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.
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.
Is Khloe Kardashian already warming up to another man? Why did Brad Pitt once apologize to a gossip columnist? And who is the Best Movie Character of 2013?
Is Jon Hamm‘s much-discussed blessing actually a curse? Saturday Night Live responds to recent criticism, and movie reviews get their Hustle on.
Compiling a worst-dressed list for you guys is harder than you might imagine — where do you put the folks like Lady Gaga, who are trying very hard not to look human? And how about stars like Kristen Stewart, who are under contract to wear whatever suits the designers paying their checks? Do we fault men for being slobs and women for taking risks?
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.
It’s been a rough year for Paula Deen. After all the drama she went through, she’s “really, really happy to see 2013 gone.”
After months of speculation, Khloe Kardashian is filing for divorce from Lamar Odom. She’s expected to file papers as early as Friday TMZ has learned. The reality star will cite irreconcilable differences in the legal documents. Because the two had a set prenup and no kids between them, the divorce should be pretty quick and they two could be officially separated by the new year.
Dragons might be the hottest mythical creatures in film and television — and it’s not just because of their fiery breath! They can soar through the sky, protect you from danger and some of them share a dark velvety voice with Benedict Cumberbatch. It might seem crazy, but the sound of Smaug’s voice in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug had us reconsidering our thoughts on bestiality. Well, at the very least, it had us thinking about dragons in a new light.
With Homeland and Masters of Sex drawing to a close this weekend, TV is about to get a lot less sexy. Both shows boast a cast of strapping leading men that have, from week to week, made us laugh, cry and swoon. When you look at the current roster of shows airing on each network, it’s safe to say that Showtime has contracted some of the most alluring men to appear on TV. Whether it’s Homeland (Damian Lewis), Dexter (we miss you already, Michael C. Hall!), Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber for DILF of the year) or even Nurse Jackie (mmm, Morris Chestnut), there’s a man for everyone.
