) I wanted one. It felt like a little fur bikini... and I had them make it strawberry blonde."

15 Celebrities Who Chopped Off Their Hair

A truly daring star experiments with her hair for a film role or just because she wants to mix it up. But not everyone in Hollywood is so adventurous (could you see Angelina Jolie opting for a pixie cut? Probably not.)

Over the weekend, Miley Cyrus shocked fans by chopping off her newly blonde hair. Fans berated her on Twitter for taking the chance, and she responded with comments such "feel so happy, pretty, and free."

It is certainly liberating for a famous woman who is identified with a certain look to switch it up. In 2010, "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson revealed her newly shorn lock...

MTV Movie Award Surprises: Can 'The Help' Beat 'Hunger Games?'

May 1st, 2012 3:30pm EDT
MTV Movie Award Surprises
The MTV Movie Awards have their finger on the pulse of 2011/2012 cinema with tons of nominations for The Hunger Games, Bridesmaids and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2. If they’re really current, Hunger Games will sweep but there are a few interesting surprises here too.

The Help is a nominee for best picture. Maybe it’ll be the dark horse winner and make up for losing the Oscar? Only if Hunger Games and Bridesmaids split the vote. It’s interesting that MTV acknowledges the popular historical drama, perhaps doing its part for civil rights education.

For best male performance, he...

A Red Headed Rooney Mara Is Nearly Unrecognizable On 'Bitter Pill' Set (Photos)

April 10th, 2012 2:00pm EDT
Rooney Mara in Bitter Pill
We spotted Rooney Mara on the set of her new film "The Bitter Pill" in New York City today. The actress looks completely different than she has in recent months with long red hair.

Last year she dyed and chopped off her brown hair to film "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." She ended up keeping the sharp, sophisticated look. We think the long red hair softens her features and makes her look younger.

Steven Soderbergh directs the psychological thriller starring Mara as a woman who turns to drugs in order to deal with her husband (Channing Tatum) being released from jail. Jude Law also star...

Oscars 2012
The Academy Awards aren't just about the movies - they're about the fashion and what the stars wore on the red carpet at the year's biggest event.

This year, much like the ceremony itself, there were few surprises and all the stars looked fabulous on the red carpet outside the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. Well, okay - Kristen Wiig's brown J. Mendel dress and Meryl Streep's gold Lanvin gown? Not so much.

This year's highlights include Angelina Jolie looking stunning - although also a bit thin - in a black Atelier Versace dress that's almost an exact match of the one Jennifer Aniston wore ...

'The Artist' & 'Hugo' Top Oscars With Five Wins Each (Full List Of Academy Award Winners)

Tom Hanks, who ended last year's Academy Awards by announcing Best Picture winner The King's Speech, started things off at this year's Oscars by handing out the evening's first two awards, for Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction. Both awards went to Martin Scorsese's 3D family film Hugo, quickly setting the tone for a possible upset in the coveted Best Picture category at the end of the ceremony.

But that wasn't to be, as frontrunner The Artist took most of the night's major awards, including Best Picture, Actor (Jean Dujardin) and Director (Michel Hazanavicius).

Rooney Mara Embraces The Low Cut Dress Trend

We love Rooney Mara, but somehow her look at the Costume Designers Guild Awards left us feeling a bit flat.

Low cut, cleavage baring dresses are very popular these days (just check out Rihanna's recent red carpet dresses), but we think Rooney looks a little bland in her purple sleeveless dress. What do you think?

The "Dragon Tattoo" star stars in the upcoming film "Bitter Pilm" about a woman who turns to drugs in order to deal with her husband (Channing Tatum) being released from jail.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the thrilling box office hit that won Rooney Mara a Golden Globe nomination, has been banned in India. Censors shelved the film citing "unsuitable sex scenes," Sony Pictures said this week.

Sorry cinema fans, David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo won't be hitting theaters in India after all.

The American version of the popular who-dun-it will not be released in India on Feb. 10, as previously planned, after the film's director refused to cut graphic sex scenes from the movie, in compliance with India's classification board.

Inside Look At The 84th Academy Awards Nomination Announcements (Video)

Live From The Academy Award Nominations
Like last year, the Oscar Nominations announcement morning always proves to be an early morning. I was up at 2:15 AM to conquer the pinnacle of the awards show season, the Academy Awards. I was interested to see how the Academy would vote this year with a new voting system for Best Picture, no clear frontrunner in the race, and a plethora of names being bandied about in the acting categories. The Academy did not disappoint this year with fresh faces, a nod to comedy, and a surprising nine Best Picture nominees instead of the predicted six or eight nominees.
