Which American actress is richer than Oprah? According to a new list, "Seinfeld" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is worth a whopping $3 billion, beating Oprah by $300 million and becoming the fourth richest celebrity (singers, rappers, actors, models). Louis-Dreyfus didn't earn all that money from her work on "Seinfeld." In fact, most of it comes from her family. But that's not to say that "Seinfeld" didn't make her richer. Both Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David made the list, each being worth $800 million. What's interesting is that Keanu Reeves is worth $350 million, which is more than Will Smith ($200 million) and Bruce Springsteen ($200 million). But that's nothing comparing to the person who took first place, George Lucas, who's worth $7.3 billion, mostly thanks to the sale of "Star Wars" to Disney. Check out the top 50 list below: 1. George Lucas: $7.3 Billion 2. Dina Merrill: $5 Billion 3. Steven Spielberg: $3 Billion 4. Julia Louis-Dreyfus: $3 Billion 5. Oprah Winfrey: »
Getting labeled as the female version of One Direction, the ladies of Fifth Harmony have been keeping busy since coming in third place on The X Factor last season. They've been working on their new record, and couldn't be more excited about its debut. I recently caught up with the group (Lauren Jauregui, Camila Cabello, Dinah Jane Hansen, Normani Hamilton, and Ally Brooke Hernandez), and we chatted about their most challenging and favorite cover songs they performed on the Fox series, and if they would ever collaborate with the other group that got noticed--the boys of Emblem 3!

What was the most challenging cover song you did while on the X Factor?
Dinah: I think, "Let It Be." We had a story behind it too because that was the week the kids passed away at school »

When YouTube banned David Bowie's music video for "The Next Day," it seemed ironic, since the site is normally the best place to see once-banned videos. But YouTube says it's cool with Bowie now – that banning his racy, bloody, religious-themed video was a mistake. While the video has been reinstated, the flap reminds us of other music videos that were initially banned. Here are some of our favorites:
"Dead End Street" by the Kinks
In 1966, an early music video depicting the band members as top hat-wearing pallbearers was deemed tasteless by the BBC – even though the "corpse" jumped out of the coffin, apparently alive and well – resulting in the BBC's first pop video ban.

The 12-day Cannes gathering is actually four events in one: the festival, the market, the media binge and an international schmooze-a-palooza, where people from the other three groups can meet with colleagues.
There is one hallowed tradition that caters to all four needs: The Cannes party.
These events are often tied to a film’s global launch, but there is no correlation between the success of a film and the success of its fete.

For 25 years the magazine has chronicled the births, marriages and lovely homes of the stars – and it has changed the media's agenda
So many contracts have been signed and so many celebrity parties photographed since the first edition of Hello! went on sale in Britain 25 years ago, it is hard to pick out the most celebrated. Would it perhaps be the wedding of Paul and Sheryl Gascoigne in 1996, or perhaps one of Elton John's regular white tie and tiara affairs? Only a few of the big ones, such as Madonna's marriage to Guy Ritchie at Skibo castle in 2000, have eluded its pages. On Wednesday, however, the magazine's joint editors, Rosie Nixon and Ruth Sullivan, will be throwing a party of their own in London "to say thank you to those who have contributed to the magazine over the years".
"It is going to be a glamorous cocktail party and very exciting, »

In Glee’s fourth season finale, “All or Nothing,” the New Directions kids head to Regionals while Kurt and Blaine head to dinner with…Meredith Baxter and Patty Duke? As previously reported, Baxter, most famous for her role in the ’80s sitcom Family Ties, and Duke play a lesbian couple who crosses paths with the teenage twosome. “Jan, Patty Duke, meets Blaine in a jewelry store and says, ‘Why don’t you come have dinner with us?’” Baxter explains, which gives a chance for the younger couple to get a peek at what commitment looks likes years down the road. »

Good afternoon everyone!
Tegan and Sara will be featured in June’s Glamour magazine. Who’s excited?
If you’re obsessed with Arrested Development (like I am) consider taking a tour (albeit a short tour) of the original Bluth family’s frozen banana stand. There’s always money in the banana stand.
Here’s a sneak peek of tomorrow night’s intense Grey’s Anatomy.
If you happened to watch last night’s E:60 on Espn you might have heard Jane Lynch’s voice narrating a story about a young girl who wanted to become a cheerleader. When I think of cheerleading I always think of Lynch.

Madonna's style transformations have become mainstays in the fashion world's collective memory. Who could forget the pouffy dresses from her "Like A Virgin" days or her geisha-inspired look in the "Nothing Really Matters" video?
Between those iconic moments, however, Madonna took inspiration from a very worthy muse: Eva Perón. Not only did the pop star play the late Argentinian first lady in the 1996 film adaptation of "Evita," but the star also took on Perón's fashion sense off-screen.
In honor of the real Evita's birthday today (May 7), we're taking a look back at Madonna in one of her Perón-esque get-ups from the movie's premiere. Quite a far cry from the ensemble the singer sported at last night's punk-themed Met Gala, no?

When we hear the name "Evita," we immediately think of Madonna's infamous portrayal of the Argentinean first lady in the 1996 biopic -- especially that epic farewell scene on the balcony (cue the tears).
But the actual Evita, or Eva Perón, was just as beautiful as her on-screen counterpart. Born on May 7 in a rural Argentina village in 1919 as Eva Duarte, she came from a poor family and aspired to be an actress. She moved to Buenos Aires at age 15, where she met Colonel Juan Perón at a charity event. They were married the following year.
Her compassion and dedication to helping the poor and needy in Argentina allowed Perón to develop a reputation as a spiritual and down-to-earth symbol of the country. She also made great strides for feminism, as she refused to take the back seat during her husband's presidency. Fittingly, she earned the official title of "Spiritual Leader of the Nation. »

As anyone with even a passing familiarity with Glee — or iTunes charts — is aware, the show knows its way around a tribute episode, a.k.a. an episode where all of the music is from one artist or film. A ‘tribute episode’ also typically means there are seven or eight songs in the hour-long dramedy, as opposed to the usual standard of four. Great news for those of us who are watching the show for the karaoke! (I can’t be the only one dancing around my living room to Madonna or Lady Gaga Glee covers, right?)

Andrea Riseborough is a chameleon actress who makes her mark in everything she does, from Madonna's "W.E." as fashionplate Wallis Simpson and Tom Cruise's seductive housemate/overseer in "Oblivion" to terrorist in James Marsh's elegantly crafted Ira thriller "Shadow Dancer," which played the Sundance Fest in January. The movie is available now on iTunes and On Demand and hits theaters May 31 (Rotten Tomatoes reviews, running at 93%, are here). Marsh is a doc and feature director I always take seriously, from the exquisite style of Oscar-winning Philippe Petit doc "Man on Wire" (2008) and his humorous "Project Nim" (2011, my interview with him here) to his taut installment of the "Red Riding" trilogy (2009). "Shadow Dancer," while it keeps its scope small, does not disappoint. Gorgeously photographed on scrubby Belfast locations, the movie keeps its focus close on the pale faces of a family in 1993 trapped on their own precarious tightrope »

Feature Simon Brew 3 May 2013 - 07:03
It's a risky business, filmmaking. Simon looks back at some bold, expensive 1990s movies where the gambles didn't quite pay off...
This summer's blockbuster season has got off to a startling start, with Iron Man 3 being widely praised for its willingness to rip up the rule book a little, as it continues the story of Tony Stark.
In fact, there's a subset of modern blockbusters - Nolan films, some X-Men features for instance - that are garnering increasing praise for taking bold choices with the material. That they're wagering a lot of movie studio money on projects and stories that once upon a time would have struggled to get through the system.
However, we'd argue that the 1990s was rich with such gambles too, it's just most of them never really made quite the levels of cash we're seeing now. So, here's a »

John and his husband David Furnish sat down for an exclusive interview with Extra's Terri Seymour, and the "Tiny Dancer" singer explained that he and Madonna coincidentally ran into each other at a restaurant in France in the summertime.
"She came in, and I sent over a note," said John. "She was very gracious. I apologized profusely because what I said should never have appeared in public. She accepted our apology, and then we bought her dinner. That's over and done with. She was really great about it."
Furnish added, "We don't believe in putting negativity out in the world, both of us were embarrassed when all that stuff came out. But you've got to put all that behind you and just go forward with the positivity. »

From movies based on real life stories to fictional based movies, movies involving sports have proven to be inspirational, often timeless pieces that will touch your inner athlete time and time again. I have compiled a list of some of the most inspirational movies that got rave reviews from sports critics along with those who have never played a day in their life.
This is a movie based on the idea of turning something that is essentially broken into a winner. This movie was the first of a trilogy. It has also since been re-made in order stay current and featured Hollywood mega-star, Billy Bob Thornton.
The original movie, made in 1976, starred Walter Matthau and Tatum O’Neil and became a classic in its own right. Matthau plays a down on his luck alcoholic who needs some extra money to support his habit. O’Neil, the daughter of his estranged ex-girlfriend, »
Rupert Everett has long been a martyr to his passions, but lately he's had something else on his mind. Victoria Coren, a lifelong fan, joins him for dinner to talk about his excoriating memoirs, his portrayal of Oscar Wilde and his urge to be a serious man
When Rupert Everett dies, he won't have a funeral. He has given this serious thought.
"I'll go on the bonfire," he says. "That's what I'd like."
At the risk of spoiling his cheerful plan, I feel obliged to point out that it's against the law to put corpses on bonfires.
"Yes, but it shouldn't be," says the actor, irritably squeezing lemon into his tea. "I'm sure someone can put me on there, if I've just died normally. I wanted to put my dad on the bonfire. But nobody else wanted to, so we didn't."
It feels awfully strange to be sitting in a restaurant with Rupert Everett, »

Sarah Jessica Parker spent a sweet afternoon in NYC with her twin daughters, Tabitha and Loretta Broderick, yesterday. She headed out two separate times, meeting up with the girls on the street in a pair of Current/Elliott skinny printed jeans before heading home and emerging again in a different outfit. Sjp has been back to her normal Big Apple routine after taking a trip to Toronto late last month. While there, she linked up with Blake Lively to help launch Canada's first-ever Target store. In addition to showing support for the retail chain, Sarah Jessica will soon be opening up her closet for charity. She is set to auction off a few pairs of designer shoes to benefit NYC's Laguardia Arts High School, along with footwear owned by Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, and Madonna. Sarah Jessica is also gearing up to return to the small screen, as it was »

Tonight, MTV will broadcast its 21st annual Movie Awards. Truth: Twenty years ago, the golden popcorn for Best Movie went to A Few Good Men (following that: Menace II Society, Pulp Fiction, and Se7en). Safe to say, the show’s tone has changed pretty dramatically from those edgy early days when Dennis Miller hosted and Denzel Washington won Best Male Performance for Malcolm X. (I personally trace the trajectory shift back to the short-lived decision to create a Best Sandwich in a Movie category in 1996.) Yet even as the show’s gotten more mainstream (read: Twilight- and Hunger Games-saturated »
