Actress Kate Hudson has launched a bitter attack on tabloid newspapers, accusing them of printing "lies" about her trips out in public. The Fool's Gold actress - who spends much of her downtime indoors - is so sick of reading false accounts of her social evenings on the town; she rarely gives "mean" journalists the opportunity to write untruths about her.

Actor Matthew McConaughey struggled to get a good night's sleep while working on latest movie Fool's Gold in Australia, because he lived in constant fear of snake attacks.

The Hollywood hunk isn't usually afraid of the reptiles and even kept some as pets during his stay Down Under. But he hated finding unexpected visitors in his bedroom and was always on edge when night fell.

The 72-year-old - an avid viewer of the action series - says, "He asked me to play h...

Are There Any Bankable Actresses in Hollywood?

March 11th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
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 ...

Donald Sutherland
Movie veteran Donald Sutherland was misdiagnosed with lung cancer after scuba training for his new movie Fool's Gold left him coughing up blood. The 72-year-old M*A*S*H star's super-rich character was supposed to be a top diver in the treasure-hunt film, and so he took lessons in a bid to master scuba skills.

He passed his diving exams in Australia, where the film was shot last year and then headed back for a Christmas break before shooting began - and that's when doctors realized something was seriously wrong.

He recalls, "Two days before New Year's Eve I had excruciating pain in...

Here's the million dollar question: why isn't anyone reviewing these previews? Look no further, here is your one-stop shop for preview reviews. This month we're looking at Str...
