View Photo Gallery

What happens when actors decide to take a stab at directing? A lot. Clint Eastwood and Robert Redford have made the transition look easy, earning accolades and Oscars their directorial work. But for others, the road is a lot less golden. See: Jason Alexander‘s little-seen For Better or Worse. No, the Seinfeld curse is not limited to television…

Arrested Development star Jason Bateman is the latest actor to step behind the camera, making his directorial debut with Bad Words. (Michael Bluth just had to one-up his family members, didn’t he?)

As we look back on the year that was, we can’t ignore the moments that made us blush. Sex has been a thing since the start of mankind (sorry Mary and Joseph), but sex in pop culture exploded in 2013. And it wasn’t just the so-called implications of Miley Cyrus twerking. Read more…

Don Jon Talking Points: 10 Essential Facts

DonJonJGLScarlettMovie

Grab your mom, pop up some popcorn, and get ready to enjoy a flick that’s all about porn. On the surface, Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s full-length directorial debut, is about a Jersey boy who views women as objects whose sole purpose is to get him off. But underneath all that almost-nudity is a smart comedy that examines how media shapes our expectations and provides an escape from our everyday lives. With porn.

View Photo Gallery

Believe it or not, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been a part of our lives for over 20 years. Now known for his acting and directorial work in films like Don Jon (out Friday, September 27) and with his production company, hitRECord, the 32-year-old got his big break in Disney’s Angels in the Outfield playing a diehard California baseball fan who was lucky enough to have Christopher Lloyd looking out for him. Next came NBC’s sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun , and from there, JGL simply grew up before our eyes.

by Meghan O’Keefe (@megsokay)

The Daily Mail just reported that the delightful Anna Kendrick has officially split up with her longtime love, Edgar Wright. Heartbreak is always devastating, but Anna is so lovely and Edgar is such a funny and talented director (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Shaun of the Dead) that this is especially sad.

But there’s always a silver lining to every dark cloud. When one celebrity romance is over, that means another one can begin! Read more…

Alexander Skarsgard, Adam Brody, Joseph Gordon-Levitt & More: The Male Eye Candy Of Sundance

Adam Brody, Ricky Whittle, Daniel Dae Kim and Alexander Skarsgard at Sundance

As the 2013 Sundance Film Festival enters its homestretch, we’ve noticed one thing about it: This year seems more about the films than the star-studded, super-sponsored A-list parties. Which, um, we’re pretty sure is what Robert Redford wants from his Utah fest. Lucky enough for those of us living vicariously through our friends (and photographers) in Park City, there has still been no shortage of eye candy. Here, we’re taking a moment to point out the lovely array of actors who put on their best puffy jackets and risked some great hat-hair to premiere their artsy movies. From Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Alexander Skarsgard, Adam Brody to Chris Noth, there were plenty of familiar faces at the festival, along with some relative newcomers like Austenland’s Ricky Whittle. We even gave Matthew McConaughey an honorary spot in this gallery, because even though his drastic weight loss for Dallas Buyers Club has sapped his conventional beauty, he’s looking kinda weird hot as he packs the pounds back on. And if there’s anything that’s appropriate for Sundance, it’s definitely the phrase “weird hot.”

If Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Happy At Sundance, We All Win


“I remember watching Reservoir Dogs and Sling Blade and Swingers and Big Night and The Usual Suspects and all those movies that came through Sundance back when I was working on 3rd Rock From the Sun, and I said to myself, ‘One day I’m going to have a movie at Sundance,’ ” Joseph Gordon-Levitt told VH1 News at the Sundance (and world) premiere of Don Jon’s Addiction on Friday night. And boy has his dream come true in a big way. Since his days as a sitcom alien, Joe’s been in quite a few Sundance films, but Don Jon’s marks his writing/directing debut. You could say he was rather pleased about that: “I’m kind of astonished and flabbergasted and just happy!”

This meant the rest of us got to enjoy plenty of photos and videos of JGL being astonished and flabbergasted and happy as he partied at the Sundance Channel’s house on Friday night, along with co-stars Julianne Moore and Tony Danza. And we’re going out on a limb here and guessing that his beaming face is part of what helped him sell the film about a Jersey guy so addicted to porn that he gives up a relationship with Scarlett Johansson for it. On Monday, Relativity Media confirmed the huge deal they gave JGL that will land the movie on 2,000 screens this summer.
