Rihanna Reveals Her Pick for Sexiest Man Alive

20 August 2014 4:42 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rihanna thinks a funny man is sexy.

Rihanna knows how to pull off sexy – having made the sexiest and hottest lists for FHM and Maxim and having been named Esquire's 2011 Sexiest Woman Alive. But her idea of a sexy man may surprise you!

Pics: Rihanna’s Most Scandalous Shots

In an interview with Elle, Rihanna takes the attention off herself to praise other celebrities.

She says, "Penelope Cruz is the sh*t. If I could wake up and look like her tomorrow, that would be great. Mia Wallace [Uma Thurman's Pulp Fiction character] is gangsta. She’s epic."

More telling about what she likes, she says that Vince Vaughn is the sexiest man alive, "He's amazing. Fantastic."

In terms of keeping us guessing, she says she’s living by Leonardo DiCaprio's words, "Avoid obviousness. That's what makes you create something, that's the excitement, that's the thrill."

'Spider-Man 2', 'Only Lovers Left Alive', 'Y Tu Mama Tambien' and More On DVD & Blu-ray This Week

19 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 For as much as everyone on the Internet claims to hate this movie it will be interesting to see how well it does in DVD and Blu-ray sales. Personally, while I didn't love The Amazing Spider-Man 2, I also didn't hate it with all the fiery passion everyone else seems to have, but hey, what can you doc It clearly has contributed to the sinking of the franchise as Sony attempts to refocus and move their attention from the webslinger for a while and over to films spinning off from this latest attempt at creating a franchise.

Only Lovers Left Alive One of the best films of 2014 and one I was recently asked if it was worth a blind buy. That's a tough one, but I think it's safe to say that if Only Lovers Left Alive, a "laughing quietly to myself" film about modern day »

Sacha Baron Cohen kisses Rebel Wilson on set of hooligan comedy Grimsby

18 August 2014 4:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sacha Baron Cohen was pictured kissing his co-star Rebel Wilson on the set of comedy caper Grimsby in South Africa over the weekend (August 17).

The 42-year-old actor was spotted wearing an England shirt and a red and white novelty hat while sporting an uneven fringe and long sideburns, as he shot scenes in Cape Town.

The Malay quarter was transformed into a city in Chile during filming of a fictional football match between the South American country and England.

Baron Cohen and Pitch Perfect star Wilson were seen kissing tenderly on the lips, surrounded by fellow football supporters cheering and waving flags while milling around after the match.

The Louis Leterrier-directed spy spoof stars Mark Strong as a black ops agent who goes on the run with his long lost hooligan brother (Baron Cohen). The Borat star co-wrote the screenplay along with Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham.

Bart & Fleming: Digital Fascism, William Goldman’s Timeless Line; Print Woes

10 August 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this weekly Sunday column, two old friends get together and grind their axes on the movie business. Off last Sunday, the boys have a lot on their minds.

Fleming: We have entered an age of digital fascism; render an opinion against the grain, and disagreement is followed by insults and threats to end careers. Because of an opinion.

Bart: Are you referring to Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Pedro Almodovar being attacked for signing that petition charging Israel with practicing genocide in the Gaza? It was certainly not a smart move on their part.

Fleming: I get that. Anyone paying attention can see Israel’s existence comes out of an unimaginable genocide attempt in WWII. I wonder if Bardem and Cruz read the fine print when the petition was put under their noses. Provoked by »

Chasing the Truth in Gaza – Fiction, Reality and Outright Lies

8 August 2014 8:12 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Like everyone else, I've been watching the media war surrounding the military conflict in Israel and Gaza with equal fascination and horror. Images of bleeding Palestinian children, of tiny corpses, of grief-maddened mothers tell a story. But they tell only part of a story. Now we have images of sophisticated tunnels, complete with electricity and communications systems, burrowed dozens of feet beneath the ground, built to kidnap and terrorize Israelis. They tell a different part of the story. Also read: Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Pedro Almodovar Condemn Israel for Gaza Attacks As outside observers, it is all too difficult for us to know. »

Lea Seydoux is Rumored as Top Choice for Role in James Bond 24

8 August 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following news that the script for James Bond 24 had to be overhauled in order to add some more thrills to the proceedings, a new rumors has popped up concerning a co-star for franchise star Daniel Craig. Previous rumors have pegged Penelope Cruz and Chiwetel Ejiofor as potential new cast members for the next film in the spy franchise, and now Schmoes Knows, who has a decent track record lately, has learned that Blue is the Warmest Color star Lea Seydoux is currently the studio's top choice for some sort of part in the sequel from Skyfall director Sam Mendes, though no specifics were revealed at this time. Read on! While it would be cool to see an actress of Seydoux's caliber enter the James Bond universe, the actress already played with spies in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, where she was an assassin who faced off with the Impossible »

Is Blue Is The Warmest Color Breakout Lea Seydoux Wanted For Bond 24?

8 August 2014 5:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lately, there has been next to no news about Bond 24, which is currently set to arrive next November, but that may be changing in the coming weeks now that screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been recruited to punch up writer John Logan‘s script, a reversal of the situation on Skyfall, where Logan was enlisted to tweak a treatment by Purvis and Wade. Despite the massive success of Skyfall, the still untitled Bond 24, which director Sam Mendes calls a continuation of the last film, has been a long time coming. Now, we’re hearing that producers may finally be zeroing in on a new Bond Girl.

According to Schmoes Know, which has broken some big scoops and been right in the past, the producers want Lea Seydoux, who drew raves for her explicit breakout turn in the French lesbian drama Blue is the Warmest Color, to »

Stars Face Hollywood Backlash in War of Words Over Israel

6 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

When the latest battle in Gaza finally is over, as someday it will be, hard feelings could linger in the corner offices of Hollywood toward the stars who have voiced anti-Israel sentiments. But will the artists who criticize Israel military strikes -- particularly married Spaniards Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, who accused the country of "genocide" in a widely circulated July 25 letter -- suffer career backlash in a town whose power brokers tend to be strong supporters of Israel? So far, Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh is the only studio head willing to go public with his disgust. "As the grandson

Get Up Close to Penélope Cruz in Her New Lancôme Ads

5 August 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Choosing a favorite feature on Penélope Cruz is one of those shooting fish in a barrel type of activities. Pretty much everything about her is drop dead gorgeous. Sigh. But in her latest Lancôme ads, her eyes are the real draw. We'd recognize those famous peepers from a mile away. And even though the 40-year-old Spanish beauty clearly has excellent genes on her side, she's got some help courtesy Lancôme's newest mascara, Grandiôse. Lancôme's Grandiôse mascara has a 25-degree angle swan neck wand for those full, Penélope-level lashes. And this new formula is the first Lancôme mascara to use Lancôme's Native Rose-Cell »

2015 Oscar Predictions: First Look at the Best Supporting Actress Category

5 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Considering I have 23 contenders in my 2015 Oscar predictions for Best Supporting Actress at this moment and the fact I've only seen two of the movies those 23 actresses star in, I think it's safe to say these are rather wild spit-ball predictions at this moment. However, we have to start somewhere and in that sense, it's probably no surprise one of the two performances I've actually seen tops my first look at the category. At #1 I have Patricia Arquette for her performance in Boyhood. It's a pick many will probably consider ridiculous considering IFC hardly has a budget to mount a serious Oscar campaign, but this is a film and a performance we can keep alive as fans of the film. Critics, commenters and film fans alike can help show support for what will undoubtedly be one of the best performances of the year. Will it be the best in the »

Following close on the heels of last week’s open letter penned by Spanish filmmakers including Pedro Almodovar, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, a handful of Korean movie-biz professionals and others have added their voices to the chorus in calling for an end to the violence in Gaza.

Relativity's Ryan Kavanaugh: Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz Letter on Israel 'Makes My Blood Boil' (Exclusive)

4 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Relativity Media CEO Ryan Kavanaugh has become the first major Hollywood executive to weigh in on last week's controversial letter, signed by Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, that denounced what it called Israeli "genocide." "It makes my blood boil," Kavanaugh told The Hollywood Reporter. "As the grandson of Holocaust survivors, anyone calling it Israeli 'genocide' vs. protecting themselves are either the most ignorant people about the situation and shouldn't be commenting, or are truly anti-Semitic." In response to the escalating conflict in Gaza, Cruz and Bardem were among a group of Spanish film luminaries to pen

Everything about Penélope Cruz's latest short film for L'Agent by Agent Provocateur is H-o-t. You've got a group of models dancing around in super sexy lingerie. Hot. It takes place in a desert.

That's in addition to co-designing the collection with her sister Monica Cruz and Sarah Shotton, creative director of Agent Provocateur. So what's her favorite piece from the line?
