Halle Berry: It's Hard to Get Roles as a Woman of Color

27 February 2015 6:44 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Not enough. Halle Berry became the first African-American woman to win a Best Actress in a Leading Role Oscar in 2002, and 13 years later, she remains the only one.  Berry, who gave a memorably emotional speech accepting her award for Monster's Ball, spoke to The Guardian about the lack of opportunities for black women in Hollywood, and her thoughts on the Oscar. "I’m disappointed," she told the publication of the lack of subsequent black Best Actress winners. "I’m inspired though, when I see how many people of [...] »

Halle Berry Talks Race and Hollywood - and What the Oscar Didn't Do for Her

27 February 2015 6:30 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Winning an Oscar doesn't give you the keys to the kingdom. At least, it didn't for Halle Berry. The actress, 48, who took home the Academy Award in 2002 for Monster's Ball - and remains the only African-American woman to win Best Actress - tells the Guardian that it didn't pave the way for her to star in popular mainstream movies. "If anybody tells you after winning an Oscar they can pick out things that will be hits, they're lying!" Berry says in the interview, in which she touches on issues of race in Hollywood - and admits she's "disappointed" that no »

Monica Bellucci, 50, Is the Oldest 'James Bond' Girl, And She Prefers 'Bond Woman'

26 February 2015 8:44 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

James Bond will soon be seducing someone his own age.

Monica Bellucci, 50, is the oldest Bond love interest in the franchise's history, and is four years older than her sexy co-star, 46-year-old Daniel Craig. The Italian actress admitted to The Sunday Times that she was shocked when director Sam Mendes called to tell her she landed the highly coveted role in Spectre. "My first thought was, 'How can I be a Bond girl at 50?'" she recalled. "I just blurted out, 'I'm not a girl, I'm a woman, I'm a mature woman. Do I have to replace Judi Dench?'"

"I told Sam he would be a hero among women for casting me in Spectre," Bellucci quipped. "For the first time in history, James Bond is going to have a story with a mature woman."

Before Bellucci, the oldest Bond girl was Honor Blackman who portrayed Pussy Galore »

Halle Berry: ‘If an Oscar winner tells you they can pick out hits, they’re lying!’

26 February 2015 6:39 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Still the only black woman to have won the best actress Oscar, Berry talks about frankly about the difficulty of finding great characters to play and her feelings about the state of the film industry

Hi Halle. Your film Frankie and Alice, about a woman with a multiple personality disorder, is coming out after having been on the shelf since 2009 (1). Can you even remember making it?

Oh, absolutely. When something is that important to you, and you put your blood, sweat and tears into it, I doubt you’ll ever forget it. My first meeting with Alice (2), the day I got to work with Phylicia Rashad who I just absolutely adored, the day Stellan Skarsgård and I did our first scene together... When people say: ‘there’s no way you’re going to make a little movie about this subject no one cares about’, I think you remember every step of the way. »

Empire Recap: Break a Legacy

25 February 2015 10:54 PM, PST | | See recent news »

My fellow Americans, we received some devastating news this week, courtesy of Fox’s Empire: We are all just Boo-Boo Kitties, chasing our tails and kidding ourselves that we’ll ever keep it as real — or as tight — as Cookie Lyon.

I mean, try this one on for size: Ex-con Cookie walks into a celebrity soirée, spies her barely-legal rapper son with the fortysomething girlfriend he refers to as “Mama,” and begins throwing shade like a bamboo umbrella.

'Empire' Episode 8 Recap: The Lyons, The Snitch, and the Boardroom

25 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The week’s Empire was all about family, starting with the flashback to Cookie saying goodbye to her young sons before being sentenced to jail, and ending with dramatic implications for every member of the Lyon family.

Last Week: 'Empire' Episode 7 Recap: Winners, Losers, and Truth Bombs

Here’s a look at the drama that "The Lyon’s Roar" brought to Empire’s central clan.


It was a ground-breaking episode for the middle Lyon son. After meeting openly gay filmmaker Ryan Morgan (Eka Darville), Jamal was inspired to come out publicly at the White Party, changing the lyrics to one of Lucious’ famous songs and singing "this the kind of song that makes a man love a man." The party crowd and Lyon family all loved it...everyone except Lucious of course.


Jamal also shared an adorable moment bonding with his new daughter Lola over the Lyons’ love of music and singing "The Lion Sleeps »

How X-Men: Days of Future Past derailed the X-Men franchise

24 February 2015 2:48 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on why X-Men: Days of Future Past has derailed the X-Men franchise…

I grew up with the X-Men franchise, and found myself getting less and less invested with every movie. They haven’t aged well, and there’s something a bit dull about some of the drama, especially that centered around Jean Grey, Wolverine, and Cyclops.  There’s the Rogue and Iceman subplot that in retrospect feels really Twilight-ish.  There’s also the fact that up to this point every X-Men movie has had Wolverine in it, and I’m burned out on it. The saving grace for the franchise was X-Men: First Class, which brought a breath of fresh air to the franchise and was something entirely new, sort of.  I even enjoyed The Wolverine, which made Logan somewhat interesting and had some interesting characters. And then this little movie called Days of Future Past came out and threw off the momentum. »

Halle Berry has a very personal reason as to why she volunteers with the Jenesse Center, the oldest domestic violence intervention program in Los Angeles. "I'm a victim of domestic violence," the Oscar winner said tonight at unite4:good's unite4:humunity gala, where she was honored for work with the center.
