Divergent Stars, Director Get The Comic-Con Giggles


Right after they debuted the first footage from their movie over in Hall H, we were super excited to talk to Divergent stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James, along with director Neil Burger and author Veronica Roth. Little did we know they were delightfully punch drunk after a big day at Comic-Con. A simple question about the fandom wound up in Burger being reduced to tears. “They call themselves Initiates,” Roth began as the laughter continued. We’ll give you more of the real answer in the morning, but this was too cute to wait on.

Ryan Reynolds Clues Us In On His Secret Hobby


Ryan Reynolds is a man if many talents onscreen: How else could he go from Van Wilder to Buried, Fifteen to The Proposal. But when we saw the beautiful photography book his R.I.P.D. co-star Jeff Bridges made on the set of the weird afterlife buddy cop flick, we wondered, does Ryan also have some kind of side career waiting in the wings?

Ryan Reynolds

“I love to write, but I don’t publish, he told VH1 earlier this week. “I write some memoir stuff that’s not necessarily true. It’s expanded versions of kernels of truth that happened when I was young. I have three older brothers, and each one of them is uniquely bizarre in their own way. They’re a wellspring of great stories.”

Hey, this seems like something more than a little hobby. Look out, David Sedaris.

“It sounds like there’s a script there, man,” Bridges commented.

Ooh, and if he added some “expanded” versions of stories about his love life, we’d definitely be hooked!

20 Classic Cartoon Characters You Didn’t Know Were Voiced By Celebrities

Surprising Cartoon Voices

When we were kids, we assumed that cartoons characters were human beings just like the rest of us. Sure, a little more vibrantly hued, and inexplicably able to survive large falls and 1000-ton weights being dropped on their heads, but nothing too out of the ordinary. As a result, it never really occurred to us that some of our beloved childhood cartoon favorites were actually voiced by super famous celebrities!

10 Life Lessons Natasha Lyonne Taught Us

Life Lessons Natasha Lyonne Taught Us

After becoming something of a cult teen princess, Natasha Lyonne sort of disappeared. (Sadly, we know it was more to do with personal problems than lack of work.) However, the actress is back in a big way with two new movies, G.B.F. and Girl Most Likely,  and the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. And now that her career has come full circle (with her playing a teacher in the teen comedy, G.B.F.), it’s time to look back on all the life lessons Lyonne taught us growing up.

meloniediaz2

The Oscar race has officially begun! Since it premiered at Sundance, critics having been raving about Fruitvale Station and its stars, Michael B. Jordan, Octavia Spencer and Melonie Diaz.

The film tells the true story of Oscar Grant on the day before he was murdered by police at a San Francisco train station in 2009. “Indie darling” Melonie Diaz (Be Kind Rewind, Lords of Dogtown, Raising Victor Vargas) gives a beautiful and heartbreaking performance as Oscar’s girlfriend and the mother of his daughter.

We got a chance to sit down with Diaz (who, it was just announced, will soon be appearing on season three of Girls) about the film, attending a performing arts high school, and being in a Mary J. Blige music video.

Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot! 15 Movies That Take Place In A Heat Wave

15 Movies With Heatwaves

Here on the East Coast, the Smash Mouth cut “Walking on the Sun” has been our personal anthem for the past week. Yes, it is HOT. Summer in the city (or anywhere) can be pretty grueling, especially when sweaty shirtless guys get shoved up against us on a crowded subway. If you can’t stand the heat, it seems like the best method is to just stay in a dark, air-conditioned room and watch movies!
