American Hustle Stars Remind Us How Sexy The ’70s Really Were

After The Fighter and Silver Linings Playlist, I never doubted that David O. Russell’s American Hustle would be a great film. What surprised me, though, is how it transformed the over-the-top, slightly sleazy aesthetic of its 1978 setting into something truly seductive and sexy. Seriously, I’m scared that men are going to start following Christian Bale’s example and start sporting hairpiece-assisted combovers. When I spoke to Bale, Russell, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, I grilled them about what they found sexy about the era.

Even At 50, There’s Nothing ‘Inglorious’ About Brad Pitt’s Hairvolution

View Photo Gallery

Is there anything more perfect than Brad Pitt? He’s got the perfect wife, perfect career, perfect kids, perfect smile, perfect muscular physique and … let’s stop there, because while we could go on all day, we’re pretty sure none of you need convincing. Even his fashion missteps are perfect, in their own special way! It’s true. We can’t entirely fault Brad for those long bleached blonde locks (it was the ’90s) or even the Kate Gosselin-styled ‘do (also ’90s!). And no one else could rock a scraggly, dreaded beard more grandly than Pitt. Also, most of his, shall we say, less-than-ideal stylings were for a role, or for saving New Orleans, or something.

We keep hearing that vampires, werewolves, witches and angels are losing steam in pop culture, that people want real drama these days. Um, not as long as Internet fandoms around! You can’t take away our eternal love and lust for the shirt-ripping shapeshifters of Teen Wolf, the muscled gods of Thor, the seductive witches of American Horror Story: Coven or the blood-sucking immortals of The Vampire Diaries. One look at the fervor for 2014′s Vampire Academy and you know there’s a future in fangs.

Turn Them On: The 20 Hottest Robots In Pop Culture History

View Photo Gallery

They’re hot, they’re hard, and they run on iOS 5 or higher. Yes ladies and gentlemen, we’re talking about robots! Our beautifully designed A.I. friends have spent decades heating up screens both large and small with their lab-crafted good looks. They may not have feelings, but then again we’ve always been attracted to emotional unavailability. Spike Jonze‘s film Her will be opening wide in a short while, and it promises to give us even more impure thoughts about machines.

Happy Birthday, Vanessa Hudgens! Watch Her Grow Up, And Strip Down, Before Your Eyes

View Photo Gallery

Vanessa Hudgens turns 25 years old today, and instead of having a quarter life crisis — or a public meltdown like other young Hollywood starlets these days — the High School Musical alumna is throwing herself into her work, somewhat responsibly. Not only has she continued departing from her Disney days by assuming adult roles in films like Spring Breakers and Gimme Shelter (January 2014), but she’s also becoming the face  — ahem, and body — of charitable organizations the world over.

Jennifer Lawrence Is Our BFF, And Her American Hustle Co-Stars Aren’t Even Gonna Argue


We’re wrapping up year three of our intense friendship with Jennifer Lawrence, and she doesn’t even know it. In the past 12 months, she’s racked up all the awards and Hunger Games: Catching Fire box office dollars every movie star dreams of, and her crazy good turn in American Hustle (in select theaters today, everywhere December 20) is just going to keep those kudos coming. But the SAG and Golden Globe nods are not what we’re really talking about here. It was in her many interviews, acceptance speeches and red carpet moments that Jen (she let’s us call her that, in our head) really convinced us that she’s the BFF we always wanted — always ready with a fart joke or a self-deprecating comment to brighten our day. We feel like we’ve been in those green rooms doing shots with her, hanging out at her place eating Cheetos, and whispering in her ear when our middle school celebrity crushes walk in the room. Is it healthy to think this way? Jen’s American Hustle co-stars and director David O. Russell were no help at all in dissuading us from our illusions. Watch them refuse to trash talk her above, and then reminisce with us about all the ways she made us think she’s one of us.

Black Friday Bonus: Idris Elba Is Canceling High Prices

Are reading this from a brand-new device you got for next to nothing after standing in line overnight for the big Black Friday sales? Or, are you lazy like us and waiting for Cyber Monday? VH1 News was curious about the holiday shopping habits of the rich and famous, and asked them what they’d wait in line for, with some interesting results. GirlsZosia Mamet would do it for a unicorn (of course!). But our favorite answer came from Idris Elba.

Move Over, Katniss: 10 Sexy Movie Archers We Loved Before The Hunger Games

View Photo Gallery

It’s Hunger Games season! And with posters of Jennifer Lawrence, game-face on, staring you down, pointing her bow and arrow at you in a flourish of flames everywhere you turn, it’s hard not to succumb to the delicate mix of sexiness and feminist bravado the image evokes. It’s true that J-Law looks good doing just about anything — I challenge you to put her in a burlap sack and have her recite the dictionary and it NOT be completely endearing and compelling — but as Katniss Everdeen there’s a real magic in her archery.

Is Catching Fire The Best YA Book-To-Movie Adaptation For Grownups Of The Past 5 Years?

View Photo Gallery

As we celebrate the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this weekend, we’re reminded that it was five years ago this month that a little movie called Twilight burst onto the scene, convincing Hollywood that Harry Potter wasn’t the only game in town when it came to turning kids’ books into wildly successful movies. The numbers — and the fan mania — supported the notion that it wasn’t just kids and teens watching these flicks. Soon, it seemed like every book ever written for young adult or middle grade readers was getting optioned in hopes that they would be the next next big blockbuster franchise. Sadly, as some of this year’s disappointments have shown, you need a little more than a popular book and pretty stars to make a hit.
