Ashley Greene Called 'Too Fat?' Star Talks Hollywood Body Issues
Ashley Greene has been called "too fat." Insane, isn't it? According to the latest issue of Health Magazine, it's totally true. The former "Twilight" actress opened up in a new interview, talking about her career and the struggles she's had with people criticizing her physique.

"Yeah, there's always going to be pressure," Greene explains. "Anyone who doesn't feel pressure is a really good liar. You're always going to be too skinny or too fat or too muscular, and I've gotten every single one of those."

When asked outright- has she been called fat?- Greene revealed the surprising truth. "Ye...

LA Film Fest 2015 Exclusive - 'Shut In' Star Beth Riesgraf On Playing A Lethal Lady

June 15th, 2015 12:15pm EDT
LA Film Fest 2015
For those with TV savvy, you no doubt recognize the name and face of actress Beth Riesgraf. Showing up on everything from "Leverage" to "Caper" (and my favorite a small role as the gal Jason Lee faked his own death to get away from on "My Name Is Earl!"), Riesgraf has carved out quite a name for herself on the small screen. So it’s no surprise that her newest leading big screen turn in the new film called "Shut In" (which recently premiered at 'LA Film Fest 2015' and will be playing one more time on June 17th at 6pm!) is yet another home run for the talented actress. In the film Riesgraf...

Kim Kardashian On Radio: Kim Makes Appearance On NPR Radio Show
Why did Kim Kardashian agreed to be on NPR's radio show?

Kim Kardashian surprised listeners on June 13 by appearing on NPR‘s game show "Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!." Let's just say the results were a bit quizzical for the "Keeping up wtih the Kardashians" star.

Show host, Peter Sagal, asked Kardashian her about her pregnancy and the speculation surrounding her baby's gender. Kardashian's response?

“We actually haven’t told anyone the sex. So I heard that we’re having a boy. I heard that we’re having twins. I heard that I’m not even carrying my own baby. I’ve heard so many things and most ...

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick took a nasty financial loss from Bernie Madoff's 2008 Ponzi Scheme. But according to a new interview with GQ (via Fox News), the couple overcame their money woes in a very unorthodox way. They had sex!

“I don’t think there was a moment where it was like, that thing happened and then we got pissed at each other. It was sort of the opposite,” the "Footloose" actor revealed in a Q&A session on Tuesday. “We kind of went, ‘Holy s--t. Let’s... I don’t know. Let’s have sex or something. It’s free!’”
