Tom Cruise never really went everywhere, and yet he was gone for a while. Something inexplicable happened around the Katie Holmes era (Ok, it wasn't inexplicable. In fact it was discussed constantly. But for dramatic purposes, let's be vague) when the star of Top Gun, A Few Good Men and Jerry Maguire became... Unpalatable. It wasn't that he had a few flops. Heck, Brad Pitt and George Clooney's names do nothing at the box office. Denzel Washington has made the same troubled-hero film about eight times now. And did you know that Johnny Depp sometimes makes films not directed by Tim Burton or about pirates? We generalize. But for real, the very name Tom Cruise just hasn't been »
Anyone growing into pop culture consciousness during the mid-2000s will be familiar with a certain type of Tom Cruise, one labeled with some criticism in a recent Buzzfeed article as “Tom Cruise 2.0.” To them, Tom Cruise may have first become familiar as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible movie, as an action star who, in spite of fearful insurance agents and publicists, prefers to do his own stunts—especially if they include declaring maniacal love for Katie Holmes atop Oprah Winfrey’s couch. He was probably their first introduction to the alien world of Scientology, or perhaps already known as the face of another hero thrust into the supernatural, having once served as the model for the titular character in Disney’s Aladdin.
This Tom Cruise, in spite of several critical successes in the past 10 years, has yet to shake completely the straws of tabloid fodder that prick up every time someone dares, »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

The good, the bad and the cleavage-baring Jenner sisters! From the stylish streets to glamorous red carpet events, Hollywood's famous fashionistas stepped out this week in their favorite couture creations. Kylie Jenner stole the spotlight at a "Paper Towns" screening in Los Angeles, where she and sister Kendall Jenner turned up to show support for their close friend and the film's star, Cara Delevingne. The 17-year-old high school grad, who was rocking blue hair for the occasion, turned heads in a nude bra top, matching sheer skirt and a suede jacket. While we weren't digging Kylie's racy outfit, Kendall looked gorgeous in two-piece burgundy look from Zimmermann, featuring a keyhole detail and double slits in the skirt. Newly single Charlize Theron had us scratching our heads when she stepped out at the "Dark Places" in Los Angeles in a Christian Dior mini -- a rather childish choice for her big night. »

Katie Holmes needs to beef up her vocabulary before her next “Tonight Show” appearance. The “Ray Donovan” actress appeared on the NBC show Thursday and played a game of Say Anything with host Jimmy Fallon. The game was simple: The two take turns saying random words, and the first person to stumble, blank or repeat a word gets a piece of tape stuck on their face. Holmes started off fine, but stumbled early on in the first round. As a result, Fallon was allowed to put a piece of tape right across her nose. See video: Jake Gyllenhaal Gets the Taste Slapped Out. »

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.
First up, "Dawson Creek" star, Katie Holmes (sorry, this is forever how we will identify her), who stopped by "The Tonight Show" to play "Say Anything" with Jimmy Fallon. Basically, they took turns saying words at each other and she ended up covered in tape. Excellent.
Over on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Meghan Trainor stopped by and a) was surprisingly hilarious, b) delivered a great impression of her brother's drunk girlfriend, and c) lives with her siblings in some rented mansion. »

Source: Facebook, Twitter user MsSepe Two people had very different Suri Cruise sightings involving ice cream this week. When told together, these stories perfectly sum up both her dedication to dessert and will to persevere. It all started on Monday. Michael, who asked to be identified by his first name, spotted Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's 9-year-old in NYC. "Just passed Katie Holmes and Suri on the street," he wrote on Facebook. "Suri was throwing a fit and wanting ice cream. Katie would not give in. Stars. They're just like our parents when we were kids." Just one day later, Twitter user Veronica Sepe saw Suri eating the sweet treat. "Holy sh*t I just walked by Suri Cruise eating an ice cream cone. By far my best celebrity sighting to date," she tweeted. Veronica later told Popsugar Suri treated herself to chocolate ice cream. "She was with two other girls, »
Julia Roberts ''never gives direction'' to her hairstylist and makeup artist. Genevieve Herr has been doing the 47-year-old actress' red carpet make-up for over a dozen years, and has revealed Julia has absolutely no input when it comes to her hair and face, allowing the ''experts'' to do their work. The make-up artist said: ''Julia never gives directions. She says, 'You're the experts,' and she sits there and is 100 percent all ours.'' Genevieve - who has also worked on actress Katie Holmes - revealed Julia is ''always laughing'', and, with this in mind, opted for ''fun'' pink lips when it came to the Lancome ambassador celebrating the beauty brand's 80th birthday in Paris. She said: ''Julia is always laughing, so I try to keep her makeup fun because that fits her personality.'' For the special day, Genevieve also used a weightless foundation, due to the 'Pretty Woman' actress being ''older'', »

"Chi-Raq" stars Teyonah Parris in a modernized version of the classic Greek play "Lysistrata," in which the titular character goes on a sex strike to protest black-on-black gun violence. Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, D.B. Sweeney, Harry Lennix, Steve Harris, Angela Bassett, John Cusack and Sameul L. Jackson also star in the film. The title, "Chi-Raq," derives from the nickname that developed for Chicago after being compared to Iraq and its violence.

Take the sons of an ageing lowlife Boston hood and transport them to Hollywood. The premise is like Entourage reimagined by Dennis Lehane. But since 2013, Showtime’s Ray Donovan has quietly built a reputation as a powerful family/crime drama. The criminal turned Hollywood fixer Ray (Liev Schreiber) is our focus as he mops up the messes of his Hollywood clients while dealing with the far more combustible conflicts in his shipwreck of a family. The show started on Showtime in the Us on Sunday and returns to Sky Atlantic tonight, bringing with it some of the strongest character acting around.

Esther Newberg has been a titan among book agents for nearly 40 years. But the co-head of publishing at ICM Partners still enjoyed a career first last year when she played matchmaker between two agency clients: Katie Holmes and author Annie Weatherwax.
Holmes optioned Weatherwax’s debut novel, “All We Had,” as the vehicle for her film directorial debut after a meeting with book department agents set up by ICM’s New York talent head Adam Schweitzer. The movie, penned by “The Fault in Our Stars” director Josh Boone, begins production in August.
“In 39 years, that never happened before,” Newberg says of being part of making a book-to-movie deal happen so quickly. It’s an example of the new spirit at the agency in the three years since ICM underwent a management buyout by 29 senior agents and execs.
By all accounts, the agency is a more harmonious place, but it is »
