The Mortal Instruments Cast Says “F You” To People Who Snark On Female Fandoms (And So Do We!)

It’s not always easy being a woman in a fandom. From sexual harassment at cons to the rude reaction to the Women Who Kick Ass panel at Comic-Con┬áby some male audience members last month, women are often made to feel low status in fan worlds they help shape, champion and rule. Not to mention the assertion that some women are “pretending” to be geeks for attention, or the way female-dominated fandoms are mocked and ridiculed. As a fangirl of many things myself, I know these experiences firsthand.

Rooney Mara Is The Girl … Who Sings In The Shower!

While you may think of Rooney Mara as the damaged, vengeful Lisbeth Salander from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, we see a very different, tender side of the actress in her new movie Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, which opens in select theaters this weekend. In particular, she has a very sweet scene in which she sings to her onscreen 4-year-old daughter. After seeing her take the stage with the Black Lips at last year’s Austin City Limits (for an upcoming Terrence Malick movie), we wondered if she has a music career waiting on the back burner.

What Did Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower Rewrite In The Mortal Instruments Movie?

[Alert! Alert! Spoilers ahead!]

There’s a pretty huge twist at the end of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. (Yes, people who have read the books, that thing.) When watching the movie, I noticed that while the story was the same as in the book, the characters’ reaction to the twist was different — more nuanced and emotional, if you will. Turns out stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower had a hand in making that change, quite literally. They rewrote it.

The 2013 summer blockbuster season is not even over and we are already concerned about what’s in store for 2014. Here’s why: hair.

Picture Matt Damon Letting His Daughter Drum On His Head

This is another one of those posts that probably doesn’t need words, except for me to explain that I asked Matt Damon how his daughters reacted when they saw him bald and beefy for his role in Elysium. And he obliged with this mental image of baby girl Stella drumming on her dad’s head. After all that cuteness, though, I thought it time for him to get serious and discuss the serious social issues the Neill Blomkamp movie (opening Friday) brings up.

Almost All The Times Joaquin Phoenix Smiles In Her Trailer

Joaquin Phoenix

This is so weird, guys. After that whole I’m Still Here “documentary” and even The Master, we were really used to not liking Joaquin Phoenix. To be honest, even when he was awesome as Johnny Cash, he gave us the heebie jeebies — in a good way! But it is a testament to the power of Spike Jones and a really good Yeah Yeah Yeahs song that he seems genuinely cute and likable, in an awkward loner writer way, in the trailer for Her, out this November. Just to prove my point, I screencapped almost all the times he smiles in this preview (there were some smiling and running shots I may have missed, sorry, JP).

Will Veronica Mars Follow Kristen Bell Into Motherhood?

It felt funny just typing that headline. Though my love for the pint-size P.I. from Neptune High is great, it’s hard to picture her as the warm and cuddly new mom Kristen Bell has become. It’s actually going to be quite interesting to see Bell — who’s been winning our new mama hearts by tweeting pics of her breast pump and declaring she likes her extra baby weight just fine — step back into her character’s rather prickly skin in the 2014 Veronica Mars movie. That’s why we asked VM mastermind Rob Thomas how he thought she’d do as a mother.

Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller Get Spectacular-ly Awkward In Bed

There are many ways to approach sex scenes in a coming of age movie: There’s PG fade to the next scene. There’s the super hot fantasy sequence. And then there’s the one closest to our hearts: the awesomely awkward, fumbling mix of bodies that very closely resembles our own first time. In this weekend’s entry into the teen romance genre, The Spectacular Now, Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller went with option C. Our own Kate Spencer asked why and how they made it all so, er, realistic.
