Lily James' 'Cinderella' Waistline: Corset or CGI?

6 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Corset training is all the rage in Hollywood as a slimming fad, but as a costuming choice?

News: Kim Kardashian Is 'Waist Training' With A Super-Tight Corset

Cinderella star Lily James has come under fire in recent weeks for her tiny waistline in the Disney movie and promotional materials. Critics are crying Photoshop, but the actress claims that it’s her natural slim look, with the aid of a corset.

"I naturally have a really small waist and then the corset pulls it in and the skirt makes it bigger so I think the perspective makes it look even smaller," James told Et correspondent Jason Dundas at Sunday’s premiere in L.A. "But it's totally just my waist. There's no CGI."

Best of Late Night TV: Ryan Reynolds Plays 'Egg Russian Roulette,' Cate Blanchett Finally Explains '#SuckIt' (Video)

16 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jimmy Fallon had himself a busy Monday night on "The Tonight Show," playing games with Ryan Reynolds and Kelly Clarkson and talking to Terrence Howard about the "Empire" star's (hilarious, in hindsight) Oscars flub.

Jimmy referenced how Kelly said it's been hard for her to find people to do duets with, so Jimmy sang a medley of duets with her. Moving on to Ryan, Jimmy played "Egg Russian Roulette" with Mr. Reynolds. They had to smash eggs on the tops of their heads without knowing which ones were raw. In his sit-down interview, Ryan did a pretty great Aaron Neville impression and said he thinks his baby girl might be allergic to sleep, »

Review: 'Cinderella' conjures some new magic from a classic tale

2 March 2015 3:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the past half decade Walt Disney Studios has spent a great deal of time and money to create live action versions of some of their own animated classics.  While these films have performed at the box office, creatively they were often lacking.  The studio may have finally found its own fairy godmother in the form of director Kenneth Branagh and his new adaptation of “Cinderella.” The Oscar nominated filmmaker is best known for shepherding new versions of "Hamlet" and "Henry V" to the big screen.  The former was released almost 20 years ago, but Branagh earned a reputation for bringing a modern sense of realism to Shakespeare's creations even if the stories were still set in the distant past.  This talent made him a smart choice to direct the underrated "Thor" and an even better hire for a movie that could have been just another shell for Disney’s consumer product division. »

2 March 2015 1:45 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Hopefully Lily James got to keep this dress after midnight, because it's just stunning. The "Cinderella" star looked like a true Disney princess at the film's red carpet premiere in Hollywood on Sunday night, decked out in a gorgeous Elie Saab couture gown, Christian Louboutin heels and simply beautiful hair and makeup. The actress was joined at the event by costars Richard Madden and Cate Blanchett, but all the attention was on Cinderella herself. The premiere was packed full of celebs and their kids, many of who wanted to score some face time with the fairytale beauty ... or, at least, the woman playing her. Mario Lopez's adorable daughter looked excited to come face-to-face with James. Sporting her own cute, butterfly-covered dress and tiara, the event was a dream come true for little Gia.   And she wasn't alone! Ian Ziering also hit the red carpet with his wife Erin and their daughter Mia, »

You know Lily James from Downton Abbey and Richard Madden from Game of Thrones, but the release of Disney's Cinderella on March 13 is bound to make them even more familiar. On Sunday, the stars gave us a picture-perfect preview of what we can expect as their careers soar to new heights, stunning on the red carpet together at the movie's premiere in La. No one was more excited than the leading lady herself, who chatted with Popsugar about the moment she felt like Cinderella. Lily simply could not stop smiling, laughing, dropping her jaw with joy, and spinning around to show off her princess-worthy gown. And then there was Richard, who looked like a modern-day Prince Charming with his sexy scruff and fitted suit. As he told us, though, his dancing in the movie didn't come as naturally. To top it all off, both stars scored face time with Cate Blanchett, »

We're only three months into 2015 but already it feels like blockbuster season is here.

Robin Hood: Origins script being shopped around by Knights of the Round Table writer

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

Had enough of origin stories? Well, the man behind Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie Knights of the Round Table is shopping around his new script Robin Hood: Origins.

According to Deadline, Joby Harold has written a “dark and gritty” take on the infamous character. At present no studios are interested in developing it, but Sony are planning on a Robin Hood movie and could be interested in using Harold’s script as its basis. The Sony plan is to create a shared universe type franchise based on Robin Hood characters, similar to Marvel’s superhero movies.

Disney are also working on a Robin Hood movie entitled Nottingham & Hood, but its unlikely they will be interested in Harold’s script as their vision is to be more like Pirates of the Caribbean.

Robin Hood last graced the silver screen in Ridley Scott’s 2010 effort starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, »

Ella (Lily James) meets the dashing prince Kit (Richard Madden) in the first of six new clips from Disney's Cinderella. The second clip shows how Ella suddenly became Cinderella, thanks to the "clever" observations of her stepsisters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera), while her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) denies her a place at the table.
