Eric Roberts
Actor Eric Roberts' tax woes are mounting - he's been hit with a new bill after allegedly failing to hand over more than $85,000.

State officials in California filed a tax lien for $23,714 against Julia Roberts' brother last year, and he was slapped with another bill for $32,634 in March.

And now a third document has been filed against Roberts, according to The Detroit News.

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) bosses filed papers at the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds in June, suggesting the star owes an additional $85,890 in back taxes.

Snow White vs Snow White
Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? We'll find out in 2012, as two Snow White films will be headed to theaters in two very different styles.

Lily Collins will play Snow White in what is currently titled The Brothers Grimm: Snow White. She will be opposite Julia Roberts, who will play the Evil Queen. The movie is due out in March of 2012.

However, Collins will have company. For whatever reason (and despite a lack of Snow White since a cameo in 2007's Enchanted), there will be two feature films on the classic tale.

Kristen Stewart will star as a Snow White ready ...

Larry Crowne
By Joan Alperin Schwartz: Once upon a time, a Hollywood actor named Tom Hanks decided to write a film about a middle aged average guy who loses his job, goes to college, makes some new friends, joins a motor scooter gang, gets a makeover, and has his house foreclosed on...and...in case I forgot to mention... He meets an alcholic college Professor who looks very much like Julia Roberts. They of course fall in love and live happily ever after.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon,' 'Larry Crowne,' & More

6/27/2011 10:45am EDT
Transformers
Last week I saw the Cameron Diaz comedy “Bad Teacher,” which was just about as disappointing as “Green Lantern.” In many ways the film tries to mimic “Bad Santa” and go for outrageous laughs, but the writers force these ridiculous moments and don’t really give their protagonist any redeeming qualities in the end. For more of my thoughts, check out the full review.

Hitting the box office this week are the epic Michael Bay outing “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” the Tom Hanks romantic dramedy “Larry Crowne,” the Selena Gomez teenage vacation adventure “Monte Carlo,” the John C. Reilly ind...

Cameron Diaz is anything but a predictable actor. This Friday, “Bad Teacher” opens and will showcase Diaz’s R-rated comedy skills opposite Justin Timerlake and Jason Segel, an alumnus of the Judd Apatow school of raunchy humor. Directed by Jake Kasdan (“Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story”), Diaz stars as the world’s worst teacher who would rather get high in her car than teach her kids anything. While most moviegoers see her as just a pretty face who pops up in mediocre films, Diaz has had an incredibly unique and varied career in Hollywood over the last two decades.

She tells PopEater, "A lot of people think that and they talk about nepotism which I think is so ridiculous considering it's obviously not true, because I've auditioned for so many things and never gotten the part. Also it's like, you kno...
