Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore was full of confidence when she took charge on her directorial debut Whip It - because she has been "training" to become a filmmaker since she was six years old.

The actress has been producing films for the last decade since her hit 1999 movie Never Been Kissed, but stepped behind the camera for the first time to work on the 2009 comedy And although Barrymore saw helming a movie as "new territory," she's convinced her work as a kid with her godfather Steven Spielberg stood her in good stead to successfully direct.

She tells the Press Association, "I handled my godfather's...

It's called by many names in cinema, but the big high school dance, the one where Cinderellas step out in glass slippers and the ugly ducklings start singing their swan songs, is generally known as Prom. They take place everywhere from gymnasiums to four-star hotels, but frequently end in drunkenness and frustrated hopes of losing one's virginity. Here are few examples of Prom Nights that give high school juniors and seniors everywhere unrealistic expectations, and what you can learn from them:

Our Favorite High School Movies

The Breakfast Club
Perhaps you've heard about "Assassination of a High School President," the Bruce Willis/Mischa Barton movie that darkly satirizes high school politics. While much of the high school set is eagerly anticipating the film's theatrical release in early 2009, early reviews from its January screening at Sundance have been mixed. MTV has praised it as a cross between "Rushmore" and "The Usual Suspects," while Variety labeled it an "uninventive," "muddled parody." Only time will tell if the movie becomes an instant classic or ends up in the bargain DVD bin next to "Encino Man."

There has been...

Drew in 50 First Dates
There is perhaps no greater polarizing figure in the film world than Drew Barrymore. Very few waffle on Drew Barrymore's ability as an actress - you either love or hate her.

Some are entranced by the starlet's positive attitude and sunny demeanor. Others see that personality as a perfect compliment to her blonde hair. (Personally, we're pro-Drew, for who can hate a genuine sweetheart)? Either way, no one can deny that the actress has engaged her audience her entire life - from childhood celebrity to teenage addict to serial bride to nude poser. All the while, and quite amazingly, Barr...

Jessica Alba
LOS ANGELES (AP) - In her latest movie, Jessica Alba falls into a penguin pond, stabs Dane Cook with a dental tool and accidentally tears off her skirt by closing it in a car door.

The role represents a departure for Alba, who gained fame as an action star - first on TV's ''Dark Angel,'' then in films such as ''Fantastic Four'' and ''Sin City.''
