Did you read Eat, Pray, Love? We did – twice – and each time we curled up in the fetal position and wept, cursing our mundane Bali-less lives. After nursing ourselves out of the E,P,L coma with daily doses of Oprah and frozen Lean Cuisines, we’ve once again fallen victim to Elizabeth Gilbert‘s autobiography, only this time it’s come to life in the form of Julia Robert‘s massive mouth.
Yes, the trailer for the movie version of the bestselling book is here, and it’s jam packed with, well, what you’d expect: eating, praying and a whole lotta loving, with help from James Franco and Javier Bardem. Our tears also make a cameo. [via ONTD]
Kristen Stewartand Dakota Fanning have good news for the citizens of America: The days of no talent attention whores running the entertainment world with their DUIs and vag flashes are over. The stunning actresses – who possess both talent and brains! – walked the red carpet together at the Runaways premiere, exhibiting the kind of hotness normally only found in movies where the nerd girl gets made over into beauty queen as part of some sort of dare.
But their shield of PG-13 sexiness could do nothing to prevent cloud of crazy Kirstie Alley from raining on their parade. The soon-to-be reality star and all around crazy lady showed up in clothes borrowed from a high school English Lit teacher. For the love of Xenu, why the hell was she there?
While both Kristen and Dakota looked drop-dead, each young starlet certainly has their own style. KStew went for a leggy glam rock look, while Dakota was shimmery n’ sweet. Whose look do you prefer?

Remember Me, Robert Pattinson? How could we ever forget you? Even if you never top Twilight at the box office, you’ll always be the British dreamboat who could not keep his hand out of his hair on red carpets in the late ’00s and early ’10s. Pattinson stuck true to form at the London premiere of Remember Me earlier today, signing pictures, posing with co-star Emilie de Ravin, playing with his wild locks and giving us the wry, knowing stares so many rely on to get them through the day, like a sexy “hang in there” cat poster. No, RPattz, you shouldn’t worry about being forgotten.
While we think it’s great Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone came out to support the 32nd Annual New York City Police Foundation Gala last night, we’re more than a little surprised the boys in blue wanted to bring these two back together for their fundraiser. In case you’ve forgotten, Basic Instinct—the film that forever linked their careers—starred Douglas as a recovering coke-addict police detective haunted by his accidental shooting of two tourists, now caught in a sexy web of deception by bisexual author and potential serial killer Stone, who bribed another officer to provide confidential information. Almost forgot—Douglas’s character was nailing the police psychologist, too. Is this the kind of movie the NYPD wants fresh in our minds while seeking donations? Then again, it was set in San Francisco.
With Ryan Reynolds and Chris Hemsworth likely to get a career boost from playing the respective titular superheroes in Green Lantern and Thor (though, as Brandon “Superman” Routh and Gabriel “The Spirit” Macht can attest, there’s no guarantee it will work), every aspiring hunk in Hollywood seems to be fighting for the chance to play World War II’s most powerful patriot in 2011′s The First Avenger: Captain America.
Though early buzz boys Matthew McConaughey and John Krasinski are presumed out of the running (were they ever really in?), there are plenty of studs left to consider. Everyone from Chace Crawfordto Chris Evans to Dane Cook has reportedly auditioned, with Channing Tatum and Ryan Phillippe most recently thrown into the mix. Since Cap is scheduled to be found frozen in ice by Iron Man, the Hulk and Thor in Marvel’s 2012 superhero pile-up The Avengers, scoring this gig could set a young star up for life. Scope out all the would-bes in our super-gallery below.
If Princess isn’t quite the return to the classic days of Disney 2D animation, it’s pretty darned close. The story is a little over-busy. What you need to know is that Tiana dreams of opening a restaurant in New Orleans. She plays second fiddle to a rich socialite, until kissing a prince trapped in amphibian form turns her into a frog, too. The bantering pair bounce to the bayou to find the voodoo priestess who can switch them back. The leads have some cute interplay, Randy Newman‘s songs roll along with an authentic gumbo gait, and the animators work hard to replicate the atmosphere of a swamp drenched in starlight. The lively show is stolen by a Creole firefly, but the real pleasant surprise is how the film rejects Disney’s the bland “princess” stereotype of Belle and Co. for a pluckier African-American version.
Extras: The Blu-Ray/standard combo pack comes with deleted scenes, commentary from the filmmakers, games, a Ne-Yo music video, and a digital version of the film.
The Twilight series may be enjoying massive commercial success and enjoy a rabidly devotional cult, but there’s still one thing it’s failed to achieve: prestige! According to some hot gossip from EW, Summit Entertainment is trying to rope an Oscar-nominated director to classy up their adaptation of the final book, Breaking Dawn, which will likely be split into two movies. Among those mentioned were Milk director Gus Van Sant, Lost In Translation‘s Sofia Coppola and Showgirls‘ Bill Condon, with Van Sant confirming he had been contacted.
Anyone who’s read (or even just read about) the final Twilight novel knows how far it steps from the Pacific Northwest vamp romance of the first book, with one heck of a birthing scene in store for Kristen Stewart and some seriously creepazoid activity from Taylor Lautner‘s Jacob. Judging from their decision to contact Coppola and Condon rather than hailed horror-heads like David Cronenberg or David Lynch (both of whom have respectively delivered monster babies in The Fly and Eraserhead), the producers may be looking for someone who can make this gothic garishness as pretty as possible…and not scare away those who came for romance. With shooting planned for this Fall, it shouldn’t be long before we get a name.
Amanda Seyfried may strip down for the occasional photoshoot or role, but that doesn’t make her some hussy. The 24-year-old actress went for a classical elegance at the NY premiere of her new film Chloe, in which she plays the titular role of a call girl hired by Julianne Moore to tempt her straying husband, Liam Neeson. Thrills, nudity and unpredictable couplings ensue—but Atom Egoyan directed, so it’s art. Sexy, naughty and wrong…but art.

Marion Cotillard had an award-related mishap in Paris today, with French culture minister Frederic Mitterand accidentally stabbing her in the chest with the pin of her “Order Of Arts And Letters” medallion, which she was awarded alongside Alice In Wonderland director Tim Burton, who will also lead the jury at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (might be a good year to enter something spooky and/or based on a children’s story, directors. Just saying.).
Gerard Butler may not be dating Jennifer Aniston (he did tell Gabourey Sidibe he was “available,” after all), but the pair will be joined at the hip at least until The Bounty Hunter no longer requires their publicity efforts. The pair continued their exploration each others’ personal space at the film’s London premiere, with Aniston sporting a skimpy silver minidress. Watch them canoodle in the gallery below.
