'The Dictator' And 15 Other Beards That Steal Movies

May 16th, 2012 1:07pm EDT
Sacha Baron Cohen brings his trademark ridicu-shock humor to his new film "The Dictator," but it may be his beard that steals the show.

He plays Admiral General Aladeen, deposed dictator of the (fictional) Republic of Wadiya, who flees to the U.S. when his country converts to democracy. As a dictator, he's used to ruling with an iron fist, an incorrigible sense of righteous cruelty, and a thick, bushy beard that could house several terrified baby sparrows.

Aladeen may feel like a fish out of water in New York City, but he'd feel right at home among Hollywood's most magnificent beards of a...

Actress Meagan Good has taken a personal vow of celibacy until she finds the man she's destined to marry.

The "Love Guru" beauty, 30, admits she has found herself turning to Christianity more and more as she matures and she's given up sex until she's ready to settle down.

Good reveals she recently embarked on a new relationship following her split from American football player Thomas Jones last year, but she's in no rush to take the romance to the next level - and is leaving her love life in the hands of a higher power.

She tells Sister 2 Sister magazine, "I met someone special, but you ...

Hindus Worried About Keanu Reeves Movie

September 8th, 2009 9:36pm EDT
Hindus Worried About Keanu Reeves Movie
Hindu leaders in America are concerned Keanu Reeves' reported portrayal of the incarnation of Lord Vishnu in a new movie will be another awful Hollywood depiction of their religion, belief system and gods.

Top Hindus are still reeling from the way Mike Myers poked fun at their religion in The Love Guru, and they fear Reeves' new film "Hanuman", in which he'll play Rama, will be another misinformed film about Hinduism.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed tells WENN, "Hindus are concerned. If the makers of this proposed movie intend to base the storyline on the epic Ramayana and make references t...

'American Idol' Recap: The Race Is Closer Than You Think

May 14th, 2009 8:45am EDT
American Idol
It was a night filled with celebrities and one mildly surprising exit. "American Idol" just keeps getting better, and glitzier, as the drama and guest star quotient ratchets up alongside the increase in performance quality.

Yes, it seems "American Idol" has turned into a cavalcade of stars. What started as an amateur singing competition has quickly become the place for all the famous people to play and plug.

We started with the cast of "Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian" plugging their new movie even before the credits. Funny how the show's desk being donated to ...

Hindus Support Catholics Over 'Angels & Demons' Ruckus

May 4th, 2009 3:11pm EDT
Hindu scholars have joined Catholics around the world by condemning the filmmakers of The Da Vinci Code prequel Angels and Demons for "playing with the sentiments of the faithful for mercantile greed."

Universal Society of Hinduism officials in America have voted to censure the film, starring Tom Hanks, because they claim director Ron Howard and his producers have failed to acknowledge how their film could damage Catholic faith. The film explores the concept that a secret brotherhood slays and murders those who get too close to revealing the truth behind the myth that Jesus Christ fat...

Hindus Offer Mike Myers The Chance To 'Heal His Wounds'

February 27th, 2009 9:18am EST
Mike Myers
Funnyman Mike Myers has been offered the chance to redeem himself by the religious leaders who boycotted his flop film The Love Guru.

Hindu scholars are beginning to feel sorry for Myers after the film picked up three dishonors at the Golden Raspberry Awards last weekend, - and they're offering the comic the chance to reverse his fortunes and get Hindus back on his side.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, who led the protests against "The Love Guru" for lampooning Hinduism, says, "If Myers visited a Hindu temple, paid his obeisance, expressed remorse, and promised not to denigrate Hinduis...

Julia Roberts
America's leading Hindus have applauded Julia Roberts for showing them respect during a recent trip to the sacred Taj Mahal temple in Agra, India. The star and her husband Danny Moder were spotted visiting the tourist attraction last week, and Roberts was photographed sporting a bindi mark on her forehead - which has delighted the Hindu nation.

Nevada-based Hindu statesman Rajan Zed tells WENN, "Julia Roberts honored the traditions of India by sporting a bindi on her forehead during her recent trip to India, and we are very happy she did. It was a mark of respect that has not gone unno...

Collateral Damage From Robert Plant's Decision To Nix Zep Reunion

Since the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reformed last December for a one-off show to pay tribute to late Atlantic Records founder and legend Ahmet Ertegun, the man who discovered and brought us some of the most talented artists of all-time (seriously, we really could use another Ahmet right about now-- but since the almighty dollar overshadows the need for actual talent we can forget that) and gave a handful of folks in England the greatest holiday gift ever, there has been a weekly story about the band going on tour. And not going on tour. But wanting to tour. And not wanting to tour. ...

Shrek The Musical... Yes, The Musical

December 18th, 2008 11:15am EST
Shrek the Musical
There is a famous story that during the voice over work for the original motion picture Shrek, Mike Myers, who was of course voicing the title character, decided halfway through that Shrek needed a Scottish accent. Myers's decision cost Dreamworks millions of dollars in time and reanimating Shrek's mouth to coincide with his new Scottish dialect. Well, here it is seven years later and Dreamworks is once again spending millions of dollars on the intricacies of Shrek's voice. Not for animation purposes -- Shrek (played by Brian D'arcy James, at least I think he is underneath all that makeup, ...

Finding The Right Halloween Costume And Ones To Avoid

October 13th, 2008 10:00am EDT
The Dark Knight
Picking the right Halloween costume can get tricky, especially when you're over the age of twelve. One thing that you need to be aware of in your selection is that there's a fine line

between having a good Halloween costume and making an ass of yourself. The same basic childhood rules still apply today: wear nothing that heavily restricts movement or vision, wear nothing that will burst into flames, and a homemade costume always trumps something store bought. Once you get the right idea, putting together a costume is easy. It's getting the idea that's the hard part. As Halloween sweeps i...

Verne Troyer's Ex Fires Back At Allegations

August 3rd, 2008 12:00pm EDT
Verne Troyer
Actor Verne Troyer's sex tape partner Ranae Shrider has fired back at the star after he accused her of abuse in a lawsuit filed on Thursday. The aspiring actress was named in the $20 million suit, which claims she intentionally inflicted emotional distress and battery upon Troyer - by releasing explicit footage of them together and beating him up.

But Shrider is refuting the claims.

Her spokesperson says in a statement: "This lawsuit is ridiculous and riddled with lie upon lie from Verne Troyer and his camp. It is in our opinion a transparent attempt to secure as much publicity as...

'The Wackness' Has A Solid Screenplay, Excellent Performances

July 2nd, 2008 10:08am EDT
The Wackness
Doesn't it seem, at times, that the year 2000 is still in the future? This mostly seems the case when the word "year" appears before "2000;" regardless, I had to do a double take when I first learned that we now live in an era that is producing 1990's era period pieces.

"The Wackness" takes place in New York City circa summer 1994. It's an interesting time for New York that saw the beginning of the Giuliani era and the end of, for better or worse, any tolerance whatsoever for crime.

The recent crackdown on crime is a problem for high school senior and social outcast Luke Shapir...

Mike Myers Had Diarrhea On Aussie Red Carpet

Mike Myers
Funnyman Mike Myers wasn't laughing at the recent The Love Guru premiere in Australia - he was battling diarrhea on the red carpet.

The actor realized he was ill on his way to the screening earlier this month and had to stop at a number of restaurants to use restrooms before he actually got to the premiere. But his embarrassment didn't end there - he then had to try to hide his upset stomach from a fan at a pharmacy counter.

He explains, "In Australia, when you go into a drug store you actually have to talk to the pharmacist...I was looking around and I was, like, 'Hi!' 'Hello, yo...

Catholics Join Hindu Outrage Over 'The Love Guru'

June 25th, 2008 9:23am EDT
The Love Guru
A leading Catholic group has come to the aid of America's Hindus who are boycotting Mike Myers' new film The Love Guru because religious officials have found the film to be "morally offensive."

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has slapped the comedy with its highest classification. Hindu leader Rajan Zed, who has been leading the outcry about the new film, is thrilled that other religious officials are taking his concerns seriously - branding the new 'O' rating the Catholics have given the movie a "remarkable interfaith gesture."

Officials at the USCCB's Of...

Hindus Furious About 'The Love Guru'

June 21st, 2008 7:30pm EDT
Love Guru
Movie executives at Paramount Pictures have honored their promise to preview Mike Myers' new film The Love Guru for concerned Hindu leaders in Los Angeles.

Hindus, led by Rajan Zed, campaigned to see the film before its release on Friday - in a bid to make sure their fears about the movie were overblown. But the screening has only served to bolster the religious opposition to the film, which Zed and his followers insist is disrespectful to Hindus and their beliefs.

Zed has now urged Hindus around the world to boycott the movie, claiming the picture "lampoons Hinduism and Hindu c...

Talent-Packed 'The Love Guru' a Script of Destiny From Funnyman Mike Myers

June 20th, 2008 9:16am EDT
( – Commendably co-written by Mike Myers (who also wrote characters for 2002’s “Austin Powers in Goldmember” and 1999’s “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me”), you know lines like “sheket bevakasha” came directly from his bowels.

Granted, I was one of the few at my screening to understand this Hebrew line as “quiet, please” and laugh at its precision placement, but that’s OK.

Though always known as a hippie funnyman, the novel script for “The Love Guru” actually holds personal and grave emotional value for Myers. He has said the film is a “reflection of the ...

Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake is convinced his newfound career as an actor is fate - because he was poised to try out as a TV star before finding fame as a singer. Timberlake has made a successful crossover from music to film, thanks to well-received roles in movies like Alpha Dog and new release The Love Guru.

And he believes he was always meant to act.

Timberlake tells Star magazine, "(Acting is) a huge passion of mine. I was having a conversation with my step-dad the other day, and he said, 'It's funny that you eventually got into film.' He reminded me how I got a phone call when I was 1...
