Wally Mars (Bateman) is a dyed-in-the-wool pessimist. Hopelessly neurotic and unrepentantly narcissistic, he gets no joy out of life except for the time he spends with his best friend Kassie (Jennifer Aniston). However, despite the fact that Wally pines to be more than just friends with Kassie, she isn't convinced they'd make a good couple. When Kassi...

Rupert Everett Slams Jennifer Aniston's Career & Her 'Tasteless Romcom' Roles

Rupert Everett Jennifer Aniston
Outspoken actor Rupert Everett is making quick enemies of Jennifer Aniston and fellow Brit Colin Firth, branding her career choices "tasteless" and his performance in movie musical "Mamma Mia!" "career suicide."

In a BBC radio rant, the actor admits he can't understand why the two A-listers still have careers in the film industry after consistent film flops - and he used Aniston's turn in box office bombs "The Switch," "The Bounty Hunter" and "Love Happens" as a prime example.

He says, "If you look and analyze the careers of many, many stars, you'll find that they're mostly sustained by...

Juliette Lewis Stops Traffic In Lovely Lavender Dress

Juliette Lewis attended the L.A. premiere of "Due Date" in Hollywood yesterday looking quite respectable in a pretty lavender gown. We think she's looking much better than she did with the blue locks she sported at "The Switch" premiere over the summer.

The actress was involved in a hit-and-run crash earlier this month. She was heading home from a Los Angeles screening of her new film "Conviction" when another vehicle slammed into the side of the car she was a passenger in at an intersection in Burbank.

She was taken to a hospital and treated for whiplash before returning home to continu...

Kelly Brook showed off her curvy figure in a lacy black dress and red peeptoe heels at the "Piranha 3D" premiere in France yesterday. In the film she plays a porn star who gets chomped by the flesh-eating fish.

The movie has done rather well at the box office, beating off Jennifer Aniston's recent comedy "The Switch." So far it has totaled over $19 million. But not everyone is pleased with the campy horror film.

"Avatar" director James Cameron told Vanity Fair that the film is "an example of what we should not be doing in 3-D. It just cheapens the medium and reminds you of the bad 3-D ho...

Jennifer Aniston is taking extreme lengths to banish her girl-next-door image once and for all - she's set to strip, take drugs and indulge in a threesome in her next movie, according to reports.

The star's latest film "The Switch," about an unmarried woman who uses artificial insemination to have a child, was a flop earlier this month, amid scathing reviews and disappointing box office takings.

But Aniston is firing back at critics by taking up a role in Judd Apatow's "Wanderlust" opposite Paul Rudd.

The pair will play a married couple who become hippies, while Aniston's character smoke...

Jennifer Aniston is turning to her "Friends" for a career boost following her latest film flop "The Switch" - she'll appear opposite Courteney Cox in an upcoming episode of TV comedy "Cougar Town."

The actress will guest star on the show's second season premiere, which will air on September 22.

Executive producer Bill Lawrence reveals, "She's going to play Courteney's shrink, named Bonnie, who is a kinda get-too-involved-in-her-life-type of therapist."

It's the second time best pals and former co-stars Cox and Aniston have teamed since Friends ended in 2004 - Aniston also made an appeara...

Jennifer Aniston Flick 'The Switch' Is A Box Office Flop

The Switch
Jennifer Aniston's new sperm donor comedy has flopped at the box office, despite the actress' massive publicity campaign and her spat with newsman Bill O' Reilly.

O'Reilly took issue with comments Aniston made about wannabe mums seeking out donors, making her movie "The Switch" a big talking point - but even that wasn't enough to lure in film fans.

The movie, which co-stars Jason Bateman, opened with a disappointing $8.1 million and didn't even make the top five. It landed in eighth spot behind the debuts of "Twilight" spoof "Vampires Suck," "Lottery Ticket" and "Piranha 3D."

Jennifer Aniston is under attack from a disability group for using the word "retard" in a TV interview.

The actress was talking about dressing up as her heroine Barbra Streisand for the upcoming issue of Harper's Bazaar on "Live with Regis and Kelly" on Thursday when she made the slip-up.

She said, "I play dress up. I do it for a living - like a retard!"

The off-hand remark has upset officials at The Arc, a non-profit advocate for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and CEO Pete Burns has taken aim at Aniston.

He tells, "It was extraordinarily offensiv...

Jennifer Aniston Still Irritated By Bill O'Reilly Comments

Jennifer Aniston is refusing to let her feud with TV newsman Bill O'Reilly peter out, insisting what the outspoken broadcaster said about her was deeply insulting.

The actress has already responded to O'Reilly's recent on-air comments, in which he branded her "destructive to our society" for praising artificial insemination - the topic of her new film The Switch. The news anchor took aim at Aniston on his show The O'Reilly Factor earlier this month by accusing her of "diminishing the role of the dad."

He ranted, "Dads bring a psychology to children that is in this society, I believe, un...

Can Jennifer Aniston Redeem Herself With 'The Switch'?

This weekend “The Switch,” starring Jennifer Aniston, will open in theaters and if early reviews are an indicator, Aniston has yet another flop on her hands. Aniston, who was once a promising leading lady, has become a punch line for moviegoers who are as likely to expect good movies from her as they are a decent stand-up act from Carrot Top.

There was a time when Hollywood and fans expected great things from Aniston who was riding high from the success of “Friends.” Aniston’s only real quality films have been the few independent movies she did early in her career. Without argument, “The G...

Juliette Lewis attended "The Switch" premiere in Hollywood on Monday with blue hair. Is she channeling Katy Perry? And what's up with the dress? She looks like an electrician was sticking used pieces of electrical tape to her. What do you think?

Juliette stars in the movie with her new gal pal Jennifer Aniston. And in case you forgot, they are both exes of Brad Pitt.

However, Juliette insists they two didn't talk about him. She explained: "There's an obvious history we share but while we didn't share stories about Brad, we did have an instant connection and mutual affection. I love her. F...

In the upcoming film Jen plays an unmarried woman who chooses artificial insemination to have children. She has defended single women who opt to use a sperm donor to have a child, insisting there's nothing wrong with raising a family alone.

Political pundit Bill O'Reilly branded her "destructive to our society" for praising artificial insemination. Aniston responded, "Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two par...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Nanny McPhee Returns,' 'Piranha 3D' & More

Nanny McPhee
Comparing last week’s films “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and “The Expendables,” I personally prefer Edgar Wright’s comedy to Stallone’s attempt at an action spectacular. For me “Scott Pilgrim” is the perfect combination of fight scenes, video game references, rock music, and sarcastic humor. If you have not read my review of it yet, check it out here.

“The Expendables” lacks the very minimal character development I think belongs in an action movie. Giant questions remain unanswered such as who these people are, why they are friends, what they have been through together, and why the...

Jennifer Aniston has defended single women who opt to use a sperm donor to have a child, insisting there's nothing wrong with raising a family alone.

The Friends actress plays an unmarried woman who chooses artificial insemination to have children in upcoming film The Switch. Aniston has previously admitted she would consider going down the same route in real life, because she "wouldn't rule anything out" in a quest to fall pregnant.

Now, the 41-year-old star has defended single women who decide to have a baby because she doesn't agree everyone must conform to a "traditional" family.

When “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” is released on June 30, fans will be introduced to the third director to tackle an adaptation of Stephanie Meyers’ popular series of books. Director David Slade will follow in the steps of Catherine Hardwicke (“Twilight”) and Chris Weitz (“The Twilight Saga: New Moon”) to interpret the vampire love story that has led to a craze of die hard followers.

However, in Hollywood, Slade needs no introduction. In 2005, his film “Hard Candy” exploded onto the indie film scene, the catalyst being a disturbing screenplay by Brian Nelson and a startlingly strong pe...

At 41, Jennifer Aniston's age is starting to catch up with her.

When the actress recently watched the final cuts from her upcoming romantic comedy "The Switch" (out Aug. 20), "she thought she looked rough -- especially in the daytime scenes," a movie insider tells the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands now.

"She wanted them retouched further, but the studio had already spent its postproduction budget," continues the source. "The studio discussed making her foot the bill for any enhancements."

Though a rep for the star tells Us that "all films go through print adjustments, and this is no d...
