Voting in North Carolina began early Tuesday morning and The Ides of March star is now rallying support for the gay community by urging fans to shut down Amendment One, which would declare marriage between a man and a woman the only valid domestic legal union.

Coming in at number two was Pitt's pal George Clooney for both "The Ides of March" and "The Descendants," and last year's winner, Johnny Depp, fell to third...

The actresss was in Europe to promote her new movie "The Ides of March" in August when she got the opportunity to bond with Smith - and she's been in disbelief at her rock star meeting ever since.

She tells People magazine, "When I was in Venice, I got to hang out with her. We walked around at night and sang lullabies. I'm still coming down from that."

And Wood is now planning to read up about the hitmaker - she's put Smith's...

George Clooney has taken aim at heavy-handed New York Police Department officials for using mace on protesters taking part in a peaceful rally against social inequality.

The Ocean's Eleven star admits he's yet to fully school himself on the ongoing Occupy Wall Street march in downtown Manhattan, where activists have been speaking out against corporate greed, but he's dismayed by allegations of police force and their use of pepper spray.

He says, "I really do feel terrible because we've been on the road for so long (promoting new movie The Ides of March), that I haven't quite been able to ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Real Steel,' 'The Ides Of March,' & More

10/3/2011 11:00am EDT
Real Steel
If you haven’t had the opportunity to read my Seth Rogen interview from last week for “50/50,” you should definitely check it out.

The film itself is one of the best this year; definitely worth watching. It impressively handles a dark subject like cancer by making light of it with humor. To label “50/50” as a straight comedy though is disrespectful to what a poignant story it is, because it also remains sensitive to immense difficulty of coping with such a serious disease.

In this way, Seth Rogen’s sarcastic jokes are well balanced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s uptight, neurotic character...

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.

How Ryan Gosling Resurrected The Movie Star

9/14/2011 11:00am EDT
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...

And Clooney further fueled speculation of a new romance after attending a premiere afterparty with Keibler.

The couple was spotted chatting and laughing in the VIP area of the Deq lounge a...

In Toronto, Canada, promoting new film The Ides of March at the city's annual film festival, the star has opened up about the birthday mishap.

It's Fashion Fail Friday! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: The fails!

Bet you never thought you would see fashionista Madonna on here. However, the W.E. director appeared at the 68th Venice Film Festival in an outfit that belongs on a nun. It might have been edgy 20 years ago, but now it just looks silly.

Evan Rachel Wood was also at the film festival, and she fared just as well when it came to fashion. While promoting Ides of March, Evan wore this "shirt-dress" that looked more like a nightgown ...

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

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 ...
