Forbes editors looked at income from film roles in addition to money that stars might have earned from perfume deals, clothing lines and ad campaigns.

Sandra Bullock's Miss Congeniality co-star William Shatner has expressed his sympathy for the actress' estranged husband Jesse James - insisting the TV mechanic is "in a terrible emotional state."

Bullock recently announced she has filed for divorce, and is intending to raise the couple's newly-adopted son, Louis, by herself.

Shatner, who is friends with the former couple, admits the publicity surrounding the scandal has taken its toll on James, who ch...

The Miss Congeniality actress received a standing ovation as she took the stage to pick up her Razzie - the first Worst Actress recipient to attend the show since Halle Berry was shamed for her role in Catwoman in 20...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Avatar,' 'Nine' & More

AVATAR
Last week I had a chance to catch "Invictus," director Clint Eastwood's latest effort. A lot of early buzz suggests the film should be a Best Picture contender at the Academy Awards, but I personally wasn't too impressed.

While "Invictus" isn't a terrible movie, it certainly isn't Eastwood's best. In many ways it just feels forced because the film tries too hard to send an inspirational message.

Eastwood explores a number of subplots that he never fully fleshes out, and he fails to establish the proper dramatic tension that makes a sports picture so powerful. As an audience member ...

Sandra Bullock has been America's sweetheart with lovable romances like While You Were Sleeping and Miss Congeniality. Now she reveals that it's all an act. "I'm a good actress," she said. "That's why you know me as likable."

Land of the Lost
I'm ashamed to say I still haven't gotten a chance to see "Terminator Salvation," but it's my top priority to see it this week. I also need to get out and see "Drag Me to Hell," because I continue to hear nothing but good things about it.

This week is a big week for comedies, with four premiering. We have "Land of the Lost," "Away We Go," "The Hangover," and "My Life in Ruins." I'm very excited because I will be seeing an advanced screening of "The Hangover." I have high hopes that it will be very funny, but I'll let you know what I think after I see it.

Sandra Bullock has confessed she assumed her husband was a homophobic "killer" before she met him. The Miss Congeniality star says she had preconceived ideas about tattooed Monster Garage host Jesse James - who she married in 2005 - before she took her godson to meet him at his motorcycle shop.

Sandra told InStyle magazine: "I assumed he was a homophobic chauvinist, a bigot who kills people. And later I felt saddened by my assumptions because I wondered how many times I had written off people who truly were real."

The 42-year-old actress also admitted she likes to go to fashion sh...
