James Franco Doesn't Like Being Blamed For 'Your Highness' Flop

7/12/2011 8:19am EDT
Your Highness
James Franco insists he was unfairly targeted by critics who savaged his post-Oscars movie Your Highness - just because it was a bad film.

The actor teamed up with Oscar-winner Natalie Portman and funnyman Danny McBride for the wacky period movie - but he was the one who critics took aim at when the film flopped at the box office.

And he insists he was an easy target after becoming known as the workaholic overachiever who co-hosted the worst Academy Awards ever.

He says, "I didn't write that movie. I was just doing my job. I think I'm fine in it. They knew there were problems with that m...

Smarter Than The Average Movie Star Natalie Portman Turns 30

“I'd rather be smart than a movie star,” Natalie Portman once said. ...Turns out she’s both.

The young actress has always been a fascinating contradiction. Youthful in appearance, yet always so mature in her choices, her acting and her lifestyle. A child star who was never childish, (even at just 12 years of age in Leon), she has a natural maturity far beyond any of her peers. Which is why she’s lasted where others have crashed and burned.

Discovered by an agent in a pizza parlour at the age of 11, Portman was being groomed for a modelling career before deciding she’d rather pursue acting...

Natalie Portman has cleared up rumors suggesting she stripped for a swimming scene in new film Your Highness, insisting it was too cold for her to take a dip naked.

The Black Swan star appears naked from behind in the titillating scene - but she has revealed a body double was the one baring her behind.

She explains, "There's one shot that's me and the shot of her diving into the water is a body double, because I didn't wanna go in the water - it was really, really cold."

The scene hit the headlines recently after producers were forced to cover the naked body double up for the film's trai...

Pregnant Natalie Portman is keen to distance herself from reports she likes smoking marijuana, insisting she loves stoner comedies, but no longer gets high.

The Oscar winner stars in new pot comedy "Your Highness" opposite James Franco and Danny McBride, but she doesn't want fans to think she's a stoner.

She tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "I love stoner comedies. I smoked weed in college, but I haven't smoked in years. I'm too old. I wish I was that cool, but I'm like an old lady now. I'm in bed by 10 p.m. I can't do that anymore."

In addition to these goofy pictures, you’ll have the chance to catch the action thriller “Hanna,” the nature documentary “Born to Be Wild,” the inspirational tale “Soul Surfer,” the gritty Western “Meek’s Cutoff,” and the romantic comedy “Ceremony.”

Natalie Portman's bottom has been covered up in the trailer for her new movie Your Highness - so the teaser can screen for under-18s.

The actress appears in a thong in the R-rated trailer but studio bosses feared the butt-baring scene would be too much for censors, so they've toned it down - and painted on panties.

Editors at have exposed the truth by airing both scenes online.

A source close to the production tells the website, "The scene was altered so the MPAA would approve the trailer for screening for appropriate audiences in theatres."

Natalie Portman: The Best Actress Of Her Generation?

10/1/2010 10:10am EDT

Since her intense breakout role in 1994’s “The Professional,” Natalie Portman has been one of the most respected and versatile actors working in Hollywood. Her filmography spans over 15 years but is as impressive and solid as Audrey Hepburn’s or Meryl Streep’s, two actresses to whom she has rightfully been compared.

It makes sense that Portman has become one of the most talented performers in Hollywood considering the amazing list of directors with whom she’s worked:

Luc Besson (“The Professional”)

Michael Mann (“Heat”)

Ted Demme (“Beautiful Girls”)

Woody Allen (“Everyone Says I Love Y...

Natalie Portman's Pink Crocheted Dress - Hot Or Not?

6/11/2010 1:49pm EDT
Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman recently attended an event honoring director Mike Nichols in a strapless pink crocheted dress. The star usually looks great on the red carpet, but we're not particularly fond of this pastel creation. What do you think?

The actress has several projects in production, including "Love and Other Impossible Pursuits" about a woman who is put through the ringer by her stepson; "Black Swan," which focuses on a feud between two ballerinas; "Your Highness," which follows two princes as they head out on a journey to save their king; "Thor," a big-budget adventure that chronicles the ...
