Could the secret to Charlize Theron's amazing looks be…cheese?! Probably not, but she sure loves a good cheese sandwich. "Who doesn't love a cheesy sandwich?" the Oscar told me at the premiere of her new thriller Dark Places (available now on DirecTV and in theaters Aug. 7). "You just gotta go with good ol' gouda. Just good ol' gouda and good bread." Why all this cheese talk? Because when I talked to Theron the day before she said that one of the best things about turning 40 on Aug. 7 is that she doesn't fret over the same things when she was 20. "I'm so happy to be in my 40s and not be in my 20s and worried if I fit into my skinny jeans or whether »
The good, the bad and the cleavage-baring Jenner sisters! From the stylish streets to glamorous red carpet events, Hollywood's famous fashionistas stepped out this week in their favorite couture creations. Kylie Jenner stole the spotlight at a "Paper Towns" screening in Los Angeles, where she and sister Kendall Jenner turned up to show support for their close friend and the film's star, Cara Delevingne. The 17-year-old high school grad, who was rocking blue hair for the occasion, turned heads in a nude bra top, matching sheer skirt and a suede jacket. While we weren't digging Kylie's racy outfit, Kendall looked gorgeous in two-piece burgundy look from Zimmermann, featuring a keyhole detail and double slits in the skirt. Newly single Charlize Theron had us scratching our heads when she stepped out at the "Dark Places" in Los Angeles in a Christian Dior mini -- a rather childish choice for her big night. »

The actress is the ostensible lead of the year’s highest-grossing movie, yet she’s not being celebrated as such
Every summer, the same complaint is levelled at Hollywood, and it’s a sound one: the blockbusters lack strong female lead characters.
This year’s season started on a hopeful note, with Charlize Theron eclipsing Tom Hardy in Mad Max: Fury Road, and becoming the film’s true action hero. What followed in its wake hasn’t been terrible – by Hollywood standards – with the female-led Spy, Trainwreck and Pitch Perfect 2 all making loads of cash.

Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are getting a new neighbor. Chloe Moretz, the teen actress who recently toplined Ya tearjerker If I Stay and broke out back in 2010 with Kick-Ass, has joined the talented trio in Neighbors 2. Nicholas Stoller is back in the director’s chair for the follow-up to last year’s summer smash hit, working from a script by Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien.
The first film centered on a young married couple (Rogen and Byrne) who moved into a seemingly pleasant neighborhood with their newborn daughter only to come up against the college fraternity next door, headed by charismatic but cold-hearted Teddy (Efron).
More News From The Web
Plot details for the sequel are being kept under wraps, but Moretz makes sense for the role of a sorority sister, perhaps a similar head honcho to Efron’s Teddy, who butts heads with the central couple. »

The original revolved around a couple whose lives are turned upside-down after declaring war on the fraternity that moved in next door. The sequel’s plot is unknown, as well as the character Moretz will be playing.
Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver will produce under their Point Grey Pictures banner. Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien will serve as executive producers alongside Good Universe’s Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake. Writers include Cohen, O’Brien, Rogen, Stoller and Goldberg.
Moretz has made a career out of doing darker, edgier roles such as Hit Girl in the “Kick Ass” franchise and “The Equalizer. »

These actors bulked up, slimmed down and puffed out in service of their work … and perhaps they shouldn’t have, when the only results were film flops
When popular actors make the bold choice to alter their appearance for a role, people take notice. Often the effort pays off: Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro and Charlize Theron all won Oscars after transforming themselves for their art. Unfortunately, for some stars, the work ends up being in service of a project that doesn’t merit the gamble.

After the very popular “Serial” podcast encouraged conversations about the U.S. criminal justice system and the wrongfully accused, “Dark Places” scribe Gillian Flynn presented her second book-to-film premiere Tuesday night at Harmony Gold in Hollywood.
The bestselling novel circles around new details appearing 30 years after a mysterious family murder in a rural Kansas town in the 1980s.
“This story gives you an opportunity to re-examine people that are incarcerated or in prison or wrongfully accused, and hopefully what it does is encourage people to take one more look,” said producer Matt Rhodes.
The author, who was not the screenwriter on the project, said that she feels her readers will be satisfied with the adaptation. Before the rights were sold, Flynn had a sit-down with writer-director Gilles Paquet-Brenner, and determined that he had “the right idea” adapting the page-turner to film — by not turning the mystery novel into a cheesy horror movie. »

The drama is based on the memoir of the same name by journalist Susannah Cahalan, who underwent a harrowing medical battle just as her career was taking off.
Moretz has been cast as Cahalan in a film that will explore how she suddenly started hearing voices and exhibiting violent outbursts.
When Cahalan slips into a coma, it's up to her doctor to help bring her back from the brink to rebuild her life.
Producer Charlize Theron's company Denver and Delilah and Broad Green Pictures jointly announced that Perry has been cast as Cahalan's New York Post editor.
Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn has not only thought about writing a sequel to her bestselling thriller, but she even has some ideas where the story would pick up. "I think we'd have to fast forward," Flynn told me last night at the premiere of Dark Places, the movie adaptation of her novel of the same name starring Charlize Theron. "I think we'd have to go hit the teen years with [the] child, the Baby Dunne, and see where they are." At the end of Gone Girl, Amy Dunne reveals that she is pregnant. "If [director David Fincher] signs back on and the cast is willing again, I would go totally back in that world," Flynn said. "It's not an easy world to go back »

Sneak Peek new cover at from the upcoming "Mad Max: Fury Road" Blu-ray release, plus take another look @ the film, from the movie review site "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca,:
Michael Stevens For 'The Good':
"'Mad Max: Fury Road', director George Miller's sardonic $150 million budgeted 3D demented demolition derby of a movie, throws everything to the wind and cuts to the chase for an insanely wild 2 hour ride...
"...in a ferociously adrenalized crash 'n burn', petrol-pumped speed-demon of a movie that leaves his previous "Mad Max" trilogy in the dust...
"The new film gets into gear early on, revved-up by grotesque, dystopian death cult-followers, scrambling like vile Rat Patrols through the Namibian desert...
"...accompanied by explosive set pieces, broken CG bodies and scattered car debris.
"Like a cranked-up 'Cirque Du Soleil', led by a pounding dirge and amplified death-metal rock music ...

Could you imagine Charlize Theron playing Christian Grey's Mrs. Robinson-like former lover in Fifty Shades Darker? Well, don't think too hard about it because it doesn't sound like that's happening anytime soon. I caught up with the Oscar winner last night at the premiere of her new thriller Dark Places (in theaters on Aug. 7) to find out the truth behind the persistent rumor that she's been cast in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel as Elena Lincoln, a friend of Christian Grey's mother who first introduced him to S&M when he was only 15 years old.

President Obama is hellbent on keeping Jon Stewart at “The Daily Show.” “I can’t believe you’re leaving before me,” Obama said Tuesday during his final appearance on Stewart’s Comedy Central show. “In fact, I’m issuing a new executive order that Jon Stewart cannot leave the show.” The President quickly joked that his new order is already “being challenged in the courts.” Stewart, who will leave “The Daily Show” next month after more than 15 years, pressed Obama on the recent Iran nuclear deal and the issues facing veterans as they try to get medical treatment at Va hospitals. »

Charlize Theron is ''so happy'' to be turning 40 next month. The 'Mad Max: Fury Road' star, who split from Sean Penn in May after 18 months of dating, insists she isn't dreading her upcoming milestone birthday on August 7. She said: ''Forties rock. People are so concerned for me. It's okay. It's such a weird thing that we put so much... I think especially for women. I'm so happy to be in my 40s and not be in my 20s and worried about whether I fit into my skinny jeans or whether I will be able to get into that club. It's just so nice to be in love with your couch and make cheesy sandwiches and just enjoy life, it's been great.'' The 'Dark Places' star, who has three-year-old son Jackson, also claims she has no special plans in place to mark the occasion. Asked how she is planning to celebrate, »
