10 Of The Most Beautiful Hollywood Movie Locales (That You Can A
Movies both stun and captivate audiences with beautiful locations. We've often times been told that the places we see or are brought to in movies are fake or some sort of fantasy, and that few places in real life will ever live up the expectations of Hollywood movies.

We're here to tell you that not ONLY is that not true - that places that REALLY exist are not only just as beautiful as the places we see in movies, in some cases, they are more so. So take a look at the ten most beautiful locales from movies that someday, you might want to visit.

Happy 50th Birthday, Meg Ryan!

November 19th, 2011 12:00pm EST
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...

How Ryan Gosling Resurrected The Movie Star

September 14th, 2011 11:00am EDT
gosling
Movie critics, driven to understandable cynicism by the onslaught of unnecessary remakes (there is no reason for another "Footloose") and re-imaginings of every superhero from the Green Lantern to a hammer-wielding Norse god, have declared the movie star extinct.  I think the stellar year actor Ryan Gosling, 30, is having is inspiring proof that the existence of the movie star in this entertainment climate is still possible. 

For this lover of pop culture, a movie star is more than someone who makes a lot of films and walks a lot of red carpets.  It’s Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman,” “Th...

Meg Ryan 'Just Friends' With Tim Robbins

May 27th, 2010 8:43am EDT
Meg Ryan
A representative for Meg Ryan has dismissed rumors the actress has embarked on a romance with newly-single Tim Robbins - insisting the stars are just "great friends".

Robbins split from his long-term partner, Susan Sarandon, in 2009 after 23 years together. The actress has since been linked to her ping-pong club business partner, Jonathan Bricklin, although she denied they are romantically involved.

Robbins has now been hit with rumors of a new relationship with Ryan after they were seen together in California twice last week, but a representative for the Sleepless in Seattle star is ad...

Is 40 Box Office Poison for Women in Hollywood?

September 11th, 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...

Biggest Box Office Flops

August 5th, 2008 9:26am EDT
Cutthroat Island
Movies tank all of the time. Just last weekend the new X-Files movie only managed to make a few dozen live chickens at the box office. Still that's not too bad, not really. Gillian Anderson might have some trouble getting work, but she's probably happy knowing that people still recognize her name. Some movies get a lot of press for their poor performances. Sure, Jessica Simpson's "Blonde Ambition" made about what The Dark Knight makes in an hour-but even that stinker wasn't a huge loss, not really. A genuine box office disaster is something special. The Anti-Dark Knight. Movies that bombard...

Buy Your Own Brunch! Celeb's Moms Who Won't Be Getting The Royal Treatment This Mother's Day

May 9th, 2008 2:40pm EDT
Mommie Dearest
Ah, Mother. It's a noun that traditionally conjures up the warm 'n' fuzzies, instigates fights ("Don't you talk about my mama!), drives the most hardened man to tears and inspires tattoos proclaiming everlasting love.

For the lucky majority, Mother's Day is an opportunity to express what we usually fail to: How much the unconditional love, support and guidance of a maternal figure has touched our lives for the better. But what of the unlucky few for whom the idea of Mother's Day is sheer anathema? Which stars won't be buying a card, let alone brunch for Mommie Dearest come May 11?

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT
Clueless
There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

Classic Tearjerking Movies

December 26th, 2007 3:55pm EST
The Notebook
The classic tearjerker movie. Many of us watch them with a diet coke in one hand and a box of Kleenex in the other. Whether it's a sappy Lifetime movie or an old classic romance, we enjoy watching them even though they make us weep like little babies. Some won't admit to tearing up, while others put the blame on "allergies" or use other excuses.

It's pretty hard to keep this list short, or maybe it's just because here at Starpulse we get a little sappy when it comes to this type of film. We somehow managed. Get out the box of Kleenex because you may need them.
