Armie Hammer On Licking Julia Roberts' Face, Behaving In Hollywood And Riding His Vespa

March 29th, 2012 1:00pm EDT
Armie Hammer
Armie Hammer was the breakout star of The Social Network, although he might have had an unfair advantage since he played two characters. His memorable work as the Winklevoss twins bumped him into the covetable tier of young actors who can go for the juicy parts. He got to play J. Edgar’s closeted lover Clyde Tolson and now he’s playing the title role in The Lone Ranger. (Johnny Depp is his “sidekick” Tonto.)

This week he stars as Prince Charming in Mirror Mirror, a new take on the Snow White story. This prince is kind of a goofball, and when he falls under the evil queen (Julia Roberts)’ s...

March 28th, 2012 3:45pm EDT
Mirror Mirror
Julia Roberts stars as the evil queen in this week’s Snow White movie Mirror Mirror. The mother of three was happy to be involved in a family film, although she told the press she has no plans to show her children the movie because they are too young.

“I think they are considering the part that I play,” Roberts said.

Her twins would be eight and her son five, but they have strict rules for movies and television in the Roberts home anyway. “We have a pretty rigid viewing feeling in our house. We’re more book people in our house. I mean, we’ll find our time that’ll be happy and joyous for u...

Julia Roberts pulled a muscle in her thigh while filming new movie "Mirror Mirror" after struggling to move in one particularly heavy costume.

The actress stars as the Evil Queen in the fantasy comedy and was often weighed down by her elaborate regal dresses.

One bronze-colored outfit, which she wears while sitting on her throne in the film, weighed a hefty 60 pounds and Roberts admits she had to get ready for the shot in a specially-erected tent.

During an interview with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, she said, "I had a tent on the stage that I went in to dress because that dress doesn...

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a hot tourist spot in Los Angeles as well as a dream for many actors to be recognized on Hollywood Boulevard by getting their name on a star- or is it?

Julia Roberts & Her Kids Read Books Instead Of Watch Movies

March 24th, 2012 10:30am EDT
Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts has little time for movies when she's at home with her kids because they'd all rather read books than spend two hours in front of a screen.

The star values family time with her husband Danny Moder and their kids and hates the idea of just sitting and watching a film they might not all enjoy.

She tells WENN, "We're more book people. They (kids) have a lot of fairytale books and some of the old ones have such great illustrations and with proper parental editing when reading before bed, they're quite lovely.

"Those nice, cozy, very short hours before bed, we just really spend ...

The 1990 box office smash is one of the most successful rom-coms of all time, pulling in over $460 million at the box office, and Gere left fans stunned recently when he allegedly poured scorn on the movie, in which he played a successful businessman opposite Julia Roberts' hooker character, in a recent Australian interview.

According to Aussie magazine Woman's Day, Gere said of the film, "It's my least favorite thing. People ask me abo...

Rachel Weisz Cosmetics Ad Banned In Britain

Rachel Weisz
A cosmetics commercial starring Rachel Weisz has been banned in the U.K. after officials at a watchdog group ruled the L'Oreal ad misrepresented what the product could do.

Scottish politician Jo Swinson complained to the Advertising Standards Authority about the L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Repair ad, claiming it "misleadingly exaggerated" the performance of the product because Weisz's skin was digitally altered to make it look smoother, and officials have upheld the complaint, stating the commercial can no longer air in its current form.

Meg Ryan
Meg Ryan might not be the star she once was when she was breaking our hearts in classic romantic comedies like "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless In Seattle," but there's no doubt she deserves her place in Hollywood history.

Nowadays, she's more famous for her private life and her romances than she is for film roles, but she has already amassed some iconic characters including orgasm-faking Sally Albright ("When Harry Met Sally"), Annie Reed ("Sleepless in Seattle"), Alice Green ("When a Man Loves a Woman") and Kathleen Kelly ("You've Got Mail").

Julia Roberts Just Couldn't Be Mean, Says 'Snow White' Director

November 1st, 2011 12:30pm EDT
Julia Roberts Snow White
In one of the competing Snow White film projects, Julia Roberts plays the evil queen to Lily Collins’ Snow White. America’s Sweetheart will have to be the ultimate fairy tale villain, but director Tarsem Singh said it just didn’t come naturally to the Pretty Woman.

“No, actually she would play this person and completely come down,” Singh said. “She would be really mean to Lily and I remember every time I turned around, she said, ‘That’s like being nasty to Bambi. You just can’t do it.’ So people deal with it differently.”

Singh just finished working with Mickey Rourke on Immortals. When R...

How Ryan Gosling Resurrected The Movie Star

September 14th, 2011 11:00am EDT

Movie critics, driven to understandable cynicism by the onslaught of unnecessary remakes (there is no reason for another "Footloose") and re-imaginings of every superhero from the Green Lantern to a hammer-wielding Norse god, have declared the movie star extinct.  I think the stellar year actor Ryan Gosling, 30, is having is inspiring proof that the existence of the movie star in this entertainment climate is still possible. 

For this lover of pop culture, a movie star is more than someone who makes a lot of films and walks a lot of red carpets.  It’s Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” “Th...

The Social Network star plays Prince Andrew Alcott opposite Julia Roberts in the as-yet-untitled film, but he admits he clashed with production bosses on the movie set because he couldn't stand the thought of going bare, which was required for his character.

He tells Details magazine, "Julia (Roberts) had a line about how smooth my chest is, and it's not. So the producers were like, 'OK, just shave him.' And I was like, 'Whoa. I spent 25 years earning this ...
