Lindsay Lohan
Just a week after Lindsay Lohan was released from jail, an unexpected family member is reaching out to help, claiming she is the stars long-last half sister! Life & Style has exclusively obtained the birth certificate of 15-yr-old Ashley Horn - and it names Linday's father, Michael Lohan, as her dad.

Ashley's mother, Kristi -who had a brief affair with Michael in the early 1990's while he was married to (but separated from) Dina--came forward with their story in 2008, but Michael denied that he was the father. "In December 2008 we had a court hearing that Michael was ordered to appear at ...

Jessica Alba posed for photographers outside the Ed Sullivan Theater prior to appearing on the "Late Show With David Letterman" on Monday. She looked cute as a button in a frilly blue doll-like dress and velvet platform heels.

When recently asked what her daughter would think of her kicking butt in her new film "Machete," she told E! Online, "She won't know until she's 18. Or I don't want to know what she thinks until she's 18."

She added that her toddler Honor came to the set of "Machete" but wasn't allowed to watch any explosions or gun scenes.

'Machete' Will Solve The Immigration Debate

August 31st, 2010 10:30am EDT
You know Machete is going to take out the bad guys. You can tell by the name, and the image of Danny Trejo wearing a trench coat full of machetes. You might not have known that he’s also going to solve the immigration debate.

“There are real issues going on in just about any movie that’s got fun elements to it,” writer/director Robert Rodriguez said. “This is just something that’s very current. It really polarizes people because it is a real issue. People want to see an answer. Our answer, in the movie, is Machete because it is such a huge problem, not that he’s even trying to solve it. It...

Jessica Alba wore skin tight gray pants and a leather jacket on her way to breakfast with her daughter Honor on Saturday. Even during a casual day out, Jess manages to look very put together.

The actress stars in "Machete," which hits theaters Sept. 3. The film is a hyper-violent adaptation of the "fake" trailer originally featured in the 2007 double-feature exploitation throwback "Grindhouse."

Jessica is also starring in the upcoming film "An Invisible Sign of My Own," an adaptation of author Aimee Bender's popular novel of the same name. The story centers on Mona Gray, a young girl who...

Sarah Silverman
With her hands in her sweater pockets, Sarah Silverman attended the "Machete" premiere in Los Angeles wearing a pleated skirt, skinny tie, and white button-down blouse.

While many stars look sexy in schoolgirl uniforms (see Carrie Underwood on the "Today Show"), Sarah fails miserably.

Her Comedy Central series "The Sarah Silverman Program" was axed this spring after just three seasons on the air.

Wow! Jessica Alba Looks Stunning In A Black & Gold Zig-Zag Dress At The 'Machete' Premiere

Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba showed up to the "Machete" premiere in Los Angeles wearing a Charlie Brown-inspired black and gold zig zag dress and gladiator-like heels. She's a lot hotter than the Peanuts character.

The film centers on Machete (Danny Trejo), a former Mexican Federale who plays by his own rules and doesn't answer to anybody. Jessica plays blade-wielding ICE agent Sartana. Lindsay Lohan also plays a small role in the film, but she didn't show up at the premiere, which took place just a day after her release from rehab.

Jessica was recently named the fourth hottest mom in Hollywood. She was...

Fall Movie Preview Part 1: September

This fall, moviegoers have an extremely large and diverse selection of movies to choose from. The abundance of (hopefully) promising films is unlike any year in recent memory as movies of all kind are set to release during the crucial and often divisive awards season.

This September audiences are in for a slew of independent films that are as different as they are engaging. George Clooney will star in “The American” (Sept. 1), directed by Anton Corbijn whose 2007 film “Control” earned strong praise and attention. The movie is a throwback to the international spy thrillers of the 70s and c...

The Really Expendables: Actors Stallone Failed To Get On Board

August 13th, 2010 10:46am EDT
The Expendables
It’s been joked that the Internet acted as casting director for Sylvester Stallone’s muscle and explosion symphony The Expendables. Setting out to create a who’s who of action stars of the past 30 years, Stallone cobbled together a cadre of modern stars like Jet Li and Jason Statham along with a healthy stable of direct-to-video relics like Dolph Lundgren and Eric Roberts to form his retro team of ‘roided up ass-kickers. But when looking at the film’s full cast, and its heavy reliance on muscle-heads from the worlds of MMA, professional wrestling and the NFL, it’s hard to shake the nagging ...

Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan's jail sentence appears to have cost her an appearance in the trailer for her new movie "Machete."

The actress was featured in the first teaser for the Robert Rodriguez film in May, but she has been left out of a follow-up - and her name no longer features in the end credits.

The snub comes just three days after Lohan was sentenced to serve 90 days behind bars for violating the terms of her probation on a 2007 DUI arrest.

Ironically, Lohan will be serving time when the movie, which stars Danny Trejo and Steven Seagal, is released at the beginning of September. She is expect...

Michelle Rodriguez
Michelle Rodriguez must have had to keep her legs close together when she wore this dress to the 2010 World Music Awards in Monte Carlo yesterday. It's so short, it must have been hard for her to keep the world from seeing what's underneath. In fact, it's also see-through, so the world DID get to see what's underneath!

The "Avatar" actress stars in the upcoming film "Machete," which is based on the spoof trailer featured in Robert Rodriguez & Quentin Tarantino's "Grindhouse."

Danny Trejo stars as a knife-wielding vigilante who nearly dies in an assassination conspiracy, only to return lat...
