Carey Mulligan To Auction Off Prada Met Gala Dress On eBay

Carey Mulligan
Actress Carey Mulligan has put the gown she wore to New York's annual Costume Institute Gala up for sale to raise money for charity.

Mulligan, who wed singer Marcus Mumford last month, made her red carpet debut as a married woman at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's glitzy event, known as the Met Ball, in a futuristic gold and silver Prada piece on May 7th.

And despite making a splash in the dress as one of the evening's co-chairs with Vogue editor Anna Wintour and designer Miuccia Prada, the Drive star is gearing up to say good riddance to the garment.

The 26 year old has put the stun...

MTV Movie Award Surprises: Can 'The Help' Beat 'Hunger Games?'

May 1st, 2012 3:30pm EDT
MTV Movie Award Surprises
The MTV Movie Awards have their finger on the pulse of 2011/2012 cinema with tons of nominations for The Hunger Games, Bridesmaids and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2. If they’re really current, Hunger Games will sweep but there are a few interesting surprises here too.

The Help is a nominee for best picture. Maybe it’ll be the dark horse winner and make up for losing the Oscar? Only if Hunger Games and Bridesmaids split the vote. It’s interesting that MTV acknowledges the popular historical drama, perhaps doing its part for civil rights education.

For best male performance, he...

Carey Mulligan Stopped By Police After Red Bull Bender

November 29th, 2011 11:23am EST
Carey Mulligan
Carey Mulligan was once pulled over by police for "veering around in the road" while driving in Los Angeles - because she was "so wired" after bingeing on an energy drink.

The An Education star had a brush with the law when she was taking her Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn home, but the cop who pulled them over decided not to take further action.

She tells New York Magazine blog Vulture, "We almost got arrested once in L.A. I used to drive him to and from work when we were doing the movie... and one day we shot until two in the morning. I'd never had Red Bull before, and I had, lik...

Who'd You Rather: Ryan Gosling Or George Clooney

Ryan Gosling & George Clooney
George Clooney, 50, and Ryan Gosling, 30, attended "The Ides of March" Los Angeles premiere yesterday. Ryan opted for a green suit with a thin tie while George wore basic black.

Which actor would you rather take home? The young and vibrant "Drive" star or the well-seasoned but sexy Clooney?

Don't get your hopes up - George has been hanging around with Stacy Keibler, who also attended the movie premiere. But Ryan is looking for a baby mamma. The star recently told Britain's The Times newspaper he'd love nothing better than to start a family.

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies 50/50
After hearing all the hype about “Drive,” I couldn’t believe how much I hated it. It starts out promising: director Nicolas Winding Refn has some cool backseat perspectives of the driver (Ryan Gosling), and a sleek electronic soundtrack gives his shots of LA a seedy, neon glow.

However the directing quickly becomes pretentious, since Refn frequently reuses the same types of shots. Then the 80s style pop starts to feel COMPLETELY wrong, especially when you’re hit by unexpected, excessive violence on screen. These things would be more tolerable though, if the film effectively built drama...

Ryan Gosling Really Wanted To Play A Superhero

Ryan Gosling took a role in new movie Drive because he missed out on the chance to star in a superhero film.

The actor appears alongside Carey Mulligan in the movie as a Hollywood stuntman who doubles as a getaway driver, and Gosling has revealed he took on the high-action job because he missed out on the chance to star as a real superhero.

He tells Fox News, "I really wanted to make a superhero film but all the good ones were taken so I thought I would have to make my own at this point... When I read this script I thought there was a way to do that with this stunt driver stuck in the myt...

'The Lion King 3D' Dominates Weekend Box Office

September 19th, 2011 10:15am EDT
The Lion King 3D
The 3D re-release of Disney classic "The Lion King" has roared to the top of the box office chart, grossing $29.3 million.

The animated family film, which features the voice of teen idol Jonathan Taylor Thomas as a young Simba, was originally released in 1994, when it opened with takings of more than $40 million, and it's proved a big hit the second time around, too.

"The Lion King 3D" knocked last week's number one, the star-studded outbreak thriller "Contagion," into second place with $14.5 million.

Ryan Gosling's "Drive" enters at three, followed by "The Help" at four. The remake of 1...

Review: 'Drive' Steers Clear Of Movie Cliches By Shifting Into High Gear

September 17th, 2011 12:12pm EDT
Drive
“Drive” is a point blank shotgun blast to your dome. This is not a metaphor. About a half hour into “Drive”, the audience (and myself) started questioning what exactly Director Nicolas Winding Refn was attempting to accomplish by putting all this pesky exposition in an action movie. Then second act of the movie kicks in with a literal point-blank shotgun blast to the dome, and does not let up. It's jarring how unexpectedly graphically violent this film is. The blood and violence arrives quickly and doesn't stop flowing until the credits. Once Ryan Gosling's character is in the sh*t, he's i...

Most of us ladies know Ryan Gosling as the sweet, sensitive and sexy Noah Calhoun from The Notebook, and most guys know him as that guy they can never live up to their girlfriends. But after Ryan’s new movie Drive, there may be a turn in the table resulting in a few more man crushes in this world. This highly anticipated movie may change Ryan’s career and send him to the top of the Hollywood Food Chain.

Love him or hate him, we all know the guy can act - Half Nelson, Lars and the Real Girl and Blue Valentine proves that. But Drive shows that intense, edgy side of Gosling that makes him sex...

Review: 'Drive' - Two Jews Agree This Over The Top Thriller Stalls (Video)

Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: Ryan Gosling is 'Driver'. He drives...fast...very fast...If you're a burglar, he's your go-to guy. Just make sure you get the job done in five minutes. Because that's all you got... One minute late, Driver is gone.

Now, driving a get-a-way car is Driver's night job. His day job is slightly more glamorous. Driver is a stunt driver for movies...That is, when he's not working as a mechanic, for Shannon (Bryan Cranston) who just happens to be the Driver's agent and manager as well.

How Ryan Gosling Resurrected The Movie Star

September 14th, 2011 11:00am EDT
gosling
Movie critics, driven to understandable cynicism by the onslaught of unnecessary remakes (there is no reason for another "Footloose") and re-imaginings of every superhero from the Green Lantern to a hammer-wielding Norse god, have declared the movie star extinct.  I think the stellar year actor Ryan Gosling, 30, is having is inspiring proof that the existence of the movie star in this entertainment climate is still possible. 

For this lover of pop culture, a movie star is more than someone who makes a lot of films and walks a lot of red carpets.  It’s Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” “Th...

All eyes were on the buxom Christina Hendricks at the New York premiere of "I Don't Know How She Does It" last night. The "Mad Men" star wore a revealing rose-colored satin Vivienne Westwood gown.

In the film, a working mother (Sarah Jessica Parker) strives to balance her demanding career with the stress of raising two young children and maintaining a healthy marriage. Christina plays her best friend, who's had plenty of experience balancing kids and a career.

Christina has several other upcoming projects, including "Drive" with Ryan Gosling, "Detachment" and the animated adventure "All-S...

Faithful readers, I apologize that we didn’t have a Trailer Talk column last week. I just moved into a wonderful new apartment and got pretty wrapped up in the packing/unpacking process. Now that I’m settled though, we’re back to business as usual.

I watched Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion” last week, which I really enjoyed. It’s an infectious whodunit with fantastic casting, eerie electronic music that effectively builds tension, and solid character development. My Grade: A

Arriving in theaters this week are the Ryan Gosling crime thriller “Drive,” the Sarah Jessica Parker dramedy “...

Drive has been tearing up the festival circuit since it premiered at Cannes in May. Through the Los Angeles Film Festival, Telluride and the Toronto International Film Festival, the film has wowed audiences with its brutal violence and subtle silence, omitting almost all the dialogue.

Ryan Gosling plays a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver at night. He gets into a bad deal trying to help his neighbor (Carey Mulligan). It’s a heroic turn for Gosling. As if he weren’t dreamy enough already, he described movies as putting you under a spell. Is anyone not in love with Ry...

The end of the year is always the most exciting time for true movie lovers as the studios release the films they hope to compete in the race for the many awards shows that will happen early next year. This September will have some decent films to choose from (namely "Contagion" and "Drive"), but with a greater amount of less-than-impressive fare than is normally seen. Either way, this first month in the awards season will have moviegoers flocking to the cinema nearly every weekend.

Video Of Ryan Gosling Breaking Up A Fight In New York City - Was It Faked?

August 23rd, 2011 11:00am EDT
Ryan Gosling
Did Ryan Gosling really break up a fight on a New York City street, as we reported last night? He sure did, although a few websites are claiming the scene was faked. Watch the video below and judge for yourself.

Gosling is easily identified by his tattoos later in the video. This is either an actual fight - over a painting - or one of the most subliminal viral videos ever made. If this video was faked, Ryan Gosling would be immediately indentified (not "the guy from the movie") and we would get one perfect shot of his face at some point.

That's if the ad agency wasn't ingenious. That's ...

Carey Mulligan Hasn't Been As Busy As She Looks

Carey Mulligan in Drive
Since her star making performance in the acclaimed film An Education, it seems like we see Carey Mulligan everywhere. She was in San Diego last week for Comic-Con, where her fall movie Drive previewed some scenes for fans. Speaking with the press at the Hilton Bayfront nearby, she assured us she’d been plenty lazy.

“I stopped,” Mulligan said. “I didn’t work for a year after Wall Street. So I finished that in November. It was the following October that I did Drive. I took a year off. I didn’t do anything at all really.”

Call it movie magic. Hollywood tends to make everything look bigger, i...

Dangerous Curves Ahead: Five Favorite Voluptuous Celebrities

There are some aspects of the entertainment world that I just don’t like: dangerously aggressive paparazzi, the fact that Jensen Ackles has yet to get an Emmy nomination for his consistently outstanding performance on The CW’s “Supernatural,” and that Hollywood embraces only one waifish, rail thin standard of beauty.

When trolling my favorite entertainment blogs for the latest gossip and red carpet pictures I've noticed that I’m not admiring or mocking the fashion, because I’m overwhelmed by the desire to feed these poor starving starlets a few cheeseburgers. Ultimately, all kinds of bea...

LA Film Fest 2011 Review - 'Drive' A Movie Marriage That Doesn't Work

June 21st, 2011 11:00am EDT
Drive photo
The strange thing about the engaging work by filmmaker Nicholas Winding Refn (“Bronson” and the “Pusher” trilogy!) is that his movies always seem to relish having an distinctively uneven tone and it’s both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand it’s a unique way of shaking up the traditions of the modern day motion picture, but on the other it’s a discombobulating device that almost ensures the work will never be five-star stuff – a cinematic conundrum indeed. Unfortunately the problem is even more glaring and severe in the case of Refn’s latest outing "Drive" due to the filmmaker abando...
