Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys
Mother of Dragons Emilia Clarke, known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on "Game Of Thrones," is hitting the big screen this summer in "Terminator Genysis." She plays Sarah Connor.

Co-star Arnold Schwazenegger, who is reprising his role 30 years after the original premiered, said Clarke was very "dedicated" during filming.

"It's pretty tough to live up to this kind of part, but she did a fantastic job, especially with the handling of the weapons in the fight scenes," he told People.

But it wasn't as easy as it looked. Clarke, 28, struggled with a grenade launcher. "It was, like, 70 lbs...

Margot Robbie and Will Smith were spotted filming next summer's Suicide Squad in Toronto over the weekend.

The two stars, who also hit the big screen together earlier this year in Focus, shot a scene in a simulated rainstorm, and it looks as if Smith's character, Deadshot, has come to the aid of a distressed-looking Harley Quinn (Robbie) as both have been bloodied.

The Australian actress was even spotted in between takes with an umbrella to keep her dry as she sat atop a BMW during the 4:00am shoot early Saturday morning.

Robbie ended up soaking wet from head to toe, with her pink bra vi...

If you look hard enough, you can see passed the designer duds, diva behavior, and bowing to outer beauty to glean some good advice on how to survive in the workplace.

1. Physically -- And Mentally -- Show Up For Work

“I think I could do a really good job as your assist,” said “Andy Sachs” (Anne Hathaway), when she got her five m...
