The Best Man Holiday Stars: Who Is The Hottest Of Them All?

View Photo Gallery

One of the keys to a good ensemble comedy is having a star to appeal to every taste — in this respect, we think The Best Man and The Best Man Holiday have succeeded quite well. The 10 leads from the sequel, in theaters on Friday, run the gamut from Morris Chestnut, for those who like manly football-player types, to Eddie Cibrian, for those who melt for a good dimple. The ladies range from seductive Melissa De Sousa to sweet Sanaa Lathan. Who is your favorite from among these beautiful people?

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire London Premiere: What Were Those Soggy Stars Thinking?

View Photo Gallery

It was in the 50s and raining today in London, which sounds pretty typical, right? And also, really uncomfortable if A) you’re a fan who has been staying overnight to catch the Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere, or B) you’re one of the movie’s stars trying to be fashionable in a flimsy gown and not-so-sensible shoes. Both parties were still totally happy to see each other, though Donald Sutherland did cut his live streamed interview short, complaining that his feet were cold. Jennifer Lawrence, thankfully, put on her coat for her interview, happily discovering, as she told Yahoo!, that she found two Mentos in her pocket! We’re happy that the stars are willing to suffer for their fans and fashion, but we couldn’t help but caption the above photos with the thoughts we imagine were running through their heads. Not one of which, we assume, was, “Why London?”

Thor & More: Our 20 Favorite Instances Of Gratuitous Male Toplessness

View Photo Gallery

Look, it’s not just actresses who are forced to strip down for gratuitous topless shots. More and more actors are taking one for the team and taking off their shirts. Chris Hemsworth not only took his shirt off for no real reason in the first Thor film, but he does it again in the sequel, Thor: The Dark World! Ryan Reynolds routinely takes his top off on screen and Bella and Edward’s romance in the Twilight saga was almost upstaged by Taylor Lautner‘s abs.

For whatever reason that was shoehorned into the script, these 20 instances of gratuitous male toplessness exist on screen and it’s weird, but also fantastic.

The Best Man Holiday Premiere Red Carpet: Holiday Spirit For Better And Worse

View Photo Gallery

Wait, it’s holiday movie season already? At The Best Man Holiday red carpet premiere in L.A. on Tuesday night, some of the stars embraced this fact whole-heartedly, wearing sparkling silver, glittery blue and delicious red (Morris Chestnut’s velvet blazer is amazing, but boys, don’t try this at home). Some went a little far in this theme (Lil Mama, how we love you). Others ignored the season entirely (looking at you, Claudia Jordan), or simply went with the great style that’s always worked for them (Taye Diggs and his bow ties 4ever). And then there was Terrence Howard, in a category all his own (multiple handkerchiefs, jaunty hat — what could go wrong?).

The 20 Most Essential Matthew McConaughey Movies: The Good, The Bad And Tip Toes

Matthew-McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey may be one of the most famous actors in the world, but he’s also one of the most underrated. He shifts seamlessly from rom-coms to action, while cultivating a bunch of solid indie work and supporting roles on the side. He’s still best known for his cool, cocky grin, Texas swagger and off-screen antics (naked bongo drum party, anyone?), though that’s slowly been changing in recent years with memorable turns in Killer Joe, Magic Mike and Mud.

Finally, the real game-changer is here. McConaughey’s work as an HIV positive man supplying drugs for fellow patients in Dallas Buyer’s Club is undeniably excellent, and we’re sure to see him on awards show short lists in coming months. Obviously this is  a great time to brush up on McConaughey’s most memorable roles, and we’ve got a perfect list of his finest films for you to review. Some are excellent, some are terrible, and some are recommended to VH1 by the actor himself. Behold, the 20 Most Essential Matthew McConaughey Movies to watch RIGHT NOW. (In reverse chronological order, because we’re anal like that.)

Age Before Beauty: The Top 10 Movies Ranked By Oldest Cast Member Age

oldpeoplemovies

As young people spend less and less of their time hitting the multiplexes and more and more of their time BitTorrenting movies to their whoozamawhatchits, Hollywood has (wisely) decided to make more movies aimed at people who don’t know the difference between a Kindle Fire and the kindle you use to make a fire. This weekend’s Last Vegas is a prime example of that release strategy; by casting near-geriatric leads like Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline, the studio is clearly targeting an audience that’s more familiar with Social Security than social media. This got us thinking: What films have the oldest median age of their primary castmembers?

Remembering River Phoenix On The 20-Year Anniversary Of His Death

View Photo Gallery

It was 20 years ago today that River Phoenix died on a dirty sidewalk in Hollywood. If that sentence sounds a bit harsh, well, it’s supposed to. That’s the unfortunate reality of the what happened on October 31, 1993. One of the most promising actors of his generation had just been inside of Johnny Depp‘s notoriously hedonistic rock club, the Viper Room, hoping to join his buddy Flea (from the Red Hot Chili Peppers) on-stage, but instead decided to ingest a cocktail—a literal cocktail!—that contained heroin and cocaine. Just a few minutes later, he was convulsing near a parking meter on Sunset Boulevard; he never regained consciousness. He was 23 years old.
