Kirsten Dunst isn't afraid to show a lot of skin!The "Melancholia" star graces the cover of the June issue of Madame Figaro, where she poses completely topless in a pair of jeans.The actress, who has been a household name since "Interview With a Vampire," admits that she envies the effortless glamour of some of Hollywood's leading ladies, including Gena Rowlands, Anjelica Huston, Julianne Moore and Charlotte Rampling. "[They are] women who have confidence in themselves, who do not seek to prove anything. It is a quality that is lost among young actresses," she tells the mag. Although she has appeared in big-budget productions like "Spider-Man," Dunst feels more appreciated by her fans in France, than in the United States. "I feel more appreciated, more special, in France," she explains. "In the United States, if you are not in the latest superhero movie, people will forget. In France, it is different »

Mark your calendars, cinephiles. From a rarely seen John Cassavetes masterpiece to an iconic 1970s musical, The Criterion Collection's Summer lineup couldn't be sweeter. (Watch clips below.) First up on August 12 is Cassavetes' penultimate film "Love Streams." Once in a blue moon, this delirious psychodrama from 1984 pops up at repertory theaters, but over the years it has been something of an elusive treasure for film-lovers. It stars Cassavetes himself, and the always-operatic Gena Rowlands, as debauched siblings who reconvene over the course of a few days while Sarah (Rowlands) tries to broker custody of her daughter, and Robert (Cassavetes), a writer, drinks and smokes himself to near-death. Wrought with soul-crushingly good performances, it's one of Cassavetes' most dreamlike and, as it were, most personal films. On August 19, two films from Spanish-speaking masters hit shelves: Alfonso Cuaron's menage-a-trois travelogue "Y Tu Mama Tambien" (2002), and Pedro Almodovar's splashy »

Los Angeles (AP) — A big reason film actors are drawn to TV is that it offers the sort of character-driven projects found less and less in a movie world tilted toward blockbusters. That's partly why Josh Hartnett jumped into "Penny Dreadful," an eight-part series debuting Sunday on Showtime (10 p.m. Edt) as part of a free preview weekend. He plays a troubled American, a gun for hire, ensnared by Victorian London's dark side in the horror drama-cum-psychological study. Hartnett also appreciated the guarantee that the project would be marketed and presented to an audience, something he's become painfully aware isn't always the case with independent films. "I've had worthy films not get a correct release, and have people come up to me later and say how much they enjoyed the film," seen after the fact online or on DVD, he said. "It's gratifying to know that people go back and see stuff, »

Whether he’s on stage, television or film, Cheyenne Jackson is hard to ignore. Maybe it’s his tall, classically handsome looks or the fact that he’s just so damn comfortable in his own skin. Regardless, there’s an irresistible appeal to the man that has served him (and us) very well.
While his work in 30 Rock and Glee and films like Behind The Candelabra and United 93 brought him attention for his acting skills, his heart is and always will be with music. This weekend he brings his “Music Of The Mad Men Era” show with the La Philharmonic to downtown La’s Walt Disney Concert Hall. He’ll be joined by Jane Lynch, Rebecca Romijn and musical director Ben Toth for the one-night-only performance.
Earlier this week, TheBacklot sat down with Jackson at The Abbey in West Hollywood to talk about his career, being out, tattoos, how »

During this interview to promote the return of the show, the ridiculously talented Tatiana Maslany, who expertly pulls off playing every clone, talked about running on adrenaline to get through the season, developing the different clones, doing a backstory for each clone, how she gets into each character, the process for shooting more than one clone in the same scene, how this project has changed her, what it’s like to be in the public eye, mastering all of the different accents, »

Marion Post (Gena Rowlands) didn’t realise she was hated. An upper middle-class intellectual (like many of Woody Allen’s characters), she’s a professor of Philosophy who overhears a neighbour (Mia Farrow) revealing her private life to a psychiatrist. Self-disciplined and successful, Marion should be considered an inspiration – but alas, she lacks passion. Her husband (Ian Holm) mocks the idea of sex on the floorboards and the potential lover (Gene Hackman) that got away was rebuffed despite a mutual attraction. Bearing similarities to his latest film, »

Why does cinema favor the mad woman? It's easy to see why Oscar does: roles like Jasmine French give an actress space to not only chew but swallow and spit up scene after scene. Cate Blanchett will almost certainly win Best Actress this year for her frittered, diabolical performance in "Blue Jasmine" as cinema's archetypical woman-on-the-verge: that pill-popping, martini-swilling mad Medea who men fear and women sometimes dream of (being? playing? escaping into?).Thus, here are eight classic Oscar snubs in the Best Actress category. Bow down to Gena Rowlands in "A Woman Under the Influence." Watch clips after the jump. Also, check out our Toh! feature on eight scene-stealing female performances from 2013.1940 Who Won: Ginger Rogers ("Kitty Foyle") Who Should've Won: Joan Fontaine ("Rebecca") Who Was Nominated: Bette Davis ("The Letter"), Katharine Hepburn ("The Philadelphia Story"), Martha Scott ("Our Town") Hitchock's delirious and deliciously twisted English gothic »

With apologies to Dylan Farrow, who would attach sterner moral implications to this question than those I intend: what's your favourite Woody Allen movie of the 21st century? It's been a slightly painful question for a while now, usually drawing less-than-ringing endorsements along the lines of: "Midnight in Paris was harmless enough", or: "Vicky Cristina Barcelona, if you mute the voiceover bits." At last, however, there's an easy answer: Blue Jasmine (Warner, 12), imperfect as it is in fractious and interesting ways, is something genuinely remarkable.
Much of that comes down to Cate Blanchett's daring, last-nerve performance as the title character, a spoilt society wife experiencing the mother of all Xanax comedowns after her husband is jailed for tax fraud – a tragicomic turn of Gena Rowlands proportions that is all »

Breaking up is hard to do, yet entirely pleasurable to watch, in “If You Don’t, I Will,” an effortless fifth feature from writer-helmer Sophie Fillieres that goes down with the mildly spiked smoothness of a chilled chenin blanc — or, to reference its single funniest gag, deep-frozen champagne. Distinguished by exquisite performances from Emmanuelle Devos and Mathieu Amalric as a bourgeois couple unsure when to call time on their marriage, the pic initially follows the dry, droll template set by so many tasteful French relationship dramedies, before venturing into less comforting emotional territory for its final act. Moderate international arthouse exposure beckons for this Berlinale Panorama premiere, which opens March 5 in France.
In one of her more harried moods, Devos’ solitude-seeking protagonist introduces herself as “Gena Rowlands” to a bemused stranger, which is least a partial indication of what Fillieres is aiming for tonally with this study of splintered hearts. »

The 37-year-old actress grew up in a town of 700, Winthrop, Iowa, and daydreamed of becoming a journalist.
"I grew up loving current events," Monaghan tells Zap2it. "You grow up looking out when there are not a lot of other things going on in your hometown."
Monaghan lived in town, but her family had a farm and grew corn and beans. Her summer vacations were spent detasseling corn.
"I would go through rows and snap it off for $5 an hour," she says. Monaghan left Winthrop for Chicago, where she put herself through college by modeling for catalogs.
