On working with Ryan, she said, "He's your dream costar. I have never felt so creatively satisfied on a film." Their movie centers on a motorcycle stunt rider who considers committing a crime in order to provide for his wife and child. This decision puts him on a collision course with a cop-turned-politician.

Actress Eva Mendes has been granted a restraining order against a New York man she accused of hounding her for three years.

The Hitch actress told a judge she has been living in "constant fear" of John C. Luna, who allegedly believes he is in a relationship with her and that she is "willing to die for him." Mendes also claims Luna has been harassing her since 2008 and even showed up at her Los Angeles home in May.

In legal documents, she states, "As a result of Mr. Luna's conduct directed at me... including references in a letter that he knows I am willing to die for him, and his showi...

Will Smith is baffled by the controversy surrounding the location of the massive trailer he has been calling home while shooting Men in Black III on the streets of New York, insisting it's the same mobile home he's always used when filming in the city.

The Hollywood star is currently shooting the sci-fi blockbuster in Manhattan, but he hit headlines last week after residents in the Soho district complained about the sizeable eyesore parked outside their homes.

The two-storey trailer, which features a cinema, a lounge bar and offices, as well as a full-sized kitchen, large bedroom and bath...

Actress Eva Mendes is desperate to learn how to swim now that she has a pool.

The sexy 2 Fast 2 Furious and Hitch star insists her fear of the water is something she has to overcome and she's committed to taking lessons.

She says, "I can't swim. I don't know how to. I'm pathetic... I should know how to swim.

"I'm finally in a house, where I have my own pool and I'm like, 'OK, I'm gonna learn', (but) it's been a year now and I still just stick to the shallow (end).

Eva Mendes: 'I Don't Think Marriage Is Necessary'

Eva Mendes is adamant she'll never walk down the aisle - because married life is "boring".

The Hitch actress has been dating filmmaker George Augusto since 2002, but the pair has never taken the next step to make the union official.

And Mendes insists the tradition of marriage is no longer relevant.

She says, "I just don't think marriage is necessary, as necessary as society makes it. And I don't have a negative point of view on it. I just think it's a very old tradition and if you look back to what marriage symbolizes in the first place... it has nothing to do with why we get married ...

Hollywood Unwrapped Column: Lets Get Ready To Dance

April 8th, 2011 3:30pm EDT
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...

Race Matters: Is Hollywood Truly Color Blind When It Comes To On-Screen Romance?

September 29th, 2008 9:49am EDT
Die Another Day
In John Grisham's bestselling novel "The Pelican Brief," investigative journalist Gray Grantham and law student Darby Shaw uncover a political conspiracy and in the process, end up between the sheets. In the 1993 film version, Darby Shaw (played by Julia Roberts) and Grantham merely share a chaste hug in the film's conclusion. What happened between page and screen? One theory: In the novel Grantham is white; in the film, he's portrayed by Academy-Award winning - and black - actor Denzel Washington.

The stigma of interracial relationships in cinema can be traced back to the 1934 Motio...

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...

Hollywood's Sexiest Funnymen

In Hollywood there seems to be an everlasting stereotype that actors are extremely good looking and almost immortal. They are the untouchable eye candy on the screen. It doesn't matter what their personalities are like, we still idolize them and their looks.

Then there are those actors who seem to have very down-to-earth personalities and are so funny that you can't help but find them sexy. According to Psychology Today online, "The allure of male humor is so strong that female laughter may have evolved as a signal of sexual interest."

Here is our list of the top Hollywood sexy ...

The Image of Black Women in Entertainment

March 24th, 2008 1:17pm EDT
Tyler Perry
Where in the world are black women in today's entertainment? There is a significant dearth in quality images of African-American women in television and film. And no, Oprah's un-Godly success and stature doesn't diminish this truth.

It wasn't always like this. In 1968, Diahann Carroll starred in the ground breaking series "Julia." Heralded as being the first series to star a black woman in a non-stereotypical role, "Julia" produced 86 episodes and Carroll earned herself a golden globe.

In the 70s, Pam Grier played a character that went against the typical African American fema...

February Movie Preview Review: 'Strange Wilderness,' 'Fool's Gold' & More

February 1st, 2008 9:41am EST
I'm a fan of previews. There are few joys in this world to 20 minutes of sitting back, relaxing, and forgetting what movie you actually came in to see.

Previews have become something of a mini movie festival, featuring loud music and explosions, two-second snippets of sex, and great one-liners. Most importantly, this festival is instrumental in deciding what movies most people will see for the next month.

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...

Will Smith has crashed a fan's Bar Mitzvah. The Getting Jiggy With It singer was visiting Jerusalem's Western Wall when he burst in on Atir Cohen's coming-of-age service on Thursday.

Cohen, 13, was in the middle of reading the Jewish holy book - the Torah - when he heard shouting and saw girls trying to get a glimpse of the Hitch star by pushing against a barrier separating men from women.

However, the 'Wicked Wisdom' front woman thinks he still does a good job. "Will has to parent the way he feels he needs to parent. When mommy comes home, it's a different ballgame."
