View Photo Gallery

After all that flurry of casting news, reality has finally set in: Fifty Shades Of Grey is being shot as we speak. The sexiest and steamiest read of the past few years is currently being filmed in Vancouver, and paps are already snapping exclusive photos of the actors on set. We’re getting our first glimpses of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Still the question remains: Are they hot enough to play the illicit lovers?

Are reading this from a brand-new device you got for next to nothing after standing in line overnight for the big Black Friday sales? Or, are you lazy like us and waiting for Cyber Monday? VH1 News was curious about the holiday shopping habits of the rich and famous, and asked them what they’d wait in line for, with some interesting results. GirlsZosia Mamet would do it for a unicorn (of course!). But our favorite answer came from Idris Elba.

Move Over, Katniss: 10 Sexy Movie Archers We Loved Before The Hunger Games

View Photo Gallery

It’s Hunger Games season! And with posters of Jennifer Lawrence, game-face on, staring you down, pointing her bow and arrow at you in a flourish of flames everywhere you turn, it’s hard not to succumb to the delicate mix of sexiness and feminist bravado the image evokes. It’s true that J-Law looks good doing just about anything — I challenge you to put her in a burlap sack and have her recite the dictionary and it NOT be completely endearing and compelling — but as Katniss Everdeen there’s a real magic in her archery.

Is Catching Fire The Best YA Book-To-Movie Adaptation For Grownups Of The Past 5 Years?

View Photo Gallery

As we celebrate the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this weekend, we’re reminded that it was five years ago this month that a little movie called Twilight burst onto the scene, convincing Hollywood that Harry Potter wasn’t the only game in town when it came to turning kids’ books into wildly successful movies. The numbers — and the fan mania — supported the notion that it wasn’t just kids and teens watching these flicks. Soon, it seemed like every book ever written for young adult or middle grade readers was getting optioned in hopes that they would be the next next big blockbuster franchise. Sadly, as some of this year’s disappointments have shown, you need a little more than a popular book and pretty stars to make a hit.

Black Nativity Star Jacob Latimore Will Answer Your Questions Live On Very VH1


Just who is Jacob Latimore? If you’re a young R&B fan, you might already recognize him from his days touring with Mindless Behavior and Diggy Simmons. But the rest of us are about to hear his name a whole lot more as he shares the screen with the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Tyrese Gibson and Nas in Black Nativity, which hits theaters on November 27. What’s it like to have your first big starring role at 17 in a movie with Oscar winners as your supporting cast? Well, that’s just one of the questions we have for Jacob when he stops by our Very VH1 Spreecast on Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET. You probably have plenty of your own questions too, which is why you should join us, sign in and ask him yourself.

Shailene Woodley To Michael Strahan: 12 Celebrity Tributes We’d Sponsor For The Hunger Games

View Photo Gallery

As fans of The Hunger Games know, it takes much more than muscle to be the last man/woman/child standing in the arena. It’s about cunning, adaptability and strategy, as well as good-old-fashioned survival skills. While these are not things you’d normally associate with pampered Hollywood stars, as we’re gearing up for the release of Catching Fire this weekend, we could think of a few favorite celebrities who’d do quite well in a Third Quarter Quell-style battle.

What Evan Rachel Wood Really Thinks Of Shia LaBeouf (And True Blood!)

As Disney stars gone wild go, Shia LaBeouf has been a little overshadowed lately by a certain girl formerly known as Hannah Montana, but with the release this weekend of Charlie Countryman, we were reminded of his tales of dropping acid to prepare for his role in the movie. LaBeouf plays an American visiting Bucharest, Romania, who falls in love with a beautiful cellist (Evan Rachel Wood) and gets mixed up with some dangerous mobsters (after getting slipped ecstasy, not acid, by his youth hostel roommates). When VH1 sat down with Wood this week, we asked what it’s like to play opposite a guy who’ll alter his brain to get into a scene.

Happy Birthday, Shailene Woodley! 22 Reasons She Deserves To Have A Huge Year

View Photo/Video Gallery

Some of our friends weren’t listening two years ago — when we saw Shailene Woodley dive into that pool in The Descendants and tear our hearts out in the process — that she was going to be the next big thing. Even when it was announced that she’d be in Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, there were skeptics. This year, as Shailene’s birthday falls two days after the release of the Divergent trailer, we think there are a few more believers out there. As the Secret Life of the American Teenager alumna celebrates her 22nd birthday, we thought we’d list 22 reasons she deserves to be huge this year. Apart from, you know, her massive acting talent.

The Best Man Holiday Stars: Who Is The Hottest Of Them All?

One of the keys to a good ensemble comedy is having a star to appeal to every taste — in this respect, we think The Best Man and The Best Man Holiday have succeeded quite well. The 10 leads from the sequel, in theaters on Friday, run the gamut from Morris Chestnut, for those who like manly football-player types, to Eddie Cibrian, for those who melt for a good dimple. The ladies range from seductive Melissa De Sousa to sweet Sanaa Lathan. Who is your favorite from among these beautiful people?
