It's only been a few months, but Sean Penn and Charlize Theron's love train is chugging along at full speed.

The last time we saw Charlize Theron was in 2012, when she was being a total douchebag in space for Ridley Scott.s Prometheus and a total bitch in the woods for Rupert Sanders. Snow White and the Huntsman. And before that, she was a self-centered grunt in Jason Reitman.s Young Adult. Luckily, the next project she.s eyeing features a far more sympathetic woman at its core. She and her producer partners at Denver and Delilah Films have acquired the 2008 novel Everything Nice, from author Ellen Shanman, and Theron may also take the lead role. Universal snatched up the project based on a pitch, and this should be a fine balance for the busier movies in their 2015 release schedule, including Jurassic World and Fast & Furious 7. The novel is largely comedic and very female-centered, focusing on Michaela "Mike" Edwards, an advertising executive who finds herself in the middle of an »
Exclusive: Universal Pictures has acquired a pitch inspired by the Ellen Shanman novel Everything Nice that will be written by Karen Croner as a potential star vehicle for Charlize Theron. Theron will produce with her Denver And Delilah Films partners Beth Kono and A.J. Dix.

The hope is for her to play Michaela, an advertising exec who gets fired and takes on the only job she can get, teaching life skills to »

Way back in September, our own Samantha Wilson quite sagely compared the first teaser for Olivier Dahan’s Grace of Monaco to “the world’s most expensive perfume commercial,” a little slice of action that is “what you expect a princess’ world to look like — rich and opulent.” The Nicole Kidman-starring Grace Kelly biopic was presented as an opera-infused tale of, well, just like a lot of sparkles and shine and fuzzy filming, sort of as if Dahan is someone who really likes watching that Charlize Theron commercial for Dior in slow motion but then wanted to spice that look up by filming stuff his own production through six layers of cellophane. In short, not great. But after some behind the scenes drama involving Dahan’s final cut, the apparent demands of Harvey Weinstein, and a release date shove, Grace of Monaco is finally set to hit theaters with a possibly tweaked look and feel.

"The 'Wickedly' Talented Adele Dazeem"
Travolta’s completely off base introduction made him an instant punch line of the night, and John Travolta, Idina Menzel, Adele Dazeem and Adele Dazim were all trending on Twitter during Sunday’s ceremony.
Menzel, who performed the Oscar-winning song “Let It Go” from Frozen, did not let the introduction bother her, as she went on stage and delivered a brilliant performance of the massive hit song. She has not commented on the flub.
John Travolta Releases Statement
After a days of ridicule, Travolta released a statement on the now infamous introduction, saying, “I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought…What would Idina Menzel say? She’d say, ‘Let it go, »
The battle between Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair continues to heat up. While The Gossip Table reported that the actress skipped the magazine’s annual post-Oscars bash, she wasn’t the only to opt out of the event. Paltrow’s publicist pulled his long-reaching strings and convinced Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock to pass on the event. That’s right, Goop’s got power.
Yesterday, The Gossip Table spilled the dish on Madonna‘s super secret Oscars party. During the private party, Madge was spotted dancing with Miley Cyrus. The two are reportedly an It Bff pairing following their Unplugged performance together. But isn’t, like, Cyrus the same age as Lourdes? Awkward…

Jennifer Lawrence may not have made history as the first actress to win back-to-back Oscars, but she will certainly go down in history as the actress who fell at the Oscars two years in a row.

While stepping onto the red carpet, Lawrence was waving to fans when she tripped over an orange traffic cone. She fell forward, grabbing onto a member of her entourage for balance before getting herself back up with some help from her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. Unfortunately, the incident was caught on camera by E! News and other outlets, and she was asked about it during a majority of her red carpet interviews.
“I tripped on a cone…Shouldn’t have those laying around. I’m the same color as a cone, you can’t do that,” Lawrence joked to CNN’s Piers Morgan.

On Oscar night, it’s a celebration of the film industry and an awards ceremony – billed as the most elegant and culturally important of them all. Unfortunately, multiple times at the 86th annual Academy Awards, the stars who turned out for the event didn’t always put their most graceful foot forward.
2014 Oscar Fails
John Travolta’s butchering of Broadway star Idina Menzel's name was perhaps the most viral Oscar flub from Sunday night. The Grease actor was up on stage to introduce Menzel, who was singing “Let It Go” from Frozen – the song that ultimately won for Best Original Song. “Please welcome the ‘Wicked’-ly talented,” began Travolta, making a reference to Menzel’s best-known part of playing Elphaba on Broadway’s Wicked. “One and only, Adele Dazim.”
In the aftermath of Travolta’s gaffe, Twitter parodies emerged for names sounding like Adele Dazim. There’s also an Internet app on Slate. »

Each year as the Oscar ceremony comes to a close, the after parties are just gearing up as Hollywood luminaries celebrate the official end of the awards season. First stop is always the Governors Ball, which is held in a ballroom a few escalator rides away from the Dolby Theatre.
Guests moved around a garden-like setting that Jeffrey Kurland and event producer Cheryl Cecchetto created to allow a flow of people since the priorities are schmoozing and eating, in that order. Another high priority: listening to the music of John Legend.
The “12 Years a Slave” and Fox Searchlight teams, under co-presidents Stephen Gilula and Nancy Utley, celebrated their big wins with a mixture of joy and relief, with all paying tribute to Steve McQueen. “It’s thrilling to be recognized in such a great year with so many terrific movies,” Gilula told Variety. “It’s great art and great entertainment, »
