'Penny Dreadful': 5 Monsters We'd Like Added To The Mix (And Who
On paper, Showtime's monster mash horror-drama Penny Dreadful sounded like a mess. Take the classic monsters of literature and the silver screen and throw em' in a televisual blender with the ever-squinty Josh Hartnett as the lead Press puree and stand way way back because the cheese is gonna' fly. Seriously, anyone who saw the very sorry screen adaption of Alan Moore's phenomenal comic book "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman" knows what I'm blogging about. Fortunately, Showtime knows their stuff and having Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Logan running things gives us an atmospheric a...

Freida Pinto
Indian actress Freida Pinto takes center stage -- literally -- in the latest video from Bruno Mars.

"Gorilla" features Pinto as an exotic dancer named Isabella, who is also the love interest of the singer in the short film.

The two stars get hot and steamy in the back seat of a car; and the actress flaunts her sexy curves in some hot lingerie. She also shows off some pretty intense pole-dancing skills -- but since we only see her body during those parts it's a good bet producers used a body double. When she's not on the pole, it's all Freida though.

Two fellow dancers vow to ruin her bud...

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...
