Brad Pitt
The biggest and most memorable event of 1963 was the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, its 50th anniversary will be marked on November 22. The civil rights movement was in full swing as Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I have a dream" speech and the Vietnam conflict had begun.

Forgotten Friday Flick - 'The Underneath'

With the glorious "Haywire" hitting theaters today, it seemed only fitting to further shout the sweetness of Soderbergh...welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Yes, "sex, lies, and videotape" was game changing and "Traffic" was ever so dramatic, but there’s one film that seems to take the backburner on the Soderbergh stove, so we’re gonna turn up the heat! It’s his fourth and most savvy flick about a guy coming home to settle some old business. (And yes, sex and violence ensue!) We’re talking about the highly underrated 1995 little noir ditty..."The Underneath."

Review: Jonah Hill Deserves Better Than 'The Sitter'

December 10th, 2011 11:00am EST
The Sitter
Who would you rather watch in a movie about babysitting: a 1980s Elisabeth Shue or an overweight Jonah Hill? Let’s be honest, you’d probably pick Elisabeth Shue. And no, this argument is NOT based on looks. If you’ve seen his nuanced performances in “Cyrus” or “Moneyball,” then you’ll agree that Hill has outgrown crappy films like David Gordon Green’s “The Sitter,” regardless of former weight.

In an age of reboots and remakes, plenty of Hollywood scribes try to slyly spin an established idea or genre, by marketing it as new. However, rarely do they bring anything worthwhile ...

Elisabeth Shue's Unfortunately Short Tennis Outfit

Elisabeth Shue
We spotted Elisabeth Shue in action at the Chris Evert Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic, held at South Beach, Miami, over the weekend.

The sweaty star appeared to be having a great time, although we think her skirt may have been a little too short, revealing a little too much cellulite (see the final photo below).

Shue recently starred in the spoof film "Piranha 3D." She has several films in production, including "Janie Jones" about a young girl who has been abandoned by her former-groupie mother and informs a fading rock star that she is his daughter.

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Recap: 'Officer Krupke'

November 9th, 2009 8:18am EST
Curb Your Enthusiasm
"There are only two ways to injure your neck: A car accident and cunnilingus." ~ Larry David

If the above sentence were the only words spoken during "Office Krupke", the eighth episode of this season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm", the would have been enough to make it a classic. Fortunately, Larry David saw it fit enough to build an entire half-an-hour around those fourteen words.

Okay, so it wasn't all built around that. The action of the episode was mostly built around two pairs of pants: the pair Larry kind of stole from a Santa Monica Banana Republic and the pair of panties Susie fo...

Interview: Comedian Steve Coogan Rocks Sexy Jesus Character in 'Hamlet 2'

August 27th, 2008 3:36pm EDT
Hamlet 2
(HollywoodChicago.com) – Steve Coogan is a British comedy icon. Forging a career from creating an array of characters, though, he’s not as well known in America (except to BBC cultists).

He brings this talent for characterization to the lead role of an American high school drama teacher in the new film “Hamlet 2”. Coogan adds some peculiar quirks to the depiction of the clueless soul who seemingly will do anything to project his dramatic “vision”.

There's nothing better - or more intimidating - than someone with a combination of good looks, lots of money, unbridled talent and intelligence. It's easier to make fun of people like Paris Hilton or Britney Spears, who might possess a few of the aforementioned assets but who are one short of a perfect combination.

But some celebs have it all. Beauty, money, power and an impressive academic pedigree. So here is Starpulse's list of the most erudite celebrities, and some might come as quite a surprise. (Conan O'Brien went to Harvard?)

'Melrose Place': Where Are They Now?

February 25th, 2008 12:00pm EST
Melrose Place
Sixteen years ago we were first introduced to Melrose Place, an innocent (at least it started that way) spin-off of Beverly Hills, 90210 that took place in a West Hollywood apartment complex. I know as an 8-year-old boy I was excited to see what the lives of 20-something people would be like. I assumed lots of swimming and talking about art. I was wrong, so very very wrong. Seeing as the show ended its run almost 10 years ago we should look back and see just where those over-sexed and off-kilter roommates have gone. Now I can relate to what the show was about!

Elisabeth Shue's foul-mouthed rant in cult movie Adventures In Babysitting came back to haunt her when her three-year-old son adopted the line as his personal mantra. The star's dad warned Shue about the impact the line "Don't f- with the babysitter" would have on young kids, but she chose to ignore him.

She recalls, "My father wrote me a three-page letter telling me why I could not say that word because then kids would think it was OK to say it. I said, 'Oh God dad, that's never going to happen.'"
