'The Americans' Recap: Church of the Poison Mind

1 hour ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Sunday, they say, is the "Lord's day." But perhaps Philip and Elizabeth should have taken a page out of "Clark" and Martha's marriage playbook and opted for a "lazy morning" instead of going to church mere hours after infiltrating a contra training camp. Elizabeth, as cold-blooded and atheistic as ever, scoffs at the longhaired pastor's proclamations of God's love. Philip, on the other hand, is still reeling over the latest batch of innocent lives claimed during the raid. He may not have been raised to believe in hell, but he's »

Three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep has revealed that, as a student, she thought she was "too ugly to be an actress".

Speaking at Indiana University Bloomington, Streep said: "I think I was probably like every other girl who puts on a princess dress and expects everyone to pay full and total attention. And most of us grow out of that. [At Vassar College] I was always in plays, but I thought it was vain to be an actress. Plus, I thought I was too ugly to be an actress. Glasses weren't fabulous then."

This will mark Zadan and Meron’s third consecutive year as Oscar producers. In the United States, the 87th Academy Awards ceremony will air live on ABC on Oscar Sunday, February 22, 2015. Last March 2, the Zadan- and Meron-produced 2014 Oscar telecast brought back Ellen DeGeneres, whose performance as Oscar host drew mixed reviews — some loved the pizza; others hated it. Besides pizza delivery, the Oscar telecast also featured the presence of veterans Kim Novak and Sidney Poitier; musical performances by U2, Pharrell Williams, and Idina Menzel (aka "Adele Nazeem," as per John Travolta); in addition to a tribute to The Wizard of Oz performed by »

Meryl Streep: I Thought I Was Too Ugly to Be an Actress

22 April 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Gasp! Meryl Streep is widely considered the greatest actress in Hollywood, but according to the three-time Oscar winner, becoming a film star seemed very daunting at first -- and for an unthinkable reason. "I think I was probably like every other girl who puts on a princess dress and expects everyone to pay full and total attention. And most of us grow out of that. I was always in plays, but I thought it was vain to be an actress," the 64-year-old said while accepting an honorary [...] »

New teaser for The Giver gives us the same footage but with a slight twist

22 April 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

When the first teaser arrived for The Giver, many noted the similarities with a number of young adult movies from recent years despite the award-winning novel having been published twenty years ago. It still looked intriguing with a large cast that includes Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Swift, and newcomer Brenton Thwaites. But, fans of Lois Lowry's novel noticed the trailer seemed to ignore a major aspect of the story which is that all characters are »

Watch the New Trailer for The Giver

22 April 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Giver doesn’t come out for almost four months, and the anticipation is starting to get to me. In their latest effort to drive me crazy,  the Weinstein Company has released a new sixty second trailer for the film. I don’t think there’s any new footage, but this time they have gotten the tone just right. I had my doubts for awhile after the first trailer, but they have managed to convince me. I’ve even come around on the Taylor Swift casting decision. I think she’ll do just fine as Rosemary. Plus, can anyone play grumpy/wise like Jeff Bridges can? The answer is no. No, they cannot.

The Giver will be in theaters August 15, 2014. It is directed by Phillip Noyce and also stars Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard, Katie Holmes, Meryl Streep, Cameron Monaghan, and Odeya Rush. It hits U.S. theaters on August 15.

I thought I was too ugly to be an actress, says Meryl Streep

22 April 2014 4:22 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Washington, April 22: Meryl Streep has admitted that she thought she was too "ugly to be an actress".

During her honorary doctoral degree acceptance speech at Indiana University, the 64-year-old said though she was always in plays, she thought it was vain to be an actress, E! Online reported.

The Oscar winner continued saying that the reason she has a career at her age is because she achieved success in her life later, when she was 40.

Giving advice to young women, Streep said that she used to hate her nose, but not anymore and girls shouldn't bother about their weight so much as there are better things in life,. »

Watch: Brenton Thwaites is the Receiver in Short New 'The Giver' Spot

21 April 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following the recent original horror flick Oculus, we're still due for quite the dose of newcomer Brenton Thwaites this year. The young actor leads the sci-fi indie The Signal, has a supporting role as Prince Phillip in Maleficent and stars alongside Jeff Bridges in the adaptation of the revered sci-fi novel The Giver. Now a new trailer has arrived for the film that also features Meryl Streep and Katie Holmes, combining some footage from the original teaser with some of the new bits that popped up in the recent featurette. While the book is held in high esteem, we're not sure if the film can offer anything fresh in the Ya market. Here's the new trailer for Phillip Noyce's The Giver straight from The Weinstein Company: The Giver is directed by Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Saint, Catch a Fire, Salt) and adapted by newcomer Michael Mitnick. »

New Trailer and Featurette for 'The Giver' Starring Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep

21 April 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Weinstein Co. has released a new 60-second trailer for The Giver and I also have for you a featurette for the young adult adaptation that was released last week. The fact it's a young adult adaptation definitely causes me to raise an eyebrow, wondering just what kind of attempt at a movie we're going to get, but the director being Philip Noyce and with a cast that includes Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep is definitely worthy of notice. The film is an adaptation of Lois Lowry's 1994 Newbery Medal winning novel and centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Swift (ugh) and Katie Holmes co-star. The film is set »

Meryl Streep: "I Thought I Was Too Ugly to Be an Actress"

Meryl Streep is returning to college! The 64-year-old Oscar winner recently visited Indiana University, where she accepted an honorary doctoral degree from the Bloomington school. During her acceptance speech, Streep revealed she wasn't so confident about her looks at the time she started acting. "I was always in plays, but I thought it was vain to be an actress," Streep admitted. "Plus, I thought I was too ugly to be an actress. Glasses weren't fabulous then." Streep went on, "Many of my friends woke up at 3 years of age and said, 'I have to be on stage.' I never had that. I've always been an omnivore, interested in way too many things, but I found the one profession »

'I Thought I Was Too Ugly to Be an Actress,' Says Meryl Streep

21 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Meryl Streep is considered the greatest actress of her generation -- and possibly of all time -- but the Oscar-winning star recently revealed that she used to think she wasn't pretty enough to make it in her chosen profession.

Streep made those comments last week after accepting an honorary doctorate degree from Indiana University -- awarded by the Bloomington school for the actress's humanitarian and social justice work -- and told the crowd that she had second-guessed her career path for years.

"I think I was probably like every other girl who puts on a princess dress and expects everyone to pay full and total attention. And most of us grow out of that," Streep said. " ... I was always in plays, but I thought it was vain to be an actress. Plus, I thought I was too ugly to be an actress. Glasses weren't fabulous then."

Despite feeling self-conscious, Streep still performed, »

Craig Zadan, Neil Meron to Produce Oscar Show Again

21 April 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have been set to produce their third consecutive Oscar show, which will be held Feb. 22. The producers will next choose the host, but no word yet on whether Ellen DeGeneres will repeat, or if the duo will pick someone new.

The move was not a surprise, given the healthy ratings for the duo’s last two shows. The March 2 Oscars were TV’s most-watched entertainment telecast in 10 years and attracted the biggest viewership in 14 years, according to the Academy. The show drew an average audience of 45.4 million total viewers, delivering a 13.7 rating among adults 18–49 (Live+7), and reached 74.6 million viewers watching 6+ minutes, the best since 2004.

There were more than 1 billion impressions generated on Twitter and 25 million interactions on Facebook. DeGeneres’ selfie (including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper and other attendees) became the most retweeted photo of all time with 32.8 million views. Aside from DeGeneres, interest »
