At 48, Molly Shannon is still the kind of woman who turns heads, with her mischievous grin and twinkling blue eyes. And, when she opens her mouth, she’s also the kind of woman who causes you to bust a gut. In short, she’s wildly funny. Shannon is perhaps best known for her six-year run on “Saturday Night Live,” where she brought to life such remarkable characters as 50-year-old Sally O’Malley between 1995 and 2001. But she’s also enjoyed a memorable presence on many other TV shows as well, appearing on everything from “Seinfeld” to “The Middle” to HBO’s “Enlightened.”
Born in 1964 in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Shannon endured a horrific tragedy early on that would shape the rest of her life. »

They’re been teasing this website longer than you can say something long but now, finally, the slightly creepy Elysium viral campaign website has launched! If you’re not sure what I mean by viral campaign, it’s like a mix of movie marketing that also starts to make the world from the movie real. Well, as real as viably possible.
In this case, there’s an automated plastic-looking robot man who asks you questions to see if you can enter their unique and perfect Elysium world. If you fail though, or if you answer their questions in the wrong way, there’s a possibility you’ll never get off Earth (which is crumbling to pieces), and you will never experience the beauty and luxury of this so-called asylum called, quite aptly, Elysium.

Bored at work? A fun little piece of viral marketing has come out for Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium.

To take the test, go to ItsBetterUpHere.com.
The film opens August 9th and stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, William Fichtner and Wagner Moura. I predict it to be the best of the dystopian movies this summer, topping Oblivion and After Earth. »

Lawrence, 22, enjoyed the fact that Foster, who is an actress herself, was clear about what she wanted from actors while shooting.
"What I like about working with an actress as a director is that she's not afraid of actors," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Lawrence as saying.
"People tip-toe around actors like they are emotional land mines, which is probably right, but I find that annoying because I want someone to tell me what I'm doing wrong. She was very blunt. She would just be like, 'Talk louder. Do this'. I like that a lot," she said.

The ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ star is on the June cover of ‘Allure’ and she reveals in an interview that she may raise children with a woman.
Zoe Saldana is not against taking a dip in the lady pond. In fact, the actress says that if it feels right, she’d “do that” — be with a woman — because it’s her life.
Zoe Saldana Bisexual — Actress Admits To ‘Allure’: I Might End Up With A Woman
“[I might] end up with a woman raising my children…” Zoe said in the pages of Allure magazine.
Zoe, 34, calls herself androgynous, but her confession may seem a bit shocking, especially coming on the heels of her reported split with sexy hunk Bradley Cooper. However, Zoe says she has “been there done that” when it comes to dating actors.
The actress, who weighs a shocking 115 pounds, further elaborated on the reveal at the Star Trek »

In the year 2159, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy "Coordinators," people who can afford bio-genetical engineering, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium built by the Armadyne Corporation and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes, a hard government ofﬁcial, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky ex-con Max is backed »

Angelina Jolie's deeply personal revelation in a New York Times op-ed that she underwent a double mastectomy in February to minimize her future risk of breast cancer made headlines around the world and the blogosphere lit up with overwhelmingly positive reactions. But while it isn't every day that an A-lister discloses such a private matter to the world in such candid, public fashion, Jolie is certainly not the first celebrity to have taken to use a news outlet's opinion section to get a message across. Be it personal, pithy or political, here are five more stars who've penned headline-making op-eds: 1. Jodie Foster Defends Kristen Stewart: Months before inspiring a number of »
Only on Saturday Night Live would it be beside the point that Kate McKinnon is the show’s first openly gay woman. Since her debut just over a year ago, she has single-handedly revived the perennial show’s long lineage of searing, spot-on impersonations that rival those of Darryl Hammond, Gilda Radner and Martin Short. Her versions of Shakira, Penelope Cruz, Jodie Foster and Edie Falco don’t just come close; like any good caricature, they actually redefine the way you see the original person.
And yet, McKinnon is used so sparingly it begs putting the question to Lorne Michaels: What the hell are you waiting for? Her talent is bigger and brighter than some of your full-time cast members. She’s your ticket out of the malaise that has beset Season No. 38.
McKinnon’s “I’m Ellen” take on Ellen DeGeneres has earned not only kudos – Vulture called »

Foster previously directed the Oscar-winning actress in The Beaver. Lawrence told Total Film how working with her has been encouraging.
"What I like about working with an actress as a director is that she's not afraid of actors," the 22-year-old said.
"People tip-toe around actors like they are emotional land mines, which is probably right, but I find that annoying because I want someone to tell me what I'm doing wrong.
"She was very blunt. She would just be like, 'Talk louder. Do this'. I like that a lot."
The 2011 film also starred Mel Gibson as Foster's on-screen husband, while Lawrence played the secret love interest of their son.
Since the movie, Foster has praised Lawrence on her choice of roles.

Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz will most likely end up starring alongside Denzel Washington in the Antoine Fuqua-directed film The Equalizer. According to the report, Sony Pictures said Moretz has a strong reading with Washington, and they are going to offer her the part of the lead female role, Teri.
The studio was originally looking to cast a twenty-something year old in the role. Moretz, who is still a teenager, must have just blew them all away because they made an exception. They redrew the role, and she will play a young prostitute in the movie, which the report says is "reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver." Moretz is a great young actress that is really taking on some edgy movie roles. I'm sure she's going to be great in the part.
The story centers on Robert McCall, a former spy turned private detective. For those of you not »

Jodie Foster is reunited with her ex Cydney Bernard, just in time for Mother's Day! The former couple and parents stepped out in Santa Monica yesterday, accompanied by their 14-year-old son, Charles. Both ladies were dressed casually—Foster in jeans and a white button-down shirt and Bernard in khakis and matching top—as they strolled through a parking lot. Charles sported tennis shoes, basketball shorts and black tee with the number 12 on it. Foster and Bernard were also recently spotted together on a Bel-Air coffee date a Starbucks. Foster and Bernard have another child, 12-year-old son Kit. Wonder if the family has any big Mother's Day plans for Sunday? »
“Moretz is a surprise choice to play the role of Teri, in that the role was originally drawn for a twentysomething. After Moretz did a chemistry reading with Washington, he was very impressed as was everybody else, and the role will be redrawn for Moretz to play a young prostitute, reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver.”
The original “Equalizer” was Edward Woodward. Watch the intro for the original TV show here.

In what is absolutely the coolest news you’re going to get all week, Chloe Grace Moretz is going to be in the upcoming TV refire, The Equalizer. Of course, this is a film that has been tossed around for quite a while, and I’m not sure that making it into a movie even makes the slightest bit of sense, but I’m looking forward to it now.
Having been a fan of the show when it aired, I’m not sure I really get Denzel Washington either, but whatever.
What do you think of this one? Is this going to be good? I’m not even going to ask what you think of the addition of Chloe Grace Moretz, because what you think is that it’s awesome.

Hello fellow queer cinephiles! As we enter the long, hot days of summer, everyone wants to cool off in a theater and watch other people try to save the world. The summer tends to be a pretty testosterone-soaked season for movies, so I’m here to help you sort the films you want to be in the front row for from those you just use as an excuse to cuddle in the back.
Editor's note: * denotes a film that includes openly lesbian/bi actresses or lesbian/bi characters.

You’re there to see: Venus and Serena Williams, obviously.
In a nutshell: Who doesn’t want to know more about the two sisters who changed tennis forever? This one’s a must-see for any lesbian with a pair of athletic shoes.

We already learned that Antoine Fuqua replaced Nicolas Winding Refn and take over Columbia Pictures’ upcoming adaptation of The Equalizer with Denzel Washington set to star. Now comes word that only sixteen years old, Chloe Moretz has been cast as the female lead for the big-screen adaptation of Michael Sloan‘s popular ’80s crime show. Moretz will play the role of a Teri, a young prostitute, reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver. The role was written for twenty-something actor, but a reading between Washington and the Kick-Ass star has yielded some very impressive results. Since the actress has tweeted that she ‘cannot wait to start,’...
