Hayden Panettiere's Tight Little Black & White Dress Hugs Her In All The Right Places

May 19th, 2010 3:45pm EDT
Hayden Panettiere
Hayden Panettiere rocked the red carpet yesterday with her new short hairdo and a short dress at the 2010 World Music Awards in Monte Carlo. The black and white frock with an amoeba-like pattern hugged the actress in all the right places.

Hayden looked happy despite news this week that her NBC series "Heroes" was canceled. The series won over audiences and garnered critical acclaim upon its launch in 2006, but it fell in the ratings over its four seasons. However, "Heroes" bosses are allegedly in negotiations to end the show with a short mini-series or movie.

"Heroes" isn't the only serie...

Michelle Rodriguez Is Scorching Hot In Her Ultra Short, See-Through Black Dress

May 19th, 2010 2:45pm EDT
Michelle Rodriguez
Michelle Rodriguez must have had to keep her legs close together when she wore this dress to the 2010 World Music Awards in Monte Carlo yesterday. It's so short, it must have been hard for her to keep the world from seeing what's underneath. In fact, it's also see-through, so the world DID get to see what's underneath!

The "Avatar" actress stars in the upcoming film "Machete," which is based on the spoof trailer featured in Robert Rodriguez & Quentin Tarantino's "Grindhouse."

Danny Trejo stars as a knife-wielding vigilante who nearly dies in an assassination conspiracy, only to return lat...

Jennifer Lopez cemented her music comeback on Tuesday as she accepted top honors at the World Music Awards.

The singer opened the show by performing a medley of her hits and was later named the Legend for Outstanding Contribution to the Arts at the star-studded event in Monaco. Lopez, who stepped away from the spotlight in 2008 after the birth of her twins, told the crowd the award was meaningful but is "just the beginning."

Lady Gaga was the night's biggest winner with a haul of five awards, but was not present to pick them up.

Chinese Writer Not Giving Up On 'Avatar' Lawsuit

March 5th, 2010 8:00am EST
A Chinese writer is persevering with his threats to sue James Cameron over allegations the director based his blockbuster "Avatar" on a 1997 novel, even though officials at two courts have refused to submit the breach of copyright case.

Zhou Shaomou claims the plotlines in the sci-fi epic were lifted from his book, "Tale Of The Blue Crows", which was published online.

He tells China Daily, "Eighty per cent of the plot and the key elements of 'Avatar' are similar to my 1997 science fiction novel 'Tale Of The Blue Crows.'"

Shaomou has failed so far in his attempts to file a lawsuit in Chin...

Michelle Rodriguez Is All Class In A Black Strapless Gown - Hot Or Not?

February 18th, 2010 7:15pm EST
Michelle Rodriguez
"Avatar" star Michelle Rodriguez was a vision in black at the "Festival di Sanremo" Italian song contest in San Remo, Italy, Wednesday. She looked hot in the strapless gown (which showed quite a big of leg). She also added her own flair with a motorcycle jacket - do you think that ruined the look? See more photos after the jump!

"Avatar" has already grossed over $2 billion worldwide, sinking "Titanic's" global box office record of $1.84 billion. Hopefully Michelle got a good paycheck for that film.

Meanwhile, Michelle has dodged rumors for years about her sexuality. She said, "If I wa...

The actress is starring in James Cameron's widely popular Avatar as a chopper pilot. We know most fans are fond of her luscious co-star Zoe Saldana, but what about Michelle Rodriguez? Is she hot or not? Click through our photo slideshow, and let us know!

Michelle has vowed never to discuss speculation over her sexuality. The star has long fought off rumors she is a lesbian. She says, "If I wanted to tell people what I do with my vagina, I'd have made a sex video a long time ago."

Meanwhile, the actress admires "sexual" Angelina Jolie. She says, "I like Angelina Jolie because of her ab...

Preview: 'Avatar' Should Not Let Fans Down

December 17th, 2009 1:45pm EST
Over the years James Cameron has developed a serious reputation for himself, and whether or not this will help or hurt his latest project "Avatar" remains to be seen. After his hit films like "Terminator," "Terminator 2," "Aliens," and "Titanic," Cameron has made a name for epic adventures, revolutionary technology, and brilliant vision. Ever since "Avatar" was announced it has garnered a great deal of interest and speculation, mostly because it is the first project of Cameron's since his highest grossing film (of all time) "Titanic," and because he swore it would bring special effects to a...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Avatar,' 'Nine' & More

December 14th, 2009 9:25am EST
Last week I had a chance to catch "Invictus," director Clint Eastwood's latest effort. A lot of early buzz suggests the film should be a Best Picture contender at the Academy Awards, but I personally wasn't too impressed.

While "Invictus" isn't a terrible movie, it certainly isn't Eastwood's best. In many ways it just feels forced because the film tries too hard to send an inspirational message.

Eastwood explores a number of subplots that he never fully fleshes out, and he fails to establish the proper dramatic tension that makes a sports picture so powerful. As an audience member ...

'Fast & Furious': A Love Story

April 17th, 2009 9:31am EDT
Fast & Furious
When I first heard that yet another installment of the "Fast & Furious" was coming out, I stifled a yawn and made a mental note to catch it on TBS 6 months later. But after watching the trailer and seeing a good amount of car chases, explosions, and Vin Diesel looking delicious as ever in that wife beater of his…I was convinced to see it in theaters. What I saw wasn't your run-of-the-mill action flick, but dare I say it, something deeper? The storyline is well crafted, with moments of laughable dialogue, but that's to be expected. I never saw a love and revenge plot coming out of a test...

'Lost' Recap: Smoke Monster Appears, Locke Turns The Wheel & More

February 12th, 2009 10:41am EST
Ever since the "Lost" writers declared an exact ending date the show has improved drastically. There are no pointless or filler moments in the show anymore; every scene is vital, every action spurs the story on, and every choice has consequences. There are a few shows out there that would really benefit from this same kind of focus (looking at you, "Heroes"). A cast member does die in this episode, although everyone kind of saw it coming, and the Oceanic 6 are that much closer to getting to the blasted Island already. Plus, the smoke monster is back!

The Oceanic 6 are coming tog...

'Lost' Recap: Jughead

January 29th, 2009 3:37pm EST
The Oceanic 6 are nowhere to be found for the newest episode of Lost titled 'Jughead.' Strangely, it did not suffer in the least without Jack, Kate, Sun, Sayid, Hurley and Ben. Instead it focused entirely upon two intertwining stories, that of the Losties left on the Island and Desmond in the present day. It starts out with a scene that probably made most fans sigh with happiness: the birth of Desmond and Penny's son. That estranged and doomed couple was always the most believable and genuine on the show, so it is wonderful to see them married and settled in a happy family now. Then again, ...

'Lost' Recap: The Season 5 Premiere

January 22nd, 2009 3:57pm EST
In order to properly recap the two hour season premiere of "Lost," it is going to have to be mapped out in a linear fashion. Before I start, understand that during these two hours, all of the stories are constantly moving intertwined with one another, so that one second you may be in the present time with Hurley and Sayid, and then immediately flash to three years earlier (or sixty years earlier) with the Islanders. The fact that all of this is done in a coherent way should earn the entire "Lost" staff an honorary Emmy immediately. Technically these two episodes, "The Lie" and "Because You ...

Fashion Blunder Of The Week

Oh, Michelle. What were you thinking? On August 29, Michelle Rodriguez attended Las Vegas' Bellagio resort and casino Yellowtail Sushi restaurant and bar grand opening celebration.

She appeared in a sloppy ensemble that included an enormous bag around her waist. Were fanny bags ever in style? We don't think so.

'The Cho Show: The Cho-Universe Pageant': Episode 2 Recap

August 29th, 2008 10:40am EDT
Cho Show
If the number of comments on my last "Cho Show" recap are any indication (one at last count) then nobody on planet Starpulse is watching...I can safely say after tonight's episode: That's a shame.

Don't get me wrong: though improved, the show has a way to go in the biting humor department, and it remains too stagey for my taste (but what else to expect from what Margaret is calling "semi-scripted reality"). Still, the latest episode showcased a trifle more heart and the Cho bravura that fans have come to know and love.

The show opened with Margaret and feisty four-foot-somethin...

'The Cho Show': Korean of the Year: Episode 1 Recap

August 22nd, 2008 11:21am EDT
Margaret Cho
The late 11pm start time for the first episode of "The Cho Show" on VH1 seemed to me to be an exciting harbinger of edgy, wickedly profane comedy to come. It all started promisingly enough: Comedienne extraordinaire Margaret Cho opened her new reality series with hard rock, a funny bit about Jack Black and his only towel (you had to be there) and a flash of her va-jay-jay - suitable and desired for a late-night crowd. Then something truly unexpected happened: Margaret became mundane.

The usually outrageous Cho is not only restrained in this series opener, she's downright neutered. Her ...

'Lost' Recap: The Season Promises To Be Faster Paced, Brutal & Desperate

February 1st, 2008 11:37am EST
The most innovative show on television is back with a vengeance, and it is promising to be better than ever. "Lost" is one of the few that always delivers, and although what it delivers is not necessarily answers or explanations, it does keep us hooked, fascinated, and emotionally invested.

This highly anticipated season four premiere was named "The Beginning of the End" in reference to Ben's (Michael Emerson) comment to Jack (Matthew Fox) that it would be the beginning of the end if they called the believed rescuers. Never had the dangerous, manipulative leader of the Others seemed s...

Michelle Rodriguez Whines About Restrictions After Drunk Driving Convictions

Michelle Rodriguez holds everyone but herself responsible for her drunk driving convictions. The Lost star, who was convicted of the offense in 2004 and 2005, expressed her disgust at driving regulations and the restrictions she faces on her personal blog.

She wrote: "At 15 miles an hour, never killed a pot head. We get stopped driving 15 miles an hour down a 35-40 mph road. I cry, this sucks ass. I hire some lawyer from Hawaii, lose my 28 acres of land and my home in Jersey paying him off, just so I can get the same treatment I would have gotten from a public defender."
