Michelle Trachtenberg Wants Meet Lee Harvey Oswald's Wife

11/5/2013 3:19pm EST
Killing Kennedy
Michelle Trachtenberg is eager to meet the widow of the man accused of assassinating President John F. Kennedy after portraying her in new TV movie Killing Kennedy.

Marina Oswald has always made it clear she does not want to be associated with what her husband allegedly did way back in 1963, and so the actress refused to try and track her down as she researched her latest role.

However, the 28 year-old actress admits she would love to meet up with the Russian, who is now in her 70s.

She tells Access Hollywood Live, "Of the main players in the movie, she's the only one who's still aliv...

Israeli Supermodel Bar Refaeli wore black leather pants and a sleeveless jeweled blouse, while George Clooney's main squeeze Stacy Keibler stood out in a bright pink gown.

Anne Hathaway
Celebrities came out in full force for "The Dark Knight Rises" world premiere in New York City on Monday night. Anne Hathaway, who plays catwoman, looked glamorous in a long white, low-cut gown with silver sequins on the bodice.

Marion Cotillard also wore white, and resembled a ballerina in a flouncy frock paired with strappy high heels.

Christian Bale donned a black and white suit and was accompanied by his wife Sibi Blazic.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt opted for a gray suit with a skinny red tie - a stark contrast to Gary Oldman who wore a brown suit with a blue button-down shirt. The always c...

90s Nickelodeon Stars: Then And Now

8/1/2011 3:00pm EDT
Kenan And Kel
TeenNick is re-airing all of the favorite shows from the 90s in a programming block entitled "The 90s Are All That," so we figured we would look back on a trio of stars to see how much they have changed!

Kenan Thompson: Kenan was relatively unknown to older audiences tuning into Saturday Night Live, but those who watched him perform for years on Nick knew that he was going to shine. He's a bit different than the kid starring on Kenan and Kel, All That, and Good Burger.

Amanda Bynes: How long has Amanda Bynes been on television? All That was making fun of Ross Perot when she was on the c...

Pete Wentz And Michelle Trachtenberg A Couple -- Again?

7/6/2011 2:00pm EDT
Pete Wentz
It appears that both Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson have found new romances after their marriage fell apart. We told you recently that Ashlee was dating Boardwalk Empire star Vincent Piazza - and now it appears Pete Wentz could be going out with Michelle Trachtenberg.

Pete and Michelle dated previously, before Pete's marriage. People reports the duo was out and about in Los Angeles grabbing some coffee. Is she a shoulder to lean on after his hardship, or are sparks flying between them once more?

Either way, the future looks bright for everyone involved. Pete and Ashlee, despite their dif...

Aubrey ODay
You'd think the pressure would be on, considering it's fashion week. But not everyone was clued in. Check out the latest fashion fails!

What's black and white, shaped like a Christmas tree, and has no business being on someone's body? Apparently it's how Aubrey O'Day gussies up for fashion week.

Michelle Trachtenberg looks like she spilled wine and lunch all over herself.

And then there's "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld, who wore a black and white swan disaster.

Nicholas Brendon: 'Buffy Remake Is A Mistake'

12/16/2010 9:44am EST
Nicholas Brendon
Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon has become the latest former cast member to criticize plans for a big screen reboot of the hit TV show, branding it "a mistake".

The long-running series, which began as a 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson, is being re-imagined for a movie adaptation, with a new actress playing the cheerleader-turned-vampire hunter portrayed by Sarah Michelle Gellar on TV.

However Brendon, who played Xander Harris on the show, is worried the film will not find the same fan base as the TV phenomenon gained.

He tells E! News, "I think it's a mistake. They ha...

Michelle Trachtenberg Dating Knicks Star?

Michelle Trachtenberg
Gossip Girl actress Michelle Trachtenberg has sparked rumors of a new romance with New York Knicks basketball star Danilo Gallinari.

The 25 year old, who was previously linked to bad boy rocker John Mayer, has been spotted out in the Big Apple with 22-year-old Gallinari in recent weeks, and even cheered on the sportsman at a recent Knicks game.

However, an insider insists the pair is taking the relationship one step at a time.

The source tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "They are seeing each other, but it is very early days. Michelle seems pretty excited about Danilo ...

Michelle Trachtenberg
Gossip Girl actress Michelle Trachtenberg is returning to crime fighting for her latest acting role in her own TV series.

The 25 year old played an expert spy and criminal investigator in 1996 kids movie Harriet the Spy.

And now she's signed a deal with executives at the CW network to develop, produce and star in an as-yet-untitled series, about a young criminology student "with a gift for profiling and a dark past," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Trachtenberg will be working with familiar faces on her new set - Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are also na...

Jennifer Aniston And John Mayer Back Together?!

8/24/2010 2:30pm EDT
Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer
Earlier today a spokesperson for Michelle Trachtenberg dismissed rumors the actress was dating John Mayer - and now we already have another rumored girl for the Half of My Heart singer: Jennifer Aniston!

While Mayer famously said some interesting things about his other ex Jessica Simpson in Playboy, he gushed over his relationship with Aniston: "That woman would never use heartbreak warfare... That woman was the most communicative, sweetest, kindest person." He also told Rolling Stone: "I've never really gotten over it. It was one of the worst times of my life."

Star is now reporting tha...

Michelle Trachtenberg & John Mayer Aren't Dating

8/24/2010 9:21am EDT
Michelle Trachtenberg
A spokesperson for actress Michelle Trachtenberg has dismissed reports the actress is dating notorious Hollywood playboy John Mayer.

Recent reports suggested the actress was "smitten" with the singer/songwriter, who has dated a string of top beauties including Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson.

But the actress' rep insists rumors her client was spotted cozying up to Mayer during a recent night out at Los Angeles hotspot Soho House have been blown out of proportion.

The spokesperson insists the pair chatted for a mere five minutes, and the relationship is purely platonic.

The rep tell...

Chums Emmy Rossum & Michelle Trachtenberg Have A Girls Day Out

6/18/2010 8:05pm EDT
Emmy Rossum
Emmy Rossum and Michelle Trachtenberg headed out to get their nails done at a Beverly Hills nail spa earlier this week. The friends were spotted with an unknown friend, wearing matching trendy Girl Two Doors Down flip flops.

Michelle doesn't look too busy, even though she's unemployed. NBC canceled her drama "Mercy" after just one season. She starred as a nurse in the hospital series. She still does guest appearances on "Gossip Girl."

Earlier this year Emmy recently tweeted about her disgust with Heidi Montag, who had 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day. Emmy tweeted, "It upsets me...

NBC Cancels 'Mercy'

5/17/2010 8:41am EDT
Michelle Trachtenberg and James Van Der Beek are the latest TV stars looking for work - their medical drama "Mercy" has been canceled after its first season.

Trachtenberg stars as a nurse in the hospital series, featuring Van Der Beek in a recurring role as a womanizing doctor.

But chiefs at NBC have declined to commission a second series of the show, which launched last September.

The news comes after the recent cancellation of a number of high-profile TV shows, including Hayden Panettiere and Ali Larter's hit NBC series "Heroes" and long-running cop drama "Law & Order."

And network ex...

Amanda Seyfried: Another Actress Who Would Make The Perfect Vampire

4/21/2010 6:04pm EDT
Amanda Seyfried
Last week we pointed out that pale Michelle Trachtenberg would be perfect to star in "True Blood" or "The Vampire Diaries." We think Amanda Seyfried would be too!

She showed up to the "Mother and Child" Los Angeles premiere yesterday looking like she hasn't been out in the sun in a long time. We're all for keeping our skin healthy, but it wouldn't hurt to get a little vitamin D!

In addition, Amanda wore her Bodyamr dress backwards, causing a bit of an uproar in the fashion community.

The actress recently admitted she has a crude slang term for female genitalia (minge) tattooed on her le...

Pale Michelle Trachtenberg Would Make The Perfect Vampire

4/16/2010 11:00am EDT
Michelle Trachtenberg
Former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star Michelle Trachtenberg showed up at last night's American Museum of Natural History Museum Dance looking quite pale and pasty.

The actress currently stars in NBC's "Mercy" and recently appeared on "Gossip Girl," but we think she would be well suited for "True Blood" or "The Vampire Diaries" due to her very pale complexion. What do you think?

Michelle still has nightmares about her school years because bullies made her life a misery. She told Complex magazine, , "When I was in elementary school, this one girl threw me down a flight of stairs, fract...

Visit The Set Of NBC's New Hospital Drama 'Mercy' (Video)

1/20/2010 12:09pm EST
Eric Stromsvold
We recently visited the set of NBC's hospital drama, Mercy, for a tour of the set and to spend some time with the stellar cast; Taylor Schilling (Nurse Veronica Callahan), Michelle Trachtenberg (Nurse Chloe Payne), Jaime Lee Kirchner (Sonia Jimenez), James Tupper (Dr. Chris Sands), Guillermo Diaz (Nurse Angel Lopez), Diego Klattenhoff (Mike Callahan), James LeGros (Dr. Dan Harris) and new cast member James Van Der Beek (Dr. Liam West).

In between filming takes James Tupper gave us a personal tour of the Mercy set and in the process discovered that he is not only a practical joker but he ...

Macy's 2009 Thanksgiving Day Parade: Meh

11/28/2009 8:51am EST
So, in the spirit of Turkey Day and all that is holy in the holiday season traditions, I got up too early to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade along with an equally weary Liz Lewis. This year was pretty run of the mill.

Like all years past, NBC rolled in with semi truck filled with shameless plugs, an overload of NBC promotions, and puns corny enough to even make younger kids grimace. The route changed, to the chagrin of all those with pricey Broadway real estate who look forward to this fall classic, and the cast of Glee was glaringly absent. With NBC bringing out some real...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: It's A Boy, A Wedding & Sonic Youth

10/13/2009 8:10am EDT
Gossip Girl
While wedding season may be behind us, Gossip Girl tried to bring some ceremonial bliss to the Upper East Side. But, first things first, there was some relationship drama that needed to be sorted out before anyone could have a 'happily ever after.'

Dan (Penn Badgley) was left all by his lonesome while new movie-star girlfriend Olivia (Hilary Duff) was off on an Asian press/movie tour. While Olivia had left, Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) had come back to play, or pounce as the situation might more appropriately be described.

Georgina had gone to Boston to have Scott (Chris Riggi) c...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'The Lost Boy'

9/29/2009 9:15am EDT
Gossip Girl
This week Gossip Girl proved the sad fact that even when you think people have changed, they probably haven't. Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) was still out to destroy Blair (Leighton Meester). Her first step was destroying Blair's gag reflexes by sucking face with Dan (Penn Badgley) in their dorm room. Even though Blair left the room, Serena (Blake Lively) happened to catch Dan's walk of shame. Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) and Serena both expressed concern about Dan's "dating" Georgina.

Vanessa had bigger problems, though. Scott (Chris Riggi) was acting weirder than his usual creepy self. H...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'The Freshman'

9/22/2009 8:48am EDT
Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl went back to school this week, but they're not at Constance anymore…despite what Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) may think. Blair's main goal was to take over NYU the same way she did Constance. But, taking over NYU students' brains isn't as easy as dictating where they sit on the steps of the Met. First off, Blair began fighting an uphill battle as soon as Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) revealed herself as her roommate. At the end of last season, Georgina connived her way with the admission lady to become Blair's roommate, but played the innocent victim in front of fe...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: 'The Wrath of Con'

5/5/2009 10:06am EDT
Gossip Girl
This week, the Gossip Girl gang united their powers for good, instead of evil…sort of. After Gabriel (Armie Hammer) supposedly took everyone's money, Serena (Blake Lively) enlisted the help of her friends to get it back. Blair (Leighton Meester) used Serena's crisis to avoid talking to Nate (Chace Crawford) about living together next year. And Chuck used this to his advantage to bring Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) back to the Upper East Side.

Serena originally was going to tell her mother (Kelly Rutherford) about the stolen money, but Lily prevented her from doing so by...

Blair (Leighton Meester) may be back with Nate (Chace Crawford), but you can't take the conniving Gossip Girl out of her. After learning of Serena's (Blake Lively) new boyfriend's disappearing acts and lack of commitment, Blair sets out to spy on him. Gabriel (Armie Hammer) is caught in cohorts with supposed ex-girlfriend Poppy Lifton (Tamara Feldman).

Blair relays the news to Serena, but she refuses to believe it. Gabriel tells her a story about the new company he's creating and how Poppy holds the key to all his contacts. Since she's running the show, he can't tell her that he's seei...

Hilary Duff's Wrestling Championship Belt - Hot Or Not?

12/5/2008 12:42pm EST
Hilary Duff Michelle Trachtenberg belts
Hilary Duff wore a somewhat odd outfit last night to the opening of the SLS Hotel in LA. The "belt" she's wearing looks like a wrestling championship belt spray painted black. Pairing that with a skirt that looks like it was made from drapery and matching tank top and leggings is not flattering on the 21-year-old.

Duff wasn't the only one with oversize waist accessories at the event. Michelle Trachtenberg's elegant black dress featured a huge crystal-encrusted belt.

What do you think of their outfits? Leave a comment below!
