Multihyphenate Lindsey Rosin and her producing partner Jordan Ross made noise this summer with the success of their legit adaptation of the cult-fave movie “Cruel Intentions.” On Sunday night, the pair hope to strike again with their latest nostalgic endeavor, “The Unauthorized Oc Musical.”
The tuner, inspired by the teen-centric soap that ran on Fox from 2003 to 2007, is set to premiere as a one-night only event at Hollywood’s Montalban Theater, where it broke a house record for selling out within 15 minutes.
“I think in general, I feel like a child of the ’90s,” Rosin says of her affinity for nostalgic projects like “Cruel Intentions” and “The O.C.” She adds, “That’s a time that will always be special to me and obviously, a lot of people my age. I like to say my spirit animal is a teenage girl and I feel that more strongly as time goes on. »

Reese Witherspoon channeled her Legally Blonde character Elle Woods while leaving her office building in La on Friday. The actress was joined by her 15-year-old daughter, Ava Phillippe, whose blond hair and sweet Summer dress made her a dead ringer for her famous mom.

Another year, another Forbes list detailing the highest earnings in Hollywood for us to dissect. Much to the surprise of no one, it’s the franchise stalwarts toplining the actors and actresses list, with Robert Downey Jr. and The Hunger Games‘ Jennifer Lawrence occupying the top spots in each respective category.
First up, the industry’s highest-earning actresses. Unsurprisingly, Lawrence takes the crown as the biggest star in the field, with her continuing success in Lionsgate’s Ya franchise supplemented with roles in the likes of the X-Men series and David O. Russell’s Joy. In claiming the coveted number one spot, the actress pipped Marvel stalwart Scarlett Johansson and Melissa McCarthy, while China’s Bingbing Fan and Jennifer Aniston rounded out the first five places.
As Forbes’ Natalie Robehmed notes, Lawrence’s position atop the highest earners comes down to The Hunger Games, stating that “no other actress could play Katniss Everdeen, »

Forbes rolled out its annual list of the highest-paid actresses in the world this week, and sitting at the top of the ranking this year was none other than Katniss Everdeen.
"Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence easily outranked the rest of the list, banking a whopping $52 million over the past 12 months. That total comes thanks to her role in that popular Ya franchise, as well as her continuing involvement in the "X-Men" series, though Forbes notes that Lawrence also has a lucrative contract with fashion brand Dior that pads her already-impressive income.
It doesn't take an eagle-eyed observer to notice, though, that Lawrence's total -- and the rest of the women on Forbes's Top 18 list -- don't come close to matching the money-making of their male counterparts. Lawrence, for example, still lags well behind top-earning actor Robert Downey Jr., who banked $80 million in 2015, and all the top-earning women on Forbes's »

Forbes have released their annual list of the highest paid actresses of 2015, and Jennifer Lawrence has topped it, with $52 million earned in the last 12 months. Lawrence has had a great year, starring in the penultimate ‘Hunger Games‘ movie, as well as turns in X-Men: Days Of Future Past (though that may have fallen into last year’s pay-packet), and the poorly received Serena. She has a promising 2015-2016 too with a reported $20 million going into the bank for sci-fi drama Passengers with Chris Pratt, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, and the awards-buzzed Joy.
Scarlett Johannson was number two on the list with $35 million earned, with Melissa McCarthy having a storming year with $23 million banked. Chinese actress Bingbing Fan, who appeared in ‘Days Of Future Past’ as well, came in at number four with $21 million earned. »

Love her or hate her, Jennifer Lawrence made quite a lot more money than you, any of your friends or family and all of the rest of the actresses in the world during 2015. While Katniss Everdeen is short on bread, this celebrity certainly is not, as Forbes names her the highest paid actress of 2015. Not just here in the states, but worldwide.
So, how much did Jennifer Lawrence make in 2015? Are you sure you really want to know? The 25-year-old pulled in $52 million before taxes over 12 months. She beat number two on the list, Scarlett Johansson, by $16.5 million. The Avengers: Age of Ultron star pulled in $35.5 million. This year, Forbes changed things up, including actresses from all around the world. Despite knocking down these borders, only one non-American managed to make the list. Chinese actress Bingbing Fan landed at number four, just behind comedian Melissa McCarthy. The Spy star pulled in $23 million, »
A “hot” new release didn’t sell enough copies to budge “Insurgent” and “Home” from the two top spots on the national home-video sales charts for the week ending Aug. 16.
Warner’s “Hot Pursuit,” a comedy-action film about an uptight cop (Reese Witherspoon) charged with protecting the gabby widow of a drug boss (Sofia Vergara), debuted at No. 3 on Nielsen VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart–still a strong debut given the film’s less-than-spectacular domestic box office take of $34.6 million.
Lionsgate’s “Insurgent,” the sequel to the futuristic actioner “Divergent,” and DreamWorks Animation’s “Home,” distributed on home video by 20th Century Fox, held onto the No. 1 and No. 2 positions on both VideoScan as well as the research firm’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
All three films were released early on electronic sellthrough/Digital HD. “Insurgent” and “Hot Pursuit” were available for downloading two weeks before their disc release, »
