10+ Things Julia Stiles Hates About Heath Ledger

10thingsmain

In 1999, Touchstone Pictures released a modern re-telling of Taming With The Shrew starring two relative unknowns, Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. In 10 Things I Hate About You, Ledger played Patrick Verona, a brooding rebel with an Australian accent and romantic interest to Stiles’s Katarina “Kat” Stratford. Stiles’s character was also a rebel, who found in Riot Grrl music and Sylvia Plath novels, at least until she met Patrick. The two characters played unsuspecting romantic pawns in Kat’s younger sister’s ploy to date and find love, until it was Patrick and Kat that found each other. By the end of the romantic comedy, after all the romance and love loss, Kat was tasked with rewriting Shakespeare’s Sonnet 141. Having finally understood heartbreak, Kat lashed out through rhyme. While the movie may have suggested there were ten things she hated about Ledger’s character, Patrick there were, in fact, 14 items. But honestly, none of them were really true.

On the 15th anniversary of the film’s theatrical release, we wanted to remember that pivotal and heartbreaking scene, while enjoying the first time we all fell in love with Heath Ledger.

Billy On The Streep: Billy Eichner Tests His Meryl Streep Knowledge

If there’s one thing fans know about game show host and comedian, Billy Eichner, it’s that he’s a huge Meryl Streep fan. He’s gone on record about just how amazing she is, sat two feet away from her when she was guest on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and even getting into a screaming match with one of his contestants over who was better: Meryl Streep or Glenn Close. Needless to say, that kind of fandom means Eichner must know a lot about the Oscar-winning actress. While at PaleyFest 2014 for the Parks and Recreation chat with Retta and his other co-stars, VH1′s Kate Spencer put Eichner on the spot in what we like to to call “Billy on the Streep.”

View Photo Gallery

Ahead of the release of The Single Moms Club, a film written, directed, produced by and starring Tyler Perry, we thought it was worthwhile looking back on all the Tyler Perry Productions (TPP) that came before it. In total, Perry has produced 16 films (including SMC) from the ongoing Madea franchise to stand-alones, such as Temptation and Why Did I Get Married? All of the films have been met with varying degrees of praise and success. But who has actually sat down and watched all of them? Inspired by that question, I decided to review all of Perry’s film in order to grade and rank each film.

To see how they fall in order (from worst to best), flip through the gallery above. For a more in-depth, critical analysis keep on reading!

Who’s The Baddest B*tch? Gorgo Of 300 Versus Cersei Of Game Of Thrones

lenaheadey

By now, everyone knows Lena Headey for her two onscreen personas: Queen Gorgo of the 300 franchise and Cersei Lannister of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Both are tough female characters that has Headey swinging swords, lashing tongues, and tempting men but ultimately one is the badder bitch.

On one hand you have Cersei Lannister. Headey’s character on HBO’s Game of Thrones is the former queen of King’s Landing. She’s ruthless, ill-tempered, full of pride and lives on a diet of wine and bitter contempt for those less fortunate than her. Then there’s Gorgo from 300. The queen of Sparta, now a widow, is a fierce leader with little regard for the city-states in Greece. Her main focus is maintaining the spirit of her former king and husband, Xerxes.

Ahead of the premiere of 300: Rise of an Empire, we ask Headey to pick who is tougher, sexier and would win in a fight.

Grading Lindsay Lohan’s Comeback Attempts

Lindsay Lohan Court Appearance

Ahead of the premiere of Lindsay Lohan‘s new docu-reality series, we wanted to take a closer look at her career (and personal) recovery. While most view the time around the release of I Know Who Killed Me as her big breakdown moment, troubles for the actress started shortly after the success of Mean Girls. Lohan was under a microscope. After collapsing during the making of Herbie: Fully Loaded and getting into a string of car accidents, her her star started to diminish. Suddenly everyone was wondering if she was worth the effort or even all the unwanted attention. Since then, Lohan has been struggling to bounce back and erase any memory of the past decade with a series of comeback attempts.
