James McAvoy
James McAvoy was forced to apologize to his "Wanted" co-star Angelina Jolie after he suffered a bad bout of flatulence on-set.

The actor bulked up for his role in the 2008 action film by eating a lot of meat and drinking protein shakes, but the diet had an unpleasant side effect and he was left red-faced after breaking wind in front of the glamorous actress.

He tells TV host Graham Norton, "There was a lot of eating too much meat and drinking too much protein shake... They (producers) leave you on set shooting a scene in a car for three days... Which is fine... but eventually you have to ...

Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Considering Marriage

May 30th, 2011 10:00am EDT
Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are feeling the pressure from their children to become man and wife, despite previously insisting they would only exchange vows when same-sex marriage is legalized.

The Hollywood stars, who have been dating for six years, have continually brushed off the idea of making their romance official by heading to the altar.

In a 2006 interview with Esquire magazine, Pitt famously declared: "Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able."

But the Ocean's Eleven hunk admits they are warming to the ide...

Angelina Jolie Sizzles On Entertainment Weekly's Annual Summer Movie Preview

April 15th, 2010 11:00am EDT
Angelina Jolie EW
After kicking butt in "Tomb Raider" and taking names in "Wanted," Angelina Jolie has shown that she can play the action game just as well as Hollywood's A-list big boys. But with her latest thriller, "Salt," she may prove that she can replace them, too.

Back in the summer of 2008, Salt was a script about a CIA agent who's accused of being a Russian sleeper spy- a male Russian sleeper spy. At the time, Tom Cruise was attached to play lead. But as the script evolved into more of an on-the-run espionage thriller, Cruise began to feel that the character was a little too close to his "Mission I...

Let's face it: the movies aren't the only places that make sure their main characters are young, thin, and attractive.

So put together the badass nature of comic book heroes with the sexiest actors of today, and what do you have? The sexiest super heroes in film! Who do you think should make the list?

Whale Tale Moby Dick To Return To The Big Screen

Moby Dick
Herman Melville's epic high seas novel Moby Dick is set for a big return to the big screen. Wanted filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov has been hired to adapt a graphic novel-style screenplay written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage into a blockbuster.

Cooper tells Daily Variety the movie will have a modern feel— a world away from the 1930 original, which starred John Barrymore as Captain Ahab, and 1956 classic, starring Gregory Peck.

He says, "Our vision isn't your grandfather's Moby Dick. This is an opportunity to take a classic and capitalize on the advances in visual effects to tell ...

Is 40 Box Office Poison for Women in Hollywood?

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...

'Wanted' With Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy: An Entertaining Blockbuster

(Hollywoodchicago) – With curving, clinking and kissing bullets, “Wanted” indeed does Chicago proud. And Angelina Jolie sells it. And Morgan Freeman is ominous. And in his body of work, James McAvoy – the star of this orgasmic summer blockbuster – becomes a man.

Many Chicagoans have been keenly aware of the film’s local filming throughout downtown Chicago and Broadview, Ill.

After also focusing its filming lens throughout the Czech Republic and Hungary, Chicago’s prominence reigns surprisingly dominant and central to the film’s assassin-based plot of one “apathetic nobody...

He was the guy who took the training wheels off our bikes, let us jump off the top of the fridge when Mom wasn't looking, and the one whose admiration and respect was hard earned and beyond gratifying.

For the lucky majority, Father's Day is an opportunity to express what we usually fail to: how much the guidance of a paternal figure has touched our lives for the better. But what of the unlucky few for whom the idea of Father's Day is a kick in the ribs? Which stars won't be buying a tie, power tools or steak dinner for the old man come June 15?
