10 Romantic Comedies Guys Might Actually Enjoy
Women always have their go-to movies when they feel like laughing with a touch of romance involved. There are genres of movies dedicated to us that are filling up our movie libraries daily and usually men are busy snubbing their noses at our vast collection of romcoms.

Below are ten very popular romantic comedies that may want to make your man sit down with you on the couch, cuddle and even pay attention. (Note: We aren't making any promises, ladies!)

Spotlight On The Cute And Quirky Zooey Deschanel

10/20/2011 4:00pm EDT
Zooey Deschanel
If you haven’t heard of Zooey Deschanel, you are most likely living under a rock. She’s the cute and quirky girl from Elf, 500 Days of Summer and the one of the only new fall shows that seem to be thriving, New Girl. We love her for a few different reasons. She is married to Death Cab for Cutie front man, Ben Gibbard (I’m sure they make the sweetest music together), she is not afraid to be a big dork (see New Girl) and her character in Failure to Launch (the only good thing about that movie).

The thirty one year old was born in Los Angeles into an entertainment family, hence her and her si...

Girl Crush Of The Day: Zooey Deschanel

7/17/2009 2:12pm EDT
Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel is smarter than you. She's also sassier, wittier and hotter. It's the combination of these and other factors that imbue her acerbic performances with an edgy sexiness. And yet she never loses the sweetness that makes her so approachable.

Zooey Deschanel is, quite simply, bewitching. This is by no means an original thought; there isn't an interview, review or consideration of the lady that doesn't invoke her turquoise eyes, milky skin and jet-black hair.

Even in mainstream fare such as Failure to Launch, she's the sardonic edge that keeps the film from drowning in its o...

Spotlight On Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper has been acting for an entire decade but he's just starting to get his well-deserved fame. It seems you can't open a tabloid without coming across his name and who he is allegedly linked to. Although he claims to be just friends with Jennifer Aniston, pictures of their "date" were plastered all over the magazine covers and they are still a hot topic in celebrity gossip. Did he blow her over, is she just not that into him, do we really care?

Born in Philadelphia, Bradley was Georgetown educated before studying at the Actors Studio Drama School at New School University in N...

Autumn in New York
The stereotypical "Chick Flick" is a movie geared towards the ladies. You drag your boyfriends to see them with you, cry your eyes out and believe that there really is a fairy tale ending to every story. There are some great chick flicks out there that even guys don't mind watching…don't be embarrassed! Yet, there are a few that even chicks don't like!

Here is our list of the worst chick flicks:

Failure to Launch

AKA "Failure to Make Money at the Box Office" had potential to be a good chick flick but bombed badly. Sarah Jessica Parker plays a therapist/interventionist who ...

Matthew McConaughey Discusses 'Surfer Dude,' Rumors About Him & More

Matthew McConaughey
It must be nice being Matthew McConaughey. While making the film "Surfer, Dude" - out on DVD Dec. 30 - he spent time with friends and co-stars Woody Harrelson and Willie Nelson. Just minutes from the beach, the cast and crew wrapped filming each day, sat back with a few cocktails (and who knows what else) and hung out. Sounds like more play than work.

So how different is McConaughey from his weed-smoking, naked didgeridoo-playing character in "Surfer, Dude?" The actor took some time on a windy California morning to talk to Starpulse about the film, how he stays fit, several rumors tha...

Sarah Jessica Parker Talks About Getting Older, Finding Good Roles

3/15/2006 1:50pm EST
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker is hoping to change Hollywood stereotypes of placing 20- and 30-something actresses in romantic roles. Following the demise of her show Sex And The City in 2004, the 40-year-old actress has played the romantic lead in two box office hits, The Family Stone and Failure To Launch.

And while Parker admits she is often sent scripts for younger roles, she hopes she can convince producers to consider 40-something females in the same parts.

She says, "I read the script the other day and I said to my agent, 'I'm too old for this part now.' I knew it as soon as I rea...
