Just How Alike Are Gimme Shelter Co-Stars Vanessa Hudgens And Rosario Dawson? We Quizzed Them To Find Out!

Vanessa Hudgens does her best to erase High School Musical from our collective memory with her new role as pregnant, homeless teen Apple Bailey in Gimme ShelterIt’s a mostly uplifting story, but the darkest scenes in the film belong to Rosario Dawson as Apple’s mom, and the moments the pair are onscreen together are intense and electric.

The two play mother and daughter, share a manager and have lead surprisingly parallel careers, so we wanted to test out each actress’ knowledge about the other. We quizzed the pair during a recent interview in Los Angeles. Just how well do they know the other? Watch and learn.

Gimme Shelter opens in theaters on January 24.

Kristen Stewart’s Camp X-Ray Co-Stars Praise Her “Hardcore” Commitment, Kindness, And Sports Skills

VH1 caught up with the cast of Camp X-Ray at the Sundance Film Festival last week, which stars Kristen Stewart as a Guantanamo Bay guard who befriends an inmate, played by Payman Maadi. The film is garnering solid reviews — as is Kristen’s performance — and her co-stars gushed about everything from her commitment to developing her character to her stellar sports skills.

Ride Along Exclusive: Ice Cube Says There’s No Place For Kevin Hart In N.W.A

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are the perfect odd couple in Ride Along, which follows a bumbling wannabe police officer/gamer as he hangs with his girlfriend’s protective cop brother for a day to prove he’s worthy of her hand in marriage. Hilarity ensues (duh) and most of it stems from the on-screen chemistry of Hart and Cube, whom we should thank (along with the women of The Heat) for bringing back the buddy action-comedy in full force.

Ride Along’s Ice Cube And Kevin Hart Pick Up A Pair Of Unusual Criminals

“This ain’t the prom limo, they going to jail,” Ice Cube’s James Payton tells Kevin Hart’s Ben Barber. Well, you could have fooled Best Week Ever’s Michelle Buteau and Girl Code’s Carly Aquilino as they partied it up in the back of the Ride Along squad car. Strangely, this is not an actual scene from the movie, which opens in theaters this Friday, January 17. If you ask us, these ladies should have cameos in ALL of the movies. But enjoy their brief moment of cinematic history right here, then head over to the VH1 Tumblr for behind-the-scenes photos of the girls’ high jinks on the set.

The Official Golden Globes Cocktail Is Delicious And You Need To Make It At Home

You may not ever attend the Golden Globes, but at least you can drink like one of the stars on the red carpet! Celebs at this year’s show at the Beverly Hilton will be treated to a special cocktail – the first of its kind – called the Moët Golden Night. We were lucky enough to sample the concoction at the official menu unveiling for the show and trust us, it’s delish – and it’s got a kick!  The drink – invented by super chef Aida Mollenkamp - is easy enough to make at home and combines Moët bubbly with a pear brandy. (Like we said – delish.) She’s got the ingredients on her blog, and she breaks down the recipe with us, above. It’s the perfect thing to serve at your Golden Globes viewing party on Sunday night. Cheers!

The Complete Guide To Porn Parodies of Movies,TV, Celebrities and Politicians

View Photo Gallery

There’s porn (and sex tapes) to suit every kink and curiosity out there, especially if you happen to be a fan of erotic actors parodying your favorite TV show or movie (with a whole lot of boning thrown into the mix). From Duck Dynasty and Parks & Recreation, to classic faves like Stars Wars and The Brady Bunch – if it exists on television or film, there’s a porn version. But the best part is comparing the spoofs — and their stars — to their real-life counterparts. Some are straight-up ridiculous (just try to get through the very bizarre and NSFW clip from Edward Penishands without laughing) while others are actually humorous send-ups with some decent acting done by well-endowed lookalikes. Check out our definitive gallery of porn actors and the people they parody and see if you can you tell the original apart from their XXX counterpart.

Why The Fault In Our Stars‘ Tagline Actually Works

The Fault In Our Stars

I was 26 when my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Immediately after her diagnosis — which was Stage 4 — my brother and I quit our jobs and moved back home to help our dad as caregivers. It was a nightmarish eight months and losing my mom is still something that I struggle with now, seven years later. I tell you this so you know my background when it comes to cancer. Because The Fault in Our Stars poster dropped today on Buzzfeed, and it is beautiful and perfect and all the tears — except for the tagline: “One Sick Love Story.” It’s not sitting well with some fans. At first it didn’t sit well with me (I made this face). Then I remembered what I loved most about the book; what I thought John Green nailed perfectly (of all the things he nailed so well): the gallows humor. Read more…

We Battle Mindy Project Star Adam Pally In Operation

Adam Pally is emerging as one of the most consistently funny people on TV. He was brilliant as the venomously snarky and constantly unemployed Max on Happy Endings (R.I.P.) and is killing it as bro-doc Peter Prentice on The Mindy Project. He’s also a longtime friend, after we met doing improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC back when people had to text on flip phones. That’s why I feel pretty comfortable asking him about his farts.
