Others in this year's top 10: Robert Downey, Jr., Leonardo DiCaprio, Bullock, Denzel Washington, Angelina Jolie, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and Bradley Cooper.

Jennifer Lawrence and What It Means to Be Hollywood’s Top Female Star

29 October 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As we revealed on Monday, Jennifer Lawrence topped Vulture’s Most Valuable Stars List this year, and although we only started compiling these lists in 2012, the fact that a woman has topped it for the first time this year seems like cause for rejoicing. How often has an actress been perceived as the biggest star in Hollywood? Not that often. Look to a more established metric: The Quigley Publishing Co. has been publishing its Motion Picture Exhibitors’ Poll of the Top 10 Box-Office Draws since the early 1930s. Since 1967, a woman has topped it only three times — Lawrence in its most recent poll, Sandra Bullock in 2009, and Julia Roberts in 1999. That’s a lot of dudes.Of course, once upon a time, actresses were typically bigger ticket-sellers than men: In the 1930s, Shirley Temple regularly topped the Quigley poll, while Julie Andrews and Doris Day pretty much split the 1960s »

Julia Roberts Says She Took a "Big Risk" By Not Getting a Facelift

28 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Julia Roberts is not willing to go under the knife, even if it affects her career.In a new interview with the UK's You magazine, the "Normal Heart" star, who turns 47-years-old today, opens up about her decision to forgo cosmetic surgery as she gets older. "By Hollywood standards, I guess I've already taken a big risk in not having had a facelift," she tells the mag.  "I've told Lancome that I want to be an aging model," adds Roberts, who has served as an ambassador for the beauty brand since 2009. "They have to keep me for at least five more years until I'm over 50."Julia's comments about aging come just days after another actress over 40 has found herself in the spotlight for her appearance. Renee Zellweger was the target of some serious internet scrutiny after she showed up to the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards looking a little different. »

Rome Film Review: ‘The Maias: Scenes from Romantic Life’

25 October 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It wouldn’t be strictly accurate to say that “The Maias: Scenes from Romantic Life” requires viewers to watch paint dry, but there’s certainly a lot of it at rest in Joao Botelho’s boldly stylized Portuguese costumer. Favoring undisguised matte backdrops and an arch performance style to counter the florid melodrama of Eca de Queiroz’s 19th-century source novel, this highbrow soap opera of star-crossed passion, economic downfall and other aristocratic mysteries of Lisbon has visual intrigue to spare, but a distinct case of emotional torpor limits it to festival-curiosity status. To be filed — if not necessarily ranked — between comparable works by Raul Ruiz and Eric Rohmer, Botelho’s film opened on Sept. 11 in its home country and has since played the Rio and Rome fests.

“It seems that this embroidery will never end,” observes one character to another midway through Botelho’s lengthy film. He may be »

Meryl Streep's Set to Sing Off-Key (& Other News)

22 October 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here with some Streeptastic news.

Meryl Streep has just signed on to play Florence Foster Jenkins in an upcoming Stephen Frears film. Florence will follow the eponymous protagonist, a New York heiress whose lack of musical talent didn’t stop her from pursuing a career in opera in the early twentieth century. This should be good news for us Streep fans because it means we may get three back-to-back-to-back musically-centered Meryl films in a row. Remember she’s set to play Maria Callas for Mike Nichols’ HBO adaptation of Terence McNally’s Master Class while she’s currently filming Ricky and the Flash, the Diablo Cody-penned Jonathan Demme film about an aging rock-star. More thrillingly, the Frears/Demme/Nichols triple punch is the closest we’ve gotten in a while to Streep committing to working with top-tier directing talent (no offense to David Frankel, Philippa Lloyd and Philip Noyce »

Matthew McConaughey was honoured with the 28th American Cinematheque Award at the annual ceremony in Beverly Hills last night (October 21).

The 44-year-old Oscar-winning actor, who is currently promoting Christopher Nolan's sci-fi drama Interstellar, was accompanied by his wife Camila Alves and two of their three young children, son Levi and daughter Vida.

McConaughey was also joined by former on-screen love interests Kate Hudson, Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon. Current Interstellar co-stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and director Nolan were also on hand at the ceremony to support the star.

Nolan took to the stage at the event - hosted by Jimmy Kimmel - to praise McConaughy's talent, enthusing: "I'm not a believer in the 'McConaissance'.

The 5 Best ‘Pygmalion’ Movies Since ‘My Fair Lady’

21 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When the movie version of My Fair Lady premiered — 50 years ago today — it was an adaptation of a stage show that was a musical remake of a play that was loosely based on an ancient myth. Once again: “originality” is not that big a deal and never has been. Proof has continued in the legacy of all these properties in the half century since. Even now on television there is a sitcom so admittedly based on Pygmalion that the characters are named Eliza Dooley and Henry Higgs. The fact that most people call this show, Selfie, a modern take on the musical rather than George Bernard Shaw‘s earlier drama is not a surprise. Different generations have their reference point. In She’s All That, for instance, Rachel Leigh Cook’s character says, “I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. You know, except for the whole hooker thing.” She »

Julia Roberts Wants her Kids to Stand Up for Themselves

Julia Roberts couldn't help but be impressed by the teenage gay rights activists she met on Friday night at Glsen's Respect Awards.

"These are the heroes, what they deal with, how brave they are, how well spoken, how articulate, the way they champion themselves and their causes is incredible to me," the Oscar winner told me at the gala at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. "I was not like this when I was in high school."

What was she like in high school? "I couldn't put a complex sentence together much less present myself in an open forum," she said.
