Just How Alike Are Gimme Shelter Co-Stars Vanessa Hudgens And Rosario Dawson? We Quizzed Them To Find Out!

Vanessa Hudgens does her best to erase High School Musical from our collective memory with her new role as pregnant, homeless teen Apple Bailey in Gimme ShelterIt’s a mostly uplifting story, but the darkest scenes in the film belong to Rosario Dawson as Apple’s mom, and the moments the pair are onscreen together are intense and electric.

The two play mother and daughter, share a manager and have lead surprisingly parallel careers, so we wanted to test out each actress’ knowledge about the other. We quizzed the pair during a recent interview in Los Angeles. Just how well do they know the other? Watch and learn.

Gimme Shelter opens in theaters on January 24.

Kate Hudson, Kristen Stewart And The Women Of Sundance 2014

Mad Men may be months away, but Joan and Roger are together again in God’s Pocket (starring Christina Hendricks and directed by John Slattery), which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The list of breakout stars from the 2014 Park City fest is already lengthy–and as always, there is the far-from-shabby Robert Redford to gush about. In addition to acclaimed performances from newcomer Miles Teller in Whiplash, Hollywood royalty like Kate Hudson and Maggie Gyllenhaal have jumped into their ski boots, with impressive indie performances in tow.

Guess which people we like best? We gathered the funniest bits here, in case you decided to watch Flowers in the Attic — or you know, go see an actual movie — instead.

Free Spirits: The Best Cleavage Styles Of The ’70s Are Making A Comeback Today

View Photo Gallery

Let’s not mince words here. American Hustle, more than anything, was a foray into the many and varied ways into which Amy Adams‘ cleavage could be exposed. From spangly dresses with plunging necklines to the more humble wrap around dress, Adams’ greatest assets were consistently and brazenly on display. Not that anyone is complaining.

When Stuff Got Weird: Flowers In The Attic + 10 Other Incestuous Moments On Film

love-gone-wrong

Today the remake of the disturbing, provocative and emotional Flowers in the Attic is airing on Lifetime. The movie (and the book it’s based on) may make us shiver, but it does star a very talented cast: Heather Graham, Ellen Burstyn, Kiernan Shipka and Mason Dye. In honor of this premiere and its weighty plotline (*cough* incest central), we’ve collected 10 instances of family intimacies that have reached blurry territory on TV and in film. From sibling makeouts (ahem, Star Wars) to dads getting hot n’ heavy with their daughter’s best friend (American Beauty) — we’re taking you to a disturbing place, and we have the video clips to prove it. So brace yourself for some uncomfortable squirming. Shizz is about to get really weird. Read more…

Oscar Nominee Lupita Nyong’o's Most Adorable Awards Show Instagram Pics

View Photo Gallery

Congrats to Lupita Nyong’o on picking up her first (of what we hope is many to come) Oscar nomination for her role in 12 Years a Slave. The actress has enjoyed a big few months since the movie’s release thanks to a number of honors and accolades for her heart wrenching performance as a tortured and brutalized slave. While she commands a serious presence on screen, her life off has been anything but. A peek inside her Instagram account shows the adorable side of Nyong’o as she goes from awards show to awards show, picking up trophies and new celebrity besties along the way. Oh, hugging Lena Dunham? Check! Selfies with Jared Leto? Mark it off the list.

We can’t wait to see what she’ll post at future shows and who will make her Oscars Hug Checklist. We hope it includes fellow nominees Jonah Hill and Jennifer Lawrence.

Ride Along Exclusive: Ice Cube Says There’s No Place For Kevin Hart In N.W.A

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are the perfect odd couple in Ride Along, which follows a bumbling wannabe police officer/gamer as he hangs with his girlfriend’s protective cop brother for a day to prove he’s worthy of her hand in marriage. Hilarity ensues (duh) and most of it stems from the on-screen chemistry of Hart and Cube, whom we should thank (along with the women of The Heat) for bringing back the buddy action-comedy in full force.
