Meryl Streep To Play Margaret Thatcher?

Meryl Streep
Meryl Streep is reportedly in talks to play Britain's first female prime minister Margaret Thatcher in a new biopic.

The Hollywood actress is said to be in negotiations to re-team with her Mamma Mia! director Phyllida Lloyd for the 1982-set film, which will show Thatcher in the run-up to the Falklands War.

Moulin Rouge! actor Jim Broadbent has reportedly been lined up to play the former British leader's husband, Denis, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Thatcher led Britain for 11 years between 1979 and 1990. Her career famously waned prior to the conflict in the Falklands but she r...

Amanda Seyfried has denied rumors she has split from her Mamma Mia! co-star Dominic Cooper.

The actress has been dating the British star since they met on the set of the hit movie-musical in 2008, but she was rocked last month by allegations their "on/off" relationship was finally over. However, when asked by Britain's Heat magazine if there is "trouble in paradise," Seyfried replies: "No. It's not that at all."

The actress urges fans not to read too much into comments she recently made in a Teen Vogue magazine interview, suggesting she was unsure about the long-term status of her roman...

Amanda Seyfried personally responds to most of her fan mail - because her mother forces her to write replies.

The "Mamma Mia!" star's mom, Ann, has taken charge of her daughter's post bag since she shot to fame at the age of 18, and makes sure the actress takes the time to answer letters from fans.

Seyfried says, "Whenever I'm at home, she sits me down and makes me reply to fans. She gets really excited and says, 'You got 14 pieces of mail today!' She goes through all my mail, she's very efficient. It feels like team homework because she gives me stuff to sign and then she Fed-Exes it out...

Amanda Seyfried talks about choosing a man over her career, fitness, life in Hollywood and a whole lot more in the June issue of Self magazine.

On her daytime TV acting: "I was bad," she says, adding, "I had no idea what was going on." She said that acting and singing lessons helped her confidence.

"Remember, nobody's perfect. In Hollywood, people may seem perfect, but that's because they spend thousands on trainers and diets and surgeries. We're made to feel as if we're supposed to look like that, but it's not realistic at all. If you have a negative body image, exercise, but not for you...

Amanda Seyfried: 'Exploring Your Sexuality Is Important'

Amanda Seyfried grew up terrified of intimacy - because her "small-town" mentality made her think sex was "dirty and disgusting."

The 24-year-old Mamma Mia! star hails from a small community in Pennsylvania, where she grew up believing that being sexually active was wrong. And the actress reveals she didn't begin to adopt a more liberal attitude until she moved to the big cities of New York and Los Angeles.

She tells Britain's Stella magazine, "We have to be open-minded. I'm not saying Americans are narrow-minded - I've lived in New York and Los Angeles - but where I grew up in Allentown...

Amanda Seyfried: Another Actress Who Would Make The Perfect Vampire

Last week we pointed out that pale Michelle Trachtenberg would be perfect to star in "True Blood" or "The Vampire Diaries." We think Amanda Seyfried would be too!

She showed up to the "Mother and Child" Los Angeles premiere yesterday looking like she hasn't been out in the sun in a long time. We're all for keeping our skin healthy, but it wouldn't hurt to get a little vitamin D!

In addition, Amanda wore her Bodyamr dress backwards, causing a bit of an uproar in the fashion community.

Amanda Seyfried has shown her cheeky sense of humor - the actress has a crude slang term for female genitalia tattooed on her left foot.

The Mamma Mia! actress stunned reporters at the London premiere of her latest film Dear John by sporting the word 'minge' - a British expression for vagina - on her foot.

And the star revealed she got the naughty body-art following her role in the big-screen ABBA musical after hearing her Brit co-star Colin Firth and real-life boyfriend Dominic Cooper use the term.

She explained, "It's to make me laugh, and every time I look at it, I do."

With the movie version of Mamma Mia! a hit and the musical becoming a high-selling show around the world, ABBA is eying a return to the stage for the first time in 20 years.

The band never really announced a break-up, but they hadn't performed as ABBA since the early 80s. Now there are hints they may get back together, even if the performers prefer to remember the way it was.

In mid-March give it an other try and have a reunion tour?

The "Big Love" and "Dear John" star, who showcased her musical ability in movie-musical "Mamma Mia!," has long harbored dreams of becoming a singer/songwriter. She was delighted when Lasse Hallstrom, the director of "Dear John," asked her to bring her guitar on set to write a song for the film.

Amanda Seyfried ended her "messy" on-set affair with Dominic Cooper when she discovered he had a longtime girlfriend at home - but gave the actor another chance after he flew halfway across the world to woo her.

The pair became romantically involved while they were filming movie-musical "Mamma Mia!" even though the British actor was already in a committed relationship with girlfriend of 12 years Joanna Carolan.

Seyfried admits the "overlap" was "messy" so they parted ways and she started dating someone else - until Cooper split from his girlfriend in Britain and flew to the U.S. film set ...

The first three weeks of the summer movie season started out a bit slow, but from here the momentum really starts to build. There's a spike in the number of movies premiering with six coming out this week, two of which are sequels. One of those sequels is a movie I've been anticipating since I heard it was in development. Hint: it involves giant robots, and it's not "Transformers 2."

Opening in cinemas this week are "Terminator Salvation," "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," "Dance Flick," "Easy Virtue," "The Girlfriend Experience," and "The Boys: The Sherman Brothers...

Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I.

A Look At All The Actors Who Have Played 007

11/13/2008 10:56am EST
Quantum of Solace
This Friday, Sir Ian Fleming's James Bond is back in theaters. Daniel Craig has brought a brute anger to the role that has not quite been seen before. In the very least, as we learned in the 2006 version of Casino Royale, he certainly does not care any longer how his martini is served. Craig is under contract for one more Bond film after Quantum of Solace, but what if he does not return after that twenty-third film? What will his post Bond career look like? Let's take a look at all the actors who have played 007 -- rouge film, or not -- and what their post Bond careers looked like.

With today's release of the Coen Brothers' "Burn After Reading" we can officially declare Oscar season open.

The movie has everything that Oscar loves: big stars who are actually good actors (three of them Oscar winners), an Oscar pedigree team behind the scenes, and a release in the fall. While this broad comedy may not exactly be Oscar bait, it does serve as a good line of demarcation between films released purely for profit and those released to win awards (and mostly to make money).

Even though a large majority of awards contenders are released in the fall, there are always a...

Is 40 Box Office Poison for Women in Hollywood?

9/11/2008 9:34am EDT
Meg Ryan in The Women
Early last month Sony received word that Tom Cruise was dropping out of "Edwin A. Salt" due to similarities to Cruise's "Mission Impossible" franchise. Less than a week later, "Salt" had a new star, Angelina Jolie, and a greenlight. The script re-write began immediately in order to change the lead role to suit a female. The fastest turn around in Hollywood history had been pulled off thanks to a woman.

Power in Hollywood is defined by the ability to get a green light and bring in big bucks. And at the moment Angelina Jolie is powerful. She's also 33. Would things have been different i...
