Ralph Macchio, The Original Karate Kid, Has Mixed Feelings About Remake

17291450

We cling pretty tightly to our 1980′s pop culture touchstones, which is why we weren’t thrilled when we heard there would be a Karate Kid remake. Who can forget William Zabka and his thugs in the Cobra Kai, tormenting New Jersey import Daniel Larusso until it all culminated in the ultimate crane kick? It’s etched in our brain, so imagine how the original film’s star, Ralph Macchio must have felt when he learned that his role was being taken over by Jaden Smith.

Macchio was unsure about a remake, he admitted, saying “It’s like mixed feelings. At first, I felt old. Number one, you feel old when they start remaking your stuff. Once I got passed the fact that there’s a whole new generation, it was more about, ‘OK, you can retell this story because it’s a beautiful story.’” In the end, Macchio passed the the torch to Smith and attended the new flick’s premiere, but remains proud of the original film’s legacy. “We didn’t know what we were doing,” he told Access Hollywood. “We didn’t know the magic that was happening and the Pat Morita performance [as Mr. Miyagi] and all the Cobra Kai and ‘wax on, wax off’ and catching flies with your chopsticks and the crane just became part of everyone’s childhood and that’s what I’m here celebrating.” Indeed. Now excuse us while we go curl our hair to look exactly like Elisabeth Shue‘s, our most favorite 80′s teen girlfriend.

Salma Hayek Scared To Death By Snake At Interview

Turns out Salma Hayek really doesn’t like snakes. The actress and her Grown-Ups co-stars Maya Rudolph and Maria Bello were being interviewed for Extra when a “harmless but rather large snake” decided to ask for an autograph. While all the women were frightened, that’s Salma you hear screaming in horror. “[Salma] split. She’s on the next plane,” joked Maya in the aftermath, with Maria cracking “She’s in the hospital.” How long before someone exploits her primal fear in a movie?

Jennifer Aniston Gets Raunchy For A New Role

60048657

Jennifer Aniston is getting kinky in her new movie Horrible Bosses (yay?). Forget romantic comedies…  this is a much edgier role in a script that’s of the comic-murder persuasion. She’s playing – get this – a sex-obsessed dentist who likes to get hardcore raunchy.

Her character will apparently admit she’s into kinky sex, compliment a dude on his ‘package’ and will be shown breaking a nail while getting herself off! They’ve also signed on some heavy hitters for the flick including Colin FarrellJamie Foxx and Jason Bateman. The Situation – Jennifer Aniston‘s #1 fan – will probably going to be first in line for a ticket. He just admitted he has the hots for her!

FABLife’s DVD Pick Of The Week

Shutter Island

Cop Leonardo DiCaprio has one hell of an assignment. He and fellow dick Mark Ruffalo are looking for an escapee from what this thriller keeps reminding us a “mental institute … for the criminally insane.” An inconvenient hurricane keeps them stranded on the godforsaken isle, all the better to experience the asylum’s oddball staff, Gothic trappings and a Nazi or two. It’s enough to drive anyone insane, and as the flashbacks pile up, it begins to appear the DiCaprio might an agenda hidden behind his anachronistic beard. Martin Scorsese‘s adaptation of the best-seller from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River) is best not taken too seriously. The security chief of the island is, after all, played by Silence of the Lambs‘ Buffalo Bill. The director is both paying homage and giving a sly wink to the campy film noirs like Shock Corridor he grew up with.

Extras: The Blu-Ray has a “making of” featurette and a segment on 1950s mental institutions.

Willow Smith Steals Jaden’s Spotlight At Karate Kid Premiere

Jaden Smith may be the star of The Karate Kid remake (which even Arnold isn’t happy about), but Will Smith‘s son wasn’t the biggest deal at the film’s Hollywood premiere. Little sister Willow stole the spotlight thanks to a leopard print outfit complete with boots, gold chains and an even more aggressive pompadour than Janelle Monae‘s—all this before the age of 10! So when is her movie coming out? See photos of the Smith family and Jackie Chan and Ciara in the gallery below.

Sandra And Ryan Reunite To Make More Movies, Money Together

16818216

Sandra Bullock has signed on to star in her first feature film after the whole mess with her marriage to Jesse James. And apparently, Sandy’s new movie Most Wanted has her teaming up with her Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds. They’re just keeping it in the family – the flick’s written by another Proposal team player, Pete Chiarelli.

The story sounds like quite the caper. Bullock plays a criminal suspect who is forced to go on the run with her FBI agent escort (Reynolds) when they’re ambushed on their way to the courthouse. Looks like Sandy changed her mind about quitting acting. We’d definitely give any movie she’s in a watch, especially if it has Yummy Reynolds in it too.

Battle Of The Sexy Smooch: Sandra & Scarlett Vs Sandra & Meryl

In case you missed it, the 2010 MTV Movie Awards went down last night. After a bunch of F-bombs were dropped and some interesting fashion choices were displayed, we walked away from the event feeling pretty sure about a few things: we’re convinced Robert Pattinson (photos) and Kristen Stewart (photos) are totally a couple (check out 80 Robsten photos worth of proof), Tom Cruise is only tolerable as Les Grossman and Jesse James is weeping Vanilla Gorilla tears after Sandra Bullock made all of our jaws drop with her charming speech, gorgeous dress and steamy kiss with Scarlett Johansson.

Yes, Sandra and Scarlett swapped spit onstage, but that’s not the first time Sandra has shared the stage and her lips with another beautiful actress. Earlier this year, Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep kissed in an unforgettable moment at the 2010 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. We want to know which kiss you think was hotter! Sandra and Scarlett’s sensual peck or Sandra and Meryl’s open mouthed kiss?

Watch Sandra and Meryl’s surprise smooch from the CCMAs now.

80 Signs That Robsten Is Real

robsten-mma

Robert Pattinson (photos) and Kristen Stewart (photos) pretty much confirmed what we all already knew (and hoped) at the MTV Movie Awards tonight. There’s no way they’re not dating. Throughout the show, Rob and Kristen were leaned towards each other, sharing glances and giggling. When Kristen won “Best Female Performance,” Rob hoot and hollered as her named was called, she touched his stomach as she passed, and he checked out her bum as she strolled to the stage. Once she accepted her award and gave a trademark awkward speech laden with thumbs-up, he looked on with twinkly eyes and an adoring smile. Swoon.

Then, there was their “Best Kiss” acceptance shenanigans. Though the secret couple’s plan may have been to tease us for the second year in a row, Rob could not resist stealing a smooch. We’re unconvinced the kiss was scripted, as Kristen seemed legitimately surprised and peeved, while Rob looked far too pleased with himself. Note that his tongue even came out to do a victory lap.

Still skeptic? Here are 80 pieces of photographic evidence that Robsten (photos) is more than just every Twi-hard’s fantasy. [Photos: TheFABLife, Getty Images]

10 WTF Fashion Moments From The 2010 MTV Movie Awards

wtf

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards included some style highlights (Kristen Stewart‘s D&G mini, Sandra Bullock‘s mile-high Louboutins, Whitney Port‘s Yigal Azrouël yellow dress), but for every perfect 10, a belly flop lurked within arm’s reach. What was Katy Perry thinking?! Who let Lindsay Lohan out of the house? And would the real Christina Aguilera please stand up?! Here are our Top 10 WTF fashion moments from the star-filled evening.

10. Katy Perry

katy_perry

Offense #1: Katy Perry’s bright blue wig clashes with her bright yellow nails. Add hundreds of shiny rhinestones to the equation and you get something resembling a human sparkler.

Plus Side: She still looks hot!

9. Snowboarder Shaun White

shaun_white

Offense #1: We know the 60s and 70s are in style, but do we really want to see man nipple on our MTV Movie Awards red carpet? Leave the bare-chested vest to the gang members of 1979′s The Warriors.

Offense #2: We respect that Shaun’s hair has become iconic, but it was iconic for Robert Plant too

Plus Side: We’d like Shaun’s vest if there were a shirt underneath it.

10 Best Dressed Celebs At The MTV Movie Awards

60662071

People are known to take fashion risks at the MTV Movie Awards because unlike other award shows, anything goes. That means you’re just as likely to see glamourous gowns as you are assless chaps (or an assless tiger-print leotard if you’re Ken Jeong). Still, there are some celebrities who know how to combine their version of cool with some serious style, and unfortunately, Ken didn’t make our cut. But Sandra Bullock, Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart did. Check out their dresses and some other winning styles in our Best-Dressed Gallery below. [Photos: Getty Images]
