Jennifer Aniston Says Filming 2006 Nude Scene Was Difficult & Strange

7/13/2011 8:51am EDT
Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston felt uncomfortable shooting her nude scene for the 2006 film "The Break-Up."

She explained, "It was difficult. Not only are you just showing a boob or something it's...the whole deal. In front of people. It's very strange. After the 15th time, then I was like, 'Why am I doing this so many times?'"

Jen made tongues wag over her new film "Horrible Bosses" and rumors she appears topless in it. She plays a raunchy, nympho dentist who sexually harasses her dental hygienist. She also wears skimpy lingerie while seducing Charlie Day's character.

Jason Bateman: Greatest Career Resurrection Ever?

7/7/2011 3:00pm EDT
jason bateman
One of the biggest stars in Hollywood right now was practically living in obscurity 15 years ago. The second act of Jason Bateman’s career is almost as unbelievable as it is well-deserved. After a career-boosting (heck, career-reviving) role on Fox’s short-lived sitcom “Arrested Development,” Bateman has become ubiquitous in Hollywood comedies and pretty much synonymous with the passive-aggressive straight man character. This weekend, his new movie “Horrible Bosses” opens nationwide co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey. The cast, which mi...

Can Jennifer Aniston Redeem Herself With 'The Switch'?

8/18/2010 11:00am EDT
the switch
This weekend “The Switch,” starring Jennifer Aniston, will open in theaters and if early reviews are an indicator, Aniston has yet another flop on her hands. Aniston, who was once a promising leading lady, has become a punch line for moviegoers who are as likely to expect good movies from her as they are a decent stand-up act from Carrot Top.

There was a time when Hollywood and fans expected great things from Aniston who was riding high from the success of “Friends.” Aniston’s only real quality films have been the few independent movies she did early in her career. Without argument, “The G...

'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Arrested Development
The family that chicken dances together, stays together. With the February 24 announcement that Michael Cera - the lone holdout - had finally signed on for the long-rumored Arrested Development movie, message boards went bonkers for Bluth bananas.

Cera is easily the most successful and visible post-Bluth. With SuperBad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Sundance darling Paper Heart, this kid has perfected the tentatively awkward comedic timing that made you root for the love story of George Michael and his cousin Maeby.

Where have the Bluths been since we last laughed a...

Is Facebook Ruining Breakups?

2/17/2009 2:30pm EST
Valentine's Day is over, so we can swing the pendulum away from all things romantic, chocolaty, couple-ish, and pink and red for a moment to examine the anti-valentine - the breakup. Breakups are awful all the way around for all involved, whether you are the one who does the breaking, you're on the receiving end of the "we need to talk" conversation, or you are one half of a mutual and amicable parting of ways. After any breakup, there is a mourning period. There is the requisite crying (girls), brooding (guys), not wanting to get out of bed, and either not eating or over eating. There is a...

Workplace Romance: Costars Who Fell In Love

It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Worst Dates In Movies

Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalo
First dates are always awkward. Between not knowing what to say, fumbling with the check when it arrives at the table, or wondering whether there will be a kiss at the end of the night, these situations are ones people can't wait to overcome. Sometimes first dates can be disastrous from the start, and you hope to God you never see the other person again, that is if you don't die of utter embarrassment right there on the spot.

Hollywood loves to over emphasize situations and showcase things that probably would never happen in real life; at least you hope they'll never happen to you! He...

Are There Any Bankable Actresses in Hollywood?

Halle Berry in Things We Lost In The Fire
Not too long ago Warner Bros. president of production, Jeff Robinov, stated, "We are no longer doing movies with women in the lead." Apparently, Robinov won't even look at a script with a female lead. Is this man spewing forth misogynistic quackery, or is he, as a businessman, simply stating the obvious - that women no longer come with built-in audiences, opening weekend numbers, and box office success?

Ticking off the names of guaranteed male money makers is easy: Will Smith, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Jim Carrey, and even behind-the-camera ...

Jennifer Aniston's new movie has been panned by test audiences. The Break Up - on which the star fell for new boyfriend, Vince Vaughn, on set - is her latest attempt to win favor with cinemagoers after a string of flops, but initial reactions have not been good.

An insider told New York Post newspaper: "The original screenplay had Jennifer and Vince's characters breaking up at the end. So it was shot that way - but test audiences hated it. It tested really, and I mean really, badly."

As a result of the negativity, the lead actors had to re-shoot parts of the film, reportedly cos...
