Over the course of seven films, a number of mutants have been featured in the X-Men universe. While plenty of sexy female actresses have stepped into the shoes of female mutants, it’s the men that have made our tongues wag. Among them, Hugh Jackman, who has played Wolverine in all seven films, Michael Fassbender (Magneto), and Nicholas Hoult (Beast). These men have turned the X-Men films into a display of muscles, abs and bulges. But how do all the mutants stack up against each other? We went back through the previous six films as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past in order to rank the hottest male mutants on the big screen. Where does James McAvoy or Lucas Till rank? You’ll have to click through to find out.
Feeling like you’ve got a bad case of the Mondays? Don’t worry! The stars of X-Men: Days of Future Past are about to save your day. Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy all demonstrated their sweet dance moves on British chat show, The Graham Norton Show, this weekend, and it’s just the thing to get the party started.
A famous TV personality shells out serious cash for a manicure, Lindsay Lohan lets herself down, and the stars of Captain America: The Winter Soldier get tested on their Marvel knowledge.
12 Years A Slave is already generating massive amounts of Oscar buzz-and with good reason. It’s a searing, unflinching (and very stressful) look at slavery as seen through the eyes of Solomon Northup, a freeman who was wrongfully captured and sold into slavery. Northup was a real man, and the events in 12 Years A Slave actually happened. We spoke to the film’s stars, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Sarah Paulson, about how they handled the film’s most soul-crushing moments.

October means it’s acceptable to begin talking about Hollywood award season, even if you’re currently more focused on scoring enough Halloween candy to hold you over until 2014. Festival hits are finally making their way to your local theater, carrying with them the praise of many respected critics. If there’s one trend among the biggest fall releases it’s this: these movies are going to stress you out.
Was Kurt Cobain‘s daughter, Frances Bean, almost Bella Swan? Who is Michael Fassbender getting cozy with in London? And will Will Smith be king of the summer box office again?
There comes a time in every actors life when they’re faced with going Full Monty for a flick. And if it’s an important indie — why the hell not? From Michael Fassbender to Angelina Jolie, we salute these sexy superstars for baring serious vaj and Johnson for the sake of art!
Also, is Gwyneth leaving her kids hungry? And who is going to be romancing Natalie Portman now that Michael Fassbender has dropped out of his role in Jane Got A Gun? All this and more in today’s Last Lap.
We’d like to start by saying that we love our work. We just love pizza, ice cream cakes and those Girl Scout cookies with the coconut a hell of a lot more. And that’s the thing that separates us from the truly great actors. Well, that and a zillion KFC buckets worth of talent! Uber-dedicated movie stars will sometimes go the extra mile and put their bodies through insane physical transformations that make us sore just watching them up there on the big screen. Many hit the gym ruthlessly to purge every excess pound from their body and slim down, while some (occasionally) take a few weeks to pack on the pounds for a role. If it were us we’d choose the pound-packing parts exclusively, but hey!
More recently Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto took the tougher route and each shed an unbelievable amount of weight for their respective roles. Anne famously lost 25 pounds for the part of Fantine in the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables by eating two thin squares of oatmeal paste a day! We imagine that includes no dessert? McConaughey jettisoned his Magic Mike six-pack to play the HIV positive lead in Dallas Buyers Club, and his whopping 40 pound weight loss has lead some to wonder if he’s going too far. It’s got to be rough, but they certainly aren’t the first famous folks to go through such a dramatic body overhaul before going in front of the camera. Head on down to the gallery below for more thespians who took their bodies to crazy town, all in the name of their art. Sit down with a nice bag of chips and enjoy!
