Head And Shoulders Above The Rest: The 15 Tallest Actresses In Hollywood

April 30th, 2014 7:00pm EDT
Gwendoline Christie
We recently profiled the tallest actors in show business, so naturally we wanted to also honor the women who stand out - for both their height and acting ability.

Gwendoline Christie, 6'3". Christie plays the towering Brienne in Game of Thrones and told Stylist, "As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity and what it is to be a woman."

Brigitte Nielsen, 6'1". At the height of her fame in the 80s, the danish actress was unfairly branded an "amazon" by several newspapers when she was marrie...

January 30th, 2012 9:10am EST
2012 SAG Fashion
Many stars attended last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, and black was one of the most popular colors on the red carpet.

Angelina Jolie showed off her particularly thin figure in a draped black gown. Other stars in black included Stacy Keibler, Jayma Mays, Amber Heard, Ashlee Simpson, Emma Stone, Glenn Close, Heather Morris, Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy.

But there were some spots of color in the bunch, including Sofia Vergara's bright pink gown and Emily Blunt's seafoam green dress.

2012 Golden Globes Fashion: Who Rocked The Red Carpet & Who Didn't?

January 16th, 2012 9:30am EST
2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

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

2012 Critics Choice Awards Fashion: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

January 13th, 2012 9:14am EST
Critics Choice Awards
Unlike the upbeat and youthful People's Choice Awards, the stars at Thursday night's Critics Choice Awards showed up in more subdued attire, taking their jobs much more seriously (and not in a good way).

Where was the pop of color? Where were the glittering gowns? We have one word for this bunch of celebs: boring.

Emma Stone continued her green trend from the People's Choice Awards in an emerald dress last night. But what's with the cutouts, strings and belt? Thumbs down.

We salute Elle Fanning for dressing her age, but we dislike the yellow and turqoise gown.

Check out all the good, ba...

'Up All Night' Recap: 'Mr. Bob's Toddler Kaleidoscope'

October 13th, 2011 9:14am EDT
Christina Applegate and Will Arnett in
Even though the latest episode of "Up All Night" was filmed well before last week's recap, it somehow managed to address many of the issues I felt were keeping the show from being as good as it could be. As a result, this week's episode is the strongest so far.

Last week, I suggested that "Up All Night" needed to focus more on Chris and Reagan's relationships—with each other and with their baby—and dial back Ava's over-the-top storylines so that they mesh better with the rest of the show. "Mr. Bob's Toddler Kaleidoscope" does just that by giving Reagan and Ava storylines that mirror eac...

Review: 'Two Jews On Film' Agree On 'Barry Munday' (Video)

September 30th, 2010 9:59am EDT
Barry Munday
"Barry Munday" a quirky, very funny, and heartwarming film stars the wonderful Patrick Wilson, (playing against type), Judy Greer, Chloe Sevigny, Colin Hanks, Cybill Shepherd, Jean Smart, Emily Proctor, Missi Pyle and Malcolm McDowell. Barry Munday is a wanna be suburban Don Juan and your typical man-child. He gets viciously attacked in a movie theater one day and wakes up in a hospital bed. He quickly discovers that he's lost something very precious...his testicles. On top of that he finds out he's impregnated a woman (the marvelous Judy Greer) that he can't remember having sex with.

DVD Purgatory: 'Spring Breakdown'

September 18th, 2009 8:50am EDT
Spring Breakdown
In between box-office heaven and unreleased hell lies DVD Purgatory, where movies with popular actors, big budgets and bigger problems rest in eternal damnation on the shelves of your local Blockbuster. Each month we'll take a look at one of these lost souls and figure out what went wrong. This month's unfortunate victim is "Spring Breakdown".

Female-centric comedies are rarely big winners, but the ones that break through - think "Legally Blonde" or "House Bunny" - usually hit it big due to the dearth of funny films targeted toward women.

So, it made sense for Warner Bros. to give th...

Tis The Season For... Christmas Movies?

December 24th, 2008 6:20pm EST
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Aah, the holiday season. Strange how we cherish a time of year when the malls are over packed... it's cold outside... it's impossible to find a parking space... the line at the post office is out the door even at their slowest time of day... it's impossible to find the season's latest hot toy... people who have no clue what 'hustle & bustle' means and stroll slowly through busy stores so you're stuck strolling right behind them when all you want to do is get in and out. Christmas shopping is a mission, not a casual day at the mall to comparison shop. That's what the internet and the weekly ...
