Julia Roberts Rocks a Bangin' Hairstyle on Set of The Secret in Their Eyes—See the Pic!

29 January 2015 7:02 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Loving the new look, Julia Roberts! The actress debuted a different 'do while on the set of her new film The Secret in Their Eyes, and although we're a fan of her brunette and banged tresses, it's also very possible that Roberts is rocking a wig for the movie (but at least now we know that if she did decide to switch it up, this is a good alternative to her already-lovely locks). Julia also got a sweet visit from her hubby Daniel Moder, who stopped by the set in Pasadena, Calif., to hang out with his ladylove while she took a break from shooting. Billy Ray's remake of the 2009 Academy Award winner for foreign-language (directed by Juan Jose Campanella) is based on the Eduardo Sacheri novel »

Colin Farrell Says ‘Well-Hung’ Ewan McGregor 'Should Be Proud'

29 January 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Colin Farrell isn't ashamed to talk about his co-star Ewan McGregor's private parts.

In a new interview with Nylon Guys, the 38-year-old True Detective star -- who worked with Ewan in 2007's Cassandra's Dream -- is making it clear that the Scottish actor's not lacking down there.

"I don't think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well-hung would -- or should -- or could be," Farrell jokes to the magazine. "I think that's the greatest demonstration of his innate humility, that he doesn't wear it like a badge of honor."

Photos: Stars In Their Underwear

Ewan, 43, is looking as handsome as ever on the cover of Nylon Guys, in which he also opens up about hanging with A-listers Angelina Jolie and Jude Law in the late '90s in London, when the actors were all on the brink of hitting the big time.

Joe Roth: We Should Nurture a New Generation of Movie Stars

28 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This column is part of Variety’s Broken Hollywood feature. For more execs and their opinions on the state of Hollywood, click here.

I think maybe Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio are the last versions of movie stars. Put them in a movie, and people want to come see them. What we have now is what I call “conditional movie stars,” because they have not been given broader roles. The only time they are stars is when they are in a situation where the audience knows how they are going to behave. Stars are important because nobody is going to take a risk on an expensive movie if the actor doesn’t have the right pedigree.

There’s a difference between a celebrity and a star. People don’t go to see celebrities in movies. They go to see stars. On one hand, it’s a reflection of the culture. »

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

Eddie Redmayne isn't one of those actors who is too cool to get starstruck.

Oscar Acting Races: 5 Box Office Musings

26 January 2015 8:42 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to offer some random box office facts about the acting races. The big Oscar box office story continues to be American Sniper’s unprecedented success, so much so that Bradley Cooper garnered a shoutout last night at the SAG Awards despite not being nominated. I’m starting to feel the Best Picture category might not be the only three-way race as we wade deeper into Phase 2. Numbers and statistics junkie that I imagine myself to be, I was curious to see whether the past fifteen years’ worth of box office numbers in the acting categories could help us gleam anything about potential outcomes. Spoiler alert: not much, but enjoy the following random tidbits below. 

As it stands, Bradley, Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall (improbably, really) and Meryl Streep hold the title as the highest grossing nominees from their respective races. How might this help Bradley; well, let's take a »

The Best & Worst Dressed at the 2015 SAG Awards

26 January 2015 4:22 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sunday night's SAG Awards was a big night for fashion, but which stylish stars came out on top, and which ones completely missed the mark?

Fashion expert and The Real co-host Jeannie Mai joins Et from Miami -- where she co-hosted the Miss Universe Pageant -- and is breaking down the best and worst dressed of the night.

Menswear with a feminine twist was a big theme, with both Emma Stone and Julia Roberts making our best dressed lists in their suit-style creations. Emma looked fantastic as usual (even if the sheer train nearly killed Naomi Watts) in a Dior couture tuxedo gown, while Julia rocked a shapely Givenchy tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit. Both looks were age-appropriate, and definitely fun, unexpected choices for the red carpet.

Rounding out the best-dressed is Jennifer Aniston in a plunging vintage Galliano gown, which showed off her famous yoga-toned body to perfection thanks to its »

5 Ways Actors Over 50 Are Shaking Up Their Careers to Avoid the Johnny Depp Curse

26 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 51-year-old actor adds another flop to his already long streak, but other actors aren’t betting their careers on only box-office bankability

Johnny Depp could be considered one of Hollywood’s biggest stars on the planet, but he hasn’t had a hit at the box office in ages and “Mortdecai” has just been added to the list of bombs.

The actor plays the Wolf in Disney’s ensemble musical “Into the Woods,” but his last leading man hit was 2011’s installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Last year’s “Transcendence” fizzled, as did 2013’s “The Lone Ranger” and »

Emma Watson Is Disney’s Belle In 'Beauty And The Beast,' Adam Sandler's First Netflix Movies Saddles Up Cast & More

26 January 2015 9:55 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Disney evidently is eager to keep ruining your fond memories of their animated classics with big screen, live-action do-overs or prequels no one asked for. Last year we got "Sleeping Beauty" predecessor "Maleficent," in a couple of months they'll release "Cinderella," and now "Beauty And The Beast" is on the way. The studio announced that Emma Watson will play Belle in this new version. The actress was previously attached to an iteration that would've seen Guillermo del Toro direct, but which never got off the ground. Instead, Bill Condon ("The Fifth Estate," "Dreamgirls") will get behind the camera, with production set to begin later this year. Julia Roberts will produce and star in a remake of the documentary "Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around The World." The movie tells the real life story about how a Make-a-Wish event for Miles Scott — a 5-year-old boy diagnosed with leukemia — wanting to be Batman. »

Mark Ruffalo Tweets SAG Awards Acceptance Speech from Bed in London

Mark Ruffalo couldn’t make it to Sunday night’s SAG Awards ceremony to accept in person his prize for outstanding male actor in a TV movie or miniseries, but thanks to Twitter, he was able to share a makeshift acceptance speech from his bed in London. He’s currently across the pond filming “Now You See Me: The Second Act.”

Ruffalo — who beat out Billy Bob Thornton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adrien Brody and Richard Jenkins in the category — wrote that his wife and children woke him up with the news four hours before he had to be back on set.

Ha ha ha! Sunny and my kids just woke me up to tell me I won a SAG award. Have to be at work in 4 hours. Thank you! @SAGawards

Julia Roberts Will Produce and Star in 'Batkid' Movie

26 January 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Miles Scott captured the world's attention in November 2013 when the then-5-year-old stormed the streets of San Francisco as Batkid, fulfilling his Make-a-Wish Foundation dream of becoming Batman as he battled leukemia in real life. Apparently, he also caught the eye of Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts, who is set to produce and star in a feature film about Miles.

Deadline reports that Roberts is spearheading a dramatic adaptation of the documentary "Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World." The crowdfunded flick, which just had its premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival in Utah this weekend, was directed by Dana Nachman and revealed the behind-the-scenes work that went into fulfilling Miles's wish, which brought together tens of thousands of people to transform San Francisco into Gotham, and even moved President Barack Obama to get involved.

The story generated international headlines, prompting Nachman to make the documentary, and eventually leading Roberts »

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

26 January 2015 7:37 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »
