Mila Kunis is adamant an alleged hacker accused of illegally accessing her email account could not have stolen a saucy snap as the actress doesn't "send naked photos" of herself.

No, making coffee and taking out the trash don't necessarily qualify as "educational" activities.

Apparently unpaid interns are no longer willing to do the often agonizing tasks that unpaid interns are usually called upon to do, as two of them are suing the producers of "Black Swan" for their tedious intern experience whilst working on the Oscar-winning hit, according to The New York Times.

The lawsuit filed by Alex Footman and Eric Glatt claims that Fox Searchlight Pictures had the interns do menial work that should have been done by paid employees and did not provide them with the type...

The group of miners, whose dramatic 24-hour rescue was televised across the world, became sensations when they managed to escape relatively unscathed after being trapped underground for 69 days following the collapse of a tunnel.

Hollywood bigshots, including actor Brad Pitt, were eager to get their hands on the film rights, but it is award-winning filmmaker Medavoy who will bring the astonishing tale to the big screen.

BlackSwan-091310-0004.jpg
Sarah Lane became a name that just about everyone who follows movies and pop culture became familiar with right around the time Natalie Portman won her Oscar for Best Actress for playing the role of Nina Sayers in Black Swan.

Miss Lane spoke out to share with the world that actually she did most of the dancing in the film, not Natalie Portman. Then a big backlash erupted with different parties taking sides and the director Darren Aronofosky and the choreographer (and Natalie Portman's fiance) Benjamin Millepied standing strong behind Natalie claiming she did 85% of the dancing.

Oscar's Big Change And Four Small Changes That Come Along With It

On Tuesday, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, in a rare moment of clarity, re-opened the possibility of a limited field of nominees for Best Picture each year. In other words, after two years of nonsense, a Best Picture nomination actually matters again.

The new system is very simple. It works similarly to the way Baseball Players are elected to the Hall of Fame. Academy member vote in much the same way as they have the last two years – ranking their nominees from 1 through 10.

Except now, instead of a convoluted vote counting process that leads to scavenging for a tenth no...

Smarter Than The Average Movie Star Natalie Portman Turns 30

June 9th, 2011 10:00am EDT
Natalie Portman
“I'd rather be smart than a movie star,” Natalie Portman once said. ...Turns out she’s both.

The young actress has always been a fascinating contradiction. Youthful in appearance, yet always so mature in her choices, her acting and her lifestyle. A child star who was never childish, (even at just 12 years of age in Leon), she has a natural maturity far beyond any of her peers. Which is why she’s lasted where others have crashed and burned.

Discovered by an agent in a pizza parlour at the age of 11, Portman was being groomed for a modelling career before deciding she’d rather pursue acting...

Dancer Feels 'Degraded' Over 'Black Swan' Controversy

April 18th, 2011 8:46am EDT
Black Swan
Ballet star Sarah Lane's allegations that she, not Natalie Portman, was the star of hit film "Black Swan" appear to ring true if new face replacement footage on the DVD is to be believed.

The American Ballet Theater star was hired to perform the most complex Swan Lake dance scenes in the film, but whereas Portman has claimed she performed 75 percent of what is seen in the movie, Lane insists all the dancing in the film was her, and the actress only featured in five per cent of the ballet sequences..

The dancer caused controversy when she first came forward with her claims and she's not ba...

Don’t laugh or call me a girl (HA) but, if you’re anything like me, you might enjoy watching movies with lots of dancing! While watching some of these dance movies such as Hitch or Step Up or any one of the Bring It On movies, you may have wondered who dancer number 1 was. That really cute dancer is Sarah Mitchell from Burlesque.

I was invited to attend the first annual Dance Track Magazine Artist Awards. I had never heard of such a thing or did I know anything about dancers or dancing for that matter, but I will explain that later. I have to admit that attending an event with all of these...

The Dance Community Reacts To The 'Black Swan' Controversy

It all started with an innocent Facebook posting of the Entertainment Weekly (EW) article about Natalie Portman’s dance double in "Black Swan", Sarah Lane, publicly airing the fact that she got little credit for her work in the movie. As a former dancer who trained at Boston Ballet School and who received her BFA in Dance from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, I thought I might stir up some conversation amongst my dance friends. Instead, I started a heated firestorm that launched opinions from pro-Sarah to pro-Natalie to just downright cynical about the whole Hollywood process.

Bosses at movie company Fox Searchlight have issued a statement to address the growing criticisms of Natalie Portman's Oscar-winning role in Black Swan.

The stand-in - American Ballet Theatre dancer Sarah Lane - has fuelled the speculation by telling Entertainment Weekly, "Of the full body shots, I would say five per cent are Natalie... I do want people to know that you cannot abs...
