How NYC Has Changed Since Phil Jackson Was Last Here

View Photo Gallery

The New York Knicks don’t look so good this NBA season but everyone in the city is holding onto hope that they can turn things around next year, and now, they certainly have reason to. Last month, Phil Jackson was appointed President of the basketball organization. That’s right, PHIL JACKSON. The legend. The icon. The guy who won 11 championship rings in his time coaching superstars like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Shaquille O’Neal, and two as a player himself…for the Knicks. But things have changed in the 36 years since Jackson was last associated with the team, and we’re not even talking about sports.

Stars like Ariana Grande and Pharrell showed up looking stunning per usual, but some of the celebs who attended may want to have a sit-down with their stylist.

Sink or Swim: The Craziest Floods in Movie History

View Photo Gallery

Everyone knows the story of Noah’s Ark. Today, the classic Biblical tale hits theaters in movie form with the Russell Crowe-helmed epic, Noah. One thing you can’t get around when it comes to this film is that there’s a lot of water in it. A LOT. And rightfully so. In the story that inspired the film, it rains for 40 days and 40 nights. We’re looking forward to seeing how it all plays out on screen, and so much of that has to be with how seriously Hollywood takes its floods. For the past few decades, a few flicks have stood above the rest in this department. Get familiar with them with our quick list of The Craziest Floods in Movie History. Then watch Noah star Emma Watson talk about being in set with all of that water in the video below.

Imagining Today’s Shia LaBeouf In His Most Beloved Roles From The Past

View Photo Gallery

Shia LaBeouf is not the child star he used to be. He’s 27 years old now. He’s starring in the sexually explicit Lars von Trier film, Nymphomaniac, which hits theaters today. Most notably, his recent bouts of eccentric behavior have placed him at the center of a near-constant controversy for the past several months. To tell the truth, we think all of it’s kind of awesome—bar fights, an ultra-meta #IAMSORRY exhibit, an I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE paper bag over his head on the red carpet. This has to be performance art, and if not, we can’t blame a rich, successful guy who’s been working in Hollywood since he was a kid for getting a little weird at some point.

Our main takeaway from this entire ordeal, though, are those clothes. Shia’s been on a heavy homeless chic wave, and we couldn’t help but imagine how odd his new appearance would look in his old films…so we went ahead and combined the two. Check out the gallery above to see how we’re Imagining Today’s Shia LaBeouf In His Most Beloved Roles From The Past and watch the video below to see what his co-star Christian Slater had to say about working with the young actor on the set of Nymphomaniac.

Whether it’s Paz de la Huerta‘s infamous fall or Chris Brown and Drake‘s infamous brawl, we’re taking a look back at a few of The Most Dramatic Celebrity Nightclub Incidents.
