pretty woman reunion
The Today show staged an epic reunion of the cast of the beloved 1990's film "Pretty Woman" and the complete cast was brought together for the first time since filming the romantic comedy.

NBC announced the epic sit-down with a tongue-in-cheek press release which stated, "Matt Lauer sits down with actors Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Hector Elizondo, Laura San Giacomo, and director Garry Marshall for the 25th anniversary of the movie," the network said in a news release. "To miss it would be a big mistake. Big. Huge."

Julia Roberts (Vivian Ward) and Richard Gere (Edward Lewis) met up with ...

The Top 10 Greatest Movies From The 90s
You can't really think of movies of the nineties without mentioning these solid flicks of the decade. The 1994 movie "Forrest Gump" kicks off our list of the best movies from the decade that you cannot do without watching. These movies are the most quotable films of the generation.

The movie gave us the quotes "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get" and "Stupid is as stupid does."

This is a timeless classic that really solidified Tom Hanks as an actor who could carry an entire movie with little help. In fact, if you have yet to see "Forrest Gump", the...

Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall wanted to play a trick on his hard partying leading lady Julia Roberts, but the onset prank became one of the film's most famous scenes.

The scene featuring Roberts' character reacting with shock when Richard Gere closes a jewelry box on her hand is much loved by fans of the 1990 romantic comedy.

However, Marshall has revealed it was just meant to be little scene for the cast and crew as revenge for Roberts staying out late the night before the shoot.

He tells Entertainment Tonight, "(She was) a kid, so she goes out and parties, and sometimes she p...

America's leading Hindus are planning to honor actress Julia Roberts for her "steadfast devotion" to the faith, and for setting a good example to Hollywood stars.

The Pretty Woman star confessed to being a practicing Hindu two years ago after spending time in India while filming Eat, Pray, Love and scholars are impressed she's still serious about her faith.

In a recent interview, she was quoted as saying, "I've received real spiritual satisfaction through Hinduism," and confessed she's a big fan of festivals like Diwali.

The Oscar winner also spoke of returning to India, adding, "I wo...

Richard Gere's Rep Denies 'Pretty Woman' Put Down

Richard Gere
Richard Gere's publicist has lashed out at "false" reports suggesting the actor dismissed his most famous film Pretty Woman as "a silly romantic comedy."

The 1990 box office smash is one of the most successful rom-coms of all time, pulling in over $460 million at the box office, and Gere left fans stunned recently when he allegedly poured scorn on the movie, in which he played a successful businessman opposite Julia Roberts' hooker character, in a recent Australian interview.

According to Aussie magazine Woman's Day, Gere said of the film, "It's my least favorite thing. People ask me abo...

'Supernatural' 7.11 Recap: What About Bobby?

1/7/2012 7:56am EST
“Supernatural’s” winter hellatus (as the fans affectionately call it) gave me a lot of time to hypothesize where the show could go from the last moments of “Death’s Door,” where Bobby seemingly headed into the great beyond: Crowley could appear with the last-minute save like the badass King of Hell he is. Castiel could emerge from the waters of the lake, a fully redeemed angel of the Lord, and heal Bobby’s brain. He could've survived but suffered personality-altering brain damage and anemsia. Sam and Dean could have hunter’s funeral, a body burning on the pyre. It's “Supernatural” afte...

Happy 50th Birthday, Meg Ryan!

Meg Ryan
Meg Ryan might not be the star she once was when she was breaking our hearts in classic romantic comedies like "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless In Seattle," but there's no doubt she deserves her place in Hollywood history.

Nowadays, she's more famous for her private life and her romances than she is for film roles, but she has already amassed some iconic characters including orgasm-faking Sally Albright ("When Harry Met Sally"), Annie Reed ("Sleepless in Seattle"), Alice Green ("When a Man Loves a Woman") and Kathleen Kelly ("You've Got Mail").

Away from the big screen, she's a mom o...

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Frank's Pretty Woman
When we last saw the Paddy's gang, they were witnessing the miracle of birth. When we caught up with them last night, they were dumping a dead hooker in the hallway. Ah, the circle of life.

If last season's baby-centric finale left anyone with a slightly sweet feeling, Season 7 quickly veers us back into sour territory, as "Sunny" pulls out all the sick and twisted stops that we've come to expect. Things get rolling when Frank, always striving to prove himself as the most disgusting member of the group, reveals that he has big plans for his hooker girlfriend Roxy (Alanna Ubach): "I'm gon...

Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet's doomed relationship in 1997 film Titanic has earned them the title of most romantic onscreen couple of all time.

More than 500,000 people were polled for the ABC TV and People magazine movie rundown, and the stars earned almost a quarter of the votes for their turn in James Cameron's epic.

The romance between Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in 1939 classic Gone with the Wind was rated the second most romantic film pairing, while Richard Gere and Julia Roberts' unlikely coupling in Pretty Woman landed them third in the survey.

'The Bachelor' Recap: Waking Up In Vegas

The Bachelor
Last week, ABC's promo department sparked controversy on 'Bachelor' message boards and drew ire from outraged commentators who were appalled to see Emily on a date at the race track. After all, the sweet single mom had lost her race-car driving fiance in a plane crash less than a week before finding out she was pregnant with his child, and this date seemed specifically designed to exploit her grief. Is "The Bachelor" really that tasteless and insensitive? Um... this isn't exactly a revelation, is it?

Before we get to Emily's inevitable discomfort, let's rewind to the beginning of the episo...

THE BACHELOR Episode 1502
We knew Brad’s second outing as ‘The Bachelor’ was bound to become a freak show eventually, but we didn’t think it would happen this quickly – or literally. Right after move-in, Ashley the dentist scores the very first one-on-one date with Brad, and it’s (ta da!) a private carnival, complete with tents that advertise attractions like MIDGET HORSES and DADDY ISSUES.

Since he’s a changed man, the bachelor jumps right into tent #2 for some serious talk about commitment, abandonment, fear, and redemption. The date would be a total downer if not for the teddy bears, ferris wheels and wine. Lu...

Actor Richard Gere is nursing a dislocated shoulder after injuring himself while filming a fight scene for upcoming thriller The Double.

Production on the film, about the murder of a U.S. senator, has been halted for six weeks to allow the Pretty Woman actor time to recover from a stunt which went wrong. Despite his injury, Gere is adamant he wants to continue with the physical scenes instead of relying on a body double, according to his co-star Tamer Hassan.

Mary Reilly
As one of the highest paid actresses in the world, it is no surprise that Julia Roberts has a long and varied career to admire. She started out as a romantic comedy charmer, and she has done several of them even after her vast popularity, but eventually Roberts moved into more dramatic filmmaking and huge box office hits.

She was the first actress to be on the cover of Vogue, and she is undoubtedly considered one of America's Sweethearts, so much so that she actually starred in a movie of the same name! Beautiful, intelligent, well spoken, and hard working, Roberts has been in a numbe...
