10 Sexy Actresses Over Age 60 -  Have They Had Plastic Surgery?
Gap-toothed model/actress Lauren Hutton (born Nov. 17, 1943) has appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine 25 times and is a former Playboy bunny. She's starred in films such as "American Gigolo" and "Once Bitten" as well as the 80's primetime soap "Falcon Crest."

She once told a reporter why she wouldn't get plastic surgery: "Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be. I don't think I will ever cut my face, because once I cut it, I'll never know where I've been."

Way to go, Lauren!

Ellen DeGeneres Twitter
Ellen DeGeneres got her wish when she set out to create the most retweeted photo at the Oscars, but the picture is a far cry from what she intended.

Ellen told E! after the show that the joke was for Ellen to take a picture with Meryl Streep, then crop Streep out of the photo. "That was going to be the joke. But it doesn't matter. It was just great," she said to Bradley Cooper, who stopped by during her interview.

Instead, Ellen got a great shot of several huge Hollywood stars and crashed Twitter as users raced to help Ellen achieve her goal. As of this writing, the picture has over 2.8 m...

Sandra Bullock
An anonymous Oscar voter has had his or her ballot revealed, and they had some unflattering things to say about several nominees.

The ballot is one of a handful The Hollywood Reporter will be revealing leading up to the Oscars on Sunday night. This particular ballot is from "a longtime member of the Academy's 377-member directors branch."

The director picks American Hustle as Best Picture and says making 12 Years a Slave would require courage, "if you made it in Mississippi in 1930." The director then snubs Gravity's Alfonso Cuaron for Best Director, writing, "I have seen things at the pl...

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

As awards season heats up, so do the chances of people failing spectacularly on the red carpet. We Love Meryl Streep, but we hate the black, shapeless gown she wore to the SAG Awards.

Rachel Wilde must have known that having a waist-high split in the middle of her gown would lead to shots like this. Even if that was fixed, we're not fans of the color or the too-big sleeves.

It seems Juliette Lewis is rubbing it in that it'...

Julia Roberts Felt 'Terrible' Knocking Meryl Streep

August: Osage County
Julia Roberts felt "terrible" knocking over Meryl Streep in the film 'August: Osage County'.
 
The 46-year-old actress, who plays Streep's on-screen daughter Barbara in the gritty comedy drama, was forced to push the 64-year-old star- who plays Violet Weston - to the ground in one scene, which she admits left her feeling guilt-ridden.

She said: "It was horrible, I felt terrible every time. I was so worried about hurting her and she was such an incredible trouper. We did the scene for like an entire day.

"We're both bruised up and battered and I was like, 'Look at this! Oh my God, I'm jus...

SAG Award Nominees Named: '12 Years A Slave' Tops Nods (Full List)

December 11th, 2013 11:14am EST
12 Years a Slave
Some people were surprised by The Butler’s presence here, but I don’t see any surprises from them. Movies like Gravity and Her (which are frontrunners for a Best Picture nomination) aren’t large cast films, and wouldn’t get the Ensemble nomination over The Butler. The big surprise is Dallas Buyers Club, which is a relatively small cast, and did manage an Ensemble nomination. That could go a long way in getting DBC to a Best Picture nomination. Also, Daniel Bruhl is back in the race with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rush.

Kudos to the SAG members for nominating James Gandolfini for E...

Justin Bieber and Meryl Streep have added their names to an online petition aimed at landing movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's new movie "Bully" a lower age rating.

Censors at The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) slapped the documentary with a restrictive R rating, which bans young children from seeing it without their parents, despite Weinstein arguing that "Bully" was essential viewing for kids in the fight to combat bullying among youths.

The decision angered many film fans and social campaigners, and Katy Butler, a high school student from Michigan, subsequently started a pet...

The 84th Annual Academy Awards was the top show of the week with 39.3 million viewers. The ceremony, which sported Billy Crystal as host and a surprise win for Meryl Streep, was up a tick from last year’s numbers. However, the show couldn’t top the unexpectedly stellar performance of the Grammys a couple of weeks ago. That show likely benefitted from Whitney Houston’s sudden passing and Adele’s surging popularity.

The Academy Awards propelled ABC to a rare weekly ratings win, with an average of 10.68 million. That was enough to top CBS (10.06 million), FOX ...
