Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton Are Doing Great and 15 Things We Learned from Her Reddit AMA

Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie — star of the new VH1 show, Candidly Nicole — delighted fans on Thursday when she sat down to answer just about anything during a Reddit AMA. The online Q&A series is notorious for connecting fans directly to their favorite stars and getting those unexpected (and candid) answers. Richie proved to be no different, taking on questions about her former BFF and The Simple Life co-star Paris Hilton (“It’s been great“), her father Lionel, and all things Britney Spears. (There were a lot of questions about Ms. Spears.)

We never expected to learn so much about the reality star but we’re happy we did.

Who Said It: Kate Hudson or Katy Hudson?

katehudsonmain

Ahead of the release of Kate Hudson’s new film, Wish I Was Here, we wanted to put her fans to the test to find out just how well they know the starlet’s films. The actress has starred in a number of rom-coms that have Hudson being chased by hot leading men and looking for love in all the wrong places — or right, depending on the outcome. While entertaining, they can be formulaic at times, with lines that sound like a Katy Hudson — err Perry — lyric. In the past, we’ve broken down the singer’s cliches and we realized that they were pretty similar to something Hudson would say on screen.

With that in mind, it’s time to figure out who said it: Kate Hudson or Katy Hudson? In the quiz, we pulled out lyrics from some of Perry’s biggest hits and put them up against Hudson’s most quotable lines. Can you determine just exactly who said it?

15 Years Later: Looking Back on Vanity Fair‘s Young Hollywood

younghollywoodmain

In Hollywood, there’s always a battle for attention. The legends and icons are forced to fend off the pretty young things that pop up every year. But sometimes, a generation of starlets and studs are more than just pretty faces — they are the new Hollywood. They transform into talented, award-winning actors who take over both the big and small screen. They include the likes of Jonah Hill, Carey Mulligan, Emma Watson and Shailene Woodley, all of who have been featured in Vanity Fair’s Young Hollywood series.

While there have been a number of hits featured in the magazine of the years, there have also been a number of misses — Vinessa Shaw and Sarah Wynter anyone? Like them, we want to know where they are all now.

Starting with 1999 — the unofficial “Young Hollywood” issue — we look back on the hottest, youngest, brightest, freshest faces of the past 15 years.

Exclusive: Watch Never-Before-Seen Deleted Scenes From Veep

veepmain

If there’s one thing we don’t like about HBO’s hit series Veep is that it’s currently off the air. After a hilarious and sharp-tongued ten episodes, the season three finale left fans clamoring for more as Vice President Selina Meyer—played by Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus—embarked on the next step in her presidential career. How she got there was an amazing journey involving Iowa campaign stops, visits to London, sex with a very steamy Christopher Meloni, penning (or not penning) a new book, and sparring with the other presidential candidates.

As a special bonus, VH1 has exclusive deleted scenes only available to fans who purchase the digital copy of the series when it becomes available on iTunes and Google Play on July 7. Read more…

View Photo Gallery

It’s hard to believe it—but yes—the year is halfway over. It’s been a busy six months that have served up amazing moments in pop culture from that elevator fight to the most shocking death on TV. But today, we’re focused on the best of the big screen.

This year has been an interesting one for movies following a spectacular 2013. The beginning of the year kicked off in a big way with several major box office wins. The Lego Movie surprised many with its pop culture reference-filled animated delight while Captain America sequel proved that Chris Evans is the top Avenger. The Rover forced us to rethink everything we thought about Robert Pattinson and Chef never made us more hungry for that “upgrade to a large popcorn for 50 cents more.”

10 Things You Need To Know About Justin Theroux That Doesn’t Involve Jennifer Aniston

View Photo Gallery

On Sunday, Justin Theroux returns to the small screen with his starring role in HBO’s The Leftovers as Kevin Garvey, the police chief in the suburban community coping with life after the rapture. Theroux, who has starred in a number of movies and appeared on popular shows, such as Six Feet Under, has recently become most famous for being Jennifer Aniston’s boyfriend. That’s why his return to TV is so exciting.

The role is his first on screen appearance since 2012′s Wanderlust, which co-starred you’ll never guess who. While the film was a mild success, it didn’t showcase the many talents of Theroux, which are often overshadowed by his relationship with Aniston. Are they getting married? Is she pregnant? Is Theroux better than John Mayer? Does he have cold feet? Does she? Frankly, we don’t care because we are excited about the man that appears on screen but also does a lot behind the scenes, including writing and directing the sequel to the cult-classic, Zoolander. How is that for unexpected?

So click through the gallery above to enjoy looking at, while learning a little bit about Theroux. Trust us, there’s more to him than being Mr. Aniston.

Tilda Swinton Wears A Shoe On Her Head And Other Things To Know About Snowpiercer

snowpiercermain

Starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer and Ed Harris, Snowpiercer tells the story of a dystopian future when climate change have lay wasted to what remains of Earth. The planet is covered in a deadly permafrost brought on by man’s attempts to reverse years of the planet’s atmospheric destruction. The film is a mouthful of an allegory that will likely become a cult classic than make billions this weekend at the box office. It’s not to say the film is bad — it’s not for everyone — it’s just not your typical blockbuster affair. Fans of Oldboy and Sunshine (also starring Evans), will enjoy the mix of sci-fi, action, and gore presented in Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s film adaption of the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. Oh yeah, and Tilda Swinton wears a shoe on her head! But that’s just one of the things you should know going into the film.

What Are The Most Successful Films From Your Favorite Trilogies?

View Photo Gallery

As it happens every summer, the blockbuster season is filled with film franchises returning to theaters with a new installment. While some franchises testing the waters with sequels — 21 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon both released follow ups in June — The Expendables is stepping into trilogy territory. Later this summer, the film will debut its threequel in theaters. But the question is, will it push forward with a fourth (Transformers) or seventh (Fast and Furious), or just stick with three?

The famed trilogy has worked out for a number of franchises, from the planned (Star Wars) to the “let’s just do it for fun” (Ocean’s). But how successful were all three films? While fans covet all three Star Wars films, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi both made over $100 million less than A New Hope at the box office. However it’s not the case for every franchise. We examined some of movie’s most beloved trilogies to figure out what was the peak installment.

Everywhere You’ve Seen The Cast Of Orange Is The New Black Before

View Photo Gallery

One of the biggest shows (not) on TV right now has to be Orange Is the New Black. When the show returned with season 2 on June 6 all anyone could do was discuss the show and try not to spoil the Netflix series for each other. Thanks to the marathon appeal of the show, it’s easy to watch the entire series in one long weekend. But if there’s one complaint about the series — though not a serious one — is its large cast, which includes Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon and Jason Biggs, that are sometimes hard to keep track of. While there are a number of newcomers on the show (Danielle Brooks, Yael Stone), the show boasts a huge roster of talent that has made its mark in Hollywood. From Star Trek: Voyager to Sister Act, these ladies in orange have appeared in just about everything that you loved and watched before, leaving you to ponder, “Where have I seen her before?”

10 Unexpected Long-Running Film Franchises

franchisesmain

As we roll into another summer movie season, we are face another onslaught of sequels, prequels, threequels seventh-quels. (Seriously, is there a good quel name for any edition higher than three?) The summer X-Men marks its seventh entry with X-Men: Days of Future Past, Transformers adds a fourth with Transformers: Age of Extinction, and The Expendables moves into trilogy territory with its third film. Then previous hits, 21 Jump Street, How to Train Your Dragon, Sin City, Think Like a Man, return with sequels, putting them in position for franchise territory.

While it’s no surprise that studios push franchise films. They are easy money with a guaranteed audience, almost-certain box office win and tons of merchandising buy-ins. However, it’s always a surprise when a film transitions from a standalone project into a series that runs past its concept or believability. For instance, who would have thought there’d be seven successful The Fast and the Furious entries let alone the original one to hit the big screen? But that series is not Hollywood’s only unexpected long-running franchise.
