Another sad chapter in the saga of Lindsay Lohan went down when the actress stopped by Watch What Happens Live Thursday night.
Ostensibly there to promote Lindsay, which concludes its run this Sunday, Andy Cohen wasted no time playing one of the show’s most popular games with the actress — Plead the Fifth, where the guest is asked three dish-y questions and allowed to “plead the fifth” on only one. And naturally, Cohen used this opportunity to ask Lohan about the alleged “sex list” that’s been making the rounds in the tabloids. His exact question for her: “Recently, an »

While Indian cinema will have a slightly lesser presence at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival -- after India served as the official guest country of the 2013 edition -- veteran Bollywood banner Yash Raj Films is having a moment, with two titles in this year's official selection. The studio's recently established La-based outfit Yrf Entertainment co-produced Cannes 2014 opening film, Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. Photos: 50 Never-Before-Seen Portraits From Cannes And Yrf's co-production Titli will screen in the Un Certain Regard section -- the only Indian film selected for competition at Cannes this year. The

This morning the lineup was announced for the annual Cannes Film Festival, the glittery European festival where a premium is placed luxury and decadence and many super important, Oscar-bound films make their starry debut. And this year's festival, which didn't include any big surprises or giant-sized premieres, is still an embarrassment of riches nonetheless.
The opening night film, "Grace of Monaco," features Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly. This lavish period biopic, directed by "La Vie En Rose" filmmaker Olivier Dahan, had been previously announced. But it still set the bar pretty high, at least when it came to prestige movies starring big time celebrities. Thankfully, the rest of the slate followed through.
Amongst the movies with big names are "Moneyball" director Bennett Miller's based on a true story "Foxcatcher," which features Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum; genius French director (and Cannes favorite) Olivier Assayas's drama "Clouds of Sils Maria, »

Also competing for the Palme d’Or is The Homesman from director Tommy Lee Jones, and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, which features Robert Pattinson.
How to Train Your Dragons 2 will also premiere at Cannes, with an out of competition screening. »

The full Official Selection lineup for this year's 67th Cannes Film Festival, which takes place from 14-24 May, was announced in Paris this morning at 10pm GMT. As previously revealed, New Zealand director Jane Campion, best known for 1993 Palme d'Or winner The Piano, will preside over the jury this time around. Olivier Dahan's long-delayed Grace of Monaco (2014) - which sees Australian actress Nicole Kidman play the late, great Grace Kelly - will be first out on the Croisette as opening film. Meanwhile, highlights of this year's Palme d'Or race include new films from Nuri Bilge Ceylan, David Cronenberg, Xavier Dolan, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach and the Oscar-winning director of The Artist, Michel Hazanavicius. Sadly, however, Terrence Malick will not be in attendance with any of his new features.

Charlie.s Country, which stars David Gulpilil as an aging man who struggles to understand how he should define himself as an Aboriginal in modern Australia, will screen in the Un Certain Regard sidebar.
The South Australian Film Corp. and Screen Australia invested in both films. .This caps off a pretty good 12 months for Safc-backed films,. said CEO Richard Harris, also referring to The Babadook, 52 Tuesdays and The Infinite Man.
"This recognition from Cannes is very significant for the possibilities of the film in the marketplace," de Heer said. "I am so pleased for David, for all his effort to be rewarded and for »

God bless us, every one! It's April 17th, which means it's the cinephile's version of Christmas, because today sees the announcement of the line-up for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, still the biggest and most prestigious international fest in the calendar. Rumors have been flying for a few weeks now, and we've known for a while that the festival would open with Nicole Kidman-starrer "Grace Of Monaco," in which the Oscar-winner plays legendary star-turned-princess Grace Kelly, but now the full festival line-up has been announced and it looks promising. Among the hotly-tipped movies that have been confirmed this morning are David Cronenberg's inside-Hollywood tale "Maps To The Stars" starring Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Olivia Williams and Robert Pattinson, "The Rover," "Animal Kingdom" helmer David Michod's apocalyptic follow-up, also starring Pattinson along with Guy Pearce and Scoot McNairy (which is a Midnight Screening rather than in-competition as expected »

Tommy Lee Jones, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan will duke it out with Jean-Luc Godard, Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Michel Hazanavicius and the Dardenne brothers for the Palme d’Or at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup this morning in Paris by fest topper Thierry Fremaux.
The wide-ranging competition slate is typically heavy on French filmmakers, with Olivier Assayas’ international co-production “Clouds of Sils Maria” and Bertrand Bonello’s fashion-designer biopic “Saint Laurent” joining Hazanavicius’ “The Search” and Godard’s 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language.” Fremaux noted that Godard, famously a no-show at the 2010 Cannes premiere of his “Film socialisme,” had “promised he’ll be there — which doesn’t mean he will!”
One of the more intriguing developments of this year’s competition is the unusual dominance of Canadian auteurs. »

The Cannes Film Festival unveiled this year's poster today in Paris. Conceived by Hervé Chigioni and graphic designer Gilles Frappier of the Lagency creative studio, the poster features Marcello Mastroianni based on a photogram taken from Federico Fellini's 8 1/2, which starred Mastroianni and was presented in the festival's Official Selection in 1963. The Oscar-nominated Italian actor, who passed away in 1996, was cast in many of Fellini's film, including La Dolce Vita. He was the perfect actor to play the director's complex, tortured leading men. His final film, Manoel de Oliveira's Voyage to the Beginning of the World, was released in 1997. Hit the jump for more. "The way he looks at us above his black glasses draws us right into a promise of global cinematographic happiness," Chigioni told French cable news channel Bfmtv. "The happiness of experiencing the Cannes Film Festival together." Actress Chiara Mastroianni, whose mother is Catherine Deneuve, »

Plus take another look @ Kidman in a new "Harper’s Bazaar" (Australia) magazine spread, photographed by James White, in support of the film.
The new movie focuses on Kelly's crisis of marriage and identity, during a dispute between Monaco's 'Prince Rainier III' and French President 'Charles De Gaulle', set against a looming French military invasion of the principality in the early 1960's.
Kelly's son Prince Albert II, his sisters Princess Caroline and Princess Stéphanie reportedly criticized the subject matter of the approved script, describing it as "needlessly glamorized and historically inaccurate...therefore, the 'Royal Family' wishes to stress that »

Hard to believe that the Cannes Film Festival is just a month away -- before you know it, people will be cranking up the Oscar conversation again. The full lineup will be announced in Paris on April 17, but another nugget was revealed this morning. The opening film of the theoretically secondary, but increasingly prestigious, Un Certain Regard competition will be a French title: "Party Girl," the joint directorial debut of Marie Amacoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis. In recent years, Cannes has sometimes kicked off Ucr with a big-name auteur title: Gus Van Sant's "Restless" and, last year, Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" both took the slot, as a kind of compensation for the directors being demoted from the main Competition. The more left-field selection of "Party Girl," says the festival, is indicative of the section's mission to expose fresh talent. The film is a mix of fact and fiction, »

Cannes has officially announced another film in this year's line-up ahead of the full selection unveiling next week. We already know that Olivier Dahan's Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, will be the opening competition film of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Following that we can now include Party Girl, a film written and directed by Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis, which has been chosen to open the Official Selection of the Un Certain Regard category. It follows Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring which was presented in 2013. So far, so good, with the complete list of 2014 films next week. Un Certain Regard is part of the Cannes selection that introduces young talent and encourages innovative and daring cinema. Produced by Elzévir Films, Party Girl shows the life of Angélique, a 60 year-old night club hostess who still loves men and enjoys partying, but now as the senior member on staff, »

Los Angeles (AP) — With several films set to debut this year, including such disparate turns as a taxidermist villainess, mysterious amnesiac and an actress-turned-princess, Nicole Kidman will again become a familiar face in theaters. While maintaining a steady presence in Hollywood for more than two decades, the 46-year-old Academy Award winner has been focusing more in recent years on raising her two daughters with husband and country star Keith Urban — away from the spotlight in Nashville, Tenn. For her latest role in "The Railway Man," out April 11, the "Moulin Rouge" and "The Hours" star plays a supportive wife to World War II veteran Eric Lomax (Colin Firth). In the autobiographical adaptation, Patti and Eric Lomax confront his past as a prisoner of war in Thailand, where he worked on the "death railway," a 258-mile stretch of treacherous train track running into Burma. Upcoming this year, Kidman will also play a villainess in "Paddington, »

Wedding season is upon us, which means we'll soon start seeing celebrities walking down the aisles for lavish events. One of the most popular types of nuptials among the famous set is the themed wedding, and everyone from David and Victoria Beckham to Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum has given the big day a special spin. We've rounded up some star weddings that will have you swooning - and scratching your head. To see them all, just keep reading. Sean Parker's Lord of the Rings Lovefest Source: Vanity Fair / Christian Oth When Sean Parker, one of the Internet masterminds behind Napster and Facebook, married singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas in a lavish ceremony in Big Sur, CA, in June 2013, our curiosity was instantly piqued - and once we saw photos of the over-the-top affair, it was clear that we were looking at one of the biggest, craziest, most far-fetched themed weddings we'd ever seen. »

Nicole Kidman's Grace of Monaco biopic probably won't be getting the royal seal of approval anytime soon. According to a new report from The New York Post's Page Six, the royal family of Monaco will not be attending the world premiere of the movie at Cannes this year, in part because of a clash with the filmmakers. Page Six claims that Prince Albert is upset about the film's portrayal of his father, Prince Rainier, who married actress Grace Kelly in 1956. (Kidman, 46, stars as the late [...] »
Grace Kelly is having a comeback this year. The Weinsteins' "Grace of Monaco," starring Nicole Kidman, is opening Cannes. (The film mostly deals with the Hollywood star turned princess giving up her career for love.) Toronto's Tiff Bell Lightbox mounted a Kelly exhibition. And a new six-film DVD collection is set to arrive later this summer, celebrating the quintessential icy blonde. Which leads us to ask: What are Kelly's best films? 1. Hitchcock's "Rear Window" is the clear frontrunner. A slow-burn masterpiece of reflexivity, the one-location tale sees Jimmy Stewart immobilized with a broken leg, left to let his mind and long-lens camera wander wild around the courtyard of his apartment block. And, lo and behold, he discovers Raymond Burr's up to some rather disturbing wife-removal. Meanwhile Kelly uses all her persuasive powers -- including a sensational shimmering nightgown -- to make the case for Stewart settling down with her. »
