If there’s one network that has become a huge guilty pleasure, it’s Lifetime. The network continues to make movie safter movies that are must-see events. This weekend is no different with Christina Ricci starring in Lifetime’s version of Lizzie Borden, a woman accused and acquitted of the ax murders of her father and stepmother. Lizzie Borden Took an Ax has all the elements that make for a good Lifetime flick: drama, murder, brooding men, inappropriate relationships, mystery and intrigue. That’s what makes it such a perfect celebrity biopic. Like Anna Nicole Smith (Anna Nicole) and Elizabeth Taylor (Liz & Dick) before her, Lizzie joins a long list of celebs who got the Lifetime treatment. However, there are so many more that we want made!
Aaron Eckhart is battling the box office this weekend as a demon-killing version of Frankenstein’s Creature in I, Frankenstein. The film (one of our most anticipated movies of 2014) looks to be a massive rewrite of Mary Shelley‘s terrifying philosophical masterpiece. Not just because, you know, Frankenstein’s Creature is calling himself Frankenstein and battling gargoyles, but also because he’s freaking hot. Which led us to wonder, is Frankenstein’s Creature sexy? So, we went back through time and dredged up the hottest Frankensteins for your consideration.

Zach Braff and Kate Hudson play husband and wife in Wish I was Here quite believably. And, OK, we know they’re just friends, but when we caught up with them at the film’s Sundance premiere, we could swear there was some serious real life chemistry going on! Between their doe-eyed gazes and the way they’d chime in to finish each other’s thoughts, our inner matchmaker’s imagination was fired up. Should Matt Bellamy and Taylor Bagley (Zach’s model gf) be worried?
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 Shelter. It’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.
Mariska Hargitay is such a badass on Law & Order: SVU and such an incredible force for good in real life, that sometimes we forget her earlier years as a bombshell beauty. Silly us — she is, after all, the daughter of original blond bombshell Jayne Mansfield and bodybuilder Mickey Hargitay. Today, as the actress turns the big 5-0, we’re looking back at some vintage foxy photos of Mariska.
Is Kim Kardashian trying to be a size 0 bride? Could Wolf of Wall Street‘s Margot Robbie strip down for Playboy? Does Shailene Woodley think that Ansel Elgort is going to live up to the hype in The Fault In Our Stars?
Cara Delevingne and Michelle Rodriguez aren’t quite done with each other, Daniel Radcliffe heads to Brooklyn, and Matt Damon keeps fans hanging when asked about Interstellar.

“Hello? Is it a Best Week Ever poll you’re looking for?” Okay, that’s not how the Lionel Ritchie song really goes, but that’s how it should go. We’re not going to find out who is officially having the Best Week Ever until an all new episode of Best Week Ever airs Friday January 24, at 10/9 C. That all said, it can’t hurt to hazard some guesses? Check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes clips where the cast lets us know whom they are voting for and then let us know who YOU think is having the Best Week Ever!
Carmen Electra has never been shy when it comes to her body. On numerous occasions, the former Playboy playmate and Singled Out host has titillated with revealing red carpet looks. Her recent date with Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker, was no different. During a dinner at Crossroads Restaurant in West Hollywood, CA, Electra went out in a bra-less, see-through sheer dress. Meanwhile, Barker hid behind a hoodie and unkept beard. How romantic!
